Random Thoughts on Life…

1)  Do not always listen to your friends and family, sometimes you are required to make your own decision.

2)  Accepting your failures makes you more clear-minded and see the reason why you have failed, so that you can rise without        fear of falling again.

3)  Don’t try to be better than everybody else.  Just try to be better than you thought you could be.

You Have The Power To Design Your Own Destiny And Life

As our old family member always said “ We are the master of our fate”. ” I agree that Life is a Do-It Yourself project”.  If we want to live a certain kind of life, we have to be proactive so we can consciously create life as we would like to. We must first mentally visualize and then physically create what we want. We can do this by having a clear vision and developing strong intentions. Your life is your gift, how you appreciate it and use it is entirely up to you. Generally we the teenagers always get tired after being unsuccessful in any kind of work we want to do perfectly. Then suddenly started to blame our luck and destiny. But the real fact is that we don’t pay much focus to the basic things which are responsible for the failure. So in short I would like to attract the attention to the Life Design Elements which can really help us to design our destiny the way in which we want it to be-

Your life is a big, beautiful blooming flower with numerous specially decorated petals making up your unique experience.

Your lessons are your personal learning and growth opportunities.

Your values provide direction and guidance for important life decisions.

Your vision is your overall blueprint for the kind of life you want to lead.

Your purpose is who you want to be and what you want to share with others.

Your passions are the things you love.

Your life’s work are the on-going personal and professional projects that you complete.

Your goals are mini-steps that help support your work, purpose, and vision.

Your roles are the parts you play along your journey.

Your supports are the people, places , and things that give you a sense of balance.

Your path is the way you choose to create your life by conscious choices you make during your journey.

You must find your path and bravely follow it wherever it leads…

We must have patience and focus more on the fact that make us life and destiny exactly the way in which we want.

A lot has been said on how men should respect women exhibit a better behaviour.

Here are some examples:

(1) Men should not perceive women as sex-objects.
(2) Men should realize that women are at par with them about their talent and ability and sometimes ahead too.
(3) Men have to respect boundaries and make sure their words do not make a women feel uneasy or awkward.
(4) Men have to respect women’s choices like what they wear, where they would like to go; to an extent of what time would they consider apt.
(5) Men should give proper and equal opportunities to women.

Yes, we men have to learn. However, the stubborn Indian male-ego is a tough nut to crack. But in all this well deserved male-bashing, I hope the women do not  forget about the set of changes required, on themselves. Yes, they need to do some introspection too.

Hence, today I shall try the unimaginable! Being a man, I will give women-folk some serious advice! I realize before writing any further, that this alone could be reason for a woman to have me smashed into pieces!

Anyways, I am a bold guy and so here I go!

SIX things, I feel women need to change about themselves to make this world a better place to live in ->


The artificial behaviour of women needs to end. A common female characteristic is the quick adaptation to feed male egos and their requirements. Accepting any kind of assignment given to them, no matter how tough or impossible it is for them to do or rather I’d say, playing dumb to allow a man to feel superior are just a few occasions when you do your “thing”.

If you are doing a good job at work and your boss doesn’t value you, do give him a piece of your mind. I’d say even say quit. Talented, hard-working people are much in demand. So don’t worry much about your future after you quit from the job. Voice your opinion.


Do not ever feel stressed about having a dual responsibility of family and work. It is difficult, but it is not impossible. The trick is not to expect an A+ in every aspect of your life. You can’t pull off a hundred percent in every exam of life!


Women, you need to become more ambitious, anxious and energetic. All young Indians — men and women, should have zest. Perhaps the way the Indian society is structured, our women are not encouraged to be as ambitious as men. However, for their own sake and the nation’s sake at large, all Indian women must develop ambitions and keep a desire to do well and aspire to reach their greatest potential in life.  Many Indian women have done better than men in various fields. keep them as your inspiration and move towards your dreams.

Your success is what would make Indian men respect you more. Play your part well for that.


In addition to the above, you need to educate yourself, develop skills, figure out ways to be economically independent. So that the next time your husband tells you that you are a wife not good enough or not a good mother or daughter-in-law, you can hold your ground with pride.


