The STORM

Stop . 
Right there.
And breathe. Obviously you have been doing that for at least a few decades so it must be easy. 
So don’t just breathe. Feel your breath. Feel the fresh oxygen going into your body , doing its job and providing you energy to carry on. Feel the body throw out the carbon dioxide. Feel its warmth. 
Kudos. 
There! You spent one second of your life in the most relaxed way possible. 
And if you continue to do this for even a minute, you will know that “relax” is an understatement. This simple exercise is the most easiest way to rejuvenate yourself instantly.

The next question that comes up is “What exactly is your point Miss ?”

This exactly.
The involuntary need of speed we have almost imbibed in our system. To be always, always in a hurry. Whether its you ,whether its me , we all want things right here, right now!!! And there are no reasons to it. Its just a fact, a herd mentality where none of us wants to be left behind. 

Talking of herd mentality, although it is something looked down by us Human beings, it is just one of the ways we resemble the entire working system of nature and other beings. 
We know the basics- need for food, attention and sunlight.:P 

I want to draw your attention to the similarity of the storms of nature and humans. 
Storms of nature , as defined by humans, refer to violent disturbances of atmosphere, that bring about destruction, more often than not. 

There are innumerable instances in our life ,when we have these exact disturbances spiralling within us with such high intensities that even we tend to destroy all that comes into our path , metaphorically and sometimes literally as well 😛 .
And what is the end of it all? Only wastage. Wasted energy , wasted time and wasted peace of mind. 

Well , the nature does what it has to do. 
But we are humans- the same beings who haughtily pat ourselves on our backs, for we have the best evolved brains and make the most optimum use of them. 
Then WHY do we do this ???

If we have been able to utilise the energy of the wind and the sun and the tides, why do we not utilise our own energy ?

Take a moment to digest the levels of efficiency and overwhelming positivism at the very least , that could result if we harnessed our energies in the right direction.
If instead of throwing and breaking things , we instead decide to better organise them?
If instead of shouting and screaming, we dance it all out or do an impromptu karaoke?
If instead of blaming every body and every thing, we assume it was our fault and work to improve that? 
Or the simplest of all , just take a moment right then and there to feel our life. Slow calm breathing with a look-back on our own story. On how have we actually contributed to our story ? On if we actually were the Hero of our own life?

These are not Herculean tasks after all, although for sure they do look much easier in writing.  

But is it not better to try it out for our own sake and see the results? What if we do have the potential to be able to do this ? What if these storms are just a sign of the impending and freshening Rains of our story ??

As Louisa May Alcott puts it

I am not afraid of the storms for I am learning how to sail my ship . 

 

P.S Writing in response to the prompt of the day STORM

 

 

 

 

 

 

A little tip :)

I have  been really busy these days.
Not been able to keep up with my own challenge.
And like all failures teach you something,this did too.
Dream big for sure,but  remember to be realistic and practical. And oh always ,always have a plan B!”.

Well that’s my learning, not every one will agree to this thought.
You need not to,too.

What is more important for you All to agree and realise is that ,we must learn from everything.
Failure,success or term it anything,we must keep on learning and keep on growing.

Feeling dejected will never help.

Understanding the problem,improving on it, learning definitely will 😃

Shortage of time , forces me to conclude here itself. And since a picture says a thousand words ,here I am sharing a quote I came across which should be the life mantra of one and all.

Cheers to a happy life 😍😇

The new word of the town *OFFENDED*

Offended? Really that’s all you got ? May be you could have tried “Bored ” Or  “Tired” Or even  the F word! But , why offended darling ?

Well , this is  in reference to the latest Tanmay Bhatt CONTROVERSY. For the uninformed, this guy is a stand up comedian , who made a FUN Video about two Indian celebrities and posted it on social media. The fans of these celebrities got ” offended ” by it and want it removed. 

I really don’t know whether its real public who express their anger on such “Issues” or are they the ” Robots” we always have to prove we aren’t by entering those captchas ?? 

Because this fact is quite disturbing. No , not the existence of robots on Facebook.

But the fact that even in this age and time people got so much free time and emotions that their sentiments get hurt on  each and every joke that is ever made?

