Just Random

I am not a sincere blogger and maybe that’s why I have the readership volume somewhere near to nil. When I started this, I was so keen and excited and in those days all I wanted was to write and update stuffs on my blog sheet but things came back to normal like they always do. I have always cried about this ; wanting to write but not able to. Well I should know that the Fault is ofcource in me and not with me not having any time (cuz t8s a lie you DOG!).

Okay now coming to the phase of life m living now… Its so complex and mixed up and I totally don’t know where am heading to or actually doing and some of the things are totally out of my control so I guess am doing good by going with the flow. Lets see where the life is taking me and how the things would be there. Also shifting to a new city and living up by own for the first time is not that easy but am glad that I am doing okay and have handled it good.

Also, I so much agree with Monica Geller, who once said this very True but Beautiful line to Rachel : Welcome to the real world! It sucks. You’re gonna love it! 

Okay leaving everything aside, can I add here some very cool quotes to make  this post look interesting??? Okay,,,, Here yo Go :

Are You A Feminist/Anti-feminist??

On Women’s day

Pancajanya

Why I’m a feminist…

  • I’m a feminist not because of my views/opinions, only because it feels so cool to poke people over senseless things and no one can speak against me (because you know am a feminist!)
  • I like people to see myself as someone very oppressed and victimized (even though am not) just to play politics and to grab one or two opportunities.
  • I don’t fight for equal rights. I fight for superior rights.
  • I can do whatever I would like to do (no matters its legal or what) because am the flag bearer of feminism and can stop you from enjoying even your basic human rights because you are a man!
  • I can mock and make comment on anybody, anytime because am equal (actually superior) and its my right to express things but you cannot say a thing about any women because its sexist (its not btw!)
  • I will ask…

Will miss you

It was an usual late night when instead of sleeping I was browsing through the internet untill I saw this tweet about Sridevi’s demise! My heart escaped a bit, may be a hoax or rumor, I thought. And then a series of tweets started coming on the wall confirming what I was not ready for! It really shook me off.

I don’t remember when was the last time I was this upset by the death of a Bollywood celebrity. I couldn’t believe this in the first place. How could I! She died so young, giving us some hints about the uncertainty the life offers.  No illness or accidents, the death just came!

To be very honest I was not very much a fan of Sridevi until English Vinglish came  (may be because I didn’t grow up watching a lot of her movies and was not aware of her work). Her performance in the movie ‘MOM’  made my love for her stronger and thank god its not her last movie as she has a cameo appearance in an upcoming SRK movie.

Genuinely I’m feeling upset and can feel the loss. I miss her and I know I’m at the end of the queue with the kind of fanbase she have had.

May the India’s first female superstar Rest In Peace.

My review of Padmavat

I am writing this at the time when the movie Padmavat has finally released and most of the controversies and protests has almost come to an end. By this time The Karni Sena must have realized that what they were being told was actually true and there is nothing for them to protest about the movie and all this movie does is to glorify Rajputana heritage and their queen. Well they made a BOOBOO out of themselves.

So I watched this movie today and came out completely impressed. It was indeed a delight to witness some outstanding performances by its lead actors and the way it has been made. Watching in 3D ; Those jungle scenes, the palaces , the grandeur, the costumes and yeah the ostrich! And that mega Grand closure was pretty good too. Ranveer Singh z super awesome as Khilji and so are Deepika  and Shahid as the Rani Padmavati and Ratan Singh. Equally good performances were given by Aditi Rao hyderi and Jim Sarbh.

However the Bhansali came out completely clean , I am wondering how the goons of Karni Sena will be able to regain the respect it lost for themselves while they were busy saving the grace of Rajputi pride. Well, there is no use of getting angry on them or having a laugh on them when they themselves would have been crying in a corner for what they have done and lost. Whoever says they still protest Padmavat movie is saying this only because they don’t want to come out as fool now as even they know the truth. Well its their headache.

