Two very thought provoking quotes i read today...

Reference Book : The History of Love by Nicole Krauss

Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering. 
There are two types of people in the world: those who prefer to be sad among others, and those who prefer to be sad alone.


Tumhe jaate hue dekha har pal
Dil ne umeed na chori tere rukne kee

Dil baar baar toota par dua kam na hue
ab aise mein tumhe apna samjhun ya paraya

People drive you crazy. They always will.
Its not the situations. Its not the circumstances. Its not the moments. Its not the life. Its PEOPLE.

People make sure they drive you crazy in whichever way possible.

You fall in love with someone and go crazy.
You pick a fight with someone and go crazy.
You argue and go crazy.
You miss someone and go crazy.
You expect an answer from someone and when it doesn't come quickly, you go crazy.
You get an answer to your questions and the answers drive you crazy.

There is just no running away.
People are every where. They are all  around. You will be with one every moment and keep getting crazy.

Love crazy to Live Crazy!!

Short n sweet

सुनने में लगें चाहे कितनी अनूठी
पर बानंधती हैं दिलों को सिर्फ़
बातें छोटी छोटी

No matter how trivial something sounds 
but its only these small things that bind our hearts

People drive us crazy

"Strange as it may seem, other people are not nearly as committed to our happiness as we are. In fact, sometimes they seem like they're on a mission to make us miserable! There's always that one person. The one who hijacks your emotions and makes you crazy. The one who seems to thrive on drama. If you could just "fix" that person, everything would be better. But we can't fix other people--we can only make choices about ourselves. "

kyun tujhe har pal mein yaad karun
kyun dil se kabhi juda na karun
kya hai jo kheenche mujhe uss aur
lafzon mein kaise byaan mein karun

kyun har dua mein tera naam lun
kyun har khushi mein tujhe sang maangu
kyun har aansun mein dil aah bhare
khud ko kya kehke samzhaya karun

kyun har pal ka ehsaas hai yeh
kyun haar raat ka khawaab hai yeh
kaise sulzhaun yeh paheli mein
har khawaab lagta naya sa kyun

kyun kuch kehna mushkil lage
phir bhi kehna khatam na ho...
kyun tujhe mein itna yaad karun...
kyun tujhse mein itna pyaar karun...

Kuch Kaho Kuch Bolo Na

Kuch Kaho Kuch Bolo Na
Yeh khamoshi choro na
Yun hee saath chalna hai
kuch na kuch tum bolo na

Sapne sang hum dono ke
yeh dhun bhi hai milijuli
kya kehti yeh dil kee awaaz
kuch toh tum ab bolo na

Chaar kadam to chal hee liye
Baki chaar bhi chal lenge
Yun haath mera thama hai
Toh kuch na kuch tum bolo na

Roothi mein aur roothe tum
Waqt Nokjhok mein nikal chala
Hein to phir bhi dil se saath
Kya kehte ho kuch bolo na

Kuch Kaho kuch bolo na
Yeh Khamoshi choro na...

Unspeakable memories

I lie back and ponder
of grateful moments
of miraculous people
of generous smiles

I cry and I smile
over happy memories
heavy moments
and bighearted souls

I think about you
Thought about you
and day before

About keepsake memories
and heartfelt silence
Speaking your name
with picture in heart.

I laugh and I think
What greater thing is there
to strengthen each other
and rest in that feel

I drown in the sorrow,
and in all the pain,
longing to be with each other
in silent, unspeakable memories.

As my eyes open
& this Soul awakens...
with a heart full of love
I choose to live in present
and be ready for tomorrow!

Letter to sibling (Letter - 8)

Dear dear Big brother,

I searched & searched for something
To say to you today... But nothing was enough and no words said it the way i wanted to say. 
I wrote. I deleted. I remembered. I cherished. I laughed. I felt sad. 
Each one came as a flash back of happy life gone past. 

You are very special to me 
And i thank and pray for this special gift i got as a brother like you. 

The countless fights & attempts to annoy each other. Taking you for a ride on my back. Hitting you hard while you would not budge. Letting me play cricket in your boys' group. Enjoying evening snack made by you... Those are some cherished memories of having yummy homemade cutlets & tikkis made by you. 

Your ever eager attempt at annoying me by touching my plate with the tip of yoghurt filled spoon. You making fun of my friends. 

And that one week when you came home from college just to teach me maths before class 12th board exam. For that I owe you every penny i have earned till now :)

Your always positive attitude & convincing power. Your google like capabilities... A one stop shop for every information in the world :)

Your happiness on my wedding. Though I must ask you why were you so happy to see me go :) :) 

How you decorated all around with flowers & danced away till your feet were swollen & blistered yet you were smiling wide. 

