"Hello World" goes the default heading of the first post. Gets me wondering…will my hello make a difference to the world? What makes you think the world's gonna sit up and take notice when I say hello? For one, I'm pretty sure the number of people reading this post would shrink into oblivion when compared with the number of people who don't even know it exists! Heck an average American would hesitate if you asked him where the Eiffel Tower is, before giving you "U.K" for a reply* ! Here we are talking about one ordinary post in one very ordinary blog, saying "Hello!" to the world!
Ok, by now you've probably assumed I'm either nuts or totally zonked in the head. Let me clarify. I'm both. Its the world that drives us all nuts. As for the zonked part, I couldn't come up with an option for the "either" clause in the previous sentence, so used it :P !! And why does the world drive us nuts?? The Aristotles and Socrateses couldn't answer that, so don't look for the answer here…For those who argue that the aforementioned gentlemen DID answer the question, I'm not a student of philosophy. Whats the point of having complicated, incomprehensible answers to simple questions, if a common man cannot understand them?!! And for those who argue that the world DOES NOT drive us nuts, here's my answer: if the world didn't drive us nuts, we wouldn't have had a Shakespeare writing a Hamlet, or the millions of students across the globe (literally) whose lives were made miserable by it…if the world didn't drive us nuts, we wouldn't have had a Devdas drinking his way to perdition, or the hundreds of cinema goers content with watching his sob story unfold, brought to life (err done to death??) by a very mediocre actor trying hard to convince he's actually sobbing…the list goes on.
So why this post?? And why so many questions?? What am I trying to say?? I happen to be at my cynical best/worst right now, and have nothing better to do than inaugrate my blog with this post:P. I agree this is just another attempt to be different, but isn't that what we all strive for?? The relentless pursuit to be different, to do things no one has done? To show others that we have done something they probably haven't? Only, little do we realize that they too have done things you haven't! They are different too! I guess the irony "Remember you are unique…just like everyone else" sums it up.
This post has probably driven you nuts by now. Ofcourse it will, and I have every right to feel proud if it indeed has. Because now I am part of this world too! And the world drives people nuts! If this post hasn't driven you nuts, then yo're probably nuts already!
