THE GET AWAY 

Finally a weekend away from the daily circus.

Do not know what occurred, we 5 geared up & left for the Diveagar Beach.

Everyone was frustrated & tired of people with unethical conduct. We want to live for a while. We have been planning this trip from the past few weeks. Finally, we executed it.

After 5 hours of driving, we reached there.

The beach was not exactly jammed, but a good amount of strength.

One can see varieties of age.

I guess I know what were they thinking.

Toddlers, enjoying the sea as if there is no tomorrow.

Teenagers, excited towards their future & envying the adults.

Mid 20’s, feed up with the drama, was hoping to become a child once again.

The Grey hairs are thinking about their happy moments while they stood there gazing the sea in silence.

And then there is me, doing what I do daily in my life, confronting the waves as I don’t trust much in the concept of going with the flow. I was going for the ‘high tides’ thinking that they can’t shake me, & yes they can’t.

Then comes a quite one & I was under the impression that even the high waves were ineffective on me, this too shall pass. But no, it thumped strategically & next thing I know that I was washed towards the shore, all drenched.

When I saw the sea, it was like the waves are making fun of me.
Now the choice is mine, whether to stay on the shore, safe & watch them laugh at me or go back armed & challenge them once again.

Thanks for the trip guys.

COFFEE WITH A CURLY-HAIRED Girl (II)

It’s not all coffee, it’s kind of coffee in the theater.

Now the most important part is Don’t EXPECT.

I do have a lot of expectations with people. I think that if I can, then for sure anyone else can too.

“Do you owe them, or do they owe you?”

“No.” I replied.

”Expecting is like hurting yourself knowingly.”

I guess that makes sense. 

All you crave is happiness. Own happiness. That’s the sole reason why one should not expect.

Don’t try to be a hero. You are not liable for everybody’s smile. Light the candle without burning yourself. 

Leave the past in the past. Welcome the future with a smile. 
She told me a poem after the movie. 

Speaking my mind out

By-Vikram Syal

I had to write,

To speak my mind out.

Inside a soothing face,

There was a screaming shout.

The noise was made by dying thoughts,

Now I can hear them, the killing shots.

These thoughts would never rise from the grave again,

Tell me one thing! If you’re not happy,

What is the point of being sane?

During our life, we think of so many desires,

What do we do, if one by one, all our desires, expires!

Let’s get out of this saneness fast,

Or you’ll dry out of this world just like a forgotten movie cast.

Live up to your passion, keep them dreams alive,

Don’t let them fade away, don’t make them part of an archive.

The chances of achieving of your dreams are bleak,

But be like teak, don’t care about world, it is happiness! What you seek.

I need to cherish, the moments I’m living,

Let’s meet with new people, make new memories and celebrate an early thanksgiving.

COFFEE WITH A CURLY-HAIRED Girl (I)

A few days ago one of my close friends introduced me to a beautiful girl, & probably the happiest person I have ever met.

She has a bizarre ideology for life.

‘Don’t CARE, Don’t BOTHER, Don’t ask WHY & moreover Don’t EXPECT.’

She is the one, I can see & tell, who has a positive energy on her face. Her ideologies seem to be queer but she is happy or she is showing it off but she seems so full of positive vibes, one can’t resist her.

I am the one who tries to find logic in everything, or you can say I need closure for everything. I ask too many ‘why’, I want everything to make sense.
“That’s where you are wrong Mr.”
She said to me. Presumably she knows me very well and on the other hand, I have no idea what kind of person she is.
“You have a clear conscious & you are a good-hearted man, but are you convinced with your life? Can your achievements justify your hard work, dedication & sincerity?
This statement gets me to think.
If you are fair to the world, that doesn’t mean that the world will be fair to you.
“These things give contentment to me,” I said.
“Are you happy? For once you can satisfy your soul & even your mind, but what about your HEART. Where is your logic now? Do you just want this SATISFACTION?” she replied.

A HEART WANTS WHAT IT WANTS, YOU CAN’T BECOME EMOTIONALLY STRONG BY STIFLING YOUR FEELINGS.

INDEPENDENCE

70 years ago we struggled to get back what was righteously ours. We are still coping. 

