Inside the Devil's Mind...

Facing a fear.... Ride or Collide...

Once upon a time lived the fearless Spartans.. blah blah.. fearless attitudes and stories can just go on.. rite ?

‘Fearless’ has been exaggerated over the centuries giving it a superhuman touch.. Ignorance of wat an individual fears doesn’t make him fearless.. does it ?? Pondering over the yrs I hv understood tat everybody fears something, its more about u knowing it & how u face it ??

Its not about battling it out or running away from it but the calmness of just staring at it and still trying to remain unaffected.. Nobody sees ur attitude at tat time and nobody cares, but u have to face some truths urself sometimes to attain a salvation.. I m not trying to be a new kind of yogi here, if u thinking so ?! better said than done ??

a 300 kms bike journey at unmentionable speeds in dark nite wid mucky NH-17 amidst a storm and then steep foggy ghats took my hypothesis to next level.. I must admit - I was damn afraid, for a major part of the ride coz at such speeds and on such unknown dark terrains u cant make mistakes.. and if u make, u wont be able to write such blogs.. No guarantees tat those fears wont haunt u back but it felt great conquering a fear at tat time.. at times such insanity gives me the sanity to face the ‘real normal world’.. the fear and facing it had given me a high and a new understanding (sumthing which booze has been unable to!!!), to try out another hypothesis, another adventure next time.. the whole episode summed up to - The Fear was High & I was High on Lyf…
