Hello to my dear readers! Welcome back to my blog. It’s been a long time since I’ve written anything. All thanks to my year-long writer's block.
Well, now that I’m back, I’m gonna take you through my multiple perspectives on a lot of things before my next block kicks in. Here we go!

I was getting late for a lecture so I took a fast train, and that is when I saw this beautiful confident group of women standing beside me.
I couldn’t take my eyes off them. Indeed they were the center of attraction the whole time.
Well, one thing that amazed me was the fact that they were different and they didn’t care.
They were enjoying their conversations with utmost zest and did not seem to care about the people who were constantly gazing at their attire.
Their beautiful smiles and story-filled eyes made me feel a little left out as I could not understand their language. But, one thing I knew was that their conversations were something that was mainstream to their daily life. I could say by listening to the tone of their discussions. They might be bitching about their spouses or maybe even talking about their villages. It could have been anything and everything.
But for me as an outsider, it made me wonder what they were talking about. Hell, I even wanted to ask them about where they got their jewelry from.
But I didn’t and I couldn’t. I wondered why I did not go and talk to them. Maybe I was nervous. Maybe I didn’t know what to say to them. Maybe I was scared or embarrassed. I don’t know. And, that’s when it hit me.
The reason that they were effortlessly confident was that they were too comfortable in their own zone. The fact that nobody in the entire coach had the guts to go and talk to them gave them the freedom of being themselves.
You see this is where it makes a difference. The moment I or anyone being an outsider will go to them and ask them questions about their daily life, it will make them wonder where am I coming from. And, it will jinx out the simplicity and mediocrity that they own.
And that mediocrity is something that I admired as an outsider in the first place. Right?
I know, It’s weird how in order to be noticed by people, you have gotta be something that’s not ordinary. Meanwhile, the beauty of mediocrity never fails to amuse us.
So that was me, penning down my little observation and perspective for you guys after myself.
