Blurring Lines....

(At my philosophical best)

Blurring lines....
....between the rich and the poor
….between the far and near
….between bravery and fear

Blurring lines….
....between day and night
....between wrong and right
….between tiffs and fights

Blurring lines....
....between the ugly and cute
....between funny and rude
....between cool and crude

Blurring lines....
....between a relationship and a date
....between love and hate
….between ill luck and fate

Blurring lines....
….between icing and cream
….between stars and light beams
....between reality and dreams…….


Yes, truly random thoughts…observations…and a result of an acute stomach infection!!!

Blurring lines....
....between the rich and the poor

Drove past a hindi medium school yesterday...and nothing about the kids there said they came from less privileged families....they were well dressed, no oiled braids, no untidy shoes, body language as cool as anyone elses…..
My maid now has a maid at home, has a son who works for an MNC, spends that Rs 25 on a caller tune I’m stingy to spend on…

Blurring lines....
....between day and night
I feel more alive when the sun goes down...the city wakes up…you sleep through the day and make plans to party through the night….

Blurring lines....
….between the far and near
Get from Delhi to Bombay in the same time it takes to drive through the traffic choked route from office to home…

Blurring lines....
....between funny and rude
When do things stop being funny? When do you know when someone has pushed the joke a bit too far? When do you know when you’re on the verge of being rude?

Blurring lines....
....between a relationship and a date
How many relationships end up just being a date? How many relationships are treated like mere dates?


Blurring lines....
….between stars and light beams
Walk into one of the grandeur wedding places…the fairy lights glistening from the trees….who looks up to the stars for their beauty anymore?

Blurring lines....
....between the ugly and cute
Definitions change…dark was not cute when you were little, fair is not cute when you grow up….short was not cute when you were a teenager, short is more approachable now…those who were ugly as kids are suddenly centerstage at parties….those who were cute in yearbooks suddenly look haggard old wannabes

Blurring lines…..As a matter of perspective….as how you want to see it……….

(No I’m not low! I’m just philosophical! I’m bored. I'm jobless. I’m hoping it’s not jaundice!)

I agreed with every single one, without the explanations even; except this one.

"….between bravery and fear"


How does that work?


P.S.:- Isn't perspective all we have to define _reality?

unforgiven said...

Oh, get well soon and all! :)

arpz said...

Dang Baby said...

Dang suffer jaundice too...

Blurring lines between
...between brave and stupid
...between fate and a cupid
...between hazy and lucid

...between brave and stupid
Do you ever feel that being brave at times is just being stupid...

...between fate and a cupid
Am I the only one who thinks fate and cupid's dont work together. Where you are fated "may" not be what the Cupid's aiming at...

...between hazy and lucid
Am i the only one who thinks my dreams are hazy but the path i take there is so lucid...

Ps: Sorry big blog comment :-(

JollyRoger said...

Wow!!! Thats a very impressive post, wonder if you are mentally sick? ; )

Do get well soon.

Adarsh said...

kabhi kabhi philosophical hona is a good thing. thought process renew ho jaata hai.

the points raised..... I agree to most of them.
rich and poor.. definitely
far and near... all depends on money.
ugly and cute... depends on your own definition of them
relationship and date.. no experience whatsoever.

"maid has a maid" ... too much irony !!!
and finally...
GET WELL SOON !!!!! :)

Prasoon said...

this post was nice.

is there a fine blurring line between craziness n madness too? ;-) I think I am on the verge of one such line :-P

Cuckoo said...

Wow! You surprised me with that one.. pretty good thoughts... but yes, these decisions you make put you on one side of the line or the other...

Watch 'Race' and you would wonder where the line blurs between slapstick comedy and absurd supposedly se#ual innuendos!

Get well soon,gal!!
