Its not about me or some particular person actually, it’s about all those rare individuals out there in the crowd of millions who don’t have much public appearance, who are just somewhere living in their own small world but they all have something very rare and special. I refer to all of them as Anonymous heArtists / sheArtists (Heart`ists – An Artist by Heart). This site is being run and maintained by an another persona (aka Azu), who is an IT professional (They call him the silent techie, another heArtist) and I would prefer to remain anonymous as long as he can handle it without having any issues. Let me begin my expedition.
For all those born in 80’s
We were the last generation that learnt to play in the street.
We are the first who’ve played video games, see cartoons in color and went to amusement parks.
We were the last to record songs of the radio on cassettes and we are the pioneers of walkmans and chat-rooms.
We learned how to program the VCR before anyone else, play with the Atari, Super Nintendo and believed that the internet would be a free world all on a 56 kbit modem. Traveled in cars without seat belts, or air-bags and lived without cell phones. Rode our bicycles down the road without brakes. We never had phones but still kept in touch. We did not have Play Station, 99 television stations, flat screens, surround sound, Mp3’s, Ipods, computers, laptops, and broadband…
But nevertheless we had an EXPERIENCED Time.Anonymous heArtist
Yes, I am born in 80’s too but like me, my date of year has also become an anonymous taboo. It’s something else in papers and actually said to be something else. And there is a lot complicated incidents that have marked the time, place and incidence on my birth. Born in in the most dangerous place in the world and the most beautiful, also often said to be the God made heaven and man created hell. No wonder why it’s said, our life is destined before our birth only. Everything happens for a reason. My existence becoming a taboo, has started from my birth only. But it’s for sure that me and my persona both are born in 80’s only. That’s what connected us probably (life and azu), and that’s what connects us to all other generations also. We understand the old generations and we know the new generations also. and above all we know the line of differences in between which is like a black hole, some dark dimension impossible to enter by every generation and we have born, lived, and brought up through this dimension only.
It’s for you all those born in 80’s. You have been gifted with a power of experience that neither the previous generation nor the future generations will ever get to know even. It might seem like a curse at times. I wont say why it’s a curse because those who have been through it will be already knowing it. But you should also know that the power you hold actually can hold the world from falling, we can’t save it, it has to end anyway, but we can hold it till the end to make sure it doesn’t end falling apart. 80’s may not be the only such generation, I believe there may be many such generations in different times at different places within the same world or in other worlds. We just don’t know all. Yes, it’s a gift and a curse too. But what you feed more, will only grow more.
