Reason to Believe

A fabricated story does not become a reality by simply overstating it. There are facts and lot many are exaggerated repetitions, which everyone starts believing in. The mind does get swayed and oscillates between your reasoning and the truth that is being dished out to you.

Sometimes not palatable, you have to savor it, with a smile on your face. Even though you later suffer from ‘irritable mind syndrome’, you cannot refute the illogical with your sensible arguments. Many a times you just want to revolt, but it all ends with a whimper, with rage, creating turmoil in your mind.

Taking a cue from the old adage and slightly tweaking it I may say ‘life is stranger than fiction’. There are a lot of things to grapple with in a lifetime. With apprehensions, paranoia and putting on a brave face, trying to give meaning to life and as far as possible conform to the set ideas.

It sometimes feels that once written in concrete, the words and ideas may have faded away, but the remnants of their warped explanations seeped way too deep in the minds. It is not minds over matter anymore. As if there is one single idea treated as the truism. There is no other choice, but to follow this only, seemingly fit path, to the destination.

Individual thoughts and ideas seem to fade away and stand pale against the deep furrows that have been etched on the minds. Propagation for faulty ideas exponentially increases the risk of those ideas being amplified. It’s difficult to struggle and fight a lone battle and trying to reason with everything and a fabricated story does become a reality. What an irony!
