Arrggh confusion!

Okay this post ain’t by me. I read it somewhere and it’s exactly what i think. So i decided to share it.

So another post by a crazy cricket fan.
Actually more of a ramble.
Now tell me something, what’s the point of having a new rule, if the umpires are going to be too scared to enforce it? Are they just doing it for the show? Are they just doing it to confuse the cricketers? To confuse the viewers?
Now something controversial happened between Aus. Vs Ind one-day match, 26/02/12.
There is a new rule, Batsman obstructing the field. That’s pretty much that if a batsman is found blocking a ball from reaching the wicket keeper, or a potential run-out from happening, the captain can appeal for an out. And it’s meant to be an out. David Hussey, blocked off the ball with his glove – note. His freaking hand!!
And Dhoni naturally appealed for an out.
It was an out.
The crowd thought so.
The umpires thought so.
Heck even David Hussey had that stupid expression on his face which said, “shit I am out”.
But the stupid, stupid, stupid Third Umpire, was an absolute pussy. And decided to not give Hussey an out because of stupid, stupid “team spirit”.
How about when India is batting, you don’t give Sachin an out? Because c’mon, team spirit is amazing, right Umpire?
Stupid Third Umpire.

Facade!

She was loved by all. Everyone wanted to be with her. She was vibrant in nature. Good company to be with. She never knew hurting others or so she thought. She wanted people to be happy. It made her happy. But making everyone happy is not possible. Only if she knew this. So the one’s she couldn’t make happy thought of her as biased. Maybe true. There were a few she absolutely loved to see happy. Her heart soared high in happiness when she saw them happy. So she tried more for them. But in process some were ignored, never intentionally. Though not on purpose, people were hurt. Hearts grew apart. Some of them. That’s when she felt it. The distance, the heartache. She felt it all. She didn’t know what went wrong. She could sense people drifting away. She tried stopping them only separating the already distant hearts. She was accused. She tried to explain, she failed. She tried to match up, she failed. Maybe trying too much was the problem. But she couldn’t help it. She never wanted this. It broke her. But there were those who still loved her. They supported her. She needed it. Seeing people who once loved her, who she loved, loathing her, blaming her wasn’t easy to live with. But then there were those who cared for her, genuinely. She needed them. She could survive seeing them happy. She would be the way she is, for them. She just existed, pretending to live. Pretending for those who loved her. Pretending to be happy. She thought it was easier, easier than admitting that she was sad. That would require reasons and explanations, leading to more heartache. No. Pretending to be happy is easy. Yet sometimes the pretence fades, revealing the real her. She cries. Sometimes its okay to let the tears flow, she feels. But she soon gets back to pretending. She hopes and wishes that maybe someday she’ll be so perfect at pretence that she might actually end up being happy.

Happy Valentine’s :) :)

My romantic-self will be deeply hurt if I resist posting today. There will be numerous posts, some happy about Valentine’s Day, some sad, some supporting it, some opposing it. For me it’s an opportunity to celebrate love. And no opportunity to celebrate love should go waste. None at all. I know people say that everyday should be celebrated as a Vday. But our busy lives won’t let us, so this day gives us a chance to make up for all those times we could not give our loved ones the attention they deserved. I seriously don’t know what exactly do I post because I have never had a valentine on Valentine’s Day. So I can only imagine what can happen. Of course even friends can celebrate it but that’s totally different. I personally believe this day is for the one you love and wish to grow old with and we all have that soul mate destined for us (big believer in the above mentioned fact just like Madhuri from Dil Toh Pagal Hai). Since I haven’t met mine I don’t know how it feels. But then I can at least pass a message to him through this post that please make it quick 😀 I mean who knows, he might be reading this 🙂 🙂
I would also share a sweet incident. My munchkin (age 10) has her own definition of Valentine’s Day. I was talking to mom about VDay plans, she comes and asks what we were discussing. I told her it’s about Vday and I’ll explain her later. She pulled me down to her height and told ‘I know what that is, you need not explain’. I was too shocked at being pulled already and it looked like she won’t let me go till she proved that she knows. So I asked her ‘What’s it about?’. ‘It’s the Day on which Mom gifts Dad and Dad gifts mom’ she answered, proud of herself. I couldn’t help but smile at the innocent answer she had given. The smile was short-lived. The next question she asked turned smile into shock. She questioned me why was I making Vday plans because she was sure that I had no husband. I thought of explaining her what all exactly Vday meant but then thought better off it. She will know it soon going by the maturity she already has, so why spoil her innocence?! 🙂 🙂

You are missed!

