Living your life #CoimbatoreTales

Life always take a u turn when you can’t imagine even in your dreams but the outcome is good sometimes. When I was transferred from Chennai to Coimbatore, I least expected the same fun and energy from this city compared to Chennai. But it has been a good experience and a completely new journey with a lot of memories.

The main thing I noticed coming to this city is the peace and silence that is super awesome. As soon as you reach this city the main thing that attracts you is the peace, calmness and silence. Living in Chennai was like I used to wake up early, get ready, rush to office, come back to my PG that too fully drenched with sweat and exhausted, have my dinner and then again go to sleep. I am following the same schedule in Coimbatore also but here the weather is so cool and good compared to Chennai, traffic is also not that bad, people are very helpful and since the city is small the distance between two places is also very small.

Life always teaches you a lesson that you often forget to interpret and in most cases people are late to find out why things turn up the other way at last. This has been a very crucial time of my life because I have found new friends that are an important part of my life now and even I have lost few friends. I have faced very awkward situations, have cried many times, smiled many times and a faced a lot of situations that had taught me a lot.

I was born in Bhopal, completed my schooling from Bhopal itself and now for the first time I am out of the city. I have been surrounded by my relatives, friends and family till the time  my graduation got completed. The experience of living independently alone in a completely new city, the problems and challenges you have to face when you can’t get the help of your relatives specifically your family were completely unknown to me.

Meanwhile life goes on and doesn’t wait for someone to adjust accordingly. You have to adjust  and whether you like it or not you have to face everything that comes in your path. It is often termed as a path that is full of ups and downs, you can fall while walking on this path but you have to stand and again continue walking on the same path irrespective of  the pain, happiness, agony or anything.

Enjoy Your life and Keep Smiling 🙂

Moving Forward #ChennaiDiaries

So finally after waiting for 7 months i got my joining and now its time to enjoy the next phase of my life. I still remember the day I got my date intimation mail. It was 31st December 2015 and i was busy taking my tuition classes as usual when at around 1:30 my phone buzzed. I was so used to these unwanted message tones about marketing mails and a lot of things that I didn’t even checked my phone in those days.

I was delighted when I found that the mail was from the company in which I have been placed.And i shouted at the top of my voice when i read the subject line Date intimation mail.I was delighted and felt on the top of the world.Hearing my voice my parents came and asked about the whole thing and congratulated me. Then they asked “Kahan Jana hai ??”(Where you have to join).  I was so much busy that i even didn’t checked the joining location.

As soon as I opened my mail and read that I have to go to Chennai I was equally disappointed. The happiness, enthusiasm and joy all went away and I felt a bit sad and annoyed. When you are from north and you have to go to South India specifically Chennai then people around you specifically your parents will become so tensed as if you are sent to a Indo Pak War front.

I was tensed but kept myself calm and answered every query which my parents asked so that they are assured that I will be happy staying in Chennai. I logged in to Facebook to check how many people are joining with me so that I can get help from them and plan my journey nicely to Chennai.

But after scrolling and reading each and every Facebook post that appeared on my Laptop i was shocked that only two of my friends would be joining the company with me on the same day.I called my sister the same instance and told everything to her. She is such a charm that after chatting with her i was feeling so relaxed that i forgot everything regarding Chennai and focused myself to first plan my journey as a new life and a new city welcomes me with open hands.

The next two days when so fast that i didn’t even realized when time passed. Tension and fear has already started creeping in my mind the moment i read my date intimation mail. I had never stayed alone before and this will be the first time i have to stay  away from my parents it was haunting me like anything.I used to sleep just for 4 hours and  used to stay awake the whole night lost in those thoughts.

The next morning my neighbor Honey came to my house. It was his regular habit to wake me up in the morning and greet Good morning ! He came and hugged me unaware of the fact that I will not be there to meet him after few days. I love the innocence of kids, how they are so tender,cute and how there touch acts as a wonderful medicine to calm every cyclone in your mind that is making your uncomfortable and sad.

Honey my neighbour

I went for shopping in the evening so as to buy the necessary things i will need in Chennai as it will take time to adapt to a new environment and a new city. I noticed a sudden change in my mom’s behavior as she hasn’t scolded me since last two days. It was her regular habit but now she was pampering me with lots of love and care.

We went to Bhopal Utsav Mela for shopping and after shopping for more than 3 hours we decided to come back home. As soon as i started walking back to the parking lot my mom called me and said ‘Wait !! we should eat something “. We went to food zone and sat down to eat Aloo Paratha (My Favourite 🙂 ) as my parents knew this thing and they want to make me happy so they  joined me as well. We sat there for quite a long time revised each and every moment of my school and college life.

