An alien observer

A few seemingly small but ironically significant things I have realized to occur unexpectedly frequently along my ephemeral but eventful life..

1. Aware of it or not... we spend most of our time thinking about and valuing the things we dont have and covet... in stupid stead of the ones that are ours...
Be it, that BMW, babe or just-out-of-reach bliss..

kehte hai na... "door ke dhol ke suhaane lagte hai"... but do rem tht 'all tht glitters aint gold'!

And ironically enuff.. most of us only realize the preciousness of a thing at the brink of losing it. Only a few lucky ones are smart enough to recognize this before its too late...

2. While having varied regions, events and timelines... amazingly our lives do share certain momentous phenomenon.... being a child, growing up, fighting n working hard to achieve something... failing n falling hard only to be inspired to get back up again... feeling love for a non-kin, rejection, acceptance, return of love, having a child, losing a loved one, takin control of one's life, being the pillar, feeling the transition into the older generation, guiding the ones we care for and who care to listen, growing up, being a child again....

3. While we feel attracted to, and believe our friends to be the ones we laugh and have fun with.. the true friends are in front of whom we arent afraid to cry... have no walls.. and share the deepest secrets...

As Einstein said "'Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute."

Time seems relative.. but in hindsight.. everything seems in damn Fast Fwd...
Life can be amazingly short ppl... LIVE IT!!! n live it to the MAX...

Dont wait for a movie like bucketlist to wake u up... dont be afraid to do crazy wacky things... work hard , party harder!!!

5. There just aint no 'maikalaal' that doesnt have problems...
Only thing is... ouR PROBLEMS seem bigger....n often instead of acTION , we take TENSION...
Id just say : 'do ur best.. dont worry abt the rest'!!

Fantastic Trip
Another place my philosophical side takes me to sometimes, and makes all problems look minuscule is like an observer viewing us... zooming out... from our perspective... to our family... to our block.. to our city... to our state... to our country.. to our continent... to our planet... to our orbit... to our solar system.. to our galaxy.. to the billions of galaxies present perpetually.....
How significant is our existence??? Universally.. what effect does me getting an A or B have?? How big r our problems??


6. MUSIC has a much much deeper impact on us.. our moods.. our emotions than we realize... I truly believe that the right music can inspire, entertain, lift our moods, heal.................us..

bahut heavy stuff ho gaya....bas abhi itna hi... off to nescy for a snack :)

Happy days

If you can dream and not make dreams your master..
If you can think and not make thoughts your aim...
If you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two impostors just the same..
If you can fill the unforgiving minute with 60 seconds of distance travelled..
Yours is earth and everything in it,
and whats more... you will be a man, my son!!


video

Amazingly, it is only 2 mins ago that I finished watching this greatly-appreciated-by-friends-Telugu movie, 'Happy Days' (with Eng subtitles).. and i cant cease to wonder why i didnt watch it before... Not for the first time, I felt something inside me change... :

There was this small boy once, innocence personified... in school..
who believed in only good deeds.. and expected only good ppl, the big fool...
used to believe in good morals and principles..
used to follow them too..
despite all odds.. despite all opposition...

even at that tender age,
his will to try and do no wrong was commendable..
no abuses..
no vices..
whats more.. he used to stop others too..
which we thought would annoy them..
but quite later on found it was respect...

believed in true friends..
innocence resulted in him being oblivious...
ditched by some, used by some...
saw the same happen elsewhere too..

shattered his belief and trust..
and fawned a resilient fear and distrust..
thought true friends , true love -> not real..

forced into becoming practical..
and guarded..

-----------------

time and tide didnt wait for anyone..
and years passed on...

but one thing did not change..
his will to change, improve, become better everyday..

like everyone, he was human too..
but the moment he realized a mistake..
tried to correct it..
trespassed thru both sides of confidence..
only to correct himself from time to time...

the striving for perfection,
the constant drive to improve...
turns out to be out of reach..
but also comes with it the realization..
that its not the destination but the journey that truly matters...



Its unbelievable how the smallest of things can touch you the most sometimes...
lookin bak... and just after a refreshing movie like this.. he realizes a lot of things..

You truly have knowledge, only when you can acknowledge your lack of knowledge..


1.To truly feel the wind, you have to expose your inner side..
Its true.. true love and true friendship are rare and hard to find..

but maybe, its worth the trouble finding out...
maybe its worth, being a true friend everytime.. no matter how many times you are disappointed... for its like a lottery.. you win once.. you win big!! and hey... tell u a secret...
its giving which is always...always more satisfying... :)

'a friend might not know the value of friendship,
but at least you can know!'

The world's not really about give and take..
Its about sharing, feeling , enjoying and livind the hell of a roller-coaster it is...!!


2. If you truly believe in something,
stand up for it... no matter what the opposition..!
there's a reason why there are so few leaders and revolutionaries and so many followers...

The true reason is, that most people bend to fear so much so as to suffer in silence..
Though, at all times, also use your brain.. the reach of the intellect is far greater..


forgive my senti mood at the moment... sometimes comes...
thats me! :)

but think this is a turning point...
more so, b'coz.. publishing such a post only makes it more concrete...

Probably many wont read this post ever...
but would just like to thank everybody in my life..
for making my life so very beautiful... :)

aisa kyun hota hai kabhi kabhi??

aisa kyun hota hai kabhi kabhi ki
hum gir gir ke hi chalna seekhte hai..?

aisa kyun hota hai kabhi kabhi ki
baarish ke baad hi rainbow dikhta hai...?

aisa kyun hota hai kabhi kabhi ki
rone ke baad bhi achcha lagta hai...?

aisa kyun hota hai kabhi kabhi ki
we realize the value of something only at the brink of losing it..?

aisa kyun hota hai kabhi kabhi ki
galtiyaan hi sahi raasta dikha deti hai hamein...?

aisa kyun hota hai kabhi kabhi ki
we meet our destiny on the same road we take to avoid it...?

aisa kyun hota hai kabhi kabhi ki
the greatest barrier to success proves to be the fear of failure..?

aisa kyun hota hai kabhi kabhi ki
pyaar ko suppress karne se woh aur badh jaata hai..?.

aisa kyun hota hai kabhi kabhi ki
absence makes the heart go fonder...?

aisa kyun hota hai kabhi kabhi ki
dil khone pe lagta hai ki kuch paa liya hai...?

aisa kyun hota hai kabhi kabhi ki
falling in love feels like rising in life...?

aisa kyun hota hai kabhi kabhi ki
being with sum1 feels like the world...?

aisa kyun hota hai kabhi kabhi ki
kisi anjaan ka dukh apna lagta hai...?

aisa kyun hota hai kabhi kabhi ki
hum apno ko hi chot pahuncha dete hai...?

aisa kyun hota hai kabhi kabhi ki
kisi apne ke aasoon, apne aasuon se zyaada chubhte hai..?

Aisa Kyun Kota Hai Kabhi Kabhi Ki
hum itne sawaalon ke jawaab dhoondte hai...???
