Others and us

Sometimes it feels like
We know others better
Than we know ourselves
And it feels true
And it is true too
In today’s world
We’re bombarded with so much information
We try to apply it all
Our knowledge about others
And we feel pride
That we know and sometimes
We judge others too
Not realizing
That if we would apply the same
On to ourselves
We would have become a more better person
A more understanding person
And this would lead us to more happiness
Because we would know how and what to tune in ourselves
To link to the channel of happiness
Now that we know more about others
We decide frequently
To try to find someone new
To know
To understand
And hence we keep on hoping from person to person
What would be ideal is?
Knowing thyself
Believing in us
And trying to talk
Trying to communicate
And express
And live a life of abundance

Not just yet another blogger

No! She was not just YET ANOTHER BLOGGER. She was my heart and so much close to me. I listen to her talk about her life and share her wisdom with me. She listens to me too 😉

It has been a good roller-coaster ride to know via WordPress and finally, I met her and her family last week. Yes, I met Sri Di. Our lovely Srichandra Mukherjee.

This meeting was an anticipated one which we had talked a lot about. And then when we met, we both couldn’t believe that we were there together.

As discussed over calls numerous times, we ate pizza and sweets and home-made food. We talked a lot and I also met Ruhaani(Sri Di’s daughter) and she’s one of the most talented kids I know. She loves KPop and she dances like a doll. She knows so many English songs and the best thing is she LOVES football and Neymar is her favorite 😉 Yeah and she loves to read novels ❤

We talked a lot and now I miss her when I am back home. I talked to Sri Di and Ruhaani over the phone but it’s not the same. I know for sure that I will be meeting these beautiful people again 😀

Don’t know how to express the great feeling of meeting such awesome people. I will share some pics and until next time.

A great time with many more to come ❤

Smiles here & smiles there to y’all 😉

P.S.: I have met 19 known bloggers already and I love meeting new people. When asked what drives me in life, I can say making others smile but to make myself smile and live is to travel and meet new and interesting people. Rest other stuff is for survival but this is for living and feeling alive. Today’s song pick is Royals by Lorde.

 

The struggle to make ends meet

I have seen the struggle
The struggle to feed oneself
The struggle to feed the family
The struggle to make ends meet
I cannot say that I have felt that struggle
Not specifically yet
But the pain is there to see
In the eyes of those who go through the same
The pride requesting them not to beg
But the hunger lowering their heads
And raising their palms for some money
For some help
To keep the hunger at bay
The desperate need of silencing
The bile juice which keeps on churning
Asking you to provide food to process
But life ain’t fair
We ain’t got no food
So, most of the times, we just drink water
With the hope that the next time
It will be some morsel of food
Instead of water going down our throats
This hope keeps us alive
Keeps us kicking
This spirit keeps us going
This pain makes us strong
We need to get out of our shells
And appreciate the people
Who are constantly going through this
Help them
Grow with them
Because not much can be achieved alone
But bigger and better things can be achieved together

P.S.: Today’s song pick is Out of Love by Alessia Cara. Have a grand week ahead.

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 😀

 

Learning from mental molestation..

The day comes

The night goes

It never ends

The circle of life

I need it to stop

Because there’s no

Breathing time

We live like cyborgs

I don’t think we even live

It’s like we’re wasted

For things that won’t be missed

I crave for my smile

I crave for my happiness

But it never comes

Elopped it stays

So, I turn my attention

To your smile and care

And all I am served is

Mental Molestation

I can’t take it anymore

I am all sore

Just let it pass by

Till the water is head-high

Then I will oppose

I will leave

Because I don’t believe in making people understand

If they had to, they would have

If they didn’t, they won’t ever!

Hence taking all the mental molest I can

It makes me strong

It makes me, me!

P.S.: I couldn’t have been listening to any other song in loop apart from Whatever it takes of Imagine Dragons at this time. How are you, peepal? 😀 I am reading Daring Greatly recently and it’s awesome. FYI, I am reading at the speed of the slowest snail 😛

My new old mantra!

My new old mantra is, “Travel and feel happy.”

Go to places you have not been before or never thought that you’ll ever go.

Go solo, go in small groups, know friends better, make new friends 😀

What’s your mantra? How to live life better? Plan for the weekend?

How difficult is it to think positive?

So! Yes, this time it’s not ‘Yo!’ 😀

I think I have met many people in my life. All kind of people, almost all. What hurts me to express is I am bad at expressing and then how people think negative things and stay with all the negativity.

I have been thinking for some days that how difficult is it to think positive, to think good things, and to understand that almost everything is in our mind. So, if we start to think happy, we certainly become happy, eventually.

I know I am writing this post from my perspective and hence I think it is easy to be happy and positive, but, I think I am ready to learn the difficult things of life and try to understand life from other’s perspective.

I think how we are brought up as a child has a larger effect on our thought process than anything else. But, how we see the world and feel the world and try to understand things is also important. It’s not that the same solution applies to all the problems and scenario and hence we gotta think differently for almost all the cases and try to find the best solution for each scenario individually.

As all people have a different name, and to call them, we use their respective names, similarly, to find a better relationship with any particular individual, we gotta use an unique solution to make it work in the best manner.

I can write numerous things about what to do to think positive but I won’t do it because if that worked, then I wouldn’t have been writing this post here. Things don’t work. People don’t think positive and hence there has to be something underneath this. Not only THEIR MENTAL LIMITATION but something more other than that. I want to figure that out so that we can try to neutralize that factor.

So, please tell me when you face difficulty to think positive. Under what circumstances do you think that you’re all drained of the positivity in your life and start to think negative? I know it’s difficult to express ourselves but we’re at that point in our life that we have to help ourselves or else it’s all downhill from there. Please help me, help you.

 

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

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?
