Addicted

Lying down at 3.30 am today, I cant help but realise that I'm addicted to a hell lot of things. Just cant survive without these silly n not so silly things. So half asleep and eyes half closed I'm putting up this post using my baby... my beloved phone. Things for which I'm hooked to death :-

1. My Love - The most important thing.
2. Chocolates - Preferably dark chocolate. Any shape, size. Just cant live without it. My last wish would be to be buried in a coffin made of chocolate.
3. Coffee - Steaming hot cappuchino, 1 when I wake up, 1 in office after breakfast and 1 at 4, 1 when I get back home after work. The secret for me being an insomniac is revealed :P.
4. My baby no 1, cellphone - Either I'm talking on it or playing a game on it or its just lying quiet in my pocket. It just has to be around me.
5. My baby no 2, laptop with my beloved internet - Posted a blog on this earlier so no more comments :-)
6. Lemon Iced Tea - Barista rocks!!
7. Reading - Books are my best friends.
8. Talking - I can talk million to a dozen in 5 mins. I'm just used to it, what do I do? :)
9. Music - The only time i'm not speaking is while listening to music.
10. Kohl - Cant step out of my house without doing up my eyes. Makes me feel incomplete.
11. Priya - I'm happy, she has to be around. I'm sad, she has to. N she has always been :-)

These are the people or things which make me. I just cannot live without them. 

Judaai ka tamasha


Well just as I returned from my depressing journey today morning, all i wanted was to laze around n watch some tv with a cup of piping hot coffee. While changing channels, I saw Sridevi smiling on ZEE tv. I am huge fan of hers. What an actress. Can never forget her in Sadma, Chaalbaaz and her yellow saree in Lamhe. An amazing actress. So i decided to watch this particular movie going on called "Judaai". One of the most crappiest n baseless movie I have ever seen. Staring Anil Kapoor and Urmila too. The script writer must have died of a panic attack after the movie released.

Here goes the story. Sridevi is a middle class housewife who dreams big. Anil kapoor is her husband who strives hard to meet his money-hungry wife's demands. Urmila yeah Urmila Matondkar indeed (God knows what was she thinking) is a rich spoilt girl who falls in love with Anil Kapoor. She is ready to goto any extents to get him. On learning that his wife is craving for wealth she strikes a deal with her. The deal...... If Sridevi allows her to marry Anil kapoor ( who is Sridevi's husband) she gives her 2 crores. N our middle class housewife looking to lead a luxurious life agress n sells.... yeah you read that right, sells her husband for 2 crores. I wouldnt give away the guy I love for the world. He is mine n only mine. This movie totally goes bonkers. It describes the most pavitra rishta or Marriage as a joke. What follows next is drama n competition to be the Biwi no 1. Crazy n pathetic are the words that describe this movie perfectly. 

The climax only got worse. The woman who paid 2 crores for a man, decides to leave him in the end to his first wife. Even though she is pregnant with his kid. Comeon Urmila you surely can do better than this. You are the one who gave us Ek hasina thi, Kaun, Pyaar tune kya kiya n Rangeela. Ya was that just Ramu ka karisma?? I dont know when this movie was released nor do I want to look up in IMDB. The bottom line is this movie sucks to no end. Sridevi is amazing as usual, but when the plot makes no sense so dont the actors. Anil Kapoor has never looked this henpecked before. N his chest hair.... Yikes made me wonder why was he wearing a black sweater under his shirts. Thank Slumdog millionaire for keeping him suited up.

Well, people who have totally lost it or have lotsa time to waste n go ahead n watch this.

Love at its best

One of the best love song I've heard in a long time...

Ho..ho..
Baby
Come stand by my side
Come and be my guiding light
O i ll be what you want me to be
I will give all my 
love in whole of my life

Soniyo o soniyo
Tumhein dekhta hoon to sochta hoon bas yahi
Tum jo mera saath do
Saare ghum bhula ke
Jee lun muskurake zindagi

Tu dede mera saath tham le haath
Chaahe jo bhi ho baat
Tu bas de de mera saath

Tu dede mera saath tham le haath
Chaahe jo bhi ho baat
Tu bas de de mera saath

I get this feeling now
I cannot wait no longer
I know your love will keep me happy
Will keep me stronger
I get this feeling now
I cannot live without you
I know your love is the only one so true

Raahon mein tanha hoon saath le chal yun
Sang tere safar poora karun

Raahon mein tanha hoon saath le chal yun
Sang tere safar poora karun

Kya kahun aye zindagi
Tu hai meri saans
Rehna tu paas har ghadi

Tu dede mera saath tham le haath
Chaahe jo bhi ho baat
Tu bas de de mera saath
Tu bas de de mera saath

Tujhko jo paaya to hai ye lagta kyun
Baahon mein bas teri mehfooz hoon

Tujhko jo paaya to hai ye lagta kyun
Baahon mein bas teri mehfooz hoon

Tum bano saaya mera
zindagi mein aao
Zindagi bitaao bas yahin

Tu dede mera saath tham le haath
Chaahe jo bhi ho baat
Tu bas de de mera saath
Tu bas de de mera saath

Baby
Come stand by my side
Come and be my guiding light
O i ll be what you want me to be
I will give all my love in whole of my life

Baby
Come and be my guiding light

If Only

If only I had done the things
That keep true love alive,
I wouldn’t have to acknowledge now
That our love cannot survive.

