Girl in green

This magic wave I feel within me;
When I look at the picture of you.

As if whole world stopped for me;
I am lost and I don’t have a clue.

Those black pearl eyes of you;
Staring through the picture screen.

The shining thin body of you;
Wrapped around the bottle green.

The silent cute lips of you;
Convey a message of love to me.

The earings not far behind;
Nicely hanging long and free.

The thick hair falling in front;
Trying to make its presence felt.

Covering over the eyebrow end;
Just sums up the cute yourself.


I heard a "YES"

It’s like a feeling I can’t explain;
Like a heartbeat; I can’t restrain

Like heavens opened up on me;
Like a nested bird just set free.

All of sudden, I have the powers;
I imagine myself on a bed of flowers.

Your smile is worth a million dollars;
Like all is simple; there are no miracles.

I feel like jumping up and down;
Like the craziest boy in the town.

Tremor of happiness I feel within me;
This incredible joy and ferocious glee.

Like a current which passes through me;
When I hear your voice so sweet.

It’s a journey now I want to commence;
My happiness now has no bounds no ends.


I am sorry my love

I had all that I prayed, but I gave it away,
I am sorry my love, I just couldn’t hold on to you.

It hurt me a lot, and I was losing the plot,
I was searching for ways; I should have just gone to you.

I was ruing my sin, and was boiling within,
I regret it o’ dear, for lashing it on to you.

In the good old days, we were inseparable mates,
But now all has changed; I am just another man to you.

I was losing my mind, while listening your whines,
I could only despise, the doubts that were born to you.

You got sillier with time, the one who was never mine,
I tried to hold on; in the end I just lost to you.

You never looked back, you were miles ahead,
I tried to catch up, but I couldn’t run out to you.

I don’t really ask, for you to come back,
I walked many miles, for making across to you.

I’ll try to move on, now that you are gone,
I am sorry my love, I just couldn’t hold on to you.

One liners

The doors of opportunities have no keyholes to unlock; they must be knocked down.

There is a very thin line between frienship and love. Crossing over the first does not qualify you as the victor.

Happiness and success are two different things. Some people find happiness in success while some find success in happiness. Never mind the rest.

Whenever I blame others for my failures; it always clicks to me that my present situation is nothing but a manifestation of the cumulative effects of my own deeds in the past.


How I met your mother-Must watch

This show has to be one of the greatest sitcoms ever. The reason why I am writing about this great American comedy show here is that I cannot have enough of it. It is an amazing piece of direction and comedy which revolves around some of the very fundamental aspects of human life like relationships, commitments, goals, having fun, friendship, quarrels, achievements, happiness, love, affection, break-ups, reconciliation, partying, making mistakes, feeling sorry, but above all being there for each other no matter what, even if it means going through phases where you seem to lose it altogether only to discover that it was a minor scare in a never ending relationship.
The show typifies brilliant situational comedy along with a lot of catchy life changing quotes enunciated especially by Barney who turns out to be my favorite character in the show. Ted and Robin who have been through so many ups and downs in their relationship still manage to co-exist in unity, a situation rarely possible in real life. The humor created by a concoction of crazy sequences along with curiosity regarding who eventually will be the mother of Ted’s children is unparalleled. It just goes to show that life sometimes cannot be perfect and moreover we should never try to make it perfect. We will always end up making mistakes and digging a hole for ourselves sometimes but as long as we understand that imperfections are a part and parcel of life and we are just a living soul destined to witness them, we will start to enjoy them. Lilly and Marshal in the show are great examples of this. Lilly abandoned a 9 year old relationship with Marshal for some stupid desire of hers but made up for it soon, they spent their entire life savings buying an apartment only to learn that it was crooked and many more such situations occurred but there never was a dull moment in their lives and they found happiness in every adversity and it was this quality of theirs which got them through everything. They would share each situation with their friends and find a solution eventually which they call as “taking to the group”. They even once helped Barney to help find the women who was bugging him constantly remembering situations which involved Ted and Robin with Barney on a sketch board which was stolen from Lilly’s kindergarten class by Marshal. Now this epitomizes craziness for sure. The enigma created by director is simply unprecedented and unique. For Ted to do a ‘Rain dance’ to make it rain and prevent Robin going for a date with someone else was simply awesome. Nothing is impossible, really. Ted even sold his newly bought car to help Marshal pay a debt. These are some of the highlights of the show interlinked with brilliant moments of laughter and mini flashbacks which tend to intrigue you even more as Ted narrates to his children his story about how he met his wife and what eventually transpired in his life. He remembers that even though Marshal was his best friend , Barney (portrayed by Neil Patrick Harris) although incredibly crazy also always tried to be his best ‘wingman- as they call it in the show’ or best supporter. He realizes that there is nothing called as ‘best’ or ‘better’ in friendship; it is just that there are ‘best’ or ‘better’ situations, sometimes worst. Ted remembers when he was about to date the most perfect women he had ever imagined but aborted at the last minute as he realized that the more he tried to perfect his life, the more he screwed it up. He discovered that there was an inexplicable fun in making mistakes because the thing about mistakes is that you don’t know them until they are made. Ted missed the flight to his dream job as he went to pull Barney off a train where he was stranded only to be caught by cops. He could look at it as a mistake and rue it for life or he could just let it go and think of it as just another incidence in his life. He chose the latter. As it turned out, if he would have boarded the flight and if Barney would not have been in trouble, he would have never met his wife. So it wasn’t a mistake after all.


