Heart of the matter



Tears! They are probably the worst thing that could happen to mankind…you have absolutely nooo control over them. In fact the more you want to ask them to behave themselves the more rebellious they get.

When a situation goes wrong or a wee bit unpleasant….extra food forced on you or someone yells at you, it’s the first reaction that forms on the inside….like all your other senses go into some sort of shut down mode, your intestines tug at your stomach and next thing the waterworks are on….

Its like there is one Voice inside you…the reasonable person that says…..Hey cmon yaar don’t be silly…what is there to cry??...ye to rone wala situation bhi nahi hai.But nahiii The Heart just doesn’t care to listen…It says… Oh yeah smarty?
Now the voice knows ki koi faida nahi…..this is a dimwit that it’s being pitched against.
So The Voice becomes a humble person…the next try is more mellow…..its no more scolding…a lot like…. understanding… and it says Chalo yaar leave it na….not a big deal…hota hai….take a deeeeep breath.But no….the heart won’t listen…..if anything, its more resilient than ever… makes a baby face, big sad eyes and tampers with the weak nerves saying…..Aww look at me no…me so hurtttt!! :(((((Now the voice becomes desperate…..all the hi-fi attitude goes away…. comes down on both knees and says…. Pleeease Pleeease don’t cry…..Pleeease don’t create a scene….Sab dekh rahe hai……and yet all this begging and pleading don’t do one good.

Next thing you know…your vision goes blur and there it is…..a long trail of salt water on your poor cheekoo face. As expected everyone gets awkward because of your stupid Heart and The Voice tells…..SEEEE I told you!!!!….Kar li na manmaani!......Loser!

I have a lot of questions on the subject….Are people who cry really weak??....Why can’t we be in control of the way we feel?.......How come guys don’t cry? Or cry so little?......Why do people cry at weddings? How come they are ok for all through the function but right at the time the girl leaves everyone just starts pouring in buckets together??? I mean are they so dumb that they never realized before the girl was going away… all of what was actually happening? In fact looking at everyone crying makes you feel so abnormal if you are not doing the same thing…..
That’s when The Voice says…..Ab to cry baba….thoda to bhi cry….looks so bad….sab ro rahe hai……Pleaseeee cry!! But The Heart says Nope nope…..mood nahi….Damn you!

Doing all the wrong things at the wrong time…..sooooo uncooperative……embarrassing you…..making you look like a bad person……all for which you are not even responsible in the first place…..But what can you do about it? Hello hello. Koi hai?
