Untitled

When you can't believe people's actions sometimes
Not the words
Those things are not to be paid much attention to in reality anyway
But wow
Contradiction is intriguing
No kidding!

But let's agree once again to the universal fact that we're all aware of;
When we care the most, we get hurt the most.
It consumes me.

When your memory gets refreshed in terms of what it's like to travel in a PACKED local in the peak hours of the morning!
Yup, by local, I do mean the local train!
And even in that situation when you can pretty much not move at all and are stuck..
You will find people with a smile on their face

Sometimes, you do things.. Things you know are not going to favour you in any way at all..
But you do them anyway
It won't get you any satisfaction either, and you know it
On the contrary, it might hurt you, in ways you're not sure of, but because you know the cost that the other person might be paying in terms of loss.. and isn't realizing any of it right now, purely because of not thinking of the big picture.. You go ahead and you do something, putting your foot down and because you know you can work your way with words to a reasonably good extent, you knew you'd succeed.. and so, you did
You don't think about 'your' fayeda/nuksaan in these situations
You're being selfless and spending your time and thoughts over conveying something that is never going to benefit you, ever

When the song, 'Last Day of Your Life' plays on your phone on shuffle mode :)

I guess I could never get enough of Bombay
I could have how much ever possible but it still wouldn't be enough.. ever
Yup, same thing said in two ways
Deal with it.

When you go back to College and see that the way your favourite sandwich used to be made has become all fancy now!
And of course it brings back memories
Not just of the obvious times of catching a movie right after the last lecture got over at 10:30 in the morning!
But also of the solitary moments you did have in the cafeteria on a day when it may have been raining like 'cats and men' and not everyone landed up for lectures like you did (at least till the second year of College)..! Haha.

Mumbai won't be Mumbai without its people
The originality of thought
The not-bothering-you, but happy-to-help attitude
I haven't seen it in any other city amongst the ones I've travelled to, in our country
It's amazing how it works and how it doesn't
How the pace of life is set and it's a learning even as a mere observer at all times
Too much to gather
#MumbaiDiaries

And here's an awesome post ~
The truth about Mumbai! :)

"Sometimes the simplest things are the most craftily constructed and the most complicated to pull off."
"Words scream to be heard. Silence waits to be understood."
"The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do."
"We ache to make the world of feelings a language we can converse in."
"Love is a question of how you look at it."

"If it weren't for the fact that the TV set and the refrigerator are so far apart, some of us wouldn't get any exercise at all."
"When an email comes to you saying, 'Click here to check your IQ', that you guys is your IQ test."
"Pardon my language but a man who shits and pees in a Rs. 32 lakh loo will never understand what a tanking rupee means for a common man."

"It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity."

Kafila:
White women in the Indian imagination ~ Alexandra Delaney

"The debate is still raging as to what is more difficult - to understand women or to book a ticket through IRCTC."
"I have been through a lot." - All cars

Bits, pieces and more

Opinions
are never right or wrong (as I may have even mentioned here earlier)
But what doesn't fail to amuse me is the level of variation in them on the same subject!
The difference in the intensities of the opinions leading to depths headed in two different directions,
on one subject!
Irrespective of looking from the other person's perspective, there is a big chance you're still not close to his/her chain of thought
It's not about not being able to really put yourself in his/her shoes any more, you already did that bit (if at all you did), it's about not being able to think beyond it
Maybe there is a possibility, that the other person is simply unable to express the unsaid words in any other form as well
And of course, silence is misinterpreted. More than the expected number of the times.
But then again, that's the beauty of human evaluation I guess

At the end of it all, it does come down to how YOU look at it.

The worst part is when we forget things
A crying baby on a flight
Everyone would turn back and stare at the parent and pass all the possible comments capable of crossing one's mind, as to why the parent can't keep the child, freaking quiet!
But I doubt the probability being high, of people thinking beyond
Beyond the perspectives of the parent
Beyond the ideology of taking care of a child
Beyond the faults of nobody

The difference between the reel and the real world even in terms of the one we're living in!
Not just the one in Bollywood
The picture is always something else than the one being shown to us

Seems like so!

Priority is obviously given to the customer sitting at home who may have placed the order at the exact same time as the customer standing right there at the outlet
Of course, commercial point of view
Guarantee of promised delivery time
But, what about your goodwill that went into the dustbin in the head of the customer standing right infront of you?
Yeah, yeah, there's monopoly in cheeseburst and more
But, big picture?
#TooManyThoughts
[When I'm unable to snap out of observing the working style around in general!]

A brand is not a brand if more than three auto guys don't know the location of its only building in the area.
Is it?

There is definitely no one like Mike Horn.
Words may not suffice my description of him
But maybe a post someday, only about him
The man has done things no one has, with unfailing faith and determination
Truly inspiring in the real sense of it
Someone who's passion for life is a definition of his own
        But a question that I never got to ask him...
How can he possibly keep at it ALL the time being humane?
Everyone has ups and downs in life.. The extreme high and low moments when you give up at a point without another thought
        My question isn't how he hasn't/didn't give up
My question is, how has it really been possible to keep at it? What were the things he managed to remind himself of, that kept him going incessantly?
#Mystery #RealPeople #MeaningOfLife

Government and its bans and preposterous laws.

When you think it can't get any worse, it can!

"Economic reforms have slacked. Educational reforms yet to begin. Sexual reforms are a distant dream when lingerie on mannequins is banned."

The incomprehensible chaos in Turkey!
What is happening in Istanbul?
