"Try hard to get what you like or you will be forced to like what you get!"
Life is all about trying your level best. The only way to make a dream, which might seem impossible, is to "try hard" to achieve it. It’s the possibility of that seems-to-be impossible dream come true that gives a hope and makes life worth living. It gives you strength to get what you like. Never give up. Destiny might have its own course of action. But that doesn’t mean that you leave everything on destiny and don’t put in the efforts that you are expected to. Sometimes destiny tests if it should give you the responsibility of what you want. In the worst scenario, you might not get what you like but when you look back 10 years from now, you will not regret that you dint try for it and had let it go just like that. At least, you will have the satisfaction that you dint lost something because of yourself. Try hard- for your sake!

The Zahir

Yippee.... I finished reading another book by Paulo Coelho.. The Zahir.. Zahir means something or someone which, once we have come into contact with, gradually occupies our every thought. It can be considered either a state of holiness or of madness. The book has nice philosophy in it. I liked it a lot.

Loved the part where author compares himself to a cathedral. The story about circle of love is lovely. “No one should ever ask themselves that why am I unhappy.”— the paragraphs following this line are awesome. A part of the book does inspire to forget your past. I got a bit confused with the explanation of the acomodador part yet liked that too!!

The best part of the book is when he understands what Zahir actually means and writes a few examples from daily life to which we can easily relate.

Now, coming to its plot. I find a few things little ridiculous. According to him, he and his wife, Esther are happily married for 10 long years, having everything one can expect in life. Money, fame and above all, love. And then one day this supposed to be happily married lady leaves her husband without telling anything because she felt something was MISSING. So she herself goes missing!!!!

Now if you feel that something is missing in your life, should you face it, talk about it and try to find a solution, or should you just run away from it in peace, leaving the other person worrying for you. Is it that we don’t realize the worth of what we have till we lose it? And the husband, who claims to love his wife, falls in love with another woman, Marie. Initially it is because he wants to forget Esther. His “this” concept of “love” is beyond my level of understanding. Then he realises that Esther has become his Zahir, but did he think once that even he can be Marie’s Zahir. I was just wondering how the book would look like if Marie writes it in her words if she realises that he was her Zahir!!

Amazing work of philosophy.. Paulo is truly worth all the appreciation he gets..

Allrite.. I am not a fan of Ekta Kapoor’s K-stuff, but.. but.. but.. happened to listen to this one.. and in one word.... AWESOME. Fell in love with this one when I heard it for the first time. Great lyrics.. Beautifully sung..

Kade paer zamin te na paundiyan, Vich arshan de ghumdiyan rehndian
Na te jeen e den na te maran e den, Kade hasdian rehan kade paundian ne vaein
Kitta marjanian ne, paida insaan ne, Pal pal jaag janda nava aarman
Kade paer zamin te na paundiyan, Vich arshan de ghumdiyan rehndian
Na te jeen e den na te maran e den, Kade hasdian rehan kade paundian ne vaein

Khwaish.. I just love this word.. ajeeb baat ye hai ki insaan ki khwaishon ka koi aant nahi hai.. even I have lots.. I wish...
...That i could actually wake up in the morning listening to alarm
...That i have long longggggggg hair
...That the radio would only play music I like without any advertisements
...That I could learn to play guitar someday
...That I could swim
...That i could eat lots of chocolate cakes and ice creams without putting on weight
...That i could sit by the beach at sunrise watching a new day in beginning
...That I had less wishes :)
And lots more.. Therez a long list.. Just like you.. Just like everyone else..

By the way, here’s a sher from promos of Khwaish...
Kehte hain... har kisi ko muqammal jahaan nahi milta,
kabhi zamee toh kabhi aasamaa nahi milta,
mujhe pyaar toh mila, meri bhi khwaish poori toh hui,
par poori hokar bhi adhoori – Khwaish…

Hate or no hate..

A friend of mine has a strange problem. One of her friends, whom she doesn’t like, is being nice to her. Funny eh?? Not for her!! According to her shez stupid and by that i mean really stupid. The first question that came in my mind is how can you dislike, hate, feel like killing etc etc etc someone who is being nice to you. Strange situation!! For those goody goody readers who are gonna tell me that we shouldn’t hate anyone at all, the fact remains that we do come across people who are irritating, whom we dislike and whom we want to avoid. It’s as true as the fact that there exist people who dislike us and would love to avoid us. :) So, what should one do in such a situation?? Let me see what options I think she has:
  1. Be rude and try your level best so that the person hates you..
  2. Be good to that person but continue disliking him/her..
  3. Be good and try to change your feelings..
  4. Ignore the person and his/her goodness and stupidity..
  5. Feel guilty for hating someone whoz nice to you..

