Of Hands & Lines & Beyond....!!

I still recollect that moment, when in the bus, amidst the slow moving Mumbai traffic which din't seem to trouble us a bit...

You immediately noticed my palm and the lines on it....

The way you complimented on my soft, baby-like skin...

How we wondered.... if these lines truly decided our destiny.....

How you playfully joked that I had a smaller "Life Line"

How I noticed that you had such a deep "Brain Line.."

How we discussed about what each line stands for.....

How we wished to decipher whats written beyond them...

Then how we turned to "That nothing is destined.... Its all about choice & our decision..."

And then how after a few days..

We decided that maybe we are not meant to hold each other's hands forever...!!!!

Anytime Moodwa ko, Upsettaao Nahin Moora… !!

Just heard this song from the album "Gangs of Wasseypur-2" which goes on as......

"Frustiyaao nahin Moora,
Narbhasaao nahin Moora,
Anytime moodwa ko,

Upsettaao nahin Moora…" and its so good.....

I mean right from the time I have heard it..... I have been humming it along.... Plus the Hinglish touch that the song has to all its words makes it very unique in the league of all Munni's, Sheela's & Chamak Chaloo's that Bollywood has been producing all this while in the name of music.....
A must must must listen whenever you have been frustrated over that bad question paper or the rush in the train or the rains that made u late or after that bad day at office when nothing went as you had planned it to be... Of course, its routine...Life has to go on this way...some highs...some lows....But...

Jo bhi wrongwa hai usey,
Set right-wa karo ji,
Naahin loojiye ji hope,
Thoda fightwa karo ji…Moora…

Kudos to team of Moora Song for experimenting & bringing out such a wonderful blend of music, & fun-filled language...!!!!

Would like to check it out????  Here it is..!!

Kabhi Aisa LAgta Hai...!!!

"Kabhi aisa lagta hai , dil mein ik raaz hai
Jise kehna chahoon , par main keh paaoo na
Aankhon hi aankhon mein keh jaati hai jo ye
Khamoshiyon ki ye kaisi zuba
Maine suna jo na usne kaha ..
Kya aisa hi hota hai pyar???
Mere khuda mujhe itna bata
Kya aisa hi hota hai pyar...??"
played on my MP3 in the morning & then the whole
day on my lips......

I knew things were changing.. I knew I was changing...
Every little thing aroung me made me happier, made me smile... :)
Every thing that I read, saw, heard or spoke was related to him & only him...

That blush you get on reading his name...
That smile which forms on your face on getting his SMS...
Those butterflies you get in your stomach when you plan a Date...

I never thought this happens in reality...
I never thought it would happen to me...
But then one day, when he told me those three magical words- I knew that this was it...!!!

Love is real...
Love redefines you....
Love is something beyond words....
Something which only you can experience & then feel the magic.....

Love is in the air... Are you Feeling it???? ;)

NO or KNOW..??

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..!!

Dil Toh Bachcha Hai Ji.....!!!

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, 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..!! :) :)

Pehchan Kaun..???

It is said that India is a country with "Unity In Diversity" and it is indeed so true.. The country is so vast and the people living here are so different from each other. Right from their looks to the way they live, eat, walk, talk & behave, everything is so different.. If you have visited at least four states in the country, you would have surely experienced the difference amongst people.

But with the metro culture rising at various cities, you are likely to come across different people belonging to different cities of India. The question that arise now is, "HOW TO IDENTIFY DIFFERENT CITIZENS OF INDIA???"

So presenting You with some quick tips that would help you to know the people around you..!!!

So lets have some fun with them.. The main purpose of this quiz is to rescue you when you come across some Mr/Miss. Know All..!!!

I just got this mail today and it was really interesting. I thought of forwarding it to my friends first but then, the next minute, it struck me..may be I should publish it on my blog and share this with everyone out there..

What's your Rashee???

Rashees.... Sun signs.. These facts amaze me a lot.....!! I am not superstitious and I think sun signs don't have anything to do with superstitions too.. But I have come across many people who think just think of all these things as same. That's a different issue.....

Talking about sun signs, the part about sun signs that I like the most and I always look out for is the Personality Traits. As per the the Zodiac all the people in the world can be divided into 12 distinct groups based on their birth dates. Each group of people have some special characteristics. Now it is not possible that there are only 12 types of people that exist in the world. But this classification gives the major characteristics of these people , their nature ,their behaviour and approach toward things.

