“A book has but one vioce, but it does not instruct everyone alike.”

How to pass time? There are so many good things to do in life… isn’t it? Look at the pot in which last summer I bought a plant which had a yellow flower with two little buds and later by winter I see they are not only dead but the pot was all dried up and even the sand was dried as if nothing to offer to give a life to the plant. These flowers with the vase was a gift from my friend :D
“Gardening is the art that uses flowers and plants as paint, and the soil and sky as canvas” ~ Elizabeth Murray
And guess what, this morning when I see the pot which was empty all these days has few green leaves :D…past couple of weeks rains have given this life…I loved the life growing in my arms as the days pass it gives new innovative ways to smile!!
“How beautiful is youth! how bright it gleams with its illusions, aspirations, dreams! Book of Beginnings, Story without End, Each maid a heroine, and each man a friend!” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Well, besides cherishing bringing the new life into this w…

“Life, like all other games, becomes fun when one realizes that it's just a game”

After looking at India’s performance in the World Cup, I didn’t feel like watching much of the cricket anymore! Well, just to take an out break from it, I had an opportunity to watch “Hattrick” movie!
There might be critics who will thrash this movie but I kind of found a true essence to find happiness in one’s life. This movie if you want, watch it without giving much tension to your brain ;) yup that’s what I would suggest.
“I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime.” ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
With a light heart and mind and a bit of humor sense…yup that’s what I would suggest! Even the songs are not much of importance but they do add there own flavors to it! I liked Nana Patekar and Danny’s role! Danny still looks so young and healthy. I always liked this actor , and its always good to see him. Paresh Rawal I think one can see how well he can act but he is spoiling his career …

Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after

Communication – how important it is to make rather how important it is to make one understand?I sometimes wonder communicating to someone with eye contact is only not sufficient as you want to know the person really understands what you are saying?“Even if you do learn to speak correct English, whom are you going to speak it to?” ~ Clarence DarrowMany times even two people with same temperament but miss the part of understanding as they often feel the person is throwing allegations and how does the person communicate where he/she should be able to communicate the mere fact and not that its an allegation but a notion or a statement that needs to be done!
“People say conversation is a lost art; how often I have wished it were” ~ Edward R. Murrow
Many times the mind’s temperament is also a big cause in misunderstanding or misinterpreting! You hate when you see you are talking and someone is just not paying attention, and still they show as if they are listening to you :D
“When people talk, …

“Everyone has a talent. What is rare is the courage to nurture it in solitude and to follow the talent to the dark places where it leads.”

“Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. They bless the one who receives them, and they bless you, the giver.” ~ Barbara Se AngelisMother Nature has given so many reasons in life to be happy and of all we forget to cherish them and enjoy and celebrate the moments
“There is a sufficiency in the world for man's need but not for man's greed.” ~Mohandas K. Gandhi
If we look around …we don’t have to even think of evil about anyone! But do we do that? Do we carry that heart which can cherish these good things in life and be thankful to Mother Nature for giving us the moment to be in where we are now?
“If you nurture your mind, body, and spirit, your time will expand. You will gain a new perspective that will allow you to accomplish much more.” ~ Brian Koslow
I am trying to remind the hidden beauty within us and our surroundings and let this be the beginning of spring where the thought of love, care, nurture be sprung through out!
“The Grand essentials of happi…

“Motherhood has a very humanizing effect. Everything gets reduced to essentials.”

“The child must know that he is a miracle, that since the beginning of the world there hasn't been, and until the end of the world there will not be, another child like him.” ~ Pablo Casals
“Art is the child of Nature; yes, her darling child, in whom we trace the features of the mother's face, her aspect and her attitude.” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Every Woman Should Feel Proud Not Only Today But Always, It's Our Right :)

International Women's Day (8th March) is an occasion marked by women's groups around the world. This date is also commemorated at the United Nations and is designated in many countries as a national holiday. When women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, come together to celebrate their Day, they can look back to a tradition that represents at least nine decades of struggle for equality, justice, peace and development.“A woman is like a tea bag, you can not tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water” ~ Nancy Regan
International Women's Day is the story of ordinary women as makers of history; it is rooted in the centuries-old struggle of women to participate in society on an equal footing with men. In ancient Greece, Lysistrata initiated a sexual strike against men in order to end war; during the French Revolution, Parisian women calling for "liberty, equality, frate…

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words

I have often mentioned about my favorite poet Gulzar, however I never added his songs on my radio blog and I kind a always felt guilty about it!!!Today I dedicate this post and my radio blog to Gulzar.“Dedication is not what others expect of you, it is what you can give to others.”
Saampooran Singh Kalra, better known by the pen name of Gulzar, is a poet above all things. His style marks a sensitivity that is best reflected through his writing and treatment of films. He is one of those sensitive people whose work is laced with the lyrical but psychologically adept examination of human sensibilities.“The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication.”
Gulzar has been honoured time and again for his work. This includes winning the National Award thrice - Best Screenplay for Koshish, Best Director for Mausam and Best Lyricist for Ijaazat. He has also won the Filmfare Award a number of times. Gulzar is also the au…

“Laughter without a tinge of philosophy is but a sneeze of humor. Genuine humor is replete with wisdom.”

Its like the first love bite :D…that you don’t realize you got one and you suffer until someone points out to you :DYes friends, so far I was so proud of myself when anyone asked me if am allergic to anything and I remember to tease one of my office colleague I used to say yes I am allergic to Prunes.
“No one can possibly know what is about to happen: it is happening, each time, for the first time, for the only time.” ~ James Arthur Baldwin
Past couple of days I was sneezing and sniffing, my eyes were watery and my stuffy nose didn’t allow me to sleep well and guess what today the doctor said its allergy nothing else :D“He's a new friend at a sneeze; the most you can get of him is a God bless you”Gosh! I am also caught in the midst of it and they say ~ Welcome to California :DI was sad a bit for a while but I felt good that at least I know what it is and I have the remedy for it ;)
So I guess I should go with the saying ~ Don’t worry be happy ;)

“A Picture of many colors proclaims images of many Thoughts.”

Today is Holi – the festival of colors and now a days it has only remained in Greeting cards and memories! “Memory is a child walking along a seashore. You never can tell what small pebble it will pick up and store away among its treasured things.” ~Pierce HarrisI remember, as kid I used to look forward for this day. We used to dress-up for this day so that even if the colors don’t go off it was okay!Deepu my childhood friend used to come home to invite me and we used to run to his place where every year his father was able to throw the water balloon on me! No idea but he was smart enough to hide and throw it through the bedroom window! His mom, who is a shy lady was never shy at that time and she used to have her hidden tricks to make me drenched in the water color. “We do not remember days; we remember moments.” ~Cesare PaveseThere used to be lots of snacks and sweets and we all used to just rush on it and after that Deepu and along with his two sisters we used to have fun til…

“It is by chance that we met, by choice that we became friends.”

“You meet people who forget you. You forget people you meet. But sometimes you meet those people you can't forget. Those are your 'friends.'”Exactly what it happened yesterday evening, when a friend dropped in with some goodies :D except that we were not silent :DWe were talking so much and to be frank I have realized many times personally this …when I meet a person, sometimes its just that ‘click’ that takes place without even you realizing and you feel as if you have known each other for years!“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, 'What! You too? I thought I was the only one”It was a nice feeling after moving from Canada to US, which was a big change however to go through it by leaving all your friends and achievements was a bit painful even though this move was also a re-union and I couldn’t have asked for anything better than this :D!“Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.”
Its very difficult…
