The Feels

I call my down moments/feelings The Feels. I've been told they are normal at the age of 16. But is it, really? I remember every single day when I had The Feels, the reason I had them and how I battled against them or let them crush me down. Yes, I let them overtake me. Sometimes, there’s nothing that can be done. I heard that they have a long term effect: they make you a strong, no nonsense adult.

Although I've felt them almost every day of the year I turned 16, I've been able to tackle them just a couple of times. At first, it proved me so weak that I started comparing myself with the people I consider OP (you might hear more of OP’s in the future). And that made me feel no better. I still do that but now I know how to do it in a proper way. For example, instead of point out my weakness compared to them, I consider my superiority as compared to them. This works amazingly well! But it is still a very bad idea. I reckon I start running out of ideas to make myself feel better…

End Of Year Party 2013

Image
This is perhaps the most highlighted event of the year. After tons of work, tons of revision, tons of no meet-and-greet with relatives what can be more relishing than an end of year get together?!


The preparations started a week before and obviously we were all very keen on making it a successful party- we were all enthusiastic!

My grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins (basically my whole khandhan or whatever it's supposed to be called!) were going to come over and we wanted to make sure that they would be hosted par excellence!

We had got everything ready outside the house in the garden where tables stood with a plethora of assortments, cutlery, glasses, bottles and good fooooddd and obviously whilst my stomach wanted to engulf it with its gastric acids and all my eyes were devouring it- yeah i just hope nobody went ill after that ;)



Dad is Dad and he has to make sure that nothing goes wrong and that he can see a glimpse of perfection in every single thing- so there went the charco…

Spiritual but not Religious

Image
"After the Second World War spirituality and religion became disconnected.[16] A new discourse developed, in which (humanistic) psychology, mystical and esoteric traditions and eastern religions are being blended, to reach the true self by self-disclosure, free expression and meditation.[6]
The distinction between the spiritual and the religious became more common in the popular mind during the late 20th century with the rise of secularism and the advent of the New Age movement.Paul Heelas noted the development within New Age circles of what he called "seminar spirituality":[26] structured offerings complementing consumer choice with spiritual options.
Among other factors, declining membership of organized religions and the growth of secularism in the western world have given rise to this broader view of spirituality.[27] The term "spiritual" is now frequently used in contexts in which the term "religious" was formerly employed.[28] Both theists and at…

"Everyone tells me that I need to prepare for life. Do you want to be poor? Jobless? What will you do in life? Errrr....wait, aren’t I already living life? "

If 6 years ago you had told me that the purpose of life is to make money, to go to school and pass those exams with flying colours, to join the crazy fan following of TWILIGHT, to write steamy kissing scenes during Biology Classes, to be the eternal obedient daughter well I would have bent my head and nodded helplessly. But today I'd look you straight in the eye and SMILE or perhaps grin evilishly.

Society actually thought that it could map out a life for me leaving me with the sole option of  either following it or being shunned by all. 
It actually thought that it could give birth to me, nurture me, send me to school, give me ideas of getting a job, finding Prince Charming, tieing the knot, having children..Pft, what’s so great about society anyways? 

Then Aerh struck me like a real blessing and I wanted to discover THE REAL purpose of life, the meaning behind things, the deeper understanding. I wanted to be an annoying little sociologist who had to analyze situations, decipher soc…

Rules to Happiness (Inspired by Superwoman!)

Rule # 1Be Grateful -There's nothing more joyful than saying "Thank You".. Say it for every single thing that a person does for you-from just passing you that ketchup bottle to helping you revise on the eve of an exam.. Notice the flicker in that person's eye- a sparkle that seems to reach you to bless you.. And then there's the feeling of greatness that you feel from within just by being grateful.. Be thankful for each breath you're taking and believe me suddenly you experience that you are, that you exist, that you are living...HAPPINESS!


Rule # 2
The concepts of heaven and hell are not confined to places above and below us. Heaven and hell can be achieved during life, everyday, through a state of mind and being. My personal belief is that Earth is Heaven. Just stop thinking that there somewhere to reach and somewhere from where to escape. Realise that you've already reached the destination. Realise that HAPPINESS comes from living in the present and not …
