Confession ! 'The X-Factor'...

I had two options in life…either give up, get drowned or just stand up, hang in there & wait for the right time…but that required tons of patience and an attitude which was not me.


I was always a go getter…If something was distant then I ran…If something was locked, then I would find the key or break open the lock…I believed in creating my own destiny & I owed this attitude to Shakespeare who said, “Men Are The Masters Of Their Own Fate”. So was I too, but I never realized what fate was…

I also heard people talk and say “Its your fate”, “Leave one to one’s fate”, “That fateful day ”, “Twist of fate”. So is everything predestined or still men are the masters of their own fate. Whatever I do is it the result of a predestined course? or Whatever I do decides the course of my destiny? To answer this question again I had two options…either give up or just hang in there.

To hang in there…I had to alter my true nature and change into something that I was not use to. This was the dilemma which had no quick fixes. I decided to keep moving. I kept doing my bit and left the rest on the X-factor. Yes the X-factor…it is that X thing which somehow let the things come in our favor or go against our wishes. X-factor lets the situation evolve. It makes the picture clearer. It brings a problem to its conclusion. Its that X-factor which has been defined as The Hidden Power, The Devine Justice, also The Will Of God.

But what determines the X-factor…I really don’t know, I just kept doing my bit with a faith… that however tough it may be, however long it may take, however it is looked at by the world, I shall wait, wait and wait for the justice.

Its is this ‘wait’ that changes me…my fear to change disappeared as change was the only option I was left with. I forgot what my true nature was, I forgot how the world looked at me. My goal was justice and I was ready to wait for it.

This ‘wait’ meant being patient for justice and it also meant being undeterred from doing my bit…though the goal I was waiting for now appeared too small infront of the goal my new evolved self could perceive…The changed me was calm, patient, humble and persistent…I could understand myself more. Probably the magic of the X-factor was in my favour, or the changed me was attracting the magic of X-factor.

My First Marathon...7.5 Kms...

First time in life I was running 7.5 Kms or 7500 meters... Sorry guys but how can I, I was always a sprinter... 100 & 200 meters, that was the maximum I ran at any competition... Can I really run, dont know ? at least I can show that I am not worried...
Ok now its the time for a KODAK MOMENT right before the start...all smiles.. but can i really complete the run...
So here we go... there are many who are not running just having fun...ok why not have fun while running...right, thats the key...just run and have fun...!
Oh Mr Khan is here too...wow ! today he is cheering me...but why is he not running...?
Unbelievable ! I ran and ran well...infact all of us did...'Yeh Dil Mange More'...but next year...

See I am smiling...ok let me confess... see how I am trying to smile... it pains at every step...thats why I am sitting...but I ran 7.5 Kms rather 7500 meters...
