I happened to find this abandoned cycle on my neighbor’s terrace the other day. It brought back memories that I cherished. I still remember those days when DD National channel played the serial “Street Hawk” on Sundays. Ecstasy! I used to consider myself as “The Street Hawk!” In fact, I even used to ape the serial by riding my then cycle, a white colored “BSA Champ”, in the most reckless style!
This recklessness never fetched me any thing is a different thing. The thrill, the speed, the air running fast through the hair! What else could a 10 year old ask for? This 10 year old in me is still alive, probably that’s the reason why I call my bike the night rider and drive as fast as possible!
However, these days I am seeing a negative trend setting in. there is hardly a kid in my area who rides a bicycle! All that I see around me are kids as young as 13-14 burning the road with the 2-wheelers that their parents use. I share the wall of my building compound with another family. The children there, who are almost half my age, if not more, are double in waist size than me!
Ridiculous! Are we as the present generation, or parents, or friends, or siblings failing somewhere? I guess it is high time we opened our eyes and took a reality check.
I guess it’s high time we all hit the roads and exercised. After all, isn’t it true that a country is at its best when its inhabitants are at their healthiest best?
Gloomy weather? Depressing? Nah! Time for a hot cup of Masala Chai and Mirchi Bhajiyas! Anybody game?
… well I don’t deny that I have not been blogging for some time now. There has been no reason either. Just that I did not feel like. I was plain bored and tired. No muse for whom I can write my poems. No, I did not like the idea of nature poetry. I am just not made for it.
I tried acting funny and write funny poems, but I ended up splat on my face!! Man!!! That was a comic scene by itself.
Life has been taking curious turns and that has been keeping me on the toes. I am now absolutely unaware of which way my life would take me. Just going with the flow. But yes, I have been trying to swim upstream too… just that I know it is difficult and is going to take its time.
Sometimes I wonder if all that I would do in my life is just coding. But then I reassure myself. There is something planned. And that divine plan, nobody can change. Not even the astrologers. The so called divine interpreters who claim they know the planets and the stars.
…has caused enough trouble already!! Tempers have already been running high in every possible way!! I was left with absolutely no time to blog!!!! I hope with the turn in events in my life i may be able to spend some time for this!!! Poems now seem to be a difficult stand, but then I still have no muse for whom I may write!!
May be i will go ahead and consider nature poetry as a final resort!!! Just keeping my fingers crossed!! That’s it!!
More coming from my side soon!!! So just hang on!!!
BTW, we organized quite some fun stuff here at work!! Will post picts and details about it later!!!
