Take A Break

I was again on a visit to my maternal uncle’s place and that meant away from computers and internet. They have become so integral part of my life that if one day I don’t’ check my emails, it’s like missing a meal. It sounds like exaggerating but its true to a large extent. But, then I realized I had been missing other things in life because majority of time goes with the computers and television. Yes, its get kind of boring initially but for a day this change is more than welcome.

The first thing I noticed when I was traveling in bus. I was in a sleeper coach in bus and I was not able to sleep. So, I just started looking in the sky and beautiful star patterns. I don’t remember the last time I did that without thinking about other things. It was watching the stars without any thought in mind.

Next day, I was at my uncle’s home and was playing with my cousines. My 7 years old sister asked me to play ‘ghar ghar’ with her. She had the small toys to be put together as home. I know it sounds crazy and laughable, but it’s certainly worth playing after u see the happiness on her face. We never get time to play such games with kids when we have the monsters computer and television, the former one will be my means of living 😀

These are just two small instances which will illustrate the point I wanted to put forward. It reminded me of the beautiful poem of the movie Lage Raho Munnabhai. I love this poem coz it reminds us what not to miss in life, when we are vegetating in our lives. So once in a while a change is needed and can’t be expressed in a better way than this poem.

Shaher ki is daud me daud ke karna kya hai?
Jab yehi jeena hai dosto to phir marna kya hai?

Paheli barish me train late hone ki fikr hai
Bhul gaye bhigte hue tahelna kya hai?

Serials ke kirdaaro ka saara haal hai malum
par maa ka haal puchhne ki fursat kaha hai?

Ab ret pe nange pao tahelte kyu nahi?
108 hai chanel phir dil bahelte kyu nahi?

Internet se duniya ke to touch me hai,
lekin pados me kon raheta hai jaante tak nahi.

Mobile, Landline sab ki bharmaar hai,
Lekin jigri dost tak pahuche aise taar kaha hai?

Kab dubte hue suraj ko dekha tha, yaad hai?
Kab jaana tha shaam ka guzarna kya hai?

To Dosto Shaher ki is daud me daud ke karna kya hai
Jab yahi jeena hai to phir Marna kya hai?
