Goodbye

People say that goodbyes are always painful….whether its for the good or otherwise….we are lucky we can choose people we want to have in our lives but we may not always be able to make them stay forever….sometimes you just have to thank God that you were able to meet them in your journey of life…experience things differently that you may not have been able to experience otherwise…..

There are some people who touch our lives in such a way that we are never ever the same again…these are the kind of people you want to have around you at all times…come happiness or sorrow..they will stand by you…in good times and bad like an Oak tree…like they say…hare ek dost jaruri hota hain”…similarly you need to have all kinds of people in your life…who teach you different things at different points of time….they just stick with you no matter what….

Sometimes you have to let go of people in your life because they are like parasites and just draw on your energy..and will not move out of your life unless you shake them out of your life….Its a tough to let go of people you dearly love….but sometimes you have to make those choices for your own good….

There are times when we know we may never meet the person again…there are some that we may meet again…but the feeling is never the same again…

Is there a guide to overcome the sadness of Goodbyes?..I don’t know if there is one..all  I know is that everything happens for a reason…there is a reason why you and I exist…there is reason why you and I are where we are in this point of life….like Shakespeare rightly said “All worlds a stage”.  People leave footprints in our hearts,,,some will tear us apart….but in all this we grow as people we draw on a strength we never knew existed within us…we realize that we can fly solo…

What I learnt is that Goodbyes and Farewells are not meant to be painful..they can just be a new beginning to a new world..that we didn’t know existed..so stop mopping around and start looking for the silver lining in the cloud…..look for the new challenges…and new opportunities…life is too short too live in the past and it is pointless worrying about the future because it is a mirage…so go on make the most of the present…

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back than it is yours; if it doesn’t it never was…..

Its Raining….

What about the rains you say???? There is magic..there is nostalgia…there is fun…and its simply amazing…when it rains..after a heavy shower if you are luck you will even see a rainbow!!!!!!

Love the smell of wet mud of the first rains…nothing comparable to the smell in the air…the cool woooshy breeze…the flaying of the trees, rustling of the leaves beckoning for the rain to pour…and flying of the birds to get some shelter….the atmosphere just before the rains is amazing they work in tandem…before there is a down pour of heavy showers…raindrops start falling slowly…almost as if teasing the parched ground…the breeze dances to the tune of the rain as the dust rises up from the mud and goes around in circle almost calling you to join them in the rhythmic rain dance…then there is a clap of thunder….and heavens open….and there is the shower of raindrops all around you leading to torrential rain…creating puddles all around you….and when you thought that its all complete and everything is over…there is lightening. And I remind myself that its almost like God clicking  a Kodak moment at all of us…no matter where we are enjoying the rain….suddenly there is blaring of horn..and smashing of brakes….and I am snapped out of my sweet moment of enjoying nature ….and brought back to the ruthless realty everyday of life..just in time to see bikers skid on the road….I close my eyes and go back to my rain….sail my boat in the puddle and looking forward to enjoy garam chai and hot pakodas!!!!!

Enjoy the rains for what it is….simple and pure… 🙂

Raindrops keep fallin’ on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin’ seems to fit
Those raindrops are fallin’ on my head, they keep fallin’

So I just did me some talkin’ to the sun
And I said I didn’t like the way he got things done
Sleepin’ on the job
Those raindrops are fallin’ on my head, they keep fallin’

But there’s one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won’t defeat me
It won’t be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep fallin’ on my head
But that doesn’t mean my eyes will soon be turnin’ red
Cryin’s not for me
‘Cause I’m never gonna stop the rain by complainin’
Because I’m free
Nothin’s worryin’ me
