Autograph Please ?

Have you ever tried looking at your Life from a third person's perspective. Or let me rephrase, have you looked at your Life like you are watching a Movie?. Take a moment to first grasp the idea of watching YOUR Movie. Newly suggested thoughts take a while to digest.

Now that your visualise your life as a Movie, the million dollar question is, Who are YOU in the Movie ?

Hold on to that thought.

Now generally when you want to go see a Movie, you expect something out of it whether its comedy, romance, action or thriller your looking for. You want to ENJOY the experience and leave the Cinema with a feel good feeling ! But it takes two to clap and depends on how everyone brings it to the table.

In Life, you are the Director, Producer, Script Writer & Lead. What kind of a Movie would you like to watch of YOUR life ?

All you got to do is write your Life's Script, direct your Actions based on what you have written and Produce the Results you want to see . You are the Actor. You A…

Loving "YOU"

“I don't like myself, I'm crazy about myself”

How often do we say things like this to ourselves. As a matter of fact how often do we even talk to ourselves ? Have you ever tried it or do you laugh at the very thought of it ?

"Talk to myself? !!!, What am I Stupid ? !! "

Confession time - I Talk to myself. Am I stupid ? Noways. I love spending time with MYSELF. Generally, people are always surrounded by others through relationships or circumstances. Whether its Home or Office, you are rarely alone ; even if your a social outcast. So what am I trying to get at here is to ask yourself, how much time do you spend with the one you should love the most, YOURSELF ? Or are you looking for that Love and Approval from someone else ?

Every now and then I take a walk at the Race Course, to consciously spend time with "me".  And trust me, not only do you hear your thoughts more clearly but you also have these awesome breakthrough ideas . How can you even expect someone…

Choices

" When life throws lemons, make lemonade or just bring out the Tequila ".

In other words, we face situations and incidents as a part of our everyday Life. But more important or rather crucial than the situation, is our response or reaction to it. There is not much difference in spelling between the two words response and reaction, but there is a world of difference that it makes to ones life. Reaction is being in alignment with the event that you just experienced. If someone shouts at you, you shout back. If someone irritates you, you get irritated. Getting the flow ?

Well read on. We do this on a regular basis that it has become a part of us and we dont realise. If you feel you dont belong to my generalisation here, good for you. But this habit that we have sub-consciously created for ourselves, allows our circumstances to dictate and control the way we feel. So if we could change that , woudnt that be the best.

Someone wise once said and still says, " Happiness is a…

Lover's Handicap

Affairs, Relationships, Courtships, call them whatever you want, sooner or later we all experience the varied trysts of love. Rarely does it happen that our first lover stays our last lover. Love is an Event and Loving the Journey.

As Oxford calls it, " a strong feeling of affection", Love, hits everyone.  Boy meets Girl, Attraction, Phone Numbers, Dates, Relationship, Kiss, Anniversary,Arguments,Break up, Patch up, Break up. Depression. Next. (Sequence of events not defined)

Or something like that. Atleast the stereotype chain reaction looks like that for the majority. Its a graph of ups and downs with elements like Excitement, Happiness and hiccups of Boredom. At times you feel like you finally know what love is all about until you meet the next one. Then again what is Love?

Some one you want to be with when you are alone?
Some one you want to come home to ?
Some one who makes you happy ?
Some one who turns your wrong into right?

Well that seems like being more dependant T…

"FI-FA"bulous !!

The Past One Month has engulfed the whole world's attention towards the FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa. Its fascinating to see so much Congruence towards one Sport. Everytime the 2 Countries take Field for a match, the entire Nation is stirred with anticipation and anxiety of the outcome. This is actually the most Emotional time of the Year. With every Win and Loss, there comes Joy and Sorrow, because Nothing Else Matters.

