Its about time life got back to being crazy

More often than not, while going through life, we come across situations that make us think and reconsider the way we've been living life soo far..Just about trying to maintain that illusion of sanity so we can look "normal" to the world.
And thats when one stops to question...who am I trying to impress anyway??Do these people really matter?? Come to think of it, theres no such body keeping a record of the sane and insane things we do in a day..Is anyone going to remember if I broke that glass or if i put loud music in my car and drove to workplace??
Well not really!! And so theres a part of life that one can always start to crazy-up, think outside the box, do all we can to make our crazy dreams a reality...and to be able to ask oneself..Am i crazy enough to trust myself when the whole world thinks im a little nuts..
And i know the crazy things I'd like to do and still feel absolutely fine about them later...
  • dance in the moonlight
  • get super drunk and kiss a random hot stranger
  • sneak out from my house and spend the rest of the night with frnds...
  • colour my room with crayons and make funny faces
  • laugh until the water comes out of my nose
  • go on a drive alone at 3 in the night and speed on the highway
  • call my ex and tell him how i think he could be gay
  • ho hitchhiking with richa, see the world, live on the road, backpacker style
  • blow bubbles in the bathtub
  • whistle and clap in a movie hall
  • make all my friends sing happy birthday to me in a typical classroom style..the way we used to in school
  • live in a tree house with rushi..on a eucalyptus tree :-P
  • watch a scary movie the night
  • get blue and pink streaks in my hair
and ofcourse a few others that i wont be mentioning here :-P

Opinions I have changed...

I have been mulling over this for quite sometime now. As a kid I used to wonder what growing up would be like, imagining myself in my teens and then twenties...And I had my own set of interpretations of facts and life in general...Life was bitsy yet attractive, cheerful and whopeeee..I was my favorite!!

Then I grew up!!! Turning 23 in two months time...And Life has been crazy! Have been through a series of opinion shifts..And a lot of the opinions ive had earlier have reversed..

  • The notion that a dentists clinic was 'hell served on a chair'...Though i never had serious dental issues, my sis has gone through shit as far as visiting a dentist is concerned. Shes been a brave kid, but watching her sit through all the appointments and especially the sucker pain...used to give me nightmares!!!lol..Did I say m a DENTIST myself now..This is the weirdest thing that could have happened..but am sort of living with it..and enjoying it nightmares to lil kids??adults too??Its not as bad as it was then..

  • U MUST MUST listen to ure mom!! Well..Hell no!!Ego clashes and arguments with moms are totally in..So much so, that I cant get myself to agree on one thing my mom says..

  • Indian wear is for AUNTIES only!!...Since now am officially well into 'Women territory'...managing sarees and salwar kameez are not really an issue anymore..and the wear-a-pair-of-jeans-everywhere-u-go is totally passe!

  • Alcohol???NO WAY!! I dont drink!!lol..And now...Forget it..u know what am going to say anyway..lets go grab a drink!!

  • Girls who ogle at guys...PATHETIC!!!lol..Errrrr...I am pathetic..I am appreciating beauty yaa...

  • EDUCATION...*I want to be a doctor, an engineer when I grow up*...bullshit!!!Its allrite even if I dont have great degrees to back me up..I am smart and the world is my oyster..even if its still enjoying the ride..

  • BE GOOD TO PEOPLE NO MATTER WHAT...seriously?? I dont give a rats ass cos if ure not nice to me, brace ureself for the nasty me!! loads to add on to the list..but thats later..
Have fun growing up!!

Forgive or Forget??

When I think about the people that have come and gone in my life, I have to tell myself that most were there for a reason, even if they werent very nice people, I still had something to learn either from their wrongdoings or the goodness I saw in them. Its stupid to hold on to the idea that they will change or the potential I saw in them. I know that all of us are humans and we do make mistakes, some grave ones too. I also know that one should be forgiven for their mistakes.

Some say "forgive and forget". Others say "forgive but never forget". But I think to forgive and forget is a personal decision that often depends on whether someone can overcome the hurt of an injustice and wrong doing. Sometimes the only healthy way to move forward is to look back at our past and inject forgiveness into it..I mean i totally agree that no matter what path I choose, the act of forgiving is the first step. But I just cant get myself to forget and move on..

Its a lot easier said than done I guess. Personally I believe if I forgive and forget, am sort of approving of the other persons mistake. And I prefer keeping it as a reminder just so I dont get wronged again. Because i have this strange feeling that if we forget, it comes back and gets us someday. Its like giving up the last right to feel hatred, anger atleast, towards the person who hurt you. Whether or not I get closure is irrelevant. Bearing a grudge is obviously destructive and forgiveness does give a sense of peace, but this is just another way to preserve my conscious sanity.

Basically there are a lot of emotions entwined with the act called ' to forgive and forget' . There always will be a doubt in our minds about this..

The Importance of being LAZY..

Its a late Wednesday night, nothing too great about the day, and I am online..and like most of my friends, I too am killing time doing nothing but sipping hot chocolate, updating my status on facebook or text messaging a few people...and in a short while, planning to hibernate and dream!! BUT I sometimes wonder-
What if nothing exists and we are in somebody's dream?? Or better still, what if only that cute guy, the one I really like exists?? Life would be soo much better like that..A virtual world, were things are like the way I want them to be...

