Be You

Be You

I’m not a poet. Or a writer.

As a matter of fact, I don’t even remember the last time, I had a creative thought !!!

I’m thinking sometimes,
“Is it me?
Am I unimaginative?
Is the weight of the cruel world crushing me?
Is it the reality, the World which surrounds me?
Or is it what I choose to see?”

If the answer is TRUE for the last one, then???
Then maybe my own soul is being sucked by myself, my choices. 😐

It’s a battle. A war. My mind at war with my thoughts. My creativity opposed by my rationality.

Rational..is that the word???
Or perhaps I’m trying to find an excuse for being so pessimistic. And so pathetic.
M’I giving sympathy to myself?

But the world is upsetting me and so is my life!!! This is not me ! what I’m thinking now? I want to drown. But, I want to shout out to the world before I do. I want the world to know what I was, what I could have been, and what was taken away from me, for one last time.

One last time, before I’m lost from the face of the Earth…
Again, I want to be what I was used to be!
An Artist, A Good Writer, A Graceful Dancer, A Bubbly Girl, A Talkative-Chirping Bird. I want to be Me, The best version of Me O:)

Today, let my thoughts flow. Let my mind not be buried in thoughts of the chains that binding me from being what I am 🙂

Make A Huuuuuuuuge Difference

“Ye jeena bhi koi jeena hai?”, (are we really living?), this is the line we often hear and think. Then, we all get into the discussion that we are doing same routine tasks and there is no fun in this life. Then, we start making plan to go for a bike ride in Ladakh or an adventurous trip to Goa. In 90% of cases, all these stay in discussions, and in rest 10% of cases, people go for that trip. But, then? Then, same routine life and same line, “Ye jeena bhi koi jeena hai?” A single trip doesn’t make any big difference. All these happiness are mundane. But, can we do anything to make our lives happier? Ammm, yes we can. We surely can, and we even don’t need to go for any trip for that 🙂 In fact, we can make a huge happy difference in many lives with very small gestures. How? Let me share a few real life examples:

make-a-differenceMy routine involves commuting in AMTS (city bus). I need to change the bus and there are a few blind people who also commute in AMTS. Sometimes I see when they are walking, people step away in a way like they have some infectious disease. When they ask someone like,”where is the bus?”, People shout, “there?”. I feel like, they are blind, but are you, too? What we need to do is to help them by holding their hand and getting them to bus? Just by putting our hesitation aside. Yes, I do it, too. I regularly assist blind people to get bus and even seat. I didn’t knew but it made a difference. 😉 I got very sick in recent past which gifted me weakness. Once I was sitting and watching a blind uncle coming towards the stop. My weakness was holding me on the seat, but I was ready to run and hold him if he stumbles. But, another regular passenger of our bus held his hand and get him to the bus stop. I felt :). For 1-2 days I gotta miss my bus, and in the next week, when I got that bus, I heard an aunt (who used to quarrel for no reason with almost everyone) was asking someone, “That girl who helps blinds and old people daily doesn’t seems to be coming? Hope she is not sick as weather is not good”. I felt like whoa, this is my real earning. I made a difference and it made a huuuuge difference. 🙂

Another examples are those people who are around us (can be strangers or known), and frustrated on something or someone, and keep on blabbing for no reason. Earlier I felt like, please, I don’t want to listen. But, now I do listen. Neah! I don’t be part of the conversation as I hate it the same way you might, I just listen and nod my head. I can say I lend my ears to them. They feel light. Sometimes I feel to stay alone, but still I listen :)( with a thinking that if my nodding can make them feel good then, why not?

Another example, which we all might face, that one friend, who come to us only when he/she is in our need. 😐 A few of you might have many as such friends. We all can empathize how does it feel when our own friends forget us in good time, and recall us in their bad time only. But, at that time, instead of getting angry, the best thing to do is, be with them because you are gifted to heal them, and that’s why they come to us. 🙂

There can be so many as such small gestures such as making that one sad girl sitting in the corner smile :); making someone realize how important he/she is 🙂 ; helping a passerby to his destination 🙂 ; giving lift to someone going to the same way; so on and so forth.

I am not saying all these to steal your praise. I just shared all these because I have seen people getting inspired and start doing such things. If at least 1% of you get inspired by this and 0.5% of you start practicing these, then it will make so many souls happy 🙂 That’s what I desire…. 🙂

We all used to be with the people we are in need of because they make us happy. But, I have learned, being with the one who needs us will make our soul happy…. Spreading smile on someone’s sad face will spread inner peace in our spirit. Just put that hesitation aside and try it once. Because I know it makes a huuuuuuuggge difference in our life, in their life, and everywhere around us as we believe it or not people do get inspired by all these.

