This too shall pass . . .

On my recent adventure trip, I had a slight mishap. I was trying some photography at a 15th century Jain temple and while walking towards the center stage area, I could see a black square stone. My focus was on my phone and suddenly I felt the ground beneath me gone missing. Even before I could comprehend what really happened, I was tumbling down through some stairs not knowing how deep the alleged step-well was in which I lost my way.

NEVER, Ever Give up on Life & Hope !

sayings-about-life

We all have good days, days when we feel like we are flying in spaceships towards the cosmic joy, we have sad days, days that are just empty & days that seem like the worst has doomed upon us. For someone the “worst” might be a breakup with their lover, a quarrel with their family or beloved friend, failing an exam, not getting the job they dreamed of or a failure or setback which diminished all forms of hope and faith in goodness & the Almighty, a death or a loss that is impossible to recover.

Life is like a bell shaped cyclic curve. At a point in time, things get pretty stagnant and dull. Continue reading

Masked Smiles…

5488

You look at my pictures,
Miles away, seeing me smile,
You feel content and delight..

How can you miss to see,
The searching quest in my eyes ?
The mist hid behind the smiling mask ?
The questioning gaze ?
The tiny flames of hope in them ?
And the sparkles of love evergreen ?

Fragility of Moments : Thoughts After a Blogging Vacation

After a very very long blogging vacation, today I decided to shed off my laziness and pen down the thoughts whirling in my mind since all these days, which seemed to me like forever. Something struck me today. It hit me, literally; even though I knew it long since. There are encounters so simple, which stir the emotions deep and make your soul so calm that you see the reflections of your own soul in the tranquility of the waters.

Yesterday evening (well, I should call it night since it was 11:30 pm :p ) I was busy working on my laptop and reading random stuff side by side on Facebook (FB links of some articles are so amazing, I NEED to have some cheat time in between 😀 ). And then suddenly, my phone started crashing. My mobile memory was giving an error saying it was full and I could hardly access my phone memory. Grief and panic struck me. I am a person so dependent on technology that when such disasters happen, I’d begin to sob (sounds silly, I know !). I tried my best to restart my phone at least 5 times and tried to back up some data from my phone memory. I could back up 70% stuff, but the MOST IMPORTANT thing which kept me worried was my contact list. I had a 4-month-old back up, but it didn’t have the updates I had made in the interim duration. I tried over a dozen times but could by no means back up them. It was 12:30 am, my messenger app was working; so I asked my cousin who is a techno geek to call me (since I didn’t have this number !!). But even he couldn’t help me fix the issue. A similar thing had happened some months back, and I knew I had no alternative other than to format my phone memory.

Leaves, Branches and Roots in our Life : Munching Memories

I read a really beautiful story online yesterday and I was so deeply moved, I couldn’t resist sharing it with you all. The essence of the story is :

Life Tree
Life Tree

Life is like a tree. The people in your life are either three things.

Some people are in your life for a short period….

Others there for a few years….

And a few others are there for a lifetime….

They are either a leaf, a branch or a root on your life tree.

Around some time in my life, I was deeply devastated on a personal loss. I wept and begged, but nothing seemed to work. It was like I had fallen deep into a pit, from which I simply couldn’t come out. With every passing day, I fell in deeper and deeper. Then one fine day, old friends came by. They threw me a ladder; and helped me climb, a step at a time. Today, I am so much thankful and indebted to them that my words defy me to express my gratitude.

Life, You are UNFAIR ! :) :)

I just updated this blog post. There were a few setbacks amidst the past few weeks which made me sad and bitter and angry as well. My faith and patience were dwindling. And then I penned the below post. But what happened post that, is the best part.

Some of my friends read it and they did their best to cheer me up. Right from philosophies of life to jokes and the other side of the coin they tried to share with me. Thanks to this motivational boost, I again counted upon the blessings in life and once again thanked God for the friends who stood by me even when I hit the ground.
