Is the grass actually greener?

It's been a few years now, i'm not really sure since when though, that I've been hearing the phrase - "The grass is always greener on the other side." Well, i'm sure all of you have heard it too. Hmm...however, (pushing my specs back up my nose bridge in slow motion) have you ever thought of how TRUE this rings in your life?

Ever since your childhood days when you were a lil gal/boy and were sitting bored doing school homework when your favourite cartoon show or rather WWE (WWF in those days) was on TV, haven't you sat and thought "Phew, i wish i were in college..I'll have soo much more freedom, be able to do anything i wanted when i wanted etc!". I bet u all have. I have too. Well then, lets fast-forward to like 5-7 years later where you're sitting in your college classroom having to listen to a boring Theory of Programming lecture, where the professor himself looks so sleepy that he could drop dead anytime, and you then think, "Man! Even school was better than this! College is sucha drag, not at all what i imagined it to be! Anywayz lemme just pass out and get a job and then i'll be set free..making my own money...and will be able to do anything i wanted with it!! That'll be ultimate".

True again na?
you're maybe right now thinking "aaahhh...yup i've thought about it that way when i was fed-up with all those assignments those Profs used to keep pouring down on us as if they were Gods giving us their showers of blessing!" If so, You're not alone, we're all there with you in d same boat.

Ok...fast forward again. Present day situ. Most of my batchmates and my friends are now sitting bored in their cubicles reading this blog.(Hey guys, wazzup??!! Juz wanted to say hi!) Okie, so now everyone is tied down with this "F**d-up software industry, where we have no life, only weekends which are just too short to enjoy."

So now what does an ever-postive-chap-workin-as-a-bloody-slave-for-an-IT-company do?
Again he thinks "Man..I want a job that's really kool and has loads of cash! Hm..Now who has a job like that?! I know.. a Manager!"
So what does he do? Runs along and buys the next CAT application form the same day!!
He decided to do an MBA!!

And again the cycle continues. Let's see. What's happening here folks?
This is the classic case of "What I have now is not good enough.That Life is better! I wanna live like that!"

THE GRASS IS ALWAYS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE.

It is. It exists everywhere.How else will you explain the average poor Indian saving money and getting a plane ticket to the US of A to live the "American dream" or even better, the mallu gets a passport with the help of his father-in-law's uncle's brother's grandfather's neighbour's help to go and make it big in Dubai, or in his own accent, "Thubai"! How else will you explain us Indians running off and drooling at the sights of the California beaches while the Californians themselves come and drool at our Kovalam or Marina beaches. The Chinese runs along and buys himself "Mumbai Chicken" while the Mumbayya himself loves "Shanghai Noodles".

It reminds of a Floyd song,

"Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
In a world of magnets and miracles
Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
The ringing of the division bell had begun
Running before time took our dreams away
Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
To a life consumed by slow decay

Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
Dragged by the force of some inner tide
At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world

Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
There's a hunger still unsatisfied
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
though down this road we've been so many times

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter
The nights of wonder
With friends surrounded
The dawn mist glowing
The water flowing
The endless river

Forever and ever."

The song is aptly named "High Hopes". And that's exactly what it signifies of us insignificant humans, always in search of something we think is better, or rather, thinking of those 'good ol days', those same old days we used to curse when we were living them! Alwayz dreaming and having High Hopes of something better than the present day, instead of actually enjoying the present moment we have.

So what I think is best to do, is to totally enjoy and LIVE the moment instead of simply existing and then wishing you had something better. Cos that better day may never come, and today might the BEST day in your life. You've just wasted it away.

Like the white rapper Matt Mathers sez - "That's why I Seize the moment, try to freeze it and own it, squeeze it and hold it, cuz I consider these minutes Golden."

Consider EVERY moment of your life GOLDEN.
And OWN it and LIVE it.

Until next time...

Right on...Between yesterdays misfortunes nd tomorrows hopes there is always todays opportunity...
So enjoy today as much as u can rather dan troubling ur brain to think abt past nd future....

US said...

The word is "Carpe Diem" --> Seize the day.

The question is --> How to make this day worthy of existence?

The answer is --> Start Running

The reason -->

"Every morning, in Africa, a gazelle wakes up.
He knows he must run faster than the fastest of lions, lest he will be killed.

Every morning a lion wakes up.
He knows he must out-run the slowest gazelle, lest he will starve to death.

It doesn't matter whether you are a gazelle or a lion --
When the sun rises, you better be running.

Is the corporate world in the 21st Century any different? "
Start Running.

Further, there are several typo's in this blog entry, so reading it wasn't exactly worthy of anybody's existence.

Typo No. 1. "It reminds of a Floyd song" -- the me is missing.

Typo No. 2. No Spaces

b. enough.That
c. free..making

No wonder there are typo's in the replies also. Few of them are --> nd, dan, ur, abt ...

-----------------------------

Spell check.

Always better to use FULL words instead of shortcuts/abbr.

OH ok.. Mr.Poololoop...

most of the typos are intentional mera bhai! and some that are not are true mistakes. I didn't use a spellcheck and i don't intend to also in the future. That is why mistakes like these happen. I'm sure u got the meaning of the blog even with those mistakes right? Then why bother posting 2 comments abt something as silly like typos? ;-) (Wasting your precious time ain't ya???)
