A Love Affair!

A love stream flows down
The shiny locks of a woman.
The sublime love affair begins
As the locks continue coquetting.
And there goes  a man’s heart
Bludgeoning down.
She plays a tune on her hair                        
With papayas, yoghurt and honey.
As the sweet fragrance there
Sits up as the crown adorned.
Beware! Oh, poor souls!
The magic will only surmount.

She braids them to lure
A prince charming already allured
By the beauty, so pure.
Then moulds them in a bun
Just so you don’t forget
She’s a woman of substance.

Such is the beauty of hair. It can make jaws drop. When wind plays with that crisp little strand of your hair, have you wondered how pulse rates go seemingly up at the other end. When you, oblivious of the world, let your hair dance at your back, have you wondered how many souls dance to the tunes played by your hair. Ever wondered how telling these wonderful, long locks can be! The love begins right then, right there!

My Wow Hair Moment!

Aryan:  Wassup with the bird’s nest?

Me:      Thought I should give it a rest!

Aryan:  Thank God!

              (Still thanking heavens)

Me:       Nope! Thank Dove!

Aryan:  What’s their magic potion?

              (Devilish smile)

Me:       With a touch of gold,

              Dove Insta Oil is their new creation!


Aryan:  And hence you fell for the new crazy sensation!

              (Crazy Laughter)

Me:       Go to hell!

Aryan:   Sister! Your hair have never looked this great!

               Thought I should tell!

               (Walks out of the room)

Me:        (toothy smile)

So, Thank You Dove!!

And this is my entry for Dove- Love your hair and it loves you back !!!

Eight things you must know about Jammu & Jammuites!!

In the past few months I got to interact with the people of the length and breadth of our country (thanks to a string of tests). The whole experience was exhilarating. Seeing people from so many cultures together is an altogether different experience. I could seriously sit down for hours and watch each person, the way they talked, the way they expressed themselves, the peculiarities, but obviously I didn’t (didn’t want to give wrong ideas about myself, considering the fact that these people from different regions were mostly girls!!!!) But the most peculiar thing was other people feeling the same about me (the people of different region for them) and what caught my attention the most was while I always “maintained a decorum” while watching these peculiar people, they didn’t. They would openly stare and pass comments, some were obviously pleasing (Thank God for making guys!!!You know how we love attention!!! And especially if you tell us that people from our region are most beautiful, why wouldn’t we bask in the glory!!!) while others were outright derogatory remarks. Apart from pleasing and not-so-pleasing remarks were the remarks that spelt IGNORANCE!!! So to all the people who pleased, I take a bow, Thank You Very Much! To all those who blurted whatever crap, I don’t really seem to care! But this post goes out to all the ignorant people. I can totally hear many saying a big Blah! I don’t care!! But trust me, if you are one of those people who switch into a sweater as soon as you cross Pathankote on your way to Jammu, in summer, you seriously need to care!!
Just because I said I'm from Jammu & Kashmir, do you have to watch me like a JERK with eyes and mouth wide open...Seriously, how do you manage to look so all I want to ask you!

Art thou a terrorist?
"Aatankwaadi"!!!!! Did you just call me that? Are u kidding me, you ignorant woman with a pea-sized brain??? We have been victims of terrorism and we don't show pity to these crooks, not even of the size of your brain!

It's an earthly distance, folks!
Do you know Jammu is 362 miles far from Delhi. I heard you talk about your escapedes to Goa from Mumbai...I can bet all my money that you didn't know that Goa is as far from Mumbai as Delhi is from Jammu! So why behave like we've descended from outer space!

The snowball is coming at you!
It doesn't snow in Jammu, for the nth time (I've lost count of the number of times i've told this to people!)

We are very Special!
Yes, we belong to a state with a special status. But do you even know what Special Status means? It doesn't make us feel any special but just hampers our integration with the other country. So, lady, take this Special tag, if you want! I don't seem to care less!!

We look like just one of you!
Yes, we do! I don't know if you were hoping to see a 'Hoor-Pari' but we aren't much different..Some girls from our region are very fair ( Racists!!) but sorry to disappoint, on an average, girls look very much like all other from North do!!

We too have a life, people!
I know you expect us to have come down from mountains...Your IQ has been exposed by now..So, I know what exactly are you thinking...But again, no! We don't live on mountains...yes some tribes do but Jammu's a full-fledged city....not crowded or complicated like a metro....but a nice, quiet place to live in...Just to add to your information, Jammu's a city of temples!

