Why i Write..!!

i write because i like to read.

I write because I like to think.

I write because it makes me think.

I write because it helps me find answers.

I write because I have lots to say and no one to tell.

I write because I can write about everything.

I write because I can write about anything.

i write when i am upset.

i write when i am happy.

I write now and then again in a while.

It calms me down and it makes me smile and well occasionally others too.

i write because i am loner.

I write because I like to play with words.

I write because I can travel when I do.

I write because it helps me create.

I write because the world is a better place then.

I write because I CAN!

Cause It's easy to make a buck. It's a lot tougher to make a difference.

ARDENT! EBULLIENT! EXUBERANT! FANATICAL! Yes, that’s how every normal Indian student feels at around this time of the year and many more times considering how many exams we have throughout the year. So kudos to me for completing 2 trimesters where even one seemed impossible. Though with a lot of retests and fails I still feel proud that I could sit through every 2 hour exam and write something on those blank sheets. I am looking forward to a very exciting trimester and if these three months work out the way they should, you’ll see less of my I-have-done-nothing-in-my-life posts!

As for today I need to just deal with my hangover and do my reading and writing I missed in the last week. And that’s going to keep me busy for some time now. Thankfully. Also I am getting myself involved in as many things as I can take and do full justice to. It feels like it’s the right time to do things that I truly and honestly believe in. and even as I take the first step towards it, I realize that it fills me up with so much satisfaction.

illiteracy.animal warming.domestic violence.alcoholism.there are so many issues for which people fight for everyday.and all they require is participation.

I know I don’t have many readers but whoever accidental gets to reading this do visit the link below and do your bit. The fact that the education that has made me the person I am is something that not everyone has makes me feel ashamed and I am going to do my bit. It sounds all dramatic but it’s a very critical issue like many others and needs participation. So participate.

I have a psychology exam is 3 hours from now. And I have been trying to study for it from quite some time now. And by that I mean QUITE! I love the subject. The content. I love to observe people and understand the way different people look at different things differently. At the start of this trimester having this subject was the only thing I was looking forward to after a catastrophic first trimester. I have learnt a lot during the course of the lectures.

But what I realize now is that the easier it is to understand this subject it’s equally difficult to study it. And can you imagine I was actually considering doing a B.A in it. Sometimes you think that something is right for you until you actually do it. And then you realize how stupid it was to think its right for you. Though I feel the same about B.B.A I’m just going to let the feeling pass.Somethings that are not good for you now and good for you later, or maybe not. But yeah more on that later.

So this post is for another retest KT in the line..!!

I’ll be doing you twice, feel special psychology??

For the many wonderful yes’s!

Happy? No! Want something? No! Pizza? No! Beer? No, I don't drink on weekdays! Hungry at all? No! I think you’re good! No! I think you should work harder! Whatever, no! I think you’re pretty! No, I’m short, my hair isn’t proper , blah blah...basically No! You’re ugly! No! Want to sit? No! Want to walk? No, I’m tired! Want to learn? No i have learnt enough. Want to travel? No, I'll sit at home and watch T.V! Want to have ice cream in the rains? No it’s raining! Want to be friends? No , i already have enough friends , lets sleep together! Want to fall in love? Yes and live with the same person for the rest of my life.ummm yeah thats as good as a No! Want to try something new? No, my mum’s waiting for me at home! Want to breathe? No! Yeah go die!!!

I think , the word No is a word associated with pretence, ego , fear to try something new, fear to lose and all those bad things you learn about in kindergarten and experience once you start dating in high school. Or if you are “cooler” then primary! When you say no you deny. And denial is when you know you’re wrong but you’d rather lie and say you’re not.

So think before you say no. Someone out there might just get turned of.ummm or maybe won’t. I mean I doubt anyone can think like me. But still common guys! When are you going to do those things if not today that are very no-full? You can do it today. Or regret that you dint do it today after a few years. And only someone really stupid will want the later.

However Stand by what you believe in and don’t bend in front of anything. Dont do something You're heart doesn't want you to.Say no when and where you should. But let go otherwise. ;)

Cause You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me...

Tea helps our head and heart.

Tea medicates most every part.

Tea rejuvenates the very old.

Tea warms the hands of those who’re cold.

If there is anything that I absolutely need in my life and wish to see every morning when I get up it is a "cup of tea". Each cup of tea represents an imaginary voyage for me. The best time I have is with my cup of tea and an interesting novel.

So there’s a rule in my house -no tea if I get up any time after 10.Yeah its torture really. Just a way for my mum to get me out of my bed early. And Since its 12 now I am not going to get any tea on a day full of unnecessary studying (studying is usually unnecessary). A week of exams and I already feel like jumping of my second floor balcony.


It’s such a disease. Or at least it feels like one. Especially when you have them every other month. It’s everywhere and still no one seems to do anything about it. I guess I’ll have to work on that later and concentrate on my accounts paper for now. A subject that I loved but now conveniently dislike thanks to NMIMS.

So yeah I guess I’ll go get ready for my day (without any tea) for now. Hope that this week ends asap.

so , best of luck to me.

He’s crazy like literally,stubborn,confused,thoughtful,overly particular,unnecessarily clean,smart,ambitious,observant,Unsettled...!!!

Yeah He’s me….!!

so, He is not my boy friend but I can still say he’s mine.

He is not my best friend but he’s still my favorite…

He’s not emotional but I know he cares...