Don’t get trapped in relationships. Relationships are important. Being a good mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend and lover are extremely important. But don’t get too tangled. You have another relationship too, with yourself. Don’t sacrifice so much that you forget about yourself. Not regularly, but just at times, be self-centered. It is only when a woman would be confident about herself,
would she be taken seriously.


The last and the most important thing is to put an end to the constant desire to judge other women. Women are hard on each other. The women I know taunt each other now and then. Take for example, an overweight woman entering a room. Most women in the room would think,  ‘How fat is she! I am definitely slimmer than her!’

A girl in a short skirt makes other women think, ‘Slut!’ in their heads. A beautiful woman’s promotion makes other women wonder what she had been up to, to get the job, which they coveted too.

From an wrongly fitting dress to a badly prepared dish, you are so ready to judge other women, despite knowing how even you aren’t an expert!

I realize, as a woman, it is tough to survive in a male dominated world. Why be so hard on each other? So don’t get competitive with other women. Someone would make a better scrapbook for her school project than you! Another would lose more weight then you ever could! But, why would you worry that much? Just try to give your best and be confident enough about your work.

Concluding my rambling, I would like to quote a line from the movie Batman Begins, ‘It’s not who YOU are underneath, it’s what YOU do that defines YOU…’

So be yourself and focus on your deeds. Your deeds are the greatest route  for you to achieve real value and win the respect of this  society of which you are worth!

May you see, what I intend to say.

Take a deep breathe! Tell yourself you are beautiful, do your best and live a peaceful life.  

Cherish Womanhood!!!

The Talia Tale–Pain that inspires

“I have two cancers in my body at once,” Talia says. “Well preleukemia; which is a start of leukemia in my bone marrow. There are not really any treatments for it.  It is very rare to have neuroblastoma and leukemia at the same time.”

A 13- year old cancer patient, Talia Joy Castellano, who inspired the complete world with her video blogs about her, finally lost her battle of life. Her heartbreaking yet inspiring blogs taught us many things. To smile even with deepest pain in heart, to inspire even with the sufferings, to live even with the realization that the end is not far away.

Talia, battling with cancer from the past 7 years, lost her battle and departed on the morning of 16 July, 2013. The YouTube star continued to make videos for her fans throughout her battle, and inspired her adoring fans through her Instagram and Twitter accounts. The young You Tuber was made most famous by appearing on Ellen DeGeneres‘talk show ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’, and then being made an honorary Cover Girl by Ellen. In one of her videos, Talia explained,

“Having cancer has been a gift yet a horrible, horrible, terrifying thing. But I’ve gotten so many benefits from it…Having a YouTube channel and having to inspire people, and having people look up to me and explaining to you guys how I love and adore makeup, using it as my wig and having so much self-confidence to go out to the grocery store without a wig… it’s just amazing.”

Talia passed away after coming down with a fever, and she needed a platelet transfusion. The past six months have been especially difficult for her and her family, and they spent most of their time in the hospital. Fans have been following her progress through the Facebook page Angels for Talia, which is run by her family. After her tragic death, her family posted this statement on the page:

“It is with a heavy heart that we share with all of you that Talia has earned her wings at 11:22am. Please lift her beautiful soul, her beautiful light to heaven and please send your love and prayers to her family during this most difficult time. God speed little one, may you be free from pain and suffering, may your soul feel the light and love that you brought to so many of us on this Earth during the short time you were her with us. We will miss you more than you will ever know baby girl.”

Neuroblastoma, a cancer usually originating in the adrenal glands and developing from nerve tissue is the most common type of cancer in infants, but can also rarely occur in older children.  Leukemia is a cancer of the blood or bone marrow and causes almost one-third of all cancer deaths in children and adolescents younger than 15 years.

“Basically there aren’t a lot options for treatment anymore,” Talia tells her viewers in the video.  “The docs gave me to option of doing treatment or don’t do the treatment and just live life for the time remaining.  Having cancer has been an amazing yet horrible journey, yet every journey has an end.”

