Pakistan's victory in the T20 world cup on Sunday was electrifying! It is worth learning a lesson or two on how they stood together in pulling off this win, despite a ravaging war torn situation at home! I was, in the rarest of moments, caught glued to the television screen unable to take my eyes off the spectacular Pakistani pull off at the Lords! But then, that was just the beginning!
A little after the match got over, I set out on a 10 kilometer long walk which took me a little more than an hour perhaps, during which time I was pondering over my current state of life which has suddenly been cast into an indeterminate state, devoid of much activity outside of the line of work!
I had not walked long distances for a long time now and the thought of doing a quick brisk one this time brought me to energetic speed, the like of which I hadn't witnessed anytime recently.
Walking gives one ample time and opportunity to introspect while the body itself is put to work on a very well defined course of action and all the mind needs to do is focus!
I found myself deep in thought, seeking a departure from the current state that I am part of, wanting to embark on a journey that helps me realize my passion, or for that matter, the many such longings that I cherish to do. Information seemed outpouring at mind boggling speeds and still making no sense at all! A lot to do, too little time, the call of the wild, no dreary routines and a fresh perspective and location!
End of the ride, I thought to myself, rather in question, if I had become impulsive or compulsive or both! Maybe plain critically analytical?
Sometimes, it is better to avoid deep thought, don't you agree?
