Everyone want’s their story to be heard, told and spread across ages however seldom you find ways or means of doing it. Like everybody you try your level best in school, college, office to be the one with a different story but more or less you end up writing “Champak” compared to DC comics.
There was a time when I thought of making my life an adventure, traveling places and marring the love of my life but…
There was a time when I thought of writing computer programs that would solve world problems, work from remote places in the world and write books but…
There was a time when I thought of having a big farmland, planting a whole lot of trees and growing my very own forest but…
I still strive to acheive every single goal mentioned above and wouldn’t stop at anything less and if things go south I would still be a tired man lying exhausted chasing his dreams. Would definitely sleep well!
Meanwhile, the most imminent chapter is about love right now. After being surrounded by hundreds of relatives, friends and everyone else asking me to get married soon I am just short of ideas… Don’t know how this particular chapter will close but as the saying goes.. “when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” Well Universe if you are listening… I desire a smarter girl than myself and of course has to be wildly insane 🙂 Coz normal is boring. Someone who can stand up on her own and speaks for herself. Someone who aint afraid of no one.
After a very long break from writing.. I just started to live my own story! Enough about myself….Have you thought of writing your own story?
To the Girl who actually knows the value of Pie; Mess with her and you would be punched hard and left to die; Full of energy, wisdom and adventure…in life she is high; Even when God plays Uno with her it’s always a tie…..
Happy birthday Anukriti.. You never stop to Amaze people with your presence, knowledge and wit.. Looking forward to an another Road trip!
I don’t remember when I was the last time I was surprised to see anyone or anything which blew my mind. With numerous ways to communicate, plan and organise things..every small things is manageable these-days but some tit-bits make your life interesting and real fun starts when the actual planning fails and destiny plays the game called life!
When you plan….
Something and the whole universe turns up against you.
In life, you can plan a whole lot of things and for a lot of things… sometimes they turn up well and sometimes a disaster but the real kick is in planning to be unique, distinct and out of the world every single day..
So, Surprise your friends, family, do random things, travel random places, try new food ( I did and it was delicious), love everyone and don’t forget to surprise your parents!
Given a long weekend ahead.. Stay Insane, you are the best version of yourself and safe travels.
When the worst possibly tragedy ripped my world apart.. during those times.. every single word which my family and friends said mattered a lot. I am eternally grateful to everyone who called, sent text messages etc during that phase.
It’s been almost 4 months now and with time life is getting back to normal. And I am back into writing blogs and hacking my way into different programming languages.
You look for the purpose and for your heart;
but you have the delusion of knowing your vision and you feel smart;
Deep inside you know you need to restart;
when everything you care falls apart;
The morals you once stood for seems far fetched in the corporate chart;
Family, friends and health usually takes the last spot in your life’s cart;
then it’s time to find the real purpose of your life!
Everyday I wake up knowing that there are a small number of people for whom my efforts / work / presence might bring in a smile on their faces that’s more than enough to keep me running through the day.
Now why all of a sudden I am talking about Purpose in life? Well it’s because some people everyday for years but we hardly know them and then there are some we met for hours / days and they leave an impression for life. Some you watch movie with, drive your bike with, share a meal with, share a trip with .. and with some you share your family with.
Someone you share a meal with…
Here comes my friends Anders and Eng Chew whom I knew for a few days while they were in India but here in Singapore they showed me the real side of this magnificent,lively country. Words would fall short for their hospitality and care. This adorable couple makes me realize that it’s not the bureaucrats but the citizens who are the real ambassadors of their country! Roaming around the streets with them listening to stories, cherishing ice creams and watching the City from top is something I would tell my kids about someday! And yes I need a Singapore flag now!
Someone you share family with……..
I remember calling my brother in law for the first time with some motivation from my friend Kira years ago and after that perhaps this is the longest time I have spend time with him, my Sister and my Niece. I am not a person who likes to talks on Phone or message; I talk when I am in in front. And of course I cannot write about family…it’s simply family (period). But yes my sister made the right choice plus I have someone to look up to now 🙂
Leaving Singapore is difficult… here I have family and an extended family. I haven’t turned on my laptop for work for days and it feels weird but in a good way! Perhaps this is the purpose of life : To be human at-least for sometime. May God bless us all with grace and love we all need every single day!
Through the sands of time I remember the Ujjain trip we went all together;
It reminds me of the game of badminton in the mesmerizing evening weather;
It may have been almost an year but your memories are crisp as a feather;
May god bless you with life filled with happiness, health, prosperity and peace inside yourself..no need to look further ;
Happy Birthday Chris.. Hope you had a great day today..There is one Spanish tradition about birthdays I know. People pull your ears for every single year till now. Hoping to get a chance to pull your ear someday.. 🙂 Best wishes and you are missed!
First time I met was on the dinner table;
From then on it’s nothing but a fable;
You made my submission to the elephant Journal impeccable;
You have pulled my ear more than anyone else in this world and made my birthday memorable;
I would be wrong if I say I miss you…I don’t; but I do know that somewhere in the cold Ireland someone is keeping bananas in refrigerator and finds the mere mention of this adorable!
Manchu ji there are somedays when it gets hard not to miss you….. today is the day! Wish you lived closer and I could see Soraya!
