Madamoiselle

The zing of my day
Have no words to say
Its a little too much for me to do
For its a lot like Do Re Mi Sol Fa Ti Do


A little sweet , a little bitter
But Love the way you chatter
You are the striking go-getter
The world dances to your laughter


Cheeky on the outside
But a heart of love inside
This is the side you never show
But you have reasons you know


Love the way you are
You are an heavenly star
Hope you stay forever
As i don't want to sever

(PS: Don't get hyper excited ,feedback please!!!!!!!!!)

TIGER

"Tiger tiger burning bright
In the forests of the night
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?"

A few lines from William blake' Poem 'The Tiger'. Its sad that there are only 1411 tigers left. Its a shame to see our National Animal diminishing in number. Lets raise our voice against poaching of tigers. Let us save our national animal.
Long Live the tigers , the Pride of India .

The French Connection

I always wanted to learn a foreign language, my friend suggested me that we learn French.After 2 years ,no i guess 4 of having it on my head,the D day arrived when my friend and me registered for the beginner's course. The first day of the class was hilarious and well almost all the classes after that. It was way over my head to get the pronounciations right.We had to read the given material in french ,the instructor used to guide us with the pronounciations.

Each day was fun, we used to have activities where we had to act out scenes and talk in french ofcourse.It was tough but it was fun. The first test was way over my head ,we had to listen to some nombres(numbers)and write it down, well the test went really bad .
To talk about French culture, its different, its nice,they greet in many different ways in different parts of France and thats really interesting.Its really a pleasant culture to know.

We all had an opportunity to talk about France.I chose Fashion in France. It was fun researching about Paris,The Fashion Capital ,the Haute Couture houses,the Fashion Street..........Well i ended up with a 5 minutes talk on the various fashion events in France.


One of the interesting activities was The Cooking Competition . We were given the opportunity to participate in the competition ,we had to present a French dish prepared by our team, there were 3 volunteers one of them was my friend.They prepared French Salad,i guess with beetroot. Shopping, the day before the competition was fun , we had to shop a lot of new stuffs. The day of the competition was lovely , i ended up going late but was in time to taste the most delicious Crepe.
It was lovely,luscious and the toppings on the crepe was so tasty........
After the competition our instructor showed us a French movie.It was the original Bheja Fry.
Well the course ended with an oral exam,it went pretty well.I guess i can manage to talk in French :)

On the whole the experience of learning a new language and knowing a whole new culture was great.

2009 The year that was.......

Hmmmmmmm, 2009 was a year of revelations to me.It still makes me wonder that time has passed and there has been a new horizon. The year has taught me a lot about myself,the relationships, my endurance which i can never forget.It all started with me losing my job and then wondering for days together what next????????
This question used to disturb me every now and then, i was torn between my heart and mind.I can say i had been tested for things unknown to me.It made me think on a level that i hadn't been exposed to.

As J K Rowling puts "The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are, ever after, secure in your ability to survive. You will never truly know yourself, or the strength of your relationships, until both have been tested by adversity. Such knowledge is a true gift, for all that it is painfully won, and it has been worth more than any qualification I ever earned."

Its so true , never had i racked my brains so hard , never had i thought about life in a whole new perception,never had i realised that relationships mean a lot to me,never did i know that some friends stay for a season and some stay for a reason, never had i realised the inner me until i had this experience.
I am so thankful that i experienced it.It was a rich experience to me. I learnt a lot about myself and a whole lot of things.I spent time on things that i always wanted to do since ages.It was an opportunity to know myself in different arenas.
One of the things being this sharing my thoughts with people.

I have not literally gone through the experience but "I have grown through the experience." I have realised to follow my heart and do the things i love.

"Tout est bien."

For a long time i questioned
For a long time i searched
For an answer i least expected
For i knew not what i wanted

Maybe i knew deep in my heart
Maybe i wanted it with all my heart
I am sure i am living with it now
I am sure its my life now.

The SeCrEt of LiFe

The Secret of life has long been suppressed through ages. Great personalities have just passed it on among themselves but never shared it with the world . Einstein , Newton ,Edison , Hugo , Emerson ,Beethoven , Lincoln the list goes on .

The Secret is the LAW OF ATTRACTION . The law that binds the world .
The law that rules our lives -NO -> We are the creators of that attraction . Do you want to know how?????????

When you hold thoughts in your mind , you are certainly attracting that thought which will eventually become the reality.Whatever is going on your mind , is attracting to you.We are the magnets of attraction.Hold on to the thoughts of what you want , make it clear in your mind,it then invokes the greatest law-The Law of Attraction.You become what you think about most ,more than that you attract what you think about most. Thoughts become things. Every thought has a frequency.Thoughts are sending the magnetic signals that is drawing the parallel back to you.It works everytime.Some people think about what they don't want and it shows up again and again. Law of attraction just responds to your thoughts be it negative or positive.

When you are looking at a thing you want ( say a car , bike ) , you are saying Yes to it you are actually activating that thought and law of attraction is responding to that and bringing it to you , the same way when you feel that you don't want a thing , you are saying No to it ,law of attraction responds to it and is giving it to you .Law of attraction is always working whether you understand it or not and believe it or not .When you think something is bad , you are actually creating your thought to be bad .Through your thoughts emotions are created.Emotions are the best way to know whether you are off-track or on-track.They give the FEEDBACK. The better you feel , the more you are in alignment with the thing that pleases you.


