Some Days back, as I was checking my facebook updates, I found that my Chachu had also got a FB account. I went to his profile &................
The cute display pic just left me staring at the monitor. He had actually scanned a pic of his childhood & uploaded it. Now it was a pic of the four brothers & the best part....my Dad was also in the pic. I just woke up my Dad & asked him to to see the pic. The fact that the pic taken around 40 years ago, was still preserved with someone in spite of the frequent shifting was amazing. Dad loved it. Sleep aside, he zoomed the B&W pic & told us the story about the pic. It was taken by a neighbour who had got a camera in those days or something. That Smile...On seeing that pic.. Was Priceless...
Fast Forward 30 years......
If you ask me about my childhood pics,I have a few pics taken on some special occasions like when I was a month old, year old, birthdays and all... At this time, capturing memories on specific days using the roll camera which was later on developed and preserved in the form of albums was very common... Its so simple and yet so nostalgic.. Remember looking at those school pics taken with the class?? Those specific birthday party pics...Pics clicked during outings....Requesting someone to click a family picture that includes everyone.. Loads and loads of memories...!! I still ose a track of time when I browse through the few old photo albums we have at home...
Fast Forward 20 years more.....
Welcome to the world of digital Photography... Clicking photos with DigiCam and Mobile Phone Cam is as easy as 1,2,3.. Click..Save/Delete.. Click Again....!! The introduction of these modern mediums of clicking pics and capturing memories has made our task so simple that now we can click pic each and every day and we can also have a photo journal based on all pics clicked in the entire year.. There is really no need of any special occasion or function to click pics.. Its just common to click pics anywhere and everywhere.. At the Station, In the train, On a holiday, In the college, In office.. At the restaurant..At the movies.. Ar the monuments.. In short at every single place that one can think of.. And not to forget the selfies... U don't even need anyone else to click your pic.. Just turn your phone, Point the lens... Pout..And Click.. There you Go..!! :)
Seriously, we have come a long way considering the way memories were and are being captured.. From Black and White photos to Instagram and HashTags... Just trying to guess.. What next..??!!!
Just came across this interesting poster which really redefines the Gen-Y concept of Love-
Surely if can just send 5 SMS per day in this age of being used to some 100 free SMS per day and all those 5 SMS are saved for only that person, you have al lreasons to believe that you are one of the most sought after persons in their life..
But according to me, if any person would define LOVE seriously just this way, I think there is a lot lot more to Love that he /she needs to know about.... The number of hours you talk or the number of SMS you share is in NO way a parameter to judge the feelings what you have for the person because LOVE has existed long before the SMS was even invented...!!! Ain't it????

I feel that all is over,
I feel that all is gone...
But then it is just the beginning....
I feel that I am near,
I even feel that I have got it..
But then I find it's gone...
I feel that I should leave it all..
Just walk away from all harsh realities..
But then I do come back in this world of dreams...
How are you doing..?? Hope that the month of Valentine had been pleasant & full of love for you. Talking about my above lines of creation, I have written them with some purpose & meaning.
But before I tell that I would like to know how do you all interpret it..?? What am I talking about according to you..??I would be waiting for your creative ideas & views. It would even help me to broaden my thinking horizons.
So please do share your views & I'll be back soon next time with what I meant about those few lines there...
A very strange thing happened today.
I was on my Desk when a customer approached me asking for the balance in his Account. I enquired his number & other details and started telling him the balance. Now whenever I have to tell something like in numbers, I speak in English default. So I began"Thirty three thous..." & he interrupted."Arey madam, English kuthe yete..Zara Marathit sanga naa"(meaning I don't understand English. Tell me in Marathi.)
I repeated the balance for him in Marathi to which he asked "Clear aahe naa Balance..??"(Is it all clear??).
I replied in positive & then he said THANK YOU & was about to leave when I called him back & said "Thank You pan English aahe..."(You said thank you, thats is in English only.)
He smiled at himself & said "English yete mala pan tumchya saarkhi nahi. Mi teacher ahe Marathi shikavto ani bolto.? Kahi chuk jali tya peksha me bolatch nahi."(I Know English but not like you people. I am Teacher.I teach Marathi & speak the same. Rather than making mistakes while talking in English, I would better not speak that.)
Now that was so humble of him to accept the simple facts as they are. Not pretending anything or trying to disguise the truth. How many times do we ourselves even take that small step to acknowledge our mistakes & the things we know or don't know.??? Most of us just try to go ahead without taking time for this analysis.
