The Only Playlist

The Only Playlist

Feeling indifferent to the world and the society, he had lost his interest in everything. His heart was devoid of the emotions that make a human being lively. His eyes had long lost the shine. His infectious energy had died and he had restricted himself against even his own feelings.

Sitting on the window seat of the bus, he pulled out his phone from the bag. The moment he switched on the internet on his phone, it was bombarded with notifications from different apps. He had many friends on the social networks but in reality, he had no one to comfort him. He just ignored all the notifications and opened the music app. There was only one playlist in the playlist section of the music app named “Her Favorite”. He played it and pushed the earphones into his ears effectively blocking the noise of the outside world as he looked outside the window of the moving bus.

“Kitni baatein yaad aati hai….Tasveerein si ban jati hai…Mai kaise inhe bhoolon…Dil ko kya samjhaun…”

His lips started moving automatically with the song playing and myriad thoughts invaded his mind. The thoughts which he wanted to forget.

The beautiful happy memories of the past now made his heart sank with grief.

Ummm….

Ummm….

Has anyone of you ever felt like you have so much to express and write but the moment you try to pen it down, the words seem to vanish right there. You don’t find right words to express your feelings and with time, it grows on you. With time, you seem to be losing the ability to pen down your feelings. You seem to be losing the ability to play with words. 

Maybe it has to do something with the life happenings of a person or maybe not. 

And now let’s talk about life. Is it only me or some of you also who make plans for future in their mind? 

Like plotting the way of your life about how it will unfold in future and that seems to raise your hope. You start feeling good and happy but then as the life moves ahead, all your plans which you made in mind shatter. Nothing seems to be happening your way and suddenly, you feel that nothing’s ever gonna go your way. It hurts and it hurts more when you see other’s plan for their future going just as they thought. You’re like “What wrong did i do?”. 

You start losing hope. 

What irks you more is when someone comes and say “Everything will be fine in future”. 

You’re like “Hell, no. Nothing good is happening right now. Nothing’s going in my favour. So, how the hell everything is gonna be fine?”. 

You start to fear planning. It all becomes a chaos and you seem to stuck in it. The more you fight, the more hectic it becomes. 

And then a moment comes when you realise that life is going to work its own way. Your plans don’t hold any importance. The energy seems to be depleted. 

And you let the life take you wherever it wants you to. 

P.S – Didn’t know what to put as a title. Maybe you will find it a negative piece of writing. Don’t know. 

I Want You 

I Want You 

As he held her right hand and pulled her towards him with a force, she seemed visibly shocked. 

“What are you doing?” she asked as their eyes met

He didn’t say anything as his hands traced their way to her curvy back. She could feel his hand’s warmth through her top’s fabric. No words escaped their lips as their breath started raising. His hands now found their way underneath her top to her smooth skin. The moment that touch established, gossebumps covered her body and she took a deep breath.

“I just want to show you that how badly I want you.” he said softly into her right ear and bit her earlobe 

The moments afterwards, unadulterated love was on show. 

Love – The Real Meaning 

Love – The Real Meaning 

So, what really love is amid all the fake things things happening in the world? 

People these days have made mockery of love. Saying “I love you” has become a normal thing. Most of the times love is used as a thing to get laid and that’s it. 

Saying “I love you” to someone doesn’t mean that I like you or I owe you. 

What it really means is that “A part of me now belongs to you and till death will always belong to you. You and only have the complete control over it. I will be with you through thick and thin of life.”

Love isn’t about pushing yourself to be in a relationship. Love isn’t about showing off to world that you have got a gf or bf. 

When you are in love, you should feel at peace when your partner is with you. 

Fall in love but cautiously.

Not everyone who says “I love you” means it. 

Look beyond their words to know the real meaning.

Musing Of A Guy

Musing Of A Guy

As my gaze gets locked to the black sky, the thought of love being absent from my life sprung up. I can’t digest the fact even after all these months that I have lost the one I loved and that I can’t have her in my life. My eyes get filled with tears everytime this thought comes into my mind but I can’t do anything other than to ignore these thoughts because I can’t fight with my destiny and so, I just close my eyes to let the tears get absorbed back. The absence of love from my life has made a hollow person because I deem it as the absolute necessity to have a happy life. The feelings for her haven’t died and probably never will but I have no option other than to bury them alive. It pains me a lot at night because nights make me feel her absence and I can’t do anything to gain her presence back. So, I just plug in the earphones and listen to romantic tracks which makes my heart heavier and it cries from inside due to all the memories that still seem afresh. 

Sometimes, all I want is to run upto her and crash into her arms to cry, to let my feelings escape, to tell her how I can never be complete but I know I can’t.

All I can afford to do is to put a lid on my feelings and just accept the pain that comes with it. 

