There is a song that says (oh, old movies make me cry), or was it sad movies!
In my case it’s books.
Books (stories, novels) do make me cry!
I was on the first line writing a new post for my blog, the line went off like this: (I am curbing a blob of tears in my throat) & was questioning my self, if reading really suits me ?? when I saw a friend of mine on the messenger.
We started talking (thro speakers), then I told her (I am reading a story for - Amin Maalouf – harbors of the east) and that I feel like crying!
She asked me (R U silly ??)
Said (NO. maybe am emotional !)
(No that’s not called emotional !)
(Well what would u say if I tell u that I was hauling for a week after I read – god of small things- for Arundhati Roy !)
She mumbled something on the speaker that I couldn’t figure out.
I went on defending my self, (well, I do get into the emotion that the writer is conveying)
She again mumbled something!! Well what can I say about differences in broad bands or what ever ???
Am I being silly !! I thought, I should give it a shot of thinking.
Today I went on reading the story, & I felt that heaviness in my throat come again,
It was time to leave work (thank god) and I started tearing up in the car !! well silly or not, I felt like crying !
I cant imagine some one loosing his whole life in a mental institute when actually he was fine !
The idea really tormented me !
By the time I got home, oh boy !!! I started crying then laughing at the idea of me being really silly.
By the time I sort of got to the end of the story, I thought of the lesson that I think the writer is trying to convey,
Do NOT wait for others to come & GET YOU of what u r in !
YOU have to find your way.
Your way of escape.
Coz It’s your life !
So what do u think ??
Am I being silly !!
