Life has many things to offer .. sometimes we forget to see where they are and how to get them .. look, see, and you will get ..

रंजिश ही सही दिल ही दुखाने के लिए आ...

This is one of my fav collection from My old diary.....By Ahmed Faraz. Also a Ghazal Sung By Runa Laila & Mehndi Hasan.That’s great poetry !


"रंजिश ही सही दिल ही दुखाने के लिए आ
आ फिर से मुझे छोड़ के जाने के लिए आ ।


पहले से मरासिम न सही फिर भी कभी तो
रस्म-ओ-रह-ए-दुनिया ही निभाने के लिए आ ।


किस किस को बताएँगे जुदाई का सबब हम
तू मुझ से ख़फ़ा है तो ज़माने के लिए आ ।


कुछ तो मेरे पिन्दार-ए-मुहब्बत का भरम रख
तू भी तो कभी मुझ को मनाने के लिए आ ।


एक उम्र से हूँ लज़्ज़त-ए-गिरिया से भी महरूम
ऐ राहत-ए-जाँ मुझ को रुलाने के लिए आ ।


जैसे तुम्हे आते हैं न आने के बहाने
वैसे ही किसी रोज़ ना जाने के लिए आ

माना की मुहोब्बत को छुपाना भी हैं मुहब्बत
चुपके से किसी रोज़ जताने के लिए आ


अब तक दिल-ए-ख़ुश’फ़हम को तुझ से हैं उम्मीदें
ये आख़िरी शम्में भी बुझाने के लिए आ ।            "
 
 
रंजिश=enmity,मरासिम=agreements/relationships, रस्म-ओ-रह-ए-दुनिया=customs and traditions of the society,सबब=reason, ख़फ़ा=angry,पिन्दार=pride,लज़्ज़त-ए-गिरिया=taste of sadness/tears, महरूम=devoid of, राहत-ए-जाँ=peace of life,दिल-ए-ख़ुश’फ़हम=optimistic heart, शम्में=candles

Tere Khushboo Mein Base Khat......

After so many days I am listening this Gazal it's very close to my heart.....love these lyrics.

tere khushboo mein base khat main jalaata kaise

pyaar mein dube huye khat main jalaata kaise
tere haathon ke likhe khat main jalaata kaise

tune duniya ki nigaahon se jo bachkar likhe
saal ha saal mere naam baraabar likhe
kabhi din mein toh kabhi raat ko uthkar likhe
tere khushbu mein base

jinaka har labj mujhe yaad tha paani ki tarah
yaad themujhako jo paigaamein jubaani ki tarah
mujhako pyaare thejo anmol nishaani ke tarah
tere khushboo mein base khat main jalaata kaise
pyaar mein dube huye khat main jalaata kaise
tere haathon ke likhe khat main jalaata kaise
tere khat aaj main ganga mein baha loon - (2)
aag behate huye paani mein laga aaya hoon

They Love Me...

I do not know why I am writing this today. Today is no mother’s day or father’s day nor its their birthday. Nothing special happened today. Its just one of my usual working days.



Still suddenly I found myself thinking of those eyes. Eyes of my mom , when she saw me in my wedding attire. She held my cheeks and said that I look beautiful. But her eyes said much more. My mother , who never expresses her emotions in words. We have never heard her saying that she loves us or that she is worried about us. We have seen her like this forever and so we don’t really mind it. But that day , I saw a pair of eyes full of emotions , happiness and satisfaction.


Also that day I noticed someone who looked more beautiful than the bride. Yeah , my mom. She looked really pretty at my wedding. She got lots of compliments too. She attributed it to her makeup and hair do. Since she never goes to parlour , she said that the change made her look different and pretty. I don’t agree , she looked beautiful for she was happy, may be happier than the bride. And on my sis wedding as well…she was looking stunning. Although she doesn’t take more than 15-20 mins. And I went parlor….still she was looking best…again best than the bride. Same my sis felt.


Thinking about those eyes , I also remembered about a man , who told me that he is blessed that he has a daughter like me and like my sis. He always appreciate always says he feels proud of me.I just could not believe my ears. I have given him enough troubles. I would have disowned a daughter like myself perhaps , I thought. Still this man says he is blessed ??


What did God make parents off ? Will I be so giving/forgiving ever ? Can I be a good parent ?

