No Title Whatsoever



Was trying to come up with a post for quite some time now but ALAS!!! There are about 5-7 drafts still in the edit mode...somehow not willing to take the heap from there to here...seem to be stuck there like a small kid...willing to play hide and seek and never come out in the light...so I let them be there...let them have fun and relax in the darkness...wish I could have that privilege of staying in some hidden, dark shed and never come out of it till the time I wish...
Missing Home

I was missing home really badly yesterday...Nothing Happened...No Reason...Just wanted to run away from here and sit with Mom...just sit and do nothing, nothing at all!!!

Motivation

Are you the one who needs some kind of motivation to take out some time to sit back and reflect on 'us', 'our society', or 'our country'?

Don’t think too much! WE all are the same. If not all, but majority of us do want to contribute to our society’s growth, be a part of our country’s development process, and get involved in some form of activity which can enable us to pay back to this society, which has given us enormous opportunities to be where we are today. However, we need to be shaken out of our daily routine lives to be able to think on the lines of being a responsible citizen and DO something. Yeah…even SRK now advocates for ‘doing’ something and leading the country!

I belong to the same genus of people who need an inspiration to think out of the box and begin doing something. And for me the stimulation came in the form of EHSAAS. What can be a better way to start with, than aiming to educate the children of underprivileged class of society, who would constitute the larger section of the ‘responsible citizens’ of tomorrow?

Sooner or later, we have to realize that it is ‘us’ who need to start thinking objectively and taking initiatives. No blame game can unravel the complexities and we shouldn’t even wait for someone else to initiate a beginning and clean our own house, our neighborhood, our country! It is ‘us’ who can and need to bring about a CHANGE.

I hope to involve and motivate all of you who sincerely want to be a part of the army of civilians who wants to bring about a positive change to our society, in whatever way it be. Don’t let the spirit die! Remember, it is vital to start thinking now. Actions will surely follow!

Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the album Blue Moves


What have I got to do to make you love me
What have I got to do to make you care
What do I do when lightning strikes me
And I wake to find that you're not there

What do I do to make you want me
What have I got to do to be heard
What do I say when it's all over
And sorry seems to be the hardest word

It's sad, so sad
It's a sad, sad situation
And it's getting more and more absurd
It's sad, so sad
Why can't we talk it over
Oh it seems to me
That sorry seems to be the hardest word

What do I do to make you love me
What have I got to do to be heard
What do I do when lightning strikes me
What have I got to do
What have I got to do
When sorry seems to be the hardest word

Ramu ki Aag

I surely must have done some realy good deeds in my past life that am still alive...no am not talking about being saved from the bomb blasts that happened in Hyderabad...but about still managing to be alive after watching Ramu's AAG...

Ramu ki AAG ne humko jala hi diya hota, bas hamare achche karmo ki wajah se hum aaj aapke saamne sahi salaamat hain :P

An absolute movie buff like me hardly dislikes any movie...my idea of a good weekend is to go for any movie...mind you any...but this ramu ki aag...am surprised how am still alive although it wasnt any less than committing suicide...after a long saturday (long--coz I was in office for 6 hours), I decided to venture out to find tickets for the so-called 'fundoo' remake of the age-old blockbuster Sholay, RGV's Aag...and what a luck...i got the tickets...that too very easily, without booking them a week ago and in a descent theatre...but whats waiting in there, I could have never guessed...the theatre was jam packed with all fools, like me...

Now a bit about the movie:

All the characters were total waste n why the hell all of them...esp mr. Big B had to overact to the extent that he never seemed to be the negative character but a complete joker (on top of it, the name Babban, suits a character like Rajpal Yadav more than Gabbar’s counterpart); his weird expressions were rather funny than scary... infact now mothers would tell their children that better get ready for a sweet dreamy sleep coz Babban uncle would come and make you laugh with his comic acts...I dont understand why all the other actors like Ajay Devgan and Sushmita Sen wanted to be a part of this blockbuster flop show where they just had to over-react on every dialog and underact for every little scene, respectively, that they had in the movie...I still dont know who played Jay's character and why was Ghungroo and Laila (her auto)in the movie, even Dhanno cant explain...for Sush...it was absolutely clear that she isnt getting work nowadays...n the Telugu superstars...are they so velle to act in this super bakwaas bollywood flick...alltogether it was disastrous and pathetic...sorry, actually disastrous and pathetic would be an understatement!

I am Blessed

Are you blessed? Like I am?

