Shortly back at my work desk after having a brief conversation with a colleague about how she lived her life until date without being led into any transgessions, not atleast in the sane knowledge of her 5 senses. Being a Christian, I am aware of the rules myself, but it is difficult to claim of being downright clean of wrongdoings.
So her little modus operandi of avoiding the sinful course are not watching movies (at all), music to her is defined under the small bracket of hymns alone, there is no concept of hanging out with friends explicitly in her vocabulary. Ofcourse she claims to have avoided lieing. All this to be on the nicer list of the Almighty.
Being well informed about Biblical teachings, I put forward my best effort to be on the same nice list. Bible abhors lies, even in case of trying situations I avoid lieing I rather just say nothing at all, until asked about it. Bible also advises us against watching anything immoral or sinful, unlike the idea of not watching movies at all, I simply fast-forward through the parts that my mind judges as vile and strongly condemn movies that solely have immoral content(I hope you know what I mean). Intoxication is another sin, about which the Bible shares a strong opinion of maintaining one’s senses at all times. And in case you fall short on doing right by the rules scripted, we have our Sundays dedicated for confessions. So everything seems to be under control uptil now.
I know the rules but I live by taking assistance of the loopholes in them… and still lay in hope of being in the acceptable-into-heaven radar.
.. signing off forever.. (:
Blind young boys, crippled kids, mothers holding almost dead little kids with thick red color popping out of the huge bandage tied on their forehead, young girls with untidy brown hair touching you constantly until we yield to their stubborn begging have now become mainstream techniques of asking for money.
A young girl, age barely reaching 10, short and untidy in existence wearing a wide dupatta across her chest covering the frock underneath as if she were wearing a saree .. walked past a few unsuccessful attempts (including me). Somehow people begging for money find couples to be easy preys.. a young unmarried Gujarati couple busy on their phones were interrupted by this little girl.. the duo bluntly refused help at first.. she did not look ready for another rejection.. and moved a little behind from her current position to a place that drew the two’s attention .. she put one of her tiny fingers inside her little nostrils for about half a second, not trying to achieve anything but annoyance from the Gujju pair.. after her little unclean stint she reached out to touch the couple in an attempt to ask for money again .. the pair could not tolerate the thought of those dirty little fingers moving close to them, jumped behind.. and extended a few coins in exchange to their freedom.
Can anyone disagree to this level of shrewdness ! (: *thug life music in background*
Whining about work overload? – ever travelled in a Mumbai local? Had an opportunity to get a good sight of the homeless? Not the ones who beg for money during the day and spend their nights in drunken revelry, the real ones – the ones who sell those small not so important items from compartment to compartment – reviewing the list of amenities each sale would grant them- when I say amenities I certainly don’t mean the pleasure arrangements we have in our mind..but those that we disregard as a necessity.
Are you still complaining? I’m not.😉😊
While I struggle to keep my blog alive amidst work and other self created adversaries (laziness – Yes ! I admit:)) .. My mother is in an attempt to maintain her social networking life and toughen my struggle. Well technically that ain’t a problem as the WiFi gives us both a fair proportion of bandwidth to operate.
After the head bugging task of being her user manual throughout her Facebook beginner days.. Now it’s time to get her through the WhatsApp phase and God knows what next! Dealing with her tiny excitements that comes along with her self accomplished discoveries is the only better part.
Well its pretty much like my own fresher struggle. :)😁
Some sorrys mean as little as the statutory warnings shown in the corner of the TV screen! 🌚💩😝 *Nobody is paying attention*
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Sweet Little Lies.”
It ain’t true. Of course not. Exceptions – lot of them.
Like for instance from the past one month I’ve been lying to myself that everything’s gonna be alright. I literally try to soak-in the Bob Marley song into my veins to feel the lie from within. But as soon as I reach my office, the office wind dries out all the soaked up motivation from my viens. Like a dash of minus’ negating all the plus’ in me for no reason.
So the peace I get for the while I’m away from this electron emitting channel is a gratitude to the soothing lie that tomorrow ought to be better. 😉
*Says me after a mood-swing* 😛 ™
