I DON’T LIKE…

I don’t like when my Subway is not toasted even when I tell them to “toast it’ a quarter of a million times.
I don’t like that it’s so hot. in July. Urgh !!
I don’t like people telling me to ‘Relax’ or even worse ‘Chill’. I just can’t stand it.
I don’t like people typing ‘LyK ThEeS’. Lyk.. I Mean Like Really ?
I don’t like people who are all cynical about everything. Bloody rational thinkers.
I don’t like how I have bad luck with everything right now.
I don’t like the smell of my hair right now. or for that matter, I don’t like my hair now.
I don’t like how people act like they’re talking about general stuff, but they’re actually talking about you and when you’re open enough to ask them if it’s you they act all hoity-toity and reply in the most patronizing voice imaginable, ‘Don’t over-analyze things’. No. I’m just saying. You know? Generally.
I don’t like stupid Facebook spam and candy crush requests.
I don’t like sexist people. Those ‘women in the kitchen’ types. ‘Make me a sandwich’ jokes will not be appreciated or entertained.
I don’t like that I don’t to ride a bike.
I don’t like how I don’t write happy stuff all that much anymore.
I don’t like how Flipkart has made me stop going to bookstores. It was the only kind of shopping I actually liked.
I don’t like eating at home. I want spaghetti. Or lasagne. Arrabiatta Pasta.
I don’t like people giving me a hard time for being a vegetarian.
I don’t like how no one else has heard Bridge Over Troubled Waters.
I don’t like Waiting for this phase to get over. Wait. That would be an understatement.
I don’t like people running for cover every time there’s a problem and saying things like ‘You’ve done it too’. It makes me question a lot of things, worsens my bad moods and makes me write like this.
I don’t like having a very few people to talk to and then not being able to talk to them.
I don’t like when I rely on others to love me and then them falling out of love with Me. I used to be the ‘ Main apni favourite hun’ girl. Shucks !
P.S. This isn’t directed towards anyone specific. Please don’t over analyze and think that it is. It’s really, really not. Okay?

It’s rambling of my head..

Pack your bags and leave !!

I am not hinting at any upcoming vacation plan of mine nor am I pushing my brain to make a plan for one.

Weekend usually gives a lot of time to think over matters which you have been pushing under the carpet over the past week or may some more time than that. And I am not talking about the chores to be done. I mean matters that are intangible in presence but very tangible in effect.  Matters of heart, so to say. (Weekend does that to me..over-thinker me).. And when there is some time at hand, mind does wander off. To far off places. To prohibited areas. To long forgotten landscapes.

On this unusually lazy weekend I decided to chuck everything and just BE ! I watched TV, some movies, some sitcoms and read a book. Also lied on the sofa just listening to the music. And that’s when my mind also wandered (like it never does otherwise!! Huh!). A trip down memory lane happened and you never come out of it chirpy, do you?

I realized there is so much clutter or baggage that we carry, some of it even unintentionally. We know we have to get rid of the aching memories or avoid falling in the same pit, but it takes time and may be somewhere we don’t want to do it. And honestly, if we take it all seriously, it is lethal. So why bear it in the first place or for so long?

Emotional-Baggage1

Acknowledging that i have been holding on to things for way too long, I resolved its time. It’s time to let it all leave my system for good. So why not tell that agonizing pain or that scar from a healed wound…Pack your bags and leave!!!

Yes, it is only that easy and that much difficult. We can either let it simmer inside us every single moment or let it out of our system once and for all.

And these are what I am talking about:

  • That love story gone awry
  • That friend who turned his back when you needed him/her the most
  • The decision that took you to a wrong direction in your career/personal life
  • The unfulfilled romance/ unrequited love
  • The hurt you have been nursing long after that person has gone
  • The promise that was never kept
  • The expectation that never got met
  • The tears that have now dried up but potent enough to give you a sleepless night
  • The relations that were once close and now are a sorry distant sight
  • Those people in your everyday life who do not deserve any bandwidth from you but end up getting the maximum attention

This doesn’t sound very simple but I am sure this is how you get rid of something that refuses to leave on its own. You have to show it the right door to leave and close that door behind it, forever.

So whenever you find yourself fighting with one such monster in your head, look in its eye confidently and tell him, yes you know that by now, ‘pack your bags and leave!’  🙂

Oh well, as I was busy saying goodbyes to some such monsters, I realized it was time to bring some nice positive and tangible change. Hence the new look of this blog. Tell me what you think of it.