Blessed with friends:-)? Nothing can be more worthful in life than to have people around you whom you can call FRIENDS, whom you trust, whom u call up to just shout at them and to bitch about someone else ;-) or dont call up for months and then blast each other off for not keeping in touch...ask for their shoulders to cry knowing that ur need for an ear is worth spoiling their mood...whom you take for granted at any hour of the day at any point of time in your life...hug them in front of the world without any apprehensions, scold them for any of their mistakes and then ensure they don't repeat it again...feel disgusted for their failure...and overjoyed for their success and occasions of happiness in their lives...tell them about all the silly things that you have done without feeling embarrased...ask for...infact demand their help without categorising them as 'favors' that need to be returned...Have u ever felt liking thanking God for making u meet all such wonderful people in life? I have and would always :-)!

Thanks to all the awesome ppl. who have come into my life as 'friends', making me the person I am!

Hey Wait!!!

Hey look
I am running fast
On these straight and curvy roads
And what
You walking even faster

Wait a bit
I’ll not take long
At least explain
What’s stopping you
From stopping by

I need your company
Can’t walk alone anymore
All day long
I get tired
But why do I wait
When I know u would not come!!!

Fog Water Trip

This was the 1st trip after comimng to Hyderabad, a short 1-day though but amazingly exciting one...I joined a group of friends who had met each other and had formed a gang at the time of their joining...similarly as I had made a gang during NIIT SEED Boot Camp time :-)) [Miss u guys]...And they happily and whole-heartedly welcomed us (me n Joyita)...

We went to Nagarjuna Sagar Dam and the waterfalls which are about 10 Kms away from the Dam...had hired a sumo so had all the luxury to stop the vehicle at any dhaba...dhabha??? Wheres the dhaba?? There wasnt a single eating joint...not even South Indian dhabha on the way, so forget about any North Indian joint...this is so unlikely N.Indian and my usual trips from Delhi..so all of us were almost famished by the time we reached the dam after 3 hrs of journey...but wat an awesome view as soon as we reached the place...



We could feel the little droplets of water from the very distant itself...wish all the lock gates were open...but since the gates were open, we were not allowed to go to the nuseum which is accessible only via a boat...wow...but bad luck...newaz then moving on to the waterfalls...they were so pure and so fresh...i and Meghna managed to go upto the foot of the waterfalls...


And then the masti continued..we went to the crocodile breeding area and literally took bath there...no am not kidding...have a look...

Had a lot of masti wid my new set of frens...and all my frns back in Delhi..I miss u[:-)]!

Hyderabad Blues

Ufff I still don’t believe that am finally here…away from home, away from family, away from mummy…away from everybody…and why?? “For a bright career”… is the only and most reasonable reply…this means that career is the priority? And why not…after all what else is on the cards…who knows where I might end up…so what is in my hands is my future…my career…which can surely make or break me, my life…but am I such a career-oriented woman who needs to take up a job leaving the home?? Or am I ready to let go a good career opportunity for a stable, peaceful family life?? Can I possibly answer this tricky question now? Right now the best thing is to adjust to the new surroundings, new ppl, and new life…am sure I have taken the right decision…decision to opt for my career rather than getting entangled in the emotional boundaries and ignore the growth in terms of a better role money and learning opportunities…and I know it will pay later…it will have to…!!!

Who am I?

"Tell me something about urself" - the ice-breaker question in most conversations!

My instant response..."Why the hell should I describe myself to you?"

But wat a dumb question is it?? Actually...how should I describe myself...is a painful question? How am I? Wat am I? Do I know myself well enough to be able to describe 'me' for you? Its a difficult question n ofcourse has a complex reply to it.

That's the way I am...
Cute, charming, and straightforward
Mature, responsible but childish and easy-going
Naughty, noisy but calm and quiet
Determined, dominating but submissive and patient
Confident, practical but indecisive and hesistant
Poilte but rude
Ambitious but lazy
Smart but nerd
Honest but liar
Intelligent but idiot
Interesting but boring
Loving but ignorer
I guess...
This is the way I am...

How about calling it a 'Contradictory Story'?

Innocently Cute!
Wats the cutest thing u have evr seen?? Or do u remember anything which brought that innocent smile on ur face?

A few days back I saw two kids on the side of the road...a girl n a boy...3-5 yrs old...dressed in (not-so-white) 'baniyans' and earthy 'nikkars'...probably brother and sisters...or may be not...but that aside...they were trying to cross the road along with a stray dog...actually no...both of them were holding one ear each of the dog and were helping it cross the road :-))... it was so sweet that I just couldnt stop myself smiling over it...
Song or the Person??

