Life always finds a way!

Life's a strange game,
Sometimes it's such a pain.

You seldom know what you want,
But you always know what you don't want.

Being true to yourself isn't easy,
Being at peace isn't easy.

Sometimes you feel you have everything you need and
Sometimes you feel that there's a gaping void.

You yearn for something,
You get it,
You yearn for something else,
And the process goes on until you're on your deathbed.

Yet, it's funny how time heals everything.
The sun rises again,
Life from seeds sprout again,
The flowers bloom again,
You fall in love once again,
You find life worth living again.

Life always finds a way.
It's on you to find the life you want.

DO I ?

Do I want to be rich and famous  or 
Do I want to lead a calm and peaceful life in anonymity?

Do I want to live a long and healthy life by shying away from all the temptations or 
Do I want to live in the moment and enjoy everything I can?

Do I want to lead my life like I have a plan or 
Do I take one day at a time?

Do I want to fulfill all my whims and fancies of the moment or
Do I save for future?

Do I want to be an artist, to express myself or 
Do I want to be a scientist to understand what the nature is trying to express?

Do I get intimidated by the vastness of the world or
Do I realize that I can make a difference?

Do I want to lead a long and boring life or
Do I want a short and eventful life?

Do I want to make my presence felt or 
Do I want to make my absence noticed?

Do I want to fall in love at every chance I get or 
Do I wait until the time comes?

Do I stick to my family throughout my life or 
Do I enjoy the beauty of solitude?

No matter what it takes, all I want to be is happy.

When it Hurts!

              All of us have a thing in common and that is we've all been hurt.Be it for a silly reason or a serious betrayal. A friend,family member,a random stranger or even God can be the reason behind it. Sometimes it can even be you and that would be in the form of  'Guilt'.
              It can't be helped in most of the cases.Even things like not being invited to a party or a friend forgetting your birthday can hurt a lot at times, though eventually you may find it a silly reason to be brooding over or in some cases,things might just worsen with time.Now the thing is that you can't control or predict the behavior of the people around you,so why let them control yours by ruining your day? You can't stop people from doing or saying something that might hurt you, but you can try not to feel bad about it.The first thing to do is to keep your priorities straight.Just give it a thought,is that person really that important to you,to be able to control your feelings? Is he that powerful that he can ruin your day? make you feel low? If the answer is no, then there's nothing to feel bad about. Don't let some x y z hurt you!

               If the person means a lot to you then weigh the situation and decide if it was intentional or not.Most of the times its unintentional from the people who care about you, so the best thing to do is to forgive and forget! If it seems to be intentional,then its a clear indication that you don't mean as much to the person as he does to u,and the best thing to do is just let it go! As you cannot control the way people feel about you, the best thing to do is move on..why care about them when they don't! Don't let it affect your self-esteem.
              If you cannot do that then just think about the people who have bigger and serious problems ..real problems! There are people struggling to even survive on this planet let alone thinking about what others think of them,There are people who have been subjected to injustice by the people in power and sometimes by God himself,There are people who are going through really hard times...when you think about it that way,i bet what you feel would be the last thing to feel bad about! Just remember that there are people who still love and care about you,who are always by your side.So don't be hurt if someone is being mean to you,instead thank them for teaching you a lesson by letting you know the people who are actually there for you,who really care!