Let’s Try To Make It Normal

This Blog might sound like ramble, but I thought to ramble today, it might help someone. 🙂 These days, I see lots of sad people around me. I know some of them and some of them are strangers, but as an empathetic person I quickly catch the sadness lurking behind a smiling face. I want to take away that sadness, but it’s not in my hand 😐 So I thought to write a Blog, which will reveal how we may deal with the unexpected feelings and emotions, as these are the things people are getting affected with. If you think it is worth sharing then share these with your friends or the needy one, because our motto is take away sadness as much as possible, at least for as much time as possible 🙂

So let’s start.

Synopsis
We usually get upset, hurt or sad because of the people around us. They can be friends, colleagues, strangers, loved ones, authority, any one. So this Blog is written around the issues and solutions related to it. It won’t give any possible solution to become a billionaire in 7 days 😀 Come on! It wasn’t that bad, smile a little 🙂

Accept the fact
Most of the issues are there because we don’t accept the fact, even if it is just in front of our eyes. We want to see the sweet lie. For ex: if you see, you are no longer important in someone’s life, you have to accept it. Also, you have to accept that you can’t get the same value again. It can be either more if things get sorted out or it will be completely demolished. But, it can’t be as it was or as you desire.

Accept, it is all your mistakes, and it is okay to be mistaken
Nobody is wrong according to his/her own point of view. Still, just say yes, it is my mistake. May be you are right, but the next person is also right at his place. Even if he/she is wrong, still it is your mistake that you trusted a wrong person. See, you can’t blame others for your life and its problems. You are the one who lead your life so you are the one who is mistaken. Once you accept this fact, dealing with the situation would be little easier because now you won’t expect the next person to realize his/her mistake. 🙂

Once you accept it is your mistake, no need to be sad about it. It’s okay to make mistakes. What’s not okay is to repeat the same mistake again and again! Now, this is the time to find the solution.

Ask yourself a solution, Have a self-talk
Only you know yourself, your relations, your expectations, your issues and its solutions. Steal some time and sit with yourself. Ask what is wrong? What do you think a solution can be? What solution you want? Others can only empathize, it’s you, who can simplify it. I continue with the example of getting devalued in your closed one’s life. Here, possible solutions are:

  • Discuss with the person and resolve the things
  • Get away from the person forever
  • Get emotionally detached and stay connected

Select the solution
Once you come up with the solutions, you have to select the one. But, here be cautious. Don’t look for short term or temporary solutions. Think for the long term. If you select to resolve the issues, you have to also accept the fact that there might be more issues in the future and you are ready to deal with those. If you decide to move on, you have to be strong enough to stick with that decision, no matter what happens!

Stay Strong

Stay Strong

Face it; Don’t run from it
Sometimes it is possible that you feel that it is getting difficult to deal with the situation. May be you want to go away from the person/place who is bothering you, but you can’t for certain reasons such as you can’t drop the college because you feel your best friend got another best friend and you are unable to digest this. In such situation, you have to be strong as in life there will be abundant as such situations. You can’t sneak out forever, you have to face the fact and you have to learn to live with it. So be strong enough to face your issues with a bold face when you know, you can’t get away.

I know, you might be feeling writing is easier, practicing is not. I strongly agree. It is damn difficult to do all these, but we have to. Because, in the journey of our life, we have to find and craft a “Strong “Me”” every time we are knocked down by destiny or karma. Being weak is not an option dear!

Once Upon A Time!

Once upon a time, there was a girl who was good at her work. She had achieved many things professionally at a really young age. She also had many friends. She was good at balancing both her career and friends. One of her friends used to pressurize her that ‘instead of balancing, give more focus on your career. Don’t settle down with your achievements. Leave this habit of Facebook (she had her fan group with thousands of members), utilize this time in better activities. Stop chasing emotions & people, chase your dreams. Instead of trying to keep everyone around you happy which is almost impossible, try to earn the pride in your work. Do something great by being more serious because you are different and you are meant to be the one!’ 🙂

Just like any one of us, she didn’t listen. She thought, I am a team leader at this age. My bosses are happy. I am pride for my family. And in all these, I easily manage to do some Facebook, some chat with friends, and chattering! So what’s wrong with it? That friend of hers kept on telling her to focus on career more, but she kept on ignoring him. At last that friend gave up. He never liked to write anything still he wrote a last note to her via email before resting his case. The letter was very lengthy, but the highlights of it reads,

