Hey all!! First of all wishing u a very very joyous and fabulous year 2013.


Sorry for wishing you late but better late than never πŸ™‚

This new year is much more special for me as year 2012 went leaving a gift for lifetime. Yes, I got married last month and entered in the new year with my life partner. Isn’t it great???


And you know what I am loving it… I love this feeling, I love my new surname and I love how God has chosen him for me. In fact I wonder at God’s ways of bringing complete strangers together.

All in all what I can say is “Mujhe to teri lat lag gayi ;)”


Very rightly said

Rightly said by someone…!!!

I have started realizing now that my mind is as stubborn as me…. in fact more stubborn than me I think…

The more I try to convince myself that this is the way of life and I have to adapt to it as early as possible, have to learn to be happy with how it is now because I don’t have control on the events of life…. I try to convince my mind that it is not possible to have everything it thinks and wishes for… but all goes in vain… in turn my mind keeps convincing me that things will change soon, I will get all what I wish for and I will again be surrounded by happiness and fun. My mind ultimately doesn’t let me compromise and accept what is and make me strive for what it wants me to have….

What do you people think who is right?? me or mind??

What is the right way of life – to make peace with the present however it may not be exactly how you would like it to be but not that bad at the same time or to keep dreaming about how you would like it to be while going about your daily life and suffer restlessness of mind??

Right now my mind is very adamant on its point and I am still trying to win it over with no success at all…. and you know the height is that my mind keeps telling me to believe that thoughts become things… haaaa…. I can only say here that “Man lafanga bada, apne man ki kare….”

Value of some things which we take for granted is realized only when we are about to lose them or in some cases it happens only after we actually lose them.

I am feeling the same these days when I am about to leave behind all the good times, all the fun and cheerful times I have had with my friends here. Suddenly, time taken out to have a coffee together with a close group of friends (be it only 15 minutes) has started to seem like the best thing to do. Lunch in the canteen which used to be a chore has now become something which I look forward to. And many such small things which used to go unnoticed earlier have now become too important to miss.

I feel like gathering as much memories and have as much fun as I can in these last days. It is because I know I am going to a new place, new surroundings and where finding such nice friends would not be an easy thing, given the fact that I am not good at initiating conversation and approaching people.

I must admit here that last two years have been some of the best times I have had during my life in the city. I so wish it to go on the same way as it is but law of nature is something which is not in human control – “It is very rightly said that change is the only constant in the world”. So, it is time for me to move on for my own improvement, for my career growth and for the greater enrichment of my personal and professional knowledge. It’s time to go out and meet new people, to make some more friends and to get some new experiences in life.

Would like to sum it up by quoting that no matter how lovely a city is, it is the people around who make it worth living in it and I have been lucky enough to have such nice people around πŸ™‚

Time to move…

It’s time to move… yes, to move cities. It’s not that easy, especially for someone like me. I have this habit of getting used to my surroundings, my life style and my belongings like they are never gonna change. I know change is always a bit hard to adapt to. But I also know that I have always been good with getting adapted to changes, it’s just the thought of leaving everything behind and starting a new life in a new unknown city makes me a bit jittery.

I still remember how I used to be home sick and kept on wishing to be able to go back to home when I first came here 9 and half years ago. Yes, 9 and half years quite a long time it is… No matter how bad and lonely I felt in starting, it has proved to be a right decision for my personal and professional growth. If my mom had not have shown the determination to send me here for my studies, everything would have been different and I am sure I wouldn’t have anything to be proud of or to count as an achievement. I can’t imagine how different and ordinary my life would have been, had this change had not have happened.

This city has given me so much more than I could have ever wished for. Close friends, good job, many experiences – some good, some bad and some I will never forget. It has made me self dependent, self confident and most of all it has made me see the world with a different perspective. The biggest change which had happened almost 10 years back, has been the best decision for shaping my personality and giving my life a kick start in the right direction and I hope another change / move which is going to happen now would also help bring out my best and would make me even better and stronger person.

I just feel that though any big change makes us feel a bit nervous, dubious and reluctant for the time being, yet in the long time it just proves to be a right turn in the journey of life and justifies itself as a good move by giving us either an opportunity to laugh on thinking how nervous we had been in the starting and how good everything has turned up or a learning to be added in our list of experiences to be cautious next time when we take any big decision.

I am hoping everything to turn out positive while keeping my fingers crossed πŸ™‚

Have you ever noticed that you had been so troubled and disturbed by some problem totally consuming you for a long time and uncertainty looming over making it difficult to see what’s ahead but then you forget all the hardships and bad times you have had as soon as you find solution and can see something good happening. The happiness and that one positive moment feels so huge that it feels like it was a total waste of time and energy to have remained consumed by something which has ultimately resulted into something good.

Really, today I experienced it and understood that there’s no point worrying about things…

Sooner or later everything falls into place.

One of my friends always seeks for perfection in everything. She likes doing things perfectly and expects people to do the same. It was OK with her but recently it has started causing her all the stress and trouble.


The thing is that she didn’t realize since when she started expecting herself to be a perfect person. May be this expectation was always there but wasn’t giving her much of the trouble but it came on surface because the intensity of this need for perfection grew and started causing her some problems recently.

Yes, for quite sometime she was unknowingly trying to change herself based on comments of people around. Like if someone said to her that you should not be so touchy or if someone said why do you talk like that? Or don’t be too sensitive etc etc. She would get disturbed and start thinking of herself negatively. And the next moment she would resolve not to be like that and to improve so that people don’t have complaints from her, her nature and behavior.This in turn made her life more difficult because of her not being able to be her natural self and also not being able to freely express herself, her views and opinions about things.

The problem with her was that she didn’t realize that first of all it is not easy to change one’s basic nature at once because how we are now is the result of all the years of good and bad experiences and incidences of our life through out. Secondly, If she would keep minding each and everyone’s view about her she won’t be herself anymore and will make her own life miserable. Third, she failed to understand that it is not possible to please all and more importantly we are not here in this world to please each & everyone. And last but not the least, everyone has their own flaws and shortcomings, no one is perfect in this world & hence it is useless to think about being the one without any flaws.

Though I myself believe in continuously striving towards perfection and keep trying to be a better person yet according to me what matters more is being the best one can be.

And just think about it “if everyone would be perfect in the world how boring it would get here…” πŸ˜‰

So, here’s my personal aim: “Not to try to be perfect instead to try & find someone who can accept me with all my imperfections…” πŸ™‚

Count your blessings

There are some days when you find it hard to survive… the days when you feel too low and dull… when everything seems to be going wrong… Keep patience… think of the things you are happy for, people who are there for you and count your blessings… I am sure many times it might happen that you will find more reasons to smile than to be sad and cry…. Its just that sometimes we give unnecessary importance to negative feelings and let them control our behavior and responses and forget about good things in our life which makes us look at each new day with new hope and makes our life worthwhile.