Do they Google the most silly thing present today, watch it and then get offended? 

Because ,lets make things clear first. I personally did not find the video even funny. Neither did my friends ( I made them watch it 😛 )  There was no joke .   😦
 And may be that’s the only thing i was hurt about. My expectations not being fulfilled. 

This has become a trend, specially in India. Not only in regard to this video, its just a needle in the haystack! People are using their “Right to speech” to take away other’s right to speech . 

Oh , you say it’s not Good for the society ?

Well yes. There are many things not good for the society. Unlike them , this has a solution. Don’t like it? DONT WATCH IT . Simple 🙂

Because if you were really worried about the society , you would have long gone ,thanks the heart attacks and nervous breakdowns you would have suffered.

Because you would have been hurt ,each time a girl was raped.Whether she was wearing a skirt or whether she was a 2 year old kid !

There would have been a threat to your religious sentiments, each time an innocent animal was sacrificed in the name of faith! And not when a person poked fun at some Godman.

 It would have pained you to see dirty naked little tiny kids beg on the streets in the scorching summer. And then get elated even on receiving a single rupee.

Your anger would have lost its limits when you would have come across the crores of taxpayer’s money being used by corrupt politicians for their Birthday celebrations. Not when a Bollywood movie was made .

You would have been offended when a young Indian sport-star was unable to represent his country , not for the lack of talent , but for the lack of proper infrastructure . And not when someone wore a skirt to her tennis match ..

Trust me , you would have been offended by humanity , every time you read that another bomb was dropped off in Syria or Pakistan or Palestine or  some other place. (Only that would have happened , in case you were actually aware that the world does not revolve around you  🙂 )

And since you are alive and kicking, I am sure none of this happened. There was never an outrage over any of these. Do not mention the various Tweets or Re-tweets or Facebook posts you have shared for the cause. The truth is , they DON’T MATTER . ( Heart breaking , is it ? ) 

 This only  proves you don’t bat an eye lid for the cause of the society.
You are one bored human , who wants cheap publicity by misusing other people’s names.

Calling me selfish , are you ? Well, I will take that as a compliment.  It’s better than being a dual faced hypocrite . Any day!. Try it out  🙂 


P.S
 This does not mean I support non sense humour. I just don’t violently oppose it. These people work for trps.  Dont trend them on media , they will understand and give you better jokes next time 😀 

 

Loving it ??

DAY 11 :

Love is in the air everywhere I look around
Love is in the air every sight and every sound

 

And i mean this literally. Word by word.

With exams over and a few hours of relief before other presentations, i was lying in my room ,randomly surfing the world wide web. Its a web actaully! takes you ages and low battery or no Wifi to come out of it! 😛

Anyways, there i was using Facebook , Instagram , Pinterest  all simultaneously. It was when this thought struck me.
The world is stuck.
Yes , We may be delivering Beers to our friends via drones ! 😛 , but still every other quote or post you come across  today is about one thing only. LOVE.

Take a really pretty picture of either a couple or a landscape, throw in some heavy words , add the Moon and waves to it and there you have a new creation . About how love is a blessing. Or about how love is depressing! 

The entire world around has focussed its attention to just one facet of the magic called LOVE.  There is a guy, a girl , they love , they go apart and so on so forth. 
And this makes me laugh! Sometimes i do get really irritated too , but being the girl I am, i just laugh about it 😛

Is this ALL it is?
By all means NO!  I feel we all must stand up and tell the younger generation this is not all loving is about.  Love is not so black and white. And definitely , Love is not restricted.
Then what is, you may ask? 

Well , I believe love is when you return home after a long time and your pet can’t wait to be all over you. 

Love is when you not  only let your sibling irritate you ,but you also do their work after it ❤

Love is when your mother listens to you complain about the whole world and then makes you cookies to cheer you up . 

Love is when your father tries to act all c-o-o-l and funny in family gatherings 😛 

Love is when you make your teacher proud.

Love is when you listen your friend cry . Love is when you tease your friends and make them cry  !
Love is to get lost in that book , all curled up  and cosy . 

