§ ..Thoughts on nostalgia.. §



 
Fly away
     Time is often credited for flying away. How unique every nanosecond of our life is. And once it is spent it can never come back. Ever thought of reliving moments that have gone by never to come again. All that remains is the shadow of these events gone by. They cannot be relived in flesh and bone but yes they do can be recreated in the enormous expanse of our mind. How many times over and over again we have wished to be present at a particular event in the past. Man has always been fascinated by the concept of time travel. At the same instant there are memories which we mean to delete permanently from our conscious memory. There is a great boon of forgetfulness which helps us in the process. But they do haunt us. If we observe the fine raiment of nature's organisation we will be astounded at every step of it. Such a systematised order we live within. The shackles of material possession have always taunted us. But is wrong to indulge once in a while. To get carried away in the soothing river of our memories. The days of the forgotten past are triggered by some sub conscious event which reminds us of the past. 
             Yes I beseech you all to take a time out from your "hectic" schedules. Spare time for nostalgia, spare time for reminiscence. For the romantic mind its a trip away from reality.. to immerse in the sea of dreams and possibilities. Endeavouring for the mighty hopeful future. We build our future steps as a palace of cards, ready to tumble at the slightest of winds of doubt. But that doesn't stop us from dreaming. Such wonderful world it is myriad and full of infinite possibilities. Many of the greatest achievements were a result of dreams once considered sheer madness by the lay public devoid of imagination. But personally i believe in the dictum 'nothing is impossible'.. And i take it literally.. All you need is to dream and believe..

Thoughts on the Rosetta stone..

  A visit to a museum always is a pleasure for the history lover. Sadly this species is rapidly diminishing. The formerly prince of Wales museum, and now the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj MUseum, Mumbai, mad a long dream come true of mine. Jus loved the visit. Not highlighting all the artifacts. Will just write about the most exotic one.. The Rosetta Stone.. had been a dream of mine to see it. Having just read about it in the stories. Especially in the kane chronicles (fiction). by rick riordan. Just blew of my mind. The stone which gave the key to decipher the word meaning of the heiroglyphs. Mr.Champolion did the honors of deciphering a part of it. The Stone might seem a piece of granite for many. But for me it was much more than that. The way it enraptured me. The aura of mystery. The way it taunted all to challenge them to try and decipher the hidden meaning behind those intricate carvings. Just loved it man. Words won't ever describe how i feel at this moment. The stone found during the excavations of Napoleon Bonaparte. Just imagine it must have passed under the gaze of the little corporal. Nothing more to say. Spell bounded
