Uttishthata... jaagrata....!

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake

In a contemplative mood....


Human minds...
Thoughts of all kinds..
Ever changing....
Nothing forever...
Some dumb,
Sometimes dumb,
Some clever,
Sometimes clever....
But all wonderful wonders!
Human minds,
that make life beautiful...

Ninety or nine, I'm thine...

A mother would tell you, nine months is a long time....
I do not know what to say about the nine long months.... except that no regrets...
Everything happens for the best...
Nine months will become nineteen.... and ninety... And then I'll stop keeping count... But my smile will not wither... Such has been the joy....
:-) :-)

Consider 14 a round number.......

Dear What-do-I-call-you,

Oh sometimes I do get intuitions and today I was particularly feeling this is happenning (why does this spelling look wrong!) and it did.... that was why I turned and looked when I got down...

Anyways as they say everything happens for the best.. So I was feeling quite capable n strong being alone.. but then oh..... I shouldn't have looked behind me........ but then when i did it did feel really nice :) ...anyways was feeling really nice while watching Raghu Romeo......

Feel like writing lots more... But then it's good that it's way past my bedtime and I do not have the time to write more..... Like Scarlett says, let me sleep over it... after all tomorrow is another day!

And tomorrow's going to be a nice day, hai na?

Under the magnifying glass....

1. Oh I'm the ultimate cribber... give me any situation and I can point out the dark lining to it... if I choose to, I can also point out the silver lining.. but then having been in the company of pessimists and believing in 'hope-for-the-best-but-be-prepared-for-the-worst' line of thought, I generally always think and imagine all the possible loopholes and faults that are going to pop up. Which is actually good in the end but it keeps me thinking and as a result of realising the possibilty of defects, I'm not happy. The bliss that comes with ignorance is not there. My mind is forever occupied. Sometimes it proves to be good, sometimes stressful for me. Well...

2. I look at myself many a times :P (You can easily make out from all my posts here - they are abt me!) And I notice my self contradictory behaviour and I like to make fun of it, laugh at it. But the way I point it out, others cannot make out that I'm pointing at my weaknesses.

3. Ok as stated above, my words or the way I say something end up conveying something quite wrong!

4. I hate the idea of having hurt someone and I make it a point to apologise, to make the same mistake.... :(

5. I have strong beliefs about things and if I hate someone, I hate them a lot. But if I love someone / something... I love with all my heart! This I know for sure! Come what may.

6. I have learnt the art of forgiving to some extent... But I'm not proud of the reason why I learnt it.

7. There are so many more things I could write but will write later... have to rush now...

I've been stupid!

Hey! Feeling nice right now! :) Good music and good memories and smiling faces always make one feel cheerful! I shall keep this in mind! Yes!

Dear Reader, would love to see your smiling face too! There's not one face I've seen that doesn't look beautiful when the smile's there... :) Of course I can imagine you are smiling! :) But please really do..! Even if you are cross with me!

:-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

No workaround....

A and B are friends... At least A thinks so. They meet because A wants to meet B. Not because B wants to meet A. A has lots of things to say to B. But B is in a different world altogether. B doesn't even think A will want to say something. So B goes on and on and on... giving A no chance to say whatsoever. A also makes no effort to say anything thinking B will understand one day, or maybe it's good B doesn't understand, or maybe B deserves better things to be said to B, or maybe because A is tired with all the previous efforts.
So when A meets C, A carries some extra disappointment and frustration... and that leads to frustration in C. And as you have rightly guessed, this chain continues.
But you can't blame B for all this. As B's behaviour is also rooted in some past happenings and is not 'intentional'!
In short no one is to blame, everyone is to suffer, and life goes on.. after all they say happiness comes from within and neither B can provide happiness to A nor can A make B smile. So maybe the best solution is not to say anything to anyone, do as one pleases and generally enjoy without hurting others. 'Without hurting others' conveniently does not mean 'doing what pleases others'. And in case anyone is silly enough to get hurt, laugh at their silliness or sensitivity. Or pretend to have not noticed.
After all accepting circumstances and facts comes in handy... for everyone. It especially makes others' life easy....
