Choices...



Its just another choice. Tandoori or Barbeque Paneer? Pepsi or Sprite? Red or Purple? Life or death.

Discontent is easy to deal with. Just like I read somewhere, “It is so easy to live, complacent of it all.” So true. I’ve gone through so many paradigms of the remorseless human spirit, and I question why? As far as I’ve heard, there is no special club for fighters and strugglers up there in heaven. So why do we take all the trouble..?

I’m not trying to be stylishly cynical. I’m not questioning for just the eyeballs. This really makes me think. We’re born. We eat. We breathe. We make people’s lives shit. We make our parents lives shit for our friends. We make our friends lives shit for our lovers. We make our lovers lives shit for other lovers. And then we make our own lives shit. Guess it’s a pretty simple life.

Monotonous, some may say. Quite boring. Too standard. We want to be stand out. We want to be unique. But what happens when everyone wants to do so? Be different in different ways. And so we all end up being the same. Hardship shows man at his strongest. Bullshit. Basic intuition says take the easy way out. So what makes us take the moral high ground?

Do we really know why we do the things we do? Shooting down innocents in a cold blooded manner….what is the motive behind this douchbag?? Dying accidently on purpose…Sad.. The games we play to cheat death. That sudden rush of adrenaline we get when we realize that we narrowly escaped our non-existence. We can take life so lightly.

Well, suicide is a different matter altogether. Some call it cowardice. True. But what about someone who has actually no reason to live. He is hated by his family. He is broke. People are looking for him because he owes them money. His wife left him. His house got seized by the bank. And now his life is completely screwed. Where does he stand now? Life? Death? Somewhere in between? Whats right here? Whats easy?

Think about it…

Absolutely, maybe that is why they say that the simplest theory to the toughest questions is often the best and true.

For that person, I think it is a new beginning, in a better way. To live again.

Life sure is a bitch...

@ Blasphemous Aesthete:
Yes...absolutely true..
We do tend to over-complicate things at times....

Pavitra .... said...

@ Prateek Sur:
Agreed. Suicide is never the way out..
I do remember the line from the movie...and I loved it!
Cheers!

Pavitra .... said...

@ A.K:
Yes it is. Cant do anything about it, can we? :)

nikita said...

Suicide is cowardice in a way and it actually needs real guts too...

he should find out new reasons to live....

Pavitra .... said...

@ nikita:
Suicide requires real guts....
And I too think he should find new ways to be happy...

R said...

Your last paragraph reminds me about this books by Paulo C in which this girl has a nice happy life so she decides to end it while she's content with everything. :)

Pavitra .... said...

@ R:
I think I read that book too....Was it witch of Portobello..?? :)

Haddock said...

Agree with Prateek.
Suicide is not the answer.
Just leave everything and go.
You only have one life, and you end it and thats the end of it. No second chance.
By the way I will neither take Sprite or Coke. It is nothing but aspirated water with sugar.

most of the times i've come to realize all the issues are just in your mind...on other few rare occassions i have to agree life can be a biatch.

Harsha said...

Suicide is not the answer.. when life is so screwed then one should realize that life cant get crappier.. its a chance to have a clean slate.. i wish that guy all the best.. :)

suruchi said...

Hi Pavitra...
Long time no see?
And stylishly cynical...wow!
That’s a cute term!

Suicide I abhor for it’s an absolute waste of something given to u...
But then u are right...sometimes suicide holds answers!
Running away makes u the target of harsh criticism...
Staying..kills u anyways everyday...
Sometimes the in-between is worse than the extremes!
But then some shade of joy does remove the pall from our eyes...
So it’s worth hanging in there too:-)

bebo ♥ said...

There must be some reason to live..
May be just that he is been sent by God...he is special..
everyone is unique...and different...and the only problem with us is that whatever we have, we generally don't cherish that..and dont take out the best of ppl we know...we dont celebrate uniqueness....We look for 'better' and thats how life becomes shit..!
Shit is fun anyway..lol
I love the write up..u rock.

buckingfastard said...

life is full of shit...learn to take it...wen u cant....cut ur wrist and die....simple!!

morality is bullshit invented by neighbours who dont want dead rotting bodies of suicided ppl in neighbourhood!!

Pavitra .... said...

@ Haddock:
Yes, you're right...Suicide is never the answer...
Hehe...I don't have aerated drinks...I just put it for argument's sake...

Pavitra .... said...

@ Miles of Style:
Yeah...it sure can be one! Thanks!

Avi said...

जो भागना नहीं जानते उन्हें किसी न किसी युद्ध में वीर गति को प्राप्त होना ही पड़ता है

Pavitra .... said...

@ Harsha:
Yeah....maybe he does have a way out...But its the tougher way....
Sometimes, suicide does look like the easy way out for people..Thats how our minds work at times...tempting us to take the easy route...

Pavitra .... said...

@ Suruchi:
Hey dear!! Thank you so much.. :)
Yes, you're right. In-between is the worst state you can be in...
But just like I said...Suicide may not be the answer. But it sure looks like the easy way out...Its difficult to find joy in such cases....and sometimes people are not able to hold on that long...

Pavitra .... said...

@ bebo:
Hey thank you so much sweetie!
Yes, thats the main problem...Always wanting what is not...
Appreciating what you have and who you are makes a huge difference...
Take care!!
Thanks again!

Pavitra .... said...

@ buckingfastard:
Hahahaha...nice take!!
But I'd prefer to survive and see what happens next...coz life couldn't get worse than that....could it..?? :D

Pavitra .... said...

@ Avi:
Rightly said! :)

Haddock said...

Those old canvas shoes are back in fashion now.

Pavitra .... said...

@ Haddock:
