MARCH PEP TALK


We are done with two months already . Why does time fly this fast ?? Sometimes I would feel like me and time are fighting to win a running race, trying so hard to come first . Somehow time always wins , but time has also been so kind to me that no matter what life throws at me it always makes me a better person as the years roll on . I have so much to do ;  we all have so much to do and sometimes we would feel like we are just loosing this game . But I don’t think  that’s true at all . If we could stop for a moment and take time to count our blessings and the lessons we have learned along the way we will actually realize how far we all have come as a person  . We still have 10 months left this year and I believe each one of us can make a difference in our own respective lives if we really put our heart and soul to it . Let growth and positivity be our only intentions . Let our intentions be good , let us keep searching who we are and let us do everything to find our place  in this world . I wish you all a very happy March. The day’s are about to get brighter and so are your lives . I hope you all find a reason to love a life of awesomeness ; just the one that you all deserve . Make art , create , create and create what you can . And I hope , I really , really hope and wish you all find a way to do what you love from the bottom of your heart . And I am gonna wish that upon myself too .

MY “LITTLE Miss.WEIRDO” STORY


The following post might make me appear a little awkward , but I am just gonna write it down anyway .So , here’s the thing – all my life I’ve never had much friends. I just couldn’t fit inside any group, I just couldn’t feel being part of anything or anybody . Well those were the days I didn’t even know who I actually was . I was dwelling in the void and not knowing that I should do something to find myself . No matter where I went I just couldn’t fit in. Everyone seemed perfect ,their lives were perfect , the did everything perfectly , their lives were beautifully planned . Whereas I was just imperfect in every way possible . Starting from school , my studies , my social circle . Ugh!! All these things were an endless nightmare. But I took no step to find what I really want , I didn’t know I was falling apart . Well slowly loneliness got inside me . For some people if the loneliness gets too intense it would actually ruin them . But for me my own intense loneliness made me find who I really am . It wasn’t all easy , but I was able to finally see myself crystal clear . That was the time I got into music and books . Music and books , WOW , they are the sole reason for helping me be the person I am today mentally and spiritually . I started injecting books and music like it was a drug . I love that part of loneliness . It was fabulously disturbing in every splendid way possible. I loved the way my mind expanded , I loved the things things that I could feel , I loved the  things I could see in my own perspective . I loved everything I was becoming . But that “friendship” part was always empty . I just couldn’t get too deep with someone. I meet someone new and I would get easily bored , or I would just come to a conclusion on my own that they wouldn’t like me . Few people who crossed my life said certain things straight from their heart . The reason I can’t stick with a set of friend or at least one friend whom I could call “my soul mate” is because they think I am just too much , like there is lot going inside me . Some people think I am just too intense and scary. Some people think I’m just a ridiculously dumb chick . Some people think I am boring . Some thing I’ve just outgrown everyone my age and that it’s gonna be hard for me to find someone who would appreciate my friendship life long. Some people think I am intellectually powerful and so it might be hard for me to find  friends .  They call me a scholar , a psychopath , a WHAT??? Well who knows college could actually change all this . But even that happened only in my final year :D In college I ended becoming friends , well actually I ended up becoming best friends with a group of people who would actually accept me for who I am , who would appreciate me for who I am , who would become such close and nice friends . College definitely changed so much in me . I just came to  know that there could be people in this world who would love you for who you are even though they wouldn’t agree on most of the things that you are saying and doing. They actually allow you to not feel bad about your imperfections . They agree on little things , they disagree on so many things , but they are always gonna be there, because I have found people who would love me for who I am . In future I might end up with a different set of friends , I might end up in a whole different atmosphere , I might end up with artistic set of friends (hopefully this happens)  but the friends that I grabbed hold of in college will always be the first set of friends I’ve ever had . Well it took me 21 years to find my first set of friends :D

Just thinking about all this I’m actually glad that I didn’t try or do anything to change myself for other people . I didn’t try hard to smile for some lazy lame chick jokes , I didn’t try hard to look like one of those “perfectly manufactured” girls . I just didn’t try or do anything to fit in . Sometimes life figures out things for you , and you just have to stay weird and be yourself and watch how things unfold.

INDIAN WOMEN AND MARRIAGES


I recently read an article in a local newspaper that said “The chances of highly educated Indian women finding a groom will be drastically low by the year 2025 .  ” The article said that in India the rate of men marrying educated women with higher qualification and a stable job will be so low in the next 10+ years.  How ridiculous  is this ?? I was just thinking at that moment those kind of men should not get married at all. Does this mean that women should stop themselves from reaching great heights  and that they should fear that their qualification won’t get them a suitable groom .  I live in South India and I have to say quite shockingly this kind of mentality still exists in the minds of men. And every time I across a man like this they give me clear outline of how weak they are . So weak that they can’t even see their own wife rise up in work and education . Any woman reading this , I kindly ask you not to stop yourself from reaching great heights for any reason . And please don’t stop yourself fearing that you won’t find a guy to get married and that you won’t have kids . All these are options . Hold yourself high and the right person will come to you . I say you are enough. You alone are enough . The happiness you could find in your life through education and work can never be given by a man who is swimming in inferior complexity . In so many families I see here in India a man is the ruler while a woman who is someone who is just there to cook and feed him . And these men make their inferior complexity appear superior . There is nothing superior or sexy about a man who is trying to stop a woman from reaching her true potential . I am not scared about the sustaining mentality of men . I fear what if the women decide to settle for something low just to get married . I just hope not many women fall into this useless trap.

GOD AND UNIVERSE


I was just thinking today morning at the loo , how different our world would have been if the concept of God had not been incorporated into our minds ?? No Bible  , no Bhagavath Gita, no Vedas – How different it would have been. Every morning when I sit down to read my newspaper I end up with a heavy heart ; reading about all the news about one religious group killing another religious group and then followed by killing another religious group. These people fight and kill their fellow humans in the name of God . And where is this God ?? Has anybody seen this God ??? Did God command them to do all this killing ?? Hell , No. Just think about it, if the idea of God had not been injected into our minds this world would have been a far better place.   I come across all this news and I am seriously starting to hate this whole concept of God. (Well ,not really. I am not sure .)  I kind of share this love/hate relationship with God. Sometimes the first thing I would do on a perfect morning is thank God , pray and show some gratitude . And I also go to bed some nights thanking God. I am not sure if God really exists or not , but I do know that there is this one Supreme force that governs us all. And most of the time I feel like that Supreme force is this Universe itself. That Supreme force is us – the humans . The ones who make things happen . The one’s who are strong enough to go out there and fight for this planet and for the mankind.

I do believe in the concept of “what goes around comes back around.” Karma . I believe in Karma  . What you give out to this universe you get back . You give out love , you get back love. You give out hate , you get back hate. I feel like it is actually quite a beautiful thing to believe in this Universe . In the morning Sun , in the stars , in the rain . Every human should worship his own presence in this universe and he should feel grateful for the presence of his fellow human beings . I see a person who could help another person come out of a hard time , and I see that person as God . That person has helped another find happiness and helped another get back his life . Now this is what it truly matters in this Universe . Believing  in God and doing things in the name of God is not a bad thing , until and unless it doesn’t harm another human being . If someone really feels God exists use the name of God to do good, and to create something .I say believe in yourself , believe in another person , and believe in this Universe more . Try to attain abundance of positive energy from the Universe .

Make your world shine as much as you can. Ask help . Go out and make things happen , make everything around you better . Make the people around you feel better . Make every person you come in contact with happy . Find success , create art . And just smile at your own existence and at this universe every morning .  This is the rightful role of a human being .

INTERNET READS


1820dd2c45f28fa358ac3729c12077d8

I literally spent the whole day inside my room reading Ayn Rand’ “Atlas Shrugged .” I am finding it really hard to put it down and move on with my reality. Ayn Rand’s way of writing is like pages and pages of lectures . And through her books I’ve realized that I really do like reading well crafted lectures . Have any of you read this book ???

And oh , I just took some time to read few articles and the I found the following pretty interesting .

  1.  I have this new found interest for Edith Pearlaman’s books after reading a      brilliantly written article on how she balances between  being a fabulist and a  realist . The complete article - New Yorker
  2. Here’s a brainstorming article  about Alan Turing  the man behind the exceptional movie , ” The Imitation Game.” This is a must read .
  3. Looks like London is turning into a nightmare . Quite a shocking article on how  the people living in that grand city are loosing their minds . Click here to read the full article .
  4. Listen to Kelly Clarkson’ new song “Invincible” written by Sia. One powerful song.
  5. The new found Sherlock Holmes was not returned by the Sir Arthur CConan Doyle ?? Click here to read the rest .

I have actually decided to include a ‘word’ at the end of every post in my blog from now on and also give it’s meaning . Honestly this is not my own idea , I did steal it from my fellow bloggers . I came across few bloggers who post new words with their meanings . This is done to improve one’s vocabulary and well , also it helps in improving the readers vocabulary . So I just though I might as well follow it in my blog too. And I will be posting a word under every blog post . I hope my fellow bloggers find that useful in someway or the other .

WORD : Thrasonical   : of, relating to, resembling, or characteristic of Thraso : bragging, boastful, vainglorious. 

“There was never any thing so sudden but the fight of two rams and Caesar’s thrasonical brag of ‘I came, saw, and overcame’….” — William Shakespeare

PAIN – THE BEST STUFF !!


You might find the following three lines quite negative , but just keep reading.

I am just extremely sad right now . I feel lost with no direction at all . Right now I am in the middle of so many uncertainties and impossibilities . I could almost say, “This is it . There is nothing you could possibly do with your life right now.”

These were all the thoughts that entered my mind after some serious failure in my life last evening. It hurt a lot . It left me hopeless. Even now as I’m writing this I am so scared what if nothing works out. What if I have brought my life to a dead end . But there is this one voice yelling in my head “DON’T GIVE UP” and I realised last night that this voice is louder than any fear . My mind and body that stored so many big dreams is just so stubborn that it won’t give up at any cost. And in a day I’ve actually learned to love this pain . I really like the fact that I am in so much pain , but still I refuse to give up. This pain, this failure has not brought me down in any way possible . It had only made me more more passionate to follow my dreams no matter what.

I guess I am forever gonna hold on to this pain, I am always gonna remember how I felt yesterday evening , I am always gonna remember how much this hurts me . And I will not stop till I gain the best out of this damn pain . In a way , pain is the best thing that could ever happen to a man . And I think a wise man will know how to deal with , whereas someone who tries to hide from it will loose his mind .

It still hurts a lot , I am still unsure about so many things in my life , I still don’t know where this failure is gonna take me , but I will not give up till I see the grandest success. If there is anything this pain has given me , it’s just abundance of willpower and more and more dreams and plans .

The best advice I gave  myself today was , “Let this pain be your biggest inspiration .Let your body and mind remember this pain , and when you finally see success , let your soul find a balance between the success and this pain.”

I think the trick here is not to  give up.  Be so strong , get back on your feet and do everything that you can, and refuse to settle down with a failure .

To everyone going through a failure in someway or the other , I just hope this Universe and God gives you all the reasons to keep moving forward.