“Dear, Stop being weak and distracted by this temporary things & mundane joy. Also, don’t try to get mixed with the crowd around you. You are different, you are unique & you meant to be this. There are so many girls who pursue different courses to be like you still they can’t get what you have inherently. Know and value your uniqueness. You can do miracles in your life and inspire many. The only thing you need to do is “Define meaning of your life & FOCUS”. You know how proud I feel when someone appreciates you! You have many great qualities, yet some needs to get polished. These weaknesses of yours (Facebook, chattering, etc.) are distracting you from what you are supposed to be. Remember, you are unique & you deserve much more than what you have, today!”

After reading this she promised to do what he was suggesting, but she couldn’t! She ends up doing what she used to do. Her friend got tired of telling her meaninglessly. He gradually left her. No the friendship is intact, but he was detached from her & made a healthy distance. Maybe because he had big dreams for her friend who was enjoying her distractions & think she has achieved enough. Her life was going well with the normal routine of work, achievements, emotional outburst, chattering, Facebook, outing, etc.

One day, her day of transformation came. She decided to choose the tough path of giving more than 100% to her professional life. She joined a new company as a manager. She opted for a few professional courses. She started taking more initiatives, more job responsibilities. She started listening to her critics to understand the points of improvement instead of listening to respond & justify herself. Initially, all this was too tough, but then it started becoming her routine life. People around her started feeling this change, kept texting her & asking “Are you angry? Are you upset?, etc.”. Even alleged her to be rude & egoistic. This could have been distraction to go back into that mediocre settled life of her. But, she was tenacious for her choice. Instead of replying to each individually, which might drag her back in game of justification & emotions, she just made a public reply,

on-this-day

When she started this hard journey, she realized she was not that perfect or successful as she always thought she was! The criticism needed to be worked upon instead of justified. She uncovered so many facts & skills of her own. She made a huge success. 🙂 She became much more successful, and inspiration and mentor of a few. She loves this transformation and everything it gifted her. She isn’t settled with her achievements, she is hungry for more and more & trying for that. She misses her friend who wanted her to be on this path of success, but you can’t touch the same water & emotions again. Never mind, his blessings are still with her! 🙂

The End Note:
We used to settle down with our achievements because we compare it with those who couldn’t achieve this. Whilst we should compare it with them who have achieved more than us. We have to challenge ourselves. We have to focus on the important things instead of balancing everything. Else we will pass our lives in balancing instead of achieving.

And ya, we all get many friends who love us & care for us, but a very few of us get blessed with the friends who scold us for not achieving something more & push us to uncover our magnificent talents. Make sure you don’t lose them as she did!

Sacred Month of Shravan And Divine Power of Lord Shiva

Lord Shiva

Lord Shiva

Of all the months, Shravan Maas (July-August) is considered most auspicious. It is the fifth month of the solar year and is also known as ‘Avani’ in the Tamil scriptures. As per Vedic astrology, when the Sun enters the zodiac Leo, Shravan Maas is said to set in. As per lunar calendar, Shravan sets in on the New Moon Day.

On Full Moon Day (Punam or Purninma), the divine firmament (sky) is under the celestial sovereignty of Shravan Nakshtra (one of twenty seven Nakshatras). Therefore it is called Shravan. Each day during this month is auspicious for worshipping Shambhu (Shiva). Prayers and Vedic rituals are performed in Lord Shiva temples in order to please Him. Shravan Maas is also a holy month filled with other festivals such as Naga-Panchami, Govatsa, Shravani Purnima, Vara Lakshmi Vrata, Rishi Panchami and Raksha Bandhan.

Since it is the most auspicious period, one can take advantage of it by performing Shravan Maas Shiva Puja. During this month, the cosmos is super charged with Shiva tattvas (Shiva elements) that purify the mind, the senses, the body and the self (Soul) through the rituals dedicated to Lord Shiva. Following pujas can be performed under qualified Brahmins.

Significance of Shravan Maas:
Devotees observe austerities, fasts and prayers in this holy month of Shravan. This is the time when Lord Shiva drank the poisonous Halahala that emanated from Samudra Manthan between the Devas and Asuras for the quest of the Nectar (ambrosia). During the Manthan, the ocean produced lots of valuables such as gemstones, Goddesses riches, cows, bows, the Moon, conch etc., which were taken up by gods and demons. Fourteen different gems emerged from the ocean, which were divided them. When the Ocean produced the deadliest poison called Halahala, all of them cringed back as it was too dangerous to destroy the universes. It was Shiva who decided to drink it to save the world. His devout wife saw him taking Halahala, she at once held His throat so that the poison wouldn’t go down. As a result His throat turned blue and He was called Neelkantha.

