Strictly ‘Romance’…

Just a collection of the best love lines I came across… All credit goes to Mr. Novoneel Chakravarty, a well known author. Enjoy the read…

1) Love happens once… You get it or you loose it. But be rest assured, you never come out of it…

2) Loving someone truly is dangerous because it makes one bleed from the most private part (the HEART i mean… )

3) You know why I use perfume ? Just to hide my real odor… the one that was created when our senses rubbed for the first time… I don’t want to share it with anybody… Not even you.

4) A man who understands a woman’s core never goes beyond one woman in his life and a man who goes beyond one never deserves a woman’s core.

5) Love is the reason to remain sane all life and yet is an excuse to be insane in all the moments that make up a life.

6) Our story began not when we came into each others’ life. It began from the time when life happened to us. We are not only made for each other but were thought for each other too.

And, now comes my FAVORITE one :-

Hundred times you have told me why you love me but do you know why I love you? I love you because you do to my life what I myself would have done had it been under my control.

I generally am not a hard core romantic… But; just couldn’t not pen these down :) . So, people like me should ideally ignore this post… Hehe


Betiyaan toh sirf Ek Ehsaas hai :)

The best lines you will ever read on ‘Daughters’. The hardest you will struggle to bite back the tears & fight back that constricted feeling in your throat. That. Poetry. By Shailesh Lodha (Taarak Mehta fame).

Kya likhun ?…
Ki woh pariyon ka roop hoti hai…
Ya kadakti thand mein suhaani dhoop hoti hai…

Wo hoti hai udaasi ke har marz ki dawa ki tarah…
Ya os mein sheetal hawa ki tarah…
Woh chidiyon ki chehchahahat hai,
Ya ke nishchal khilkilahat hai…

Woh aangan mein faila ujaala hai..
Ya mere gusse pe laga taala hai…
Woh pahad ki choti pe suraj ki kiran hai…
Ya zindagi sahi jeene ka aacharan hai…

Hai woh takat jo chote se ghar ko mahal bana de…
Hai woh kaafiya jo kisi gazal ko mukkamal kar de…
Kya likhun ??…
Woh akshar jo na ho toh varn maala adhoori hai…
Woh, jo sabse zaada zaroori hai…

Ye nahi kahoonga ki woh har waqt saath saath hoti hai,
Betiyaan toh sirf ek ehsaas hoti hain :)

Uski aankhein, naa mujhse gudiya maangti hai na khilone,

kab aaoge, bass ek chota sa sawaal suno naa…
Apni majboori ko chupate huye deta hoon main jawaab
Taareekh batao, time batao… apni ungliyon pe karne lagti hai woh hisaab
Aur jab main nahi de pata sahi sahi jawaab…
Apne aansuon ko chupane ke liye
Chehre pe rakh leti hai kitaab

Woh mujhse australia mein chuttiyaan, mercedes to drive,
5 star mein dinner ya mehenge Ipods nahi mangti…
Na woh dher se paise piggy bank mein udhelna chahti hai
Woh bas kuch der mere saath khelna chahti hai…

Aur main kehta hoon yehi…
ki beta bahut kaam hai.. nahi karunga toh kaise chalega…
Majboori bhare duniya daari ke jawaab dene lagta hoon…

Aur woh jhuta hi sahi,
Mujhe ehsaas dilati hai..
Ki jaise sab kuch samajh gayi ho..
Lekin aankhein band kar ke roti hai…
Jaise sapne mein khelte hue mere saath soti hai..

Zindagi na jaane kyun itni ulajh jaati hai…
Aur hum samajhte hain, betiyaan sab samajh jaati hain.. :)

And, here is the video as recited my the poet himself !

Food For Soul…

Souls, are like fingerprints… Different for all; Different amongst all. Yet, one thing that binds- is happiness… of any kind.

Food for soul is anything that makes u happy, happier and happiest. And anyone who wishes to be energetic, successful, motivated; needs a well fed soul…

My food for soul-

1) Lessons from Gita

2) My second best hobby :)

3) My writing… My first best hobby. I write when I’m happy, when I,m sad… when I,m alone, when I’m among people, on flights, in trains, buses… whenever an idea flashes through.

4) Nature and it’s beauty and the unparalleled motivation it brings me.

