AtoZ challenge Day01 (A for A@#!)

Ready? *For today? Yes!*
Steady? *please don’t make me emotional*
Go! *this is what I love the most*

 

Today marks the 1st day of the A to Z challenge 2016. It’s my first time in the challenge & I am going to learn so many things all together.

“Smiles here & smiles there” has gone 1 level up from today. I have made a YouTube channel in which I will share inspirational thoughts & other random yet relevant thoughts & also some of my personal experiences. You can subscribe to the channel @ Darshith Badiyani.

For today’s alphabet ‘A’, I had many words to talk about like Amplify, Ascend, Attitude, Accept, Artificial, Aim but I didn’t on any of those. To check out the word on which I share my thoughts is in the below video.

I would be grateful to you all if you like, comment, share & subscribe to my new channel so that maximum people can connect to my words. Help spreading the positivity and spreading smiles.

With this new channel, I hope to spread smiles here & smiles there & smiles everywhere 😀

P.S.: Today’s song pick is also on ‘A’. It’s As long as you love me of Backstreet boys. And, I follow many people in WP but there are some special souls out there and three of them are AllisonAadhira & Aditi. Their names also start with ‘A’. So you know what all is coming in the future A to Z challenge posts. But do you really know what’s coming? 😉 Have a great day & see you in YouTube ❤

 

Bura na mano Holi hai

Days are considered as BEST when it is spent well with the people you love. That is how most of us define ‘Happiness’.With the days of festival nearing, the excitement and the preparations increase multiple folds. Yes! Holi is almost here and there has to be so many preparations and invitations and celebrations.

Down the memory lane is always full of smiles, friends and craziness. Holi memories are no different. One thing is sure that in other festivals we all are recognizable individually but in Holi, nope. The case is different because we all look the same like some aliens dropped from several UFOs and are crazily happy to see one another. Were we all separated in Kumbh ka Mela(a mass Hindu pilgrimage)? Maybe, yes! 😀

Holi is a national holiday so it becomes really easy for everyone to gather and share some good time together. On this day, being crazy is being normal. And we all are super normal on Holi(hope you know what I mean) 😀

We play with colors, dance to loud music and have unlimited bhang(Indian version drink which makes us HIGH and it used to be the most preferred drink of Lord Shiva). The best is the dancing to loud music because instead of it making us tired, it gives us more strength, it is full of fun and it changes the smiles to waves of laughter. It’s all we want on a holiday and among friends.

Some holidays are meant to be stayed indoors and chill. Other holidays are never meant to be stayed indoors and are to be enjoyed with family & friends & shout at the top of our voice. The famous KHAIKE PAAN BANARAS WALA song is something which is heard in every corner of the country while celebrating this holiday. “Bura na mano Holi hai” is the slogan sung by all on that day 😀

What’s mind boggling is Holi is present in HOLIday. Why? There’s no connection between them but it’s good that we can find a connection. So, if we don’t celebrate Holi then there’s no point in having HOLIdays.

Some of the previous year’s pics are below.

At office

With my friends, it’s about tearing one another’s t-shirt and playing with a bare chest. I think that’s common with guys. We all go to a nearby river(Mahanadi River) to take a bath after playing with colors.

The scorching sun was the ONE & ONLY thing which used to be the only hindrance for some of my friends and them bailing out from celebrating. But, since some years, the quality of colors has also degraded and there has been excessive addition of chemicals in the colors so now that adds to the already present hindrance.

But, all the above are just a mere hurdle to cross because being with loved ones counts above the rest. About the sun, not much can be done and hence we make sure that we play Holi within a party hall or in the parking lot of our apartment. The later is fun 😀

After playing Holi, the lunch is always plenty because it’s ordered from a temple. The food is called Abadha/Mahaprasad. And after all the enjoyment & good food, what we all crave for is sleep & we get it. 10 hours sleep is minimum since evening to next day morning 😀

Before writing this post, I was thinking that Holi is far. But now, I think that it is so near and Thursday will be here sooner and for it preparations are to be done. Let me go & call my friends and make arrangements. See you soon guys and have a safe Holi.

