A zephyr of wind serener than sea.....

I met her at one of her parties....
And guess what I was invited without she even knowing me.
This is how you meet people when HE wants you to.
She was this classy girl, no messes,no air,but still a command which she carried always.
A typical Army girl with a Delhi background .
So,a deadly combination. And guess what,she was a cancerian.
And I don't have very fond memories of Aquarians-Cancerians budding friendships.
But opinions are meant to be changed. Chalta hai...One should not be rigid. Look who's saying.
And story goes on. Spent time with her off and on. Busy I am as always.
She went abroad for her MS. And never completed it.
WHY ? In this world only 4 people know about this.I don't intend to share this.Sorry.
So what's the bottomline - She's no more in this world. And I seriously sometime fail to believe this.
She said always -
Life comes in packets. You have to cut it . If you cut it the right way you'll get "that" desired gift.
If you don't then it'll be torn.
What she meant was YOU HAVE TO CUT IT . You have to bleed have to suffer....because then only you'll realise the value of achieving something.
We live in a strange world . Strange people, strange rules, procedures and even stranger LIFE.
Huh !!
Never to cry because excess of salt is bad for health.she said always
Will not miss you but will hate you for going so early.
btw-she had sent my birthday card way in advance.Thanks.

Liked this post very much....reading it 3rd time along with 2 more.

Just one question?
What if every time you the cut the packet in the wrong way? And every time you suffer?

@Niharika - Why is it that "you” need to make a first move? Remember it's not always advisable to go for a market entry strategy .That apart; there is no wrong or right way. It’s the way your heart desires and the mind follows it. Suffering is optional. Remember always, live for those who yearn for your smile.

Being an Indian Police Service Officer - an IPS

Everytime I watch movies like  - Sarfarosh , Gangaajal or Sehar , all I want to be, in this life is - an IPS officer. 

You may think its the power and the pride that comes with the post which an IPS officer holds or some of you may say its the sheer status the word IPS reflects upon one. 

The perks like most of us know, is having an unprecedented power, ( used to-be) a lal-batti , a huge team which does ' Jai Hind ' and a whole lot of a new world .

Given, I have had a good fortune to be in a family of friends who are IPS and know and understand from them what is it being an IPS officer most of the above mentioned movies or may be the image we tend paint in our minds is very different from what actually is an IPS officer and what all does s/he undergoes to be one.

I would put my take on this and share with you all my thoughts on how & what is a life of an IPS.

Studying is just a part of it.

The civil services examinations are considered not only the toughest in Indian competitive…

10 things to do in Kodaikanal

There is something about rains and open spaces that make me a little more than hilarious. And not only me, couple of others as well . 

Today, rains in Delhi bought back the festive cheer killing the week long SMOG clouding all around Delhi / NCR. As I am usually up for an early morning catch-up breakfast with a few special folks, we decided let's step out and drive away to a place far from the traffic snarls yet has a festive cheer.

The thought came to go to Kodaikanal

While you may think I am crazy and my rest of the gang mad but then this is how life should be - unplanned, unbiased and unimaginable yet positive . 

Known world over as the princess of hill stations, this place has made me fall in love all over again. My first thought on reaching here was, this can't be in India. 

This has to be a foreign location. Pristine surrounding, lovely people to talk to and spend time with and not to forget the bicycles that can be rented to take a ride or two around the famous Kodaikanal …

What if & What about

Every night when she tried to sleep, she thought of the 'what if's' in her life that lead to the 'what about's'..

What if tomorrow or the next moment she was dead..

What about the dreams and aspirations she wanted to fulfill..

What about the loved ones she fought an hour back..

What about her 'would be' husband and kids..

What about the life she ever imagined..

What about making it big..

What about the home for homeless cause she wanted to build all around..

What about the heartbreaks she went..

What about the travel she is yet to set foot upon..

What about the many thanks & apologies she owes to people..

What about her sweet kitten- Mando..

What about her family and her friends..

As she was watching her favorite sitcom series she realized that one day she will not be around & yet there is so much to do. What she also thought was the time gone by, all these years, she was just basically waking up and sleeping down. In between, it was all air.
