Sisterly Love!

This one is for my l'll sister with whom - I am bound to argue when we meet in person and stay together for like more than a day!!!! Thats how sisters are....

It's been long - I posted something! A friend reminded me this morning and now while I was chatting to my sis in prose - she suggested, Post it Di! And here we go...

Disclaimer: Chinks - is how I call my sister fondly! She is a fitness freak, a fashion designer currently associated with Ritu Kumar and never goes out of the lectures for me staying fit!!! You might feel this is silly - but I am posting it on my space because I feel whenever 
I 'll get back here, I will smile :)

Hey chinks
My minks
I hope my body shrinks
So that there are no obese links
Face & Figure in syncs
And i look pinks
Eyes ping - Phones ring
Heart sinks, lot of drinks!
Ah! Chinks ...lolz

Dream of Cinderella

O! Rain Showers, come on again
Let the Peppy flowers blossom one more time
Mushy weather but it pleases all,
A Cuppa of coffee and no one is alone,
The teeming noise, it’s like a surprise,
Ah! Whenever you com, you just mesmerize
Come on Rain showers, come on again!

Look at the farmers, they wait for so long
They get drenched in sweat all the time
And wait for you to make their land wet-wet
Come on Rain Showers, come on again!

Look at the city traffic, Oh my! That’s stuck
Honking jams, everyone so awestruck
They want to reach home and sip some coffee
I wish the traffic moves and let the nature get cozy.

Look at the trees and the plants
I am falling in love with green..
If your aren’t in a hush-hush
Look the weather, Wow! It turns serene
Did you notice the surroundings?
The colorful- sparkling umbrellas
As the weather turns like a Dream of Cinderella
Come on Rain Showers – come on again!

Can't get her out of my mind!!

This morning when I went for a stroll, I saw a lady. She must be aged around 48-55 – am not sure! I heard her first, yes I had a tensed mind and I wanted some air. I was already done with 5 rounds of the park nearby, wandering the direction I took a u-turn on the inside road of the society and I heard someone shouting, honestly I heard it like a repetitive shout only and she appeared from the cross road chanting – ‘Om Namah Shivaye’. And I wondered, is she angry with her Lord? Or is she generally like this – I do not really this so!

I was lost in a conundrum of thoughts. Are we all too stressed in life? Most of the people walking around me are in haste, worried and the old ones had a dim look on face. I couldn’t see anybody with a vibrant smile – who would make my morning. Middle aged people were rushing and I wondered – even on a Saturday! Only few kids were all in all cricketing mood and I thought – Alas! Childhood – what fun!

Suddenly, I thought maybe they are all worried because of the rising inflation and the dismantled domestic budgets, may be the elderly miss their middle age and it is quite possible that most of the middle aged are craving for youth once again. Ah! God, such a vicious circle of life, none is happy!

As I walked for few more minutes, relationships struck my mind. May be the youngsters are fighting the cobwebs of bad relationships. You know domestic imbalances – with people, with system, in heart and in mind.  What can we do about it? People play games! They weren’t happy in their life and neither have they wanted to see others happy!

Coming back to the lady, I almost thought, will I turn like her one day. She wasn’t hurting anybody, she was walking and loudly remembering lord Shiva, even I lead a life with him as my ultimate hope in universe.  Then my positive nerves came into action and I was thinking – Ah! She is a god send, lord Shiva sent her to me, to remind me that he is around and I need not worry! And I was at some peace. Even if no one, he will look after me, he would reach me in the walk of life like he reached me during my morning walk. And I remembered that if we haven’t done any bad to anyone – God will always remember that and if someone is hurting us for no mistake – God is watching them. And I am thinking about the lyrics of the Johny Rodriguez song, Never before has a woman ever haunted me, But her magic spell keeps workin' overtime, Somebody please put her out of my misery, 'Cuz' I just can't get her out of my mind

What a walk it was! Put me into so many thoughts – why do we humans expect when we know that all any other human expect from us is – to be their way. Why can’t we accept others like they are? I would say because, our acceptance makes them believe that we are vulnerability proof and they would certainly take us for granted. OMG! What a pity it is.

And then, I reached home, all the more lost. And I wished myself – A Happy Weekend.

Resilient Decisions

 Recently, I had written briefly about celebrating decisions. May be that was the result of a happy mind set, a content soul. And today after reading some posts of my friends – I am once again contemplating about the decisions. Yes, one must celebrate decisions and to celebrate them you need to stick to them, work on them and live them.

Today I am wondering – is it good to postpone decisions for the sake of today.

May be it is. Situations and circumstance do not remain same all the time.  It becomes tough to concentrate and keep the positivity switch on. But then, this isn’t completely impossible.  Yes, it is easier to find reasons and excuses but at the same time – it is easier to find the solutions and tough to execute them. Sometimes things just don’t click but that certainly doesn’t mean we should stop. That only suggests that we need to walk another mile.

People won’t understand you all the time. They aren’t supposed to do so. We have to keep our great expectations – fine tuned.  You would know the reasons and your job is to correct the incorrect, do not fall prey to negative environment around you. Remember, you have a dream and you have decided to celebrate that dream by living it up. Remember, no matter what it is today or how it is today but tomorrow you have to shine.