I have only happy memories when i think of you. And i will treasure them forever. 

We dont see each other often now nor do we talk much. But you are always on my mind and i think about you every single day. 

When you said - "I will support you in everything without asking any questions" I knew i could not have been more blessed. 

Thanks for being a part of my life. Thanks for being that big brother every little girl wishes to have. 

I love you & i miss you!

Your little sister. 



Pat yourself
Few times extra

Care for self
A little more sweetly

Talk to yourself
A little more calmly

Smile at everyone
A little too often

Sparkle n shine
A little more brightly

Share a joke
With a little more joy

Begin a task
With a little more faith

Love yourself 
Just a little more

Live this day
Just a little more merrily

Life goes on...

An interesting metaphor i noticed this morning while sitting in bus for my usual commute to work.

Our life is also like a bus journey.

We get ready and take on the journey with a destination which only we have in our mind. We sit and ponder over each passing phase. Some of these phases we simply miss being lost in our own thoughts. At times we enjoy the views flashing past.

On the way we meet lots of fellow passengers travelling like us through life.
We share smiles with some. And we ignore some. We join one of these and share the space with an unsaid understanding of not to intrude in each other's space. Yet often we need to make this clear to some who  think they can enter our space and be part of our journey. At times this needs to be done with a stern face and tough mind. But its important. We dont give too many thoughts to this. We react as it seems befitting that moment. 

In this process sometimes we also connect with few. We share moments and thoughts and admire the surroundings a bit more. We make memories only to be put somewhere at the back of our minds and move on.
Some fellow passengers become part of our life for a certain phase and others as far as whole life. We share mutual feelings with those who travel with us longer. We share emotions like delays, being stuck, the sunny or gray weather at times, the thrill of speed or even the suffocation of the space.

At times the space seems like choking us... Giving us nausea too. We feel like this is the end of it. But we hang in there telling ourselves- "Little bit more, just a little bit more". Meanwhile longing for that gush of fresh air at every halt. 

A new memory, a new moment, a new emotion - all on the journey called life. 

Thus - Life goes on.....

Na jaane kaun hai!

Chalte chalte aksar yeh khayal aaya hai
Na jaane kaun hai jo chupke se dekh raha hai
Har kadam saath de raha hai
Bina awaaz bina chuye rah dikha raha hai 

Pal pal mein simat rahi ho zindagi jaise
Na jaane kaun hai jo hisaab laga raha hai
Har pal har saans ko jaise
Bin bataye bin pooche chala raha ho jaise

Life's crisis or human nature?!

Its a post i read long time back and could relate to it a lot. I read it again today and can still relate to it so much. 
We grow but out fears and doubts remain somewhat the same. We laugh we cry but our heart still yearns for something else always....


when we stop moving along with the main crowd and start realizing that there are many things about ourself that we didn't know and may not like. 

You start realizing that people are selfish and that, maybe,those friends that you thought you were so close to aren't exactly the greatest people you have ever met, and the people you have lost touch with are some of the most important ones.What you don't recognize is that they are realizing that too,and aren't really cold, catty, mean or insincere,but that they are as confused as you. 

You look at wat ur studyin or ur job... and it is not even close to what you thought you would be doing, or maybe you are looking for a job and realizing that you are going to have to start at the bottom and that scares you. 

Your opinions have gotten stronger. You see what others are doing and find yourself judging more than usual because suddenly you realize that you have certain boundaries in your life and are constantly adding things to your list of what is acceptable and what isn't. One minute, you are insecure and then the next, secure. 

You laugh and cry with the greatest force of your life. You feel alone and scared and confused. Suddenly, change is the enemy and you try and cling on to the past with dear life, but soon realize that the past is drifting further and further away, and there is nothing to do but stay where you are or move forward. 

You get your heart broken and wonder how someone you loved could do such damage to you. Or you lie in bed and wonder why you can't meet anyone decent enough that you want to get to know better.Or maybe you love someone but love someone else too and cannot figure out why you're doing this because you know that you aren't a bad person. 

Getting wasted and acting like an idiot starts to look pathetic. 

You go through the same emotions and questions over and over, and talk with your friends about the same topics because you cannot seem to make a decision. You worry about loans, money, the future and making a life for yourself... and while winning the race would be great, right now you'd just like to be a contender! 

What you may not realize is that every one reading this relates to it. We are in our best of times and our worst of times, trying as hard as we can to figure this whole thing out. 

All those who are in their thirty-something ... maybe it will help them feel like they aren't alone in their state of confusion... 


Someone somewhere...

Ponder! Think! Smile!

“Somewhere there is someone that dreams of your smile, and finds in your presence that life is worthwhile, so when you are lonely remember it’s true, someone somewhere is thinking of you.”
