The unconditional love..!!!!!!!!

Hello JUNTA once again.. I m back once again..But this time not to post my stuff but my friend "India Calling" ' s work. Yeah.. you read it rite..this still remains my blog but for a change i am posting her work coz of some very simple reasons

1 . She s my close frnd.
2. She seldom writes , so this a way i'd be encouraging the good work she sometime does.
3. Coz the post is all about TRIXY !!! (her dog)

So swthrt .. I am doin this favour not for you .. But for the unconditional love I have for TRIXY.. (note: I am mad at you for not having mentioned me explicitly in your article.. coz I was one person who was involved in "TRIXY BACHAO" andolan at ur home .Never mind , is baar tujhe maaf kar diya.)

India Calling , as I call her ( there s a long story behind tat name) is not a kind of a girl who would cuddle up with animals and have fun.. leave alone own one and take care of a pet.She'd run away from all the possible fun loving creatures.I never imagined tat of all people this girl would end up with TRIXY.

One cool morning , she calls me up to say "hey megs , mere ghar pe theres something which will make you go mad... you will love it..!! Amazing surprise in store for you." And I casually replied "Kyon.. tere ghar pe doggie toh aa nahin sakta that can surprise me... " n she stopped me n said "YES !!!!! " Thats what we are getting home today !!

Was i in my senses ? Did India Calling make n e sense ?? Did she say "DOG" ? .. Well to confirm tat I was in her house in 2mins(trust me .. 2mins...not one sec more ) n there i saw the "cutie pie" ... cuddled up neatly in a blanket .. eyes still closed .... oooooooooooooooooooo.. i loved that time.. that was an amazing moment ...

N the next few days .. her home had become my abode ... Would spend loads of time with TRIXY.. but eventually... he became such an important part of IC's life that I cant tell you.. I would hear IC's blabbering non-stop abt him.

Glad that TRIXY bought such a significant change in your life . It did make you realize what "unconditional love" truly means....

So .. here s what IC has to say about TRIXY ..
"TRIXY ki kahani ..IC ki zubani ...."

It is all about TRIXY. My sweet, cute, little darling. It was my pet. Brought it home on 6th of December 2005. One morning, dad called up and said that a puppy is on its way to our house.. I was shocked to listen that. Though excited to see him was a bit scared. The moment I saw it, was scared to touch it. How much ever my parents and friends forced to take into my hands, I used to refuse them every time. Forced my dad to give him back and I did not want it home. I was so inhuman to push it away when my dad placed the little one on my lap.

Days passed on, a week later; I started admiring it to the most. The small creature, which I refused to touch, is my dearest friend now. I used to take it into my hands, loved to feed him, make him sleep on my lap and what not. My day used to start with playing with him, end with waking him up just to say goodnight. Having seen it growing from a small pup to a cute little dog, which plays around coming in between our legs to a dog, which used to love us to the maximum extent, I learnt a perfect way to care for a person.

The innocence it has in its eyes, the love it gives and the care it showers has no bounds..!! No matter you feed him or not, play with him or not it comes to us wagging its tail just to show that it loves you. It changed our life completely. The situation when the total family was down with some or the other problems, it made us forget everything by its cute mischievous things. It never used to leave a single person in the total family including my grandpa to my relatives as though it has a strong bonding with them.

My heart fills with happiness when I think about the situation when it came running towards us, seeing my dad shouting on me. However, the matter was not serious, just hearing his voice loud, it came running to revolt back on him by raising his voice above and over his. We all were astonished to see him, sat down with lot of happiness and some unexpressed feelings in us. Have learnt what “love” is and how to love a person to the maximum extent from him.
We human, being so egoistic always want the other person to come to us often when we are into a quarrel. On the other side, a dog, which many people see it with disrespect, comes to us, sits at our feet just to feel our warmth, no matter how much ever we scold it or even harm it physically. By my heart, can say I never feel ashamed to bend my head to respect the love it has for its people. May be that is the reason god has created us in such a way that we have to bend our head to see them whereas they always see us with their head always up.

