Highlight

There are millions of people living on this planet some successful,
some even more and some not at all,
Some aspiring to be something, some losing hope,
some struggling
All of them living their own stories
When compiled we all become a part of the story of this universe
The more you contribute the bigger part you become of that story
Some get chapters to their names
while for some just a couple of lines
But does that really matter?
There are stories of hundred pages
But there’s always that one line that you can’t stop yourself from highlighting
And makes you feel like a part of it
I wanna be that part in the story of this universe
It is not necessary that everybody likes the same part of a story
I’d wanna be a part that
I will highlight,
memorize, and
copy a million times in my diary 
And for that,
It is certain that I will experience
Drama, Comedy,
Love, Heartbreak,
Victory, Failure,
Disappointments…
But in the end It’ ll could be a Happy Ending (Can not be sure of that, can we?)
But in the end, it’ ll all be well
and highlight-worthy!!

-Not all bestsellers have happy endings

 

 

To the Scariest of all

Dear………….
you scare me more than what Annabelle ever did,
you make me cry more than what The Nun ever did,
you are a bigger curse than that of Chucky’s,
And like every horror movie only one person can see you (me)
When I try telling others about you they do not believe you exist
and tell me its all in my head,
I know they will believe me only when it’s too late
or
when they see you themselves
Now I have seen enough horror stories to find a way to fight you,
but none of those creatures are like you
because they attack only when they find you alone
or at dark nights,
Unlike you
who scares me even when I am in a place full of people
Even in the brightest days
Even in the holy places
But this does not break me
I will defeat you
I know it will take time
It will take patience
and alot of therapies
but I will not let you be the end of me
Even if they don’t believe you exist

– The ghost in my head!
Depression

 

 

The world is a library of people

They say you must not judge a book by its cover
But is it really possible for us to not judge people at all?
Isn’t it important for us to look at people and make an opinion
to keep us away from bad company
Because maybe reading a book and realizing it isn’t good in the last chapters won’t make a lot of difference
But that’s not the same with human beings
Being with a wrong person can be disastrous
Thus,
We must not judge a book by its cover
but we must make a temporary opinion about people
on the basis of their deeds, behavior, vibes, communication, energies, perspective, portrayal, the way they treat others
You can know them better and always laugh upon your 1st draft opinion (which you must keep with yourself until too sure!)
but till you know them, its better you watch out!

Always remember however bad a book is, never spread rumors about it
Maybe the book which you did not like could be someone’s favorite
Let others decide for themselves, you take prudence for yourself and try finding your book!

-Sometimes books with the worst reviews have the best stories to tell!

Failure

Failure is a Motivation in life
it does not pamper you like other people
but it tests you,
hard enough to make you step out of your comfort zone
But failure is a motivation only when you don’t stop after that failure, rather you keep going
So, if life is a mirror
Failure is a broken mirror
The only thing it is useful for is to take a lesson and be more prudent next time
And don’t dwell on it or keep it there for too long
You might step on it and hurt yourself and
bleeding with guilt and regret after a failure
doesn’t help in healing
So the broken mirror, It is just there to teach you a lesson you must learn
After which you must clean it up and focus on making a new mirror with old lessons!

It makes the success taste so much better!!

-at times there’s nothing like a mosaic painting

Circle of love

I remember the time my Nani used to tie my hair while getting me ready for school and I used to tell her stories of my class
and today as I comb her hair because her feeble hands cant anymore and now she tells me her stories

Camera, Filters, Upload!

Welcome to the theatre of social media


Where we play the roles of a director, writer, protagonist……
of the movies we call stories 

Where we have learnt to fool people
by showing them the evens
like the odds don’t exist
the good
like the bad does not exist

Where you have gotten them to believe that
quintessential life is one that is lived large and extra ordinarily

Where you have used the filters to hide you insecurities
while spreading them to your audience

Haven’t these stories made it easier for the world to know
Who is your partner (BAE as they call it!)
Because as a director of the movie you get the right to choose
“Who will I declare as my love, friend, enemy and acquaintances”
Also giving you the opportunity to decide for how many episodes
will they last

Because like the attendance sheet of college
you need to be present and active here
Or else they might forget
YOU EXIST (And Yes, they will judge you!)

Also the rule is to give more importance to  the publicity of love and affection,
fear and hesitation,
Because how will anyone ever know what you feel
Until you publicly acclaim it

Where these theatres have also performed the work of courts
Not as the court of justice but of incomplete and meddled knowledge
But this hasn’t stoped them from passing strict judgements 
over serious issues and disasters while sitting at home and sipping some cola

And don’t you think they do not have the pressure of how will this movie perform
Because they swell their fingers by tapping on insights to check the no. of views,
no. of likes, etc

Thus, today there is no need to go to a theatre for a movie
There are just too many playing around you
With no show time restriction, no torrents required

Like every other movie how smartly have we edited
the behind the scenes and
only shown the parts that were necessary
For people to see how good is your life
and moral of the movie;

making them feel insecure and comparing to others

Now since we have all that is required for a movie
Lets us also have an honest disclaimer.

 

-Isn’t it tiring playing all the roles alone?
