Mix Tape: My version

12 Dec

Put together a a musical playlist of songs that describe your life, including what you hope your future entails.

That’s an interesting topic. It’s like doing an ‘about me’ page. You know you can go on and on, but when you get down to it, it’s so hard to find something. But I’ll give it a shot!

Where do we start? Well, since this year has been rough and inspiring, I’ll first get to the song that kept me through.

1. Someone’s watching over me! by Hilary Duff.
This song has something in it that loosens me, makes me cry and feed in me a faith that I’m never alone. No, it doesn’t remind me of someone I’ve lost. It just reminds me of the existence of God. It’s always been in my playlist. Thanks Hilary!

2. Stronger by Kelly Clarkson.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over cause you’re gone

When he broke my heart, I needed just this one! The song has been by my side like a friend for almost an year now and makes me feel good every time.

3. Stand Back by Joan Osborne
This song uplifts me like none else. It’s fun and inspiring, unleashes my inner self and is pretty much all I want to be.

4. Leave out all the rest by Linkin Park.
This song brings a tear in my eye every time. When I am confused that of all I know, who loves me the most I listen to this song and I can picture who’d go all the way to find me if I ever went missing.

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I’ve done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed
And don’t resent me
And when you’re feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest.
The small excerpt above would probably be my message to this world whenever I have to leave it.
5. Put your records on by Corinne Bailey Rae.
It’s as fresh as sunshine, as beautiful as rains and as intimate as my life. I love this song!
Although this list is subject to change, yet for now I’m pretty much done. But then as i said, you can never do such a topic enough justice. 🙂

Big Lessons in tiny pleasures: Part 3

8 Sep

You are still alive in our hearts baby!

Foreword: I am a huge dog person. So, in the post ahead if I narrow down my opinion to the best creatures of this world, which would be dogs, then I expect a lenience in your criticism. Also, this post is dedicated to my beloved pet dog Sheru. Darling, may you rest in peace.

I do not recall a child who hasn’t wanted or had a pet. A pet is like the best better half you can have. A pet is like a kid that can be trained. A pet is a living soft toy (pardon my metaphorisation of pet with a dog).

These are the lessons that I’ve learnt from all my pets I’ve ever had which include Michael, Lucy, Suzy, Tiger and Sheru. You sweethearts have had a big impact on my life!

  1. Loyalty: The first and most important lesson I believe every pet teaches is being faithful. Dogs are renowned for it, but I’ve had a heart-warming experience with my Granpa’s  parrot, dad’s pigeon and cousin’s monkey. The monkey’s name was donut and it died within 3 days of my cousin’s fatal accident.
  2. Concentration: It’s a small observation that every animal has an extreme level of concentration. This may be a result of the fact that they do not have to worry about their looks or career or crush. Whatever be the reason but it’s worth learning that everypet has a hell lot of concentration and learns extremely fast.
  3. Aggression: Have you ever had an encounter with an angry bird? Do you believe teasing a monkey is harmless? It’s in your benefit that you reply to both the questions as a big NO!
    You annoy an animal in the matters that are important to it and beware it can do anything!
    So, if it’s important to you, fight for it.
  4. Simplicity: My favourite quote of all times is “HANDLE STRESS LIKE A DOG. IF YOU CAN’T EAT IT OR PLAY WITH IT, PEE ON IT AND WALK AWAY.” Similarly, if you can do something about a problem then do it. Otherwise bury it.
  5. Stand for your fellows: My granny used to say, “A pig when in trouble, finds other pigs around for help which makes us believe humans are even worse!”
    Isn’t that true? Why is standing up for others so much insignificant to us?

Pets are a blessing from the heaven above. If you’ve never had one, go for it! Even if it’s as small as a goldfish. You’ll learn a lot and definitely evolve!

P.S. I know metaphorisation is not a word!
😉

You, me and love

25 Jul

As i was wandering through different folders in my laptop, i found the following. It’s a poem i wrote almost 11 months ago, when i was head over heels in love with this guy. Not even close to someone who can write a poem, but i still scribble. Reading this poem once again, everything came flooding back. The togetherness, the faith, the moments, the kisses, the hugs, the yearning, the naughty games, the suppressed laughters, the hang outs, the nick names, the ususals, the unususals, the promises, the dreams and then the SHATTERING! Anyways, i wanted to share this one with my fellow bloggers, the only society i have for now. Therefore, here it is:

You, me & People

People tell me that you are not as I think

They say you are all black with just a shell of pink

According to them I should not trust you as I do

Coz you are not what you are supposed to

They keep telling your love for me is a trap

It’s ugly inside and what I see is just a wrap

They want me to believe you are different behind my back

And when it will be exposed, my heart would crack

In short they want me to get away from you

Or else one day truth will cut right through

Me? Oh! I never reply to what they say

Not that I don’t have words that weigh

Just that it does not matter to me

I am happy with what I see

It’s my love and I am to decide

And your love is where I confide

I do not deny I may get hurt

But what’s the point enjoying rain fearing dirt

I am myself with you, nothing to pretend

You bring me peace, in my soul you blend

Let them say for its theirs to find wrong

For me your love is a true song

If u hurt me ever it can be taken

But without a reason my faith can’t be shaken

Don’t you feel pressure to prove your love

Be yourself that’s the most I love.
