5 Things Every Human Need​

Comfortable Outfit

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.

A Book

Books are not just stories, some are filled with life,
Some are with lessons or with the light to change your life.

Energizing Song

Some breath music, some live music.
Even silence is music, the music whimsical.

Happy Place

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. 

Living Like Humans

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 2017 Update

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).

The Time I went on a Road Trip to Vrindavan

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.

Are you Beautiful or Pretty?

When I was in 9th standard my teacher asked the class what is the difference between beautiful and pretty?

And listening to these words filled my mind with supermodels, actresses and people on the front page of magazines. Just when I was admiring how amazing Cameron Diaz looked on the front page of the cosmopolitan magazine, she asked the question again. And this time I tried to focus but I couldn’t figure out the difference.

The whole class was quite, some knew the answer but couldn’t put it in words, some were just confused and some thought that we were going to study synonyms that day.

After a long pause, she said that she never expected an answer from us and it is okay that we don’t know. And then she explained the difference.

Beautiful is a person who feels good, a person who is content while pretty is a vanity word. Pretty means looking good and just looking good.

I never knew that words hold so much power and even synonyms are so significantly different. From that day on I wanted to be a beautiful person and I still want to.

But as I grew up I realised that even though beautiful is a state that we should aspire to be in but we run after pretty.

 

This world is all about looking, not feeling.

If you look good you must feel good right!?

But what if we don’t?

 

People say we are not allowed to be impaired if we don’t have a terminal disease or wounds to show.

But we are hurt and we are in pain and don’t know how to explain.

 

Dressing up, putting on makeup, wearing high heels are the ultimate signs of being happy or so I’ve heard.

But I’ve seen people laughing hard while crying inside.

I’ve seen people dressed up from tip to toe while feeling hollow inside.

I’ve seen people just surviving, passing each day by.

 

If someone looks good it doesn’t mean they feel good.

So maybe once in while ask, “How are you feeling” instead of saying “You look good.”

Free Verse by Mortal in White

 

It felt so lonely here, amidst them all

All the loved ones were here and the dear ones too

If it was a feeling of a phase, I don’t know

No one tried nor did I and the feeling or phase seemed more perpetual

 

And then I moved from wretched to anxious and then to serene

 

Now I’m happy being alone, makes me content

All the noise is gone and I’m calm

Today I know the contrast in alone and lonely

I understand both, I respect both, I espouse both

 

I acknowledge happiness is awesome, but the Universe doesn’t revolve around a smile

Nothing is Normal and Everything is Normal

I have been part of so many discussions and sometimes even debates trying to decide what is normal and what is not. This question has been a lot on my mind recently with everything that is going on in the world, in the countries and in our cities. I googled normal to know what the majority opinion of the word was and I found out that normal is something which completely depends on the standards and norms of the society *I knew that*. So, basically normal is something that stops you from being different, trying new things and just going crazy. Anything that is not traditional or has not been done by anyone in about a gazillion years is not normal.

I won’t pretend to be an extremely open-minded person because it is something I am not, I do have some pretty strong opinions and choices and I like to think they are reasonable *just like everybody else*. For starters I hate smokers not because smoking is bad for their health but mostly because it is bad for non-smokers like me, I get that you enjoy taking puffs of toxins and pretend to be cool but I don’t want to get sick because somebody else is trying to be cool. The list of my intolerance is pretty long but I do know that everyone is different no matter how similar or normal they try to look or be. I also know that no matter how different opinions and choices everyone has we all have to live together in this world.

We are part of a galaxy which is made up of millions of things and we only know about 8 planets and out of those planets we just have 1 planet on which we can exist and even on that 1 planet we have 7 continents and 196 countries in which 7 billion people live and we call all this- normal. Our body is made up of numerous veins and bones and we consume a gas to survive and it is all- normal. We experience 2 kinds of season and 4 kinds of weather in a year and our major power source is a big ball of superhot plasma which is 150 million km away from us and it is all- normal. Nothing is normal and everything is normal, it is just about the perspective.
Stay Awesome.
