"Lets Go Shopping!" 
These are the three little words from mom which swings your mood in seconds!Walk straight into a shopping mall, and flaunt the latest styles.



I've had shared endless experiences rather creepy experiences on this site,whenever I've stepped out  for an 'intensional shopping'.So much so,that my dad was once so much fed up with this choosy nature of mine,that he suggested me to get a pair of 'JEans' stitched Imagine!Now,the usual scene is that,whenever we step out for 'my' shopping,my parents successfully manage to get a seat somewhere and its me,who go on to buy something for myself.

Shoppers Stop has always been the hot favorite shopping stop for both me and my sissy,for the wide variety it offers to choose from.This time,we chose to go for online shopping from SS!
Here are some things which have been bought by me or have been added to my wish list...After all,birthday and christmas on their way! :D

CLicK MaNiaC









The Story behind lighting these 365 wicks: 
King Hima’s sixteen-year-old son was destined to die by snakebite on the fourth day of his marriage. On the fourth day, his wife did not allow him to sleep. She laid out ornaments & heaps of gold at the entrance of her husband’s chamber & lighted lamps all over the place. She spent the night telling stories & singing songs.When Yam, the God of Death arrived in the disguise of a serpent, his eyes were blinded by the sparkle of the lights & he could not enter the prince’s chamber. Instead, he climbed on top of the heap & sat there the whole night listening to the songs. In the morning, he went away & it was on that night that her husband was saved from death. This day is also known as Yamadeepdan & lamps are kept burning throughout the night, in commemoration of Yamraj.

Three Little Words



Beep Beep...SMS!
You open your inbox once again to read a "Happy New Year" message, rather just a formal reply by a person whom you forwarded one in the morning. The entire day, your mobile has beeped, hasn't it? Some people do bother of wishing back, either again by a text message or a call, Some simply mark it read.Truly, virtual world has reduced distances, but, I fear one day, personal human relations would end. While there are some like these I mentioned, there on the other side, are  people who are desperately waiting to meet their family and relatives, to invite Goddess Lakshmi to their place, but alas!,they are forced to guard other’s wealth and assets!
Yes! This one's for our Security Guards!
As a family tradition, we headed on to worship Lord Ram. Standing there at the temple gates, looking at the lightings of the nearby lofty buildings was a man dressed in grey .His Job: To guarantee security and to manage the mass. I never before bothered to notice the security guards, the sole people , because of whom we are able to enjoy a serene sleep every night. Silently imagining himself with his family in other’s was his job on this auspicious day of Deepavali.I could see his eyes turning to every kid whose eyes revealed the happiness of holding his favorite chocolate, every wife walking with her husband clad in gold and a beautiful saree.A man, desperate to return a "Happy New Year" wish to someone!
There I saw, a little girl, aged not more than 7,in a cute pink frock playing with an Orange balloon. The balloon flew towards the guard, as if it was intended to. She ran behind it as fast as possible to get hold of it .The Guard picked it up and handed it to its 7 year old owner.
"Thank you Uncle" said an innocent voice.
And
"Happy New Year, Uncle"
"Happy New Year Beta!"

The three little words!
It makes such a difference to someone!

A very Happy New Year to all the people who  protect us,our houses and our nation.

Colours Of Festivity...






                                             Clicked with Canon PowerShot..What makes us Click!

Creepy Part Two!



List out some reasons why your parents might be fed up with you?
Easy??
Yes,A hundred reasons..Homework nahin karta,padhti nahi nahi hai,classes bunk karte hai,Pura din FB pe bethi rehti hai...And the list continues!

But above all this,what irritates my parents is, when I forcibly take them out for shopping and return without a single bag in hand.And this is my second post related to same ( 1st one: Creepy ),only difference being,I was able to buy something then,but now,absolutely nothing!

I don't know,what goes wrong,when I leave for intentional shopping.Four days it has been,since we are roaming in the city malls.Its actually just I and Dad.Momma manages to find some place in the malls and prefers waiting there,watching us return empty handed.Its never the case,that I don't like something,when I simply go for a stroll around the city malls,I mean everything,every apparel,seems to attract me when I dont have to buy them and then it becomes so difficult to resist.
Just today,I went to one of the malls,known for its apparels,and when I described the kind,I wanted,they say,
"Iss size ke to khatam ho gaye.."
What?
UGH!

Part three may soon get published! :(

You said it

Was just surfing the net,when I came across these..
Satire at its best! 

"I had to create this mythical individual in a striped coat, with a bushy moustache, a bald head with a white wisp of hair at the back, a bulbous nose on which perched a pair of glasses, and thick black eyebrows permanently raised, expressing bewilderment. He voyages through life with quiet amusement, at no time uttering a word, looking at the ironies, paradoxes and contradictions in the human situation."











