Random thoughts

In the end, what school you went to, what degrees you earned, what jobs you had makes no difference. Were you surrounded by people who love you, were you able to return that love, during this whole process were you happy is all that matters. If not, then all you are left with are meaningless numbers and letters printed on paper which can be easily torn.
The people you choose to surround you is the key. If you choose the right people, you have a chance at happiness. If the people you chose are not right but you hold the courage and wisdom to walk away, you still have a chance at happiness. But if you choose the wrong people and cannot walk away, you are screwed.
Life is precious, we don't realize it till we near the end or see a loved one near the end. You have to see death at 15cm normal vision distance to appreciate life. It's funny.. This whole thing called life and all the unnecessary complications we build around it..

Compromised lives - that's the movie Tamasha in two words. This post is not a movie review, but an insight into the life that a lot of people live. As depicted in the movie, we are all running a race, we don't know what the race is about, or what it is for, everybody is running, so we are also running. Are we first or second, or ninth or tenth? We don't know. Choose your own race and ace that.
How many of us are really able to do that? Stop running everyone else's race, and run your own? I don't know, maybe because my outlook is small or because I am surrounded by lots and lots of people who are in the rat race, that I feel that this percentage of people who run their own race is very small. However, something inside me, makes me believe that I am part of the small population that lives compromised lives.
Be yourself - that's the movie Tamasha in two other words. You don't have to change for the world, or do things to please people around you. Believe in your wings and fly.
Like one of those forwards, the birds trust it's wings not the branch of the tree it's sitting on..
