A Confused state of mind

Sitting with a cup of coffee in the balcony, watching the sun rays getting hotter with added brightness. Birds chirping around, one of the favorite track coming on radio. A regular Sunday morning, which wasn’t any regular anymore.

Life has taken a leap ahead. Seems she has seen it all, from dawn to dusk. (Hold on! may be it’s just an emotional outburst). Sometimes, when you are connected to someone to such an extent that even a thought of that person moving on, cracks you badly. But, this was a fact now. From college friends to best friends forever, it was a beautiful journey.

They were so closely knitted that even after a rigorous fight they will come back to each other only, either to allege who was culprit or to take the blames. They have been together in their best and worst since college days. And how to describe their chats, it started with a few minutes conversation to a gigantic decade one.

There personal meetings were more of like a corporate meeting. Decided on fortnight or monthly basis, that too after being choosy regarding ambience. Nevertheless, the virtual world kept them connected always. (Thanks to GTalk and Whatsapp).

Their day started with gm texts which was followed with all major activities, reaching office, any happening at work, reaching back home, food, GN. And needless to say, some fights as well (with no reason, obviously).

They both were addicted and accustomed to this routine. Now, after years it was the time for some different flavour in life. One of them got inclined to someone else for future life / soulmate, in a nutshell “Marriage”. Though, they both were very clear that they are only “best friends forever”. Still, such a sudden situation ( which truly wasn’t sudden) become difficult in this friendship. Perhaps, it was the girl’s insecurity that she is losing on her friend. But, fact was that the guy was only moving ahead in his personal life to make a family, without leaving anyone. But, it was hard for the girl to understand. The guy was happy with his decision and claimed to his bff that he is glad on his decision and believes it to be a right decision. No mention, it hurted the girl a lot.

Neither she was ready to marry this guy, nor was happy seeing him marrying some other lady. She was in a confused state and started loving sad songs, old chats, photos and all memories.

Now, here’s the day when the guy is happily married with a beautiful and loving counterpart. And the girl? She was a fool, who failed to make a balancing act. The guy was a gem and promised her to be there for herself, always as her “Best Friend Forever”. Such girls must understand and respect what friendship is and what love is. There exists a thin marginal line between both, which certainly matters a lot.

Relationships are a beautiful thread which crafts the design of life. Always embrace what you have, rather than regretting what you lose.  As someone has rightly quoted “Change is the only thing constant in life”.

“You Live Only Once”. So have a life full of positive thoughts!!!

Cheers!!

Life is all about bla bla bla

Whatever we do, we always get a feedback (be it positive or negative). Since day 1, when we arrive in this world, comments start chasing us. The most excited aunts forecasts our future and looks (She looks like her mom/dad/granny..) when even our eyes and nose are hardly visible :p

In childhood we are taught about science and morals, manners, values. As we start understanding those meanings, our infancy is gone. Then comes the most complicated phase: Teenage. Where we are again advised to focus on studies, building a foundation for bright future. Several examples of our relatives/neighbors are being quoted who have already excelled in their careers setting some benchmark with the magical figures in their report card. At the same time we have somehow managed to create our own world. Imaginations and friends rule our world.

Next is the ‘Survival of the fittest’ phase: Adulthood. You HAVE to have a job, marriage, and other responsibilities. Here you learn all the basics of life. Automatically you learn tolerance and patience (Mostly for working people :p). We cannot argue with our bosses every now and then, like the way we do with our spouses. However, situation is similar at both the fronts. You are not the culprit, still you are accused.

Next is Old age, where we start sharing our long deposit knowledge to rest of society and surrounding. No matter which phase you belong to, it’s all about perceptions and suggestions. Few leads to arguments, few to settlements.

So keep enjoying your life with all the bla bla bla bla bla….

 

Cheers!!

Finally 2016 is here. We have stepped in a new year with new hopes and expectations. Before moving ahead, let’s have a look back on 2015.

Overall it was a wonderful year, adding many new stories in my life. One of the happiest event- my sister’s wedding marked this year as memorable one. Many of my close friends too got married the same year. My college roommates, my MBA batch-mates and other few relatives too belongs to same list. My mom’s second visit to Pune, new job, new colleagues, highs and lows,and many interesting (boring too :p) chapters got added in my life’s diary.

I hope the new year 2016 will bring luck, health and wealth to all of us. Enjoy life 🙂

How to define credibility of doctors

I got infected with some skin problems and thus consulted a dermatologist. At first glance, they were unable to find the reasons for the problem occurence. However I was prescribed few medicines and ointments to use for a week. Further I was asked to re-visit after a week.

I received emails and messages for my appointment from the clinic which made me feel that perhaps its a good place for cure. I visited them again after a week, this time a Senior doctor consulted me and changed all the earlier medicines. Now I had a good stock of medicines to consume each day. But the saddest part was even this Dr couldn’t find the reasons for my skin problems. For every visit they charge me their consultation fee.

