One day, a young boy asked his mom, “Why are you crying?”

“Because I’m a woman” she told him.

“I don’t understand,” he said.

His Mom just hugged him and said, “And you never will, but that’s okay.”


From the very beginning, girl’s family objected strongly on herdating this guy, saying that it has got to do with family background, & that the girl will have to suffer for the rest of her life if shewere to be with him.


Due to family’s pressure, the couple quarreled very often. Thoughthe girl loved the guy deeply, she always asked him: “How deep is yourlove for me?” As the guy is not good with his words, this often causedthe girl to be very upset. With that & the family’s pressure, the girloften vents her anger on him. As for him, he only endured it in silence.


After a couple of years, the guy finally graduated & decided tofurther his studies overseas. Before leaving, he proposed to the girl:


There are moments in life

When you miss someone so much that

You just want to pick them from your dreams

And hug them for real!


When the door of happiness closes, another opens;

But often times we look so long at the closed door

that we don’t see the one which has been opened for us.


10th grade

As I sat there in English class, I stared at the girl next to me. She was my so called ‘best friend’. I stared at her long, silky hair, and wished she was mine. But she didn’t notice me like that, and I knew it. After class, she walked up to me and asked me for the notes she had missed the day before. I handed them to her. She said ‘thanks’ and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don’t want to be just friends, I love her but I’m just too shy, and I don’t know why.

maybe coz I din wanna loose such a good friend like her

11th grade
The phone rang. On the other end, it was her. She was in tears, mumbling on and on about how her love had broke her heart. She asked me to come over because she didn’t want to be alone, so I did. As I sat next to her on the sofa, I stared at her soft eyes, wishing she was mine. After 2 hours, one Drew Barrymore movie, and three bags of chips, she decided to go to sleep. She looked at me, said ‘thanks’ and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don’t want to be just
friends, I love her but I’m just too shy, and I don’t know why.

maybe coz I din wanna loose such a good friend like her


Feel this…………

For those lucky to still be blessed with your Mom, this is beautiful. For those of us who aren’t, this is even more beautiful. For those who are moms, you’ll love this…

The young mother set her foot on the path of life. “Is this the long way?” she asked. And the guide said: “Yes and the way is hard. And you will be old before you reach the end of it. But the end will be better than the beginning.”


But the young mother was happy, and she would not believe that anything could be better than these years. So she played with her children, and gathered flowers for them along the way, and bathed them in the clear streams; and the sun shone on them and the young Mother cried, “Nothing will ever be lovelier than this.”


A long time ago, before the world was created and humans set foot on it, God had put all the human “qualities” in a separate room. Since all the qualities were bored they decided to play hide & seek.

“Madness” was one of the qualities and he shouted: “I want to count, I want to count!” And since nobody was crazy enough to want to seek “Madness”, all the other qualities agreed.  So “Madness” leaned against a tree and started to  count: “One, two, three…”

As “Madness” counted, the qualities went hiding.

“Treason” hid in a pile of garbage..

“Lie” said that it would hide under a stone, but hid  at the bottom of the lake.

And Madness continued to count “… seventy nine, eighty, eighty one…”

By this time, all the qualities were already hidden-except “Love “.  For stupid as “Love ” is, he could not decide where to hide. And! this should not surprise us, because we all know how difficult it is to hide “Love”.

“Madness”: “…ninety five, ninety six, ninety seven…”

Just when “Madness” got to one hundred………”Love” jumped into a rose bush where he hide.

And Madness turned around and shouted: “I’m coming, I’m coming!”

As Madness turned around, “Laziness” was the first to be found, because “Laziness” was too lazy to hide. “Madness” searched madly and found “Lie” at the bottom of the lake. One by one, Madness found them all – except Love.
Madness was getting desperate, unable to find Love.

Envious of Love, “Envy” whispered to “Madness “: “You only need to find Love, and Love is hiding in the rose bush.”

“Madness” Jumped on the rose bush and he heard loud cry. The thorns in the bush had pierced “Loves” eyes.

Hearing the commotion God came into the room and saw what had happened. He got very angry and cursed “Madness” and said since “Love” has become blind because of u… ..u shall always be with him”

And so it came about that from that day on, Love is blind and is always accompanied by Madness.

“Each day was precious each moment my own. I lived a life in heaven.”

Prayers are not heard. A plea goes unanswered. The pain still remains. Eyes still numb, heart still cold. When will all this heal itself?

I look up into the sky; he is as lonely as I am. My heart is crying I want him to take this pain away. I feel the void I want him to fill in the space. A tiny star peaks out of nowhere and disappears as if to tease me. She kept coming back. I looked at her and with out realizing I burst out loud,” well what u doing all by yourself up there? Aren’t u afraid? Lonely?” It was no fairytale where the star would suddenly change into an angel with wings and a wand in her hand, but what the hell it was worth the try.. I kept smiling cause I had to admit just talking to her felt nice. So I started again,” well I am awfully lonely. I have people who call themselves my friend; I’ve people who call themselves my parents. But then why am I unable to call myself a Friend or a Daughter? Why Do I feel like I don’t belong to them, like they don’t need me? I feel like my presence or absence would make no difference like I am insignificant to them.

