21.12.2012: Am I going to Die?




Life & death is unpredictable- as a maxim is; but nothing is precluded from the intellectual minds of this 21st century to turn it into a possibility.  Here we are, predicting the demolition of our very own world- & that’s on: 21-december-2012! ;) Lol! J :D

It’s been in the news that there is no calendar after this particular date, so the world is going to sign off. But, our astrologers are smarter who are all there set with their predictions for 2013- according to the zodiac signs. So, have you checked if you have any catastrophe on the store? ;)

Well, I don’t go with the horoscopes, & life is unpredictable-as I believe, so just publishing this post as a memoir if I would be no more. And, if am all there exchanging my thoughts with you- just Laugh Out Loud  :D 

Terrorists/Talibanis should be craving for this doomsday to happen, as their sole purpose is just to murder the lives of human beings, because monsters don’t live et al. And, Ajmal Kasab must be smirking over the gesture of treatment he had received till his death. So what the hell, if he was hanged, everybody is now being queued up for the same.

There is another maxim that one has to reap the thorns for their sins on this earth. But, Delhi Bus Gang Rapists are still alive; in fact, our government is still not done with its verdict that how these monsters are going to repent. And, I’m too young to be counted on this pipeline coz my sin pot is still not even halfway to get full (mere paap ka ghada bharne mein time hai-coz I’m a good girl,hahaha…. ..). So!? 

Well, I’m also wondering whether Salman Khan’s next upcoming film: Dabanng 2 (yes, it’s releasing here on 21st December 2012-the same doomsday date!) would be able to cross the100 crore mark, or his audience would be regretting the last minute of their life for why they did book the ticket in advance? ;)  Did you buy any ticket yet?

Here, most of us are all set with our plans for the celebrations of Christmas & New Year. Are you? Wait! Hold for a day, & let the doom pass away. Get confirmed, & then organize your plans, so that you should not to have to repent the last minute of your life. It’s my humble request & an advice too.

Signing off!

Take care! Please, let me know, if you are still alive  ;) with date & time.

Liebster Blog Award


Liebster Blog Award is an award that is given by the Blogging community to new upcoming & deserving bloggers who have few readers, to motivate the writing bug in them.


It’s a great pleasure receiving this honour on the trajectory of “Exploring Innerself”, at least for me where someone, as here Sasikumar-who blogs at “The Beginner”- thinks me a deserving one (Liebster means ‘dearest/favourite’ in German). So, thank you Sasikumar for giving this prestigious award.

 

Here are the details on receiving this award:
  1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
  2. Answer the questions that the nominator sets for you, plus create 11 questions for the people you nominated.
  3. Choose 11 deserving bloggers & link them.
  4. Go to their blogs & inform them about this.
  5. No tag backs.


Now, 11 things about me:

  1. I believe God keeps conspiring & giving us clue to explore the real ‘we’. Only we have to get the message.
  2. Writing is my passion, it makes me feel bliss.
  3. I love Maggi, rasmalai, & pizza; in fact, I am a big foodie.
  4. I believe in yoga, & not gym.
  5. My physique keeps fluctuating from fab to flab to fab. ;)
  6. I always pray that no girl should get raped. If God has to bring difficulties in her life to make her stronger it should be some other way, but not rape.
  7. I am a very sensitive & emotional girl, but a strong person too.
  8. I believe in forgiveness, apology, & fighting back too.
  9. I believe people & their views get changed. It’s just that: they were ignorant before & now they are in a learning phase.
  10. I am a straight-forward person, & I used to hate liars.
  11. But, now I am less of a stereotype, & have learned to forgive & forget.


Answers to the questions asked by my friend, Sasikumar:

1. Describe yourself in one line.
    
I am a learner who believes learning at every phase of life.                              

2. Why do you blog?

It makes me relieved out of inhibitions, & makes me feel bliss.

3. What is your aim?

To get the best writer in me.

4. If you have a Super power, what will you do?

I’ll bring equality in the genes of both genders, so that no one could overpower other; & no girl suffers rape.

5. One person whom, you want to be with all your life, why? (Not parents, lover, & children.)

My little sister, because I love her.

6. The person whom you miss desperately, why?

My friend- Shruti. I don’t know why, I am just missing her!

7. Most memorable moment in your life.

Once I went in a restaurant with my Di (I was a school student then!) & waiter served spring-rolls on the table. I just put the hot roll on my mouth whilst the waiter was standing just beside me. I felt like: ‘Gooooo, please, so that I could pull it out of my mouth!’  I could never forget that moment. J

8. Social-networking in your view.

You have the power to use it in either your favour, or mould it to bring the distractions in your life. At the end, it’s your choice!

9. Do you believe in love at first sight, if no-why?

I don’t believe in love at first sight, because people are manipulative these days.

10. One thing you like to change about yourself.

Anger management. ;)

11. Your views on my blog.

It’s a randomly put down of thoughts. I liked the Cinderella story.


I would like to nominate the following bloggers:

  1. Ravindra Rajput- Direct Dil Se


I thought of granting it to Panchali, Shivya Nath, Deepak Kripal, & others too, but they already have many followers. I think I am reading all blessed people, Lol!! ;) So, if you people go through this post, you may answer 'What you think of me & my blog?'. ;)

I would add other deserving bloggers- who have few followers- later as I would get them in contact.



