Life is like a game of Contra!




Sometimes, when I start writing I find it very difficult to frame my thoughts into words… But here I am again trying to jot down what is there in my mind.. :-)

Today, while sipping my morning coffee and thinking about life… this thought clicked my mind, how similar our lives are to the game we used to play “Contra”…

I started exploring the thought and realized yes, Indeed it is!

The only difference is…. in a game we get warnings like alert, difficulty level, new weapon, bonus points, gifts, accidents.. Here in life we face it first then we realize what it was :P

Coming to the comparison part, I feel I have grown up from Tetris to Contra… there I just compared life and troubles… Here, I have a lot more… :-)

So, here it starts, when we start the game… we adjust with the surroundings just like life… In every new scenario we adjust first school then college, office… We develop a comfort level with the weapons we are gifted with and realize their strengths… In game our weapons are the gun, bombs, some bonus weapons, our ability to run fast and jump high... Whereas, in life our weapons are our mind, creativity, persistence, patience, sharpness of mind and not to forget our thought process… In both life & contra we win if we feel we can… Positive attitude & will decides our destiny.

Now, when we are well versed with the weapons we have, we feel more confident to use them in any scenario, that is what we call experience in real life and new level in game. We might win the new level or we might realize we need to sharpen us and develop better grip over our strengths to pass through it…

Coming on to the similarities in brief as m getting late for office-


  •          In both, game & life we keep on running after earning…. Points & Money!
  •          In both, we are still running even after knowing the end is same for everyone…
  •          We don’t realize while playing/living that what matters is to enjoy the game/Life rather than just earning numbers/Money and taking stress
  •         Not always but many times we run our of energy/health in the race of earning more points and we don’t realize we waste whatever we earned when it comes to energy/health

Well, I guess I’ll come up with more similarities on this on sometime when I'll have no office day… 

But, one difference which I would love to mention is Life is any day better than a Contra game, In the game you get 3 chances after which your game is over… Here in life, you get a new chance every day to relive and change things… you cant undo many things but that’s what life is…. Look forward and change it for the better…

Change things which you don’t like, alter yourself if you think you need to…. Realize, its not over yet.. You have thousand things…. Miracles do happen….

And in the end, I would like to say-

Life is like a Disney movie... 

Miracles do Happen, Hard work pays even if its delayed, good people do exist, Luck favors the brave, there is always a villain... a king.. a prince and a princess and No one can ever change your destiny if you are real...

Appreciate Life and have Faith.. Get up and keep moving… you may not get these many chances in one game of contra, but you have many in real life… :-)

Now, I’ll also get up and get ready for my office….

Love you God.. Muaah :-)



Note- I’ll proof read it in evening! Till the time avoid the typos :P

Life is Beautiful :-)


Another beautiful day it is... And one more weekend where I can relax.

Today, when I got up in the morning.. I saw an email from a friend... I read it, loved it and it really contributed to my day.. Loads of optimism and hope to look forward to life no matter how tough it is going....

As they say- "When going gets tough, the tough gets going"

I would love to share the thoughts in the mail I received for the people who are in the phase I am right now... But, I am positive!

So, here it is-

A must read.......
Written By Regina Brett, 90 years old, of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland, Ohio

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most-requested column I've ever written.

My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone...

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends, family and parents will. Stay in touch.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first pay cheque.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear fancy clothes. Don't save it for a special occasion, today is special.

22. Over-prepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive everyone everything.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative '' dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

42. The best is yet to come.

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."


I wanna thank my friend for sharing it with me.

It gave me courage, motivation and hope to realize its life.. And no matter what "Life is Beautiful". 

Just hold on for some more time... God tests their favorite kids every now and then to make them stronger... 

Dear God, I'll pass this test too... Just be with me.. Love you! :-)

Rain Girl :-))


God, I love you… for creating nature, creating water and pouring down rain…. :D

The day started with a hot weather and clear sky… continuing with my daily routine… I went office… done with my last meeting in the eve…  at around 6pm…. Till the time the sun was shining bright and my car’s AC was in use….

I was as usual talking on fone while driving back home… all of a sudden… the sky went black and I could see sand in the wind… before I could reach back home it started raining heavily…. And, I dunno why I was craving to get wet in the rain today…

I never craved for it so strong lately in past few years… Talking on fone I said... I wish I could park my car on the road and enjoy rain… but then I controlled myself thinking that I don’t have any right to create a traffic jam here on the mid of the road :P

I quickly came back home, threw my stuff on bed and rushed to my terrace to enjoy the rain before it could stop…..

