They say when life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade. Then they also say tough times don’t last, tough people do. (When the going gets tough, the tough gets going, remember?) Then the line – what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger, came through.I say, when all of the above fails, press the magic button of CTRL-ALT-DEL in your head.This button introduced by Microsoft actually has a classic connotation to it if one chooses to delve deep. You recall how easy it is to operate a defaulted system which posed a ‘syntax error’ once you press this magic button? Same extended logic, nothing else. And here’s how –1) CONTROL your emotions (Let the head do the job. The heart can keep bickering).2) Pick the right ALTERNATIVES (Trash is no alternative. You’d rather hang yourself or even jump into the Indian Ocean). Choice and discretion are conferred upon humans as differentiators from fellow animals, right?3) And DELETE the unwanted crap (crap is unwanted, I know. Just mentioned it for the sake of assertiveness) in your life. (Take a garbage bag. Particularly the black one. Dump the crap, tie it up and watch the shit go in the CLEAN UP VAN)Remember – To err is being human and to err repeatedly is being a moron.Trust me it’s easier done than said! (Yeah, you heard me right).
A shadow is an imposter. An imposter of us. It’s a dark and represents a rough patch. It sticks to us only during the day. Its a friend during good, bright and sunny times.
How true! Likewise, wishes are like shadows. They are on an all time high during good times. They sink deep down our hearts when we we become a victim to circumstances.
Its interesting to note that when we chase a wish, it goes farther away. Just like a shadow. But, the minute we turn our back to the same wish, it ends up chasing you. Again, just like a shadow.

All images it clicks, stores and reproduces are more than 300 dpi resolution. All videos are higher than HD quality. Better than any of the sought after DSLRs!
Too many lessons. Rightfully so, too many learnings. Life teaches. And it teaches practical stuff. Raving, ranting and cribbing will go on. Some lessons (or incidents) get etched in memory for a lifetime. And we all take a lifetime to grow up. As long as we realise, we are good.
Life is a lot like the accelerator-clutch balance. The key is not to move back (or look back) or stop while navigating an uphill road (read: task)
Expecting life to be perfect is like expecting only the white hair in your head to fall. Precisely why life is also compared to an ECG. It’s ups and downs mean you are alive and kicking butts! So, to put it crudely – Life is a lot like toilet paper. You are either on a roll or taking shit from an asshole!
And expecting life to be fair to you always is a criminal offence. Mortals will be good to you only at your funeral. #PlissNote!
So the long and short of it is LIVE IT or LEAVE IT, but if you choose to LIVE IT, then LOVE IT too

An introspection as to why we celebrate the beginning of an end or the end of a beginning?
A new year for sure, but the same old months. A good 365 days to deal with. Typically the 'old wine in a new bottle' syndrome. With the advent of one more year, its that time, when you tell yourself 'I will eat less, work more and work out even more'. Well, yes. Year ends. Hopes don't. Because every second is unique. Make it special.
We love to live in the moment as long as we are in love with that moment. Make every second your own, be it good, bad or ugly. The good lingers, the bad teaches and the ugly reminds you joy and woe are woven fine.
But to our greatest misfortune, this too shall pass. Oops. One more year gone. In a jiffy. What just happened?
