"I am telling you, one day you will be as successful as your dad""What if I can't ?""There is nothing you can't do. Its not about where you are, its about where you want to be" That was my grandfather inspiring me when I was 12 years old. I have a very educationally rich background. Both of my grandparents were teachers, an uncle who has an MBA apart from his engineering degree, an aunt who is a PhD in Mathematics and she got an award from the President for her research paper. And, then there is my father who is the eldest in the family and probably the only one with a Bachelor's degree. He couldn't get a Master's because of financial constraints, but he more than made up for it by his ...

In case you didn't notice or you did the horrid crime of not visiting my blog, I have taken up the #100HappyDays challenge. Basically I have to post 100 pictures in 100 days of the things that makes me happy. Sounds simple? It isn't so. How many times do you actually get out of bed in search of things that will bring you joy ?That is the exact reason why I am loving this challenge. This makes search for a little bundle of happiness when you are unable to. Sometimes when things don't go right and you are pretty sure you are having 'one of those days' trying thinking of the smallest thing that brought a small on your face and that's all it takes to brighten up your dayDay 16 :I finally picked ...

And nobody said it would be.We often put ourselves in difficult position by building up a ‘mental snowball’ in our heads (You know when you over-think everything to the point that you can’t sleep at nights? ) And then there are times when we are too hard on ourselves for not being more successful, for not earning more or for just not getting better grades.  I remember finding my roommate in tears when our result was declared last semester. She was crying because she got a 7.8 GPA instead of the expected 8+ GPA (PS – I had 6.5 GPA :/ )I didn’t know whether to calm her or throw her down the window.I would be lying if I said I wasn't dissappointed with my marks. I was devastated....

Miss Carrie Bradshaw once raised a very controversial question- “Do women just want to be rescued ?”Since we were small, we were told stories about how a boy – a knight with his shining armour would come on his white horse to rescue us and then we would live happily ever after.But, and this is a big but, its 2014 ! And all I see around me are black and white cows with no good looking men on them.Well, to be fair, my knight is miles away from me. He doesn't have a big kingdom and unlimited wealth but works for a big shot multi national company. He has a laptop as his shining armour and has traded his white horse with a swanky black Royal Enfield. We talk / skype for just half hour every...

It is Thursday again and I am back with my 100 Happy Days post. (Don't forget to cue the drums)This week was rather boring since it rained for most of the time and I was stuck at home with chilling cold. I would do anything to see the sun right now, if not that I would totally adjust with some cupcakes.Day 9 :I couldn't stop laughing when I saw this picture. This has been my mantra since I was 2. My mother says no to about 50% of the things I ask and my Dad says no to, well, 0% of the things. Yes, my Dad is often blamed by others for pampering me too much but if he wouldn't then who would ?Day 10 :I saw this adorable pink Casio calculator in a store and I haven't been able to stop thinking a...

I am doing the 100 Happy Days Challenge and this is Week One (cue the drums-  Badada bammm )To be honest, I am loving this challenge. It sort of makes you search for a reason to be happy everyday. There are so many little things in life that can bring us happiness but we always fail to notice.I already posted my Day 1 picture in previous post, so here are the other picturesDay 2 :I found this really cute picture online that just made me smile ear to ear. We fight the most with people who we love the most, but despite of all our anger they are still the most important people in our lives and we would care for them till the world's end.Day 3 :I picked up this book again by Richard Carlson...

I got my passport under the tatkal scheme a few months back, my old one had expired and I needed a new passport urgently to give an exam. Little did I realize, the new 'online' tatkal passport scheme is way more tiring than the actual scheme. When I was preparing my documents for the procedure I was shocked to see there was no complete information on any website. Ofcourse the Passport Seva website was pathetic and gave only half of the information. As a result, I had to go to the passport office in Bhopal around 5 times just to get my application accepted and then it took around 25 days for my passport to arrive. That meant 1 month of just travelling to Bhopal and another month of waiting, I...

