Are you crazy!?!
Some of my friends think I am absolutely crazy. And thankfully they are true enough to tell it to my face. The best part is – I already know that and I am proud of the fact. I guess that makes me even more crazier. Anyhow, my question is – who in this sane world isn’t crazy? In my opinion, all of us are little bit crazy about something or someone. Some of us, like me, are nuts about everything and everyone. Some others chose to conveniently change the definition of being crazy to avoid falling into that category. However, I would still snugly fit them into the same category. I have…
Who am I
Who am I Where did I come from Questions I asked from time to time One day I realize It doesn’t matter Where I came from and where I’ve been All that matters is where I am and what love means to me One baby step at a time, I tread forward A minute life in the vast dreariness of life Soon it dissipates, gushes out into the emptiness What is left is the body I used to call mine Was it worth it, I ask now? To have used a life but not lived it Would I ever be given another chance to a new life Would I still ask…
We call our mom “Matrix”. Don’t know when and why we started calling her this, but it seems like forever. People ask us – what does Matrix mean? To me “Matrix” means a complex structure made up of many layers. It is impossible to understand the whole structure unless you understand each layer at a time. Out of curiosity, I also decided to search the meaning of Matrix. To my surprise I found a completely new meaning. As per dictionary.com, Matrix is something that constitutes the place or point from which something else originates, takes form, or develops. I thought this makes complete sense because Mom is the place where we all start from – physically, emotionally and spiritually. My Matrix to me is the pillar on which…
Stuff only girls can get away with!
Bought a pair of ultra jazzy junk bangles at a store recently. When buying I thought my daughter will love these. Today morning, while I was searching for something to make me feel special, I found them, lying neatly in my drawer, twinkling, calling me, teasing me and daring me to wear them. And yes you guessed it, I ended them wearing them myself. And yeah, I feel 20 years younger myself. All day long, I have been thinking – what fun it is to be a girl. There is so much we can do, some of it sane and quite a lot of it completely insane. That’s how this…
Would you rather have loved and lost, than not to have loved at all?
A dear friend asked me – what if the girl he loves doesn’t love him back. My response: We love someone because we love them. We don’t love someone because they will love us back. Then why do we question our love, if our love is not reciprocated. I have quoted this from the Geeta a lot many times before, and I quote it again now “Karma kar phal ki chinta mat kar” (Do your deed without worrying about the reward). The reward for a good deed is the deed itself. When we truly love someone, the reward for our love is the love that we have within us. It…
Me, Myself and My thoughts
Me: Do I have to work more? It is already 12 in the night. Myself: You had such a big cup of coffee, plus there is no sleep in sight, so you better work Me: Yeah, you are right, but what the heck – I am not even working, i am blogging Myself: So stop blogging and get back to work Me: Ok, Ok, just a couple of minutes more. let me finish this blog. Myself: You are nuts Me: Yeah, and if you kept quite, then the blog would have been over by now. Myself: (thinking) I better not say anything more. My Thoughts (not saying anything, just thinking)…
Five reasons to be thrilled when you are sick
I seem to be down with some kind of viral infection. Don’t know which one it is yet, and honestly doesn’t matter, as long as I know it can cure itself in a day or two. Top 5 reasons why I am thrilled that I am sick – I can prop up my feet onto bed and just sleep for hours together My mind which seems to be on a constant race nowadays, has completely shut down. I am floating mid air, atleast two feet above ground level; my mind drifting between clouds and stars All family and friends calling and checking on me, pampering me and asking to take…
Consulting Rule Book
Came across some eccentric behavior of consultants that could be put together to create the Consulting Rule Book. This is completely on a lighter note. Doesn’t mean to offend anyone in any way. So here goes – Never close your Inbox. The world will stop if you don’t respond to emails within 5 seconds. Keep your phone always busy or switched off. The longer someone has to wait to reach you, the more important you are. When you are exhausted and the most important thing you need is sleep, you call friends over for drinks. When you are busy checking Facebook and your boss walks behind, tell them you are…
Dear fellow bloggers, why so sad?
Dear fellow bloggers, why so sad? Why are all the posts about anger, injustice and bad? Life is what we make of it, life is what we choose to remember and spread By blogging about negatives, we are not moving ahead You have followers, therefore you have power Use it responsibly to make a positive impact What we consider as a bane, could be an opportunity in disguise Not all are blessed with minds like yours; please help others in the find We don’t need reminders on how tough life is We need passion and belief that can spread hope and happiness
It’s nothing personal
A lot of times at work, we give honest, blunt and harsh feedback. I am sure we look like the bad boss who never ever understands. Lately, I have been there much more than I like. As business grows, we are all under immense pressure to grow with it. Sometimes we know what we need to do in order to grow, but sometimes we all need to be guided. Feedback is just another way of guiding. I keep telling my team, it is just feedback to help them improve and in return help the organization improve. They should not for a minute think there is anything personal about it. It…
