Once upon a time, i lost myself...

It happened a few days back and what happened had never happened before. i generally do not doubt what i believe in, but that day, somehow, that evil snake of doubt had me so tight in his grip that i almost lost faith... i cried so hard that i couldnt hear anything beyond my own sobs. no voice of reason colud be heard.
I always like to call myself " a ray of hope" and i always think that if i lose hope in good stuff, everybody else will too. this perception keeps me going and makes my faith grow stronger each day. it inspires me to keep believing in what i already believe in.
that day, the fire was almost gone. i cried myself to sleep. i gave in to the death of my faith. i surrendered to the fact that nothing i would do, would change stuff around me. what was the use?
everybody i knew was as lonely as i was. what difference could i make?
when suddenly, in my half dreamy state, something i heard in a movie echoed in my ear.
" if we are all alone, we are all in this together too"
that was enough. that was just what i needed.
no matter what we do, how bad things may get, there is always somebody somewhere going through exactly what we are going through. and perhaps that person is fighting more bravely than we are.
that is inspiring, always a ray of hope.
and so i opened my eyes, and managed to shove that awful snake off my back.
i am my natural self again, smiling and hoping to spread more smiles, more than ever.

today morning, one of my friends had written the following line in his status
" every story is a fairytale, it all depends where you end the story"
so true!!!
Cinderella might never have found her prince had she just run away when the clock struck 12 and the prince had not made the effort to pick up the shoe and find the girl who owned it.
isnt it so simple, you just gotta make an extra effort to turn your life around..
so why not start with it today?
smile, laugh, have faith and keep the hopes high..
and let the magic of love begin!!!

Ray of hope!!!


I have late realized that however hard you may try, things will change...
and right now, like a little innocent girl, i am only watching as things around me spectacularly change...
people are losing hope, spirit and smiles and it seems a weird pessimism has taken over all my friends. stupid competitive exams are tearing them apart and the worst part is, if you try to tell them that it doesn't have to be this way, you know what i get to hear???
some say," Oh! life isn't a fairytale" or may be " ye sab halwa nahin hai"
i mean, nobody around me is technical or wants to do engineering...
they all want to make their lives creative and yet end up crying about not doing good in something they never want to do...
i don't understand...
and i am pretty sure whoever reads this must think that i am getting pessimistic too.
and yes, probably i am..
but once i finish writing, i am going to smile again because i am glad that atleast this time i have made my decision...
a decision not to change with things anymore. to change things and put them right just as i would like to see it...
and please, everybody, don't lose hope.
don't let these colleges define you or decide your future...
come on, everybody ends up happy and when the journey isn't making you happy then the destination won't make you happy either...
decide what you want and start towards it and enjoy each second of the journey...
and you might just end up being happier than you ever though you would be!!!

Recent News!!!



I have recently finished reading 2 books and i thought i must tell everybody about them...
the first is a famous one.
'the alchemist' by paulo coelho which teaches me something or the other each time i read it and leaves behind a totally new philosophy everytime...
he is certainly a terrific writer..
the second one that i read was "the book of a thousand days" and that book was freat too...
its actually a fairytale, but one that is written with a magical hand..
a perfect combination of love, service and bravery...
its a amazing how stories teach you things that they dont mean too and yet they end up leaving a wonderful lesson for your heart.
i always heard books are your best friends...
after having read so many books, i think i know why they say that..
