Life...

Life is a matter of moments..those few moments which you want to live again and again....Those few moments which you wish you could freeze in time forever..

Life is a matter of people..Those few people who make your life worth living..those few people whose life you make worth living...

But sometimes,we do not realize those moments and people are just passing by us..
The hassles of daily life makes us forget all those..
In search of happiness we ignore the simple joys life offers us...

And there comes that moment in life when you miss them..
Those moments and people whom you ignored...
Those whom you took for granted..
Those whom you failed to appreciate...
And those gifts of life you failed to recognize.....

And that's when you wish..


if only......

Some random thoughts..

Warning:This is a kind of lengthy and meaningless post.Please do read and get bored at your own risk.Don't blame me,I have warned you before hand..

....................................................................

From the time I could remember, mornings started with a hot cup of tea from my mother.I was very much addicted to tea ,that the absence of that morning dose,used to make me nauseous .And that was the only cup of tea I used to have the whole day..evening tea was a passe for me,I used to prefer snacks than having tea again..

When I joined for engineering,I was accommodated in a hostel.And they say college molds you in and out,for one it changed my tea-addiction in the morning.I preferred vomiting and staying hungry in the morning,rather than having the tea over there,the term "tea" is actually being a misnomer in this case.there used to be milk,sugar(and sometimes no sugar) and tea-powder as namesake,and there used to be water and lots and lots of it..that was the concoction i used to get in my hostel canteen.And if my mind used to crave for any form of tea in the morning and I go down to the mess ,the concoction would have been gotten over by then.And that put an end to my tea- drinking habits in the morning.

After college and into marriage I became a coffee person.I learnt to make the "beaten" type coffee and man,how I loved it...coffee,whether hot,cold or flavored..I loved it...and I even used to have cold coffee during winters and rains..that much became my addiction towards it..

And it was until a month back...

Now back home,I left coffee and now i have started the new trend called green tea..

Sure it doesn't taste anything like tea,but more like an ayurvedic medicine...
Sure,it takes time for you to let the concoction down through your throat..

But they say. it helps in
1.weight loss,.(goood)
2.and takes care of all other health stuff(the cover showed many,but I was only interested in the weight loss point..not that I have much weight to lose but as they say,prevention is better than cure :))..

And now after 25 years of living in this planet and after a series of tea and coffee experimentations I have finally turned a health freak and is now sipping down two cups of green tea in a day...:)

I don't know how long this addiction will last,because until now it is only a week old...

Time will tell...



until then..green tea rules!!!!
...............................................................................

I bought 2 books,and i finished reading one yesterday..it took me one whole week to finish a book..Not that it was that big,it was just 240 pages..but it was boring...

"Anything for you maa'm"..the title made me pick up the book...and now I repent my decision..

the only solace i have is it was a second hand one..

And now gotta embark upon the second book,one by Jhumpa lahriri

Hope it turns out good...




...............................................................................

Guitar was a fantasy for me..and this time I got one..I felt so happy to hold my guitar in my own hands..it was like a long time dream come true..And Ii am now the proud owner of a guitar...

I started taking some online classes as I am tied up with some other job currently, to go for regular classes..but more than striking the right chords,i have been striking the wrong ones..now I have to search for a good teacher who fits into my time and schedule...


...............................................................................

Tendulkar hit a double -ton yesterday..and ,am I happy...when I almost lose interest in the game,sachin does his magic again....



Hail tendulkar!!!!
...............................................................................

It is gona be a month tomorrow since me and my BBH(better bitter half) have been staying apart..And now i miss him so much that i have gone back to the times of us dating and staying away..I am downloading all those mushy mushy..i love you and i miss you songs..which inturn is giving my i-pod a hard time..as it is on most of the times..Don't know what is the point in doing so,bt i guess its all a state of mind..

Wish this phase passes off soon..:(
...............................................................................

That's all scribbling for the time....

until the next scribbling ...

love you all who sat through the read..:)

why??

3 years back..late one night,a phone-call woke up all of us in the house..and left us not sleeping that day and the following few days..the phone-call conveyed the death of a relative,the death which was actually a suicide..a young man with wife and two kids..why he did so, it is a secret between him and god even today...

yesterday,again i came upon a similar story and a similar situation..a man again leaving behind his wife and little kids..

