My Childhood fantasy comes true...

     We all ,as kids in kindergarten,must have had a lot of thrilling fantasies about growing up to become a pilot,an armyman,a detective or be a superhero and save lives or be a cop and nab the bad guys...(Ppl..I ll let a secret out...I fantasize all these things even now. :-) )

    Well frenz..I got a chance to kinda live one of my childhood fantasies this sunday.We,Pankhudi volunteers,had planned to celebrate the Children's Day on 15th Nov(We couldnt do it on 14th!!).There was a dance,some sermons and a Mime.The Mime was a story of three theives.In the mime,I got to play the COP,who eventually nabs those three thieves .I had always dreamt of being a COP.Thanks to the mime ,I got to live my dream.Though it was just around 30 sec appearance ,I enjoyed doing it.And yes ..the kids enjoyed the mime too,and that was the most important thing.

     All n all ..the event was great.Trust me really feels great to see those innocent smiles all around on kids faces.The kids were at there best when they danced.The ambience was inundated with mirth and I was overwhelmed.

         By the way here is the pic of "The COP".

Happiness and Sorrow:Two faces of the same coin

    Last night ,I and Prasad(Prasad ,a very close friend) were at Vaibhav's place..(Vaibhav..,another very close friend and a fanstastic actor apart from being a COEP heartthrob) having some quality time chatting.We were talking about different things and suddenly the discussion veered to a talk about "Joys and sorrows","Happiness and dismay".

      Thats when Vaibhav cited an example about how joy and sorrow are interwoven.He took a coin and asked Prasad and me to make a call.I chose "heads" and Prasad chose "tails".He tossed the coin in the air.He then caught it in his hand.It was "Heads".So he said,"Akshay ,U have won.Take away your heads!!".I happily tried taking the coin from him ,but he held it firmly in his hands.He once again said,"Akshay ,Take away ur heads".I was like..,"Thats what I m trying to do,bro".He once again said,"I am not stopping you from taking away your heads,but you are trying to take away tails too!!" I said,"How can I take away my heads without taking away the coin and hence tails has to come too".In the meanwhile ,Prasad and Vaibhav ,both were smiling....

     And then I realised what he was trying to say.He wanted to say that happiness and sorrow were two faces of the same coin.You are never subjected to only happiness or only sorrow.They both are interwoven.If you wish for happiness have to be prepared for your bit of grief too.And if you are in grief wont last long ..happiness will surely follow.Vaibhav then concluded that Happiness and sorrows were complementary to each other.

     I and Prasad were smiling....we had been enlightened...:-)
