Can there be love stronger, more selfless than Friendship?? I guess NO… 🙂IMG_1226

Attachment is not when two people chat Day & Night. . . . It’s when someone E- mails you and adds an Image or Data File with it. 😉

I remember reading this message long time back. Funny, isn’t it? Had it been really so easy to define attachment, I wouldn’t have required so many days to post this. While the truth is, I am not yet able to define what it is. I can only describe it, vaguely.

In our day to day life, we get so easily attached to people, things, places etc. And we don’t realize this until we are no more going to follow the same thing. For instance, if you got attached to a person you don’t realize this till a day comes and the person leaves you. If you get attached to a thing and you no more find it at the place you left it. Places… can you easily leave a house where you lived for so long? Have so many memories?

Well, I am not against getting attached. But it hurts so badly if it is not going to continue 😦 .

I always happen to get attached very easily. The silliest thing could be that I often get attached to my desk. And every time I have to change it, I really feel sad to move to new place with new system, new neighbors… I know it is just a corner of a cubicle and all I have to do is concentrate on my work but still…

What I feel is, attachment means getting the habit, getting used to. We get used to stay in company of certain people, used to using things, use to be in particular place. And although they say ‘Change is the only constant thing’ nobody really accepts the Change that easily. So attachment can be more gentle word for ‘getting used to’.

It’s not just about people or things or places. It is even about our day to day habits. Suppose you are working in 2nd shift and all of a sudden you have to work in day shift. So even though you always blamed the 2nd shift, it becomes really difficult to you to work in 1st shift. It’s because you are used to work in 2nd shift and it is difficult for you to work in 1st shift, just till you get used to it 🙂

Am I making it complicated??

Well I will like to sum it up as I realize I am not going anywhere with this. Conclusion is… if you are strong enough to accept new things happily, you will not mind getting attach to any number of things. Because you will always welcome new things. But if you aren’t, then you will always be hurt if you lose things you are attached to. And you will always fear of new things because you fear to lose them.

I think it is getting even more complicated. I should stop here.

A thing to remember is – Only the most adaptable being can survive in this ever changing world. So its up to us, how much to get attach and how much to let go…

Hope you have a nice weekend and get introduced to new things!
With love,

Weekly Photo Challenge – Illumination

I loved this topic of Weekly photo challenge
I love the warm feeling the lights give, the brightness it stands for, cheerfulness it spreads around… All this makes me forget the electricity bill meter that keeps on revving 😉

The photo I am sharing is of Ganesh Chaturthi, the Ganesh festival that we celebrate here in India. It mostly falls in the month of August. We bring a statue of Lord Ganesh for 2,5,6,7,10 or 11 days and then immerse it in sea. He is consider our guest for these many days.

And so we organize, decorate our house to welcome our guest.


We decorated our house like this…If you can see gilded square thing in the center? That’s where we rested the Ganesh’s statue. Unfortunately, I do not have his pic sitting there. Although I have another one, just for you to know who is Ganesh…

I enjoyed writing this post. I hope you enjoyed reading this too 🙂

Take care.

Shopping Spree…

There was a time when I hated shopping. I hated wandering from one shop to another. Trying to find something that perfectly matched my requirements. Not just mine but also the one who accompanied me. If it is some thing, like some useful thing then it is still fine. But if they are cloths, there are many factors that together specify our requirements. And things keep on getting complicated.

With every shop you visit, your temper keeps on losing, you get more frustrated, you no more want to shop, your legs ache and still you don’t find anything that is even close to what you want. A disappointing day. But you don’t want that to happen, so you continue to wander no matter what, till you find that something you had in your mind right from the beginning. This was my perception of shopping and so I hated shopping.

But now, things have changed… a lot. I have began to love shopping. 😉


I can just roam from shop to shop, asking the keepers to show me everything they have. In fact at times, there might be nothing in my mind and as I start looking at the various things, I might want to have one. So it is like, the day wont be disappointing because there is actually nothing that I want and I might still end up getting something good… LOL…

I realize now what is shopping all abou! It is actually just a mood swing or a stress releasing therapy, a feel good factor or a way to spend some time with your loved ones or just doing something when you really don’t have anything else to do… or it can obviously be one of the ways to spend your money…

Today, I actually shopped something for no obvious reasons and from nowhere I started feeling good… I don’t know why? And of course… I did visit few shops, tried few cloths which I didn’t even buy 😉 And I bought something else which I wasn’t in my mind at first place… 🙂


It was fun… Spent evening with my Mom… which I always do anyway. This is what made me write this post. I know it is very casual post with nothing much but…
I am sure you will understand… You can also share your shopping experiences… 🙂

Take care,

Drenched Words

RIP to the rape victim‘Are you fucking kidding me…Do you seriously think that DGRC victim will rest in peace after what has happened to her? Tell me, if you and I were there on that night of 16th December and it was one of us who would have been raped and assaulted brutally with an iron rod, thrown off on road, lying with our body tattered apart… If I would be the one who would be fighting to hold on to life for more than 10 days, undergoing knife several times, multiple surgeries & organ failures while the media made zillions by turning me into a “HEADLINE”… If I would be the one who would be flown off to die on a foreign land only to pacify the unrest & anger…BELIEVE ME …. I WOULD NOT REST IN PEACE…

Happy New Year!!

So here I am, with my first post of 2013!

First of all, wish you all a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013! May the year brings lot of joy, happiness, new experiences and help you grow a bit! 🙂

For me, 2012 was too much! I think, I learned too many new things, and all together it was very heavy, till the last day 😛
I am still thinking about all the events that occurred all round the year, and trying to figure out the lesson I should learn from them. Some how I know, that I have learned many new things, I have indeed grown up.

But I don’t want 2013 to be like this. I just want to chill out this year! Lot of pouring has been done already and I am not going to do that again. This is what 2012 taught me. That even after so many things, life can be lived as normal as it was before. As if nothing happened, as if you are grown up and still you can forget it and behave like kids…(although it may take 1 complete year for you to realize this 😉 )


The other things that I have decided to do are – to read more books (in 2012, I read as many books as number of wheels a two-wheeler has 😦 ), watch more movies, do more of Origami, learn new things about fashion, make up, be more bold, more straight forward, gain more knowledge about different things, talk more, talk to new people if possible, write more often, participate once again in weekly photo challenge, study well, clear 2 levels of DELF, and most important of all – clear Management entrance test!

Although some dreams didn’t come true in 2012, I realize that they might come true in 2013 and if at all they don’t, I still have many other dreams that want I to achieve… So no point in crying…

I hope that even in 2013, I continue to have faith in God, belief that there are good people in this world and good things have only good consequences!

May God Bless You All!
