Ok so way back in first sem, our first assignment was to write something about life... The assignment I was given was “life is like the waves of the ocean which takes you to new lands” or something like that. Because of obvious widespread protest, the topic was changed to “life is like…” I came up with some boring old thing that culminated in the words “life is exactly all about finding out what exactly life is all about... and we had to write a lot of it in around fifteen minutes... two pages to be precise, and the impression it created for my class was mostly derived out of this attempt, along with a certain fateful party, but this was the first. And a year later, I was asked to speak the same shit out, but I couldn't, and now I found the original. Without further ado (except to note that I am no longer proud of this, and never found it clever):
Life is a four letter word – S-H-I-T. Life is like shit, because you get flushed. You influence the color and texture of other lives in your journey. You also get influenced by the color and texture of other lives. The more you move towards the end of your journey, the less do other lives influence you. About midway through your journey, you achieve a consistent color and texture in your life, which you will retain for the most of your remaining journey.
At the fag end of your journey, you become diluted and uninteresting and begin to lose your essence (smell). Finally, you come out of the drainage system and are swallowed up by the vast ocean. This is probably why some people feel that life takes you to the shores of distant lands like the waves of the ocean.