Woody Allen once said, "Eternal nothingness is fine if u happen to be dressed for it"...and so I am, dressed for the nothingness to take its toll on me. My mom tells me, "If u weren't soo lazy, u could accomplish a lot of things in life"...And I think to myself "I am going to start being less lazy", but I just get into the same pattern everyday, unintentionally of course...

People call it laziness, a disinclination to any activity, despite having the ability to do it. I call it indolence, it makes my laziness seem classy..A state of bliss, in which the fibres of my body are relaxed in common with the rest of my body and to such a degree that pleasure, pain, love or hatred seem alien to me.

But you know, laziness is not always so harmful..Infact everyone can be loosely classified into 2 groups..There are Intelligent lazy people and Stupid lazy people..
  • Intelligent lazy people: They do things the smart way in order to expend the least effort. They don't rush into things but take their sweet time to think and find the shortest but possibly the best path. And these people usually make good leaders.
  • Stupid lazy people: Stupid lazy people make their places too..Such people are easy to manage, they generally don't take initiatives to act on their own and , given tasks that are not beyond their ability, they'll perform in a predictable, consistent manner.
So a group of Intelligent but lazy people would agree with me that this works almost every single time..If properly harnessed it can accomplish anything and everything. I mean, I am not that kind of girl who begins early enough for my exam preparations but manage to do just fine...still my lazy strategy seems to be kind of weird to the just-in-time-sitting-in the-first-row-of the-class people..cos I know its common to think that success comes with hard work, but I've found the opposite to be true for me.

And so laziness in a nutshell is the mother of efficiency..and all of us need to gain some feeling for, some knowledge of, the differences between distraction and insight, laziness and leisure :-)

Laugh out loud!!!

I love people who make me laugh.I honestly think its the thing I like the most, to laugh.It cures a multitude of ills.Its probably the most important thing in a person.Its the best you can give to the world.To be able to make people laugh.To like extract their sorrows and help them find peace with themselves.I am not particularly good at it.But I can try.

And then in the process there are these endless frail attempts to find humour each passing moment.Every single thing, every single stupid idea,comment, non sensical, sub-intelligent and meaningless sitcoms,a picture a book,playing fashion police,just about anything, appearing or passing by,should have something funny about it...The catch is to humour yourself with it.
There are moments,those happy ones, when you laugh and laugh and laugh till the time you are not sure you want to continue laughing or just stop.The point is no one should be thinking in the midst of laughs.That is the whole point of 'Laugh outloud'...

You’re supposed to lose yourself in such escapades. You’re supposed to let your soul flow with the direction, or rather, lack of direction, when you laugh. You’re supposed to be in fits, or lost in some useless diminished sense.Basically its all senseless.and in the good sense... it's well good non-sense for that spur of the moment, just that moment..Only after a good laugh should you,if at all, try and make sense of what you've been laughing at.
I think
the wellspring of laughter is not happiness, but pain, stress, and suffering.The comic and the tragic,they lie inseparably close, like light and shadow. So we should be thankful for our suffering, for without it there would be nothing to laugh at! When we laugh at our woes, they dissolve, or at least become bearable, so that we arrive at peace and happiness.

I know, I do not practice it myself but i have seen people do it and trust me they are perfectly at peace with their lives and I look up to them for such bravery.They tend to like to laugh at themselves and sometimes at their absurdity.Because when they do so, they disempower all those who would make fun of them and then all those irritating confrontations.They do not laugh because they are happy but they are happy because they laugh.

Thats about it...I'll end on a rant..Laugh and laugh more..speaking tree says its even better than an orgasm!!
P.S...I hope you know laughing releases endophorins,our body's natural painkillers..more potent than an equivalent amount of morphine...
so laugh out loud :-)
bye for now..

Driving Blues!!

Driving on Delhi roads is an art which requires a lot of skill and preparation for some and not soo much skill and preparation for others...Its the closest u'll get to the ultimate experience of a lifetime..And considering its festival season, u'll wonder y they made houses and multi storied apartments for people to live in..they cud well live on d roads, in their cars, while they drive 24*7...In simple terms what u see on delhi roads dese days is POINTLESS WANDERINGS..neways coming back to the ultimate experience, for amateurs and pros still hanging on to d amateur soul, driving on delhi roads requires a few things
  • Good Brakes
  • A good loud, screeching horn and the art of honking every single second while u on the road
  • And lots of Good luck...mind u lots
Imagine ureself in a video an extreme sport or sumthing..u hv to dodge other cars, rickshaws,bikes, stray dogs, cows to get to the next level...And then there are these 'aliens', like some weird mutants, trying to get the hang of d earth and really careful wid dem cos being an earthling ur are absolutely unaware of the turns they take and speeds they hit..The game gets harder at every level..u cud well use ur right of making various gestures wid ur hand to scare off ur competitors..If u happen to brush ur car against ne oda, the game turns into some ninja fight or sumthing only more verbal...I mean aisa lage toh na dat ur in delhi yaa...wats the fun odawise..

Be Careful and maintain distance from the cars and autos which have dese stickers wid 'ferrari', 'ultimate racing' etc pasted on them..Cos having these stickers means u have Super the ability to ignore common sense and drive recklessly...Ferrari literally means u start believing tht ur father owns dem or sumthing and u get to play like a 5 yr old wid his toy car...

Finally more than ur skills and talent, u need a lot of luck and faith in god...well never lose ur entire quota of good luck in things like exams,results and stuff..Keep a handsome amount for when ur on the roads...Esp if u like me and dont knw tht one is not suppose to talk on the phne even on a red light...

good luck wid it!!!
