Friends or just more than friends!!!

What is love? It is a beautiful experience…a memorable event …a long lasting journey…lust to desire…melodious…and I can go on and on…. Adi (Aditya) is the name which changed my whole life , He is a part of every happiness in my life since I know him...

I was only 20,  when I first met Adi (Aditya) it was like the 13th of July! When I looked into his eyes I saw fireworks and when he looked back at me and smiled I knew it was love at first sight for both of us. We were doing our T.Y B.A and lived in the same neighborhood. I’ve loved him for what seems like forever. He asked me out in November and I said yes but there was one problem then, I didn’t love him with all my life but he liked me a lot. We lasted only 3 days because I being the stupid person that I dumped him. Cos’ I was scared, I knew my family won’t accept him but however in the weeks to follow we became really good friends. He would come over and chill at my house with me. We would sit outside at night and we would talk on the phone for hours and hours.

As the days passed by I began to like him more and more till finally I loved him so much I was going crazy (insane). He was the only person I talked about and my friends saw exactly where I was going. They knew I would eventually get the courage to ask Adi out, but they didn’t know when I would. They tried everything to stop me because they knew Adi very well as a person. Adi and I are completely two different people. Only thing we have in common is the close friendship that neither of us wanted to ruin. So we continued to be really good friends and by the end of the year everyone then knew what I was about to do. The whole bus ride home and the walk to our houses my friends tried so hard to convince that Adi wasn’t the one for me, except for one friend Pu (Puja), she thought Adi and I were meant for each other because of how well we got along and because of our close friendship , but everyone else had a different opinion. They told me I shouldn’t ask him out because he wasn’t my type. So I said well then if he’s not my type than who is? 
My Friends were speechless!

So that Friday night of May 31, 2010 I asked the love of my life out and he said yes. When he said the sky turned a different color blue and as the sunset I saw all the colors like I’ve never seen before. Now that we were a couple most of my friends thought we were going to last forever but that forever came to an end 2 weeks later. I don’t know why... it happens, I had never felt so sad and so crushed in my life.

I cried for days and days wishing every night that he would come back but he never did. I saw him the other day at the Bus stop he smiled at me and said Hi'. He pulled me off to the side and said “can’t we still be friends?  I was so close to him, I could feel his breath, that closeness was turning me on...but he still continued...

"Remember the friendship we had before all this and how close we were.... 
Do you remember the nights we sat outside and looked at the stars or when we would talk on the phone till 4 in the morning... 
Do you remember any of that? Because I do and honestly he said I miss those nights with you Archie..."

I didn't know what to say because I felt the same way. But I asked Adi... if all of what you just said  is true then why did you leave me? He was quite he just pulled me more closer ...looked into my eyes and kissed me...I was lost in his arms, I wanted the time to stop forever...he whispered he loved me...and hugged me ... I reached home a happy girl,  but I was still not clear whether we were friends or just more than friends!

That night we sat outside and watched the stars. I don’t know why but he held my hand and told me that he’ll always love me and maybe one day we’ll be back together but not now because we’re young yet and…   

I learned that love maybe too strong a word for us because it has a lot of meaning to it and some of us just don’t know how to use it and some of us do! I’ll always have a picture of Adi and I in my heart and thats where it’ll forever stay!

Be Mine, forever!

Your words, your eyes, your pranks,
Your touch, your smile and your love
Is all that means the most...

I’m blissfully happy in my dreams of you.
It’s the sweet way that you make me sigh
With pleasure and rapture, emotion and bliss,
Each time that you hold me, to give me a kiss.
There are reasons abound…

I know for a sure thing that I love the sound
Of your voice and your laugh, and I love your dear face,
No one else can ever take your place.
You’re a glow in my life, golden and bright.
I’m thankful for the happy ties that bind
Me to you...

The way your eyes smolder and hypnotize
Your touch–what delicious sensations when we’re……hmm!!!
Well...I’m crazy about you!

Will you have coffee with me?

Alen was a 19 years old, staying with his mother, loved his Bicycle, his dog, his paint brush and his beautiful room, he wanted to live every moment of his life as he had very less of it, yes …you are guessing it right he had leukemia (cancer) and was not curable, but despite of his sickness he was never sad he did not fear death, full of life and cheerful, that was just amazing about this guy.

Right in front of Alen’s house there was a Book & Music CD shop, he used to sit by his window and watch passer bys, children going to school and sketch them…One day when he was sketching near his window suddenly a beautiful face caught his attention, his eyes were engaged with the innocence and cuteness of this beauty, he wanted to go and meet her know who she is, talk to her, paint her, it was almost evening , he saw her take a bus and leave.

