Its OK!

 And so, I havn’t visited my favourite place of hibernation in a long time now. No confusions and misunderstandings here. Yesss I meant my blog!!

Well lets just say, I was busy. Not true though!
I was travelling. Definitely a lie!
I had too much work… uhmm partially true!
Okay I accept I’ve become too lazy now… Beep beep and the buzzer goes out loud, Yesss you are plain simple LAZY!

To all those people who comment on it and read it, I can’t thank you enough. You are my only source of inspiration to cut off some slack and spend sometime with myself out here.  :*

Soooo, right now I am going through a phase called dealing with life.

To that I may add that all I am learning about it, is that everyday, every experience and every situation is just “OK”.
For instance,
Its OK to get bashed by your boss, you might feel insulted and kicked at the backside and would want to quit your job and swear out loud. But, the next day when you get to see your colleague getting the same sweet doze, the sadistic pleasure calms you down saying its ok to get scolded,  “everyone does”.

Its OK to work 12 hours and not get appreciated or lets say even more than 12 hrs sometimes and yes I like exaggerating many a times for some self pity.
You come across those labours who demand for overtime or stay up all night to work only to get that extra upcharge to feed their families and you realise you’re no match.

Its totally OK, to do something that you didn’t want to do because you still don’t know what you really wanna do. You know what???  Its better than sitting idle and one day you will find out what you really wanna do because by that time, you would have done everything and not left anything to not know.

I don’t want to really rant about the issues in life this moment but yes my learnings boils down to one thing ie “Everyday is a new story, a new chapter and a new start”

Today I learnt or rather I am learning that everything comes down to it being OK and everything you do,  is everything everyone has done in their lives at one point of time or another. So you belong to the sane category and even if you didn’t, it still is OK. :P

Yes, time flies but then there is also a saying that time heals everything so you just need to chill and not take everything so seriously as its just “OK” and later too everything will be “OK”.
Cheers to OKness!

A happy Average!

Why do you shy,
Why do you fear.
Do you not wish to fly,
Live your dreams my dear.

Amidst the crowd bustling with grades, with one mark above and below being the cause of pride and death, there stands someone who is celebrating only because he/she merely passed. Those who scored 98% are causing depression to 95% holders and 80% is not considered a standard anymore.

Creating a benchmark has become the only goal in everyone’s life these days. Parents already decide their kid’s future, kids strive hard to live up to their expectations weaving their dream into reality.

For those who you think have way far more intellect than you, those who work 14 hours a day and earn a bomb, those who have travelled around the world, those who you think know a lot, be happy for them not envious.
You receive when you give. When you don’t think ill of other’s is when you attain wisdom.

Perhaps you’re not as sharp as others but you could be suave, you might not be as rich but you could be brave.

It’s okay to not get things at one go, does not certify you as dumb. It’s completely fine to earn half as much as amongst your peers, does not make you poor and its okay to not have the same luxuries as others.

If someone tries to bog you down by calling you dumb, you don’t have to think low of yourself because you know they are no one to judge as they didn’t bring you up.

You’re bad at something they’re good at but are they good at the things you’re best at?

One day maybe you’ll be as rich, as smart, as powerful as them but I plead you to not lose the respect you have. Aggression and insensitivity is wrapped around and sunk into the blood of those who are at  positions now and however insane it sounds but the truth is yes they scorn the noble souls who brought them in this world, the reason of their existence, “Their Parent’s”

Right now, you’re not where they are but you do have an option of becoming what they are by simple hardwork but they in no possibility can become what you are.

Being an average does not stop you from being who you are!
You are wise, sensitive, sweet, forgiving you spend time with parents receive their blessings, you preach god, you know intellect is not inborn but comes with knowledge, reading and practice, you are fun, people love to hang out with you, you are hilarious, you are smart in your head irrespective of what others think of you because you know and believe you’re good and one day you will make it big without budging from your dignity and self esteem.

I am a happy Average! Are you?

Days of our Lives-DPS Noida, This one’s for YOU!

