a tuesday thought...


"sometimes, im walking on a rainbow all safe and secure and yet suddenly i find a gust of wind hitting me with memories of the storm that has long passed by...

and as my tear brimmed eyes helplessly notice the splinters of my broken soul still flying in the air, i wonder why i cant enjoy the journey even amidst the clouds----is it because the storm which preceeded it was wayy too strong or is it that the rainbow i am walking on is wayy too weak!!"

sometimes....

its funny how things are so comfortable when simple..wonder how and when life changes without any warning...
sometimes, complications set in even if we promise to keep them away..
sometimes time makes relationships grow weaker instead of making them grow stronger...
sometimes we have to rely on 'life archives' to get us smiling...
sometimes expectations raise their ugly heads and ruin things for ever...
sometimes life melts down the tough exterior we put up to the world, baring our souls to that one special someone and things dont remain the same anymore...
sometimes we wonder how we could give in so easily...
sometimes the toughest of hearts fail to resist...
sometimes the most stubborn mind refuses to understand...
and then thanks to the conflict, there arises a new complication!!

really, some things are best when kept simple!
but most often, realisations come hand in hand only with complications....

a simple life does not introspect...
a simple life does not realise...
a simple life does not learn...
a simple life though uncomplicated, is a life in vain---cos u can never get about realising how 'strong' you actually are!! :)

the haunting melody rules my mind again....

"Kahin kahin se har chehra
Tum jaisa lagta hai
Tumko bhool na paayenge hum
Aisa lagta hai, aisa lagta hai

Aisa bhi ek rang hai,
Aisa bhi ek rang hai
Jo karta hai baatein bhi
Jo bhi isko pehn le
Voh apna sa lagta hai
Tumko bhool na paayenge hum
Aisa lagta hai
Kahin kahin se har chehra
Tum jaisa lagta hai
Tumko bhool na paayenge hum
Aisa lagta hai, aisa lagta hai


Aur to sab kuch theek hai lekin
Kabhi kabhi yunhi chalta phirta shaher
Achaanak, achaanak tanha lagta hai
Tumko bhool na paayenge hum
Aisa lagta hai
Kahin kahin se har chehra
Tum jaisa lagta hai
Tumko bhool na paayenge hum
Aisa lagta hai, aisa lagta hai

Ab bhi yun milte hain humse phool chameli
Jaise inse apna koi
jaise inse apna koi,
Rishta lagta hai....
Tumko bhool na paayenge hum
Aisa lagta hai
Kahin kahin se har chehra
Tum jaisa lagta hai
Tumko bhool na paayenge hum
Aisa lagta hai,
aisa lagtaa hain...."

straight from the 'thinking bag'....

something which disrupts your self-respect cannot be treated lightly all the time--because soon enough the 'joke' will not seem funny to you anymore and it will be hell tough convincing people to stop laughing then...

self-humiliation is suicide!!

weighing the options....

NOTHING MAKES SENSE!
i know the truth!
yet i believe a lie...

i know a reality!
yet i nurture a dream...

i know there is an end!
yet i wish for a beginning...

i know its stupid!
yet something seems perfect...

hmm...which do u think is better----
slamming the door behind you startling everyone around with the sudden decision that ur leaving?
OR
retracing your steps gradually one at a time till a point where u just dissapear from the scene hoping nobody would notice?
which option would hurt the 'people who matter to me' less?
which option would hurt the 'people for whom i matter' less?
and last but not the least, which option would hurt 'me' less?
and then again, should i be thinking of the hurt it will cause when i know that that is the main reason which makes me want to run back OR should i just run away accepting that it is inevitable?!!


my life is a stage and im that bad actor who has always preferred being in the audience..so why is that all of a sudden, im feeling helpless with the fact that ive just got to sit here doing nothing but watch the drama as it unfolds?

do i walk out of the hall at the risk of being called an attention-seeker or would u please wake me up once the show is over??

the truth about martians and venutians...

WARNING: the below post is written in a sheer state of 'dvd-inspired' lurrveee which is not necessarily true in all cases...so this is just to say we are not to be held responsible for any break-up/arguement/tiff which may occur on reading this post...
because like we all know, this is just the RULE! but u see there are also these rare EXCEPTIONS! ;)




"Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, Every story we're told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending we don't learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don't, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn't include a guy, maybe... it's you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is... just... moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope."
---'Gigi' (he's just not that into you)



yeps ive just finished watching 'he's just not that into you' with the girls and we collectively came to a common conclusion that this one did make some sense unlike the cliched lived-happily-ever-after-chickflicks...

some parts in the flick help clear confusion..some help in giving a reality check by interpreting signs which we girls are likely to overlook or misinterpret, being the emotional fools we often tend to be...some point to the light at the end of the tunnel while some just warn us that it (the light u saw) could just be the train heading towards you...
and then there were those which just make u nod your head in agreement..

all in all, i think all 'single' and 'almost-single' and 'so-not-single' venutians must watch this one (in short--all the ladies should watch this one if they havent already) and i bet it'd leave you wishing u'd watched it earlier!!

cheers!