So, what should she do???


One of my favourite one-liners:

I'm cursed with a good memory.
A good memory also means I have to remember the bad memories!!! Even those bad sectors of life, which I don't want to remember. I don’t know why people say forget the bad memories and remember the good ones. It’s not practical. One can be happy for 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds in a day. But for one second that thought which you don’t want to remember flashes in your mind, that one moment which still lingers in mind.. that one stupid thought that still haunts.. that one person about whom you don’t want to think.. that silly moment you hate to remember.. Yes.. for that remaining one second in 24 hours you are reminded of that pain.. of everything. And then.. remose.. anguish.. grief.. guilt.. regret.. shame.. sorrow.. whatever.. And as a friend of mine said: “wo ek pal baki k sabhi paloon pe bhari padta hai.” I wish I could erase those sad little memories forever. Hmmm.. Are you thinking about your bad memories? Started blaming your good memory for bad memories ehhh?? Hey.. hey.. Am I a part of the bad memories section of someone's memory? Maybe.. I wish I wasn't.. I wish I could erase those too. Even I would have hurted people, but I don't remember everytime I did that. So, how can I say I have a good memory?
Do you have a good memory?

Graduation Day..

We had our graduation day on 1st September. It was rocking. The arrangements were superb. We all were given black gown, cap and hood to wear. We marched from main library till football ground along with the band. Then we had an inspiring speech by our chief guest Dr M H Kori, technical director, Alcatel-Lucent Technologies. After this they let free pigeons and balloons in the sky. The scene was absolutely superb. We were made to take oath by our vice-principal. For the first time in 3 motnths I had the feeling of being a graduate. It was a wonderful moment. Each one of us was called upon the stage and given a certificate. We all enjoyed a lot. From 1pm till 7 pm we talked non-stop. We were given a memento which had a group snap of all classmates. It was great meeting all friends after such a long time. While sitting there I was thinking about the first day of my college. All of us were strangers. Now the faces were familiar. I thought about the four years I had spent in this college. There had been some good moments and some not-so-good. But the good moments are more than those not-so-good moments. I thought of those good moments. A smile came on my face. Thanks DSCE.. for all those special moments and thanks to those people who made them special. Then I thought of those not-so-good moments. Those things that matter the most at some point of time seemed so irrelevant now!! A smile came on my face again. A smile.. for being childish. A smile.. for giving importance to those who don’t deserve it. A smile.. for all those assumptions and imaginations. Someone has rightly said that all is well that ends well. Sometimes an end can be a new beginning... a better beginning. Philosophy!! Chalo yeh kabhi aur. About graduation day, this was one of the best days in my life. It feels great to be a graduate. Congrats to all my batch mates. :)

P.S.: When we came back after returning the gown and stuff, I was little sad. To those whom it concerns, I already told the reason!!

Main aisi kyun hu!!!

Yiiiiiipppeeeeeee...... I am back from Chennai. I went there along with my brother. It had been a nice experience overall. I enjoyed a lot. I saw a beach for the first time in my life!! And ya.. it was quite interesting too. Those of you who know me well must be knowing what a unique brain God has gifted me. In my journey I proved it once again. Read this post and you will agree with me.

I got my tickets booked on 22nd August in Shatapdi Express. The train from Bangalore to Chennai was scheduled on 25th August and return ticket was on 30th August. I got xerox of both the tickets and kept them in my purse so that I don’t have to take out the original copy for any verification. When I got the tickets book, it was in waiting list(WL). No 52 and 53. I was told it will get confirmed. With lots of hopes, I filled the PNR number here on 23rd night and saw that it was WL 32 and 33. On 24th morning I checked again and was happy to see that it was confirmed. We got coach C5 , seat 34 and 35. The train was scheduled at 6 am. We reached station by 5:30, searched for the platform number and sat at our place. By this time the list wasn’t put up on the train. Then one uncle came and claimed it was his seat. We were like whattttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt. Dad went out and checked the list which was put up now and...................... we were not allotted those seats!! We came out and everyone stared at me. I said I checked it properly. Then we talked to TT. He told those weren’t our seats. We were WL 1 and 2. There were lots of other people who were having their seats in WL series. It was 5:50 am now and everyone was standing around TT. At last nominal charges were paid to TT to allot some empty seats to everyone including us. Within 5 minutes we went from one coach to another because there was no empty seat where TT sent us. Each time before changing the coach we ran to TT and asked for another seat. It was so exhausting. At last we got one seat. I sat and my brother searched for another seat. Later TT allotted us 2 seats together after breakfast. Then I had to listen to a big big big lecture from my brother.