Very privileged was I to live with it for a year, though was not lucky enough to be with him all its life long. Have to leave it one day, another day in my life that I cannot forget. The tears I shed, the pain I felt, could not do justice to what it was for me. Have I lost something very precious in my life or was I very lucky enough to spend alteast a year with him still remains a question in my heart. “THE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE” it has given me in my life can never be forgotten. A permanent and a safe place it has got in my heart..
TRIXY, I love you..!!!!!!!!!!


@ IC ... this is only for Trixy .. madam aap apna blog khud shuru karo .... N yes.. I would like to send me some our amazing snaps with TRIXY so that I can post it here

Saanthwana: My first visit to an Orphanage.

Few captured moments at Bal Nikethan:

Over the last one year, I had been in touch with my friends here at Hyd and was amazed to know from them about their initiative towards homeless and unwanted kids and elderly.
I m proud to say that I had been associated with a group of people who were keen about doing something for the country. Only thing tat was troubling me was that I couldn't do anything productive to help them in their cause.

But now that I am back home, I knew my chance of doing my bit for my country (even though very small proportion) was here. I then attended the first meeting of SAANTHWANA on the 2nd of December 2007 at OU college steps and from here my journey towards becoming a true individual began.

Since the group had many known faces it was not difficult for me to gel with them, but at the same time I was introduced to many more individuals who were equally interested on making a difference.

My first official visit to an orphanage was on the 15th of December, 2007 to Bala Nikethan at Uppal . After a tiring journey from Hitech city (frm my office) to Uppal , I reached the Orphanage and those smiling faces made me feel so happy that the journey dint matter at all.
The love and reciprocation I received from them was amazing. Even though it was my first visit to the orphanage, I felt I had been visiting for sometime now and enjoyed every moment I spent with them. The way the kids mingled with me and played games, clicked photographs is way beyond what I had imagined.

The children were happier than one could possibly imagine. It was chaos of happiness.
Seeing this was just one of those moments that I cannot describe. It was one of those moments that reminds you of the power of the human spirit, and the hope that these children must live with everyday. I think that if they didn't have hope for a better future then it would be hard to survive there.

We all are so lost in the fancy world during which we hardly seem to notice other things. We all have luxuries yet we always carve for more. When we see these children in orphanages we notice how lucky we really are.

The purpose of me writing this blog is plain and simple - be a part of this noble cause and do your bit for your society and country on the whole and experience the happiness.

Saanthwana: Emotionally Yours

Saanthwana – I m proud to be associated with it.

Saanthwana is a group of like-minded individuals who share a passion to serve the society selflessly.

About the Group:

In Sanskrit, the word ‘Saanthwana’ means consolation, which is the fundamental idea behind the formation of this organization. We believe that the needs of the homeless extend beyond monetary support. Rather than providing them with financial support and dusting our hands off them, we intend to give them love, affection and a feel that there is someone who cares about their happiness and contentment.

There are a lot of people who want to contribute to the society, but do not know how to go about it. The group intends to provide them with a platform, which enables them to visit orphanages and old-age homes and spend time with the people there and give them moments to cherish.

Their roots:

They started off with a community on Orkut called the ‘Homeless...unwanted’ and succeeded in creating a network of around 100 people in Hyderabad. A day per month is dedicated towards visiting an orphanage/old age home and the network is notified with details of the visit and every person with free time visits the orphanage/old age home that day spending around 3-4 hours.

Though the group is not very keen on funds and donations, any money that is collected before the visit is spent in buying things that are requested by the particular orphanage/old age home.

They have been receiving funds not only from people in Hyderabad but also people in Bangalore and USA who are not able to visit in person, but want to contribute to the cause.

The USP, of the group is to concentrate on building an emotional bond with the children and making them feel wanted. They strongly feel that they are no different from any other child and we set out to make the children think the same way. It is for this reason that they conduct visits to orphanages to spend some time, giving the children happy memories and ourselves an immense amount of elation.

More about Saanthwana can be found on Orkut, community name is Homeless..Unwanted(to be upgraded soon to Saanthwana).