One day you are just a kid,suddenly you realize you are no more one and you are a grown up..You marry,u have a family and life goes on,with its share of happiness and sorrows..and one -day all of a sudden you just leave all your loved ones and go away just like that,to a place where there is a no-return option

Why does a person do so??

What makes a person take the decision,and what gives him the courage to do so,is in-comprehensible to me..maybe they have had problems..but who doesn't have problems..maybe a second thought,may b an open talk might have turned around things the other way..

I guess everything is a thing of"mind over mater"..and "matter over mind"..which overrides the other ,decides where you are heading to..

Sometimes i feel the ways of God are funny..people who have a zest for life and who haven't had lived to their full are called back by him so soon..and then he creates some,who just end everything by their own..ironical..isn't it??

Whatever said and done,death creates a void which can never be filled..and all we can do is share the sorrow of the ailing family..who are left behind with unknown answers and most of them with an unsure future....

And again..why ??why did it happen??....

we are clueless and groping in the dark...

And this is one of those situations when life doesn't give you a second chance..

OLD is definitely GOLD!!!

Old age is said to be a second childhood..where you will be free from all responsibilities and will be taken care of well, as you were during your childhood...Spending your retired life and old age peacefully with your kids and grand kids...that is the perfect dream!!!

For many it remains a dream..I came across an old lady,bedridden and just with a home nurse to look after her,who more than nursing her seems to boss her..her kids ,though they stay nearby have no time for their mother..It might be true in the daily run of life,time is an important constraint....but i don't think taking a few minutes off from a day,to visit their ailing mother is an impossible task..

I have read somewhere this old folktale where the king of a place decided that all old people are definitely useless and shud be abandoned in a far away mountain once they reach a certain age.two sons decide to keep their parents hidden away in the basement as they loved them so much to abandon them.Time went by and great disasters which were about to fall on the country was averted by the timely advice of the old couple,from whom the messages wee passed on to the king by thier sons.When the king finally came to know the truth about the couple,he realized his mistake and banished his law...

That was an example of pearls of wisdom,wisdom which was acquired with age,with experience...Like they say..."old is gold"..

If it was not for the wisdom part also,let your elders be a little less wise and non-contributing to the family needs,how can one justify the act of puting their parents or elders in an old-age home ,and treating them as if they are a burden?

Its like cutting off your roots and your reason for existence and throwing them away...

I can't understand why don't such people understand the emotions and sentiments of their parents..How will it feel,when you are abandoned by people for whom you have loved and lived your entire life for??

And one thing which surely those kind of people do not understand is

"What goes around...surely does come around!!.....

Tough luck for them ,that they do not realise that their turn to be old ,is just around the corner.....

And such people should realize,It is just a good heart and some good thoughts which you need,to make your elder's later years in life the best years of their life....

My current grievances...

The anniversary was planned perfectly..nothing could seem to spoil it..but then,the plans were not meant to be..and in just a matter of 5 days,everything got called off..the anniversary celebrations were not meant to be..A definite thumbs down on your mood quotient.

You trusted somebody as a true friend.And whenever a help was asked promptly it was done by you..But one fine day,you asked for a help..not once but twice or thrice and then you find that the "yes i will definitely do it" from the other side was just a saying which never was put into application..and the lame excuses which followed..that is not something which will make you feel happy and good,is it?

You were sure of getting something,and lo and behold someone who was nowhere in the scene for a loong time walk away with all the accolades which you were sure was meant for you..not good again..

A new dress worn only once,goes missing just like tat from the place it was put for drying..And only your dress goes missing and all the others are safe and sound..certainly not good..

You love somebody and want to be with them.But a twist of fate forbids you from meeting that person for not one,not two ,but three straight months..definitely a nail in the coffin!!!

And there you go,definitely not happy..more frustrated..and surely asking why god why???

I know it has been loong since i blogged.And i seriously did not want to start a new month with this "grievances and hate post "..

But the above mentioned is a bit of which has been happening in my life in the past two weeks.

One day i woke up to a chilly morning and the next thing i know,I am in a hot and sweaty place..

An anniversary which is going to be not much celebrated since I am alone ,A friend who suddenly did not seem much of one,a well awaited "something" not in hand,the sudden disappearance of my new dress,and finally me being away from my husband for three looong months...

I definitely have all the right to sulk all the way..and I am very well doing so!!!!

And i turned out to be the "INCREDIBLE SULK " ..

So loong folks...
until the next normal post...