Lots of Love and Happiness !!

Stay Blessed 🙂

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!

Are you supporting Salman Khan ? Read this

This post is not written by me. I came across this on “Inspiring young India” on facebook. It was worth sharing..

——————————————————————————————————————————

Sharing a brilliant post by Mr.Charudutt Acharya, a Hit and Run ‘survivor’

If There is a HIT and there is a RUN. A hit can happen due to various reasons including elevated levels of alcohol in the blood. But a run happens when there are elevated levels of inhumanity and arrogance in the blood. A run happens when there is confidence in a corrupt system to back you up. A run happens when you know that money and ‘Bhai power’ can ‘settle’ things.
Salman Khan ran for 13 years. He first ran from the accident site and then did all money and power could do to keep himself running.
As such, driving drunk is equivalent to giving a loaded AK47 in the hands of a chimpanzee in a crowded street. It’s a no brainer @ don’t drink and drive. But it’s a token take away from this case.
This case is really not about drunken driving. It’s about shameless, cowardly running. A macho star running from the ghosts of victims of a ‘single –screen’ class that subsidizes his stardom, and a shit scared, spineless film industry running to absurdly defend the star who subsidizes their 100 crore clubs.
So each one of you who is expressing rage over this verdict and standing in solidarity and support for Salman Khan, picture this.
You were at American Bakery buying jelly pastries for your near and dear ones at home. You step out and boom! A drunk Salman Khan knocks you down. Your one leg is a smashed jelly pastry now. He gets out, looks at you, sits in his car and f*cks off.
For 13 years you go through operations, implant failures, infections. You are in debt. You wake up in cold sweat often. You cry when your kids want to play football with you. And you keep going to court for hearings where all the time the large hearted human being Khan says he was not at the wheels. He does not even recognize you. Maybe he even smiles and waves at you thinking you are his fan.
Then this judgement comes. Salman gets five years. Out of which one year gets pardoned for good behaviour. And in the remaining four years, he gets several privileged and entirely illegal paroles to attend parties and chill out like his good pal ‘innocent –gun lover ‘Sanjay Dutt gets. Or Jessica Lal’s baby faced murderer Manu Sharma gets.
2019. Salman is out in four years, back into the lap of luxuries and stardom. Maybe starring in his own bio-pic.
But YOU continue sit in the ‘handicap’ seat of a bus like you have been doing for the last 18 years. You sit in the corridors of hospital waiting for the doctor to tell you that finally your bone is united. You sit at dance parties. You sit on the beach. You SIT a lot. You sit your entire life out.
So go figure.”

P.S : He is a star. He has done lot of charity. All said and done, we shouldn’t deny that yes ! he is the person behind the case and the wheels which changed some-one’s life. We can’t deny that had this been any normal ‘aam aadmi’ the sentence wouldn’t have been suspended. Law should be same for all.

What’s your say ?

 

P.P.S : This is a personal opinion and no offence to anybody.

A Man (Almost Boy) I know :) ……… With Love (Lots of it)

Heard a bike roar in the distance,

And just thought about a man I know,

Loves to just go with the flow …

Let me tell you about this man I know,

He is smart, talented and very funny,

He has the heart of a little boy ,

Oh!! And he loves Butter Chicken..

About this man I know ,

There is just ONE like him and not a breed,

You can talk computers and movies and his love for Naruto,

But if it is interesting it has to be an R.D350’s/Duke’s Speed

This man I know ,

He has the drinking and smoking vice,

but doesn’t smoke pot on the road..

He doesn’t like veggies at all,

And somehow 1 shawarma is never suffice .

Let me tell you about this man I know,

The whole world said something and judged him,

He took it like a pinch of salt ,

Went got himself a trim.

Let me tell you about this man I know,

He will torture your living soul,

He will crack crazy p.j’s and weird jokes,

That will make you laugh and roll.

Let me tell you about this man I know,

Who is famous for his loose pants ,

Who has this special ability

to listen to anyones stupid rants .

Let me tell you about this man I know

Who is known as the dude,

If u really want to entice him

Take him for some drink and food (non-veg, preferably).

Let me tell you about this man I know,

He came to my life just as anyone would ,

But believe me when I say this

Through thick and thin he STOOD……

I am really proud I know this man

And I am sure, if you know him, you do too..

and I cried (of happiness) the day I said I love you

and he said I love you too…
