Keeping it simple !

On a special date !

The date is set & venue is finalized. You may call me dressed to kill, but I am just being comfortable. I am elated because I am going on a special lunch date. I had been planning this for so long. I enter the cafe and immediately spot that cozy corner seat. I have ordered my favorite food – pasta & coffee. Sitting comfortably, I now open my book to where I had last left & indulge in the delicacy.

Sounds confusing? Oh, I forgot to add earlier that I was on a date with myself. I know I sound like a crazy person. That’s the reaction I had got from my family & friends. But, to tell you the truth I enjoyed my alone time. It’s fun. I was not alone but in company of a good book & coffee.

I was there for 3 hours and not for a sec got bored. Observed so many people – a bunch of college students bunking classes, people out for office lunch, a young couple talking through their silence & that small kid who was with his mom for treat. Thankfully, the owner did not through me out.

As the day passed, I realized how caught up I had been in this vicious cycle of life.In this busy schedule of coordinating between work & home, we tend to forget ourselves. The monotonous cycle becomes tiring. So, stop it before it takes over you. I loved going on a self-date & will plan soon for another day out.

For all the people reading the blog – Take a break right now. Go out, roam aimlessly, eat or sleep! Do whatever you love to do!

Thank you is just not good enough…

Sitting comfortably in my favorite corner of the home,
I think about all that you have done.

Thankful for all the lessons you gave me,
Be it Maths, Civics or basics of Life.

I might not remember all the failures I had,
But all the times you encouraged me I won’t ever forget.

There were moments when I had led astray,
Oh yes! I was the rebel all along.

Yet you were there to silently support me,
You held my hand & walked with me to the correct way.

Early morning lessons so I can learn cycling & driving,
Late night sessions just to hear my office stories.

Thank you for the all the praises & also the scoldings,
You have let us find our way accross the life’s maze.

As much as I say, but thank you is just not enough Papa,
Wishing you a very Happy Birthday Paa !

U, Me & “Scooty” :)

My fav. blogs from the old times !

We all have that one friend who stays with us through thick and thin. We can go on for days without talking & things still stay the same. This one is for a one such crazy friend of mine !

In your lifetime u gain loads of memories. Memories that u cherish forever. Some ppl become an integral part of your memories. And then on leaving them u have the boxful of memories to remember. Well, I will be leaving my hometown in few days n so at times I do get nostalgic. U live in a city whole your life, suddenly on leaving u remember all the good old days….Hmm…I will miss it all so much…But I m all too eager to begin the new phase of my life.

This blog is dedicated to my best friend n lil sweet sis “Saumya” just to tell u how much u mean to me…Dear I will miss u the most……Dis pic always reminds me of us together 🙂

Being cousins and best friends has given us loads of advantages. From attending school fest to family functions,we have enjoyed it all…Being in the same school was a boon n a bane together…My earliest memory goes back to primary classes when we use to take each other’s copy during exams for preparation n to see what extra has been taught in ur class. But understanding what u write has given me lots of headache always….kamsekam ab to thoda fir acha likhti ho 😀

U r my “8.5th friend”. Kya logic lagaya tha tumne….kabhi puri frnd, kabhi aadhi frnd…bt ab tak to i hope its puri frnd !!! I will miss your humor and the bakwaas we do together…Most of the happy memories we have are of us together on scooty. We go out together n we r bound to be lost. Trying new paths is the best thing we do 🙂

Our first trip on the scooty was such a blunder. Driving on a one-way flyover n thinking tat y is everyone staring at us….logo ke expressions i will never forget…Dono ko raasta nahi pata tha but fir bhi ghumne nikal pade…Remember the time when it was raining and we were returning from ur institute….It was an stormy evening, we were drenched in rains…bt still were trying to find the correct way home…

Going together to school, getting late everyday for assembly n the gossip sessions during the prayers !!!
The lunch time n the choir practices during Quanta were so much fun…n how can i forget being “escorts”….We were for kitchen duty n kitne pastries n sandwiches u stole 😀
but fir uske khaane mein jaada masti aati thi na….
Another time when we were lost was when we were going to buy my books last year….n yaar koi raasta nahi yaad rakh sakte na hum logo…n pure time log khud hi hume raasta bata rahe the…The latest fun on scooty we had was travelling parallel to the railway line…Well, itna to pakka hai ki we can never go with the normal traffic…hamesha kuch gadbad hi hoti hai….Baatein karte rehte hai n we forget to take turns !!!
We have been friends since so long but movie kab dekhi humne saath mein ?? People find it so strange that we have not been to movie together earlier and that we dont hav much pics together…but kya farak padta hai….aise hi humara time paas hota rehta hai….
The long telephone talks and the sms chats….Sitting in the same parlour n still texting it each other…lolz…n the best was when we were returning in the same car and still talking on sms 🙂
But we have had so many best conversations  by just sitting quietly. The strong telepathy we share for thinking of silly excuses is so helpful to save ourselves frm trouble….
The trips to eat “basket chat” n to have cold coffee are innumerable..But each one of those trip is spl in its own way….n yaad hai ek baar parking pe police vaale gaadi lene uthane aa gaye the….fir bhi kya bahana maara tha….n the concert we attended together was also fun…The fun in all the weddings we attend is just awesome…all the dance n dhol is soo much masti !!!
In the last few months we have spent time together so much…Meeting everyday,going out to ganj n the trips to doctor’s clinic…wow…whole bunch of memories…each spl n close to my heart for diff reasons…I know u r getting senti thoda thoda…u r thinking tat wen wil we meet up next….bt dont wry dear…I m nt gng far-off to some alien land…Now u will also join ur job in few months time n den we will come back home in hols n meet n have all the fun again…
We will have the wonderful time on scooty again n will agn sing songs on the top of our voices while driving !!!
Love u loads dear n wish u loads of success 🙂
(P.S- Plz try nt to get too much senti my 8.5th frnd )

Farewell to Thee…

Across life we have come across things we wanted to hold onto forever. Sometimes things stay forever. But what about those things that don’t ? We tend to think more about our loss. And forget to appreciate what we have.

Remember your favourite toy which u never wanted to lose. But as u grew old you stopped playing with it. Time changes and so do the priorities. Think of all those things that were of utmost importance for you once. Do you really need them now ? I am sure most of us will have no as an answer. We all change our priorities with time.

I am not saying that we forget all important things in life. But yes we should have fix priorities in life.

The same applies to people in our life. You want some people to stay in your life forever. Family,best friends,love – you want them to be with you throughout life. Not each one of us has the same best friend all our life. The ones who do are lucky. Keep hold of the people who really matter to you,for whom you matter the most.

In our lifetime,we meet so many people. Some unexpected bonds are formed. But there also few bonds which we want but still they break. No need to cling to the past. They would have stayed if it was possible or worthwhile…

Learn to let go off the them. Only when the old things end,will it make space for new and better ones.

I just wanna say good bye to all such things and people. Each of them has affected my life in some way or the other. But now is the time to move on…Time to face what future holds for me…And I hope that even for a second,but I did make people think about what actually matters…
