What if I wake up one day to see everyone else in the world has vanished? What if I am the last person on the earth? How will I survive? Intriguing prompt isn’t it? Who can give such intriguing prompts to me than Indispire – IndiBlogger.in? Well, I thought of giving this a miss but I am such a rebel that I don’t listen to myself so here I am blogging about this prompt.
As I mentioned you, there is no one in this world right now. I am the last person on this earth. How will I survive? Huh! Wait a second, why should I survive? I mean seriously man, why I should try to survive when I can live! Well, the concept of surviving irritates me. I do accept learning survival instincts are necessary at times of disaster, distress, blah, blah, blah. However, I need to survive if there is someone dependent on me, if not then why should I survive? Instead I will live till the last moment. Yeah, that’s what I am going to do. I am going to live till the last moment.
Now, all through my life I shout and scream at people to leave me alone. The irony here is now that they left me alone, I miss them badly but what’s next? I can’t sit on the couch and keep missing them. Well, I am the last person on this earth and everything else is just intact except human life. However, the power of human life is very essential. Without them all the technologies are going to be waste. I throw my Lumia away. Who needs it when I have no one to connect to? Here is what I am going to do!
For the first few days I use up the groceries from my home and after that I break into nearby grocery stores and take all the essentials I need and stock up my kitchen. I can eat as much as I want or as little as I want. My date is not here so that I don’t need to worry about my perfect figure but still I am still here and my mirrors are here so I want to look fabulous. Well, I will compromise on a heavy and tasty brunch and a light supper.
Damn, I am scared of dogs and their howling, ok howling is too much of a term, barking. I pray to God (am agnostic theist, you see); that I shouldn’t die from dog bites. Then I try to visit various places around my home, the lovely temples. I can have free and lovely darshan of Lord Parthasarathy, Lord Raghavendra. No, I don’t want to risk travelling to Tirupati or Mandralayam because I can’t drive for that long but I will initially try driving buses, Lorries, and even airplanes to small distances.
Love thyself is my mantra for Happiness. I will love myself (again you dirty minds, stay away). I meant will take care of myself, meditate, write things that I would love to read, go to libraries and pick my favorite books, shop in the malls (I don’t have to pay), roam around like a nomad. Drink the tastiest wine, read the most intriguing book, watch the funniest movie, and fall in love with my life. Be a rebel and stand up againist the normal or monotnous thinking.
After a while, I may get bored or exhausted. I may change the routines then. I may run out of food or get attacked my animals. Maybe I will also vanish like other human beings but till then I will live every moment as if it is my last.
“Sri, Sri” called my mom. I look up from my laptop as she said, “Get ready relatives are coming over.” I roll my eyes at her as she walks out of my room. At times like these, I really want all people to vanish so that I can live in peace. 😛 🙂
