Arbit fundas of my life

It has been quite sometime since I have written on my favourite topic, Life et al. Someone (some great person) rightly said that Life is what happens while you plan other things. Life is an equation with too many variables to be taken care of. Things never go the way they were planned to and little do we know what's in store for us. My fundas of life are pretty vague and uncorrelated to what others think nevertheless I'll put some of them for public scrutiny.

1. Anything greater than zero is positive.

he he!Obvious na? Mathematically true but what I mean here is that whatever you get just put it in your bag because it is atleast 'something'. There are people who are dying for what you own. It may be materialistic things like your marks in exam, bank balance, clothes, sexy body etc. or something as basic as clean air, water or freedom. There are people who can't walk or do things on their own, it feels great whenever I realize that I can use my limbs to live gracefully. I just want to have whatever comes in my way.

2. Its hard to pretend to love someone when you really don't. But its harder to pretend you don't love someone when you really do!

I got this as an sms nevertheless I always felt so. Replace the word love with crush to make it more realistic. I feel it very very difficult to hide my feelings whether likes or dislikes. Eyes say everything. I just can't tell a lie looking directly into someone's eyes. However it is rather tough to strike a balance between public relations and my truest feelings.

3. Energy comes with will.

I can give my best only when my heart and mind are in consensus. In case of conflict, I want to go with mind but always end up with decisions taken from heart, guided by emotions. It's difficult to motivate oneself when one is not enthusiastic enough, afterall one can deceive anyone else but not oneself.

4. Freedom

What one should seek forever..No shackles, no barriers... Utopia!

5. If two distinct things are equally good and bad (if at all measurable!), then bad thing will overrule good one.

Pessimistic, not really!! Do we ever care if something good happen in our lives? We keep finding instances of Murphy's law in our lives but we never see the good things happening to us. The queue in which one stand moves slowest sometimes, but it does move faster also at various occasions. Happiness is ephemeral.

6. God is non-existent.

If it is there, what is it doing?If something goes haywire, some calamity strikes or everything goes kaput then it is considered to be God's wrath and when something fortuitous event occurs, God takes all the credit!! Good people die disgracefully without any fault on their part, innocent people are killed, rich exploits poor and weak, corrupt people flourish, women are raped and despite of all that if one thinks God is taking care of this world, I can't help it.

7. The sum total of all positive and negative virtues is not zero.

Optimistic is one who thinks there are more +ve than -ve and pessimistic thinks other way round. I keep vacillating. My other definition of optimist is one who considers zero to be positive and pessimist considers negative.

8. After infinity, minus infinity comes.

Some arbit mathematics..

9. If a path is changed before reaching destination you'll never reach the same destination. However, priorities change as life moves on.

Consider a sphere(or any solid) in your hand and any two points as starting point(source) and ending point(destination). Start from source and traverse in any direction to reach the destination and change the direction(or path) somewhere before reaching the destination. You'll never reach the same destination. Even if the path is changed more than once, the probability to reach same destination is theoretically zero. So if you wanna stick to something make sure you are there till the end. More advisable is to be flexible.

That is enough I guess. These were some of my arbit fundas which delineates my staccato lifestyle. Absurdity and Ingenuity are relative. :)

PS- The Bird Flu Scare has been overhyped, totally blown out of proportion. It is restricted to a very small area near Maharashtra-Gujarat border. Those who have stopped eating chicken may resume it asap.

awesome list :D

1. Anything greater than zero is positive.

btw infact even zero s a nice no...it shows dat the countin ll begin now..dat is , good things will begin now..!

2. Its hard to pretend to love someone when you really don't. But its harder to pretend you don't love someone when you really do! the second part s so true...*shikha starts cryin*

3. Energy comes with will.
n will comes wen ur heart s happy n satisfied...go by wt ur heart says and trust me u ll always be full of life...heart will always choose the most dumb n most impractical way but at the end , it ll be the only right way..

