Like a pendulum...

Just like a pendulum in the air,
Its me, here and there,
Scattered like sunshine everywhere,
But not reaching quite there,
I have cold hands and cold hair....
If it was you, what would you do...?
Oh, what would you do..?
On the downhill with people climbing up,
You say hello and wish them luck,
But for that rush to and die and live,
What would you not give..?
Oh, what would you not give..?
Like a pendulum,
I live on,
In the moments here and gone,
But to be in that world unknown,
What wouldnt I be,
Oh, what wouldnt I be...?
Touch your hand and I let go,
'Coz I have to flow in my flow,
A prisoner of my destiny,
I ask myself....Am I lonely....?
Like a pendulum,
Like a pendulum,
I am, I was and will be,
Swinging in eternity..........
Like a pendulum...
Like a pendulum...

Blue ~ driving away the blues...

Was feeling a little blue since yesterday....

But today morning the sight of the clean blue sky, white clouds, and a bird spreading its wings and floating in the blue sky somehow filled me with peace...
Here are a few glimpses of the blue which drove away my blues...hope it helps you too to flow freely in your flight...

Being purple...

I'm standing in my balcony,
Sipping my morning tea.
The morning breeze has blown and brought
Into my lawn,
Some purple leaves ~
From the flowers of my neighbour's tree...

And I'm thinking of all the people
In my life today,
And those who have gone by...
All the people so far away from me
Those who I long to see,

And those who maybe I'd never see...

The purple flowers are ruffling the grass of my lawn
Looking happy..
Why did they choose to leave their tree,
And come to this land unknown..?
Arent they in some ways like me..?

I feel them adding colour into my life
And in my heart I hear a voice~
I too will splash my colours on this land and sky,
Life is about exploring all the sunshine and all the rain,
And the song on the radio plays~

"I'm leaving on jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again..."
...and I just look at the purple leaves, and smile.

It rained...

It rained ...

Like there was no summer.....ever.

The droplets fell

On the lonely desert rose,

And it smiled...and sang and danced,

To the tune of the first three drops ~

Touching its petals and making it alive.
.Can rain be love...?

~ Prayer for a new beginning ~

New years come and new years go,
Pieces of time all in a row.
As we live our life,
Each second and minute,
We know we’re privileged to be in it...

At the beginning of this year,
Here's wishing you~
Love, peace and joy,
Faith over fear,
Strength in times of trouble,
A hand to hold when lonely,
A warm hug when the soul feels cold,
A smile for every tear...

Here's wishing you wisdom and learning,
Tolerance and understanding,
Days filled with colours of a rainbow
And moments filled with small joys of life...

Wishing all my blogger friends a wonderful new year,
filled with moments of togetherness with the loved ones...

Here's wishing that this year sees us becoming a better person
and this world a more better place to live in.

"Risk toh Spiderman ko bhi lena padta hai...

......... main toh phir bhi Salesman hoon” (Even Spiderman has to take risk, I am just a Salesman)..!!

Thats a line from the movie "Rocket Singh, salesman of the year", which I just saw ~ A simple but engaging and thoughtprovoking movie....

"Rocket Singh, salesman of the year" ~ The story of a fresh from the college graduate (Harpreet Singh) who joins the demanding, corrupt and target-to-be-achieved-at-any-cost world of sales. He's not able to mould himself into the corrupt ways of work. Hence, inspite of being talented, he's labelled a failure, a zero by his bosses and colleagues. He is insulted by his colleagues and made fun of. They keep shooting paper rockets at him to humiliate him. The story goes on to show how he fights the odds, makes his team and they go on to make their own new company, which shakes the empire of the company where he was working and was written off. He names his new company as "Rocket Sales Corporation" and becomes the biggest-hard-to-beat competitor of his older company.

The story was simple ~ the victory of good over bad, like they show in every movie. There was nothing out of the world in it. The location and picturization of the movie was also very down to earth. But the movie touched me. There was something in the way the movie, story and the whole concept was made, which was very basic and very close to the real world. I loved the character of Harpreet Singh, who is not shown as a superhero in the movie, but is shown as a common man who is full of heart and character. His never-say-die spirit, simplicity and honesty was appealing. But the story is not just about him. It has a universal appreal. Through his story, the concepts and ways of business these days have been explored. The movie showed that how a business can stand and also run on the wheels of hardwork, honesty, service and committment. That to earn money, it is not necessary to be shrewd, cunning or to decieve people. "Business is not about money, its about people." ~ is the ideology that Harpreet Singh believes in. And with this ideology he goes on to earn a lot of money, reputation and a huge clientele. I think its very true. The values of honesty, generosity and honour of word that make up the strength of a character have been rightfully glorified in the movie.

And Ranbir Kapoor looks very cute in the role of a sardar ~ very smooth and natural. And not to forget the colourful 'pagdhis' (turbans) that he adorns. They make his look simply amazing!

The movie rocked for me...did it for you..?

"Earth wind and rain and fire,
Wealth power love desire,
One goal to live for before we die,
One taste of glory,
One mouthful of sky..."
