Today’s prompt asks

As a kid, you must have imagined what it was like to be an adult. Now that you’re a grownup (or becoming one), how far off was your idea of adult life?

Anyone remember this movie? don’t be shy! step up!  lol! If you had asked me, how I would of envisioned myself now? since my childhood years I would of never in my wildest dreams ever imagined I’d be where I am today, A father to a beautiful daughter and writing the way I am now. I was too carefree and selfish to think this far ahead, But I have no regrets for I have all I could ever want. Dang, I hope this post makes sense lol :)

Misconceptions of Adulthood


ARK:

True misconceptions…

Adulthood was a trap. Constant misconceptions of what truly meant to be an adult. The amount of responsibilities, life-changing decisions and uncertainties is far from what I had ever expected.

I say we were all lied to as children. Sugar-coating started with our parents.

೧. ‘ಒಗ್ಗರಣೆ’ಯ ಪ್ರಕಾಶ ಮತ್ತು ಪರಿಮಳ (ಆರ್.ಕೇಶವಮೂರ್ತಿ)

Oggarane7

ಅಡುಗೆಮನೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಅಮ್ಮ ಹಾಕುವ ಒಗ್ಗರಣೆಯ ರುಚಿಗಿಂತಲೂ ಒಮ್ಮೊಮ್ಮೆ ಅದರ ಶಬ್ದವೇ ಅದ್ಭುತವಾಗಿರುತ್ತದೆ. ಸಾರಿಗೆ ಅದರ ಘಾಟು ತಟ್ಟಿದ ಮೇಲೆ ಅದನ್ನು ಕಲಕದೆ ಮೇಲಿನ ತಿಳಿಯನ್ನಷ್ಟೇ ನಾಲಿಗೆಗೆ ಸವರಿಕೊಂಡರೆ ಅದರ ರುಚಿಯೇ ಬೇರೆ. ರುಚಿ ಮಾತ್ರವಲ್ಲ, ನೋಡುತ್ತಿದ್ದಂತೆ ಬಾಯಿ ಚಪ್ಪರಿಸುತ್ತೇವೆ. ಒಗ್ಗರಣೆಯ ಮಹಿಮೆಯೇ ಅಂಥದ್ದು. ಅಡುಗೆ ಮನೆ ಯಾವುದೇ ಆಗಿರಲಿ, ಅಡುಗೆ ಭಟ್ಟ ಯಾರೇ ಆಗಿರಲಿ ಒಗ್ಗರಣೆ ಶಬ್ದ, ಅದರ ರುಚಿ, ಬಣ್ಣ ಒಮ್ಮೆ ನೋಡಿ ಸವಿಯಬೇಕು ಅನಿಸುತ್ತದೆ. ಇಂಥ ಅಪರೂಪದ ಒಗ್ಗರಣೆಯ ಘಮದಿಂದ ನೀವು ದೂರವಾಗಿದ್ದರೆ ಒಮ್ಮೆ ‘ರೈ’ ಕೆಫೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಸಿದ್ಧವಾಗಿರುವ ‘ಒಗ್ಗರಣೆ’ಯನ್ನು ಸವಿಯಿರಿ. ಕೇವಲ ನೋಟಕ್ಕೆ ಮಾತ್ರವಲ್ಲ, ನಿಮ್ಮ ಮನಸ್ಸಿನ ರುಚಿಗೂ ಈ ‘ಒಗ್ಗರಣೆ’ ದಕ್ಕುತ್ತದೆ.

‘ಸಿನಿಮಾವೇ ನನ್ನ ಕನಸು, ನಾನೇ ನನ್ನ ಜಗತ್ತು’ ಎಂದುಕೊಳ್ಳುವ ಪ್ರಕಾಶ್ ರೈ ಅವರ ನಿರ್ದೇಶನ ಅಲ್ಲಲ್ಲ, ಪಾಕಶಾಲೆಯಿಂದ ಮೂಡಿಬಂದಿರುವ ‘ಒಗ್ಗರಣೆ’ ಚಿತ್ರಕ್ಕೆ ಪ್ರೇಕ್ಷನನ್ನು…

Fictional Intruder


Fictional Intruder.

Go down the rabbit hole with Alice; play quidditch with Harry Potter; float down the river with Huck Finn… If you could choose three fictional events or adventures to experience yourself, what would they be?

One story which has always motivated to believe in six impossible things before breakfast was Alice In Wonderland.

The movie by Tim Burton has had its imprint on my Mind more than the actual story which I read during my early years of schooling.

The main reason why I loved this movie was the way Alice learns new things in a maze and then again comes back to reality learning how to apply those lessons in real life.

I would really wish one day I disappear into some rabbit hole and explore the other side of this vast beautiful world.

I dont care whether the world is good bad or ugly… All I need is to explore the unexplored… See the world which nobody has ever attempted to see before… To feel the things which nobody has ever felt before….

I would be glad if I would fall down deep under the rabbit fall only to emerge out as a more matured person enough to understand this complex world. How nice would it be to meet some of the amazing creatures and amazing human beings like the Mad Hatter and the horrendous red queen…

How much more interesting would it be to fit into different sizes and different places … The adaptability, the curiosity, the knowledge, the expereince of having entered a world which is entirely different from the conventional world… Wow…

Life is indeed beautiful if things really went like this. But unfortunately fairy tales seem so tempting that we often forget that we have to finally live in Reality and not some fantasy land….

Is there something you’ve always wanted to do, but never got around to starting (an activity, a hobby, or anything else, really)? Tell us about it — and tell us about what’s keeping you from doing it.

I always wanted to be a dancer and a singer.

But what went ahead stopping me from becoming what i wanted to be was my “FEAR”

Fear of what may be the reaction of people when they see an idiot like me dancing…

Fear of what if people will laugh about my silly voice…

Fear of peers teasing …

Uff… endless fears…

Then I read this line by Marianne Williamson

Indeed our fears prevent us all the times from achieving the fullest of our own potential. The best remedy for this is to get out of that couch and start learning something new… I attempted the same and i participated in a flash mob held in our own Company.

Though i danced like an idiot it made me feel so proud that atleast i tried. Its better to have tried than not to have tried at all.
