I had stopped writing for a while. Simply because I thought why would anyone be interested in reading about my life? I am no celebrity. I haven't climbed the Everest or fought for human rights. I am not even close to this. But at the end of the day, I am a person. And if someone, somewhere has done something heroic worthy of appreciation, doesn't mean that person ceases to be a person. As my favorite writer John Green puts it in his award winning book Paper Towns, (Don't ask me which award. Must have won something considering it was so fabulous.) "What a treacherous thing it is to believe that a person is more than a person."
There are all sorts of people that exist in this world. And the way I look at it, people cannot be divided into segments or factions like they do in a lot of books and movies .People are given labels like nerdy, emotional, diva, snob, indifferent etc. Because in reality, a human being is much more complex. Each person comes with his own insecurities, beliefs and experiences. Thus a person cannot simply be nerdy, or simply be emotional. Because we are combination of more than one traits. We are like those distinct sounds which have unmatched sync with each other, but blend to give rise to a mellifluous euphony.
And even though my life is not as 'readable' as others, it doesn't change the fact that I am an individual. And my life experiences, my aspirations, my thought process cannot be replicated.Though my previous posts might have been slightly pretentious, I promise to be brutally honest about myself henceforth. Or at least, Ill try.
