The Glass Theory!

2Life is a glass half full of water. No one’s life is perfect in the world neither for the richest person in the world nor for the poorest person. Someone said money cannot buy happiness but its better to cry in Mercedes than in bicycle. Yet it forget to consider, life could have happier in-spite of having a bicycle! And all of it depends on a glass of water!

In a small journey of life, I have seen while an orphan is sad about having no one in life, many family cribs about wanting to live alone! While poor are sad about no big houses, rich have an issue with having too many houses to manage! Jobless people struggles to get a small job while people with job complains about how hectic and bad their work life is! But among-st all these people there are still few who are happiest! These few people are around you and you never see them sad! They are not the richest people, they are not the people with all the resources available to them, they might even be jobless or orphans or even married! (pun intended). These is because they are not worried about filling the rest of the empty glass, they are happy to see the glass half full!

There are usually 3 kinds of people in this world:

1. The first and most commonly around you are the one who sees the top half of the glass – the empty half! They are constantly so worried about the empty half that they even forget to acknowledge that rest half of the glass is actually full which in times of need is enough to quench the thirst! They miss to celebrate the most moments in life because the thought of emptiness never let them do so!

2. The second and very rare kind of people are those who see the bottom half of the glass – the filled one! In-spite of being aware that the other half is empty, they tend to live in the moment and stays happy for what they have rather than what they don’t. They celebrate everything as if the life is full!

3. And then there are rarest of rare 3rd kind of people. They are aware of both the part of glass. The empty half and the filled half! They enjoy the moment and yet constantly make efforts to fill the rest half of the glass. Difficult to spot but these people do exist. They don’t miss out celebration in worrying about empty half and yet they don’t over celebrate to make sure they make effort to fill the glass completely!

Doesn’t matter what kind of person you are but remember at the end there was a glass with some water in it. Don’t be so worried about the empty part that you end up breaking the glass. On the other side, don’t be so oblivion to the empty part that one day you end up with nothing. Life is too short to complain. Its a journey which when comes to an end there will always be something that will be left or missed. The only thing that would matter is whether you enjoyed the journey, enjoyed the surroundings and captured the moments or missed most of it worrying about how bad the roads were or how you lost the way or about the other passengers! Everyone’s journey is already been decided – the path, the distance, the destination. The only thing left on us to be decided is how we decide to cover and live the distance and greet the destination either with a grin or a grim! The choice is ours! The life is ours! Lets make it count!

Happy Anniversary Wifey!

Dear Wifey,

It’s been a journey of ups and downs. At our best, we enjoyed and lived items out of our bucket list, making memories through our journey. And at our worst, well to be honest, at times even I don’t know how we survived. But yet every time we went down, we came up stronger than before and with a promise to make up for lost time. However, even after an year I still wonder why such a talented, intelligent, smart girl like you is in so much love with a lazy, a bit dumb and lame guy like me. A perfect girl in love with an imperfect guy! Why? The only reason could be that, as people say, love is blind 😝 And I hope it stays this way 😃

You have been my sunshine each day for last one year. Waking up each morning next to you, driving you to your workplace and waiting for that one last look before you get into your building, eagerly waiting to get back to home after work to get warmest of your hugs as if the day have been as long as years of separation, cooking dinner together (well, I know my part of cooking involves just sitting in the kitchen and watching you but still its inspirational for you :P) and then after day long tiredness watching you smiling in your dreams and then you snuggling into my arms. At times it feels as if I am living in dreamland. But these are the times when I can say my realities are better than my dreams!

Yes, I do fight at times, hurt your feelings don’t know how many times in past one year, have made many mistakes but sweetheart, I have and will always love you. I have not been a perfect person and may have been a-husband-with-lot-of-flaws but I promise that I will keep getting better. I am the wine that gets better with age. 😝 Oh this reminds me of how many times a day you have to bear my lame PJ. At least this is what I am good at 😛

So dear Biwiji, for this and all the coming anniversaries, I swear by the old gods and the new, that I will always abide by the “Oath of Love”:

“Night gathers, and now my love begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take you, holds love with no boundary, parents no child. I shall wear the best dress and win all glory. I shall live and die in arms of my love. I will be your light in the darkness. I will be the bearer of love. I will be shield that guards the realms of you. I pledge my life and honor to you, for this night and all the nights to come.”

With lots of love,

Yours forever,

Let’s live before we leave!

Life is a long story with lot of twists, love, pain, emotions, drama! And at some point of time it becomes so complicated that you miss the most important part of it! Your life is about you, you are suppose to be the lead actor in your life story and rest everyone else are the characters which helps you to build your time story! But when you give away your storyline and let other characters to decide how your story is going to be, you lose the plot! You end up being nowhere in your own story!

