Its amazing how a letter can change the entire meaning of a word, like mate or made, cart or card. I am not going to talk about English word today and not on any word jumble game but on a serious topic in a different language. Lets talk about 2 words in Hindi “Vivah” (meaning marriage) and “Virah” (meaning separation) as you can see the only difference between them is a “V” and a “R”, but meanings are poles apart. I always thought can the two emotions cannot come together and could not imagine a scenario together for the same person. But I came across this song:

I know people may argue what is happening in this song and how the 2 person depicted in song behaved. I would not go into analysis of what is happening between them but on the theme of song. How a marriage has changed everything and how separation can make a perfectly fine person a completely different person.

The key take away for me from this song still remains what if the person you trust and love betrays you can he/she go to a limit that he/she can become mad or loose his/her identity completely? This song is an evidence of what a betrayal can do, such is the power of love and such is the strength of this emotion that you can loose yourself (burn yourself to ashes) or build yourself (from ashes). This brings me to my second point.

Love does not fear anything, neither the tradition nor any person in this world. If you start fearing in love then to me that’s not called love. Love is such a beautiful thing that scope of any other emotion to occupy your mind cannot coexist. Love is such a special feeling that no other emotion can occupy your mind, you don’t feel any other emotion for the other person. The trouble in today’s world is people tend to believe in other person’s word not the people whom they were with. What this concludes is you never trust the person you were with and in that case you have no right to call your love a true love.

Last but not the least love is not always about being together and achieving your loved ones, sometimes the best love stories (Romeo Juliet, Heer Ranjha etc)  are the ones where the loved ones were never together no matter what, be it world, be it tradition, be it life itself. However those love stories are never great and worth a mention where trust, faith or dedication is missing. Love may lead to “Vivah” or Virah” but that is only worth a story when you have trust in your loved ones, you have faith in others intention, you can question anything  but never question the dedication and if  any of above is missing, its best to close that chapter of life and remember the sweet memories and build yourself because as a wise person said to me “Life is about achieving bigger purpose”. My only question to that wise person is what if you have achieved everything is life materialistically, where should the person go then should he/ she loose his/her existence then?


Let me know what you feel do drop in your comments.

Moments devine

Dear all

After my appeal to PM it seems PM again acted in silent manner, but with petrol price reduced marginally it hardly makes a difference. So my only appeal to my readers is if you cant find happiness in real world than create a world around you that can keep you happy. What I say might not be possible all the time, its tough many times and I do understand. Had a talk with Nadia few days back and she is still in a setback. The only thing she said was Pallav its better to make every moment the moment of your life rather than waiting for time of your life. She then told few more things, which really moved me and made me write this blog. So here is another Pal story for you all.

It was an evening in November when Pal came frustrated from office he was annoyed and he knew Nadia would be at room and would wait for her, as it was a Saturday night and on Saturday night they use to forget all tensions and go out have a nice time with a good dinner and a nice bike ride. But this was not happening this Saturday, Nadia was a bit worried and kept enquiring what is the matter? To which Pal said I need to go to Cochin to meet dealers and resolve a burning issue in car and would not be here for next 3 days and my flight is tonight. Nadia knew as Pal is not in a good mood it would not be wise to talk much so she did not bothered him and helped Pal packing his stuff while packing she got the chance to see Pal’s ticket and flight details. She quickly packed Pal’s stuff and said she would now go to her room and meet him at airport to see him off. To which Pal did not bothered to respond. Nadia rushed to room and immediately booked a ticket in same flight and rushed in to pack her stuff. The only thing Nadia knew was that if Pal goes in same mood he would definitely not do any good to himself as well as to his work. So she packed her stuff and dropped a leave request in office and rushed to airport. Mind you last time when Pal travelled in such situations he made a terrible mess of situation and he was almost on the verge of demotion. So this time Nadia thought to be around Pal and not to let him make any silly mistake which could cost him job. So she stood by Pal and took this step.

When Pal reached the airport he was surprised to see Nadia with luggage, he asked whats the matter? Where are you going? To which Nadia replied, with you… won’t let you make same mistake as you made last time.