Each day I look up into the sky where I was made to believe exist a miracle worker, someone who makes all your wishes come true. I asked him to send me My Angel. Someone who will love me for who I am. Someone who will be with me each waking moment, make me feel real. In whose eyes I’ll see my whole life unfold. Who will Wisk me away from all my trouble.

I was fooled day after day, as my dream (My Angel) never took shape. I stayed up most nights afraid, My Angel might knock on the wrong door (Nobody said that the miracle worker couldn’t make mistakes) I didn’t wanna take the chance. But No one knocked on my door. I still waited looking out of the window all by myself.

It had been four years. My eyes still involuntarily looked up into the sky occasionally (more so out of habit than will now), but I had given up. The star still looked down at me mockingly. But I was tired of playing games. I had made up my mind. The miracle worker was just not interested in me. Oh ya I believed in his existence alright, esply when the dumb third year student got more than me or when a not so good looking girl was seeing this hunk of a guy or when everyone else’s wishes were coming true. So the only logical thing to do was blame your stars and accept ur non existence (come on now even the super power himself was ignoring me. I can take a hint, least when it’s staring at my face). But I silently still wished things to be different.

I was a graduate. 22 yrs old. Most women my age would have been in a real relationship by now, but not me. But who cares, I was all set to die alone, or get married to the next jerk my Dad thought to be the perfect match for me. So when I entered the huge grounds of MIT I was expecting no miracles. I was hoping like always people in that classroom too would not feel my presence. Suddenly a guy walked up to me and whispered a ‘hi” in a husky, quite sexy I might add, voice. I did’nt bother to look around, I knew it wasn’t for me. Remember the miracle worker was on a constant break as far as I was concerned. This time he tapped my shoulder. I looked around. So what maybe he just wanted to borrow the scissor I was holding. He smiled the most angelic smile I had ever seen. So radiant. I could’nt take my eyes off him. My mind repeatedly told me “Susan, he is not real, only your illusion”. I closed my eyes, opened it again, he was still standing there. Now with an amused look. I quickly cleared my throat, whipped up an attitude worse than Queen Elizabeth and said, “hi”. We started talking. I was laughing and giggling (God, so unlike myself). For a brief moment I actually thought that my prayers were answered. But only for a moment (you cant blame me, 4 yrs is a long time to wait.) Maybe my prayers reached the devils nd this was their idea of playing a prank on me (okay, now I am just being silly).

So I stopped thinking and lived in the moment. He was so handsome, funny, right out of a mills and boons novel. But what was he doing with me. Hours added up to days, days to weeks, and weeks to month and then there was the moment I waited for all my life……

I was sitting in the front seat of the car (I was going to say a chariot ride in the moonlit nite, but its too far fetched, so I will stick to reality), ready to leave. It was 11 pm, time for me to rush home. I had worse than Cinderella’s deadline. I opened the door. I said, “Good night, thank you for a lovely evening”, he just went to open his mouth for one of his sleazy comments, Smiling I said to him,” don’t say a thing to ruin this perfect day”. He gave one of Godly smiles and said, “Well I was planning on telling you something,”. I sat back in the car, shut the door and insisted that I wouldn’t leave until he did’nt tell me what was on his mind. He was blushing, at least I thought that. He looked straight into my eyes and said, “you’ve got beautiful eyes”. I couldn’t believe what I heard. Like an idiot, I got of the car thanked him and walked off. Silly me!!!

I reached home and our series of messaging began. Each message made me reveal just how much I loved him and wanted to be with him. I waited for his reply eagerly. At around 11.52 pm and several msgs later, he wrote to me.’ I just gotta say this to you. At first I thought I was only infatuated with you, but today I realized just how much you mean to me’ (okay agreed I ave given you the edited version).

So 24th August 2005, Cinderella (i.e. ME) meets her prince charming (i.e. Anush) at midnight. The miracle worker had worked his charm again. I guess there must have been a problem in transmission. Heaven aint as near as we think it to be. So if you ve made a wish, hold on to it. Someday when you least expect it, the miracle worker will work. Remember He(GOD) keep watching us, we cannot keep a watch on Him. When I gave up keeping an eye on Him or checking up on Him, He heard me. I am still living happily ever after with My Angel.

Nice Article about Love- by Swami Vivekananda

I once had a friend who grew to be very close to me. Once when we were sitting at the edge of a swimming pool, she filled the palm of her hand with some water and held it before me, and said this:
“You see this water carefully contained on my hand? It symbolizes Love.”

This was how I saw it: As long as you keep your hand caringly open and allow it to remain there, it will always be there. However, if you attempt to close your fingers round it and try to posses it, it will spill through the first cracks it finds.

This is the greatest mistake that people do when they meet love…they try to posses it, they demand, they expect… and just like the water spilling out of your hand, love will retrieve from you .

For love is meant to be free, you cannot change its nature. If there are people you love, allow them to be free beings.

Give and don’t expect.
Advise, but don’t order.
Ask, but never demand.

It might sound simple, but it is a lesson that may take a lifetime to truly practice. It is the secret to true love. To truly practice it, you must sincerely feel no expectations from those who you love, and yet an unconditional caring.”

Passing thought…

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take; but by the moments that take our breath away…..

Life is beautiful!!! Live it!!!