5) The profoundness of genuine motivation - It uplifts the mood like anything; a collection of quotes, sayings, words that simplify and beautify your life; the power of sheer motivation :)

6) A good read that is any day worth the effort. From where I learn, the finer intricacies of life, the nuances and the snippets of life… something that simplifies this journey called life…

7) A few words that bring smile on a face :-

a) Thank you- works wonders when u appreciate people; because they smile. 
 Makes my heart grow fonder :) 

b) You are beautiful- not the face but the soul. A 1000 watt smile; makes my 
 day. Everyone has an iota of beauty that becomes tenfold with an iota of
 appreciation.

c) I am sorry - u never loose if u say sorry to your loved ones even if u 
 weren't the wrong one. Relationships become more profound.

d) It's OK - Ever heard of the phrase, 'to err is human; to forgive divine.'
 u might not become divine, but the feeling is no less when u forgive
 people around; for whatever reasons. Lighter and exonerating.

e) I love you - Not just to that one person, but to all whom you love. Life 
 is too short to hate and even shorter to miss out on love. Tell your 
 loved ones that you love them... with all your heart. A rainbow smile 
 that takes away all clouds of sadness.

Life is all about the simplicities; be it a sand castle or splashing waves… my food for soul. what’s yours? :) … A sand castle on Vagator beach ( Goa ) that signifies beauty and tangibility of life.

Goan Diaries: Prelude :)

Go Goa !!!… Go Goa !!!… Go Goa… !!!

I suppose it’s friends and beaches that have the maximum lure for me :) … Absolutely adorable; beaches are :) . And, this is the pre- Goa experience. M to post a post- Goa update post Goa..haha :P

And, m still to locate my stuff from every nook and corner of my room and m still to pack and m still to do this and that… Disorientation @ it’s peak I swear… I guess that’s me.

And, now comes my list of anticipations… It’s a beautiful amalgamation of Goa calling and life calling (results due this week :( ).. and I anticipate-

- not because Laveen wants me to drink (ass)

- not because Yatish thinks I’ll meditate on the beach (moron)

- not because Shakti thinks I’ll be studying there (as if )

- not because I’m excited about my wardrobe (or rather, suitcase :P )

But because…it’s a phone call that decides my fate…

Goa..ain’t I looking forward to you so much :) :)

Fingers crossed… Here I come …Yo !!!

She is a woman… :)

Women in a few lines-

Wo aasha hai…
Wo abhilaasha…

Wo apnepan ki…paribhasha…

Wo saath chale
Bann ke saaya…

Us sey jeevan…bantaa aaya…

Wo dukh sehti sukh deti hai
Wo aansu bhi pee leti hai…

Har pal ko madhur banane ki…
Jeevan bhar saath nibhane ki…

Ye… ek koshish…

Beautiful song from an old television program. And I believe it aptly sums up every aspect of womanhood. To the men out there- don’t make futile plans for your lady. If it’s not everyday that you make her life beautiful, one day won’t make a difference!!!

A journey in a line- From a small seed to a towering tree, from a mere mass of protoplasm to a thinking, breathing, loving being…life is not easy. It’s a journey of compassion, nurturing and forbearance… a journey only women can undertake.

Of learning and unlearning; of loving and loosing; of giving and only giving; of simply loving… of living!!!

A journey only women can undertake :)

She is your words and your eyes, your ears and your senses…your refuge from everything…your solution to life- she is a Mother!!!

 

 

 

 


She is your roof, your shade…your soul mate. She is the one who knows you more than you- she is a Lover!!!

 

 

 


She is a bundle of joy…with her minute arms and huge eyes; a gift to cuddle and snuggle into- she is a Daughter!!

 

 


She is the foundation of the beauty you call home; she takes care of your home, your children so that you can go out there and be yourself; she is your confidante- she is your Wife!!!

 

 

 

She spreads smiles and makes your life easy
In taking care of you she feels happy…
In praying for you, she feels blessed…
a selfless soula benevolent gift :)

It’s just another day- a beautiful day for us… :)

HAPPY WOMEN’S DAY…to all the beautiful women out there.

Part time shayar : The other side of me :)

After ages I have tried my hand at shayri… A dedication to all those who share their first love with me. Before you draw too many conclusions, I am talking about “Writing”. :)

My catharsis is my writing, my blog, my idiotic poems and stupid quotes. Some are hilarious, some are hopelessly romantic, some are crap… but they always make a bunch of smiles when I go through my repertoire. Just to recollect the emotions that I went through, maybe some ages ago… It’s like traveling back on a time machine. Zoop!! you go straight to places you wouldn’t have liked to venture into otherwise… or memories that you would have loved to visit.

