Rain Rain Go Away, Let the Shiny Rainbow Come My Way!

I don’t know how many people read this blog, or if at all anybody does, but here I am, giving up my sweet sleep and writing again.

So not many hours ago right this day, I was rather sad, for a mix of reasons. And I was on Facebook (as always). I opened a friend’s page and read their earlier status. Sadly, it was a sad status, they were sad too. And as I looked at the status of a person who is sad because of their bad romantic life, I just shrugged at the triviality of it. Just for that fraction of a second I thought, that was a stupid thing to be sad about. And then I remembered having seen them and talked to them, and I knew that that problem made them as sad as my problem made me, though completely different. And then by the time the second-hand of the clock took a next tick, my thought had completely changed. I laughed. I realised that if that problem causing the same hurt is small, then so is mine. Because at that very moment I also recalled this person who thinks that my problem is not even a real problem, that it can’t possibly exist; and yet that their problem, which I think they are insane for making it a problem at all, is a real troublesome problem. So I think, lots of tiny people have lots of different problems, and really none of those problem is really that big. We all can just laugh them off if we try to.

But yet again, problems are real, everyone knows and says so. Hence, I just view these as rain rain rain moments, and wish for my bright rainbow moment!

[P.S. the rainbow moment will come only if and when you open your eyes and change your perception a little, and work on your part to see it. 🙂 ]

Scenery & Fireflies

Ooh..That’s the “Birthday Card” I made for one of my friends. Wrote a glittery Happy Birthday at the bottom later.

 

And a month back me and my sister helped out with our little cousin’s holiday homework. We were supposed to make a forest ecosystem, this is what it finally looked like.

Happy SS everyone!

About the fireflies, I remember when we were out on a family trip and our bus couldn’t move forward very late at night. All the tourist buses were stuck for while on the narrow road. I was really small. All I remember is that there were a bunch of cool foreigners at the back of the bus, who kept playing music and some kid with a really cool toy that I really wanted to have. 😛 All the traffic was stuck because apparently a truck had a tyre puncture and changing tyres was a task that took time. So as we all are aware of, the weather in most parts of Northern India in June-July is pretty bad, so we all came down on the road and lay there; and at a distance were these amazing little flying dots that shone. That was the only time I ever saw fireflies and it was beautiful.

Family Portrait

The pattern of family lives in this world is that most parents are just trying to fulfil their dreams through their kids. Almost all people say, “I couldn’t have this or that growing up, and I’m going to provide that to my kids” or “My childhood was painful and troublesome, so I’m going to give a better childhood to my children”. Now I’m old enough to understand my life, and to some extent, understand those of the others’ I see. My observation – while some people do succeed in doing that, colouring a better family portrait for their kids than what they had, and I salute them, because it isn’t easy-going through difficulties all your life and still be patient enough to give a good life to somebody else; most people just fail. I say just one thing (unless you have super discipline and a wonderful life partner), ‘You are going to give to your children what your mother gave to you.’ Mother here can also be father or both parents/guardian. Sometimes you might think that you are doing better, but try to see through a third party’s viewpoint, then you’ll know.
