At Infinity

"When you are in heaven, it does not matter, which side of the street you are walking"
THE BIG THREE: From left to right:
Eiger(3,970 m), Mönch(4,107 m), Jungfrau(4,158 m), SWITZERLAND



When the success will be bitter,
And the Failure will taste sweet.
Me and Life, two Parallel lines,
At infinity, will we finally meet.

  3. WoWser!!! Thank you for not denying me of my ultimate "Spiritual Gaze" :D

    I just perused your latest post and I can't believe that you penned this for the mere factor of the rhymes ~ which are excellent, by the way! When I first read this it floored me because it is so profound and now you're asking me what it means :P

    OK, here is my interpretation: When someone is very successful it can be lonely at the top (linking this thought back to a previous post of yours) and many people get jealous, etc. Sometimes we lose our best friends or at least the ones we thought were our greatest allies. Suddenly success will taste bitter when/if these things happen.

    When we fail, it gives us another opportunity to try again. We learn a lot from our failures so this is the *sweet* that we gain from the experience.

    The last two lines are the most thought provoking and very unique. How can the two parallel lines ever intersect? Something has to bend, perhaps? Probably the 'me' but if this is describing 'you' then it most likely won't happen (due to content read in previous posts :P)

    Ahh, so the mystique and wonder of it all is what will preserve it's intrigue and beauty . . . for infinity! :D Fabulous post, Kunal! You continue to present us with very creative and thought provoking posts!

    P.S. ~ I've been meaning to ask you this since I first joined your blog . . . what does Hausle Buland mean? :D

    1. P.S. ~ I just read Bikram's comment on your latest post and I think his explanation is better than mine :P even though there are some similarities in content and interpretation :)

    2. That is the beauty of writing. Yours interpretation and Bikram's explanation, both are true. In fact, none of the explanations can be wrong..right?

      Its not what I meant to say that matters. Its what you take it from it does. And I am just happy that you could take something so profound a thought from it.

      Thank you so much for nice words. I will keep trying to come up with 'very creative and thought provoking posts!' :)

      P.S - 'Hausle Buland' Means High Spirits. (Not as in when you are drunk!) I was called by this name in college and there is a story behind that. It means no matter what the situation is my spirit is always high. :)

    3. High Spirits ~ I LOVE it!

      Giggling @ the 'not drunk' part ha ha! It's the perfect name for you as I read the meaning :)

      Thanks for the explanation and you're always most welcome for my 'books' :D

  4. I have tasted sweet failure, much better than bitter victory.

  7. Amazing! Short and profound. Forced me to interpret something out of the box which by the way I'm gonna keep concealed only in my head. ;)

    I'm glad I landed here. I'm gonna stay and keep reading your transcribed thoughts. :)

    1. Thank You Rachit. And why do you want to keep is concealed in only your head? Pour is here, if you can. We will all be willing to hear, what you have to say. :)

      You are welcome here. :)

  8. Wonderful thoughts dear Kunal, at infinity we meet the truth and sometimes question our existence and our lives.
