Passion / Reason

pas•sion |ˈpa sh ən|
1. strong and barely controllable emotion.

Have you ever heard how your voice sounds coming through the amplifiers of passion?

There is a distinct resonance that it has, an almost unbreakable quality which transcends reason. And there in lies the problem.

Passion is all consuming. It strains the reins of reason, which is all that channels it to fulfil its destiny.

Passion clouds Reason.

To make one heard the other has to be masked.

Passion disregards the need for reason to channel itself. While reason heeds not the wild notions of passion.

Ignorant are they both … They do not realise that it is not in their individuality that they should revel, but in their duality.

Within each is hidden a secret desire to be what the other is and within each is the power to obliterate the other.

Find Equilibrium and there lies the key

Where do you turn to for Inspiration? … Inside You? … Outside?

What if, at times … it just doesn’t seem to be worth the search?

What if in the echoing silence all around there are screams of chaos? What when, the silence is more deafening than the screams?

We fall, stumble, get up and dust ourselves and march on with heads held high … for how long? Sometimes the march itself is aimless. What happens when you are moving in circles?

What happens when axioms remain just that … axioms, but are eventually no closer to the truth than truth itself. What happens when the hollowness is all ensuing and omnipresent.

What happens when reflections are empty and all you see is the void. What if the presence of the void is scarier than the void itself?

What happens when things that matter run through their shelf life?

What happens when the questions just remain questions and the answer, even though present, isn’t an answer?

What happens when all you see in the void are vestigial fragments of a once delirious vision, floating in the murky waters of a fragmented conscious?

Sometimes … It takes so much more to sit and watch the world go by.

Happy Independence Day India.

62 years of freedom.

Gulzar Saab’s words recited by Amitabh Bachchan in a way nobody except Gulzar could’ve, most honestly try to describe where we stand at this juncture in time.
