A Gathering

Saturday, 19:07

A scarlet colored sun is about to set and here I am in a park close by the swimming pool center. My friend called me and told that few of his friends are here today and he wants a gathering. My friend and the guys I was told about were already seated at the place and were enjoying themselves, I also joined them. 🙂

After few talks and rewind of memories, a guy came up with some questions. 😉 I heard from my friend that this guy is a good observant. The questions were about sharing your thoughts. It sounded extremely great activity.

And he started, 😉

First question came up for a guy who’s exceptionally funny. 😀 He makes everyone laugh. He was asked, ‘What is the one thing you’re trying extremely hard to accept?’ 😉 He looked at the observant and said, ‘at the moment.. you!!’ 😀 Everyone chuckle and then he answered ‘Hard to accept that life is too short not to have the perfect coffee and haircut you want.’ 😀

The next question to a other person, ‘If you want to write a note for yourself, what it would be?’ Uncommonly he replied, ‘at 17 or 21, nobody is worth stressing over. Leave people behind, move on. It is time to find yourself, the world is yours and.. life goes on.’ This was marvelous thought to make a note of. 🙂

It was my turn now. 😛 I was asked, ‘A type of mistake which you would never want to do?’ I took a couple of seconds and said, ‘I could never cheat on anyone. It’s a wrong doing I couldn’t live with. Knowing that you destroy someone’s trust is bad, but destroying someone’s perspective on love is far too worse.’ 🙂

Another question was thrown to the funny guy, ‘If you want to gift a book to your friend sitting next to you. What will be the book named?’ He laughed at the question first. 😀 He knows the person next to him very well. He shortly replied, ‘:D How to start a conversation to make friends. Very much he is in need of this.’ 😀

The last question was asked to my friend who was just listening to everyone’s thoughts.
The question to him was, ‘Tell one of the worst part of not being friends with someone anymore?’.
All of a sudden the smile was lost. 😐 I was aware of the condition he was in the recent past. He didn’t looked at anyone and it appeared that he was dragged back in memories. He answered, ‘One of the worst part is you cannot talk to them. You cannot tell them all the little things you used to share with them. You cannot tell them as they are no longer part of your life. It is sad because you used to tell them everything but now you can’t and it is weird.’ 😦

To ease out the serious faces around, he brought back the smile on his face and pretended that everything is all right. The other guys also got relieved after seeing the smile back on his face. How easily he managed to convince his mates who were unaware of his state. It is explainable that people smile to hide pain, sometimes people laugh to hide the tears.

A smile can hide so much pain. 😐

A Indian Snack – Jhaal Muri/Bhel Puri

Welcome to India,

Here we are on the streets of Mumbai in search of a Indian snack, and also a type of Chaat. It’s called Bhelpuri, often identified with the beaches of Juhu in Mumbai.  It is made out of puffed rice, vegetables and a tangy sauce. The recipe has spread to most parts of India where it has been modified to suit local food availability.

The Kolkata Variant of Bhelpuri is called Jhaal Muri. Jhaal Muri (Spicy Puffed Rice) is Bengali cuisine, a dry variant of Bhelpuri and is consumed after garnishing with onions, coriander and lemon juice. I think you are feeling hungry now. 😀

Bhelpuri and Jhaal Muri belongs to the food family of chaats, which are salty and spicy snacks sold on carts throughout India. Bhelpuri has a typically Gujarati (Gujarat) balance of sweet, salty, tart and spicy flavors, with different textures as well, including crispy and crunchy from the puffed rice.

Bhelpuri can be served in many ways, but it is usually served in a paper folded in the form of a cone and is consumed using a paper spoon or by the ‘papdi’ which is itself an edible component of the ‘Bhelpuri’. ❤

Jhaal Muri/Bhelpuri can beat the packet of chips which you take for snacks costing nearly same or even less with vibrant taste.

I Love You means

I LOVE YOU means that I accept you for the person that you are and that I do not wish to change you into someone else. It means the I do not expect perfection from you- just as you do not expect it from me.

It means that I will love you and stand by you even through the worst of the times. It means loving you when you are in bad mood or too tired to do the things I want to do. It means loving you when you’re down – not just when you’re fun to be with.

