Your Wall or Mine?

Hi Everybody!

I came across this great article in Metroplus, supplement of 'The Hindu', my favourite Indian newspaper and felt like sharing it with you all. It is about the latest trend -'social networking' and the pros and cons of it. I found it to be very informative and fun to read, with occasional doses of humour. Check it out!

The dilemma of an individual when he finds that the latest ‘status' symbol in life is a wall.
The conversation between the two characters, Before Computers (BC) and After Digital (AD), continues…
BC: I always thought these newfangled sites were designed to make us lazy. But…
AD: Really? I get so much done on Facebook — even as I check my friends out, I handle training programmes.
BC: E-learning?
AD: No, KOC.
BC: K-12 Online Certification?
AD: No, Kingdoms of Camelot.
BC: What's that?
AD: You don't know? It's a craze on Facebook. It's about building cities, raising armies, training them and defending your city from outside attacks.
BC: I'm just too busy defending my wall.
AD: Why, what happened?

All About Love: Part 4

                                                        A MAGICAL WORLD
Over mountains and across seas,
overtaking busy bees
I fly all over the world
lost in the love contained in your words...

One glance of yours
can send me dreaming for hours...

All About Love: Part 3

I feel lost 
I'm all alone in this big bad world...

Where has all the love gone?
It seems to have disappeared without a trace
The fire has perished 
and only the ashes remain...

There is none to look upon,
for the support I need
Somewhere down the line,
a gaping hole has formed
in my life..

Where has all the love gone?

All About Love: Part 2

You and I together
look around in wonder
at what nature has to offer

Every thing around seems so wonderful
The stars seem brighter
sand seems softer and
people seem nicer

Each moment seems to stretch on until eternity,
as we stare into one anothers eyes
We sit beside each other,
not saying a word,
yet understanding each other perfectly..

Life's little pleasures,
give us immense joy
and sorrows are blown away
as we support each other

Wish we could be like this FOREVER....

All About Love: Part 1

The word 'love' has different connotations. 
It exists in different forms- parental love, romantic love, love between friends; all love that arises out of blood ties, etc  
No matter what form it is received in, love has immense power. 
It helps you cheer up; uplifts your mood and is a feel good factor.
Metamorphically speaking, love has the power to move mountains.
Love can also be a source of comfort when you're in the dumps.
It can motivate you when the situation demands.
It can provide solace when you feel all is lost.
Receiving love makes you feel 'wanted' and you will feel the need to return the love.
Selfless love can touch lives
Love strikes a chord in your life..
Love brightens up your life.
Summing it all up- LOVE ROCKS! :)

Love Makes The World Go Round

February is the month of Love. I have something special lined up for this month.
A new series- 'All about Love' begins today. The posts in this series are related to a single topic: LOVE 
" Love makes the world go round " is a phrase I totally believe in. 
My life has been enriched by love: from my parents, relatives, friends and well wishers.

Love makes the journey of life worthwhile...
Cheers!  :)

The Quest for Size Zero

Note: This post is exclusively for girls.

Fact: In reality, size zero does not exist! 
I'm not going into the details now. However, for some info, click here .

Many of us dream of having the perfect hour-glass figure. We try to do all kinds of things in order to fulfill that desire. But in vain.

In today's materialistic world, looks do matter and there's no denying that!

Everyone of us has an innate desire to look good and be admired. Apart from that there are these glossy magazines and other media that depict waif like models wearing gorgeous clothes.
As a result, our desire increases manifold. But as we are just ordinary people, the perfect body seems to be out of reach for us.

So what do we do?
We go on crazy diets, starve ourselves and stay away from yummy food. JUST because we want to fit into clothes that are four sizes too small ! If at our current overweight size, we somehow fit into such clothes, then unsightly bulges will pop out. This will truly mar the image of perfection.

The Concept of 'Me' Time

Work has consumed all the time in my life. I've been busy, but surprisingly I've kind of enjoyed it. Whatever leisure time I get has been translated into sleeping time because at the end of the day I'm exhausted and can't bring myself to do anything else.
But I really miss 'me' time. I personally feel that 'me' time is something everyone should have daily for atleast 15 to 30 minutes. If that's not possible, you can translate a weekend/ holiday into a 'me' day. It's pure bliss, I tell you! 'Me' time is a concept I vouch for. 

But what is it?

'Me' time can include any activity that makes you happy- be it a hobby, idleness, putting thoughts on paper, being pampered (or pampering oneself), etc. The focus should be on personal fulfillment or pleasure. Your thoughts and feelings should hold centre stage. ( it is okay to be selfish once in a while)You will be lost from this world and all your worries will be left behind. The point is that you should have a good time, feel peaceful and emerge refreshed at the end of  'me' time. It will lead to an increase in your productivity and happiness levels.
