Yours & Mine

The people you meet everyday...And those you meet once in a while...The people you met once and might never again...And those you have never seen but might know after walking another mile...Stop a while and consider where you could have been...And where you are...Pure and innocent as you were...or like so many others...tainted and vile?? They say the first cut is the deepest...and your first buy is the cheapest...So your first dream should be the most genuine...and your first victory the sweetest...But then we meet people...some we call friends...some we want to call the same...We share the lunches...we share the secrets...from the first crush to the first game...From the first fight...the first moment of fame...to the first moment of shame...We keep some people for life...we lose some for the same...And while we live to share what they call loneliness...We share the one thing we should not...our dreams...with people who might define them as lame...And so we listen to what they have to say...“but only a fool would not want to earn a name...” “Class 10th...do well and you are done for life”...heard that before?The dreams can wait...or so i thought...“Class 12th...do well and you will have your career”....The dreams can wait...or so i thought...“IIT...get through and you will need no more”...The dreams can wait...or so i thought again...“IIM...get through and its done”The dreams can wait...or so i thought...damn I could have learned...what a shame...“Earn enough...you should be self sufficient”The dreams can wait...or so i thought...now it just sounds so redundant and lame...“Got to marry soon...you should be saving and getting settled now”The dreams can wait?? I don’t think so this time...coz thinking just doesn’t seem to be my game... Yes I love the people i know and yes I care...But I aint sharing my dreams anymore...I just won’t dare...Coz my dreams are mine...and not for sale...As precious as they come...beautiful and rare... Let us walk together for a while...Maybe a few feet or a long mile...Yes the moon is beautiful and the stars are bright...But to just emphasize the facts won’t make the conversation right...Let’s talk about you and your life...share what’s yours or maybe mine...As two people who have met today...but might never again after the clock strikes nine... Let you not define how I think...and let me not define your frame of mind...Let’s just talk about us...the way we see us...And our dreams we will leave alone...coz after all...Your dreams are just yours...and mine...are just mine..CheersShetanshu

Media Strategist by profession & a singer by passion. Hailing from an orthodox middle class family & being academically brilliant was never meant to be an achievement; it was an “unquestionable-to-be-necessarily-fulfilled” condition. But we have been bestowed with the greatest motivator- curiosity. I found myself trying to be the all rounder the Indian cricket team so desperately needed back then. I made it to my school team, my college team, and it does seem now, that I might be just a bit too late in getting there. Someone once took a liking to my voice, which had just found maturity, and I found myself impersonating Kishore da on stage. I think I did a good job back then, as I found people still seated by the time I had finished. I had found my alternate career, at least that is what I thought, when someone again saw in me a potential debater. With presentations turning from love into obsession : I currently am working in a media firms helping brands crack strategic code & helping in giving them a truly inspiring brand identity !!
