As i sit down to write, i find myself thinking about what i am supposed to be writing. I had someone telling me this:"It is ur blog, ur thoughts, it is U". Very nice way to put it. I decided it then. I am not going to think of anything. Just going to write whatever that comes to my mind first. So before you proceed, be warned. You may find something written about something common and mundane.
Recently, i had been involved in so many things that i never got a sunday to myself. There had been too many things to do, too many things to think about and too many things happening around. With so many events happening around like college symposiums, culturals etc., its difficult to get a sunday to one self without any intrusion. Something or the other would turn up. I was longing for a lazy sunday. Soon, my wish came true. I got one beautiful day to myself. Got up late, had breakfast, then went on to read a book, lunch in the middle, then sleep. Again got up, dinner, then a walk in the college and then browsing until late night.... God, what a day..!!! I really loved it.
Some might think that this looks pretty boring. But let me tell you, there is really no pleasure equal to the one you experience when you get up from sleep knowing that you can really go back to sleep if you want to. What a pleasure..!!! People say "An idle mind is a devil's workshop". But let me tell you, "An idle mind is angel's sanctuary". Sounds very biblical though. Remaining idle gives you time to think over things, to realize your own feelings, emotions, mistakes, desires, needs and all such things. Once, you're aware of what you want, there can be no stopping. You can go all the way and get it. You can complete a journey only if you know what your destination.
So take time to remain idle. It might do you some good after all. Better still if it is sunday.... Happy Sunday :)

Regret. One most hated five letter word. Most painful one. Regret is an emotion that comes out when we realise that we have done something wrong which could have been rectified had we been a little more careful. It is synonymous with repentance. But regret is more personal. When your actions affect a stranger, you repent it whereas you regret your actions if it had hurt your loved ones.
There are so many adages such as "look before you leap" telling us to be cautious of our actions. There is a hindi couplet which goes on something like this "Ab pachtaye hoth kya, jab chidiya chug gayee keth?" meaning "what is the use of repenting when the birds have already eaten the crops?." What is done is already done. Nothing can be done with it.
So dear all, no matter how angry you get, no matter how worse the situation is, never do something stupid nor say something foolish because spilt milk and spelt words cannot be retrieved. If you do so, you will be left to regret it later.
