My Kind of Soulmate

Everyone wants to believe in their one true love. They want to believe in love’s true kiss, the chill-you-to-your-bones first look when you fall in love, and the earth-shattering moment you’ve found the person you can’t live without. You want to imagine the day when nothing else matters but the hand you’re holding, the eyes that watch you fall asleep and the smile that wakes you in the morning.

Everyone wants to believe in finding their soulmate. The person that fits you so completely, you’re not sure how you survived so long without them. The person that finishes your thought even before you have, and pushes you to reach even higher than your dreams. Everyone wants to wait for the person that fills you with so much joy that you forget what sorrow is. The person that you always…

Men Vs Women. What exactly are these poles?


Lets take physicality apart, and talk about the mentality of the two opposite genders. We are always at par of understanding the opposite sex, we do not realize they are human beings too. What is so apparent in one, is a rarity in another and the cycle of life continues. Let me list out some things of the opposites that can help me through my mental exploration of the features of both the polar human kinds.

A woman {being one, I feel more confident of this list 🙂 }

  • They see the future quicker than the present – It is a known fact that a women knows something coming a little beforehand. Well they are not Gods, they just seem to figure it out quicker than the opposites.
  • They love to dream – Whatever said otherwise, Sleeping Beauty (in this case daydreaming) can never be forgotten.
  • They read emotions better- Men are slower at reading between the lines three-fourth of the time.
  • They care far much more than deserved – It is an inbred quality they say, but women can care very much for a lot of reasons. They know how to extend there hand, for helping anyone in need.

A man {do excuse the mistakes and correct me if necessary}

  • They are selfless- Come on ladies, we have to give them credits for being very selfless in most of their actions and a women can simply not compare to their simple self-respect.
  • They are realists – They do dream but their dreams are more realistic than impossible (sorry sleeping beauty 😦 its not your day)
  • They think about the present – Its rare to see a guy plotting his life very early on and if he does, he is by far the biggest exception to mankind.
  • They love to take risks- Risks motivates them in their day to day life and pushes them forward. Its the adrenaline that they thrive on, and it simply can’t be replaced.

Well, these are some simple facts that I could come up with. Let me know if you can add some more. There are exceptions to all these cases and it can all be contradicted against.

Trust..Fast or Slow?


“People tend to believe and believe they will, as long as the sun sets in the west”

Trust –  something that comes not with seconds but with centuries they say. But the first move, the first conversation and the first meet up, depends on believing that everything will happen for the best. From there slowly, with baby steps, the person starts trusting the other and entrusts the other with himself. It is all good and going but one mistake, one foot in the wrong direction, can pull all those years of effort into the drain. The person might give the other a second chance, but that does not mean they will trust the other like before. Now it is the other’s duty to follow up well and gain it all back. As long as the sun sets in the west, it will always be bright and beautiful in the east.

What do you see and what do you feel? Exact truth please..


Looking around you, you see children, adults, old men and women alike. Do you feel the same way as they do? The burst of happiness and energy the people around you give out,going about there daily activities. Do you see one thing and feel another? A kid running around happy. Does that make you angry for the noise the kid makes, or happy for the energy he exudes. Does feelings control our perceptions? Let us feel it before seeing it, shall we?

Let’s take two situations. You are feeling really happy and could bounce off your seat.One person walks suddenly right in front of your car. You get scared and sigh to see that nothing happened. Take the opposite case of you feeling downtrodden and sad. That person walks in front of your car and he will get cursed to hell itself.At that moment, your feelings controlled your reaction to a situation, and helped or worsened the situation likewise.

We do not give much thought to our feelings and we go on with our lives.We do not realize that at times, we make mistakes and blunders because we let our feelings rule us in different situations.The person who takes out his anger on others might feel better after, but the people who were under fire because of it are only left sad, creating problems of their own.

Stay happy and be grateful for all that you have is the one thing that can help you through your troubles, not only in brightening you up, but preventing you from making more. Gratitude for what is in hand, and happiness can overcome your feelings and offer a hand to others as well.

So see what you feel but make sure even in dire situations that feelings don’t get to the external ,since they are better kept inside you.



The upcoming craze of the world- Fifa World Cup 2014…


People from all over the world get a reason to celebrate and holler their countries name for a month long game of soccer- FIFA World Cup 2014. The world waits around for four years, and gets rewarded by the arrival of the football World Cup games. It takes the earth itself by storm. All included, fans and others alike, is swept away by the craze brought by the games. Bated breaths of anticipation, tears of loss, laughter in winning, and flags waved in unison, it could never get any better.

The whole crew of family and friends sit around the large screen or crowds are found in front of cafe’s, enjoying the game. A goal leads to screams of delight and cry of despair simultaneously. The street is buzzing with the noise, and the corns are popping in the kitchens. Taking sides, facing your countries loss and moving on to the next best team are all part of the deal. The patriotism of each person is taken to a new level, with the kind of loyalty each fans provide their country.