To all the other people including Rajputs, if you are willing to watch the movie but are not going out for some hesitation, Go out and watch this piece, you won’t regret it.

JAI BHAWNAI!

Life as of now.

I’m going through a change. Its risky but exciting.

So lately my life has been a little messy, unsettling also a bit of tiring but all these if taken together has been amazing. Really amazing! When you are to move to a place you have never been before, its kind of scary, same was with me . I was scared and worried when I was moving here but things have been awesome since then! though m still worried as I don’t really have been able to fulfill the purpose, but still!

I faced several rejections here, things didn’t go as how it was planned and still it hasn’t really changed much but guess what? Yet I love the city! why? well, the ‘people’ – the ‘weather’ and I get to eat ‘Dosa’ here more often! so no complains as of now.

I wish I could tell more. But I’m purposely keeping this short.

You guess the place!

See ya 🙂

 

The memory I would always cherish ! writing in love with Rishikesh.

I have traveled in a nice amount for my age. Almost the whole of North India but my love for Rishikesh z unparalleled. I remember how my eyes were moist when we were coming back from there. In fact I remember everything no matter if its been 14 years for God Sake!

The memories of me visiting Rishikesh for the first time z not clear for the reason that I was some 4 years old kid who was travelling with his whole Biggie Big joint family. It was primarily a Chaar-Dhaam yatra! Our travel destinations included Badrinath, Kedarnath, Yamnotri, Gangotri, Haridwar and Rishikesh and some other places too. Uttrakhand was still Uttar pradesh then. Now when I see the photos of that time all I make z faces with amazement and love. I can totally guess how difficult it used to be; travelling to these critically located mountain places at that time. Everytime I see my pics of Kedarnath,etc I go aww.

While the memories of my 1st trip to Uttrakhand are mainly supported by the pics I see on  the family album, the Rishikesh trip which I had some 14 years ago when I was a mere 9 z still very very clear and I can bet I will never have any memory parallel to that ever again! Yeah I bet!

The second time when I visited Uttrakhand, the travel plan was confined to Rishikesh and Haridwar and I’m saying it again it was ethereal! ❤ ❤                                                         So it was me with my BABA (granpa) Daadi maa (Granny) Mummy Bucha(my dad) my chahcha and chachi (uncle and aunt) and yeah my lill sister Jhilmil. It was a month and half stay at Swargaashram right in front of Ram Jhula, we stayed at a riverfront aashram “Geeta Bhawan” 2 and luckily managed to find a two room plus balcony stay.

ram_jhula
The view of RamJhula. Going there was a daily thing! we were just across! ❤ ❤

Here are few worth mentioning thing which made this trip the best I have and would ever imagine to have! ❤ ❤

The daily routine and the people there

As far as I remember, Geeta bhawan no 2 was the smallest among all yet we got the biggest place there and were the only people with balcony there. It was a two storey building in the large campus and most of the people used to live in single rooms. There was even a lady who had just one bed placed outside a door but that didn’t actually matter. I never found anybody complaining. How could they? it was so magical afterall!

I remember one friend we had, a litlle girl Khushi from Kolkata, she was quite young and was always accompanied by her baby sitter Rama Dii. Khusi’s parents as her grandfather used to say were in America but we always used to wonder why would they left behind a 4 years old daughter of theirs and would move to a foreign place! I still wonder. Anyway Playing with that little angel was always a joy.

Even when I was just 9 and was living in an alien place yet me and my sister (who was 5!) had no restriction at all. we used to roam all around and would often be going place like Ghaats and temple and no body cared!

A notable routine I remember which everybody in the family and the ashram used  to follow was write names of GOD Rama on a diary provided by someone in the ashram. You could always get another one when one diary gets completed! Everybody used to write and even me! I wrote it for 28000 times! Yeah! However I was far behind my grand parents and other people still It was a huge number. It used to be like a competition and I happily participated! Now I can only dream of that; writing ramnaam even for a single time with the enthusiasm same as that!

everybody from the family used to gather at this shade area where my daddy used to recite Ramayana to everybody else in the family while me and jhilmil used to play on the banks of the ganges.