Talia says that according to doctors without treatment she has a couple months to up to a year left to live. She is considering a bone marrow transplant though the procedure would be very tough on her body because of the multiple previous surgeries she has endured.

“I’m going to decide on whether or not I want to do the bone marrow transplant, or whether or not I just don’t do it and the live the time I have remaining,” said Talia.  ”This isn’t fair to me anymore, I’m only 13. I shouldn’t have to be doing this.”

Talia’s YouTube bio reads:

I’m Talia, I’m 13 years old and I love makeup. “Make-up is My Wig” I like to say. And you can prob see I’m bald- I have cancer (neuroblastoma & leukemia). I don’t like wearing wigs so I wear makeup to feel good and pretty inside – and I guess outside. LOL!

Our prayers go out to Talia and her family and friends. May her soul rest  in peace…….

Loss of Innocence

I often wonder where does our innocence go
Indeed it goes fast, certainly not slow
Why does all our thinking involve “me”?
Why is it always “I” and not “we”?
A small child’s innocence is the purest in life
But as we grow up, we bury it with a knife
When we are small we tryst everyone
Without thinking and doubting anyone
That is why small children are adorable
All they do is play with marble
They don’t know what lies ahead
And soon all things will turn red
They will become a shadow of themselves
All they will do is I, me and myself
Before we realize all the innocence is gone
Exercises are done in gyms rather than lawns
We learn how to be clever, shrewd and mean
All we care is being slim and lean
People are murdered, hearts are broken
Love and peace is indeed a rare token
Why does this change takes place?
Is there a problem with the human race?
We were never taught to be clever
Nor kill someone ever
Then why do we grow up to become like this
And give humanity a miss
Have you ever wondered when does this change takes place
Is it a problem with the human race?
We were always taught to share
Now that is indeed very rare
Competition has taken centre stage
This is the sole reason for all the rage
Before we realise the change has already taken place

Life Made me What m I…!!!!

I’m product of long corridors, 
Empty sunlit rooms, 
Upstairs indoor silences, 
Attics explored in solitude, 
Distant noises of gurgling cisterns and pipes, 
Also, of endless books, 
To be left alone is the most precious thing one can ask of the modern world, 
i love that split second.

End of a beautiful phase!

