Two years back, while I was trying to comb my hair I found the first white hair. At first I thought it’s just a reflection of light from behind. But some days later my sis pointed some white hairs back of my head. I was like… Oh $#@t!!! I am getting older. It was the same time when I just started blogging. I don’t know why I didn’t blog about this.
First white hair is sort of turning point in your life. Often we relate it to experience. Your experience is directly proportional to the amount of white hairs on your head(What about the ones who are bald??). That’s why they say “These white hairs have seen a lot more things than you have.” Try to imagine a character artist saying this line. Becomes more effective. I have been involved in many conversations where this sentence struck.
The sad part of this story is that white hairs are on the verge of extinct. Hair dyes or Hair colors have changed this era. If you find someone with colored hair than he got white hairs(Most probably. I use these two words to save my life). A couple of months back my cousin brother colored his hair with white color. Not all but just the front part. I asked him why?? He said, “Everyone’s is coloring with brown, orange, pink and white is getting extinct. This is to save the whites and to get a different look among others.” True said. The only person with white hair I remember is Mr. Amitabh Bacchan with his white beard. Even the mothers in TV serials now don’t have white hairs. It’s difficult to differentiate who is mother and who is wife if you watch the serial for the first time.
I find it easy to bond and have conversation with white haired persons than youngsters of my age group. Maybe it’s because we are like haired, as in “like skinned” or “like religion”. Kind of Birds of the same feather flock together. They got a lot of experience and I have a big appetite for life experiences. I listen when they talk. Though on the verge of extinction, these white hairs can be found in places called old age homes. I am glad that at least someone is saving the white hairs.
Till you find your first white hair…
There is a long time period between the moment we are born and the moment we die. That time period we call as life. We have to live that. Don’t waste this valuable time in things you are not supposed to do. Neither waste your time doing nothing. At some stage you will face the situation stated in above picture. Don’t ever let that happen to you.
When we are kids, we don’t know life. We live it without any restrictions. The way we want. We laugh many times. No one have to tell us to enjoy the life. As we grow up, we stop living life under the burden of expectation and responsibilities. They do have priorities. But Never let them surpass your living.
Sing – Even if your voice is as bad a crow.(I am with you )
Dance – Like no one is watching you and Even if your dancing makes someone forget theirs.
Laugh – Even if people call you mad. Only make sure you are not sent to asylum.
Live your Life and…
Do you think they are still used? Having a Macbook is a proud feeling. Anyone doesn’t want a Mac? You won’t find anyone. It’s a different case if you ask a beggar about Macbook. That would be an exception. Old Macs started a revolution and it continues. The only change is that they are state of art gizmos on look side. They have replaced old Macs. But do you know old Macs are still used? Check it out.
I have already written some posts regarding language. But this is a vast subject which is sufficient to give you topic everyday. If you know more than one language, which most of you do, then you have a potential to write about language. I am good at four languages and about five of them i am in learning stages. So I have good material to write about though I choose not to write often. That would convert this blog into “The Language Blog”. After some days I’ll get some eggs and tomatoes at me.
This incidence happened yesterday while I was talking to my friend. Yeah the same friend who own a pharmacy. I talked to him after so many days due to my busy schedule. (I hate to use this “busy” word.) I was standing there and doing the thing I liked the most. Observing peoples. I do it unconsciously now as it has turned out to be my habit. After a few minutes an old woman entered the pharmacy. This is the woman whom I helped to get to the clinic. (Are you listening Santa?? I deserve a gift here.)
She gave her prescription and started talking. A bit surprised, she couldn’t talk properly. The last time I met her she was talking good. This time she wasn’t able to pronounce properly. Every word she uttered was incomplete and used to end abruptly. Try to speak without using your tongue. Something similar happened. What amused me that we were still able to get what she wanted to say.
This mystery will stay with me for long. How can we just interpret when we are unable to get the whole word? Of course it was not 100% correct interpretation but close to that. Its the beauty of a small part inside our head, that we call brain. A while back I read an e-mail where the words had the first and last letter in correct position and rest all altered. I was still able to read the paragraph without any mistake or without much effort. I hope to solve this mystery in this lifetime.
Request to all search engines: Don’t mark this post as spam due to the use of the word pharmacy. There are pharmacies which exists offline.
Till I solve the mystery…
When cattle are crossing, if the old bull swerves, they all go swerving following the lead. So among men, if he who’s reckoned best lies not right, much more do other folk. If the ruler be unrighteous, the whole land dwells in woe.
That is exactly what is our government. The leaders are like bulls. They have powers and they go mad. They hit, they run, they kill. Under the fear of those we vote them again and bring them back to rulers. The cycle continues. Since the leaders are mad, we also go mad. We also do bullish thing and it includes bullshit. We don’t think and we don’t have anything to think for. Just follow the thing that leaders does.
No one want’s to break the cycle. Someone has to control the bull, There is no cowboy here. The species is rare. Cowboys can handle all types of bulls. Once a single bull, a single old bull, is in control then the ones surrounding it come in control without any effort. It was good to see in current US election that there is a big change. Now that cowboy should control the bulls.
Situation is getting worse in many countries. Some have started slaughtering the bulls. That is not a good choice, but you have to go through that phase once they are out of your hands. I can only hope for more cowboys to come front. Can I be one???
