Perception is Projection

Friendship Private Limited

Can you imagine a Life with no Social Being? Its almost impossible. You are practically socialising since the day you were born when your parents did the whole baby talk with you. From that day onwards we come across PEOPLE like ourselves, yet different. I believe everyone you meet leaves some kind of impression on you and vice-versa. And the summary of these impressions forms an Experience with which we grow up. Its a serious thought. A friend very close to me once said, that we are an average of the six people we spend the most time with. If I were you, at this moment, I would be thinking of who those 6 people were. Are you with me?
      Influence. Such a strong word. If you look back into your past and retrospect, you will find certain experiences that taught you or changed you, for the better or worse ofcourse. I remember my Parents being worried when I was in School, wanting to know who my friends were. Why? Because my character reflected my company to a great extent. And as I grew mature and understanding towards my surroundings I realised the Importance of having the Right People around me. No surprises that a point came where my Parents were more appreciative of my friends (ofcourse everyone has their share of flaws as well).
         Coming to the point, that, you should choose your friends wisely. Especially the six people you spend the most time with. Would you want to be like someone who has bad habits, no ambition and disrespects life's offerings OR Would you want to be Positive, Passionate and Proud of the person you are? Think about it. I look at all the successful people today that I read about and I find one such characteristic common, and that is Knowing who your real Friends are? Do they uplift you or do they provoke you? Are they selfish or self-less? Are they friends? or mere Acquaintances?.
          Small Things Make Big Differences. Everything beings with a Thought. Hope I could help lay down a platform to think from.

P.S.- Friendship is not being selfish. Its recognising who has his hand around you, and who doesnt.

God Bless.

Love All,...................Marry One ! (Haha)

To Friendship !


Cricket + Bollywood = IPL

Cricket and Bollywood. What is India without Cricket and Bollywood? I am sure India can RUN only on the Tax pay outs from these Biggies. Some Actors on Screen and some on Field.. And yet were not just done because guess who follows? Yes, you got that right. Our fellow Politicians.  WoW !! Quite an organised mess !!
         What a Performance , If no one watched though? IPL 3 - Grand Finale Housing 55,000 People in the Stadium and Millions outside. Some Supply and Demand Curve here. With Thousands of Crores in the Rolling; High Stakes, Multi Millionairres and Aspiring Gamblers.  Its like a huge Box Office Movie. Actors being the Cricketers (Male) , Celebs  (Female), Directors being Team Owners and Producers, or should i say PRODUCER. Nonetheless, our very Controversial, Lalit Modi.  I wont be surprised if Ekta Kapoor is already stirring up an IPL conceptualised TV Soap .
                Well,  India's Biggest Entertaining Product has wrapped up tonight. The Winners Take Their Monetary and Emotional Pride, Losers take their Compromising Attitude and the Population; well the people of india, the crazy " I LOVE YOU SACHIN" fans, wait till World Cup T20.
          In short, what does all this have to do with you? Entertainment will remain Entertainment. Create an IPL out of your Life is the WAY TO GO ! Be a PERFORMER and Let others watch you RISE. Living a Fulfilling Dream Realising Life is more Entertaining than Watching Someone else do it.

As Henry Ford says, "If you Think you can or can't, either way your Right"

To Life !!

Are you Dancing?

And I'm back !! Given my Blog a real long dry phase. Its pay-back Time.
        Everyone speaks about Finding Your Passion. Well one such discovered Passion in me is Dancing. Also known as "Dreaming on Your Feet". The Academy I dance with , very familiarly known as Shiamaks Dance Institute of Performing Arts, literally Believes in "Have Feet, Will Dance". Anyone and Everyone can dance! I believe it too. Dont you? I mean think about it? Right now you might think sober and straight ( Thats when your guards are up).... But You know that when you've had a little too much to drink, your body has a mind of its own. So I wont be surprised if your unaware of the Dancer in You.
           In todays times, People generally are amidst stress and tension about the various situations in Life. But every once in a while, You might wanna let loose, Let your Hair down and let your body do the talking. And what a feeling it is. Your a different person RIGHT there, the FREE YOU.!! I mean you can take this up like Bathroom Singing. Yes ! Don't give me that look that you dont sing in the Bathroom. I've been watching.
  So likewise, you can close your door, put on some loud likeable music and just dance. Dont think about how others would like for you to dance. For that matter don't even let the mirror be judgemental. Its you , only you.
     I usually suggest music that has meaning and lyrics that are uplifting and lively. You know what I'm talking about. The strum of that Guitar or the tone of the Piano mixed with THAT voice ; just creates a connection doesnt it? I believe there is a Dancer in all of us. All we gotta do is recognise it and let it out every once in a while.
           Life is Short or Long, who cares. What matters is NOW ! What are you Doing NOW ?. And remember, You Create the World YOU Live in ! So Create your Wonderland, Your Heaven, Your Palace,Your Stage ; You get the point .

Until next time,
As said by Paula Abdul- "Dance like there's no tomorrow"

Peace !!