People with same sun signs can also have different characteristics but there are similarities in general. Males and females of the same sun signs too have different personalities.

The future predictions like horoscopes etc made on the basis of this criterion are not always true but really close at times. I like to check them out once in a while and compare it with happens actually with me....

I like to know people and know how far they resemble to their personalities as per their sun signs, here I give a small description of the people of various sun signs that I have come across and the characteristics I found in them..!!

Urvashi's Book Of Personality traits.

Aries - March 21 - April 20
Have great power of influencing thoughts, really good orators.They are aggressive about their ambitions..

Taurus - April 21 - May 21
I am a Taurean and have come across many other Taureans too.... Smart.. Patient.. I think they believe in going to the core of things rather than just accepting what is visible to the eyes..

Gemini - May 22 - June 21
Geminis are stubborn by nature and I think they cannot forget or forgive easily.

Cancer - June 22 - July 22
Cancerians are I suppose the most sensitive set of people I have come across. Cancerian boys are no exception. They too are as sensitive as girls are. But are sweet and make really good friends if you can connect with them. But please don't hurt them....!!

Leo - July 23 -August 21
Fierce...Angry... Strong and well built just as their zodiac symbol. I have just known Leo men actually. Yet to meet a Leo Lady.

Virgo - August 22 - September 23
Really smart people. Have many friends of this sun sign. Intellectual and good judges. If you really do something worth appreciation, you get your share of praises but on the other hand you also have to face criticisms, in case you miss out on their expectations levels. They are the perfectionists in whatever they do and demand the same from others who follow them. A great and inspiring example is one of my favourite teacher at college who belongs to this sun sign and she has typical characteristics of this group.

Libra - September 24 - October 23
My Mom and brother both belong to this sun sign and so I think I know the Librans very well. Clarity of thoughts..Honest and frank... Always stand out in a group, party etc because of their charisma....(Don't know if I should generalise this, but this is true for my brother...)

Scorpio - October 24 - November 22
A bit lazy but are good at sports rather than academics.

Sagittarius - November 23 - December 22
Hmm..The Saggis- Males and females have one common characteristic- Flirtatious nature ;)
apart from that they are spend thrifts and love partying.

Capricorn - December 23 - January 20
My Dad......They are cool people. Don't get angry easily. Helpful and Jolly.

Aquarius - January 21 - February 19
As their zodiac name suggests these people are like water.. Mix along well with anything and everything and hence can make you always comfortable in their company. I think they don't know how to complain.... because they they can adjust in any situation with any type of people.... no scope for complaining.My best friend is an Aquarian and I love this attitude of hers.

Pisces - February 20- March 20
Pisces..Hmm don't know many people very closely who belong to this group. Can just say that they are most of the times dreaming and are very creative.....!!!

PS:- This post was just a small attempt to write down the various characteristics of people whom I have come across and found interesting. There can be notable differences too. Do let me know, whether my description is appropriate or not for your sun sign..... :)

Are You Yourself ??

This question is something which I think all of us should ask ourselves every once in a while. In the present times,we have been exposed a lot to fake and imitation.We notice people in our surrounding and behave in accordance with their expectations from us or we try to copy their behaviour. In the real sense, we have stopped living for ourselves.

Right from the way we talk, we dress, the places we go to and even the food that we eat is all influenced by the act of imitation. This behaviour is generally seen among the college students who try to adopt new styles only to keep in trend. They seldom forget about their own selves, their style and attitude in midst of all this. With the fear of being poked or made fun of or rejected by their friends, they adopt new styles without realising the impact it may have on them in the future. Now with this simple example i think everyone would identify how much we fake in our daily lives.
A student might like to attend a particular lecture in college but just because everyone in his class says that the professor is boring,this student would also join them if he is not very strong about his principles and fears rejection. He may also start saying that the lecture is boring whereas deep in his heart he may want to attend it.

Now people have this attitude of criticising rather than praising or appreciating someone. Human heart always craves for praises and in this quench we begin to try to please people. We act and behave as they want us to behave. We live our life for ourselves. We should do things which please us and make us happy. Everyone has an aim in their life. I believe, we must work independently to achieve this and the result should satisfy us. We must not bother about what others think about it. Everyone is this world is "Unique" and we should have firm belief in ourselves and our decisions.Then the world around would have less of imitation and more of reality.I just came across a quote which says:

It's better to be a fake somebody than a real nobody.
-Matt Damon

But I believe that,
Why be a Nobody in your life..?? Be Yourself..

Its better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.
