As a child I have always believed in the magic of shooting stars… that if you make a wish when it falls it will come true… through out my growing up years and even today I secretly believe in that …and sometimes wish to be like a shooting star.. Like the poet who said.. “I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps "Oh look at that!" Then- whoosh, and I'm gone...and they'll never see anything like it ever again... and they won't be able to forget me ever.”
It happens some times that you feel deserted of all your hopes and dreams… you feel deprived of a gentle touch.. a soothing word that will set things alright…!!Loneliness then starts to cast a shadow in your life like an empty sky at night.. Sometimes things change and they are never the same again…all of a sudden you feel like a kid who has lost its way…that is the way with life..life moves on..change indeed is the only thing that is constant…
That is when you begin to long for that one star of hope somewhere in the corner… that one ray of hope which will make you start believing in your dreams once again..Where you start collecting those bits and pieces of your dreams and start living yet again…. Life then looks like a fairy tale…no matter how gloomy the day might be..you still find fresh blossoms all around..no matter how lost you feel..you still feel secure that someone is going to show you the way…no matter how low you feel..you just know that someone is going to life up your spirits…by just being there…
‘Iktara’ from the movie’ Wake up Sid’ has been a favourite like forever… the song beautifully captures the emotion where you realize the presence of that one star of hope in your life… which makes you move on.. and achieve that what you dream of..Kavitha Seth’s voice is magical…Amit Trivedi is a fabulous musician who has always brought along with him tons of surprises..
Jim Morrison, an American poet once said“That's what real love amounts to- letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending- performing. You get to love your pretence. It's true, we're locked in an image, an act-” “People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. Pain is meant to wake us up. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It's all in how you carry it. That's what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you're letting the world destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to be yourself.” The song makes you realize this fact..Let’s all long for that one star of hope in our lives..let’s not stop believing in ourselves…let’s not give up..
PS: This post is dedicated to my shooting star who fell in my life as a surprise..the one who has promised to be my red bull for life :)
“For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.”