In the evening I remember how me and jhilmil used to accompany Baba to the Ramjhula and from there we used to feed all the fish! Joy Joy Joy!

and the night was always pre booked for shopping and ganges aarti.

Ganges AArti

GOD it used to be so beautiful! we used to sit on the stairs of  Triveni ghaat and sing Hanumaan chalisa and other aartis with the melodious singers singing with all the instruments. That was not only us but the whole Big crowd including foreigners singing in fluent hindi! I always used to get so mesmerized by the environment! The river, diyas, music, air and everything else! Each word was a blessing! ❤

Ganga aarti Rishikesh  ❤ I feel lucky that I’have witnessed this daily for more than a month!

 

Parmarth Niketan

In swargashram there were mainy two aasrams , Geeta bhawan and Parmarth Niketan. Parmarth Niketan was just in adjacent to the Geeta bhawan and was its richer sibling! 😉 Me and Jhilmil would often go to Parmarth Niketan and would feel envy of the people living there, God It was so beautiful! However I don’t think Geeta Bhawan was any less!

Swargashram

As I have said we used to live at Geeta Bhawan. Geeta Bhawn and Parmarth and Ramjhula and the beautiful ghaats, these all places are at this magical area called swargashram. I can say it with full confidence that Swargashram is the soul of Rishikesh! Its beautiful and incredible. with all the aashrams ghaats hotels shops restaurants and amazing temples, I thank my luck that I got to live at this place called Swargaashram!

mascot-of-chotiwala-restaurant
How can I forget Chotiwala! They are at Swargashram! ❤

Multiculturalism

Rishikesh is the solid example of that! as we were in ashram, there were a lot of people from different parts of the country/world! There were Marwaris, Gujratis, Bengalis, Biharis, people from south India and all over the places and all mingling with each other, praying and singing together z what an exceptional example of EK Bharat Shreshtha Bharat! Also there were a lot of foreigners (too many for a small are like swwargashram), so many as there was one foreigner for every 4 Indian! I had never seen this many foreigners with so this much cultural interest in The Indian culture and religion. Many of them could even speak fluent hindi and some used to wear indian attires! wow!

The emotion!

while I’m writing this I can feel each and every emotions I lived there. Its really tough to make u feel the same just through my writing but believe me a 9 year old was literally crying while he was returning! Though I was too young to go for a rafting or do yoga for which Rishikesh z famous for, I wish I get to feel it again!

rishikesh
Oh my Love! This place! ❤

 

Rishikesh z always in my heart! Always! ❤

Me growing up with Information Tech.

Nowadays this is something very tough to imagine ; living a live with no networking devices at all. But this wasn’t the case some 15 and 20 years ago (atleast here in India). Very few people had mobile phones (and those too had no or poor internet connectivity) as only rich and city people could afford that. I’m only 23 and I can say that I have witnessed a revolution! The growth I have seen in connectivity (through IT) is  incredible!

I remember when I was some 5 or 6 and went to my grandma’s place (naanighar), a village in Uttar Pradesh , India with my mother  while my dad was away at home. It was a long vacation. There I remember getting a letter personally written for me by my dad. GOD ! The Excitment! the letter had everything, how I had a gift (a pet fish) awaiting back at home, how the weather z cooler there and what not! I was dying to go back and see the fish but it was not possible to even imagine seeing things located far away. That was perhaps the only personal letter I ever got since  thing soon begun changing. The kids today won’t understand the joy I would have gone through after getting a hand written letter specially for me. il_fullxfull.352641171_2dcg

I also remember Me and my mommy going  STD booths (located some kilometers away from the naani’s (granny’s) place just for making a call back home since there was no telephone at naani’s place. Back home we used to have our own telephone connection and it was a huge thing. neighbours would often come requesting a call. And now? everybody has a personal phone with ultra advance features.

