Worst fellow travellers with you

How does it feel to travel in solitude, get onto a plane/transport/train and locate some eccentric creatures alongside you grinning repulsively,smiling obnoxiously, talking, whining just to dispose of you. (Smirks)

Snoring like a loud horn

russare1

Now and then a roof fan without a controller is greatly improved than a person who is wheezing like a horn. The sound is so boisterous and feels like there was an alert called for emergency exit.

Pardon me, roaring and roaring, the old man is snoring!!

Nappy time

index

Baby has peed, pooed in his nappy and the only place available to change the baby’s diaper is the place by you. Yikes; vacant seat 🙂
You ought to have carried a crate of tissues and enough perfumes…:( while the more youthful children kicking your seat and pulling the pad until you truly take a gander at them indignantly. Grrrrrrr

Can you pass the newspaper ??

bus-stop-clipart

When you purchase a perusing material and you are charmed in it. Abruptly, you get your neighbor peeping onto. That is the manner by which you pass a distrustful grin at him and after that he asks you the supplement.

News chronicles exactly at Rs.3/. Cant you get one?

Hogging like never before

Whether in a train or in a transport, you discover them eating covetously like he has been starving for a considerable length of time, crunching till the last moment of flight, biting gums persistently, tensely sitting tight for the following chai-wala. Where does the rubbish go?

Reply: Out of the window simply hitting you. It’ s like somebody wakes you by sprinkling water all over as if it showered on a speeding train. Check to ensure your nearby neighbor more likely than not washed his hands.

Though travel is fun, adventurous bus and train rides, straining flights i still have stories to start and finish.

 

Destiny!!

So, this girl is on her journey meeting different people, circumstances… somewhere down the line she reaches a stage where she strikes back as she does not want to be lose herself in this world. She has her identity, her status; she is trying to know herself. She is happy in her little world of dreams; a girl who is running behind butterflies,blowing bubbles,watching a duck , jumping off a tree, throwing stones in a lake, loving a puppy, helping a nanny, eating sour berries , winking at a stranger, playing in puddles, laughing loud, screaming, sitting on a swing, wearing a cute frock, dancing….. Behind all these little things of joy, there is dark side she does not want to enter…….

And she dint hear it ever after

Chirping of birds and laughter

Trailing blaze began to fade

Battling for life she started to wade

Dark whispering of woods

Galloping and unsettled covered by hoods

A voice raised above high and strong

Merrily paddling, singing the torch song

She was glued to torments and bruise

Her obsessed mind sailed a new cruise

Little she knew, little she learnt

Tragedies that she burnt

She swam across her destiny

Away from the mutiny

Finally winning a storm

Raising a brow with a medal in her arm.images

Togetherness

Look at the shadows outside
The bright moon is calling you
The wind is caressing your face
A beautiful story unfolds itself
Someone wants to get close to you
Knowing each and every thought of yours
Your dreams of secret words
Sharing all the space and silence
Getting a step closer each day
Holding hands of togetherness

They are known for never spending a solitary penny notwithstanding to buy a solitary plate of idli(celebrated South Indian dish) amid lunch hours. They continue thinking whether to eat or not to eat. While putting in a request, they placidly state “I am not hungry” or “I will eat later. Spare that additional buck. Well, grasped to share plates. They need to purchase a rundown of things, stroll with you to such a variety of shops, take a stab at everything conceivable, ask substitution essentially, search for various hues like they are going to exhaust their entire compensation at one shot. Their bills shout, wallets discuss being poor (Will you stop) me now thing. They will check, gripe, deal, they will search for each and every detail, even which the retailer more likely than not missed.

You have a craving for punching their face left and right. They cherish talking, yapping constant about anything. What is the one thing they have not attempted yet?? Windbag about the new telephone they purchased, its components, its shading, its shape and all the ideal extras, you will practically by-heart the item depiction like a catalog to any other individual. They will depict each and every ounce they saw at the Disney arrive, (veritably a neighborhood reasonable) how they spent the night at the bar, the atmosphere, the apartment, as though they were the only ones who traversed 7 oceans.