Jammu is NOT Kashmir!
Well, if you'd known this, I wouldn't have to type this post! It snows there!! There are mountains!! They look a little different with the different dresses (firans) that they wear!! There are those absolutely flawless fair-skinned people!! But even they are not terrorists....Victims, they are!

That's all I have to say!
Thank you!

And here's a visual treat of the place called Jammu!!

Beauty Dazzles!

Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder.

That means in a world of billions of people, possessing a pair of eyes each, the count of definitions of beauty are twice the population of the world. If one man is bewitched by the pleasing face of a pretty woman, the other is tantalized by the seductive looks of an enchantress. If one man is allured by the classiness of a stunning woman, the other is enticed by a delightfully adorable girl. A woman may find herself prepossessed by a man’s striking anatomy, while another may be captivated by his wit and humour. The interpretation of the classic noun ’Beauty’ becomes even more enigmatic from the fact that a person rendered beautiful in one part of the world may not appeal to the masses of another. But beauty is and should not be effervescent. The countenance of a person may not remain beautiful all his/her life but like they say, “Some people, when they grow older, simply move their beauty from their face to their hearts.

Physical beauty is relative to space and time, while real beauty is absolute. No matter, where they go, how old they are, beautiful people stay beautiful. Physical appearances often camouflage the person de facto but real beauty does not walk in disguise. It does not rest within the confines of the beautiful person; rather it radiates and after sometime reflects back from every person who touches the life of the beautiful person because real beauty is in deed and not just the outer semblance.

1. A content man is beautiful.
Fulfilment leads to contentment. A heart full with joy of attaining the level set by the man himself radiates beauty.

2. A successful man is beautiful.
Nothing appears more spectacular than success. The brilliance of a successful man not only illuminates his own soul but many others touched by the warmth of his luminance.

3. A truthful man is beautiful.
The most striking feature of beauty is its rarity and uniqueness. What could be rarer and more unique than a truthful person? In that case, I don’t mind calling an Anna Hazare beautiful!

4. A dutiful man is beautiful.
A woman, whose call of duty begins with the break of sunrays, intensifies with the shortening shadows and continues till the stars form a cover of protection around the world is beautiful.

5. A compassionate man is beautiful.
In today’s rat-race where each one gears up every day to trample the other, the person who stops for a while to share a few words of compassion is indeed beautiful.

The shallow idea of superficial beauty is crass! Beauty is what leads to an insight into the heart of a person.
Come to think of a world where only fair-skinned, very-much-in-shape people would be respected! Whatever happened to the brains!!

To all the people pale, black, wheatish or brown,
To all the folks lean, obese, rickety or overblown,
To the mates disabled, crippled or thwarted,
Don’t lose hope, the world’s no theatre.
No inches of makeup, any masks could conceal
The soul and temperament in real.
Each one would be weighed on the scales of deed.
To a blemish here, freckle there, a scar and a bruise,
I couldn’t care less about toying with you!
I’ve spread beauty, played my part and I bid adieu.
I’m leaving with a Beautiful me and a Beautiful You!

In the age of liposuction, botox, silicons, if only clear skin, refined features and shapely body defined beauty all in all, the whole world could boast of being beautiful!
But the wizardry of cosmetics can never dupe the eye of the beholder to differentiate cosmetic beauty from Real Beauty because Real beauty dazzles in every space and time!

A Lost Wanderer

Life is a B**ch, some say....No...a temptress, I argue!

The various ways to life forward have started to open now....But has life been simple, ever!!!????

I'm on crossroads...and things not getting any better.....there are umpteen number of ways that stand in front each boasting of its pros....And I, wondering if I'd been an optimist ever, instantly calculate the cons of each....

The road that I crossmarked, thinking I'm never going to pass now appears lush green on its sides, taken by many, so low on risks luring me into taking it this one time! I think I'll need an epilogue to the Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken"as a take into what people do when encountered with such crossroads!!

Time's running fast...and i'm still lagging behind it....Will I be able to catch it ever( in time!!! )...still remains a mindboggling question to me!!!

P.S. The reason I bugged you with this post is that d good news is that I got placed in two companies together.....and the not-so-good-part is that I wasn't even aiming for it....I need to FOCUS!!!!Gawd!!
