When there is no space for you!

Create one. As simple as that.

Let me juxtapose two incredible truths of life. One is, there are these people who don't want to see you go up on the stairs; and, there are those flock of birds who are eager to see you fly high.

People of the first category can easily be spotted at the crucial bumpy road of life. When you stumble, there will come very few hands to help you stand again and to continue the journey. And such few people are a bliss. But not many are lucky enough to get such ones.

But when people enjoy your misery; when they find serenity in your grief; when their lips shrink when you smile, it certainly makes your journey harder to travel. Life is already harsh on you and when such people come with 'Handle with care' tag, they awfully make your 'Go getter' attitude more complex. They won't let you do anything in your life. In fact, they would love to ruin whatever you have cooked for your future.

But if you flip the coin and see the picture from a d…

I miss you sister!

Today morning when I opened up my eyes, I was bit disappointed at the sight. Next to me was lying my son, soundly sleeping. Not that his presence hurt my eyes but I tenderly missed the last few days' rare sight. And this morning when the sight was changed, it hurt.

My sister had come to visit us for few days. I and her used to sleep together at nights, bound by sisterly bond of course. Every morning after opening my eyes, just a look at her was delicately filling me with the joy of the upcoming happy day. We share a very beautiful bond with every possible impression of sisters-go-happy-together. We both are a nuisance when it comes to talking. We can talk endlessly to each other. We tease, we travel, we share, we work, we laugh, we cry, we get angry, we shop and we do everything that comes with the sister bonding with a high ease.

She came to attend our kid's birthday party and to celebrate Holi together. We enjoyed a lot. We played with lots of colors and loaded our cameras …

Last words of the day :)

It's 10:40 P.M. This is the time that I have gotten free of my whole day of work load. Not that I am an employee somewhere but sometimes being a housewife also demands for fulfilling so many of responsibilities. Isn't it? :)

Whenever I get tired or feel joyous or sad or something different apart from normalcy, I start to crave for writing a post; my fingers long to settle on the keypad and type languorously to embellish my blog with my heart contents. I don't know why but my blog lures me out in such a manner that I can't deny it and if I can manage to scribble something here under such circumstances, I feel ecstatic; out of the world. This time is exactly the same time. I am done with a long process of two delicacies making and have tidied up my other works, though I feel tired yet I am writing. It satisfies me as I let my heart speak only. No interruption of brain, not worlds' and not any other unwanted ping of life. Just me and my blog. That is why the label I …

How much I wish!

Sometimes I so wish to get a clone of myself or if not this then get more hands just than two. These days when I am entitled to do a whole lot of multitasking, I feel like going frenzy with all of it.

Getting up early in the morning to prepare breakfast and lunch, getting ready and munching breakfast simultaneously so that I can make it to my fitness classes, going there and doing all the jumping, pumping, dancing moves around for full fledged one hour and then after relaxing a bit, rushing again back to home. This is just my every morning routine that I do without missing a beat.

Now a days, further routine has got so much entailed that I bite my nails while thinking of it. Getting a call from a company two days back as they need a content writer for a short term project and meeting them for two consecutive days, undergoing the elaborated process of understanding their structure and technical strategies, gathering all the essential details and all this while keeping my share of barg…

Be a little selfish towards your children

Shaking your head dismissively at the title? But I won't stop myself for what I have to say. Not because I don't care but because I want you to understand ONE very important thing if you are a parent.

Yes! As a parent, we all should be little selfish towards our children. But take this *Selfish* word in a positive way because being selfish is always taken with negative connotations. Sometimes parents get so much involved in taking care of other arenas of life that they had to ignore or get failed to understand the needs of their own children. While such thing can be understood at some level, it is sometimes not acceptable even if the children are old enough to assess the reason/s behind it. 
Getting scold or being hit because of someone else's mistake creates a gap between the children and parents and if the situation is not taken care of carefully on time, this gap gets wider as the time passes by. Contrary to the fact that big children can take care of themselves, they …

A state of *Nothing*

What is light? The absence of dark; And what is dark? The absence of light, of course.

What is air (gases)? The absence of vacuum; And what is vacuum? Nothing but the absence of air.

Have you ever lost yourself in vacuum (especially then when you are not an astronaut)? Have you ever achieved a state where nothing reverberates in your whole but the void only? It is a strange state under the effect of which you neither feel happy nor sad; neither anger nor peace; neither love nor hatred. Nothing but a dense reveling quietness in every vein, every pore of the body. Feels like you are walking filled with flesh and blood but still, there is nothing. You feel absolutely nothing and the fount of such state does not necessarily be any bad or negative incident or thought or whatever. It just happens.

What is void? As I have stated above, the absence of air (gases). We can define it via one more way. The void is filled with *Nothing*. *Nothing* is flowing everywhere in void, fulfilling its eve…

TV Off Life On

Now that summer vacations are about to start in a whiz, I have already started thinking of getting my kid join any summer camp. But these camps will only be able to let me relax for few hours. But when they are finished and my kid is at home, it becomes a mountainous task to strip him off from television.

I have given a thought on this. Though my society is not privileged to have a club or party hall kind of thing where I could organize some games for my kid and his friends, I will ask for his interests on what would he like to do in summers.

Asking my kid's interests and then proceeding for any club, class or workshop will make my task far more easier. On the basis of previous summer vacations, I know he loves doing Art & Craft things and Drawing. He also loves playing roles in Drama. So I guess this is where I can take the lead from and send him to such class where he could avail these and other new wonderful activities.

