- Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth
- The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that
never crossed your worried mind
- Do one thing everyday that scares you
- Floss Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes
you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with
- Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults
- Stretch Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your
life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they
wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year
olds I know still don’t
- Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll have children,maybe
you won’t, maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky
chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary…what ever you do, don’t
congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either – your
choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s.
- Dance…even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room
- Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for

people most likely to stick with you in the future. Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you
should hold on

Colors are important part of our life. Colors signify moods, expressions, and feeling. They make our life interesting.
White not only is the color of purity…..peace but of, clarity, normality …or I would say it’s boring….
On the other hand Gray is shady, unclear, mysterious….some thing hidden….
The same concept applies to people. Why we are attracted towards the gray shaded character in a movie or real life. Why a gray character has an aura which a normal –white hero doesn’t have..
Let me give you more examples of gray. Krishna in his entire life was gray character, Amitabh bacchan in Sharabi and Sholay. Although Amitabh and Dharmendra were heros in the movie Sholay but in the end they were nothing but thugs. Harry Potter. These were the charters which were liked by everyone because there is mystery involved.
So what are the reasons why we like these characters and what makes these characters more interesting::-
- These characters are very daring in life. You need a lot of courage to behave and do things in life the way they do. Can you afford to have the attitude of Amitabh Bacchan in Sharbi? We all wish to have that kind of courage or daring at some point of time in life. That’s the charm of if, something we don’t have and we lounge for is always attractive
- These characters don’t follow societal norms. They don’t follow any rules and regulation laid by society. We always have the hidden, unconscious desire to break out and not follow these norms as well. These rules are not natural they are laid by people living in the society. We are forced to follow the pattern. That’s the reason why we are attracted towards the gray shade and have that unfulfilled desire to be like them
- These characters are versatile, spontaneous in life. They don’t get up in the morning and go to office. They do not follow any pattern. Pattern is boring it’s monotonous. They just go with the flow and enjoy. And that’s all we wish to do but unfortunately cant. There lies the charm.
- These characters are mysterious. Their life is not like an open book where we can predict their actions. In entire Mahabharata nobody could predict what would be the next move of Krishna. That’s what makes them interesting and impels us to find out more about them and follow them.
- These characters have got mass appeal. Hitler is the biggest example. This gray shaded character impelled entire Germany to die for him.
- Let me tell you a story
- In a village Ramlila used to be staged every year during Diwali. Every year same story, same people playing same characters. Now how many times can you see the same old play again and again and again. People get bored of same old stuff. Most of the people sleep during these Ramlila. But this time the difference was that the Character of Hunaman was played by the most dangerous wrestler of the village and Sita was played by a Young girl. Apparently these both were having an affair and the girl was not allowed to meet the wrestler. Now everything was going fine till the entry of Hanuman and when Hanuman goes to find Sita. So this wrestler when meets sita in Lanka he just forgets the character he is playing and shout loudly “ Radha your parents can no longer stop you from meeting me. Let me see today who dares to stop me from marrying you, come lets go…Ill burn this entire show….and instead of buring Lanka he burns the entire stage. People who were sleeping till this scene suddenly were wide awake…and seemed to started enjoying the show.
- That’s why I say White is boring…and Gray is interesting…… ….

A few incidents again provoked me to write or should I say a few news prompted me to write.

Link to the story
- First news:- Digvijay Singh releases the book Aziz Burney, Editor in chief of Urdu Sahara News. He took the opportunity not only to release the book but also to slam RSS for their unknown role in the 26/11 attack in Mumbai.
It's not new. Congress holds the record for more than 100 years of appeasing Indian muslims by one or the other way. The party ruled the country for more than 60 years using the same strategy. But what a pity! The condition of the Muslim community has not improved by any means. They still have the lowest literacy rates and their economic condition is the worst as compared to other communities in the country. And now Mr. Digvijay's plan to link the 26/11 attack to RSS and highlight how RSS was a threat to ATF chief Hemant Karkare has proved it again. I would only say 'Shame on you Congress' for doing this to the country and I feel so sorry that my Muslim brothers and sisters are being fooled by them.

- Second News:- Statue of "Dadoji Konddeo" removed in Pune by Pune Municipal Corporation Shiv Sena go on rampage.

I am siting alone in my room, listening to gazals at 5 in the morning and suddenly I look back in my life and I find that life is a circle. Same things happen again and again like a circle. One thing is happening in life and it comes back again after some time when I will feel that I lost it. The only difference would be the background, people, things, incidents but actually in reality its the same. You are the same and you always be the same......

One one hand Mamta at a rally in Lalgargh claims Naxal leader Azad's death as murder and him as Shaid. On other hand our Home minister P Chidambaram says that "no one should support Maoists and the Government will not encourage anybody who does so". The irony is Mamata is one of the allies of UPA. My anger is over the fact is that why the hell are we selecting these kind of politicians. May be Mamta wants to make sure that this is her best chance to win the State election and would finally be able to dethrone the "Red Jhanda" and Lalgarh has majority of Naxal population so she cannot win the area without their support. Mamata is working as a worst railway minister ever then what is the gaurantee the she will be able to prove herself as a good chief minister when the means she is taking to get "The Gaddi" are wrong. Damn you Mamta for supporting Naxals.

I watched Raavan last week. I wanted to write a post on it since the time I watched, I know a lot of people would curse and disown me after the post as I have found none who has liked the movie.
Movie starts with mesmerising cinematography and for some time you indulge in the beauty of nature and the way the camera man has shot the starting scenes. Abhishek bacchan is improving day by day in terms of his acting skills but still some more was expected from him in this movie other than applying "Haldi" and "Keeched" on his face. But his overall performance was good.
Now let us talk about about the Insights of the movie. As the character Raavan has been a negative one in the holy book "Rmayan" the movie is of the same story but only the background has changed. Its a mordern Ramayan rest all is same. Now as we approach toward the movie and
- The Raavan falls in love with Sita and for the first time he feels weak. But unlike the original story Ramayan Sita also develops feeling for this evil character. Since she is loyal to her husband she holds her emotions back.
- The turning point of the movie is when Raavan doesn't kill Raam because he is in love with Sita and let him go and take away the girl. Still when Raam meets Sita , he is not happy about the fact that he got his girl back but his "Ego" of not being able to kill Raavan hurts him.
- Even while going back Raam is suspicious if Raavan has done something with Sita in those long 14 days. Sita gets disgusted and goes back to Raavan and Raavan without asking a single question accepts her which surprises her and make her realise his love for her.
- But it actually was a "Jaal" set by Raam to get Raavan and ultimately he kills Raavan.
- So to conclude "Only a person like Raavan can love some passionately because he doesnt care about other people and accepts her the way she is whithout any question on the other hand someone like Raam who lives according to public opinion. Someone who is a people's person and lives according to the people cant accept someone unconditionally and love unconditionally.
- Ram as he was in Ramayan as well in the movie is helpless in front the power of Raavan.
- As we watch the movie its not only Raavan who has Ego but Raam also has ego and the fact that he couldnt kill Raavan (In the movie) hurts him.
- In the Movie Raavan keep his love above his ego (As he doesnt kill Sita and let Raam go unhurt) while Raam keeps his Ego above his love for Sita (As he was'nt happy to get Sita back but sad that he could'nt kill Raavan).