                Industrial tour - the best time i had in engnn life,an experience which i'm gonna remember for a real long time!
        They say that the journey u make is more memorable than the destination,but the journey we made in order to actually have the journey was even more memorable!
        We were supposed to start on 26th jan at 10.30 pm for Warangal,but even on the day of departure we weren't sure if we'd be actually going for the tour!That afternoon we were informed that the tour had been canceled due to lack of proper permission and we lost all hope.But after a turn of events,at 9pm we were informed that we were actually going to make it!It did take some time for the news to sink in,but we made it!After packing within a mere 2hrs,we left for warangal in bus(we missed the train for obvious reasons).Even after boarding the bus,it was hard to believe that we were actually going!This was no less than an achievement!
        It was a 27hr long train journey to reach Agra,our first destination.We spent a whole day in train by basically doing nothing!All we did was eat,sleep;play cards,dumb charades,antaakshari and an epic game of ludo which went on for 2 long hours.Music,beautiful scenery outside and friends is all you need to let the time fly!
        The next day,we reached Agra at around 2 am and trust me,it was freezing cold!The first place we visited that day was Taj Mahal.I never really found Taj fascinating until that day.After being there in person,i thought "No wonder its a wonder!".The beauty of taj mahal was phenomenal.It's construction,the foresight of the people who constructed it at that period,with the then available resources and technology left me awed.It was a masterpiece of civil engineering! The expertise and the detailed work done was marvelous.In the evening we visited Fathepur-sikhri and other places and left for Delhi,our next stop.


        We visited Mathura on the way to Delhi.The divine atmosphere of Mathura raised our spirits and made our day.We reached Delhi and visited Akshardham temple whose beauty cannot be described in words!
One has to visit it to understand this!After visiting other places in Delhi,we left for Shimla.
        We visited Khufri in Shimla which was an unforgettable experience.The place was covered with snow.Horse riding to the top of the hill was amazing and the return journey was scary(it was all dark with the only source of light being the crescent moon).It was very adventurous and exhilarating with nature's beauty at its best.The snow was shining in the moon light and the ride on horse made it even more breath-taking!
We had a great day and the whole thing was exhausting,but this didn't deter us from attending the DJ that night :P!
        The next day,we set out for Kullu for river rafting in river Vyas.The river water was ice cold and every time u touched it,it would send a stinging pain down your skin.It was a thrilling experience.The water was super cold and could numb one's sense and here we were fully drenched ,struggling to feel our hands and legs!After an hour for rafting,we made it to the bank of the river and i had to look down at my feet to find one of my slippers missing!I didn't sense losing it :P as it was hard to feel any sensation! We had camp-fire after that and i had 'meri kullu wali maggi' there and it was unforgettable!
       Our next stop was Manali.The place can be described by a single word and that is 'BEAUTIFUL'! Every sight was scenic,there was creamy,foamy snow everywhere you laid eyes on! The yak ride,traditional dressing,ride on snow-bike,tyre ride were the highlights there.It was freaking cold at snow point,it was hard to move around in those boots but that didn't deter us from having a full fledged snow fight!It was a lovely place!
       Amritsar was the final destination.We visited Wagah border but missed the parade.Golden temple was very beautiful,the atmosphere there made one feel at peace.This visit was followed by a bus journey to Delhi the next day.The whole journey was filled with fun,frolic and laughter.From Delhi,we had a train journey to hyd,another 27 hr journey but we hardly realized the time fly.That was the end of it, a memorable trip because of all the drama,the effort for making it happen,the fun,the places and the people! And we will always cherish these memories! :)

I'm not perfect,nobody is
I'm just a girl,with a thousand little dreams!
Not exceptionally gorgeous,
Nor i am a gifted genius,
ORDINARY is the word,
Not hard to find in this world!
I'm a friend tough to make,
Friendship,you'd never wanna break!
Whatever i do,i put my heart and soul in it,
Not the person who gets satisfied by just doing 'it' !
Not so expressive,
Can never stand injustice!
Can't stand mean and filthy liars,
No matter how sweet their lies appears!
Not the one who enjoys hurting people,
Only to end up hurting myself!
Well that is the way i am,
Better accept it as soon as u can!

