The Joy of Living

Joy Of Living

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.

― Thich Nhat Hanh

Hello my dear friends. I know I have been missing for a while here but now I am back with my thoughts and ideologies. I want to thank all of you for being a part of this blog. It really means a lot to me when I read comments from the readers regarding how they were motivated from my writing. It gives me immense pleasure and satisfaction. I feel happy and that’s what makes the difference. Your support and constant positive feedback gives me new ideas to write about and express myself more deeply.  Once again I thank you all of you from the bottom of my heart.

Today, I was just sitting idle in my office and was wondering how difficult it’s going to be for me in the next few months because of the hectic office schedule. I had started to feel lonely somewhere within my heart and then suddenly I realized that all this hard work can’t go waste. I simply closed my eyes and sat for a while trying to figure out what was I doing. You know what guys; the only thing I was able to see was the smiling faces of my loved ones all proud of me. So it was then I realized that I was doing this not for me but for those people. Happiness on their faces is something priceless to me. I live not for myself but for them. It’s like my entire body is connected to all of them. Whatever they feel is what I feel in return. When they are happy I am happy and when they are upset I am upset too.  That’s the JOY OF LIVING.  Living for ourselves can give us success but satisfaction can be achieved only when we live for others.  People who behave mean in this world might reach great heights but the higher they go the faster they lose their loved ones behind. I am proud to say that I live for my family. Whatever I do, whatever step I take in my life is a reflection of what my family expects from me. I am devoted to them.  This feeling is something that encourages me to do things beyond my limits. I feel so boosted up when I breathe in the air which has nothing else but happiness all around. The sound of laughter during a family gathering is probably the best sound one can hear.

So that’s what I was thinking the entire day today and then thought of writing it down to share with you all. I hope my thoughts have made a little impact on your thinking process. Showing the light to those who are lost in the dark is the aim of my writing. Remember your loved ones when you are in trouble, you will find the solution on your own.

God Bless

Colors of my life

My parents

They have given me everything I demanded. They never question me back on anything. For them, I am still a 5 yr old kid who still needs to be cuddled. Last month my Dad forcefully combed my hair because he was feeling nostalgic about the time when he used to comb my hair when I was a kid. For them I never grew up. I feel so cozy and so happy with them. My mom still weeps out badly at the airport when she comes to see me off.  So to pay a tribute to them I gifted them a certificate which entitles them to be the world’s greatest parents.

me n dad


I can’t name this person due to personal reasons but the importance of this person in my life cannot me expressed in words. Without whom my life couldn’t have been so wonderful. If my parents gave me the strengths, this person gave me the direction. If my parents inspired me, this person cheered me up when I was low.  God sent this person just for me and I am sure about it. All I ask God not to take his gift back from me ever in my life.

Mr. Mufaddal

Well, he is my fellow friend, my dearest and closest buddy. He has a very important place in my life.  I trust him. I can assure myself that even if no one’s with me he would be standing right next to me no matter what. He himself might be extremely crazy but what matters is that he considers me as his life.  I contribute towards his happiness more than anyone does and this thing makes me so much attached with him.

 I cannot sustain if anyone of these is missing from my life. They are the integrals of me now. I am a crazy harry potter fan so let me explain it that way. These three are my horcruxes. I have my parents, my life partner and my closest friend…what more anyone needs to call himself perfect?  I have no existence without them. The best memories of my life are associated with them and them only. I love them with all my heart.

Made in Heaven

To love is to recieve a glimpse of heaven.

-By Karen Sunde


Hello friends,

First of all thank you so much for supporting me and admiring my work. You are the source of inspiration for me. I wish you all are in good health and happiness always welcomes you at your doorstep. It’s been 10 days since I have finished my engineering examinations and right now I am back home spending precious time with my loved ones. From the past ten days I am experiencing everlasting joy and happiness inside me. I thought it’s worth sharing my feelings with you because what I am feeling right now it’s no ordinary feeling. It’s the feeling of love, something which is most needed in today’s world and whose value is getting diminished each passing day.