Your words and eyes are the mirror of your soul. Hence, these lines  :-

” Ye jo alfaaz hain aapke…

Inse ek kashish bayaan hoti hai…

Mohabbat cheez hi aisi hai…

Lafzon ko rooh ka aaina banaa deti hai…”

 

Poo says these lines are good. I have decided to go by her words :)

The little things you do for me…

Though I am an airtel user and I have no intentions of giving in to the MNP scheme, I just love Vodafone’s TV commercial:

The little things you do for me…

And nobody else makes me feel good…

Little things you do for me…

Making me smile n no one else could…!

That’s why i like to sit next to you….,

and Hear your mad stories, i know they’re not true..

and i like that we share a secret or two ……Together….!

Little things you do for me…”

 

 

So simple and so beautiful. It is so peaceful and serene, a feeling, to have made someone smile with a small gesture of yours.

Spreading smiles and making someone happy is the most selfish thing one can do…be selfish and spread happiness around. It comes back to you in the disguise of your own smile…in the economics of life, it is called TRICKLE DOWN HAPPINESS :)

“In seeking happiness for others, you find it for yourself.”

Between love and life…

Till a few days ago, I just admired these lines by Tennyson,

“I hold it true, whatever befalls, I feel it when I sorrow most…

It is better to have loved and lost, then never to have loved at all.”

I know some of my friends reading this would want to check if I am running a temperature or not. Trust me, I am as fit as a fiddle. It’s just that, some things have made me realise the better side of these wonderfully youthful, beautiful and ‘life-ful’ lines.

Having always believed in the philosophy; “Always rise in love, never fall…” I refuse to accept that an emotion as serene as love (be it any kind of love- dreams, parents, friends, passions…lastly a boyfriend/ girlfriend…yes they are last on my list) can hold us down. At the end of the day, it is what we choose for ourselves. Loosing is never anything new. We loose all the time…

“Ek saans kho kar hi ek nayi saans milti hai naa…

us saans ke kho jaane mein hi bhalayi hai…

wo saans jaate jaate ek pal zindagi de jaati hai…”

It’s just what we make of that loss. Do we take a lesson? Or do we loose ourselves to the labyrinth of the timeless time?¬† And even when we manage ourselves out of that maze, do we make a sincere effort at not going back to those tangles…however enticing or promising they might sound? After all; everything that looks sentimental and cute is not love. Life teaches us something each moment. But only when we choose it above everything else. Don’t find life in love…find love in life. It could be anything; a dream, an idea, an ambition, a passion…

Love happens only when you are moving ahead…if you are going back, it’s a trap you have created for yourself. There can never be a choice between love and life…it is always life that encompasses everything. Choose life above everything else…love will happen somewhere on the way… :)

Brush strokes :)

Life is a canvas and we paint our own beautiful painting, we carve our own sculptures. Somewhere down the line, we all are artists of our own fate.

Read a line somewhere: today it may seem a vain line…but 10 years from now, u will eventually realise, that life is EXACTLY the way u want it to be, EXACTLY the way u see it…if u laugh, life is happy…if u cry, life is sad.

Back at home, when I go through my old days, my old things…it’s pure nostalgia and happiness…an amalgamation of ‘good good feeling’ and joy from the absence of regrets over anything…I feel glad for the things I did or the things I didn’t do…coz somewhere down the line I was correct for I have a beautiful life today, with beautiful people in it…

The moonlit sky studded with stars inspires me to go for it…the beauty is impeccable. It inspires me to paint…and I am doing the ‘magic painting’ that I used to do as a kid…wo aati hain naa special painting books…u only need to put water…wahi waali :P . And I am reminded of my childhood. But, now that I look around for an improvised perspective…a beautiful picture comes up “Life has all colors in it…u just need to put the right amount of water to get the desired effect…but careful!!!…too little and it becomes parched; too much and becomes smudged.”

I want to paint…I used to be a good enough painter. Don’t know where it disappeared. The confident brush strokes of my life…they are hiding somewhere in the busier picture. Will have to find them. I want to hold back to certain things that appealed me always…as a child, as a teenager…and I find Wordsworth’s lines so apt now that I think about it…should not we cherish the things that bring us joy forever. Never let go something that brings a smile on your face…. In Wordsworth’s worthy words:

My heart leaps up when I behold

A rainbow in the sky:

So was it when my life began

So is it now I am a man;

So be it when i shall grow old,

Or let me die!!!