In this journey of life, we meet numerous people. This line, how much ever philosophical it may sound, is so true. As the years pass by, our acquaintances increase. We meet so many people. Some are with us for a long time yet make no impression, some for a short while leaving a permanent imprint on our hearts. Some we wish would stay longer in our lives. There may be many reasons because of which we lose people as we move on. Change in career options, busy lives, sometimes you must have not been able to maintain touch, sometimes that other friend is too busy to answer, sometimes due to change of residence, sometimes due to fights, sometimes due to death. We have lost many people. Blame it to immaturity, distances, situations, ego, destiny, whatever be it, its consequences have been borne by our hearts.
All the bitter-sweet memories locked up in various shelves of our hearts that open up automatically at the mention of something even slightly familiar and leaving us all dazed. Sometimes making us happy while other times causing an ache in the heart which we think had just started to subside. Funny how only after we have done all acts, acting in impulse, hurrying through decisions, sometimes over delaying them, and faced its consequences do we realize that we were so wrong in them. Regret them. Sometimes the acts can be rectified, other times we lose. We lose a friend, a relation that meant more than anything but we only come to realize it too late.
So this post is to all my such friends, right since school. I miss you all and regret not being a part of your life and not having you in my own. I had many friends in school but now due to different choices made we are separated. But the memories are intact. Then during my junior and senior college days I made many friends. After the college got over, I realised there are a few people I dearly miss and should have been in touch with. I am on the verge of completion of a course I took up and again the same ache of separation and that feeling of emptiness is creeping in. How much ever we promise to stay in touch, busy lives, stupid ego and changing priorities won’t let us 😦 😦 And as a matter of fact we all know, life will go on. It has to. May be a little less nice, but it will go on. Oh of course I have them on my Facebook list but that is it. For me friendship is not mere presence of a name on friend list of a social site. So that doesn’t really count. Lastly I am really sorry for all the times that I was wrong (if any 😀 ). Your presence and role in my life will always be cherished and missed. 🙂 🙂

Mr. Leech

I always feel that I am blessed to be a girl. But some people just want to ruin it for me. Want to make me realize, by every chance they get, that being a girl is not a rosy journey at all. It is due to these people who the debate of girl vs boy ever came into existence. There exist a kind of men, some loser pathetic obnoxious moron men/boys who think they are superior just because they are male. Ew. Dude, firstly that thought makes you the worst person ever.
I am talking about the kind who are so desperate that they can’t resist teasing a girl walking on the footpath. Girl sitting in a ladies compartment visible from their seat is, according to them, something they own and they can look at or comment on them as much as they want. Girls driving scooty are a toy for the kind of people I am talking about. Addictive toy. They never miss playing with them. And yeah some girls ignore them, some remind them of their mothers and sisters. But that seems to be having no effect on them. Sheeaa. Any girl getting married to such a leech, I pity you.
Sometimes ignoring them seems the only option left. Because in these kind of people too there is a sub-kind. There are some who if see the girl retaliate, will stop. While for some the game becomes all the more interesting, like the only motto left in their life is to irritate, tease and humiliate the girl who objected on being teased. How is the girl suppose to know which guy belongs where? Trying to stop them risks having them all the more interested. Some just don’t fear the presence of people around. Apparently a guy doesn’t have to bother that, right? Because obviously everyone will end up saying ‘zarur ladki ne hint di hogi’. Which girl would like a roadside leach to be interested in her? It simply is a win-win situation for boys.
No girl deserves to be treated that way. None at all. The guys who think that teasing, suppressing or dominating a girl makes you macho, go die. It makes you sick. You really deserve to wear bangles. You know why? Because you feel the need to use a girl to prove your manhood.
Respect her, protect her and prove you are a gentleman. She is no toy of yours to play with whenever you wish to. Just because she is tolerating you, doesn’t mean she is scared, no. She doesn’t find you worthy of being corrected. She can very well crush your ego with that sandal of her’s. But she doesn’t have an ego to need an ego massage by crushing your ego. She is dignified, not egoistic like you. Get it?

Interesting Read !!

I am posting a few dialogues from books and some series i have seen that i found pretty interesting, emotional and worth reading 🙂 🙂

From the movie If Only:
Samantha on being asked what would she do if it was her last day on earth:
I’d spend it with you.
Just being together. Like now.
A closeness. An intense closeness. Really sharing things with each other. Silly things. Difficult things. That’s what I’ve always wanted for us, and if we could have that…nothing could hurt us.

