Weird thoughts

1. Birthday

Well, I did not celebrate my birthday this time as I turned 28. It had been my long live dream to die at the age of 27. I believed all cool guys die at the age of 27: Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin. I wanted to be in that super cool league. It had been my long lived dream. This birthday marked a special day, a day of my shattered dream.

2. Materialism

Everywhere people are flashing their iPhones, Samsung apps trying to be cool and others are really admiring them. The consumption society has made us feel that happiness lies in having things but has failed to teach us the happiness of not having things.
There should be marketers, guerrilla marketeers, ambush marketeers, subliminal marketeers trying to teach people the benefit of not having an iPhone6 or a  samsung S4. How the world is better without these trapping gadgets.

3. Middle class

Sigh, and one day we all will be raising middle class kids feeding them on Horlicks, sending them maths tuition and desperate them to have an engineering degree (which will be of no use) and then MBAs and then ultimately work in an organisation where compensation awarded would be inversely proportional to the performance. Well, life work in circles my friend!

4. Love Chats

Well, I do not have any love letter but love mails and gmail chat histories. They are mostly crap and dangerous evidences too. How foolish and mushy I acted, how prisoned I was to the whims and fancies of a girl(s). The worst mails are those exchanged during break ups, where I plead and pleaded just to be informed that I was some monster!
PS: Well most of the thoughts above are not that I could gather it right now (at this very moment). Well they sprung up during my casual conversations with some of my mad friends when we were just trying to escape the inequity of the restlessness of our minds!

I read this joke in the Introduction to Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis and Other Stories, which I am sharing with you: Two nouveaux rich oligarchs are chatting. Oligarch A shows Oligarch B a new tie he has bought from Gucci.

“How much did it cost?” asks Oligarch B. “$1000” replies Oligarch A.

Oligarch B replies with amazement, “$1000? A rip-off! In that shop over there, you can buy the same tie for $2000!”

No one really moves on. Just the interpretation of memories changes.
Love hate or indifference. Haunts you always.
