Why Not?

So today is the time for “ Why Not” in special demand of my cutest reader and my colleague who actually honors all of my ridiculous ideas that I usually don’t post because I say it to myself “Why would people actually read this?”, and then I quite honestly justify that they wouldn’t, so I do not post and share it.

There are times in life when your mind is fully of shitty thoughts and ideas, basically the ones you simply do not want to think about. But why not? You have got to deal with your own mess you like it or not. Think of it and clear your head of it. I came across a very powerful line lately on the Reddit thread which says that – “Do not let people live in your head rent-free.” When you feel you are stuck or life becomes too much to handle, this is the best advise to deal with life. Think of it this way – Imagine that you are at the station, on the platform and unhelpful thoughts are the trains that pass by you. It is important for you to acknowledge that you do not necessarily need to get into every train. Simply take a look and let them pass. Same is the case with thoughts!

Why not follow your passion instead? Keep yourself consumed to keep bad thoughts astray. Do all that you want to do. You just have one life. One small life which may end any moment. So why not do all that you ever wanted to! It’s better to live life with no regrets and accept that you should give life one chance, give yourself a try. Life finds wonderful ways to send us messages if we are open to them. Why not be open to those and cherish each moment!

The journey never ends…

The Indian Railways network is the fourth longest in the world and covers an operating route length of more than 65,000kms.


A massive network of railway lines, probably the largest in Asia. There is nothing like seeing an engine thundering at you at triple digit speeds blanching out smoke. A honk from the driver then becomes the icing on the cake. Every child has a memory associated with trains. For me, it was always about summer vacations. Train rides and window seats being the best part. When I travel in a train standing near the door, I feel as if the winds tell me that my life is heading in the best direction.


Our lives are also like a railway track, long and unending, you know which stations of life passed by and you know where you are at present. But you can only anticipate for the future stations of life just as you do not know about the ending of the track. Life is mysterious!
