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
