Book Review : "The Calling" by Priya Kumar

Image
We often ask questions to ourselves- What is purpose of our life? Why are we here in this world? Why me? Why this happens with me all the time? Where is GOD? What are Karmas? Why do we have to face difficult situations in life? What is death?
Well here is Priya Kumar's another book to answer all these questions "The calling - Unleash your true self"
Story starts with a character called “Arjun” who has not done anything right in his life. He has messed up his everything - be it personal life or professional. Frustrated with his life he decides to take a trip to mountains where he experiences near death, not just once but many times, giving him realization about his life and what has he done to it.
Towards his journey to Hemkund Sahib, Arjun met a Sadhu, who made him undergo different tests of self realization, reveling purpose of his life and made him evolve into the person he had denied to be- Himself
This is not just a motivational book, it is a spiritual adventure, an enco…

How can a person who was once your life becomes a stranger to you?

Falling in Love, Beautiful Relationship, Breaking up, Moving On are the most common words we hear every day!
Sometime people fall in love at an instance, sometimes it takes a while . Whatever it may be, according to me LOVE is the most beautiful thing in the world. Love birds are so much into each other, that they know every minute details (likes/ dislikes) about their partners!
They cannot spend a single minute without knowing what the other one is doing! They are deeply in Love Hanging out, trying to be familiar with each other families, surprising one another, caring, talking more than 10 times a day, continuous chats when far..
A day without one another feels incomplete.
We happily accept to be away from our friends/ family just because we want to spend quality time with our special someone. We are so ‘Committed’ that we cannot imagine our life without them.
BUT one fine day either mutually or one- sided, the most common thing occur “BREAKUP”.                                 One …

Which type of 'Sister - Sister' relation is yours?

Image
Do you really need a friend when you have a sister?
There are many sort of “sisi relationships” that I have come across. Which one is yours?
TYPE 1 : SOUL SISTERS Sisters who don’t need anyone else to be with them, they are enough for each other and any third party ( friends/boyfriends/ best friends) are not required to complete them.
They enjoy every moment being with each other, they fight, they cry, they plan trips, they go shopping, they can talk for hours, they understand each other so well that no words are required to express feelings to each other, there are no hidden secrets, they are best of best friends. All other friends they have are the common ones.
They keep each other on priority, husbands/ boyfriends get attention when “sis” is not around.
TYPE 2 : FIGHTING CATS
When they are far, they miss each other a lot but when they meet – all they can do is FIGHTING. They love one another a lot but this never ending competition is always on, they are not able to share secrets a…

Success is not a destination it’s a journey

Success is not a destination it’s a journey

Everyone wants to be successful in their life, we define our own success goals and then- Make a plan, Gear up and start working to achieve them. Our definition of being successful is to achieve the desired goals. It could be anything – Achieving 80% in 12th Board, getting a job, conducting an Exhibition, Winning a photography contest, making a trip to a dreamy place, getting a promotion or winning a race!
We work really hard to achie what we have desire, we plan our journey – According to the plan we proceed, day and night one thought and we keep working towards it. In this process of getting close to our goals we meet new people- they at times join us, with rug and rough, hard and tough, laugh and cry, lazy and dry, work and sail we reach near our destinations
All these activities are nothing but our journey “Our beautiful journey” towards success and this journey is as important as the end result!
And let me tell you one thing - Success i…

Motivating Others Will Motivate You In The Process

Your Motivation might help someone achieve their DREAMS!! :)
How to Motivate: Long speeches are not going to work in any way. 

Ask open ended questions:
- Discuss in detail, what their dreams are? What are their plans to achieve them? Provide your inputs. Ask how long have they been dreaming about it? Let them know -you are there if they need any help. Support your friends and their new business just like you support celebrities, whom you don't even know.
Discuss your dreams with them, who knows while discussing you might get an idea to fulfill your dreamy dreams.
Most important part is to ENCOURAGE

याद कुछ यूँ करना की लबों पे मुस्कान ला सकूँ...................

