Who decided?

I was whiling away time today...and was thinking about the old days...a look back at the days when I was younger...and how different the things were. Priorities were scarce...all that was on the mind was the homework and the exams coming up...or far most the ways of hiding your cheats and pranks from parents and teachers...
Yes...some of us romantics had the hearts melted by school or tuition love stories...and those floury  dream sequences of how perfect life is...
The point of this post however (...and I assure you this), is NOT the memory lane.

Ever thought how MONEY as a point of concern did not cross our minds until we finally graduated and were asked to search jobs to gain "experience" and build our careers. That is the point when most of realised the said importance of those notes and currencies.

I took out a Rs 1000 note from my wallet today...and stared at it aimlessly. As I looked at the crisp piece of paper...I started conversing with it as if it were an entity capable of replying my questions...
"Who decided you should be of value?"
I looked at it for seconds....and went on...
" Who decided that you, a piece of paper, be given so much of importance? When mankind said that whoever owns more pieces of paper would be richer, why did everyone agree?
I remember reading about the "Tulip Mania" which occurred in the 16th century where the flowers were used as tools of speculation and almost replaced currency and gold.
Doesnt it sound crazy? All of us humans running after something that in reality has no value...but is forced 'value' upon.
Its like me deciding "I am God" and the rest of the world starts following that as a rule, almost blindly!

Everything seems meaningless when you look at it from this point of view doesnt it?
If mankind has equal right of life on this planet then why is the so called "wealth"  not equally divided among all?
I wont say it would be an easier choice...but it would level the ground for starters..."

I know the thought has an endless and aimless end....but I cant help wondering the consequences (wont say benefits...because I am sure there are flaws here too) of a level field for entire mankind...and where there is no concept of money...everyone is obliged and worried only about utilising the resources this planet offers in a economical manner.


Why should you be asked to dream of becoming "rich" ? 
Shouldn't the dream be living , enjoying the gift of life instead?

Moments Lived.

There are times when you wish you can live a moment. Or so aptly put....you have a moment where it seems as if you have lived your entire life...
I am sure each one of us has experienced such moments in our life...and many more in the years to come.

But what intrigues me is how your remember these moments...try remembering one such...you will "feel" that happiness,content,anger,peace all over again...just by the thought of such a moment.

I feel our life is based on collection of such awesome moments... that's what "completes" it...and nothing...absolutely nothing else matters....

As the new year brings me changes...I can only thank God for such moments that he has given me...and for those to come...

Was lazing around today and I realised how Life passes you by everyday...
think of all the people you meet...the conversations...all the people you see everyday...all the randomness that happens...and all the timed events that you force yourself through everyday...

One change...and boom...your entire pattern of Life alters...
Why did I meet these people...why did I have that conversation...why did I invest so much time here...why did I waste it there?
Some questions I dont have an answer to...but a memory has been made.

Yes. I look forward to change for the memories made, the moments lived.

To a new beginning...
