Go, Meet The World!

They say you need to recollect and relive your good times when you are going through a bad phase. Being me, was always so easy for me, it always bordered sleepwalking. But today as I stand here, I just got the feeling that this guy, who is self inspired, who loves to inspire others to stand up to anything that comes up, didn’t stored any for himself. I still remember, how a few friends of mine, still look up to me, they say that they have this belief that I can make things look simple and easy. Some say, my smile diminishes half of their problems. But then, it’s not always easy to inspire yourself. To talk happiness to every person you meet. To make all your friends feel that there is something in them. To wear a cheerful countenance at all time as and give every living creature you meet a smile.

Standing at this state of affairs, where the heart says I should and the mind says I should not; I actually never thought I have to self motivate myself someday. As they say, one should always remember where they originate from; almost certainly I should go back to where I began.

I remember my debut. I was so damn nervous. Not talking to anyone, I just went in. And I remember, someone told me, “go in boy, and don’t make eye contact to anyone in the audience, if you feel nervous just look at us”. That was the beginning. And during the next few years, that same me, used to tell his fellow musicians, “go in there, have fun, don’t look anywhere, if you feel nervous just look at me”. 

As a musician, I know, it’s not easy to go in and give your best every time. We know our strengths and we know our flaws. But we can always improve and deliver. All we need to do is enjoy and create memories.  Today it’s our turn to go in because we are the chosen ones to do so. Let us not think too much, not over analyze, not over react, not act overtly responsible! Let’s not anyone take away this moment from us, let’s go into our own musical world where we are celebrated, slowly, savouring each moment.

Holding onto my pair of drumsticks, trying to gather all my strength, my experience, my memories and all the fun I had, this is me! Going in for the one last time! To the chanting crowd, to the cheers, to the rhythm and to the Music!

May be we dont have that magical smile u do to inspire u enough...but we are there still smiling..n trying to inspire u to let your hard phase sail through ..all u need to do is look out for us n smile along.. :)

Your piece of writing has beautifully spoken a volume of your state of mind...but i wish the next piece would be more happy one..

until then... “go in there, have fun, don’t look anywhere, if you feel nervous just look at me”.

what a beautiful piece u have written! u said everything yet you said nothing! those who knows you will be able to connect with it at a personal level like the lady above me did so will be the rest of the world in different ways in context to their own state of mind. but surely we will all connect.

when someone can write such a good piece at a difficult stage in life wonder why he/she needs motivation!!! but all i would like to say that "go, meet the world and do not forget to grab your drumsticks before going and yes,if you feel nervous just look at us, we all are smiling :)"

For a person like me, whn low n shattered, it's hard to make d pen & paper meet to pull out the feeling from the core of the heart n mind. Instead I try to make fun of self so that by looking at other's smile I get some relief.

But, hats off to u brother. If that night was your last night in the drums, then I know, how it feels to live one's passion for the one last time....

Yes Dada, we have to take chances to make mistakes while we grow..

We always ROCK & we WILL...