4. Freedom...well , we call ourselves free ...but are we actually free??we dont hav freedom of opportunities in studies , job opportunities , freedom to be wid the guy u want to be , freedom to hang out wid ppl u want to and at tiem u want to and at place u want to , we cant even dream without imposin restrictions on ourselves...gawd!and wat s worse one powerful country attacks another and teh world jus sits and watch the plight of innocent ppl...how can we be free in such a world>?

5. If two distinct things are equally good and bad (if at all measurable!), then bad thing will overrule good one.
i wont agree with this one...do u know despite all the evils in this world , why are we still alive ??cuz of all those small small good things in life which keep our hope alive dat yeah one day it will all be fine...


6. God is non-existent.
one tight slap! its only cuz of that God that you got an opportunity to experience wat most ppl die for...IIM A GD/PI...u know no matter what the result will be , u r still one of dose elite groups...and be thankful to God..!!i think d day u will realise the importance of God in ur life , u ll realise how one word "sai" can take away all ur worries , dat no booze or fag can even help..

7. The sum total of all positive and negative virtues is not zero.okay...u hav a poor maths..!!..u just said if two distinct good n bad things are equal den bad thing will overrule it...dat means if we hav one positive n another negative , negative will overrule positiv en d sum will be negative!!!!

8. After infinity, minus infinity comes. yeah after one slap , second slap comes

9. If a path is changed before reaching destination you'll never reach the same destination. However, priorities change as life moves on. priorities never change..its situations in life dat changes...and i believe no matter wta path u take...ur ultimate destination will always be the one u always dreamt of...

PS- The Bird Flu Scare has been overhyped, totally blown out of proportion. It is restricted to a very small area near Maharashtra-Gujarat border. Those who have stopped eating chicken may resume it asap. stupid ladke...those eggs n chicke u eat r from those areas only...so obviousily u hav a chance to catch dat...u eat if u wanna risk ur life ....dont put other ppl in danger...

@sriram- thanks :)!!
@rahul-haha, i wanted to prove something, so used the maths way..
@prasoon- thanks fr appreciation!
@shikha- listen useless, point no. 5 is about 'things' or 'events' and point no. 7 is about'virtues' or 'qualities', and they r poles apart.. ok God may exist, i've never ruled out this possibility totally, but the way things r going around, god is seemingly non-existent..I really hope someday I'll realize but till then.. and yeah I ate chicken in Delhi, but not here in G'nagar hehe!

1. Anything greater than zero is positive.

i myself strongly believe this and also try to follow aa much i can.

2. Its hard to pretend to love someone when you really don't. But its harder to pretend you don't love someone when you really do!

you need to learn this yaar...i myself trying hard..


3. Energy comes with will.
well energy is always there but its usability comes with will..
i guess u were tryin to convey the same...


4. Freedom...
even i dream of that..
almost every day n every night..


5. If two distinct things are equally good and bad (if at all measurable!), then bad thing will overrule good one.
-i apreciate your understanding on this .. u r a learned person ..

6. God is non-existent.
truely said..
don't bother if people don't agree to you ..i am with you on this point..

don't u change ur opinion with fear.... but if it ever changed through logic(chances are less) ..do try to convience me too..


7. The sum total of all positive and negative virtues is not zero.

nice way of interpretting optimistic and pessimistic approch towards life.. i am impressed

8. After infinity, minus infinity comes.
don't u think this means difference beteween infinity and minus infinity is little and that will be wrong ...
have a second thought on this

i think u wanted to tell that excees of good things are also bad ..do reply on this ....

9. If a path is changed before reaching destination you'll never reach the same destination.
i think that is obvious as every thing is realtive in human life..

amod dear
great fundas of life

but i wanna say that I don't know what is GOD doing right now if he exits but I truely believe that he exits
in the form of Power I have,
in the confidance that there is smb to look after u,
in the form of fear which stops me to do wrong things,
in the form of friend who knows every secret of urs and is always thr to listen to ur problems and never got irritate,
in the form of faith which helps u ignore the darker side of life

and one imp thing he is very friendly and always waanna have new friends so give Him a chance to be ur friend.
U will definately relish his friendship

He will always be thr to help u in ur difficult moments but never expect u in His
