To Err is Human. To Run is Crime.

Today morning when I was on the way to work, I witnessed an incident. It was bad enough that I could not throw the thoughts out which are actually now becoming shallow in my mind & heart.

Our car was nearly 500 meters way when I saw that a Car stopped for a fraction of a minute and zoomed quickly. The sound directed me to the scene and as I saw the car roving, I noticed that there was kid of approximately aged 8-10 on the road crying helplessly signaling his right arm is in deep pain. While I was disturbed and reached closer, a man rushed towards him, he probably knew the kid (may be they were from one of the families staying at the roadside) and took him. We felt so helpless and void inside. At one point during those rush of events…I felt ashamed of being human thinking if it’s we-the human beings then who else shall take the responsibility. But I am sure, whoever that gentleman was, he/she would never be able to get out of this guilt of not hitting the one but from being running from there.
I just pray to God, for the little kid. May he be blessed with good health always.

The denseness in relationships, an intricate state of mind is what could be called as a perfect Complicated Life. There is lot to understand in the otherwise simplest statement I just made.

I always knew about me being complicated! I don’t know but I guess it was the onus of being good. When I say being good, I mean a good daughter, a good sister, a good wife, a good daughter-in-law, a good host, a good friend – no I guess those who stand by me – never bother about me being good or bad, Ah! just realized I have been ‘me’ at certain occasions. Anyways, the benefit of living with the onus of being good is that you never get carried away and you learn to self-restrict. Its like how could I?

Aren’t the words getting complicated? I say so, because I came back to this page after almost an hour after I finished the above paragraph. I have a loss of words. I am worried. Its not usual………I normally finish up my write-ups. I feel I am confused with my words & state of mind. Does this happen to you as well?

But yes, we were talking about the benefits of living with the onus of being good. Hey! What about the drawbacks….many of them. You always keep a part of you closed which shall be unearthed but you die waiting for the right time, right place & may be right people. You always carry this notion – that there is something which people don’t understand or may be something which you want them to listen & understand. You die with a heavy heart because there was so much to say for which you never managed to get an ear for. So many…so sad!

Anyways………I would end it up with what I always believed is the truth at the end of the day. Life is Beautiful. It’s either us or the situations which are complicated!
