Coming back home…

Have you ever realized how conveniently we don’t realize what a luxury it is in one’s life to have someone waiting for you at home and opening the door and welcoming you back to your place at the end of a day full of struggle and tiredness…

Well, you might think this is not worth a mention in the blog but I do believe that if you have such people in your life then you belong to the club of lucky people who are blessed to have such wonderful people around who are more concerned about you and would bother to hear about how your day actually was, was it good or was it bad, did you meet anyone that you like or if somebody appreciated your work or got you really pissed off…

You might not have thought about your day this way but they care to hear it from you, advice you guide you or atleast hear you speak your heart out so that you feel better.

You eventually start realizing how important it is to have ‘your people’ around who add more value to the days that you spend with them rather staying alone in your separate space…

I guess the day we realize this is the day we can consider ourselves amongst grown ups…

I was never a kind of person who would get affected by such gestures but yes I started missing these small things and started appreciating how wonderful it is to actually live with your family, have them around you, see them take care of you, love you, nourish you and even doubling your joys and taking away all your sorrows and frustration that you have in life since the time I came here and stay here for my job…

Yes it’s true that everyone loves to have their space and doesn’t want anyone to interfere in their business but this I, me and myself attitude feels good for few months after which you wish to have your family around to love you, care for you and sometimes even irritate you with all kind of their experience lectures and only you could wish is to see them everyday, tell them about your day and see how their little ways makes you feel elated and special no matter how your life and days are going…

Late but yet a happy realization today is that you will always urge to come back to a place where you have your people around who makes you feel the warmth of their affection and love which you would call ‘feeling home’ and this is how it all matters afterall…

Trust and memories…

Memories____________

It is something that makes you remember when you want to forget everything…

It fills up your mind and heart when you want space or want to isolate yourself for a while from the world…

It is the feeling that you get which warms your heart or take you back to the cold December nights…

It is the warmth that you feel thinking about your family…

It’s your only friend in disguise and lone time…

It is what can make you cry and smile both at the same time…

It is a treasure that you cherrish or a burden that you carry for your life…

It’s what makes you want to believe in forever happiness and it’s the same thing that may let you want to end everything in a moment…

It is something that makes you happy when you are about to cry or one where it makes you feel miserable while you are happy for a while…

It makes you want to live an eternity with the person you love if those are the one that makes you feel like living more…

One thing that never changes in your little world is the memories that you have irrespective of it being pleasant or a worst nightmare, memories may be of a person, place or the way you felt sometimes no matter what you do or say… So yes it’s natural if you would trust your memory with a person, place or thing more than what they themselves or people around may say about them…

Kala ghoda art festival- 2020

Since the time I’ve shifted to Mumbai, I’ve found myself finding out and going to various art festival and fleas that this city is well known to organize to have a change from the daily 9 to 6 routine. Little did I know that it would become a thing that I cherrish and like to explore. Well one and our every year legacy is to never miss the KGAF organized in CST the very heart of the city.

To introduce it I would say Kala Ghoda festival has been organised for the past 21 years. Kala Ghoda Arts Festival, known as India’s oldest street festival for arts, theatre and cinema, which gives some extraordinary talents a platform to showcase what they create as their passion and pursue this as a profession to earn a living by promoting and selling what they create. Well it’s quite overwhelming to see how people think out of the box, and create such a wonderful models to exhibit which has a social message associated with it .

The festival has an international reputation and has witnessed an increase in people’s participation manifold over the years from not only India but all accross the globe. Yes, while you walk down the street you’ll find many people from different countries trying to explore what the exhibitors have to showcase as a specimen of their arts in their own stalls. The initiative is a call for support to carry forward the festival’s legacy in preserving Mumbai’s cultural heritage.

The models and the art exhibits that have been exhibited in the art festival is indeed a visual treat for those who would like to spend time or their weekend understanding, appreciating and encouraging various artforms that are hard to find in this city’s busy and hustle and bustle life…

Date: February 1st – February 9th, 2020

If you are an admirer of art or a regular CST visitor I would definitely recommend you to spare some time to come here and visit this wonderful art and cultural legacy festival of Mumbai for this edition

About time types…

After the end of this long and busy first month of 2020 and the onset of February a thought kind of popped up into my mind and I thought of jotting it down for a reason in this blog which is – Have you ever noticed something amazingly weird about time. Even though we know that everybody have same amount of time in a day which is 24hrs but does that mean everyone feel the same about how long a day is for them. Well if that was difficult to figure out let me put it this way-

There might have been days when you might have felt like time is not passing at all or you wonder is it even has come to a still point(of course that means time is passing deadly slow) where time seems to have almost stopped passing or even you might have felt it a task to like actually spend an hour… Well this happens basically when you feel sad or you wait for something amazing to happen in life from your whole heart and soul that would actually change your life forever for good!