Ajeeb lagti hai sham kabhi kabhi

Ajeeb lagti hai sham kabhi kabhi

Zindagi lagti hai bejaan kabhi kabhi
Samjh Aaye tou humen bhi batana
Ke kyun karti hain yaden pareshan kabhi kabhi.

Nazar badal ke dekho, nazaare badal jaayenge

Nazar badal ke dekho, nazaare badal jaayenge,

Soch badal ke dekho, sitare badal jaayenge,
Kashtiyan badalne ki kya zaroorat,
Dishayein badal ke dekho, Kinare badal jaayenge.

Impression

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Why wedding ring should put on the fourth finger ??...

Really interesting thing.

Why wedding ring should put on the fourth finger??
Pls follow the below step, really god make this a miracle (this is from a Chinese excerpt)
Firstly, show your palm, centre finger bend and put together back to back
Secondly, the rest 4 fingers tips to tips
Games begin, follow the below arrangement, 5 finger but only 1 pair can split.


Try to open your thumb, the thumb represent parents, it can be open because all human does go thru sick and dead. Which are our parents will leave us one day


Please close up your thumb, then open your second finger, the finger represent brothers and sisters, they do have their own family which is too they will leave us too

Now close up your second finger, open up your little finer, this represent your children. Sooner or later they too will leave us for they got they own living to live

Nevertheless, close up your little finer, try to open your fourth finger which we put our wedding ring; you will be surprise to find that it cannot be open at all. Because it represent husband and wife, this whole life you will be attach to each other.

Real love will stick together ever and forever

Thumb represents parents
Second finger represent brothers & sisters
Centre finger represent own self
Fourth finger represent your partner
Last finger represent your children





Facts About Dreams





  • Within 5 minutes of waking half of your dream is forgotten. Within 10, 90% is gone.
  • People who became blind after birth can see images in their dreams. People who are born blind do not see any images, but have dreams equally vivid involving their other senses of sound, smell, touch and emotion.
  • Every human being dreams (except in cases of extreme psychological disorder). If you think you are not dreaming you just forget your dreams. 

  • Our mind is not inventing faces in our dreams we see real faces of real people that we have seen during our life but may not know or remember. We have all seen hundreds of thousands of faces throughout our lives, so we have an endless supply of characters for our brain to utilize during our dreams.
  • A full 12% of sighted people dream exclusively in black and white. The remaining number dream in full color. Studies from 1915 through to the 1950s maintained that the majority of dreams were in black and white, but these results began to change in the 1960s. Today only 4.4% of the dreams of under-25 year-olds are in black and white. Recent research has suggested that those changing results may be linked to the switch from black-and-white film and TV to color media.

  • If you dream about some particular subject it is not often that the dream is about that. Dreams speak in a deeply symbolic language. Whatever symbol your dream picks on it is most unlikely to be a symbol for itself.
  • The most common emotion experienced in dreams is anxiety. Negative emotions are more common than positive ones.
  • On average you can dream anywhere from one or two hours every night.
  • Studies have been done on many different animals, and they all show the same brain waves during dreaming sleep as humans. Watch a dog sleeping sometime. The paws move like they are running and they make yipping sounds as if they are chasing something in a dream.
  • Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep is a normal stage of sleep characterized by rapid movements of the eyes. REM sleep in adult humans typically occupies 20-25% of total sleep, about 90-120 minutes of a nights sleep.


    During REM sleep the body is paralyzed by a mechanism in the brain in order to prevent the movements which occur in the dream from causing the physical body to move. However, it is possible for this mechanism to be triggered before, during, or after normal sleep while the brain awakens.
  • Our mind interprets the external stimuli that our senses are bombarded with when we are asleep and make them a part of our dreams. This means that sometimes in our dreams we hear a sound from reality and incorporate it in a way. For example you may be dreaming that you are in a concert while your brother is playing a guitar during your sleep.
  • Men tend to dream more about other men. Around 70% of the characters in a man's dream are other men. On the other hand, a woman's dream contains almost an equal number of men and women. Aside from that, men generally have more aggressive emotions in their dreams than the female lot.
  • Results of several surveys across large population sets indicate that between 18% and 38% of people have experienced at least one precognitive dream and 70% have experienced Deja-vu.The percentage of persons that believe precognitive dreaming is possible is even higher – ranging from 63% to 98%.


    *Precognition, also called future sight, refers to perception that involves the acquisition of future information that cannot be deduced from presently available and normally acquired sense-based information.


Too Much Rain...

