When infatuations seem to wear away


Once there was a life, whose journey was abruptly and unknowingly blocked. It was forbidden the right to move on. There was no court to appeal to revoke the unexpected blockade. Nor was any human soul ready to take upon the task of helping the life move on.

Everyone was busy in their own work. Some were enjoying success; some were caught in the depression that has arisen from failure while the remaining were getting ready to face the tests of time in the future with a hope that they would pass at least one of them.

It could not find a ray of hope in atleast one of the millions who surrounded that life. All that the life could see was the sunrise and the sunset, with the interim time being occupied by blank pages on which that life was too reluctant to scribble something for fear of things turning worse.

One fine morning, a solution was found out. Life has completely disconnected from others. It was too intelligent to realize that what constituted itself before the advent of the barricades of walls was nothing but itself with a few infatuations. It had now decided to revoke those infatuations and false illusions in a bid to reduce pain and human suffering. They kept it engaged it for the greater part of the day. The past was forgotten and it began to dwell in the present life filled with infatuations.

Some of these infatuations kept it engaged, some of them promised to keep it engaged in the future and the remaining boasted them of having kept life engaged till a few days ago.

False illusions of assured success carried away life to a world built of infatuations- the things that don’t really exist. There was a promising career, a brighter future, a happier life but something was missing. Life could realize it even in these times when it used to occasionally think about the futility of these infatuations. But these thoughts were wiped away as soon as they entered for it feared being transported back to that lonely world surrounded by walls on all four sides.

‘What if it isn’t real? It has every chance of turning real and I am able to get what I wish to have’ were the thoughts that moved in its mind. It still could understand that all these things can provide only temporary satisfaction and nothing else but it felt that that is more than what it is capable of experiencing.

The only thing that it could not realize is that if life has spent all the time spent till now in breaking that barricade, the happy ending would have been welcoming it by this time. But it was too late. Opposing powers have expanded the walls in all the three dimensions so that it could never move to the other side- the thing it wished to have.

A month or so passed and it realized the mistake it has been doing. Infatuations kept fading away, for it is their nature. Infatuations are meant to divert attention from the goal goal and present falsification in the best appealing way. Having realized the truth, life started its work of breaking the barrier.

It is trying to accomplish the task, and will continue to do so until it gets what it wished for. The task might not be fulfilled but it will surely be left with the happiness of having tried for the attainment of eternal success.

Life goes on….. And so will more and more infatuations come in the way.

Great writing. But what I feel is, It gives us the drive to do more, if we visualize what could possibly be the results of what we do. But again, yes, we should what the reality is, and not keep thinking a lot, just about our imaginary world.

Wonderful post:)
