Something made me question ..

When will people understand that terrorism has no religion? 

Trigger: four different instants in a day.

When will people be educated enough to understand that education is just not having a degree in hands?

Trigger: two educated people talking about responsibilities of educated people, not realizing they are also among them.

Just wondering..

Why do people sometimes give unnecessary explanation when it is neither asked nor required? Does this avoid misunderstandings? Or does this make things look fishy? :)

Shubh Deepavali..

Bursting crackers, lot of noise, lights all around - a few synonyms for diwali- 'the festival of lights'. 

Ever thought about what is shown in this video? Before you burst crackers, think about these kids, some aasthma patients around you, pollution caused. 

Crackers are not the only way of experiencing joy. Diwali is a lot more than bursting crackers. Why not illuminate someone's life this diwali?

Wish you a safe and wonderful diwali.

A walk across a cemetery..

Ew! I don’t like to talk or listen about 'it'. I had never thought about 'it' little more than a month back. Then by chance (was it just a chance?) I walked across a cemetery for the first time in my life. I wasn’t scared(reminded me of someone who is scared of ghosts and so doesn't want to visit a cemetery). It was a strange feeling walking across a place where so many dead people have been buried. Artistic tombstones. Beautiful flower arrangements. Implicit silence in the breeze. Pleasant, yet unpleasant. It was there that i thought about 'it'. Yes.. 'it' is death.. There were lots of thoughts in mind. I started thinking something really creepy. 'What if I die in next 10 minutes? How will i spend last 10 minutes of my life?' And I actually planned it before leaving from there :) My 'to-be-done' list was long. Certain things which we take for granted reveal their importance when we think something like this. Well, here i am, blogging after days and trying to express something which i don't know how to. It would be irresponsible on my part to attempt to explain what i felt that time. Some things are better not explained.

The roadside painter..

I was walking on one of the busiest streets, in a land far away from mine, with a friend when we saw that some people had gathered to see something. We looked with curiosity what made so many people gather there. There was a beautiful painting drawn on the road. It was giving a 3-D effect. It was so beautiful that I wondered if this is what heaven looks like. He had kept two bowls in which people were putting money. There were a few other framed paintings which he had kept there.
I looked at the painter. I wondered what such a talented person is doing on a roadside. Probably he would have searched for a job, couldn’t find any, gave up hope to find any and finally ended up there-in that street, for earning something at least for that day. I don’t know why he was there. His eyes didn’t look away from the painting, not for a single moment. His hands were busy drawing with the colourful chalk pieces. A shower of a few minutes could have wiped away his effort of hours. Yet, he was doing everything with so much of perfection. He was enjoying his work in spite of not being recognized the way he should be. His whole concentration was into his work as if nothing existed beyond it. I was reminded of the quote ‘Do your job so well that the God and the Angels in the heaven are moved to say- here lives a person who did is his job so well as if only he was destined to do it’. And I could see a perfect example of such a person right in front of me. He was destined to be there and enjoying whatever he was doing. It was not only a necessity for him but also his reason of living because he loved doing it.
As we walked further, I saw a handicapped man exhibiting his talent with a ball. Then a very thin and short lady sitting at a corner and singing beautifully. Her voice was loud and clear. Don’t know why but I felt she was suffering from some disease (I remember seeing her there many times before). A few steps further were a band of people playing lovely music. Some people say this is the way these people beg. Can we call it begging? Isn’t it an insult to their talent? How many of us have these talents? How many of us have the ability to admire and respect their talent? We have a lot to learn from them, from their persistence.  
Then I asked my friend the question that was still haunting me and i wanted someone to answer it- ‘why are these people here in spite of having so much of talent?’ The answer I got was- ‘This is what you call life.’
Yes, this is life for them. It isn't always fair. I turned back and looked at that street full of talented people. As we walked further, a few drops of water rolled down.

Smile :)

Smile is one of the best expressions that God has given us. It feels so good to see someone with a cheerful smile. A genuine smile sets everything right. 

How about a smile in silence? They (don’t ask me who) say “If you smile when nobody is around you, you really mean it.” Have you ever found yourself smiling like this? I have! I was thinking about an incident in recent past and before I could realize, I found myself smiling. I wondered what made me smile. It was the everlasting joy of those memories that my smile expressed.

