Atheist or Not? No I am not Atheist.. I am agnostic

When someone discuss about religion with me I give them logic. And the conversation flows this way….
People: What is your religion?

Me: I am Agnostic and don’t believe in religions. I believe there is one God and he is handling everything.

People: Do you go to any temple?

Me: Nope!!!

People: Oh you are nastik (atheist)!!!

Me: No dear!! I am agnostic which means I believe in God but not in religion.

People: It’s same.

You got to be kidding me!!
It’s not same buddy. It’s entirely different. I never understood the relation of going to temple with belief in God. Both are completely different things. To believe in God I don’t have to be in Temple rather I have to create my heart as a temple where God can reside.

Me: Have you read “GITA” or “Ramayana” (Holy books)?

People: No, we watch religious channels on TV.

Me: I have read both books. And TV is not the substitute of the book dear.

People: We work and can’t read the complete book.

Me: It’s just the dedication and wish buddy. I also work, I also do household chores but I read them because I wanted to. This can definitely answer your question about who is an atheist. Going to temple can’t justify your dedication and feelings towards God or religion.
Guys if I person don’t follow a temple doesn’t mean he or she don’t follow the God. It’s the matter of your perception not reality. Religion and God are different, God didn’t discriminate religion rather religion discriminate the God.
I follow what my heart says, I always try to be honest about things, I never hurt anyone intentionally, I try to be loyal and Love everyone. Isn’t these traits are preached in the holy books. Following a temple and religion does not make anyone a nice human being, it’s your work and thoughts which decides your fate of being nice or not. Be genuine not convenient.
I know a lot of people who goes to temple, they follow their religion rigorously but still are deep into nuisances. How can we justify them as the follower of God? God never said create nuisance.
If you really wanna follow him, follow His sayings try to imbibe those facts in your lives. Be natural and you will see the difference between a agnostic person and an atheist.

 I am not perfect but I try. Do You??

Life as we know it/ Life “as if” we know it

Well the first part of heading belongs to an amazing movie but second half is my deal. My approach for the article is something different. The article is how our life starts what we desire and dream and what really happens in reality. We always wish something to happen in our lives; we think we are imagining the best for us, we think we know all the aspects of life but is it true?? Do we really know everything or do we really wanna know everything…

You already know the answer, whatever happens in life is interrelated to different events which already took place and which are going to take place. Reality is far different from our imagination.
Life starts as soon as we enter the womb of our mother it develops from a seed to flesh to organs to a beautiful baby. Parents start planning our lives the second they know the seed is there. They imagine our names in both the genders. They start discussing our school, friends, sports, habits, commitments and who knows what.

Each touch of our mother on her baby bump gives her new idea. This is how life starts. Do we know this, can we imagine it, and can we feel it?? No, not until we are in same shoes.
And at last we are born and the actual wind blows. Our first smile, first word, first step and first tear everything matters, everything is cherished it also create the base for the mountain we gonna create or the pit we are gonna fall in. Life is unpredictable, it is not like we imagine like you say, “life as we know it”. But really it should be said “life as if we know it”.

When we are born we don’t know how to take the step, we learn. We can’t expect what will happen next, we learn from our deeds. The basic gist of the article is to tell the same thing that we don’t know what will happen next, we learn it. We don’t know about life. We can’t judge it by what we desire or expect. It has to be anonymous, if we learn this simple fact our lives will be bit easy.

It’s a no blame game, there is no phrase “why me”….. its always “well it’s me, shit !! Let’s handle this”. Or it also can be “wow it’s me”, you never know. Life is not only pits, sometimes it’s an evening facing the calm lake as well. Predicting your every move is reel life. Moving with the unpredictable life is the real one. Trust me on this!!!!! I know what I am saying.

Day 2 .... Of the trip

Hi guys sorry I forgot to mention the epic fight for lights in the last day article… well as u might not know but I can stand darkness, it gives me Goosebumps like hell. And our one and only mohit can’t sleep in light so for almost one hour we fought over opening or closing the light resisting our dead slip. But damn,,,,,, I lost and mohit closed the night with all the heavy lids of eyes.

Well the day 2 started with the sunlight peeking through the rough curtains hanging in all corners in the room and vikram hovering on everyone to wake up so that we can leave the place on time. Well I hope you remember our mistake of swiping the NH 121 and NH58, well it was not corrected yet… I know we were bit of tech believers whom Google maps has blindsided.

