Random thoughts

There are three kinds of people in this world:

Type I - These people can never understand the person within you.You'll be tired of explaining but their questions will never end. Rather than understanding why you behave in a particular manner, they'll question your behaviour and hence, you'll always end up playing a game of questions, answers and further questions. In short, these people know a lot, but understand nothing.

Type II - You'll explain and they'll understand.

Type III - They'll understand even before you'll start explaining, rather you won't really have to explain much.

The understanding and lack of understanding associated with these three kinds of people is usually independent of the amount of time you spend with them. At times, you tend to go blank with a person you might have known for years and sometimes a new person comes and fills in those blanks! Most of us would have come across at least one person of each type in our lives. I am mainly intrigued by Type I and Type III. I have met people who literally question things like why you like mountains and not sea, why you like sand and not snow, why you like whisky and not wine! On the other hand, some make me feel as if they understand me more than I understand myself and that too without bombarding me with questions. World is full of different kinds of people. We tend to get along with those who understand and accept these differences instead of questioning them. All the colours are different because they are supposed to be different. There is no reason for blue being blue and green being green. But then, some people don't look beyond colours to admire the beautiful picture they make. I have come across some such people too. While talking to them I sometimes doubt my abilities to explain and understand and sometimes end up here on blogger, writing posts inspired by those inconclusive conversations! I scribbled few lines while I was fiddling with these thoughts:

I don't know why sky is blue,
I don't know why grass is green,
I don't know why hills are beautiful,
I don't know why sea is serene,
I don't know why birds fly,
I don't know why flowers blossom,
I don't know why stars twinkle,
I don't know why rains are awesome,
All I know is,
I like the colour of sky,
I like to see birds fly,
I like the blossoming flowers,
I like the twinkling stars,
Some find me sweet, 
Some find me obscure,
Some like me less,
Some like me more,
Only if I could say,
And only if the world could see,
Beyond being liked, beyond being sweet,
I like being me!

  1. Very well written post Radhika, and the poem is great. Let us try to compose it into a song if possible :)

    1. Thanks a lot Sanjay Sir! Even I feel that now we should try some original compositions :-)
