Life is Beautiful!

Posted in Writing's on the Wall on March 30, 2010 by Sunil Anand


Now it’s been one heck of a long break since I penned any thoughts! Well, was pretty stuck up with life, running, walking (literally), and catching up with things, still at it, *phew!! One fine day(s) you realize that TIME (reminds me of Anthrax’s – Persistence of Time :D) has gone behind you – missing out on all the good things like .. you know.., etc., etc.,

Man, is life good, heck yeah it is… all the $#!t that happens is all part of it… things keep happening, guess we should not let those bog us down! The other day I was catching up with some of my very old friends (we been through some pretty interesting stuff I should say) and we realized that we have come a long way—some 13 years or so.. talking of the good old days (now we ARE F#@$in old :P), of all the fights, deaths, breakups, marriages, craziness, and what not.. most of us did end up surviving successfully hahahahaha.. bloody nice!

One thing I kind of realized over the time is that, all bad things come to an end (as against “all good things come to an end”) well may be a little late.  But they do come to end, and the good stuff are forever..! good stuff like your dreams, aspirations, hope, confidence, soul, creativity, mind (even if you go crazy :D), imagination, etc., they just stay with you and no one can take them away except ourselves! The so called “bad” stuff are no match, they come and go! May be pain is an exception, screw it 🙂

Otherwise, life is going on ppl, been reading quite some books, catching up some old music (Cynic, Voivod to name a couple) doing some IT consulting stuff (on the verge of something exciting there), full fledged push for DogmaTone Records and yeah as usual partying (that’s something that bloody never gives up on me even if I do)

Enjoy!!!!!!!

Plain & Simple

Posted in Writing's on the Wall on January 16, 2010 by Sunil Anand

We sometimes forget how plain and simple things are, and end up just complicating them. Well, there are several reasons behind that- primarily being our own “self”, the ego, beliefs, the people around, experiences, etc., etc., and we end up just complicating things further n further. Not able to fathom that we are conspiring against ourselves.

Life is just so passé that everyone thinks that it is their own and everyday something new is cropping, whereas the irony is that we just ride along about the paths already trodden and which are so barren that anything new is just not acceptable. Forget acceptable it’s just plain dead.

And sometimes, things change (that’s what we think) and we are screwed headlong and end up trying to balance n to come in terms with these changes. That’s too pathetically funny and hilarious to say the least. See the way I am writing this $h!t, titled “Plain & Simple” in such a complicated manner- just shows how many nails are there in the proverbial, damned, left-to-rot coffin.

We can just go about living life the way it’s supposed to be lived. Yeah! goin with the flow believing in what we do, the decisions we make, without any regrets, forgiving n forgetting, enjoying, being happy & sometimes losing ourselves. Nothing bad in that eh? You are anyways goin to die in the end and most probably end up in hell for all you know or whoever the hell (irony!irony!everywhere) decides that.

Life IS an Oxymoron!

Posted in Writing's on the Wall on December 10, 2009 by Sunil Anand

Don’t YOU think so? Hell, looks like my topics to write come up only through conversations, as is this one…!

Yeah, I do believe that Life is just another oxymoron- its good & bad, twisted & smooth, bitter & sweet, soft & hard, sad & happy etc., etc.,  one thing’s for sure though (considering my regular conclusion) – we are all morons! 😛

Well, was listening to the band Children of Bodom and was talking to a friend when this topic came up.. and yeah, COB! after a long time listening to them was one good feeling. The band’s name by the way is inspired by a river named – “Bodom” where some children died under mysterious circumstances- and well these guys pretty unabashedly fronted by Mr. Alexi- do create a very tight aura of blasting guitars, bloody blackened and commercial at that. “Angels Don’t Kill” – listen to it! Just because I was listening to it when I am typing this !haha”hail metal forever”haha!

So, if life’s an oxymoron- what’s death? No clue..! mebbe something more simple than life eh? Anyways.. it’s good that this ‘oxymoron’ is quite funny most of the times, depends on how one looks at it though.. as an oxymoron, is something to be laughed at or is something a little non-straightforward.. so is life- so we should just let it be and not fret much about it… I Think!

Now Go Listen To Some Metal!

Rapture in Chains

Posted in Fiction: The Truth inside the Lie! on November 16, 2009 by Sunil Anand

Overjoyed, they fly & soar, slowly disappearing into the dark light…

Leaving when heaving, going away, walking away…

There’s no way to stop them… Free at last…?

 

Somebody stop it…. them..?

Lying rusted, under the violet moon… or is it the violent moon?

“Raise your hands, and your glasses too, we will dance the whole night through…”

Why? Who are you?

Can you hear the music? Can you bear the music?

Everything ends, burns, vanishes, falls…

 

“…we both know what memories bring! They bring diamonds and rust.”

You can’t but look away… and neither can you look in…

See them start a riot, spinning into a tornado. RIOTING!!

Unbeknownst… slowly we rot

Blessed, Yes! Blessed are the SICKK!!

 

Oh Ye, Death where the fuck is your sting… eh?