Ohh! I remember when I visited my uncle’s place , he came to me and showed me a picture of mine on his mobile and I made  faces with amazment! GOD! how did my Image even get there on that phone! and then he told me that he clicked me live through his phone! Whhhat! A camera on a phone! I was left wondering for the whole day. The image quality if you compare to the phones we have nowadays was a joke but having even that 1.2 megapixel image of mine on my uncle’s cell was a magic back then! And what that phone costed was huge for that time! A junk phone (for today’s standard) with 1.2 megapixel camera costed him around 35000 rupees back in 2000s! Yeah and still it was magic. Literally a magic!

My uncle kept coming up with new phones with all the new features. I remember how I felt everytime; (when) I got to hear a ringtone and then a bollywood song for the first time via a mobile. Since our joint family was richer than the standard family back then , we had everything at our home, two or three Big colourful Tvs, Big sound system and Big cassette players , our own DVD system and everything that was in the market at that time. Neighbours and my school friends often used to come at my house and see these things with lure and amazment. How Proud I used to feel! But the mobile phones soon started taking away the charm :/ still a very few people could afford a mobile. we still had new advance phones with special features  (which my friends back than couldn’t afford) to show off. Well this showing off didn’t ran for a long time as mobiles started getting cheaper and better and now everybody started having atleast one mobile phones at there home. And this IT technology only got better with time……

Here in India we have now more than a billion mobile phones in the country. more than half of these phones have android features and have good 3G connection. Thanks to JIO’s free offers that these 3Gs have revolutionized to 4Gs. Today I might not feel as privileged (being among the very fews to have phones) but am happy to see India’s IT growing at this pace. Every body z connected and facilitated now and you don’t know how great it feels as a countrymen!                                                                                                                        And a  #FunFact : It was not a long ago when I used to have a rupee 6000 micromax phone with medicore features when my friends at college had phones I could only dream of! :p

(Its not only me but the) millions of us Indians are amazed by the changes we have gone through in IT connectivity! Today we can use our phones for almost everything, be it for entertainment or for paying bills or for banking or to get connected to someone sitting far and far away!  Its really huge and no revolution has been like this till today! Now when IT has developed so much nothing seems impossible to imagine!

Literally Nothing!

internet

Yet I would say that making a free and fast video call doesn’t give the same happiness as that of the letter I got in the Young age. Neither the joy of  seeing a youtube video z comparable to the happiness I used to get while dancing with my cousins on songs being played through our home cassette player. Seeing Lion King on that fat TV would always be better than anything on TV now.  And am NOT JOKING!

Confessing.

Hey! How have you been? Why am asking? Well, its been months and I have not really been here, no posts , nothing!

When I started my blog a few months back, I was so full of charge and hopes. I decided to be honest with my blog and thus made a promise of updating it daily! But as you know (or may be not) , it didn’t actually happen. After posting like two or three thoughts, I decided to make this duration weakly and then the rest is history! In all this while, (since I started blogging) I hardly wrote some five (freakin) articles!

I remember how I posted something for the first time on my blog and it got some 250 views. It was a big number for an amature (like me specially! :p)  for his first day. I made huge promises, dreamt of becoming some HOT-SHOT Blogger and what not! As I said, I was honest and good for the first few days and then it started feeling like a burden untill I stopped. Had I been regular (since the time I started)…

I don’t know why but am too lazy and too impatient to continue something. Its not that I don’t want to, but It’s only me who acts as the biggest obstacle in my paths.

I seriously salute to all those who have been blogging regularly, those who started like me, were amature but became professional and  have got good following. I respect them and envy them.

I wonder what drives you guys. Teach me??

