An interesting thought I came across ...little actions matter a lot. Something as trivial as forwarding a message/mail sent in "timepass" also matters. It shows that you are promoting that thought. So be careful and read properly what you send next time!

Read this somewhere.........
"Sooner or later we begin to understand that love is more than verses on valentines and romance in the movies. We begin to know that love is here and now, real and true, the most important thing in our lives. For love is the creator of our favourite memories and the foundation of our fondest dreams. Love is a promise that is always kept, a fortune that can never be spent, a seed that can flourish in even the most unlikely of places. And this radiance that never fades, this mysterious and magical joy, is the greatest treasure of all - one known only by those who love. "
But the best most beautiful and definition I heard is that "love is just love, it is not happiness or sadness....though it brings that based on how the on we love is feeling"...quoting out of a comment!Can't help it!

“To love is to suffer.
To avoid suffering, one must not love.
But then, one suffers from not loving.
Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer.
To be happy is to love.
To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy.
Therefore, to be happy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.”..

-A paradoxical yet beautiful quote that I read.

For me it means that both situations of happiness and sadness will exist in life. They are unavoidable even in the most beautiful parts of life.So we shouldn't try to hide from them under the cover of anyone or anything.


What is the difference between being selfish and being self centered?

I guess may be it's required to be a little self centered......but not selfish

We all talk about love and relationships and future. But when it comes to pure love, then there is no need to give it a name. It is just that And it stays just that no matter what you call it.But it's also something which noone can truly understand or define. They can only feel it. Like a soul.

Cheer up!

Somehow Blogging can never replace the diary. To vent your heart out, you need the physical activity of writing...and the privacy also...coz in privacy there is a protective wall from lonely words....

It's strange how in almost all problematci cheer up all that is required is a few of your very own passions.....
For be loved, write diary, to read a book , eat something nice, watch a light movie, listen to some songs .......
one of these is bound to work....for most ppl i guess
If it doesn't then just sleep over it.

Nothing can work right if you get swayed away from your priorities.
There are things in life which are above reason and above logic and above stubbornness.
Nothing can be achieved unless that is realised.

Learning techniques

The fundamental principle of machine learning is that initially you make assumptions( which are usually wrong) and then as you make mistakes, you learn and the mechanism improves. In some cases it even goes further to say that you must make mistakes of a particular order before your tool is ready.

How easy life would be if we accepted this simple life we can learn a lot from mistakes....(and until we do we may even make the same mistake again and again!)

Thus mistakes are not to be shunned but their causes must be removed without any sense of sadness of excessive guilt about them. Because that's how life progresses.


People and situations are not always what they seem by face value.Misjudgement will happen but it's OK if we learn from it.But it is much better to beleive in goodness of human nature.

Sometimes you are appreciated much more than you realise coz your eyes are closed.Open them and see the beautiful world around you.

Life is good:)

Life gets so complicated as you grow up...responsibilities,adjustments,so many ideologies undergo a change or have to , so many habits you must forgo. The world has certain norms for adults and expects them all to follow. But in childhood, it is so easy to break any norm and it i forgotten the next day. It would be so nice to be child always.

What makes these changes possible is love.
"Even is the terrain is rough, I will walk along if you will hold my hand"
Life is good!

A walk to remember

Some pics I enjoyed taking...............

(Bright and shiny like the glorious Sun)

(Such Richness in purple)

(kiss of nature)

(heart of nature)

(So far away yet so beautiful like..babies!)

(Us diverse people of different colors)
Sometimes I wonder if optimism kills instinct.....I mean we can train ourselves to happy but what actually feel gets hidden away from even us and we forget out genuine reaction to situations.....and thus may not be able to distinguish between things not good for us and things towards which we should be optimistic

Some random thoughts (converse converse)

Anne Frank rightly said" Despite everything I still believe in human goodness".
And as I would the worst never happens, things do becomes ok "somehow".

Anther thought.......If we knew and understood each other perfectly then there would be nothing left to say, no words. It's always in the "getting to know stage" that you have maximum words,queries. After someitme things become implicit. Then queries are only regarding different interpretations. It would be so motonous and dull if someone agreed to your would be like talking to new ideas......
'Coz each person in relation with us is like multiple gifts wrapped in many layers...each layer unravelling a particularly beautfiul and unique gem.....
After sometime this is what happens to converstions of some old friends.......
Hi hru?
Im fine, hru?
And what's happening these days?
Nothign new yaar, what about you?
Nothing here either.
Sad to hear these kind of conversations replacing the long chats and long days you may have once spent with those people.Why does it happen?Because if someone is in touch with our everyday realities then we can relate to them...but to someone else we wonder where to begin the to explain...and we end up keeping quiet....
That's no based on's based on how well you are connected....and that in turn is based on how much you try and how much effort you are willing to put into being connected.
If despite distance you are willing to update then this never happens.
Of course no updates don't ever mean no care, they just display the fats life around us and how we allow oursleves to get entrapped within it.

Green eyed monster

Green eyed monster
ripping me apart in mind
making me to all reason blind
from where does it come?
and why does it come?

green eyed monster
making blood rush through my veins
giving the heart all sorts of pains
why don't you leave me alone?
why not go somewhere else to moan?

green eyed monster
bring out the worst in me
for everyone dear or see known to see
where does it reside?
when does its power subside?

green eyed moster
making me lose all control
and forget my goal
why is it so strong?
does it mean i think all wrong?

green eyed moster
who lies in us all
based on our weakest link,our downfall
who is your one?

Isn't it as futile as a gun.
