Happy Mother’s Day

Walking through the front door, happy that I got a promotion. The first thing I did is searched throughout the house to find her, kept calling her and was waiting for her reply, I came across her picture and reality came crashing in. She made me be used to her, provided me the luxury of home, now it’s just an empty house ; without her warmth. The mornings are lazy because she is not the one providing me with bed tea. I keep my room still a mess hoping that she walks through the door and comes yelling at me and yet be the one cleaning the chaos. She used to read me like an open book and kept all of my secrets like her own. She became my shield from my father’s wrath and saved extra cookies from my brother’s ward just because I liked them the most. Took me to long drives during my low moments and always thought me how to fly. People say I m just like her but trust me I am not even close to the foot nail of her. Now my nights are cold because she is not around to tuck me in. Now there is good news without happiness and bad news without her long drives. She took that away with her leaving me with my broken self. Now I realized all the things I could have done for her and in all the ways I could have made it easy for her, now it haunts me that I was not able to treat her the way she deserved. I took her for granted, I should have been more caring towards her. Now I cry and cry until my tears are dried, but she is not around to take me for long drives.
Never take your Mother for granted because she gives her all for our happiness.
This MOTHER’s Day and every other day treat her like the way she deserves to be served.
Love your Mother because without her your no one.
HAPPY MOTHER’s DAY.

Blend your Fashion Trends

Today, I am writing something about fashion and trends because that’s what we did. Fashion is not what you wear, it’s all about how you carry it. We had a theme photoshoot organised and it was too good of an experience. The best thing about theme photoshoot is, you get to explore and extend your limitations. The theme was a blend of tradition wore with and new pattern. In short INDO – WESTERN. We believe in keeping it as original as it can be, you can explore in your. Let me tell you’ll it wasn’t easy but it was definitely worth it. We first settled with selecting the sarees and than pairing it with jeans and top. It’s very important when you choose your outfit colours, the colours should go with your skin tone. The jewelleries are liking icing on the cake, it justs enhance your look 1000 times better. We tried out various different drappings than the regular one’s. The whole idea of trying something new is always keeping it simple, elegant and if required sensual rather than vulgar. If the ugliest attire is worn with attitude and carried with class trust me it becomes the new fashion trend without even trying it. So stay classy and be fashionable.

Jaago Voters Jaago!!

I am a common man surrounded by many creatures, creatures that promise me with stuffs I am most vulnerable at. This creatures are so smart to target us at our weak points and get benefits out of it. But this time we are prepared, we have worked on our insecurities and weak points and definitely have become more smarter and wiser to select the creature who is more suitable not only for us but for the nation. Now we are not blinded with the fake promises. Since the elections have already started, the efforts and slurping from the political parties are on higher ranges. The advertisements, the slogans, the rallies and everything is going on full force. But the point is, in all this fuss, what I really wonder is, are they really concerned about the people of our country. All the deals of promising people for the betterment and letting the other party members down is what we have been hearing for ages. We common people become the apple of their eye. We suddenly are the most important thing in their life and certainly their first priority. We get surrounded by signs of political parties, asked about our worries and if by natural circumstances we lose somebody we are offered minimum money as compensation. We are never gonna run out of debate about whom, why, who to vote. But is this the reason not to vote, is this the way our generation is going to help build our nation? Rather than sitting home and debating on the political issues, why not go out and vote as a responsible citizen. It’s lot easy to judge and blame but lot harder to put a step forward for the betterment. Enough with the silence and ignorance because vote is not just our right but it is also our power. If you don’t vote, someone else’s vote will count. Don’t choose because of the appearance or because you know the person, make yourself aware of the situations and choose someone wisely because your vote counts.

Consciousness : A good thing or is a Bad thing.

Every thing has its merits and demerits, but it totally depends on us how we tackle our flaws and make them our usb. Always listen to your Consciousness. Consciousness is something that comes handy when we are trying to do something we have never done before or when we lack the knowledge about it. So what we need to do to avoid our self insecurity peeking through us and leaving a negative impression outside.