I see I'm not the only one this miserable weather is making lethargic. I just watched a fly walk across the room.......It's been 5 days weather is still cloudy and dark...too much rain............and so much moist at home..... Suraj uncle is sleeping from last 5 days......

aj badal kalay gehray hain,

aaj chand pay lakhon pehray hain,
Kuch tukray tumhari yaadon k,
bari dair say dil mein thehray hain,

Thought Court...

Few days back someone was trying t o explain me that its so difficult for any one of us to control our own behavior so how can we even think of controlling anyone else’s. I didn’t quite understand it then…



But just today I realized its so true.. it is so difficult for me to control my own behavior! And hence, its so unfair of me to try and control someone else’s behavior and expecting that person to behave in a particular way. I must learn to control my own brain wave… and I guess everything else will follow!

This Too Shall Pass

I got a very amazing email.....worth reading and worth sharing..

Money has no memory. Experience has. You will never know what the total cost of your education was, but for a lifetime you will recall and relive the memories of schools and colleges. Few years from now, you will forget the amount you paid to settle the hospitalisation bill, but will ever cherish having saved your mother’s life or the life you get to live with the just born. You won’t remember the cost of your honeymoon, but to the last breath remember the experiences of the bliss of togetherness. Money has no memory. Experience has.



Good times and bad times, times of prosperity and times of poverty, times when the future looked so secure and times when you didn’t know from where the tomorrow will come… life has been in one way or the other a roller-coaster ride for everyone. Beyond all that abundance and beyond all that deprivation, what remains is the memory of experiences. Sometimes the wallet was full… sometimes even the pocket was empty. There was enough and you still had reasons to frown. There wasn’t enough and you still had reasons to smile. Today, you can look back with tears of gratitude for all the times you had laughed together, and also look back with a smile at all the times you cried alone. All in all, life filled you with experiences to create a history of your own self, and you alone can remember them all.


The first time you balanced yourself on your cycle without support…


The first time she said ‘yes’ and it was two years since you proposed…


The first cry… the first steps… the first word… the first kiss… all of your child…


The first gift you bought for your parents and the first gift your daughter gave you…


The first award… the first public appreciation… the first stage performance…


And the list is endless… Experiences, with timeless memory…


No denying that anything that’s material cost money, but the fact remains the cost of the experience will be forgotten, but the experience never.


So, what if it’s economic recession? Let it be, but let there not be a recession to the quality of your life. You can still take your parents, if not on a pilgrimage, at least to the local temple. You can still play with your children, if not on an international holiday, at least in the local park. It doesn’t cost money to lie down or to take a loved one onto your lap. Nice time to train the employees, create leadership availability and be ready for the wonderful times when they arrive. Hey! Aspects like your health, knowledge development and spiritual growth are not economy dependent.


Time will pass… economy will revive… currency will soon be in current… and in all this, I don’t want you to look back and realise you did nothing but stayed in gloom. Recession can make you lose out on money. Let it not make you lose out on experiences… If you are not happy with what you have, no matter how much more you have, you will still not be happy.


Make a statement with the way you live your life: How I feel has nothing to do with how much I have.

Harsh But True



There is a time when you think that you are having the best moments of your life and life can't get any better then this and then there is a time when you wish you never lived those moments!! You wish you can erase those moments and memories from your life.

Umeed Se Saje Zindagi

A promotional poem by Zee TV...


Ummed ke bandh lifaafe mein,
             Ek timtimaata sapna hai.
Baadal ki pichkaari lekar,
             Chhand sitaare rangna hai.
Aasmaan ki iss kitaab par,
             Naam bas apna likhna hai.

Marriage & Freedom...



One my close friend is getting married soon and his FB status saying "just few days of my bachelorhood and freedom". And I was started thinking...Is Marriage Really the End of Freedom?

But what is freedom?

Is it the freedom to do whatever you want whenever you want?


Is it the freedom of having the ability to be romantically involved with whomever you want whenever you want?

Is it the freedom of having no responsibilities and only worrying about yourself?

Yes it's true any relationship comes with responsibilities...One has to accept that marriage certainly comes with boundaries and terms and conditions...But that's fine it's a part of life.I mean we can't be overdosed of freedom. Some one very truly said "When you got nothing, you got nothing to lose.” and ”Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.”

What I feel you will loose your freedom in your relationship (especially in marriage) when you loose your individuality.Marriage, to me, certainly does not mean losing one’s individuality. You still are the person you were, before you got married. If I had to completely change myself, just to keep my spouse happy, then I doubt if my marriage will go long way.

