A book of 365 days – Luminosity of Lost dreams


We all have dreams and quality of dreams , that we wish would come true. But , how when and where , we absolutely have no clue about it. And, so we are lost in it. Lost in chasing our dreams. But , we forget on thing while we are chasing our dreams is , the quality of our inner abilities. We are chasing mindlessly. In order to chase our dreams we have to defy everything , come what may , in front of us . Defy. We have to take that one step extra to achieve.

Dreams are big , when they are able to give us nightmares , if we are not able to achieve. There is always a thin line between what effort we are putting in to achieve the dream and we have achieved. This is where we need to defy the gravity and fly high. Without caring about who thinks what , and without thinking as to what will happen if we are defying things. There is always a thought in our mind that , whether are we going to achieve it or not. This what we need to defy and fly high.

And i did read somewhere that “Between the Luminosity of Lost Dreams and the Nebula of Nightmares…lies the space where we all have to defy Gravity, try to fly.”

When you try to achieve one thing , there are 10 people who try to pull you down. Try to discourage you and that is when you loose the luminosity of your dream. The excellence and the brilliance is lost. It is when you defy this gravity , that is when you make your dreams come true.

Dont loose it, hold on to it.

A Book of 365 days – Two sides of a coin


We all know whenever we flip a coin, there is a 50 % chance that we see one side of a coin. While the other stays hidden, this other side makes our lives at times uncertain. It can decide fate of a game. You win or you loose. Its all a probability. Humans have two sides at times. We get to see only one. If we are lucky , we get to see the good side and those who are unlucky are dead duck. The surprising thing is this other side of a coin comes in front of us accidently , but we are not able to see. Why ? I dont think so even i have the answers. But, yes this other side of a coin always has something for us. May be to learn. May be to experience something. May be to decide something.

This is very subjective, which would depend on what the other side has. Depends on whats in store for us. Good bad ugly ? That depends on what comes in front of us. We have got to leave somethings on time. Or the best thing is why not to turn the coin and see what was the other side. This helps us to form a perception on a situation , person , or anything else for that matter, This would not harm us  thats one thing guaranteed. Some times in a situation it is required for us to see the other side of it. It is just like a coin , we have to turn things to see what was the other side of it . Because what keeps revolving in our mind is a question ?

Why ?

Or may be what ? When ?

And we need answers , and in search of this we have got to see the other side of it. So flip the coin. And see what was the to other side of the  story.

Hope i made some sense out of it.

A book of 365 days – The most exciting moment of 2013


As always it was the most busy time of the year for me at work. Hopped into a new project , leaving my previous forever. After i finished my intial phase of project, It was time for some break. Holiday , i never liked travelling , but looks like destiny was about to change my perception this time. I never knew what was in store for me in this holiday, i was so looking forward to it. It was Kashmir , yes folks it was the heaven on earth Kashmir where i was travelling to for my 9 days of holiday.

After i had confirmed booking , i casually looked at my itenary , and the day 1 was quit interesting for me. It said , travel to Gulmarg and reaching the peak point and you will be allowed to play in snow for some time. It sounded quite interesting to me . More i felt like a typical movie location where the songs or action sequences were shot. Nevertheless , the journey towards gulmarg had begun. after a couple of hours of ride , the bus took a halt near some shops and were given fur coats. It was a bit sunny , i was not wearing too may woolens , and was astonished to handed over a huge fur coat and boots. Woo it was heavy , but anyways i took it.  As we progressed further towards gulmarg , it became colder colder and colder.  The vehicle dropped us to a point from we were supposed to walk towards , a cable car point which was going to take us further.

I started walking and this is how i looked after wearing that heavy fur coat . It was going to be a exhaustive walk , and it was getting colder.


We kept walking for almost 30 mins and then took a break , it was going to be a long walk . I was preety sure about it. After almost 90 mins of walking we reached the cable car station . My guide told me from here you will go to phase 1 and 2 , Phase 2 is 16000 feet above sea level .

My jaws immideately dropped. I had never done this. I was not even sure if i should do it. Well one thing was for sure, there was no looking back. I went ahead , i some how managed to board the car with the heavy fur coat on my body. It started progressing. Believe me folks the view that i got as we started going up was astonishing.

gulmarg 2

That was it , within no time we landed on the phase 2 it was peak point 16000 feet above sea level. When i was down there at cable car station , i  was sweating due to exhaustive walk of 90 mins. But now i was freezing , I felt the fur coat i wore was still not enough for me. I needed some more.

But the most freaking moment of my life was when i reached the point where i was sitting , and this was the most freaking moment of my life . I was on top of the world.  I took of my cap , my ears were numb , i couldnt feel my fingers , but i still wanted my one picture to be clicked.

gulmarg 3

This was it , i on top of the world. I wondered , why i didnt come here all my life. I should have, But it was no time for these thoughts , i wanted to enjoy this moment. And i did.

The most exciting moment of 2013. By the time i was back to my hotel i was half dead. I could not walk , but i enjoyed it.

A book of 365 days : For the love of my passion


It was a usual day for me at work , and more over a weekend approaching . The day when no one in this world wants to work. “Work” yes this word sounds very monotonous these days. We all are working, for the day of the month when get that nice amount into our salary accounts. And you know what i am really happy with amount that gets into my account every month. But , in past few years i was not able to understand that what i was doing is some thing i was suppose to do , or was i meant to do this. I was loosing out on it. I had not found my passion.

