Happy Valentines Day!!

I saw you first time in library…not so romantic place to realize that I had a crush!!

I saw the confidence in your eyes…you being lost in books…debates…your flair for your subject…your passion in it..

I was lost! You won my heart and I tried my best to see u often and hence was regular at library! that didn’t won me my love, but surely increased my credits and rank!! Though I never spoke a single word with you nor expressed it…I feel you knew it already. It made my life beautiful for few days…and it kept happening at different stages of life !! I laugh at it when I look back at life! That’s love..it just happens and doesn’t ask your permission. You do crazy things, feel lost, drowned in it…it has its own magic. Even if you may or may not achieve it for life, you must experience love at least once in life!

With our age, our definitions of love change. If doubt it, ask ‘what is love’ to different age groups and you will get amazing replies. With age, we mature and our concept of love gets broadened…we move from physical attraction to emotional togetherness and care. I found LOVE amazing at all stages of my life!!

I today wish you all a HAPPY VALENTINES DAY…with whatever you feel LOVE is and whoever you find it in…make the best out of it…give the best to your love…cherish moments…live the togetherness!! God bless u!!


माहित नाही कसा
पण जणू पुन्हा तूच आलास
तुझाच आवाज, तुझाच भास..
दुरूनही ओळखीचे.. माझ्यासाठी घेतलेले श्वास
तीच ओढ, तीच माया..
तीच स्वप्नं..तेच ध्यास.
तेच आभाऴ, तोच चंन्द्र
तीच हुरहुर अन् तुझाच गंध.
पुन्हा तेच अंतर, त्याच भींती
पुसट होतील का पुन्हा नाती?
पुन्हा धुक्यातून… पुन्हा असाच
पुन्हा तुझीच आठवण…तुझेच भास.

Take ME As I am…

Take ME as I am,

Take my life

I would give it all,

I would sacrifice…

I was listening to the popular track ‘Everything I do..Do it for you’ by Brian Adams shared by a close friend; and my mind is still stuck in above stanza. I felt Brian Adams is singing my mind..

Take Me as I am! Take me with all the goodness, and also my imperfections! I never was perfect, I knew it. I strived for perfection in my behaviour, my studies, my work, my relations and my social life. But, its life and to err is human. I made mistakes. I cried. I laughed at them. I fell down. I got up and walked again. Every time I decided that I don’t wish to commit the same mistake again and with that perfect mindset committed a new mistake!! Hahaha…I really laugh out loud at that when I look back at my life.

I always feel that why we strive for perfection so much? Is it really necessary to make everything on time, to the perfection? I always felt stressed up though I myself am very punctual and a perfectionist and always ended up getting stressed up. May be because all those efforts were made with an intent to become like someone, do it like someone, sing like someone, write like someone, dress like someone…..oh my god…I was making such a big  mistake! I wasn’t really myself and was trying to be like someone and that was really stressing me to limits.

Then came a day when I realized the key to handle it…I accepted myself as I AM!! I accepted that I am imperfect and need not stress myself to know every secrete of the earth! I need not know all that goes around me! I cannot make every one around me happy, some are bound to remain unhappy in spite of my hard efforts! It really worked to a great extent. I accepted it and woke up everyday with a smile and faced the day. It gave me confidence to even smile in worst situations and I feel I could handle it better than before; because, it was the real ME everywhere, who understood herself better and could do better everyday than yesterday without getting stressed up!!

It’s just that if we are human beings and may commit mistakes. We learn and walk towards perfections with practice. But, if we are accepted by ourselves and people around us ‘as we are’, life really becomes easy. Similarly, I too accept my family, my friends, my colleagues, and even strangers as they are….coz that’s the way they are!! I try to put myself in their shoes and think…and I understand them better. I can then give my best in the relationship…may it be as a daughter, wife, friend, or even mother!!

Its good to have idols and be like them. But, its important to accept our selves as we are, too!

ACCEPTANCE means a lot to me and it works as a motivator!


Swa Sanyam…literally translated as self control!!

I felt like speaking out my mind about it today. I agree time has changed, I am becoming old, lifestyles changed, its a global village with a cultural mix..still I always had a question, which culture tells us to give up values!? again values are quite relative as it may differ for different individuals, countries and cultures.

I know its very complicated to write. May be I am unable to express it aptly..but, few incidences made me give it a thought. I came across few very young girls and boys in my city, Pune (which proudly is a city of technology and culture, both!) who seemed have given up all family values normally Indian culture expects to possess, all shame, all fears and lost self control..ohh I wish they don’t behave that way in public places at least!

What we are taught from child hood is postponement of gratification..having patience to achieve things at right time. I call it Swa-sanyam! I seriously feel the urge to inculcate it in my child as well all children in my family. Many of you may not agree but, swa- sanyam is required in certain things to maintain a healthy society and prevent vulgarity at public places.

The First Word…

Thank God!

That’s the first thing came to my mind when hit the key board…I Thank God for everything HE blessed me with…everything that HE put me through…everything that HE showed me…just it was the best thing HE did to make me what I am today!! HE gives me strength to be happy everyday and help to whoever needs it.

Thank you all for sparing few seconds to stop by and read my blog…I thank God as HE inspires me to do what my heart asks me to go for!!

The last weekend of the month starts with fun and may all my friends have fun and joy over the weekend!!

Happy Weekend !!
