Keep falling in LOVE

"Love has no uttermost, as the Stars have no number and the Sea no rest"

Keep falling in love, but we cannot expect it in return

The steps of my current Life

Weekdays :
Step 1: work
Step 2 : eat
Step 3 : sleep
Step 4 : repeat from step 1

Weekends :
Step 1 : eat
Step 2 : sleep
Step 3: repeat from step 1

Aren't these the two sets of steps that many of us unknowingly follow? Plain, boring and so cliched.

By default

By default, every girl has a boyfriend,
By default, no boy has a girlfriend.

(of course, some exceptions are there)

Although it may seem logically inconsistent, it is a simple observation which is practically evident (look around in your office/college and ponder for a moment) , isn't it ?

Jai Mata Di | Happy Navratri | Happy Hindi New Year in 2009 | Nav Varsh Samvat 2066

Oh! Maa make me more stronger so that i can make my id in this fast moving world.

The festival of Navratri (nav = nine and ratri = nights) lasts for 9 days with three days each devoted to worship of Maa Durga, the Goddess of Valor, Ma Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth and Maa Saraswati, the Goddess of Knowledge. During the nine days of Navratri, feasting and fasting take precedence over all normal daily activities amongst the Hindus. Evenings give rise to the religious dances in order to worhip Goddess Durga Maa.

The Hindu New Year in the traditional lunar Hindu calendars followed in North India – especially in Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Bihar and Chhattisgarh is celebrated on Chaitra Shukala Pratipada (March – April). The New Year is first day after the Amavasi (No moon) in the month of Chaitra. In 2009, the Nav Samvat begins on March 27.

in front of you

Everything I did in my life
Was just to reach here today, in front of you
To see my reflection in your eyes
To inhale the scent of you
To be in your embrace
I ate, slept, breathed thus far.

The journey was my Everest

A candle loses nothing if it is used to light another one.

Can’t do it? Rather difficult, isn’t it?
Don’t worry, nobody remembers that.

Applause dies away!
Trophies gather dust!
Winners are soon forgotten.

Now answer these questions:
1 – Name 3 teachers who contributed to your education.
2 – Name 3 friends who helped you in your hour of need.
3 – Think of a few people who made you feel special.
4 – Name 5 people that you like to spend time with.

More manageable? It’s easier, isn’t it?
The people who mean something to your life are not rated “the best”, don’t have the most money, haven’t won the greatest prizes…
They are the ones who care about you, take care of you, those who, no matter what, stay close by.

Think about it for a moment.
Life is very short!
And you, in which list are you? Don’t know?

People who witnessed this still talk about it.

Because deep down inside us, we all know that the most important thing in life is much more than winning for ourselves.

The most important thing in this life is to help others to win. Even if that means slowing down and changing our own race.

If you send this as email or you can leave me a comment, perhaps i will succeed in changing our heart, perhaps someone else’s heart, as well…

Holi.....Rang Barse Bhige Chunnar Wali Rang Barse....

I enjoyed the festival with my friends and family members. Maybe, things are changing now, but not definitely to the grand celebrations that happen here. Talking about old days, Champak always brought out special issues for Holi and that’s how vicariously we knew Holi. Not that it made a difference to us. Holi and Rakshabandhan were alien concepts to us. Holi is one feel-good festival. Any event that includes water is bound to have fun and Holi has plenty of it. After getting to work, you are very careful about not spoiling your dresses.
"इस दुनिया का संग ना चाहू
ना मै झुमका ना कंग
ना चाहू
जैसे भी हो जितना भी हो
रंग पिया के रंगना चाहू"

International Women's Day 2009 | I Salute the woman who inspires me!

''Woman is the companion of man, gifted with equal mental capacity'' – Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.

It's a man's world... I don't think so
It's International Women's Day today and hence an apt time for me to utter something. We have all heard the saying "it's a man's world". Well, I don't think so and here are some random reasons :

1. The constitution of India gives equal rights to all citizens - male or female, i.e. no special privileges to men.. end of story.
2. We have seats reserved for women in trains/buses etc. Why this inequality ?
3. I have never seen girls chasing a guy around. It's always the guy who has to go to extremes just to convince a damn dame that he is a nice guy. It's women on top here.
4. There is no International Men's Day.. lol...
5. Hmm.. I just ran out of reasons...oops...

