Zero to Hero | Day One : Introduce Yourself.


Write the first thing that pops in your head!!

And here I am! In the most unpredictable phase of my life. Had I had to draw a graph showing the changes in my emotions/feelings, it would be full of ups and downs. Just day before yesterday, I was so happy! That too for no reason. And then yesterday, all of sudden in the evening, I started feeling nervous, and today it was like the graph was going down and down. I felt it will be in minus by evening. But then…bang! I saw this on WordPress. Zero to Hero Challenge. The graph is now going to shoot stars :D

Just in the morning I told my friend that I am too busy to write anything. But this challenge has filled me with enthusiasm and I am really looking forward to write more, if possible, regularly!

I am going through a weird phase, it is like continuous transformation. Today I am something, tomorrow I am something else. Daily some new experience, new realisation. May be this 20s is just like this. And everybody of my age must be going through same. I remember words from Miley ‘s song – The Climb

I may not know it,

But these are the moments,

I am gonna remember most!

Yeah!

May be, tomorrow, when I grow up and see back, I might feel that these were the most happening years of my life. Whatever it is, I am here to share all my feelings and know what you feel. Have you experienced the same?

I am bit confused with my feelings right now, but I hope to get a better vision as I write down my thoughts. :) It was the same reason why I started blogging at first place. Duh… I am at the same place after two years! But that’s OK. I know I have evolved a lot. And there is a lot to come.

Keep evolving and keep smiling

Diana :)

Weekly Writing Challege: Power of Names


“What is in the name?”

Can probably be the best opening line for any essay discussing about names.

I really wonder, what is in the name? Will two people not be friends had they not had the names they have? Or will two people be friends because the names they have? Don’t we often get along with strangers we meet while on a journey without even knowing their names? Or sometimes it just the way others look or speak makes us on their side.

But friends are friends. We ignore everything once we are friends with someone. No matter whether we knew the name before or we figured our later.

I myself keep track of names of people I come across just to know where they belong from. Here, in India, with so many religions, communities, casts, languages, etc name can provide a lot of information about people. For instance a Gujarati will have quite business mind while a south Indian will be more hardworking. A Brahmin will (mostly) not eat non-veg food. But now-a-days, some of them do eat which will get your eyes rolling. So you don’t just know about the God a person preaches or the language he speaks but also his nature, the food he eats just by knowing his name!

Being Single


Having spent yet another Valentine’s day as single, I just can’t help myself sharing the benefits of being single.

Here are some of them -

  1. You are happy
  2. You know that only you are the reason for your happiness, which adds the happiness
  3. You have lot of time to think about your things
  4. You are more focussed
  5. You take care of yourself and your people
  6. So even they take more care of you ;)
  7. You can sleep early at night
  8. Or you can stay up whole night doing some really important things
  9. You are happy
  10. You can hangout more with friends
  11. You don’t have to care about how you look
  12. And if you do, it is any way going to make you feel good
  13. You can be lazy and watch TV whole day
  14. No need to attend calls
  15. No need to reply messages
  16. You are happy
  17. You can crack stupid jokes
  18. You can play games on mobiles for long hours :)
  19. You can flirt with anyone
  20. You can dream of anyone
  21. You can tease all your single friends with anyone’s name :P

Obviously, these are just few of them. I am damn sure, if all singles out there will start noting down their points, the list will be never ending :) Do share!

So do join me!

And yes, there might be some benefits of not being single, but then again, singles don’t care much about things that are not there! We are optimist!

Anyway,
Stay free, stay happy :)

Diana.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Community


Here is a nice picture of my People!

Weekly Photo Challenge - Community

My Community!

There can’t be any day better than a day spent with my cousins!!

They are my strength, they are my weakness.
They are my life, they are my happiness.

I may sound little obsessed, but that’s how it is. We meet on every special occasion and we have so many moments to cherish! And still every next time we meet there is some new excitement!

