back to being clueless and showing it ;) !!

“The more you think about things, the weirder they seem. Take milk for example. Why do we drink COW milk? Who was the guy who first looked at a cow and said. “I think I’ll drink whatever comes out of these things when I squeeze ‘em!”
- Calvin
classic quote from a classic character!! But again,how many of us have ever stopped to think such seemingly ludicrous but fundamentally simple questions??Where in the freeway of life have we got the time to let the top down,shift into low gear and cruise, enjoying the soft rustle of the wind through your hair, as your lips humm a long forgotten tune of childhood from the deepest recesses of the memeory?? we all kno tat this is true and its wrong - but then again, what can we do about it?? though it may provide good fuel for rhetoric, isnt it true tat you dont slow down on a freeway, tat is unless u want to be crushed under the mammoth truck tat was breathing down ur neck just behind u! Though all of us talk about following ous dreams, putting heart over head and so many other cliches, how many of us have it in us to implement them??With a shrug and a sigh, we tend to take shelter under the convenient excuse-"its not practicable"! or maybe its not an excuse, tats the truth. We live in a world where conformity is the name of the game and we seem to be doing fine with that-if only for our instinctive nature to always feel tat the grass is greener on the other side.This brings us to the single question tat each of us have pondered on, over and over again, in different points of our life - does happiness coming from striving for ur dream or being contended with ur lot? But whatever we choose,(or the society makes us choose)the sad part is tat we might still wonder whether it was the right choice ;)