If only I had described to you
The joy you brought to me,
Instead of bringing you complaints,
You wouldn’t have set me free.

If I had touched you, kissed you,
Love,If I had loved you stronger,
If I had appreciated you,
We would have lasted longer.

If I had often said to you,
"It’s you whom I adore,"
Perhaps you’d still be with me now,
If I had told you more.

If only I had treated you
As if we were best friends,
I wouldn’t be alone in grief,
As our faded love finally ends.

If only I didn’t have to say,
"If only, my love, if only,
"I wouldn’t be all by myself
So sorry, sad and lonely.

Life

Life is so unpredictable. N trust me not in a good way. The moment you think that life cannot get better or worse than this, the next day something much better or worse happens. Its crazy. Life is just like a roller coaster ride. God knows what twists n turns awaits you next. Its pathetic that all you can do is sit and watch helplessly. Its so frustrating at times. When you just see a tiny ray of hope its just crashed. Its said that life is like a drama stage, n we are the characters in it. If so, where are the audience? Who are the people that are enjoying the fun? Who are the ones clapping in our joy n crying in our pain?

Never have I felt so helpless. Everything seems to be slipping off my hands, n all I can do is watch it going away. It would have been so nice if we could control life. Is there anyone in the world whose life has moved in the exact way as they intended it to? Why are "If's" and "But's" always a part of life? When will a day come when we will be completely satisfied with life? When will things go according to how we want it to go?

Its so frustrating to live without knowing what is gonna happen to you the next day. Look at this, I always thought that I'll be blogging on my laptop, but today I'm using my phone to blog. I'm stuck in such a hapless situation that everyone seems to be rushing ahead of me, while I'm still stuck where I was a year ago. There is always a hope that things will get better. But you cant live your entire life just hoping things to get better can you? My Orkut status says "Hope may not guarantee us a better future, but it surely does reduce the pains of today". Well then lets just hope things get better. Fingers Crossed :-(

The "J" word

Well this is a word that all girls are familiar with n guys too to a certain extent. Jealousy. The green word n the deadliest of the seven sins. There will be no single person in the world who is/has not been jealous of something or someone. Why is it so? Is it a natural tendency to feel this way? Atleast for me it comes naturally. When I know I cant have something which I crave for n someone else does, I turn green. Well thats life. Jealousy as far as i know goes side by side with love. Its cute sometimes n sometimes it can become a pain in the wrong side. Jealousy is of many types.

1. If you go to a party n someone else is better dressed than you n you're jealous - Absolutey Normal. Obviously you wouldnt want anyone else to look better than you :-)
2. You are totally crazy about a guy n he asks your best friend for a date n you turn green - ( Thankful to never be in such a situation ) Absolutely Normal again. But dont show it off, you're happy for her are'nt you.
3. You like a dress which is overly expensive, n you cant afford it. The next thing you see is a girl walking away with it n you just want to go grab it from her - Normal.
4. You top the class n your friend who usually tops doesnt take it too well - Not good. Be happy for your friend, this doesnt make you any less good.
5. You are far more better looking or achieved more than your brother or sister or vice-versa - Feeling envious here would be madness. Hello, they are a part of your own blood n flesh.
6. Trying to gain attention from a guy/girl by sticking on to someone else - If you're hoping that he'd be jealous, its definitely not gonna happen. They may think that you're with that person n back out.
7. Trying to win your ex back by acting like you're dating someone else n screaming it out from the roof tops - This is nothing but absolute madness. If you think that seeing you with someone else will make them realise their love for you, it wont. They will only hate you cos they think that you moved on so quickly forgetting their love.
8. Being envious of your friend's success is so so so wrong. It would only mean that you were never their friend.
9. Being jealous of someone who own things you dont is fine. But being envious of someone close to you is so not happening.
10. Being jealous of cinestars is totally fine. Well they have the luxury that you dont right?

Well having said that, I'm insanely jealous of Angelina Jolie, well... she has Brad Pitt.

ZooZoo


I am in love...!! Yeah, I am completely in love with the zoozoo's. They are so adorable. The first time I saw it I thought they were animated characters. Its so hard to believe that they are actually humans dressed in zoozoo suits. Each n every ad is etched to perfection. My personal favourite is the exam results one. Even the fashion tips n keep your mobile in silent is great. Actually speaking every single one is great. The person behind them is a genius, n I'm proud that he's a Bangalorean. Well actually I'm even more proud that he's a mallu. Well live long zoozoo..!

Music mania

I have always been a great fan of music. Romance n hip hop being my favourites. I still remember being obsessed with "Erase & Rewind" by the Cardigans. I used to play it on a loop the entire day, which eventually spoilt my friends ipod. Well... :-). He still is a great friend n introduces me to songs I have never heard before. N I'll just fall in love with it then n there. Donna lewis's "I love you always for ever, near or far closer together, everywhere I will be with you, Everything I will do for you", drove me crazy. Probably one of the most romantic songs I've ever heard. Same goes with "Love Fool", again by the Cardigans. Rascal Flatts's "What hurts the most", is simply amazing. Oh man... I can go on n on with this. This will be a never ending list.