The Theory of Festivals

The five days Diwali festival has just began and the whole surrounding is just awesome.Whether its the market,locality and even the footpaths they are full of lights, people, decorative shops and a lot of stuff.Diwali is my favorite festival since it is festival of lights and i literally love lights because since my childhood days  whether its the lightning during thunderstorm or the bulb that hangs on the lamp post just next to my house these various forms of lights have provided me a lot of strength, energy, positivity and happiness.

We usually clean our houses, paint them with beautiful colors and decorate them with flowers, rangoli, electric lights and many more things before diwali, we enjoy holika dehan and play with a lot of Rang, gulal or in short colors during the festival of Holi, fly kites and celebrate the new harvest during Makar Sankranti and different things on various festivals.Our way to celebrate these festivals changes with respect to every festival.

But if its tradition, culture, ethics,ritual or anything else. It usually connect us with the people around us whether they are our relatives,friends,people from the society or even strangers.Festivals provide an immense feeling of satisfaction, a lot of love from various sources, extraordinary energy,positivity, attitude that is beneficial and a lot of things that make our life beautiful and help us to survive in this world.

Many people think that its a foolish thing to celebrate these festivals but they should think if anything is created by our forefathers its like fruit from a sapling that has just began to grew as a tree due to continuous nourishment and various factors like experience and a great amount of thinking that has helped it to ripen it into a delicious entity.

Man is a social animal and society is the core element that changes our attitude and the way of thinking. It acts as a guiding force that help us live happily and to experience various ups and downs that we face in our path. Festivals and the society share a strong bond since ages and i would say enjoy these festivals because life is simple and beautiful 🙂

since its my dad’s bday posting a pic with my daddy 😀

In love with nature

These days i am just loving this beautiful planet called earth specifically nature . Since last few days a small bird’s chirping is waking me right on time. I am not at all late and this thing is making my morning awesome.That bird maybe a sparrow(because it looks like that) just sits on my room’s window grill and starts chirping. Its voice is so pleasant and i have to wake up welcoming her and wishing it good morning 😀

Next thing is the moon that is so beautiful.Karwa Choth(a famous indian festival) was celebrated recently and i was literally feeling wonderful thinking that how interesting thing it is that a thing called moon connects a lot of people around the world.Sometime i feel jealous thinking about moon that why its so beautiful that people around the world simply adore its beauty so much 😛

Moon at night is so beautiful that you can spend the whole night just seeing it without even blinking your eyes. Your eyes doesn’t get affected a bit.It also acts a guide for people who are travelling or residing in areas where there is no electricity and other resources so that they can see things around them easily.

When i was in my school days i used to gaze the whole sky when i used to study the whole night during small intervals which i used to take while studing. Even today when i am awake the whole night i follow the same routine. When i am not in a mood to study ie:- i am simply awake i simply gaze the sky for hours and watch the beautiful stars and moon.

Even the sun elates my heart at times. Its a huge collection of energy just huge i would say !! And it inspire me to work with lot of energy,dedication and sincerity with thinking of the circumstances that your will encounter in your life.

Apart from the  many things in this nature two things: the Sun and Moon never discriminate people on the basis of anything. They are just the same for anybody ,any time and anywhere around the world.

There are many things around you that are the core elements of nature and they are just awesome, quite inspirational and things for which you can thank god 😀

So enjoy your life  and be happy 😀

Namaste ji namaste !!

You all may be familiar with the term namaste. For all those who are not familiar with this word its a form of greeting in Hindi largely used in the Indian Subcontinent and around the world.But since last few days i have been in a very weird situation. It made me laugh at times and i just feel pity at times.

We have a uncle who live in our locality who is very famous among us as the Namaste ji uncle !! lol 😉 He is so weird that he often obstructs the road when one is going or returning from somewhere till they stop and greet him Namaste ji 😀  Literally its hilarious because he even obstructs the main entrance and at times even the road in the morning when they board their school bus. And then he has to face their anger if their unable to board their bus or if they fall down and are injured.Apart from that even other uncles and aunty are found shouting on him to leave their way. After which he leave their way and let them go.

Actually respect comes from your inner soul. If you feel some respect for some person your head always bows in front of him to show respect. Its hilarious when you encounter these people around you and at last you feel LOL 😀

Leaving you with a pic that i captured from my terrace few months back when it was raining . Till then Enjoy your life !!

The Navratri happiness

Navratri finally ended yesterday and really it was just awesome this time. The first day of navratri started with the great news of i being placed and believe me that was one of the best day of my life. I was overjoyed and was dancing and singing as if i am from a different world ie:- i am alien. Really if you saw me that day you could have believed this thing which i am saying today.

The results came one day before and i was continuously biting my nails while travelling to the place where the results were announced. On my way i spotted around 10-15 goddess durga idols and i was feeling so nervous that time. But when the results were announced i felt so relaxed and relieved.

