A TIME THAT WILL NEVER COME BACK

Staying in a hostel, spending time with different brains, moods, people, ideologies, is never an easy thing to do...
And whenever i have a new problem i tel myself - 
"you have lived in a hostel for four years.....you can manage anything"

Believe me living in a hostel is really a task.... You have to live almost 24*7 with a person...about whom you don't know anything......
the first few days....you just observe people...as if evaluating the hard limits....
after all you both have equally paid for the room and the stuff.... hehe :-)


the first few days could really crash a person...

aah i love ragging days....
u are sitting in your room reading the subject of your toughest teacher......and there is a knock on the door..

"COME TO ROOM NO.203" 

"NOW"

you feel as if your lower jaw has dropped on the floor...butterflies in your stomach....
"what will happen?"
"how will they talk?"
"what will they ask"
aah the list is long

you gather people.....and enter the room.....

there is so dark in there....just one small bedside lamp...letting you see the faces of the demons....
and then it starts....

you sing...you dance...you ,may even be asked to bark ;P

As they say, the tables always turn,
no matter how you feel while being ragged,.....but next year when you are at the opposite side...you laugh at what you did...
what were you asked to do...
some people got hurt.....some feel devastated...and others feel so proud of themselves....

well...i know ragging is banned...but if done in a proper and respected manner...it could teach you the very first lesson you need to learn-"Overcome your fears"

from the loving embrace of your mother,stepping into a world of total strangers....sometimes so weird....who don't give a damn about anyone other then themselves....you started feeling homesick...
you may cry your eyes out....you want to go back....
you feel trapped.....

you started talking to people...aah different people....diff cultures...

time passes.....


you spend your first weekend in hostel...then a couple of weekends....and then you just turn into a lazy...hungry..freak...who can eat anything,....sleep anywhere....:)
you  have no boundaries....you love breaking rules....you become so so bold... as if the world is yours....you can live with anyone...
you paint your walls in your colors...
late night movies...midnight snacks...bunking classes.....abusive language....shorter clothes....dirty dancing...playing pranks...birthday bumps...teary breakups...dreamy commitments...full night talks....hostel nights...midnight kirtans....fake calls....last night prepration....witout water baths...hehe........
hostel rains...holi parties...ghosty talks....

.you decorate or mismanage your room in your way.....


"JUST BEING YOUR TRUESELVES" 








and one day.... you have to leave...just like that......
you want to cry...




you wish you could stay...just few more months....a few more weeks...
seems like the end of your world/.....and you pack your stuff.....hug you hostel family....

and walk out of the gate...as you have entered......tears in eyes....but with infinite memories.........
"you know it was the best time of your life"
A TIME THAT WILL NEVER COME BACK

And i am blabbering again :)

Looking at yourself, have you ever felt like, this is not what you wanted to be. Like ever. And here you are standing in front of the mirror, looking at your face, thinking - is this really me now? Do i have to cope with this person like forever?
Can I like exchange somewhere?


Looking at the kids around, they have so much on their mind, they have hopes, dreams. They also look at the movie stars/celebrities and hope that they would live lives like them. Their on screen characters leave a mark on our just-blossomed hearts and minds.
What we do not know till then is  that the biggest fight, disappointment, inspiration they will get from themselves.


I have always wanted to be the free spirit person, living my life on my terms, not caring about anyone around, their opinions. I thought i would draft a new bucket list every year and complete it all up by November, so that i can think about more and more. And get over with all the crazy, stupid stuff by the End of this life. And what am i doing?…

Something new....

Aaah.... Guess what today i thought about several things that i want to share with you people... But i realized this needs a break...

There must be something worth writing... ;p

Was reading a novel-
In between some arguement
And the hero asks heroine- what do you want me to do?

Her reply- "i don't know".


And i wasn't able to stop myself.... I was laughing out aloud....
Truely said-how could a guy understand what his girl wants..when she herself has got no idea....
Funny but true..
Well if some guy writes this on his facebook wall...i will be so-so angry... I may even shout....what the hell these guys think...

Hehe
But i know its true...i mean...we girls always know what the other person expects... What we should do...

But we are seldomly sure about what we want...
;) may be because...since early days of our lives....we keep everyone else before us....so have lost contact with ourselves...
;)

Love,jags

just a thought...

I guess the best thing i learned till today...is that - if you feel bad...you have a war going on inside your head, you are not sure about the next step you will take...or where your life is going...where you will be , the very next day...or a week later or what you will do...So what if sometimes you feel that things are wrong...nothing is working out the way you suggested... still you will be fine...You will live by all this... many-many similar days are waiting for you...Big dreams and even bigger problems are being positioned by the almighty , just to add a little adventure...But you will live ...It will all be fine in the end...
Just be yourself...and see how beautiful a person you are... Just smile...may be just to practice it...
Because even if...today your smile is a little tired and sad...tomorrow it will be happy...real and satisfying... Life is not about a moment...or a day...or a week...not even a year... Its about the whole...its about you... :)
