Dichotomy of life .................

Sometimes a facial expression hurts you more than a physical wound,

Your own people become devils and life looks so cruel .

Times change and .........

A healing word acts as a medicine,

A simple smile gives you a way of life,

A feeling of trust becomes your confidence,

Friends become angels and life becomes very sweet,

Such is the dichotomy of life and we should accept it as it comes.

Amazing Picture

I was hopping through the net when I fell upon this picture. This is a dandy example of antithesis- a juxtaposition of contrasting ideas. The little girl is an epitome of light-hearted playfulness and the sculpture represents old aged brooding meditation. It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words and there can be nothing more true.:-)

A Forever Friend

Sometimes in life
you find a special friend;
Someone who changes your life
just by being part of it.

Someone who makes you laugh
until you can't stop;
Someone who makes you believe
that there really is good in the world.
Someone who convinces you
that there really is an unlocked door
just waiting for you to open it.
This is Forever Friendship.

When you're down,
and the world seems dark and empty,
Your forever friend lifts you up in spirit
and makes that dark and empty world
suddenly seem bright and full.

Your forever friend gets you through
the hard times, the sad times,
and the confused times.
If you turn and walk away,
your forever friend follows.
If you lose your way,
your forever friend guides you
and cheers you on.

Your forever friend holds your hand
and tells you that
everything is going to be okay.
And if you find such a friend,
you feel happy and complete,
because you need not worry.
You have a forever friend for life,
and forever has no end.

Inquisitiveness- A behavorial disorder

Every relationship thrives and survives on keeping some distance. This is the life and breath of every surviving creature. Even young saplings need some distance to germinate and grow. Some people don't seem to understand this basic fact. Or may be I am wrong, they understand it very well when this applies to themselves but it is a different story when it applies to others. Every damn silly detail about others must be known. Why? Just for fun and common knowledge. Please understand some feelings, facts and issues are private affair and should not be pried into. And even so of a person with whose life you are remotely connected. This is beyond every realm of civility.
These habits unnerve me a lot and I am sure it would to some of you too.

A beautiful Gift

Every Tuesday and Friday I go to the library to work as a volunteer. My volunteering work is a good exercise in mixing with people here and knowing the people of my community. The library is one of the many public libraries that we have in different communities here and it is well attended by the people.During the weekdays you find it full with older and retired guys playing chess with their friends and the women exhibiting their knitting skills. In the evening hours it is packed with school children who come to finish their homework.
Because you often get to see the same faces I have started to develop a bond with them.There are some kids that have yet to discover the magic of reading and I work with them as a story time buddy. And by all means it is great fun. Yesterday the kids in turn narrated their stories to me as a fun gesture on my birthday and it was awesome. There are small gestures in this world that sometimes bring upon you great happiness. Isn't that amazing ? :-)

Little deeds of kindness,

little words of love,
make our earth an Eden,
like the heaven above.

The world is falling apart

People say it has never been so bad in their living memory. Entire cities and communities have been affected. And the learned analysts say that it has just began and the end is nowhere to be seen. The recession that started in mid 2008 has now taken the shape of an epidemic. A single mom that I met in the library today was let go from her work yesterday. I could hear her sobbing and later when I talked to her she said that she is supporting her two kids and has to hit the street again job searching in an environment where there are no jobs and scores of laid off job seekers. What can be more awful than this ? Media is adding to the frenzy by continuously airing the most pessimistic and negative numbers that are available. These are the same guys who an year before had no clue of what was about to happen? Charities and food banks are being robbed of their already dwindling contributions. As a student I am not sure of what the future has in store for me. But I hope the best for me and the other people around.

A Bundle Of Feelings

I was going through my old posts and realized that each post has an anecdotal association. Old friends, emotions and memories begin to linger as I went through each and every post. All of them were a window to a distinct past that has gone by. I saw myself evolving and learning through my experiences and interactions with fellow bloggers. My blogger friends are an important part as they appreciated and encouraged me through their insightful comments. Although I don't know them in person but I have begin to attach a personality to each of these by reading their comment and their own blog. In a way it is very interesting how without meeting in person you can appreciate the tastes, likes and dislikes and psyche of fellow bloggers. These relationships are based
on our thoughts and ideas and transcends normal human relationships which are often based on origin, color, sex and appearances. And I think that is amazing.:-)
