At a coin flip moment in life, you are faced with two alternate scenarios. Had your heart and brain been aligned, you wouldn’t even have had this coin flip moment. The difference is between what you should and what you want to do. Unfortunately, life is a medley of such moments and what we are now is a stem out of the multiple choices we make in an instant. Imagine traversing a long Markov process leading you to alternate random possibilities.
Happy or sad is just a state of existence. Being the usual selves, we tend to chase after the expected societal norm working towards the journey of chaising after happiness.

As the sun of an adolescent young mind was rising into new horizons of college, the society guided the soft clay to take up pursuit of intellect in engineering. He worked hard under the midnight lamp again to get good grades and learning decades old stuff.
Surprising that a few clicks here and there and one could completely isolate self from the clutches of the digital reality. Sadly, this is what the world has come to. I share a similar mood as I try penning down my thoughts and putting them together for the same digital reality I despise. Ironic and hypocritical; one may call it. But aren’t we all? So getting back to the current train of thought, I really think that technology and digital availability has made us so engrossed into other people’s lives that when we face the harsh reality of spending some quality time with ourself, learning and changing, we fail.
Bring about the change you want to see is what most say when we have heated discussions with ailments in an existing system. Captured in a web of an exisiting system, it is in the human nature to revolt and bring about a transition in how things are done.
