One heck of a gal!!

(my sis on the left and me on the right)

It’s a lift

No a looking tower

No it’s a lift

Looking tower


Looking tower!!

And it goes on and on and on. Neither of us win.

Every time we pass that building we always have the same argument. Its an ovelish sort of building with windows on its side. Each time we cycle or drive pass that area we begin bickering on which it is. And we continue bickering until mom or dad gives us a telling off for squabbling.

That’s one of the MANY things my sis and me fight about. And trust me there’s a lot more from where that came from.

My sis and me have always been two sides of the same coin. Take our profiles for example.

Pevinder(my sister):
Dead logical. Only smiles when the joke makes sense in her eyes. Needs her eight hour sleep or she’ll be cranky. Loves learning new things. Love staying at home. A TV addict. Also addicted to games, chocolate and cars. Rarely reads and writes. Always is the top two in her class. Responsible and has a fun personality but shows it to a rare few. Very shy person.

Creative mind. Forever smiling and giggling. Can be really annoying. Survives on two hours of sleep daily but takes a twelve hour nap on Sundays. Forever on the move attending camps, family gatherings or just dancing in her own room. Hates the TV with a passion preferring to watch DVD’s on her comp or going out to the cinema. Reads too much and writes a lot. Plain crazy. Don’t ask about her position in class. Outgoing person.

Yet we are the best of friends. We argue a lot but we make up faster then ever. She’s fun to be around and can be a bubbly person. I love her to bits and I always will. Life is sometimes the best when you share it with your best friends and it gets better when your best friend is your sister. There’s a huge different between friends and buddies. Buddies encourage you too jump of the cliff. Friends stop you from doing that. My sis has been with me through thick and thin. Even when the world left me alone she was there to hold my hand. And I love her for it. I always have and always will.

There’s a funny thing that always happens when we fight. My mom always says. “Can’t you guys just be buds?”

No way

We will always remain as FRIENDS!!

FYI we still haven’t found out whether that oval building is a looking tower or a lift. Somehow I just wanna leave it that way =P

Carpe Diem

“We are food for worms lads”

That’s what the professor tells them in one of the most heart wrenching films I have come too love. Carpe diem. Seize the day. The moment. The second. The movie? Dead poets society.

Ok I'm not going to go into detail about the movie because its something that needs too be watch to be truly appreciated. But what I am going to do is to talk about this one scene that means more to me then anything else.

So the proff takes them into this trophy kind of room and then asks one of the boys to recite the following verse

Gather ye rose buds while ye may
While time is still a flying
and this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying.

Then he goes on to say that the Latin word for the first line is carpe diem. So why does the poet say that?

Because we are food for worms lads.

Basically what the entire speech is about is telling the world that look life isn’t around forever. One day we will all stop breathing. One day we will not exist. So whets the one thing we will leave behind? Our names, Our legacy and the things we did for society.

That is where the problem lays. The way I look at it there are to main categories of people.

1) You have the category that is so self absorbed in their work they forget too enjoy life as it passes. They forget to live for the moment and too appreciate what they all ready have not what they are searching for from their chasing of material things. They are remembered for working hard.
2) The category that is too self absorbed enjoying themselves that they forget to leave something behind. The right legacy. The thing that will help people to remember them except for being a bunch of noisy louts. They are remembered for wasting their time having fun.

You know the song remember me from the movie troy? Where Achilles wants to be remembered for what ever he has done. He goes too troy even though he knows it means his death because he want his name to be remembered.

People want to be remembered because they are afraid of being forgotten. They are afraid of really dying. So they do things that make people remember them. Through generations. Through lives. Through stories.

The problem begins when people want so hard to be remembered that they forget to live their lives to the full. They forget to seize the day, the moment. The fraction in time when the world is at peace without war. When the world is just with itself.

That’s what the professor tries to tell them. He’s telling them that no matter what your still going to be dead. No matter what you do life is going to end. So live it to the max while you can. Appreciate beauty. Appreciate the thing around you. Even monstrosity in its own way is beautiful. Its unique. Its life.

