Butterflies in the stomach...

Have you ever heard a friend or may be a colleague saying... "I have butterflies in my stomach..."

and you wonder.. what the hell is s/he talking about.... ????? how can somebody have butterflies in their stomach.... hummm....

welcome to the world of IDIOMS....

Ask me even I am feeling the same today.. & what makes me say this.. some of you might find it funny & some of you might agree with the feeling.. I gave an interview today over the phone... all went well... but then another round was finalised on the call itself... and the HR on the other end said "if you don't have any prior engagements tomorrow, why don't you come for the next round tomorrow..", well I was way to surprised 'cause everything was happening so fast that I could not think of a reason to say "NOT TOMORROW" and agreed on the date and time fixed... but now the situation I am going through is the same as one feeling nervous.. or anxiety..

Now this is the perfect situation when I can say "I have butterflies in my stomach"..

Why would a person feel nervous..???? lets see...
  • Lack of Confidence
  • Lack of Preparation
  • Poor Communication Skills
  • Poor Self Image
  • Lack of Focus and Planning

Now the question arises does any of these apply to me... hummm... here comes the answer... "NO"

In case any of these situations sound familiar? What can you do to put yourself in a better frame of mind? lets see....

  • Have Belief in Your Future Success
  • Know Your Business Plan Inside Out
  • Put Yourself in the Manager's Shoes

Now when we are talking about "Butterflies in the Stomach" lets learn a little more about it...

{"Butterflies in the stomach is a medical condition characterized by the physical sensation of a "fluttery" or "tickling" (hence butterflies) feeling in the stomach. Some believe that this is caused by the release of epinephrine, or adrenaline, when one is nervous, pulling blood away from the stomach and sending it to the muscles. This in turn causes the stomach to temporarily shut down, possibly the reason for loss of appetite when one is "love sick". Butterflies in the stomach is most often experienced prior to important events, when stress is induced, but can be experienced in situations of impending danger." Courtsey - Wikipedia}

Pehli Nazar... - Atif Aslam

Heard this song "Pehli Nazar - Atif AAslam" recently from the movie "RACE".... Amazing song gr8 lyrics.. posting it here.. 'cause just couldn't resist it.. :)

Pehli nazar mein, Kaise jaado kar diya
Tera ban baita hai, Mera jiya

Jaane kya hoga, Kya hoga kya pata
Is pal ko milke, Aa jee le zara
Mein hoon yahan, Tu hai yahan

Meri bahon mein aa
Aa bhi ja

[O jaan-e-jaan, Dono jahan
Meri bahon mein aa, Bhool Ja]2

Baby I love u 4 so more
Baby I love u, O I love u
I love u, I love u so more

Baby I love u

[Har dua mein shamil tera pyaar hai
Bin tere lamha bhi dushwar hai
Dhadkano ko tujhse hi darkarr hai
Tujhse hai rahtein
Tujhse hai chahtein ] 2

Tu jo mili ek din mujhe
Mein kahin ho gaya lapata

[O jaan-e-jaan, Dono jahan
Meri bahon mein aa, Bhool Ja]2

[Kar diya Deewana, Dard-e-Khas ne
Chain cheena, Isqh ke ehsaas ne
Bekhayali di hai, Teri pyaas ne
Chaya suroor hai, Kuch to zaroor hai ]2

Yeh dooriyan, Jeene na de
Hal mera tujhe na pata

[O jaan-e-jaan, Dono jahan
Meri bahon mein aa, Bhool Ja]2

[Baby I love u] 4 so more
Baby I love u, uuh I love u
I love u. baby I love u
I love uuuuu….

Change your life...!!!

"Change your life in 30 days &... blah blah blah...."

Sounds familiar... yeah to me too....

Some people believe it and some people don't.. but there are few who try to prove it... yeah sounds insane.. well not to me anymore.. :)

Last 6 years of my life, I have seen lots of ups and downs in my career and my life and then one day I finally decided to give up.. :( , don't know what it was, how did it happen and what made me decide it, but something was instigating me for long to give up, it was more or less like I was going through a nervous breakdown, as if something else started to take control of my life and I lost it all… huh.. bad phase I guess, or may be living alone away from family for a job that no more gives you job satisfaction, lousy colleagues & sick management… and someone who just can’t mind his own business and keeps poking his nose in your job.

You know what this made me decide, this made me decide that I need a break or a vacation or some kind of a change. After giving it a thought and discussing issues at hand with few close and not sooo close friends here is a list that was formed..

