Lesson From Love

Love, its wonderful wonderful thing. It’ll make you happy, on top of the world happy, it’ll give you butterflies in your stomach and it’ll make everything seem alright. But I’m not going to lie to you, love hurts as well.

What I’ve learnt from personal experience is that love is a good thing, a really good thing. But loving if you love unconditionally, you’ll end up hurting yourself. Trust me. I know. Never depend 100% on that one person, because when they’re gone ( GOD forbid) for even the shortest span, be it a week or a month, you’ll be spending most of your nights crying yourself to sleep and loosing yourself. You’ll find it difficult to put on that smile which earlier, used to come on so easily.

Don’t get me wrong, Love is the best thing that will ever happen to you. You will never ever regret it, its magical. But It will hurt. At some point on time or the other, love will hurt you. No matter how hard you try and brace yourself, prepare yourself, it’ll find a way around you and hit you hard. But I guess if your love is genuine, then you’ll face the pain and get back up.

During this time, when that person is not there by your side, you WILL NEED friends. You will need that one person who will understand you, who will be there for you and who will tell you what you’re meant/supposed to hear, not what you WANT to hear.

To me, love is the best thing that’s ever happened. Its been wow. But I loved unconditionally and I wasn’t prepared for a ‘break’. And when it hit me, I was left broken. I loved her too much and didn’t give her enough space. I didn’t give her any time for herself.

Don’t make the same mistake I did. Love. Love a lot. But give your partner the space he/she requires. Its something he/she shouldn't be deprived off.

I dedicate this post to all you new lovers out there (:
May you have an everlasting relationship filled with happiness.

What does Innovation mean to Me?

Innovation can be seen as the process that renews something that exists and is commonly thought to be the introduction of something new. Innovation is something that we see every week. It is simply change. Change in thoughts and change in ideas. It is the improvement on existing technologies. 
Innovation in today’s world is also known as creativity. Creativity is looking at a world from a different angle and trying to better it, and that is innovation. Innovation is the way forward for our civilization. It is the improvement in the standard of living in the society. 
Without innovation our civilization would not be what it is today, we would not have developed from ancient machines to the automated machines we have today. Innovation is something that the society cannot live without. It is necessary.

It's been a short while since the Haiti earthquakes which has left almost the entire world devastated and astounded.  This act, along with some thinking on my part, has made me wonder whether in this fast paced life that each one of us lives, is there a God or even the requirement of God.
I won't go into the problems with every country, I'll just talk about my homeland. India. The poverty rate is soaring High, The illiteracy rate is just insane, the corruption, the sadness, the despair, it's all unbearable in India. And after looking at all this, I begin to wonder whether or not god really does exist or not. If he does, for some unknown reason, he refuses to show it. We pray to him everyday, sincerely and in return we ask for happiness and safety, but it seems like those are and will always remain to be expectations and nothing more.
In today's highly commercialized society, we see the top notch businessmen trying to help society and give them a better standard of living. I admit that most of them aren't even doing it for the right reason and are just doing it for the publicity, but it's still want we expect from The Lord. So does that make them almighty? What does that say about our beliefs. Do we believe in god just because it's tradition and so that we may blame the unforeseen on some higher supernatural being? Or is it just human nature? 
I believe it's human nature. I believe belief and hope are what sustains the human civilization, and gives us the drive and determination that we have. Its not that I don't believe in God, I just feel that his role in our lives is different from what we hope or believe it to be.

Smile. If not for yourself do it for others? :)

Have you ever wondered? how some people can be so happy all the time and keep smiling whenever and wherever?

well 80% of the times, its these happy people that are the saddest on the inside. coz they know that frowning and making a sad face wont do anything. it might just spoil someone else's day.

once in a while, it wouldn't exactly kill you to go up to your friend and ask him how he/she? how's her life etc etc. give him/her a chance to talk. to let out all those emotions bottled up inside. thats something i've learnt. never bottle up feelings. they don't do shit (pardon the language). it just makes you feel worse. let it out. honestly you'll feel much better.

and never ever forget to smile. even though you're in the worst situation possible. just smile atleast around others. coz you never know, who's day you might make with that smile. :)

Be Stupid. Be Mad :D

A general everyday question asked is, “Who are you?” It has a very general and straightforward answer. “My name is Parichay” that’s it? 
Have you ever tried asking yourself this question? Who are you? What defines you? Are you happy with the life you’re living? If you were to die today (GOD forbid), will you go with satisfaction that you’ve lived whatever years you had to the fullest?
They say your actions and thoughts describe you. Here’s what I think of life. It’s my way of life.

Human beings live for an average of 80 years. In the span of those 80 years, the first 20 go in studying hard, to build a sustainable future, the next 30-40 go in work, earning for your family, and carrying out the various responsibilities of yours, and the last 20 – 30 years, you’re too old to do anything. What a life right? -_-

Find time. Get out there and do all the crazy things you’ve seen on TV. Or you’ve read about.
Things like parasailing, skydiving, bungee jumping from a great height, going on a rollercoaster which has a near 90 degrees vertical drop, scuba diving etc etc. Go for it! We have only one life to live, why live a useless one? It’s your life, make it large: D

“The smart may have the brains, but the stupid have the balls”
“If you’ve never done anything stupid, you’ve never done anything at all” ~~ diesel 

No-ones asking you to get out there and make history. That’s just plain stupidity. But at least get out there and make your live a life well lived!
Not a life where your daily routine is this – 
Get up. Brush your teeth blah blah. Eat. Go to work. Come back. Watch a little TV. Eat. And go to sleep. Once in a blue moon go out.
What utter crap.
Don’t compromise on your work hours but at least find time to do the things you’ve always wanted to do?! Live to all those dreams you’ve had.