Love is the freedom to live your life your way . 😀 

Love is when you watch all episodes of a series at a stretch and get lost in that fantasy world. 

Love is dancing with your friends. Love is being possessive about your friends  😛

Love is sudden plans and tasty food. 
 Love is cheering for your home team , from 1000 miles away , through a television screen! 😀 

Yes the feeling of growing close to that special someone, getting lost in their thoughts and talks, wanting to spend every moment of your life with them is nothing less than a magical blessing. It is indeed love. ❤ .

Love is caring. Love is caring ( Cheesy enough?  😛 )

So go on , live a loving life. Laugh a lot, cry less , be happy . Fall in love, fall out of love <3.
Because there are no limits to LOVE  😀

P.S As far as I am concerned , Love is knowing that two ladies are upset from me as i won’t be able to meet them , before I head off to another city next week . Ayushi , Mini ❤ 😀 

No more no NO!!

Peppy Notes !!

The study of nano particles , their physics and their interactions with biological membranes is not difficult.

The calculations of Budgets and Taxable income are not difficult.

Standing on one leg for a day is not difficult.

And then you may ask , if this is easy, then what is difficult??

The most difficult thing is the ART OF SAYING NO. you could call it science too , but I like it this way 😛

The values and morals engraved in us have taught us everything , but, to say no.

Not for all though. There are some great fellows who have mastered this art very well. so well that they blatantly refuse to do things , without even a little respect for others, absorbed in their own little world. This is even in matters , when both a no and yes would not affect them.

let me talk to…

Epitome : Daily prompt

They all followed her about. Treating her as a goddess. She was so pretty after all. Beautiful eyes , silky hair , glossy lips and that perfect touch of make up. See her any time of the day and she was the same. We could  call her the Epitome of Beaut…..Oh no. Not we.
You could.
I could.
But not him.
He knew she was the Epitome of Fakeness.
He was her stylist !

The NEWS and THE PAPER

Day 08 : IBMC CHALLENGE #07

You are going to pick up a news paper article. Either online or take a snapshot from the hard copy paper. Use appropriate reference for the article you have used. You need to debate and discuss your view points on the selected article. How best can you do? You can pick up any category like general, politics, entertainment, etc”

Well, the challenge is  called THE NEWS AND PAPER CHALLENGE. And this is the clipping i am using for it .

HOW POWERFUL IS FACEBOOK

Screenshot (9)

The irony of the situation though! 😛

Its official now that most of the people (62% in US ) get their news updates from Social media.
The study says 44% of US citizens use Facebook  as their source of events and happenings.

newcc
This does not mean that if we are not from US, we don’t. Its just that the study was done there. You can always do a poll of yours. Survey your near and dear ones, and you will find the same result. The percentage may even be higher ( yes, that’s because of maths 😛 ).

The question of the hour is why should this bother us? (After all we are only interested in news about the leaked GOT episode !!!  😛   😉 ).

I don’t know about you (as of now, share your opinions and then i will 😀 ) but somehow this trend disturbs me. I am not saying its wrong. But its not completely right either!

Yes, it has its own share of benefits . It saves the most precious human desire : TIME. You get instant updates about every event around the world. You don’t have to wait for the next day’s paper . And, most importantly you can share and know about other people’s opinions on the matter. In fact , the Facebook programme of marking people safe after any disaster is a commendable initiative . 🙂

But (There is Always a BUT ) there are definite drawbacks to this trend.
The very first being the authenticity .
With every person around the globe , literally , having the power to share anything with the world, it has become very easy for nuisance mongers to spread rumours.Only for fun . Or for publicity.

There is no way you can rely on the truthfulness of the subject, unless it appears in the daily ! The news paper is accountable for its actions. A fake FB profile isn’t .

And being the vocal society we are ,no one bats an eyelid before forming opinions on the basis of these news.
Forming an opinion is fine.
Sharing it with others is also welcome.
But publicly shaming someone on the basis of Evidence from Facebook . That’s the height of stupidity.
In this age and date ,it is a child’s play to morph images and create videos. But it takes a mature human’s sensibility whether to rely on it or not.

