On reserve fuel mode

Usually it would take exactly 3 months for me to start missing home, even while at college and amongst the best of friends. Somehow, going home and coming back gave a recharged feeling :) 

But this time around it has taken much longer, maybe because now I'm in an altogether new place.
Starting to feel a little homesick :)

The night time conversations

So lately I have been having quite a lot of interesting conversations with friends about life, friendship, family and such. On the one hand you realize how similar everybody's journeys are to begin with. But each one's goes on a different route altogether later on.

What's interesting though is how everybody's journey has something to contribute to our understanding of the world and people around us. And also, make sense of many of the things which have happened in our own lives. I mean think about, its only when you start discussing about how you are feeling or what your opinion is, that you start self-analyzing or reflecting on your own life. And we need to do that reflecting once in a while, whether it be a lonely walk across the canal or talking to the moon from your terrace.  

So here are some collaborated conclusions, open to debate or discussion.

We can never say what is right or wrong, what is wrong here might be right (or may not be considered wrong) somewhere else so we should look for a frame of reference within ourselves; not in the outside world. 

Simply put, what was wrong in school wasn't wrong in college, what was wrong in college is a given in university. What is considered wrong in university is an absolute necessity in the outside world. 

So, if your heart/mind says this is wrong abstain; if it says its right do it; if its not sure you have to do it to find out which category it belongs to. 

It is difficult to follow the right path

As I came in here, I heard those words, "cradle of leadership." Well, when the bough breaks, the cradle will fall. And it has fallen here, it has fallen! I don't know if Charlie's silence here today is right or wrong; I'm not a judge or jury. But I can tell you this — he won't sell anybody out to buy his future! And that, my friends, is called integrity. That's called courage. That's the stuff leaders should be made of.  
Now I have come to the crossroads in my life. I always knew what the right path was; without exception, I knew. But I never took it. You know why? It was too...damn...hard. Now here's Charlie, he's come to the crossroads. He has chosen a path. It's the right path. It's a path made of principle, that leads to character. 
For example, It is very difficult not to expect anything from friendship or relationship but we should tend towards that. Ultimately we already know what the right thing is, it is pretty straightforward yet it is kind of difficult to tread on it when there are a multitude of distractions and attractions.

A guy is required to keep the friendship between girls and vice-versa. 

I'd rather not comment about this :D

As long as your intentions are not wrong it is alright

Not for pacifying oneself but as long as we never tried to hurt someone we have a clear conscience and can be peaceful.

What is love?

It cannot be explained, it must be felt might be the most cliched answer but in the end that is the only thing one can state definitively. Different people experience love in different ways and it is something totally personal to them and they have that right over it.

Are you listening or sleeping? I'm giving you some pearls here. Dishkhaw. :P

(Update: was planning to expand on all the subheadings but trusting the intelligence of the reader to fill in the examples :))