If it is not happening NOW

Then believe it and work towards it. If something is not happening now that doesn’t means something will never happen. It is in our hands, our own mind. Remember, if something is not clicking today that doesn’t mean it won’t click tomorrow too. Remember, every day is a new day and we have got to try hard. Honest efforts are bound to give results – it’s just that they take a little while.

Do not regret

Regret is a complete no. We shall not regret for the things those are gone by. It worked or not – regret won’t do any help. Yes, constant efforts should be there so that we do not regret about the time wasted with wrong people, negative emotions and lazy surroundings. Remember, once we realize a wrong it shall be instantly made right. There is not right or wrong time to do the right thing. Get up and get going.

Remember, if you are sure of what you want and you ensure what you have decided is achievable. It is achievable. Resilience and Perseverance backed with right efforts are certainly the magic traits.

Shine On.. Underdog.

I never expect to lose. Even when I'm the underdog, I still prepare a victory speech.

Underdog. A bad word for few, an understatement for many but why one shall be proud. Well, I believe one should be. For a simple reason, it makes life easier.

Yes it does. We live in a fast pace surroundings. Competition is stiff and Consumerism is stiffer.  It is a mad age so the least we can do it to become run of the mill. When this thought struck my mind this afternoon – I asked myself, why am I thinking this? And I realized – God answered to my worries, I was relieved. Having launched my venture some 2 years back, 2 years and 3 months back to be precise, suddenly I found myself stressed.  Life at times is harsh. Perhaps that was the case with me – lot of financial pressure, demanding domestic circumstances and what not? I felt suppressed and dead.  But then I realized, there is something in me which can really relate to being the underdog. May be it’s the perseverance, my resilience but something.

To turn the things worst, I had developed this feeling of loss. Loss of ‘me’, all the above reasons left me with no reason, no possibility for my interests & even wish list. There was absolutely no holiday, I could read books, music – gosh! I have been hearing from others about the latest rocking tracks. This is been tough. And then began the fight within – I felt as an underdog, the pressures from clients (read tantrums) to a start-up, the questions from the family and I would confess,the repeated comparisons of increasing gaps. The gap of where they are – where I am, the gap of their 9 to 5 job and my jobless days and 24 x7 days, the gap in their bank balance and my profits. Everything I felt was shouting and asking me – Have you gone nuts!!
Probably yes. This all had made me a tough nut. And I was wandering once again – have I made a mistake. Shall I look back and be upset. Is it a time to change the plan?

May be temporarily, maybe it’s the need of the hour. Well, then is stepping down a difficult task. No its not, because it’s our life and we have to do what suits it best.  And I believe it’s OK, till the time I know that I am yet to make it large. And then, I am aware – at least for me it’s not the first time. Life enjoys playing with me, testing me and smiling again.

And I am relieved…ready to re-live.  I am ok as I am flexible now..I am ready for the flow to find out what suits me best.  But on the journey called life, I would remember the quote -

I'm very competitive by nature. And I like to be the underdog - It's the best way to win. To come from behind and win is a great feeling!

Refresh Yourself for New Beginnings!!


The year gone by - was tough & testing! Yes, but now at this beginning - I am happy, content and once again dreaming. 

Wow! what a start. 

I am glad that I am writing all positives in my mind. Right now while I write - I am thinking of words like Share, Magic, Learn, Sunshine, Green, Young, Peace, Music, Charge, Faith, Innovation, Progress, Transform, Life. These are the words - I kept on my New Year's mailer. These are the words I plan to keep in my mind this year. 

But with all my wishes to all of you for a Great Year ahead....I also want to share the lovely 
Inspiring Words,

You are the result of yourself. 

                                              - Pablo Neruda

Don’t blame anyone, never complain of anyone or anything

Because basically you have made of your life what you wanted.

Accept the difficulties of edifying yourself

And the worth of starting to correct your character.

The triumph of the true man arises from the ashes of his mistakes.

Never complain of your loneliness or your luck.

Face it with courage and accept it.

Somehow, they are the result of your acts and

It shows that you’ll always win.

Don’t feel frustrated of your own failures, neither unload them to someone else.

Accept yourself now or you’ll go on justifying yourself like a child.

Remember that any time is good to start

And that no time is so good to give up.

Don’t forget that the cause of your present is your past,

As the cause of your future will be your present.

Learn from the brave, from the strong,

From who doesn’t accept situations

From who will live in spite of everything.

Think less of your problems and more of your work.

Learn to arise from your pain,

And to be greater than the greatest of your obstacles.

Look at the mirror of yourself and you’ll be free and strong

And you’ll stop being a puppet of circumstances.

For you yourself are your destiny.

Wake up and stare at the sun in the mornings and breathe the sun of dawn.

You’re part of the strength of your life now,

Rise up, fight, walk, be sure and you’ll win in life.

Don’t ever think of ‘fate’

For fate is the excuse of failures.

Happy New Year :)