How about silence in a smile? Smile, can be mysterious too, with lots of secrets. A silent smile speaks its own language. What do you do when someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer? I just smile. What do you do when someone you respect, unintentionally, says something that isn’t pleasant to listen? I just smile. What do you do when someone asks you something that you can’t answer? I just smile.

What if your smile is misread and misunderstood? Oops, it hurts! Once I made someone angry with my smile (Hey, I didn’t want to hurt you, it wasn't intentional). So just be careful with the sweet smile on your face. 

Don’t forget to give a smile to a person who you think doesn’t like to smile. It looks strange when your smile is not reciprocated. But remember, nobody needs a smile so much as those who have none left to give.
Smile, even when you are hurt. Look at the mysterious sky, beautiful flowers, wonderful creatures or anything that makes you smile. It makes you feel better. Smile, I feel, is the best solution for anything that isn't right.
Keep smiling :)

The 3 mistakes of my life..

Reading '5 point someone' was not a bad experience, but 'one night at call centre' was a waste of couple of hours i spent on reading it. And now CB is back with his 3rd book(some people call it 3rd mistake of his life). I won't go into the detail of the story. A lot has been said and written about it already.
When I read first few pages, i wanted to like it. Even tough the plot reminded me of 5.sum1, especially the struggle in life of young people who want to prove themselves, I liked it when he showed his prospective about religion and politics in our country. Also, he narrated the cricket episodes in such a way which show that cricket is also a religion in our country. But few more pages proved me wrong. Everything is messed up. Eathquake, cricket, a foreign trip, Gujrat roits, a love affair, business. It is more like a bollywood melodramatic cum romantic cum action movie. The end is just too dramatic. The last scenes (ya, not pages) have too much of unnecessary violence. And I am amazed (not pleasantly) that those 3 guys wanted to save a small guy because they saw him as a future batsman in Indian cricket team and not because they had some sympathy with him that he is a small muslim boy whose parents have been killed. What if he was not a cricketer in making, not a national treasure as they saw him? Would they have sacrificed him? CB's this way of patriotism disappointed me.
Nevertheless, I liked the description of political parties, their attitude and their stand on religion.

Be punctual..

'Problem with being punctual is that there is nobody to appreciate you.'

Huh... Why is it that people don't value other's time? I mean, if you don't value your time, it is fine, no problem, it is your life, your time. But when it comes to wasting other's time, should one not be sensitive enough?

10 things I am missing..

For the first time in life, I am:
  • Away from home
  • Experimenting with cooking (and still alive!! Yippeeeeeeeeee!!)
  • Getting up at 5:45AM on listening to alarm!! (now this must be really shocking for people who know I need a big, loud ghadiyal to wake up :D )
Life has become monotonous. I am missing so many things here. Top 10 in the list are:
  1. Momy, papa and grandma
  2. My brother and his crazy dialogues :D
  3. Yummy yummy mom-special food
  4. My room
  5. Nonumonu …. Relax… it’s my teddy bear
  6. Archana
  7. Puchi … Another teddy bear…
  8. My guitar classes
  9. [Reserved for future]
  10. Bangalore autos (sometimes you get addicted to things you hate the most)
By the way.. There is a colleague here who looks and walks like a zombie. No expressions. Doesn't blink his eyes. Doesn't smile. And can you imagine how he says bye? He walks out of the room, doesn't even look at you, and after keeping one step outside the room says 'bye' in the worst possible way anyone can say bye. I didn't know such a simple, sweet and beautiful word like bye can be said so horribly!!
'Bye' - i said it is simple, sweet and beautiful. Well.. leave the context above. Sometimes it hurts to say goodbye, doesn't it? Then it is not simple. Neither sweet, nor beautiful! It becomes complicated. Now before this post becomes complicated, i should say bye :)