They landed in Cochin around late night, Pal had booked a taxi and it took them to hotel, Nadia was half asleep and she didn’t knew where they were heading and by the time she reached hotel she was asleep, she could not recollect much of what happened in between. It was 6:00 in the morning when she got a call (Calling… Ulta LAP) she was surprised that why he called so early in the morning, she got a bit tensed. She picked the call and in half asleep mode and lazy voice but with lots of worry said “ Hello Pal, something wrong?”

Pal: Please open the door, I am outside.
Nadia: So early..ookkkiie okkie just give me a sec.

She rushed to door and opened it, she was surprised to see, what he saw outside the door. Pal was in waiter’s dress with a big bouquet in hand and with morning breakfast. Nadia completely in the state of shock and having no clue of what is going on said (What the hell is this Pal?)

Pal: Get ready madam we have lots of work to do and please do open the window curtain else you will miss the moment, which off course i would not let you do. When Nadia open the curtain she was even more amazed to see sand, sea, and horizon half dark and half pink. Pal said madam if you can get ready soon we have a morning walk in the schedule. Nadia completely clueless and amazed by the surprise could not respond, she just followed the instruction like a robot.

They made it to the beach in the morning and it was quiet cold but they walked bare feet leaving their mark on the sand towards the water, the morning waves and the rising sun with nice cool breeze just changed the state of mind in which Nadia was, she was still wondering is she dreaming or is it real. She pinched pal to which pal said “ Dear you are in real world I am right in front of you.”

Nadia: So when does your work start?
Pal: Well Its going on and it will go on don’t worry for it, just give your hand in my hand and walk with me for this moment keep all the worries aside I don’t need anything else right now I just need you this place, this moment and this weather. They kept walking along the beech for another hour talking about the beauty of place and how they had good times in the past and how they use to see each other in office. They came back to room had a nice breakfast and then Pal said “ OMG, I forgot I need to rush to another place now, would you come along with me, what will you do here sitting?”

Nadia: Is it official work, what will I do? More so I will get even more bored!

Pal: Dont worry honey, you will not get bored thats my promise, just trust me.

So they left the hotel and went to another end of city and they ended up at some place which was written in malyalam, honestly Nadia had no clue of what it was but it definitely look exotic and she was not sure whether it was a dealer center or some suppliers workplace or some auditor’s office. By the time they entered the cabin things were pretty much clear to Nadia that it was not an office of any of the above infact it was a traditional massage centre where they give you body treatments with various oils. Nadia’s eye went large and by now she knew that it was not official trip, it was Pal’s way of doing thing. It was exactly the way Nadia described an ideal day to Pal few days back. She was so happy and her eyes lit up. So for next 3 hrs they were at this place and by the time they came back and sat in car, Nadia found a gift box for her. She knew the day is going to be full of surprises but this much… she didn’t expected it. She opened the box in a hurry just like a 5 yr old kid opening his birthday presents. She was surprised to see reddish gown with a pearl set in the gift box. Pal was silently looking at Nadia and was smiling at the looks that Nadia made after opening the present.

Nadia by now got angry, trust me guys, gals have every reason to get angry no matter how good you do to them, they can get angry over anything. So when they get angry they ask the most silly question and Nadia did exactly the same, Pal, why didn’t you tell me that you were upto this? Couldnt you tell me that you were up for a surprise trip which resembles my dream?”

