An armour it is, to survive this world.
The world where humans live, not humanity.
But I see those who are different, want to change.
Make the species mean something, again.
Books are not just stories, some are filled with life,
Some are with lessons or with the light to change your life.
Some breath music, some live music.
Even silence is music, the music whimsical.
Places can make you different, can change you.
Some stay with you, in memories or every day.
Finding one that makes you shiver, is a miracle.
Miracle worth holding on to.
Thirst to Be Better
Live, don’t just be,
Live in a way so serene, that your yesterday smiles and the tomorrow be
something, make your name not just a name but a name behind names.
I recently found an explanation to keep myself sane and not get annoyed or angry, I think. People can only see what they understand including me.
When someone makes a joke about being depressed they don’t understand the complex and dying scenario behind depression. I know all of us are dying but some of us can really feel the death and to understand that, one needs to see it and to see it, they have to understand it.
When we casually say ‘grow up’ the ulterior motive behind saying that is either ‘don’t bug me’ or ‘DON’T BUG ME.’ I know it is easier to look away and a lot easier to forget. But is it something that is a solution. I know you will feel guilty for looking away when that person is no more around, I know you will try to educate others when that person is no more around, I know you will blame yourself when that person is no more around but that person is no more around, whatever the reason.
Why do we want people to ignore it or just shake it off?
The answer is simple, I think, we do not understand it so we do not see it.
We don’t see:
People committing suicide
Our world getting darker
People asking for help
Air getting smokier
Our body getting weaker
The earth dying
Time flies like water,
Water flows like rocks.
We used to be one,
Now, one is just a number.
We thought we could grow together.
But looks like one of us got bored.
We waited, did we?
We should have… maybe
Leaving someone, something is a task
A task no one ever wants to perform,
But it’s just a way
Of living, living like humans.
March was a month full of an empty feeling and somehow fulfilling at the same time.
I went on a road trip with one of my closest friends which was really amazing and something we’ve been planning for months.
I finished my creative writing course and now I feel a little bit professional. The class was an amazing and enlightening experience. In the class, I met so many intellectually developed and mentally skilled people. It was really hard to say goodbye and to accept that we won’t be discussing topics in the class every day.
I saw the Beauty and the Beast (La Beaut et la Beast) with my sister and it was amazing. I mean Emma Watson and a Disney production, it had to be amazing.
There was a lot more activity in the month but above events were a little more significant.
Mentally- I feel refreshed and ready to try writing in a different way.
Physically- I think it was the best month yet.
Conclusion- There’s always tomorrow (I hope).
Somedays I want to change the world,
Somedays I am just happy to get up.
Somedays I want to help the needy,
Somedays I am the needy.
Somedays I smile, I sparkle,
Somedays I frown and I frown.
Somedays all it takes is a coffee,
Somedays it takes a lot more than that.
Somedays are definitely better than the others,
And the other somedays makes me better.

On a Friday night, 3rd March’ 17 I got a call from one of my friends. I accepted the call in excitement as I had a few things to tell her about but I was left stunned by what she said. She told me that we were going on a weekend trip the very next day and obviously, I said yes but it didn’t really matter as I was told that I am going rather than being asked. We’ve been planning a weekend getaway for a long time now but always had to cancel because of some reason or the other.
We left in the afternoon of 4th March’ 17 and were excited for an amazing spa weekend. Because you know we weren’t initially going on a road trip, the trip just turned into a road trip when we couldn’t find the resort. And it was the best thing that happened to us. We enjoyed the amazing Yamuna Express Highway as we clicked lots of pictures. After all the driving we were finally there, we had booked a mini villa in the Shri Brij Radha Vasundhara Resort of Vrindavan. The resort was mesmerising, it was also calm, peaceful and picturesque. All in all, it was true to its pictures online and it’s selling point. We were in the resort for 17 hours and out of the total we slept for 7 hours because you know, night time.
The next day i.e. 5th March’ 17 we woke up early to watch the sunrise and just roamed around trying to inhale as much fresh oxygen as we could and obviously clicked a lot of pictures. After that, it was breakfast time after that getting ready time and in the end checking out time. When we were leaving the resort and thought about our experience at the resort we could only manage to give the stay- 3.5 stars. It was at a perfect location, it was really peaceful and the food was also amazing but the service and the maintenance weren’t really on point.
Since we were in Vrindavan we had to go to at least one of the temples there so, we went to the Bankey Bihari temple. But unfortunately we were five minutes late and the temple was closed, not the whole temple only the gates to see the statue of the god. So for future convenience, we know that the temple close at 1 pm and then opens at 4:30 pm.
Now it was finally time to head back home and this time also we took the Yamuna Express Highway and enjoyed the amazing view.
I was back home by almost 6 pm with a calm mind and kickass pictures.
I stuck to my resolution list and tried new things. February is a short month and makes me feel impotent at times but I fought through that feeling and did cool things *according to me*.
This month started okay, the first and second week was really basic life like classes, homework and blog.
Now the third week was the highlight of the month because it is the week in which I attended my first ever legit concert *yes, I am 20 years old* and got to see KANAN GILL perform.
*This is not me, this is my lucky friend Vatsla Sharma with Kanan Gill and Kenneth Sebastian. The picture was clicked using my phone*
And I also changed my hair, it is the shortest I have ever gotten my hair *It is I cannot make a ponytail short* and I really like it. I was looking for something different and it is the perfect amount of different.
*This is me sporting my short hair in front of a generator*
This was also the week when I attended my dear friend’s photography exhibition in which she won two awards. *not really my achievement but wanted to mention it*
*1st and last picture is by my friend, Aashima Bhutani for which she was awarded*
I wrote another poem which was inspired by my favourite quote in life and I am really proud of it so, you should definitely check it out *self-promo*.
And then the rest of the month was just basic life.
Mentally- It was enlightening as I got to try many different types of writing styles in class.
Physically- I had few lazy days but I think I did pretty good.
Conclusion- Live, It’s the only thing that makes sense.
