The beautiful thing called life...

How life changes rapidly...
From dawn to dusk,
From radiance to dark,
From land to horizon,
From smile to laugh,
From forests to sand,
From oceans to land,
From thoughts to terms,
From emotions to expressions,
From life to death,
From breath to breath,
Have you realized how rapidly life changes?...
From month to years,
From years to decades,
From adolescence to youth,
From teenage to adulthood,
From adulthood to old age,
And from there to grave,
We lose all the precious years...
In cribbing and crying,
In fulfilling and gratifying,
In worrying and weeping,
We forget to enjoy and cherish,
This beautiful thing called life,
Which is given to us only once,
Once in a life time…
Why to waste it over immaterial tensions?
Why to waste it over insignificant reasons?
Learn to cherish this beautiful reward,
Which has been granted to us by lord...

Me, my space and my weird thoughts!

Helllooo!!! And guess whos back?

I was definitely not busy this time... Naaaaa, I wasn't... Just that I thought to take a break deliberately! Break from everything on earth. Off course, this "everything" doesn't include office as that's something which is beyond "everything"...

Anyways, I was in a different phase: a phase when you wish to be alone, when you feel like taking a break from the whole wide world, when you feel like discovering your inner self all over again, you feel like exploring your soul and your mind to the extent that had never been done before, when you mentally get hibernated and you just get shifted to your own little secret place, a place where nobody else has a permission to enter!

But yes, there are few lucky ones with whom you still want to talk, you want to share your stuff and thoughts, even in this phase:)

Yes, so I was in that phase from last few days and so, I just did not feel like writing anything... Its not that I am back from that little secret place of mine to this real world completely... But yes, I am back partially:) I mean I had to! I had to! Compulsions of life you know... You can't remain hibernated forever, that's nature's rule... You can only avail that luxury in the winters and you have to come back to life once the winters are gone...

Wish it was in my hands and believe me I would have remained in my little world forever! You know, that place, that amazing world of your own is so so thrilling and enchanting that you just don't feel like being a part of this real world anymore!!

Anyways, lets me change the topic else I will be labeled as a crazy! BTW, just to add I am not AT ALL on the verge of becoming a saint:) No, I am not!

Anyways, have you ever met somebody with whom you just feel an instant connection happening in the first meeting, even if you don't share words, you feel as if something is common between you two, you know that you both will end up being best friends, you know that this person is going to take a special place in your life? Strange no... BTW, there is other side of the coin too... It also happens that you meet somebody and you just feel a kind of dislike for that person in just the first meet! What do you think why it happens? Specially the former one?

I donno! Somehow I feel that destiny is a very powerful thing. We meet those people with whom we are destined to meet... And then at times, you end up being super duper best friends forever!!! God, I sound so so confusing at times!!! Am I sounding so now? Never mind...

Ok... I am gonna take an off now... Else I will start filling up this space with allllllll my weird thoughts!!!

You keep smilingggg and stay blessed:)

Sun's Monotony

I look at the sun, the poor sun sitting at one place,
And wonder how monotonous it would be for him...
To do the same job everyday,
And that too in exactly the same way...
He rises at the same time from east,
Travel from the same path towards west to set...
Poor guy can’t even change his directions,
Or at least the path for a change...
What does he do sitting there for the whole day?,
Smile, laugh, cry or yawn: nobody can say...
He is alone and has nobody to talk to,
At least moon has stars to share his thoughts...
He has beautiful cold nights to enjoy,
Clouds to drape and stars to share the joy...
Poor sun has nothing but to sit idle,
And stare at other planets...
Moon even have the option of taking leaves,
Poor sun has no such thing to retrieve...
I wish I could give company to him,
And get his monotony trimmed...
I wish I could make him smile,
Which could help him to travel miles...

Success: Whats your definition?

Today morning, I saw an ad of dulux where Farhan Akhtar is seen saying few very intense and enchanting dialogues about success, passion, imaginations etc... Anyways, immediately after seeing that ad, I asked my husband: What do you think success is? and he gave such an amazing answer. He said "Success is getting what you want." So true!

Then I looked for the dictionary meaning of success. There were 2: 1. The accomplishment of an aim or purpose and 2. gaining wealth and status. I was upset!!! Why do everyone always link the word success to words like "Aim", "purpose", "wealth" and "status". So, people who don't have anything from this list but are still happy cannot be considered as successful??? I asked the same question about "What success is" to myself. And my mind immediately responded "when one feels happy and contented is when one is successful" and I was happy from my definition! and BTW, I truly believe in it.

How can you label yourself with the successful tag if you have loads and loads of wealth but no satisfaction, no time to enjoy that wealth and all you aim for 24X7 is about its safety, about how to increase it!

BTW, No offence to anybody. The meaning of success is different for different individuals. In this post, its all about my definition about it.

I always wonder how can one really declare of having achieved success merely by achieving materialistic goals, aims, wealth? That's it??? Don't you think its like depreciating the value of this amazing word called success? I think so! Success is something which is much much beyond these mere materialistic words. For me, words like happiness, peace, satisfaction, enjoying life defines success. I might be sounding like a crazy saint. But its ok, I say what I believe in from inside.

Guys, piling up wealth, achieving a status, accumulating tons of money can never ever give you peace, happiness and satisfaction beyond a certain point! All they give is more hunger for more money, gives you much higher aims to achieve and all you keep doing for the whole life is fulfilling that hunger.

