Being Me and Other Things

When I work up I was still in shock! What a horrible dream it was. I checked the date on my phone and then felt the relief. I still had a little more than two months on hand. What did I dream you ask? I know, I know it’s in the title, but I can still pretend that you guys don’t know the subject of my dream right?Okay, I dreamt that I woke up and found out that The Hobbit – The Battle of The Five Armies had already been released…. A month ago! And here I was with all the world talking about how great the movie was and how touching was its ending and so on. And everybody was sporting some or the other The Hobbit merchandise and people everywhere were quoting dialogues from the movie! A...

Because no one else is quoting my quotes I thought I'd quote them myself! ;) A day spent in action is better than a day spent in thoughts.Everything happens for a reason. And sometimes the reason is just to annoy you!If life doesn't suck, it regurgitates.Learning is easy, it's unlearning that makes life a challenge.With great power comes great electricity bills!Freedom and bondage are sometimes only a matter of perception.Follow your dreams, but don't fall off the edge.Do not pickle your regrets, they will just turn sour....

All this hullabaloo about the white tiger killing a boy who fell into the tiger's enclosure made me wonder about so many things.Over hyped media reaction? - Now I know its not every day that a person enters inside a tiger's enclosure in a zoo and never comes out alive. But I do feel that the whole incident was over-sensationalized. As soon as the news was reported the whole of Social Media was flooded with pictures and videos and various stories of what actually happened.The Blame Game - This one was the most amusing aftermath. Some were blaming the tiger, others the zoo authorities, some the boy who jumped in, some the by-standers. There were memes and slogans and jokes and articles and mis...

Once upon a time there was spider. Lets call him Silly. Now one day, Silly the spider fell from his web, down on the floor. So Silly crawled towards the nearest wall and started climbing it. Silly must have just gotten some two feet above when he missed a step(well spiders have 8 legs, one of them is bound to go wrong!) and fell back down again. But Silly was not in the least perturbed by his fall, he began his endeavor all over again. And this time Silly managed to go beyond 5 feet and he could see his web glistening. Eagerly he sped his way up, little aware of another drop waiting him. And drop he did. This drop left him disoriented but not disheartened. And again he began his arduous labo...

After a very long time, I woke up at the first light of the day without the assistance of my alarm or my mom waking me up! Okay, maybe not the first light, more like the second or the third light!!! Anyways, I woke up before the sunrise, and what a wonderful feeling it was.Looking out the window, I could see the light creeping up upon a sleepy world, and that's when I decided to catch the sunrise. So I tip toed out to my balcony and peered outside, directing my gaze towards the East. And all I saw was Neem leaves! A Neem tree was blocking my view. Not being the one to be easily disheartened I ran up a flight of stairs to go to my terrace. And again,  I expectantly looked towards the Eas...

Some more quotes:The good in you should not be afraid of the bad in others.Past may affect the Future, but never let it define the Future.Let freedom not be a bondage.Closing your eyes towards the problems does not make them disappear.Folly and Wisdom are often defined by their results.Being practical is not always being selfish, being selfish is not always practical.Love, forgiveness and compassion can never be forced....

Once upon a time there were two sisters, Helta and Skelta. They had the most active minds of any time. There wasn't a single thought, word or action that could escape the endless loop of their minds. Helta made sure nothing ever came out from the state of constant confusion and Skelta did her best to keep everything under endless misdirection. They lived in a far off end in a dark damp cave.Many brave men and women who had the misfortunes of crossing the sisters' cave had fallen under their spell and met dirty ends. In a village near by stayed an old lady, who was aware of what happened to all those who had tried to cross the cursed cave. She would try to stop them, her own villagers as well...

As a school going kid I had studied about the Indus Valley Civilization, how an advanced human community formed a life worth living. Coming back to current times there is barely anything civilized left in our country. Be it pushing and pulling to get into a bus or pepper spraying in the parliament, we Indians just don't like to behave. Now I am not saying every single Indian is ill-mannered but I do say that we tend to take our conduct lightly. And we have been smart enough to weave our this lack of social grace into a system.People will not budge with a polite 'excuse me' but if you yell any variation of 'bhai aagha khaso ne' you'll see quick action. Greeting anyone 'good morning' or 'good ...

Few more...Ideals should ideally be left in the textbook.What goes up, comes down; only if it has lost the reason to go further up.Its not about being different, its about being better.Beware the Leap of Blind Faith.Many relations turn sour not because of lack of love, but because of lack of acceptance.Laughter is also the best vaccine!...

Dear Girls,If you marry a rich man, be prepared to deal with commoditization.If you marry a popular man, be prepared to deal with a tall ego.If you marry a handsome man, be prepared to deal with vanity.If you marry an over-achiever, be prepared to be outsmarted.But if you marry a God fearing man, be prepared for a journey of a lifetime....

We the people of today's world have evolved into a curious species. We are the only living creatures who seek instant gratification. The art of creating a pleasurable feeling on the spur of a moment, the habit of being more impulsive and the idea of putting one's self before everything else. We no longer think before acting; we want it, we get it without sparing a thought towards how it would affect anyone else. All we care about is our feeling good, even if it is at the cost of others, even if it is at the cost of our integrity. So now one doesn't think before getting into a relationship, for it looks gratifying at that time. One doesn't think before cheating(whether at workplace or in a re...

The forgery of fear taking control Feelings clouding the heart It takes more than yourself To come out of the dark Mistakes repeated with higher stakes Masters of deceit rule the life Alone you wont overcome However long you strive Fraction, friction, fabrication, facade And a cocktail of misplaced expectations Alone, all alone how long to drag Sooner or later, give way to supplication Divine assistance! Divine assistance! Is what we need, Divine assistance! Divine assistance! The only way to succeed....

Here's another list of quotes...Don't confuse being calm with being inactive.Rules are meant to shape, laws are meant to chisel.If you can't do it perfect, don't take it up.The less you bring your feelings along, the less the chances of getting hurt.Don't measure a person on the scales of your prejudices.Ideals differ from man to man.Don't wait for your death to give people a chance to say good things about you.Enjoy the fruit while its ripe....

 Antidisestablishmentarianism. A word that means to oppose disestablishment. And to disestablish something means to end its establishment. So basically its the opposition to change something that was already there but is now to be removed. Still confused?Let me explain antidisestablishmentarianism in an Indian context. India is a nation full of contrary ideologies. Where every thought and idea is equally opposed followed by another group opposing the opposers, the chain goes on and on. When some law or idea or new culture is being established we oppose the establishment. Later when due to too much opposition the law/idea/culture is being disestablished we oppose the disestablishment as well...

The day began and so did her chores. It was the same routine everyday, wake up, cook breakfast, feed the children, dress them, feed hubby, dress him partly too (she wondered how he managed not to see things that were right in front of his eyes!), and once all left home, the ritual of washing and cleaning began. The dusting and sweeping the house would take the rest of the morning and then it was time for the dirty laundry.And when I say dirty, I mean totally, terribly dirty. How did her kids managed to get so many stains on their clothes was beyond her, and she always dreaded cleaning them afterwards. Today again was no different. As she carried the hamper of dirty clothing towards the washi...