My Unkymood Punkymood (Unkymoods)I took out the tickets, saw the PNR no. and...................... I AM AN IDIOT. Me, the FOOL with capital F,O,O and L, entered the wrong PNR no. I entered PNR no. for the return ticket!!!! I know I am careless, stupid, foolish...... BUT TO THIS EXTENT!!!!! The tickets clearly mention the route, the date and above all, the return ticket already had coach C5 and seat 34, 35 printed on it!!!!!!!!! How could I have neglected three facts mentioned on the ticked itself. On the Xerox I had taken the return ticket was on top, so I blindly entered its PNR no.!!!!!!!

I am heights and limit of foolishness and as I said, I keep proving it. All I can say is.. Main aisi kyun hu!!! Keep coming back for such examples.....

Do Not disturb-2

Its 6 days now, and I am still getting calls and messages from Hutch.
Well......... any suggestions???

Management Lessons..

Got this as a forward. Thought it was worth sharing here.
Lesson 1:
One fine day, a bus driver went to the bus garage, started his bus, and drove off along the route. No problems for the first few stops - a few people got on, a few got off, and things went generally well.At the next stop, however, a big hulk of a guy got on. Six feet eight, built like a wrestler, arms hanging down to the ground. He glared at the driver and said, "Big John doesn't pay!" and sat down at the back.Did I mention that the driver was five feet three, thin, and basically meek? Well, he was. Naturally, he didn't argue with Big John, but he wasn't happy about it. The next day the same thing happened - Big John got on again, made a show of refusing to pay, and sat down.
And the next day, and the next.This grated on the bus driver, who started losing sleep over the way Big John was taking advantage of him. Finally he could stand it no longer. He signed up for body building courses, karate, judo, and all that good stuff.By the end of the summer, he had become quite strong; what's more, he felt really good about himself. So on the next Monday, when Big John once again got on the bus and said, "Big John doesn't pay!", the driver stood up, glared back at the passenger, and screamed, "And why not? "With a surprised look on his face, Big John replied, "Big John has a bus pass!"
Management Lesson: "Be sure there is a problem in the first place before working hard to solve one."

Lesson 2:
A sales rep, an administration clerk and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out in a puff of smoke.
The Genie says, "I usually only grant three wishes, so I'll give each of you just one."
"Me first! Me first!" says the admin clerk "I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world." Poof! She's gone.
In astonishment, "Me next! Me next!" says the sales rep. "I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endlesssupply of pina coladas and the love of my life." Poof! He's gone.
"OK, you're up," the Genie says to the manager.
The manager says, "I want those two back in the office after lunch."

Management Lesson: Always let your boss have the first say.

Lesson 3:
A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A small rabbit saw the crow, and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing all daylong?"
The crow answered: "Sure, why not." So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested.
All of a sudden a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.
Management Lesson:To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high.
Lesson 4:
A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, "but I haven't got the energy."
"Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?" replied the bull. They're packed with nutrients."
The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.
Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree. He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.
Management Lesson: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there!

Do Not Disturb..

Lately, I was harassed by more than 10 unnecessary push messages being sent daily, having download links for ringtones, wallpapers, contests and everything under the sun!! My mistake!! I had activated push messages service by mistake. So I rectified it by disabling the service and thus saving myself from this torture.

But that’s not all.. There are still lot of messages being sent by Hutch and yeah.. how can I forget those unwanted automated promotional calls. Clever people!! The call is from different number each time. The worst part is that if you disconnect any call from some numbers", you keep getting a call from the same number once in 6 hours till u receive it. Imagine, on a holiday, you are sleeping peacefully and you get a call. Thinking that it’s from someone you know, happily you grab your cell and what you get to listen is “Kabhie kabhie mere dil mein khayal aata hai...... Is gaane ko apni caller tune set karne liye keval 20 rupaye prati mahina.... bla.. bla....” Sooooooo annoying!!!