Now the thing which is tickling in my mind is: 1) Are they really not able to cure my problem? 2) Are they intentionally elongating the remedy to call the patient every week, as it brings revenue(They charge their consultation fee every week).

Is it justified to pay the consultation fee on every visit? What is the credibility then, that the Dr will heal u soon? since each visit adds revenue they will certainly want more numbers of repetitive visits. How can a common man like us be able to judge that our problem is really time taking or the Dr is elongating it for business purpose.

It’s time to think and come up with some lucid answers.

A thought on Thoughts…

Thoughts are an undefined stuff of life. They never live you alone, while you sleep they accompany as dreams, when you are awake they are always in your mind. Be it in good, bad or any flavour, they never leave you.

It’s really amazing, sometimes they come with memories of decade back incidences, sometimes of last few hours (seems either they are confused or moody :p).I don’t know whether I’m able to convey what i want to,or this makes no sense at all.

But sometimes its good to live in thoughts, atleast it gives you power as a decision maker.They make you realize your faults, at the same time gives a sense of pride for all your good deeds (indeed they are the best critic.)

You are being appreciated among masses because of your thought process, unfortunately you are being criticized too for the same.They exists in different forms : colourful,dark,memorable,disastrous.”Till you are alive you carry them, when you are no more, you reside in others thoughts”.

Now here comes a tsunami of thoughts in my mind, along with a 70mm smile on my face. Seriously, I believe, sometimes you should analyze yourselves through your thoughts, trust me they are your best mentors.

Well, don’t live in thoughts, live in real world but make thoughts live in you always 🙂

Best Wishes!

Efforts in Disguise

when I stepped in the house i realized how late it was. Rounds of meetings whole day, along with chunks of files to prepare and upload, in a nutshell a hellstruck day at office.Daily stretch at work,putting whole hearted effort,try to learn and deliver more is all about my current professonal life.

We had gained a good momentum in market in the very initial phase, and I was happy expecting to receive some appreciations. But to my surprise, someone else stealed the show and flew away with all the credits.

I was miserably amazed. what an unfortunate scenario,I felt like a fool.

But this is corporate politics,what all glitters is gold.

The old proverb holds no truth now.

My honesty paid nothing, The lickers have a smoother path to move and grow. But sorry,I will always choose to be a slow pacer than being a grease full mouth.

I believe in myself and don’t feel any urge to prove my talent.I know it will outshine again and very soon.

I am seeing rather experiencing many new things daily at workplace, different people, different thoughts, conflicts of ideas, blame games,relaxing giggles. Oh! sometimes I laugh hard inside.

well I wrote this because I wanted to imagine a scenario, somehow relevant, not a real but fictional.

Anyways, Yes it brings hell out of me when my best efforts are ignored and credited to others. I don’t do charity work at office. If you can’t appreciate my good things, you hold no right to criticize my bad things(which hardly occurs).

Have a nice weekend!

Cheers!!!!

The most awaited tango spicy State of Affairs everyone comes across atleast once

Suddenly we are expected to be highly social, a good networker, a good communicator, a good cook, a machine which is like manufactured to keep others happy, a recorder who can hold everyone’s orders and execute without delay.

And of course an ATM machine who can generate good revenue for the would be family.
well I am not writing anything in frustration, rather its an illustration of our society’s trends.
The above functionalities are a brief description of what is believed to be inculcated in a To be Bride.
The girl who prefers to sleep till late morning, runs to office in heels, eats anything that suits her mood not a typical diet chart, she laughs loud on calls with friends, loves music anytime, and put whatever she finds herself pretty in; is all of a sudden expected to drap herself in pre defined dresses to impress relatives, is supposed to cook finger licking dishes with numerous varieties in the Menu.
Moreover she should not spend more time on phone calls, should cut down her sleeping hours, sun may be late not You,haven’t you studied “early to rise” :p, and music, omg!! don’t even think to try that.
What an Irony!! I can’t stop laughing.
Why we create so much fuss? why the better half is always expected to clear all the litmus tests.
Why can’t she live without pretending?
Marriage makes you learn adaptations, after all Change is the only thing constant in Life.
Well!! Good things may have bad packaging, lets discuss the later part.
Lots of shopping. After all you are going to steal the show! The center of attraction for every visitor, your dress color to nail paints becomes the point of discussion.
Marriage after all the most engrossing event of once life.
But in our society, the bride is expected to be a full fledged matured person with extraordinary talents and her welcome’s warmth somehow is proportionate to the Revenue she brought along.
But whatever, its a complicated matter, highly engrossing. May take hours to discuss and still will end up without any conclusion.
So I as an Infant should not burn my fingers writing so such a highly inflammable stuff.
Just read it to enjoy and help me if you understand anything out of it :p
Nehaaa….