Well the whole purpose of this post is to declare that now I'm officially addicted to hindi music. Its not that I dont like bollywood music. Somewhere, here n there I liked a song or two. I was obsessed with the title track of Pyar Tune Kya Kiya for quite a while. Nowadays when I actually sit down n listen to the songs I have on my phone, I feel amazed. Some of these songs are age old, but I just love listening to them now. Some of them I have actually heard, but not listened. Now when I do, I actually realise that bollywood music is not all that bad.

Honestly the primary reason for me trying bollywood music was Farhan Akhtar. God..!! He's so hot. I actually went to watch him in Rock on!!, n I loved the unconventional music it had. The song "Ye Tumari Meri Baatein" gives me goose bumps till today. So does "Tum Ho Toh". There are a lot of songs which may not be latest but are amazing. Here are a few:-

Tere naina - Chandni Chowk To China, had never heard of it before until someone mentioned that its his favourite song, I love it too now.
Jaane tu meri kya hai - Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, seen the movie but couldnt recall this song, wonder if its actually a part of the movie or not??
Baawari piya ki - Baabul, cant believe that anything that has to do with Rani Mukerji can be good.
Dekha jo tumko - Kasoor, this song saves the movie.
Oh re piya - Aaja Nachle, this song had nothing to do with the movie :P
Tu Jahan - Salaam Namaste, sonu at his best.
Chhodo na muje yu bekaraar sa - Rules, I actually saw this movie :(
Tu bin bataye - Rang De basanti, cutest song.
Bol na halke halke - Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, this song is only the saving grace of the movie.
Tumse hi - Jab We Met, a near perfect love song.
U me aur hum - U me aur hum, the love song which makes complete sense.
Aate jaate haste gaate - Maine Pyar Kiya, nice one this one.
Tu hi toh mera dost hai - Yuvvraaj, I hope I have spelt the movie right.
Khabar nahi - Dostana, man oh man... john rocked this one!
Bakhuda tumhi ho - Kismat Konnection, again cant believe that anything to do with Vidya Balan can be good.
Hey Shona - Tara Rum Pum, it sounds good only if your boyfriend calls/called you shona.

Well i'm sure there are many more, but I just am playing these on a loop now. When i get more there will be a new post :-)

It hurts to forget you

Last night while browsing through, I came across this. Whoever has written this, I bow to her.

This lie's become a part of me
For months, I've played this game
Acting like it doesn't hurt
Each time I hear his name

Ignoring what's inside of me
Pretending I've moved on
As if the feelings I once had
For him are somehow gone

Spending each and every day
With happiness and laughs
Forgetting all our memories
Avoiding photographs

But last night when I saw him
For the first time since he left
My heart stopped for a moment...
I couldn't catch my breath

When suddenly it hit me
As the tears started to flow
That even after all this time...
I just can't let him go.

Feel good about LOVE

A few lovely quotations about the most fascinating word: LOVE
  • And now here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.
  • At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet..
  • Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength; loving someone deeply gives you courage.
  • Dance as though no one is watching you. Love as though you have never been hurt before. Sing as though no one can hear you. Live as though heaven is on earth.
  • Don't hug me, it only makes me want to never let go.
  • I have you. A lover and a friend. You are everything I need. You are the sun, the air I breathe. Without you, life wouldn't be the same. Please don't ever go away. And if you go, then don't forget to take me with you.
  • I'm not supposed to love you, I'm not supposed to care, I'm not supposed to live my life wishing you were there. I'm not supposed to wonder where you are or what you do...I'm sorry I can't help myself, I'm in love with you.
  • If I never met you, I wouldn't like you. If I didn't like you, I wouldn't love you. If I didn't love you, I wouldn't miss you. But I did, I do, and I will.
  • In love, there is always one who kisses & one who offers the cheek.
  • In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything, and two minus one equals nothing.
  • I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
  • Love demands all and has a right to it.
  • Love doesn't sit there like a stone. It has to be made like bread; remade all the time,...made new.
  • Love is taking a few steps backward (maybe even more)...to give way to the happiness of the person you love.
  • Love is a sign from the heavens that you are here for a reason.
  • Love is missing someone whenever you're apart, but somehow feeling warm inside because you're close in heart.
  • Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
  • Men always want to be a woman's first love. Women have a more subtle instinct: What they like is to be a man's last romance.
  • Never let a problem to be solved become more important than the person to be loved.
  • The word love can be explained in thousands of ways, but the only word that comes to my mind is you.
  • The world is filled with reasons why I love you.
  • True love is like a pair of socks you gotta have two and they've gotta match.
  • We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.
  • When you smiled you had my undivided attention. When you laughed you had my urge to laugh with you. When you cried you had my urge to hold you. When you said you loved me, you had my heart forever.
  • Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly.
  • Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.
  • We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.
  • You know when you have found your prince because you not only have a smile on your face but in your heart as well.
