Underground...

I feel like giving whatever little I have up and going far away, to go underground.... Untraceable, far from the crowded cities and selfish souls. Far from the world which knows only how to take and never to return. The void and the vacuum of the seemingly infallible life had become a bit much to stand every day. The will to run in an unknown direction and travel in solitude has taken over my soul completely. All I want is a train, a ticket to anywhere, a set of books, some snacks, a big rucksack of necessities and a clear sky above.

given the experiences of d past year im tired and sad of seeing all of us pursuing the same aspirations, the same issues... im now tired of talkin and sharing experiences coz all that has done is put every one of us on the same plane again... where we were lookin for solutions from the few who could relate to them, turned out they were looking for the same.... where are the answers now? who has them?

I have not been talking about work alone. This solitude seeking, escapist behaviour has culminated from various factors. Personal/ professional. Nothing wrong per say, but going underground would help me fill in the spaces in my head. Definitely.. We are looking for something we don't have. Sitting in corporate offices we wonder if the 5 yrs of law study was to end up as a legal clerk. In litigating offices we wonder if we were meant for law at all and not renegade justice/ revolution. We are just aimless meandering souls, confused like all others at the beginning of our careers.

I'm thinking of the hills..

I saw these withdrawal symptoms coming for all of us, I think I was one of the first to be hit as right from the second day at work I began realising that getting used to this life could take a while and of course there were those long periods of introspection, frustration and the inevitable, "Is this where I am going to end up forever, between these four walls, behind this desk?"
Tough times these are...and I concur with Vibhor, we are all on the same plane:) you're not alone Rachita:)

We all need a break once in while, not only from the crowd but all from our on selves.Life today is filled with tensions and in this hectic pace we end up losing out on ourselves. We do need to catch up with ourselves once in a while before we forget who we are