Spiritual Activities During Shravan
One must engage in devotional activities such as worship, Sadhanas, Meditaion or Bhajans at home or in Shiva temples. One must visit Shiva temples during this month. Each day of this month carries spiritual significance

  • Monday: is the day to worship Lord Shiva.
  • Tuesday: women worship Gauri for the better health of their family.
  • Wednesday: is dedicated to Vithala, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu or Krishna.
  • Thursday: is for worshiping Buddh and Guru.
  • Friday: for worshiping Lakshmi and Tulsi.
  • Saturday: is for Saturn (Shani Dev). These days are also known as Shravan Saturdays or Sampat Sanivara (wealth Saturdays) as one can pray for obtaining wealth.
  • Sunday: is for the Sun god. Sun worship was common practice in the Vedic period and it is followed even now. Especially in Shravan, every Sunday the Sun is worshiped.

Things to do in Shravan Maas
Since Shravan Mass is highly auspicious as per the Vedas, you can engage in activities that add to your devotion to Shiva.

Rudra Abhishek And Homa:
Rudra means the one who is terribly infuriated, which is one of the divine qualities of Lord Shiva who displays it while performing his cosmic dance, Tandava for the annihilation of creations. Shiva, by the virtue of this quality, is called Rudra. Abhishek means a method of worship offered to the Divine for cleansing all the misgivings, sins of the worshiper.

Performing Shiva Abhishek includes the offerings of Panchamrit (mix of milk, honey, sugar, ghee and curd, Ganga jal, Bael Patra (Bilva leaves), Dhatura and other sacred items dear to Lord Shiva.

Rudra Abhishek and Homa purify your mind and body, offer peace, fulfills your desires and enlighten your soul.

Mantra Chanting
You may chant the following Shiva Mantras using a Rudraksha rosary or silently in mind. Chanting may be done at specified time and with a specific number of counts (108 times or multiples of it) in the morning or evening, or you may do ajapa-japa, a silent repetition of the mantra throughout the day.
Om Namah Shivaya||
“I am None other than Shiva who is the supreme reality. Na-ma-Ha, means None other than”

Mahamrityunjaya Mantra:-
tryambakaṃ yajāmahe sugandhiṃ pushtivardhanam ।
urvārukamiva bandhanān mrityormukshīya mā’mratāt ।।

“OM! We worship the Three-eyed Lord Who is fragrant and Who nourishes and nurtures all beings. As the ripened cucumber (without the intervention of the gardener) is freed from its bondage (to the creeper), may He liberate us from death for the sake of immortality.”

Rudra Gayatri Mantra:-

Om Tatpurushaya Vidmahe Mahadevaya Dhimahi
Tanno Rudrah Prachodayat॥

“OM! Let me meditate on the great Purusha, Oh, greatest God, give me higher intellect, and let God Rudra illuminate my mind.”

Also, you can read stories about Lord Shiva, read the Shiva Purana and meditate on His holy form. This is true Bhakti.

Fasting For Shiva on Mondays during Shravan Maas:
According to Shiva Purana, those who observe fast during Shravan Maas have their desires fulfilled and are blessed with the grace of Shiva. Shravan Maas Somvar is very important for the devotees of Lord Shiva.

There are two ways in which fast can be observed and they are:

  • Austere Fast: In this type of fasting, a person does not eat anything for an entire day except for drinking water. The fast is broken in the evening after sunset and regular food without onion and garlic is consumed.
  • Partial fast:In a partial fast one can eat fruits and permitted foods like sabudana and nuts in the day and eat one time meal in the night.

The fast is broken after sunset, although in some cases it continues till next day. Devotees offer their prayers to Lord Shiva and then consume normal food.

Another type of fasting is that you can keep a maun vrat (Silence) on one whole day in this month and remember Shiva in your mind.

