Yo! You! Happy Children’s day ;)

Trust me on this that I didn’t think of writing this post ๐Ÿ˜€

But, seeing people share their childhood pics and sharing posts which bring out the child in us, made me want to write this. After all, I am also a child inside ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, tell me, you think you’re crazier than me? You’re more childish than me? You’re more fun than me? You’re cute than me?

I bet I am best on all the above except cuteness because my mother(I call her Mother India) used to drink chocolate Horlicks when she was pregnant with me. It’s no fault of mine ๐Ÿ˜‰ But such is life. We get rewarded/punished for things we weren’t a part of and then sometimes, we escape from things which were to be blamed on us ๐Ÿ˜›

I wish I had kids so that I can post cute, crazy pics of them here ๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyone volunteeringย for making my this dream true?ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hey! Listen, if you’re my relative or who thinks I am a good guy, this is a joke. If you’re really into me, this ain’t a joke, I am serious! ๐Ÿ˜€

Nevertheless, I love being a kid and I instantly like those who behave like one(and obviously are a kid inside) ๐Ÿ˜€ I won’t say I have had a harsh life, I have seen the worst of things in life, I haven’t. But yeah, I have had my days, tough days, and here I am all risen, all shining. We all have to fall, and then rise, because that’s how life is. That’s how we grow up. That’s how we mature. That’s how we start to realize the small things of life like eating a lollipop or Poppins ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, I will also share some of my funny pics and you’re free to judge me and also my friends ๐Ÿ˜‰ Happy Children’s day to one and all.

P.S.: Keep holding on to the child in you ๐Ÿ˜› Hence today’s song Hold on by Michael Buble ๐Ÿ˜‰ How are you? How is November going? I think I am back to writing blogs again and my videos have dried up, but I will be back ๐Ÿ˜€ Just hold on to me coming back for you ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you don’t know, check out my YouTube channel Darshith Badiyani.

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 โค

How is your September going on? I am going to Gujaratย from 22nd Sept to 2nd October. If you’re there and want to meet, please do let me know. Yo! Peace out! ๐Ÿ˜‰

What you do in the weekends..

Seriously! You have come to this post to know what to do in the weekends?

Nice! I will share what I do and I would like to do ๐Ÿ˜‰

What I do in the weekends–
= Spend quality time with friends
= Roam near about B’lore because we are new to this city and one can always get to see beautiful girls around ๐Ÿ˜›
= Go to parties and pubs and talk to strangers(read gals) and be-friend them ๐Ÿ˜‰
= Make motivational videos because it’s almost impossible to make them in the weekdays
= Do office work because work never ends ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
= Watch some movies(because I am not watching TV shows anymore)

And yes, the weekend is done and dusted and bids adieu far earlier than expected ๐Ÿ˜ž
Tell me, what do you do in the weekend? No matter weekend or weekday, all we gotta make sure that we have a good night’s sleep and for that, we gotta toil hard, watch out for our dear ones, try to spread smiles, and feel content no matter the situation we are in. No doubt, tomorrow will definitely be more good, more beautiful, more bright, more awesome, just like you, so try to make your today the best.
Yo! No shave November is on ๐Ÿ˜‰ what is up with you, guys? Enjoying life? Enjoying weekend? Keep smiling and spread smiles and if you want me to make videos on any topic, do let me know ๐Ÿ˜‰

That pencil stroke

That scribbling
That design
That graphite
That imperfection
That pencil stroke
Made my life
Made my dream
Made me believe
That I can make it a reality
Gave me strength
Gave me hope
Gave me a reason
To live my life
That piece of paper
With that pencil stroke
Will always be close to me
Safe in my trunk
Hidden within a pouch
Because thatโ€™s the dream
Dream to make this world
Better as I see it
I canโ€™t do it alone
I will need help
I will need friends
I will need accomplishes
But they all will come
At the right time
When I decide
To pursue my dream
To take it seriously
Make it happen
Make it a reality
It may take months & years
And even decades for my dream
To become real
But it definitely will
And before anything
Before any realization of my dream
That pencil stroke
Sealed my fate
Made me follow it endlessly

P.S.: This work is an inspiration from the movie The Walk. I seriously loved it. I think I watched it at the right time in my life. Todayโ€™s song pick Havenโ€™t met you yet of Michael Buble. I posted this same work hereย ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ˜€

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) ๐Ÿ˜€

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 ๐Ÿ˜€

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.ย 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 ๐Ÿ˜€

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 ๐Ÿ˜€

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.

Iโ€™m pledging to #KhulKeKheloHoli this year by sharing my Holi memories atBlogAdda in association with Parachute Advansed.

Those 6 & some of mine

Stories are so good to listen
Just remember those days
When our Granny used to start with
ONCE UPON A TIME
And our wild imagination
Would take you to hills
And mountains and landscapes
And kingdoms and queens
And prince charming to cruel King
To talking animals to aliens
To anything and everything
And now when we have grown up
With Granny gone and when with friends
We share our experiences and it NEVER starts with
ONCE UPON A TIME
But it starts with
YOU KNOW WHAT
I had my first beer on that day
Had my first kiss, first intimate relation
My first job & first salary
And first break up and
How I learned to move on
How I handle stuff even when things are bad
How I show I am mature to my friends
How I still behave innocent in front of my siblings & parents
How professionally I handle my clients
And how carefree I am with friends
And I love being carefree
Because friends won’t judge
I can open my heart to them
Tell all the weird stuff to them
And instead of judging
They will share their own weird stuffs
And the night will pass
And we will end up comparing
How weird we all have been
And then end up thinking
Why didn’t we share these before
And it was good to have some OUR time together
And then came the sun calling
Asking us to sleep
So that we can go to work later
And hoping we will have such
Wonderful times again with one another

 

P.S.: To all my friends and the wonderful bond we share
Let many more beautiful nights come
And we embrace our weirdness together โค

Yo! No song for today. Sorry! But, I will share this video. It’s of Friends re-union โค
