Struggling days and me..

In most of the cases, and also different times in my life, I have been there during the hard times, the struggling days. But I am never there when things settle down. When things become stable.

Similarly, I can predict that I won’t be there again to reap the fruits of my hard work. I feel like I am a person silently working as a charm, never complaining, always reliable, totally content with whatever happens with me. I am happy to be such a person but it ain’t always a beautiful picture. It ain’t always the rosy ending.

This time again, I will fade away. This time again, I will march away from the place where reward will be waiting for me. I know it’s too early and difficult to say goodbye because of the bonds and relationships that are formed. But we all, especially myself, gotta look at the bigger picture, which holds more sweeter fruit for me(I hope so) than the one I am leaving behind.

See you,

The guy readying for the new struggle ❤

P.S.: Today’s song pick is Fall by Ed Sheeran(again). I was introduced to this song by a good friend and I love it. And also, check out my new motivational video in YouTube. How’s this weekend serving you?

 

 

Woah! What a weekend!

Once in a while, we should have time for ourselves or in my sister’s words, “pamper yourself.” I did exactly the same by going to Cubbon park alone and read 100+ pages of “The Count of Monte Cristo”. I stress on 100+ pages because I was able to do that after so many months and years. It’s an achievement for me. I also watched the long awaited movie Dead poets society and it was so good. CARPE DIEM is something which I will also have to ingrain in my character. Such a touching movie and on top of that I also watched

I also watched the long awaited movie “Dead poets society” and it was so good. CARPE DIEM is something which I will also have to ingrain in my character. Such a touching movie and on top of that I also watched “Kaabil” with my roommates. It definitely was a great weekend. But hey! Saturday is today and all those things were done by me on Thursday and Friday. You ask didn’t I have

But hey! Today is Saturday and all those things were done by me on Thursday and Friday. You ask didn’t I have office? I had but I took leave, just like that, as ‘me-time’ because it is what life is all about.

You know what my resolution of 2015 was? It was to spend 1 sleepless night per month and I successfully achieved it. But with passage of time, we change, we evolve. Similarly, now I am trying to sleep early and wake up early and sleep proper. I am on track for that but this weekend, I slept late and woke early and I was happy because of the old times sake. I was also able to be the old Darshith I used to be.

I am loving my ‘me-time’ and now I am looking forward to making more videos and read more books and watch more movies. Hope you’re also having a perfect weekend! What’s the definition of a perfect weekend for you? Let me know so that I can also do some of the exciting stuff just like you.

P.S.: Check out my latest video and feel free to share your views. I am in love with Ed Sheeran’s songs Castle on the Hill & Shape of you! ❤

 

 

 

I am so happy

Presently I am reading The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka. It’s a great book and I am liking it till now. Just some 40 add pages are remaining (total pages are 100) 😀

I took the bus from office to home in the evening today. I took out the book from my bag to read. I saw the bus conductor approaching, I kept the book aside, took out my wallet. What happened next was astonishing for me.

The conductor came to me and instead of taking money from me, took the book and started reading. I was stunned. You ask why? Because in India, there are very less literate people who would opt for such a profession and he was totally engrossed in the book.

He went to collect money from other passengers and again came and sat beside me reading the book. I was so happy seeing him reading the book.

I wish he could read more and have a good life just as he’s imagined for himself. He is B.A. pass (Bachelor of Arts) and due to some family issues he chose this. I gave him the book and we shook hands and at the end of my trip, we both were happy souls ❤

P.S.: Ed Sheeran’s Shape of you is my new favorite 😀 I secretly took a pic of the guy reading. Hope this is good.16144932_1184966048223110_1196503601_o

2016 in nutshell

2016 is long gone,10 days into 2017, and this year has already started leaving its footprints in all our lives. Be sure that I ain’t gonna bore you with the highlights of 2016.

But I would just show you what all good things happened with me(read Smiles here and Smiles there 😛 )

I started making Vlogs and I think that was the best decision ever because it widens my thoughts and helps me help others in whatever way possible. Presently I have 65 subscribers on YouTube. My aim is to reach 1000 by the end of next year(I think I am being far fetched but I want to achieve the figure).