Any women reading this post by mistake, don't take any of this seriously and me for some anti-women guy.

Woman is the ultimate reason for the existence of a ''Man''!! Well, the irony says it all, as the word ''Man'' is within the word ''Woman''!!

So what have the men folk of the telly industry to say about the women in their lives? Well, on the eve of Woman''s Day which falls on 8th March, Telly Buzz talks to the men who have achieved considerable status in their lives to know more about the ''Woman'' of today and the importance they give for the women in their life.

It's your day, chillout, enjoy!

कभी किसी को मुक्कमल जहाँ नहीं मिलता

कभी किसी को मुक्कमल जहाँ नहीं मिलता,

कहीं जमीं तो कहीं आसमां नहीं मिलता,

तेरे जहाँ में एसा नहीं की प्यार ना हो,
मगर उमीद हो इसकी वहाँ नहीं मिलता,

जिसे भी देखिए वो अपने आप में गुम हें,
जुबां मिली हें मगर हमजुबां नहीं मिलता,

पंखों पे अपने क्यों तुम्हें विश्वास ही नही

पंखों पे अपने क्यों तुम्हें विश्वास ही नही
आकाश का तुमको जरा अहसास ही नहीं

दीवारों दर से भी कहें किससे हम कहें

सुनने को हाल और कोई पास ही नहीं

इस जिंदगी की राह में हैं हर तरह के पेड़

इसमें बबूल भी हैं अमलतास ही नहीं

अपने गमों के दौर की लम्बी है दास्तान

अपनी खुशी का कुछ मगर इतिहास ही नहीं

तुम हो कि कोई और हो इससे नहीं गरज

अब तो किसी का साथ हमें रास ही नहीं

अपने महीने हैं सभी रमजान की तरह

रोजे हमारे रोज हैं कुछ खास ही नहीं

Swami Vivekananda's Speeches | The World Parliament of Religions, Chicago

WELCOME ADDRESS - Chicago, Sept 11, 1893

Sisters and Brothers of America,

It fills my heart with joy unspeakable to rise in response to the warm and cordial welcome which you have given us. I thank you in the name of the most ancient order of monks in the world; I thank you in the name of the mother of religions, and I thank you in the name of millions and millions of Hindu people of all classes and sects.

My thanks, also, to some of the speakers on this platform who, referring to the delegates from the Orient, have told you that these men from far-off nations may well claim the honor of bearing to different lands the idea of toleration. I am proud to belong to a religion which has taught the world both tolerance and universal acceptance. We believe not only in universal toleration, but we accept all religions as true. I am proud to belong to a nation which has sheltered the persecuted and the refugees of all religions and all nations of the earth. I am proud to tell you that we have gathered in our bosom the purest remnant of the Israelites, who came to Southern India and took refuge with us in the very year in which their holy temple was shattered to pieces by Roman tyranny. I am proud to belong to the religion which has sheltered and is still fostering the remnant of the grand Zoroastrian nation. I will quote to you, brethren, a few lines from a hymn which I remember to have repeated from my earliest boyhood, which is every day repeated by millions of human beings: "As the different streams having their sources in different paths which men take through different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to Thee."

The present convention, which is one of the most august assemblies ever held, is in itself a vindication, a declaration to the world of the wonderful doctrine preached in the Gita: "Whosoever comes to Me, through whatsoever form, I reach him; all men are struggling through paths which in the end lead to me." Sectarianism, bigotry, and its horrible descendant, fanaticism, have long possessed this beautiful earth. They have filled the earth with violence, drenched it often and often with human blood, destroyed civilization and sent whole nations to despair. Had it not been for these horrible demons, human society would be far more advanced than it is now. But their time is come; and I fervently hope that the bell that tolled this morning in honor of this convention may be the death-knell of all fanaticism, of all persecutions with the sword or with the pen, and of all uncharitable feelings between persons wending their way to the same goal.
