Is the moment really dying?

“What is life? Its all about experience” He said.

She nodded in agreement. To a great extent she has always agreed to this. Trying to live her life on the same principle, she has changed many cities, experienced many a things, good and bad and yes have moved on as well..

“Go to a new city, meet new people, live a new life” He continued.

Lost in thoughts, she nodded again.

He would often say nothing is as special as experiencing something new. "Special moments with new people make life worth living. Experience a moment, it has the power to touch deepest corner of your heart.", he used to say.

"It’s a moment which defines the very essence of life. What is life after-all? Culmination of many moments together.” he would say. How could she not agree to this? It was something he believed in? It was something she also made herself to believe in. In fact, she has also desired to lead her life in such a way that experiences never cease to knock her doors. She has always felt the power of moments.

This is how we also met, she thought.

It was the openness to accept a totally different person, an excitement to experience something new, a readiness to evolve together that brought them closer. And yes it was an experience worth experiencing to say the least. It was an experience so dear, so close to heart…

But today here at the deserted corner of this railway station, she is now questioning, questioning not just one or two but everything. Here she is, wondering whether these tracks are separated from each other or are companion for their lives.

Moments have always been an underlined topic in his discussions. Moments...are they so special? Or did he make them so special? Moments, why just moments?

Tonight she is out to experience something new. Time has arrived. She has always craved for this and now is the time. She is moving to a city unknown, to faces unseen, to a world unheard of, to a life entirely new. She has always desired newness in her life. But now when it is right in front of her, her feet refuse to move. She should be excited but why is she not? She should be looking forward to it but why is she looking back? What is holding her back? Why is it so difficult? Too many questions in her mind but she fails to answer.

"As I travel alone in this crowded world these moments that I have experienced are going to accompany me. they will be my side, all my life. It was an experience I will cherish all my life" She thought. Or is it this experience she wants to live all her life? Does she want to save this moment from dying? Those few moments, special moments, which are now dying. Are they actually? What is it, she fails to understand..

Loud Siren…flashing light brought her back to the world she was in.

Still lost in her thoughts, she lifted her bag. Quickly wiping off that uninvited drop of tear, she went ahead…

  7. An experience is carried forward by memory. It is of the past,good or bad. The new can arrive when the past ceases, when there is space. one needs to die to live, not to lie though:p good refection on 'Life':)
