That night

There’s always a beginning

The pilot

Chapter 101

And that’s why there was that night

Our first together as friends

Just introduced that same day

Talking in syllables

Trying not to sound interested

Cutting the conversations midway

And then it came

The wise evening

With its cool breeze and drizzle

The weather turned class

The tension faded

Conversations became longer

Longer became the day

Food was shared

And so were many other things

Like favorite color, movie, books

The more the time passed

The more close we became

And soon the night fell on us

Our other friends

Receded to their beds

But we weren’t tried

We wanted to share more and discuss more

We didn’t want that day to finish so soon

And the night was young

And so were her eyes, her lips

Her curly hair swaying our her face

I so wanted to brush them aside

But I was scared

Maybe I will face yet another rejection in life

But then she came near

And hold my hand

And arms in arms

We walked down the road

She in her bubbly mood

Moving her head to and fro

Me smiling silently

Thinking where was she for so many years

But, it all didn’t matter

Because now we were together

I am grateful for that night

Which got us so closer

And also for the friends

Which got us introduced

And this is how that beautiful night

Is still young in both our hearts ❤

P.S.: As you know, I got a YouTube channel where I share my travel/motivation talks. You can subscribe to the channel @ Darshith Badiyani. Today’s song is Get Lucky of  Daft Punk.

Let there be everything

Yo!

In this beautiful month of September

Let there be work

Let there be play

Let there be smiles

Let there be satisfaction

Let there be humor

Let there be gifts

Let there be music

Let there be books

Let there be laughter

Let there be hugs

Let there be travel

Let there be festive

Let there be silence

Let there be ignorance

Let there be judgment

Let there be anger

Let there be sleep

Let there be rest

Let there be excitement

Let there be life

Let there be you

Let there be me

Let there be us ❤

P.S.: This is for each individual out there who lives in routine facing some of all these things. Let there be love. I am becoming a fan of this song of Bruno Mars named That’s what I like.  Feel free to check out my motivational/travel videos @ Darshith Badiyani.

 

Be brave, be selfish, be you!

Yo!
Me!
I am me!
Meet me!
Greet me!
I am a speck of dust
Yet, I am important
You know why?
Because I am alive
Because I exist
I breathe
I laugh
I smile
I cry
I express
I feel
It’s all important
For me because
That’s what makes me who I am
And I am awesome!
Got any doubts?
Please, don’t ask!
Do I care?
Yeah, damn, I don’t!
I love vulgar words
I love to express myself
I love to show who I am actually
I care for you
I like and love you
But you’re never a priority
Because my priority is me
It was difficult to digest it
Learn it
And, thankfully, I did!
I am everything, I know it!
I am grateful for all the things
The sun, the sky, the moon,
the flowers, people, family,
smiles here and smiles there,
hugs, stolen kisses, winks
All the things
But, all of those stop existing
If I stop to exist
If I don’t take care of myself
If I am not my own priority
I am grateful for these selfish thoughts
It has made me happy
It has given me time to invest on things I love
I am happy to be selfish if that makes me happy
Because smiles here, on my face, are important
So are yours, but first,
smiles here and then smiles there
If it is smiles there first,
then for you, it is too,
smiles here and smiles there,
So always the first person,
I, me, myself
I am grateful for such happy times

Be brave, be selfish, be you!

 

Last weekend I went on a #soloTrek to Shivagange and I loved it. You can tell I am selfish. The hell I care. I love to spend time with myself. If you don’t love/like to be alone, trust me, you’re boring. Start making your life an adventure. Do things you fear. I feared to go on a solo trek, I did it. I conquered it. I was 2640.3 feet above the ground, bare foot, scared, but moving forward. I have shared pics and videos of the place. Feel free to go to the place, if you’re near by Bangalore.

P.S.: One of the new songs which I like to listen to is What lovers do by Maroon5.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lure the hero

Superman-Man-of-Steel

Heroes are our idols. We all want to be like them. Let it be Spiderman, or Ironman, or Superman. We try to imbibe their good characteristics in us and love to broadcast it to all.

Heroes emerge during the time of need, when the times are difficult and when the situation demands them to take a stand. It’s guaranteed that a hero will announce himself then because that’s what heroes do, come to the spotlight so that others don’t suffer unnecessarily.

All the villains know how to bring the hero out from the crowd. They lure the hero out by cornering them(not in reality) but creating such circumstances or hurting/troubling the innocent and out comes the hero.

I mentioned Spiderman, and Superman earlier because they are SuperHeroes and we all want to have such powers but we have to real and practical and hence this post is about HEROES minus the Super 😛

So this proves that heroes are so easy to lure. In this world, what we all lack is, we don’t know that we all have that hero within us. We lack belief. We lack the faith in ourselves. Once we understand this, heroes will be everywhere, and no villains, and no luring the hero out. We have to wear the badge of a HERO on our sleeves and not let it be something that only resides within and what we dream of always. We have to be a Hero in reality and then only it will be smiles here, smiles there, and smiles everywhere ❤

 

P.S.: Today’s song pick is We don’t talk anymore of Charlie Puth. The beats of this song is something that I love ❤ What are the latest songs that you are fond of? How is 2017 treating you? Doing A-Z challenge?

Do you know what I did last February?

As I mentioned in my last blog Struggling days and me, I have resigned from my job because I got a good opportunity somewhere else. I did all the hard work in my previous job and I was not there to reap what I sow 😛

Now I am serving my notice and I can’t be sadder because of the bonds I have formed here and the love I have received. Still, one has to go for his betterment. My time has come.

It’s just that I hadn’t written since a long time and I DO NOT ever want to walk away from my writings or traveling. Everything else is fine. Jobs come and go, people come and go, happiness comes and go, love come and go. What stays is football and passion(writing/reading/video making) ❤

How was your Valentine’s month? Mine was good because I roamed with bloggers and attended weddings of Pratyusha & Nimitha

And now, the best, i.e., Video about the trip and some gyan 😛

P.S.: April 2016 was special because I started Vlogging and my life has changed for the best. I have made awesome vlogging friends and people have heartily welcomed me as a motivational speaker and that actually gives me a great sleep in the night. Today’s song is Who Am I To Stand In Your Way by Chester Lee ❤

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! ❤