When we are born, we are given a clean slate. A simple blank page where we can draw whatever we want to draw. The only problem is, we can't erase any of our mistakes on that paper. Our mistakes live with us forever.I have a big guilty bone in my body, I feel horribly bad when I hurt people intentionally or unintentionally. But that doesn't stop me from making mistakes. I have this thing of lying to people for no logical reason despite of how close or important those people might be for me.I get selective when it comes to telling the truth. I can't for some reason be completely honest with people. I feel if I am telling the complete truth to anyone, I am exposing a vulnerable part of myself t...

I have officially entered the last semester of my engineering and I don't think I could be more happier about that. I have been waiting for this moment since the first day of my college. I know everyday loves their college days and brags about it but for me it has really been a mixed experience. May be because I loved my school too much, and everything compared to that just looks ordinary.This year will have one of the biggest transitions of my life - in six months I am going to start with my first job and I have a lot of things on my list before my joining. I really hope I can do each one of themSo things I hope I can do in these 6 months or 183 days -Learn how to bake Learn how to dri...

With the year coming to an end, I read my post from last new year and it felt like a huge slap on my face. They say you should always be careful of what you wish for, because it might just come true.This is what I wrote last new year -Also,I am not taking up any resolutions this year, I am just going to try and be a better person. Not better in anyone else's eye but myself. This year is going to be about me - I am going to do what I want and say what I need to say. Try and be more independent and stop relying on others. Because the best feeling  in this world is when you don't need anyone else just to be happy.I can proudly tell you that I have become completely independent. I have stop...

After a six month long hiatus, I am finally back to my blog and back to writing. I wouldn't want to bore you with the details but lets just say these last few months have had the most sharp ups and downs I have ever experienced.And that experience has only made me stronger. I realized that no matter what you do and where you go, if you don't have your loved ones beside you, its not worth it. I also realized that sometimes in order to work on your relations, you need to work on yourself first. We are so stuck on pointing out the other person's mistakes that we forget  may be it could be our mistake too somewhere.The main thing I learned from all the bad times was that no matter how you f...

And hello from the most erratic blogger you have ever come across !I have umpteen reasons for not being around here at all but I am going to refrain myself from boring you from the whole story. Basically there were exams then family stuff and then I needed some timeout with a special one. All in all, time well wasted I had say.My life is taking a pretty chaotic turn right now, I have got more on my plate then I can actually chew. But I think I will survive out of it and I will be just fine. Atleast I like to keep my hopes up. There is nothing, absolutely nothing wrong about dreaming big but you should never forget big dreams require big efforts and big sacrifices. A strange thing happen...

We often find our happiness in the people we love.We get so dependent on them that sometimes its easy to get dragged into an emotional state where our mood depends only and only on how people treat us.The self respect and dignity goes because you always put others before you. Not just because you love them but because you think they know better. That they are better than you, which inturn leaves a hell load of anger and frustration inside for everyone around. When in fact its your own fault, people  will only treat you better when you want them too.I couldn't help but wonder how important self love is for every person. When you don't even think you are worth something, you don't deserve it....

This past month has been a series of ups and downs and the heat didnt make it any easier. This heat wave makes me go hyper and I hate it. I have decided I am going to settle in a city where its chilly cold all the time. I had rather be shivering non stop than sweating non stop!Moving over to some good parts of this month, I finally got over one of the biggest fears of my life and I am so proud of it. It was like a birthday gift for myself. Two years ago, I wouldn't have even thought about it. That reminds me, I had my birthday two weeks ago and it was amazing, by amazing I am actually referring to the delicious chocolate almond cake!Though birthdays always remind me of the people I hav...

Last month my 19 year old sister called me up and asked me, “ Main bade hokar kya banungi ?” (What will I be when I grow up). I was baffled, shocked and couldn’t stop laughing when I realized she was actually dead serious. I mean shouldn’t a 19 year old college going student know by now what they want to when they ‘grow up’?I couldn’t help but wonder if she had a valid question and it was not so stupid as it sounded. Most of us have no idea what we really want to be and we are basically growing up every day. Each and every day we get more wiser and more mature ( Well, atleast some do !). And every single day we are actually fighting with the same question – What do you want t...