Even I realised that there must be some facts about me in the same way. So why not take sometime out & get to know the person you live the most of the time with- YOURSELF & accept those facts not just to yourself but even to others.
Have a nice time ahead..!! :) Tc..!!
Last year at around the same time, I was humming a song "Dil toh bachcha hai ji..." and I was so much in love with the song that I played it in loop endlessly for times together. Then within a year, there comes up a movie with the same title and the strange thing is that it does not have a title song...!!
Now you must be wondering what is this post about..!! The song or the movie..??? Well, it is about none.. I just thought of the song & movie as I sat down to write... This is actually about our Dil & how it acts like a cute bachcha..!!
There are actually small things which touch our heart & make it happy. This Dil does not want material happiness. Just a a simple good morning message with a smiley, lovely breakfast of simple coffee with cream, just getting right on time for the train, finding a seat near the window, having no pending works (or no work at all..!! :P) , just getting a call/message from a person you were just thinking of, finding the same thing for dinner that you so damned wish to eat, turning on the radio & humming along the songs being played without paying attention to the words, just go la..la..la..., crack some jokes in code words which only you & your cousins/friends understand & laugh out loud. Just tell me is there anything that can make you so happy as these small incidences.?????
Now isn't it true for all of us..?? No matter how much ever we grow up or whatever we do, somewhere deep within us, there is a small child that lives silently & it surfaces up at times. These times may be joyous ones or sad ones or simply sometime in our routine when we yearn to be out of our lives where we are tired of playing different roles behind masks. So I believe, there should be an element of ourselves in whatever we do. We must not get lost in this world playing different roles & pleasing everyone by doing things that are against our heart.. Let your feelings in the heart mushroom up & let the whole world see the real YOU which will surely make your Dil smile with happiness..!! :) :)
A very strange, not strange actually...well you decide for yourself..what did u feel after reading this....!!
What I am going to write about is true... I wrote this in drafts and dint publish it also for two days thinking if I should or should not.....but I think I must....!!
What happened was.......
I was just walking back home with my friend when on the way I saw a vendor with some beautiful small purses that were knit using threads of different colours.They were really beautiful..I just happened to keep staring at them even while walking along and exclaimed to my friend "Wow..they are so beautiful...!!!"
Before I could even ask him to accompany me to that corner to have a close look at them, he said. "Why are you all girls like this..?? You like succhhh things..???"
Hearing this, something about our conversation around an hour ago struck me - where I was talking to my friend about some Eye-Liner..!! Now I know talking about cosmetics and all sounds girly, but definitely it as not something too boringg... Even then he had interrupted us saying "What have you started talking about in the middle of the road..???"
Now this is not to bring about the differences of opinion that we have (those are going to stay forever) but about the thing that happened later on..
When he did not like the purses, I immediately fired to him- "See, you are going to like all these things one day for sure... when someone special comes in your life..!! I am sure when she will say you any such thing , you will find this the cutest and the sweetest thing in the whole world.." I really dont know how but at that point of time I was determined to convince him about the likings of girls in general and also wanted him to agree to this attitude of girls...
He declined this point and went ahead.
I was still determined and reasoned out further, "I am sure this day will come in your life once...If you want, mark my words and you will definitely remember me for this...!!"
Now he took this very very seriously and said "I am sure.. Nothing of this sort will happen.."
"Take it in writing... You will change...!!"
"Ohkk then..Lets do one thing.. Whats the time..???"
"Ohkk..i'll write a message now and I'll send you.. Save it and then lets see....."
As soon as he said this.. We reached a point on our way from where we had to go on different roads... So we bid good bye to each other n two minutes later, my cell beeped....
N the SMS read....
"26th Feb, 2010
Uru ne aaj bola ki muzko bhi shopping and sab girly stuff achcha lagega jab mere lyf me koi aayegi...dekhte hai..!!"
(Uru said that I would start liking shopping and all such girly things, once there is someone special in my my life.. lets see how far this is true...!!).
I saved that message and he did the same too.. I wanted to remember this day and so I have even written about it..The point here, that he may change or no..I don't know. I think he would change his attitude with time.. even if he does not, this post will remind me of this very special and different conversation that I once had with this special friend... n yeah.. it has been quite some time he has been asking me to write about him on my blog... So this is the opportunity I take... Don't worry, I'll write other things about you too, soon ....!!
P.S. :- What do you think about this attitude of guys when they find some things so girlish and not even worth discussion.......?? I don't wanna sound as a feminist...just want to know your views... !!
They can change or no.. lets see.... :) :)
And yeah..HAPPY N COLOURFUL HOLI to you..!!