With the use and spread of social media , the entire purpose of presenting News is also slowly changing. The Facebook pages of leading Indian dailies and news channels are not concerned about increasing awareness of its readers. Rather its purpose has become sensationalising events to “earn” more likes.

I am not saying social media is a bad place full of pranksters and “hear -me-cos-I-can-abuse” type of people . No . I myself will share this blog post on FB to get more readership. And this blog itself ! helps me connect with so many like minded people from around the world  🙂

All i am saying is let NEWS be a point of discussion here. NOT THE FINAL WORD.

 

 

Peppiness level : Fan girling !!

If you read my last post Such Is Life ( read it if you didn’t😋 ) you get an idea about my mood a few hours back.
Yes I was upset about certain things really close to my heart not happening the way they should have .
But writing it all out and reading nice words by my friends from blogosphere did cheer me up😘😊😇

So all I had to do now was pep up my mood.

And that’s easy. Either start swiping through the photo collection on my phone ( a really nice ,mean , sarcastic collection I have 😏) or do some research work on the laptop.

And yes this research work in real world is called Fan-Girling .😂😍💃
17ca1fcd6c390b85b331c1e745d62eda

Now for me there two ways to do my deep study
1. Binge watch
2. Social media stalking which basically means Pinterest😂

There are certain facts that should be cleared right at this stage:
1.  In real life I am ( or plan to be actually) a one man woman 👫
2. All the feelings I henceforth declare are for the character and not for the actor. I mean i do like the actor, but it’s the character that drives me crazy.

Coming back to the point,there are these three men who can sweep me off to the wonderland any and every time of the day. 😍
All they have to do is appear. Works fine even on the screen.!

So lets begin . In no particular order though. I don’t differentiate among the love for my men 😂😂

  • Damon Salvatore. (The Vampire Diaries)

    3f265874e55862c4e07830a4425b6a3c 
    This man is the definition of sexy.
    And the blue eyes of Ian only make it superlative😍
    The way he looks at Elena makes me go week in the knees.!
    8dae2a64475d14c658f6e15f6e7039a3

    He is mean for the world and would kill anyone from this world who even thinks of harming his loved ones. Yes,he may kick his brother once or twice but nobody else has the right to even pick as much as one hair from Stefan’s body.
    His quick witty comebacks and those smooth smirks…who has the power to resist those? 😉
    And oh the hurt he keeps within himself. Trying to be the bad guy always. Turning out to be the saviour always .
    Remember the season finale he died? I remember it so well. Was literally unable to eat or sleep that day !

  •  Harvey Specter ( Suits)
    d9102085722105ebc938284acca3860e

                                                         He is as suave as the word itself.

    His confidence turns me on 😉.
    a002678241d71c17fea47befda81fe3d
    Polished,poised,charming the dictionary falls short of adjectives for him.
    Atleast mine does. 😍

    He has raised the bars of my expectations from my future boss too high😂.

    And have you seen his apartment? I would give anything to wake up with that view ! 😉


Call it crazy or not , I had once even planned my entire journey to Harvard last year 😂😂. 

 

  • Stefan Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries )
    166678d1bfc5d1d8203fe4688042dbd9

    As sweet as sugar and every thing nice …la la la la aaaa llaa 😍😘

    Okay, if looks could kill , Stefan would have been responsible for my death a few years ago 😂.

    I really wonder if he is too good to be even real in a fictional show.
    e62e66ce49be388afbc33dba41e14258
    Like seriously, a vegetarian Vampire ? That’s such an ” aawww” moment😇😂

    Stefan never had to speak much.

    His eyes and smile told me of his love 😉😂

    Man! Leave apart a vampire ,I am dating an alien if it’s him 👽

Why do I like them? And why do they pep up my mood?

Well it’s very simple.

These men are too perfect to exist in real life . ❤

Watching them and getting lost in them gives me a much needed break from all the reality I need to face.
And when I am back , I have this new positivity and hope inside me.😃.
Or if not I have my one billion dollar smile back with me 😀😀 ( what?……Me? …..  Self obsessed…no !!! 😂😂😂)

P.S Seeing my blog post over and over again myself! Drooling all the way 😛 😛