Living life is not about living for others. Its about finding your dreams and living it. Its about living the life you have always wanted to live. Its about being yourself no matter what you do.

Ok here I need to clarify one MAJOR THING. This is NOT a rebellious act. I repeat it is ABSOULUTELY NOT a rebellious act. I am not asking the world to drop everything and then want the world to work on its own. We all have rules to follow and we have too otherwise the world will be in chaos.

What I mean to say is that this is your life. Grab hold of it. Make a difference for yourself. Make something out of yourselves. Live your life in the way that you really want too. Ask yourself is what I’m doing really my choice? Is what I’m doing really the thing I want to do?

This is life. Life is about seizing chances. Seizing the day. Carpe diem. And that’s a choice all of us have to make.

So what are we going to do now? Live to be remembered by the living? Or live for life itself.?

That the choice we all need to make. A choice that will differentiate the true winners and the true losers of life.

Sanity lost for a temporary time duration of 7 minutes

“ Its ok to get an E for geography” goes my mom

OK before the next blogger shouts in utmost surprise and before someone takes a screw driver with an extra pair of screws to screw my head back on properly let me tell you that I was in a perfect state of mind at that moment of time because of the fact that it was the last day of my exams and I was looking forward to finishing of my exam paper.(my mom had also already had her morning dose of caffeine and was wide awake when she told me this)

So here I am trying to eat something before the grand finale of my exams and my mom surprisingly told me that yeah its ok to fail my geo.

“Huh?!?” was my first reaction. My face resembled something to the likes of a fish out of water

And my mom repeated herself.



And again


And again

And the process repeated until the message finally sank in.

“Wait mom you sure brownie didn’t bite you too hard or something?”

Yup goes my mom again.

Weirdeness with my mom is a very very very very very very very very very


So just to double check I asked my sister to stand in the room with her both her ears open.

Mom just rolls her eyes’ cackles and then says
“I’m going too change my mind if you say it again.”

Ok ok so I shut up then.

Yeah I did. Another rare moment.


Some are weird and some painful. Some are happy others are tearful. But each and every moment is worth more then anything. Each and every moment is cherished. All for different reasons. All for different stancses.

This was probably my most loved moment because it was a time when my entire family was sitting down(my dad as well but he was too dumbfounded to speak) and also a time when my mom temporarily lost her sanity. The sheer beauty of it was awesome. These are the memories and the fun I always remember having and the kind of things that I will always keep with me because even if I have nothing in the world I’ll always have the few things that no one can take away. My faith, The lord and my memorable moments.

Those are the true reasons why I always cherish all my moments. Because these moments will never leave me. Not truly anyway.
(by the way mom regained her sanity after the exam and threatened me somewhat less then the death sentence if I didn’t pass. Fourtunately I still got my A. Another thing to always keep with me

Hey so this is the first ever blogpost I'm handing over here and i neither know what I'm going to put here nor wonder how long these postings will keep up. =P Let see how long things last shall we? So whats my first post gonna be? wanna know? really want to know?
ok ok enough of humourless jokes. so what is sometimes? It is just that. Sometimes. Basically refers to the moments when we have no other explanation for. A collective noun for those uncountable momments.
For me though, sometimes refers to the times i missed out on saying 'hey whats up?' or 'how you doing mate?' To me its those missed opportunities from which i felt that i could have said something more or said something less. Those times when i felt silence would speak more then words. Those are my sometimes
Thing is I will never get those 'sometimes' back. Those moments I lost will never return. Which add even more to my fear, the fear of losing someone without telling them how much i truly cared. Saddest thing is that these 'sometimes' will never return.
I have yet too lose a loved one and God forbid should it happen anytime soon. One such example is my grandmum. She's not going to be around for long. Yet something still stops me from going up to her giveng her a hug and just saying how much i love her.
I take comfort in knowing thant in some way or the other i will stop my 'sometimes' from growing. I can never make it shrink. I can stunt its growth. Thats the lucky thing about 'sometimes'. So here goes nothing.
till the next time we meet.
