Pillars of my life

“No, I can’t.”, I said.

Dimple said irritatingly, as always, “I am not gonna ask again. Just do as directed.”

“But, you know that I can’t because….” and I was shown THE SILENCE sign by her, i.e., index finger on lips asking me to OBEY as said. I didn’t say a single word more. I knew that if I don’t do as asked, she’ll be mad at me and I didn’t wanted that. She’s been my support since the beginning of time. Yes, she’s my sister.

I write this post not because of any knowledge sharing purpose. This is just a way to show my love for my sisters and the people who have always suppoerted me through thick and thin.

Dimple has always been the one who has believed in me from the start, even before I started believing in myself. Whenever we converse, I say things like above, that “I can’t” or “I do not know how to do this.” and there she comes to my rescue(over and over again), to make me believe, to make me feel confident about the stuff I do and asking me to TRY because failure/success is the result(or the output) and it ain’t in my hands. What I can do best is give my best shot(or in cases, multiple attempts) and that will be the input and there should be no lack of that.

She’s awesome and then there comes another Angel. Her name’s Pooja. She’s younger to me but her thoughts just makes me feel and realize, “How come she’s so matured and can think straight?” I was naive and a fool when I was her age and then comes up with questions and explanations, which I didn’t think and it makes me think. Questions about Life, Love, pain, sacrifice and all I try is to answer as per my  best knowledge.

Both of them are not book lovers but what I love about them is when I go to a book store/vendor to buy books, they pitch in with all their interest and help me choose good books and also bargain the prices. Wish I could do the same when they go for shopping but that I can’t do 😛

New B’lore book collection. Want your hands on them? 😛

P.S.: I love you both a lot and all my other cousin sisters too. You all have been a source of inspiration for me in the ways, which I can’t explain and you won’t understand. Cheers to love. Cheers to life. I am happy to have such great people(family, friends, colleagues) in my life. See you all soon. And, today’s song pick is Drag me down sung by SOUMITRI & DARSHITH 😀 Yeah, you heard it right. We sung this song, so feel free to listen and share your feedback.

Can I be Santiago from The Alchemist?

I read this somewhere, “Dreams are wishes with strong determination” and how true is that. We all have dreams. Dreams to achieve success & happiness. Some pursue their dreams like Santiago from The Alchemist. Just as Santiago had to go through so many hurdles to achieve, we all have to too.

These hurdles shape us. Once we cross them, they define us. Most of us fear to cross these hurdles, fearing what will we find on the other side. That’s a mystery for sure but something which pursuers want and hence it’s not a hindrance for them to follow their dreams.

This world knows us by how many bucks we earn. This world is judgemental and one thing is sure that our happiness DOESN’T depend on this world’s verdict of our stature. To be happy we have to earn in our means. Doing things we love & then the work will be in our blood. It’s not that each one of us follows their heart and get into the profession they want to.

Similarly, I am an IT professional. I like the work but my dream profession would be being a librarian. I know it seems crazy but that is what I had in my mind once I saw our college library. It was huge & filled with study books. Only a handful of novels were there.

I want to be a librarian and keep it full with novels & books. I want to read all those books by being there day & night. No need of anyone’s company or any other thing. I wish someone would give me money for reading books I like 😀

Life is a constant struggle and the struggle is on and hope that I can be a librarian for a day. I have started buying books and the count has increased this year more than before. I am not able to read much nowadays, neither blogs or books, but I will start both it all again sooner.

As I was talking to a WP friend yesterday, she said, “Finally, good days are here to stay.” I could not believe less. Good days are here to stay for all. With our dream profession, good days turn into happy & peaceful days too 🙂