Benefits of Fasting on the Somvar (Monday) in Shravan Maas:

  • Devotees are blessed with spiritual bliss
  • Improves physical and mental health
  • Increases willpower and memory
  • Women who fast on Shravan Mondays (Somvars) get the perfect husband
  • Fasting removes obstacles by expelling negativity

Summing Up…😇

thanks minionsThese days my mornings are filled with tranquil repose. Such is the sheer morning bliss of waking up in a quiescent paradise marked by perfect harmony. I really love sleeping, being an Insomniac it’s tough to sleep early at night, but I like that sweet sleep of 2-3 hours in the morning. Slowly the alarm at 6.00 AM lost its prominence and I am able to greet the clock and warned not to snooze the alarm again. 😀 The sun only after another hour flies by the window panes. Now, what eases my conscience is the beautiful Monsoon Morning Weather. ☂ As monsoon has already started, that cool breeze with dampness touches my chubby cheeks and make me slothful 😉 Musing on memories by adding some mellifluous chirping of birds, sweet sound of bells from the temple and roars of roads too! Feels amazing 🙂 Little funny, may you will laugh, but the reason behind this is nothing else but my Birthday 😉 Yesss…!!! Hope some of you are also like me, who are too excited about their birthdays… or I’m the only weirdo like this!😎

I used to make my friends and family tired just by asking them to count the days remaining for my birthday… for 2-3 months, 😀 and then used to listen, ” Aliii, haju 3-3 mahinao nii vaar chhe, su tu b Magaj khay cheee :p ” But that doesn’t change my routine to ask them for remaining days 😀

Finally, the day! It’s my Birthday today 😇

And every time from the wishlist the first thing I urge for is, “Prabhuu! aaje varsad na aavee, bs…” But this time, Rain is too much irregular in Ahmedabad, specifically. I have caught the rain by taking first half leave and starts drizzling in the second half only 😀 It’s like, God is splashing a Fogg (Brand) Scent.

But this time, my mind wondered, if rain is such a beautiful bliss, why do we really run away from it? Why are we so afraid to let those cool droplets embrace our face, to tickle our souls, to harmonise our mind with this beautiful phenomenon of nature? So, don’t hide yourself. Step outside. Let those little drops of hope cuddle you, let your joys fly, place yourself in the orbit of happiness.

By summing up, at last I wanna say on my birthday, I have a fabulous set of memories. Life is more than just a summation of miseries, woes, troubles and confusion and I don’t wanna let other’s negativity cloud my views. There is a lot of sunshine, some perfect moments, a few relationships for lifetime, reflections, solitude, lessons learned, studies unlearned, and some cherished people who filled my life with fond memories♥ Through the walk of life, I discovered joy in music, books, writing, friends, family, colleagues, mentors and myself, which filled my life with love, laughter and a sense of celebration. Thanking each and every fellow who wished me and still making efforts to make my birthday special. Also thanking internet and social media sites for making people remember my birthday 😀

Thank You 🙂

એકલતા….. મારી સખી .!

Lonely-girlએકલતા તો મારી બાળપણ ની સખી છે, આ તો તમારી સાથ નિભાવાની એ તત્પરતા ભરમાવી ગઈ મને,…. બાકી એકલતા તો મારી બાળપણ ની સખી છે……

જનમો જન્મ નો સાથ તો આપડો હતો જ નહીં ક્યારેય , પણ આટલી જલ્દી આ વળાંક આવી આપડો સાથ છોડાવી ગયું, બસ આ સત્ય કરમાવી ગયું મને .. બાકી એકલતા તો મારી બાળપણ ની સખી છે…

સંબંધો કે લાગણીની તરસ તો હતી જ ક્યારે મને? આ તો ક્ષણભરનું બતાવેલું તમારું લાગણીસભર મૃગજળ ભરમાવી ગયું મને.. .. બાકી એકલતા તો મારી બાળપણ ની સખી છે…

આજ પણ સાચા લાગતા તમારા એ વચનો જે તમે જાતે જ તોડ્યા… સાચું જે આજે દેખાય છે એ કે જે કાલે હતું એ? આ વિચાર આજે પણ ચકરાવી ગયું મને….. બાકી એકલતા તો મારી બાળપણ ની સખી છે….

That Strange Feeling…?¿

A terrible brawl it was! Which should have never happen…

It’s about when she went to her home. She is living alone in a city as she is a working woman and her family is far away so she used to visit her home occasionally. Her family is facing some peril problems since long. Due to that, her family was separated before some years, her mom and dad were living in different cities, her younger brother had a shoddy effect on his mind, studies, ultimately on the future…

that strange feeelingHer dad has scolded her mother because of some silly mistakes and now, as she(the gal) has grown up and mature, she raised her voice for the first time in front of her dad. Her brother was giving his efforts to calm her sister down. All were arguing with each other badly, and her mother was crying, trying to stop her children from fighting. The whole family is surrounded by bitter truths and painful memories. We all know the truth, daughters are always an angel for fathers and so she was for her father too 🙂 Her father used to decorate the home by her angel’s memories when she came to visit them. From an arch to teddy-bears, hand puppets, her trophies, medals, and the most precious – her Art. Yes, she is an Artist. Her father framed the first sketch of her, which she made when she was just 6 years old. 🙂 Wonderful memories, those were !!!