I would like to ask these 11 questions to them:

  1. What is your one best & one negative quality?

Letter to the Inner Voice



To,
      Inner Voice
      
It’s being said that you are always beautiful, so do I need to get formal & ask you if you are hale & hearty? Every Shakespeare keeps advising to listening one’s inner voice (Oho, blushing!) as it makes one being true to oneself & brings proximity towards God. The Inner Voice is always true & paves the way for true pleasure & happiness.

Having a fervor to explore something new, brought me into this blogging world where I realized (& yes, it’s just because of ‘you’!) that how much I love penning down my thoughts which yearns me for getting into it deeply. It just makes me relieved out of inhibitions. When I execute the cobweb where my feelings were being caged, I feel bliss.

As I inherited this writing bug from my father, besides being brought up in this technically-advanced world, I found my way to cherish the beauty of letters. When my elder sister migrated to a new city for job, I commenced sending her greeting cards on her each birthday while penning down my thoughts onto it which makes her smile &, she keeps her eye on the door for the courier. I could either SMS or e-mail her, but that wouldn’t guarantee a smile on her face which I delineate through a smiley on the back of the card.   

Well! I have written this letter to express gratitude to ‘you’ for letting me know the raison d’etre of mine, whenever there was an aberration. I don’t know if this is a digital letter or an Aerogram to my fellow bloggers, but for me it’s an oblation to the auspicious ‘one’. I know you are always in me, but often it takes distances to cover up that one single route to truth. I pray that I always get to you early.


Yours truly,
Oddball

My Dream Girl!





Albeit, I mean a chatter-box,
but her charisma makes me feel; even I don’t know how to talk.
She exudes confidence with her style of walking,
but don’t know why mine always gets gawky.

Her benevolence makes her more beautiful,
I don’t know even how to get dutiful.
She doesn’t even let a grimness shatter someone,
then how could I flatter her.

I know she is not a chauvinistic,
but don’t know if her family would give me a kick.
I don’t want to make a hash of her life,
but promise to fondle her day & night.

She doesn’t hobnob with everyone,
it gives me a doubt, if I am ‘Someone’.
I gathered my valor to give a shot
&, babbled until she made me stop.

Her three beautiful words froze me,
but her laughter broke the silence, & amazed me.
My Dream Girl is now mine,
I pray, our bond would always shine.

Being Solitary!





It’s not been a single day,
when you weren’t in my pray.
Life has unfolded many curves
&, placed me on different turfs.

I might not roam everyday,
but my soul keeps sway.
My heart screams for you,
it dreams, day & night, only you!

I don’t cherish any fest around,
when you are not surround.
You might be thinking it my chagrin,
but it’s painful to live with such a din.

I might have touched the peak,
but all that seem such a bleak.
Day & night, all seem alike,
when you aren’t at sight.

One shopping experience which drove me crazy!



Everyone loves gifts. Albeit, we don’t ask for the same but somewhere we just wish to get it from our loved ones. And, it excites us every time! Gifts drive everyone crazy & one gets crazier when they have to gift the ‘one’ someone!

Thoughts which keep the mind wallowing in are- how your loved ones would react to, whether they would like it, is it really worth of keep, & blah blah blah ......................

But, one thing which makes one bother much more than any thought is- does it give a replica of our miser attitude? Sometimes, we are just short of money but want to gift our loved ones something which would make them feel loved, and doesn’t give them a thought of its cheapness.

Albeit, every time when I have to bestow someone with largesse, my forehead lines protrude-kya doon??? But, this year when my younger sister birthday came in July, I found myself, indeed, helpless!

My relationship with my younger sister is just like a Tom & Jerry Cartoon Show. There are usual fights, then a documentary show where just silence & gestures play a substantial role, and then our love toward each other which is blissful- where everyone just wants to be a part of it.

So, we had a fight a week before her birthday & somehow, we patched up only to go into another one just a day before her birthday. Though, I keep pondering what to gift her on her every birthday but there is always a tendency to have a second choice-in case, if I won’t get the first choice or if it would not be the best one to offer. Because, we had a fight, there was more pressure this time. Her coaching classes were getting cancelled every time & she was all there in home to get my surprise packed for her. It was just her birth-day when I went to have her gift. I went mall to mall but nothing made me feel to offer which also suited my pocket. I am not a miser, but I was just short of money! Finally, I took a back turn to a mall which I visited first. I went Globus, finally to get her bangles. She loves them! I loved just two of the bangles amongst them,  & got baffled with making choice between them-which one to offer. Both were pretty, but one was tagged slightly above the price I could pay for. Finally, I chose the cheaper one (but, it was not so cheap- if you are aware of the brand Globus!).

Because, we had a fight, I wanted to have a patch up before her birthday. I, just, wanted to let her get that I had bought the gift for her. I wanted to get her know. I was pretending to make endeavors to keep her gift a secret from her, but nothing seemed to be working out. Usually, we gift during the cake-cutting ceremony; but this time I was just short of patience. At midnight, when usually I wish her birthday with just kisses & hugs; this time I gifted the bangle too. And, it just made my day (Oops, night!), when she told that she was just wishing to get the ‘same’ bangle when she went with her friends the same Globus showroom. Ahh,............I felt grateful to God that I was short of money!
Well! Now, you won’t have to go through this craziness all thanks to Badhai-an online shopping experience which makes it easy for you, to gift your loved ones, with just a single click.