Kung Fu Panda

At last, I saw Kung Fu Panda!! Awesome movie. Predictable storyline, but it is beautifully directed and the dialogues are written in such a wonderful manner that in spite of predicting the story correctly, you will still enjoy it. Story goes something like this: A panda named Po is chosen by a wise old turtle, Master Ooguay, as the dragon warrior. This is strange as viewed by his martial-arts teacher, Shifu, and the Furious Five: Tigress, Monkey, Mantis, Viper, and Crane because Po is fat and unorganized person with almost nil self confidence. In the end, Po defeats the Tai Lung, the evil leopard and emerges as a winner- as a real dragon warrior. The wisdom in the conversation of the characters is what makes this movie beautiful. Few of my favourite lines in the movie are:
1. Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.
That is why it is called the present. Master Ooguay said this to Po. I have heard it before too. I liked the tone and the way he said it. The shine in Po’s eyes and Ooguay’s tone makes you believe in it.
2. One often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it.
Ooguay said it when he saw something happening in future with his vision and Shifu wanted to avoid it. I am just wondering is it not the same destiny that makes you take the road to avoid itself and then it meets you!!
3. There are no accidents.
Ooguay said it thrice. I know because Shifu counted it! Everything happens for a reason, isn't it so? If things are in the wrong direction, then maybe life is teaching you something.
4. There is no secret ingredient.
Po’s father said it to him when he told him that the secret ingredient of his special noodles is ‘nothing’. He said ‘Things become special because people believe them to be special.’

Smoking is injurious to health!!

I wanted to post this long back but somehow it skipped my mind. As you all know, smoking is injurious to health. Enough has been said and written about this, so I don't feel the necessity to write the same stuff again.
Anybody interested in reading about the harmful effects of smoking, please read this or this or this .
If you are a chain smoker, please take care that it can be annoying (read as irritating and suffocating) for people around you!! And moreover you are knowingly playing with your own life. Have mercy on yourself, if not on anyone else.
Reason for this post: It is annoying(with a capital A!!!) to work with people addicted to smoking.

By The River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept

After reading Alchemist and The Zahir, I didn’t find this story too impressive, it’s simple; a girl gets a call from a childhood friend to attend his lecture. She meets him and the bonding gets strengthened. Then she comes to know that he has the ability to create miracles and cure people and he is now in the seminary. He talks about the feminine side of God and spirituality. Now he is torn between his love for her and his responsibility towards fellow humans. By the time she decides to support him in his responsibility, he gives up his ability to be with her. So she runs away from him and writes the story sitting by the side of the river Piedra.

The story line has nothing new to it. We all have heard such stories before. But Paulo makes it special with his words, the way he puts everything and the way he describes the emotions of the characters.

It is about a guy who is torn between love and responsibility. He had to make a choice. A tough one. It is about a girl who didn’t want to fall in love because she knows the risks involved and thus, doesn’t want to suffer. But yet she falls in love and is ready to take risks and suffer. Have you ever come across someone who says that he/she loves so-and-so person but knows that they can’t be together in future and yet he/she loves that special so-and-so in his/her life? Doesn’t it make you wonder why they want to complicate their life? In my opinion, it sounds logical that if you are so sure you can’t be together, you shouldn’t mess your life with emotions like this. Then why does one fall in love in such a situation knowing all the circumstances? This is what this book talks about. Read it to find out more. 

The description of the “Other” in us which stops us from taking some firm decisions is good. I felt this “Other” represents someone capable of taking those decisions which sometimes we don’t take because of the circumstances around us, I mean, if you forget all the circumstances, you will take decisions like that “Other” and not the way you take now.

I was amazed that Paulo gave it a happy ending. Not that I don’t like happy endings. In fact, I love happy stories. But it would have been good if he had ended it with Pilar sitting by the side of river Piedra. It would have been close to reality of those who go through the emotions that Pilar went through in the middle of the story. Paulo says in this book, all love stories are same. Yes, the emotions maybe are same, but then not all love stories have a happy ending. Maybe he should have given it a thought.

Lessons from a story..

"You can get used to anything."
Read it in the book I finished reading today. Isn't it true? You can actually get used to anything and get over anything, no matter how difficult it might appear initially. It's just the matter of time. The pain remits.
The same book has these lines:
"It's important in life to conclude things properly. Only then you can let go. Otherwise you are left with words you should have said but never did, and your heart is heavy with remorse."
Ah.. Unsaid words.. words which we would like to tell someone in a particular situation, but haven’t said.. I remember once I wanted to tell someone "Y don't you just get lost from here?" but I didn't say, I thought it would be rude :-) and once....... hmmm.. It will be a long list if I start writing all I wanted to say once upon a time. Demerits of speaking less and thinking more!!
Just for information, the book is "Life of Pi" -interesting book.