Many people I know, accommodate their spouses demands (whether reasonable or not) for the sake of peace in the house.When I look around me, most people who have been married more than 3-4 years or so, feel stuck . But they ‘adjust’ and ‘compromise’ and carry on. (Not just the women, the guys too). Sometimes the issues in a marriage are not ‘big enough’ for a divorce. And at times it's just impossible that those issues can resolve by talking.....Mostly couples ‘adjust’ because there are kids involved, societal pressure involved, ageing parents involved. Some might argue that marriage itself means ‘adjustment’ and 'compromise.'

Many couples share their email accounts and their passwords too. The spouse is ‘not allowed’ to have friends of the opposite sex. If a friend is of the opposite sex, then they cannot call you, text you, mail you, unless the spouse also reads it. ......Too much at times.........few days back I was online very late and chatting with one my old classmate and he asked me "you are talking to me too late " your hubby will get annoyed". for him its was really a big deal............I told him don't worry....

Then I realized I am fortunate enough....I have my own set of friends (both male and female) and he has his own....yes we do share our passwords but we really never bothered to check each other's email or text untill unless necessary...And I think this is healthy and essential too.

It all depends how you make it work for you.And personally, I feel, that just like marriage, it applies to everything in life. And personally, I feel, that just like marriage, it applies to everything in life. At times we still find issues (like me)  - then work on your relationship. Just like you would work on other things. I had to work on making my hubby understand many many things - and our marriage is working coz both him and I are reforming ourselves as we go along, without having to compromise or sacrifice much. We still maintain our identities and are able to be happy with each other. Personal email and bank account are a must. Friends of opposite sex are a must. Complete trust in your partner is a must. For me, my personal space is a must, as much as I love my husband. I need my friends, my time with them and it is indeed important to me.


If things working for you and you are happy and enjoying your life it's fine.

If not then might be it's time to think about it?

Shopping Therapy...

Ain’t it? After all summer and now a beautiful weather fully rainy season obviously a girl needs to shop with the change in weather! Yeah, so what it the weather hardly changes in Mumbai and so what if most of the time it is hot and humid as ever.

The wardrobe needs a bit of revamping every now and then. :) And Home decoration, kitchen utility also…list is endless at times.

For me shopping does work as a stress buster at most of the time, and it doesn’t matter for whom I am buying stuff. Just the act of buying makes me feel better. But hold on I am not a Shopaholic….. even If I will buy a pair of earrings I will feel happy. I enjoy in buying small at times silly stuff .Yeah I am crazy like that. What about you? Do you love to shop?

It's Holiday Time

Pattya-Bangkok was amazing!! 4 days of undefined luxury, relaxation and bliss.

And all that we did was, lie in the pool or beside it and sip on some pretty looking drinks. And then hit the beach, water sports and do pretty much the same. Throw in some wonderful Thai massages on daily basis and some exotic food.


What more can a girl ask for? Nothing, absolutely nothing.


Our stay was at All Seasons Pattaya. The location of this hotel is a major positive aspect, i.e. walk able to the beach and market places. Complementary buffet breakfast at the hotel is just awesome.Pattaya is just 2 hours drive from Bangkok.


Pattaya is a heaven for non-vegetarians; you get all kinds of sea food, chicken and pork at the road side eateries. A good thing is that you also get Indian food at many places.


Don't forget to eat Thai Mango Rice.....its just awesome.


It’s a sticky rice bit sweet and they put coconut milk on it and then served with Mango....I just loved it.In Pattya its available everywhere...initially I was bit hesitated to have it then we bought it last day only and I found I was a fooled not to trying it....and then I couldn’t get it in Bangkok that kind of quality....but finally I got it at Bangkok Airport and I paid 150 BAHT for it...and in Pattya it was only for 50BAHT.well....I can't resist to have it :-)


Now coming to the night life the famous walking street is good, don’t worry you wont be hassled by anyone if you want to enjoy you need to approach them. There are a lot of pubs and disc to enjoy too And Gay club, lesbian club. And so many adult shows....they will give you even a menu card. You can't say anything other than OH MY GOD!


If you are going with your family then better avoid the beach road after the evening as prostitution is an open affair there.


You have to go with an open mind there only then you can enjoy.


Here We say we are very cultured not very open to all this but I found Indians were everywhere, watching all these show and also they are the ones that volunteer for the shows, if we say its against Indian culture we are only acting like a hypocrite.


