So, this morning I was waiting at the bus stop. There was a teenage couple standing next to me and they were having a lovey dovey conversation which I happened to overhear!
He - I am so gonna bunk this lecture today.
She - And, do what?
He - Probably come to your class and make you bunk yours.
She - Really? Sounds interesting! What do we both do then?
He - Just spend time together. I like being around you. The only one around you.
She - That's so cute! You know who I want to be in your life?
He - Who?
She - I want to be that person whose B'day you remember without looking at Facebook. That special!
Hmmm! The definition of love has truly changed!
Roamer, Wanderer, Nomad, Vagabond!
Call me what you will!
Sometimes all you need to do is relax and change your point of view! The problems are like a mirage! A change in the point of vie and whoosh! They vanish :)
I am not sure if it was well thought or happened just by coincidence but Autumn is a season which we encounter towards the end of the year.
The trees shed their leaves and embark on a new beginning. The birds look for new trees to build their nests. Animals like squirrels also make a move to comparatively greener trees.
These activities of animals may not amuse us humans much. But, all of thrse activities have a clear meaning. A sign - that you should start afresh. Leave the old memories behind. Shed the bad habits and inculcate new and good ones. And strive for a better life when the new year begins.
They met at a party for the first time. A very small get together. He couldn't keep his eyes off her, but he was shy.
It has been 6 years now. They still meet at the parties. Not much has changed except that she has aged a bit, aged perfectly. Now, he can't keep his lips off her!
- Let's love humans and not things.
- Let's visit a real beach and not an artificial one.
- Let's gift someone a smile and not an expensive showpiece.
- Let's thank Mother Earth and start caring for her.
- Let's ditch hypocrisy.
- Let's give up one bad habit.
- Let's thank our parents for what they have made us.
- Let's learn to love.
- Let's make this world a better place.
Happy New Year :)
How I long for the sunshine,
All I get though, is mist and snow from nine to nine,
These days I pray, pass away soon,
Oh! how I want to wander bare feet neath the moon!
And yet another day was lived,
Continually challenging time,
To witness this nuanced human existence,
Just for a moment..
And time in all its glory,
Paused this day,
Looked into my eyes and smiled,
I asked 'why today?'
It pointed at my side,
And carried on it's eternal journey..
And there standing next to me,
Was a friend Time could never have....
To the day that begun with bountiful of ice creams!
To my friend who offered me company!
To the lil kid who jumped all around me singing in glee!
To the ' oh is this winter? wala Mumbai's winter' and to 'oh can winter not be just winter? wala Delhi 's winter'!
To all the lands, waters, Sun,Moon and every petty thing around!
THANK YOU for this beautiful day 😊😊
Autocorrect is a funny thing. Apart from assisting us in day to day writing, this wonderful human invention sprinkles a hint of humour in day to day conversations. How? Well, it thrives on comedy of errors.
The autocorrect, the greatest comedian of modern times, should not be mistreated. Because, once it unleashes it's wrath on you, the embarrassment you face will be immense and the wonderful (really?) human invention will have the last laugh!
Her youth -
Like wedded bliss,
fragrance of roses,
a sad song, is short lived!
It started as a feeble flame,
With such care we nurtured the same,
the flame grew fiercer and strong,
Like a forest fire, burning all year long!
Little did I realise that to keep this fire burnin'
It takes a great amount of passion and yearnin'
A part of you and a part of me,
Consumed in the flame, Like Adonis and Aphrodite!
But, somewhere between all this I forgot,
If the fire is so intense, there will be smoke - a lot,
I still wonder what made you choke,
Was it the smoke or the fact that I was broke,
You called for help and he heeded,
Came for your rescue with everything you ever needed,
Took you away, this saviour of yours,
leaving behind for me, grains of ash, fine and coarse!
You may ...
You! Hey you! You wanna make your life interesting?
You wanna stop cribbing about how pathetic your life is?
Well, then stop thinking and SHOW UP! :)
So, we all have met someone in out life who is from a different country and has grown up in a different culture. But, they're smitten with your country! That's a good thing, however, there are a lot of myths associated with each country which prevents tourists and explorers to wander freely.
On lettrs, we have people from all the countries (Most of them if not all of them). So, let's each of us bust a myth about our country and bring the people of the world closer!
I'll start with India.
Unlike popular belief, India is not a land of the snake charmers. Its one of the fastest growing economies offering courses and jobs in a variety of professions. No, the cows don't wander on the streets in...
'You're imperfect!' She told him.
The boy looked at her - baffled. 'I never thought I would have to spend my life with someone so imperfect!' The girl carried on the ranting.
He just gazed at her, not saying a word. Amazed at how blunt his girl is!
'Yes! You're imperfect and that's the best thing about you! Look at gold, or silicon, or any of the precious metals! Look at the air! Look at petroleum! Look at everything around you! They all have imperfections and impurities and that's what make them so previous and useful! Please, never change because I am in love with your imperfection!'
He took her to this theme party last night. They were dressed in the finest costumes.
However, after a few drinks she couldn't hold the mask in place and it fell down. A mask she had held perfectly for so many years.
The last week of No Shave November is here! Let's keep up the spirit and end The month in style!
Keep calm and grow a beard.
When you have nothing better to do, or when anything you do doesn't work out right - Don't panic.
Kill zombies! :P
And we keep on waiting! Waiting for the world to change!
I know that you don't know me, but I wanna wish you a speedy recovery! Get well soon :)
She : I have something to tell you, love!
He : Go ahead, babe.
She : You remember that day at the docks? How I forced you to get into that abandoned boat and pretend like we're going far away! Far away from this world!
He : Yeah I do! What about it?
She : And you also remember that we took the abandoned boat to the middle of the sea?
He : Well, you wished for it! What's the concern there? I think the boat was in a pretty good shape.
She : No! You were busy trying to serenade me and you failed to notice the crack in the boat. We were sinking, though at a gradual pace. We could have died!
He : Oh darling! Have I told you that when I am with you my mind isn't the same as it is otherwise? ...
Some thing I wrote about one of my darkest fears in life:
Everything about her has amused me,
Her complexity, simplicity or whatever it may be,
I've always been timid to confront her and ask,
Why does she always assign me the toughest task,
Like a good boy, I take it up,
When I fail, she pats me like her pup!
Oh holy Goddess! I've been your priest,
Bestow me, make the tasks a little easier at least!
You've had numerous preys now,
I have become one too, I don't know how,
Perhaps the curves, the angles and the lines of the road I took,
Which took me to your temple by the brook,
Are responsible for my demise,
Please! DO NOT initiate a reprise,
Drop you weapon of surprise!
Note to self:
Young'un! Remember! You don't have to prove anything to anyone. Take life as it comes. Steal moments of joy to spend with friends and family. Love your mom and dad. Love the people who care for you. Care for them in return.
Learn to ignore. Learn not to get infuriated when someone purposely tries to annoy you. Learn to forgive. Learn to forget. Move on. Embrace the nicer things in life and leave behind the sadness.
Live. Just live!
And remember, when nothing goes right, come back and read this note again!