Here are certain things you need to work on.

  • Embrace your flaws and insecurities
  • Make sure you gain as much knowledge as you can.
  • Personality is the major factor that impacts your first impression. Get cleaned up well and keep yourself as stiff and straight with proper professionalism as you can.
  • Know what you’re speaking of. If you don’t know something say that you don’t know it, rather than saying something that you will regret it.
  • Always keep your mind open to learn from your mistakes.
  • If you don’t have enough knowledge about the things you are doing make sure you tell the person to postpone it or explain them your concern rather than making a fool out of you.
    Speak in the language in which you are comfortable in.
  • In terms of activities make sure you practice it thoroughly before actually doing it.
  • Walk is very important when it comes to personality, how you walk is something people notice, if you are not comfortable in heels don’t walk in them because your knees give away the comfort of your heels. Like if you can walk in heels with straight legs than baby you completely slay it but if you aren’t comfortable in those heels your knees eventually bend at certain extent and give away your discomfort. Plus it hurts like hell.

So guys that’s it, remember those things and work on it. If you don’t do it well the first time always remember you’ve got the second time. Don’t repeat your mistakes but do embrace your flaws proudly and make them your strength.

GURUKUL – A Peace Learning

Is the term Gurukul same as the one portrayed in Mohabbatein, certainly its not. There are lots of things we don’t know that revolve within our reach and are very good source of peace.

Walking with lots of thought in mind I came across a beautiful girl dressed in saffron attire without any makeup on, just the kajal highlighting her bright soul, something in me made me stop and talk to her. She was with two of other girls, she politely came when I called her, talking to her I came to know she is Sadhavi. Sadhvi means Virtuous women. I asked her for her number in order to take a small interview but her friends weren’t comfortable with the thought of talking to strangers let alone giving them the number. But she somehow trusted and gave us the number which I am glad for. The next day, we personally went to meet her and talk to her. We talked to her about anything and everything and it was a pleasure knowing different valuable things from her. She took us in the akharas where she was staying in Kumbh Mela. There was a pooja ceremony going on in the akhara premises, they were prasing their guru with thali decorated with flowers and diya. She called her dad who also happen to be a follower of the akhara guru, to take us from the back entrance to where they were staying. She received us from the back entrance and lead us to a sofa, she made us feel comfortable and treated us politely. People were coming touching her feets, greeting her. While talking to her we came to know that she is a teacher in Gurukul branch of Varanasi. It was her mom’s wish for her to be a part of Gurukul. She joined it when she was in school, it was very difficult for her so she didn’t continued it further staying away from family, new environment. So she took her time and joined it again after a year. She always had a liking for Sanskrit and she thought no better way to learn Sanskrit then somewhere where the roots are religious. She completed her studies and than started teaching there. She took her peace in taking Sanyas, which means she is never gonna get married or have family of her own. She wants people, specially children to know the importance of Gurukul. To make people aware of it, where children are thought manners and discipline and patiences. There was some fire in her eyes that was screaming and wanting people to Know about the Gurukul system which will help bring peace and reduces violence in the society. In a gurukul, the students living together are considered as equals, irrespective of their social standings. They are also introduced to all kinds of technology but to a certain extent so that they don’t get addicted towards it. They are kept away from all the things that can make them selfish and that can disturb their mental peace. They teach patiences as well as all other curriculum activities. They are thought to do their own things. Kids there grow up to be a fine personality with roots attached to the grounds and knowledge that touches the sky.

So let me tell you’ll that there is a world out there that is completely health a totally a peace gainer.

The last of Kumbh a memorable experience!!

After Shahi Sanaan, we decided to know the stories of Naga Baba’s and visit some tourist places in Allahabad. We visited places like Allahabad Fort, Ulta killa, Akshayavat, Alopidevi mandir, Bade Hanuman Ji temple, Gangoli Shivala and many more.