But yes we enjoyed a lot...Thx to My sis and her dear Hubby...they also joined there so it was a super hit holiday,so many photographs,a beautiful tan and thodi bahut shopping....


And the wait begins for the next one. And I have a feeling it will be Hong Kong this time. In a year or so....lets see...

Raaston mein kho gaya hai mitra............

Very touching lyrics...

Raaston mein kho gaya hai mitra

Ajnabi kyon ho gaya hai mitra (mitra)
Kuch toh kami hai saavan
Saavan sa kyon na laagey mitra, mitra


Shaamo sehar kyun mann ka
Aangan yeh soona laagey mitra, mitra
Dhoop leke jo gaya hai mitra
Ajnabi kyon ho gaya hai mitra

Yaara kaaye yaara
Kaise jaane yaara bichhda
Yaara kaaye yaara
Sang chain saara bichhda
Dil ke taaron mein, kyon hazaaron mein
Dard jaage hain
Humne baandhe jo, reshmi saare
Tootey dhaage hain
Phir haathon yeh harjaana hai
Humko adaa kar jaana hai
Sirf yaadon ka taana baana hai
Kya chhupaana hai
Haale dil jo ho gaya hai mitra (mitra)
Ajnabi kyon ho gaya hai mitra (mitra)


Kuch toh kami hai saavan
Saavan sa kyon na laagey mitra, mitra
Shaamo sehar kyun mann ka
Aangan yeh soona laagey mitra, mitra
Dhoop leke jo gaya hai mitra (mitra)
Ajnabi kyon ho gaya hai mitra




Yaara kaaye yaara
Kaise jaane yaara bichhda
Yaara kaaye yaara
Sang chain saara bichhda

Tittle-Tattle

 A small wave in the ocean laments "Poor me. Other waves are so great in size, yet I am so small. Other waves can travel so fast, yet I am so inferior." Another wave replies "This is because you do not know your true being, so you think you are suffering. A wave is your temporary phenomenon. In actual fact, you are water. When you realize that your true being is water, you will no longer be troubled by your physical form, and therefore will no longer suffer."

So Called Friendship & Relationship ....

Friends are always nice to have around.No man is an island and no one can live alone on their own no matter how isolated they have placed themselves to be.
I have friends, but not many.In fact I would say my closet bunch just few. You do not need alot of friends just to keep you company, just a few would do.Few friends to whom you just hang around and have dinner here and there.


Yet,how does it feel when you have realised you have been taken for granted? Or you realised there is so much emptiness in these so called friendship. Guess that wont come from those who are closest to me, but how about those who are....not that close and yet still hang around you when they need you?


I been thinking a lot about this from last few days. I realised that though I have done certain good to others, they give me a feeling that what I did is something what I should do and anything expected of them is a ZERO.

Spending so much time and effort, many would say one should not expect any reward. Yet I will say I am normal human being, you cant help but wonder how come the treatment you get is so different and even insignificant when compare to what others have received when others don't seem to have done much more.



The counter argument here would have been: quality over quantity.


Might be I am too sensitive,or may be I am too emotional. Or May be I am not strong enough.May be I get attached with people very easily.


I m learning to let go of these negative feelings. I m learning not to expect anything from the things I have done for others. But it does gets very tired when you seem to have done so much, yet you do not get to taste the fruit of your labour. And most important nobody even remember those good things which you have done so far.
Its time to move on. I guess its pointless to try to stay around some when they just seem to keep you at arm's length when you have been around for so long.


I am getting very tired.



Good Life Bad Life...

I am confused....people say I have a very good life few says I have a very bad life.

At times when things doesn't work out or we down ....we always crib that we have a bad life.And at times  we feel how lucky we are.. we have a very good life............

I want to know what is the Definition of a bad life and a good life??????
 
Or its just a mind set.........A big question?

I was Alive when India won Cricket World Cup 2011 :)


It's India won the World Cup 2011 by defeating Sri Lanka by six wickets. A wonderful moment for all Indians.
We were right there screaming our lungs out. When Dhoni hit that 6, I almost collapsed in joy. That moment will remain one of the most proud moments in my and most of our life for a long long time to come. Many many years down the line we will tell our grand kids...how history was being created.


I really feel happy that I was there when History was being written. I am intensely aware of the fact that I don't get the technicalities of the game, unlike a true fan. But so what …it was the moment of joy and we celebrated it in our own way.