You reap what you sow. You have to pay for your mistakes at some point of time. But then you get a golden chance, to start fresh with a new beginning. Aren't we all looking for those all the time ?Someone very intelligent once said , "We are stronger than we think we are" and I am willing to believe it. I think we are better than we think we are, we just have to push through our limits and cut off the people trying to hold us down. Everyone has wings, but most of them are too afraid to flap them and fly.A friend of mine recently called me 'delusional', according to them I am thinking so much about my future dreams that I have lost track of the present gut wrenching reality.May be they are ri...

This past month I have been forcing myself to be happy, merely because there was nothing to be sad about. And that lead to a super depressive phase. Well, I had say the mood swings were hard to handle, not for me ofcourse, but for the people around me.Everyone is trying to find their part of happiness in this world. May be they have different definitions for it, but they are trying each and every day. I feel, may be we are wrong in running behind 'happy ever afters', little bundles of joy is what we should be looking for. Those moments of ecstatic joy when you finally buy the new bike you had been dreaming about, when you find the prettiest shoes and they actually fit, when you have...

Regrets and resentments are a part of human nature. These two emotions are so strong they can destroy you from within - undermining the very foundation of self belief. No matter how much we try to run away from them, we certainly can't hide. At some point or the other we are left standing in front of it. But how we deal with these self destroying emotions decide what kind of person we will be in the future.These regrets and resentments always offer us two directions , and I have decided to choose the forward one. We can try to hold on to them as long as we want but that will only induce more anger and even more hatred. Letting go is probably not an easy option, but it is an effective fi...

And those two words explain exactly what I am going through.Sometimes in life, you have to take a few wrong turns to realize the right one was in front of you all along. We have to let go of the fear holding us, flap our wings and fly away. There is nothing wrong in aiming for the sky, but you can't expect to get everything you want when you are not willing to work for it.A wise man once said 'There is no substitute to hardwork' and I second him on that. You can't sleep peacefully everyday and expect the magic fairy to solve all your problems. It takes thousands of sleepless nights and determination to get to the place you always dreamed about.I have always felt the only thing holding us awa...

Because at the end of the day its about finding your own inner voice, finding what makes you happy and finding your true call in life.Point down on a map where you are and where you want to go. Once you have that set, half of the battle is already won. Now you just have to figure out how you are going to get there and what path you want to take to get there. Some use flattery, some resort to lying while some decide to burn their parents's good old money but I am only going to use my hardwork.Though, there will always be some trying to undermine you, telling you you are not good enough, don't let them. They will be doing the exact same thing five years from now while you are touching the skie...

Today is officially the best day of my life. I wouldn't have been this happy if I topped in my college or got into Harvard or MIT, because well there is still a 0.1% possibility that could happen. But the thing that could never happen is me booking a tatkal ticket on the god sent IRCTC.My rivalry with IRCTC goes way back when the tatkal timings were 8:00am-10:00am, I would get up with one eye closed only to find out waiting lists at 8:05 ! I don't know how the railway agents do it. Yes, some of them still go to stations and stand in lines but others book their tickets online only. If IRCTC opens on their systems so easily, why not mine ?It took me a few hit and trials to figure out the right...

Once in a lifetime everyone gets a chance to live world's greatest love story, a fairytale.I feel we do meet the love of our life once, some don't recognize it and some just let it go because they are too afraid of that strong feeling.Or may be because they are too scared to get hurt. But love is all about taking chances. And as they say, if its not crazy mad love, its not love at all. It will just be some plain ordinary attraction where you think you are happy but you are actually not.Great love stories are made when even after having a huge fight you just lie next to each other and fall asleep. Because you know in your heart, that leaving is not an option and that he is the one.A lot ...

Why haven't I written anything for so long ?The question has been lingering on my mind , and the more I thought the more I confused I got. Writing is a therapy for me. I write when things get ugly, and I have no where to go. I write when I know no one will listen to the crap I want to say. I write because it helps me face my feelings and clear my thoughts.But off late, I gave up on facing my feelings. They only made me feel worse, so I bundled all of my thoughts together and locked it up in some corner of my heart. The hectic schedule has only helped in all of this. At the end of the day I am just so tired that all I want to do is sleep.Things are changing around me and they are changing at ...
