The darkness ; it talks
The shadows ; they stalk

How many of us have seen someone we know just fall prey to bad things ?
I bet the number constitutes at least 90% .
I , for one, have seen many ( and taking into account my ignorance of everything not related to me , its saying something) .
We try and try to get them to let go and yes, sometimes out of sheer luck we do succeed but most of the time, we fail !
I thought I failed too but what I came to realize later is that it was not my test to fail .
Its like me and that person , in an examination hall , sitting next to each other and having an entirely different paper. While I have the knowledge to help that someone else pass this test ( and my willingness, which is rare ! ) , despite my best efforts to help them try to achieve it , the other person may not even be able to understand me.
Which surprisingly (not ! ) , is true in most of the cases.
( Also the above may suggest that me not being a good cheater, the fact though still remains. Their test and them not asking for help, makes it none-of-my-business ! )
Similarly, it is their life, their decisions, their mistakes, their triumphs. Relative to this, we are just by-standers ; allowed to have an opinion and even shout that opinion in their faces. ( as long as we expect it to be followed by ignorance on their part obviously . )
I have myself made bad decisions ( who hasn’t ? )and in hindsight I wish someone would have shouted some things in my face too, but in hindsight I have also realized that I would have just as easily ignored them as I would my homework.
Only thing WE can do is be there for them. I am not asking you to support their decisions because that ish is effed up but only to let them know that whatever happens, and whenever they are ready, you will be there for them.
( Queue the Awwwww ! )
Last but not the least …
Live and Let live !
( despite the jackasses they are ! )
(but don’t smother anyone with that love )
LATERS, BABY !
I got up late ,
obviously didn’t go to college
and well more or less , there on after,
cuddled in my quilt all warm and comfy.
So here I am, little old me , browsing the YouTube
(as one does when one is bored) ,
and suddenly I come across one of my favorite you-tuber,
iisuperwomanii a.k.a. Lilly Singh’s video on ” Girl on Girl hate:” .
Now you know that I go to a girl’s college
and needless to say that with all the girls around,
some cats are bound to be rattled and some fights are bound to ensue.
( and yes, boys and some girls , that is an image ! )
ME? I am a certified Unicorn just like my home girl Lilly and you know me, I like painting them rainbows all around too much to get into a fight.
Therefore ,here I am (out of my quilt , just for y’all) writing on a serious topic.
( I do that sometimes you know, get serious I mean.
It’s rare but it happens. )
Moving on …
If you are a girl, you have experienced THE jealousy, enviousness, superior complex, inferior complex and a whole lot more !
Hell , even if you are a guy you have most likely experienced those things!
And I bet my soon- to -be -bought -hover-board
(A fact ? I am very serious about that hover-board
and it doesn’t matter if future is probably twenty years later ),
that you have judged other people.
I’ll be the first to say that I have too .
And to be honest , its more of a reflex.
In my defense, it is empirical that one observe one’s surrounding and science says surrounding include humans so there you go.
I rest my case .
Considering that a judgement now has been passed,
its stands to reason that one goes on to publicize it.
In layman’s term,
IT’S TIME TO BITCH.
I am a girl ( obviously a little tom-boyish but still a girl )
and trust me when I say that nobody loves bitching and gossiping more than girls.
It is hard to explain but if I were to do it,
purely for the purpose of this post ,
I would conclude that we get a certain high from it.
Hence , the commencement ( see me, using all the big words) of girl on girl hate.
So, keeping all this in mind, Lilly Singh ( Lilly with the double L’s ) introduced #GirlLove.
#GirlLove is an idea.
It is an idea to spread love and get over this feeling of jealousy, inadequacy and insecurity.
If you know someone who is better than you, learn from them.
You are your unique self and they are theirs.
What is good should be complimented and what is better should be praised.
Ok then !
I should stop rambling now !
And you , you go watch the video.
The challenge is to come back and compliment a person in the comment section.
As for me, I would like to compliment a girl I used to know ;Saima , who was better at poetry than me ( you are judging but anyhooo… )
I was jealous but you girl , you were something !
Concluding this post,
Last but not the least,
Admire but not hate!
Be inspired and not discouraged!
And compliment others once in a while , its a great feeling to see that smile on their face !
NO GIRL HATE
RESOLUTION : nop
PROMISE : yes
All the money made from the views of this video goes to the Malala Fund !
So do watch it !
Peace Out !
WHAT IS WRONG WITH BEING WHO YOU WERE ?
I want to be better.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH WHO YOU ARE NOW ?
I don’t know who I am now.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH WHO YOU WANT TO BE ?
you ! 😦
Dear all- the- people- in -the -world,
I know it late but DEAL WITH IT.
I bet I am the only person who wished you after it happened and in a way it makes me unique.
So, your welcome.
P.S. : TBH I was sick. ( I know crappy timings. NEVER-the-less ..)
P.P.S. : I hope you had a good Christmas.
P.P.P.S : to all those who have a birthday in December, Jesus won !
OK BAAAYYYYEEE !
Maybe you are from a different country,
Maybe you follow different religion,
Maybe you celebrate different festivals,
Maybe you like one more than the other,
Maybe these are all alike.
We all look forward to that one day that will bring us happiness.
Festivals have a way to make us do exactly that
whether it might be Christmas, Diwali , Eid or anything else !
They maybe different in their proceedings
but all have one thing in common ,
they all bring us joy !
I am an Indian and a Hindu but I celebrate Christmas.
I am an Indian and a Hindu and I celebrate Vaisakhi .
Yes all festivals have their historical and spiritual value but does that mean that only a certain population is allowed to take part in the festives.
In fact I feel proud when I see a foreigner celebrating Holi or any other Indian festival !!
Yesterday was Diwali – the festival of Lights .
This festival is ‘my one’ because I get to meet my whole family without any exceptions.
We all live away from each other owing to the nature of our jobs
but still on this day it is expected of everyone to be in attendance.
And in attendance , they are !
My joint family of 12 people under one roof.
The late nights, the antakshri, the sweets, the laughter, the tears, the games, a little of the crackers (GUILTY).
All in all happiness.
Sharing a moment with someone is good and sharing that moment with your family is better !
I know life today moves fast and we move faster , but give yourself a break from time to time..
Meet up with the people you love, not just on festivals but other days as well.
Live for QUALITY and not QUANTITY !
ENJOY LIFE …….
Like minds coming together to discuss all things books.