End of a beautiful phase!
(if you are a lazy duck then its not meant for you. And if you like to read then CARRRY ON!)
(Lengthy hai aur Senti hai )
Sahi batau to buri haalat hai .. Its not about me .. Its about the phase from which I gone through. Engineering – A learning journey. Every engineer can feel such emotions on the last day of his studies. Tonight (11/3/2013) is my official last night in my hostel/university. Feeling like crying because as look back I find many people backing me. When I first came to the university I was kinda geek( not a perfect geek or you can call as it a keetabi keeda). My father always encouraged for good studies as he is not much educated. For him I entered into the science department. I can’t say that I was forced to select science. It was my choice also. University was like a new world for me. Ragging ka darr .. parents se alag hostel me rahna .. all this made me think whether I will survive or not. Finally got into the engineering wo bhi COMPUTER SCIENCE. My relatives were proud ke chalo humara ladka Engineer banega 😀
1st semester ke pahli hi raat ko seniors made an entry in my room – I will not call it as a ragging as it was not bullying. They just took general interview and engineering language INTRO!
they asked me to say swear words in my mother tongue – Punjabi. I did that coz gaaliya to 9th me hi seekh gaya tha 😛
Days passed , short attendance ka risk – New atmosphere with “PROFESSORS” around. College was like a monotonous life. Got year back after the 2nd semester. Many of the people don’t know about that coz I came over that so early just because of my parents and guidance of university’s Vice-president. That was very difficult time for me coz during that time I had 1st break up of my life. Parents backed me as they were having faith that I will bounce back strongly. Failure is always bitter. Came to college again, after six long awaited months. New room – new room mate. A different one. Playboy bolunga to usay bura to nahi lagega but respect to deni padegi 😛
Entered a new class with new people around and old friends by my side. Meanwhile Counter-Strike was the best stress reliever. Had great fun being with new friends. For the first time tried alcohol. In 2nd semester (repeat) just a night before the practical exams 😀
Semester ended – met new people out there .. then came the best semester of all time – semester 4. The winters and it was like .. whoop .. Section B and sab ke sab launde .. except a gal 😛 wo bechari 27 ladko ke beech fas gayi .. but with the time she got adjusted and aaj tak wo section B me hi hai 😀
5th semester taka ate aate GPA got better 😛 .. 6th semester mei life turned upside down when my father got heart attack. Due to family pressure almost decided to leave engineering in between. Some friends helped me to concentrate and they guided me towards my goal – degree. Father said – go complete your studies. During that course I fell in love with a Jaipur based girl. I was like very much dedicated towards her. She was standing there with me during my bad times. Went to meet her. Loved her a lot and it was a vice-versa act 
Semester 7, Grades got more better .. and had some fear of getting closer to the end of student life. Passed it with an ease. Good marks. Totally diverted towards dad’s business. Business centric mind ho chukka tha tab tak. Then it came to the start of semester 8. The “wella” semester of all. 3 subjects. 3 days week for classes. Section changed. Made night outs. Due to some reasons broke up with that girl. Unfortunate. I loved that girl more than anyone else. She took my mind off. Boozed. My year’s team won the football tournament ( the most awaited win ). Danced like anything at college’s fest. Full on fun. That was the best DJ night till now 😀
And right now, I am just went for another flashback. It was wonderful. A wonderful College life one can have. Tried everything during my college life except Smoking and “Nasheele Padharth” 😀
Leaving college tomorrow and memories are still fresh. 1st crush in college. Hostel Cricket. IPL matches in hostel. Every single thing made it Mesmerizing !
I think should conclude it here coz am having some tears now. I loved that Jaipur based girl. And I still do. I just wish that she will stay happy forever.
I had very good friends. Par sab kamine hai. Bahut mazey lete hai par I will miss them. Joined this university with a single name SANDEEP ARORA and now leaving with – Sandy , Sandy paaji .. paaji .. praaji .. sardar .. senti sardar .. etc etc. 😀
wow .. what a journey I had.
Well That’s Not the end. It’s the start of a new life from now onwards. A life coming full of responsibilities with memories on my shoulder.
I Will Miss My University. I Will Miss My Hostel Life!

Between Thee Dissertations

There he was
I saw him again,
standing outside classroom
I was staring him,
Thinking that some time he will,
He will too look at me.
Chasing him
Following him
Was becoming my habit,
I realised what m I doing with me
As books were my all time friend
I went to library
I saw him again…
I rubbed my eyes, I saw him again
He was holding a white color book,
I stood still,
Stunned where I was,
He was smiling
He went near racks
I was seated in library
He came and sat near me,
It was like a cold wave that has touched me
It was his ambience,
With my stare
Between thee dissertations
It has too happened
I expressed him my feelings
He was mature enough to understand me
An ingenuous yearn in my heart
I knew I dwindle away to exist,
If he were to depart,
I wanted him to be mine
I craved for him
But he was to divine,
To be mine
My heart was true,
My love was pure
And for all I knew,
It had no cure
One day he saw me
Blinked his eyes
And I felt my heart towering the skies
Deep down I knew it was too good to be
But still I promise
I never stop loving you true

Ek adhura pyar- bol utha

dil ne kaha , ab chup na rahu mai

kiyu itna use chahu mai???

Journey With Clouds

i’m speechless in front of clouds
volumes of nature were spoken
by those clouds within few minutes
i closed my eyes kept on smiling 
drenched in rain felt the essence of 
went in deep sleep in arms of nature 
The time i woke up i was in new world 
Which owe only happiness nothing much 
But just happiness all around
falling water
The splash of cold water
Changes life in a minute, in few seconds
For rest of the life
On left it was ice- cream
On right it was heart
Few seconds of break
There was again rain
The music of droplets was natural
Sounds so soothing,
I forgot every pain of my life
Nature made me realize
Lot more is there to achieve
Lot more has left to be seen
Few hours, I stepped into new world…full of happiness
Full of colors…A new day, with dew of new year
With smell of rain
I took off my life’s plane
In a new journey of 2013
