Song In Your Heart

by Uttam Gill (writer), BOMBAY(MUMBAI), August 27, 2014

When you wish to live then, each day would turn out to be better. Make you own music…and live with song in your heart…

I have not been writing consistently for last few months and to me writing is more than a passion. Today once again, I am getting into the mode, to regain my lost touch. Today with all certainty, I am committing myself with absolute intention to clean up the mess, of my own emotional turmoil. While doing so, I deny any invasive gesture of anybody, who intends to belittle me. Those who have done is a story of past and I don’t hold any grudges. All within the gamut of my reasons, let me construct my life with more sanity, love and passion.

Yes my friend, we must understand the thresh hold of our own emotional elasticity that how far we can endure…While acquiring the in-depth understanding, don’t forget to smile over the best things you have experienced. As I received accolades and brickbats too, it has helped me in maintaining my balance in most provocative circumstances too…It would be wrong on my part to say that my slate is clean and I have never lost temper…I have many times and I admit that… but I realize the futility of loosing shirt over the issues. The agonizing moments thereafter left me dry. My friends before such storming sessions of emotion dehydrates you, just take a pause and correct the disposition. No cribbing…no claiming…or any justification to define yourself as correct would not fetch a results as you expect. Accept the verdict with grace because you are not tailor made for them who holds views contrary to you…Read that why, time and again your propriety being questioned…I know egos may not permit to accept the admission and even knowing fully that you are not wrong…my friend, with ego you lost at the very first step itself. My years of trials and tribulations do not scare me to accept the reality; rather I see the wisdom in accepting the facts.

Ceremonial exchange of pleasantries from thousands of years have been taken and accepted as most humble way of giving somebody a reason to smile. Even these gestures at time gets corrupted due to poor communication and that’s when the disintegration starts.

In ascending mode of my philosophical probing, I am getting eclectic about attaining the insightful truth.

Smother the fire before it burns you out…let no conflict be so overpowering, that your own existence gets expose to grave risk of obliteration. My friends justify your existence as sane fully as you can. We are not here to pass strictures over others…we are not here to cause aspersions over others…we are not here to contest lies…we are not here to demolish the edifice of anybody’s character…As it is, we have problems in the traditional world. If net is given as an alternative mode of living, then why not gain the foothold in a way, that one gets a real return of happiness, which he or she so far failed to get by traditional mode of living. Virtual life on net is real life…

The pertinent reflections of my view under no circumstances are with suggestive overtures …My writing…my blogs are meant for me to talk to myself…a source of introspection…sharing this introspection is not meant to gain rewards but to accept criticism …This exercise is to provide a mirror image of my thoughts… Any value addition in our life can be done by soul searching only.

My friends those who are with me for many years I am indebted to you for making my life so beautiful. I have gained enough here. You all have drafted my life and now I am going through the glorious 50s of my age and I see you’re constructive contribution in building me. Those who are new; to them, I say that we have many more innings of life to share with. When you wish to live then, each day would turn out to be better. Make you own music…and live with song in your heart…

Very well thought out and written Uttam. I know you write to introspect. I also can say I do this at times. It helps me keep my thinking on the right tract. We all struggle at time with understanding life and our emotions. Your words are wise and I agree....let us live life with a song in our heart and joy as our guide....beautiful to read your inspiring thoughts again.

Barb has nailed it Uttam and so have you my friend, great piece. Unless you find some writing pocket of least resistance in your own sometimes 'self critical' hardened outlook within, then writing becomes a bit meaningless, don't think i'll ever find true peace except for scribbling. More often than not it's people wanting a piece of you that's the problem...then hanging a wallpaper of words covers the walls of your sometimes claustrophobic reason for being, however temporary a reprieve from inner demons real or imagined. Good or bad judgement by others of your innermost feelings is not the point of conjecture. The fact that you have written is the point in my opinion, but then i'm usually wrong which is a stirring starting point to robust debate which there should be more of likened to your post-summing up i believe, the overall cloak of life. And you have undone pertinent buttons. Cheers Uttam...more please :>) The older i get the more confused i become and writing is better than banging your head on the wall of reality and reason.Each to his or her own, whatever makes you feel good.