Meaningless Movements! Sucking into the void of silence…

Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? There is a dark tunnel for sure.

 

Fly away! Scarred, Beaten, Pierced, Blistered

Barren, Scared and Ignorant

Rest, Rest, Rest, Rest, Rest, Rest, Rest

REST IN PIECE!!!!

Addicted To The AdHoc?

Posted in Writing's on the Wall on November 4, 2009 by Sunil Anand

ATTA!Hmn ya ya ya.. am in one twisted and cool condition these days…!!! God bless the whole damned world! Reminds me of the 2012 movie trailer… “No Matter What Your Religion Is, No Matter What You Believe In, In The End Everyone Has To Come Together”.. something like that… looks like its gonna be a pretty entertaining disaster movie clocking at 158 minutes…  n releasing at an apt date of 13 Nov, basically the time of my birthday- as the tradition goes – Booze, New Movie and Dinner \\m//

Now coming to the topic aforementioned, which again is the conspired result of a discussion by two overlords of literature- for betterment of the global literary consortium of individuals affected by writer’s block.. (that’s what happens when unblocked!)- well, i have this tendency of opting for the unexpected, impromptu, adhoc, unplanned, etc., etc., donno why, but just probably that it gives me the kicks i guess..

Talking about things unplanned… couldn’t resist the excerpt below from The Dark Knight

The Joker: I just did what I do best. I took your little plan and I turned it on itself. Look what I did to this city with a few drums of gas and a couple of bullets. Hmmm? You know… You know what I’ve noticed? Nobody panics when things go “according to plan.” Even if the plan is horrifying! ………
The Joker: Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I’m an agent of chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos? It’s fair!

Yes, almost all of my decisions have been unplanned, or rather it just so happened I didn’t go according to the plan.. things might have been different or otherwise, decisions would have been either right or wrong.. only thing is that I don’t have any regrets!

Anyways, whatever we plan there is no surety that it will work out, there’s always the uncertainity of everything getting screwed up ALWAYS.. just that we have to be lucky sometime.. basically everything F&%$*#@ depends on fate i guess..  so why plan, expect, at all eh? things gonna happen anyways!

All hail!

Angry Again!!

Posted in Writing's on the Wall on September 12, 2009 by Sunil Anand

AA

Anger!! Aaaah!!

“Enraged my mind starts to smoke, Enforce a mental overload, Angry again, angry again, angry”- Dave Mustaine; Its always nice to think of this feeling, characteristic, or whatever of a downer or a high it is… We do get angry sometimes, angry at someone, angry with ourselves, angry with the circumstances, angry with life, angry at people, and even angry at everything… its not always controllable and should say is one mind twister, come to think of it.

Just wanted to pen down some anger statements, that I would have felt or would have come up with, so here goes…

I am so angry –

I can fight the devil himself

I want to see everything and everybody burn

I wanna kill and be killed

I wanna break something

…rather break someone’s bones, pull the bone out, and shove it through that someone’s throat!!

I can cry, wail, howl and scream

I can just forget everything

That everything is blurred and inexistent

There is nothing I can do, see, feel, touch and hear

Hahahahahaha, that was relieving!! The thing about anger is that you don’t realize its downside until you lose control over it and commit a mistake, like hurting someone… well, it does help sometimes to be angry- to get things done… and yeah always is good to vent out one’s anger in some way or the other rather than penting it up inside. It does bring the twisted, screwed up, evil, devil and all that bull$#!* outside.

As Mr. Jerry Cantrell echoes – “Anger rising up inside him yet again…Devil rising up inside him yet again”

Afraid of Not Dying, But of Not Living

Posted in Writing's on the Wall on September 1, 2009 by Sunil Anand

aondbonlTime is something classic and twisted n screwed up and what not…! Its been a while since I posted here, basically for lack of time and the frigging forever -patience!  Yeah, the past month or so has been pretty hectic(?), rough, and breakneck paced… hadn’t listened to much music, and yeah finished a book “SHE” by Rider Haggard- that too after over some 2-3 months… pretty interesting read though, of how anything evil can also be justified by love.. as long as the reason is the latter! (Friggin Fools all around I say.. P.S. Don’t know why  I said that, just wanted to say is all)

So, coming to the this dying & living thing, guess its always good to “live” life,  which we anyways do, probably without even knowing that we are not.. (heck who cares eh?) its just one big oxymoron, “afraid of not dying, but of not living” what was i even thinking, but yeah it was more of an impromptu statement that came up when i was chatting with another sole soul, who ended up suggesting i write something about it, and here i end up doing exactly that.

Fading / burning out / death is most probably the only end that everything will face.. so why bother. The only thing that matters is the ever effervescent, twisted, neck snapping, all crunching, problematic, confusing, screwed up etc., etc., – LIFE.. all depends on how its faced and lived and not the other way round. *%$#^#@ atypical of me stating the negative, yeah there’s a lot of good stuff  in life like friends, family, love etc., ..just that its end is a little unnerving.

Not to forget that “time” is the ruling / deciding f#$@&%@ factor here! That’s fine I guess, knowing both of them are in our hands, as in how we face them…