I have a request for all, please DO NOT forcefully color anybody. Invite them and if they deny, just go to them and put a TIKKA on their forehead(as a gentleman) or sprinkle colors on them(like a boss) and let them chase you to make things square(like a HOLIday). Also, don’t color animals because the added chemicals may cause some repercussions and causing trouble for others should never be any part of fun.

I’m pledging to #KhulKeKheloHoli this year by sharing my Holi memories atBlogAdda in association with Parachute Advansed.

Yet another true love

We are promised ‘True love’
By the people we meet
From the stories we read
How special we feel
Our hopes soar high
Our feet leaves the ground
Our wings starts flapping
And the magic spreads
It’s the ultimate happiness
It’s the heaven on Earth
Everything is perfect
Nothing is missing
Everything is tension free
And it changes..
Reality strikes
Chaos begins
Spreads like a chain reaction
Things go beyond our control
In the blink of an eye
Woah!
Perfect life turns upside down
Confusion and pain
And hurt reigns
We can’t see things clearly
Because our eyes are full of tears
And our heart is full of hurt
And this is how it feels
And this is how it turns out to be
When we are betrayed
Betrayed by OUR TRUE LOVE
But according to them
We may not be their true love
And hence the betrayal
Life is shaken
Post-chaos
Life is never the same
Still we survive
We smile
We try to find that
Earthly heaven in the imperfections
And this is how we live
We try to find the chunks
Of that painful true love
In the million little things
And one day we wake up to
No pain & no hard feelings
We have forgotten that true love
And we again start the search
For yet another true love..

P.S.: Today’s topic is Animals of Maroon5 😀 Weekend’s almost gone 😦

Untangling

I am not able to read most of your posts.

I am not able to post myself.

Shall I blame anybody/anything?

No, no one is to be blamed

I am just being occupied

By some other priority stuff

But I don’t ever forget the wonderful

People out here

And now I was reading a post on SLEEP

Yes, I can read about sleep

And having a good 8-hour sleep

Is not much of within my power nowadays

I realized that SLEEP is important

For Us & for God too

God or higher energy, whatever you believe in

Why?

We need sleep

So that we can stay away from these

Worldly possessions and be sane

And God needs us to sleep

So that He can make sure

That our problems are lessened

When we wake up

We are like a tangled knot

Confused and feeling as if

We’re in a maze

And God tries his best

To untangle us

And make us free

P.S.: Today’s pick os What makes you beautiful of One direction. Keep smiles with you 🙂

Respect the difference

Music
Is love
You can argue
Or you can agree
I won’t judge
It ain’t my character
I know what it means to me
It may mean something different
To you and I would
Accept your meaning
Of music and rhythm
So don’t try to force
Your meaning onto me
And make me follow that
Different people
Different perspective
Different meanings
Even though same words
Same situation
Same feeling
And I would beg you
Don’t restrict this to music only
Respect the meanings
Of other’s words
Other’s feelings
Other’s thoughts
We express things differently
Because we feel differently
Respect the difference

P.S.: Today’s pick is Counting stars of one republic 😉

It’s all about muses..

Ideas
Thoughts
Muses
Non stop
Asking me
Begging me
To pen them down
Looking at me
With those soft, delicate eyes
Just like that of a kid
Who cries for attention
And I surrender
Saying
“Okay! Let me get my pen & paper.”
But they say
They can’t wait for pen & paper
They don’t want me
To pen them down
Instead they want me
To feel the emotions first
They teach me to live
They teach me to love
They teach me to be alive
And then once I learn all those
They say that
Now I deserve to write
On all the things I learned
But then I have a doubt always
“Can I write on everything I feel?”
I mean EVERYTHING
And silently my heart whispers
Everything can’t be expressed
But everything can be felt
I feel blessed and lucky
To feel everything
Because without
These ideas and thoughts
And these muses
I can’t be who
I want to be