Going back in time and remembering the times when we always wanted to grow up as kids in school and wanted to get rid of the whole beset of studying, giving exams going for tuitions competing with every student in the class to score better.
Who knew then, that our once whimsical big pool of illusion will be shattered when we’ll  finish our education and the dreamy bubble will burst with a realization ,“What  a stupid idea it was to grow up” as soon as we start working …..
Age should just stop when you’re 19, not that you don’t enjoy after  but yes, finishing  your “Teen” age feels like a nightmare for all, including me. And yes, falling in the same category and regretting what I said before about school, I am left with no option but to cherish the good old rather gold days spent in school.
Starting with those days when school lasted just a few hours, when all we had to do was write Abcd properly and color within lines, when lunch was in the dining hall and the uniforms with belts so that they don’t fall. When aaya didi’s used to sharpen our pencils and we walked in lines  with one arm distance holding the shoulders. When PT period was about playing games and wearing white shoes was compulsory. When the first English song we heard was I am a Barbie girl for girls and Le copa de la vida maria  by Ricky Martin for boys. When getting artbook was mandatory else a term which was the most exciting and fun thing in high school was once called the most embarrassing thing ie “Punishment”. When swimming was in the junior  swimming pool and deep side used to be scary added with stories like creepy monsters are going to come take you away. When annual functions used to be all about colorful costumes and Christmas nightstay’s  were looked forward the most. When bonfires used to be the best part and PT teacher’s played the fake santa..  :P
When class 5th felt like a senior class courtesy shifting from junior wing to senior wing and the first pen ever used was  a Pilot V5. When summer camps became the new buzz and assemblies a torture must.
When friends drifted apart as German,Sanskrit,French came along  giving terms to  A and B section kids as cool and the rest nerds... LOL!
When we suddenly grew up and the skirt length reduced ,the pants became baggy. Washrooms became the hotspot for girls and the boys were no more shabby.
When once the rule of having joint seats having a boy and a girl sitting together was broken as generally after 6th grade guys and girls sign the peace treaty :P…  
When the pathway from the basketball court till the hostel became the stroll area for lovers and  behind the Gandhi statue were rumours spread by duffers. The well area was considered haunted and bunking every class was the most wanted. When practicing in the band room or developing fake asthma were the best excuses for bunking assembly.  When Thunder was the best music festival having cute guys and girls from various schools coming. :p
When 50 rupees were more than enough to carry and chole kulche and icecream were a treat.  When yellow cards became the means to scare and children couldn’t resist to dare.
When the last day of the annual exams, beginning of the summer and winter vacations was enthralling and 14 years were pure “Heaven”
Then came Christmas holidays, the last holidays as we reckoned, class 12th was our last stop and the idea of growing up totally got flopped!

And as the days go by slowly we miss school even more,
Cuz school was one place we enjoyed  to the core!
To All the teachers of DPS Noida, for pretending to be ignorant at times so that kids could enjoy and the journey in DPS wouldn’t have been fun if you weren’t there.
& Most importantly,
To all those people who had their share of fun in a place called paradise also called DPS Noida!

It all lies in you!

You’ve been there, I have been there, We all have, been there.

The Dark times, days when you felt bogged down by everyone, when your pride was smashed by mere words of the opponent, when you got frustrated by every single thing,  infuriated and bursted out in tears within seconds.

Samantha was in the same situation, like all of us.
She left her job because she didn’t like it and in return sat home jobless for months all together, her love life had hit the rocks, her parents thought she was useless, and Yes, for how long will your friends give you their shoulder and motivational stuff like don’t worry , it’ll all be alright. After a while, her friends stopped responding to her calls/messages because obviously its human nature to get bugged by someone who just calls you to cry out loud about how miserable her/his life is and how God was unfair to them and how they are allergic to good luck.

After all the litany of thinking, since that’s the only thing she could do while she sat at home all this long, she came to one conclusion.

Its said an empty mind is a devil’s workshop, and how far it held in Sam’s life was on her to decide. It’s funny how the human brain is mired, how your thoughts shift from Positive to Maybe to Negative to Evil.

SUICIDE, is the first option everyone thinks of during these times but Sam had managed to believe somehow that she Can and she Will. It’s not the right time for her to die and let go of her life in vain.

So, she decided to try her hands on the famous saying of being positive, how positive thoughts get passed on to the universe and in return everything starts working in your favour.

Her first agenda being the most obvious and important was, getting a job herself instead of relying upon her friends. Within a few days after facing people hanging up on her, getting back no reverts, personally going up to people nevertheless, she did manage to get a job.

She started diligently working on it, setting goals one by one. There was no looking back as she didn’t want to budge from her aspirations anymore.

She followed her heart and now she’s a happily married business woman having a loving family and being appreciated by all.

                            Besides all this, she learnt a very big lesson in life….

Nobody knows you better than yourself,  You know you can and should believe you will.
You think your fat, work out and lose weight to look nice, you think you don’t speak well then debate with yourself against the mirror till the time you gain confidence, you think your dumb then read,learn and educate yourself so that nobody thinks low of you.

You have a problem, solve it yourself instead of sulking about it and telling others.

This is for all those who have been Once, Are or will be the Samantha in your life.