For the First Time in 80 Years, South Africa is hosting the FIFA World Cup and is also known now to be one of the most Courteous and Commendable Hosts over the 8 decades the World Cup has been taking place. Its definitely got Millions of People Blowing Vuvuzuelas to the tunes of Waka Waka. But who would've thought that almost a month into the World Cup, the most experienced and highly ranked squads would be singing a different tune altogether. Its been Quality over Experience this World Cup with the UnderDogs Netherlands surpassing their way up the Tab…

Dreamer Personified

Hundreds of People from all across America gathered infront of Dr. Martin Luther King to hear his speeech. The speech that began with ," I Have a Dream.... "


When was the last time you believed in your created dream. When was the last time you decided to close your eyes and dream. Or are the only dreams we see,  the ones we experience when we sleep.

As kids, we Dreamt. Everything around us inspired us to dream, Big or Small, regardless. We wanted everything because we so naively believed Everything was ours and all we had to do was Ask.

As we grow older and so-called wiser, what happens to those Dreams we so Passionately Believed in. Does it just unconsciously seep out of our brain cells into thin vapour? or do we just stop Believing because Reality is more easier to digest?

Think Again.

There is a Dreamer in us all. It does not Cost anything to Dream, so why not Dream Big. Nowadays Robots are smarter than Humans. But what differentiates us and Robots, is the ability to DRE…

Complain-o-Meter

How  much do we complain in a day?

From the time we wake up. Supposedly, if we are late for work or a commitment, what is our first reaction ? Lemme guess , " Oh Damn !", "Oh God !", or the all timer " Oh Sh#t !".

Now let me ask you another Question. Immediately after you react, what feelings do you feel? I doubt "Happy" is one of them. It is usually, Anger, Frustration or just Plainly being upset. Whatever it is, Its not Postive.

Now I'll tell you something I heard, " What you Focus on EXPANDS ".

So, when we grumble or complain about something or someone, were actually asking for trouble. Why would you want more of what you dont want. Sounds like a Googly, but Believe you me, successful & happy people, dont complain, blame or justify either.

So if we want to be or atleast feel Happy & Successful, all we need to start with is Abstinence from the same. Are you up for this Challenge?

I DARE you to NOT Complain or Blame for …

Are you a Complainer?

What if I told you, that every time you Complained about something or someone, you were only Attracting more of it. Would you Complain still?
I am going to be Blunt and upfront and say that , Weak People Complain. Small or Big. A complain is a Complain. And what you focus on expands. Tho chod na yeh sab nnoses or sigmund ko puch yeh sparta kidar hai

Definition Love

Love.

"Nothing has Meaning, except for the Meaning you give it". Love is a word difficult to define. Then Again, each to their own. For me when I go into flashback, I remember that tingling feeling within me when I would meet that someone special. And the Young immature Romeo that I was, only blinded me further to believe that it was Love.
    As I was gowing up as a young kid, my only outlet to associating any feeling with the word Love, was the love of my parents. And I believe your parents are the root to your understanding of what love is all about. But then again, I am talking about a different kind of love. I know your probably wondering if there are even different kinds of Love. You see what I am talking about. Your Perception is Your Reality.
      Movies had played quite an influence on me as a kid. It was like my Love- Ed(ucation). From the way the couple would meet, their courtship, the way they kissed and etcetra and etcetra. And Hollywood was like the Harvard fo…

Family- Your Root to Unconditional Love & More

What comes to your mind, when I say the word Family? Love ? Upbringing? Life? or it could unfortunately be the opposite for some as well. Well whatever it is, its really important to acknowledge what lies behind this one magnificent word.
Family- Your reason to exist. Agree? No options there. Well I've realised over a period of time the importance of mine. Whether your the only child like me or whether you have siblings, it doesnt really make much difference in how one should respect his parents. Whatever happens in Life, your parents, being your core family will always be around. My father infact says, that you cannot trust anyone as much as you can trust your family. The phrase, " Blood is Thicker than Water" ring a bell ?.
Whatever I am today, I am hugely grateful to them for supporting me and giving me the upbringing I have. Everyone would have their own perspectives here. Respect that. From the time you learnt how to walk to being fed your first cerelac. The love b…

Now did you know that

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 g…

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 Mone…

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 Y…