We went on drive after this glory and got stuck at traffic around 1am midnight…. People on roads..be it boys or gals or families…everyone got crazy..Indian flags everywhere..dhols..dancing..fire crackers..happiness on every face...we were also joined that lovely crowd. How did you celebrate the legendary moment in Indian cricket?

It indeed was a one of the most cherishable moment and will remain forever !! Proud of the Indian Team. This was for Sachin And was for everyone who wanted India to win more than anything else.
This gives immense satisfaction that we are now the real champions.

Why I Disappeared

I am alive..............Couldn't get time to blog for quite some time now.....was so much busy...office,then on a holiday.....so many things are going in my mind..Now really confused from where to start and what to write first .
Lot more is happening around. Want to write about my trip, friends, people around me and about world cup and many more.
I hope I will manage to get some time to write all my thoughts soon...

Thinking Language....

आज मुझे जल्दी जागना है.आज शौपिंग करना है.......कल क्या कुक करना है....वीकेंड प्लानिंग .....ऑफिस का काम.....फसबूक पर फोटोस अपलोड करना है.......

All sorts of thoughts going on in my mind. And they all speak the same language - Hindi.

I met people who speak various languages, it is surprising to know that we all talk to ourselves and think in only one language. The language we are most comfortable in. The language that we can express the most in. And the language that comes naturally to us.


For me it's hindi all the way. No matter how fluent I am in English or my mother tongue, or that my first instance of initiating a conversation is in English, I am always thinking in Hindi.Yes these days its king of Hinglish....but yes I will say more in hindi.


What is your "thinking" language?

Magic Called Love

It was yet another tiring day at work. Had been slogging since 8 in the morning. Had a severe back ache and this pain more than making me uncomfortable was also giving me jitters. I want to take leave but in no way I could afford this.

I have no choice rather than to take pain killer and do my work………..I am a person who always avoids taking medicine……but….

Finally left office at around 8pm only to be welcomed by the most horrifiedd packed local train. I can’t even enter it and I missed it…………again need to wait at least 15 min for another local.

In Delhi I always travelled by my office cab . I have never taken local bus even. But in Mumbai cab culture is only with BPOs and that too in limited areas.

And at times it’s really tiring. I seriously hats off to Mumbaiite especially ladies who travel daily very long way by these too packed locals…….I take only half an hour to reach my office…..But packed crowded trains…really horrified…everyday you have to fight to enter in it and need to make space for you just standing space.

I really don’t remember when last time I was sitting in local. Everyday I have to stand up that too at door only………….
Well… I was almost ready to collapse on the nearest surface which deserved me. Hungry, irritated, tired, over worked and in pain.Now that’s a life I never thought I would have when I was doing that MBA.Or when I was working in Delhi.


Well..Let me stop about life hurdles here. What I wanted to write about was quite something else. Yes, so it was 9.15 pm and I was almost nearing home and it was raining like the clouds would never get a chance again. Ritesh daily picks me up from the station even though it’s just a 5 minutes away to home but he doesn’t want his dear wife to walk (and neither does the wife ;) ). So there he was to take me home.

The moment I saw him, with that smile on his face and that warmth in his eyes I was a different person. There goes my anger, my stress and the fact that I was so tired. Now this is what I call love and I am blessed to have him. That serene tranquillity that overwhelms me every time I meet him is the reason I can sustain my work. This is the magic of love. And that’s my elixir to life.

This picture says a lot :-))

An Orange is Appealing!

I found this preshool song on a website and found it worth sharing



An orange is appealing
But you can't eat the peeling
So you better peel the peeling away!

Very Funny

I can't stop laughing....

Collection From My Old Diary

A Brilliant Interview

I got this mail and I found it worth sharing.

Some, rather most organizations reject his CV today because he has changed jobs frequently (10 in 14 years). My friend, the ˜job hopper™ (referred here as Mr. JH), does not mind it. well he does not need to mind it at all. Having worked full-time with 10 employer companies in just 14 years gives Mr. JH the relaxing edge that most of the ˜company loyal™ employees are struggling for today. Today, Mr. JH too is laid off like some other 14-15 year experienced guys “ the difference being the latter have just worked in 2-3 organizations in the same number of years. Here are the excerpts of an interview with Mr. JH:

Yeh Saali Zindagi

Zindagi Pe Tera Mera, Kis Ka Na Zor Hai
Hum Sochte Hai Kuch ,Yeh Saali Sochti Kuch Aur Hai
Yeh Zindagi, Yeh Saali Zindagi

Talash...

