Happiness

We’re all so affected by technology that we have forgotten that there existed an era, not too deep in the history, in which no one had mobile phones, laptops, Ipods etc and people were still happy. Today, if you tell someone that life would have been better without a mobile phone, you’d be stared at like a maniac and I too will be staring at you.Source: emilysquotes.comNo matter how easy being connected has become due to these technological upgrades that we wear on us, spending time with someone in person is still far out of the reach of the virtual connections we have made.Being a slave to a life that is driven by technology, I’m on a mission to find the meaning of Real Togetherness.What is real togetherness?For me, it has several meanings like -Eating together with no phones allowed…

Here I am, after 6 days of exploring a different city, making memories, both bitter and sweet. To be truthful, I’ve been there before, but this time around, it was all different because I was on my own. Well yeah, not exactly because that place is swarming over with my relatives, but my journey to and from the airport has been all mine and that holds the plot twist. I travelled to ‘Dil Ki Bajariya Bambai Nagariya’. Here’s how it went:Day 1: – Reached the airport so late that I might as well have missed my flight. But no worries because it’s Jodhpur and we know people everywhere! :D- Shared my seat with a beautiful lady who was flying to Bengaluru. She gave me her window seat and I can’t thank her enough for that. The view of the land from up above in the sky…

This post is dedicated to mothers all over the world:She forgot the deadly pain that she had been suffering from for the last nine months and smiled at you when you arrived in this world. That was the only time she smiled when you cried. At that moment, she made a promise to you that whatever happens she will never let you cry. She stayed up nights to watch you sleep, to comfort you when you slept whole day and decided to be naughty at night. She fed you her milk that had unmatched sweetness. She changed your nappies, smiling when everyone else made faces. Everybody else loved you when you smiled, but she loved you even when you wet your pants in her lap. She quit her job for taking better care of you, to nurture you with health and happiness. She took infinite pictures of you to…

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude. – Denis Waitley What are the little things that give you happiness?This poem is a list of those little things that give me happiness! :)Happiness is not bound to come from the clichés like a flourishing career or a successful married life. It is the little things in our everyday life that motivates us to wake up the next day.Source: Brainyquote.comThe arrival of SpringJokes (sarcasm) of Chandler BingSitting along the river on a wooden logBark of a friendly dogWatching a flower blossomSaying it like Awe-wait for it-someSuccess of team IndiaInteractive social mediaA break from the regular humdrumThe comfort of a messy bunA can of Coca ColaThe cure for EbolaThe generous acts of loveWatching a beautiful white DoveSource: www.socialphy…

He was my best friend…We saw each other every day..I made the first move even though I was scared..He liked me, I liked him and we became friends..Sometimes we waved or shook hands..Sometimes we talked like there was no tomorrow..He wasn’t much of a talker, he listened to what all I had to say..He both were in love with chocolates..We shared the habit of annoying people..Sometimes he refused to eat and I had to persuade him to eat..Sometimes we went for walks..One time he just went away and I was scared to death at the thought of having lost him forever.But he came back, even after two days.. he found his way back..He liked running a lot. it exhausted me but I loved it because of him..He used to my cousins for me..He was…

My #Shopquikr experience! 😊As I popped in the first Pani puri, my phone started ringing. I told my sister it must be mom calling to tell us to be home on time. She inadvertently brought the phone out of the car and told me that it’s some unknown number. At first, I thought it must be some trading company and ignored it but it kept buzzing and hence I took the call. That’s when blogadda told me that I was selected for the #Shopquikr contest this Diwali to make a purchase of 5000 rupees and get them reimbursed with a valid blog post.A lot to choose from! Make a move. Find and buy! :DI was so excited about it that I came home and literally screamed to tell mom all about the contest. She was like, are you sure its not a fake thing? I…

This morning when I woke up at 10:25 something, my head was a little buzzy. You can call it a hangover, not The hangover, but the hangover of an evening of ultimate fun!I checked the time and suddenly I was on my toes.”Kya yaar mummy! Uthaya hi nahi aapne. Pata hai na meri GMCS hoti h!! 10 baje ka time hota h. Kuch dhyaan nahi rakhte ho!” and I was rummaging with my cupboard looking for clothes to wear.”Tune hi to kaha tha ki teri GMCS khatam ho gai h.” My mother replied blankly.Alas! That’s when nostalgia overwhelmed me. It was over. I wasn’t supposed to be getting ready. No 7 hours of lectures and activities. No seven hours of meeting all the awesome people whom I had befriended there.A few of them I already knew. We met at tuitions…

I stand in the middle..Middle of nowhere..Looking in the past..Not just a glare..Time flies fast..Leaving me to fiddle..With pieces of present..And the facets of future..Things to lament..Nightmares and torture..Memories to be cherished..Starting to dwindle..So I decide to be gone..Dying to kindle..Known by none..Before the charm is perished..Words are swords, that fight ruthless..Let the hilt hold them dear..Perspectives change, care joins less..My fondness shall fade, I truly fear..Wrath of the world..Harsh it is always, shall be so..Relinquish and hurled..Mate with odium, ennui it shall be..Retain and reminiscence..That’s what shall be done..If nothing can’t be better..I’ll not kill it to none..Mending the broken letter..You shall see me by the fence…

Dated: 25th December 2013Source: quotesgram.com“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” ― Marcel ProustSometimes I feel that life is too short to wait for a specific time to express our true feelings to people. You never know there maybe or may not be a tomorrow. You never know if you’ll meet up with the people you know, and you care for, ever again. Why let them be oblivious of what you feel for them?We meet two cuddly humans as soon as we are born. These people teach you how to live fully, truly. Those are your parents. There can never be enough words to express our love and our affection for them, but still we should always remember that we are indebted towards them for eternity. They make ends meet to…
