Driverless Taxi 

“Where would you like to go?”,
the car questioned him. 

As he fed in the location, he remembered them saying,
“Ride hard and Stop conforming”

While they all took paths to different destinations..
He sat here, in a driverless car, taking him to his 10th job interview
Same city,same nation.. 

Driverless cars! Pfft!!
If only 
they knew,
how he and his mate, used to design them,
sitting on the back benches
in school..

 They were the scientists of tomorrow,
But alas! A jobless man today.. 

25 year’s!!

He checked the day..25 years since he left school..
When did time go so soon..

A happy kid he was,
who lived in the future.
A hard pill to swallow,
that the future was here,
but the kid was no where near.. 

“Act your age”, they said
“find a job, marry,settle down”
“forget your childish dreams”
“Travel blogger! Whoever heard of such a thing..”
Heartbroken he conformed
and forgot, 

until today

 He panicked and suddenly felt alone,
hadn’t he agreed to,
do whatever the society had asked him to, 

“Then why do I not feel happy nor free?”
“Guilty? have i wronged the kid inside me?”

“You have arrived at your destination”
the car suddenly spoke.. 

looking out, at the towering glass-paned building,
dwarfing the world around 

He finally questioned himself
“Have I?”

Organ Donation

Let me start of with a story, be patient and read

*          There was a factory, not long ago, which used to make superb cuckoo-clocks. A small, but dedicated group of workers, trained to do the same thing each day on the assembly line, worked there for almost 20 years!
The boss was erratic but hard working. The money flow was decent and continuous.
But then one day, the money stopped.
The boss had made some glaring mistakes in his dealings, putting the company and the livelihood of his workers in danger!
So, he resigned and the company went under, since it was in a huge debt!

But what about the workers?

No debt in the world could take away, what they had learnt and were really good at. Just coz the company wasnt there, or the boss, didn’t mean they should stop surviving.

Guess, new investors and a stable boss could give rise to another successful company.. dont you think so?                                             *

By now you would realize the point, i am trying to make here.

You are not your body. At best, you are Nature’s IKEA project.

It is a gift, which you have received, after permutations and combinations of millions and billions of years. Even a slight, 0.1% deviation somewhere and, you would not have been alive to read this, in the form you are in present.
So to say you are “lucky” to be alive and healthy, is an understatement.
It is an achievement of nature.

But, some are not.

Some due to their own, or by someone else’s action, or due to nature’s mistake, end up in a situation no one would, voluntarily, want to be in.
But don’t such people also have the right to live. To lead a life, with ‘a chance’ for equal opportunities, like we have been blessed with? or just a second shot to survive?

With the progress in scientific and medical fields this has been made possible. (First try, at Head transplant is going to take place in 2017, by Dr. Sergio Canavero.A milestone in human history, if successful)

Your Donation of organs can lead to saving/changing, atleast 3 lives minimum.. Think about it!

Just like you, even your organs have the right to live, and do the work they have been so highly trained at. Do not waste your gifts!

and don’t worry, you will not feel any pain after; only happiness  before.

would like to end this, with a passage-

“The wise understand, that everything they own, is on temporary loan and the possession merely an illusion.
For no one can take earthly possession, with him or her when they die. Surely, they may possess a possession for a little while, but sooner or later ‘it will come to pass’, that everything will be left behind….the act of giving a material possession is eternal.  For no matter what happens to that given object, ‘the act’, has been placed within eternity. So in truth only that which you give,is what you keep forever.”

Elijah (Prophet,9th century BC)

Sailing Dreams

This monotony of life has got to me;
standing here like an old navy..
I am searching for that precious land alluding me…

DREAMs washed away in this storming ocean,
all that i can do is wait here and watch-
as birds fly,
up in the sleeping sky..

The Celestial wheel is guiding my ship,
across an unknown path-to an unknown world;

a world where dreams have wings&
are open to fly…
where peoples heart aint bound by shackles of lie;
and such is a place where a sailor loves to-
live & die…(20/1/2010)
