Sounds Crazy - But true !!

There was never a moment when he thought so much. He always used to trust his instincts more than anything else.

But now he is always finds himself contemplating. About what?

That, even he doesnt know.

He dreams of making it big. But, What is it? He has seen far too many people, and very different people.

He never believed in it. But, What is it?

He never made any promises ever, but he had let his ownself down once.

That once isnt even past tense, because it just happened in the previous month.

He wants to stand on the top of a mountain. He wants to smoke weed over there. He will do that when he reaches there.

Why does he carry his heart on his sleeve? When will he find his true soul?

Why do we close our eyes when we sleep? When we cry?
When we imagine? When we kiss?
This is because the most beautiful things in the world are unseen.

We are all a little weird and life's a little weird and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.

There are things that we never want to let go of,
people we never want to leave behind,
but keep in mind that letting go isn't the end of the world,

it's the beginning of a new life.

Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt,
those who have searched and those who have tried.
For only they can appreciate the importance of the people who have touched their lives.

A great love? It's when you shed tears and still you care for him,
it's when he ignores you and still you long for him.
It's when he begins to love another and yet you still smile and say I'm happy for you.
If love fails, set yourself free,
let your heart spread its wings and fly again.
Remember you may find love and lose it, but when love dies,
you never have to die with it.

The strongest people are not those who always win but those who stand back up when they fall.

Somehow along the course of life,
you learn about yourself and realize there should never be regrets,
only a lifelong appreciation of the choices you've made.

A true friend understands when you say, I forgot,
waits forever when you say, just a minute,
stays when you say leave me alone,
opens the door even before you knock and says can I come in?

Loving is not how you forget but how you forgive,
not how you listen but how you understand,
not what you see but how you feel,

and not how you let go but how you hold on.

It's more dangerous to weep inwardly rather than outwardly.
Outward tears can be wiped away while secret tears scar forever.

In love, very rarely do we win
but when love is true, even if you lose,
you still win just for having the tingle of loving someone more than you love yourself.

There comes a time when we have to stop loving someone
not because that person has stopped loving us
but because we have found out that they'd be happier if we let go.

It's best to wait for the one you want than settle for one that's available.
Best to wait for the one you love than one who is around.
Best to wait for the right one

because life is too short to waste on just someone.

Sometimes the one you love turns out to be the one who hurts you the most,
and sometimes the friend who takes you into his arms and cries when you cry turns out to be the love you never knew you wanted.

If you really love someone never let go,
don't believe that letting go means that you love best,

instead fight for your love,
that's what true love is.

Laugh to your heart's content; you cannot go through life without it.

No Harm Trying

Yesterday evening after getting back i gave it a thought.

Wanted to do something different. Thought of making a quilt for myself. Was hectic. Maddning.

Three old bed-sheets, some bright coloured block-printed dupattas, a large needle,a cotton reel and a bit of nostalgia.I do not have a clue about quilt-making.Another attempt at stopping this bundle of fading memories from becoming history.

Finally i GAVE UP !!!!

A childhood filled with memories of friends and guests from all religions. Looks like this is the only way authors choose to prove that the child had a secular upbringing. From lessons on Gandhiji and Nehru in school to this book called "Life of Pi".

Frankly, does it prove anything? Maybe Gandhiji and Nehru were indeed secular. I dont know. But there sure must be better ways to prove that. Isn't it a more complicated and subtle feeling?

Also, it is cool to call yourself "secular" without even caring to check with yourself. TOI, HT, DH and mostly all non-vernac newspapers proudly call themselves "secular". Bah! Probably if you define secularism as anti-Hinduism!! I remember during the Godhra carnage and post-Godhra riots, most newspapers convniently forgot all about the GodhraTa incident itself, which initiated the carnage. Do flip back the pages of history to see how horrid the whole incident was. Turning blind towards the suffering of Hindus (or any other community) and trivializing it, is probably the most absurd attempt at secularism.

The word "secularism" is so abused, that secularism is probably dead by now.