So as I said gals ask silly question now if a guy tells that he is planning a surprise trip for her on her face then whats the element of surprise in that trip!! To which Pal said in the most polite manner “ Honey I always wanted to tell you many things but I don’t have the courage to tell, just accept this as one of my weakness or my bad habit. Nadia hugged Pal and said I love this bad habit. Nadia knew by this time what was coming next, but if guessing was so simple then it would not have been surprise. According to Nadia’s script they should be heading for lunch by now. So it was but that didn’t happen they were heading towards backwater’s and they were into a boat, enjoying the sun, the trees and the greenry around all of sudden Nadia saw a second boat coming and she thought another couple was in the boat, but when the boat came closer to their it had a nice lunch table and Pal escorted her to the boat. They had a nice lunch and after the lunch they were near the coast, they walk through the walk way and ended up on a wooden house Nadia still wondering what was coming next, to her surprise the wooden house was a place from where you can see beautiful birds and elephants, the squirrels use to come around and you could see baby elephants doing all sorts of tricks. They took lots of photographs and after couple of hours, they then decided to make a move, Nadia knew that the evening would be even more exotic than the morning but she expected it on hill station, and she asked Pal, I know we would be heading to a hill station but how? Pal said just see… The Malabar coast as exotic and as beautiful had equally good hills, so they went in car and they ended up on a road, from there Pal took Nadia by hand and said we need to reach the hill top. Nadia said are you crazy, its so high how can we? Pal again in the most polite tone: Dont worry dear I am around, just relax. The walk was not easy by the half way mark Nadia gave up and Pal knew that she would not make it up to the top, so he said hold this scarf and let me pull you up, just walk behind me holding this scarf. She walked a bit more but gave up few 100 mts before the apex, Pal then lifted Nadia and made his way forward, the clouds and the wind on the hill top with sea and the sun set, was an exotic view. There is noting that could describe that moment. She asked Pal: Dear tell me one thing, when did you plan all this?

Pal: The day you told me about your dream day.
Nadia: How did you know that I would come along with you on this trip?
Pal: Dear you said last time when such situation arise and i screwed up you said dear no matter what ever happens I would be there next time with you to keep you calm. So I knew it if I act the same way you will come along with me thinking that you will give me a surprise so I kept the return gift as this trip.
Nadia: You really are crazy Pal.
Pal: Still you like this crazy person…!!

It was sunset and both of them smiled looking at each other and hugged each other. They came down and they made their way back to hotel. By the time she reached back to hotel she saw another gift on the bed, Nadia had tears in her eyes, Pal asked guess whats it? Nadia said this was not in my script Pal, my day ended with sunset now whats it?? Pal said go see it. Nadia opened it to find herself an I-phone 4 in it. She went crazy and shouted at Pal, Pal what was the use to buy this?? You have gone mad and if you keep spending like this you would go bankrupt soon.

Pal said: Dear Do you remember the master card advert? For me nothing is more valuable and priceless than your smile and your childish look and for this scolding that you make after getting such gift I can go bankrupt a million times, as long as you are earning 😉 (Smart answer by Pal, I must say… no doubt he was smart )

Nadia was so happy that she could not resist laughing aloud and hugging Pal. Pal said I am hungry lets go for dinner now. Nadia said Pal no more surprises please else I would die in shock, you already have given me alot of surprises today. Pal smiled and said get ready we meet in 10 mins and please wear the gown that I got for you would love to see you in that dress. After 10 mins Pal could not believe his eyes Nadia was looking beautiful and he could not believe his eyes. He extended his hand and asked may I have the opportunity to escort the princess please. They went down and everyone crossing path with Pal and Nadia were staring at the pair. Nadia knew that the couples looking at them were feeling jealous, she could feel how lucky she is!! But to her surprise Pal escorted her to beach after some distance she could see a tent, The dinner was on beech side and a candle light dinner. Pal made the lady sit first held her hand and said Nadia you are the best gift life has given to me, Please be there with me always never leave me ever. By then Nadia busted in tears and said Pal enough is enough no more surprises else I would die here. I am there with you always and ever. I am not going anywhere.

Next few days were spent in Periyar national park and at Munnar. Nadia always cherished this trip not because it was full of surprises but because Pal made those moment special in every possible way. She cherished the way how Pal knew to make life larger in every sense.

I am surprised to see a guy who was so shy and never knew how to behave in front of gals behaving so maturely, its rightly said MAGIC OF LOVE CAN CHANGE ANY MAN.

Salute to NADIA and PAL and their true love….and a humble request to all please don’t waste time in waiting for special moment to come make every moment the time of your life.

Hope you liked it do give your response….

