Another Brick in the wall

 Unedited piece of crap and random thoughts.

Some of us believe that our life is 'Pre Destined'.There is only a little we can do about it follows as it follows a pre determined path by some unknown entity.If so,why not stop walking and wait for the same entity to carry us to our destination?But irony is that these core believers in destiny, are the ones who work hard on changing their destiny.My job hunt has been in an exciting track so far.It taught and also made me realise certain interesting truths about life.Most of us are always running behind something or the other.Be it be love, job, promotion,fame.When we succeed we never stop running,we chase for the next milestone.
The race continues as we see only milestones ahead of us.The power and strength of the thought 'I am in control of my destiny' makes the pace more vicious and dynamic.
But for those who stumble,they see nothing ahead of them,but the assurance that their fall was predetermined.They struggle hard and try to give up.But the very next moment,they feel a strength which helps them run this mad race again.Like the tortoise race,they succeed and then thank the 'destiny' for the strength.
Now that I am trying to withdraw myself from the mad race with an excuse that I see myself somewhere else ,I decided to give a little thought on what I really wanted in my life.The very first thing that came to my mind is to see my name in Wikipedia!  :P
Like the world leaders,I feel I should make a difference in my short life,I should leave behind something that would make people remember me forever.This is the part where we realise how selfish we are.Everybody wants to be famous and wants to make a difference for their own self interest.I am not in a research profession where I can hope to invent/discover something.So what should I do about it?Dont we all make a difference in this world?Some of us are lucky enough to be in the wiki,some in the google search engine and some in the hearts of people.
For most of us all that matters is to have our names in the hearts of our dear ones rather than being in wiki.
I decided to find a wacky solution or rather conclusion to the silly philosophy of 'wikiomania!
Do we ever wonder about those bricks inside the well plastered walls in our rooms?.All that we see are those bright bulbs and chandlers.A single brick removed from the wall might collapse the structure,but still we never really care for those bricks nor we ever wondered what made those walls which have been securing our existence.There are so may unexposed bricks.They all have an equal contribution in building our place.But all that we care is that bulb which can blow out anytime,which would put us in a temporary darkness.We do replace the bulb and appreciate the light.But then again who comes in wiki..The Bulb or the Brick?
