Once out of many few days try to pen down some words on a piece of paper. Let those days compel your emotions to write. Be touched by sadness every once in a while yet live happy every second, wonder what life was, is, should be, could be, would be and wonder so once everyday. See pity and help it grow out of itself, see innocence and mould it into strength and power. Look at life from a different perspective everyday as you live it and pen it all down, for there is so much to it when its yours and so much more when its someone else’s. Write it down and see how a pen and a paper bridge the distance between your thoughts and words. Don’t look for perfect words, make moments perfect instead and define them in words which slip right through your thoughts. Live a little big, do a lot of happy, enlighten your vision and help it make way into your subconscious thereby living an artwork in your dreams and learn how closed eyes lead you to a more beautiful world of possibilities. Pen it all down, express it to yourself to live it all over again. Express it to the world making it a better place to live in. Let your emotions flow on a piece of paper and discover yourself, discover this world, discover the flaws and invent words as your tool to mend them. Mend those flaws, mend yourself, mend this world with words and write it down all over again.
Haven’t blogged about anything since so long. Either I was running out of ideas and topics or was running out of interesting events. Actually, it was both! But while I was wondering what to blog about, I didn’t realize that many new things had happened and were happening around me. Normal new things though. My first job interview,the first new thing, which got me selected for the second round of interview. But I rejected it since It didn’t feel right. Although, a job in a corporate company was my dream like those of the graduates who’d kill to be in my shoes (after all I have an awesome collection :P). But I am yet to be a graduate so enjoying college life while I can seemed like a better idea. Strange, isn’t it? how life ends up taking the unlikeliest turns. Well, the second best thing I realized is that reading can transform you into a total different person at once. Or, to be precise, it can bring out the real you. That’s what reading has done to me. After reading a few Romance fictions, namely “Ofcourse I love you!”, ” Oh yes!! I am single”, “She broke up, I didn’t!” and “If it’s not forever!” by Indian author Durjoy Datta, my perspective towards many things have changed, strongly. Be it a romantic fiction or an Autobiography by A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, a book goes on to teach you more than what it consists of. Or so I have learned. The third best new thing that happened was attending a book launch for the first time. It might not be a big deal but it was for me since I am obsessed with reading and attending book launches will only make me better. So, this new Indian author, named Anjali Kirpalani, launched her first book ‘Never Say Never” which is about a girl named Nikita Kumar, 25, who is unemployed and unmarried; an unemployed Indian woman isn’t a big deal but an unmarried Indian woman can be a reason for unrest in the world, believe it or not! Anyways, the story is followed by Nikita’s boring and hopeless life which she tends to make otherwise by setting a few resolutions about things she’ll never do. But life has some surprising plans for Nikita and she ends up doing things that she never planned on doing; in short she breaks her resolutions (well, we all end up breaking ours, don’t we?) So overall the book launch was a nice experience. Celebrity columnist and Author Nisha Jamwal appeared as a guest for the launch.
Also, I got my first edition signed by the author herself (yaaayyyy!). Henceforth my resolution for life is that I am gonna attend every book launch which I possibly can. Who knows, I might as well end up launching my own book few years from now 😉
Now I know what Fear is.
How scary is this feeling of ‘E’nvy that takes us away from happiness and from the people who make us happy. Human nature it is though, wanting to have something that others have too. But envy too can play a good part if we are clear about what we want. How? Well Bill Gates has what not? But he isn’t our relative neither is he like those people we know around us, so being envious of Bill Gates….that would be senseless. But what if our best friend, whom we need at the moment, is busy preparing for an annual function at college or is having some fun time with family? Obviously we have other options rather than just a best friend but what if they too are busy? Now that’s where envy is good. Sitting at home winding up some sorta mess while others have fun is a situation which makes us think “why me?” But it can also be a situation which can make us think “why not me??” If we really want to be a part of the happiness that others are experiencing then we’ve gotta take it by involving ourselves in it rather than wanting it to come with an invite and get us involved. As they say, “opportunities don’t come, you’ve to take them.” So when happiness is any where near us then we must grasp it and keep it ‘with’ us. Next time we feel envious of someone being happy even when they know we need them then we’ve just gotta mould it into an opportunity be a part of that happiness rather than mourning over not having it. There.

“A man will never love you or treat you as well as a store. If a man doesn’t fit, you can’t exchange him seven days later for a gorgeous cashmere sweater. And a store always smells good. A store can awaken a lust for things you never even knew you needed. And when your fingers first grasp those shiny, new bags…”
― Sophie Kinsella, Confessions of a Shopaholic
That moment when you realize this beautiful truth of life and take a deep breath of satisfaction for there are numerous shopping stores that’ll wipe your sorrows if not for a guy. Colorful clothes, bags, accessories and heels, which merely in your imagination make you look so beautiful and confident and different, wonder what’d reality feel like
