Snail mail Project..

I was scrolling through my old posts on twitter when I saw a post where I have mentioned about pen-pals..

So , rethinking about it..

Is anyone intrested in writing snail mails.. as in e-mails to strangers ? No name.. no identity proof.. just  regular mails.. Make new friends ?

Anybody in? For snail e-mail project?

P.S : I get such random notions when I am Insomniac..

Stay Happy, Stay Blessed..

The blessing with sunrise is that it goes and it comes…

The trouble with sunrise is that it comes and it goes. And the gardens, when in a sombre mood, while filled with thorns, will be devoid of a single rose. I accept that clouds will hover sometimes and to give us false promise of rain. But, bubbles will form and bubbles will burst and bubbles will form again. Smilingly, I will say, silent will be my screams, cold will be my anger and empty will be my pain.

The one charm of the past is that it is the past. (by Oscar Wilde) But, the winds do not know this. Sometimes, the winds have come and gone centuries ago, but the leaves are still rustling today. A tiny part of ocean lives inside us. What are oceans, if not the tears of the earth? All the pain piled together at one place over time and time again. The pain of lost moments and lost dreams. The pain of the future that couldn’t be. What we are sad for is what we are. What we do to overcome the sadness is what we can be. All brave hearts are meant to be broken. A few braver hearts are meant to heal. All we need is a little will.

There is a reason why we can not carve a piece of our heart and keep it for safekeeping for a distant future. We are always in it with everything we have got. We can not catch a spark. It flickers and go. But, sometimes, it can bless us with a fire in our darkest times. Times that tell me, if I am the person I do not want to be or I am the person I imagined myself to be. Like most other things, perhaps, the truth lies somewhere in between.

Sometimes, I tend to sink under my own heavy heartbeats. When that happens, just tell me how we met, and I will find our happiness even in lonely streets. I want you to know, there was a place inside my heart that I had never visited before. The path, which led there, I never knew, existed. Until now.

Time and moments will rush by and we will remain strong together. WE. Me and Words. Words and Meaning. Meaning and Life. Life and You. Every time, we will trust each other, we will trust ourselves a little more. The path ahead is beautiful, colorful and also spotted with troubled rocks. Kiss them. They will turn into fragrant sunflowers. They will wait for the morning.Because, the blessing with sunrise is that it goes and it comes.

What if I don’t wake up tomorrow ?

For more than a month now , I have been sleeping with a hope of not getting up the next day..

and then today morning, When I felt really alone.. I thought to myself.. Is this ME ?

I have been someone who fought and did not wish for a easier way-out ever.. So, today instead of hoping that I don’t get up ..I thought of what if I really don’t wake up tomorrow ?

What will happen to the dreams I yet have to full-fill.. dreams of painting walls around the world, or becoming a home-chef..

What will happen to the unfinished stories in my head and the blank pages of my diary ?

What will happen to my hard-earned CA Degree ?

What about the people I forgot to confess my love to or the chances I never took ?

What about the places I am yet to see and the books I have never read ?

What about the life I wanted to cherish and the home that I wanted to build.. the wishes yet to be full-filled and the ones that I still have to make ?

Its’s not about the suffering of my family or the emptiness in the life of the Man I love.. The vacuum in the life of people who love me… It’s about Me !

Marital Rape.. Disgusting !

Marital Rape! Sensitive topic but the one that needs more discussion! Rape itself is a soul shattering tragedy that can strike any woman and when it happens within the confines of marriage and by your partner – it is not only soul shattering but is a blow to women’s self-respect and dignity. Men by nature are physically strong and when they showcase their strength by forced sex – then it’s a rape within the marital life.

While researching on the topic I came across lots of articles and printed material on the topic but struck me the most was the quote of the novelist Nilanjana Roy “all things we’ve been fighting for,” but said the government does not yet dare to tackle marital rape because it “strikes at the heart of the arranged marriage system. Aha! So here is the reason why marital rape is such a sensitive issue! Because it strikes at the traditional arranged marriage system but then isn’t arranged marriage another form of patriarchy – to have control over the newly married couple. However, this is a myth! It is not that arranged marriages means that your husband will be your rapist, here is the case where the man and woman chose each other and the woman now is being subjected to marital rape every night.

Over the years numerous countries have accepted rape within the marriage as a punishable crime barring the few countries where it is still an accepted norm to force oneself on one’s wife in the name of husbandly rights! If domestic violence is attacks on women’s self-respect, marital rape kills her soul and destroys her faith in the sanctity of marriage.

According to the facts and figures almost every second woman in the country is facing serious issues in her married life – be it domestic violence or sexual violence or Marital Rape as we know it. Husbands in all these cases have one thing in common and that is they are from patriarchal school of thought considering their wives as their properties and slaves. When a man considers his wife as a slave he treats her shabbily, abusers her physically, mentally and torture her with his hard-hitting words.

Unfortunately, India does not recognise sex within marriage sorry forced sex within marriage as RAPE! Why because it is sex within marriage is a husbandly right and WOMEN HAVE NO RIGHT to refuse her husband. In fact it is considered as mental cruelty against husband if a wife refuses her husband to have sex! Can you beat the irony here? Mental Cruelty against husband!? And what about the physical and sexual cruelty that man enforces on his woman? There is no account for that and absolutely no answer as well!

26 years..26 Life Lessons..

I don’t intend being repetitive.. I know I have done Quarter Life Lessons previously.. but something  about my birthday,that is tomorrow, makes me wanna do this post..

  1. Laughing, crying, joy and anger… All are vital.  All make us human. Emote – Express – BE !
  2. Life is short and time is precious. I have lost someone who was my age and very dear to me.. He taught me this.. Life is short..if there is something u wanna do.. do it now !
  3. Bad things happen to good people..
  4. Skip the Bull-shit and get real. Real is what makes you survive.. nothing else !
  5. Learn to say “No” . It doesn’t make you negative , it makes you respect yourself.
  6. Never give up hope. Remember, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies.
  7. Time heals all wounds… regardless of how you feel right now.
  8. Choose wisely when you give people second chances – People don’t make the second mistake twice.. the second time it’s a choice !
  9. Learn to ask for help when you need it. Furthermore, asking for help does not make you weak.
  10.  Always write a thank you note. Always. Be it in a restaurant or anywhere else – I’ve been doing it since ever.. it makes you and others happy 🙂
  11. People are constantly telling you who they are, you just have to listen.
  12. Most of the time what you are looking for is right in front of you.
  13. Marry your best friend (Gender as per your preference)
  14. Take lots of pictures.  Someday you’ll be really glad you did.
  15. If you never act, you will never know for sure. You will live with a ‘what if’ and that sucks !!
  16. Love has nothing to do with looks, but everything to do with time, trust, and interest.
  17. Being an adult can be fun when you are acting like a child.
  18. The answer will always be no if you don’t ask. You will always lose if you don’t try.
  19. People are their honest-most when they are angry, frustrated and high !
  20. First impressions are completely worthless 50% of the time.
  21. Find something you are really, really good at and keep those skills sharp. You never know when you may need it.
  22. The only opinions that matter in life are from the people who matter to you. Screw everyone else.
  23. Never apologize for making a decision you stand by whole-heartedly.
  24. Cry. It is completely OK to cry.
  25. Let go of what doesn’t want to stay..If it is meant for you, it’ll come around..
  26. Nothings lasts forever.. not the good and not even the bad.. This too  shall pass..
