The life it was, the life it is.

Standard

Finally, here I return with a blog post. I guess its been ten months since I posted anything new. The blog felt neglected, I know that, the reader’s felt neglected, again I know that, my life felt neglected, I know that, but look at the brighter side of it. Today, I feel extremely satisfied in every sense. I guess things take time to settle down and  when nothing works the way you expected, then you should start reading the “omens”, the hidden “signs”, the “symbols” (the same way the protagonist of the novel Alchemist does). You fall, you jump, you sneak, you slither but finally you reach your goal. I remember the harrowing emptiness I felt just a year back. That emptiness of not going to a college, that emptiness of struggling to win over some day, that emptiness of being alone and facing the world. But today life feels complete. Friends and family are the only ones who will stand by your side. And of course you will find the ominous presence of Almighty all way long. He kept my faith intact, to reach out and be something and not to be looked upon as a mere living entity. He helped me adapt to the intricacies of relationships and kept me focused on my goals in the weakest time.

Life  has come to a full circle today. And what have I learned from such experiences ?It actually does not matter what do you have in life but what matters is whom do you have around you . And I guess I have got the best of the two world’s. 🙂

Music for your soul

Standard

Music is the divine contemplation of the soul. It is the longing of the heart , a string which if hit at the right note makes the world look beautiful. It brings out the heart felt sorrow, elates the soul and above all shows the way to be in touch with the almighty residing within you when life brings sheer misery and loneliness.
Well this post is dedicated to all the music lovers for music knows no boundaries of race and religion. Interestingly one of my personal favorite is meticulously appreciated in this post. 😀

VOLARE (Italian for the infinitive form of the verb “to fly”)!!! Well I don’t know how many of you have heard this song, but it is a peppy Italian number by the Gipsy Kings. Frankly speaking, I don’t even know the exact wordings of the song, but if you play the video (scroll down) you will find a picturesque background in black and white with young girls dancing to the foot tapping number and to add on the pulse and groove to the song the melodiously played guitar makes you also feel like jumping on the dance floor and getting into the mood for some salsa. 😀
I first heard this song at one of the SDIPA show and it left me thoroughly mesmerized.
So if you are a music lover or wannabe musician, then just go ahead and listen to this song and surely it is going to leave you asking for more. 😀

Feeling mesmerized then go for the lyrics :

Original version

Pienso que un sueno parecido
No valvera mas
Y me pintaba las manos y la cara de azul
Y d’improviso el viento rapido me llevo
Y me hizo volar en el cielo infinito

Volare oh oh
Cantare oh oh oh oh
Nel blu dipinto di blu
felice di stare lassu

Mas alto que el sol

Mienstras el mundo se aleja despacio

Despacio de mi Una musicadulce tocada

Pienso que un sueno parecido
No valvera mas
Y me pintaba las manos y la cara de azul
Y d’improviso el viento rapido me llevo
Y me hizo volar en el cielo infinito

English version

sometimes the world is a valley
of heartaches and tears
and in the hustle and bustle of sunshine appears
but you and i have a love always there to remind us
there is a way we can leave all
the shadows behind us

volare oho cantare ohohoho
let’s fly way up to the clouds
away from the noisening crowds
we can sing in the glow of a star that i know
all we lovers enjoy peace of mind
let us leave in confusion and all dissilusion behind
just like birds on a wire and the
rainbow together we’llfind

volare oho cantare ohohoho
no wonder my happy heart sing
your love has given me wings
nel blu di pinto di blu
felice distare lassu
no wonder my happy heart sing
your love has given me wings

It’s happiness all the way

Standard

What if one day you turn into a clown? A clown who has so much to say, so much to tell about life. But with his one gleeful smile life seems to be a cakewalk. But ask him whether life has been so easy for him? Pat comes the reply,”No”. You will wonder then why he smiles and always cheer up people. Let me tell you the answer. Happiness is the state of your mind. When you are happy, you love to see beautiful things around you. Your positive aura motivates others and makes them also feel happy.

But I always wonder then why do people forget to smile in difficult times? Maybe because it’s human temperament or maybe it’s because we are never satisfied with what we have and always nag for things which others have. Honestly speaking , I really idolise a few people I know who have gone through the twists and turns of life but they still extracted a smiley moment from such experience and emerged victorious.

I believe that happiness is a lost art. It is a skill which each one of us possesses but the only difference is that we all have got so much involved in this rat race that we have unlearnt this art.

So go ahead and spread a smile each time you feel like and soon when each smile turns into a laugh see how life reveals the beautiful part of it. And always remember that each day you turn that smile into a gloomy straight line you only pave the way for the monster to reside by your side. So what are you waiting for…go and earn some browny points and let’s see who wins in this fast track race of being happy.

P.S. Winners get the key to a happy joyful life. 😀

It’s Mother’s Day!

Standard

“You always stood by my side, cradled me when I was a child. And now after so many years you are still there for me, loving me, understanding me, oh mother I give a bow to thee”

She is an unrealistic yet a Goddess image. She blooms when her flower’s are budding; she saddens when her young one’s are crying. Yet she ensures that her children get what they want even if she has to sacrifice her own wants. She actually acts as a mirror of life, reflecting the light of life into the gloomy dreams and wipes off the tear’s when life leaves you in sheer strangeness and misery. Her love knows no prejudice, yet one day when you leave her to an old age home she greets you with the same affection and smile. Forgiveness, kindness and benevolence are her inherited traits but in this world of monsters the Goddess is feeling frail.

So let us all come together on this Mother’s Day and pay homage to all her countless sacrifices, her affectionate love, her kindness for we must not forget that what we are today is all because of her.

So go grab some wonderful gift for the lovely lady or nonetheless even spending time with her will make her feel special as there is no other better gift for the love of life then love itself.