No worries we asked, we trailed, we bumped but stay on our course to reach the destination we decided for don’t forget the cutting few points here and there but the main thing remain intact. Well my journey had to be more interesting since God’s plans are not finished yet. We asked our way from a police man who was giving us a clean sweep by not checking our documents but here we are asking for more adventures. In the end stopped us and guess what we got an inter-state tax penalty ( congratulations), ten times the original cost, had to be paid at the RTO office which will open at 11 and right now it’s just 10. Not to our worry we found an amazing restaurant who fed us amazingly ( first nice meal on the trip, No offence)!!! Well the name of the place is slipping from my tongue may be I will get it after few more sips.

We paid our asked liability and drove again, and caught the most beautiful glimpse of the mountains and the river beside. But never to overlook the dangerous landslide zones as well. We squeal , we sip, we smoke but all we did was enjoy the moments we had in our hands. All of us are working people who steal the time for what we love. And really write now I am doing what I cherish the most ( words).

Since we lost so much time in missing the right NH, atlast we got our real track and our search for mohit’s only love Gauchar for explore. A little bit of background is needed here I think. Actually at the time of selecting the place to visit and roam, everyone search for the ideal spots and researched about it. Well mohit fell for the G place .. oops I mean the city don’t think anything which I don’t, and since you already know his memory of learning names this is the only name he remembered correctly.

On our way we also got to know about shalini’s cooking egg cooking ability. Never seen a gal cooking her egg the way she wants on a side corner shop. But she did and made exactly she like .. something between a omelet and a half fry. But I can say the guys have appetite of a whale but with a 6 abs look to drool over.

Vikram gave the ultimatum that we will not stop until we reach govindghat, which was a impossible task since we have to explore gauchar.We crossed all the prayag and the beautiful rivers along our sides not to forget the fierce mandakni river. We reached gauchar it was a small place although quite beautiful in its own way, mountains covering it from all sides with the perfect view. And we reached joshimath at 7:15pm which was 15 min late from the allowing time to cross the barrier. Huh.

We fought but realized soon it was for our own good, a new task came into picture find a hotel to keep our selves covered from the temperature which was decreasing by 5 degree after every hour and reached to – 2 degree.

Settling the things was easier but hunting for food made me realize how much I suck in walking on heights and gave me a fair view of tomorrow’s 20+ kms work. I really started panicking addition to which our nearly drunk vikram played the prank which made me feel like strangling him with my bare hands.

There is this leaf which have thorns over it if you see it its normal but when he smashed the leaf on my hand I felt like I don’t have my fingers with me anymore. Seriously he pulled that prank on me and deeksha just to show that we should not touch that leaf by mistake.

There is one more surprise in bed its one of the couple’s anniversary. The cute couple wished each other at 12 midnight with the shower of gifts on each other. Cute the journey is getting more interesting every minute and trust me I enjoyed the every bit. So stay tuned for our horse ride experience and how I taught my horse the counting.

Everything Is Fun : The Trekking Trip to valley of flowers....

Smile never comes with terms and conditions it just appears on your face when your heart feels it. The whole article is all about the smiles I witnessed on the faces of my friends and mine too. The last five days were the amazing days full of smiles and fun.

Two months back one of my friend approached me with an idea of a trekking trip. It was the first time I heard the name of the place, “Valley Of Flowers”. He told me it’s a trekking trip and I said, “I am in”. He sent me few details and links of the place to study. Till the time I boarded the car, I only know that trekking means loads of walk and mountains but later I realized what I got myself in. I accepted the plan without knowing the road ahead of me. And trust me it was one of my best decisions in last 25 years.

Day 1

Well Vikram and Mohit the only two creatures I knew while starting the trip, they also were the main managers of all the fun coming. We booked a dashing red Scorpio car with 6 people to sit in. so now the journey begun on 3 rd September ’2015 at 7:30 am from vikram’s place.
Who says plan always works right, they sometimes backfire but Our plan backfired plan was too awesome to realize. Our scheduled arrival to destination was 4th September but guesses what we there on 6th September and Google maps became our internal joke. We relied on it and it leaded to 250 kms extra in order to make our route shortest.

There are two national highways 121 and 58 which lead to valley of flowers, where 58 is the shorter one. Oops but we opted 121 which is the longest and the lonely highway but with amazing clicks. We turned, we ride, we stopped, we clicked and enjoyed it.