So True..:)

The Paradox of Our Age

We have bigger houses but smaller families;
more conveniences, but less time;
We have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgement;
more experts, but more problems;
more medicines, but less healthiness;
We’ve been all the way to the moon and back,
but have trouble crossing the street to meet
the new neighbor.
We’ve built more computers to hold more
information to produce more copies than ever,
but have less communications;
We have become long on quantity,
but short on quality.
These times are times of fast foods;
but slow digestion;
Tall man but short character;
Steep profits but shallow relationships.
It is time when there is much in the window,
but nothing in the room.


- His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama

Rejected,Once Again!

"Chai" she said as she timidly kept the bright white china bone cups with light green flowers painted on them on the glass table.

Her face shone with the dreams of being the perfect bride for a perfect groom.

"Idhar Baitho" said a lady with a wheatish complexion who had wrinkles of forty.

The girl with a finished facial texture walked from the corner of the room to her side,carefully taking each step,in the beautiful Banarasi saree which simply adorned her perfect shaped body.

"Kaisi ho?"asked the lady,sounding fully formal.

"Achi hoon,aunty." replied the girl.

"Ghar ke kaam aate hai?Khana banana?"asked she.

"Ha aunty,sab kaam aate hai" replied the girl,who with each reply,felt that,at least this time she won't  be rejected.

"Kaha kaam karti ho?"

"Infosys me,aunty"

"Ha..Ha..Thik hai..Mera beta Microsoft mai hai!"she said in an emphasized voice.

"Lijiye na kuch.."said the daughter's mother pointing towards the deep fried samosas.She was then, experiencing the worst feeling ever,but knew,that she was helpless.

"Nahi..Nahi..Chalo mein chalti hoon"and she began to walk towards the door.

"Kya hua?"

"Kuch nahi.."

"Toh yeh rishta?"

"Nahi..Ladki thodi saavli hai.. Humein yeh rishta manzoor nahi" and she walked out.

There stood the girl,once again with her dreams shattered!








































I pity all those people,who fail to see the inner beauty and rather judge the people based on their complexion!

Xperia 24*7!!







PS: I so desperately wanted to post something,that I ended up with this! :D

HER Dream...

"I dream of being the president one day!" said SHE.
"President of the 'Happy Club'?" ridiculed another voice as SHE for the first time let out her dream in front of someone.
"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."thought SHE.


**There are always people who'll first laugh at your dreams,make every possible attempt so that you dont reach there and when you finally prove them wrong,they'll be the ones standing in the front rows hoping to see their photographs with you,in the next daily mail!

Out I Live,Yet I Die

Little cold hands,
waiting for someone..
Someone who could pick her up from the garbage bin,
Someone who could hug her and kiss her tender pink cheeks.
Little did she know,
how cruel this outer world was.
For it was only the first time someone had betrayed her.
Someone who nurtured her for 9 long months,
someone who promised to adore her forever.
The same someone,snatched from her,her beautiful childhood days!

Because I am a woman from Hollywood! I am the heroine of my life…


All along these years, I’ve seen people questioning us. Questioning us about the way I and many alike me, magically survive in this seemingly impossible world. A world where even the brightest sun shines only a ray upon us. A day which ends up sometimes with less than a penny earned. A day when even the appetite promises to compromise with the situation, a situation we are being put upon by the nature. A place where eyes seem to have gotten habituated of seeing the filthy food. A place where privacy is yet to be defined. A life so lucky that the metal roofs make us enjoy the rains all throughout the year. A life where my children gleefully play with the mud, the tires and the metal pieces. A life where problems seem to be the synonym of life..

But…

Dark it may be, but our smiles lighten up the part. Less than a penny be our daily wage, we are helpfully being served by our neighbors when in need. However empty our stomachs be, whatever prepared gets shared equally. Though there may be rats, dirt, and uncleanliness all around, we still sit down together to watch the common television. Be it just the metal pieces or tyres,our children know how to run together shouting and enjoying behind one.

Buying a posh jewellery may be your dream, but for me, it’s my spirit which adorns me.

Because I am a woman from Hollywood!
I am the heroine of my life…



P.S:
This post is dedicated to all the courageous and high spirited women of Hollywood,a slum area in the posh new city of Ahmedabad.It has been popularly known as HOLLYWOOD for the last 4 decades for the reason that the women living here have a rustic beauty and glamour which is found to resemble that of Hollywood stars.

K(C)anteen!

Well..This post is dedicated to my college's K-Block Canteen..No!We dont have A to J..Its just named K!Kanteen,maybe!

About a year ,including all the bunks,public holidays, Saturdays, Sundays,it has been,since I enrolled myself in the Engineering course.

Day1,we had what we call a campus tour..A 111 acre campus tour..Pity our legs,you!And for lazy bums like me..how difficult it would have been,Imagine!All the academic blocks,the botanical garden,the animal house blah..blah.. was covered but F-O-o-D...? 45 minutes and they didn't talk about the K(C)anteen!That should be probably the first thing people (like me) would be wishing to see!

Finally..at the 55th minute.."This is the Technology Canteen!",uttered a gentleman.
Technology canteen..not that it had all the powerful and amazing features through which you could order and a robot like thing will serve you!But,it was meant for the to-be-engineers,so the term TECHNOLOGY! Technology, shouldn't have been the name,I guess!I could see more number of people,with posters,banners etc. explaining to the freshers(rather boasting) about their clubs!

