Mind Trail

My first ever blog and may just end up being the last one too (whoe'er reads it, I'm sure will definitely be hoping for it!)

Well the title is self-explanatory but for the benefit of those born with lesser minds(for a lack of better word), this blog makes a valiant attempt to start on a trail of my meandering 'n rambling mind.

The main credit for genesis of this blog must go to the dakota ambassador which ferried me tonight and also is incidentally the starting and ending point of the trail on which I'm gonna embark now. And before I forget, partial credit goes to my fellow passengers, as without their welcome silence my mind wouldn't have been so jobless.

The dakota...i mean my cab for the night, left office @ 9. No music :( meant I had to somehow keep myself occupied for another hour or so. That left my mind to reflect on the day's happenings. If you are thinking that something eventful occurred which I’m gonna reveal here, sorry to disappoint you. The day was no more eventful than any other day. I was as usual in a somber mood when I left office. It did continue that way for some more min. in da cab but suddenly that somber mood completely changed to a euphoric one for no reason. It was very strange, as I had many reasons to be worried but here i was feeling completely blissful. Probably could be the philosophy of "to subconsciously laugh at your own troubles, for self-preservation???"

Anyways my mind took its first diversion and started trying to figure out this weird happening. That led to the thought "do we really need drugs to feel high?" Probably I will dissert this topic later sometime, 'coz my mind stopped @ that thought for only one signal. Driver finally put some music, so thought 'ok, can now enjoy the ride back home', but suddenly was filled with this insane urge to dance (forgot the song which was playing then :( ). I mean I'm sitting in the front seat of the cab, you cannot dance even if you want to, so why that feeling suddenly to shake your leg???

Well that led on to this - "Does mind rule the body or body rule the mind?". If it’s the former, then mind must be sending those signals to the body, responsible for making you feel like moving your leg in this case. But wasn't it the mind itself, that was responsible for reasoning out that its inappropriate to dance. Like many other times, my mind again got stuck up in this dualism issue, so it back-tracked and went on other path -Considering that body desires does rule the mind, then the body itself feels the rythm of the music...that leads to the question of the action or decision to dance. Well my mind got bored @ that point, as like all your people's minds by now. So SIGTERM signal was sent to that thought process.

And before the new fork call, there was some delay, attributed to - having to make some idle talk with the back-seaters. Hmmm...seems like I’ve already lost the trail....hmmm...mmm...ok, found it. The cab went near my old school and i actually got a glimpse of my 'alma matter'. To top that KK's 'pal' song was playing in the background, which made me feel kinda nostalgic probably only for the 3rd or 4th time in my life. And spent some more time reminiscing to myself.

After this looks like I've totally lost the in-between trail. The next thought signal I am able to recollect is 'When did jealousy first see the light in this world?' As much as I try, I am not able to remember what led me to that signal in the first place :(. Anyways the next thought path, naturally took me to the topic of 'seven deadly sins'. I'm sure I'll discourse about them in detail, what they mean to me etc etc...but definitely in future. Well for those who don't know what I'm talking abt, sorry again, 'm totally not in mood to be a teacher. Obviously since we were talking about 'seven deadly sins', how can my mind skip a chance to re-visit the movie 'SEVEN', a darn good movie for all the obvious and non-obvious reasons :).

I was still mulling over it, when the cab reached the signal near my home and I had to instruct driver of the directions. This sparked off a new thread regarding the ' Concept & Existence of a Universal Language'. Well no soon it was started it ended by giving control to another one - "what if people understood each other without needing to speak, a community of la mind-readers!" Proceeding along in the same pathway..."a fire-wall kinda device may be developed to block other people from reading your mind" That obviously had to lead me to "Wheel of time" and "warding of your dreams" idea.

And that proved to be the last track to be visited by my mind, as the cab finally reached home!!!