Journey started with 6 people one who drive, one who make everyone laugh, one the silent killer ( horse), and two beautiful ladies apart from me. There were loads of cheers and fights in it, as our precious chauffeur, Mr. Vikram( the organizer) was only allowed to have red bull to keep his eyes open where as we were clinking our beer cans.  Our first long stop was near halduani where our search god mohit hunted for food as all the places was serving rice but he found one place who served rotis with rice.

The entire view was breathtaking, a bliss to eyes, an ecstasy to ears and heart. Water and trees were accompanying us in the whole journey to mark our presence, while we were fighting who will sit in front. Noise was on top and excitement was growing every minute.
After driving 300 kms we realized we choose the longer route and tried to find a place to stay the night as it was getting darker every minute. Oops I forgot to tell you, the whole we were imagining why there is no one else on the road we are pursuing its NH anyway. We ll the question was already answered it was the wrong NH. It was a mistake which created few 100 extra clicks in our book of memories.

After hours of searching and twisting through rocks and turns, we found a place to stay over, Thalisen and mohit was pronouncing it sushmita sen as the last few alphabets rhymed. While reaching for Thalisen it was dark so we thought of asking a guy who was coming from front but after seeing his face we ran like anything, we felt haunted for several hours after that.

We book a single room with six beds and grabbed the only meal we got there at 10 pm in the night, anyhow we stuffed the hungry tummies.  With our growling account manager mr mohit hovering over us to spend less ( kidding).

The night was on and we slept like dead in bed and waiting for the next adventure going to come next day with the bright sunshine and more heights.

Its just day one the others are still going to come …. One day at a time so by tomorrow I m gonna tell you about 4th September with the fun stored in it. And Mohit’s undying love for Gauchar… stay tuned…

Say NO !!!

Sometimes I feel saying NO is the most hard thing. It breaks the most valuable thing we have a           "heart". Whether its for something or love. I Always tried to protect these things but hurt most of the hearts.
 I also love, i do have a heart, but it cant be everyone's. You cant force me to love you. You can make me understand your love and if i feel the same for you... I will love you more than you love yourself.
But try to understand it cant be forced. People say love him who loves you, a lot of people love me n i cant love them all in same way.
Its a concept nobody tries to understand they just say " you are mean". 
I am !!!
If I am thinking about myself then i am mean wow. What a hypocrisy guys have !! they are thinking about their love and i cant think about me.
Three Cheers!

And What if I said yes !! 

From the next day they want a hug .. kisss..

And in a week time they want the expression of love. For them love is only this ... and I ma not In It..
Truly saying .........

Friday Nights at office

Hello Friends,

It’s the first time i am writing anything about my office. Well it’s the first time i have something to write about. Well let me first brief you about this before getting forward on it.
I have switched my job and currently working in a US IT staffing company since one month. The culture followed here is bit inspired by US. Remember only a bit.
Here is the experience which i felt worth sharing.
Fridays are the fun days both start with “F”. It rings the bells of a weekend and party. It tells you to put up your sleeves, fill the car and go have fun.
Normally in our company we used to get pizzas on Fridays to enjoy it together and have fun. But 15 days back something different happened although good but unexpected. We got around 10-15 new recruits in our office. Young people who are about to graduate and we felt the talent in air.
Last to last week on Friday at around 3:30 am just one hour before ending of our shift. Two of the new recruits (twin brothers) started playing guitar and singing and truly speaking i don’t have words to explain the aroma it created.
Got to know that a lot of people in our office have distinctive talents. Their passion for singing was shown on that day. They were free from the world and were singing in their melodious voices. They sang songs touching the strings of everyone’s hearts. We enjoyed the whole concert. I can’t explain the moment in words. The room was so lively that the work pressure was evaporated from the shoulders of the people.
The reason i am writing this is because of the smiles i saw on the faces of the people that day. They were real smiles reaching the eyes. They were completely living that moment without thinking about anything else.
Guys’ life is too short to:
  • ·         Lie
  • ·         Be bound
  • ·         Be Fake
  • ·         Be unhappy
  • ·         Hide

Smile when you want to, cry when you feel like, it is not showing your weakness rather our capability to accept pain.

Try to be open to yourself, so that the face in the mirror knows about himself/ herself.