Ooo Heaven is a place on earth

Sid and Irv are business partners. They make a deal that whichever one dies first will contact the living one from the afterlife. So Irv dies. Sid doesn’t hear from him for about a year, figures there is no afterlife. Then one day he gets a call. It’s Irv. ‘So there is an afterlife! What’s it like?’ Sid asks. ‘Well, I sleep very late. I get up, have a big breakfast. Then I have sex, lots of sex. Then I go back to sleep, but I get up for lunch, have a big lunch. Have some more sex, take a nap. Huge dinner. More sex. Go to sleep and wake up the next day.’ ‘Oh, my God,’ says Sid. ‘So that’s what heaven is like?’ ‘Oh no,’ says Irv. ‘I’m not in heaven. I’m a bear in Yellowstone Park.’

It’s the World Cup Final, and a man makes his way to his seat right next to the pitch. He sits down, noticing that the seat next to him is empty. He leans over and asks his neighbour if someone will be sitting there. ‘No,’ says the neighbour. ‘The seat is empty.’ ‘This is incredible,’ said the man. ‘Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the Final and not use it?’ The neighbour says, ‘Well actually the seat belongs to me. I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first World Cup Final we haven’t been to together since we got married.’ ‘Oh, I’m so sorry to hear that. That’s terrible….But couldn’t you find someone else, a friend, relative or even a neighbour to take her seat?’ The man shakes his head. ‘No,’ he says. ‘They’re all at the funeral.’

The Devil’s in the details – This one z my favourite! 😉

A guy dies and is sent to hell. Satan meets him, shows him doors to three rooms, and says he must choose one to spend eternity in. In the first room, people are standing in dirt up to their necks. The guy says, ‘No, let me see the next room.’ In the second room, people are standing in dirt up to their noses. Guy says no again. Finally Satan opens the third room. People are standing with dirt up to their knees, drinking coffee and eating pastries. The guy says, ‘I pick this room.’ Satan says Ok and starts to leave, and the guy wades in and starts pouring some coffee. On the way out Satan yells, ‘OK, coffee break’s over. Everyone back on your heads!’

Kid vs barber

A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer. ‘This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it you.’ The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, ‘Which do you want, son?’ The boy takes the quarters and leaves. ‘What did I tell you?’ said the barber. ‘That kid never learns!’ Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store. ‘Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?’ The boy licked his cone and replied, ‘Because the day I take the dollar, the game is over!’

And here I’m listing some of the health benefits of laughing and you ll not be able to stop yourselves from laughing!

1. LOWERS BLOOD PRESSURE

People who lower their blood pressure, even those who start at normal levels, will reduce their risk of stroke and heart attack. So grab the Sunday paper, flip to the funny pages, and enjoy your laughter medicine. laughter-wellness-benefits-emotional-health

2. REDUCES STRESS HORMONE LEVELS

By reducing the level of stress hormones, you’re simultaneously cutting the anxiety and stress that impacts your body. Additionally, the reduction of stress hormones may result in higher immune system performance. Just think: Laughing along as a co-worker tells a funny joke can relieve some of the day’s stress and help you reap the health benefits of laughter. images

3. WORKS YOUR ABS

One of the benefits of laughter is that it can help you tone your abs. When you are laughing, the muscles in your stomach expand and contract, similar to when you intentionally exercise your abs. Meanwhile, the muscles you are not using to laugh are getting an opportunity to relax. Add laughter to your ab routine and make getting a toned tummy more enjoyable.

4. IMPROVES CARDIAC HEALTH

Laughter is a great cardio workout, especially for those who are incapable of doing other physical activity due to injury or illness. It gets your heart pumping and burns a similar amount of calories per hour as walking at a slow to moderate pace. So, laugh your heart into health.

5. BOOSTS T-CELLS

T-cells are specialized immune system cells just waiting in your body for activation. When you laugh, you activate T-cells that immediately begin to help you fight off sickness. Next time you feel a cold coming on, add chuckling to your illness prevention plan. benefitsof-laughing

6. TRIGGERS THE RELEASE OF ENDORPHINS

Endorphins are the body’s natural painkillers. By laughing, you can release endorphins, which can help ease chronic pain and make you feel good all over.