From the movie A Walk To Remember:
When Landon asks Jamie if she would help her:
Jamie: You have to promise you won’t fall in love with me.
Landon: That’s not a problem.

Landon reading a quote from Jamie’s mom’s self compiled book:
Landon: “Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful.”

From The Vampire Diaries S01E01:
Elena (who has lost both her parents) writes her diary:
Dear diary, today will be different. It has to be. I will smile, and it will be believable. My smile will say “I’m fine, thank you.” “Yes, I feel much better.” I will no longer be the sad little girl who lost her parents. I will start fresh, be someone new. It’s the only way I’ll make it through.

From the movie The Notebook:
[His last letter to Allie]
My Dearest Allie. I couldn’t sleep last night because I know that it’s over between us. I’m not bitter any more, because I know that what we had was real. And if in some distant place in the future we see each other in our new lives, I’ll smile at you with joy and remember how we spent the summer beneath the trees, learning from each other and growing in love. The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that’s what you’ve given me. That’s what I hope to give to you forever. I love you. I’ll be seeing you. Noah.

From the movie The Shawshank Redemption:
Andy Dufresne: That’s the beauty of music. They can’t get that from you… Haven’t you ever felt that way about music?
Red: I played a mean harmonica as a younger man. Lost interest in it though. Didn’t make much sense in here.
Andy Dufresne: Here’s where it makes the most sense. You need it so you don’t forget.
Red: Forget?
Andy Dufresne: Forget that… there are places in this world that aren’t made out of stone. That there’s something inside… that they can’t get to, that they can’t touch. That’s yours.
Red: What’re you talking about?
Andy Dufresne: Hope.

From the movie Chak De, India:
Coach Kabir: “Aaj Pehli Baar Dekh Raha Hoon Kisi gore Ko Tiranga Pehrate Hue”

From the movie Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge:
Preeti explaining Vishal that she accidentally fell in love with him: You know its ok, tumhari galati nahi hai. Tumne bhi wahi kia jo maine kia. Maine aise hi party mein bina soche samjhe over react kar dia. Its just that mein, I fell for you. Tumse pyaar kar baithi. Dont worry tumhari galati nahi hai, it’s just me. Obviously tum Malvika se pyaar karte ho, kon nahi karta?! And you know me, Stupid Mogambee!! Aadhi cheezen mein aisehi bina soche samjhe karti hun, ab ye pyaar shyaar bhi..asehi. Without thinking. So basically mein ye keh rahi hun, don’t stress and just ignore everything. I’ll get over it. Meri problem hai, I’ll deal with it.Are we cool? Chill

While presenting an AV of 25 Love stories at College Annual day:
Preeti: Kisiko ek pal mein pyaar hogaya, kisiko teen saal lag gaye. Kisine jhat se dil ki baat bol di, kisine kuch nahi bola. Bas aakhon se keh dia jo kehna tha.Back then, they knew how to love. Yaa dil ki baat kaise kehte hain, woh toh unhe aata tha. That is why some love stories are forever. Lets watch it through this AV.

Vishal (interrupting the AV): You are right. Unn dino internet nahi tha na. No SMS, Short Messaging Service. In short, kaise aap woh hazar baatein kahoge jo aapka dil kehna chahta hai? Ek smiley mein kahan woh baat hai jo class ke across uski aakhon mein dekhkar smile karne mein hai? Log pehle teachers, parents yaa dusre students se chipkar pyaar karte the, lekin aajkal toh ek dusre se chipkar pyaar karte hain. Library shelves aur pedon ke peeche saath saath chupne ke bajaye, aajkal log ek dusre ke saamne hokar bhi computer screen ke peeche chup jaate hain. Internet connection ki speed se pyaar hota hai aur utni hi asaani se logout bhi hojata hai. I mean think about it, kaise kisiki clever bio line ya uski Display Picture se kisiko pyaar ho sakta hai? Pyaar toh kisi saans leti, ladti, jhagadti, gussa hoti, complex, complicated, sweet, idiotic si kisi pretty amazing si ladki se hota hai. Yes friends, ek 26th Love Story bhi hai, par uske liye sirf Fraaandship request se kaam nahi chalega. Uske liye toh aakhon mein aakhen dalke, sar jhuka ke, ghutne pe girke sach bolna padta hai.
Mere dil, jigar, liver mein ho tum,
wakt, bewakt aaya hua fever ho tum,
ab toh meri life mein, forever ho tum.
