Do U want to name this topic??? - (Blog-a-ton 6)

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 6; the sixth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.


The present topic I am going to write here is of very adjective less and tag less type of presentation of my thoughts as I will not write this in a planned and scripted way and rather I will try to put it in a natural and instinctual way. I want to taste the amazing experience of writing whatever my mind senses but without filtering and controlling my thoughts.  Lets see where I will land upon. Whether I am going to conclude something or does it end without a tail. Is it really worthy topic on my blog? Am I keeping a tab that someone is going to read this? I just want to write something without prejudice and bias. If you are busy with your work , you can stop reading this here as it is almost fruitless. But if you are curious and excited, like me, to know what I am going to end with, you can continue. Initially i have planned to write on the concept of 'Simplicity', but as I opened my PC, I just got this naive and spontaneous idea of instinctual and natural way of writing. You may call it purposeless, aimless, meaningless, direction-less attempt. You may not call it so because you might not have stopped in between reading this topic. Even I am not going to bother about the literal standards while writing. I just want to travel along with this natural flow of writing which is as similar as a river's curvy journey. May be i have planned this so called 'unplanned writing', who knows? May be i am going to manipulate the thoughts of readers too in the name of natural flow, who knows? Going for this amusing and strange attempt, while listening to Rahman's latest album is really a bracing flavour till now.


Whenever you sing in bathrooms,whenever you rotate something on your fingers, whenever you play with children, whenever you drench in rain, whenever you gossip, whenever you call our friends, whenever you go to a temple, whenever you dance in isolation, whenever you hit our friends, whenever you play with a ball, whenever you hug your teddy, whenever you whistle a tune, whenever you try to grab those tender raindrops, whenever you hum a melody, whenever you soak in a gorgeous sunrise or sunset ............... you don't do all these things with a planned strategy every-time, sometimes they just happen instantaneously and are instinctual . Only i know the exact rational behind this effort.The reason may be that i don't want to get stereotyped or I don't want to follow established standards and procedures or I prefer natural instincts or I want to fill my boredom in life or I am trying to experiment or I love to be myself most of the times or I want my blog to represent myself more than the ideologies or i want to skip from the flock of proverbial sheep or i am lacking topics to write on or am i just kidding?? It all depends on your perception and opinion about me and the post.


This topic is not for publication or feedback, its just for my writing spree, to feel myself, to live at this moment in my own way. Neither the expectations nor the responsibilities, neither the isms nor the standards, neither the compliments nor the comments, neither the yesterday nor the tomorrow, should manipulate my thought process. Its neither about breaking some existing rules nor creating a new way of writing. Its simply to be original, though not creative. It is to be more of Me. It is to be like a small child who plays aimlessly and and yet gets the maximum satisfaction of living at that moment, who smiles for himself, who don't keep in mind that he is learning day by day, who depends on meaningless sounds and cries to express his momentary feelings and emotions, who hardly bothers about his surroundings , his parents, his past, his name, his nakedness, his looks, his capability, his stature, his colour, his ego while communicating with his toy friends.


Right now we are swimming hardly, in the malady of rat race, in the ocean of Consumerism, which is filled with hard core sharks of Planning, Career, Time management, Dedication, Morality, Commitment, Aims, Resolutions, Deadlines, Appraisals, Brands, Style statements, Weekends, Show offs, Gadgets, Social-websites parameters, and more, in order to keep afloat the ship of "Corporate" , at the cost of our Health, Emotions, Relationships, Passions and of course Life. When was the last time you lived a moment to its maximum and for yourself? When was the last time you felt that you were free from the shackles of past and future? When was the last time your mood was filled with joy irrespective of whether it is a weekend or a weekday? When was the last time you didn't act to satisfy the societal obligations? When was the last time you unmasked yourself from the clutches of formalities? When was the last time you embraced the colours of life?  Wow, its pleasantly surprising that such a purposeless writing has turned into some lively brainstorming(am not sure though it appears sort of...). I know you are still thinking whether this is a planned or unplanned writing. But only i know the fact that it has served my purpose of writing because i lived these 20 mins to the fullest possible with Rahman's soothing music. Its been proved yet one more time that happiness is within us. By the way,  when was the last time you lived a moment, absolutely in your own way ???

Hey Makky ....good job
very impressive and u make us think a lot with ur bolgs.
This Blog made me to write comment or compliment on it ( how ever u accpt it !!! )
Today u made me question myslf wich is quite intresting as we all forget to think abt ourself.

1st and 2nd paragh is like ....thinking wht must be at the end

and

In 3rd parah u tried to expalin wht u think abt kids and how they play,react,cries,learn....
thats a good thought.
Present day we all lack in thinking soo practical and realistic way ...whch u are trying to put it across in ur wrds.
( i feel how a kids feels if he goes thru this written abt thm....im sure this will boost up their energy...ofcourse this thought is foolish heheh)


And at the end liked the question u aksed ....

for all the effort of urs ill name ur Blog as

" Read ur MIND and follow ur HEART"

well done

and Good Luck for ur upcoming Topics

Mahesh Kalaal said...

Thanks buddy.....
and i am glad that my blog is helpful too besides reading.

i will read my mind and write my heart.....jus kidding

Now tell me whether it is a planned or unplanned writing.

