Let me start this post with some famous quotes, you know why??? Cos quotes add an extra butter to that dull, dry piece of bread i guess!!
Some famous being on this planet said these things:
A memory is what is left when something happens and does not completely unhappen. ~Edward de Bono
Every man’s memory is his private literature. ~Aldous Huxley
This one is of course one of my personal favourite 🙂 🙂
Well i guess that’s enough of “world famous quotes”…But the fact is i don’t know whether they are world famous or not but i would say they are famous in google though 😉
So what do we do when we want to capture a moment( of course happy one’s)??? Is that even a question!! Damn yes we take a snap!! And with all these smart gadgets coming up in the streets, this task has become an easier one than it was a decade ago!! I still remember the old days( Not that old though 😉 ) when i had to wait a week or so for the snaps to come up!!! Sometimes the wait was worth and sometimes depressing 🙁 do you know why?? Cos sometimes even the camera doesn’t obey his MASTER of the moment!!
Let’s see …hmmm.. hmmmm..
What if you fall in love with a smell( be it a perfume, or food or even the smell of wet earth) !!
Can you capture it?? Nope!!
What if fall in love with someone’s thinking !!
Can you capture it?? Nope!!
What if you fall in love with the cool, soothing, pleasant breeze!!
Can you capture it?? Nope!! But you can feel the breeze, touching your skin, blowing you hair off your beautiful face!!
What if you fall in love with a place??
Can you capture that?? Yes!! But only the beauty of the place not your love for the place!!
God has made the earth such a beautiful place to live in that every moment you tend to fall in love with something or someone!!! It’s not only you tend to fall but you do!!! Errr….Little modification!!! I do!
That’s why i guess GOD has impregnated our tiny little brain with a memory wardrobe!!
Well of course every single soul in this living planet wants to!! Oh!! no no no!! They try by all possible means that they remember only the happy memories!!
But what to say, this is all “Bhagwan ki maya”!!! If he has blessed us with such a wonderful gift, then there will be some nasty part to it!! Everything has!! After all it’s universal law!!
So guess that’s the way it is “designed” this way by the superior being(GOD)!!
And when i say memories, that means they are things that had already happened somewhere in the past..
If it’s a good one, it’s always treasured and remembered. Sometimes you feel as if could just turn back the time and freeze that very moment then and there!! But such things never happen in the real world…Well not even in the virtual world 🙂 🙂 (There’s an exception but and do you know what is that!! Dumbledore’s pensieves!!)
I guess that’s how a child learns and becomes a teenager-an adult- an older being!
And it is all because of this memory thing, we enjoy every moment of our life….Just imagine what if everything is new, happening for the first time!! My gawd! that’s so difficult to deal with! So difficult to survive in this world!! We would have been like those sci-fi “movie-zombies”!!
Let’s deal with the bitter truth!! It’s like the bitter yet sweet- dark chocolate!! What about “Bad memories” ??? Don’t you think it should take a backseat in our memory’s pandora box!!
But it’s kind of blessings in disguise!! These are the things that help us to learn, to move forward in life…And due to this particular thing we don’t repeat our mistakes!!
But there are certain things that all of us forget some or the other time!! You know why this happens??? I think may it’s just that we don’t pay much attention to certain things….Because we think they are either silly or we are just too busy to listen! 🙂
Memories are like an alive diary, walking all the way with us where ever we go!!
