If nothing else, the one thing that has been a constant in my life for the last 1 month is travel. While I would have flown in 1 month, what an air-hostess does in 6, I have been sensitive enough to not ask for a salary (from the airline people) to fly this often.
You know, this world... when you look at it from 39,000 feet above the ground, looks the same - I mean the clouds, the stars, the ground, the buildings - everything. And both species who apparently own all of this are the only ones who are not visible - us humans and god!
So anyway, on my way back from Jaipur to Bangalore yesterday - as always, I was sitting on my window seat - contemplating about life (and i feel like I am 50 when I do this - and considering I have been doing this for a while now, I have been 50 for at least a decade!), when a thought came to my head. What are the things that could possibly be happening at this moment as I cover my distance to get closer home. What unraveled was the following, and hence the name - 'Someone Somewhere'...
Someone somewhere's playing a song...
Someone somewhere's pulling along
Someone somewhere's just woken up
Someone somewhere's AGAIN woken up, says he - 'I have woken up, I have woken up'
Someone somewhere's looking into the open sky
Someone somewhere just looked at god (again) and questioned him 'Why'
Someone somewhere passed a friendly 'hi'
A lover looked at his own somewhere and said there will never be a 'forever' goodbye
Someone somewhere's feasting on a meal
Someone somewhere's trying hard to heal
Someone somewhere's trying to hide
Hey look at this other, his heart is beaming & swollen with pride
This other I met, just got hired
Someone somewhere oops! just got fired
The guy next door just got in
The girl close by - looked at him and gosh had that 'lovey dovey' grin
Someone somewhere's making love all night
And look at these other 2 lovers - would they never unlearn to fight?
Someone somewhere's just given birth to a life
Someone somewhere's just completed the circle of life
Someone somewhere just learn to walk
Look at my baby, she said (the other) - he just learnt to talk
Someone somewhere just got the fuzziest hug
Damn! a poor guy in NY - he just got mugged!
2 lovers just met after years of staying away
Someone somewhere just said to their lover - stay, please stay...
A priest in church just started a mass
Someone somewhere defined god in class
A couple somewhere just got wed
Ah! Look at those faces - they look so red
Someone somewhere just won a fight
Someone somewhere again failed to have the insight
Someone somewhere uttered a lie
Said in the same breath - 'i promise to love you till i die'
Someone somewhere just got hurt
Asked himself - did that have to be so curt
Someone somewhere's seeking god
Not by seeking him within, but by reading holy scriptures and chanting out aloud - 'Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord'
Someone somewhere is crying tears of joy
Someone somewhere's only seeking joy
Someone somewhere faked a smile
Someone somewhere just won a smile
Someone somewhere is falling in love
Someone somewhere's seeking love
Someone somewhere is running late
Someone somewhere's got all the time - hence he only meditates
Someone somewhere's walking all alone
Someone somewhere's trying to get out of the 'bloody' heavy traffic zone
Its morning somewhere's and the sun is shining bright
Someone somewhere's just kissed 'em all good night
Someone somewhere's playing along
A lot of the others, well they are just holding on...
Someone somewhere's looking at the stars
Trying to talk to the healing scars
And on a lighter note...
Someone somewhere will read my blog
and say in admiration - 'Wow, Oh my god! oh my god!'
