The Inevitable Change

I find it rather strange and funny how often people enter my life and slowly they start to fade away just as as they begin to leave slight footprints...and yet again with time the footprints slowly fade away into vague memories only left behind to either cherish or store in a place where it is unreachable with time.

"No matter who you are, No matter where you go in life, at some point you gonna need somebody to stand by you... No matter how much money you got, all the friends you got, you gonna need somebody to stand by you..."


These are the words sung in collaboration by street artists on the streets of California, Louisiana, Brazil, Russia, Netherlands,Venezuela, South Africa, Italy all making music for a change they believe to be possible by bringing awareness of issues through music... It's hard to find friends who are more than just fair weathered these days if you have the tendency to move around much in your life.

I left for India first to St.Helens Convent in Kurseong, Darjeeling in Grade 5 and stayed there till 8 before moving to Kodaikanal in Tamil Nadu, India for another 5 years starting grade 8 due to the terms that started in different months. I found  friends and people there who started to know me more than my own family besides my sister as we would spend everyday with one another so it was comforting and we started to grow together. Then i moved to Canada for University and here i learnt how hard it was to make exceptionally close friends who knew you in and out like high school. I guess in a way its a learning environment where independent behaviour and Critical thinking are challenged and one has to learn to blend in...

Leopards never change their spots, as my mother use to keep telling me. I've come to understand this phrase very much now and with experience it stands out even bolder now with clarity. With every individual i come across and get to know them better, they tend to fall under this category of not being able to change 'let's say for the worse'. I've always believed firmly that no matter what the situation, we humans can never change especially as adults as our thoughts, beliefs, opinions tend to mature and mould us into the character and personality we take upon today.
I've always thought change was temporary BUT now i believe that Change is definitely inevitable!