Hello all,

It seems the crowd got blown away from the last post, now to cheer things up here I am with another Pal story. Life in college is so different from what we were in school. Last time when I wrote, Pal saw a terrible dream, he fell for a gal but the dream got shattered. But as we are engineers, we learn from our mistake, we revisit the same things again and again to see any sign of improvement. Now why am I talking like this here? Simple this rule holds for an engineering guy who keeps looking same gals everyday in college and as far as I know, on first day they say she looks ugly, after couple of weeks, the same guy says she is not that bad buddy, and after couple of months the same gal looks as angel to the same guy, and in the end guy falling in for the gal. Hard fact isn’t it. But not the same with pal, as I told you pal fell for Somu, and after all tiring efforts put in by pal, he was able to talk to Somu. The talk from classroom went on to mobile, and what else could be better then SMS. The good thing for pal was that msging was free and you don’t need to pay anything for local msgs. I know most of you would be wondering am I serious. Yes I am do I look funny in saying all this. So msging is like itching, it’s a temptation which you can’t just resist, be it classroom or be it hostel. Now here is an excerpt some of the msgs:

 hey whats up? The lecture is too boring.

 Reply: I am feeling damn sleepy. What did you have in breakfast?

Nothing much the breakfast was crap, can you eat jam with dosa!

Reply: Same here.

Now do you expect what will come next in the msg??

Aur batao??

At this point I feel really annoyed, but that’s how it goes. The chit chat went on and on and the Thursday was about to end. Pal decided to watch a horror movie and was soon joined by his roommates and thus all gathered in a room it was made dark and computer screen was the only bright thing in the room. The fun of horror movie can be realized if you sit alone and so we decided not to sit in group, four of us sat on different places. The movie was JU-ON. The movie was scary but for pal the msgs were coming, he dared to ignore the msgs and enjoy the movie, soon pal noted that his room mate Bala has closed his eyes and is no more watching the movie, so pal decided that its time to scare his room mate. The movie went well and after dinner Bala and pal were sitting in room suddenly a spine chilling scream came. Bala asked did you hear something, Pal in a cool tone said what?

Bala: didn’t you hear a scream?

Pal: No, nothing! And why should I be scared, I haven’t done anything wrong!

Bala: what do you mean did I do anything wrong?

Pal: How will I know? See ghost haunt only those who have done something wrong.

Bala (in a scary tone) : But I just use to tease a gal who was in school and she later died in an accident.

Pal: (In a opportunistic tone) So before the accident did you tease her?

Bala: (Even more scared) I use to tease her always

Pal : Now she is here to tease you, may be cause of that you heard a scream. Then Pal made Bala hear another story.

Bala gulped water down his dry throat; the noise was so huge that it could be heard outside the room. Pal then decided to scare bala. He asked bala to take rest and calm his nerves. Bala kept the lights on and sat on bed with fear surrounding him. Pal in the mean time asked the wing mates to remain silent, and watch the show. Pal asked one of his room mate to prepare a black scary mask and this was ready in 10 mins. Pal collected the recorded sound from the movie and used a glow stick to make it look scarier.   

At midnight 12 the power of whole wing was out, Bala was still awake, the first scream was made, Bala got scared, now with the help of used deodorant and lighter blow of fire were created on the door. Next was the entry of pal with black kurta and black shawl and just like the devil he entered with black mask on, which glow in dark the face looked really scary, in dark Bala got the first glimps and he was crying all names but could not move, he kept calling Pal, suman, senthil, pronoy, but no one responded, he was scared to death and Pal entered the room and said “Its pay back time Bala, she is coming and she will take revenge”. Bala was scared to death. The last blow of fire was again created from the window, which grabbed Bala’s attention and a scream from the other side of window which made bala surrender to fear, he closed his eyes and this gave time for pal to run away. Then a silence of 5 mins, the power was again turned on. Bala then opened his eyes but could not find a single person; my wing mates were enjoying it from one end of the wing.

Bala then called all the names of wingmate but it was silent like a dead valley. He gathered the courage and tried to move out he then found pal coming from the other end. Bala told everything to pal and asked where is everyone, Pal said don’t you know they have gone to see the Thursday movie in the auditorium. Bala then said he is scared and wants to go to toilet, he then said pal u need to accompany me, Pal was shocked, he then got another chance to play another prank; they moved to towards toilet bala went in, and pal was at door. Pal started shouting, leave me, why troubling me, who are you.

