We are so strangely Wired !

We forget that losing is just as much a part of life. Perhaps not the most fun part of life, but part of it nonetheless. We forget that we have all seen the bumper sticker that reads “Shit Happens” and laughed thinking “well ain’t that the truth”. EVERYONE fails at something, at some time. Quite aware of the feelings & pains of disappointment, we never arm ourselves with tissues and bandages. What’s it inside in all of us that makes us think “Yes, I can do this” even in the most ridiculous situations. Where do this feeling of hope stays !

We are so strange !

We forget the simplest things. We forget that the easiest way to un-complicate life is to un-complicate wants. As long as we expect the least out of everyone and the most out of ourself, things work out smoothly. We don’t have to hold anyone else accountable then. It’s THAT simple.So, what makes us burden others with our own expectations? What makes us unload our wants on someone else? What makes us believe that things that others think we don’t deserve from them will fall in our laps?

Oh Yes! We are oh so strange.

Modern Day Story of Rabbit & Tortoise

Tortoise and Rabbit were good friends and used to work together every day. One of the days, the topic of the famous race between their ancestors came up. A discussion ensued and they argued whether “Slow and steady win the race” is still relevant. The rabbit was far too proud to assume that any tortoise can defeat him. The fight grew more and more till they decided that the only way to settle it is a race between them. It was also decided to invite as many audiences as possible to witness the race.

The race started on a circular race track. It was decided that there will be 5 laps. The audience preferred to sit near the finish point. The race started and as expected, the rabbit took a substantial lead of more than a lap at the beginning itself. He thought he should take a nap as he could defeat the tortoise whenever he wants to. He could not find any green grass so he started thinking. Just then he saw the tortoise walking slowly but steadily. An idea came to him and he climbed on top of the tortoise’s hard back. The tortoise, a diligent fellow, wasn’t even bothered with the additional weight, for he was already used to carrying so much load. At the last lap near the finish point, the audiences were cheering loudly. This broke the rabbit’s nap and he climbed down and finished the race way ahead of the tortoise.

After the award ceremony, he was asked by another rabbit, how he managed to do what his generations were never able to do. He replied as a matter of factly “I rode on someone else’s back”.

P.S. – Blog updated after a long time. I blame Twitter. Micro-blogging have spoiled my mind against Macro-Blogging 😀

P.P.S. – The credit to the plot of this story goes to a newspaper article pointing that in today’s world a rabbit win all the races.

Till Next Post 🙂