Just wondering..

Why is watching stars twinkling in the sky on a cloudless night so amazing??

I don't care.. Or do I?

I was thinking about something and said to myself "I don't care!!"
The moment these words came out of my mouth, a conversation started between me and VOMIB. VOMIB is my closest friend. Let me introduce VOMIB to you all. It’s “Voice Of My Intelligent Brain”. The conversation went on something like this:
Me: I don't care!!
VOMIB: Oh really?
Me: Of course, I don’t care. Why should I? I am not at all bothered about it VOMIB..
VOMIB: Think once again. Are you sure you don’t care?
Me(after a few seconds): Yup.. I am dead sure..
VOMIB: Well.. If you really don’t care then do you need to justify it to yourself by telling yourself that you don’t care???
Me: You are confusing me VOMIB..
VOMIB: I am not confusing you.. You said it doesn’t bother you. But if it really doesn’t bother you, why did you think about it? You just want to convince yourself that you don’t care.. But you can’t change the truth by denying it. Face the reality sweety. You do care.. If you think by telling a lie to yourself this thought will not come to your mind again, you are wrong..
Me: Oh VOMIB, why are you confusing me? You know something.. I don’t care what you think..
VOMIB (laughing): There you are again.. You do care.. :-)
Me: :-?

I like green colour n my mind turned out to be green too!!

Your Mind is Green

Of all the mind types, yours has the most balance.

You are able to see all sides to most problems and are a good problem solver.

You need time to work out your thoughts, but you don't get stuck in bad thinking patterns.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about the future, philosophy, and relationships (both personal and intellectual).

DieSEL or PETroL - Ambigram

Thursday, March 13, 2008


I am addicted to this "shift+del" shortcut.. For those of you who don't know, if you select a file and press shift key along with delete key, the file is deleted permanently from pc without using recycle bin. From the day I have learnt about this shortcut, I never sent any file to recycle bin for deleting it permanently. I had never landed in any trouble until some 10 days back. A friend had given me more than 150 photos and told me to write them on a CD. As memory card of phone had very less space for photos, it was decided that those photos will be deleted from memory card. I DON'T KNOW WHEN, HOW AND WHY DID I DELETED THOSE HOTOS USING SHIFT+DEL. I discovered it only when I started searching for the photos for copying them to a cd at 11pm!!! And then I was like...................................................... stupid, hor use kar shift+del!!! I was so scared that I didn't get sleep till 3 at night.. Fortunately, my friend (aware of my foolishness) had not deleted those photos even after 15 days and this saved me from scoldings I would have got if they had been deleted from mobile also.
1. DON'T USE SHIFT+DEL.. I won't.. Pakka..
2. DON'T BE LAZY LIKE GARFIELD.. Take backup of photos in a CD as soon as possible.

Ich learne Deutsch!! I am learning German these days.. Its fun.. But the way we all make sentences is ......................amazing ;) I noticed that among the words that i have come across, pineapple is the only word that is same in both Hindi and German. Its called Ananas in both the languages. So I did lil research and found some information here Pineapple is called Ananas in so many languages!!

On monday, I was coming back from office in an auto. That autowala looked very sad. I dunno why i am writing this here, maybe coz its in my mind since then.

How can people change so much in just few months?? A friend seems to be someone else now. From someone i knew very well to someone-whom i don't know. I dunno if its good for her or not. Anywayz, itz her life!!

Sweet memories...

Yesterday, while coming back from office in auto, I started thinking about my first school and the first person I was reminded of was my rikshaw wala. His name was Prakash. We used to call him Prakash uncle. From nursery till my third standard, I went in his rikshaw. Actually, it was a baggi.. My classmates, Poonam and Anshul (I hope I got his name correct) were also in the same rickshaw. It was fun travelling from home to school n then back home. We were always having fun and I did a few weird things too :) I can’t recollect all of them. Till 3rd standard-- I must be less than 7 years old. You can’t expect a 7 yr old kid to remember everything!!! But owing to my good memory, I remember a few episodes of my childhood life.. All my childhood friends (whom I remember), deserve a mention when I talk about my first school- Blossoms, where I studied till 3rd standard..

