World Tour | Daily Prompt : Trains, Planes and Automobiles

You’re going on a cross-country trip. Airplane, train, bus, or car? (Or something else entirely — bike? Hot air balloon?)

We were on world tour. Yes, world tour……one of the biggest desire.

And do you know how did we enjoy? Enjoying each and every country was part of the game but we enjoyed our travelling too. Yes, we followed different options to travel. Wanna see how did we travel across world?

First of all, we experienced the height. Its always great to be up in the sky. Mind blowing experience.

Image

Secondly, we took train and enjoyed that fastest speed while being on earth. Awesome !!!

Image Traveled via that most common but most demanded option – car. As usual, great experience.

Image

Accelerated our bikes and enjoyed those black flat connections called Road. Always loved it.

Image

Enjoyed being in the air again but this time via different medium – hot air ballon. Ouch, scary it was.

Image

Saw that beautiful blue ocean from our royal Ship……haah, I wanna go again.

Image

Reaching to the island via a cable car was something, superb !!!

Image

Nothing else than water around. First time experienced submarine. Exciting it was.

Image

From childhood I have been enjoying horse riding and so did I while traveling. Lovely experience.

Image

How can I forget about walking in woods for miles and miles? A kind of meditation for me.

Image

HOOOOOH!!!!!

 I shouted and came out of my bed. OOPS!!! I was dreaming my biggest desire. Mooney experience it was 🙂

What if site stats page was not available ……

Yesterday, I received an e-mail from my newly blogger friend.  Here are the contents (with his permission, of course)

Initially, when I started blogging on wordpress, I did not know about site stats. I was used to post and was waiting for e-mail in my inbox informing about how many likes / comments, my blog received (initially they were not more than 1, and thanks to my husband for that 1 J).

I am not sure, how did I came to know about site stats and I would say life has been changed. This page has an ability to make me happy and sad. Sometimes I feel like my happiness is totally dependent on this page. I am hitting this page at every 10 mins, to check how many views my blog has received…..Haaaah. Tiring it is but as I said that’s the only source of happiness for me.

Sometimes, I found for ideas where I can change the display of this page, i.e. I want to see taller towers on that graph. Unfortunately it does not get modified manually J. I keep commenting on other’s posts so that I can see the traffic on my blog and I think most of them are doing so. But honestly, its not working, as I expected.

Do you suggest any solution to improve my mental health? How can I deal with this stat mania?

The first reaction from me was – how can you be so maniac and dependent? But then I realized that this is real life and anything can happen. Even for some of my post (mind well, some only), I too excitedly checked for likes and comments. I thought for an hour but I could not find out proper solution.

As of now, I have asked him to think that Site Stats page does not exist. Lets see how it goes…..

Your thoughts or suggestions on this??? 

Why are we so much concerned when it comes to social acceptation? What difference does it make to your writing style?

Motherhood

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child. First for the child and then for herself.
-Sophia Loren, Women and Beauty

Love accepts, does not expect

“Oh Shweta !!! why don’t you go on your own? Why don’t you join interior designer course in any local institute? I want my wife to be impressive and center of attraction” Nirav said in anger.

“But I am your wife and why do you want me to show others? I do not feel joining anything or work for atleast two years. I want to enjoy marriage life” Shweta said calmly.

To this, Nirav got more angry. This was usual and almost routine for both of them. Shweta always tried to convince Nirav that she is enjoying at home but Nirav wanted her wife to be like other girls, as he was working with in his office. Its been six months only, they got married. Nirav did not have any choice but to follow his parents’ selection – Shweta, because he did not find anything wrong in her after meeting her.  Shweta was well educated, moderately beautiful and charming.  Shweta conveyed indirectly in the first meeting itself about her interest in being at home or working from home. But Nirav thought that he will be able to convince her to work, when they both will be alone in US.

She will feel bored and so she will work – he thought silently.

But, nothing like that happened with Shweta. She was happy while being at home for 8-9 hours and while decorating new home and preparing delicious dishes for Nirav. She was able to roam around alone in this unknown country, confidently. She received couple of opportunities for work from Nirav’s friends but she denied. And to this, Nirav was upset. He wanted to show the world that his wife was active. She was not sitting at home because he thought that being at home means you are not doing anything and so you are not worth of anything.  Initially, Shweta kept telling him that she will take up some work after sometime. But the way Nirav was pushing her to be active, she got stubborn about being at home. Although she never preferred fighting, the way Nirav was doing, she never said yes too, to take up any work. And within 6 months of togetherness, they felt like it was merely impossible for both of them to be under one roof.

Today, football world cup’s final match was there and so Nirav took half leave from work and reached home early to enjoy the match.  Totally unaware about this, Shweta got excited when she saw Nirav at home so early. She started talking about her plan to go out as she had not gone out since last couple of days. And as she started speaking, Nirav lost his control. Dialogue fighting started again and as usual Shweta tried to be calm but Nirav was in no mood to cool down. He started speaking anything about her character, about her inactiveness, about her parents, about her growth and so on…..

This was unbearable to Shweta. Tears rolled out from her eyes. She took car keys and left the home.  To this even, Nirav did not react at all and started enjoying football match. After half an hour or so, he received a call from Shweta’s cell. He smiled thinking “call for forgiveness, haan”. But there was some strange voice on call, asking him to reach to Michigan Avenue as his wife had met with an accident. Nirav ran out like anything. On the way, he received another call to reach to hospital and he followed. When he reached to hospital, doctors informed him that Shweta had met with a critical accident and as of now she was in coma. They were not sure, when she will be able to get back to normal life.

Nirav felt darkness in front of him. He felt like falling down. He balanced himself somehow. For the first time in his life, he started crying like anything. He regretted. If he would have not said those words to her, she would have never gone out and this accident would have never occur. At heart, he loved Shweta very much. He was happy the way she was looking after him, the house and herself too. For a small thing, he kept her pushing and today he was seeing the result. Tears were of no use and nothing he could do anymore.

So friends, life is like that. You never know when it will end. Don’t try to control your parents, your partner, your kids or your co-workers. You might right in some or the other way but they too live their own life. We, human being, always wants our loved ones to behave the way we expect. And that is how we lose them. That’s the reality of life. For any relationship, freedom and respect is required at some level. Love is not about expecting, its about accepting the person, as he/she is. Realize the truth on time or you might regret like Nirav. If you are in love with someone, the most important thing is to enjoy togetherness rather than molding each other as we expect them to be. Love does not work that way.

I can remember that famous quote from Leo Tolstoy –

When you love someone, you love the whole person, just as he or she is, and not as you would like them to be.

Letter for delivery

Daily Prompt : Ha Ha Ha
Tell us a joke! Knock-knock joke, long story with a unexpected punchline, great zinger — all jokes are welcome!

AnOptimistic

Dear Sneha,

I have decided to move on. After so many efforts to make you deliver on time, I feel myself defeated. Yes, I accept my failure and so want to convey that I have found better option to live life more smoothly.

I met Neera, just last Friday and while our first talk she promised me to deliver regularly, twice in a day. After putting in so much efforts for you and while seeing myself as failure, I was immediately tempted to accept the offer. After all, its a question of life. Neera looks genuine and I trust she is going to keep her promise. Although she is old, she is very active and she has long list of clients too.

So this is just to let you know that, I will be expecting delivery from Neera now onwards and our relationship of last two years will end over…
