Suddenly your childhood re-visits
You could see your father giving you cycling lessons,
You fall, you fall again, you finally ride alone
You see your sister joking, your brother playing
You see paper boats
You see your childhood crush
You go to boarding school,
You make friends, you run, you fight
Suddenly your roommates become your lifelong buddies.
You go to college, you make girlfriend
You guys have great time together,
You see your friends, your parents
You see your first paycheck; you see your concert tickets,
You see your blog,
You see her smiling…
Suddenly there’s a flash,
Bright lights, numbness and finally you are gone.
Those few minutes, those few seconds
just becomes a memory, a shadow,
a story never told.

Living world is a bowl of untapped fiction; you need some fantasy to create a beautiful canvas. Writers are born dreamers; they live in their own world where the moonlight never abandons their galaxy, where fireflies are seen all over the living room. Writers are fond of art, music and romance. They fall in love, gets betrayed, they dumps the un-imaginative, they keep moving ahead.
When you see a beautiful girl, you stare at her, and if she gives you that half-hearted smirk, you feel your job is almost done. You then move ahead and create a world where you see that girl walking towards you, she don’t look at you but hold your hands and make them touch her face. You slowly lift her moon face, and kiss her in her cheeks; you slowly bring your lips upon her lips and slowly roll your tongue above them.
This is where, the real fun begins, a writer’s imagination runs wild, he takes her to that fairytalish world where she finds everything she once desired, a beautiful house, some friendly servants, a handsome looking fine young man. A writer creates a romantic atmosphere with his fingers. The moon faced girl opens a box, lots fireflies come out of the box and when they disappear, she sees a shining mirror, which tells her how beautiful she is. She then keeps the mirror inside her bag and walk around the glossy garden. A writer’s kingdom is full of flying words, the words transforms into real objects like wine, flowers, love and lust just to satiate the moon faced girl.
Writers stay in trance, they look lost, they talk less. They have a unique lifestyle, they can mesmerise with their sweet charm, they won’t make you feel the dust of real life instead you will feel the fragrance of lilies and see a magical world with their eyes. Writers are not normal human beings, they are creators, they are the ones who will take humanity forward and one day when the whole world will transform into mere digits, writers will use their fantasy to create the magic of written words again.
Books will be re-created, movies will be made, songs will become more humane, music will again conquer, robots will feel, mechanical parts will become emotional; you will fall in love with that writer who will re-create utopia. They will make you fly without wings, they will give you the power to become invisible, they will slowly turn everything into reality. Their fantasies will eventually become an actuality. The world needs writers because if there’s no writers, there will be no story, no history, no life.

Writing is the most difficult thing for a writer because he or she becomes so conscious while scribbling things of their hearts. A writer is someone who looks different, who acts in a very different way, who keep repeating mistakes, who forgets hell lot of things. A writer has a completely different lifestyle, he/she is misunderstood, who keep less friends, who dreams of living in an island to complete his/her last masterpiece, who criticises, who appreciates, who belongs to a absolute different world.
Everyone wants to be powerful in life, some people joins army, some take up medical sciences, some end up becoming engineers, some become business tycoons, some become actors, some end up doing nothing. Writers want to become everything, they dream big, they try to change things around, they have a great taste for music and sometimes their taste becomes extremely obnoxious. Writers are mad people, loners, haters and sometimes great perverts. They may look very ordinary but you can’t escape their charm, they have something inherent. Their genes echo words of future, they are so full aesthetics. Style is the second name of an urban writer. They all have a signature design of work. Some keep it subtle while some write things, which are so very impractical and absurd. Some writer write things to confuse, while some write for satiating their hungry souls, some write for money, some write to change the world.
Writers are crazy bunch of people, they are so mad about things they love. They are romantic villains, they are Casanovas, they love womanising when they don’t work, they are loyal lovers, they are betrayed souls. Nothing is so constant expect one thing – their knack for chronicling their own lives. They are so open hearted that they could give everything to person they love. They get addicted to things quickly. Almost all successful people on earth are writers. They become writers after becoming successful or they become successful after writing successfully. Everyone at the top of the mountain are great scribblers.
Inspiration plays a great deal in a writer’s life. It can come from a woman, it can come from someone whom the writer admires, it can come from scenic locations, it can come from hell lot of money. When inspiration blends with imagination, great things are created from the hands of a writer. Music is the oxygen of a writer. If you hate music, you are no writer and if you don’t observe, you are just pretending to be a writer. A writer is a sensitive person but they gradually learn try to take things as they come their way. Nobody is a perfect writer, even Shakespeare made grammatical errors, even Oscar made typos, writers can be imperfect but the great thing about them is they try to make everything perfect at the end of the day.
To be continued…