Rahne De Aasman,Zamin Ki Talash Kar,
Sab Kuch Yehin Hai.......Na Kehin Aur Talash Kar,
Har Aarzoo Puri Ho To Jine Ka Kya Maza,
Jine Ke Liye Bus Ek Wajah Ki Talash Kar....

What do women want?

What actully a women want? Does anyone really know?? Many a philosophers have spent a lifetime trying to figure this one out.
Here is my attempt to answer this question as I see it. For the one woman really close to me is Me.

We want to be secured and yet be fancy free!

We want a career and we want the choice to quit when we wish.

We want freedom of choice, of opinion, of living the way we want.

We want a man who loves us, respects us and cares for us. We want a man who keeps us on a pedestal up there and adore us. We want a man who really wants us.

We want children when we want them and not when the world thinks we should have them.

We want money.

We want the perfect wardrobe. We want a lot of shoes -bags. We want holidays and vacations.

We want a healthy body. We want to love our curves, our color, our skin and our hair. And we do.

We want a nice beautiful home. A warm welcoming place to come back to.

We want friends who are as mad as us and yet understand us.

We want to be individuals first and then be seen as “women”.

We want to be respected. We are proud of who we are, please do not force us to think otherwise.

Is this asking for a lot??

Does your partner call you during his/her day ?

Does your spouse call you during his/her day ?

Mine does and so do I. Whenever we need , we call each other and talk about ..whatever ..whats happening in offices , what is the plan for evening /weekend ,what we will have for our dinner , What did my mom say over phone ..if I have spoken with my sis or with any friend whatever ..but we talk ..everyday …atleast once. Sometimes our talks last for only 30 seconds and sometimes 5 minutes or so, depending upon how we are placed at work.


Do you think its unusual ? I don’t think so. But one of my friend does. She saw me talking to my spouse and asked if that was my Mom. When I told , no it was husband , her response was “WOW great”. I said , “why WOW ? and what is so great about it ” and there was another question , “he calls you everyday ?” , I said obviously and she goes “Cool !!!!”. Confused I asked again , what is so great about it and she said , it's really great that he finds time to talk to you !!! I just smiled...and said not " HE" , “WE” find time to talk to each other. She said we always have time for our husbands.............I didn't say anything to her......I think I knew what she will say again and what she was feeling.I have changed the topic.....


Now, first of all as I said "WE" find time to talk each other.Really doesn't matter who calls. Second , we never really make any effort to find time to talk , it comes naturally to us. I look upto him when I have anything to talk and so does he. Its how we are. Its how I think all couples should be.


The friend is my neighbour,a middle aged lady married for almost 5-6 yrs. But she found it extraordinary.


Another friend of mine told me once that she and her husband hardly talk after they get home. She told that most of the time husband is busy with newspaper , while she takes care of house and kids. And at night too , she sleeps with the kids while husband , gets to bed late. And they are a happy couple.???


To me this is what is strange. How can you live with a person without a heartful talk. I feel stressed unless I tell my husband everything important that happened during the day. Having his point of view makes me feel relaxed. And I believe he sails in same boat.


Is this unusual ? Really don't know.

From My Old Diary--By Nida Fazali

वो शोख शोख नज़र सांवली सी एक लड़की
जो रोज़ मेरी गली से गुज़र के जाती है
सुना है
वो किसी लड़के से प्यार करती है
बहार हो के, तलाश-ए-बहार करती है
न कोई मेल न कोई लगाव है लेकिन न जाने क्यूँ
बस उसी वक़्त जब वो आती है
कुछ इंतिज़ार की आदत सी हो गई है
मुझे
एक अजनबी की ज़रूरत हो गई है मुझे
मेरे बरांडे के आगे यह फूस का छप्पर
गली के मोड पे खडा हुआ सा
एक पत्थर
वो एक झुकती हुई बदनुमा सी नीम की शाख
और उस पे जंगली कबूतर के घोंसले का निशाँ
यह सारी चीजें कि जैसे मुझी में शामिल हैं
मेरे दुखों में मेरी हर खुशी में शामिल हैं
मैं चाहता हूँ कि वो भी यूं ही गुज़रती रहे
अदा-ओ-नाज़ से लड़के को प्यार करती रहे



निदा फाज़ली