However, these classes will not last for more than few…

Facts from Shiva Triology

While I have set The Vampire Diaries' next episode on download, thought why not to give away some interesting facts from the book series Shiva Trilogy in the ocean of which I have been diving so deeply since a while.

Don't worry. None of them are spoilers here. These are the facts behind those notions that we (The Indians) have been munching on since our childhood but never came to know about any of Hows and Whys correlated to them. So get ready to shoot your general knowledge at new level with some interesting facts.

Notion # 1 In India, Kashi (Currently Varanasi) is known to be one of the holiest places in India. People usually prefer to spend the last days of their lives here only because they believe that dying in Kashi will make them excused of all of their sins and they will attain salvation.

Fact :: When Lord Rudra executed eighty asuras at one ghat in just one day happened to be in Kashi, it fondly turned into Assi ghat. It was one of the biggest violence of that time. …

Deceptive affection to maintain relationships

Once again, a new study has indeed blown away one widely accepted quote that *Honesty is the best policy* while supporting another one concretely *All is fair in Love and War*.

In Washington, researchers have found that couples lie to each other with the average of thrice in a week. The motive behind is simple and loving. They do it to maintain a healthy relationship. And doing so, they fall for Deceptive affection. Such behaviorism or lies that are harmless and do not intend to hurt the person is called Deceptive affection.

If your partner asks about her new hairdo and you give a standing ovation despite of your sulking feeling inside, you are throwing a deceptive affection. Your partner has bought a new dress as your birthday present and you don't feel like "Go get it" but still you kiss him for his wise pick, this is again, deceptive affection.

In my point of view, it is good in someway because we always want appraisal and good words for ourselves. If you can make yo…

Tips to identify and achieve your goal

Here I am again! :)

Yesterday was my birthday and I was deluged with SMSs, phone calls and messages on the Facebook wall. It is always wonderful to have an occasion like *Birthday* which makes me feel literally like a Queen of the Day. With a Thank you note for those who wished me, I'd also like to thank that person who created or invented or celebrated the day of the birth. Because of that wonderful person, we all celebrate our birthdays.

If you still wanna wish me, guess what? IT'S NEVER TOO LATE! Today is my official birthday. So go on...wish me again. I'd still be pleased with equal resonance :)

Now sit straight and let's talk for what I am here. For writing a post of course. I have come across many people who haven't identified or achieved their goals yet. I was also one of'em once and that is why I know how difficult it is to first identify and then achieve the…

Break your cocoon

Yesterday was International Women's Day. I scribbled one post on it with an ode to women (in the form of poetry). This morning is still carrying the memory ingots of some of yesterday's happenings. While I mentioned about the webinar that I attended and that was organized by Accenture, something else also happened yester-evening.

I called one of my neighbor hood friend to have some snacks and chit chat. Our sons play with each other regularly. Therefore, it is quite natural for the friendship to grow over just the familiarity. Anyways, she came and we started chatting. Being a talkative person, I was throwing humor balls to which she was laughing a lot. We both were talking to some usual stuffs. At one point, I told her something personal about my life. This opened a conduit between us. She also shared some of her issues with me and then like there was no red signal to stop ourselves anymore, we continued sharing and munching on our personal issues for the rest of the evening…

Happy International Women's Day

Winning hearts, Omitting fear, Marveling at own clarity, Emitting the radiance, Narrowing it's fragility; Here comes International Women's Day, Let's wish them at least a century of - Happiness, joy and prosperity.
Let's cherish being Women, Let's flourish the womanhood; Let's enjoy the breeze today, And let go the tears away.
It is OUR day like the other days, It is OUR life no matter what the others' says; No rules for freedom, No logic for wisdom; We live, we enjoy and we heal, We share, we walk and we laugh; As We are the WOMEN, And this whole universe is OUR den.
With my this creation, I commence my post now. Here is another poem written by me few days back, coincidentally on woman itself :: A journey of a woman. Read it. I am sure you will like it. If yes, mark your words down the post :)

Happy Women's Day to all my readers no matter which sex you belong to. If you are a female, this day is completely dedicated to you and if you are a male, you are bl…

15 great thoughts by Chanakya

I came across a very intriguing set of 15 statements said by legendary Chanakya.

He is also the author of Arthashastra.

5)" Before you start some work, always ask yourself three questions - Why am I doing it, What the results might be and Will I be successful. Only when you think deeply and find s…

The Amazing Spiderman

Was getting bored and didn't have anything interesting to do. So I resorted to watch a movie and then I got stuck with The Amazing Spider man. Here is my point of view whether I would recommend others or not. You may get some spoilers here. So if you intend to watch this movie, take your eyes towards the other post that can fancy you equally :)

So the leading star cast is Andrew Garfield as Spider man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curtis Conners.

Prior watching the movie, I, with obvious reasons, had pre notions from the previous four Spider man movies that revolved around Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and James Franco. Since I am a fan of previous Spider man series, I anticipated that The Amazing Spider man would also stand at the same height, sharing the same level of curiosity, excitement and reveling plot. But alas! It didn't happen. So here are the pros and cons of the movie.

A thought on Dreams

Dreams are not those that can be defined after you shut your eyes for sleep.

Instead, dreams are those wind chimes that you go on staring, whose melodious tuning keeps you hypnotized and does not let you sleep in obvious hours.