But that day, her father spoiled everything in anger. He had destroyed each and everything related to her daughter. Thrown her childhood memories, dumped every painting, sketches, trophies. Glasses were scattered on the floor. She was seeing these all with shock by sitting in a corner of the hall. Her mother started picking up the tiny glasses from the floor 😦 Father held his daughter’s hand roughly and rushed to the door by telling her, “This is not your home from now onwards, you don’t dare to come here again.”

She left her home the same night by assembling some of her broken memories, sketches and trophies! Her mom was continually crying and making her daughter persuade to forget about her father’s words.

She didn’t go to her home till date after that!!!

She called her mother, but never talked with her father. Asked her mom about his health, but she didn’t have guts to talk to him. She was not able to forget that worst fight. Her father was also not showing any interest in any stuffs related to his daughter. It is said that, the relation between a Daughter and her Father is the most beautiful one, but the quotes like these are just quotes and not the reality for that broken Gal.

But today, she met her parents. Yes, her parents were going somewhere for some personal work and there was a halt of half an hour in the same city where she is living. Her mother asked her to come and meet them. She was very excited as she was going to meet her mom, but she was not happy while thinking about her dad. Why so??? Just because of the fear. Flashes of that quarrel were passing through her eyes. It was evening time, so, unfortunately due to the traffic problem, she reached late at the station. She thought her father will again scold her, but the moment she saw him, she melted. Her father was running towards her by waving his hand to call her. She used to bow down to her elders so she did the same. She is very talkative and playful. But she was quite at that time. Her father started asking her about her life, job, health and then she started answering. Her father gave her a box full of her favourite sweets. While taking it, she saw her father’s eyes full of tears which were about to come out and roll down through chicks. Dad was trying too hard to stop them, but somehow he couldn’t and he gave a tight warm hug to his daughter. What a strange feeling it was!

Time to say Goodbye now. Her mom always cries when she needs to say bye to her daughter, but today, she was happy by seeing a father-daughter’s love again. They departed. After reaching home, she received a text message. She closed the door of her room and cried out loudly. The message was, ” Thanks for coming beta. I love to see you when you are smiling, so never cry. Eat all the sweets soon and keep it safe so that ants don’t get a chance to eat yours 😉 I love you beta! ”

From Dream to Destiny

Let me tell you an interesting story of One Girl which i had read somewhere and I feel to share it with you all, so here I go… (the story of Riya & Saurabh)

Dream to Destiny

Dream to Destiny

That was my Cousin Sister’s marriage when I first saw him. (When it is your sister’s marriage, you feel somewhat more special, especially if you are single :P)

So many people’s eyes caught on you. I was one of them. I was feeling so special, more beautiful. It was full of joy. I had always been the kind of girl who was least bothered about boys, crushes and dating, but now I was behaving like a typical teenage girl.

Before marriage, there was a mehndi function, as you all know, Mehndi function is more important & more interesting to the bride’s sister than to bride herself. We all were enjoying that function.

While I was trying to figure out how to find out more about him,an uncle came up to me. He was related to my brother-in-law, and we were having a conversation when I suddenly heard someone say, “Dad, I think we should leave now.” I turned around and there stood my crush, right next to me. I suddenly felt my knees go weak and my cheeks turn pink. Uncle introduced his son to me and told me his name. Saurabh smiled at me and said, “Hi”. I made so many efforts to just see his face, but all fails and he went. I kept observing him throughout the function and by the end of the day I had developed a huge crush on him. (Now-a-days teenagers don’t like to attend relatives marriage function with their parents, but yes, if it is their friend’s marriage, then they enjoy a lot, Seems confusing!).

All the time in the function, my attention was caught by this boy. Before hearing that voice, I was enjoying my sister’s marriage at fullest, but then I was only thinking about him. You can say I was fallen in love with his voice, Yes Love at first sight (but I have not looked his face till yet).

I was lost to the whole world. During the course of the two-day mehndi function I met his dad a couple of times more, but still didn’t muster enough courage or get the chance to talk to Saurabh. The function ends and we left for our home.

