Book of Life.

Yes, you might be wondering what this guy is up to now 🤔

I was just going through a book and found that there where many pages in it with many languages, words, sentences and images. To my astonishment, none of the pages were similar. Every single page was different in one or the other way. With single constant in all the pages of the book was the word “YOU”.

Having seen this in a book I realized, this is not just the case with this book. It’s pretty much the same with almost every other book we see in a book shelf. Most of the words get jumbled up to create different sentences and with words many images also get created, which sometimes will have some meaning to it and sometimes they really don’t.

Having said all these, I would now introduce the characters I created in my imaginary world to explain all that I wrote above. Pardon me for making you read this article twice. Because, I am sure you would want to correlate with the metaphors I considered to express my thoughts.

Book shelf – World we live in.

Book – Life of any individual

Pages – Phases in our life.

Languages – Diversified class of people with different culture.

Words – People around like you and me.

Sentences – Moments that get created based on the people in our life.

Images – Dreams that we create to fulfill it someday.

So bottom line is..

Be it of any language, a book is meaningful to read only when it has right set words which will create the best of pages and some memorable sentences which fulfills the images that are created before book is closed.

Never, waste a Book [Life] that is given to you. Create some valuable pages [phases of your life] so that when you look back there are no regrets but are filled with enjoyable sentences [moments] to cherish. Be sure that all your images [dreams] are completed before your book of life is closed [Last breath].

Do you love your book? 🙂 If not, then better start re-writing it soon.. 🙂

Cold Coffee & French Fries.

Let me tell you a short story of Cold Coffee aka CC and French Fries aka FF 😀

Prologue

CC will meet FF after a very long time. Irony of CC & FF is though these two are very close in reality but far off when it comes to face to face talks. Best of its kind. Short story of not so long but a short distance relationship of CC & FF.

Chapter

CC meets FF after a very long time in a coffee shop. The excitement they both carried was unmatchable. They couldn’t resist any distance between each other anymore and exchanged a tight hug which lasted for much longer time than usual in absolute silence.

Amidst this serene moment between CC and FF. There comes a noise from background.

(No more silence in the place)

CC asks FF if she is ok with the background noise. FF in a smiling tone said. If our conversation continues amidst all the background noise I will be perfectly alright. And the noise from background now knew what they needed and just left them all alone again.

And both started their conversation again. Both went on talking and talking like they would never get to meet each other again.

Amidst their conversation little did they know when CC ate complete french fries and FF drank whole of cold coffee without there notice.

Because of the immense noise around. There came a time where they decided to end their conversation.

But. By now they knew that they ate and drank each other so much so and it is impossible for them to end but had to and so came to a mutual conclusion.

And at the end. They leave it on time to decide whether their conversation will have any meaning to it or not.

But the conversation continued forever ❤️

Disclaimer

Just to bring it to your notice. All this time I was using the metaphors to describe the love story of an adorable couple.

Coffee shop = Life.

Cold Coffee = Boy.

French Fries = Girl.

Conversation = Love.

Noise from background = People surrounding them be it friends, relatives and so on.

No more silence in place = Frustrations and Restlessness between the two.

Ate & Drank without there notice = Understanding each other to such an extent without even noticing about the very fact of how much they know each other.

Noise around = Situations and Circumstances in front of them.

Meaning to it = Togetherness forever.

Aside

Chutney.

Well, it’s true. I know the topic of this article seems to be a little funny on its own! 😀 But, request you’ll to bear with me for this. Hope you will like it once your done reading it.

To be frank. I got this thought of writing something on “Chutney” when I was eating “Dosa” today morning. For a moment, I felt it to be so true.

It’s for sure. Every one of us will be having ups and downs rite. Happy and sad moments undoubtedly will be there.

But, on the contrary. I Just gave it a thought. How would it be. If I had a life which neither had any happiness nor sadness in it [In short: No emotions]. If I had a life where there were neither ups nor downs in it [How on earth would I even understand the true essence of life]. 

Having said all this. When I thought about having a “Dosa” without “Chutney”. I jumped into my imaginary world. And started imagining and started considering Breakfast, Dosa and Chutney to actually be metaphors.

Breakfast: Life

Dosa: Me

Chutney: Mixture of all things that happen to me during the course of my Life

It’s a complete cycle. Only when all these three are in place. Everything is just perfect. If one misses out. Rest others will have no meaning to it. 

In short. Life is complete only when you have got all the mixture of things that happen along side your day-to-day activities. So, Remember.

Only, if Chutney is there with Dosa. Meal will definitely be appetizing and delightful.