Ah! I wish God will always give us such wonderful moments throughout our lives :)

This photo was clicked after we immersed Ganpati Idol in a creek near our home. Every year on Ganpati Festival, we bring Ganpati Idol in our homes and after 2, 5 or 10 days immersed it in water. So it is not just our family here, there are other families too, arrived to say Goodbye to Ganpati Bappa. Bappa is what we call him with love.

So this is how it looks when our entire community get on the floor ;) for whatever reason it may be!

What does community means to you? Do share!

Notebook Vs WordPress – Part 1


I just had a thought that what if I began writing my daily chores in notebook instead of in this blog? And I just got a topic for my post -

Why I should write in a notebook?

  1. I can write anytime I wish to
    All I need to write in a notebook is a book and a pen. So whenever a thought pops up in my mind I can just open my notebook, remove the cap and start writing. It can be anywhere – on the roadside, in the bus, in college during the lecture, in a CCD, anywhere and anytime :)
  2. I don’t need to charge anything just a pen in working condition and book with few pages left will do
    The biggest problem I face while using laptop is it is never charged when I need it the most. So using notebook will help me here. I don’t have to stay much prepared. As I said a notebook with some space to pour my thoughts and pen to make that visible is all I need. And just in case there is no pen, I can anytime borrow it from some one around :P

Thank God for best friends


One bright day, when sun rose up as usual, a small little seed grew into sprout. That pretty green spot on the brown-black grass, shone with all its spirit, spreading happiness around. Surrounded by tall, strong trees and some plants, the sprout began its journey of life.

The trees and plants protected it from wild wind, heavy rains, hot sun rays. The sprout was happy and gay, innocent and safe. It enjoyed the breeze, droplets of water and warmth of sun.

Seasons passed. And sprout was growing into plant. It enjoyed its journey so far. But now it wanted something new. It would raise its head to see something beyond. Sometimes it could, sometimes it couldn’t.

One day, just while peeping around, it found two tiny-winy plants, just like itself, wandering around, holding hand in hand, singing songs of joy, stretching a broad smile on their faces. Their sight made our plant smile, unconsciously. It felt even merry.

Then for a while, our little plant looked at its empty hand. And it felt sad, as no one was holding it. The smile disappeared. ‘I want someone to be with me.’ It thought.

Lose yourself!


I just happened to watch this movie – 8 mile. And here is one of the most awesome song I have heard from the same movie. It is by ‘The Rap God’ Eminem. :)
May be you guys already know it. This is just a reminder if that is the case.

***

Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted. one moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip?
Yo

His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There’s vomit on his sweater already, mom’s spaghetti
He’s nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready to drop bombs,
But he keeps on forgetting what he wrote down,
The whole crowd goes so loud
He opens his mouth, but the words won’t come out
He’s choking how, everybody’s joking now
The clock’s run out, time’s up, over, bloah!
Snap back to reality, Oh there goes gravity
Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked
He’s so mad, but he won’t give up that
Easy, no

My Mind, Heart And Self


Diana:

Watching sullenly

Those unforgettable leaves falling

Down the trees, slowly in the wind.

Originally posted on FOR WHOM THE GRASS GROWS:

Maybe to say out loud that

I am bothered by your thoughts

And tales, is an act

That needs sheer courage.

But then often I find

My self walking alone down

A snowy path on a winter eve.

And the trees which line up the way,

Bear your memories

In the form of leaves.

As my self walks,

Suddenly out of thin air,

I hear

A voice strange and weird.

It’s my brain.

Crying at the top of its lungs that-

“Romance is a two-way street!”

But even before a wink,

My heart shouts back casually

“But love isn’t! ”

And my self tries to pacify them.

Both.

Of course, it never realizes that

To serve both is a paradox.

And of course, it doesn’t succeed.

And so the confusion penetrates

Deep into the pockets of my self

As it walks down the snowy path;

Like a  lean skeleton of…
