Do you have any idea what the title of this post means ? Neither do I. So let’s start reading it together and I’ll try to make you understand what I’m going through at this moment. 

Almost two weeks and I haven’t made a single posts. Well, I wasn’t on a vacation, am just going through a barren phase. An uninspiring, dull time period. I guess, every blogger goes through days or weeks, when he or she has nothing to write about, but deep inside you want to write. I’m going through one such time and I prefer calling it “DRY DAYS.” 

I really have no idea what to write. I’m like a 4 year old kid, who wants to express everything but has no words to justify his feelings. I love to compose about everything. From politics to sports, marriages to scandals, fashion to wardrobe malfunction, religion to bedroom fantasies .Everything. AND then,when you were thinking that you can sweep the world off its feet, you enter your DRY DAYS phase.

Days pass by, and you’re sitting in one corner of you room, thinking about what to write. Ideas come and go, but fails to impress you. Your once full imaginarium, is now just a piece of Kalahari.You sit in front of your computer with nothing impressive in your mind.

So I decided to write about my Dry Days.

The blogging world is huge. yes, HUGE. Thousands of bloggers with millions of new ideas working hard day and night [like oompa loompas ] to make their chocolate factory.. err…blog stand out. At times when I visit other blogs, I say to myself “Why don’t I get those ideas.”  But for a lonely blogger, ideas are precious. As precious as hot water in North Pole. 

When you’re going through dry days, nothing seems to work. Dark chocolate, coffee, testosterone supplements [ haven’t tried yet], occasional gangnam style dancing in my room etc etc. As if the entire Universe is stopping ideas to reach your mind. 

That is all I can say. I hope this dull phase goes away with the wind and never comes back.

Do post your experience on any such event of your life in the comment section.

Thank You

Humanity is constantly fighting a battle for survival. Yet another time it lost. Now in Jaipur,India.

Showing CCTV footage of the tunnel. This video may be disturbing for some. Viewer discretion is advised. [IBN7] 

This accident took place in Ghat ki Guni tunnel in Jaipur. A couple and their two children(a boy and a girl) were on the their motorcycle crossing the tunnel. A truck, hit their bike from behind. The 26 year old woman and her 8 month old daughter died within few minutes and the man(her husband) and her son, were sitting beside their body, confused, disoriented, asking for help and cursing their fate.

This is all about the accident. What happened after the accident is even more pathetic and heartbreaking.

You can see in the video. The man kept asking for help. The mother and her daughter were lying there, bleeding for more than 90 mins..Not a SINGLE car stopped to help them. May be, the seat covers in their car is more precious than somebody’s life.  Will they do the same thing, if something had happened to their family or friends ? The man in charge of monitoring the cctv footage, did nothing, but zoomed in and out the spot, as if he was directing a movie.

What is the use of all the education and degrees and titles we’ve earned, if it fails us to make a human ? Those people may have expensive cars but are no less than 16th century nomads. Such people are curse for the entire human race. They are a shame for the beautiful city of Jaipur and entire India.

May their soul rest in peace

Amen

Yes it is, you’ll get to know in a moment. First, answer these questions and see how many ‘yes’ and ‘nos’ you get..

Did your classmates ever call you by names or spread rumors about you and you cried for hours? or said you are ugly ? or fat ? or mocked at your grades ? or laughed at you braces ? or your Dad told you that you’re useless ? or your boyfriend compared you to some other girl and you broke down? or your girlfriend is embarrassed to go out with you and you got mad at her ? .

Or is it something else that made you huffy and caused that displeasing feeling which ruined your day. [ do mention it in comments, the last time you got offended with someone ]

We usually get offended by people,we care, but,there are some sensitive people who get miffed with absolute strangers. 

Something or other has irked us, at different stages of our life. It is a human nature. We of us got frustrated, lost our minds and behaved violently. On the other hand some locked themselves in their room and cried for hours. 

I found a simple cute to all the frustration and that wounded feeling [which sometimes lasts for years] . It worked for me and it may work for you. No harm in trying, right. 

SO here it goes.

Whenever someone teases or compares or calls you by name or underestimates your potential or anything which discourages you. 