That whole night I couldn’t sleep well, I was just thinking about him and I was dreaming about him. How he looks? how he behaves? his likes? dislikes? etc…

And then I decided that tomorrow (marriage day), I will talk to him, whatever happen. I have made myself ready enough to face. That night for me was like never ending. The time went slow, clock stopped, but the thoughts in my mind weren’t getting stopped.

On Marriage day, the decoration was lovely, the whole mandap was decorated with red rose flowers and it was looking stunning. The bride & groom were looking best in their Costumes. All the baratis and relatives were enjoying the marriage function.

But my eyes were glued to the entrance of the hall, I was wondering for only one person, yes, you are right, I was searching for him all around the mandap, But he was not there. After two and half hours effort of finding him, I had failed and got disappointed, I couldn’t even tell him my feelings.

Then all of the sudden, again I heard his voice, I turned back, Yes he was there. He was tall, good looking and again caught my attention immediately. He was busy with his phone and didn’t even notice me. He seemed like a decent guy, he was friendly with everyone. I didn’t even know his name then. My heart skipped a bit. I was speechless. The day before I thought of talking a lot to him, but now I forgot all the words, I was just looking at him.

I step ahead to talk to him about my feeling for him. My heartbeat was running very fast as compared to a normal situation. As I go near to him, he left that place.

In my quest to find out more about him, I discovered a rather heartbreaking news that Saurbah was actually seeing this girl, who was a distant relative of my brother-in-law. I had become pally with the girl during the wedding and she told me there was something going on in between them. I was shattered; my love story was over even before it could begin. I still remember how I cried that day.

That night I didn’t sleep, The whole night I was thinking that Why god, why this happens to me only?. Even I couldn’t tell him what I was feeling for him. Why god you did this with me?, why not with others? I cried a lot. I was not able to control myself. I was broken from inside. I was in love with him, and before saying it to him, my all dreams scattered in a moment. But I tried to hide my feeling from my parents, and didi & jiju.

Dream to Destiny

Dream to Destiny

It took me a few months to actually stop thinking about him, but somehow I managed to move on. Every time anyone would speak of love or crush, he would be the first one to come to my mind.

I put the whole thing behind me and moved on in life. Though I would still feel a little strange whenever I meet him at family functions, I had made peace with the fact that nothing could happen between us.

After my graduation, my family started looking for a prospective husband for me. Most of my relatives were on the lookout for a suitable match for me. Initially, I refused to meet the guys they had suggested. I was just not ready to think about marriage. But eventually, I gave up and agreed to meet a certain guy my sister kept insisting me to meet. She claimed that I would be lucky to have this guy as a life partner.

I had given in to my family’s wish so I didn’t even ask anything about this guy. I decided to meet him and then reject him; that way I could tell my family that I did try and they wouldn’t bother me for at least a couple of months.

On the day when the guy and his family were supposed to come, I could smell the sweet aroma of the delicacies being prepared. I let my sister deck me up like a Christmas tree. Everyone was excited about the whole thing while I was thinking how futile all this was because I was going to say no to this rishta(relationship).

When my niece announced that the guy and his family had arrived, I got nervous and I couldn’t stop my tears. Before anybody could see me, I composed myself and got ready to face them. I had made a mental note of what all I would tell the guy before rejecting him. I went over those points again and went to the living room and then I heard a familiar voice. How could I ever forget that voice? The moment I saw the guy I froze and my heart started racing. It was Saurabh – my first crush. Yes, that marriage guy with whom I was in love.

His family members started asking me questions and I just couldn’t stop smiling and blushing. They left after about an hour and immediately my dad got a call, the guy had said yes and they wanted to know my answer. “Saurabh wants to marry me, the guy I had such a huge crush on likes me!”, the thought kept coming to my mind. Still, I told my family that I need time to think… however, I guess my sister could read the answer on my face.

But I couldn’t stop myself from saying yes to him…. I was so happy. It was a very big day for me. but that guy doesn’t know all these things.

Saurabh and I recently celebrated our first anniversary and we are madly in love with each other. I told him about my crush on him and often tease him for being so insensitive and not noticing me. He says that he didn’t have the slightest idea about the fact that I had a crush on him.

When I think about the day I saw him for the first time and the way I had felt, I believe that we were meant to be together. Nine years ago destiny had given me the hint about the man I would spend the rest of my life with. 😉

Keep Believing in your destiny……..

My Amazing Experience In a Stress Relieving Session At Ecosmob

I didn’t want to make the title too fancy this time because the topic, I wanna cover is as simple as you can think of. It is simply what I felt and want to share about my experience on last Saturday.