That night he couldn’t sleep at all, his dreams were crowded with beautiful thoughts of the lady, and he wanted to be lost in it forever.  Next day he visited the shop and saw she was a sales assistant in the shop. Her name was Stacy.  He said he had come to buy some good music CD and books on love stories. She suggested a few, whatever she said sounded like a beautiful music, Alen was madly in love, he went there every day to buy a Book /CD … He told his mother about it, his mother said “why don’t you ask her out one day?”

He decided he will do that- gathered all his courage and asked “Beautiful lady, Will you have Coffee with me?  Stacy just smiled and packed the book he asked for. Every day from then Alen would ask her out for a coffee, but she just smiled and said nothing…few weeks later Alen passed away, his mother cried inconsolably, all she had was her son and she lost him forever …

Days passed Stacy wondered why Alen doesn’t come to meet her in the shop, one day she decided to check.  She went to his house, Alen’s mother was not sure of who she was, when she introduced herself, Alen’s mother had tears in her eyes, she said …”So you are stacy , Alen loved you so much, he just asked you out for a coffee every day, but you denied , how can you be so heartless, he passed away with this wish in his heart”  Stacy left the house with tears in her eyes.

Half a month after Alen’s death, his mother decided to shift to a new place , she was cleaning Alen’s cupboard , She saw books which were unopened, the CD’s were sealed she opened one of them a small chit fell on the floor, she picked it up..It read “Hi’ ‘m stacy, Will you have coffee with me…?"
Alen’s mother was shocked to read it, she opened all the books and CD to find that each had a chit which read “Alen..I will”, “Alen…I Love you” …. Alen’s mother went to the book shop immediately and there she was informed that Stacy could not survive an accident and she was no more…

The Coffee is still waiting, but the people who wanted to have it are no more…
Love makes no sound!

Happily married….and ???

 “Marriages are made in heaven.”

I always kept dreaming, “A handsome prince will drive me through a luxurious life.” This is what every girl thinks and the same was with Henna. Henna was from a middle class family (Delhi based), happy and excited about the smallest thing in life, life was a roller coaster ride for her , average in studies , a very good painter, her paintings used to always the resemble the person she was.

She made lot of friends, they all used to love and care for her, who will not love a person who is full of talent and fun to be with.

Her mother was a housewife, Father a government servant, brother an MBA. As usual her parents were worried about her future, the worrying starts since the day a girl  is born, when henna was 19 she started getting marriage proposals , and she was desperately waiting for prince charming , finally one proposal clicked, it was a rich family (from Marwar) ,Akshar – the boy was very handsome, it was love at first sight for Henna, she was madly in love with Akshar, they were engaged and the marriage was supposed to take place 3 months after engagement… All this was a dream come true for Henna.

Henna’s father was tensed, as he did not have enough source to arrange finance for her wedding. Cos' there were more demands than expected , Finally he decided to sell his only property his house…He did not mention about it at home. He requested the new owner of the property to let him stay on rent for four months.

The Marriage Day-
Friends, Relatives …everyone attended the wedding, it was a lavish celebration, a day to remember, Henna was in seventh heaven! She just couldn’t take her eyes off akshar.

The First Night-
WOW! This night is full of hopes, excitement and ‘of course n everlasting wish in life.
However it was not the case with henna, as she entered the room, she was the bed was decorated with roses and there was a young lady waiting for her in the room….Whos’ She? This was the first thing which came into mind….
Let’s cut the story short …'m mean you have to suggest the rest :)

What do you think, who’s that young lady??
Sister –in-law, First Wife, Girlfriend, Secretary, Vamp …that’s what you and me are thinking – We all are influenced by T.V. serials, not only in reel life but also in real life , we are implementing the same thoughts, may what the situation or circumstances are.

We have forgotten and lost the charm of first love, sacred marriage, union of two hearts, this all are mere poetic words for us. Marriages are made in heaven; often this has been written and spoken. But how many people really understand what it means?

Today, Marriage is like a short term business plan; definition of marriage has depreciated and reduced to a mere contract for legalized union of bodies, an arrangement for legally satisfying our lust and not our dream. There is no dream partner or dream life with the partner anymore. Two people fall in love, get married and realize that they have committed a big mistake in life.

Divorce is increasing among young newly wedded couples. Relationship between two people moves faster than light…

It is not the “HE” or “SHE” to be blame; both are equally responsible and influenced.

Let’s put an effort to nurture a relationship, which will be long and everlasting. Make an attempt to try and prevent this degradation of definition of marriage and use marriage as a relationship for evolution of universal love, rather , than as a short term relationship tool to fulfill our thirst for lust. I am sure there would be no divorces, no more unhappily married couple, and no marital affairs – when we start seeing our partner (husband /wives) in a larger role.

