Species….

December 28, 2008

A lot of times I have lots on my mind that I really want to write about, but I don’t have anything near by where I can jot down those thoughts and then blog them up later. Best is when I am in my shower, I will have ten thousand thoughts flying me by and by the time I am out…my mind is blank. Surely, some research studies said that an individuals mind crosses more than 60,000 thoughts in a day. Its some lean mean machine that we all carry.

imageBut there are really amazing respectful idiots who usually use their mouth without using the machinery that God has so gifted them with. They tend to usually speak with such flair and confidence thinking that the opposite may not really understand and catch their non existent intelligence. When I usually tend to meet such species it makes me wonder how far can they really get away with this. How far can you really go making people believe in something that you are not. Guess, even that becomes their strength and a positive point of acting out – after all even acting is considered as an art in today’s times and has a complete industry dedicated to it.

Another aspect related to such species from Pluto would be that they really live in a complete dream world of their own. A complete make believe world that no one can catch the real them. No one will be able to figure out who they really are. No one will be able to actually measure that depth of the water that they are standing in. The belief that no one can catch them also again pulls them down to another believe that no one again would confront them. It really makes them more confident to be actually be very sure that they will never land themselves in any embarrassing situations where they will be caught off guard.

I can surely say, that some of these species make me think that maybe even I am unconsciously doing certain things that some other people may not like. It just makes you more aware about your own habitat and nature. Something’s may be we need to change in the way we interact with people at times as well. The question is – do we pay attention? Do we think? Are we aware? I ain’t wanna become any specie 🙂

Why We Fail?

December 25, 2008

Failure has been always an intriguing part of our life. What we don’t realize is that we sometimes get so drifted away that we don’t really sit and reflect that there might be just and absolutely JUST that little something that we are doing ourselves that is making us walk on the road to Failure. We get drifted away to not always REFLECT back on our own actions. So why do we fail?

Anything But Fiction – Part II

December 23, 2008

This is a continuation from “Anything But Fiction”.

Life does move on. The feelings do change over a period of time, however they will always leave behind a lingering taste of what she always felt for her soul. How far can she erase the memories, how far can she ever take the effort to try and completely rub out her thoughts of someone who became the reason for life and existence. Some people surely can but it will never be forever. It was after all your soul. Can you ever completely take your own soul and throw it out? The answer to that will be a No.

imageHowever, how far can she also keep a non responsive soul with her as well? Her mind and thoughts have taken over. The thoughts are questioning. The mind is raising a doubt about her soul not responding back with the same sound that she always responded for her soul when it cried. She needs to feel the feelings echoed back to her. She is hungry and starving for it. She needs to be able to trust that her soul is still there for her and still stands for her and not against her. The response needs to be coming back more strongly and consistently. They need to come as the times are not right. There is a distance. Distance raises doubt which starts shaking the monument of Trust right off its base.

Her soul needs a conversation. Her soul needs to rise like a wave to cut off those doubts and thoughts off her mind to be able to tell convince her that it is still alive and feels the same for her. She is waiting to feel alive again. She is waiting …but as time passes by she is also realizing that she can’t hold on to a mere branch of her heart that’s wearing off its strength with every passing day – as below is the valley which in all its glory has a river flowing in with its open arms down under waiting to wash her off as soon as she falls.

Fish for the Soul…

December 22, 2008

Something to Ponder about:

j0303343 The Japanese have a great liking for fresh fish. But the waters close to Japan have not held many fish for decades. So, to feed the Japanese population, fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever. The farther the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring back the fish. The longer it took them to bring back the fish, the staler they grew.


The fish were not fresh and the Japanese did not like the taste. To solve this problem, fishing companies installed freezers on their boats. They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer. However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen fish. And they did not like the taste of frozen fish. The frozen fish brought a lower price. So, fishing companies installed fish tanks. They would catch the fish and stuff them in the tanks, fin to fin. After a little hashing around, the fish stopped moving. They were tired and dull, but alive.