The fully filled stadiums, the singing of Waka Waka (this time I am guessing it will be la la la and Ole Ola) and the cheering leads the men on the field to their victory or loss. The skills of each footballer is scrutinized and judged and makes for hot topics online and offline. The best goal, best save, best ball bending are all some things that the judges test. It all gets over in one month, but it is worth the while. It not only inspires generations of sporting in our century, it brings people from all faces of life together for that short term. 

Looking forward to an amazing summer of football and popcorn!!! 🙂 (May the best team win – fingers crossed for Brazil)

What if? This doesn’t seem right, what if the other is?


Life has flood us with choices that are so wide and open, which makes it confusing and at times bewildering to choose from. So what do we do. Do we choose one and be satisfied with it, or do we fret about the other options for the rest of our life? What if is a question that haunts each and every human on this earth.

Be it deciding on your soul mate, picking your course or even walking away from a lifelong career, every decisions that we make as we grow into an adult, determines where we go from that point onwards. Some decide and live happy, some decide and regret forever, some do not ever decide and would never know what it would have been like, to walk down that particular path.

The people who are the happiest seems to be the one that are content with their decision and it might be even a no, but for them, a ‘no’ in itself was a decision they made.They took the courage and enforced their life to go the way they want it to and were content with whatever came next. They were not sad and depressed by the consequences it bought, but lived their decisions to its fullest.

Now the ones who regretted their decision, never understood why decisions are made. They are made to force you to choose instead of wander and targets your attention to something it should be focusing on. ‘You decided it, now you have to live with it’ is not saying negatively but emphasising the point that you are responsible for your own happiness. It is not created by others, but it is created by you. When you decide on something, stick to your choice.

The third group who never decide are the cowards, who never took the chance and run with it but tried holding onto it, hoping someday they will have the courage to run. Life is about now. Take some risks and live with them because life is all about new experiences and that is what rewards us at the end of the day.

Life is filled with a web of paths. You choose one, you go forward. You never choose, you are left behind. Make sure you live life to the fullest, by jumping off some cliffs (not literally) and making it all memorable and worthwhile.

“The most important thing is to enjoy your life-to be happy-its all that matters.”- Audrey Hepburn

We need more..and more…and more..


The cold dry wind swish up the alley,and the man curses verbally,

“What though the wind to see today,of all days to come and stray”,

At my home my family, to freeze and say anxiously,

“When though the wind, to leave us daddy” they whine,

“When the blue moon shines, and the black clouds wanes”,

He says for he sees, the world’s thread coming off its seams,

He knows it is time, but he needs more lime,

From the world, which has merely curled,

From all the greediness, and more of deviousness,

Of all the people in its turf.




The Sunflower or the Jasmine?


Faced with two options, both perfect, but different in their own way, what are you going to do?

The Sunflower- It stands out, its bold and its full of energy.

The Jasmine- It does not stand out with its view, but it stands out with its feature of smell. It is small, and almost gets lost in the wilderness.

So which is the better choice? Which should I choose? The meaning can refer to a person, a decision or even a thought. Should I stand in pride or should I stand in honour? Should I use my wits or my power? The lion might be the king of the forest, it does not mean all the other animals are powerless. Everyone in his/her own way have unique qualities shared by none. Some might become leaders and some might not. But all of them are leaders in their own way. Some stand out in the crowd and some others don’t, but what is a crowd without everyone in it. Each one of us constitutes this world, so saying that I am the best or I am the worst would be an irrelevant thing to say. He is better or she is better- well in some regards yes, but not in the whole aspect. The nerd is good at studies and the popular is good at fashion. Switch their roles and they don’t have anything to go by.

The society deeming some quality better over the other is its own mistake. Uniqueness in different phases of life is what everyone should be achieving, not following the herd of commonness. Try to find the uniqueness in you and others and you will end up appreciating a lot more things in life.

New or old…What is it going to be?


As we sift through life, we experience new and old feelings. Most of the old emotions come up when we encounter something or someone from the past. It can remind you of your past and mess up your current feelings too. The new might be a modified aspect of the old, but when it is the parallel opposite of your old, problems arise. You feel stuck in between and you have no common point or ground to go back to. Your mind and body is conflicted, you don’t know where to turn to. Should I go right or left? Should I go ‘in with the new and out with the old’ or should I…These questions tumble through the recesses of your brain leaving you mentally and at times, physically incapacitated.

Don’t worry- the first thing that you need to remember at this stage. Worrying only makes the it worse and you might end up making all the wrong decisions. The saying ‘in with the new and out with the old’ has never been more right. The new feeling and emotions are what makes you ‘you’ right now. So stick with it. Everyone changes through the years and your feelings change along with it. You might have had a different opinion back then, but it is gone now. You need to live your life at present, not at the past. There are times when you would like reconsidering a single thing. Then go with it. Think about it through and if you feel like you need to bring up your old perspective, no one is stopping you. But when at some point, you doubt the whole of your reality, that is when you need to stop buddy. What made you ‘you’ today is because of the present. If you wholly immerse into the past again, it might lead to places you would not have wanted to go. So think about now, then think about then. That is the only way you can deal with the crisis of the in-between.
