The Conflict Inside My Mind

Just before ripping this page of my diary, I thought of filling it up with some words that could probably signify the internal turmoil inside me. At times, when you feel suffocated of you misfortunes and some misdeeds, which actually shouldn’t be classified as such; but owing to the circumstances, at point where others consider you lucky, though you are not, you have this feeling which I go through at this point of time.

The ambiguity in the definition of being happy and satisfied has probably made this world a lot difficult to live in. Owing to the feeling of jealousness, people do make nasty remarks, and trust me, it hurts. Just because you long to be better and them, and you do, doesn’t make it fair enough reason to be offended. The inheritance of a good family blood doesn’t make a criterion necessary enough to be successful. If you remain fool enough and believe that your family is of superior quality, then you are mistaken my friend.

But of course there is a difference being born talented and talent being acquired. No matter how hard you ought to try, you would always remain a step behind the ones born talented. Your upbringing decides the way, you present yourself today. People say, you can decide what you want to be, but since you cannot change the way you were brought up, you can’t actually present yourself the way people expects. This is really getting frustrating.

The social strata you live in and the strata you belong, if they conflict each other, trust me, you live in a turmoil which vacuums everything out of you. The best thing you can probably do at this point of time is fake yourself. Pretend yourself, to the contentment of yourself and others. Life seems lot more easier, but the moment you realize that fact that what you are doing is a lie. You feel sunken. You feel like trapped between two rocks and water filling up, making you suffocated, you try hard to get out, but the slippery surface don’t allow you to escape. It bruises you, suffocates you and gives you a painful death.

The dictionary is so full of different words; at least enough to partially explain what is inside your mind. I just wrote down whatever came to my mind. And this is probably the best experiment to perform to feel better. Not really sure, what sense did I make, but sure enough I feel light. I had to express it out all, and I did. Probably, this was the least I could do. Just waiting for the sunlight to enter my room, and I will wait for a life that would end my gloom.      


  1. Great thought driven post. Life moves on, we just need to be well equiped to catch up with it

  2. I was confused by reading this. You sound anguished, but I am not sure which side you are rooting for. If that is what you are doing - choosing sides, I mean.
    But if it is still an unresolved conflict, looks like you have made your point!

    1. The conflict, its a turmoil, shall take some time resolve. Thanks for the reviews :)

Wish I could 'FLIRT'

I was in class VII, when I first came across the word ‘flirting’. (This apparently proves my weakness in vocabulary). Anyways, it was my friend Jyotirmoy who was talking about him flirting with a girl. As usual, an innocent me, asked, “ এই flirting মানে কি? ” Which apparently meant, ‘What does flirting mean? What an apt description he gave, he said, it is an act of conveying someone that you love him/her verbally, though you hold no feelings for him/her by heart. Mind it, class VII we were, and we were already discussing how to fake love. That was good old 7 years back, in a phase of time, where at least love was not merely a matter of one night stand. Over the time, Jyotirmoy did excel in the art of flirting on screen, no wonder, he is yet to score a girl, but he has surely excelled. This is an art, an art probably all of the cool dude modern guys surely have good hands on. But what I am more concerned about is actually described in the last part of the last line of th

Life on the Wheels: Mr Ram Kumar

The title might suggest that the post is about some adventurous traveler, who roams the world in a four wheeler exploring thousands of kilometers. Indeed, he travels thousands of kilometers, probably 36000 km a month, yet he is not adventurous traveler, and probably we would never imagine our lives to be like his. Life on the Wheels Meet Mr. Ram Kumar , the coach attendant of the Dibrugarh Rajdhani Express . Mr. Kumar, with just 4 holidays a month, travels all the way from New Delhi to Dibrugarh via Guwahati serving passengers and back. Again the same day he leaves for Jammu with another fleet of passengers and the cycle goes on. Four holidays is just like nothing, a resident of Bihar, it takes him 2 days to reach home from Delhi and unlike the so called posh Rajdhani where he serves; he boards a general sleeper class compartment to get back. Yet, he wears a badge saying ‘Serving with a smile’ and severs to every new face which he meets in his journey without any compla

Love? Arranged? Naa, Semi-Arranged!!

After fighting the battles of Education and Job, most of the youths today ultimately go through a war in their homes regarding their take on Love Marriage or Arranged one. Though exceptions are always there, but generally our life is filled with various battles, the battle for Chocolate , the battle for Excellence in Studies , the Battle for Job and ultimately  the battle for marriage . Unlike the previous generations, where parents used to commit their close friends that 'our dosti will be converted to ristedari', parents these days are way cooler and acts according to the wish of their sons and daughters, though always in some corner of their mind they always long for Arranged Marriage, which seems quite obvious. But the real problem is with us. What are we suppose to choose? The most interesting fact of the present romancing generation is that, almost most of us are associated in multiple relationships. The magazine concept of Playboy, is quite a reality now with
