Daily Prompt # 24:Reading is Sexy!!!!


Daily Prompt: New Sensation.

New hairstyle, New clothing, New boots… Exploring different fashion trends… i hope all these perfectly describe the adolescence when we are more anxious to try out different stuffs and experiment a lot with our looks.

We try to make each step a “Fashion Statement” and we are very much restless if we don’t try out different stuffs with respect to Fashion.

During my adolescent years, I was very much keen on experimenting with my looks but due to some or the other reasons i always found “Books” taking a top priority than clothes/accessories.

Books have always seduced me more than anything else and have always given me more pleasure than any other thing in life.

gg Books have always helped me to widen my knowledge on different aspects of life and has always helped me to overcome the problem of not having a good friend in my life.

The very moment i used to enter into the library i used to forget the outside world completely and start digging myself deep into the world of fictional characters. It used to make me see all the other cribbing issues in my life very small.

There once came a moment in my life when i met a huge crisis in my life and i was totally upset with my everything i encountered with. It was an awful phase of my life. Away from friends, family, and coping up all the shit alone.

For days i used to lock myself up in the room and think … think… think.

How to come out of this hell?

There i came across a quote in newspaper.

“Reading is therapeutic”

I found that interesting and started taking this reading habit so seriously that over few years i finished reading atleast 100 books. And i won’t call myself as a big time reader but yeah i have really found Book Reading to be a fashion statement.

People can take away your wealth from you. Time can take your beauty away from you. People may betray you. You may lose your loved ones in this journey of life. Fashion can change over decades. Only thing that remains constant is the content in the books. They were apt yesterday… and are valid even till today. The best example for that is The BhagavadGita.

Bhagavad-gita

The Gita is considered to be the holy book for Hindus. The concepts and the verses mentioned in Gita are valid even till today. And the best example is that even till this date millions and millions of people are still reading it and finding answers for all their current day problems.

Books never become outdated like other fashion statements. And Reading is very sexy.

I once read in a book written By Edward De Bono on “How to have a beautiful mind?”

In the introduction of the book, the author mentions the relevance of having a beautiful mind over beautiful body. He says what is the point in being dressed in modern clothes and being fashionable when you have the most boring minds on this Earth. On the other hand, no matter how you dress… if you have a beautiful mind which has lots of interesting stories/parables/anecdotes/jokes/amazing things to share I am damn sure you always win more friends than others.

Reading books has helped me a lot to improve my own mistakes in life and has helped me guide myself when i was undergoing many ups and downs in my life. Books have helped me network with some of the greatest and amazing people that I have ever seen in my life. I can live without money but not without books. They have become an inevitable element in my lifestyle. No matter whether i read or not but i always have 2 books in my back pack. The very presence of books gives me the courage to achieve the impossible in my life.

I am proud to have made Book Reading as a fashion statement in my life. I have earned true friends thru this habit of mine.

What about your fashion statement? What is that one thing without which you cannot live?

Please do share your views on the same.

Lots of love,

Daily Prompt # 23:Happy Valentine’s Day!


Daily Prompt: It’s Friday, I’m in Love.

Remember your first crush? Think about that very first object of your affection. Oh, the sweaty palms. The swoony feeling in your stomach. Tell us the story of your first crush. What was it about this person that made your heart pound? Was the love requited? Change the names to protect the guilty or innocent if you must! No judgement here. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Photographers, artists, poets: show us SMITTEN.

What is so special about this thing called as “First Love”?

Well…the quote below speaks all about it.

tumblr_mdeorb9P451qj183lo1_500

Yes, that’s right the feeling of being in love for the first time is something which never fades from your memory.

The very person with whom almost every girl falls in love is her dad.

dad5-1

The very concept of love starts with “Family”. The feeling of loving each other and caring for each other starts here. Its from here we see and set our ideal soul mates’ qualities, expectations etc. So basically Family plays a very important role in choosing our first love.

ll Every girl expects that her first love should always be a person who can make her forget the rest of her whole life and show her an altogether new world. She fills her eyes with dreams unlimited and starts jumping off the ground.

But sometimes as we all know expectations never come true or even if they come true they may not last for longer time and we eventually break up with our first love and move on with our life with loads of pain. College life as many people say is the golden period of ones life. It can give you loads of happy memories and also tonnes of painful experiences too.

One such experience which is commonly found in everyone’s life is “First Love Failure”. What happens when we fail to possess our very own first love in our life?

Can be terribly painful… isn’t it?

Oh Yes… it is..

First love … an experience unparalleled to anything else…it makes you laugh… makes you cry… but in the end stays in your heart forever.

Here i go … sharing a few videos which best describe the sweetness of First Love.

So, be it sad, or be it a happy one the first love is always something very special to our heart… It just touches our soul like anything and leaves its imprints forever.

Love you all,

Where No Google Buses Go


Pueblo Lands

Toxic smoke, visible from Market Street in San Francisco, is blown east, away from the city, and toward the communities of Richmond and San Pablo after the Chevron refinery exploded in 2012.

For every word written about the gentrification and displacement that is tearing San Francisco apart, there should be ten words written about the the poverty, environmental racism, and financial predation battering the smaller industrial cities of Contra Costa and Alameda counties. In suburban hinterlands north and east of Silicon Valley and San Francisco are the bankrupted municipalities of the Sacramento Delta and Carquinez Straight. We’re talking Stockton and Vallejo. Even closer are other cities devastated by the economic crisis, places like San Pablo, or Richmond from where you can see the rising skyline of San Francisco across the Bay, growing with towers of luxury apartments as it is.