A very good example is when you get up in the morning and feel its going to be a good day - everything goes on well and smoothly but when you feel its not going to be good ( for us indians getting on the wrong side of the bed) we feel that the day is not going to be good and at the end of the day we would have had a bad day.

When you are having bad feelings , bad thoughts think of something beautiful , listen to a song , sing a song for yourself.And they just vanish.

There are three steps for the LAW OF ATTRACTION

1. Ask
2. Answer
3. Receive


When you want something think of it visualize it , universe will make it happen to you , you don't need to know how universe will arrange itself and when the universe answers-bring yourself in alignment with what you want through the feeling of passion ,gratitude,happiness.
As Paulo Coelho puts "When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it."

Some Powerful processes that you should know
Gratitude- Be happy with what you have , think what you can achieve with that little something which is indeed special .
Visualization- Imagine what you want in life , visualize yourself as a person you are going to be in the future ,leading life happily and with full content.


Always think about happier thoughts. Thoughts and emotions are continuously reassembling ,recreating our body . Any stress , illness can be cured if you have your thoughts in the positive outlook that you will be fine , happy .


"Follow ur bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls."

Well my friends you may think this absolute %$*@ but it is TRUE.
I actually got this information from a documentary named SECRET that i watched. It made me think if it was possible. I just traced back to my past years- I wanted some things in life , to do certain things in life and today - I HAVE IT ALL , COMPLETED WHAT I WANTED TO DO BECAUSE THOSE THINGS WERE ALWAYS ON MY MIND and lo behold I have done all that .It surprised me , it is very intriguing my friends but its true .I have personally felt it. I know its all there around me , the thoughts , the feelings the attractions.

You still may not believe it but think for a moment about your past goals ,aims ,objectives and you will certainly have atleast one/ two / many goals you have achieved whether you are aware of them or not , you certainly would have .


Its all thanks to this documentary - THE SECRET
Do watch it , if you come across it.

Wild or Life

Ever thought about running away from home .
Ever thought about going far away where no one can reach you .
Ever thought about leading a life for yourself .
Ever thought about finding the truth about life .


Well i do think about this every now and then . Especially questioning , why should we lead our lives by some rules of LIFE ( SOCEITY is the appropriate word ). Education , degree ,career ,family ,success , death . Is this what life is all about? Guess I am on the lines of my very first post The Awakening .


I won't bore you readers with my intriguing philosophy , I will just narrate a story.

I shall name the protagonist as 'Supertramp' .
Supertramp was a strongwilled person , a great athlete , a leader in his college days .
He came from an upper middleclass family , his father worked for NASA , his mother worked for Hughes aircraft and he had a younger sister.

His academic success and his background made him show contempt for the soceity , the materialistic world. This urges him to abandon this materialistic ,conventional world .
He sets out into the wild with courage ,idealism , willpower ,spirit to know the truth about life. He destroys his credit cards ,money(burns them) and donates his savings to charity .
He doesn't tell his family about where he is going .

He starts his journey to reach alaska where he feels true knowledge will be found . He gets caught in a flash flood , he abandons his car .He comes across a hippie couple who are friendly and he spends little time with them . He then journeys ahead and starts working in a farm to make a living and learns about farming and he moves on after the farmer gets arrested . He forays into the colarado river illegaly and gets to mexico . Later on travels back to LA in a goods train . He feels an urge to call home but he withdraws the idea . He meets up with an old leather worker who wants to adopt him but supertramp moves on .

After two years of abandoning his conventional life , he reaches alaska and comes across a dirty neglected school bus and makes it his home and names it the ' Magic Bus' .
He starts hunting rabbits , other animals and feeds on them . He is spellbound by the beauty , the silence ,the nature . He keeps a diary for filling his thoughts , reads books about the wild , the flora and fauna . By and by his supplies run out and he decides to cross the stream but the current of the stream bars the way . So he returns and tries to live on some plants and berries but he makes a costly mistake and consumes a poisoned wild pea instead of a wild potato and thus he dies of starvation .


This is not just a story but a 'Real- life Story' of Christopher Johnson McCandless , a man who believed in himself to reach the truth of life . He eventually writes in his journal 'Happiness is real when shared'


I salute this man for his courage ,endurance ,patience , idealism and many things more .
And he was merely 24 years when he died .
And he called himself Alexander Supertramp.

Here are some quotes of Christopher McCandless from his diary .


Christopher McCandless: Rather than love, than money, than faith, than fame, than fairness… give me truth.

Christopher McCandless: I’m supertramp.
[looks at apple]
Christopher McCandless: and you’re super apple!

Christopher McCandless: The core of mans’ spirit comes from new experiences.

Christopher McCandless: Conscious attention to the basics of life, and a constant attention to your immediate environment and its concerns, example- A job, a task, a book; anything requiring efficient concentration (Circumstance has no value. It is how one relates to a situation that has value. All true meaning resides in the personal relationship to a phenomenon, what it means to you).

Christopher McCandless: I read somewhere… how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong… but to feel strong.

Christopher McCandless: Some people feel like they don’t deserve love. They walk away quietly into empty spaces, trying to close the gaps of the past.

Christopher McCandless: If we admit that human life can be ruled by reason, then all possibility of life is destroyed.

Christopher McCandless: What if I were smiling and running into your arms? Would you see then what I see now?



I just love this quote .....................


“The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