He’s not my advisor but he gives me the best suggestions (in the most offending ways)...

He may not make me feel awesome all the time,but he makes things so much more simpler for me...

He doesn’t give me his shoulder to cry every time I’m sad but he is one of those who can make me smile without any reason.

He’s is what I call him- my personal Google.

I have learnt so much from him in so less time.About everything.

He has taught me all that I’m sure I wouldn’t have learnt so easily.

He taught me to accept (to a certain extent for now)

So yeah Except for the absolute cold blooded jack ass that he is He is perfect and I love him.He gave me my perfect start for the year and will always love him even more for that.This is not one of those relationships I can bet would last a life time.but then this one of those relationships id look back at throughout my life thinking about how awesome it was..!!

P.s: i cant think about a perfect title so im just going to leave it for now..!! i know ill find something perfect eventually! :)

p.p.s: :*

Its all about following your dream!

"When you want something, the entire universe conspires in helping you to achieve it."

Ever believed in a dream? Ever thought that your dream could tell you all that you want to know? That your dream could take you there where you are meant to be? Well I have... I do..!!

I dream... I dream a little too much... its often mistaken as “I think too much” or “I plan a lot” or “I build castles in the air” by everyone around me… but as far as I am concerned when I dream I begin my journey…

Sometimes you believe in something , but you’re not sure if that’s right and then something funny happens... you realize that you’re not the only one who feels so..

It was somewhere around the time when, I wasn’t sure about what I want from life and when I was too let down by my experiences that I read the ALCHEMIST-again..!!

The first time I read it was when I was 15... And so I wouldn’t say it taught me a lot then... because honestly It dint...

I did not read it as a modern time classic or did not read it with the intention of deciphering what the writer wanted his readers to decipher...

It was a book I just grabbed from a friend without understanding what effect it was going to have on me in the years to come.

It did not make sense to me then and today exactly 3 years after the first time I read the book it makes more sense to me than anything else...

The story details the journey of a young Andalusia shepherd Santiago. His journey that begins with a dream... a dream that he believes is prophetic...the dream that sets him off on a journey to the Egyptian pyramids. A journey that will teach him the lessons of love, danger, opportunities and disasters.

The story combines an atmosphere of medieval mysticism with the song of the desert. It’s a story about taking chances and listening to your heart.

The best thing about this allegorical novel is that the writer has left the interpretation of a major part of the story for the reader... he has excellently penned down what he truly believes about life, destiny and a man’s journey through life and then left us to think.

He has explained the brilliant concept what has now become the way I look at life – maktub!

Maktub which means “it is written”…

That every incident that takes place... every time you fall or you change your path or you are unable to do something it is because that is what is right for you…

Every person in your life is there with a purpose... every friend or enemy you make will be a lesson you will realize was good to learn when you come to the end of your journey...'

Even though that’s the literal definition of the word what you realize as the story goes ahead is that it’s you who writes every bit of your own story...

This is a journey not only for Santiago but the readers as well... and journey if well read about would teach you those lessons of life that will help you stay strong even in the worst of life’s tribulations...

It is a story about believing that you can write your own destiny if you truly believe in yourself and your dreams...

Another thing that this book makes you realize Is that the simpler our lives are, the easier it is for us to follow our dreams... the entire mankind today believes that at some point of time you lose the ability to control our lives and becomes the pawns of fate and that’s exactly because of the complexity that we handle our lives with..

Those of us who don’t have the courage to trust our instincts and follow our dreams are doomed for a life full of misery and unfullfillment.

It’s extremely interesting how Paulo Coelho suggests that not following your dream is like not wanting to meet god..!! That as we walk on the road that is meant for us and follow our instincts we will find god..!! That god is in the heart of every “happy” person..!!

The book talks about the concept of love in the most beautiful way I’ve ever come across... it does not talk about eternal love... it does not talk about sacrifices.. It does not talk about pain... it’s just talks about how when you love someone truly with all your heart you want to be a better person... you want to set things right.. You want to improve yourself and thus things fall in place... The subject of love inspires a beautiful lyricism in Coelho's writing “I love you because the whole universe conspired for me to come close to you."

This book is close to my heart for the simple fact that it appeals to me... I can relate with it... and identify myself with Santiago...I’m sure all of us can... because all of us have dreams and we are just waiting for them to come true...

The book is a combination of words of destiny, dreams, simplicity, philosophy and wisdom...

And it makes me want to dream ………..more..!!

p.s thank you dush..!!

Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. was one of the most influential American writers of the 20th century.At once a optimist and a cynic, Vonnegut's love for humanity recognized and embraced each of its shortcomings. With his satirical blend of science fiction and humanism, Vonnegut gifted us with his clever one-liners and pearls of wisdom mixed in with the occasional dirty drawing.
Following are a few of the gems he cast along the way.

Do it anyway!

Just when I thought I will never find out where to start and what to do I came across this...

Though I don’t believe and follow a lot of things he says, some of his principles do come handy…!!

So I realized that nothing I do is ever going to be good enough for anyone... even me...

since I’m a person who always wants to learn I’m never going to be satisfied...

Where ever I reach I will want to go further...

and when you have parents who think you can conquer the world..

well you never reach a destination….

I don’t know where I will be in the next few years… I don’t know if I will always do the right thing... I don’t know if I or the things I do will make a difference or not...

I’m just going to do them anyway..

even if they are as useless as the invention of hand dryers..!!

more on a lot of insignificant things later..!!
