What would the world be like if there were no rules?

Pretend you woke up one day and there was no rules. People could suddenly do whatever they wanted!

There is only one word to explain it: Chaos. Complete and utter chaos. First thought would be ‘freedom’. But think carefully. In our daily life, we unknowingly abide by a set of rules and regulations for a safe and healthy living. 

Imagine, you wake up happy, thinking ‘let’s forget the rules and enjoy’. But when you step outside, you see, an underage kid lying drunk on the road, people who don’t know how to drive are driving and crashing into other vehicles, a man with a gun on a killing spree, a group of teens dancing on exceptionally loud music, a few others locked in a wrestling match. The one who gets in the middle to sort out things ends up dead. People are doing whatever they want to, and you rush back to your house, lock yourself inside, wishing it was all a dream. 

There will be no use of the government, police force, laws, etc. Whoever has more power and money will have an upper hand. People will cross international borders. Crime will be at its peak. We will see the true face of every individual. The one with inner evil intentions will be exposed. Only the one with a good heart will not be a part of this bizarre situation. The relationships which are real will remain unaffected. 

The fear of consequences is what keeps us in check. No fear, means no one will think before acting. There will be no law to protect the innocent, and no one to judge the guilty. The world will not be a place fit for living. 

Hello readers! I wrote this article for a job application. Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts on this. Thank you!

Influence of Online Social Networks on our Youth

The online social network has provided us with an amazing opportunity to stay connected with the world. One can say, the impossible is now possible. We can talk, share pictures, ideas, etc. with someone sitting in another part of the world in less than a second. Interaction with celebrities and leaders is now just a click away. That’s pretty amazing. But all of this also comes with a side effect. This virtual world created for the youth has become an integral part of their life. They are so engrossed that they hardly remember how to socialize in reality. 

The social media has also given us a platform to speak our mind. We can tweet, blog, comment our opinions and share it with the world. This has helped us convey our ideas on the internet which was not possible before. But, the youth tends to get carried away while expressing their views. We forget that on the other end of the screen there is a real person sitting who may not like your outspoken nature. Nowadays, with the easily accessible internet and social media applications available on our smartphones, the harassment cases have also increased. As a result, cyber-crime cases have grown to an alarming number.

It is said, ‘Excess of everything is bad.’ We use these online services every day in our lives. But the addiction of social media has had a serious impact on us. The youth is lost in the number of status updates and tweets. They judge each other on the basis of their online popularity. For example, number of likes and comments on a profile picture, followers on twitter, etc.

The world of cyber space benefits us in numerous ways. But it is our duty to understand the limit in which this platform is to be used.  

Let me know what you think! Would help me improve. Thanks a bunch!

I had never imagined the impossible
Never thought this would happen
But how could I deny
What was right in front of me
It was like looking in a mirror
But it wasn't exactly the same
She looked so much like me, only prettier
Slimmer, fitter, better in every way
She smiled at me
The same smile I knew too well
But something wasn't right
Something was missing

Chaos came next
My body petrified, my mind dazed
I couldn't move, I couldn't see
A second seemed like an hour,
A minute was eternity
When the fog cleared,
She wasn't there anymore
But yet she was, I could sense it
And soon I found out
She spoke to me, but
The sound came from my mouth
Then I realized, I wasn't me
Anymore, I was her
The missing was soul
Now she had one, mine
And I was trapped for life.

Hello all! This is the result of my imagination while I was studying for an exam.
Hope you like it. Do leave a comment. Thanks!

Yours Truly...

Hey Folks! I wrote this poem a while ago, just for fun. Read on...!

I do not know how to tell you this
But I think it is time
That I should move on
And so should you

I'm sorry to put you through this
You have suffered a lot
All because of me

Now I am ending this
Trust me it is for the best
Truth is that
You just don't do it for me anymore

I know you must be thinking
That it is me who destroyed you
And made you irreparable 
But this had to happen one day

I apologize for everything
For chewing your bristles and
Ruining your tongue cleaner
Goodbye my toothbrush number 197

Yours truly...

"And they lived happily ever after."
This is the end to almost every love story we read. We have been listening these ever since we were born. Even if it's not a love story, there will be a happy ending.
I love these stories, don't get me wrong. It feels nice to learn that at least in the fiction world someone is happy. And the heart wants to escape into their world and never come back.

"You want what everybody wants. Love that consumes you, you want adventure, and little bit of danger."
I heard this line in a tv show. It's true. Life becomes dull and boring. Unlike the lives of our beloved characters. They have their high school life shown in 4 seasons of one hour shows with every show being more dramatic than the last. And we all watch it every week with more excitement.

The truth is, real life isn't so interesting. At least my life isn't. If my life was to be turned into a tv show or written into a book, it'll be the biggest flop of the century. True story.
I don't have billionaire parents or loaded trust funds. I never had a single entry in my passport, even though it has been renewed 3 times. I don't know any vampires or werewolves. I don't have a funny group of friends who I meet everyday in a bar. I don't have any special talents.

I am just your ordinary girl. Who dreams to be someone someday, but till now is confused as to what is the aim of her life. Who wants to make her parents proud. Who wants her dreams to come true.
I am just plain old me.

THE ROAD NOT TAKEN by Robert Frost

This poem is one of my favorites. I think we had it in our course book in standard 9th in school. It is really inspiring. Just wanted to share it with all of you.
Here goes --- 

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and
I, I took the one less traveled by
And that has made all the difference.

It's Life...

It’s no good to cry for something which was never yours
It’s no good to cry for something you'll never have
But if it's just happiness that I am asking for
How am I supposed to survive without it?

I looked for love, I found it
I thought I would be happy now
I gave my everything and loved unconditionally
But then why there’s no love left?

I asked for friendship, I got it
I thought I would be happy now
We laughed and cheered and worked together
But then why did they leave me all alone?

I wished for money, I earned it
I thought I would be happy now
I spent it all on things I wanted
But then why do I not feel satisfied?

So I gave everything up
The luxury, the power, and the life
And now even in death my face is sad
But then why did it all happen to me?

We think life is unfair
We don’t get what we want
Even if we do, we don’t realize its importance

We play with life the way we want
Make it great or screw it up
But in the end you’ll know
That its life that plays with us...