Before leaving ‘the others’ followed an artifice, DIVIDE, AND RULE (I know they did it throughout their span, but I am talking especially about just before they left). They saw us as a potential threat who not only could invade but also can bring down the apocalypse so, for their own protection, they divided us into nations, religions, castes & who knows what more. To eliminate the threat they taught us to use money as a powerful weapon & ‘the Chair’ as a powerful position to make people puppets. 

They made sure that we couldn’t find a way to mend ourselves. It seems that it worked. The wounds are still fresh. It’s time to see beyond. We belong to one of the most intelligent & powerful nations in the world, every nation knows that. ‘The others’ saw that we have what is required to make every other nation believe in our mantle. 
Agar hum zid pe aa jaye na, toh zalzala la dein. 
But only if we keep our past & differences aside and work together as one. The people and the Government should complement each other, just like tea & sugar in milk. I believe that we can do it by fighting together to make sure to be called ‘Sone ki Chidia’, again. 

I am the one who believes in Bhagat Singhji’s ideology, ” Behron ko sunane ke liye dhamake ki zaroorat hoti hai.”

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY

F.R.I.E.N.D.S

F.R.I.E.N.D.S. comprises of 7 letters. 

No. 7 is considered very lucky in the ancient history of my country. 

F.R.I.E.N.D.S. can turn your 7 Cardinal sins {Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy & Pride} to 7 Virtues {Chastity, Temperance, Charity, Diligence, Patience, Kindness, Humility}. 

They are the one who can drive/control our 7 Emotional spectrum which is same as the colors in the Rainbow {Violet- Love, Indigo- Compassion, Blue- Hope, Green- Willpower, Yellow- Fear, Orange- Greed & Red- Rage}. 
Just wanted to say thank you for sticking up with me and tolerating my absurdity. 
I’ll be there for you

When the rain starts to pour

I’ll be there for you

Like I’ve been there before

I’ll be there for you

Cause you’re there for me too
Wrote this one exactly a year ago. 
Dost na hote toh zindagi maikhane mein kat gyi hoti 

Dost se sadiyaan hai, nahi toh khushiyan lamhon mein badal gyi hoti

Tu hai toh yeh kitaab hai, varna kahani kuch panno mein simat gyi hoti

LOVE YOU GUYS
HAPPY FRIENDSHIP DAY 

The Bewilderment: Happiness or Society

‘Society’ has ruined more dreams than Alcohol.

A few decades back people ‘also’ used to celebrate the success of their neighbors & known associates. That happiness comes from the depth of their heart. They supported each other in need. This ‘tradition’ is still in action in some places.

Apart from that

Now, people are jealous of the success of even their relatives. Inter-caste marriage, love marriage, start-ups, relations with lower caste, friends group having both genders & few career choices like painter, photographer, musician, writer, sportsman etc are considered as a crime in our ‘society’.
Who are you to judge?
It’s my choice, I convinced my parents & they are OK with that. So, I do not need to give an explanation to anyone.

You celebrate my loss & mourn when I succeed. Who gave you the right to banish my family from your so called ‘society’ on the decision which brings happiness to us without any wrong doing.

If you think like this then I am banishing your ‘society’ for screwing my happiness.

This kind of ‘society’ deprives us of living a satisfactory life.

What would you choose?

Happiness or Society?

I have started taking decisions based on my happiness & those who care for me.
Pata hai aakhri mein ‘Chaar log kya kahenge’ 

RAM NAAM SATYA HAI

WHAT IF… 

I am a bit confused about the fact that, ‘Where do the donations made in Holy places go?’ 

We all might have thought about it at least once but never gave it a deeper thought.

Does God need money? 

For furnishing his home? 

For decorating his backyard? 

Lighting a lamp where it is needed is better than where it is just an another decoration. 

What happens to all those grand donations & secret donations? 

No one has any kind of record for that because it is difficult to maintain. But, one can have a monthly record of visitors. Just check the security data & see the number of check-ins (through the security gate).

I am a planning engineer, not from a financial background but what if 

‘(Number of check-ins per month*5)= (Income tax to be paid by Holy places for that month)’ 

Which is roughly 30% of donations per month. 