Yess..Lets talk about the Technology alias K-Block Canteen!They say,"First Impression Is the Last Impression"..and alas!It failed to impress me!The building was quite good and decent..!Like, the architecture and all..but you were definitely not going to fill up your empty stomachs with cement & concrete,I guess!
You step inside,right side-the dry nashta,left side-The coupon counter.You feel as if you are jolted off by a mob!

"Uncle..Ek Lays"
"Uncle...Uncle..Ek coke..Aa nai uncle..pelu waalu"(Gujarati! :D )
"Arey Uncle..kab se kahdi hu..!Kaha hai mera coupon?"

UGH!

Four more steps and you experience what you call the amalgamation of smells! Yuk...The Noodles,the Choley-Baturey..The Paneer-Tikka..The Samosas..!Eww...I thought,they had forgotten to put up some chimneys!Adding to this..the people..!Not a single table was vacant..plus the rubbish sound of people shouting unnecessarily!
                                                   

About a year ,including all the bunks,public holidays,saturdays,sundays,it has been,since I started my Engineering course,BUT I've never again dared to step into this K(C)anteen!No matter,how much,my friends spend up their energy convincing me,I'll not!Never!When you can enjoy the Maa ke haath ke bana hua khana,peacefully,right below the open sky,why trouble yourself!

P.S. :I dont, at all, blame the hostilities!I understand you,because I've tasted your Hostel ka bana khana!

Everyday!



The lazy morning wake ups…
The chilled fresh morning air…
The bright green leaves...
The greedy traffic police officers…
The light music in the autos….
The dark black roads wet with the rains…
The fresh faces of the people…
The sweeper with his dreary expressions…
The little girls’ with the pretty pinafores…
The dutiful gray security guard…
The optimistic eyed shop owners…
The bright yellow school buses…
The white walls of the buildings…
The black board of the class…
The regular teachers…
The same people...

The everyday life..!!

Overcoming Failures..


Time and again, I have been made to realize that circumstances in life never stay the same. In fact, Life is what you call, a roller coaster ride, you can either choose to scream or throw your arms up and enjoy! We all are born in this world to play a role.Sometimes, the audience applause, sometimes they condemn. But it solely depends on our attitude to how we respond to our critics and retaliate. It is, our actions which decide who we are and what will we be in the approaching years.

Life is a race... If you don't run fast... You will be like a broken anda (egg)...

A famous dialogue by Virus in 3 idiots. Indeed, life has become a race. A race where we undoubtedly have learnt to score high, to flatter, to win & to gain people's admiration! A race which only appreciates the winners and ridicules the slow runners?
A race which demands no failure? A race which forces you to bow down your faces in front of swift runners?

BUT WHY?!

Why we all are so ashamed to speak of our failures? Why? Did we all work or are working to prove ourselves to the people, to impress the teachers, bosses? School syllabus teaches you photosynthesis or Ohms Law about a thousand times, but why aren’t we taught to learn from our failures? Are we not supposed to learn something from our defeats rather than be ashamed of them? The one who hasn’t failed in life for once, hasn't accomplished anything too! Each time we are being deserted because of failures is only to  rise above our limits!

Yes, failure should bring shame if you don’t stand up & fight! Failure is not something when you work hard and fail but failing to work hard! We are all meant to be special unique individuals with our own speed of running the race of life. Accept who you are, know your strengths, work to achieve them and WIN for nobody else but your own self!!

In Books and Dreams...

On page 301 of 460...It has been days since I started reading it...Don’t know what’s holding me back! Can’t blame it entirely on my tests too! Then what is it? Well, I believe there are two reasons why you suddenly start taking so long time to finish reading a novel.

·        You don’t quite harmonize to what the author says. To put it in other words, you begin to lose your interest in the story! I’ve done this a time or two...Many say that I shouldn't leave a book half read but again I don’t find clinging to it, useful either!

·        You so much get engrossed in it that is to say ,when you start living the life of the fictitious characters ,you don’t want it to end! You forever wish to be a part of it. I am probably experiencing the same right now! I don’t want to meet up my end as Florentyna Rosnovski so shortly..!

As I flip each page of this mesmerizing 'The Prodigal Daughter', my respect for Jeffery Archer continues to grow and with it, it refreshes my childhood memories. A blur picture of the four-line notebook where I first wrote an appreciable essay titled "What if I were the President of India" and the reminiscences of my first speech in the school assembly which too, perchance, was titled "My Dream of becoming the President of India”!


Years of my life seem to have flipped up like yellowish pages of this book, all my dreams may have taken up the name of craziness or stupidity or childishness, but as they say, a good book will never leave you unlearnt ,it teaches me yet again,to what heights a dream can take you!
Maybe, that’s why we all love reading! Refreshes the forgotten and changes the unchanged!


                                                                  Happy Reading!