Bala rushed out of the toilet and ran away, Pal started running behind Bala and acting as if someone is inside him, Bala then stopped and Pal kept his act, all of sudden Pal was hit at the back, Pal turned back and saw Bala with a wooden stick, Bala then kept hitting Pal and by that time other wing mates also came in to enjoy the moment, they also hit Pal, Pal had a real nightmare, he said the ghost is gone, he is fine now but the cruel wing mate didn’t leave the chance and kept hitting bala then asked others to stop after hearing Pal’s voice. Bala then took pal to room and said if you get scared do let me know. I will take care of that ghost. Pal could not utter a word. The prank which pal was playing on bala got reversed and Poor Pal did it again. He could not move from his bed for next 2 days the pain was so severe that his weekend was spoilt.

Moral of the story:  One story is good till second is told.

Got a chance to see DEV D in theater, a movie for the fast moving generation,( who really is on fast track today). A movie depicting a modern day devdas, what may have made people to go to theater may be the dialogues of the movie or the songs. But this was much more then this, it was about what is lacking in relationship of today. I just wana ask one thing from people is it so essential to live ur life on drugs when u really loose someone. Is it so necessary to cut the pain with another pain, which can cost you ur life. What makes devdas great is his agony for “Paro”, in the older version of devdas , hero lost his life but here he moved on. In my opinion that’s what makes movie so interesting.

 Movie clearly depicts how modern generation lack clarity, and just because someone else comes and talks rubbish about your love, you start doubting your love which has been there for so long. But what I would like to know more from this generation is: “Is love a physical relation or a metal bond”? Recently read a blog where author tried to present a thought: “Is virginity so important criterion for establishing relation”, the comment received clearly said they don’t mind if there loved one are not virgin, but if we go by people’s verdict, movie clearly depicts the opposite. I would really disagree with opinion of people, I would just say that people please be real, do not try to show off. We although are moving towards US culture. But still our mentality is not so open enough to accept such facts. Indians still can’t digest if even your loved one talks to someone else.

 The other point that was beautifully raised in the movie was how a minor became chandar, I mean we Indians talk a lot about being so innocent but are we really so, more then being innocent we are more hypocrite, if a girl who is minor is caught on a mms is being criticized only after watching the whole clip, people try to bond with her only after watching the whole clipping. Porn sells, but what if it sells on a cost of ruining someone’s life, even if it sells is it so important make an issue of it, not only people , the media also tries to get a bite out of the mental pain of that little gal. Even the family of that poor child does not stands and support her, what can be more excruciating for a gal, who suffered because her so called partner wanted to be famous or just wanted to show off her friends his brave deeds. What that gal said to dev was right, “Not even my dad hugged me and said its ok baby we will handle it, instead he preferred to shoot himself”. When will we be in a position to understand the mental pain the other person undergoes in such a situations.

The other good thing that I liked about movie is if a guy has pleasure with other gal then he is not blamed, but on contrary if a gal even thinks of it then, she is called a slut. I mean why such a discrimination, why is our mentality like this? Talking about slut, a very brave dialogue in the movie talks about a hindi word “Randi”. Now in the conversation between dev and chand, both of them discuss about there life, and when dev tries to ask how chand came in such a business , he could not use the proper hindi term cause he did not mean to hurt chand’s feeling. But the gal accepts it bravely and says why don’t u use that term, is it outdated?? Or is it wrong? What great we achieve if we call them by other name “sex worker”? They are all victim of man’s world who for a pleasure of second spoils life of others. What’s wrong if they accept that its man’s world and live with it, because they wana live there life. Why do we treat them like that? Some cool massages that movie gave were:

– Never drink and drive

– Drugs are always dangerous – You can’t trust a stranger be it a servant or a taxi driver.

– Be very clear in relation, the more u are clear, more you are happy.

– No one is born bad/spoilt; it’s just the circumstances that made them so.

All in all it gave so much to think about that one can discuss as long as he wants. But please let me know your views.