Nothing Lasts Forever ...

I am not writing this post based on the Sidney Sheldon novel that s one of my favs - Nothing Lasts Forever ... But something that happened recently made me think about this title and the deep meaning it had.

I was at Walden - the book store , waiting for my brother to come from his office and pick me when I saw this book on the shelf. This was in fact the first Sidney Sheldon book I ever read and loved , but this time it was something else that drew me towards it.The title.

" Nothing Lasts Forever "

A few thing have happened over the last few days , about which I cannot mention here and every time I tried to avoid thinking about it ,it kept coming rite back to me - Nothing Lasts forever...

The nature of things is that if they don't get lost, they get stolen, and if they don't get stolen, they get broken, and if they don't get broken, they fade or fall apart. This includes teacups, cars, sweaters, computers, earrings, and just about everything you can touch or experience or have--even relationships. Believe it or not, it helps to know that although "it" is in one piece now, its eventual, inevitable state is broken.
And oh, I almost forgot: As hard as it is to realize that your favorite earring/car won't last forever, it's even harder to realize that the people you love won't last forever--and neither will you.

Things most cherished and nurtured, eventually and inevitably become nothing... Relationship don't always start as we might expect, nor end as we might wish ..

A true life incident just brought back this harsh reality in front of me. As an ode to the relationship - the love that was there , I write the following lines for both of them . I am really sorry , but I wish I could do something about it.

Nothing Lasts Forever ...

I’ve thought it over and I know what I want,
No matter what others say, or how much ever they taunt.
Lately, few things have been in my mind
No others means to express I find.

I never really knew you
you were just another friend
But when I got to know you,
I let my heart unbend.

There was this time I thought that you were just for me,
I saw no flaw in my choice, but I guess I clearly dint see.
I never knew this relationship would come to such an end,
And eventually I’d get back to calling you as a friend.

Not holding you in my arms is tearing me apart,
Being away is something I never imagined from the start.
I never thought we'd fall in love, so mad
I never realized life without you would be so bad.

This can't be over; we're still not through,
There's so much we haven't shared - so much we promised to do.
I still can’t stop myself from thinking that I’ll never be able to see you again,
But again, this is my choice and I am not going to complain.

They don't know what we are going through,
How much you love me and I love you.
If they only knew how you made me feel,
with all the problems you helped me deal.
How you taught me I was much more than I had ever thought -
All of the Joy, Happiness, and Love to me you brought.

Thoughts we shared, a life we lived, and a love we had together
and then it strikes back big time that Nothing Lasts Forever.

It's killing me that now that day has come,
If it's for the best then where is this pain from?
I know deep inside that this is what I had to do
but it's breaking my heart to walk away from you

I'm trying my best to appear strong,
but it's hard when part of me says that in your arms is where I belong.
I still love you with all my heart,
and that's not going to change even though we're apart

All the words I ever said or wrote still hold true
But for now from a distance is where I'll be loving you.
I think you need me as a friend to help you through,
because there are things I can't control that are hurting you

Maybe we will be together again if it was meant to be,
but for now please don't stop loving me
Even though I'm not your girlfriend I'll still be here,
With a shoulder to cry on or a sympathetic ear.

One day I will return to you all you have given me,
In some shape or form; soon you'll see.
One day we will be able to be together every day,
And we won't have to worry what they say.

So when the time comes, promise me you'll take my hand and be with me forever,
But again, I am sorry for now.. I have to say that Nothing Lasts Forever

Its all about me...

Well.. I had been thinking for quite sometime now as in what else should be written in the blog….N I saw many of them telling abt themselves ….

I guess I should try doing it too..

So, who am I?

Like most people would say, describing oneself is a lil complicated .. Seriously.. I mean it…

It is complicated as I’m not always entirely sure who I am from one moment to the next. I am very moody.. In fact, all I'm certain of is that I'm not quite the same person as I was when I was in Hyd b4 leaving for Blore.

This one year outside home has made me realise so many things abt life and also that I got a chance to more abt myself…more abt tat in comin posts..