We all want a happy ending…somewhere we all want to see henna happy, it is your pure and beautiful thought about a relationship which will complete this story.

Married and lived happily everafter!

Sting Operation!

Do you feel sleepy all the day? Do you hate people who gossip about you? Do you want to be active and alert even in a crowd?

Sting Operation!!! Now this can be possible, only if you travel in train, specifically western suburbs (ladies compartment), As you soon as you run and catch a seat for yourself, the operation starts, the bugs and the white ants, start sucking your blood, and biting you constantly, the bugs enjoy breakfast at peak hours , when the train is packed (crowded), this is again a biggest mission/stunt a common man has to accomplish everyday ,  I actually say that every person who commutes by train is brave .

Can you beat this-  we donate blood everyday to the bugs hiding in the seat, and to add to it you get to watch the wild life in the train itself for FREE! FREE! FREE!, like the cockroaches in all shapes and sizes, white and burgundy,  with stripes(zebra cockroach :), mouse, mini rats, baby lizards, and the most attractive, entertaining and amazing part is, the ladies compartment, you'll forget radio FM and every entertainment channel, it is full of fights, sweat, shouts, yells and more…(my practical experience :).

When the train arrives the destination(platform), you see people struggling to get out from the train to breathe fresh air and get rid of the REWARDS THEY GET FOR THEIR BRAVERY

 The list of rewards are as follows-

  • Free wildlife entertainment (baby snake is a special attraction);-)- no maintenance
  • Bugs making life miserable
  • You can’t beat the fragrance of sweating underarms.
  • Eunuchs bless you on daily basis only if you pay them
  • Free entertainment, when women fight like cats
  • Mini shopping’ mall (I hope you guessed it)
  • Mini beauty parlour
  • Group discussions (Gossips/ Bitching)
  • Bhajans and Movie songs - Voice of India / Sa Re Gama will get  less sponsors if they see the, versatile singers in the ladies compartment.

And most important thing – Death is so easy , any day a tiny bomb can burst like a cracker in any compartment and you’ll have to say goodbye to life. (that means train also controls population)

I know this was a bit harsh, just laugh it off , overcome your fear and sorrow … Chill! This is  Mumbai Train Life !!…
Sting Operation to be contd...

Indian Porn – Pornography is becoming a home-grown

Sunny Leone, Sahara Knite , Shabina a.k.a.Destiny Deville, Shakeela: Priya Trivedi , the famous Savita bhabhi they are all not only superstars they were and some are famous superporn stars, their videos and article’s get more hits in day then any other celebrity articles, or information network.

Indian porn, a rage among voyeurs, As far as web brands go, ‘Indian porn’ has come to have a cult following in the country almost six years after an MMS sex clip of two Delhi teens found its way to the internet. Bored with professional pornography, voyeurs have latched on to internet sites and BitTorrent downloads for videos shot on the sly of women having sex with their partners, taking a shower in a hotel bathroom or trying dresses in a clothes store’s changing room.Viewers prefer to watch real sex, as, such porn is a real steal for websites maximum numbers of they prefer these voyeuristic videos over the regular adult fare.”

While couple of years back following the case of the 19-year-old Kandivili girl whose friends spiked her drink and made a sex video of her with their cell phones, the internet to be flooded with similar clips often posted with catchy headlines. In the case of the Kandivili girl, her MMS wasn’t uploaded online, but distributed among her college mates. There was a police complaint made by the girl…the rest has to follow as most victims don’t even know their privacy has been breached.

Pornography is becoming a home-grown industry; it is here—
It is not just feeding their fantasy; it is also redefining their intimacy.Video rentals are the most common form of pornography while one in 10 porn-viewing women say they are willing to star in their own skin film given a chance. And some women are not even aware of what has happened.

Boys and Girls – Beware! There might be a camera around to disclose your privacy.
Your fun and intimate moments may lead to thousands of people’s fantasy.

Empower the “SHE”

Power India – Empower the “SHE”

Did You Know?
More than 300 million people in India live in absolute poverty-a number equal to all the people living in the US. The majority of these people are rural and female. Girls are a critically vulnerable group and a keystone of development in the country. More than half the girls in India marry before the age of 18. Younger, the bride the greater her chance – of being trapped in poverty and becoming malnourished, anemic and at risk for maternal mortality. More than 51% of women in India have no say in decisions about their own health. 65% of the school-aged children who are not enrolled in school are girls.