P.S: as for curious martians who are feeling neglected after reading this post, maybe u guys can watch it too...
your feedback is always welcome
psst!! no worries..we wont tell anyone u watch chickflicks..promise! *makes a straight face*

life destiny and everything...

the colours of the pretty rainbow...
the fragrance of the fresh bloomed flowers...
the vastness of the clear blue skies...
the moisture of the pristine morning dew...
the temptation of seductive molten chocolate...
the mystical blur of the heavy fog...
the romance of the moonlit night...
the golden beam of the morning sun...
the scent of the rain drenched earth...
the purity of innocent love...
the understanding of a deep friendship...
the memories of the nostalgic past...
the faith of heartfelt prayers...
the hope of beautiful dreams...
the mystery of the unpredictable future...
the challenge of the stubborn present...

these are the random 'blessings' life is all about!!

and sometimes, just sometimes for a chosen few, its all about fighting that one hard blow of destiny which tries to throw us off our feet only to make us feel sorry for ourselves so that we crumble in self-pity because we are forced to think we are'nt blessed enough...
but probably it is life's way of teaching us that we gotta pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, change that goddamn stuck-up attitude and move on!!



To end on a cheerful note, here's wishing everyone around a very happy holi! :)

in the words of 'dr grey'...

"At the end of the day, there are some things you just can't help but talk about. Some things we just don't want to hear, and some things we say because we can't be silent any longer. Some things are more than what you say. They're what you do. Some things you say because you have no other choice. Some things you keep to yourself. And not too often, but every now and then, some things simply speak for themselves."

----Dr Meredith (greys anatomy)


UPDATED: here's wishing me and all the other women in and around blogsville a very happy women's day!! :)

truth or dare----"just friends??"

I heard about the 'classic case' yet again, happening in one of my close friend's life----the classic case scenario of two best friends with one of them falling in love with the other---a fine case of unrequited love which leaves one feeling helpless and scarred for life because its only inevitable that the final destination of the journey can be neither on the shores of friendship nor in the sea of love!!
even though i managed to help cheer her up with comforting words (the effect of which im aware cant last forever), i guess somewhere deep within, it did affect me and triggered a chain of deep seated thoughts which ultimately resulted in the piece below...


heartbroken she was,it took jus one blow
to get her trust completely off all men...
those memories haunted her night and day,
people saw them as lovers then...

soulmates she thought they were meant to be,
everything with them went so perfectly right...
confident she was,wanting no assurance ever,
to an unconfessed love, they held on tight...

that very word would hurt her now
she hated 'love' at its mention slight...
the feeling which was supposed to turn life beautiful
was the one responsible for her sorry plight...

that day her dreams had come crashing down,
when she realised she was just a friend...
he told her she had mistaken everything,
and seeked friendship, their feelings to defend...

she stood there with tear brimmed eyes
as he told her she had imagined it all...
shocked she stared with a hurting heart,
she never recovered from the fall!!
she never recovered from the fall!


the only folly worse than mistaking love for friendship is when u mistake friendship for love...

its high time we got you married mr phoenix!! ;)

ive been robbed!!.a brilliant idea was taken away from me while it was still being processed by my brain and bloggerdashboard!!!!!!!!!! :( :(

chandni got there first...read here

and to think i was soo happy (that i even mentioned writing about this in my prev post) to make it to the grand status of 'matchmaker' for one particular mr phoenix..sigh!

now i wonder who leaked out the idea (considering it was known to ONLY the person in question himself)
or chances are more that chandni and i function at the same devilish frequency..ahaa!!
but neverthless CHANDDDUUUUU...U STOLEEE MYYYY THUNDERRRR! :((

anyways, to make matters more interesting and to add a little more mystery-spice lemme mention here, that all the concerned candidates who send me an email with their details (before sending anything to chandu or the phoenix himself..heehee) will get an added advantage---i will send itsy bitsy pieces of the photo jigsaw puzzle (which on joining together will give u an entire fotu of the forementioned celebrity---ofcourse without his consent since he is extremely sensitive about his photos gaining unwanted attention..yea the guy has got his delusions u see!)
i will see to it that u receive just one piece of the puzzle a week..in the process u can get about knowing mr phoenix better so that at the end of it all, even though u might never get about completing the photo puzzle, u will definitely get about having a complete picture of the incessant chatterbox who can speak on any topic under the sun..
ohh but watch out--in case he gives u the silent treatment and keeps smiling all through the chat, then its definitely not what it seems like---he is certainly NOT impressed!!


please note: 1)copyrights of the above mentioned photo-dramatic idea solely belong to urs truly and any resemblence to similar ideas online or offline---in any book/movie/blog/real-life will be considered as violation of my creativity and stringent action will be taken against!!
thankyou one and all!!
2)i agree chandni has covered almost all the points and done full justice to each though i guess i could have exaggerated them a little more--such that everyone would see through the lie..heehee (so what?? 'veeru' ultimately got basanti dint he??)
3)adjectives used by the celebrity in question when asked for the criteria included words like 'pataka' 'bewdi' etc etc.when expressed shock, he further goes to explain that 'pataka' need not necessarily mean the 'rakhi sawant' 'angelina jolie' type though such candidates might be given extra preference...
4)electronic gf's, long distance communications strictly not allowed on suggestion of his boss and coworkers who think that he spends too much time on the pc already and still does not manage to meet deadlines..so they dread to even imagine what it would be like if the pc would have to be the mediator of lurrrveeee....
the phoenix though is scared of writing in wrong windows and hence does not want to disrupt his love life with any sorta side-confusion..ahem!
5)if urs truly is not heard of after this post or just incase u hear about any terrible news of me being murdered without a trace, u know whom to direct the police to dont you??
ofcourse RAKHI SAWANT!! what were u thinking----'the phoenix'????? nawwww..he would'nt hurt a fly!!
but then again, im human *gulp*

neverthless till we are alive and kicking,
cheers!! :D :D
