Far in the south western part of India, there is a beautifully vibrant place called Kerala. An Indian state that is known for its picturesque green landscapes, calm and serene backwaters, cultural ambiguity, pious people, spicy delicious food, ample vegetation, heartwarming ambience, classical and traditional music, multitude of heart-racing celebrations, the natives – Malayalis and their devotionally alluring language, Malayalam.
It all started with a simple curiosity about how this widely celebrated tradition began. The tradition that makes us seek ways to make ourselves better every year. Most of us do it, or rather proclaim that we practice it for the slight tinge of happiness it gets you. And some of us, the pompous beings end up publicizing it in social network and to our friends and families with a slight hope that they would help keep that self-promise.
But in the end, do any of us actually “Stick with the plan”? (Think! Think! Think!)
Do you remember the feeling that you felt when you kept pushing off what you really truly wanted to do for yourself and later kept reflecting about it?
Do you remember that instance when you understood and said to yourself, “This is what I want to do!!” and had that glint of determination in your eyes to do it?
Do you remember that amazement, that contempt, that pride, that euphoria that you experienced when you did what you wanted to do for ages and then you had this beautiful wide smile on your face?
Well, if you do, then you may be able to relate to whatever thoughts that I have put together here.
“Change is inevitable.“
Gosh, I have heard it a thousand times from different people in different situations. But still the question of “Why?” ponders in my head.
Well, if you ask me, change is nature and nature is change. That is all the philosophical bit I can come up about it.
In a perspective of a young individual about to step up into the so-called “Fast moving world”, I feel that change is something that happens around us. All that we do is adjust to its development and grow with it. Just like a creeper, that creeps along the hold it has. No matter where it is directed to. Twenty-one years it took for me to discover the changeable attributes in me. And in that time span I have been so used to them that, changing them seems to be more like inevitable rather than becoming the change.