While walking on the streets of Mela, we encountered a bunch of children who were offering tea and biscuits as free service for the people visiting the Kumbh. It’s rare we find children nowadays doing something out of the smart phone world. We visited and talked to many Baba’s like barfani baba, who had beautiful rudraksha hat on his head and was making tea 24 hours for all the people visiting.

There was rabadi ( sweet ) baba who used to make rabadi for the people visiting. But my personal favourite Baba was Rajenra Bharati, well because we got connected to him so well. It was his 4 Kumbh in Allahabad, and he was Naga from the year 1998. He was such a sweet and caring person. He made us stay at his tent for two days and literally made sure that we were comfortable and warm. Where we should serve him, he served us, it was such a heart touching moment for us.

We met Ganga, a russian female who was very fond of the rituals, visited every kumbh and was in saffron attire all the time.

There was also a small Naga Baba whose age was 13 years old, who was learning from his guru all the things of being a Baba. When we asked him questions he didn’t knew what to say. He was so innocent giving blessings to everyone.  We were done roaming and having good time in kumbh, it was time for us to leave the place, our heart was heavy and eyes were watery walking out of the gate. It was time for us to be back and our sweet bubble was burst. But like it is said, every good things come to an end.

The spirit of Shahi Sanaan

We were very excited to witness the craziness and fondness of Naga Baba’s towards first Shahi Sanaan. So we slept early before the day of Shahi Sanaan so we could stay awake whole night. We woke up in the afternoon, did our daily routine and wore warm clothes pack with hoddies and sweaters because we didn’t wanted to die in the cold and was all set to go. We reached around 7 in the Kumbh Mela and directly went to the Triveni Sangam ( where three Rivers meet, Ganga, Yamuna and mythical river Saraswati ).

The devotees were already crowded and were taking a dip in the water. It was great to see the enthusiasm among the people. Later we went to see the preparation done for Peshwai. Basically Peshwai is a form of rally where every akhara has something unique to go with. So there were horses, camel, trucks decorated with Dhols and Banjos. It’s something you just don’t want to miss out.

After that when we were again walking towards Triveni Sangam, we took a hault to drink tea because as the time was passing by it was getting cold and cold and specially near the river side, it’s just terrible. While we were having tea, there was a puppy who was trying to get into the blankets of people who were sleeping on sand and unconscious were kicking him. He was very small and we just couldn’t leave him like that, so my friend picked him up and the poor soul was shivering like hell. Literally shivering. Even if I am worried and concerned about the puppy I am shit scared of animals, it’s kinda phobia. Now what to do we didn’t had anything to fit and cover him with, lastly we took out camera cloth and wrapped him. We walked around for awhile sat near bonfires so that he would get some heat. I built up the courage to hold him because after a point the hands were getting numb due to being out and we needed to shot too and I just can’t let my friend suffer, it was difficult but once I got settle with the puppy it was different and beautiful feeling. So we walked and walked didn’t knew where to drop him because we can’t even take him and shot the Shahi sanaan. After hours we found a safe place for him which was way away from Triveni Sangam, there were akhara people and police officers near a born fire who assure us that they will take care of him. It was very sad feeling to leave him, specially for me because I had never touched a dog hell never been with him in a close proximity and this soul just had me. Anyway, we said our goodbyes to the puppy and Left for Shahi Sanaan till than it was already 4 we rushed but the pipa pull got closed for Naga Baba’s because they don’t like interruption during their time for which they wait for years to witness and they just want to be in their own enjoyment so they don’t like interruptions. We were disappointed that we couldn’t actually be their to shot but happy that we helped a soul.

We waited for them to return and that was definitely something great to watch. All the Naga sadhus were so happy after the dip in Ganga. They just enjoyed their heart out with flowers decorated all over them, dancing like their no tomorrow, it was the most joyful moment for them as well as us to be able to watch it live.