Think about what I’ve said? It’s my policy. Might not necessarily be yours. 
I’m keeping this one relatively shorter. 

So until next time.
Adios. And goodbye :)

Heroes :)

Have you ever wished that you were 18? Just to be the master of yourself. NO ONE to tell you what to do, when to sleep, blah blah……
NO ONE to stop you from going to parties, from having late night conversations etc. It all sounds really neat doesn’t it?
Tempting but no thanks. I feel like that sometimes. I’m sure everyone does once in  a while. But I feel otherwise too.

I don’t wish to be 18, but I can’t wait to be. Not making sense right?
These years, while we’re still….. kids(yes, we are. No matter how much you decline that, we are kids. 15/16/17 is not grown up :P), will be the best times of our lives. The fun, the Hakunamatata no care in the world feeling will go. We’ll be in college studying, then we’ll have a family and jobs and responsibilities. This time will never ever repeat itself.

Our parents, at times they’re the reason we wish to be 18. to get out of the house. But remember, WHATEVER they say, is for our benefits. They say it keeping our interests in mind.
“GO STUDY” a typical dialogue heard by most of the kids. A statement that can get your blood to boil. Can get you really angry and should I say, ‘pissed off’
but have you ever wondered the number of sleepless nights our parents have had? Thinking about our marks, our future, about us. Honestly, they’re more worried about our future than we are ourselves. That I know for sure.

Another common dialogue heard by most of us is, “We know what you’re going through because we’ve gone through the same”..
In most of the cases, the first thing that comes to mind is, “ oh man -_-, not again”  or “oh sure you have(sarcastically)”.
Well maybe they have? They were teenagers too once. They’ve done their boards too. They HAVE been through the same pressure we’ve been through.

My Parents. They’re like my friends. I’ve made them mine. Its what every parents wants, to be closer to their child, the know him/her better.
A piece of advice? Everyday, no matter how tight your schedule, just spend a short 15 mins with your parents. Talk to them about absolutely anything. Your school. Friends. Teachers. Any random topic. But communicate with them. They’ll feel really great, and trust me. So will you :)

My parents are my heroes, my role models. I draw inspiration from them. They’re the best :)
i came across this story in hindu mythology which really touched my heart.
Once there was a fight between many celestial beings and gods about who is the greatest. Among the gods was Lord Ganesha. Son of lord shiva and Parvati.
To setter the dispute, lord Vishnu told all the celestial beings and gods, that the first one two take 3 rounds of the world will be the greatest. Everyone set out on their holy animals to circumnavigate the world.
Lord Ganesha, on his mouse, took three rounds of shiva and parvati. When lord Vishnu asked ganesha what he did, lord ganesha replied, “ my parents are my world and since you stated to talk three rounds of the world, I have taken 3 rounds of my world”

Our parents work day and night to ensure that we live a comfortable life. That we never get a chance to complain, that we live a happy life.
In return, the least we can do for them is show them respect, love and gratitude. Show them that you appreciate everything they’ve done for you. It’ll make them feel great.
Show it by making them a card, of a simple drawing. Anything.
Just to make them feel special.

I end this blogpost now. This was a blogpost dedicated to my parents. My mumma and papa.
Mom, dad…. You the shizz :)

Thankyou for everything you’ve done for me. I really appreciate it all :)

Love you, ^^

You're the best :) <3

Being Hatke :)

My first blog guys so wish me luck :)

Never be bullied into silence.  Never allow yourself to be made a victim.  Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.  ~Harvey Fierstein

Nowadays we hear this line everywhere, Be yourself, don’t let others influence your decisions, no matter what happens do what you think is right.

Normal everyday dialogues. Easy to say, but not so easy to do.

In today’s world sticking to the status quo is a must for all. Trying something out of the box could make one an outcast or some weird dude who’s “lost his senses”?

Why is it that people contradict their own statements? First they say stand up and be yourself no matter what. But when we do that we hear all kinds of things.
For example, in today’s common classroom, if another ordinary kid doesn’t want to go with the flow and stand out, not be another follower. He gets disrespected. People throw some nasty comments. He becomes an *untouchable*


Is it so hard to mean what you say? Is it a crime? To go against the others and stand up for yourself?

They say your actions define who you are. Well then go out there and do what YOU want to do. What your heart wants you to do. Not what the WORLD wants you to do.

Be you. Be different. Be Hatke :)(btw hatke means different in hindi xD)

I’m going to keep this post short. And end it now.

But before saying “until next time” , I’d like to say to all those who relate to this and who are reading this,
Don’t do things coz of what others say, do what your heart wants. Always.
No matter how crazy it might be, if you believe in it go for it. It’ll be worth it. That I can guarantee you :)

So until next time :)
Bye :)

Think about what I’ve said :)

I simply loved this picture :)

Entering the World of Blogging :)

never thought i'd make my own blog and be writing in it. I doubt this will even be a success :P
but that doesn't matter to me.
i'm going to express my thought here,
on random things, on things i thinks need to be understood by the world.
This blog might be a disappointment to some of you because it won't contain those big fancy words you see otherwise, but this blog is original. Its from the heart. and if thats not enough for you, then i'm sorry, you need to broaden your views

This blog is going to be about my take on random things. Emotions etc.

Wish me luck,
