Having a reason to love someone is like not loving that person for what they are.

Every time God sent a problem He sent along with few blessings but I kept on lamenting so much about the problems that I forgot to smile and enjoy the blessings.

Whispering Wednesday

Today's Whispering Wednesday Word  is Remember. We all want to be remember always, long after we have left others lives. We want to be remembered for good reasons with a smile and love in heart. This picture which I came across on internet expresses the reasons behind ' remember' very beautifully.

A note to you, my friend!

Dear Dumpling, I know I have told this to you often and very frequently but somehow today I felt like putting it down here as this is the only way I could think of immortalizing our friendship sealing it here in these words forever. In life there are times when we say a lot of things and don’t mean them, mean a lot of things and don’t say and at times we say a lot of things and mean them too. This is one such occasion where I am going to say a lot of things and mean each one of them, truly from my heart! Source: Google Images Some people you meet in life and fall in love with them. Some you meet who fall in love with you. And then there are some, who make you fall in love with yourself. As they show you "YOU" the way you have never seen till now!   I have been very fortunate to have met YOU – who has made me fall in love with myself all over again as you introduced me to a newer myself.

Book Review: The Tell-Tale Brain by V. S Ramachandran

Introduction ·          ISBN: 9788184001198 ·          Genre : Non-Fiction ·          Price: Rs. 499/- ( I got this book from the publisher for a review) ·          Pages: 358 ·          Publishers: Random House India Human mind has always been a mystery for all of us since eternity. The way we behave, we talk, we feel, we think or we emote is all a result of this tiny thing that is housed somewhere inside our body. The curious cat that I am, I wanted to know it all and what better hearing it from the author who is known as the Marco Polo of neuroscience.  Behind The book Source: Google Images A masterpiece. The best of its kind and beautifully crafted…Ramachandran is the foremost pioneer – the Galileo – of neurocognition .   – Alan Snyder FRS, Australian National University.

The worst thing you can ever do to anyone is look straight into that person's eye and lie blatantly, so convincingly that that person fears looking into your eye ever again after that.

When you are at the wrong end of the road, it is important to look back and consider taking a U turn rather than just jumping off the cliff.

Book Review : Collected Stories by Anita Desai

Introduction ·          ISBN: 978-8-18400-056-6 ·          Genre : Fiction ·          Price: Rs. 299/- ( I got this book from the publisher for a review) ·          Pages: 334 ·          Publishers: Random House India Helen Keller had said, “ The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched they must be felt with the heart .” If there was an example which could be given to substantiate this quote it would be Collected Stories by Anita Desai. It is something on which anything written or said will not suffice; it is an experience which one must get only by reading it. Behind The book Source: Google Images Buried resentments, un-expected disappointments, new friendships, small acts of cruelty, journeys that take you back to where you started. With trademark compassion and tender irony, Anita Desai’s short stories give us familiar worlds made unfamiliar to wonderful effect.

Sometimes you are not left with any choice in life as along with the questions it decides to present you the answers as well.

Thought for TODAY: 2nd Jan 2013

At times life chooses to give answers to us in various forms to all the questions we fumble with in very simple ways - sometimes its a song, sometimes a message, a photo or a person.

Worrying and Laughing - Guest Post

To begin the new year today on my blog I have a very dear friend Ghanchakkar who blogs at Precariousness , doing a guest post.  Sometimes in life you meet few people who make you see YOU in a different light altogether. They come with a message and few lessons after which you are never ever the same. I can say I am lucky to have met someone like that in him. We met through our respective blogs and today we share a beautiful friendship which has proudly stood the test of time.  Without taking too much of his space I will let him do the talking now as I will leave talking about our friendship for another post :

Every year comes with its own challenges, beliefs, opportunities and reasons. Here's to each one of them as I embark on a journey to explore them each day ~ Cheers!! **** In life it takes only one person either to make you happy or sad by their actions ~ beyond which it does not matter what the world thinks about you.