N e ways.. Coming back to what I feel abt myself. …Ummmm … I am a DREAMER.. Always drifting off and my imagination takes control. I can be both calm and peaceful but I’d like to feel free to explore my surroundings.

I love ice creams n cholates .. well who doesn’t for tat matter.. but wat surprises most of my friends is that I hate FLOWERS .. I m not sure why .. but I cant stand them… weird rite… ?? but I guess that how I am …
I genuinely like to speak in front of others. Big crowds, small – doesn’t matter – I’ve gotten to the point that I enjoy it – I specially love thinking on my feet and having to do impromptu talks/speeches.

When I think of freedom – I feel its very imp that a person has all the right to do what he wishes for.N youd fine me opposing you if u’d stop me from doing ne thing tat I believe in and I m not let to do it.could be bossy abt it … but again there are times when u have to aggressive .
Life is for living – live it man!!!

As for art – any form – I love it. My fav pastimes include Singing, dancing, poetry, reading and cooking.

Music -> it’s the soundtrack to my world. Gives me focus and concentration many a times n I find it really hard to switch off . I ‘ve been thinking offlate I shuls take up some kinda singng lessons.. wats say should I try ?

Dance,-> tats my passion. Be it classical or bollywood or salsa… I cannot live without it. Since I m a trained dancer, I’d love to get back to dancing any time. Over the past few years I’ve been away from it. But I guess now that I am back let’s see if I can do justice to it.

Poetry is whole world to me and I love spending time penning my thoughts …It’s a medium I think is best to express one feelings.. I guess this is where I let my imagination take control over me… :)

Reading.. if I am not doin ne thing , I’d like to spend time reading some kinda book. I prefer reading fiction stuff. It started frm school days and I still remember hiding the novels behind my schoolbooks n reading them.
Musy say ,mom n dad had a difficult time controlling this habit I had developed. Its difficult to keep a book aside once I start reading it.

Again, I have varied interest here. I love reading Harry Potter series – they are my fav , but again Dan Brown, Sidney Sheldon, Robin Cook.. I love each n every one of them n their works…Preferably mystery is my area of choice.

Now .. its time for cooking -> well since I love eating , I guess I shuld learn to cook too .. So I m trying to master this domain .. learign a lot from mom these days…She s happy coz it takes a lil load off her , and also she feels ladki shaadi ke liye ready ho rahi hai .. but my intetions are not the same … hehehe…I cook for myself.. coz I get pleasure by doin it.. by experimenting on things tht make ur mouth water….yummmyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Now enough of my interests…

Next is… love for animals.. esp Dogs .. how can I forget telling u abt it.. My friends Gagan thinks I can go about kissing even a stray dog… well he s rite actually.. don’t they deserve love.?. they do rrite.. n I don’t mind showering them with all the love .. J
Casper would soon become a part of my family now – yup more on CASPER in the later posts…J keep guessing till then …

Oh- insatiable! The thirst for affection never drops in me and tats the reason I love spending quality time with family and friends, try catching up on them whenever I can..Although, its been sometime I have missed a few of them.. sorry guys.. I’d make up for it soon.. I promise!!!
To be frank, the comfort of being loved makes me feel free with my thoughts and words – I guess I should thank god for giving me a lovable family and a great friend circle.also I am A lil nostalgic and love revisiting familiar places and memories.

I am a bit naughty.. Being good all the time is a bore for me.Its fun irritating frnds and tat tops my list wen I m around them..

When it comes to holidays , I reckon they shuld always be indulgent –a very special treat and a chance to recharge your batteries.they shuld always involve my family or friends – the most imp part of my life…or I shuld say they r my life…

I could also say that I am home soul and care deeply abt family and family life and what comes with it .. a love bug – and I expect my life partner to understand how important the above things are for me.

When it comes to love… ooooooo.. I am a hopeless romantic person. Ok, life may not be a movie, but what’s wrong with thinking it is ?? aren’t they made from practical experiences?
And…oops I never realised I could write so much abt myself..and I feel I can still write loads .. tat proves one thing which I forgot to mention – I M VERY TALKATIVE .. a complete chatterbox and could eat ur brain n e time…

Enough of eating this time though… so till next post.. take care …

Be "happy-sad" and not "sad-sad" ...

