Roads, books and music?

I saw a man crying, standing at the corner of the road close to a small cigarette shop, the other day. I hadn't noticed the cigarette in his hand until he got it back to his mouth to take another drag after wiping his tear. It was about two in the afternoon as far as I can remember when I walked towards the bus stand. The sights one sees and comes across on a daily basis can leave you blank at one moment and make you wrack your brains a bit the other. A story being there behind every act. A reason.

I enjoy solitude. Sometimes.

In our daily lives, things which are meant to happen and planned in prior.. A possibility of them taking place is always the highest. It's fate which plays its role. An indication given by it to let chance play its role mustn't be ignored.

And about three lines quoted from 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being' by Milan Kundera,
"Chance and chance alone has a message for us. Everything that occurs out of necessity, everything expected, repeated day in and day out, is mute. Only chance can speak to us."

Yes, I'm reading that book. My first book! I'm pretty sure that I've mentioned before that I don't read books and that I believed I couldn't..for nuts! But, I find 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being' very intriguing somehow. Even though I have managed to read only about fifty pages of it till now.. I'm liking it. I mean yeah, I'm going with the flow. Surely, it is not a book meant for me when I'm a starter and haven't really read a whole book by myself before, but, I'm reading it anyway. Oh and yeah, just the gist, as to why only this book out of all the books in the world.. That's simply because, a friend told me once.. 'Do something for me before you die? Read this book?'

*sigh. That statement speaks a lot in itself. Doesn't it? So yes, I'm reading a book! :)
And a quote comes to my mind for some odd reason, "And remember, no matter where you go, there you are." ~ Confucius.

Also, the most awesome song ever is 'Last Day of Your Life' by Glass Pear! :D
Needless to say, it's my current obsession. And, every time I open the bookmarked page of this book.. I play this song along. I'd kinda say that the whole : The Unbearable Lightness of Being + Last Day of Your Life = Awesomeness? Umm, atleast till now. :/

P.S. - I saw 'Dhobi Ghat (mumbai diaries)' today! Oh, technically, yesterday.
Will write about it in the next post :)
Oh, and and and, I also made a bucket list two days back! :D