Good times don’t roll if you haven’t gone through bad times!

The Moment!

The moment has finally come as I declare to thee,
How you managed to turn around the world for me.
To the person I knew way back from class Nursery.
Has become my life now I wish you Happy Anniversary.
The little things you do from a wish to coming all the way,
It touches every ounce of my soul I trust you wouldn’t betray.
To start with your patient dealing with my unreasonable crimes,
Torturing you to the hilt and a lot of pain at times.
You don’t need to do much your one touch is enough,
Even a day without seeing your face seems so tough.
I am amazed how you do so much just for my one smile,
To return the same happiness I would walk an extra mile.
The umpteen times you please me by your words play,
Your cute childish antics including self obsession makes my day,
The thought only kills me of ever staying apart,
Because from the deepest core you purely rule my heart.
From the little quarrels to the war of words so alarming,
Sweet talks still wins over as you’re my Prince Charming.
I promise to stay by you in days of good, bad and old,
Our love is by far the best like shining pure gold.
And I didn’t say all this before what I poured out all above,
As I waited for this moment just to surprise you My Love!

This & That!!!

A wonder, a thought so callous I dropped,
To know if I am what I think I am.
To sometimes in the night I simply can’t sleep,
The dreamy world I am in where enemies only weep.
Is it only me who fails to surrender,
A mixture of brain rake by a nerve blender.
Happy opposites sad, confused or silent,
Swaying each day or does it come to violent.
I laugh out so loud that sometimes I cry,
Free falling I wish, in the head I fly.
To the upset I smile, to go beyond that mile,
Who are you really? Did you ever wish to think,
Ofcourse a girl came the answer without even a blink.
To the shoe she loved she saw that day,
When savings came in hand, the pretty bag came in the way.
The calories she gains by the sizzling chocolate cake,
The guilt calls she receives immediately after the intake.
The secret she keeps inside never really longs,
As girl gang gossips that always prolongs.
To the puppy face she makes when shopping with dad,
When returns home fears mom, woah my bad.
To the No she regrets, when later she dreams Yes,
How smartly she sticks with Maybe shooing away the poor Baby.
The numerous times in her head she would prepare.
Just to say Hi to the cute guy whose aware.
Fitting into that glamorous dress she so wishes,
Even at the cost of cleaning millions of dishes.
She finally knocks God’s door to ask for a clue,
He caresses her saying Chill Sweety You’re nothing but just YOU!

2013- There you go!

Happy New Year Guys!

Resolutions,resolutions, resolutions!!!! So many yet none followed....

Hey, what happened to “The world will end” on 12.12.12 saga, oops it got postponed to 21.12.12 , guess what?? Its 11.12.2013, and we are still alive and so not kicking.

Well I wouldn’t get into that sulking zone like many and say Whats so new about the year, it always is the same. Hell no, you grow an year elder. Duh!

And in my case, it would be turning into a graduate. Now there’s nothing to be proud of  if you see it from my eyes. *Zipped*

You’re no more a student who can get up any time you want, sleep in the afternoon, then sleep late in the night and do whatever the heck you wanna do. Why?? Because you have a job, which pays you after slogging your uhmm lets say head off, for a month and I swear to god the month does not even seem like a month, it seems like an year and you wanna say Dude, Where the hell is my salary???

U get familiar with this term called Boss, whose prime role is to belittle your efforts and the only reason why he/she gets paid is to sit at the desk and give u orders, you do them, you don’t leave the office till its finished, while your boss is just having a merry time, comes late leaves early still, takes away all the credit. Despite the efforts being put in, they always manage to go in vain. Now that’s so very convenient isn’t it? Hmph!

The moment you quit your job, nomatter how many genuine reasons you had you will find your family and people around going ballistic about it.
Its like woah, You did a blunder! Along comes the judgement too, she/he is useless, is not getting a job, just sits at home does nothing. Helloo the market can be down too, did that thought ever even fainty occur your mind? Or maybe he/she turned down the offers, OR MAYBE JUST MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS! Will you?

You quit your job, does not mean you’re a loser or even a quitter for that matter. You just followed your heart.
I mean u gave your 1st 10th grade board exam. Every one’s first board is the scariest thing. It surely is!! If you were a quitter, you would have never attempted that also.

Ohkay before I get into a whole new tangent out here, I just wanna say that whatever decision you took in the past should not be regretted today not because your having problems because of them right now, but because you felt it was the best for you that moment.  Also, you will overcome today too.

Move on from the bad, good, evil and pure because everything happens for a reason and indeed for the good!

So just keep faith in yourself and move on! And that’s my new year resolution! J


Moving on 2012!
