Fine bond that binds us
Respect we give each other
Innumerable secrets that we share
Encouragement we give each other
Nice things we share together
Reflects how dear we are to each other
Simple to make
Hard to break
Importance we give each other
Little drops of water
Little grains of sand
Make the mighty ocean
And the pleasant land
So the little minutes
Humble though they be
Make the mighty ages of eternity...
Know the true value of time
Snatch, Seize and Enjoy every moment of it

A winter evening
Four glasses of Chai.
Hundred bucks of petrol
A rusty old bike
And an open road.
A hostel room
3 old friends
3 separate cities
3 coffee mugs
1 internet messenger
Rain on a hot tin roof
Pakoras deep frying
Neighbors dropping in
You and mom
A summer night
A bottle of coconut oil
A head massage
Gossiping about absent family members
You can spend
Hundreds on birthdays
Thousands on festivals
Lacks on weddings
But to celebrate……
All you have to do is spend your time with your loved ones

how you forget but..
how you forgive
Not how we listen but..
how you understand
Not what you see but..
how you feel and
Not how you let go but..
how you hold on!!!!
Value those friends who find time for you in their calender, but cherish those friends who dont consult their Calender when you need them
To pull you out of saddened tunes
To brighten up your cloudy skies
To clear up fictitious lies
Friends are there with open arms
To comfort you and block your harms
To entertain you when you want to play
Friends are there, smile or tear
Friends are there happiness of fear
Friends are fun and friends are clever
And the ties that bind friends will last forever...

without those happppening gossips
without those movies

with the wild winds blowing around
i close my eyes
and find myself along with a hundred around
all of them revealing to me
the unspoken, the unheard...
all in just a fraction of a second
i wonder how!!!!
This made me realise
the Sound of Silence
not letting me free
even in a moment of silence
How do i calm it???
how do i tame it???
how can i experience the silence silently....

My eyes filled with tears
My lips crushed between my teeth
My hands wrapping myself tightly
My heart crying for its own death..
I see no future in front of me
May be I don’t see the one I wished to
It’s hard to get ready for another future
The future where I won’t see you any more
The future where I will forget you completely..
Everything around me is empty now
Everything that had had life before
I will look for a shop where I can buy a new heart
This time I will be careful not to let it fall
At least for the one who is not going to catch it..?
I will start a new beginning
I will color myself in a different brush
To hide my pains from others
I won’t let myself get wet in emotions
I’m just afraid to learn about love again . . .
i've got my visa approved for USA ;-);-)
planning to leave this August.
now when i just sit back and think bout all that happened b4 the appointment, it just brings a smile onto my face. 1001 things were going on in my mind at that time. what sd i answer if he asks bout that??? What if he asks this????? On the interview day, my heart was running like a shatabdi. I could here my heart beat so loud, felt if sm one would ask me bout that(heeeeee) All that tension 4 just half a minutes interview. Then i understood that VISA is 90% luck and 10% presence of mind... One nod 4m the counselor and so much of joy. Came out and saw not just my dad waiting 4 to here what happened, but so many others waiting to here me. I was just speechless 4 a moment..... Just felt so great. as if i have won a great battle :-)
called up all my relatives... a beautiful experience!!!!

a name very synonymous for his pure ghee sweets, a genial octogenarian passed away 2 days back... A Great man of simple living and high thinking. a person who had utmost care for the young, immense amount of respect for women and highly principled values. he was a man who rose from the scratch and showed the world that nothing is impossible and anything can be attained by maintaining integrity
i admire u sir and my heartfelt condolence
Memories of you
What do I do?
When I find myself
Sitting on the roof top
With memories of you
I forget when I find myself
Walking in the sunshine
It has been a while
I have never changed my style
But Sometimes I find myself
Faking on the outside
Yeah!!! It has been a while
Still can’t forget your smile
Now I find myself
Drifting to the other side
Painting a picture
Of a life much better
Still I find myself
Reminiscing the old times
Trying to write you a letter
Of how I’m so much happier
But I find myself
With no words left to write
Why does your memory stay?
In my mind like it’s a constant play
I hate it when I find myself
Wiping my eyes dry
I’m trying to go away
Moving on to a different day
But still I find myself
Dreaming of my old times
Of how it used to be
When you were still near me
When will I ever find myself?
Writing up a new rhyme?
Just wanted you to know
It’s hard but ill let it go
Coz I still find myself
Holding on to you…

