A Humble Start

The best part of a project is the taste of victory at its completion. Though not everyone taste it, the thoughts of appraisal when finishing the project brings out the hidden blushes. At some point in everyone's life, this is experienced.

One Such Experience:

A year ago, a craze for films hit me. Tarantino, Scorcece, Christopher Nolan, David Fincher, Cameroon and Woody Allen were my superheroes. I started watching every films they made, which encouraged me to start a script project of my own. It did take time and before I knew the complete script, around 15,000 words sat on my word document. I started picturing various actors performing the scenes and a thought of great appraisal from critics hit my head. I sent the completed script to various agencies and received a dull response.

That was huge blow. But one thing I gained from it is #Experience. This is a fruit not every one wish to eat after a failure, but I took a bite from it and continued.

Today I'm at a stage which gives me a taste of what happiness feels like. I write for a living and this makes me content than I've ever been. A lesson I learned from the previous failure is that, jumping from ground and touching the torch of the liberty statue is for superman alone, not for the common people. Aiming high is not a problem, but reaching there is to done through either the stairs or a working elevator. I prefer the stairs.

That's My Spot

Every now and then, a spot is to be fixed to maintain composure in your life. Well, mine is fixed, the left end will always be my spot. Just not at the office though (The air conditioning doesn't supply the chill air there.) So, on a pursuit to find what I need, I have stepped into the real world and to be honest, so far it's rocking.

Wish others would say the same but calling my friends during lunch just reminded me that not everyone enjoy the way I do. Night shifts and day naps are all they get from this cranky world. Something tells me that it's not the world that's cranky but their boss.(My boss is great. He actually wants us to leave early and experience the outer world.)

So coming back to my spot again. The reason why I wanted to write this is to remind my fellow mates that there is always a job that deserves you and not the way around.

Understanding your potential isn't that hard a task. It simply just requires a minute of talk with your heart. Speak to it, open up your mind and walk towards it. As time goes, standing idle would just be impossible, you would want to run instead. That's how much you'll love it.

(This proverb has nothing to do with what I wrote, just wanted to end with it.)

Hiding Beneath My Own Shadow

It's 2 in the afternoon and I am starved. I walk outside my room to find a decent enough hotel two blocks away from where I live. A boiled egg and khushka, that would suffice me. On my way return, I noticed two kids riding bicycles beside me and all I could think of was, 'Wish I was them'.

With no regrets or any kind of issues running through their mind, the delight in their eyes alone proved that the biggest mistake I ever committed was growing up. Not even a month left and I will be 22.... or 23(I'm bad with numbers). Oh God! I'm growing up too fast.

Well, let anything happen, I just feel good about two things. A job I love and a family who loves me more. A lot is yet to be achieved and a lot more to fight in the path of it. I just wish that I come outside tearing the barrier I have been into, walking away from my own shadow of regrets and mistakes.

It's not far though, I could see a hint of rays shining, waiting for me to accept it.