Being with my family and my very close friends, I have realized one thing that I might not care about my life but I am one of the reasons for the broad smile glowing on their faces. This gives me pure pleasure and I feel so delighted. It gives me motivation to always keep them happy and never let them go. Sometimes I wonder what would have been my life without them. A rainbow without colors? Or a garden without flowers? Well, I don’t really know but what I know is that we all need someone in our life and for me it’s the bunch of these people who make me realize that we all share a single heart beating inside all of us. My parents begin my homecoming countdown almost a month before my scheduled date of arrival.  My friends desperately wait for me to arrive so that we all can party together. They keep calling me up and plan the dates accordingly. It’s their unconditional love that makes me what I am today. My mom doesn’t like to cook much but with me being at home she cooks every continental dish possible for me (yummy…I am fond of food). Being my parent’s only child I am always treated like a king. They all together encircle me with ecstasy. One feeling which is said to be very special is to love someone truly and another feeling which is equally special is being loved by someone deeply. I am lucky to feel both at the same time. Each and every person around me makes me realize their value in my life and how much I am worth for them. I always had this feeling of living for my loved ones rather than for myself and today I feel I have attained this goal. This positive energy has vibrated every string in me and I hear the music of satisfaction and extraordinary delectation. I see every face smiling around me. My attachment with them is inseparable. Some people believe that love weakens your ability. I feel exactly the opposite. My biggest strength is the love in get from these people. They say marriages are made in heaven, I say my life was made in heaven and god sent all the heavenly creatures for my protection.

At the end I would like to make a kind request to all of you reading this post. Love is not a physical thing which you can see with your eyes or you can keep in your showcase. It can only be felt with deep emotions. Like an atom bounds the nucleus, love bounds you with happiness. Don’t let it ever die within you and this is one thing which gets multiplied the times you share so share as much as possible as this world needs it badly.

Thank you

Love and regards

Recipe for Life


Play music of your choice from the panel to add more taste



1 clean and kind heart, bunch of close friends, 2 tablespoon of politeness, 1 teaspoon of anger, 2 tablespoons of determination, trust(as per taste), 2 tablespoons of patience, a few drops of love essence and 1 broad smiling face for icing.


Add politeness and determination to your heart and mix it thoroughly. To this add some sweetness. Continue mixing till the sweetness is soaked completely. This is perhaps the most essential ingredient as it will allow mixing up of all the other ingredients.

Now add 1 teaspoon of anger as it will act as a catalyst to boost up the process. Too much of it will result in a bitter taste. After mixing, now add 2 tablespoons of patience. This will allow everything to settle down in your heart. This works as a neutralizer between anger and determination and prevents any exothermic reaction in your recipe. To this add trust as per taste. Too much of it can be very harmful for your heart and too less would mean no taste at all.

Now add a few drops of love essence and a bunch of close friends. They will provide the real taste and colors to your life. Stir consistently and allow everything to get mixed up. If everything goes well you must smell happiness and delightfulness.


Add a broad smiling face with red blushing cheeks.

Enjoy life and serve others

Complexity of Life [DECODED]

For those who find difficult to handle life and consider suicide as their last option to overcome it.

  Love is the most appropriate synonym for life.

      Smile is the most valuable yet a free  gift of life.

      Happiness is the key to live life.

      Patience is the only way to understand life.

     Stress and tension are the algorithms that jumble your life.

      Kind heartedness is a must to explore new dimensions of life.

      Positive attitude is the sole requirement to tackle problems in life.

      Faith in God will protect you from evil in life.

    Anger will add confusions to your life. (Effects are seen only after anger is released)

    Friendship will deepen the roots of happiness in your life.

    Loneliness is the biggest enemy of life.

    Your family is the backbone of your life.

   Dreams add curiosity to explore life.

 Overconfidence leads to defeat in the battle of life.

Love is, and will always remain the most powerful weapon. Don’t shut the door of your heart and lock yourself behind it. Come out and be brave to face LIFE.