Based on my observation in real life and social networks, I have seen three things very common in all women. I know it’s difficult to understand a woman, they constantly have mood swings, their taste changes, they constantly look for something fresh and desirable. Girls in urban cities are different from girls from semi urban places, while woman from rural places have totally different thought process. India is a developing country and women in this country are developing with the country. Girls in urban places wants everything they want, they are independent and domineering, they look for intelligent, good looking people and of course rich people around. Urban girls see stuff, feel things and want to achieve what other are achieving. They feel jealous when they see other girls with same intellect and looks do well in life. Due to the famous Facebook, the jealously culture is prevailing in India. Everyone is flaunting a diva look clicked by high resolution cameras. You hardly see an ugly girl on the web. The better your camera, the better you look.
Urban girls are devoid of real love, they are so perfect that they hardly find a good match for them and finally end up dating a douchebag, who finally leave her for a better option. Urban girls are beautiful from outside but they have so much pain hidden inside, they are so successful in their jobs but they fail to have a great relationship. They read books, magazines still they find no peace of mind. They never get their prince charming. Only the lucky ones who know the art of balancing their love and job life get their share. Girls in semi-urban cities are lucky, they stay with their family, they have enough time to enjoy unlike girls in metros. They are real lucky ones with fewer aspirations, they want to look like the Bollywood stars, wants their boyfriend to look like someone like Shahrukh Khan. They are filmy. They want a big fat wedding, a big house, a big car and a great family. Getting married is their sole ambition in life and they are actually happier than the ultra urban girls. The urban girls don’t have so much time to mingle and end up doing casual flings. They have a disturbed life. Girls from rural places have no goal, no dressing sense but they are so full of love and affection. They marry early and have kids. Their life is all about family. Every woman is unique, some look beautiful from outside, some look intelligent, some look hot and some look desirable.
Three Things Women Want…
- Women want abundance of love, more than man. They want someone to hold their hand in public places, they want somebody to listen when they are depressed, they want someone to walk along in the rain. They want a constant companion and when they don’t get love, they become depressed. They become ruthless; they want a partner who satisfies them from top to bottom. Someone who understand them, someone who treats them like princesses.
- Women want enough money so that they can live a life without stress. They want their partner to earn so much that they don’t have to slog. Money is something, which plays a great role in keeping a relationship stable however it’s not the real thing for sure.
- Love making plays a great role in a woman’s life. A good night or an afternoon full of love can keep a woman fresh for weeks and even months. They want pleasure from their partner and when they are satisfied, they can just do anything for you. There’s nothing like making love in a rainy day, in a open terrace or under the shower. Well, understanding a woman is the hardest thing in the world however few men are lucky to have the desired girl in their life who actually wants nothing. Those girls just want happiness, they can adjust in any circumstances, they will stand by you in your bad days, they will take your pain, and they will just surrender themselves in your arms. Amid the hectic city life, there are people who never find true love; they just keep stumbling against the right and wrong ones…