Aaah…. What a blissful feel it was… Amazing… I wish I could explain it in words…. After almost 10 years I enjoyed rain like this… for 40 mins I was getting drenched in the rain…. Looking around on the empty roads…. Dark and beautiful sky…. Green, fresh, wet trees and grass…. The spark in the clouds…. Feeling the drops of water on my face….. The air in my wet hair and clothes… I was shivering with cold…. Simply I loved it t o the core…. It was indeed one of the finest pleasures of nature….The most amazing feel of the month :D…..

I am feeling really very happy today… :D

Thank you God for giving me this life and my people…. I love you… Please take care of my loved ones…. And keep pouring water from the sky… :D 

Muuaaaah :-)))

P.S.- This all happened yesterday, written yesterday... Posted today..:D

I am Back!

Lately, I realized my past few posts were inclined towards negativity…  That’s so not me!

I never even realized when my vibrant positive blog went inside the tunnel of darkness… No no no! That’s just not cool!

My love Pearl, I m really sorry dear for being such a dumb emo girl... :P

I m God’s favorite… I can’t be so sad…. No, I just can’t afford to be... there are troubles, but that’s how a Disney Movie is scripted…. A princess fights never cribs!

No one can win the battle without problems and difficulties… And problems are highest when something good is destined to happen…  As they say, “The darkest Hour is just before the dawn”

So, here I am… pulling myself back from the darkness towards the ray of light…..

Recently, I came across very interesting people & many amazing things happened but the irony is I cannot mention them here publicly as of now…. Although, I’ll come up with it very soon…. I am more than excited to share!

Life is going good and I can actually feel some difference in my mental set up… I feel…. I m more intelligent now… LOL :D

Jokes apart, on a serious note, yes… I have changed a bit for better… but, I still need to catch up with my fitness routine…

I watched almost all new movies… Loved Ranbir in “Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani”…. Movie-wise I liked “Fukre”…. Hated “Raanjhana” to the core!

It’s being long since I've tried cooking something new in kitchen…. Luckily, my coming weekend will be free so I’ll try my hands on something creative in kitchen…. :D

Missing my friends a lot… I feel miserable at times when I am not able to talk to them or see them…

Let see, how things will shape in coming sometime…. I am looking forward for something major to happen… ;-)

God, you are needed… badly needed… No matter wherever you are… whatever you are doing… I need you…. Pleeeaaaase…. :-)

Please God… Help me…. And.. yes, I am sorry for not listening to you.. I am in trouble now and I seriously need you… And I know you'll certainly be there as always.... 

Take care of my loved ones… I Love you… Muaah…. :-))

Working Weekend!

“Oh No! Another working weekend”

This is one thought which usually never bother me… Being a workaholic… I love working… But, I guess after 20 days of work without a single break, I now understand my mom’s words- “Beta, rest bhi toh zaroori hai”… when the tiredness is ruling all over me…

I so wish companies should understand this… On the other hand I feel, Indian companies & Indian people will never understand the concept of ‘rejuvenation’…  Where people are normal human bodies that needs rest physically as well as mentally…

Looking back, professionally, 

I was picked from campus by my first organization, where I used to work 365 days round the clock…. But, then, I had flexibility of taking rest…. My boss was considerate enough to give me that liberty of taking a break… Still, life was tough... without Saturdays off and unofficially working Sundays…. My social life was limited only inside office…I still loved it... 

My second job was a bit stable…. Fix 6 days working, sometimes Sundays too… very fix timings…. But nightmares should not be recalled… :P

Coming on to my present job… I like the place where I work… I like my work… I like the culture… though there are always certain positives and negatives about every place…. But *touchwood* it’s more of positives there… The only thing I hate the most is working weekends without any comp off….

I dunno why companies don’t understand making employees work for 2 weeks without a break will never improve their business or performance instead it will further result in slow and poor results with employee dissatisfaction and higher attrition rate… A happy employee can work more efficiently, and one day off in a week is everyone's right..

I m so tired… given a day off, I’ll only sleep for 20-25 hours… My mind is tired… My routine is all disturbed... My personal tasks which I try to finish after office are still half pending… My family needs my time, every second day my mom or my bhai asks “Tu kab free hogi, kab we can go for this or that” :-(…. I haven’t met my friends from long time, usually when they ask “Are you free on sat/sun”…. My reply is “Event hai” … And for God, you know better... what not….

I need sleep... I never thought I'll say it so publicly but yes, I need SLEEP! I need REJUVENATION, a short break.. A small escape to an isolated place... :-(

Dear God, lets catch up soon someday... After office of course! Love you.. ;-)


P.S.- This post was purely written with a Saturday morning mindset, with a ‘working weekend ahead'  feel!