Nationalism Vs Anti Nationalism

Nationalism Vs Anti Nationalism

Disclaimer – These are purely my thoughts and I strongly believe on them. Yours may differ and again, I may or may not agree with your views. So, surge ahead with caution.

Exactly, one year ago.

Jawaharlal National University or JNU which is in Delhi witnessed something new. Some slogans were raised which were about Kashmir’s independence and Afzal Guru’s conviction. Slogans like “Bharat tere tukde honge”, “Tum jitney afzal maroge, har ghar se afzal niklega” and likewise were raised.

Kanhaiya Kumar and Umar Khalid were booked under anti national charges among another one. They are out on bail.

I mentioned about these two only because they hogged limelight the most.

Let me clear out the matter for those unaware of these two things.

First, Jammu and Kashmir was merged into India but with some special acts which granted some extra powers to the state. The ruler of Jammu and Kashmir accepted the accession to India. So, no one should even think of freedom from India but even then, the protest for so called freedom from India has kept on going since 1947. Such freedom protests aren’t held in any part of Jammu or its districts but only in Kashmir. Jammu is about 300 km away from Kashmir by road. So, why isn’t anyone from Jammu vouching for freedom from India? Why is it that only people from Kashmir want freedom?

Second, Afzal guru was convicted for 2001 Parliament attack and thus, was given death sentence by the court after years of trials. He was executed by hanging. So, one thing is clear that he is a terrorist in all ways possible. There’s nothing to debate on it.

The same thing has happened this year also, although some slogans were different and place was changed. The place now was Ramjas College that’s in Delhi. This time, the slogans were like “Kashmir maange azadi”, “Bastar maange azadi”.

The basic premise of why this happened is because Umar Khalid, yes the same Umar Khalid that was in the JNU row last year, was invited for a speech. SERIOUSLY.

Bastar is a naxalite Maoist area while Kashmir is a terrorism prone area.

Because of these slogans, clash took place between ABVP and AISI where both are now accusing each other of provoking violence.

There are videos on YouTube about the clashes although I don’t vouch for their authenticity or align with them.

I AM AGAINST ANY TYPE OF VIOLENCE AND CONDEMN IT.

Violence shouldn’t happen at any cost.

In between all this, a girl out of the blue named “Gurmehar Kaur” came forward with a video against the violence that happened and mostly accusing ABVP. She is the daughter of a Kargil martyr. One of the placards that she held in the video had written on it “Pakistan didn’t kill my dad. War did”.

Now, the thing is that India hasn’t ever initiated a war in its history and it’s known to all. So, even though the war did kill her dad, it was the Pakistan which initiated the war and therefore, Pakistan is the sole reason for her dad’s death.

In a way, she is questioning her father’s martyrdom and all those who died for the country in Kargil war because according to her, the war’s the reason.

Gurmehar Kaur is also supporting the protests by AISI. It’s the same AISI which agitated over the cancellation of seminar by Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid.

Virender Sehwag took a dig at her these words and Randeep Hooda supported him but they were attacked on twitter for this.

Also, Gurmehar Kaur stated that she got threats of rape from ABVP.

I AM ONCE AGAIN AGAINST THIS. THOSE WHO THREATENED HER WITH RAPE AREN’T NATIONALISTS.

Points to be noted from the above happenings are –

  • IT TAKES TWO TO MAKE A ROW.

Had Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid not been invited for a speech in seminar, no protests would have happened at all and everything would have gone peacefully.

  • FREEDOM OF SPEECH DOESN’T GIVE YOU THE AUTHORITY TO SPEAK AGAINST YOUR MOTHERLAND.

There’s a line between Freedom of Speech and Speaking against the country. You breach that line and you will be condemned. At no cost, raising slogans in favour of a terrorist or for a state’s independence from the country come under freedom of speech.

  • EVERYONE HAS GOT FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND NOT JUST A PARTICULAR GENDER, CASTE OR SECTION OF SOCIETY.

If Gurmehar Kaur using freedom of speech kept her views, Virender Sehwag and Randeep Hooda too, are free to keep their views. If they get opposed for their views, then even Gurmehar’s views can be opposed.

Most of the media channels have shifted their focus to only the rape threats and the violent clash. The main topic has taken a back seat.

Why do students raise such slogans at the first place?

Why is “Freedom of Speech” misused?

If you term raising Kashmir’s independence’s slogans or any anti – national slogan as freedom of speech, then SORRY. I STRONGLY DISAGREE WITH YOU.

The Keyboard Warrior 

So, what really is a Keyboard Warrior? 

It’s a person who makes abusive or angry content on Internet while hiding the real identity. 

So, you can call me a keyboard warrior but not in real sense because I do vent out my anger and frustration against various things on Facebook but don’t hide my identity.  

So, if anyone wants to connect with me over Facebook to get an idea of what I post,