Time definitely waits for none but do you make it precious for yourself each passing moment?

Also there might be days when you feel that you are not able to seize the moment of the time that is running so fast like in a moment here and there a you’ll see a whole week passing by. This is what you might feel especially when you are late for some important event and when you are having a good and happy phase in you life which you want to seize and never let go of it!

So for every person time is associated with their state of mind and the phase in life that they are going through… Means basically it all boils down to the way you are feeling or should I say your psychological state. Don’t you find this relatable with everybody. So well, yes time is same for everybody but the way you feel or the way you look at it and make it precious is what counts and makes a difference…🙂

Every exit is an entry to a place more beautiful…

Well as we enter into this year of 2020, I came across a thought which said how will the new year be. I felt it was kind of mixed feeling, a little excited for what this new year bring to me but more than that I was a little anxious of a new beginning that it might bring in (since last year was hell kind of rollercoaster with all the lows that one could probably feel).

Getting attached to people, place and things is what is human tendency, no one can control it or even avoid it no matter who you think you are or how strong you are if you think and reflect on yourself will you realize that yes you are indeed attached to something or the other in life. This is a basic human nature to get attached to any person, place or thing that makes them happy or that can bring them joy in life which may be momentary or maybe lifelong.

Well getting attached to something is so easy but to dettach yourself from that thing is difficult and way beyond our control. There is no filter through which your heart can gauge if what you are getting attached to is good for you or will hurt you like hell in future but we anyways get attached emotionally.

So once you are attached to some place or something it becomes really difficult to exit or to give it up even if you realize how important is it for you to move out of it and move on in life. Little do we realize then that every end or every exit is an entry to a new beginning, to a new experience, to a new place, or to new people in life. It’s kind of a new page or new chapter being added to you life book.

Life is full of expected and unexpected surprises which comes along with time, you just need to give yourself a push towards this new somewhere for a new beginning and embrace whatever comes on your way wholeheartedly…

Cheers to new beginnings of 2020…!

Life…

Sometimes it’s as happy and blissful as spring, sometimes it’s as cold and harsh as a December night…sometimes it’s like still water in the lake while sometimes it’s like a river gushing down the mountain cutting through the huge rocks…. well is life that easy to be understood in your mind..?

I always try to simplify things in life so that it is under my control but is it how it is supposed to be? Well would you appreciate living if life becomes so easy. Difficulties do test you, try to provokes you to loose your calm and act wrongly spontaneously which you might regret for rest of your life. It tries to break you, test your will power, the stability of your motives in life but how you overcome these difficulties by your own little ways is what you see when you look back in life and recollect all the past memories. These situations becomes your a treasure of your experience.

But have you ever thought about living a day without any trouble or difficulties in life. Well that is indeed to much to imagine about but yes if you try to think about it you’ll definitely agree with me that it won’t be worth living or even worth mentioning to anyone.

Defining life is complex sometimes it’s easy for some people but might be hard for some other people at the same time. It’s the matter of prospective how you look upon it that differs from person to person. Some may accept it and grow while other may take it as a burden, run from it and get faded away.

Merry Christmas…

When we think about Christmas what is the first thought that cross our mind- is it how would we decorate our Christmas tree this year, or is it which Christmas carol would I like to sing or listen to, or what secret santa gifts am I suppose to get this year or what should I donate to orphanage or old age home to brighten up their Christmas.

Well everyone would relate to this as much as I do, after all it is true that happiness that Christmas brings to your heart is mutual amongst everyone but it’s true as well that Christmas might mean different to different people.

Christmas is the time of year when you look back in time and reflect on how was this year for you.

It’s time of the year when you make plans to spend a wonderful time with your family and friends, to create wonderful memories that you would keep as souvenirs for rest of your lives.

The thing about Christmas is that it almost doesn’t matter what mood you’re in or what kind of a year you’ve had – it’s a fresh start… Merry Christmas folks!🌠🎁🌲
