Dreams Part-3

As a child Gargi had different fantacies she wanted to get her nose pierced and have a nose ring Everyone advised her not to do it as it could be painful and she was too young for that but Gargi was not willing to listen once she wants something she wants it that was her nature. So much against everyone’s wishes one fine day Gargi went to get her nose pierced.
She had no idea how painful that could be but once the piercing started Gargi could not bear the pain and started crying loudly yelling that “My nose has been cut ………………” and even tried to push away the person piercing. Finally the nose ring was inserted but Gargi was still saying the same thing “My nose has been cut ………………” and was not willing to accept that her nose is intact except for a minute hole for the ring. So finally she had check in the mirror and then she realized that her nose is intact. Still in some pain she silently went home and went to sleep that night experiencing slight pain. Next day when she woke up her nose felt fine and she was vey happy with her ring.
Once Gargi had got her nose pierced how could Shuchi stay back she also wanted to do the same thing but she was not allowed at that time. Few years later however Shuchi also went to get her nose pierced but she was different from Gargi she calmly got the thing done without slightest noise or crying. Such was the difference between Gargi and Shuchi still inspite of different natures both of them went well with each other.
Gargi was very fond of water activities and wanted to learn swimming. Looking at others she felt that swimming must be easy and can be learnt in a day or two. But the day she stepped into the pool she realized it was not as easy as she thought. First session of swimming got over for Gargi and she went home on the way she constantly felt as if she is walking in water. Next day when she got up her hands and legs started aching badly and Gargi felt like swimming is not my cup of tea. After two three daysthe pain vanished and desire to learn started again shaping up so gargi went back for swimming. Slowly the pain and feeling like constantly walking in water vanished but even after two months Gargi could not learn swimming.
Two months passed this way and Gargi’s summer vacation got over she had to leave swimming for time being. One year passed and the vacation came back again and Gargi again went for swimming this time more determined to learn. But looking at her progress nobody thought she will learn swimming, but Gargi was not the one to give up. She had made up her mind that I will learn swimming at any costs.
Finally the golden moment came when she realized that she could swim. Gargi was very happy and felt like she is at top of heaven. This incident taught her one lesson that if you persistently try nothing is impossible sooner or later you will achieve what you want..……….. to be continued

Dreams -Part 2

Each child wants to have sibling to play with, to share thoughts and experiences with and our Gargi was no exception to this. She always wanted to have little sister and not a brother because she felt that her sister will play with her and become her best friend. Finally god answered her prayers and she was blessed with little baby sister “Shuchi”. First time when Gargi saw Shuchi it was the happiest moment for Gargi, Shuchi looked at her with her wide open eyes uncommon for a new born baby. First day when Shuchi came home she starred everywhere, looking at the home as if she said to herself this is my home I am the owner of this house…..Little did anyone know at that time that she was going to be the owner in future and as far as Gargi was concerned she was more than happy in giving everything to her sister.
Gargi was very happy to have Shuchi if any of the neighbourhood kids came to see Shuchi, Gargi did not allow them saying she is my sister only I will play with her no one else she was kind of possessive about her little sister. Gargi had to leave for school early in the morning and Shuchi always insisted to come with her. Things had changed a little after Shuchi’s arrival Gargi was expected to behave in more mature way she had to listen to comments like you are the elder you need to show more understanding.
Gargi was intelligent in studies and always scored good rank, while Shuchi was a multitalented person she could paint beautiful pictures and won many competitions, she could write poems, stories and was very creative. Gargi lacked creativity even drawing a simple straight line or circle was difficult for her, forget about making paintings. She was more of technical person loved complex calculations and her favorite subject in school was mathematics which is not in case of most of students.She was good in studies and more technical work and loved helping Shuchi in her studies. Shuchi wanted to do all the things that Gargi did and always wanted to be like her. Gargi was very happy with the creative work that her sister did and wondered sometimes why can’t I do things like her.
Strong bond was developed between two of them and days were passing happily for Gargi and Shuchi together………..

We are not where we want to be

Recently I had to make a big change in my life I had to move out of my comfort zone to take on a new experience which was a kind of rebirth to me. Below is a story I had read sometime back on facebook which served as an inspiration for me. So sharing it here for all my readers I hope it inspires you also …….

The Story of an EAGLE:

The Eagle has the longest life-span of its species. It can live upto 70 years.

But to reach this age, the eagle must make a very difficult decision!

In its 40th year, the eagle’s long and flexible Talons can no longer grab a prey which serves as food.

Its long and sharp beak becomes bent.
Its old-aged and heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, stick to its chest and make it difficult to fly.

