You know what I mean

So, a point to be noted ~

Why is a gathering often addressed as, "Ladies and Gentlemen"..?
Really. Why exactly the word 'gentle' for the men and no such adjective before the word, ladies?
Now to that, if one says, "Ladies and Men would sound too odd.. right?"
I'd know its a male saying it! Haha :P Or maybe, it would. But again, is that fair enough?

Quotealicious on twitter states the obvious, in a different manner. And, it really is true to its core, pretty often. And, one can relate to most of it, with their individual lives. So yeah.

Some thoughts/quotes by her shared on twitter,

- Somewhere between laughing for no reason, making fun of each other, and calling each other names, I sorta fell for you.
- I remember when I was a kid I went on the computer just to use paint.
- you are my hardest goodbye
- If it's meant to be, it’s meant to be. No matter how long it takes.
- I think it's fearless to fall for your best friend, even though he's in love with someone else
- Finding yourself subconsciously singing a song you hate.
- Remember it's one thing to say I love you. It's another thing to actually mean it.
- That one song on your iPod that you always skip but never delete
- She ignores all the other guys who want her, because she's too busy noticing him.
- I absolutely love listening to the pouring rain
- Your first love, is the hardest to get over. You feel like you'll never fall in love again. But when you do, its just as good, if not, better ~ Ke$ha.

Random. Happy. Not for any particular reason. But, just positive, maybe.
Shared those, because, just felt like. I'm sure a lot others who might read this, would be able to relate to it too. Yes, mostly girls would be able to though. Oh and twitter is good!
I like twitter :D

The movie, 'Its A Boy Girl Thing'..
Saw it today. Pretty decent. Missed the beginning though. But, it was nice actually. Yes, boys/men wouldn't like it, under normal circumstances. Or maybe exceptions would.
Am I being too feminist today? I think so. Maybe, I am. It's the mood :)

Two very, very important conclusions :
1. Google is God.
2. Music is Oxygen.

Oh and the poem, 'Anyway' by Mother Teresa...
It has these positive vibrations, somehow. I mean, atleast, every time, I read it, it just feels . . .
weirdly different?

And, I feel like quoting that here too. Yes, too much of quoting.

"People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered,
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives,
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies,
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you,
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight,
Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous,
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow,
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough,
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God,
It was never between you and them anyway."

On the 13th of April, I went to a chemist shop with my mom which was right opposite the Doc's clinic.
And, looking at it from a distance, both of us could see a small boy.
A boy who looked a little weak, had a stern look on his face, and was small to the extent that more than half of his body, was hidden by the table infront of him.
My mom's confused expressions did tell me that she wondered if the boy was gonna be giving the medicines to us. I had some sorta confidence in the boy and I told mom, woh ladka hai na.

When we reached the counter, the boy looked at us and didn't utter a word.
We asked, medicines aap denge na? The boy nodded, simply.
We gave him the prescriptions.  He took them with a lot of confidence and very quickly, he grabbed all the medicines. As he started to write the bill, manually, I asked him, naam kya hai aapka? He said, Tarun.
I said, kaun si class mein ho? He said, 8th. I said, padh ne ke saath saath yahan kaam bhi karte ho? He said, haan.

Mujhe mann mein ek ajeeb si khushi bhi hui aur pata nahi kyun, par bura bhi laga.
He started to calculate the total by adding up the prices in the calculator. By the time, he was just about done calculating, the senior guy (probably the owner of the hop) arrived. He asked him, ho gaya beta total?

The confidence on Tarun's face left me smiling until I walked to the car.

I just wrote a very normal incident up there that has probably taken place in most of our lives. But it just feels good to have a record of something like that, even though, I have most of it in my head anyway.

It isn't what people said, it's also what they thought instantly to what you said. What they finally did end up saying out loud, as a response to what you had to say, is another story all together.
A lot of times, we don't know, either because we probably never asked, or we never bothered to know, what could have been the thing that, that person was about to say initially, instead of what he/she actually did end up saying, in the end. And, in my opnion, that does matter.
Usse us insaan ke chain of thought ke baare mein bohot kuch samajh ne ko milta hai.

A lot of people who want/need a change, don't/won't.
And the ones who shouldn't because all of us, really are, unique in our own special ways, change faster than time passes.

People alive today, need to really, really start looking from the other person's point of view!
Atleast before they pass a conclusion about a story, in which, they're aware of only one side of it!

Momentous anger and saying things, which would be taken to heart by the other person, even before the speaker ends up realizing what they really said!!

Three other awesome songs by Akcent, apart from, That's My Name,
Stay With Me
My Passion
Love Stoned

And, Glass Pear :
No reason to love
Streets Of Love

Bohot sahi gaane hain! :D

Sakaraatmak soch : Positive thinking!
A compulsory lecture for five hours, under the CS orientation programme. Seriously!
*phew* I come home and there is no elctricity and the inverter got burnt! Aur, mujhe gussa nahi aaya! :O
Haha :D

A quote by Quotealicious on twitter :
"And just when I think I might finally be over him... He starts talking to me."

