Just Wish......

Sometimes I feel a strong urge to shout at the top of my voice. Shout so loud that my vocal chords start paining. I know its not possible in the surroundings in which we live. But I doubt whether that will be possible even somewhere deserted.

The second thing I wish I could do was, to run, run without stopping like Tom Hanks in Forest Gump. Although while watching the movie I couldn't understand his purposeless running. But now I seriously want to do that. Run, run and run. Without caring why,where.

Dad turn sixty

My dad turns sixty today. I feel like asking him Has he achieved what all he wanted to by this time ? Like we nowadays think that after 10 years I should be here or at 30 I should have done this so in the same way he too must had some dreams. I want to ask him all those so if not already  fulfilled, may be I can help him in doing those. 

But may be like they say that a son is more close to his mom then father I also feel that a father n son have that kind of apprehensions in talking with each other. There conversations are mainly short and have subject. 

I still remember when I started going to office three years back I used to come back everyday and tell my mom everything that happened that day , both personal and professional, while standing in kitchen without even taking my shoes off, which I still do. So my dad complained to my sister that I only talk to mom and don't talk with him. I was so surprised to know that. After that I made sure to strike conversation with him after I am back from office. 

But dad is always DAD. He is still the same guy hearing whose jeep's noise I used to leave everything and run for my books. On result days in order to save myself from his scoldings I used to hide in toilets or underneath the bed. 

Ever since I am using a cell phone he calls me on phone when I am late from college or now from office. At those times I find in his voice not that authority of a father but instead its sounds more that of a friendly father. When I am late at night,hanging out with friends, he always used to call asking Are you going to come today? When I was in college this question was more sarcastic but nowadays its more to know if the front door should be kept unlocked. Sometimes he doesn't call, may be thinking that I have grown up now and should be given some freedom but I miss his calls a lot at those times. 

I know he has struggled a lot in his life and he is still struggling. 

One thing I feel bad about him is that he doesn't have any close friend and that scares me a lot. The same with my mom and may be with both of me and my sister. May be Jana's don't have that.  :)

I really want to fulfil all his dreams like Anupam kher says to Sharukh in DDLJ that if you think you are done with enjoying your life then go and enjoy mine. Its just that its the other way around here. I want to tell him that tell me what you want I will do that for you. What all you dreamt as a youngster as a grown up, I will help you fulfil those. Its not that late. 

One thing  I know for sure that he wants to own a luxury car and me and my sister are going to present him one soon. May be we missed the sixtieth birthday deadline but its better late then never. 

May god bless him with the best of health, happiness and everything.

Random Thought XXIX

Well today I was reading an article by M J Akbar that has been published in the Independence Day Special Issue of India Today, which carries articles on India by prominent personalities mainly highlighting where according to them we are lacking, what are the issues we are facing and their probable solutions etc.

I have not read all articles yet but they are really very good read.

So M J Akbar starts with this line "When does tomorrow starts?" and then he answers "if its at midnight then its good because we can prepare for that". I am bit confused about what is the meaning of his answer but nevertheless it makes me see the paradox that this question-answer has.

For me it is "When does tomorrow start?, Isn't it at midnight when most of us are sleeping ? "

Well this one is from the latest book that I finished "1984 by George Orwell".

In the AfterWord given by P K Das, he interprets this thought from the book (little improvised)

"We humans are building machines that we want should behave as humans and at the same time we are developing humans that we want to be like machines "

Quite true.....

Well as far as the book is concerned its a kind of negative utopia, which projects a world in which humans don't have any human qualities. Quite a philosophical and sociological book.

Will recommend to people who want to increase their vocabulary as the language is heavy and well articulated.