In some states of India women are still like the domesticated pets caged in the house. Females receive less health care than males. Many women die in childbirth of easily prevented complications. Working conditions and environmental pollution further impairs women’s health. In recent years, there has been an alarming rise in atrocities against women in India, in terms of rapes, assaults and dowry-related murders. Fear of violence suppresses the aspirations of all women. Female infanticide and sex-selective abortions are additional forms of violence that reflect the devaluing of females in Indian society. While women are guaranteed equality under the constitution, legal protection has little effect in the face of prevailing patriarchal traditions. Women lack power to decide who they will marry, and are often married off as children. Legal loopholes are used to deny women inheritance rights.

India has a long history of activism for women’s welfare and rights, which has increasingly focused on women’s economic rights. A range of government programs , social workers, activists have schemes and slogans for the security of women have been launched , although there appear to be no existing programs to address the cultural and traditional discrimination against women that leads to her abject conditions.
We should take the responsibility individually to enhance girls’ capability to demand and secure better services in such areas as health, education and family infrastructure. Increasing solidarity among women and girls forming a unified voice and support for the changes they seek to implement in their families and communities. Create awareness about key health, education and financial practices. Build confidence to influence family decisions and the community.

When this happens, then and only then powerful India will emerge.

My First Love...

I don’t really know how to explain this. But this is especially true for me. The first person in my life- who I love immensely is… very special and deserves life’s best.

My first love- “My Mother “She is the most beautiful creation on earth. My mother is an extraordinary woman and also the most important woman in my life. She is the most fascinating woman I have ever known. Writing about her is new territory for me. She has a big impact on my life. In many ways, writing about her makes me understand myself even better.

When I was just a kid, I used to smear my face with my mama’s lipstick and model her earrings and high heels, wanting to be just like her. I used to run around the house draping her sari and literally tearing it sometime…, she helped me in my studies, spanked me when I was wrong (I miss those spanking’s today)…Hmm…@?//* Memories worth treasuring!

Today… she is my best friend and guide, she’s my Goddess of inspiration- I worship her.Everything that my mother has ever done has been overshadowed by the thought behind it. While the raw experiences I have had at home have been spectacular, I have learned to truly value them by watching my mother. She has enriched my life with her passion for learning and writing, and changed it with her devotion to humanity.

My mother’s accomplishments have meant a lot to me. I hope to inherit her virtues and follow her footsteps in order to make her proud. My achievements will be a tribute of love to her.“My mother” – for me is the most and only beautiful women on earth.
Mom you are and will always be the everlasting, precious and worthy relative in my life.
Mom …I Love You!

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” – Washington Irvin Quotes

I'm sure... after reading this you would want to share a world about your First Love :)

Most Unwanted!

Forgotten Age – Most Unwanted!

Twinkle in the eye, but darkness in existence; the Indian girl child –

One day I was cleaning my desk, when my niece who is six years old came next to me and said “Masi , ‘m I unwanted , It seems that parents don’t like a girl child. My birth must be troubling everyone in the family.” I looked at her shocked. Honey! who the hell told you this? And she started crying? It was not important who told her, but the fact that still people live and believe this fact is a shame.

The Indian girl child is outlined by our country’s traditions. Discrimination of gender equality, female infants dumped in trash, unborn fetuses sniffed in the womb, all this continues in the society .There is no end to this cruel ritual practices . Our society has dealt the girl child a rough hand, starting even before birth, till the end of life.
The number of sexual abuse and domestic violence cases against women clearly throws light on the fact that girl child in India do not enjoy even basic rights; their health and education. They are deprived of their own lives. The cost of this neglect is high, both for the girl child and for society.

Let’s get aware and rather make an attempt to envision a society that is sensitive, aware and free from prejudice that affects the girl child.Grab any opportunity of decision-making for the advancement of the girl child.

I'm the first one to to take a step ahead...what about you?

The most Best Comment , which I cudn' miss to mention
Soham writes----

When I read what anu wrote, it was shocking! I started collecting thoughts, to pen down an article/blogpost to strengthen anu’s thought- or may be INDIAs thought! Mind ran faraway searching for similar instances, and I broke down ashamed of our societal morals and the way we neglect NATURE and its rule. Moment after that, I thought of cementing these cracks with a positive story, which I witnessed. I know a family (Name doesn’t matter), who had a girl child, later when they tried for a boy (now, this is weird), the lady was pregnant with twin babies…both girls (This happened several years back, when sex determination was not illegal). Lady and her husband took a little time to digest this! But, husband stood up accepting twin girls with a proud smile on his face. Entire family danced in joy to welcome TWIN STARS! Now, they are awesome family together! WHO DOESN’T WANT A GIRL CHILD NOW?

Thank you Soham :)

Dear Friends, Please feel free to share in your thought!
