It has been three weeks since I last posted. It felt very annoying for not having been able to post anything…felt like I was missing something and it also felt like one of those things that we start and leave halfway. Thankfully, that is not the case, just got busy with work and a week long vacation.
Let me take this opportunity to thank all of you who have had the patience to go through my blog and for having appreciated it. It feels great. Maybe someday I will write a book ;) Coming to think of it, I have always wanted to author a book. The idea came up when I wrote my first poem-The Bee…it was the silliest thing I have ever written(wrote when I was a 9yr old) but I seriously thought the moment I wrote the poem that I had the potential to become a writer though after I grew older I realized it required me to do much more than write a silly poem about bees!!! Well, let me prove to you how silly and senseless my first poem was. So here goes the poem...I wonder how I remember each word so clearly.

The Bee…

Buzz! Buzz! came the bee,
As if it saw there was some ghee.
It called its friends and said see-see,
There is some ghee.

Among them, there was one she-bee,
She said I’ll see-see,
If it is little poisoned, we’ll get TB,
Hearing to this, all the bees laughed hee-hee.

PS: Sorry Shru…I know you hate it!!!

Now this reminds me of my childhood days. I guess it is the same with all of you that during childhood the answer to “What do you want to become when you grow up” kept changing every other year. I wanted to become a writer (I still want to pursue that and am currently living it through my blog) and the idea originated after writing, ahem, The Bee. Then I wanted to become a Scientist. I have been one, atleast held that designation, even though for a short while. I also wanted to become a chef sometime when I was in my teens. Ah…my mum gives me that opportunity every time she is out of town. So I think I have pretty much been everything I wanted to be. Whoever said that you can’t do all that you want to do in one life!!!

I have absolutely nothing to post this week. I have so many things on my mind that it is difficult to put it all in words. I guess am becoming too philosophical nowadays. Looks like am suffering from an overdose of “being positive” syndrome.

Today, I finished reading an awesome book called “The Greatness Guide”. A big fan of Robin Sharma now. All thanks to junior Robin ;) It is not that he talks about anything out of the world but his writing style is so simple that you can connect with him very well. That is the reason all great writers are not those who have an exemplary hold on the language but are the ones who write in a manner in which we can see our life’s reflections in their works.

I think I have spent my past week introspecting a little too much. My brain is currently cluttered with so many thoughts that I can feel them resonating in my brain at unimaginable wavelengths. Few thoughts that are going on in my mind currently are:

The way we celebrate festivals has changed so much. The spirit of the festivity is there but it is not the same as before. There is that lull feeling that was never there during childhood. Festivities now mean not more than a mere holiday. Maybe it is just a phase…it will all change someday.

The need to contribute to a social cause. We all do contribute in some way or the other, knowingly or unknowingly, but I still need to work on this and contribute a little more. Everyday I pass by the low income areas and see the struggles the people face there, I feel blessed to be where I am. Truly, am not saying this because it needs to be said but it is because I observe them everyday of my life and sometimes it does send a chill down my spine. It really does.

The importance of building and nurturing relationships. Be it at the home front or be it in professional life. By relationships, I don’t mean that we make brothers, sisters or friends of every person we know, but, it is important to build that connection to succeed in all areas of life. Relationships do provide the net that rescues us when we fall, makes the fall less painful.

People come and go in life ,but, life still continues without a comma or a fullstop. I still wonder why people come into our lives if they were never meant to stay for a lifetime. People who meant so much once upon a time mean nothing all of a sudden, doesn’t happen, does it? They always have a special place which always make the most cherished memories in life because these are the instances that teach you that life continues even without the few close people you always liked spending time with, it teaches you things about yourself you never knew, it teaches you to be strong after having been brittle. Love you all.

The need to say what’s on your mind. I strongly believe in this. Always say what is on your mind. Positive or negative stuff. It might ruin the moment but might help not ruin your life. If the person knows you enough to not misunderstand you, then something positive will definitely fruit out from it. It is always better to regret having said it than having to regret not having said it. It is not feasible to read everyone’s mind every time. What if the other person has the same thing in mind and is scared to say it just as you are. No one says anything and it ends there. Not good. No questions. No answers. Just plain thoughts as to what could have happened if one of them had the courage to say it and sort it out.

To achieve great success in life, you need to be a shoe-kisser,corrupt and insincere. I am not the one to use cuss words but my apologies, this is the ultimate bull****. I believe you can still achieve success by standing your own ground, following your own principles without even fearing if success will follow you. Doing your work sincerely everyday of your life is more than enough to achieve success. If not now, success will kiss your feet some other time, but it surely will.

The best thing that I have learnt today. Give in your best and then let go. I have realized that previously I have always thought about the results I’d get from the work I chose to do, enjoyed it, but, not as much as now. Results are important, rather, very important ,but, if you enjoy the process, results always turn out to be great. That is what passion is all about…enjoying what you do.

Never lie to yourself. No one knows us better than ourselves. Feeling sad, cry. Feeling happy, laugh. Don’t control your emotions. It is not meant to be controlled. One night of break down for a small “large” problem (well… I mean the ones that can be handled but not at that moment) can help you get up fresh the next day. Just tell yourself that it will just be a night of break down without affecting your everyday chore the next day. Helps. Really it does. Tried and tested personally.

Best Blogger Tips

First of all, there was no need for me to use XX and XYs; I could have instead used the terms men and women directly, but, from my previous posts, you must have known by now that I have a liking for everything that accentuates my “nautanki” image. Believe me, I look innocent but I am a very melodramatic person and like all Leos am proud of it and that is how I guess I keep myself entertained, for, I have no siblings to give me a dose of entertainment everyday. But I think this is all restricted to how I am with my friends and close ones and this image doesn’t carry over to my professional life or does it?? a question arises in my mind if I am a victim of split personality disorder!!!Anyway forget me and my not so thoughtful thinking.

Coming back to the topic, the universal problem to which no scientist till now has found an answer- Why is it so difficult for men and women to think on the same lines??I guess even the question of if egg came first or the hen would get resolved but this question would never find an answer…atleast not a reasonable one. I can vouch for this.

I am not taking anyone’s side. I know we aren’t structured to think alike in most of the matters. Only in a few matters do we think alike. But most of the times, it is always a different opinion. We might come to the same conclusion but reasons might never be the same. We girls always flag the issues about emotions and guys always flag the issues of practicality. If we think from our right side of the brains most of the time, they use their left side of their brains. Complementary right? ;)
I am not here to talk about who is better or something. I was just thinking of it today as to how great a thinker our creator must be. He planned it out so well that there’s always something that complements each creation of his. There are always two halves, mirror images, each complementing the other, each distinct from the other, each an independent entity by itself, but, when these two halves complement each other, then the so called ‘stability’ dawns. Without one, the other wouldn’t get the importance it gets now. Good wouldn’t be so important if there was no bad, water  wouldn’t be so important if there was no fire, positive wouldn’t be so important if there was no negative and happiness wouldn’t be so dear if there was no sadness. Same is the case with men and women. Without men, women wouldn’t be so important and without women, men wouldn’t be so important. Life would be so boring and dull and the sad part, there would be no “love stories”. Great thinking God…kudos to you. But one request God, can you please make men a little more emotional, little more understanding and most importantly a little more shopaholic?? Well…I am not asking for more, am I? ;)
