The "CTRL + Z' in Life

CtrlPlusZ

I do drink sometimes, and each of the drinking sessions has been big lessons and realizations for me. Even the stupidest people are at their wisest best when they are 3 pegs down and the wisest of all do not mind/ hesitate behaving weirdly or saying something which they would have not said ever even on a gun-point, if they had their sanity with them. So, last night, I had a small, emergency kind of drinking session with Vineet. I love beer and stay away from whisky, although occasional rum. And I thought about “Ctrl + Z” moments in my life.

If you are reading this, you know Ctrl + Z. Thanks to Bill Gates; it is easy to undo your errors but only in computers. God has not made any provision of this kind in our life till date. But still I wish that we all should have some counts, like 2 or 3 occasions when we can undo/ reverse what we did and make a fresh start.

“To err is human”- this was the most common line that I used to read in the Preface of my text books in school and colleges. What it meant that as a human, we are bound to make mistakes. There is no wrong in this until you are making stupid mistakes repeatedly. But some of them, even if made just once, leave a big impact on our life. And its not just our life, it sometimes involves our near and dear ones too and ever one of us is affected. And then you realize, this could have been easily avoided. Why I even did it?

Sometimes, in ignorance or sometimes, not caring about the various consequences, we commit them. And we screw our life. I wish only if God has allowed us, in our whole lifetime, few chances to go back, erase every mark of what we did and make a fresh start; may be many miscommunications and differences that I have created with certain people would not have been there.

I seriously hope that for the coming generations, God does think about this as our next generations will be more error prone. Let’s hope they have enough sanity with them to help their life runs smoothly.

4 Reasons Why You Should Have a Crush in Your School Days

*not this crush, dumbass*I have had kind of a fickle past (childhood to be exact) if I talk about girls in my class. From class 6th to 10th i.e. in 5 years, I had crush on 5 different girls. After one year ended, either the girl’s section changed or I realized that this is not working, so I moved on to another girl (#truestory). Except one of them, I think all of them knew that I had a crush on them. But just because everybody called it crush and not ‘love’, the girls never took it seriously and opted to crush my crush. And I don’t blame them. Instead I am grateful to them. Love in that age, are you kidding me? If that would have been the ishq wala love, I would have screwed my life a decade earlier (#fact). And my “How I Met Your Mother” story would have started with me as a 12 year old (#ridiculous). And I would not have met the amazing girl I am with right now.But say whatever, those crushes are something that I remember more than vaguely from those days of my life. Even in these t…

30 Minutes in Delhi Metro

It was just another Delhi evening while I was commuting in Delhi metro. Travelling in metro has always been boring when I am alone. Worse, I am not addicted to the headphone music listening. So, normally I forget them and then have no choice than to keep going back to my phone to check new FB notifications in every 5 minutes. I was addicted to both- the Facebook and my phone. You might have heard a story where a king’s life was in parrot. My cell phone is my parrot. This evening, luck was far away. I was in Yellow line that goes all the way from Jahangirpuri to Gurgaon. I was going to Chhatarpur and the stations on that route are underground. So, connectivity was at the minimum level. 3G signals, well, obviously were absent. For 30 minutes, doing nothing, standing and shifting balance from one leg to another is a tough job. All you can do is to have a quick nap or look at others. Gen X, grunting and complaining about the Delhi government, Kejriwal and scams. Gen Y, like me, engrosse…