From the next day i slept like a crazy guy i dont know why maybe it was due to the tiring month that just passed away giving a excellent news of being placed at the end.For the next two days there were Mithai Sessions and some official work regarding some forms that were to be filled.

Meanwhile in the next days i just went outside to see various jhankees or pandals where various colorful idols of Goddess durga were placed. I literally love this thing and enjoy it every year.Maybe its the purity of these festivals that really attracts devotees around the world to India.

You can easily find various shades of life when you visit these pandals

  • While visiting one pandal i met a guy in the food zone who was a college student. He operates a Chinese Corner from the evening in that place and studies B Comm in a good college in the morning. When i asked that why he operates this stall he said he needs money to continue his studies and to bear all his expenses.
  • I literally love the footpaths because they usually teach me a lot of lessons in my life. So when i was returning back to my home. I found two pair of kids one who were poor and the other one who were from quite a rich family. The kids who were underprivileged i would say were sharing the dinner (that was small plate of i guess rice) while the kids that were from the rich family were fighting for a plate of Chole Bhature (which were at the end thrown on the floor)
  • The next one were the politicians that were as usual wearing a fake smile on there face and were having a fake attitude that was clearly visible.(Impressing the majority of people for filling the vote banks in the upcoming elections so ignore this thing :P)
  • Some guys were found manipulating people to earn as much money as possible.
  • The best part were the real devotees that were lost in their own world. Worshipping Durga Ji in every possible way.
  • I need to mention a pair of small puppies too that enjoy there world unaware of what’s going around them.

There were Garba and Dandiya nights. Were people were found dancing with full of energy and happiness were at the best level in the whole environment.There were dance shows, skit shows and various talent hunts for spotting new talents which was suitably rewarded.

The festival ended with Vijaya Dashmi that was awesome too. This festival is celebrated on Navmi on that day there are lot of Bhandaras. That serve delicious food to anybody which wishes to taste that awesome food 😀 Then we went for the Ravan Dehan  in the adjacent colony. The small ravan was made by the kids. There was a lot of excitement, energy and joy which was clearly visible on there face.

This Navratri was one of the best navratri in my life and i totally enjoyed it. If you have anything to share with us do share it in the comments section below Enjoy your life 🙂

A refreshing walk

Since quite a long time i was dying to go for a refreshing morning walk that is comparatively longer than the usual daily walk that at times is so boring.So this morning i got the opportunity to go for a walk that i was thinking since few days.

I have to wake up early today due to some task which i have to complete quite early in the morning. When i woke up, it was dark and there was time for the sunrise. The beautiful moon wished me good morning accompanied by a lot of small twinkling stars in the dark sky. Then i listened to some good songs and then went for a walk.

The cool breeze that was flowing caressed my face as i reached the vast ground that is near to my house.People these days are so busy in there daily schedule and have to run here are there that they don’t even pay attention to what’s going around there locality.The whole atmosphere was so pleasing that i was enjoying the whole thing.I even observed few people that at times made me laugh.

The first one were people with there pets. Some were like running so fast that i thought whether they have bought the pet for a walk or the pet has bought them 🙂 i literally love pets but when you encounter such scenes you feel like OMG !! thats interesting haha 😀

The next one were drunkards that were lost in their own world. Completely  unaware with what’s going on in the present world. There world lies between the boundaries of the road on which they fall after a hangover and then shout and run like anything on the passing traffic.

School kids waiting for their bus where the next one that i encountered on my way. A small boy waiting for the bus carrying a bag that was double his size was looking so eager with the schedule and things that he will learn in the whole day. Kids have a amazing tendency of expressing things which very few adults have, they express everything to there parents so innocently that you might feel awww that was so cute 🙂

Then the fourth one were the people who walk on the wrong side like maniacs in the morning murmuring something or humming some bhajan or song. They are so stubborn that inspite of telling them to please follow traffic rules they are glued to there own rules and traffic rules are like crap for them. Creating jams and accidents are usually because of these people.

There were some love birds too and the one that actually went for a walk with the sole purpose of talking to there partner. They are lost in there world that consists of there partner, the beautiful and pleasant climate, their mobile phone  and the road on which they are walking 😉 These people can be easily found on lonely areas, gardens or i guess everywhere 😛

How can i leave the newspaper vendors and milkman who are found daily and are always on time for delivering things.But look around you might find some vendors that are students or people who require money and are doing this job for helping there family.So dont ignore or disrespect them at times .

Since we have a construction site nearby i was also able to see a group of underprivileged children that were crying and some were playing. These children are found in each and every locality of the country but they are often ignored. One kid was so cute and was roaming here and there he even started playing with me.

We have a lot of things that are going around you but we are lost in our own world that we ignore and dont observe things. so just open your eyes enjoy your world !! and take care of the people around you . It feels awesome 😀
