Mangal Mangal ....

Our society is simply amazing .

Here we get two people married, who forget love, even don't know each other well and expect that this marriage will work for sure as their Kundlis match . And at the same time we won't let two people marry who love each other , who happen to know each other for more than year , just because their kundlis don't match and the astrologer has "predicted" that the marriage won't work.

Is it justified ? How can kundli's or astrology determine some people's future? Does people whose kundli match in all respects don't have problems in their marriage or if they decide to spend their life just on what is predicted from Kundli without making efforts , their marriage will work?

Nope it won't . But still why our elders are so hell bent on doing things as per astrology? Why don't they understand that a relation is successful based on the willingness and efforts of the parties involved.

Rakshabandhan ...

It was Rakshabandhan today and it was my first one on which I was not with my Didibhai. But nevertheless she had mailed me the Rakhis already.(See the Pic above)

Rakshabandhan is that day on which a Sister ties a Rakhi on her Brother's hand praying for his long and prosperous life and the brother in turn vow to protect her throughtout the life.

Over the years this tradition has elevated from Brother-Sister to friends, Father-Daughter, even Husband-Wife, even MahaStri used to tell me that she will tie a Rakhi on her husband's hand and I always used to text her or greet her on this day but anyways....

One thing that I feel about Brother and Sister relation is that when we are kids we have a different kind of relation i.e. we are at times jealous of each other or we get angry when we see our parents favor the other one more (in fact most of the times its our own imagination) but as we grow up and become more responsible we somehow get over all those feelings and we share a strong mutual love and respect for each other. I am not saying its not present when we are kids but these are more predominant as we mature.

As we grow up, for a guy his sister is someone for whom he wants to care all the time, to whom he wants to give everything that she wants and this feeling is same irrespective of whether you are elder or younger to her and in the same way for a girl his brother is the best person around, the one on whom she rely or trust the most.

Somehow these feelings are not there or visible when we are kids . Childhood is spent more in disturbing each other and as we grow up all that takes back seat and you just take this relation to another level.

Wishing my Sister A Very Happy Rakshabandhan and May God Bless Her Always :)

Treated myself to a Bournville and I believe the first extravagant thing that I have ever treated myself to. Actually wanted to have a chocolate and this was only one available at the office shop.

The advertisement for Bournville shows that before you have it you should ask yourself  Whether you have earned it ? and if you have then only you should devour it.
Man after shelling out Rs 80 from your pocket for it you definitely can say ya I have earned it .

Who Cares??

So strange most of the time I am surrounded by people to whom it doesn't matter whether I am happy or sad? In fact I am damn sure that for most it won't even matter if I am dead or alive. But still why do we care for their affection or attention?

God n Me .. II

Hey God,

At this very moment I hate you. I know I will be begging at your feet in future for your kindness, help , love etc but at this very moment I am really angry with you. 

Don't have much to say but really angry.

God n Me ...

Will recall some lines that had been characteristic of my life earlier too and today too these are finding it hard to leave me alone

"Aaj phir dil ne ek tamanna ki, Aaj phir dil ko humne samjhaya"

"Aadmi aadmi se milta hai, par dil yahan kisi kisi se milta hai. Bhul jaata hun uska har ek sitam, wo kuch is saadgi se milta hai"

Of late myself and God has developed a funny relation too. Every now n then God plays small jokes with me and the worst part is that God never leaves me any option other than to laugh along.

One thing I can't do in bus, unlike others, is to fall asleep. I really long to sleep in bus so that I can pass those dreaded minutes as soon as possible but I am seldom able to do so , be it morning or evening. So today as I was feeling little heavy in my head I tried and by God's grace I started feeling sleepy. But as God's wish when I was floating on the threshold of sleep just then my phone rang. And it was someone whom I can label as the last person whose call I ever expect and that too about something totally unexpected. And after forget sleeping I can't even sit easy.

When I am reading, I don't understand why I ever stop doing that.

New Look ...

Of late I have started surfing other people's (read people I don't know) blog again. And after seeing and reading those, I have realized that even though I am going to complete 300 posts soon but I am no where near being called a blogger.

Lets forget about the content and the huge number of followers they have , the way they have structured and presented their posts is really commendable.

So I have too decided that I will now start presenting my posts in a better way. To start with I will start putting a photo along with my posts and will try to make sure that most of them are clicked by me. In that way I will also be able to fulfil my desire of capturing moments myself. I will start using a new tag "My Clicks" in those posts so that people can now that I have myself clicked those. Plus I will update most of the already published posts too with the photos.

Also I will try to increase the followership of my blog but for that I think I really need to work on the content I write about.

Anyways I do plan to write a lot from now onwards.

So fasten your seat belts and enjoy the burpy ride :)

Love Birds :)

Now a days with the raining season going on, a pair of Pigeons come and sit on our bathroom window, trying to keep themselves dry.

The sight always fascinate me to click a photo which I did and thus sharing.

Its more endearing to see them sit their at night all bundled and somewhat scared.

Wish I could click that too but due to poor light and angle I can't . The flash totally ruins the setting and its also no good in capturing the real essence.

I don't want to go to school ...

Every morning when I wait for my friend in front of my apartment , I can see a bunch of children waiting with their mothers for their school buses. So among those kids there are a couple of brothers one of whom has just started going to school. So everyday he comes down crying and wailing. Although he doesn't speak much but I can sense him saying I don't want to go to school. So this reminds me of my school days. When I too just started going to school, my mother used to take me there and I too used to cry saying I don't want to go. Later I don't remember crying :-D but I guess barring some days I always used to wish aaj chutti ho jae bhagwan? (Please make it a holiday god). I loved my school friends and spending time with them but like most I think I too used to dread getting up so early in the morning for the school.

Life is so funny , just today in the morning I was thinking that I went to Khajaraho and someday someone will ask me about how to go there , how to plan etc etc and just few minutes back a friend called me and asked me exactly the same as they are planning to go there.

After having read the Secret , I am obliged to say that its all "Law of attraction" but somehow I don't think that its got anything to do with that.
