Permanent Scars

‘Abhay, don’t be furious. She’s just a toddler.’

‘You’re turning exactly into your military dad! Why won’t you encourage the budding artist?’

‘She’s scribbled on newly painted walls?!!!’

‘When our landlord realises…’

‘No, he won’t, because we’ll erase it by then..’

‘Oh yeah?’

‘Yeah! You should, infact, be proud!’

‘Right! Those are permanent non-erasable markers!’



There is a deep and cosmological connection between my birth, my parent's decision to name me what they did, my profession and my education. This brings me to the conclusion that fate is predetermined and like in Hindu mythology, is written by Brahma when someone is born. Example: My name is unique. I did my grads in Psychology. I then did my masters in HR (offshoot of following all the psychos). I then did the ultimate decision of joining an MNC in ............. beat it, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT. So, I have the concept 'MAD' in my name, my education, my choice of career and all the milestone decisions of my life. Now, is it predetermined or what ? :-D
