Sailing in the same Boat

Picture Courtesy: Nikhil Bangera


Hello dear grievers,
You problem receivers.
I keep hearing you say
to one another
at odd hours.
'We are sailing in the same boat!'

Maybe that does you good.
Makes the job easy.
But, for one second,
could you just pause
and consider
what all your sailing
has done to me!?

You sail, and you sail through.
But let me just inform you.
I am beginning to sink
in the same sea
With other mercilessly over-burdened
boats like me!

  2. This brings to mind Amir Khusrau...
    Darya prem ka, ulti nau ki dhaar;
    jo ubhra so dooba, jo dooba so paar.

    But I suppose modern life just doesn't seem to work that way!

  3. @ Retardo - If this brought Khusrau to your mind, I must say, I am really honoured..
    And yes, modern life! I'm not quite sure how it works! ;)

  5. Excellent post! I'm also a sailor and like to share a little bit. I'd like to emphasized on Preparation. Firstly I will look at boat preparation, sounds simple, but this is the area that you will most likely miss, and rest assured that gear failure will only ever happen when you are in a strong position. Therefore, before you arrive at the open meeting check everything onboard and avoid using those famous last words, “It will last at least one more regatta”. Get it replaced with the best like for like replacement you can afford, it may just save you from that sickening feeling as you watch the mainsail drop down into the bottom of the boat. You get my drift! Cheers!
