In order to truly push someone away from you all you need is a stronger will to ignore a little more. No matter how badly you want to respond, resist this temptation. Gee, your work is done. Congrats, now feel pathetic.

Huma, the bird of fortune !

Ones upon a time, I met a girl named Huma, the bird of fortune. I was a kid then, far away from home, alone. Though I had many friends but she was special, even today (It’s a different thing that we don’t get to talk a lot). Those days I use to miss my home a lot. I could be safely called a homesick. Ready to cry anytime 🙂 .

After meeting this girl, everything changed. Actually I met her, long-long after seeing her. In one word she is Beautiful ❤

It was fun being with her, Talking to her. I realized that I was crying a little less, so actually I missed my home a little less thanks to Huma.

This is the beauty of childhood friendship. The feelings that you get, the joy of carefree life when we don’t think too much in expressing ourselves and our feelings is truly amazing.

We cared about each other secretly, though we never said we did 😉 . I even used to think about her. In fact there were a lot of feelings which I really used to enjoy.

She used to be that skinny girl who was amazing on stage. We were so good together that I don’t remember if I said no to her for anything. Then came the part when we actually grew up.

I kind of miss the old times. I miss those days when we didn’t care too much. The worst part of growing up is that you have to go away. Far from each other, busy with our own lives. Then there is better things too. You grow up, you grow smart, beautiful and what not …

Those beautiful eyes are now much more prominent. Smiles have become killer. Seems like we stay at a distance for good. I’ll get to see her updated profile picture today 🙂  Then comes the best part of being far away from people you love, people you care about. You realize how much you miss them.

Today Huma is senior! She must be looking ten times more beautiful as always, obviously because it’s her birthday today. My best friend was born today, the reason why December is so much more beautiful. Obviously October is no less for obvious reasons :p

Happy Birthday Huma!de1a8c8bf92f927735a9ca48f3c24027

With Love, Rahul.

New Year is coming …

Another year full of unfulfilled dreams, Journey is too long and there’s no point, scream! All alone is the path towards your dreams. So everyone with little dreams, don’t give a damn on every smiling face you come across.

Damon Salvatore, made me realize: 

I’ve been in love. It’s painful, pointless and overrated.

When you write something beautiful, its not just your story

Every time I read a beautiful book that truly inspires me, retains my attention and makes me think of it after I’ve once read it. I keep on thinking, imagining situations, making hypothetical situations and living an unreal yet happy life.

A book has all. It has the strength to change your mood, it can make you think differently and suddenly make you cry from within. And just after a few pages it makes you laugh like you never did before.

In short, a book can make a dream come true. A book can be a tool to make some of your best dreams possible which would otherwise be impossible. So your book, is not just your book. I really wonder, how could a few writer create their own world and make so many character in it. And every other person that reads the book remember the character. May be when two strangers meet, and they happen to have read the same book, suddenly start talking about it. So they are absolutely no strangers.

I have a great desire to write a book once in my life. When I read my own post, i really try hard to imagine does my writing has any of the writer thing?

Why am I so shy to share my story to the world?

Why do I need to be anonymous to share whats the real me?

What am I afraid of ?

So today, I call every writer out there, who come to read this post, Please share your story here. Be bold and remove that anonymous tag, because your story will bring you another life.

 

 

To leave something behind

I was watching this movie, The Accountant. And i came across this song, …to leave something behind.

Truly speaking, I didn’t get the real meaning of it but i felt a hidden love in it.

The photo that you see in the background was taken by me a couple of days back. I didn’t know I am going yo use it like this.

If things are not going as per you no matter how hard you try, maybe its Time to look around and find out why.

The passerby admirer

Those water droplets over the leaf looks so beautiful.
Shining like a diamond.
Unfortunately it is not exactly how it seems.

The leaf has refused the droplets. It’s slipping slowly.

Proud Droplets understood that it’s better to leave silently without anyone noticing. No one wants to get caught crying. So it left trying to keep a smile.
Whereas the water patch, which was lucky enough for acceptance is happy though it was mostly avoided by every passerby, as everyone was busy praising the shining Droplets.
This is how life is. Anyone smiling is not always happy. Introverts are not always alone.
We all have dreams and therefore we all will have problems. And most of the people won’t understand and that’s perfectly alright. So no matter who says what, just say to yourself, “I’m fine” and walk away with a smile.

A Homecoming

Today accidentally this lizard came inside my room. He was quite scared. Struggling to move over slippery surface. I had to move him out of my room with considerable effort.
But after coming back to his home, he was quite relaxed.

Have you ever find yourself in a situation where you desperately want that someone should come and help you. Someone who comes to rescue you when everything is so blur that you are at the verge of giving up? If yes then you must be already knowing whats the importance of helping someone.

So whenever you find someone in difficulty or scared, do help him out. The joy of homecoming is the greatest joy ever.

And most important, you have to look strong even when you are not.

A thousand word story of Anu and Rishi

On a Sunday morning, Amid trees and birds, a little far away from the busy streets, Anu and Rishi were sitting peacefully with an intention to spend some time of togetherness. A little noise from the streets could still be heard. Dry leaves which had fallen from the tree, tiny grass with small yellow buds were sparkling where ever sunlight managed to reach. Chirping of birds, some loud and scary while others so melodious that it would touch your soul and give you goosebumps. The surrounding was just perfect for them, for their endless talks and giggles!

Rishi is an Introvert and usually find difficult to share his feelings when everyone is around. He barely talked to Anu in public. He just sounded too boring when he is surrounded by so many people … So Anu and Rishi, planned this weekend for them.

