Football fever has caught me totally. It seems agess that I have slept properly. Waiting for the late night game, fiddling with my laptop, doing some writing, going through facebook, twitter and FIFA site, then watching the game till 2 AM has been regular. I cant sleep in the day time. Its a big problem. But, cant miss any games.
It needs full dedication and stamina of all 11 players for the whole 90 minutes. Sometimes 120 minutes to stay in the game or win it. But, it takes just one moment of silly mistake, lack of concentration of 1 player to lose. The same was witnessed in the game of Japan and Paraguay. One penalty missed and it washed away the dreams of whole Asia. That is fottball.
Even our life is like that. It takes a lot to create, achieve and maintain things. Be it professional, personal, emotional and relationships. If we miss one penalty, everything might collapse like a building of playing cards.
It was Friday, June 18, 2010. I was sipping a cup of coffee st Alina’s Bakery cafe and watching the game between Germany and Serbia. The big projection screen they had set up displayed the fast paced game. A lot of other people were also enjoying the game. A cool breeze brushed my face. And, suddenly I felt so good. I was happy to realize that I was ejoying the game like that. And suddenly, out of nowhere a strange melancholy filled my heart. There are so many un privilidged/under priviledged people in the world who have to compromise with things they would have loved to desire. I felt guilty in some way….Could not analyze my feelings, a strange amalgamation of joy and sorrow….
If only…….could be explained in any way. We all go through if only syndrome in life. No matter our cast, creed, age, sex, location or anything else, we go through if only……
There are so many times we have said if only………in life. If only someone got what or whom he wanted, if only some one thought about you, if only certain time or incident had happened or not happened…..if only someting had happened the way you wished….it is endless….the things which fall under if only…
नेपाल साप्ताहिकको मेरो स्तम्भ बायाँ फन्कोबाट
राजनीतिभन्दा पृथक् विषयहरूमा ‘बायाँ फन्को’लाई सीमित राख्ने ध्याउन्न बेलाबेला असहज हुने गर्छ किनभने अचेल हाम्रो समाजमा हरेक कुराको राजनीतीकरण हुने गरेको छ । त्यसैले बेलाबेला हाँडीबाट उछिट्टएिको तातो मकैजस्तो बनेर ‘बायाँ फन्को’ राजनीतिको भुंग्रोमा हाम फाल्न पुग्छ, नचाहँदा नचाहँदै । यसपटक पनि त्यस्तै भएको छ । राजनीतिक गतिविधि र त्यहाँको अखडामा हुने उठापटकले एउटा आमनागरकिलाई पर्ने हदसम्मको असर पर्ने बेलामा आँखा चिम्लेर समस्याहरू नदेखिए पनि हराउनचाहिँ हराएका हुँदैनन् । देश हाँक्ने मान्छेहरूले गरेका कुराहरू जटिलताको पराकाष्ठामा पुगेर भ्रामक भएको बेलामा, तिनका कुराहरू बाझेर मान्छेपिच्छे आएका फरक अभिव्यक्तिहरूले आफ्नो बुझ्ने क्षमतामा नै धमिरा लगाइदिएको बेलामा हामीजस्ता नागरकिलाई आफू र आफ्नाहरूका साथै देशकै भविष्यका बारेमा अत्यास लाग्नु स्वाभाविक पनि हो । Continue reading