Imagine folks , you are currently working on some thing which is not your passion. But , what if you find your passion and that passion gets you money into your account every month , that too at an increasing rate. Isn’t that amazing. Most of us don’t have enough motivation . Our Supervisors set the same old goals and we end up saying at the end of the year that i did this and that blah blah blah.

Look back and see , what you say have you actually done it. Quite a lot of us would have monotonously achieved it. But , its not our passion. I realized mine with this simple webpage that conveys my words to the entire world who is reading this.

Thanks to technology which has contributed a lot to my passion. While i am typing this , i am not speaking a single word , but my words would go cross the boundaries barring all barriers.

We say for the love of god, I say for the love of words, for the love of writing , for the love of my passion. For the love of everything in this world.

My words are my god , my words are my love , my words are my passion . My words are everything for me.

So for now this is Shwetal signing off from this place. Hast la vista.

Enjoy everything for the love of yours.

A book of 365 Days : Baby Giraffes never go to school.


 Baby Giraffes never go to school.

But they learn a very important lesson rather early in life.

A lesson that all of us would do well to remember.

The birth of a baby giraffe is quite an earth-shaking event.
The baby falls from its mother’s womb, some eight feet above the ground.
It shrivels up and lies still, too weak to move.
The mother giraffe lovingly lowers her neck on baby giraffe and then something unbelievable happens.

She lifts her long leg and kicks the baby giraffe, sending it flying up in the air and tumbling down on the ground.
As the baby lies curled up, the mother kicks the baby again and again until the baby giraffe, still trembling and tired, pushes its limbs and for the first time learns to stand on its feet.

Happy to see the baby standing on its own feet, the mother giraffe comes over and gives it yet another kick.

The baby giraffe falls one more time, but now quickly recovers and stands up.

Mama Giraffe is delighted.
She knows that her baby has learnt an important lesson:

Never mind how hard you fall, always remember to pick yourself up and get back on your feet.

Why does the mother giraffe do this?
She knows that lions and leopards love giraffe meat.
So unless the baby giraffe quickly learns to stand and run with the pack ?
it will have no chance of survival.

Most of us though are not quite as lucky as baby giraffes.
No one teaches us to stand up every time we fall.
When we fail, when we are down, we just give up.
No one kicks us out of our comfort zone to remind us that to survive and succeed, we need to learn to get back on our feet.

Have a Nice Day
Its too big but worthit


A book of 365 days- When someone took your hand.


The day when you feel that you are the most lonely person in this world. You need a  hand. When you are standing in rains waiting for it to get over. Soaked in water completely , hiding your tears so that no one is able to notice. That is when you need this hand. But why ?

Let me make a confession here, i am a very emotional person. I can’t see someone in pain. And even if by mistake i am the one who is responsible for hurting someone , i become restless. My voice is choked and i cant stop my tears. This happened some time back , i was resting my head on the table with those unstoppable drops of tears flowing out of my eyes. Like a blast of uncertain lava of emotions that was holding inside me.

I felt a hand on my shoulder which reached out to my palms and was holding it tightly, the flow of tears coming out of my eyes suddenly slowed and eventually stopped. When that hand was holding my hand , i felt something was flowing inside me . A sense of comfort which was going to stop all my worries and calm me down. It was as if someone was talking to me. Saying that “CALM DOWN ! you are not suppose to cry.

It was the hand who was holding all my emotions. We all need it. At times, we want that hand to reach out to us and say i am there for you. There are times that when you have done something that has hurt someone, which is why you are crying. That is when you need this hand to reach out to you , to guide you , to comfort you. All you have to do is just walk along with this comfort and calm mind.

I am sure some day will come when i am calm enough to not hurt someone or make anyone cry.

A book of 365 Days – Sometimes holding on to things is so important


It was yet another day in a book of 365 days. Some times experience of a day is as long as , not a week or a year, but a lifetime. We hold so many things in our plate, which life has given us. But, not all the times we are stable. At times we tend to loose the sight. Today, i felt i was loosing out on things. I felt as if things were swaying away from my hands. Some times you don’t understand why things are like this in your life. But, the only important thing that remains is, holding on to them. Holding on to the time. Frustration, anger , revenge and furious thoughts cross our minds.

Today you might even feel like killing someone who has done bad to you. Which might be even justified, but the after effects wouldn’t let you live the way you wanted to. So the only thing you want to do here, is holding on to the time which is there, not loose the balance . Which doesn’t mean you have sit like a coward who is hiding behind a wall to dodge a bullet. But, patiently waiting for the right sight and hit it one go. 

When you have a gun in your hand , you are suppose to shoot. But, not in the dead air. But, at the right place. You have to hold on to the time.

We all are impatient.We want everything now. A friend of mine once asked me he wants to earn a million in a year. I said ok , do it. But he wanted to do that in much quicker time that anticipated. At times we want things to happen quickly , i am not surprised.After all , we all are only humans. But, the point is how much patience do we have to wait for that money to come to us. I bet a million dollars on this , we don’t have much .

The best thing to do is , make your effort for the money you want to earn and just hold on to things. It will to you.A car has 4 wheels , all of them are bound to align with each other for the entire vehicle to hold. That’s it , it overly becomes important for the vehicles to remain align and hold on to things. 🙂 . I might sound stupid at times. But , i am sure i make sense.
