We just can't sit still and just wait for all of it to happen. We need to break free from this highway to nowhere.
We all need freedom in some way or the other.... The funny thing's that we ourselves are the key to our own freedom. We play with our own minds to bind ourselves to invisible chains we constantly get in and out of. Does this end? One has to know what the question is to start the search for the answers. We can't just go on existing. One has to live with all that life has to offer us.

When we realize our freedom life will be living in us....

Its a beautiful world...

I sometimes think that Life is somundane. Wake up in the morning go to work come back watch some TV and go to sleep. Thats what I do almost every single day. Today I had a meeting in Fort Kochi for a destination wedding. As i was in my cab travelling from Ernakulam to Fort Kochi I was looking outside my window and just thinking what a beautiful place I live in. The beautiful scenery when I go over those bridges and all that greenery. Kids playing cricket in the large feilds... and as I reach Fort Kochi those beautiful lil houses. Man.... and then the thought comes to me... I'm at work... I felt like one of the most luckiest people in the world. I realised my life aint mundane. It's only mundane when i make it mundane... but in fact this world of mine is just a beautiful world... Have to go listen to that song by Sting now... It's a beautiful day!! :)

My Initiation - Hope

I don't know what's so special about today to start my blog.... but today I feel immensely inspired and feel that I shouldn't waste a minute before I start off with this act that I've kept putting off for later for just too long.
I just watched the movie Shawshank Redemption.... finally. My friend Suraj always kept telling me about this movie. He was even sweet enought to write me a DVD with the movie. But it took me like almost 2 months for me to actually sit down and watch this movie. Man... what a movie.
The messages, the theme, the whole concept is amazing. Nothing too complicated beyond ones understanding. A wonderful story about friendship, patience and especially hope. How important hope is in ones life for one to keep on living.
My favorite quote in the movie is "Remember, Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies."
Having hope in life and in the future has always kept me going. I wouldn't imagine a life where I could think nothin good is gonna happen. This movie just helped me remember and reinstate my beleif in hope. Never stop hoping. Because thats when you will stop living.
