Story of a lost journalist

What a bordery world!

Filed under: Daily Rot — Cris @ 00:57

March, I have decided is a writers’ month. I am not quite good with the seasons but I realize spring is not around the corner. And summer’s rather a whiny time. But years ago March brought such a lot of happiness into my young mind. Cause even though I didn’t know my seasons, I knew a vacation most definitely tagged along with the word summer. Sigh two months of non-stop fun, of late mornings and later nights, of cricket and caroms… and well in the end, of hoping it would be June again so I wont be bored anymore!

I realize I have wasted every two-month summer vacation – that’s 24 months in my 12 years of school education! My dream about seeing the world could have been realized in those carefree burdenless days! Well there may be a bit of a practical difficulty what with my piggybank running a little short of the airplane fare and the myth that a child doesn’t know her way around the world. I wish the government installed free child packages for kid explorers. It would be such a good use of the tax money. And when they are grown up, they can decide where to go work at, now they have seen a bit of the world. I think it is a really smart solution to a lot of the global unemployment problems and youth indecisiveness. And coming to the subject of ‘global’ I still propose a ban of passports and visas and, going further, borders. I am sure thousands of years ago some innocent primitive kids drew these lines with little twigs when they played running-and-catching. Some idiot grownup saw it and called it border. And that’s how countries were created. Totally misguided idea if you ask me. I should have been a historian. The world could have progressed so much in the educational front, correcting their past mistakes.

I wonder what all this has got to do with March being a writers’ month. Another human shortcoming – lack of focus. I say that’s again the fault of the borders. I have not yet figured out how, but I am sure it plays a role in every one of mankind’s mischiefs. Actually vices would have been a better word there, but I liked the two m-words sticking together. See, there I go again. I have lived in the world of borders too long.



  1. Ok .. Borders BAD ,passport BAD, visa VERY BAD…

    How about “No Mans Land” , guess women get free passes there… :-p

  2. Any month is a writer’s month, but the only thing is that the writer should write what has been brewing in her thoughts since all the other months.. But what I can say is that, for you.. June seems to be your month.. With most number of posts..

    Physical border are nothing when compared to borders human creates in their heart…

    Borders has always been there but people have crossed those borders to be with the one they love ..

    I would love to see you write more frequently like in olden days.. Gathering inspiration even from the thin air.. If the wine from the last new year is left, drink some and let yourself smell some love.. And let us, the readers, be blessed with lots of lovely posts..

    Thank you
