Oh, the comfort - the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person - having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.
~Dinah Craik

Few days back, I got a small story in my mail and found it very very close to reality. Check this out

A boy and a girl were playing together. The boy had a collection of marbles. The girl had some sweets with her. The boy told the girl that he will give her all his marbles in exchange for her sweets. The girl agreed. The boy kept the biggest and the most beautiful marble aside and gave the rest to the girl. The girl gave him all her sweets as she had promised.

That night, the girl slept peacefully. But the boy couldn't sleep as he kept wondering if the girl had hidden some sweets from him the way he had hidden his best marble.

Moral of the story:If you don't give your hundred percent in a relationship, you'll always keep doubting if the other person has given his/her hundred percent.. This is applicable for any relationship like love, friendship, family, employer-employee relationship etc., Give your hundred percent to everything you do and sleep peacefully.

There's one sad truth in life I've found
While journeying east and west -
The only folks we really wound
Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best.

The lost Innocence

After giving sufficient time to my damaged ligament to heal, on Sunday, I came out of my house for a walk to a park nearby. And it felt so good to fold my stretched leg (ouch!!!!! felt a sting of pain but it felt nice). While sitting on the bench with my better-half and talking about increments, promotions and all that stuff, my eyes got fixed on a small boy of age around 6. While playing with a ball he was singing some song in undistinguished voice which initially I was not able to understand.

But when I heard it properly, I was amazed that he was singing a very old but famous song “cheel cheel chilla ke kajri sunaye.. jhum jhum kauwa bhee dholak bajaye..” and that too in a his cute funny voice and the best part was when he says “arre wawawa arre wawawa”.

All of sudden, I was in deep thought ki yaar how come hi knew this song? Now a days we all are happy with Dil mera Hit-Hit, Ahun Ahun, Dhan te naan ,Tandoori Nights and all other not-so-good songs. But I was not able to find the answer cos he was not interested in talking to strangers.

This song took us back to our childhood days…

The days when cold drinks used to be once in a while thing and its consumption used to be an occasion. It was something that used to be enjoyed and to feel good about, not only just a mean to satiate our thirst.

The days when birthday's meant to be an in-house gathering of friends & family with proper home made food and not just a birthday luxury in a gaudy bistro.

The days when Doordarshan's sunday morning Rangoli, Chandrakanta, Mahabharat, Ramayana and cartoons (Duck-tales, Tale-spin) and evening Movies used to be a Special event when all the neighbors use to gather at one place to watch them.

The days when summer vacations used to be a time to have wholesome trouble-free fun but not a time to force children to enhance their skills by joining all promising vacation course.

The days when we use to go to our villages to enjoy our vacations without any tensions, without any burdens, without any pressures, without any cheatings, and also without any complaints with a lot of swimming in the pond and river, those running around trees and animals, those cycling teachings, those jagging and fighting with friends but not a time when each child compete with other to please their parents.

The days when we use to sit with our parents and talk about everything but not a time when we have no time for our spouses too.

The days when Ek aur anek, Mile sur mera tumhara, the Doordarshan music at 6 o’clock used to be children’s fav song not Meri pant bhi sexy and Hoth rasiley.

We were lost in the memories but the raindrops bought us back in the world where we are living, the world with ruthless cutthroat struggle, where one have to go over others head to gain something and the world where there is no place for innocence.

Well, after coming back the first thing I did was downloading the songs of Movie HALF-TICKET along with videos of famous Doordarshan songs as Ek aur anek, Don’t spread rumors, Title track of Jungle Book (Jungle jungle baat chali hai pata chala hai, Chaddhi pehan ke phool khila hai phool khila hai), Shristi se pehle (Bharat ek Khoj), Surabhi and Duck-tales.


Cos I wanted to show the coming generations about our past and also to satisfy my hunger to go back in time and find the lost innocence…..

Dedicated to the most beautiful girl I ever met :)

My kind of music,
My favorite song,
I want to be with you
All day & all night long...

A spring breeze,
A summer sun,
Now that I know you
You are my one...

A winter sparkle,
An autumn tree,
Added all up
It equals you & me...

My best friend,
My only lover,
From here on out
I'll keep you forever...

A good laugh,
With some happy tears,
You're the one I go to
Through all the coming years...

When it rains it rains,
When it snows it snows,
I wrote this specially for you
& you're the only one who knows...

You keep me warm,
When I'm so cold,
As if my heart were for sale
To you it was sold...

Whether playing our favorite games,
Or to music we sing & listen,
When it comes to you
There's just no competition...

Not the finest thing,
Or the reddest rose,
Could ever amount to
When you hold me close...

& when everything is said & done,
The night is over & we've had our fun,
Out of all the girls I choose just one,
The best one of all & that's you Hun.

Thanks for being with me in all my thicks and thins.
