On rains and life..On a rainy life!

I woke up to a rainy morning today. I hate rainy mornings cause somehow in my world, mornings are supposed to be bright and sunny. Rains can be kept for the evenings so that we can sit on the terrace and have mugs of steaming coffee. (I think the Nescafe ads have spoiled me. I cant think of steaming coffees in anything but mugs these days. These mugs have become as important as the coffee itself. A case of the creation becoming more important than the creator huh?Β  Besides I think its more stylish. Coffee in a mug! Coffee in a glass or even in cup is not as cool and coffee in those disposable paper cups are plain loathsome) So, where was I? Damn! This is the problem with these extended brackets, you lose track of your original thought.

So, where was I? oh yes, the rains in the evening. Not only do they give us an excuse to have more coffee but they also set the perfect platform for us to snuggle closer to our man (or woman) under an umbrella and have coffee from the road side vendor. Yes, I know, I have been heavily inspired byΒ  Raj Kapoor and Nargis alaΒ  Pyaar hua Ikraar hua hia. What can I say, I am very filmi like this, which is why I adore the character played by Kirron Kher in Om Shanti Om. That melodramatic character is so me, as most of my friends will happily testify. So you see, rains don’t belong at mornings. Also, Aqua said ‘ Good morning Sunshine be with me all day’ and not ‘Good morning Raindrops be with me all day’. So you see, I ain’t the only one.

Anyways, why am I talking to you about the rains? This is not what I wanted to talk to you about, what I wanted was to talk about the movie I saw last night, ‘The Family Man’. A real cutesy movie starring Nicholas Cage. Now, the story ain’t much but its interesting. It maps out how our life can change differently based on one small step or decision of ours, much like the Butterfly Effect. (Not the movie, but the theory.)

Imagine, our life as we live it now is only like this cause we chose to take the bus instead of a taxi while returning home last night or because we chose to eat Chinese instead of Italian the other day or because we missed the first flight out of town last week. Isn’t it baffling and weird and doesn’t it make you think? Well it sure made me. It somehow seemed to have switched my imagination to the hyper mode cause now I anticipate any decision I made as a possible crossroad in life and how it might affect me. I even went a step ahead a imagined a different life for me, spanning from the one decision I made. Like I even thought twice about eating an apple instead of a full spread for breakfast today. Ok, maybe so much of thought is not necessary but I see of lot of us hardly giving a thought to our actions. We like to go with the flow without realising that this could possibly have an effect on our life. Aaah!! Did I just border on preaching now? Phew!! Forget I said that. Imagine you just thought it up yourself. πŸ™‚

Oh by the way, movies contemplating on life is also a good watch for a rainy evening. So is a good romance.

PS: Do you think me writing this blog could have a major effect on my later life?

  1. I think so.. πŸ˜‰
    “Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.”
    Proverbs 3:13

  2. movies … for a rainy evening So are, books, Flakes chocolate, and sex. πŸ™‚

  3. Everytime i feel like cursing morning rains i think of the school children who get a rainy day off frm school and feel happy for them πŸ™‚

    Its really strange tht we rarely stop to look bak and see how the choices we made have made our life so different from what it could have been and we continue to live wid our choice of either Nescafe or Benson& Hedges or British Airways without knowing what other would have been like πŸ˜‰

    As a parting shot a few lines from the master himself….

    na tha kuchch to KHuda tha, kuchch na hota to KHuda hota
    duboya mujhko hone ne, na hota maiN to kya hota

    huee muddat ke ‘GHalib’ mar gaya par yaad aata hai
    wo har ek baat pe kehana, ke yooN hota to kya hota

  4. Maybe you’ll meet the dreams of your man. And then the wet rains won’t be that much of a problem. Or perhaps.. umm.. maybe i’ll just go cause a storm by fluttering my wings.

    Imagine if each time you swung your hair over your shoulder, you created a typhoon. Scary, no? πŸ˜›

  5. From the movie Fight Club πŸ˜›
    “You have to know the answer to this question! If you died right now, how would you feel about your life?”

    I wonder if youve seen it..
    ANyway from rains to coffee to mugs to cups to the creator to rains again to movie which finally brings us to the real you. Small decisions…yeah.they matter a lot. But I dont think about life that much. I dont think about what governs my life. What will happen to it if I do this I do that…crap for me! Life is way to simple for us to think about it a LOT and make it look complicated!