I'll never stop loving you

I just came around, to your place downtown;
Elated and mirthful, like a jubilant clown.

I just couldn’t resist; couldn’t hold my wish;
For a glimpse of you, and a quiet tryst.

Thinking of you always, I travelled my way;
I just live for you; I can dare say.

Didn’t tell you that; couldn’t let you know;
This desire of mine, couldn’t let it go.

Just moments away, I am saying it true;
When I blinked my eyes; I saw just you.

When I found you there, right in the place;
I froze I swear; left in the daze.

Had a clash in the brain, and a loss of health;
When I saw you there, with someone else.

You didn’t see me there; I lost my feet;
It struck me hard, like a shock defeat.

Why did you do this? I always loved you;
Not a sign of warning, or a roughed clue.

Taking on the chin, I walked away in pain;
And never would I ask for you to explain.

All I want to say is ‘spare a thought for me’;
I am a lost sailor now; in the stormy sea.

Amidst the winds, when I go through;
I can lose myself, but will never stop loving you.


The 'plane' analogy

I was at the airport the other day for a long halt on the way to Mumbai. Long halts at the airports can be tiring and can test your patience. On the other hand, it almost seems like this mini-world where everything is going on smoothly without any hassles. It’s this perfect world which we always wish the outside world could be. There are restaurants, walkways, money exchanges, waiting rooms, internet services, medical services etc. Yet there are things which are distinctively different from the outside world though or may I say the absence of them. No separate homes, traffic, terror, pollution or ghettoization. Now is that a negative??
Sometimes I kind of get lost in this world as if everyone is living under one umbrella and is so content by this fact. Why couldn’t our world be like that? Everyone I could see around was hopeful of something. There is a lot of positivity around. Why can’t we replicate the same outside?
I saw a father waiting to see his daughter, a couple embarking on a journey for holidays, some people thrilled as it’s their first flight ever and not to mention mother’s tears when her son is leaving abroad for studies. I realized that hope and love is really what binds us all. The materialistic comfort and the sumptuousness don’t matter to us as long as we are close to our loved ones. We value the core principles of life more than anything else and are ready to face and grapple the exterior inhabitation with respect to this miniature world of luxuries. Cheers to humanity!
For the complete journey, I was in this surreal world I had imagined and was enjoying it. Suddenly there was this announcement that the flight had reached Mumbai. A lovely song started playing “Yeh Rishta kya kehlata hain……”. There it was, Mumbai beckoning. I felt an instant nostalgia and couldn’t resist rushing out and feeling the sense of belongingness to my mother country India. It’s always a great feeling to be back home. I also saw an advertisement caption showing “Welcome to the real world”.
I think the journey in a plane is like a journey in life. There are no stops in between. Only life and death or departure and arrival. The difference being that we are the pilots of our own plane of life. We have to judge the correct path which will lead us to a meaningful and safe journey. There will always be cloud of difficulties and turbulences every now and then. We must have the wings of high spirit to keep us aloft; the hidden wheels of wisdom which run on smooth runways of perseverance to ensure safe landing in every destination or milestone. The windows of opportunities can only show the world to us and then it is up to us whether to close the lid on them or just face it. Hard work and belief is the essential fuel to realize the speed and direction of success. There is no other substitute discovered yet. Sometimes we fly on high altitudes and sometimes low. But hey, it doesn’t matter, as long as we keep flying and in our heart we know that we will make it after enduring all the lightnings of hardships and challenges and there is no reason for us not to find out that SKY IS THE LIMIT.