Say to yourself “It is THEIR opinion, not mine. Everybody has the right to express their views and they are doing it. In my opinion, I am a better person and I WILL do whatever I WANT to DO, no matter what the WORLD says” 

Getting offended is a sin, because its a sign of immaturity and an immature person doesn’t earn much respect in society. Keeping QUIET is not a sign of weakness and trust me ‘SILENCE’ is the most powerful reply to all the criticism you face [ But, when somebody talks about your mom, punch right on nose. Really, do it. ]

What I mean to say is, its your opinion about yourself that matters the most. What you think about yourself makes you special. Our personality develops around our thought. If you believe in yourself and if you love the man in the mirror, then in the end nothing else matters. 

-Peace-  

 

Don’t fall for that cute red thing called, YouTube. It looks friendly but is actually a trap. Yes, a TRAP.

Once you fall for it, you never come out. And , that’s what happened to me few days back.

It was a calm Sunday morning. There were few clouds outside and warm breeze was blowing. The green grass in my garden sparkled whenever the fresh sunlight touched it. It was a perfect Sunday for playing football (Soccer; I like to call it football).

BUT I decided to lock myself in my room and watch some amazing football videos and then, go out and play an hour later. It was the worst decision ever.

So it begins.I clicked on a video and started watching.I was mesmerized looking at the extraordinary dribbling skills of Cristiano Ronaldo. Then I saw few out of world goals by Messi. I was amazed looking at the skills and stamina of all those players.

Now, when I was watching the second football video, something caught my attention. Something, on the sidebar. “Fireworks at Olympic Opening Ceremony China”. Who doesn’t love fireworks ?? So i thought “Football can wait, let’s switch to fireworks” .

YET again, I was awestruck.  What a sight it was. The dark sky was lit with firecrackers of different color. It was the best ever firework in the history of Olympic opening ceremony.

Everything looked fine. But then, the video stopped playing. “buffering” as we like to call it. Seconds seemed like hours. I was circling the cursor around the video. As if, it will speed up the process. Patience is virtue, but not in the middle of fireworks and erotic movie.

The clip just started playing, and again, the sidebar played its trick. Something new caught my attention. ” A cat who barks like Dog”

“What the … !! Is it even possible.” That was my first thought. Love for firework vanished in a moment and I like a hypnotized slave clicked on the new video. To my utter surprise , a black cat was indeed barking like a dog. AND as soon as it saw the camera it started mewing again.

The sidebar brought up videos and I kept clicking through them one after another. I went though music videos, F.R.I.E.N.D.S bloopers, Dynamo’s magic tricks, Call of Duty gameplay, bodybuilding videos, meditation, cats , dogs and little kids with overprotective parents. I watched all of them. This went for, I don’t know how long. May be an hour.

I felt like a sailor, who suffered a shipwreck and was now flowing with the sea current. Now, I was reaching, the ‘weird side’ of YouTube. I don’t know how I reached there, but the last thing I remember is that , I was watching a music video of Rihanna. Then I saw something on the sidebar. “Rihanna exposes illuminati”

I was like “Alright, let’s see.” Secret societies are full of mystery and are always the center of attraction in Youtube.

I went through those videos one after another. Some say movies have subliminal messages, some making triangle with their hands as if it makes them look cool. Some even proved that the world will end on 31st April 2013..” Oh really?? would love to see how it ends ” .. Some other videos suggested that, whatever we’ve learned in school is a lie …. “May be that is why I don’t have a job, because I am the only one who knows the truth”

These videos, never seemed to end. Conspiracy, murder … blah blah blah..  blah blah blah .. blah blah blah…nothing more than bunch of superstitious men who look for conspiracy in everything and upload it on youtube. ‘Superstitious’ may not be the correct word. Feel free to choose a word which suits it better.

By this time, I was hungry, thirsty and completely stressed out.

Once again, for the last time, the sidebar showed its magic. A video caught my eye. “Romanian Beach Party”… OHH Yeah!!! … Hunger, thirst and stress disappeared into the mist. My hand, automatically reached for the mouse and the cursor traveled towards it.

The cursor was now on top of the video, I was about to click, when my Mom called me for dinner. Beach has to wait for some other day.

My mom called me again, this time louder.

“Wait a min… What did she say ??” … ” DINNER ??? ” ..

reality hit me like a truck. I lifted the curtains and saw, it was dark outside. I had lost track of time. Entire Sunday was wasted in front of my laptop and inside YouTube. There was no way I could “un-waste” it.

“Damn You Sidebar “

Less worrying and more faith, that things will get better. Less complaining , more hard work . Life responds to your attitude. Stay POSITIVE.

Stay Positive
