June 1st comes my birthday, I was pretty much excited for the day until I remembered glimpse of last birthday and previous than that when I got birthday wishes with one question ‘ Beta Shaadi kab kar rahi ho? ‘ and this question always made me feel how can I get married to a stranger just like that? Hence, Writing this letter to my dear unknown future husband.
My Dear Future Husband,
I hope you are loving as you are caring. I hope you you have an unconditional love with your mother along with your family. I hope you are intelligent to the point where you can teach and motivate to learn and be more but not stubborn enough to grow from me.
I hope you are as handsome as you are honest. I hope you have sense of humour that could move mountains on days when I am not able to pull it together.
I hope you protect my heart as if it were your own. I hope you love me and respect me enough to not walk out of door when we have any disagreement, confrontation.
Last but not least, I hope our love is living proof that real love does exists!
– Your and only Yours ❤
So, Its a Monday morning; I wish I could say beautiful Monday morning; but it is not! Its Hot in here like hell! and Its Monday! I step in my office, (I am a intern in software Company in Hyderabad, India), I arrange everything and get prepared for the meeting with CEO which can happen any minute;in the mean time I browse through my favorite websites. Social Samosa is one of them. It is a website which gives you where’s,what’s and how’s of Social Media Marketing. Through this I get to know about new gadget called “Pebble Smart Watch”. Being a li’l tech-freak & Out of Curiosity, I visit Pebble website and whoa I figure out its an amazing gadget and yes it is smart!
This smart watch can used as a bike computer, accessing the GPS on your smartphone to display speed, distance and pace data. Runners get a similar set of data displayed on their wrist. One can use the music control app to play, pause or skip tracks on your phone with the touch of a button. Don’t worry about the rain, It is water-resistant! and it gets better, If you’re a golfer, feel free to bring Pebble onto the course. Instead of using your phone, view your current distance to the green right on your wrist. These apps will be the first, with more in the works! It can be paired with iPhone and can be used for getting all the notifications such as email, incoming Caller-Id…*etc etc…* well yeah features are awesome! It is soon getting to India with free shipping.
And Thus, My Monday Morning starts with new inspiration and motivation to work harder!
*I dream of Pebble * 🙂
Of course There is better way of saying things in much smarter way!
Beautiful story Behind this:
Once, A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said:‘I am Blind;Please help’
A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. There were only a few coins in the hat.He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by will see the new words.
Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy.
The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, ”Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?” That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were.
The man said, “I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a way.” DIFFERENT”
What he had written was: “Today is a day and I cannot see it.”
Do you think the first sign and the second sign were saying the same thing? Of course both signs told people the boy was blind.
But the first sign simply told people to help by putting some money in the hat. The second sign told people that they were able to enjoy the beauty of the day, but the boy could not enjoy it because he was blind.
Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?
There are at least two lessons we can learn from this simple story.
The first is, “Be thankful for what you have. Someone else has less. Help where you can.”
The second is, “Think . THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY!”
‘There is always a better way’~ Thomas Alva Edison
Sometimes when I hear people speak about love, I think they are romanticizing love in its ideal form. According to Nicholas Sparks,Walk to Remember, “Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people’s sins, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes.” So may be the only eligible person for love is ‘Mr Nobody’?? Because What the heck,None of us are always patient or kind ;& Jealousy out of the question.
Further Nicholas Sparks has also said, “Without suffering, there’d be no compassion.” ; and in today’s world there will be minimum ten breakups by the time individual understands what is ‘suffering’ & another ten breakup before he/she gets what is ‘compassion’.
Love indeed starts like a cool and romantic breeze but the question is does it last like that even for three months? In a country like India, Women are little conservative when it comes to LOVE. She has lot of things in her head before even she thinks to get committed to a guy. Here, Men propose women, they start with very noble note saying they are the one who will take care and give everything their woman wants for entire life. It takes only few months or max one year (if love is extra-patient!) for a women to complain to their men that ‘you have changed’(for Years this statement haven’t modified!) After Marriage, Mostly satire quotes are released expressing ‘He was happily married but his wife wasn’t‘.
All I have been trying to understand that what is love exactly then? All the definitions of Love fail after ‘the sweet/initial period’ is over. what exactly a men should say when women says ‘you have changed’. or what Women should say when Men say,’All I expect from you is little understanding!’
As correctly said by Jennifer Paige, ‘She only sees what she wants to see,Love is blind, love is so misleading.'(Song-I am Sober)
A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor.
Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.
Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite – telling them to help themselves to hot coffee.
When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said: “If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is but normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups and were eyeing each other’s cups.
Now if life is coffee, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, but the quality of Life doesn’t change. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee in it.”
Enjoy the quality of life which is the coffee. Don’t let the cups drive you.