Nobody in this rat race ever thinks about the end. Are we not mortals? Are we going to live forever? Does anybody know what will happen after one's demise? I mean will one get another chance to live and breathe on this beautiful planet and that too as a human being! Now think, does it really matter how much wealth one has accumulated? At the end, everybody is going to meet at the same point:) I am sure God is not going to have different chambers for "successful" and "unsuccessful" beings...

I am not saying stop working and just enjoy! No, that's like demeaning life. All I want to say is try to give a small share of this word "Success" to words like happiness, peace, enjoyment! Give them some space in your busy lives. If you can't create a 50-50 balance between ambitions and happiness then at least give a share of 20% to the later in your life. That will be more than enough to change the meaning of success for you. Believe me...

You remember as kids, small things used to make us smile, make us happy? I think back then we were more successful as compared to today. Wish we had a barometer to measure success and I am sure, it would have proved my point:D

Have you recently laid on your terrace and stared at those stars, the beautiful stars, the heart throbbing moon and felt them penetrating and sinking deep in your thoughts? Have you seen the beautiful sky and tried to create different shapes out of all those white dreamy clouds and felt them capturing your mind? Have you recently seen a flock of birds flying high and wished you were one of them? Have you recently bid a goodbye to a flying plane or a helicopter? This all sounds so crazy now? Isn't it? After all, we are not kids anymore, we are matured grown ups. It will be so embarrassing for us to do all this now. Right? hahhhh... We humans tend to live with so many illusions! Because we don't have time for all this, we ignore them saying that we would look like a fool doing these. You must have surely read the story of a fox who on being unable to get a few grapes, leaves them thinking "Those grapes are sour"! We all behave in the same manner...

Anyways, I believe in the opposite. All the above give me immense pleasure even today. You also try doing them and believe me, the happiness you will get is commendable, its beyond words...

Getting materialistic success had no meaning if you deprive yourself from small enjoyments and happiness guys:)

So, try to dedicate a small share from your busy lives to achieve the other (and real, for me!) part of success :)

Keep smiling alwaaaazzzzzzzzzzzzzz and stay blessed:)))

18 till I die

This is based on a totally crazy thought of mine! Sharing with you guys:

I think of the day, the day, the day,
When I will have wrinkles all over my face…
When my hair will grow completely white,
When my thoughts will be free to fly like a kite…
When I will become a little whimsical,
When I will be free from the prison of ambitions…
When I will just have nothing to take care of and no worries,
When I will have time to cherish all my childhood memories…
When I will probably wear a spec with thick lenses,
When I will become friends with pain in back and knees…
When I will have ample time to fulfill all my hobbies,
When I will love to hear the word called Granny…
When I will go to the Garden with my old fellow friends,
When I will love to sit under the tree and gossip with them…
When my children will start guiding me for everything under the sun,
When I will boast about my experiences to my grandchildren…
When I will start calling my husband whimsical,
When I will start getting irritated with his anger…
When I will have the power to ask him to keep quiet,
When my world will shrink to him and his lovely smile…
When my wrinkles will show my years of existence,
When my white hair will narrate the tale of my experiences…
How will I feel when all this will occur?
Weird, odd, happy, bizarre, contented or peculiar…
I am sure I will still sing my fav song,
18 till I die: the theme of my life:)

Keep Smiling:)

Rain: Please go away...


They say they love the rain,
For me, it’s just a pain…
That too the pouring without season,
To abhor rain, it gives me a bigger reason…
But there were days when I used to badly wait for monsoons,
My small fingers in wait to touch the droplets and globules…
Days when I had time to sit and enjoy its beauty,
When I used to wait to get drenched in its purity…
Where had those beautiful days gone?
Why don’t I wait to get drenched anymore?
I want to know about my sudden hatred towards rain,
Is it because it forces me to be confined in my home?
Or because of the darkness of these clouds,
Pouring like crazy and thundering so loud…
I feel they are here to take some revenge,
But what is it that they are so desperate to avenge…
Or is it the sky crying so hard,
Shedding its tears and roaring so hard…
I just want my beautiful sun back,
That brings a smile in my day’s rack…
Am I thinking too pessimistic about the rain?
Why am I only imagining tears, revenge and pain?
May be the sky sent these clouds as a messenger,
To bless our earth and take away all the pain and tensions…
I don’t know what the pouring is all about,
I just want my sun back which is hidden behind these clouds…
I feel like tearing this blanket of vapors, smoke and haze,
I just want the brightness and sunshine to clear this maze…
And then will come the beautiful rainbow,
Spreading the seeds of happiness to be sowed…
How much I love to see this amazing combination,
Of brightness, vividness, radiance and brilliance…
But I still hate the drizzling and rain,
For me its still the pain!

Waiting for someone:)

Like the lips dying to smile,
Like the dreams ready to go miles...
Like a kid in a hurry to grow tall,
Like the dried leaves ready to fall...
Like the clouds ready to pour the rain,
Like a heart ready to get relieved from the pain...
Like a bulb ready to brighten a room,
Like a flower ready to bloom...
I am waiting for someone,
Someone to break me free...
Like a river dying to collapse into the endless ocean,
Like the sun waiting to sleep by the arrival of moon...
Like a bug waiting for a bud to blossom,
Like a moth attracted to the burning flame...
Like the exquisite beauty of the sky at the sunset,
Like the dawn ready to overtake the dying night...
Like the tears ready to escape from the eyes,
Like the emotions ready to break all the ties...
I am waiting for someone,
Someone to break me free...
Free from this earthly affair,
Free from this world’s fair...
