Burning Emotions…

Posted in Stories. on May 28, 2009 by Dev!l

He read the line again,

“I love you a lot, always have and always will. I will spend all my life at your every whim and will try my best never to hurt you…”

It had been more than half an hour and he still was stuck on the same line. It wasn’t like he was mentally slow or the line was written so eloquently that one would be so mesmerized by it that one loses all track of all time. It was just one of those lines which contained a lot of memories. Do you have one of those words or lines to which your memory has associated a whole memory to? If so; then maybe now you would realize that why he was stuck on that line.

“Tun tun”, the air of nostalgia was finally broken by the noise of the old grandfather clock striking four.

“Huh? It’s been this long already?” he smiled at himself thinking how long it had been. Reflecting upon his past life, in this half an hour, he had come across the same conclusion he had reached a few years back. It was a conclusion, to which, back then he never paid much attention to, but now after so much time had passed away making him a more experienced and a mature person, he knew his past conclusions, those he had chose to ignore at that time, were not wrong. He now loathed how in his youthful enthusiasm, he had chosen to ignore something that might have saved him from getting broken, something that would have made him more stronger to face this world, something which could had been the first brick in his Utopia… but it was too late now, he was broken beyond any repair now.

Yes, I know that “broken beyond repair” makes him sound like a machine or a robot, but in actuality this is how we live now a day. We hurt people by our acts and we break their hearts, we treat them like they aren’t made of flesh and blood but are made of metal. We are like that small child, who plays with his toy car just for his amusement but eventually while getting his amusement he breaks the car into tiny pieces and starts searching for a new way to amuse himself. The only difference in that kid and us is that we are actually capable of differentiating between metal and flesh…

Smiling, he turned the pages until he reached a blank page. Ironically, it was the last page. His smile widened and his eyes showed a tinge of sparkle, “how perfect. A befitting end to my past…” The dull, emotional and lost boy, who had opened his diary for a solution to his predicament, was now replaced by a strong and committed man who knew what he must do to survive. Committed to what? Well, that will be explained in due time…

He picked up a pen and wrote a few lines on that page. After finishing, he broke the nib of his pen on the page like an old judge passing the verdict on some criminal and started ransacking his cabinet for something. Soon, he found what he was searching for… a bottle of lighter fluid. Needless to say what he did after that but if you really must know, he closed his old diary and set it to fire and as he watched the fire scorch away all his life’s worst experiences and all the lies told to him, only one thing was going through his mind, the one lesson he had failed to learn before… The one lesson time and life taught him… unfortunately the hard way… the one lesson that was the gist of his life experiences and hardships… the one lesson, he had scribbled in his diary before burning it.

“Nothing in this world is permanent and no matter what you loose life will continue, it always has and it always will. Always logically analyze what others say as to be able to distinguish between the truth and the lies…

All my life what I thought would be my Avalon… would be the scarab that would protect me and make me immortal turned out to be nothing more than a fool’s paradise… All my life I may have loved beyond belief and never stopped to listen to logic… only to have reached one conclusion,

‘Love is for the weak minded.’ Dreams and emotions may be a gift of God but they also are a curse … learn to be their master and not let them be yours…”

Just another senseless rant…

Posted in Articles, Rants on May 10, 2009 by Dev!l

“I was at an expo and there was this board on which it was written ‘Write one positive point about Pakistan’ it was the end of the expo and the board was still clear…” My friend finished and I couldn’t help cracking a smile… It was another Saturday night and I was talking to my friends. One of my friends, being truthful and honest said, “That is not funny, it is really shameful.” At that exact moment that sentence really penetrated deep into my conscious. Are we truly that callous that we laugh at others misfortune? If something wasn’t related to us directly then it was entertainment for us? I did a little research and the sad answer was… Yes, to us everyone else’s misfortune is another excuse to laugh our hearts out, or sometimes just get amusement out of it. Now, before you start your rant on how you “FEEL” for others and how you try to help everyone in need, read my rant first so you can actually know on what basis do I base these conclusions.

Experiment 1

An everyday experiment, someone is descending from a flight of stairs, he slips and falls with his butt kissing two or three steps in rapid succession.

Results

Almost more than the half people who don’t know him, start laughing. The other half gather around him to watch the show. Only two or three people rush to see if that person is ok.

Experiment 2

A car accident occurs, people in their cars actually slow down to watch the show…

Results

Traffic jam, People gathering to see the injured, only a few helping the others watching the freaking show like its reality TV, LIVE! Then there are those who are actually helping, some of those low life actually don’t care about the human suffering their fellow is feeling but are just there pick pocketing the injured! Good going, jerks! How can you actually live with yourself is beyond me…

Experiment 3

A natural disaster strikes at some… no any place…

Results

TV crews gather there to film the event rather than helping the poor souls trapped in this calamity. Now, I know those idiots are doing there job but the last time I checked wasn’t human life placed above money? At least that’s how people with actual moral SENSE rate things… Then there are those IDIOTIC TV new casters who sit at their desks asking dumb questions over and over again just to watch their ratings increase. We get it a hurricane/flood struck, we get it that people got injured now stop pressuring your freaking reporters to keep asking the police/rescue squads stupid questions so they can I don’t know maybe save some HUMAN LIFES? Then there are those who actually open some NGO and actually rip those people off who want to HELP their distressed brothers and sisters…

Experiment 4

Forwarded this message to many people

“Obama and Bush were sitting in a bar. A guy approached them and asked, “Hey fellows what are you doing?”

Bush replied, “We are planning to kill a million Muslims and a beautiful girl in one strike.”

The guy got confused and asked, “Why the beautiful girl?”

At hearing this Obama turned to Bush and said, “Told you we could get away with killing a million Muslims.”

Result

More than 80 percent thought the same thing, Why the beautiful girl? Are we so wound up with what is happening around us that killing a million Muslims is something common? Or have we just accepted that as long as they don’t kill us nothing else matters, but the girl? Yes she matters. Why and How? Wasn’t the phrase, “For the needs of many the needs of the few should be sacrificed?” or am I just in a different space time continual?

Experiment 5

That expo example at the start

Result

My friend was right, we should be ashamed. This country provides us with safety, with dignity… with freedom and above all with honor. It is we who don’t have any positive points left in us not the country. It is we who made this country what it is today. It is we who are gnawing on the roots of this country’s economy just to satisfy our gluttony. It is we who put the people in charge at their places! So, how can we say that this country is negative? Are we just so freaking blind that nothing matters to us?

These are only some of the experiments, observe all around you and you will see many more. We are turning more and more unfeeling day by day. Each day we grow more EVIL! We take pleasure in hurting others for our own selfish gains. Now I am not saying everyone is like that. There are those who still feel sometimes. But how do we treat those people? We crush them with our bare hands. We probe at their sweetness until there is nothing left in them, in short we suck the life right out of them. We teach them that to survive in this world, you should rather eat or be eaten… I am sorry, but the last time I checked we were a civilized society, not some barbarians. Heck even those effing barbarians helped their comrades in need. So, what are we? Humans? Not in my books we aren’t. No matter how we justify it, we are worse than anything known to this planet.
