Growing up

It leaves me totally baffled when I think how apparently small and seemingly insignificant occurrences have left a profound and lasting impression in this malleable mind. Had life been a bollywood movie, the same would have had all dramatic accompaniments like, say, close-up shots from at least eight different angles or a 360 degree camera swirl capturing all the emotions with a suitably exaggerated intensity.

But such incidents that cause paradigm shifts in your perception of people around you happen but sans any fanfare or even little noise. While the sensory organs get satiated with the immediate offerings, the sub-conscious mind patiently records the data, classifies them, extrapolates, infers and formulates theories.

As someone who is sensitive enough to be influence-prone throughout this continuum of change that is called life, such aforementioned incidents have been aplenty.Like, when I was in college, how the ten-minute video clipping had culled my innocence forever.
