Choices n confusion ..,

I can imagine just how peaceful the lives of ancient men and women were in the pre-historic times. Their secret was simple. They had less choices to choose from in everyday life. Though they didnt have all the luxuries and tools that we have today, which by the way are also among the reasons for the confusion that choices create, I'm sure their life was way smoother than ours.

Considering the confusion that choices create, I've been a very confused person lately and I'm not enjoying it. It took me three freaking hours to choose ONE pair of clothes and mind you, I'm not really a fashion conscious person. It's taking me and my dad almost a week to choose a good cell phone. (We still haven't made a final choice.) It takes me 15-20 mins to pick a movie when I go to the movie rental parlor. It takes forever to choose a gift for somebody. It's a brain racking and (in a way) life threatening choice to decide on what you want your career to be.

It's kind of funny that life becomes both organized and confusing because of the many choices we have. Too many choices give enough options to pick something from so that we can almost have exactly what we want but again considering too many options certainly doesn't go easy on the brain.

Why I chose to write (I actually made a choice within a minute on this one !!! yaay ! ) about this topic was the confusion I was in about the topics I wanted to write on. I wanted to but I decided not to write about possible solutions to deal with confusion because everybody has their own way of dealing with it or atleast they'll learn with experience.

I want to take my blog to a new level, may be a photoblog, or a blog on social issues, or a cookbook blog or continue just the way it is ? Hmm...... I'm confused..., again.

Take some time to chill, do something you normally enjoy doing. Then when you are faced with your choices, you'll decide better. :o)

I read your blog and thought I could tell you about something else which would be useful for seeing maps and directions in India.

I am writing to tell you about, a free interactive maps and directions portal for all India.

As a company and individual enthusiasts, we dream only of solving the problem of reliable directions and navigation for India. For your blog specifically, you can map enable it by using our youtube-style embeddable maps, and links to specific searches (of maps, directions, local and eLocation) on MapmyIndia.

Do give us feedback, suggestions, or get involved yourself by mailing me back at or

And if you find the different services useful, we would be grateful to you for writing and telling your readers about us.

Nothing is forever stagnant in life.. instead of the current pushing us in the stream of life, we are being given the illusion of decisions, to absorb our time. this is wat i feel :-P
