One Big Happy Family.

Warning: If you are looking for heads and tails to a story, do not, I repeat do not proceed reading this post, not even as much as look at the pictures.

Once upon a time there was a lonely pigeon called A.

Time passed by, and one fine day his eyes fell on someone, a very beautiful other called B.

Though there was initial hesitation between the two shy pigeons, eventually their loved blossomed.

One fine day, at the very place where the two love birds used to meet, there came a third person called X. Of course, there has to be something amiss in a love story, right?

“Wait, what? There is someone else?” The B was heart broken.

A had to coax and cajole that in no way X was related to him.

“I will jump from this building if you don’t come back.” A warned.

Well, our B was very emotional and believed in what A had to say after seeing A’s stupidity 😀

And they were back together, very happy with each other.

In future they would make X jealous, with their one big happy family, X standing just a little away.

Okay, I am sorry for this really ‘bad’ post. This might be the lowest level of my humor. But as it happens, people who know me, might relate that when I am bored and or tired I, specifically my mind, can go to really great extremes, one of the result of which is this post.

And if you have come this far, I truly, really am thankful for bearing with my deranged mind.

A year passed by!

How hard is blogging according to you?

Of course I’d expect various answers; one among them would most certainly be that it is extremely time consuming. I agree to it. I wouldn’t lie and most of the times there isn’t enough time really. And that is the first and foremost reason that I failed at blogging!

Yeah, if you consider this site as ‘not failed’ then I would like to tell you that this is not my only try at being in the blogging community. I started my very first blog when I was in my first year of college, absolutely the wrong time for me. I scribbled there for a whole year, where basically no one read what I wrote, apart from a couple of friends who knew me already. Eventually, it became a personal diary for me when I hid my site from public, making it a private site. And now it’s no longer there. I completely deleted it. So that was my first fail!

Then came this site, yes, you heard it right! I opened this site last year, somewhere around March or April; I did a few posts, and tried a little something about being heard. Post two months, I deleted this site too but I kept the domain, and never really removed the entire account. So that was my second fail.

I was really worried at the fail. I mean I don’t like failure, honestly who does? I have tried a lot of things and except for mathematics and Accounts I have never been a failure, and that’s when it struck me that I really couldn’t deal with it.

So that’s how I started this blog which I am writing on today, last August. Today I complete a whole year of blogging. I don’t know about failing or not, I think I certainly didn’t let this one go. As of now I  have 230 posts and more than 22000 views, 11000 visitors and a set of followers who really appreciate my work and motivate me.  I don’t know, you tell me how have I been doing? I do not believe in numbers and yet here I am putting forward the numbers. Why? Because I have been trained to do so, we need marks everywhere to pass exams, we need a certain cut off to enter a competitive exams. Intelligence isn’t important, marks and numbers are. But please don’t judge me by the marks. Tell me honestly.

Since the last year that I wrote “I am still finding myself”, there have been some changes.  I wouldn’t say that the questions have disappeared altogether but I have some answers now. But I am yet to find the rest.

Also, just so I don’t lose hope, and don’t start fading away just when I realised that I am here since a year, I put myself in a zone. I tried it last month too, but I couldn’t complete it due to network issues in my area (no excuses), so now may be August is my month. I tried to scribble something every single day, not to increase my stats, not for the number of posts, not for anything else, just for myself. Might as well help me in some way. I don’t know what I was trying to prove to myself, but I did it is a challenge and so far I have not missed a day this month.

And yes, thank you to all you lovely people for joining me in the journey, without you all, every single one of you; this wouldn’t even be a journey.

Me- The ultimate fool.

On my birthday last month, my friend wished me good luck with such a heart-warming message and I the ultimate fool forgot his birthday. Well, I remembered, and I intended to call him up first thing in the morning, but then ‘the day’ happened and I forgot all about it. I just slipped. And the best part is I did not even remember this until 11:30 in the night. And then I grabbed my phone can called him instantly, simply apologizing. He did not mind, he said that he had been waiting for my call and had noticed that I hadn’t wished him yet. But still it was okay! So we had a good talk for a while and then we put off but I still did not like the fact that I forgot talking to him. While he on the other hand made it a point to call me at midnight, wrote me such a sweet text/poem. And what did I do? I forgot. Simple!

So I thought I’ll write him a poem or something, but then I realised that I don’t know what to write. What a shame!

So all I can say to him now is something like this,

Dear Yadu,

You are more capable than you think. And there is only one thing that I am waiting for you to do, write a book! You don’t give yourself enough credit for it, but you deserve every bit of it. You can really write a book which will be worth it, no matter what language you write in.

So may be very soon, eh?

I attach here the message he wrote me, and you can decide for yourself if he is capable or not. (Also I did a little translation in English which I am really not proud of. And I also know this is going to annoy him. He doesn’t like translations.)

Ek unsuljhi paheli, ek khamosh si kahani, ek mushqil sa sawal

Ye sab thi tum, aur shayad abhi bhi ho kisi k liye

Lekin jab jana to laga ye sab nahi ho tum,

Sirf ek acchi dost ho mere liye

Ek paheli nahi, paheliyo ka rasta ho tum

Khamosh kahani nahi ek bolti kitab ho tum,

Mushkil sawal nahi, un sawalo ka jawab ho tum

Beshaq alag ho tum, auro se bilkul alag,

Tabhi to shayad hazaroo ki bheed me tumhe pehchanna asan tha.

