Imperfections ...

What are we today. A little less money , a little less happiness , a little less friend , a little less love, a little less sport. Is it . If you reading this and find even a single one true. Think . Once more , is it same .Yes , little less money ... dont compare yourself with anyone else. Compare it with yourself. And when you do that lets move a year back. 
Statuary warning : If your answer is no for all , Great. The article is THE END here. But if you are a little less yourself now, read on .
So little less money . How much more you wanted. Have you thought what is that figure which will make you smile. a million dollars, that is 5 crore indian rupees. What will you do then , think about it . A Big Car (get a loan dear) , a lavish house ( or home you still have) , the hunger goes on. 
Rewind Time : Go back to school days. What you had then. Nothing. Your parents or near-dear ones earned for you and you studied hard. You were happy then. What happened when you got a extra green bill for the Diwali sweets , or candy on hot summer night walking by the home. Then you did not care for these. I dont say you should not think about those things, but there is no reason to be sad if you dont have those. Plan pursposefully. Set goals , achieve them. make a backup plan. You dont become Bill Gates overnight. People tend to start late. Being happy is the the key , not being rich. Be sufficient. Still not contented.  Lets plan. 
Do you have a bank balance. If yes , then skip to happiness section. Invest the money , money makes more. The money in safe is degrading , put in fixed deposit if you have surplous. Now if you dont have, get a paper and pen out. make a future report. How much you earn , and how much you save. You will get a realistic approach of when you will have a bank balance . So plan. Dont be sad. 
A little less happiness .... What happened boss. Think of golden time when you scored a sole goal in a classroom match, of an untiring hundred in book cricket , an undefeated stretch of 15 games in Zero Katta , a win in Ludo , reaching the top in Snake n Ladder from that lucky number 21, and then getting back to 10 from number 99, think of small things. Think of friends . Think of me . We like others are always there. I might fade in light , look upto your brothers and parents. Blood is blood , and happiness is just there. We dont search for it , but just as the dark cloud would shield the sun from us , and make the day rainy, or there can be a bigger eclipse. The day appears night, dont let it stay. It will go off in a second, try not to look directly. Believe in yourself. Its a good thing to believe , to believe that you can, because when you start believing , you start planning , and start to learn and find ways. Happiness comes back in small packets in big way. When you start finding those packets , you radiate more energy than you think of . 
You know what is the best mantra of smiling. Think of friends who always were , but you left them enroute because of any reason. When you will call them , they will smile. Old friends never forget, and with them you re-live the smiles you smiled with them. Find school friends , college friends , or just friends. Think how they helped you  , and you helped them when it needed the most. think of those bunking lectures , those failed exams, those night before exams , those holis and those diwali ... now smile plz. 
Wanna read more ... gimme some time and some comments to carry on ... and when you do that , just smile

My pillar My luck (touchwood)

when i think of her , few hair flew across her face. She put a hand towards her face and try to wave off them, but then left carelessly to fly around. I wondered it is a style statement or just to tell the world , the carefree attitude she carries, as if unpeturbed by the world around. I dont know pal , what she thinks for the world , but in this world i do think of her. Whenever i am out in big malls, and in sections of her style, i remember her. Her smiles , seeing the price tag and saying, "Areee nahi chaiye, bada mehnga hai" , or running across the mall , and getting a perfect Tee for me. Her enthusiasm and charm in each and every thing she said or do was just so undefeated. Her accent in typical punjabi style where she grew and wanted to go when finished her training. I dont know what made her get to Bangalore , but i had known it a year ago when she was to come to Bangalore that she will be a very good friend. I had shared so many things with her, like with no one else. She knows all the episode of the girl i liked, and consoled me when i was down. She was a face of life which told me to get up, cheer and start anew. She was always there (and still is) for me whenever i needed her. Most of my big plans had her in them , so originated for her , or by her. She was a dream come true friend (touchwood) anyone will cherish to have. Not only being beautiful, she is one with brains. If you happen to know flawless beauty i am talking about, then you must also know she is blessed with great personality, decency , innocence of a child and hear of gold. She will forgive ,if not forget. She tells me to go and fight in this world. She stands by my decision. She is one in a million friends. 
I wont say i am lucky to have a friend like you , but its God's grace for me to have known her. She has supported me well when one of my very close friend went out with her new found love, and when i was alone and sad. 
This girl has diagnosed many problems of mine, and i moved to BTM. I asked her if I should move in , she said yes. And without thinking a second , i went ahead. She has turned all in gold for me , my US visa was stuck , and when she was back from delhi, she said it will be done. It was. Trust me friend , i dare not say your name , many would believe you to be abstract. An angel of sorts with such qualities dont exist, and i will not disturb the illusion of those. But for those who know me , know you as a reality . I am sure you wont change , i believe in you. And as you always have done , keep my belief intact . 

The building blocks

It has been a long time in this world , 25 years done. Long time , but i am sure i learnt most in first five years then in next twenty. Still i dont remember anything from that. Today i write words and sentences in English , but when did i learnt them. My mom tells me , i did my ABCD at age of 2 , and numbers at 3. I started making sentences at 4 and by 5 i was giving oral exams. 
I now know love , and my friends think i know what is friendship, but i dont think i will be anywhere near to what my parents did. Selfless love to make me what i am today. 
I run on streets , drive bikes and have ability to stop. I sense danger , and i interpret love in its pure form , these came when i started tricycling. As Newton did an intgration over a period, so did we. I grew from 5 to 25 , and i saw many things. Broken bones , laughing friends , love , heart-break, friends , not so friends , politics , conspiracy , envy and many shades of life which tell us to learn. We opt most of the times to go with the emotions and not learn from it. we should start doing it . 
Lets start with basic thing :
 Never Expect . all know , but a few do. The greatest pleasure comes when u dont expect , and you get something. Its depression when you expect and dont get it in desired form ,and devastating when you dont get after expecting. 
Dont Lie ::::: Never Lie in frienship ,in relations , for people you care , and otherwise. Most of the close friendships die because of this. If u need to lie , then something is wrong in the friendship. Dont be afraid to tell the truth, things can always work out. Remember: People who matter dont mind , and people who mind dont matter . 
Love : Love all your friends , and if you develop feeling towards a particular friend , be bold and tell it. Most probably the person will refuse, but that is the best way to save a friendship. DONOT , i repeat DONOT forget your other friends if the person agrees to your love. And if the feelings are not reciprocated, love as a friend. 
Sacrifice : the last bite of a meal is shared , give away the last chip from a Lays packet, save last drop of water from the last bottle in a trip, make a cup of tea in middle of night. Trust me , the last chip wont fill your tummy as much as the love would once the other person understands. the thirst will go unquenched if you drink the last drop. 
Radiate : Make the positive vibes, be ready for friends forever . They teased a girl , principal coming.. stand by them. Make your friends believe in you , and never break it .
Above all , be a sport always. Trust me , a lost friend is "The Lost World". I have lost many , and as you read the heading of my blog , its for those Lost Worlds , i lost while gaining all these experineces.
