Dear Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, It's been 8yrs since you came up with a whole new concept. It's not just a movie, it's the way of life ,the reality of life. Be open to new challenges, stepping out of your comfort zone is as important as living! While watching, I didn't relate to just one of the character, I almost felt each one of them has been me at different points in life. I am Laila whenever I lay with my Arjun under the sky to remind him what life is really about. I am Arjun when I run after the wrong things away from the right ones. I am Kabir whenever I try to hide behind my humor and eat at my words in order to keep things going. I am Imraan when I am a poet, when I feel the need to be loved, to be laughed with not at. I am Natasha when I am so insecure that I threaten the very relationship I am trying so hard to protect. I am all of them when I am laughing with my friends, making plans that never fulfill, looking out for them and fooling around without a care for the world. Every time I find myself at the crossroads, I am Arjun trying to figure out if it's worth living like a Gypsy and giving up the dream. But is this "Dream" truly mine?? No it's not!- exclaims the Imran in my head, shaking me into consciousness while Kabir makes sure that it doesn't start another fight between my head and my heart. it all eventually comes down to making a decision for Laila, the true representation of what I want from my life. I never thought that I will be going to Spain with my friends like they did. However we've had our own share of cancelled plans, but I think the Laila in me knows that it was never about exotic destinations and crazy adventures but every moment spent with people you love. Every time I had Chai in the tapri outside my college was my Spain. Everytime we run out of the class just after giving the attendance was our bull chase. Every time we felt doomed before exams and when a smarter friend came along with the notes and taught us last minute, we were
GREW A YEAR WISER . The thought just came up in my mind, I am thinking about it since then. I have taken one more successful trip around the sun. I would say, success or failure depends on person's perception and the last 365 days were undeniably different from what I have lived before. Count the days and leave the seeds, the fruits will blossom! So, I am just typing, typing and typing. Let's see where it stops! I am a talkative person or at least I pretend to be. I write things which I usually don't talk about. And there are strange things always going on in my head, compilations of my dilemmas of what I do, what I don't, what I have to do , what I don't have to! Oh! I go desperate from being anxious to being calm, but I crave intimacy with thoughts. And miserably fail to find souls who think the way I do, eyes who look at the world like I do, ears who listen to truth and lies and distinguish them well like I do and truthful mouths who have the audacity who accept the thunderstorms they are going through, deep down. "Oh you go around and tell everyone!"-I am told. Why not? What is so pleasurable in keeping it buried and let it create a void? Having a lot of friends is not my cup of tea, but trying to know lots of people is definitely a deal I'd love to crack! If you are born on this planet, the world has the right to know about you. And I one of the member of those curiosity stricken Homo Sapien species who like to know, who like to tell, who like to listen, who like to write. You say you can feel me, I bet you can't! You certainly CAN'T! . . #noopurwrites#poems#poetry#poetrycommunity#wordgasm#poetsofindia#poetsofinsta#poetsofthefall#writing#poetporn#innervoice#poemsofig#poetrylovers#spilledink#poemoftheday#writingcommunity#writersofig#innervoicewf#microfiction#poetrysociety#storyteller#smile
The day I planned to get my hair coloured to Honey blonde, my mum rebuked. "You really are blessed with naturally beautiful hair. Why would you like to convert it to something artificial? " - she asked. "I want to experiment with new things"-I humbly replied. She wasn't convinced but mothers are mothers. They do not want to let us regret. And as a result the first person I called up after getting it done, was obviously my dearest mom. "Mummy..See!!"-I was quite hesitant. "You look like an entirely different person but in a good way. Take care of your hair from now onwards. Apply oil everyday and prevent hair fall. And yes you look pretty!" I was taken aback by her positive response but I loved it. I always have loved her for her tendency of accepting things. I sometimes ask her if she is satisfied ,to which she always has an affirmative answer. She tells me stories of a past, her school, her college, her friends, her encounter with my father, her aspirations, her knowledge. She regrets nothing, I repeat nothing. I am a rebel kid, rebel poet and she likes me that way. She doesn't want me to change my idea of living, as she says you will change as the circumstances teach you to. And I really admire the quality of ending our questionnaire session with-" Do not do anything that makes you blame yourself, but do not ever repent something you could have done, but you didn't. Do not make room for regrets. And always keep in mind that you will have kids that'll look up to you as a daily dose of motivation. Do not let them down. Choose the best out of you and make yourself proud of you everyday. Settle for good, better is an understatement, set an example." So, here I am growing up exactly like she suggested trying to fill her up with appraisals. . . #noopurwrites#poems#poetry#poetrycommunity#wordgasm#poetsofindia#poetsofinsta#poetsofthefall#writing#poetporn#innervoice#poemsofig#poetrylovers#spilledink#poemoftheday#writingcommunity#writersofig#innervoicewf
दिलों में तुम अपनी बेताबियाँ लेके चल रहे हो, तो ज़िंदा हो तुम नज़र में ख्वाबों की बिजलियाँ लेके चल रहे हो, तो ज़िंदा हो तुम हवा के झोकों के जैसे आज़ाद रहना सीखो तुम एक दरिया के जैसे लहरों में बहना सीखो हर एक लम्हे से तुम मिलो खोले अपनी बाहें हर एक पल एक नया समा देखे यह निगाहें जो अपनी आँखों में हयरानीयाँ लेके चल रहे हो, तो ज़िंदा हो तुम दिलों में तुम अपनी बेताबियाँ लेके चल रहे हो, तो ज़िंदा हो तुम!
