I am walking on a road. Sweating, sulking, tired. The sun is on its prime.  There is no one but me between a long, barren road and a clear, bright sky. The heat is unbearable. The road is all cracked. I want rest. I want water. I want shade. I want to just sit and sulk. But the road provides no such luxury. Life always have its own say on what I want and what I get.

This road provides nothing but a path.
And the journey is strenuous and demanding. Yet I have to walk on. Maybe the sun will set someday. Maybe it will rain someday and this all will get wash away. Maybe someday this road will take a different turn. Maybe tomorrow will be a little easier than today.

Hope – you are a bitch.

  1. I hope you can be more accepting of the now. I used to exactly think like you. Post the covid scenario. A lot of how I used to process things have changed, and I’ve found myself to expect less and be happier. But thanks for writing this. So rateable. Shine on ๐Ÿ’œ

      1. Well its a sorry tale to tell. I am drowned in data, attrition, retention, recruitment, grievance, promotion etc etc. And a never going neck pain. I guess I am getting old ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
        Often i wonder why we invest our money and time eventually to get enslaved in a corporate world. Its so far better to pursue sports or other activities atleast if nothing else we will have a healthy mind and body.

      1. Aah.. internships are tiring. You must be exhausted by the end of the day.

        I am in middle of game of thrones series…Book 3. But if you ask me for recommendation I would suggest go for The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini ..its my favourite so far. Or you can also read Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami. Or the Palace of Illusions by Chitra Banerjee Divakurni. None of these should disappoint you.
        Let me know your favourite book.

      2. Yeah…I am dead by day end and starting of it too๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ once I slept at 8 pm and got up at 8.00 am๐Ÿคฃ

        I have yet to read Palace of illusions. I want to read it since long. The other 2 have read. GoT seems nice. How are you liking it? Unpopular opinion but not a fan of GOT series.

        Kite runner and thousand splendid sun are amazing books. Haven’t read since ages properly. Started reading the last mughal and it’s left in mid way. I usually read classics when I got time. I like Great expectations, Anna Karriena, Emma

      3. Kite runner brought out such strong emotions in me. I have read it so many times. Its a gem.
        Well honestly I am a huge fan of GOT series and hated how they ended it. So that’s the reason I started with books as the last book is still yet to come and I am hoping the writer gives a better ending.
        You like classics. Wow. I tried reading it long back but somehow i didn’t enjoy it at that time. But now i am thinking to try one again.

      4. I even didn’t like the end of GoT. It was a huge disappointment. Let me know how the book ends when the last book comes out.

        You should try reading classics. Start with the few light ones and then go for heavy. Jane Austen is all time fav and you should try Anna Karriena too

      5. Hai na… It was soo bad. I don’t know why they put such an end to such an amazing show. I will surely let you know the book’s end. I just hope its worth.
        Sure let me complete GOT and then i will start maybe with Emma.

  2. Spring will come and wind will blow. The road will be covered with green leaves. And sky be full of birds. Such is hope. Hope is a precious possession!

    It’s so nice to see you here, Yeshu. Been a long time.

      1. Hope can be an evil force too. This is philosophically very interesting๐Ÿ˜ƒ.
        Do you think, maybe hope along with some rationality might never be an evil force?

        Great that you are back. Breaks are refreshing. Little time in the mountains, near a river along with a favourite book.

        I’ve been great! Haha reading, traveling, writing, working. But at peace!

      2. That’s again a hope of hoping a hope with some rationality. But who are we to say anything..to each their own.

        I wish I could have gone to a mountain. I am craving to go there. Maybe soon.
        Good to know you are at peace. What are you reading? And where did you travel?

      3. Hope for hope of hoping a hope. But you are right it’s just a hope, each of their own.
        Yup mountains are awesome.
        Currently? I’m reading “Hooked by Nir Eyal”. Have you read it? I went for a few bicycle tours, and Goa. Next month planning himalyas(or rajasthan if my companions get worried about rains xD)

      4. Oh I see. It’s quite apparent from your wonderful blog, that you are a fan of fiction. Fantastic!
        Nothing as beautiful as Himalayas. Absolutely. That’s the first option. Only if monsoon has other plans, I would change the destination

  3. Deep post here friend. I can tell that you have been through some rough patches (trust me, we have all been through some of those). Yes, expectations can make things seem like it is not going according to plan, and yes, hope can look dim. However, it pays to remember that hope does not always come from our actions, hope comes from up above. We have a divine being in heaven who is working to ensure that things work in our favor. However, we need to connect with God and Jesus and tap into our divine guidance and gifts. Many people work hard on a road that they were never destined to travel to begin with. With the light of guidance, more people will meet success.
    The Bible says in Psalm 62:5-6
    Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
    my hope comes from him.
    Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
    he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