‘I Love You’ means that I know your deepest secrets and do not judge you for them – asking only in return that you do not judge me for mine. It means that I care enough to fight for what we have and that I love enough not to let go.

It means thinking of you, dreaming of you, wanting and needing you constantly, and hoping that you feel the same way for me.. 🙂

A new Month – September

New Month comes around 12 times a year. What better reminder to tell your friends and family you are thinking about them.

As we enter a new month, we should know that we can have a new beginning. If we feel our time up until this point has been wasted, we should remember that every new day, every new month is a time to start all over again. We can turn over a new leaf every hour if we choose to. And things can change. Things will change. Just stay focused and look up to the person in the mirror once.

Have a great month.. Happy September 🙂

Let’s have Fun with Google :D

Google, you must have come across the internet giant while surfing on the net. In our day to day life we use Google, mostly the Google search to find our question’s answers.  Sometimes I also use Google to know whether my internet working or not!! I think Google is most searched page over the Internet. It’s close to us because it has answers to most of our question.

Today, I thought to do something funny on Google & I found few tricks by which we can have fun. I think many of you must be knowing about the tricks but I would like to share few of the tricks which I have come across.

1) do a barrel roll – If you have nothing better to do, type “do a barrel roll” into the Google search engine. You will come across that the webpage takes a spin. It was one of the trick which i used to do most when i came across it.

2) tilt – If the first trick entertains you, then you will definitely enjoy this one too. Type “tilt” in the Google search box. You will see that the screen is slightly tilted.

3) zerg rush” – This one is amazing. Search “zerg rush“, after the search completes within a second a lot “O’s” will fall from the top of the page & will start to eat up the search results. You need to kill those invaders and make score which is reflected on the upper right quarter. This is a reference to the video game StarCraft.

4) Atari Breakout” – If you are getting bored this will definitely make your mood slightly better. Search “Atari Breakout” and then click on the images section and just wait for a second as Google prepare’s a game for you. It’s Breakout which we used to play in our old Gaming console’s.

5) google gravity” – Type “Google Gravity” in the Google search engine. Then, open the first link with heading “Google Gravity -Mr. Doop” then see the whole page  crumbles. Or type in “Google gravity” – and hit “I’m feeling lucky on the search page if your Instant predictions are not working.

So, I got these tricks which were easy & much more interesting. If you find more tricks then share with us in the comment section.

“There is so much more we can do on Google”

“Rain”

Sometimes how amazing it is, few little things which freshens you up and boost you with a lot of energy. Few things cannot be explained because you can only feel it, deep their in your heart, from your mind it touches your soul.

It’s the beginning of Monsoon here in Delhi, India. Monsoon has arrived late as per the India Meteorological Department but at last the wait is over. The play between sun & clouds begins and clouds pour some rain on the heated surface.

For me at times God is cloud from where the rain fell as blessings. I have always enjoyed the rain because rain cleanses the nature and looks absolutely beautiful. Walking outside in rain is great and makes me feel alive. The feeling is just awesome, the breeze around feels romantic and the clean atmosphere without any pollution seems beautiful.

I remember the childhood days, Ah! I remember those days when we used to tear apart a full school assignment notebooks and end up preparing boats of all sizes and shapes. Many a time, i used to lose those boat race, but indeed it used to be amazing how much we used to enjoy.

How we used to jump in the puddles, without thinking about our dress and just jump. The sound which it used  to make and even the rain pouring down makes a soothing sound. I remember how i used to move my bicycle swiftly on places where the rain water stayed and the water used to scatter from both the side of the wheel.

These days i find it rains less, i think we should start to thank god whenever it rains. Earlier it was never like this, it used to rain three four times a month. But things have changed and so do the earth because of so much damage humans have done to it.

I always used to get confused with the smell of the soil when it used to rain, people used to rejoice that smell and telling that its beautiful. I never felt like it’s beautiful, it just not that good of a fragrance.

I hope everyone of us will forget about all the worries and just enjoy the weather of rain and feel how special we are that we can enjoy these moments.

Innocent droplets of rain.. Make almost all events.. Quite natural.
