Bull and Bear story: First instalment

At this very moment I have a feeling. A feeling that I've never had before. I wish I could scrap this blog off forever. And start afresh. A blog less gloomy. Today, suddenly, I look back and realize that I have had enough. I am happy the way things are. I know I am loved. By people ranging all the way from my good old maachh wallah to distant veteran gynecologists from Germany(YES!). Stop telling me that they don't love me enough. They do. They are kind enough to love me as much as they do for the very little I have loved them.

At every step of my life I have been overwhelmed by the love I have had from people I least expected it from. People I thought were inconsequential. And I have wondered. Why squander my feelings on a particular someone(who, incidentally, couldn't care less) instead of giving back to these people what they rightly deserve? There is after all no point in being selfless in love! It's a lot like charitable services. People take them for granted. People should be made to pay for what they get.

Because for us lesser souls, love is an investment. We expect a return. Or we wouldn't be hurt. There would be no jealous zeals otherwise. It's a market out there. And the bargain is on. People are quoting prices, ferrying dreams. It's about how adept you are at packaging and marketing your dreams. Gone are the days when products were brought out in accordance with the demand. Today's trader will create a synthetic demand for his products instead. And there are buyers too. But we will talk about them some other day. Let's end the post on a statutory note for all investors-

  1. The superhuman thing is there in al of us, S

  2. One loves because one wants to.
    Not because one expects to get the same in return. Hm?
    I know one can't help it. One ends up expecting something in return. And that's when one makes oneself vulnerable. Nevermind.
    Remember, there is a difference. And it's up to oneself to make it. Or realise it.

  4. @ Até: I would've been only too happy to be proved wrong.


  5. You were, weren't you? You were expecting the same back. That's where you went wrong. That's fine, I guess. That's where practically everyone goes wrong.

  6. I loved this. I think it's your second best. Will comment again later. My cartoons are coming now.

  7. @ Luthien: Oh! My blog seems to be so terribly sorry for coming in the way of you and your cartoons.It's been blushing all

  8. In what way is love related to the feeling of hurt?

  9. Someday, when i'm awful low,
    When the world is cold,
    I will feel a glow just thinking of you....

  10. @ Saptarshi - huh?

    Anyway, I'm sorry I haven't commented on this one properly yet. I still intend to. Just a bit lazy now...but I will.

  11. @ Luthien: I can wait.You know.Sorry I was all sleepy when you called.

  12. Listen, I don't feel like commenting on this yet. It's weird. You've been writting a lot lately though. Good for you. Nothing seems to be coming to me. Ah, we'll wait and see.
