People over places

I think touching lives is better than traveling to new places.

I have always preferred people over places. And my last trip to Kerala was all about people, some known, some unknown, and most close to my heart.

It is difficult to write how can we connect with people so easily without even knowing them since long and such is the bond with many of my blogger friends like Nimitha and KP and Nisha and Sri di.

The bond is so strong that even our families know one another and we have met each other’s parents. That is the next level. Maybe it is all about human frequency and the correct level of kindness and innocence that bond us all.

Irrespective of what it may be, I am thankful for all the respect and support and smiles given to me whenever I meet such people and the heart touching people of Kerala knows all about it.

Here are some of the pics —

people can sue me for posting this because I do not know most of them but still, it was fun to attend a wedding

Trust me, trusting people over places or process is the best decision of my life.

P.S.: I love people but then they are the ones who can’t give rest to others so we’re all screwed 😀 I will be going home next week, so, have fun at your respective homes and let me do dandia 😛 And, remember my YouTube channel, Darshith Badiyani, please do the honors 😀

Was it love or one-night stand ?!!

CFDTaAKWIAAZigw

Was it love?

Or a longer version of

One-night stand?

We knew each other

And don’t misunderstand

It for a deep relationship

It was all hi, hello, and bbye

Added with sex

And then again vanish

From each other’s life

All to meet again

For moments of pleasure

Or satisfaction or some change

Just to be puff again

And that was satisfying

To me and to her also

Or that’s what she said

I didn’t try to dig deep

Into what she actually felt

Because that would leave me

All vulnerable and alone and beatable

And just a hint of the breeze

Will be my downfall

So to avoid my downfall

I played with her

Or again was it me being played?

Every moment of separation was chaos

And seldom we thought about each other

Maybe mostly when we were in the

Arms of our better halves

But we missed & imagined each other

During that moment of pleasure

When the toes are all curled

Lips are all wet

Fingers on the back of the skin

Of the other

Just hoping to open eyes

To the familiar face of her

Smiling back & wanting me more

And it was always my better half there

Whom I loved no doubt

But definitely

Less than her

And after the act

I was always happy

With my better half but

Then why do I miss her during the act?

I have been pondering on that

Since we were apart and will

Keep on pondering till

My heart & soul & body are apart

What is love and what is One-night stand?

Ask me and all you will get

Is silence !!

P.S.: This was a draft since more than 2 years and I do not know how twisted my mind was or it still is 😀 Hope you enjoyed the chaotic taste of love and yeah, have a great weekend! And as September is on the verge of ending, this post’s song is Meant to be by Bebe Rexha. And, remember my YouTube channel, Darshith Badiyani, please do the honors 😀

Parents being parents

When we’re kids and our parents go away to tend to their work, we cry for their undivided attention, and they feel happy that we crave for them

And when we go far from them in our youth, they happily wave us goodbye and then cry when alone

Parents being parents
And, kids being kids

Happiness one time
And, sadness the other

How times change?
We never know
They never show
That is how it is
Life goes on…

P.S.: Lately, I feel that I have not been my best self. But, I am reading good books and loving everything about life. Which book are you reading? I am reading Blink by Malcolm Gladwell. You can download the PDF. I love it. No new songs. This is a chance to share new songs too 😀

 

One of the many mothers who cry

Today was the last of the 25 days I spent at home
Because of my father’s health
And I had to leave 12 hours early to catch my flight
Because I had to collect some hospital documents
And it is tragic that you can’t spend extra time with your mother
We were making thepla together this morning
So that I can eat them at the airport whenever hungry
And the fan of the kitchen was not switched on
I saw a drop of sweat dancing on the tip of my mother’s nose
And I told her to switch on the fan
And then I realized that she had more tears than sweat on her face
And her eyes were all red
And she was trying to hold on to her tears
And I felt like the stupidest son ever
But this is how goodbyes are
And then we all have to part ways
Sooner or later

I wish I could make it better and easier for her and others, but, sadly I cannot.

Can you even smile?

XFINITE

Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.―Dyer

Look at the world. Tell me what you see.

You see billionaires. You see celebrities. You see entrepreneurs. You see success. You see the money. You see cool cars. You see luxury. You see fame. You see trends. You see confidence. You see failure.

Here’s what you don’t see.

You don’t see happiness. You don’t see nature. You don’t see freedom. You don’t see peace. You don’t see balance. You don’t see fulfillment. You don’t see the passion. You don’t see love. You don’t see memories. You don’t see you.

All it takes is a Peek-A-Boo before the baby starts laughing. Their laughter is so pure without restraint, hesitation, or fear of being judged. There is no self-control, discipline, or restriction. They laugh when they are happy, and cry when they are sad. They are…

Unrealistic dreams & realistic goals

Yo!

‘I will go to the moon’ & ‘I will go to the moon tomorrow’ has a lot of difference. And the word is ‘tomorrow’.

The former represents a far-away realistic dream because I can achieve it(if I aspire for it) and the later represents an unrealistic dream because I don’t have the proper academics or the links to go to the moon tomorrow 😋

So, the time frame is a major factor for categorizing our dreams as realistic or unrealistic.

So, knowingly or unknowingly, we all have broken our dreams and goals into long-term dreams and short-term goals.

In this case, ‘going to the moon’ can be a long-term dream and the realistic short-term goals can include getting proper education and working as an astronaut to achieve it. Now, at present, I don’t have any.

And hence, if I dream of ‘going to the moon tomorrow’, I hope for all of to agree, that it kind of seems unrealistic.

So where am I heading to?
We all have dreams of getting better jobs, getting more salary, traveling more, being more jovial, and many more.

So, we can safely think of the above list as UNREALISTIC DREAMS because these are long-term goals(even if the duration of long-term is as less as 1 week) 😋

So, to achieve any of the above, we have to prepare, we have to make some realistic short-term goals like studying consistently (for a better job), or finalizing a destination for the next trip and with whom would we love to go there(for more traveling).

Why I am thinking of this approach is because Maths told me so. I cannot go from 1 to 10 by not going through 2,3,4,…,9 😉 so as per me, the unrealistic dream is 10, and I am standing at 1, and the realistic goals are each of 2,3,…,9 😎

And following this logic of long-term dreams and short-term goals, before you know, you’ll be standing there at 9 and taking a deep breath and in slow motion step on 10 with a feeling of a champion! 😍

So, are you ready to become a champion? This is the chance.

P.S.: A humble request is to please read as many books as possible and also each person has different ways of achieving their dreams and if your method is simpler and better than this, please feel free to let me know.

Being Prepared

Sreedom of Expression

It is the beginning of a new month.And Augusts are always special. Often, there are an umpteen number of holidays and festivals lined up in August – which would naturally mean fun time with family. August Is a very special month for me too. Both my father-in-law and husband have their birthdays in August and our marriage anniversary is in August too. Incidentally my grandparents too were married in August. Hence, the month had always been special for me.My son having completed his board exams this year, my husband and I had planned for a gala wedding anniversary this year. But what we hadn’t planned for was a future without one of us. So, here I am – facing the August rain – alone!

Death, sickness and separation isn’t a pleasant thing to talk about but standing at this juncture I’ve realized that it is wiser to look at the…