Image
याद कुछ यूँ  करना की लबों पे
मुस्कान ला सकूँ

फ़रियाद कुछ यूँ करना की
अधूरे सपने सजा सकूं

तड़पा हूँ हर रोज़ तेरी याद मैं
काश फिर से तुझे पा सकूँ

खता थी मेरी जो  दूर गया तुझसे
पलट जाए वक़्त कुछ ऐसे की अपनी गलतियां सुधार सकूँ

सोचा ना था की ऐसा भी मंज़र आएगा
तू मुझसे यूँ खफा हो जायेगा

एक मौका  और  दे
तेरी ज़िन्दगी फिर फूलों  सी सजा सकूँ

तुझे देख के फिर से मुस्कुरा सकूँ!!!!!!!
तेरे लबों पे मुस्कान ला सकूँ!!!!!!!!!!!




एक बेखुद सपना याद तेरी दिला गया

Image
एक बेखुद सपना याद तेरी दिला  गया
भुला हुआ तेरा चेहरा फिर मुझे रुला गया गया!!!!!

तुझपे भरोसा था खुद से ज़्यादा
प्यार था दुनियां मैं सबसे ज़्यादा !!!

टूट कर खड़े होना तू सिखा गया
प्यार भरे दिल मैं नफरत का दिया जला गया !!


कैसे कोई इतना बदल जाता है!!!!!!

Image
कैसे  कोई इतना बदल जाता है
एक पल मैं यूँ  तनहा तनहा कर जाता है 
वादे तो बड़े किये थे  साथ चलाएंगे कश्ती समुन्दर की लहरों मैं 
 कैसे कोई  इतनी आसानी से वादों को झुटला जाता है 
मेरी जान कह के जो रोज़ मुझे जगाता  था  आज हर रात वही रुला जाता है 
गुज़रा हुआ हर लम्हा याद उसकी दिलाता है  वो बेखबर अपनी ही धुन मैं चला जाता है 
अंजान है वो मुझसे कुछ ऐसे जैसे  हमारा कोई नाता ही ना हो 
ये सोच के वक़्त क्यों थम सा जाता है 
कैसे कोई इतना बदल जाता है !!!!

काश फिर लौटा दे कोई वो बचपन की कश्तियाँ, यारो के साथ की मस्तियाँ !!!!!

Image
बरसात  के साथ यादों का अफसाना  कुछ यूँ चला, हर नया पुराना रिश्ता दिल को छूने सा लगा !!
कुछ इस तरह ये बूँदें मुझे गद्गुदायीं   यारो क साथ बिताए हुए पल याद ले आईं 
वो शरारती शामें  वो चाय की चुस्कियां  वो बेफिक्री  वो सावन की लड़ियाँ 
वो शरारत करने पे पापा की सज़ाएं  वो बीमार होने पे माँ की थपकियाँ !! दीदी के साथ की हुई मस्तियाँ  साथ चलायी थी हमने कागज़ की कश्तियाँ !!
सीखी थी सखियों के साथ नयी अदाएं  ज़ुल्फ़ों मैं गुम होती  फ़िज़ाएं !!
फिर तय किया कुछ दोस्तों क साथ  नए शहर का सफर, पढ़ाई खत्म होने क बाद का नया मंज़र  इन ही बारिशों मैं घूमा था चप्पा चप्पा  हाथ पकड़ कर !!
आधी रात की बारिशें  वो मिटटी की खुशबुएं !!!
बिना सोये रात भर की थी बातें  एक दूसरे को हम कितना थे सताते 
वो साथ मिलके गाये हुए गाने  न जाने हमने बनाए थे कितने अफ़साने !!
बीते हुए सावन के पल कुछ इस तरह गुनगुनायें  जिनसे  तन्हाई मैं भी महफ़िल जम जाए !!
यारो की यारी, रिशतेदारों की रिश्तेदारी , माँ पापा का दुलार, दीदी का प्यार  कभी ये हँसा जाए कभी ये रुला जाए !!
काश  फिर से वो बीते हुए पल कोई लौटा जाए
उची इमारत की खिड़की से देखती हूँ जब …

Life is a open book full of blank pages, write your own story. Do not let anyone else take your pen....Paint your life with your colors :)

Image
Do not let anyone write on the blank pages of your life, only you are authorized to fill in the pages the way you like your life to be. Do not let anyone take the command of something that you own- it’s your life. Be an artist and paint the canvas with your experience, thrill, excitement and opportunities  
Consider everyday as a new beginning, a new opportunity. You have your ink/color and a new blank page every day, do not let it go blank, also do not allow anyone to complete the story of your life as they want. You create one for yourself. You may fall, you may fail some days but rise again with the new sun rise. Learn from your mistakes, try to rectify them and if you can’t rectify, count them in your experience.
We get to live only once and we are not just born to study, do our jobs, save money, get married, grow children and die. There is a lot more out there. Go out, breath in fresh air.. Make memories, hang out with friends, send your parents on a vacation with the money you have e…

कमबख्त नींद है के जाती नहीं!!!

