First blog post

This is the post excerpt.

This is my first writing for the blog readers. Hope you will enjoy reading my thoughts and spread my words more through your choice.

I was wondering what to write and how to start when I remember one of the incidences to share. Leaving in your hands to decide whether it is love or satire in the name of love.

I am not giving names to the characters.

After a decade when she saw him on the social networking site, she couldn’t hold her feelings than to contact him. She managed to get his contact number and decided to call him. He was too happy as he still loves her. Hearing her voice after 10 long years brought goosebumps on his skin. She said that she is feeling guilty that 10 years back she left him without any explanation to marry another guy. So to get out of her guilt she called him to say sorry.

Soon from that one call, she continued to keep a secret affair with her past while at the same time celebrated her 10th marriage anniversary.

Reminiscent

They don’t talk to each other,
They don’t meet each other,
They hardly know what’s going on in their life,
Still, there is something left between them,
How much she misses her only her heart knows
How much she cares for him only her mind knows
How much she wonders for his wellbeing only does God knows,
Still, there is something left between them,
Every day she wonders whether he ever thinks of her?
Every day she wonders whether he will ever call her back?
Every day she wonders whether he will recognise her if sees her again?
Still, there is something left between them
Days, months and years passed but she still thinks there is something left between them.

Remembrance

She does remember her promise that she will never break,

She will remain in shadows to take care of you that you will never rate,

She knows you feel lonely and alone which she never wanted,

She just left you as you made her feel so much unwanted,

Yes, she can see the pain in your eyes but can only pray,

She does miss you but promised herself to never express,

She wants you to be happy and nothing does she expect,

She is that same girl whom you have once met.

Smitten in Love

Love is the simplest emotion yet complicated feelings to understand. You may love someone endlessly without any expectations and at the same time, you might feel it incomplete if there is no such reciprocation. You might be longing for the love of the person to whom your existence hardly matters, on the other hand, you might be living in a relationship that you have never accepted. Sometimes one can live in and for someone in a relationship without any intense feelings of soul connection. Thus, the love which is supposed to give you the epitome of happiness becomes a painful and suffocating aspect of your life.

So, when can we experience love as the epitome of happiness which can be as beautiful as experiencing Nirvana in a lifetime?

I think it is all in our hand. The most important thing we humans need to learn is to control our emotions in such a way so that it doesn’t get overpowered to affect our other emotions thereby destroying our inner peace.

Yes, I agree we can’t control our feelings. Neither we should. If one is in love he or she needs to accept that himself or herself first. But it is not necessary that the person for whom you are having such feelings is also experiencing the same feelings. If he or she does then you are lucky to experience the ultimate of love and if not then you are to undergo a kind of love that is self-fulfilling.

Sometimes we just need to love the feeling as the person without any demand of reciprocation. We need to accept the fact that not everyone is blessed with such wonderful feelings of love. At the same time, there are many of people who don’t have that ability to give due respect and value to the feelings of love. Do not keep any hate feelings for the person as he or she is ignoring the love you are showering upon him or her. Rather feel fortunate enough as you are not losing anything in this whole situation.

When Love met Happiness

Short stories 3
Priya was in her hometown Pune to attend a marriage ceremony of her cousin sister Neha. Everyone in her family has gathered to attend this auspicious ceremony. But interestingly more than Neha’s marriage, they are concerned about Priya. It was not hidden to anyone that Priya was in a relationship with a guy for 10 years who left her without taking any sacred vows. Neha is quite younger to her and that is a matter of concern for them. Priya generally tries to avoid such gatherings. But Neha is quite close to her so she couldn’t ignore her request.
Neha introduced Priya to her fiancée’s older brother Virat who was a tall, sturdy wheatish man with glittering brownish eyes. Interestingly he turned out to be Priya’s long-time college friend. Both of them were very happy to see each other after a break. They had many memories together in college days where they were best buddies but were mistaken as couples by other fellow mates. During those day’s Priya was in her relationship but despite that Virat proposed her, as a result, a distance developed between them. He left for his higher degrees to the U.K. Since then they were not in contact. It was a 7 days ceremony with different types of rituals. Those days flew with a blink and was full of happy moments for Priya. After a long time, Priya looked so happy.
Just preceding the night of Virat’s leaving for the U.K. he took Priya out for a long drive. He stopped his car in a quite lonely place and proposed Priya for marriage. He admitted he is still in love. He said, ” I want to be with you forever my love”. Priya didn’t know what to say, neither Virat forced him for an immediate answer. He just requests her to give him a reply tomorrow before leaving.
Priya couldn’t sleep that night. Next morning Priya went to a distant old temple ruin and sat there till the evening. Everyone was worried including Virat as her phone was out of signals to reach. Everyone was in search of her so was Virat. Finally, Virat caught her in a way back from the temple road. Before Virat could say anything Priya hugged him tight and whispered in his ears ” Yes I want to be with you forever my happiness”.

P.S. This is a new short story 3 for those who haven’t read short story 2.

QUESTIONS ASKED BY AURORABOROS

1) What/who provides you with the highest level of inspires and why?