'No Money' day-out!



After a long long time I am coming back on my blog with a realization happened JLT… :-)

Though I miss writing terribly… I rarely write it down now a days… I think I should restart writing my filmy life & its happenings  :P

Yesterday was just another day…. I got up… cooked food (which wasn’t very usual though)…. Got ready for office… And left for my meeting directly…while driving I saw a shop where they sell one of the finest cakes in town… It tempted me and I decided to buy one for myself…. I was driving and talking on fone… I turned my car towards the shop and parked… Moment I was about to get down of my car I realized I left my wallet home… LOL

It wasn't a ‘LOL’ moment though…. I was kinda shocked…. I was almost 50 kms away from home on an isolated planet… crossed Toll roads… Without any further option I started my car and looked around how much money I had in form of coins and change… I counted, it was 70 Rupees…

Calculation started in my mind… 20 for parking, 25 for toll and rest miscellaneous…. Have you ever realized we feel like eating something special on the day when we can’t actually buy it…. :P

Talking to myself, I reached for my meeting… The office was in a mall... I parked my car…. And finished my meeting…. Then I saw McDs… I never crave for their food on normal days…. But yesterday it was a craving… I recounted my money and realized I had 30 bucks extra… I decided to buy a burger… :P

Their burger never tasted so good ever in my life… I relished it.. And left for my other meeting which was in the other corner of Delhi…. Luckily my home was on the way… I picked up my wallet and continued my day…. But, in that short time I actually relived my school days… where money used to be so limited and we used to save 5 Rs as well…. Today, if I look at myself…. Or even people around me…. No one bothers about it…. We earn & throw…

Life changed so much…. Still some change saved my ‘HALF DAY’ :P

God, Love you… Give me strength and be with me.. Muaah.. :-)

Deception!



"One of the worst feelings in the world is the feeling of being cheated by someone you trusted.."

As we grow up we meet different kinda people... We see different faces... We learn from them... 
Some people actually come close to us and on the other hand some just pretend to be so...

The worst feeling ever is to realize that someone you considered very close to you deceived you very badly...
I m going through a similar feeling right now...

A feeling where I realized I was being a fool from past few months... I really dunno what pleasure people get in doing such things... Winning and breaking faith like a toy of glass...

In past also such things happened though they were not this bad but then I coped up with them may be because that was the time when I was close to my friends and we used to meet on daily basis... And they helped me to come out of it... 

But, someone truly said- "Sometimes the wrong persons teach us the right lessons in life"

Today as well, I have certain very good friends but they are not around me... So today when I find myself struck in this situation I truly understand how difficult and deadly life can ever be...

Trust me God, I m seriously very upset with you on this and I need time to come out of it... But, then, I am thankful to you for teaching me this...! Your li'l favorite kid Loves you :)) Muaah

Recover. Gain Strength. Rejuvenate. BOUNCE BACK!


I am trying to understand what is going on in my mind from past few weeks…. I am in a state of a strange dilemma… kinda suffering… trying super hard to come out of it!

I am being anti-social, destructive, restless, careless, unreasonable, emotionally unavailable, ignorant, cruel, rude and crazy!

It’s a part of me and I don’t mind being so…. But then… the changes in me are scaring me… It’s affecting my work out routine… my professional performance… personal life… and every damn thing!

Whenever, I find myself moving towards darkness and negativity I recall Spiderman III… Where I find negative powers all over me… Ruling my Heart & Mind!

As they say… Life is all about changes and phases…. This is also a phase.. The world is my playground… I am a player who is not in the best form at present but yes, I’ll certainly be fine….

Many good things did happen in last few days… I got my new car… And I am loving it… Though I still love my old one the most…. May be I am fond of the ‘first love thing’…. First job… first car… first home…. First…. Are always very close to my heart and soul…

I guess all I need is… a rejuvenating weekend outing... starting with a long long drive… without phone and net… all alone…. Isolation therapy is good at times…. I need to be alone…. Just me... my coffee… my camera… my running…. Myself!

I need to be with me… I feel I am running from myself… I don’t give a damn to people who don’t matter to me… but I am really concerned about certain people…. I think that’s what is bothering me like hell..

I wanna indulge in all good things where I can recharge myself back.... bring me back on track… I wanna listen to myself… Wanna spend time with my inner self… Together we’ll have good time… long walks, music, coffee, dark chocolates, photography… blogging, running.. And much more….

Dear God, please give me strength and guide me in the right direction…. I need you to be with me…. Your girl is missing you... Love you...