Anu is wearing a long while churidar kurta and don’t know why, she is wearing a heel sandal despite knowing that they would be going to a place like this ! May be today, Anu want to look very beautiful. And she has succeeded  in her attempt to do so! This was pretty obvious from Rishi’s expression and behavior. He just never misses any single opportunity  to steal a glimpse of her. Every time Anu is lost in some thought, while her eyes is on some little golden and red color Bug, Rishi would know that she is lost in her thoughts… Rishi looked at her so nicely. Actually he tried to set her in his mind.

Anu stands at once! Rishi is a little anxious about what has happened. Anu was trying to remove the grass and dust which has stuck on her beautiful dress. 🙂 This time she kept standing as she didn’t wanted to spoil her new dress. So did Rishi. He also got up. They started moving towards the Jungle. Exploring the beautiful natural surroundings.

Soon they spotted a reflection of sunlight coming from somewhere.. Anu at once shouted, ” Rishii, A a river! Yay, I found a river! Wow, its so beautiful. Lets run over there.”

She was really very excited and transferred a bit of her enthusiasm into Rishi, the usually introvert and boring guy. It happens. Joy, Happiness, Energy … these are highly contagious and so is Love ❤

They started running forgetting everything else for a while. Anu ran, Rishi followed. She looked back at him as she ran. Both of them were laughing. As they ran, looking at each other, laughing freely and forgetting every other thoughts and worries for a while, they developed a different feeling in them, a kind which was never felt before. They ran closer to the river. White swans, which were gathering peacefully suddenly ran away. Birds flew, chirping. The river was big and water near the edges remained mostly still.

Anu picked up a stone and threw at the river. Ripples !

The leaves, flowers which has fell from the tree just above it everything started to dance with the ripples. Both of them were so happy. Especially Rishi. He has never felt this kind of true joy in his life. He laughed only when he thought was needed. But this joy which he was going through was different. Anu was busy, shouting, jumping and dancing in her own tunes; this was her natural behavior but she was equally happy. Rishi has never thought that Anu would be so happy with him. He was feeling kind of blessed and was feeling thankful and ecstasy was making his eyes a little wet.

He just laid down on the grass unfolded his arms and kept looking at this Anu, he has just discovered. When Anu saw him, she came and laid beside him. Both of them looked at one another and carried the laughter as momentum. Slowly, as they were getting calm, they were starting to lose themselves in one another. Rishi grabbed her hands and closed his eyes. She dragged herself a little more so that she could reach her face to their hands and then she kept her cheeks over it and kept looking at him. A language of silence was louder that thousand of words. Feeling comfortable with him, Anu closed her eyes and was slowly gripped in her sleep.

“Rishi, Help ! ” … Listening to this Rishi suddenly woke up and found that Anu was not around. Following the “Help .. Help …” , He ran in that direction and found that a few men were dragging Anu and she was shouting and praying for Rishi to come and Save her. After a while, Rishi located her. He ran to save her from those men. They were in a group. Rishi immediately grabbed one of her hands and started to protest. But the men have brought Anu to a place where no one can be looked for help. Their intention was to loot everything which they had. At once one of the guy, who seemed to be the most arrogant one, grabbed the watch which she was wearing and tried to snatch it. Rishi protested but one of them suddenly banged him with a piece of log over his feet. Anu was shocked. Suddenly she agreed to give away her belongings. They took her chain, her watch which her Dad has gifted her and she loved it more than any other thing. They also took away their wallet and phones and everything costly they had with them and left them alone.

Rishi was feeling helpless. Anu has lost her favorite watch and was in utter shock. She at once grabbed Rishi and started crying on his shoulder. Rishi embraced her and stayed still…

While I was writing this piece of story I was trying to write it in a descriptive manner so that it may sound lively. So I have used a lot of present tense. But I have lost the rhythm intermittently.  But I hope that you must have enjoyed the post.  Thanks for reading!

Difficulty led us to look for alternatives

One day when I was in a hurry I got hurt my feet with a stone. I lost my temper and decided to throw it, at least for that very moment. As I bend to pick it up and throw it, I saw a small mustard plant coming out from the gap between stones. I decided not to disturb it.

But one thought continuously came in my mind. I was wondering that may be a few mustard seeds have fallen in the gap. It got water shower and fortunately day light and some air … Everything that’s needed for a seed to grow into a plant. But the seed has fallen over a rough stony surface. 

This was sounding similar to birth of a child… He may be born in a well to do family or he may be born in a starving family.

But I was shocked at the decision of this seed which decided to continue with its life cycle from the very beginning. I felt the difficulty the soft buds must have faced when it must have pushed itself up through the stones. But the mustard plant never gave up. I looked at it regularly but I couldn’t find any indication of tension , worry, tiredness or even an Idea of retreat despite such burden of constant struggle.

Days passed. Every morning when the sun transcend the sky, it’s tiny leafs would glow naturally. With every passing day of winter, small yellow flower started blooming. Despite such difficulty, the small mustard plant was successful in its effort and will to life his life and accepting every challenges.

Sometimes I feel that this could’ve only been possible because they just do what needs to be done. They don’t think too much and worry.

When you’ve even a little faith in you and you’re willing to go on with it.. then god gives you the strength and faith that’s needed. With every effort which you put in, the thought to retreat vanishes!

Finally when this plant grew to its fullest, I just loved it’s beauty ! As if All the scars vanished and just beauty was left!
