Recession is a beautiful thing

It was bethak on 4thfloor we were discussing economic recession, unemployment, fall of capitalism waghera…I was trying to put all my knowledge outside to justify that recent economic balloon burst is all because of capitalism and consumerism seeking very less likely chances for recovery for at least 2 years more.

Then finally bethak concluded on account of unbearable hot & humid weather with electricity all gone and failure of UPS who was earlier reason for moving ceiling fan with inng zing sonnet asking for appreciation.

In amid darkness we started moving downstairs with mobile phone flash lights ON. I said to him “You see we are moving in dark in recession, are not we moving in gloom? We have been destined for darkness! (I tried to put last nail in coffin of my verbose dialogue)

He said, “I certainly disagree with all your theories & interpretation. Ups & downs are part of life, every boom faced recession, and every recession ends up with hope of recovery so Recession is a beautiful thing”.

The sentence keeps moving in around the corners of my mind “Recession is a beautiful thing”. Next day I accumulated all of my available cash & placed an order to buy discounted stocks considering “Recession is a beautiful thing”.

So finally I have started out. When I thought of having a blog I was skeptical if I would be able to write what I want to? My inside out? My fear of how my reader/listener will think of me was the frontline resistance. Then in recent past I realized that for me more important is that how I feel about my writing. Everyone has a right to agree or disagree to own or disown my words. I am merely self centered narrator of my own. For my own choice and for my own will. You may feel egotistical but for this very purpose of blogging yes I am.

With a title of Daastan Siraey (Narrative inn) I will try to narrate my fusion tale of my inner outer world, my experience of being non-existent existent, my nostalgia, my kahi unkahi, synthesis of timeline, fabrication of articulation, blend of real & fantasy and their jugal bandi, my version of Alif Laila hazar daastan.

Welcome to my Daastan Siraey! Tapestry of woven tales

This blog is dedicated to all those who believe in classic form of story telling.
