The Choice

It is said that one's timing has to be deft,
while choosing among the options in sight,
for what is right may not be left,
and what is left may not be right...


until next time, maybe we dont have a choice at all.....

sometimes, I feel it would be better if we have no choice at all. I always get confused and feel what if this is the wrong choice?

Black and blue
And who knows which is which and who is who.

Up and down.
But in the end it’s only round and round....

Well said, Manu.
Quite a few of your pieces explore the idea of meaningful choice vs fate/destiny... drawing inspiration from personal experience ?
:)

manuscrypts said...

parna: thats a good one :)

ash: hmmm, not exactly... but yes, if we actually sit back and think about the decisions we have taken and the paths we have chosen, we wonder whether the choice itself was predestined ..

aqua said...

i think thats the conspiracy..that its made to look like we have choices but actually we dont. :)

What's right, might be the leftovers of a fact...and that's the truth, mostly. :) Take care friend.

manuscrypts said...

hey phatichar, i knew a serial by your name :), thx for dropping by..

austere: grr, not those lines..

manuscrypts said...

satchit: such a lot of times when because of a time constraint, we choose the wrong option .. btw, where have u been??

satchit said...

manu: just the usual 'work' thing. never thought i would ever have to use that as an excuse. but as they say - never say 'never'. :-)

phatichar said...

Well, my name is derived from that serial. I loved pankaj kapoor in that one and would imitate his 'chal phatichar, emotional mat ho...' line always; inspiring my friends to nickname me thus...

J said...

Finally!!!
Someone understands that figuring out wot's right n wot's left is so goddamn difficult! Can u explain this to my driver please? :D