I also started meeting blogger friends in real life and it couldn’t be any better.

In 2016, I have met —

In 2017, I am going to meet whom all —

  • Bhavya
  • Rupali (you had to be in 2016 list :P)
  • KP
  • Upen
  • Enigma
  • Karthik
  • Jackie
  • NJ
  • Sri Di

Reading books was slow this year but I am happy with the number of books I have been gifted and I have gifted, so 2017, BEWARE, I am going to read much more 😉

So, let’s see what happens this year but be sure there will be more meetings and more videos for sure 😉

P.S.: I also wish to write more blogs this year as compared to last year 😉 Stay tuned because I will be sharing many more videos very soon in my YouTube Channel Darshith Badiyani.

Crazy Christmas

Everyone knows December is all about celebrations, fun, and smiles. Similarly, this December of 2016 is the same for me even Christmas has not yet arrived.

I was never a believer in Santa because it all seemed fake to me. It still seems fake because of the obvious reasons like Santa is fictional. But, I realized something this Christmas, it’s the happiness which festivities bring in our lives.

In our office, we are playing Secret Santa and I was surprised to see that how Santa’s used to think OUT OF THE BOX and give several gifts to their child and make them feel happy. The smile and radiation on the face of the gift receivers was priceless. This made me realize about the true motive of Santa.

Maybe, just maybe, after going through this learning of creating happiness instead of waiting for it, made me realize that we all crave for Happiness and the more we share, the better.

I would also like to request that not to limit ourselves from spreading happiness to our near and dear ones and also look out for those who have less hope in this world and no source of happiness. If we can share some of our time with them and share quality time with them, then that’d be one of the blessed festivals for us.

Hope y’all have a great time ahead for Christmas and New year and I have started liking life more after understanding some of the many things what life is all about. Take care and see you soon ❤

P.S.: I have heard many of the Christmas songs of Michael Buble and I would like to share it. Jingle Bells by Michael Buble ❤ Happy Weekend!

From Blind spot to Yellow spot

We’re born blind

We’re born naive

We’re born innocent

We’re born to be born again

We’re always in God’s blind spot

And there we remain

Until we give our best

Until we try hard

Until we give it all

Then only, slowly and gradually

We start our journey from

The Blind spot to

The yellow spot

And, life starts changing

From good to better to best

The journey ain’t easy

It can be traveled alone

We gotta have faith in us

We gotta have friends to support us

We have to start this journey

Sooner or later

Or regret it forever

And I tell you

Regret ain’t the best of things for you

It’s always working hard

Giving it a shot

Giving it several tries

And succeeding

Because we got one life

Because we gotta prove

Because being in the blind spot

Ain’t so beautiful

So, go ahead and

start your journey to

The Yellow spot

It’s waiting for your presence

P.S.: This topic is so close to me and the idea was given by Aditi. She is a great blogger and has awesome personality. Another blogger, Shweta aka Bollywoodarian, requested a vlog on Insecurites and here it is. Hope the vlog helps everyone in some way ❤

Is it not yet 2017?

The bells will ring

The songs will be sung

Smiles will be spread

Love will be shared

The most exciting month is here

To bid adieu to this year

To welcome the next one

To assess ourselves and our deeds

So we can be better tomorrow

Forget the fear

Forget the lies

Forget the tears

Let it all die with this year

Start afresh

Start anew

Build an empire

Where YOU are the best view

For others to follow

For others to reach out for

Help them

Because we are social beings

Don’t let a moment of anger

Destroy years of bonding

Don’t let stinky thoughts in your mind

Or let them out from your mouth

Forget it all

Nothing stays for a longer time or forever

Hold yourself

Know yourself

Guide yourself

There’s no need to calculate time

Let alone mere years

Just smile and forget it all

And have an awesome new year ❤

P.S.: I know it’s strange that I am wishing all a VERY HAPPY 2017 so early. That’s fine. I like it. BTW, Happy AIDS day 😛 Crisis are always there in lives but what matters is to what we give importance and for me, it’s always smiles and warmth. What do you give most importance to in your life?
