Thankful for an award that gave me.. Happiness! ♥

Today, my favorite blogger Me gave me the Liebster Blog award!
I was so overjoyed to get my second award. After a bad day, it felt like sunshine peeping through rain clouds. :)

Well.. I need to answer a few questions that Me has posed me with.

So here it goes!

1. Define yourself in one word.

2. If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be?

I love growing older. I love the mark of wisdom and those facial features that age to mark experience. But if I really had to choose, it would be 37. Just like how it sounds! :D

3.  If you knew the world was ending in 2012, what would you do differently?
I hope to do something that would be a legacy for future generations to come. The world will never end; it will be a new beginning. 

4. If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?

The creation and evolution of the world. The death of Steve Jobs. My shaadi? ;)

5. If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?


6. If you got a magic wand and could change only one thing, what would that be?
I would change all sorrow in the world into happiness.

7. If you could ask your future self one question what would it be?
Why did you fail to put in your best effort in whatever you did? 

8. What is your most prized possession? Why?

Materialistically, it is the journals that I have written from my tenth grade. It captures all emotions and feelings involved in growing up. But otherwise, I would say my family, my best friends and my faith are my most prized possessions. They mean the world to me.

9.  What is the one thing you feel is most misunderstood?
Love. The reason is that it is seen as a tit for tat game, where every act is matched by another. It has become very close to bar-tending and it is not often that you see relationships with no expectations, but just pure, unselfish love.

10.  One thing you would like to tell Me?
Keep writing! And a gesture too.. Hugs! :)

Thanks a ton for the award! :)

Whose Fault Is It?

A thought that struck me while writing today's exam..

What the world looks at is your marks. Those numbers on your final certificate matter more than your knowledge and how well you studied for the exam. Is it because of our emphasizing on marks that causes people to indulge in malpractice? Is the temptation of a few more numbers so high that we are willing to give up on right and wrong? The outcome of this is a larger number on your certificate and zilch knowledge regarding the topic in your head.

So what is it really worth?
And whose fault is it here; the institute's for only emphasizing on marks or the students' for a lack of self discipline and interest in the subject?

Random Thoughts.. Speculations, Ideas and More.

You know those days where you wake up on the right side of the bed, have a hearty breakfast and start the day with optimism, but when the days ends and you look back only to realize that the only happy moments were what happened in the morning?
You decide to put it back and continue with your life. You value peace so much and all you want is a day filled with joy. Yet, that parasite never lets go of you and continues to blind you in the unexpected times. Face the problem and it will vanish. But what if it is betrayal, a broken trust, longing for more love, which truly remains unaccomplished after facing it?
What if you wake up every morning wanting to detach your body and soul, heart and mind? What if everyday all you want is to smile without pretense, without worries; love without limits and experience unconditional love, but all you get is a feeling of loneliness?
Do you smile through it all or do you sort it out and smile? Do you love despite the pain? Do you wish for better times or go ahead and create them?
The need to be loved doesn't cease with receiving love; it ceases by giving love. But what if love goes unrecognized? What if it isn't needed by the other? What if all you want is love and that is all you don't receive? Concern, wishes, happiness and conversations expressed are different from love.
What if you know the kind of love you crave for, but can't define it? What if you feel what you receive is inadequate? What if it arouses feelings of insecurity? Will you go ahead and try to explain your way of deciphering love or accept what you get as genuine love?
How many relationships do you really value in your life? How many strangers have become closer to you than your family? How many friends have walked in and out of your path? Why do we still hope? Why do we believe in love? In happiness? In sorrow? In perspectives? In feel good emotions? And in life itself?
Faith is one thing that keeps my life going. The words that I say, using it to converse with my God, form my prayer. My God is my best friend. I used to remember Him only in times of trouble, but this episode has instilled a strong sense of faith and the omnipresence of God in me. I know He is always watching out for me, smiling at my speculations and widening my horizons. I know He loves me more than any mortal being can and that nothing will ever go wrong with Him on my side. I trust in Him, I fight with Him, I talk to Him, I know that there is nothing in this world that can be so much mine as He is.
Isn't love a kind of faith? Isn't it expressed differently by everyone? Isn't it meant to enrich our lives, then why do we pollute love with impurities? Love with faith, for faith itself only starts by expressing love to Him.
