There is always an intricate line of faith & confidence between who you are & what you try hard to be or ought to achieve from your life,
which if snapped lands you in the midst of just no-mans land.
This thursday was just another sunny day in Scotland, a perfect catch for those canvas shoes & the football crazy guys….
Yeah, I was one of them this time, perhaps it was a tad too uneasy for me with my defending & striking skills,
I too donned the shorts this time & walked into the Goals Soccer Grounds, it was gonna be a game of football after a long good break of 6 years,
so flying kicks the air, rolling on the ground & the football swooshing pash my legs wasn’t something that I didn’t expect, but what commenced was a lovely game which made me demanding for more once it ended.
Not to forget that I had some really supportive & talented colleagues : Kamran, Jim, Ricard, Matt, Alan etc who didn’t make me feel out of place despite the near misses & flying kicks in the air 😀
I couldn’t quite help but laughing at myself noticing the ball going in the exact opposite direction.
As always every football match has its “side-effects” which is nothing new, we had a player down in the first minute in an ankle sprain from a tackle, but it didn’t seem quite one of the guys to give up Kamran was back on his foot & blazing away with the ball.
The other casualties did exist like Richard falling on his wrist over me trying to defend the ball without me noticing him from behind. 😦
Nevertheless, it was an hour of amazing sports with laughs here & there and some good sporting spirit.
I finished off without much ado not scoring even a single goal despite having a close shave at almost three direct hits & did pretty well defending the goal by getting battered by the ball a tad too often :D.
The match ended on a good note, with our team losing by a goal ( 5-4 ).
All went good for a match after so long for me, just hope the Richard’s wrist get’s well soon before he comes with the ball or bat 😛 after me 😦 hehe…..
Looking forward to a many more matches & getting back my much lost footie form in the weeks to come…
“Rome wasn’t built in a day neither would I ever become a Messi Overnight” hahaha 😀
Clogged roads, honking traffic and a sea of umbrellas fighting through,
It was a usual busy rainy Saturday we are so used to.
Grumbling away at the messy sidewalks, a quick swear at the arrogance of the taxi driver,
A lousy day at work, messy wet clothes and a yearning to reach home faster…
How often have we cursed our stars through the day
How often has it been so easy to just give up and fall to depressing routine so easy a prey
Sipping through a mocha at a wayside coffee shop,
I watched the bustling city chug away past showing no signs to stop.
My mind sifted through thoughts of the monotonous moves of life,
Rain or no rain, every day continues to bring with it its share of strife.
And then I saw her toothy smile as she held onto her mamma’s hand and past…

A rather sunny day out as I sip my cup of coffee in the cafe,
Do I feel the subtle silence all around or is it just the silence that echoes deep within ?
I know I have said things, done things I just don’t mean, but just never did the restraint ever fall in,
Never did choice govern spontaneity at the heat of the hour & it was mere temper that played the villain always ,
Yeah, I did eventually prove & achieve what I yearned for..but all at a cost I won some I lost some, but there wasn’t a moment that the scars of the losses didn’t hurt
The pleasure of wins did always motivate the step on the mountain despite all the broken anklesThat was yesterday I never doubt why it was or how it was but I did wonder why there never ought to be another time,
Today I relate the calmness of the water in the sea to my state of mind & realise the Choice is always mine & there is no second chance, “You either Burn it or Let It Burn You”
The Silence, Solitude & my Soul has always been my companion through the Fall , But now even the RIse seems incomplete without them…
The World of some beautiful people & children, I see just fade in & out as the light shines across the glass.
That’s what I have earned after all this, some call it the conspicuous beginning of the end.
But I say the Beginning is still far far away, that the power of my self-belief
Regardless of how calculative, subdued, or promising the world calls you, the Ability to Rise in Your Own Limits is still bestowed deep within you…”This is your Today” !
The Ray of light breaks out from the dull & dreary confines of the overcast skies hoping to rise above all.
Little does it know that there are a million hearts out there would look upto it to see what may come of it.
I always believe how much ever I say that I leave the sequence of events to destiny but deep down there’s always a small molecule of faith in the hope of goodness.
Some small feeling saying that something good is expected, whether she would say yes or whether I would get the job or will the bad times shy away soon…
Wishes :: they are numerous of them
The fact is that every sign of hope is just a seed implanted in our subconscious mind for our deepest desires from time or the events preceding the inevitable.
Its always never too late to start believing in “Yourself”, boost your morale, self-confidence & face things the Way they come…rather than live in the anticipation of miracles to happen when your Heart knows they may not…what has to happen will find a way to happen someway another despite trying everything to change it.
Remember there is always light you can see at the end of the tunnel & there is always an oasis you spot in the desert…
But take some time & think its always for you to decide before whether the light is an illusion or the oasis was only a mere mirage…
Strangely ironic at times isn’t it? …