BUT MAKE IT FAST...
The night felt heavy in the heights of the mountain, and the man could not see anything. All was black. Zero visibility and the moon and the starts were covered by the clouds. As he was climbing, only a few feet away from the top of the mountain he slipped spots as he went down and the terrible sensation of being sucked by gravity. He kept falling and in those moments of great fear, it came to his mind all the good and bad episode of his life. He was thinking about how close death was getting when all of a sudden he felt the rope tied to his waist pull him very hard. His body was hanging in the air. Only the rope was holding him and in that moment of stillness. He had no other choice but to scream HELP ME GOD!!
save me GOD!!
GOD-Do you think i can save you?
Of Course i believe you can
GOD-Then cut the rope tied to your waist....
the rescue team tells that the next day a climber was found dead and frozen. His body hanging from a rope. his hands holding tight to it
How attached are you to your ROPE?
WILL you let go???

article sent by Amin Sarfani.....
Once a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable. She was tired of struggling all the time. Just as one problem was solved, another one followed. Her father, who was a chef took her to the kitchen. He filled three pots with boiling water and placed potatoes in one pot, eggs in another and some coffee beans in the third. After 20 minutes, he turned off the burners. He took the potatoes out of the pot and placed them in a bowl. Next he pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Finally, he ladled out some coffee into a cup
Turning to his daughter he asked her, "What do you see?" "Potatoes, eggs and coffee", she replied. "Look closer", he said, "And touch the potatoes", she did and noted they were soft. He then asked her to take an egg and break it. When the shell came off, the egg was noted to be hard-boiled. Finally , he asked her to sip the coffee. Its rich aroma brought a smile to her face.
"Father, what does this mean?" she asked him. He then explained that the potatoes, eggs and coffee beans had each faced the same adversity: Boiling water. However, each one reacted differently. The potatoes went in strong, hard and unrelenting, but in boiling water, they became soft and weak. The egg was fragile, with a thin outer shell and liquid inside, but in boilling water, it became hard inside. The ground beans were unique, when they were exposed to boiling water, they changed the water and created something new.
"What are you?" he asked his daughter. "When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a Potato, an Egg or a Coffee bean?"
In life things happen around us, things happen to us, but the only thing that truly matters is what happens within us. Let us all try and be like coffee beans: ADDING FLAVOR AND FRESHNESS TO THE WORLD AROUND US...

To weep is to Risk appearing sentimental
To reach out for another is to Risk involvement
To expose feelings is to Risk exposing your true self
To place your ideas, your dreams before a crowd is to Risk their loss
To love is to Risk not being loved in return
To live is to Risk dying
To hope is to to Risk despair
To try is to Risk failure
but RISKS must be taken
coz the greatest hazard in life is to RISK nothing
The person who risks nothing, Does Nothing, Has Nothing and Is Nothing
They may avoid suffering and sorrow, but they cannot Learn, Feel , Change, Grow Love or Live
To keep the home together
Nobody knows of the steps it takes
Nobody knows but Mother
Nobody listens to childish woes
Which kisses kindly smother
Nobody's pained by naughty blows
Nobody knows of the anxious fears
list darlings may not weather
The storms of life in after years
Nobody knows but Mother
Nobody keels at the throne above
To thank the heavenly father
For that sweetest gift- a mothers love
Nobody can- but Mother
im so happyyyy that finally i have started with my FIRST post....yippee!!!!!

I am Soujanya,

i love spending time with my friends (though not all of them all the time) i enjoy going to the college... but hate attending those lectures. i have sufficient number of beautiful moments of my college life which i can proudly cherish for the rest of my life.... i love spending hrs in the canteen talking bout all the unnecessary crap going on around.. i have joined MBA out of my passion for it... i have great dreams for making this world a better place to live in. i believe in two things very strictly 1. Whatever u give, will find its way back to 'U'--- so just keep smiling and 2. Nothing... Nothing at all is permanent but CHANGE--- so be ready for it all the time...
and the rest of me i guess u can figure it out with my posts....
