Independence day for the two indias(part 1)

 yesterday...we all citizens were so proud of our motherland...and her sons,who lost their lives,to give us a secure and independent country...


i still remember the plays,skits students used to perform telling our coming generations about are vast past....:) reading those biographies of the great writers and people who had worked so hard to make our country and its people proud of themselves :)it was such a big day...and a national holiday too...so my devil mind needed to do something...i switched on the TV, ah...the same parade...so i immediately switched it off...it isn't that i don't love my country or its people but...well will come to it liters i thought of gossiping with my dear friend google :)i just opened its images page and typed-"INDIA"

 and the pictures i saw were...beautiful...taj mahal in different lights, maps of india....so on.




but then i saw one more picture- 

so, i thought of molding my request a little, and our dear google understood it very welland then it showed me these-












    












   (last one my favourite)

so, according to Google and hence according to the whole world this is the real india.seriously speaking who am i to say anything? what have i done for my motherland? so i hought, i haven;t done anything for my country, but at-least i could know about it...so i asked again my dear gogle to put some light on my great country...this is what i got-

India, officially the Republic of India  is a country in South Asia.
It is the seventh-largest country by area,
the second-most populous country with over 1.2 billion people, and the most populous democratic republic in the world. The Indian subcontinent was identified with its commercial and cultural wealth for much of its long history. Four of the world's major religions—Hinduism,Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism—originated here, whereas Zoroastrianism, Christianity, and Islam arrived in the 1st millennium and also helped shape the region's diverse culture.
Gradually annexed by and brought under the administration of the British East India Company from the early 18th century and administered directly by the United Kingdom from the mid-19th century, India became an independent nation in 1947 after a struggle for independence that was marked by non-violent resistance led by Mahatma Gandhi.
The Indian economy is the world's eleventh-largest by nominal GDP and third-largest by purchasing power parity (PPP).
However, it continues to face the challenges of poverty, illiteracy, corruption, and inadequate public healthcare.
A nuclear weapons state and a regional power, it has the third-largest standing army in the world and ranks eighth in military expenditure among nations

well, as i have already said i am no one to say about our country :P. so, no comments.well, last week i was watching my favourite serial-"HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, i love it, the characters, the story track and the lifestyle.okay-okay i am not the only one who like it...so...i am coming to the point, in this serial, there are so many episodes where you can see these people saying-


"I CAN'T EVEN IMAGINE MY LIFE,SOMEWHERE OTHER THAN USA"

or

I LOVE MY LIFESTYLE HERE, THERE IS NO BETTER PLACE.

or

"WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT GUY? IS HE FROM INDIA?

or

MY STOMACH IS UPSET AS IF I HAD SOME INDIAN FOOD LAST NIGHT.

I have always heard about the two indias, with such a glorified history and credentials, India on one side stands high, tall and on the top of world. But the last part of this post coins the other india, the india for the western world.

Let's take a look

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... :)

Count your blessings

"If material things are what you are talking about when you say i am blessed, You have no idea what a blessing is. "
Yes, its weird coming from a shopaholic like me :) but isn't it correct. We all or I must say- most of us have what we need to live our lives. Its just that we want more, something more and that list never ends.
We get something we wanted , and we develop a liking for something else. Its good to have your thoughts in sync, to move ahead, to wish and make your own wishes come true. But there is no way, those wishes can define your happiness.

One thing I learned from observing people is that we wish for these material things and act crazy for them when we believe there is something missing in the life. Something more meaningful, something you believe you should have got as a right or something you really deserve. It could be being alone, losing someone, not having that dream job, just anything.  And we use these material things to just fill in those gaps. To…
