Life & Music

I was in my room, listening English songs loudly on my Intex speakers. Uncle entered in my room. We both smiled. Song was so damn good that I couldn’t help myself to turn it off.

“Do you understand all the English lyrics??” he asked.

“Well, not all, but almost…” I replied with smile.

“You don’t understand it fully, then it’s useless to listen” he shook his head in disgust.

“Well uncle, Do you understand life fully?” I asked.

He gave thoughtful expression. And then said, “No, not fully, but…”

“Then should we live life??” I asked and observed his rolling eyeballs here and there and I said, “…Or should we commit suicide because we don’t fully understand life!!?”

His tongue got paralyzed to utter.

“Uncle, I don’t understand fully lyrics, but I am fully enjoying music… likewise same goes for life. Just enjoy the life. Life will introduce itself through the different circumstances.” I said.

He hummed in agreed tone.

“Uncle, enjoy the life… and let’s enjoy the music…” I laughed to break his serious facial expression into joy. And then I held his both hands and our body went with rhythms. That’s brought wide smile on his face.

Perspective – Micro-tales

number-6

Two guys were sitting on chair face to face. There was “6” number board between them.
One guy said, “Why a number ‘6’ board is here?”
Another guy said, “No, it’s a number ‘9’ board… YOU FOOL”
First guy stubbornly said, “No… YOU FOOL. It’s a number ‘6’ can’t you see it clearly!”
Another one angrily said, “How dare you to call me that you asshole. It’s a number ‘9’. YOU UNEDUCATED BLIND FUCKER”
First one got pumped up in fury. He clenched his fist and crushed his jaw, ready to knock him down on the floor. As he got up with fluttering red nostrils.
Suddenly, third guy came up and said, “Hey dude, just calm down. Take a deep breath and relax man…” He calmed him down and looked at that number board and said to both, “Why don’t you guys get up from your chairs and exchange your position!”

After all, It’s all about perspective. Sometimes in life we should look through our opponent’s perspective to understand him/her. Most of times problems solves.
