Road of Life

This Sunday morning, I decided to take my car for a spin. It was supposed to be a calm ride as there was a light drizzle with soft music soothing relaxing my mind, but within me were some thoughts that were somewhat perplexing. 

Well, for now, let us take it this way! Taking the car out from my garage can be compared to a child’s first walk, getting ready to face the battle of life. I soon reached the highway and felt like participating in a rat’s race. Every vehicle that I saw going in the same direction, depicted a problem in one’s life. I waited for the right time and then overtook the vehicle congratulating my mind for a small similar victory of life. I personally felt that the size of the vehicle determines the problem that we come across. A truck or bus is a big hurdle in our way whereas an auto or rickshaw may be a small obstacle that we may meet. And this cycle continues to happen in a similar fashion. Sometimes there are vehicles coming towards us from the opposite lane.

Sometimes there are vehicles coming towards us from the opposite lane and we feel blessed to move forward in our direction as we believe there is a clear road out there waiting for us, which may not be the same in the opposite lane which has a huge traffic jam. At times, the reverse may happen and we blame God for all our miseries and difficulties that we face in life. Surprising, but true!

This is how my journey came to an end and I somehow understood another Shade of life!


When I am not busy scribbling and sketching away on little pieces on paper, I am found cozying on my recliner enjoying movies and cartoons. A dreamer and an artist, I am in love with all things beautiful. Prefer Bukowski and Gulzar over Shakespeare and Tagore. And nights over daytime. Anti-social and friendly in the same breath. Desperately trying to bring being nice in vogue. This blog is an itinerary of a girl amidst the cacophony of metropolitan life facing the struggles & unexpected surprises that life offers.