Tired of all this I decided to call Hutch Customer Care. Fortunately, I didn’t had to wait for hours to talk to a customer care executive (unlike last time, well, it was around an year back, I had to wait for 1 hour and I stopped calling to 111 after that). The solution given was either to register here or to send DND to 111. Hutch claims to stop sending promotional SMSes and they won’t disturb with their automated calls either. A blessing indeed!! Without wasting a minute, at 5:02pm I sent DND to 111.

5:03pm (from 111) -> We respect your privacy. Please give us 72 hours to include your number on our Do Not Disturb list. Thank you.

5:04pm (from 6789) -> Hi!! You just spoke to Babu Kumar. We’d like to know if you were satisfied with the experience. Reply Toll Free with Yes or No.

And I thought that they won’t DISTURB!!Huh!! Anyway, replied with a Yes because Mr Babu Kumar helped me out by telling about DND te fer main socheya ki chalo hun taan theek hai, relaxo, hun nhi khange dimag.. isle me = very very happy.. with two capital V’s and a capital H.

5:06pm (from 6789) -> Thank you for your feedback. We would like to know more about the experience. Would you like to respond to a few questions? Reply Toll Free with Yes or No.

Oye!! hudd ho gyi!! I am telling not to disturb te eh ne ki fir msg te msg bheji jande ne. Chalo koi na, I sent NO to 6789 and there popped a message again:

Thank you for your feedback. If there is more you’d like to share please SMS your comments Toll Free to 6790.

Gosh!! Limit hundi hai kisi gal di!! Hutch.. Pleaseeeeeee.. DO NOT DISTURB!!

Let’s see how much you respect customer privacy. Will update after “72” hours..

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows rocks..

This is my first review and I am not a professional as far as the reviews are concerned. So, the readers (though very few) please bear with me.

I took the book on the day it was released, much awaited “21st July” and finished reading it by 22nd July, 8am. J.K.Rowling has definitely met reader’s expectations with her seventh and the last book “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”. It is awesome. Cool plot. Deep storyline. Harry has been fantastic and mind blowing, as always. Ron and Hermione showed their bravery and it matches to that of Harry. So many characters died, disappointing many fans. But as Dumbledore would have said “It was all for the greater good”. There are many twists and surprises many which you couldn’t have imagined. The final duel between Voldemort and Harry was short. But it is ok. There are some 50 pages in between where Harry doesn’t know what to do and you might feel little bored and frustrated just like Ron.

All this time we had been thinking that the Harry Potter series is about Harry. Well, is it? Not exactly. I feel it wasn’t Harry’s game, it was Dumbledore’s game. Right from the beginning till the end, he was the wizard knowing everything, knowing all the details. He knew when exactly what was going to happen. It seems that JKR has written the series on Dumbledore’s command. He is the real narrator of the series.

As expected by many of us, Severus Snape turned out to be on Harry’s side. The Prince’s Tale is the best chapter in the whole book. An eye opener, for those who doubted Snape, and thus Dumbledore. It almost made me cry. Snape had been figured as a negative character in the series and here we come to know the real Snape, who loved Lily more than anything. His love for her was so great that he was ready to sacrifice his life for James’ son. The same James whom he hated a lot, but his love for Lily was much more than his hatred for James . The most touching lines were on page 553 when Nigellus calls Hermoine as Mudblood and snape tells not to use this word. The same Snape ,who was shown hating so-called Mudbloods in the other books of the series.

I think the Half Blood Prince is a true masterpiece, and the Deathly Hallows comes close to it. I would give the book 8/10

Spoilers: (Read at your own risk)
I have a few doubts and all the Potter fans are welcomed to clear these .
1.Hermione said that she obliviated her parents(page 84) and then when they are in the muggle restaurant with the Death Eaters(Page 139) she says that she only knows the theory and has never practiced it.
2. Ron suddenly speaks parseltongue and opens the chamber. (Page 501)

"If You Don't Get What You Want, It's Because There Is Something Good To Come."

Sometimes when we don't get "something" that we really want but we can never have, while waiting for "something good" we hope that this "something good" is that "something" that we wanted but could never have. Weird na!!

I love my spectacles..

