Get what you want!

This post is written as a part of ‘ All that Matters ‘ contest at in association with INK Live 2013 . We all once in our lifetime, face situations that are beyond our control. At that time, we are rendered useless as we couldn't take control of the situation at hand and therefore succumb to it. This usually happens when we want to fulfill our dreams but somehow are a victim of circumstances around us. Every person on this planet has some goals. Some achieve them by being selfish, some by being selfless. No matter how, everyone wants results to be delivered. In the office, Managers want their subordinates to complete work in time. If not completed, then they might not get an increment. Progress always takes time and that definitely depends on how much effort one has put into it. For some, getting a Mercedes is a dream comes true while on the other hand a poor may cheer up if he gets petty cash to be able to feed their family twice in a day. It all depends

Exams-end of the world or a new beginning?

Exams! One thing which always causes everybody's mind to crumple. Those sleepless nights were a delight for some while on the other hand, a haunting for others. The mugging up of the notes which just seem to give me goosebumps still are the most hateful of all. I have seen people, especially girls trying to get through that freaking biological names of different body parts as well as medicine salts.   Moreover, the pressure from the parents kills the brain cells. Putting some ice on the cake, peer pressure, making fun of the one who hasn't studied a particular topic  but they act like the same "yaar, ye topic to aana hi aana hai paper me, tu to gaya." ("Dude, this topic will be coming in the exam for sure, you are going to fail man!"). That mentality of teasing makes me smile today but at that time, I seriously felt like leaving the exam. Luckily I have cleared all my examinations and I did well :). There also are some friends who make

Mathematics-horror or a delight?

Do you all remember the scariest thing in your childhood? The thing you ran away from in school? This of course is not about any horrifying insect or any other that same old horror movies but it has to do something with a subject which we all studied in school. By now I am sure that 80% of you all have guessed it right, Mathematics! The subject which was not less than a nightmare in most of our lives and still is. The numbers playing hide and seek in dreams. The calculus problems seem to fly high above our heads. We all at some point of our lives, I am sure have hated maths. It is a subject which is simplest for some while being difficult to near impossible for some! I will share my story on the same. Like you all, I was also afraid of this subject. I hated it like hell until one day, I fell in love with it. We always try to look the things as per the people's perspective rather than applying our own brains. But as a child no one knows how exactly the problem can be


Image source: here I looked closely in the mirror Intrigued by the reflection The fine lines on the forehead Struggle is all they reveal So young yet so old Someone else I believe I see Recollecting the memories hidden deep Good or bad whatever, nothing I feel The nerves got damaged I guess No pain, only numbness is there All the moves I tried, rubbed the eyes Even though I knew I was not dreaming The person from the other side stared at me No regrets, no sorrow in the eyes I saw No the mirror couldn't be wrong It reflects on its own, not by anyone's behest!

And I blushed!

I still remember the day. How can I forget the day which meant everything to me? The sun shone brighter than all other days. As usual, I was getting ready for the class. I hated accounts. The formulae seemed  a distant dream in which I was lost forever. Ms. Sheetal, our Accounts teacher was pretty, happy go lucky woman. She always had a smile on her face, even when she was scolding her students which included me as well. She was young, maybe in her late twenties. I stepped in the campus, thinking of joining my friends the canteen instead, but then I realized that my attendance was already short. The fear of getting debarred, the vision of getting scolding from my father was enough for me to choose the other path. I straight away headed to the class without thinking twice. I was already late and the door was about to get closed but I strode as fast as I could and barged into the class. Fishing out a place to sit across around seventy students was a challenge. But i was lucky i

Times flow by!

Image source: here The times flow by like the clouds With you left unaware of the pace Eating away your thoughts, you go on Even if it is leading to only one thing, disgrace! The heavenly aroma, that flickering candle The beaming of the sky, you fail to enjoy Just a reminder for you of the chores Which can transform sorrow to joy The hours sweep so slow, unaware The impeccable tune of the wind Steering clear leaving you perplexed With a lightning bolt, the darkness signed The mark left up there will stay adhered Reminding you of the best times you missed Fading away the darkness of the soul You will feel as if it's the light you just kissed! 

Indigenous to this world...

Image source: here Indigenous to this world, so heavenly The oath that one has to stay bind to Has been made to fade away so cleverly Not too fast, nor too slow, but gradually hitherto Who will be the benefactor, who will be the antagonist? Slowly decreasing the charm by being so phony  Gain some, lose some, one should act like a protagonist The times have gone away when one tried to be crony    The fact remains as it is, mortality is the truth Trying too hard to push yourself, giving the best Some succeed in living, some give up their youth But they fail to keep in mind, they are better than the rest Wrapping one's mind in the best memories, try to laugh endlessly Some rest is needed to recover better, wish you knew Don't forget, you are indigenous to this world, so heavenly Stick to the oath you have taken to stay always bound to!

Trust yourself, the world will follow!

Trust yourself, you can achieve what you can't even think of. Image credit: here Most people laugh at you not because you are wrong but 99% of them are insecure about the thing you will be able to achieve and that will be out of their thinking. -Saurabh Chawla

When you say nothing at all...

Image source: here The time goes by, with countless hours Staying adhered to your chores, is all what you do  Always wanting to rise, preventing that free fall The time when you say nothing at all...  From the aspiration to the exaggeration  Trying to conceal the truth hiding beneath The disguise that you all know stands tall The time when you say nothing at all... Incessant ramblings, never leading to a conclusion All the way down when you travel to a delusion You succumb to the immorality, keep rolling the ball The time when you say nothing at all... Turning towards the past memories, all is history  Wondering at the things that have passed, uncontrolled Crossed all boundaries, wish you could have prevented the fall That is the time when you say nothing at all...    This post is a part of  Write Over the Weekend , an initiative for  Indian Bloggers  by BlogAdda Click here to read From dawn till dusk...  


Image source: here Turning your back towards the damped soul Will only lead to the feeling of betrayal From the hell or heaven it might have returned Unknown is the source, need to make it whole Traveled a million miles, distance unprecedented It is in search of it's identity, whether created or gifted To know the original address where it belongs to Otherwise it will be forced to be dented From deep down somewhere, it is screaming Maybe in noise, it is often left unheard No, hearing it's cries only is not enough  But you have to prevent the weaning To love, to care, to nurture the inner desires Is all that is needed to be in an equilibrium Sometimes there needs to be an obsession To stop the thirsty soul, before it retires!