IF HAPPINESS HAD A FACE? . If happiness had a face, It would be of my mother.. The smile dancing on her face When she finds the new Kurtis I got for her Or she finds the work done by me when she was not at all expecting it.. . If happiness had a face, It would be of my father.. The way his face glowed When I told him I loved the 'chai', He made because I was home after long Or the way his eyes sparkle Seeing me do things like a big sister and that his daughter has grown up.. . If happiness had a face It would be of my brother The way his eyes glowed When he found out I got the same 'Captain America' t-shirt he wanted Or the way he was happy to see me outside his test center waiting eagerly for him in sun.. . If happiness had a face It would be of my best friend Listening over call that I am still following his orders which he calls requests Or the way he giggles Hearing my stupidest and lamest theories of everything.. Or the way he smiles silently Knowing I miss him a lot.. . If happiness had a face It would be of my hypothetical lover The way his voice embraces me, When he says 'I love you' While being thousands of miles away.. . If happiness had a face It would be mine The way I blissfully set the pen down After writing a poem or making a painting.. . . #noopurwrites#writerscommunity#writersofindia#writingsociety#writersofinstagram#wanderness#nature_photo #travel#wanderlust#beautifuldestinations#travelgram#familyphotography#mypixeldiaries#bucketlist#vacationphotos#india_undiscovered #incredible_shot shots #incredible_india
TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR 🌠 . Twinkle Twinkle Little Star I no more wonder what you are Because there are better things to ponder on In this whole wide world where we belong We'll spend our time cringing why a friend said something she didn't even mean Or is it that the girl in brown boots got more likes just because of those shoes For hours we will wait for that one text from a person who has already moved on to next And then two more hours to finally decide which filter to use so that the dark circles hide We no more laugh our hearts out Until our bellies hurt because those tiny little emojis Seem to get our emotions curt We no more have a talk that's heart to heart We talk so just we keep going and not fall apart So No little star! We no more wonder silly things we fitish and lose our slumber There's no time to think of all things real Like the little flower on the wall crack Or the dawn sky that's so surreal We don't have the time to even look around How the little kid is astounded at the birdies chirping sound Or the twinkle in the 90year old grandfather's eyes Who is reliving his youth in that cute old lady's smile So even though we feel lonely all day long All we know is how to carry along In this urge to stay in trend,all cool who are we were trying to fool? So hey Little Star! I hope we find the strength to know What's true and kind to find beauty in those little things Dry leaves in autumn and winds of springs! . . #noopurwrites#writers_den_ #writeesofig#writingprompts#poetsofinstagram#stars#longcurls#poetrycommunity#spilledink#amwriting#instawritings#poetsandwriters#writersofindia#wordporn#writingsociety
"Some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright." - Arnold Benette (The Shawshank Redemption) You cannot hold onto someone who is meant to fly and you even shouldn't because holding someone's growth in the name of relationships and friendships is just not right,specially when you know the potential of that person. Instead of holding someone back, just give a push and help them fly higher. Choose people wisely in your life because there are people who love to see you fly,there is no jealousy only coexistense. 2 people can do the same thing in different ways, so instead of stopping someone, appreciate them or let them know that you have no issues with their work and even if you can’t help them do that. I guess this is the much needed support we need from our friends,family, colleagues and partners and if you are on the other side(the jealous one), do you think you deserve to be helped by sombody else? I am very grateful for having people who love to see me fly higher and higher. I have friends who feel proud to have me and I really want them to know that what I am today is because of these beautiful souls. . . #noopurwrites#travelgram#travelling#mypixeldiaries#indiepic#indiapicture#andamanislands#adventuretime#poetrycommunity#writerscommunity#instagood#igers#kavita#flyhigh#boatlife#snapseed#travelphotography