"So, you wear spectacles. What’s the power?” Although the frequency of this question has reduced after I shifted to contact lens, but still I come across this question whenever I wear spectacles or whenever I tell people that I wear contact lens. And after my answer, this question is followed by “Oh My God! Isn’t it too much?”

Often I hear people commenting on my spectacles or on its power. Yes.. I have myopia, and I don’t find it something that has to be given so much of importance by others. I still remember the first time I wore specs and went to school. I was in 4th standard and I got it because it’s hereditary. My parents were upset about it. It wasn’t easy to accept it at that time. And it was much difficult to handle. Every month I would come home with its glass or the broken frame in my hands. I had extra burden of taking care of it every time I would go out to play. Then there were my friends making me feel more conscious about it and reminding me again and again that I wear specs. I have a cousin, four years elder to me. He would tease me by calling me chashmish. I never liked him. All these things don’t matter now and I don’t have any grudge on him now. But at that time I was a 9 years old kid, who was made to feel that she’s different from others because at the age of 9 she wears spectacles. A kid, who was made to feel that she is inferior to others because she has to carry a plastic frame with glasses fitted inside it wherever she goes. At that time, whenever my friends made fun of me, my cousin teased me or my relatives exclaimed that I am a girl and I have to wear spectacles, I would ask God why I don’t have normal sight like my other friends. I felt people were being insensitive by not watching their remarks in front of a small girl or by showing sympathy which would make me feel even worse. Or maybe I was too sensitive.

It has been 13 years of experience with myopia now and I am not a 9 year old kid. I have learnt to carry my spectacles wherever I go. I started using contact lens because of the heavy weight of the glasses. But I still love my spectacles for a simple reason that I am more comfortable wearing them. I have learnt to manage them well. I don’t break the glasses or the frame every month. :) Those comments and those exclamations don’t matter anymore. Maybe I am used to it or maybe I don’t care anymore. In fact I find it very funny. And yes.. I laugh when someone calls me chashmish. I can't imagine my life without my spectacles. I LOVE MY SPECTACLES.

HP kid in me..


A bad teacher is one who believes that all students are useless.
An average teacher is one who can recognize the talent in the student, but do nothing to help it grow.
A good teacher is one who can help the talent in the student grow.
A great teacher is one who sees great potential in each student and nurtures each one of them, relentlessly, without losing faith in the student.

Nobody in this world is worth your tears.If they are,they wont make you cry.
--STUPID PERSON!! Whoever wrote this.. You cry for those for whom you care and who you think are worth being cared and cried for.

The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.
--Hmmm... yeah,very right!!

There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power.
--And how is it so?

Waste not fresh tears over old grief.
--Yup.. Waste them on new griefs!!

Tears at times have all the weight of speech.
--That's why we feel lighter after crying as all the weight is shed!!

We need never be ashamed of our tears.

An Inspiring Speech..

19-02-2006 : Bangalore

Part of the speech..

Dear respected religious leaders and the members who have assembled here, I have put forth a three dimensional approach for the evolution of an enlightened society. Can the art of living with multiple religion congregated here will lead to evolving a system that can capture and propagate an action oriented doctrine on the evolution of enlightened citizen. This I will call it as an ýOrganization of Spiritual Glad tidingsý, if you all agree. Spiritual Glad tidings can have the following missions:

1. Evolving an enlightened society with three components: Education with value system, religion transforming into a spiritual force and economic development for removal of societal imbalances

2. Using the music as a binding force of violent hearts throughout the world.

3. Making fine arts as a part of the curriculum in the secondary and university education.

4. Celebration of inter-religious festivals: Every religious organization should celebrate the festivals of other religions.

5. Multi-religious community projects: For example, a religious school should welcome 20% poor boys and girls from other religions.

6. Education in and with the ambience of unity of religions: The education system must be able to draw the best thoughts from all religions and promote among all the participants. A healthy exchange of ideas and promotion of a common goal among all participants to become a useful member of the entire society radiating harmony everywhere should be the goal of the entire education process.