कमबख्त नींद है के जाती नहीं!!!

रोज़ एक काम लेकर  बैठती हूँ
लेकिन  वो कर पाती नहीं
क्यूंकि कमबख्त ये नींद  है जो जाती नहीं!!!!!!

बहुत हुआ आराम,
कल सुबह से शुरू करुँगी प्राणायाम
ये अलसाई अखियाँ खुल पाती नहीं
कमबख्त नींद है की जाती नहीं!!

सांझ  होते ही फूल सी खिल जाती हूँ ,
आ गया वक़्त सोने का ये गुनगुनाती हूँ
ख़ुशी से बिस्तर पर पसर जाती हूँ
मुस्काते हुए पल्खें झुकाती हूँ

दुनियां की सारी  चिंताएं बस इसी पल  सताती हैं
मेरी प्यारी नींद को दूर मुझसे ले जाती हैं
कितनी भी कर कोशिश दूर समस्याएं कर पाती नहीं
परेशान हूँ मैं ये नींद क्यों अब मुझे आती नहीं

समझा बुझा  के खुद को मैं सुला लेती हूँ
व्ययाम करुँगी कल से ये प्रतिज्ञा लेती हूँ

अलार्म बजते  ही अखियाँ मिस्मिसाति हैं
स्नूज़ पे डाल  के आराम से फिर सो जाती हैं
कितनी भी  कोशिश करो स्नूज़ की आदत छूट पाती नहीं
कमबख्त ये नींद है की जाती नहीं !!!



No one is BUSY, it’s all about priorities

Image
We often hear excuses from our loved ones – “Sorry was too busy, will not be able to make it today” “Sorry could not respond to your message as I was way too busy” “I am so sorry dear, I am busy can we postpone the plan?” “Can you please go with someone else, I will not be able to make it I am BUSY”
We often tend to wait for the person who keep giving above excuses, We believe them and start testing our patience. At times we are hurt but try to convince ourselves “He/she might be really busy, else he/she would have come/called/texted” To be very clear there is no word called -“BUSY”, it is all about the priorities. In case if a person is genuinely stuck into something really important and is not able to make up to the plan then he/she will take it as his responsibility and will balance the situation by providing the time you need or by planning something special to surprise you.
I often hear my friends/colleagues complaining – My one is way too busy to spend time with me, he has thin…

Aura Around US : Be Cautious

There are many people we meet every day, few come close and then closer, with them we can share our everything and then there are few whose presence hardly matter.

I always wonder why is it like this - few people make us feel comfortable whereas with few we get this unwanted feeling, they repel.
Talking about one of the relations that we create on our own: Friends

- Few friends make us feel comfortable and we tend to spend a lot of time with them, sharing our deepest secrets.

- With few we just enjoy, though we do not share any emotional connect but yet we like them around us.

- Then there are few, who we call as “our friends” but we can't  even stand the sight of them.We get this feeling of discomfort  when they are around.

All this happens because every person has his/her own energy and they emit the same. Certain people give off positive energy, others negative.

People with Positive Energy:
People who exude an inviting sense of heart, compassion and suppo…

And he calls me Immature.....

I wrote few lines on behalf of all the girls who are called immature coz they behave childish in front of their friends/ boyfriend/Husband.
Girls do it coz, you are really close to them and they can show their innocent side in front of you!! THIS DOESN'T MEAN - THEY ARE IMMATURE.

We together had all the fun, 
We were different lives in the same run, 
After all our daily chores are done, 
We meet again to play with the water gun, 
Ohh no! In the water fight he opened my bun.

I am so happy; I have my one, 
with him I can talk, play and do the undone.

Suddenly, one day, with the morning sun, 
something unusual begun.
I asked him; take me out – “I want to buy a pendant’ 
He thought I was so dependent! 
At work I splendent 
Returning home, tired, I ordered his favorite Pizza senlendent, 
He scolded- u can’t cook, you are delivery dependent.
I wondered- Why he became so ascendant.

With him I was so sure, 
we together could go for a lifelong tour, 
I want him to pamper me, to take m…
