Insanely sane… Surviving qualmless.
I'm not a perfect person, But I never meant to do those things; And so I have to say before I go, That I just want myself to know. I've found out a reason for me,; To change who I used to be A reason to start over new, and the reason is you. I've found a reason to show, A side of me you didn't know; A reason for all that I do, Before I let you go...

I winked at my own 'Littleness'...!

Don’t you feel bugged when unable to bolg in time? I do feel so. Yesterday night was one such instance. Their was a long long power cut, and I was alone in the dark, as ever!


Went over to the window. A calm breeze was cooling the heated minds. It was a clear moon lit night. A few heads were yawning in the ground outside with occasional bouts of gossips. The huge fair outside had calmed down under the drowsing effect of the silvery night. Everything was cool, calm and soothingly silent. Saving the concrete gilded structures rising jaggedly, everything was at its natural best. The silvery clear night had not a hint of artificiality breaking its spell. A distant insect like creature suddenly blinked into view far far above. Seemed like a multi light saucer blinking in the horizon. It seemed very tiny to me, as if fit to fit into my palm. But wasn’t it a huge airplane?

Then… even I must appear to be so very tiny to them. Or it maybe that they couldn’t even see me! Strange, I felt. Me, this creature who would appear a giant to ants was not even visible to these humans flying over me.


I had a strange sensation, as if traveling backwards, as if I was standing on the brink of a vast ocean. If I was not even visible to those humans inside an iron vessel, then where do I fit into this huge universe…? I am then just a tiny speck of humanity. Something even smaller than a wasp to this solar system, and they suppose truth, justice, temperament everything to be in our grasps? My pride of being a human being, an individual shriveled up tragically! This huge me, I’m just a non-entity-like-creature in this world! Huh!

I felt so little, so little that I started smiling, as Swift put it, “I winked at my own Littleness” ;).

Please do read and comment on my efforts if you find this post popping up anywhere near you :P