  • Answer: I am inspired by everything around me. I find love and inspiration from my mother, who is a fantastic writer herself, Almighty, nature, friends, my colleagues, my students and everything that I see around myself.

2) What is your passion and what makes you do what you do?

  • Answer: Whatever I do I try to do with all my passion. As I believe passion is a strong emotion which comes due to an extreme form of love. As for example, writing is my passion.

3) What do you desire most in life and what are you doing to achieve it?

  • Answer: I desire to spread love and happiness as much as possible. I don’t know how but I think through my karma or work.

4) If upon death, you are to be forever captured in human memory a single piece of writing, what form would that writing take and what would it be about?

  • Answer: I want to be captured as a poem written in a form of lyrics to be celebrated as a beautiful song.

5) What are the most pressing concerns that you have regarding barriers to a more positive future?

  • Answer: I think we humans are losing our humanity day by day. We are more concerned about our needs and thereby bringing destruction to the mother nature. We should enhance our inborn quality of being human.

6) If you could choose between sleeping forever lucid and unable to control the context of the dream, and awake forever unable to dream but never tiring, which would you choose and why?

  • Answer: Though I love to sleep a lot, in this case, I would choose to be awake forever unable to dream while sleeping but never tiring. I believe to dream with open eyes to make it true in real life.

7) Think to the moments just before falling asleep and just after waking Generally speaking, what is the biggest difference in your thoughts, in your presence, in your being?

  • Answer: There is not much difference as I try to sleep and wake up with positive thoughts. Yes, I do confess that sometimes painful aspects of our life knock at the night time but still I try to be positive.

8) You are presented with the opportunity to rule the world, knowing without any doubt that in doing so, you will bring about a small period of total peace and tranquillity before you ultimately become corrupt, leading to much loss of life and followed by a return to the status quo. Should you decline, you are aware of the same level of certainty that the world will go on exactly as-is; nothing will change in the slightest and you will eventually dismiss the memory as a delusion. Do you accept, and why?

  • Answer: If everything is going to be destructive then obviously I would resign as I would never want myself to wash my hands with a pool of blood of innocent people.

9) You have the option to forgive any one single person completely for all their misgivings, famous/infamous or personal, alive or dead, good or evil, and in doing so, those misgivings are undone and that person is fully restored to a positive/neutral standing with everyone they ever wronged or were wronged by. Who you do forgive and why?

  • Answer: I would forgive every one of us, for the destruction we have done to our nature. By forgiving, them, I will also forgive myself for doing injustice to my surroundings. The destructions caused will be undone and there will be greenery all around. Air won’t be polluted as now, glaciers won’t melt. Life will get a second chance.

10) What excites you most about the current advancement of technology and what makes you most wary? Why?

  • Answer: It makes our life easier which is good but at the same time it is making us slow physically and mentally. We are getting addicted to gadgets which is equivalent to taking drugs I believe.

11)If you could remove or alter anyone natural law or human behaviour, what would it be and why?

  • Answer: I want to remove greed from human behaviour. I think this could make a beautiful society of equality for all.

Short stories 2

This time Priya took the bus instead of train to get back to her hometown, Pune from Mumbai. It was an early winter morning and she reached to the bus stop at 6.30 a.m. to catch the bus which was scheduled to start at 7 a.m. She took the window seat of the luxury bus and was waiting for it to start. She was feeling too sleepy, so she closed her eyes to take rest and fell asleep.

Almost after two hours due to a sudden braking, she woke up. She opened her eyes to see what happened and found her head was leaning on the shoulder of a man sitting beside her. She quickly took her head off and said, “Sorry”. The man instantly said ‘it’s Okay’. Priya recognised the voice and looked at his face.

He was a young man around 30 years of age in a full sleeve shirt. His face was as bright as the sun and his sparkling eyes were staring at her from behind the rimless glasses which he was wearing.

Priya was numb and both of them remained silent. Many memories came to her in flashback and the most painful one brought tears to her eyes. She turned her face to the window as she did not want him to see her tears. Neither Priya nor he said anything to each other in words for the next one hour.

Finally, they reached Pune. Both of them got down from the bus. Priya took her luggage and walked to a distance and stood there to see him for the last time. He was received by her parents and wife. They looked very happy. He was the man, Priya was in love since her school days. They had a relationship for 10 years. After, getting a well-settled job, he had left her to marry a girl of his parents’ choice.

Emotive

Humans have the most complex psychology. There are a few human beings who can hold their emotions with such an ease. In our naked eyes, they might seem emotionless to us. But is it possible to be emotionless if born as a human?

We mostly judge one’s emotional wellbeing with his or her relationship status. When such status changes we try to understand the emotional turmoil, the person is going through. To analyse the depth of love in a relationship we start counting the number of years they had spent together.

But is it always right to know how strong a relationship was or the depth and intensity of love between them on the basis of the number of days they were together?

There are few exceptionally emotionally strong persons who can get out of their decade relationship and can easily get into a new relationship within a month of breaking up.

While there are some who cannot even get out of half bloomed relationship that sustained for a month. They live in the essence of their old memories and take years to move on in their life.

The nature and depth of love in human beings varies so much that each one of us seems alien to each other though belong to the same animal kingdom.