Its time to update this section...and I slept thinking of it ystrday...a lotsa things were in my mind but somehow wen wanted to write...didnt have a comp or pen n paper in near vicinity...and wen had their access...mind was somewhr else...n I dont knw why but its been happening for quite sometime now...

BTW have u ever thot that a lot of times widout realizing, we tend to relate a particular song to a person?? or an event?? And sometimes wen u hear even the slightest tune of the song coming from a far distant land, the image of the person suddenly pops up in ur mind bringing about that sudden nostalgic feeling...n this happens even if theres an absence of any striking co-relation between the song and the person...

At that point of time, do u listen to the song or think about the person?? Thinking muscles tickled?? Lemme know if that happens with u as well!

Me Writing ??

U knw wat…. I had never ever thot i cud write a poem or even an article so to say...but leaving everything aside, my work…my professional lifes entirely based on my writing skills…and to add on the spice and color…see am writing poems and write-ups for my own blog…..it might not seem so out of the place or surpring to you but its true…I used to sincerely admire ppl. who had the talent to write well and simultaneously also secretly used to wonder if I wud ever be able to work on my pencil skills….but here I am..though it might not be a too polished up writing but its, surely, is a great achievement for me and my self confidence :)...finally all depends on ur will to work towards it with all the hardwork you can put in but definitely the stimulus is provided by ur will power.

LIFE

Life’s a song
Strike the right note to never be wrong
Balance your head and heart always
Don’t just follow what the world says

Life’s beautiful as a pearl in the shell
Not always heaven, but often its hell
Life’s actually not a bed of roses
Has all kinds of emotions as in poems and proses

Life’s a mystery
Mostly solves when u become history
Course of its journey, nobody knows
It’s difficult to know where to come and where to go

Life’s pure as a drop of dew
But it’s appreciated by only a few
Believe me, its lucky to have this gift of life
Value it; nothing can match its real price.

So guyz…
Live Life Kingsize :)

For me

Alone, at a cafe
a cup of coffee in my hand
Couples, hearts, balloons
Valentine's Day across the land
And I think of the cup of coffee
you and I never had
and that you still owe me a meeting
is a thought that makes me glad
So I sit here wondering
of the conversation we'd share
whispering sweet nothings
not really going anywhere
My declarations of undying love
your admonitions of restraint
the trips we would embark upon
the idyllic canvasses we'd paint
And in that moment of epiphany
I realise that this is true
That the tripod of my life
is poetry, coffee and you.

Girl Bonding

I always used to think that girls can't be my "good" frnds......or 2 girls can't ever be "best" frnds, if I may say so...but i was so wrong
:-)...yup I am happy about this fact......NIIT has given me so ...so many lifelong friends....and yep....female friends as well....

Till date, whichever girl has been my 'good' friend has always been a lil selfish in some or the other way.....some of them being quite close:( ......anywaz...now I think that the way a woman understands another, a man can't...... though my best friend is a guy, still i think that a girl can actually empathize with me whereas a guy can only sympathise.....i need not say much to my female friends and they understand....on the contrary, I have to explain all the stuff in detail and then hope for some sympathy in case of guys......."Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus" says that women believe in sharing which men don't....so I feel quite relieved having some women friends in my life .....
Am really thankful to God for making me meet some wonderful people, who have touched my life in some or the other way.....!

For Ranit......

I can see the sun shining over my head
I can see the stars lighting my bed
I can feel the wind dancing with the flow
And I can see U giving me the energy to glow

Just as the darkness of dawn and the beauty of sunrise,
Show us the way from darkness to light
Your inspiring presence and wonderful charisma
Adds the spice to this beautiful life

The kindness you shower, the love you spread
That beautiful smile can revive the dead
Those lovely coffee breaks with honest advice
Gives me the strength to grow wise

I want to thank you
For always being by my side
To your rule I want to abide
Believe me,
U are the BEST friend, philosopher and guide

Time...

We might not meet, we might not chat,
But we are friends, better don't forget that...
Times would go passing by,
Changes would happen with U and I,
Our lives destiny would shape,
As with time, progress we make.
Distance would take us away by miles,
We might not even see each other’s smiles.
We might not help each other;
But still let not our friendship wither...
The magic of friendship would call me
And I would miss you then;
Thinking...together, we would be when...