This should be applicable in the places where the footfall is over 25000 per month, all over the country. 

Put that money to a better use, where a normal tax doesn’t help.  Let us say in orphanage, homeless peoples, BPL population & others like this.
I am just curious that whether it is possible or not.

The Burning Train 

A very famous movie from 1980, featuring a huge all star cast. The plot revolves around a train named Super Express that catches fire on its inaugural run from New Delhi to Mumbai.

“Randhir has planted a bomb in the engine of Super Express at the Mathura Railway station and disengaged the vacuum brakes so that even guard wouldn’t be able to stop the train. The bomb was timed to explode halfway through the journey. He hopes to sabotage the train and thereby destroy Vinod’s reputation without a scant thought to the lives of the passengers.”

Not exactly the same, but something like this happened recently. 

What if the Super Express is Tejas Express….

Think of Randhir as the people who boarded the Mumbai to Goa train & Government of the country as Vinod. 

Vandalizing, stealing, spoiling & who knows what more. 

Are we seriously like this? 

Why? 

I know everyone is not perfect, a lacuna will always exist, but at least someone is trying to help & this is what they get. This time it’s completely our fault. It’s public property, it’s for our benefit & see what some confused people did to that. 

You don’t do this in your own house. Do you? 

Everyone represent their country, do you want you or your country to be remembered like this? Don’t make anyone think that we don’t deserve good. 

Dusre ke kaam pe sawal uthana aasan hai, 

Kabhi khud ki mehnat ko zalil hote dekha hai?

FORTUNATE  to be UNFORTUNATE 

We belong to a society where, in one hand people have high end smart phones while stepping out of their premium model cars and in the other hand they have backward category certificates to get ‘privileges’.

WHY? 

Why the people who probably deserve it do not know about it while the people who already have ‘everything’ are craving for it. 

People even vandalize  public property to gain reservation, while the one who actually need it are working hard to feed their families without even knowing that there is this thing called RESERVATION.

This provision of RESERVATION is for those who are not able to afford their daily requirements, even after working rigorously. 
It is for the ones who, if provided with appropriate environment, could do great deeds for their family and nation. It’s same as crutches to handicap. But it is used by the people who don’t even want to start but wish for a good result anyway, even after having everything, they want more. 

I also belong to some category, but I don’t want its advantages as my family and I are capable enough & we believe that it should be used only by the needy, not by the greedy ones. 

I have one request to the Government of the country that please revise the guidelines of the RESERVATION system in favor of poor, not the rich & the corrupt.  Grade the people on the basis of earnings per month & then assign the rights & privileges to the group.

A Question (Part 2)

I am not doing that good but I would like to ask a question to all the alumni of IIT & IIM, who choose to do a job that everyone else is doing.
I expect you guys to lead our country, not to undertake ‘something normal’. By ‘something normal’ I mean not actually contributing to nation’s progress. I expect you to make technological advancements, bring in some new and genuine changes in the nation by introducing new thoughts in everyone’s mind, upgrading yourself in order to upgrade the country as well its people, changing perspectives, selfless contributions to the nation & more. 
You lead, and we follow. Take our nation to a great height. Your goal should have been clear. If not then don’t  waste a seat at least. Someone could have done justice with that seat. Someone might have needed it at that time. Someone could have been much better than you in there. Don’t be this selfish. 
I know someone who is a former IITan & teaching in a village currently. It’s great that you are passing on your knowledge to the younger & the unprivileged ones, starting from the grass root level but don’t you think you have done that without getting into an IIT, without wasting a seat. Compression ratio of petrol engine is 8 to 10 & it won’t change with the institute, it’s constant. You are doing great deeds but why did you shatter somebody’s dreams. 
And our society blindly assumes that if a person is an IIT or IIM pass out will surely make a great life partner, but are they using their extra ordinary talent for the good of the country??? 
It’s just an example. 
Socho toh bahut kuch hai.
I know I might be wrong, & am ready to change my perspective, but I don’t think it will happen anytime sooner. 
I have promised myself that I ll be the necessary change one day. Soon.
