How are you?

Often when people ask me "how are you?" , i like to assume they actually are interested in the answer. and so i answer. and often my answer is " i am so happy!" which surprisingly freaks them out. funnier still is that they go on to ask me "why on earth are you happy?" ...i was never really satisfied with the answers i gave. i realised only today that though i knew the answer, i dint always remember to say it.
so to all those freakified souls who want to know why my life's so magical..

If I had to promise you something, what would it be?

I can’t promise that you would always be comfortable…
Because comfort brings boredom and discomfort.

I can’t promise that all your desires will be fulfilled…
Because desires whether fulfilled or unfulfilled bring frustration.

I can’t promise that there will always be good times…
Because it is the tough times that make us appreciate joy.

I can’t promise that we will be rich or famous or powerful…
Because they can all be pathways to misery.

I can’t promise that we will always be together…
Because it is separation that makes togetherness so wonderful.

Yet if you are willing to walk with me,
If you are willing to value love over everything else ~

I promise that this will be the most rich and fulfilling life possible.
I promise your life will be an eternal celebration,
I promise you I will cherish you more than a king cherishes his crown,
And I shall love you more than a mother loves her newborn.

If you are willing to walk into my arms,
If you are willing to live in my heart,
You will find the one you have waited forever….
You will meet yourself in my arms…
I promise.

Poem written by H.H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

With such a Guru in my life, why would i not be dating Mr.Happiness?
Folks! i am! and i am proud to inform you that he believes in polygamy!
so i heartily invite you to jump in and join the ride!
much love
jai guru dev!

aap kaun?

us risthe ko kya naam doon
jo mujhe trupti ki aansu me sametle

us ehsaas ko kaise samjhaoon
jo bandh nazaron me hai bhari

us bhakti ko kaise chipaaon
jo gunguna rahi hai madhur milap

kya tumhi woh eshwar ho
jo mujhme ghar basaane aa chale?

maiden attempt

Is kshan parmaatma ke anantarang me jhoom raha hai mann..
Sampoornata ke ehsaas se bheeg raha hai kan kan..

Yahi prem ko baatne ka junoon sawaar hai..
Jiski anubhuthi hi tho moksh ke dwaar hai..

Bhakti se janma hua har aansu prafullit hua..
In boondon mein doob kar dil se ubhar rahi hai dua!

(pls praise for motivational purposes ;))

the right bargain

i wait for the days when my granny comes home. its so delightful to have her cook simple but tasty food for all of us. all granma's have magic fingers. i make it a point to go shopping for veggies and fruits with her when she comes over. its so much fun to shop for veggies from the street vendors. i love to chit chat wit them, i can pick n choose each bhindi if need be, theres so much joy in the chaos also! most importantly the veggies and fruits look so happy compared to the unbelievably perfect ones bandaged with thin plastic in those huge super markets. they just dont fit in the incredible india framework.
the point however of this post is something else. here goes:
everytime i went to shop thus , i would bargain and show off my skills to granny. one such day, after a brilliant bargain, i shared this wit dad who i thot will be pretty kicked about it. but he pointed out how silly i had been to bargain wit a street vendor who barely earns for all the hardwork he puts in sitting the whole day come rain come shine. dad told me to bargain instead at nike and adidas stores where one spends a minimum of 3 grand for a pair of shoes. i happened to get a useful forward on my mail after long about the manufacture cost of a branded shoe being less than around a dollar! my dad's perspective was so beautiful. from that day on, all vendors who i buy veggies from feel so lucky! hehe.

In Times of Change..

The smell of mud, I cannot smell
Spread over vast lands beneath my earth.
Seems like a play of space
As stars wave out to their shadows below
The gigantic spherical sense dawns,
From my 10 inch window.
The thin line between night and day
Cuts through as I blink my eye
This arrangement of elements so sweet
My heart beats for the work of that man.
Messy in close proximity
One dainty scene from a bird's eye
The owl in me gets a glimpse of paradise.


It's so nice when the vision is blur, from all that hurts one is away, and brings about a sense of deafness.
The eyes can make mistakes in judging one's own from a hater. With eyes closed, there is no peace as the face stays in the virtual darkness and teases you. Your stupidity. Maybe just your innocence.
The blur has you weeping without emotions. Walking into disturbed nature and not obliged to share plesantaries. Fake ones. It wishes that it doesn't recognise speed and the body loses itself by being killed mercilessly. But this brings great joy. Seems like an act of mercy.

Once upon a time there were 3 blind mice, they loved to fart. They took the help of Pinnochio's dad to build a small home for their family. Very ambitiously they planned a ballroom party as their house warming ceremony. Obviously Cinderella, Snow white and Hansel were invited. No one forgot their shoes! Suprise!!! Sadly none of them could enjoy the ball cos they couldnt enter the house of the mice. The dwarfs had fun though. The girls went back home hungry and ate the bread crumbs gratel had dropped few years ago. They walked through the jungle through the night gossiping. The sun came up and they were still walking and talking. Girls! Snow white developed heat boils as the sun was beating down on them. Cinderella got loose motions due to food poisoning thanks to ancient bread crumbs. Then she ate the apple that snow white had brought as gift for the mice, but dint give cos the apple got stuck in their door. Cinederalla gobbled down the apple and obviously her health got better. Two negatives make a positive.Voila! They were tired so they sat down to play a game. The game was to make maximum words from Rumpeltstiltskin. Guess who won? Rapunzel. Forgot to mention. She had joined them at half past six. She won the game cos while she was locked in that castle for many years, she was doing just that. They all studied fashion designing in the palace of the naked king. The latest fashion discovery were hooded clothes. But the only one who could afford it was red riding. All thanks to her hardworking grandmother. The other women dint even have mothers to care for them. But sometimes lovers can be more caring. So they never really missed family. They hung out in cosy places with their horse riders until mowgli came and spoilt their fun. Mogli and Meshwa and Simba and Nala always went on double dates. they eventually got married in madagascar. it was the best rave party ever. i like to move it move it. u like to? MOVE IT. there was lot of fireworks. Peter pan entered late. Hansel fell in love at first site. fireworks. The 3rd blind mouse was pregnant with jerry. fireworks. Rapunzel won a gift for wackiest hair do. fireworks. Mr. and Mrs. Shrek won the award for the most romantic couple. fireworkds. They all lived in the magic world of innocence and beauty. the rest is history. they all lived happily ever after. THE END.
