where are we goin....

as i woke up today morning.....i kept repeating in my head all that i had to do today..."go to the bank,go to the bank,go to the this shop,go post this and then that, collect this....and then that also....."and then then what....then sit down and rellax for a bit but....no we have no time for that....but when i drove on my bike i was scared.....the roads were wet....and i thought i had lost touch with riding a bike.....at a point i used to be the fastest....my friends would swear that i could get them from A to B in less than ten mins anywhere in pune.....but today i drove slow...on the left side of the road.....cautiously....had lost my helmet when i left it somewhere last time.....so i felt naked without it....the rain was pouring...and cars sped from my right.....i felt at a point i should wait under a tree for the rain to stop....but then i felt....i understood....i needed to do this....i needed to ride in this rain.....feel it on my face...in my hair......the water trikled from my forehead.....this thought gave me some confidence ....i sat up straighter in my seat....and tried to feel every drop hitting me....like in 'shavasan' we try to feel all our breaths and body parts....thats when i finally got to relax....be by myself....give time to my thoughts....and my feelings....and the feeling of being under those drops....do sometimes....actually most of the time forget to feel the mmost basic things.....and i kept driving because i was scared maybe i wont be able to enjoy this rain....next year maybe....cause if this year its come in july.....maybe next uear it wont......and maybe someday i will be telling generations much after us of how there used to be rain....and how we used to enjoy it.....my heart beat faster....the thought was a thought that was not only possible but also demanding from me an answer.....an answer to me.....did i ask the right question.....and to whom.....did i ask it to the right person....what should we do.....do we learn to live without rain....without water.....do u think man can evolve into a being that just doesnt need water anymore....do u think we can evolve like that in the next ten years....just questions....WHERE ARE WE GOIN????