They flaunt their assets however when you truly require some assistance, they require wake up caution calls, they never react, overlook, put on a show to be outstation. “It would be ideal if you leave a voice message”. They need to deal with everybody around like a major Nanny. You should choose when really you require some reason to not ask them. You call them all the more regularly however you hear different reasons. They should leave a recorded message always “Sad I am inaccessible”. Be that as it may, you said you will be there and get the baggage picked from the station. Hello!! Tire puncture.

Importance of Silence

At my desk, when I am up in a sentimental mood to write

A green hilltop, climbing all alone , just for myself

A garden full of roses, chrysanthemum and chameli

A pool of water and Irish tea

A blue sea and rising tides

A lonely beach and finding for sea shells

A bookshelf and a coffee bar

A fountain in a park with white Lilies

An empty street with Bougainvillea

A train station with no one around

A river bank with huge rocks

A window pane and pouring rain

A cozy afternoon watching the ceiling

A terrace on a tall apartment

If only life was so simple…

Blunders, I hate Texting!!

images (1)

Alarm call for a lazy bug, rooster ringtone wakes you up at 7 AM. Ah! Snooze off, off to sleep again. In a matter of few minutes, it is 8 AM. You know, it is such a hard-won task to leave your cozy mattress (snug as a bug in a rug) alone and sign in to the daily chores.

Hurry up, time check. Clock is ticking!!

There are voices coming up from different rooms, like the one from the ads “Rahul paani chala jayega”.

To do list: get fresh, iron your outfit, have breakfast and Run Lola Run to board a bus at 9 AM.

You don’t get time to notice any of your updates on your phone. Sad isn’t it? When you missed reading all the messages, calls from unknown numbers. When someone asks, “What! don’t you read all the messages in the morning?” Still worst isn’t it?. Wait!! I am not sitting with my cell phone every morning after I wake up.

When the smart phones were first introduced, it was a style statement for everyone to carry one and flaunt the model. Never know you might have to take the con-calls on your phone when you are stuck in a traffic jam, and there could be situations like work from traffic 🙂 Thanks for introducing free calling apps. Lamentably, messenger apps are ruining one’s life. Why do people create official groups on messengers and spread information with reference to work. It is easy and free, agreed that local SMS charges apply and there are these apps, which provide features to send free of cost, unlimited texts with attachments using internet plans. Upset over my past action, I accuse myself. Why did I install such an app which is become a basic part of my life. I wish texting was never introduced.

Mobile phone is just an awesome device for me to listen some good music from my playlist or be it on the Radio. Use the camera to what it’s called mobile photography and post it on via photo sharing apps.

Why would you really bother to check  texts you received before leaving home. Only if you read all of them you would know, Inbox: “Today meeting at 8.30 AM”. Who the hell would have read it so early in the morning, when you are running to complete home tasks? At least not me. 😦 Missed glancing once and I reached late; People throw tantrums “Didn’t you read it. Message was sent in the group.”  What message? “I didn’t see”, or was it an escape to not respond to such short notice.

What if your phone battery was dead due to power cut?

What if you turned off the mobile internet or your WiFi was down?

What if there’s no network and people couldn’t reach you?

Possible right? Yes, of course but who cares. You should have seen it, there is no excuse for it, like someone rang the bell in your brains and a silent whisper quoted “Hello, be early you have a meeting”.

Still others are so fretful…. I agree you wish someone through texts, or ask about their well-being. Just a warm hello, “Hi, How are you?” Come on, who’s online, staring at the phone, reading texts and replying instantly, reacting to every other message on the phone?

What if you didn’t read the message because you were busy in a meeting?

What if you are working in a crucial and confidential project and you are not supposed to carry a smart phone?

What if you have to submit your phone at the security, or keep it safe in a locker?