Pragnya said...

yeah it is absolutely " unplanned "

i feel planning is defntly important for few things and it leads to happy ending ..like planning is important in wrk..its imp in journey..its imp whn it come to finance ...
( this is following ur MIND )

But there are few things whr u shdnt plan in advance..like a smile..staying with ur loved ones...eating..sleeping..and whn u respond to someones comment on u....angry...laughing for jokes and lot more
so one among unplanned is ur Blog Makky
which is simple and neat ...
( this is following ur Heart )

planned is like an official wear and unplanned is like casual wear

in othr words......
we love wearing official wear week days and we love our casual wear more than that....
liked waiting for the whole week to be urslf in a casual and relaxed way during week ends


so i conlude it by sayin it as " Unplanned " with sense in it



Good Luck !!!

Rupa Nishanth said...

I have only one thing to say..the topic should be "A Blog" because a blog is nothing but "write what you feel". So what you have written is simple..it is as simple as a human thought where there is no glitch, no hatredness, yes of course no plan..!!!

Avni said...

Thanks mahesh. seems you do a lot of writing. Its great that young men like you find time to express feelings of their heart. keep up the good work.

Nikhy said...

One small question here!!!
could you please let me know whether did you plan before writing this blog or not?

Nethra said...

Good you wrote something for you wanted to write and not because you wanted appreciations.
It was too long but nice in a way.
All the best. :)

Karthik said...

I don't agree with "unplanned or purposeless writing or going with the flow" as you mentioned. But I do agree with "going with the flow WITH a purpose."
Then again, I'm glad to know that you having a nice time with this. :)
All the best for BATOM!

Raksha Raman said...

Hello Mahesh! I think everyone writes with a purpose. Sometimes it is for sake of others and at other times it is to satisfy oneself for the purpose of self gratification :) This post for example is written for the purpose of being a part of BATOM 6.I appreciate the fact that you wrote it w/o expecting appreciations in return. That is what a true writer does. He just writes. Anything he gets in return is a bonus :) Good luck!

Dreamer said...

"Going with the flow" is of course the best way to write. I agree with Raksha that a true writer just writes and that anything else is a bonus.

Yemiledu said...

Purposeless writing is what I love to write. Because they actually help me to end up with a purpose. I have never planned what to write and would never want to except during my exams. :P
Some bloggers chose the blog space to show their creative works & others to express & find the original 'me'.
I am glad you chose to be the latter one... at least this post makes me feel so.
Will surely read more of your post!!

And I couldn't remember a moment I lived my life my way....hey wait no I did that yesterday while I wrote something for my blog.
Writing makes wonders....to me for sure!

:~P Take care!

Roshmi Sinha said...

Made for a nice read... and I do not think that this post was purposeless :)

All the best for BATOM!

Shilpa Garg said...

Interesting thoughts which were good to read!
Keep them flowing!
Cheers :)

Madhu | INDImag.com said...

Hey Mahesh, Long time since I stopped by. How are you ?

That's a first for me. Just a brain-dump if you will :-) . Will try it sometime ; I am at the other end of the spectrum and usually over think my posts and discard some if I do not like the end product ..

gkam said...

A brave post. Brave because many are hesitant to let their thoughts flow freely and fear to be subjected to prejudice and bias.

Good luck for BATOM6! :)

aativas said...

Unplanned writing? Most of the good writing comes through subconscious, but to do hard work consciously is essential. Otherwise ideas just die. Writing (or any art for that matter) is a combination of both unplanned and planned.

Talking Skull said...

I would tend to agree with Madhu. If the purpose of your writing is for YOURSELF, and to pen whatever comes to your mind, then it is closer to writing a diary, and then the blog should be personal, not accessible to others. But, if the purpose is to SHARE your thoughts with the virtual community, then it needs to be planned and 'packaged'...:-)

It was a good read, and I am carrying your questions "When was the last time you lived a moment to its maximum and for yourself? When was the last time you felt that you were free from the shackles of past and future?" with me as I leave for home now... :-)

Good Luck for BATOM-6

dattaabhishek said...

I feel that writing down something can never be unplanned, for we usually write slower than we think. SO by the time we pen down something, we would have thought of some corrections to the sentence or thought of the next sentence. If only we can write as fast as we think, then that can be called unplanned.

Your writing was probably the gist of thoughts taht you were going through at some point in the past, and had written them down accordingly, though in a much coherent and readable manner.

But the new genre you tried to bring forth is commendable.

Just Another Life said...

live for yourself... don't know if its really possible.

nice read....

pushpee said...

Good flow of thoughts, one leading to another, just needs a bit of editing..Nice :))

Shruti said...

Write for yourself, write to pen down your thoughts! Everyone cant write each time with a purpose in mind. These are our private space and we write when we feel heavy! This is what I feel after reading your post!

Tuppence said...

That was a great thought. True, life's best things happen without much planning.
And with no expectations come great happiness :)
A feel good post.

Megha said...

You made me nostalgic...

Vipul Grover said...

THUMBS UP..
enjoyd the beginning and specifically the ending.. gem of a finish :)

pra said...

Very thought provoking post. I have done this only for myself when I write a diary but...I think I am more like Madhu about my blog posts. i sometimes do not even try to write if I am not satisfied with the end result in my mind...I think I should try this kind of thing!well...you have done a great job here.

@ Mahesh

Hey its not that I forgot commenting you this very post but the effect on me was such that I could not leave this post by only commenting...

You have ones again in your own more of the way made me recognized the beauty in simple things yet the DAILY DELIGHTS!!

Yes many people do forget themselves in the everyday working on the busy life…yet there are still the people like you who remind us the innocence in us like we used to have during our childhood.

It is such a fun and pleasure to be a child just the way you have given the example in your post.

Thankyou for making me celebrate myself by being myself, the More of Me :)

Truly you...
..Keep the spark Alive!
