Happy Diwali/ शुभ दीपावली

Diwali prayer:
Let us, this year, light up a life,
Let us, this year, cleanse the within
Let us, this year, distribute the sweetmeats of kind words and RAKs(Random Acts of Kindness)..
Happy Diwali.. now, and forver...

इस साल की प्रार्थना :
इस साल, एक जीवन मे ज्योति ला पाएं,
इस साल, अंतर्मन को साफ़ करें॥
इस साल, मीठे बांटें शब्द, और कुछ अच्छे कर्म
दीपावली की शुभकामना, और सारे साल की प्रार्थना
शुभ दीपावली !!

एक अन्तर मन है, जिस का बढ़ना ज़रूरी है,
एक अन्तर दूरी है, जिस का घटना ज़रूरी है।

Hand grenade

You always knew, did you not
That you were dealing
Not with a woman
But with a hand grenade
When you pull out the plug,
You must also, throw it away..
You pried the plug loose,
But did not
Follow
The rule of the hand grenade
I exploded
Right there, in your hands..
And you ...too…
You always knew, did you not,
That we could both get annihilated?

A tag

RULE #1 People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

I was tagged by Itchie.

1. If your lover betrayed you what would your reaction be?
Before marriage:
Get a strong urge to physically slap him, take all my stuff, throw his at him physically, and tell him to go to hell. In the next hour, his id would be blocked on all my messangers, his numbers deleted from all my phones and contact lists. And I'd be very likely to never get in tuch with him again, no matter how much it hurts.

After Marriage:
I'd first get personal counseling to get over the initial reaction, then finalise the terms of the divorce. Will also introspect what led to this and how things can be better in the next marriage.

After a child:
First get a personal counseling session to get over the inital reaction, then ask if he wants to pay maintenance or go for marital counseling to save the marriage contract.

2. If you have a dream come true, what would it be?
Far too many dreams.. just one? A decent teaching position in a prestigious mountains based school, where my child grows up among the moutains and we do not have to worry abt the money.

3. If you could, whose butt would you like to kick?
Just one again?? Not possible to name just one.

4. What would you do with a billion dollars?
Buy a HUGE house in the mountains, invest the rest, and take a small luxury tour. The investment should be such that i get a decent monthly income every month for the rest of my life.

5. Will you fall in love with your best friend?
bad idea.

6. Which is more blessed: loving someone or being loved by someone?
Both, preferably with the same person.

7. How long do you intend to wait for someone you love?
Why wait? Can waiting induce love in the other person? He's either there or not there.

8. If the person you secretly like is attached, what will you do?
Nothing. its about my liking them, not about them liking me back.

9. If you could root for one social cause, what would it be?
I already do - employment for the visually disabled.

10. Do you lie?
Not unless its really necessary. And I am a bad liar.

11. Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?
Nowhere. Still around, still blogging, and hopefully with a 11 year old son.

12. What’s your fear?
Ghosts.

13. What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
Nice. Good writer. Intelligent as hell.

14. Would you rather be single and rich or married and poor?
Not poor. Single, rich and feeling gud abt life, with or without a man as arm candy.

15. If you fall in love with two people simultaneously who will you pick?
The question should be - who will pick me?

16. Would you give all in a relationship?
No. Unless he is really nice.

17. Would you forgive and forget someone no matter how horrible a thing he has done?
No. Forgive will happen, forget will not.

18. Do you prefer being single or in a relationship?
Either a good relationship or none.

19. Your all time favourite song. Only ONE.
Only one? That's not fair. Thankfully i have one. Bichhade sabhi baari baari.. Guru Dutt.

Almost everyone i know has been tagged to do this already and they have all given brilliant answers. If you still havent been tagged, pls take this up. Its gud fun for introspection.

Ironical, no? - On Gandhi Jayanti National Holiday

MK Gandhi was a man who made multi tasking a habit, who taught us "Work is Worship"(among other things, of course)
A man who read while he ate, and held strategy meetings with evening walks.. and HIS birthday is supposed to be a Forced Holiday?? What a way to show how well we remember his principles!
