how 2 choose




"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I am taking the one less traveled
By, and hope that makes the difference".


leaving the exceptional minority of those VERY-HIGHLY-EXTRAORDINARILY-INTELLIGENT geeks........who know answers to almost every littl-est question that pops up in their wide untiring setup of neurons...(brain seems a small word)...almost each one of us, spend thousand minutes out of the total 1440 (thank god!! calculators exist)...in a day working out in taking the right decision..or choosing one-out-of two ways.....the two situations that come across us can be well seen as the two roads one of which leads u to the destination and the other one....naaa....nothing has ever been said been about that wrong path...so, in short there are two paths...RIGHT and WRONG..Out of which we are expected to choose the right...but it is not as simple as it seems...

When we jump in situations like this...we observe that their is nothing such as right...or...wrong...both the paths seem equally right and fruitful...alrite!! I do admit that one might give you more and maybe in a lesser time...but then how are you supposed to know that until you have already walked the path yourself....

Let’s see a few of my own personal incidents which have you-can-say...forced me to pen this post down...

Once in class ii, I went out to an official dinner with daddy...one of the dad's office pal offered me two chocolates...both of which seemed equally delicious, chocolaty and yum!!...now can sumone tell me what was the right and wrong in any of the chocolate??
And so can anyone guess what my decision was...which one did I choose??...na na don’t bother to run ur brains now...I’ll tell you...I CHOSE NONE...yup!! "...none"...it didn't seem such a hard decision back then...as I was always lectured that "DO NOT TAKE ANYTHING FROM THE STRANGERS"...and 'THE UNCLE' though my dad's friend was a complete stranger for me ...I had heard his name for the first time just a few minutes ago...

Then there were times I had to choose between black and blue...or between a wrangler and a spyker....

Once when the decision seemed simpler was choosing between ballerinas and oshos...an I picked osho's ...as they were the ones that suited my (not-to-mention) little pocket money...

And so the list goes on...and...On...and...On...may be forever....

but now I am(with my fun-school-days over)....standing in between another crossroads of my life...two roads in front of me...both look HARD, TOUGH AND ENDLESS...!!
One wrong step and the destiny takes me to a totally different world....
With this confused state of my mind...and no clues as to where am I heading...I have just one last question...from the law-makers...

If it is so often that we stand at a divergence, then why are the rules "to choose" the right UNDEFINED???

Yes Niccku, this post completely my state of mind at the time being. It is very difficult to choose at times. Small decsions are OK, they don't have a consequential effect. But those decisions that change the course of your life, have to be taken with utmost care. Afterall, it may be impossible to return!

Dont kill me if the comment gets too long but dude i really really have to say all this since these are precisely the lines i have been thinking on for quite some time now. Now for your question--

Beep..you know, i think there is no wrong decision. No road less travelled. Or at least no less travelled road that you had an option of taking.
Every small or big decision that we take, is for a greater good of our own self. There is no good or bad, thinking makes it so. Everyone i know thinks I not going for MBBS was a wrong decision. To hell with right or wrong. That wasnt something i wanted to do. I think life is too short and its stupid letting something, you always wanted, pass you by just because you couldnt decide whether it was for good or bad.

Why not take risks, do something you "want" to do instead of doing what is right. And hello, who decides the rights and the wrongs?? I decide MY OWN rights and wrongs. I'll rather do what I have always wanted to than go with the flow or take the tried and tested path. I'll rather take decisions for my own self than let others do the same (or even influence my decisions). At least i'll have someone(ME) to blame when things dont go as planned..and i wont regret anything that i did.(Other than may be not doing eng hons from DU..i have a felling i'll regret it but not a problem..will do this one last thing for the people who brought me in this world.)

huh
sorry for the incoherent gibberish. I was essentially blabbering and very loosely related to your post. Should post it as a blog on my page.

By the way, about your I-am-super-smart-and-witty act of not taking the chocolate...girl you were born stupid. You cant help it. I would have taken both. Duh.

"who know answers to almost every littl-est question that pops up in their wide untiring setup of neurons..." absolutely fantabulous....kudos

nisarg said...

nikku u r one lucky girl coz i'm writing this response again....u know i wrot a full gyaan patra and the connection timed out...so here i go again....
As i have already told u the first and always corect way to choose is...do as u please..."mujhe jo sahi lagta hai...."..remember???
Another thing that makes decision making tough or shall i say tough decisions difficult to make is our unending love and affection for Regretting. so another tip...never ever Regret anything....moving on if we dont regret then there wudnt be ifs and buts and we'll be happy with wherever we are..as u must know..."if ifs and Ands were pots and pans ..ther wud have been no tinkers..."...to samjhe beta...enjoy life as it is....And by now u must have known the last line.


And that the bottomline coz the great one said so.
