Pondering over..

Thoughts were racing in the mind after the meeting at the office, matching the pace with which I was walking on the railway platform. After reaching the place on the platform where the boggey on which I had to board halts, there was a couple standing, holding a very cute baby.. Due to what ever reason the baby was troubled , it kept crying in its shrill voice continuously.. the parents tried their bit to calm the baby but to no rescue..

With the storm of thoughts in my head, I sincerely wished that the couple dosen't land in the compartment I had to travel. But not to wonder, as mentioned in my previous blog, the crying baby and the family had to sit in the same compartment that i was travellig in :) To add fuel to the fire , there was another family with a crying baby almost the same age as this one, sitting in the next compartment but his Dada was sitting along with us, so the father kept bringing the child to his dada..And turn by turn both the kids kept crying.. :)
After some initial moments of irritation ( may be few hours :) ). I had to let go of thinking to restrospect the day at office and be a part of the flow.

If one has to enjoy a moment, one has to be a part of the flow. Being an observer simply would never let one enjoy the events. So then I decide to put aside all the thoughts and the book that I was wanting to read during the journey and enjoy the moment.
What made me wonder was, like child whose language was difficult to understand as they cry to make their parents or others understand its wants.. so also to us .. the language of emotions is so difficult to understand and more difficult is to give voice to the emotions exactly as they are felt within . How easy it is to misinterpret those and because we couldnt understand what was meant to be conveyed we misjudge, spank , under rate others..

Every business works around emotions.. how easy would the life be if we try to master that art.. !!

To cut the story short.. The next morning was calm as both the troubled kids were fine, fresh and happy to play with us... :) and journey ended peacefully.. All's well that ends well :) What say ??

Agree fully with you on the point, "the language of emotions is so difficult to understand and more difficult is to give voice to the emotions exactly as they are felt within" ...
Also there are person who never feels some kind of emotions .. I also wonder on it .. How those people are not able to feel some emotions.. I have seen many people who never feel like crying ... And I wonder on it .. How is this person able to manage with it ...

First thing i would like to say that i like the below line..."If one has to enjoy a moment, one has to be a part of the flow."...i just want to add one thing..apply this everywhere you will enjoy the life fullest...:)
So here is the topic of emotions...little disagree with the statement "how easy would the life be if we try to master that art..(understanding the emotions) !!".
I think its good that you are not able to express your emotions properly ...even also i can say that if it is misinterpreted and misjudged that makes our life very interesting...a very simple example i can give you here is that if that parents can understand the emotions of the child everytime..may be that child thinks that "kai maja nathi aavati...daddy ne badhi khabar padi jay che...!!!". Also i can say that it(this event) triggered you to write something on this topic...
its all about life...not necessary everything has to be perfect and understandable by everyone...
Not sure weather i can relate this to emotion... Invention or miracle happens when you misjudged or misunderstood something....but not every time :)

What I think is, firstly emotions and conscience create human nature. So you can't get a control of what creates you.

But there is always an exception, as Jaydip wonders how some people don't feel certain emotions..well that is because they control not to show that emotion to the external world..there's no living creature who can not feel certain emotion.

You can't master the art of emotions but to better understand them..kids are the best source..they do not have the help of words.. the emotions flow in the truest form

Did you abduct some aiens and are busy taking care of them and observing them in their cages?

Or is it the same old scenario of some aliens abducting you?

If its neither, its high time for new post.

And if its one of them, that would be the best topic to blog about ;)