            I hate attention,any sort of attention - from people wishing me on my bday to speaking in front of an audience.I never knew speaking in front of people would be so difficult until i went through the experience.
           It all started on Teachers' day celebrations in school.I was in 6th standard and had to give a speech in Hindi in front of our whole school strength(around 2500+ students).Obviously there was a selection round for selecting the right student to give the speech among class 6 students and i don't remember how i got selected.I prepared really hard for it - At home,my bed was the stage and my mom n siss were the audience and I did pretty well in front of them :P.I was really looking forward to the D-day but at the same time was little nervous.The day came,i dressed up in a cute blue frock and was ready to give a wonderful speech.They announced my name on the mike and i walked to the center of the stage-my legs shivering.I was supposed to recite the speech but the moment i saw the huge crowd waiting for me to speak and leave the stage asap,my mind went blank- i couldn't remember a thing.And u know how school children are-they hate listening to speeches..only dance performances are enjoyed..it was the same with me but now i was at the receiving end.I was all the more nervous because of the lovely,encouraging audience.Luckily i had the speech written on a paper and what i did was simple- read the whole thing from the paper and left the stage asap.Clearly, i had disappointed my teacher ( one of my favs :( ).But things could've been worse if i didn't have that paper that time.At least i gave the speech (rather read it) and it wasn't that bad.
            I was determined to get over this stage fright.I took part in an elocution competition which was again in hindi with topic -'MAA'.It was a low key competition.My mother had written the matter,which i recited along with a poem which my mom had written for her mom.It was a beautiful poem and i think that was the reason i actually won the competition.Again,it wasn't easy to speak in front of ppl,but the whole time that i was speaking,i didn't look at even a single person.It wasn't the right thing to do but it was ok(i was 11 then).This competition surely boosted my confidence.

           Since then,i have had many number of opportunities to speak on stage but even now going on stage freaks me out.Sometimes its hard to believe that i spoke so many times on stage as a member of NGC,played the main role in a drama(on the occasion of 125 yrs celebrations of our school) and that i was able to influence my fellow high-school mates through my speech and become the Vice Head Girl of school!

          Even in Engnn college,there was this public speaking thing in 1-1 which surely freaked out many of my classmates including me.I mean,after 2 yrs of mental torture in intermediate clg,we had an opportunity to speak in public on a given topic..but things went well.Then there was this EMTL seminar in 2-2(my luck was really bad that day...got a golden opportunity of giving a seminar on PDC too).Seriously,speaking on a topic is one thing..but Teaching - that was really something! I gave it my best shot and i guess my classmates understood what i was doing there!

        Even after having a good amount of experience in public-speaking,whenever i'm on-stage i get butterflies in my stomach...Hopefully things will always fall into the right place as they have till now..:)

The most common relationship between people around the world - FRIENDSHIP.Few people take it as a synonym for 'just knowing a person' before considering the very meaning of the word.When someone asks u about a person u know..u just say "He/She is a friend of mine" without considering the fact that if u r really 'friends' or not.Not that there is anything wrong in that,but how many of us actually do justice to the so called 'friendship' ? I believe knowing someone doesn't make him/her ur friend.Friendship is more than just knowing someone.Its a competitive world,survival of the fittest.Most people believe in 'first me then others(includes so called friends)' theory.Ive seen people who have a group,who are together the whole time in clg/school but are not really friends.They are least bothered about what's happening with others-forget about helping each other out.Friendship is kind of a formality for them.... such a pity!

You don't have rules/regulations or do's and do not's in friendship.But then its something which connects two individuals.No one needs to tell u what to do for a person...if ur true friends u'll do it yourself!Friendship is when silence is comfortable between two individuals.Its a wonderful feeling that there's someone who cares for u,prays for ur well being,wants u to be happy and expects nothing in return.There is no room for selfishness and jealousy in friendship.Friends are those who can bring a smile on to ur face,who stand by ur side when others leave u,who trust their lives with you!

It's hard to find good friends and lucky are those who have true friends! Give and take is business-not friendship! Its a relationship based on honesty,truth and trust.Its always great to have good friends but very hard to find them.People who leave you when ur in trouble aren't really ur friends.Though encountering such people is a painful experience,it makes one strong and a better person.It brings a better sense of judging people.Recently i've had a very bad experience with 'so called friends' , but its been a learning experience and im a better person now.I believe calling such people ur friends is an injustice to the word 'friendship' and so next time if someone asks u if a particular someone is ur 'friend' just think before u answer...

" Friends are like melons; shall I tell you why? To find one good you must one hundred try." -- Claude Mermet