My parents tell me that I was a very violent kid :P I scratched my teacher's neck with my nails on the very first day I went to school. I could’t remember her name, so I searched for my Nursery report card:

Signed by Jyoti Rana!! Feels good everytime I read it ;)

One summer afternoon, sun was shining brightly.. Too dramatic, eh?? anyway... me and poonam were doing water transfer.. Her home was near school and she had some water left in her bottle. So she told she would transfer it into my bottle so that if I feel thirsty I can have it. It was a brown coloured bottle. And I kept its cap on the seat of baggi.. You can guess what would have happened next.. Yeah.. all of a sudden, the cap of the bottle jumped out of the baggi, n we were like... OMG!!! I remember being scolded for that.. I think I was in 1st standard then..

I had a great time with Poonam in my childhood. We both shared common interests- painting and craft work. I remember, once for an exhibition, we both made guitar as craft work without each other's knowledge. What a coincidence it was!! Did some crazy stuff also. Once Prakash uncle din’t come to school in time, and me- the weirdo suggested to walk till Poonam’s house!! We told this to anshul(I hope its the right name) and he also told he will go to his aunt’s house- by walk. And then we- the brave kids of Blossoms, went on a march!! Somehow we managed to search the route and reach her house, from where I called at home. I went home from there and then Prakash uncle came searching for us. Next day Anshul’s mom told he had fever, and everyone looked at me—the culprit.

I had another friend Aditi, who left school after 1st or 2nd I think and went to Delhi. We played lot of imaginative games together, sitting on the first bench!! We were in same school from 8th again, but she dint remember me!! Must say.. she had a poor memory, just like Radhika!!

Then there was Rosen- with whom I started my schooling, Jasleen- I remember her birthday party where we saw a movie n had fun, Rupinder-who joined us lil late, Aastha- whoz height was same as me and had left school before me and rest of the names are lil difficult to recollect. Childhood days are golden days. Herez a memorable group snap from our Chandigarh trip when we were in 3rd standard..

Yellow Roses...

I love colours.. This one is an oil painting on canvas.. and it is almost 8 years old!! Hmmm.... I should start painting again... After all, painting is my first love :)

Why do they tell everything??

They are deeper than any of the oceans.. They are wider than the sky.. They contain millions of emotions in them like there are fishes in an ocean and birds in the sky.. They have water- signifying the purest liquid in world.. They have fire- the rage which can burn someone down to ashes.. When a mother looks at her child, there’s nothing comparable to the warmth in them.. When you look at your beloved, you feel heaven in them.. No matter how much you try to hide something, they never lie.. Eyes.. eyes.. mischievous eyes.. mysterious eyes.. Why do they tell everything??

Here are beautifully sung lines from Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's song Aafreen:

aaNkheN dekhii to maiN dekhtaa rah gayaa

jaam do aur donon hii do aatishaha

ankheN yaa maikade ke ye do baab haiN

aankheN inko kahuuN yaa kahuuN Khvaab haiN

aankheN niichii hu’iiN to hayaa ban gayiiN

aankheN uuNchii hu’iiN to du’aa ban gayiiN

aankheN uTh kar jhuki to adda ban gayiiN

aankheN jhuk kar uThiiN to qadaa ban gayiiN

aankheN jin meN haiN qaid aasmaan-o-zamiiN

nargisii nargisii

surmayii surmayii

Everything in life happens for a reason..

Sometimes we know the reason..
But sometimes we don't know what the reason is!
And many times a reason doesn’t have a reason to be understood!!
So in such a situation its better to keep quiet than to question! :)

Khwaish bani haqiqat..

I still can't believe it!!!! I had a wish which I mentioned here.... and it isnt just a wish now :)
One day I happened to listen a friend’s friend playing guitar over phone and I was reminded of my childhood wish to learn to play guitar. Next day I started searching for a good music school. Fortunately, I found one and registered there... So now......... I am learning to play guitar :) :) :) I took a brown guitar, black was also good but I liked this one more.. It’s an amazing experience and fun learning it... I have to start leaning chords properly.. Hopefully i will improve in coming months.. M loving it!!!