An unsolved puzzle, a silent story, a difficult question,

You were all of these things to me,

May be you are still one of these things for someone else, but not me.

Now when I know you, you aren’t any of these things to me.

You are only a true friend for me.

You are not an unsolved puzzle, but the answers to all the puzzles.

Not a silent story, but you are a book with your own life story,

You are not a difficult question, but you are the answers to all the questions.

Of course you are totally different from others,

That is why may be it was way too easy for me to find you among the crowd of 1000s.

What made you stay?

Time just flies, doesn’t it?

Every time I look back to my younger days, I just realise how stupid I was to make a fool of myself every time everywhere. It has been a very trying experience, exhausting at times but also very stimulating journey for me. Gradually I have evolved into the woman that I am today and it just doesn’t take a second for someone to question me ‘Why am I so, today?’

That is not what bothers me and I accept that I am still in the process of learning and evolving. I should admit I had been once a very lonesome person, always in her own world, not much have changed about it today too but some improvement has been made and I try harder every single day to include people in my life. So I wonder what made few people in my life to stay despite the person I was back then?

I have not been in barest contact with my old pals, some of them who really meant a lot to me in my life and I tried time and again to maintain a relationship that I wanted and which we shared but it did not happen. I have lost almost every single one of them. But then what made the two of the loveliest souls stay back?

Why did they stay and not move away like the rest, I had never put in extra effort for them, it was all equal and yet the two of them stayed. They did and they are still a part of my life and a very important one at that. I can never put into words what they mean to me, my limits of vocabulary fail me here but they are the pillars of my life, the orientation of who I am today.

“I have changed”, yeah I have heard that criticism a lot often but these people have never complained and they have been there always. Thank you! I know it isn’t sufficient and never will be, but what else can a selfish person like me say?

500+; Q/A once again!

Hey dear bloggers,

Today I open my blog after a few days and get a notification informing me that I have 500+ followers. Well, I couldn’t contain myself and I don’t think any one of you could too.

I am too overjoyed. It has been really a short span for me here and in that I have not only gained 500 followers but also readers who appreciate my work and take out there time to read and give their thoughts on my posts. I am truly thankful to each one of you here for supporting me and my tini-tiny blog.

A big Thank you to all of you for encouraging me.

And now it’s Q/A time. I will try to answer any of your questions and will surely like to know about you too. Feel free to share anything about yourself. It would be a great time to connect.

Thanks!

A Mesmerizing Night!

It was 2 in the morning and we had just returned to our cottage after performing for a show. Everyone was drenched with tiredness and cravings for the bed were too tempting to resist and yet I was there deprived of sleep, restless and wanting to go out into the open air. I was choked with people and all I wanted was to breathe in isolation. (Too many people in a single room is not my cup of tea)

So there I was silently treading into the hallway. My shushed steps and the fortunately hinged door did not awake anyone but there he was sitting on the stairway listening to music, as if he was there waiting only for me.

Instantly, he put off his earphones and gave me the most beautiful smile that I had seen in a really long time. There were no words and as if it was already assumed, I sat there across him tugging at my scarf.

It was dark. The whole cottage was dark and the only possible light was the moonlight. Honestly, I am not exaggerating any bit of it. The light was barely enough to know who the person is and yet it was more than enough for me. And no, it was not a full moon night 😉

We started talking and we talked and only talked the entire night. We laughed, we made fun of people, we shared our stories and suddenly I could see his face more clearly smiling at me. Well, it wasn’t radiance that came abruptly; it was the sun!

We talked till sunrise and even after that. None of us moved, none of us wanted to leave, at least I think of it that ways and we chattered even more till we expected people to wake up and notice us.

Somehow all the grogginess of the previous day did not matter, what our friends were doing did not matter; all it mattered was the present where I was smiling and making the most of it. I was happy.

I do not know what it was. It wasn’t any bit romantic but after a long time there was someone who made me realise I am not that bad a person, even I could be easy going, even I could be a person with whom someone could share his feelings, that I could be a friend too.

I am glad to have him as a friend and scared too for losing him since I have always lost people that I have cared for. And so with a heavy heart I stood up from there not wanting to leave. But I knew that I had to walk away. The sun had risen. The night was over and it was time to return to the reality.

PS: If only I could tell this to him, all I want is to thank him for being there that night and for being there as my friend when most of the people I know think of me as a selfish and self-centred person. I am super bad at expressing myself to others so I am doing it here.

Dear friend, Thank you from the bottom of my heart and I love you for this, also I hope this is not some random friendship for you as it really means something to me.

Really 2#

A big thank you to all of you who are reading this for it is because of you that I have achieved 200+ followers on WordPress that to so very soon. It has been really a short span here for me and I have somehow managed to get immense support from people around here. I cannot thank you all enough.

And now it’s again Q/A time so ask me any thing you wish to and tell me one thing about yourself. It could be a random fact, a weird habit,  a hobby or anything. Just lets know each other.

And yes thank you again!
