Why do we lie to ourselves all the time? We keep on telling ourselves-we must do good in exams, we must be accepted at a reputed university, we must get a good job, we need a big house and a lot of other bullshit. We never thougt of these things when we were kids. Happiness doesnt depend on these superficial substances. All that we need to be happy is already with us. A beautiful partner, lovely kids, friends with whom we can share a drink at the local pub, a humble abode and a warm bed. Most of us are fortunate enough to have all these but still we are running in a rat race and for what? Stop lying to yourself. You are already happy and if not then you have all the ingredienta to be happy. Stop doing what the world wants you to and become what tou want to be.
Do not be responsible in your life. Be spontaneous and impulsive. Life is too small to take everything seriously. We are young, wild and free. Life should not be about regrets of not having done something rather it should be an accumulation of cherished memories. After all we have only one life to live. So why not live it on our own terms, why always do what others want us to? Why be a son or father or daughter or wife or husband? Why not just you? Exactly the way you want to be. Paint if you want to paint or sing or write or sculpt or whatever that brings you peace and tranquility. This is your life, live it for yourself and not others. Happy living people
It has been quite a while since i posted anything. My life was in fast forward mode these last couple of months. I barely had anytime to write or do anything creative. However it is new year hence it is a new beginning. I wish to spend more time with myself this year. I wish to read more and write more. I want to meet new people, make new friends, learn how to cook, spend more time with family and try out new exotic dishes. I am feeling positive. The world seems such a nice place with so many surprises. It feels like the angels are singing in my ears. 2013 was a very good experience hoping for an even more dramatic and surprising 2014. Happy new year
Christmas is a very special time indeed. Christmas is the time for family, for presents and well wishes. Christmas has the ability to make you smile, make you happy. It is the feel good festival; we forget all our worries, even if just for one day, to have that very special dinner with our friends and family, to open presents placed below the decorated Christmas tree, sing carols and thank God for blessing us such a wonderful life.
But Christmas to me is much more than that, to me it is about giving, sharing and helping others. Christmas is about making the homeless child realise that he is not alone. it is about helping the elderly bake the cookies and cakes. This holy day commemorates the birth of Christ and I think there is no better day to execute whatever the lamb of God has preached us.
This Christmas season I have decided to feel blessed and make others feel blessed. I have decided to make others happy so that I can at least have a chance of being happy. And on this note I ask all of you to do just one thing. Be a Santa for someone who needs happiness. Fulfil their wishes, make them believe in magic, in fairy tales and in happy endings.
A Merrier Christmas to all of you.
Words have immense power. Sometimes in the heat of the movement you say stuff that you actually didnt mean but like an arrow shot from the bow you cannot take back you words. I realised this fact the hard way yesterday. I felt really bad. All couldnt sleep all night. The incident kept on replaying in my head. Now i feel like a coward because i dont have the courage to apologise to my friend. What should i do? What is the right thing to do?
A pic from last night celebrations. Deepawali is the festival of lights in India. Hindus celebrate by lighting candles and decorating their homes with lights. The day is deep rooted in hindu belief. It is the day when prince Ram returned Ayodhya after defeating the evil lord Ravan to rescue his devoted wife-Sita
