Wake Up Or Your Life Will End!

The title of this blog is not as complicated as it may seem to be. You just need to understand what 'waking up' means and what 'end of life' means. Well no, waking up doesn't mean getting up from your bed every morning. Neither does end of life mean death.

By waking up, I mean opening your eyes which are placed in the mind. See the world not just as a place where you come, do your own thing and vanish some day. The world is not a hotel, where you pay some money, get room for some period of time, stay in that four-walled place doing whatever you want to do; being completely ignorant of people outside your room and after a while leave that place as if it was never yours.

Unlock the butterflies in your eyes, and see what kind of a place you live in, what the World outside your four-walled room offers. Life is not all about eating, sleeping, drinking, watching television, and satisfying your self. At night when sleep hasn't captured you as yet, you may be thinking how good you looked today or how will you spend the money your parents just gave to you, but some people at night are left thinking how would they feed their family the next day, or when will that day come when they will be able to consume 3 meals a day, or will they still be living under the same roof tomorrow?

Stop thinking how she/he would react when you'll propose her/him. Think how that kid would be feeling after you closed the window of your car, and how you ridiculed him, how you made fun of his life, his aspirations, his dreams. Think about the daily routine of that kid who you saw yesterday sitting in a corner on the roadside, begging.

Eating a full meal in the afternoon is as important to the underprivileged and under thought-about people as to you owning the latest mobile or the latest laptop or the latest IPod is.

If you cannot wake up to this world, then you have no right to see or hear or speak or...breathe. And you'll end your life as a blank page. Blank pages are uninteresting and unwanted, like the four-walled rooms.

And this is what the title means.


  1. it is really good. i like the emotive quality it has. the blog is very powerful as u have'nt used a lot of words (word count) to convey very philosophical thoughts.

  5. hi,hmmmmmmmmmmm..thoughful but not gripping. .. u have got a thinking sensitive brain but need to work on writing.......tell me wat books have you read..... wat have been ur experiences...i wud suggest u sum books which would may be help u in focussing and developing an idea.....

  6. You seem to be very sensitive to your surroundings.Your writings are thought provoking.

  7. To Mr. Subhash-->
    Thanx a lot for commenting. Thank you for all the appreciation and encouragement. Are you on orkut..because that way i'll be able to inform you about new posts on my blog..?

  8. hi, ur have a gd stream of thought.... but it doesnt seem to flow naturally,,, it has to be more focussed.....not that going in this direction and then goes in another direction.may be u need to read more and expereince more...

    they say writing is the best way to understand urself. it is a cathartic experience...u r doing it but u need to go higher and eeper, the imagery, the symbolism have to be more telling, intense gripping...

    have u read "Sidhartha" by Herman Hesse? excellent book about existentialism.. that is what seems to be ur forte too...existentialism. ..explore it

  9. my god!i like the way u raise social issues philosophically.....
    u always begin with philosophy nd end with hard hitting questions of core issues........

  10. Thought provoking post! Its about striking a balance in life and making a conscious effort to help the needful.

    You have beautifully summed it up. Its not about how wealthy you are when you leave this world;its whether you have made atleast a small difference to the life of another person in need.

    I simply loved this post. Keep writing more