Does the title of this post ring n e bell ?? Nah .... then you've missed watching one of the good movies lately "Cheeni Kum "... It goes like this :

Sexy (the girl , who happens to be Amitabh's friend) speaks to him when he s hurt 'coz of Tabu and this is what she has to say...
" Hum sad kyon hote hain ? Hum sad hain kyon mann heavy - heavy hai ...
Mann heavy-heavy kyon hai ? Kyon ki mann ko kisine hurt kiya hai ....
Mann ko kaun itna hurt kar sakta hai ? Jo mann ke very very close ho ...
Kaun mann ke very very close hota hai ? Jiske saath mann happy - happy feel karta hai ...
So be happy - sad and not sad -sad .... "

This scene has become one of my favorites and n e time I feel low 'coz of n e thing I need to just watch this n some how i just get back to my original self .... Also , this is one of the scenes which has made me think abt certain issues in life which otherwise we'd like to neglect.

Being happy-sad has become the new funda now ...

A situation i'd like to tell you abt is , when the love we have for a person is not resiprocated back to us in the way we want it to then we kinda start feeling all negative about that person .We try finding faults with the person and at the same time we somehow loose the respect we have for him/her and eventually end up being depressed to the max extent.

I guess , the best funda here would be to be "happy -sad" and not "sad-sad" ....Nahin samjhe ?
simple yaar... we loved the person for the simple reason that we loved being with them , it made us feel happy...So , now by finding fault with the person , we are in a way degrading our feelings for the person and that is nothing but degrading ourselves...

So , the simple solution to it would be , like i've said be happy sad - happy for the fact tat u've actually truly felt something for a person , and a lil sad coz it dint turn out the way you wanted it to....

we never put a conditon b4 loving tat it has to be reciprocated back rite? So , why feel so negative abt it now ?? Respect the person for what he/she is ... respect the feelings you had for him/her and be happy .....

Seems very filmi rite ??? but i guess this is the best thing to do ..Instead of developing a feeling of hatred towards the person which will eventually lead to a situation where in you would never feel like listening to n ething related to him /her and feel bad bad for what has happened....

Instead be happy and let others be happy .......

But again like everybody says ... "Bolna assan hai par nibhana mushkil hai " ... arey yaar try karke toh dekho ... I m sure it will work out well and then you'd never have to feel sad about n e thing ... Or even you are sad, there has to be a silver lining to it ....

Toh dost log, try this funda sometime ... n see if it helps you ... It worked for a few of them I know... and felt i shuld be sharing this gyan with you too ....

N not just in matters of luv.. i think it will work in almost every situation....

aap bhi apna gyan baato... gyan baatne se aur badhta hai ..:)

will try posting the video here ......will make it easy for you to understand how imp funda it is...
till next post .. Dont be sad ... be happy-sad .....

OOps.... Just be HAPPY ... :)

Finally I 've started blogging ....

Well.. this was one thing which I hadnt tried... to think of it now.. it makes me wonder as in what kept me away from Blogging all these days ??
May be I wasnt interested , or was it that I really dint understand the need for blogging.Even now , before I start my own blog I checked why other people blog ..Watever be their reason I personally felt that this was one way for my friends and family to keep up with what was going on in my life.And hence I decided to call my blog as "Megha's Diary" .. sounds similar to "Princess Diaries" rite ...?? ehh.. who cares... this is mine n I will write what I want...

The best funda about blogging is the audience, and that you are blogging for them - but you are blogging by your own rules and not theirs.So whether I post regularly or not would be decided by me... I guess as of now since I am new to this world I'd be more regular...but people who know me well are sure that it all completely depends on my mood...

N e ways.. I wouldnt want bore you much by penning on why I want to blog and blah.. blah....but yeah I'd definetely want to you to keep giving me ur views on the posts...

So.. tahts it for my first post ... BLOG WORLD .. here i come!!!!
