The silent chaos...

1 month away from blogs... immersed in a world made solely of Soap, Java, XML & web services... so much has transpired in the world outside... so much... from the Satyam saga to Barrack Obama's swearing in... from Dr.Singh's surgery to the Slumdog awards... murders at Bangalore homes to moral policing at Mangalore pubs...news keeps seeping into my eyes & ears from all across the world... stirring my nerve centres today & numbing them the very next day... life moves on... silently... sullenly... effortlessly...


Everyday as the eyes are glued to the insensitive 15mm monitor & hands stuck to the ever-obliging black & white keyboard, the brain frozen in its dark hideous chambers... the mind racing on a non-existant treadmill of hopes,desires & ambitions.... dreams floating on the eyeballs....words swelling on the finger tips... waiting to be expressed... longing to break out of the cocoon...to scream & announce to the rest of the world of its untimely birth...wanting to be a part of the paramount ocean of words sailing in the media outside....


Today, there is so much to write about... so many incidents in my life & the lives of others that have impressed & compressed me during these days of "mind arrest"... i am unable to pick n choose a single solid aspect of life that sojourns the mighty kingdom of mind... am just flipping through the pages of the unwritten omnibus of existence so far... may be a few random leaves scattered here & there.... is what i wanna grab and place in strained sync here... some old & withered... some green & beautiful... some warm & sunny... some buried deep down in the muds alongside the roots... all the myriad shades of strife, success & survival... through the winding lanes of life...


The deafening sound of silence within.... the structured chaos of the inner eye... deeply engrossed in active soliloquy... the humming of fellow computers in the background, the rush of a hundred foot steps across the cubicle of auricles & ventricles, the downpour of a million thought droplets from the brain clouds, the paramount ocean of memories lashing on the crude rocks of time.... stopping only to stare at the sinking moods at the brim of the horizon... life moves on.... a ballad of mindprints embossed on the drowning sand dunes within...

I must confess that I took some time to understand what you were trying to say.. actually I not very sure even now.. But I suppose you were referring to how we are overwhelmed by what's happening within ourselves, that we have little or no time for all the chaos that surrounds us..

That said, after reading this post I was reminded of Shankar Mahadevan's song - Breathless

Anyway thanks for comparing this with the "Breathless" piece! :)