Our management had arranged a session on the topic of, “Stress Management – Thru Alfa – Powerful 7 min take away exercise”. I am an enthusiastic person and I always enjoy learning and experiencing new things so I was pretty excited. Once our HR given a node to get into the conference area, I was the first one to reserve the seat 🙂 Now, instead of getting into the minute level detail of my experience, let me get into the highlights, which might be of your interest. 🙂

The domain expert, Mr. Manish Thaker, is a really an expert with a great sense of humor and amazing energy. His energy and sense of humor had kept the session lively. I really liked the way he made the session interesting by sharing some humorous yet educating stories. The thing, he was trying to convey was, “Stress is internal, not external. Also, it is not a wealth which we should manage. It is something we should cope up with.” So true! We all must be knowing this, but sometimes, it is like we know it, but we don’t know it. 🙂 I wouldn’t share everything he said and talk as I would like you to call him to your organization and experience it on your own as I felt, he deserves it and you too. 🙂

He takes us to different rides, with 4 different segments. I would talk about the one, which I loved experiencing. 🙂 That segment was about, “Efforts to Effortlessness”. I loved the effortlessness part of it. So I will talk about it. After some hefty efforts of jumping, he asked us to sit down, in a relaxing position and close our eyes. Then, one by one he kept giving us instructions, which I tried to follow obediently. I felt it was a kind of regression process. He called it to get into an Alpha stage, which we used to be in, when we are in just before we fall asleep and just after we woke up from a sleep. I had an amazing, soothing experience, which made me calm, I felt.

Waterfall

Waterfall

What I saw is, I was wearing a plain white dress. My translucent dupatta was waving in the soothing fresh breeze. My hair was bothering my face, but I was enjoying it. 🙂 I found myself standing on a shore of a waterfall, a huge – very huge waterfall, in a dense forest. (While the fact is I love the ocean and the beach, not forest or waterfalls). This I felt even before Manish (Instructor) asked us to imagine or feel about. I could feel the grass, which he asked us to feel. I could hear the clatter of flowing water.

After some time, I saw myself lying on the lush green grass under an open blue sky with a few scattered white clouds. The cool yet naughty wind was kissing my forehead. I was smiling with closed eyes. 🙂 It was wow! Then, I felt like everything is moving, I felt like I am on a yacht and it is moving on oceans. Then, it started moving so fast that, for a time, I felt like maybe I am in a helicopter flying above the oceans as I could see bottle blue ocean water downside.

In the last stage of this regression/alpha process, I felt a warmth of a hug, we get from a dear one. I was standing on a yacht with closed eyes, feeling calm, and I loved the worry free smile I had on my face. I was just loving it, seeing myself like that, smiling one. In fact, I could feel I was smiling in reality by seeing me smiling in my imagination. 🙂 Then, Manish – Instructor, asked us to slowly open our eyes. I was enjoying so much, honestly, I just didn’t want to open my eyes. I wanted to stay there some more. I wanted to feel that worry free warmth some more. But, as I was conscious and unfortunately, I was sitting in the first row, I had to open my eyes with a thought everyone else might have already opened theirs. And we need to move to the next part of the session, too. And that happened, too.

The session moved to the next part. In the end, as per my habit, I asked too many questions I guess. 🙂 I hope people were not cursing me for taking their time and had enjoyed the QA session. In fact, it leads the instructor to take a small session, which was out of syllabus on, “Relationship between a man and a woman” 🙂

Then, the session concluded. Unlike others, I had a chatter with the Manish even after the session and I must say, he is a nice gentleman 🙂

Then I headed towards my home as it was Saturday. I found, a refreshed me after that session. However, I had to deal with some stress on the way to home. But, that’s fine, as I have accepted the fact that it is me who is causing stress to myself and not the stress itself, who is bothering me for quite a some time. 🙂

There are so many other things I wanna share based on the session and learning, but the length of the Blog gone too much. So I am skipping it. But, one thing I must share. A few people said they felt nothing or they felt unease. I think this is an amazing experience and to experience it you have to have patience, imagination power and obedient mind to follow the instructions, which were not so difficult to go with. 🙂 Honestly, my liking, my dressing style, etc. is quite different than what I saw in the “Alpha state”. So I was not forcing myself to see that. It was naturally happening. And believe me it was amazing. It still makes me smile when I recall it. So I suggest next time you attend any such session, just lose yourself and follow the instructor to feel the wonderful things!