Then, the eagle is left with only two options: DIE or go through a painful process of CHANGE!

This process lasts for 150 days (5 months)

The process requires the eagle to fly to a mountain top and sit on its nest. There the eagle knocks its beak against a rock until it plucks it out.

Then the eagle will wait for the new beak to grow back after which it will pluck out its talons. When its talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its old aged feathers.

And after this the eagle takes its famous flight of rebirth and LIVES for 30 more years!!

Why is Change needed???

In order to survive and live. We too have to start the change process.

We sometimes need to get rid of the unpleasant old memories, negative habits and our fixed mind set.

Only Freed from the past burdens can we take advantage of the present.

If an eagle can make a life saving and life changing decision at the age of 40….why can’t we?

In order to take on a New Journey ahead, let go of your negative old limiting beliefs.

Open up your mind and let yourself fly high like an eagle!

When it rains, all birds occupy shelter. But the EAGLE avoids the rain by flying above the clouds….

The problem is common to all but the attitude to solve it makes the difference!

Don’t be afraid of change…accept it gracefully..!!!

Dreams -part I

In this journey of life we come across different people, but only few of them really touch us and carve their permanent impression in our memory. Just few days back I came across one such person Gargi her story inspired me to writing………
Gargi as I said is no celebrity or has achieved anything out of this world but is simple and straightforward girl who wanted a simple and happy life. This is story of  her dreams, her struggles, her hardwork, her dedication, her determination, her pain, her loneliness, successes and failures both.
What can I say about Gargi she was very intelligent, dedicated, simple, straight forward or outspoken, very harsh with words but very kind at heart. Few kind words could make her happy and few harsh words could make her upset or angry easily.
Gargi was the first child of her parents and was apple of their eye, as young child she was average in her looks and slightly overweight, good in studies but not good in sports or any physical activities she always struggled in such things. Her inability to take part in games made her distance away from other children she could not mix and  play with them and was made fun of because of her overweight. She did not mind this much she liked more of games which required less physical activity and more mentally challenging like cards or chess or other indoor games. She had her own different games like when she used to visit a beach she used to collect the sand and bring it home with her  and spread that at home to get a feel of chowpatty at home. Such were her different games which she used to play all alone.
This kind of staying alone slowly changed her into a shy or reserved person who did not speak up much and so did not have many friends. In school also she stayed alone away from other classmates she wanted to mix up with them be friendly with them but did not know what to talk and everybody mistook her for being a egoistic person who does not feel other people are equal to her and so does not talk. This nature was going to create lot many difficulties in Gargi’s life latter which she was completely unaware of at this time.
As a young child Gargi loved to play on swings, swings around her home were always  full of children waiting to play in queues Gargi was also waiting for her turn in queue but the other children playing before her brought their friends breaking the queue and Gargi kept on waiting for her turn for nearly two hours, people kept on asking her can we take some more time and she agreed because she did not know how to say “No” or fight for her rights. Slowly it grew dark and everybody left then finally Gargi got her chance after a long wait that too for only few minutes because it was time to leave. This incident taught her a very important lesson that you have to fight for what you want else you will only get what is left over after everybody has taken. Next day onwards she learnt demand when her turn came and fight with others if required………………

Love

Today on the Valentine day as I am starting writing my blog what could be a better topic to start my first article than Love. When we think of valentine day all our thoughts come around one single thing that first and foremost thing you need to experience love is a partner, a dream partner, soulmate, a prince charming who will love you unconditionally with whom you can share all your thoughts who will always be there for you no matter what, with whom you can spend hours talking, long walks, candle light dinners, roses, chocolates, pastries and all things which make life beautiful.

No wonder all these things make life beautiful and everyone wants them at some point of time. Then what about the single people out there do they have to spend their days lonely wishing they could find their partner like all others?

Certainly not according to me love does not require a partner, you have to love yourself first before you can love someone else or to be able to attract someone else in your life. You have to build your self esteem, self confidence and go after your dreams and see how beautiful life seems to be to you.

So all my single friends don’t spend todays day feeling lonely and sad what if there is no one else to buy gifts,flowers and chocolates for you buy them yourself, listen to your favourite music, have dinner at your favourite restaurant, go for a long drive or a walk to your favourite place, plan a trip out of town do anything and everything that makes you happy.

Like I started with my new hobby of writing a blog my first experiment in doing something creative normally I am complete technical person. I will be posting my first story “Dreams” which is journey of simple kind hearted girl and  pursuit of her dreams and how she changed along the journey.

I would like to have a honest feedback from all of you on my story please do give sometime to write back your thoughts