That’s when you need to flip over the pages, take a pause and take the control of your role. Don’t try to make your role lovable, just make it simple! Don’t try to be someone else and nor force any character of your life story to be you! Let everyone including you grow with time! Because doesn’t matter what you try, how hard you try, its a story and sooner or later, there would an end to it! And the day you close your book, it wouldn’t matter how many characters were there in your book, it wouldn’t matter how those character were but what would matter is whether you lived your story or not! Let’s live before we leave!

Yay! Finally its gonna be my first ever solo trip. Although staying hundreds of miles away from home and having relatives in all the corners of my country, travelling runs through my blood but this is the first time I would be actually travelling to a new place all alone for a leisure trip. 

Never been a person who plans thing, so I am yet to do my homework on where and how to visit. Well, I know how to visit but there lot many places that I am still to decide whether I should try to cover as many places as I can in 48 hours or should I cover a few, putting more time at each of them! Let’s see how it turns out to be!

Excited? Ofcourse. Afraid? Kind off. But whatever it may be its gonna fun! Let’s hope I am gonna make a memory out it! Shimla! Here I come!

Life – Accept it!

The silence of night helps you to find many secrets amongst the darkness. Many a times we keep wondering why such things are even happening to you. Especially, if you have lived a life where you didn’t try to harm anyone intentionally. But then the night makes you realise a every important aspect of life.


If one just learn to accept the failure, and move on to try again next time, rather than crying over that failure, life could have been happier.

If one just accept that not all the dreams come true. Make those pieces of broken dream to create new dreams.

Although a broken dream hurts more than a broken heart, but if the dream is about a heart, it hurts the most! One has to accept the pain and find the strength  amongst that pain!

You cannot get everything and everyone you love. Accept! not everything and everyone is made for you, they have their own life stories which you might not be aware off!

Life is simple, just be honest, accept the failure and defeat, accept that you cannot be perfect! Although, you cannot make everyone happy at all the time, at least make those few happy who you can and when you can!

Life in a nutshell!

Have you ever seen observed a tortoise? It remains, most of the time, in its shell without even peeking out, unless it’s alone or it’s important. As the people around it grow, its time in shell increases. That’s how the introverts are! They spend most of their life in their own nutshell. And no one knows how they are inside that shell, what they have been doing inside, what they have been thinking off or how they feeling out but for the world they are just some worthless to the world outside.

And once you get used to live in a nutshell, you don’t really think of breaking it for anyone ever.

But then someone comes up who starts to understand you. You feel like you are talking your won soul, start opening up yourself, your worst fears to your wildest dream, someone is there to listen to you, encourage you, and support you. And you feel so alive that you decide to break your shell for that someone. You start thinking whether it was good that you stayed inside that nutshell for all these years because you got someone so caring or whether that someone was waiting for you from years and you wasted years in coming out. But however and whatever it may be, breaking up the shell makes you to start dreaming, a new exciting life, and thinking as the life outside the nutshell would happen exactly as it was inside.

But then one day, you realize the world outside the shell doesn’t follow the same rule as you were inside. The feelings are not felt in the outside world, it needs to be expressed. While in your shell, you don’t have lot of expectations and can live without complains but as soon as you are out, there is a world waiting for you to meet their expectations and if you can’t, the world feels you betrayed them. Probably, when you don’t meet up an expectation, it’s a mistake larger than life. But you still try to be happy because you broke the shell not for the world but for the one who understood you. The one who wouldn’t care if you meet the expectations or not, because that someone knows where you came from and how you have been.

But then one day, the one who used to understand you, doesn’t understand you anymore. No matter what you say, the understanding cannot be brought back. Because once you’re in their world for so long, you can’t continue to live as you lived inside your nutshell. And when you keep failing even after all the chances given to you, you have been questioned on why you broke and came out of your nutshell if you never could be the part of their world. Why? It’s not that you haven’t tried to be the part of their world. Nothing could have been as beautiful as to see yourself with people caring about you. But the shell you came from, you have always dreamt and imagined of a life, where you want to keep everyone happy at all the time. But the real world doesn’t work in the same way you can’t keep everyone happy at all the times. And amongst the effort to make sync between these 2 different lives of yours, you lose. Yet you still can’t find the reason for that why!

And when you couldn’t answer and justify that why, you just look back to the shell you were part off. Slowly, you try to find the pieces of that broken shell again, to get into it once again, to learn what you used to be, an isolated worthless soul for the outside world! But those crack in nutshell could never be filled up, there are pieces which couldn’t hold up as before – leave you scared, afraid of what if someone would be able to see the weak you! But at the same time every ray of light and every drop of through those cracks always bring up a smile to your face and a tear to eyes – reminding you that how beautiful the world outside your nutshell was.

That’s when you learn that not everything can be the way you dreamt off. There are always some dreams unachieved, broken. And some feelings are better left unexpressed, unsaid!
