My Thoughts

If God answers your prayer,he is increasing your faith,if he delays he is increasing your patience.If he does not answer,he has something better for you.

THIS IS A STORY of someone special ,who gets into a number of problems, curses god for making life hell but eventually thanks god because like any other story those mistakes taught her something. I think I should start now before you start getting bored.

It is really a very -very old story of LIA who was far much beautiful than
any other life that existed at that time. (Had sharp features, long neck, big
grey eyes, height 5’10, believe me she was very attractive and not to forget
She was just 16 but had dreams to fly high in the sky but her parents just
like any other wanted her to stay with them because they wanted to protect
her from the atrocities of the world. But like any other life of her age, she
believed that she was much more sensible and intelligent than her parents
and that they knew nothing. THIS WAS HER 1ST MISTAKE OF THINKING THAT ‘HER
Anyhow lets move on….
She lived in the tribal areas of Nilgiri forest down south but wanted to go
and explore other places. She just did not want to confine herself in those
forests. One day as destiny would have planned it. Someone whom she thought was
special came into their village and her life. His name was LIAM. Slowly and
slowly his ideas started influencing her so much that she started moving
away from her family and friends. Her family and friends warned her that he
is not good but the promises that LIAM made to her and the way he depicted a
rosy picture of outside world made her believe that her well wishers just
don’t like him and that that is why they were brain washing her mind.
Oh before i forget and move forward with MY Story LIAM was absolutely, had sharp
white teeth,and not to forget he was “NON VEGETARIAN”.SO,
probably that was why her parents didn’t like him and that  LIAM was NON VEG.,
LIA didnt know. So where was i, yes that her parents warned her but she
ignored their warnings thinking that they are just playing their emotional
tricks so that she could stay away from him.THIS WAS HER 2ND MISTAKE.
After a few weeks, she thought she had enough and ran away with LIAM. So, she
put her faith in the wrong person. For few days LIAM showed her mesmerising
nature around but he had some other wicked plans stored for her.
At her home her friends knew the reality and started their search for
LIA, to protect her just like any other friends would do. On full moon night
he took LIA to the banks of river ganga. (he was very hungry of many days).
He was about to open his mouth when just like any other typical
bollywood movie her friends saved her in the nick of time. SO HER 3RD MISTAKE
So moral of the story is that all the mistakes you make teach you
something. So one should learn from them and try not to repeat them. Because
sometimes life doesn’t give second chances.


What Next????
2011 has been a year of ups and downs with balls changing courts not only in INDIA but also in rest of the world(take EGYPT for an example). People seem to have grown more mature, sensible and aware in INDIA itself. Almost 1/4 of INDIA rose to “FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION” along with ANNA HAZARE, which is a positive sign because after staying in dormancy for 64 years it was good to see INDIA UNITED for a good cause because the last time I checked I saw people coming together only to fight with each other for religion or against reservation.
After achieving the desired lokpal what NEXT?
Inspite of promoting ‘INDIA SHINING ‘ slogan, INDIA is still a HOLLOW SPHERE which is shining at the surface but from inside it is still empty.
Girls which were earlier killed on birth are now killed either due to honor killing,dowry etc. The statistics are much worse in NORTH INDIA with staes like J.K, Haryana, Delhi, Rajasthan with less than 900 girls to every 1000 boys. In our Indian Constitution “EVE TEASING” is considered or defined as a behaviour and not an offense with maximum punishment given to the culprit is 2 years of jail and fine of 5000 Rs..ARE GIRLS ONLY WORTH Rs 5000?
There are many examples which show that society treats girls as a mere object of pleasure. Are their lives worth nothing? Take for example JESSICA murder case , she was killed because she refused to give a drink, as the bar was closed. The list of women being illtreated by hands of men is endless(Ruchika case,nithari killings etc).
Even the educated families kill their daughter -in- law for dowry or cause them so much mental trauma that they commit suicide. If people love money so much why dont they marry ATM’S! Girls in the age group of 15-25 yrs are not the only targets but even small girls and old women are subjected to atrocities of men in form of rape, eve teasing, sexual harassment etc.
When will we grow? We have taken so much from the west then why cant we learn from them and make women safe. We should rise to the occasion and make women safe in INDIA before its too late..



Sitting in the  garden and watching winter set.... The  first thing that comes to our mind when we think of cold, snow is a fervent (just like scorching sun of summers ) cup of cappichino
... Or even an expresso would do :)

Winter has generally been depicted ir metaphored by many poets , filmmakers as a time of depression , cold atmosphere ( by. Cold atmosphere I mean cold vibes from people) .loneliness And not to forget winter is also used as a metaphor  for old age .... As in poem SEVEN AGES"
by shakespeare. And there are many examples in literature which show that winter can only be negative ..or depressing


In my opinion it is the way you see life... It can be monsoon, spring or winter depending upon the way you see it.. I feel winter is the best as it brings people together.... Unlike in summers .  most of labour class like rickshaw drivers generally go off to sleep after having dinner in summers, but in winter they lit fire and sit together talking their hearts out and dilly dallying their time... (BONDING)
Not only this I'm sure many of you might agree that it is the  time when you and your family sit together sharing the warmth ,quilt  and watching tv together...with gajar ka halwa
( family bonding)

And when else can you have the time of enjoying hot-2 delicacies of roadside street like hot momos, spring rolls and I can bet the delight to enjoy an ice cream in winters is amazing as it brings  a smile to our faces ...

Not only this some might complain that it is time when their mothers are strict about their clothings and that they might get sick etc but friends even if you get sick , see the positive point you get the attention, love, care of the whole house even the brother or sister with whom you usually squabble about Pety issues starts caring for you... And accepts all your demands;)

So now I would like to ask WHO SAYS THAT WINTERS ARE BAD AND COLD" I find them pretty intriguing:);)



We humans have a nature of putting the blame of our failures or wrong choices on DESTINY. It would not be incorrect to say that DESTINY is the best escape route for the guilty conscious souls.
Let’s think for a second, is there any occasion when you were not able to achieve the desired goal in your life, like not getting desired marks or job or when you were caught by a teacher while you were about to bunk  the class? What was the first line you spoke? That “Aaj to kismat hi kharab hai…” (Today my destiny didn’t favor me..). But was it really a matter of chance that we couldn’t achieve what we wanted? I believe it was the wrong choice that we made, like choosing the wrong moment for doing something, that is responsible for our destiny.
Dhirubhai Ambani once quoted:-

Destiny depends upon choice rather than chance

Maybe we try to blame our destiny because it gives us a soothing feeling. But is it all our destiny’s fault? Rather, in my opinion, it is the wrong choice which governs our destiny. But why do we make wrong choices?? It is because our mind is not clear and is full of problems related to the worldly affairs. So one should clear the mind by taking a DEEP BREATH, and then think about the pros and cons of the choice that you are going to take and then make a decision. So for all my technical friends, let me explain it in a technical way. If an airplane is considered as your destiny, depending upon the  path you want to move, you can change the rudder of the plane and your plane will move in that direction.

And for my foodie friends, I’d like to give another example. If in 1 plate you have khichdi and in another you have roadside paanipuri and if  you choose paanipuri and fall ill. The first thing you’ll say is “ki aaj to kismat hi kharab hai”, but was it really because of paanipuri or because you made the wrong choice?
In the end I  would just like to say that think before you make a choice because your destiny depends upon it!