7. Interfaith dialogue: In my childhood days when I was 10 years old I used to see my father meet his friends Pakshi Lakshmana Shastrigal. A great Hindu devotee of Rameshwaram Siva Temple with the priesthood and Rev. Father Bodal who built Rameshwaram Islandýs first church. In childhood I am indeed blessed to hear the discussion of the great three. At least once in a week they met and discussed on integration of thoughts from Holy Quran, Old Testament of Bible and Bhagavat Gita of Mahabaratha. From the essence of their discussions, I learnt that ýwhatever religion you belong to, the path you select will lead you to bliss, based on your good action. Life should be just like a flower that gives fragrance and beauty in the morning and it falls silently to the ground in the evening from where it was createdý.

Once four students were partying till late night and didn't study for the test which was scheduled for the next day. In the morning, they thought of a plan. They made themselves look as dirty and weird as they could with grease and dirt. Then they went up to the dean and said that they had gone to a wedding last night and on their return, the tyre of their car burst and they had to push the car all the way back and that they were not in condition to appear for the test. The Dean was a just person so he said that they can have a retest after three days. They said they were ready.

On the third day they appeared before the dean. The Dean said that as this was a special condition all four were required to be in separate rooms for the test. They all agreed as they had prepared well in last three days.

The test consisted of two question with a total marks of 100.

Q1. Write down your Names. (2 marks)

Q2. Which tyre burst ? (98 marks)

Look beyond what you see..

Have you seen The Lion King 3: Hakuna Matata? If you have, do you remember Rafiki telling Timon “Look beyond what you see.”? Timon took the meaning literally and this was really funny to see. But the quote “Look beyond what you see” has a deep meaning.
Hmmm.. Wondering what I am talking about? Well.. I believe that there is something positive, something worth adopting in your life, in every single creature in this world ,which we might overlook at first. So we just need to look beyond what we see.

Let’s talk about people around us. Even those people whom we might not like, have something good in them, something worth appreciating, and something that we might not see because we don’t want to see, but its still there. It’s just the matter of looking in the right way.

Another message conveyed by this quote is that that things/situations are not always as they look. Many times we are deceived by the situations. We "think" about people and judge them biased by the circumstances.. and many times biased by other's opinion about them. However, knowing them can change opinion about them as we come to know how actually that person is.

Look beyond what you see and then you can see the beautiful colors of life everywhere.

First Impression

When we meet someone for the first time, we are left with an impression of that person.. Yes.. "The first impression." Someone (don't ask me who!) has said "First impression is the last impression." Should it be so? Not really!

When we go to purchase a book and we don't have much time, then we just judge the book from its cover and its preface. If it’s good, we assume that the book is good and we purchase it. We don't go through the contents. The actual worth of the book is known only after going through it.

So is the case with humans. Meeting someone for just 10 minutes and judging the person, based on the looks or the way he carries himself, isn’t fair. We might not like this, but more often than not out first judgment about a person is misleading. Looks deceive. People pretend to be what they are not. One needs to be careful.

We would like to categorize ourselves in the category of people who don’t go by first impressions. Still the fact remains that we all are influenced by the first impressions. No doubt..our brain needs to work a lot!! Be careful in letting the first impression to be the last impression.

Live and let live..


A wonderful quote from The Alchemist. And quiet true, isn't it? People are more interested in other's life than their own. I wonder why they can't mind their own business. Many times I am surrounded by people who just want to talk about how others should be. Jobless people!! Why do such people expect everyone to behave and be the way they want them to be? They don't know someone and they start telling stories about them just for fun. There is a difference between having fun and making fun of others. A thin line that shouldn't be crossed. Why do people have misconception about them that they are the best? Why do they think they are superior to others? They comment about the whole world but why don't they ever bother to watch themselves. They feel they are correct. Well.. Everyone thinks that he or she is correct. If not, Osama Bin Laden wouldn't have attacked twin towers. Even he thought he was right. But does what he thinks justify what he did? Of course not. So can we justify people hurting others with their cheap talks because they think they are right? A big no.. with a capital N....

Instead of commenting about others and interfering in their life they should do something to come out of such low standard talks. When someone is not interfering in their life then why should they? Why do they bother about someone (they don't like) so much that they make that person center of their talks. They don't like someone.. Fine.. Stay away.. Why to create a nuisance when the other person is not troubling? They get down to any level. One should first see where he or she stands and then pass judgments about others. No one is perfect. There is always a scope for improvement. Instead of talking about how wrong others are, one should spend some time thinking on where he or she is going wrong. Get a life losers!! Have an idea about your nowhere headed life rather than finding faults in people and unnecessarily commenting on them. Just live and let live!!
