I had no plans to come in the city of Maya. A city of illusion. Beauty. Murders. Extortion. Money. Fame. Well, all of these and what not. This is an image of Mayanagari called Mumbai.
10 years ago, back in 2011, when I had come for the very first time in my life. I got attracted to this city. It was a dream come true to think if I could ever come here to work, to build my empire, when I’m done with my studies.
Coming from a town called Indore, which is again known as Mini-Mumbai, I got a chance to come here officially in 2017 when I was done with my MBA at the age of 21.
I had left everything behind, nothing was in my hand. Handful of dreams, a promise to work my ass off, and sacrifices to leave family behind, for bread and butter, for a better career.
Today when I see the journey, and connect the dots, I’m exactly standing where I should be. Not wanting to go really high that I may not take care of, and not falling down either.
I’m exactly where I should be now. I’m enjoying this journey of my life, where there are teachings, lows, ups, success, and failures too. But you know what, they all are a part of my journey.
If I only share my goodness, then I’d be doing injustice to my flaws which made me wise on my life. I’m grateful for the mistakes I’ve stumbled upon in life, which opened my eyes to the extend that now I can sense a pebble even before it is about to strive.
Tonight’s prompt gave me the opportunity to remember everything I started with. Let’s begin it from the scratch.
Life is a journey I had to get out of the house,
From having a peaceful sleep at home,
To sleeping all night on the couch.
It’s a journey which goes till eternity,
But I ended up loving this beautiful Mayanagari, called Mumbai City.
The train of life is going without an end,
It tries to teach me a lot, at times directly, other times with a little bend.
We should not get hyper and tried to look outside,
It’s the journey which goes within- pause, love yourself, and just enjoy the ride.
I left from home with empty-handed,
With nothing to choose,
I had no attraction toward making circles with cigarette, or to booze.
With my words, I’ll try and convey to teach,
That it doesn’t matter if you’re
with someone or alone,
you’re surely going to reach.
Just don’t only think about the plans, but enjoy the journey too,
For if you want to make it worth,
or regret forever,
It completely depends on you.