Unfortunately, the Japanese could still taste the difference. Because the fish did not move for days, they lost their fresh-fish taste. The Japanese preferred the lively taste of fresh fish, not sluggish fish. The fishing industry faced an impending crisis! But today, it has got over that crisis and has emerged as one of the most important trades in that country! How did Japanese fishing companies solve this problem? How do they get fresh-tasting fish to Japan?


To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish in the tanks. But now they add a small shark to each tank. The shark eats a few fish, but most of the fish arrive in a very lively state. The fish are challenged and hence are constantly on the move. And they survive and arrive in a healthy state! They command a higher price and are most sought-after. The challenge they face keeps them fresh!


Humans are no different. L. Ron Hubbard observed in the early 1950’s: “Man thrives, oddly enough, only in the presence of a challenging environment.”

George Bernard Shaw said: “Satisfaction is death!”

The Angel Who Passed By…

December 20, 2008

image I met a man the other day. He appreciates life like I have seen no one do it. He has the worst hardships that one can ever imagine. He lost his family in an accident and some really close relations over a period of time. He works really hard and stays alone. He has lot of friends and acquaintances. When I met him, there was this really warm aura about him. He was completely himself and by far you could see the transparency in his personality. He carried a very charismatic smile on his face. The smile that hid his age and any such past events of his life.

He would be in his late forties, when he spoke to people around him, you could see his eyes smiling. I couldn’t resist not noticing certain very stark aspects about him. Here is a man who goes back to an empty home, that same home which he shared with his loved ones once. He still works hard to live and probably take his mind off certain things that he may feel that he is missing out in his life. However, when he meets others, he tends to give out his best side to everyone. He wants to help those who need him, he shakes peoples hands with so much of passion and warmth, he hugs his friends and their family as if it were his own.

I feel his pain, I understand his loneliness but I am amazed that he is a walking and learning inspiration to most of us who have never ending list of things that we don’t have in our life inspite of having everything that this man may have lost out on. Do we really value what we already have? Do we ever take that extra step to tell the already existent people in our life that we so value their presence in our life and what difference it makes to have them around. I guess most of us do not do so. It’s very easy to take these loved ones for granted and keep focusing on the list and people that we would still want in our life.

This man took me over completely not only by his charm and charisma, but by his tryst to live his life for those who need him. He is not a social worker nor runs an NGO, he runs a very successful business and he in that few hours made me reflect on my own life. He made me appreciate all those who are a part of my life It’s amazing how some strangers can just walk into your area of space and just teach you a lesson or two about your own life.

Raunchy Chat & Celebrations Galore.

December 18, 2008

I am again on a nice holiday. Basically for the next nine days no going to work…Yuhooo!! I wanted to get some “Me” time and finally I did get some. I was wondering and looking out for options to what I would be doing in this time. Now, in the past couple of months, it had just been very hectic with one thing after the other in my head to finish. One thing used to get over, the other thing used to pop up in my head.

My head was becoming a vending machine of sorts…pooping out things to go one after the other with out any break. However, no complaints now, I am just breathing normal now. As it is the year end and I am completely in no mood to work hard. Just want to take it easy, step back, enjoy the weather – which is hot according to my standards and basically just chill with friends and catch up with all those who I have been just forever planning to meet.

Now, today was my first day of off, and I was in such high spirits that I logged into this public chat room after ages. Public chat rooms have been always my place to have some fun whenever I am bored and have nothing better to do or simply when I am just in the mood to play a “Brat” to the core. As soon as I logged in with this really raunchy nickname, I started getting private messages which obviously were responding more to my raunchy nickname.

I started off a conversation with this supposedly “Ghajini” who was supposed to be from Delhi and a lawyer. The reason why I actually responded to his private message was as he was the only one who approached with a decent introduction of himself – even though his nick sounded one of those filmy wannabe’s. After the initial introduction, he asked me a question – “What do you think would make a guy look pretty?”

Hah! Now my vending machine started like an AC’s compressor. Seriously, what do you think would make a guy look pretty? Ah well, lets see – a dainty pink frock with frills along with some matching pink lipstick and just throw in a dash of kaajal and a pink eye liner and of course how can we forget the pink rosy cheeks and finally finish it off with a pink bowish ribbon on top of his head.

Mr. Ghajini logged off after that answer! 🙂
