Tiffs and Greed….

Funny subject is it? Actually not, when tiffs are not taken appropriately (that too when personal and professional things are together VERY THIN LINE)....The week which passed away was one of the good learning’s for me, while I always knew when individuals highlight or show slip-ups in others the usual reaction would be to defend themselves.... But I never knew that a long and good relation/s can come to an END by doing so!

Well now I started thinking “am I at fault” for being what I am! Don’t know (my instinct says NO). I might have hurt, but definitely not for my fault.... Are you ready to discuss again and patch-up? NO. Can we sit and solve? Yes... Do I expect the same back what I give? Probably the answer is Yes! Too many things ha? I think I am grafting over these things time and again in relations. :-(

Greed is one of those things which is part of everybody and to a degree I guess it's OK. But is it OK in trusted relations? Naaa.... I don’t think so. I was bewildered, when I observed some of my trusted, in-fact very trusted person/s! changing words extremely opposite side, for their monetary benefits. Thus Greed rule even relations? Gosh where am I heading too?...?...?

“One's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions”

Above was very rightly said by Oliver Wendell Holmes, too many thoughts and ideas pondering around… the desire to achieve the goal is growing stronger and stronger, day by day, I know for sure (with blessing of my god, my well-wishers and my friends) I will not be the same what I was yesterday and today for sure for tomorrow… but the thirst to know the destination is driving me crazy! I am yet not tired, then why the thirst to know the destination??? – unanswered.

Added fuel to my thoughts are Sameer's views, we had a detail discussion yesterday (07 Sep 2010) where a point hooked me at “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the things you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor…..Explore and Achieve." I couldn’t be what I desired at my childhood today, perhaps that’s making me hooked to that point. Sameer is always influential with his views on me, in-fact I changed my opinions in many instances when we contested upon issues. My growing relation with him, also changed me on how I perceive things – for good.

After dropping back Sameer at his home yesterday, I was totally lost with my thoughts and was thinking till late night 1.00am onto what’s next?? Some feelers hint me and make me contented that something big is on its way, but yet again these are the similar feeling I always have whenever I think new and big… this time it’s something more. Currently the driving force in me is at its best and pushing me hard to do something new, big and achieve it, this time I will not let this force down till I achieve something big… might take time, but want to succeed it for sure. – hoping for best!

Sameer :: formally known as Sameer Chhabra, he claims himself as common man, with common interests, he also claims his tastes are very simple, he is always satisfied with the very best, nature is what he respects and anything natural is what he admires. I know him from 4.5 years now, the way he perceive things… simply superb and a good person to be with, but he is not as simple as he claims :-)

A New Journey Begins…

A package of blind commitment with love. Why I call it as blind commitment? I personally feel marriage is a one such relation where, two different souls are bonded blindly and strongly (in arrange marriages, as mine). Where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible… hmmm what else? the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family. I started accepting the fact that marriage is wonderful union, where a couple first learn how to limit their wishes, abide by rules, and consider the rights and needs of others… it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, whatever you call it, whoever you are, you will need one… indeed families are the compass that guide us, they are the inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter.

I am very thankful to my God for all the occurrences in my life, in recent past and looking forward for a beautiful journey ahead.

“ The will of God will never take you, where the grace of God cannot keep you, where the arms of God cannot support you, where the riches of God cannot supply your needs, where the power of God cannot endow you. The will of God will never take you, where the Spirit of God cannot work through you, where the wisdom of God cannot teach you, where the army of God cannot protect you, where the hands of God cannot mold you. The will of God will never take you, where the love of God cannot enfold you, where the mercies of God cannot sustain you, where the peace of God cannot calm your fears, where the authority of God cannot overrule for you. The will of God will never take you, where the comfort of God cannot dry your tears, where the Word of God cannot feed you, where the miracles of God cannot be done for you, where the omnipresence of God cannot find you.

Everything happens for a purpose. We may not see the wisdom of it all now, but trust and believe in the Lord that everything is for the best - Author Unknown”