Blogging is one of the trendiest things to do in the era of digital revolution. Bloggers are mad people, insane bunch of geeks, suave and extremely gorgeous people around. Earlier blogging was just a hobby for many however times changed and the people who wrote clichés became millionaires. Some blogs died in oblivion while others succeeded. People started liking their blogs, people started talking about the things the blogger wrote. They became experts and they got perks they never expected.
almost everyone stays online 24*7 while Indians are slowly catching up. I could
see people carrying smart phones all around me. What they mostly do? They play
games, listen to music and reads digital content. The future is here and we
can’t deny the existence of bloggers. They are ones who write things from their
hearts. If they go through a bad experience, they write. If they see a
beautiful girl while travelling, they write. When they feel bored, they write.
When they feel pain, they write. America
They have an audience, friends to support and acknowledge them and suddenly their blogs get so popular that they are just acquired by the mainstream media. There’s hell lot of money hidden inside your words. You just have to write genuine things instead of following the trend. There are no golden rules to success.
You can’t make money overnight. If you blog to earn money, you are most probably at the wrong place. Blogging gives you freedom to flaunt your experiences with the world. It gives you power to declare your feelings after watching a movie and if your words are real, you become a Maven, an extremely attractive person. People will follow your hairstyle, people will wear what you wear, people will slowly talk about you. You will make enemies; you will make friends for life. Blogging can be an addiction too.
Now the question is – Why bloggers are considered insanely attractive in the digital age? Well, you simply can’t live without Internet. You need information, you need poetry, you need fiction, you need motivating people around, you need things that can change your life. You can’t survive without the written words.
If you are thinking about something very beautiful to happen in your life, just blog about it, if you need your poetry to be read by the most intelligent crowd around, just put it in your blog, if you are a Tarrot card reader, just help people online. Blogging is everything, if you are a blogger, you somehow acquire all the capabilities of an online marketer. You learn so many things during the process. You actually become invincible.
Blogging is freedom, blogging is the best outlet to vent out your pent up emotions, it’s one of the best thing to do if you have very little or too much happening in your life. Just don’t let those important moments in your life go away. Capture them in the form of words and read them after 10 years. I bet you can’t stop smiling at those kiddish stuffs.
Bloggers are insanely attractive because they actually feel things, they live a perfect life, they are mad, they crib, they cry still they survive no matter how life treats them. They are the children of
they are the future of our generation. Darwin

Well, The Hindu today published a shocking article that changes the whole concept of marriage at large. Now, you don’t have to follow the rituals or go to court for a legal marriage. You just have to have sex with your partner to get married. This sounds extremely absurd but the truth is you are actually married if you have pre-marital sex.
In the dot com age, no one actually wants to go through all those religious ceremonies. It’s actually a great decision taken by Madras High Court.
What are the pros and cons of this declaration?
Indiais a conservative country compared to the West but people here are human beings too. They crave for sex and most of the relationships usually meet this final point. You can’t deny the fact that pre-marital sex exist in India. It’s a very common thing everywhere but people still find it hard to express because they think it’s an evil.
- Unlike yesteryears, the new age population marry late. They
want to first get settled down hence pre-marital sex becomes a reality between
couples. Earlier boys and girls used to marry at the age of 18 – 25 but now
it’s extended to 30-35. Pre-marital sex is very much there in colleges too but
Indiafeel shy to embrace this fact.
- Madras High Court must have felt the need to make this decision at the right hour. If you are enjoying sex with your partner and have a pure intention to marry, why not make it legal. With this decision, there will less case of cheating. Most people don’t want to make their marriage a public affair, for them it’s a blessing in disguise.
- However there will be people who are involved in more than one relationship for them it will be difficult to handle the compensation. The decision looks more like an idea for future but the fact is it’s a law now. You are married if you had sex with your partner and you can’t leave him or her without the interference of the court. Good news for the lovers, bad news for people having an one sided affair.
So, what’s your take on it? Are you confused or will you take this decision in the right spirit and declare your marriage with your girlfriend/boyfriend right away? Will this decision disturb parents? There are many questions that will arise in future? I think if you are struggling to convince your parents or your lover’s parents, then this might work like a magic wand for your relationship.
