Two years of blogging!!


Long ago when I won first prize in essay competition consecutively for two years,,,somewhere in me a writer had already taken birth & then gradually I started taking interest in Hindi literature too, though that didn’t last long. Stories, fiction always fascinated me though these were related mainly to my text books & grandma’s stories only and also few story books that I read occasionally. It was only two years back when I started taking interest in novels & coincidently it was the time when I started blogging too.

Yeah, you guessed it right, my blog has completed two years, two years of silly, stupid, mind swirling, spiritual, emotional, funny, motivational blog posts(okay that’s what I think about my blog posts, don’t know about you guys).

I’m not gonna mention what made me to start blogging,,how was the first year because I’ve mentioned that a zillion times on my blog(I know I’m exaggerating but that’s me), so I’m gonna keep this blog post short & sweet.

Before ending I wanna say P.S.(initials for my blog) I really love you,,you have been like my best buddy in good & bad times,,and your being with me means the world to me.

Happy second birthday P.S.

And that has made all the difference


“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference”

Robert Frost

Really it takes loads of courage to take the path that is less travelled by. Obviously, who would like to take undue risks in life? Moreover people are keen to follow others footsteps,,,going with majority & fearing to try something new.

But

Those who thought other way around made a great difference. All the great people belong to this category. The less travelled path, no doubt, has many hardships,,but once we cross these pits & bumps, there’s a smooth road ahead.

Now what made me to write this was the behavior of my friends. We all are pass-outs now (though our result of last semester is still pending) and majority of us are not sure about what they want to do in life? Some of us who have made their mind to do something are following their chosen path & others are merely following them. I’m not against this, well, it’s better to decide as soon as possible rather than to waste time but the shocking thing was that few among my friends changed their path just because no one else was travelling by that path. I mean how ridiculous is that?

Just because that path is less travelled by doesn’t make you a fool to choose it.

Friends don’t act dumb,,,use your senses,,,life is not always a cakewalk and who knows the path you chose leads to a beautiful destination.

P.S. stay focused, stay positive & stay happy

Happy Independence Day!!!


Independence day,,,since a child I’ve been cramming essays on Independence day,, reading books on freedom struggle,,,watching movie on the same topic & like millions of other Indians I feel proud that I’m born in a country like India which in spite of having so many diversities, so many hardships, so many issues, is still progressing as one of the world’s fastest growing economies.

India is really great & I’m proud to be an Indian.

Okay India is great & it’ll continue to progress to be greater but if we just talk about ourselves, what we are doing as an Indian for our country?? What does this independence means to us?? (Forgive me if I’m sounding like one of those promos of some TV show)

As an 22year old,,just-out of-the-college-engineer, I won’t talk about changing the political system & all because I know that change won’t come in few days and it’s quite complicated process but at least I can think of changing the things that won’t take that much time and are much simpler.

I won’t talk about whole country,,I’ll just start from my own state, the first thing that I think is missing in this state(& of course in other parts of country too) is cleanliness. It is clearly written on walls “stick no bills” or “don’t deface” or “don’t spit” but it seems like everyone here is illiterate. Dustbins are empty & trash is lying on road. Drainage system is blocked & water is flowing on road blocking traffic. If only we follow simple rules, which I think are not that hard to follow, our country will be a lot cleaner.

On this Independence Day, I take pledge to follow these rules because I just love this country & I want it to be clean.

What is happiness????????


Happiness……….

So what is this happiness???

I’m sure there will be n number of definitions by n number of great minds but I’m sure for everyone among us, happiness has its own definition & most of us would have changed their definitions after a certain time, after experiencing certain things or after having learned important lessons of life.

Now why I’m discussing this happiness with you??

It was the birthday of one of my friend & I wanna wish,,,after thinking a bit,,I chose the words “May all your wishes come true” but then I thought can just fulfillment of wishes bring happiness to someone what if the person isn’t sure himself/herself about what he/she wants in life? I mean our dreams, our wishes do change, and they change with every passing moment. Maybe what we wish or dream about now won’t have any significance few years later.

Oh yeah,,,, wishes/dreams do come with an expiry date.

Then I thought,,,what can be the best way to wish someone??

If fulfillment of wishes can’t always guarantee happiness then what can guarantee happiness??

Then I thought about myself,,what makes me happy??

Years before if you would have asked me the same question,,my answer would have been “I’ll be happy,,,if I stand first in the class/essay competition/any other competition ,,,or if I’ll be selected house captain again or head girl or if I get that dress/shoes etc” or somethings. Years back,,this was the definition of happiness for me, perhaps that’s why the happiest day of my life then, was when I got 13th rank in the district in 8th standard results.

If you ask this question to me now,,then my answer will be, “I’ll be happy if I’ll get a job(because this is the thing that I need presently)” otherwise these days I’m always happy because I’ve loads of memories of my college life which are more than enough for me to make me happy,,I’ve world’s best friends as my friends,,,there are people who appreciate me for what I’m,,,my parents are proud of me(ofcourse,,they’ll feel more proud once I’m independent & start earning myself) and most importantly I’m living my life the way I want, and that’s why the happiest day of my life has been replaced by the last day of my college,,,the day when I was appreciated for the party I planned with my friends & the movie I made. And that was the day I learned that nothing can be more wonderful than having the friends like I have.

Years later if I’ve to answer the same question,,,my answer would be quite different I’m sure. Why I’m sure because I’ve the live example of my mother in front of me. I’m sure years back her definition of happiness would have been different but now all that makes her happy is-our happiness,,all she prays for is-our happiness,,nothing matters to her but our happiness.

So after thinking a lot, I end up wishing my friend “Loads of happiness” because unlike dreams or wishes happiness doesn’t come with an expiry date,,it has a rolling validity,,after every moment spent,,after every lesson learnt and after every dream realized,,,it changes its definition accordingly.

Stay happy :)
