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 a movie , 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 . The perks like most of us know , is having an unprecedented power , 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 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 he undergoes to be one.

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

Studying is just a part of it . The civil services examination is considered not only the toughest in Indian competitive examination scenarios but also one o…

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 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 Kodaikan…

Travel Diaries & more - Make it count

Everytime I travel, I look forward to meeting new people. New places as well can be explored but what is home without humans!?
Off late, besides the flights getting delayed, I like to reach the airport ahead of my scheduled departure timing & sit around in the lounge & read or chit-chat. Works for me.
Last week was fun & yet a bit hectic. During one of my lounge visits I hosted a dear friend ( though exactly for 15 minutes ) for a small #CoffeewithKaran session & off he had to go. In those 15 minutes we spoke in true blue corporate styles. First 5 minutes updates from him and I sipped my hot chocolate and then the next 5 minutes updates from my side.  The remaining 5 minutes were spent on discussing  ' better than before'  .
During my flight I met an amazing doctoral student or a fellowship candidate as she likes to be described. She was pursing her close 4 years doctor fellowship from a premium institute and such was her focus that she decided not to get married …
