Not(e) in the mood- 10

This post is inspired from a moment I had at a basketball game recently. Here’s to the players and to all the others who loves playing any game for that matter!

A good basketball game can have us all on the edge of our seats. Actually any game for that matter. Games are about the glory, that moment when you score that win after the struggle,the pain, and the play-by-play. And then, there are the more solitary games. The games we each play all by ourselves. The social games, the mind games, we use them to pass the time. To make life more interesting. To distract us, from what’s really going on. There are those of us who love to play games. Any game.

And, there are those of us who love to play,  a little too much.

However, life is not a spectator sport. Win, lose or draw, the game is in progress at all times, whether we want it to be, or not. So, go ahead, argue with the referees(whoever or whatever they might be), change the rules, cheat a little, take a break( that time out to pause a little) and tend to your wounds. But play. Play. Play hard. Play fast. Play loose and free. Play as if there’s no tomorrow.

Okay, so it’s not whether you win or lose. It’s how you play the game. Right? 😉



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
