And the award goes to...

Today is when my blog turns 1 
*claps claps claps*

I know my blog archive shows I started writing from January 
but I had already made this blog before that 
but I just didn't have any writing material
or maybe I was just a very lazy kinda person.
I am still now.
But that's just not the same as before. 

I remember one not-so-fine January day
when I felt as if I need an escape
someplace where I could dump the feelings 
and emotional overtures I was going through without hurting anyone
or letting anyone know at all.

That was a big thing. Very huge. 
And I was just never the same again.
And that's when Dirty Little Secrets
Mind starts speaking, as was known previously
came to my rescue.
And since then it has always been there.
Waiting for me to approach it whenever I wanted to write
or when I wanted to let out everything I was feeling
or just when I was merely bored.

I haven't shared many personal feelings here
and I don't even think I have it in me.
I find more fascinated by characters more happening and interesting
than me.
I like dreams.
I like fiction.
I like poetries too.
But not having the ability to rhyme that well is a different matter
altogether. :P

I've met many people too.
This journey has been overwhelming.
Felling more close to people I read rather than people I am around most of the time
is a bit weird to wrap your head around
but it gives you the belief that the world is, 
a very small place
even in its diversity.

There are a few people who 
have totally changed my perspective
about life.
Or who have made me laugh.
Or others who have made me feel close to them.
Closer, even, then my best friends.

I can't do much for them but I should say that
I love you and your tiny world that I now feel a part of.
And an award in this situation is just passé.

So here goes,

1] Shreya from Such a Cow

2] Jeweliot/Dipti from Crowded Solitude

3] Ujjwal Raaj from Sour Canvas

4] Kanika from Sensitive Chaos

5] Bollywoodstylediaries from the blog of the same name

*beeeeeeg smile*

One moment please.

That relief you feel when you see their eyes stunned and their faces pained - even if for a second - that momentary relief! That is what makes us say hurting things, to be mean. That's what makes us want to scream and swear and make them cry. That relief that makes you feel that you don't have to bear it alone. It's eerily peaceful!

That one short moment makes it less devastating. That you're not the only one with problems. You're not the only one fucked up. You are not the only depressed soul. You can  see the ghost of the laughter that still hasn't left their mouth before your outburst and it gives you hope, maybe even a little perspective.
Suddenly, the world is a much bigger place and you're a barely-existent dot on that globe. You see the bigger picture. You see that there are much bigger problems. Problems that you would never, ever want to encounter. You see that the person standing in front of you - the person that you've just yelled at - it sp…

Yes, I know you know it.

Life is a bitch. My only advice to you is run. Run before she catches up with you and bites you in your bum. 
If you’ve read the above lines and agreed (sadly or grudgingly or whatever) you’ve been bitten already, HARD and it wouldn’t hurt to yell some well chosen curses to the wind either. Do it now. Let the pain out. Let your folks think you’re out of your mind. Let someone get offended and yell some profanities back at you. Let the birds fly away from you in shock. Let your boss fire you for going nuts. No… no, don’t. I take that back. Go yell in a bathroom or something if you’re in your office or yell at someone who works under you. Show them that you’re the boss. Be Hari Sadu from the advertisement for if you want to and as liberating as that may make you feel, make sure the Hari Sadu of your life doesn’t get to see your performance. *winks* After all he’s the one paying who is paying you for everything you own down to your underwear, right?
You see the irony here? You c…

Lessons - learnt the hard way.

If you don't make an effort to be remembered. You're forgotten.People leave. Heart shatters. Just a little lesser every time.Loneliness is way underrated.If you're confused about being with someone, then save them the heart aches - Don't be with them.Life is overrated and pointless. You're living not because you feel alive. You're living because there's still time for death.It wasn't love. It was a matter of priority.Don't hate so much. You're going to regret it too damn much when you see the person you hated with a burning passion reflected in that pitiless mirror.Love changes to hope, flickers and gives away by the way of regret. Hate - it intensifies.Ego is just a selfish way used to stay away from confrontation. It bows away only when its too late for anything else.
And this last one I learnt after observing this elderly lady on the train back from Rajasthan.

Love is having that one person in your life you want to say your first "Good Mor…