'Te Amo' : Weirdly nice song.
A song from a hindi movie, Dum Maro Dum. Not the Rihanna version :P Actually, Rihanna's version is pretty decent too.

No Reservations : I like the movie. A lot :)

Baghban - Ek aisi movie jise dekh ne ke baad, aakhon se aasoon aa hee jaate hain.

Lekin ek baat sach hai, jisse ham mein se kaafi waakif nahi hain, ki,
Zindagi ki jo kitaab hai, uska har panna alag hai, aur har panne ko likhne mein hamara bohot bada yogdaan hai.
There are a lot of people out there who believe in what pandits have to say about their future and they start to  perform their life's deeds as per what they're told. That is the absolute wrong thing to do!
Koi hamein yeh nahi batayega ki hamein apni zindagi kaise jeeni hai.

Umeed har insaan karta hai. Kuch apne aap se aur bohot zyada, doosron se. Mere ek acche dost, aur mera yeh maan na hai, ki umeed karna hee, apne aap mein ek guna hai.

Bohot baar ham apni taraf se effort karte hain, ek relationship ko kaayam rakhne ke liye.
Bohot baar hamein yeh bhi lagta hai, ki woh effort sirf ham kar rahe hain, and that's when it hurts.
When you expected someone to go out of their way to do something for you, and they remotely didn't, that's when it hurts.
Jab aap ne ek insaan ke liye apne parents se ladai ki, and coming to think of it, aap aisi kisi cheez ke liye, shayad apne aap ke liye bhi argue na karte, lekin aapne apne is dost ke liye ki, and the friend doesn't give a shit, that's when it hurts.
When you've been told by a stranger who believes, he/she has the ability to see someone's future and you're told that you wouldn't make it very high in life, that's when it hurts.
When you know your heart isn't with you, and you really did give it away to somebody, but you never got it back, and you lack the ability to give a damn if someone else has the same to tell you, because your heart isn't with you still, that's when it hurts.
We can never, ever repay our parents for all that they do for us, and so, at every point we get angry, we should really make the effort and must not lack the ability to look from the other person's point of view.
Its a different story when we're not convinced but coming to think of it, we do lot of things in life, even when we're not 'really' convinced.
Communication gap is another mistake committed by most of us.

All the above typed in the above paragraph, in two languages, hindi and english, has been stated in general. There isn't a hidden story behind the points. I was reminded of a few points after seeing the movie and I felt like typing it down, out here, so here I am.

I was appreciated lately, for the posts written by me here, and it felt good. Really good :)
Thank you.

P.S. - You really can't hum while holding your nose. Try it!

A corner of my mind : part 2

It'll come to you one day.
If you escape it, it'll chase you.
If you escape it again, it'll chase you still.
Until, its finally got you.
Is it?

Risk of trying a second cucumber piece knowing the first was absolutely bitter!
Now that's a risk. It is. But isn't that big. Really? Can you really say it isn't that big a risk, knowing you might just ruin your taste in the middle of having your favourite sabzi or dal..? But then again, it's tempting. Right? A cucumber piece (absolutely healthy) with salt and red chilli powder on it..! :D Hmm, it reminds me of how things can be so tempting from outside, but you don't know what's in until you've stepped inside, you know. Somehow, the looks have been proved to be deceptive more than often. But one can't be so negative from the very beginning thinking it isn't worth stepping in. Nahin?

*devil mood* :D

New lip balms are kinda exciting :D

BlackBerry advertisements getting innovative day by day! :)

And and and,
Anna Hazare ofcourse! :D

Kurtis :D

I still fit into size 'S' :D Sometimes!

Friends make a HUGE difference in our lives?
Yes, I have a habit of stating the obvious. :P

P.S. - "If you give off signals that you don't want to belong, people will make sure that you don't."

Uhh yeah

A friend told me the other day and I quote,
'At the edge of all light, when you know you are at the very edge, have faith that either you will be caught when you fall or you will be taught to fly. Have faith.'
That is a very positive thought. Ain't it? :)

A lot of times, most of us manage to tell the others to look around more positively, but when it comes to applying that to ourselves, it doesn't really work. Does it? Actually, it doesn't work at all. The same goes for the friend who tried to make me look around things a little more positively than I already do, and it goes for me too.

Another awesome song by Glass Pear - Say It Once. :)
And yes, I do wonder a lot of times as to why I hadn't heard certain songs before...
But then again, because I wasn't meant to?

Vailati pee gaye par desi abhi baaki hai :D
Char baj gaye lekin party abhi baaki hai..!
Peppy song. Nai? Hindi is a very expressive language! And, I am a punjabi by heart :D

Books. I mean, textbooks. Not novels!
Tv. But no good movie coming on tv. Friends. Changing?

Also, I was told that, "If friendship is your weakest point then you are the strongest person in the world."
I mean, ofcourse its a quote by Abraham Lincoln. But really??

Uh, are we all dying on 21st December, 2012?