7. PRODUCES A GENERAL SENSE OF WELL-BEING

Laughter can increase your overall sense of well-being. Doctors have found that people who have a positive outlook on life tend to fight diseases better than people who tend to be more negative. So smile, laugh, and live longer!

 

Now, Here you go with some interesting facts about laughing 68b7c78708051ea8e0a2c43e979c88ea

  •  We laugh up to 30 times more when we are in the company of others than when we are by ourselves. When they say that laughter is contagious, they were really right!
  • Frequent and whole-hearted laughter actually helps your body to fight off harmful diseases. By altering the levels of cortisol in your body, laughing lowers our levels of stress and fights off things that might be harmful to us.images
  •  Laughing is a pretty good workout! When you laugh, you are strengthening muscles in your face, stomach, and diaphragm. It’s no substitute for the gym, but a bit of laughter does do the body good!
  •  Piggy-backing on doing your body good, for every fifteen minutes of solid full-body laughing you do, you can burn up to 40 calories! Dieting? Get to laughing!
  •  Some studies have reported that laughing for at least fifteen minutes can add around 2 days to your overall lifespan. Live long and…laugh!ec184c098f77d58bc457745de9fc243a
  •  Not a coffee drinker? That’s okay! Laughing shortly after you wake up can have similar effects to drinking a cup of coffee. Next time you laugh right after getting up, notice how refreshing it feels.
  •  Humans are not the only beings that laugh. Although less obvious to detect, many animals also experience something similar to laughter. Start watching out for your furry friends – turns out, they might actually be laughing at you after all.
  • In studies that looked at laughter in adults versus children, it was found that kids tend to laugh about three times more than adults. Think like a kid and learn to enjoy yourself a little!
  •  The average person laughs around 13 times a day. Oddly enough, very few of those times are due to a joke or an intentional action. More often, we laugh at chance happenings or things that were never intended to be funny in the first place.
  •  Laughing can create an instant bond between individuals. When you laugh as a group or with someone else, we feel a natural connection to those people and it can alleviate some of the social stress that being around new people might create.
  •  Just as children laugh more than adults, surveys have shown that women tend to laugh slightly more than their male counterparts. Maybe women are really the ones with the senses of humor!488352be6a4ca2f259563441dfb2d95e
  • Studies show that while individuals usually rank “appearance” as very high on their list when looking for a mate, we tend to find individuals who laugh more attractive.
  • Laughter really is contagious. Ever wonder why television shows often play a “laugh track” after a funny moment? Even when we do not see where the source of the laughter is, simply hearing laughter can be contagious.

How about some fun memes? Here you go! 😀 😀

Being Over-sensitive

I don’t know if its a trend all over the world or its just a case in India, but this certainly is not something very appreciable. People here are becoming extra-patriotic and leave no chance to troll those who has an opinion regarding the country.

Snapchat CEO suddenly got very (in)famous in India over his alleged statement regarding the country. Although it has not yet been proved but even if he said so, there was nothing wrong in that. He is a person and a corporate man  and has full right to express his opinions. So what if he is not ready to expand his business in a country which he thinks is poor and actually is poor! “This app is only for rich people,” Spiegel said,  “I don’t want to expand into poor countries like India and Spain.”

People in mass started trolling him on social networks and too many Indians even uninstalled the app to express their anger over his remark. This protest went too far and Snapchat had to issue several official statements, denying “Poor India” remark.

Something similar happened a few years ago, when Maria Sharapova had to face the wrath of Indian cricket fans given her non familiarity with the Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar. She was heavily trolled on Twitter just because she was not knowing about this player of a game which is played in some 10 or 12 countries. And this keeps happening every other day where a celebrity gets heavily trolled for his/her opinions.

People here have become over sensitive and have no ears for any criticism or even a simple fact stating some harsh truth. Wish we could get a little mature and stop paying extra-attention to silly things and work hard for a country prosperous enough to not attract unwanted remarks.

JAI HIND 🙂
