This is my life

by Uttam Gill (writer), BOMBAY(MUMBAI), July 29, 2012

watch the video

It is about freedom, when one decides to break the shackles and embarks on a journey to gain happiness. And once they do, they say, “This is my life.”

Starvation raises the siren and from the load of conventions, she struggles to surface. In dilemma, she grapples with truth and lies. She refuses to tie down and with stoic defiance; she enlists herself, to the cadre of die hard dreamers. People raise eyebrows; question the validity of her disposition and refuse to give space for her to buy any peace with life.

She knows that her happiness cannot be borrowed on imposing terms of conventional belief. She is firm and that’s how, she sets on a journey to realize her dream.

Today, she decided to cross the bridge, which she always thought would connect her to the world of cherished dream. And she does. She breaks the convention and unbound embarks on a journey to feel the freedom.

In her new find mode, she discovers reason to rejoice. She raises her hands to embrace the cloud and prays for rain. She is at peace. In here serene existence, she understood the absurdity of gone time. And now, all she doing is composing a song to celebrate her unfettered existence. She is reborn... Thunderous cloud applauds her rebirth and rain too comes to bless her...She dance and says, “THIS IS MY LIFE”

This is beautiful Uttam, society does very much try to impose their creeds and beliefs on us and how we "should" live, I think I will always be a rebel of sorts and refuse to boxed into their definition of who or what i will be...May we all dance to our own tune...life is too short to allow other's opinions to stifle our dreams ...I really enjoyed this...nice song also...

Wow... Beautiful... You wrting is also like a song... Freedom, in fact, is real existence, where your soul gets happy... I dont understand why norms of this world are limiting or tiding up in a small box....

Beautifully expressed.

How do you write like that? Do you speak that way too? :D

WHen I first saw this article and then read it I thought the video of that lovely girl was going to be of her singing Bill Joel's song "This is My life". :)
