My reflection…

Sorry guies if I disappoint you.But I am here to jot down about a simple principle which I follow— the KISS principle—-“Keep It Simple and Straight” principle ๐Ÿ™‚ I have learnt this principle from my brother and this principle totally rocks…

Let me start by narrating an incident..It was my birthday the next day and my brother was busy as he was engaged in arranging and attending his best friend’s wedding and I was here in the campus.I called him that afternoon and told him openly that I want to see him at 12:00 that night and want to celebrate my birthday at 12:00 with the person whom I love the most..It was impossible for him to drive almost around 20 or even more kilometers just to come here to wish me happy birthday,especially because he hasn’t slept from the past 5 days.He said he would try his level best but cannot promise.I was happy that I atleast told him what was I EXPECTING(the root cause of all the problems ๐Ÿ™‚ ) out of him.If I wouldnt have told him that night what I wanted,I would have felt very bad….

I wonder at the way I have evolved in the recent past.I never used to tell what I expect out of people.I would just wait for them to live upto my expectations.And if that did not happen,I used to feel bad.Now,I think,atleast make that person aware of your expectations before you get hurt..And for all those who think they are not goodย  atย  tellingย  their most loved ones their true feelings,all I can say is to be ready to face the consequences and I think they dont have any right to blame others for not living upto their expectations..Ofcourse there would have been a completely different charm if my brother would have come to meet me without me asking him to come..but the final purpose is met and that is what is important to me ๐Ÿ™‚

Things which are not in our hands,cant be changed.But things which are totally in our hands like our relationships with people,shoudn’t be made a mess,not atleast from your side right?? Life is too short to complicate things and brood over the things and mistakes which we have committed.Learn from your mistakes and move on..

My favourite line THERE ARE TOO MANY THINGS AROUND US AND VERY LITTLE TIME..BEFORE YOU REALISE THAT THERE IS HARDLY ANYTHING BOTHERING YOU,IT WOUD BE TOO LATE…SIMPLIFY THINGS!!! This is one line which I love using it and I earnestly try putting everyword mentioned into action..I used this line before around eight of my closest buddies including my dad in one day when everybody was unhappy about some of their relationships!!Everytime I feel Iam getting whiffed by the things around me,I get these lines in my mind and things are back into my hands..

My best friend Charan always tells one line–Life is not meant to be brooding about the past.Live this day.Enjoy to the maximun this day..What is going to happen tomorrow,well… we would think about it tomorrow..

Offlate I have realised that things and life is very simple.Its our actions,our complicated analyses that make it complicated..But why do we always try to complicate??Cant you say to the person whom you like the most what you expect
out of that person??Do we really have to make things so tough around us??No right…

I have seen a parent who had ego-clashes with her daughter and the consequence was that they stopped communicating with each other..Then oneday,that parent came to know that her daugher has met with an accident and is dead..God!! The regret which the parent had was something I cannot put in words..The only thing that she had in her mind..If only I get another chance,I would love to hug her and tell her how much I love her…This incident has hit me hard..I wondered..Why complicate things getting your ego between and now repenting all through your life that you shouldn’t have done it !! Why wait for a second chance when you were given a first???

I love these lines of the song RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW from the movie BLUFF MASTER.. The lines are KAL AGAR NA MIL PAAYE,REH NA JAYE BAAT BAAKI. Lead every day as it is your last day..And take it from me,you would never ever dare to mess up any of your most important relations.

If you love a person,tell that person how much you love him/her everyday.If you feel a person is important to you,tell him everyday how much he/she is to you..If you are angry with a person,for heaven’s sake tell that person what has annoyed you ..Dont keep the other person guessing 101 things which might have changed your attitude towards him/her.And dont delay clearing off any misconceptions you have. Be the first person to help your friend when (s)he is in trouble. Mind you,Iam talking about your MOST important relationships.You obviously cant be candid with everybody around
you.What if there is no tomorrow…You shouldnt have any regret right??
Following the KISS principle is not that easy..Its not that tough either..So folks KISS your life.. ๐Ÿ™‚

PS1: Phew!! Philosophy and me ๐Ÿ™‚ By the way, my bro did turn up that night at 12:00 and nothing else would make my birthday more special than this!!
PS2: Missing my bro terribly ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I wish I could fly and reach him whenever I want to ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
PS3: Listening to the song Bin Tere from GURU from the past 5 days for more than 200
times..Awesome song!! Would love to dedicate few lines to my bro ๐Ÿ˜‰
tere binaa chaand kaa sonaa khotaa re
peeli peeli dhool undaawe jhootaa re
tere binaa sonaa peetal
tere sang keekar peepal

Luv u bro !!



  1. hey good one yaar !!!
    seems like u took some of it from my philosophy
    but i disagree with some of the points or i simply dont follow some of it
    or whatever it doesnt really matter coz we all have something in our mind
    which we follow … i mean certain ethics and principles and that may differ from person to person
    and they change too … k k k its too much for now
    keep blogging !!!

  3. liked ur post !!!
    except one thing .. be the first one to help ur frnd when that person needs u …
    no matter how close he is … no matter how imp the relationship is ..
    never expect something in return … doing so, u arent being truthful to the relationship ..
    en also u never know how big a part of ur life that person can become someday … u might repent then thinking that .. i shud have helped that day ..
    do as much as u can to change the world around u …

    so wherez my choc ??? :p

    Yesterday was history
    Tomorrow is a Mystery
    Today is present
    Thats why its called the ” PRESENT “.

  5. Nice post and since I am allowed to interpret I think you have a great depth of knowledge about relations because it always keeps coming up in your posts.I agree with the point that one needs to live for the moment but I also firmly beleive in planning – not extensive but get yourslef prepared for certain things.Its always good to be confident and that comes with surity which comes with a little bit of foresight!

  17. Very nice, touchy but remember life’s unfair.

    Altruism like this are good on paper , blogs but not practical. The song like to hear when i think of such things is Phil Collins “Another Day in Paradise”. So true its just another day for you and me paradise.

    How nice to be free & frank with each other. People telling what they feel in their heart & not mind. Its always I before everything. I want this, I like that, I don’t care , I love you , I care a damn about your feelings. The I is the factor.

    We all like to leave a footprint in the sands of time.

    Look around us there are things which would make our hearts weep but yet we continue our Pursuit towards Happiness without any compassion.

    Look at you parents, friends, relatives people who we do not give time. Just because we take them for granted. Like the parent in your blog yet we continue with the same indifference.

    Now its make me wonder why i am writing this, Do i even know you ???? May just to says that KISS is not all that simple or May be if “I” dig deep down just to say thank you for you blog has pulled the right strings.

    May be life is not how many degree you have got but how much better your are and how much better you can be.

    Try not to become a man of success but a man of value – Albert Einstein

    Thank you for this KISS