So many reasons right? And still people expect to question you, “Are you so busy? You don’t even reply to my text”.

There are so many more things to do than messaging and fiddling on the phone. This multi-functional device was designed to stay connected. I repeat stay connected and not glued.

Side effects of messaging.

“What’s up?” Reply “Sky”. She/he replied, new thing I found today.

“Sup sup sup”, he was abbreviating to super, super, super, guess his fingers did not move to complete er,er, er but no eh? It meant, What’s up, what’s up. I don’t have anything to say.

“HB”. If you are wishing someone, do it wholeheartedly. I know hb pencils but it read happy birthday. Sulked!!

“Guni”, went for short code “Good Night”.

“Ga”, I can read musical notes in English “sa re ga ma pa”.. I was awestruck, it is “Good Afternoon”.

errrr
err

Annoyed, troubled, disturbed, irked and sorry but, I never got the QWERTY keypad right nor did I manage to get the swipe. Too many errors caused pain to text and look, almost stopped responding to messages. People complained “I don’t understand your replies. I need to learn French to read what you type.” I would prefer listening to your voice on a call, instead of using inaccurate words in a sentence hard to decode, while traveling with less internet connectivity.

It happens, if two contact numbers saved with same name and Err, wrong information to wrong number. Like something cruel, “What did you send me?” oops wrong window. Then which one is the right window?

your finished
your finished

Just a letter typo and life is smashed. A friend received a text from an acquaintance, who also used the apartment WiFi. “Is your wife workibg?” She was supposed to type “Is your WiFi working”? Great reply posted, “LOL m not married and workibg means?” Further, she received 2 missed calls. Awkward and stumbling, forget it. This could be a trick, she sent to verify whether he was single or dating? and then would meet for a coffee, down in dumps.

“Are you comind today to d party? An alphabet error and the reply was comind??? I would have read it so clear. Like I always do. 🙂

Anyways, is it a crime if you don’t reply? Privacy status hidden, you would be thrown out of the group if you are passive contributor and never to be added again. Some relief. 🙂 To clarify ask the admin, do not ask further questions.

Life is getting faster and faster and people are getting busier and busier than sit staring at the device, smile unpretentiously with dimples reading something.

Texting also is impersonal. Emotional sentiments are expressed through typing, without clues such as tone of voice, facial expressions and body language. Its always better to have a face to face conversation in person. As long as you reply, they know it is for you, else few of them realize, it’s a bad way to reach you. Who knows what the person might be thinking, while replying to your text.  A simple reply, just a “k” and this one “okay :)” with a smiley, which would make a hell lot of difference. Again smileys are making a great deal in SMS; without it some may even think it is raw.

That’s why talking is always better than messaging, which leaves a clue later, if you discuss some gossip. I have come across such a person, who used to copy messages on a compact disc for proof, like further reading or something. Criminal minds. Unless you use apps to record calls.

People who know you very well will definitely call you. Huh! Talking too much on phone could cause hearing loss. I might have lost few dB of it. And who is all the time texting you 24/7? Kind of questions arise from your family and peer group. Even in a meeting, that glow on your face in the dim light. teehee.. peeping into the phone …

But sometimes texting a little is life saving and is saving time too. Imagine you ask someone some address on a call and instead of reaching Lavelle road you reach Avenue road. Poor accent!! Hearing aid and accent trainer required… Messaging is so damn useful in sending exact address, or pinning current location, unlike any typing mistakes.

You can never predict anyone by assuming him to be crude, impolite, uncivilized, an outlaw – banned from the mobile zone, having bad phone manners. “Why don’t you reply? Oh, you reply so late. Some conversations sink and labeled as “Not interested” members. Your only free time is while you are traveling or 45 minutes lunch break and you are so hungry, planning to grab your meals ASAP.

That is why I keep saying, I am not glued to my cell phone. I would appreciate, if you are reading this on your desktop instead of a phone. Are you still stuck to your phone?