  • Go Goa…. Yippee

  • Go back to your home town… this was something that I was in agreement with but only 10%.

  • Find another job…. Hummm sounds good, but I guess we are talking about a break.. right..!!!

  • Join some course… SAP/CCNA/CCNP…..etc..

  • Go for a makeover… hummm.. but I guess I don’t have patience for this..

  • Pamper yourself.. go to Kerala Backwaters… yaar are these guys my friends or some travel agent..

  • Get a hair cut… I get it done almost every 2 months.. what’s new about it…

  • Shed those extra pounds….. hummm that’s definitely of interest.. now u r talking my friend...

  • Be more patient… what the hell is that supposed to mean.. I have myself become a PATIENT (noun) trying to be PATIENT (adjective) all the time..

  • Go for spiritual trip… have you lost your mind, I need a break doesn’t mean I need to break my head… I will visit temple, church, mosque, anything but why a trip.. I m yet to reach the stage of “Self realization” (oh god that’s Maslow’s hierarchy of needs)….
All that discussion was sure making me nervous it made me feel like I am standing at the “Crossroad of my life”.. it was a scary feeling.. as if I don’t have control of my life anymore and just the thought of it was giving me shiver and Goosebumps, I was confused and so I decided to talk to my best friend and speak out my heart, for I know she is one person in this world who will criticize me, be by my side for my decision, without looking for a benefit of her own out of it..
All this definitely made me realize that you should not take advice or rather ask for advice from all close and not soo close friends, rather ask for suggestions from people who are your friend + critics, doesn’t mean from someone who keep judging you all the time.. like may be your relatives or your next door neighbor…

Ok accepted I haven’t been taking any of these suggestions listed in the list seriously till date, but I guess its never too late, to start all over again..

I made my choice out of this list.. well those who know me would guess it.. but those who don’t, off course m not going to stop you from forming an opinion… but till the time I tell u keep guessing.. ;)

I waited and I think I just waited too long for somebody to come and make me see what I have been ignoring.. but life teaches everyone some people learn it soon and some learn it the hard way & I never like doing things the easy way… lolz..

It’s your birthday, Mom.
So I will raise a cheer.
For without you, wondrous person,
I would not be here.

Yes, I owe it all to you, Mom.
From the time that I was small,
You encouraged me in everything,
And tried not to let me fall.

Throughout my life your caring,
Brightened each and every minute.
You loved me and enriched my life,
And I’m so glad to have you in it!

"Tere bin jeena nahin...."

Something reminded me today that there are so many things that I have either overlooked or may be I was tooo busy to take care.. so many things that you once liked all of a sudden you realize that you no more even think about them.. and then one day some one suddenly give you a back what you have forgotten..

today after may be over 1.5 year I saw a number on my phone and it looked familiar, without guessing I said 'hello...' & the voice that I heard from the other end all of a sudden takes me back to past, what a pleasant surprise it was.. to talk to someone u thought u have lost long back someone u thought don't have time 'cause they are busy making a career and other family ties.. and this makes me realize that I still have friends who live miles apart but they still think of me..

The amazing part is that they still remember what u like and ur favorite song and what were ur last words, the last time u spoke to them...

.....this is for u my dear friend... :) 'cause u still remember that 10 years ago I told you this is my favorite song..

Ready to Fall....

I cant feel it
I cant explain
Whenever your eyes meet mine
My heart spins in circles
And I feel so spaced in time
And now that were standing face to face
Something tells me it's gunna be okay

And I'm ready to fall in love tonight
Ready to hold my heart open wide
Cant promise forever but baby ill try
'cause I'm ready to fall
In love tonight

I know youve been watching
Choosing your moment

But I've been dreaming of that day
No one before you has gotten to me this way
And now that were standing face to face
Theres something I need to say

Nothing is certain
This I know
Wherever were heading
Im ready to go

Cant promise forever but baby ill try
'cause I'm ready to fall in love tonight

In love tonight
In love tonight

Tumse hi...

Sometimes its just too difficult to let few things get off your head and this is definately one of those.. ufff.... don't understand that why i just can't let this song get out of my head..
something about this song makes you feel happy.. may be the music or the words... it's like a smile on your face, on a day when you are feeling blue or may be it makes you feel like dancing in the rain or smile at something completely unpredictable..
oops.. I think i exaggerated it beyond the limit...
guess its time that I write it down.... so here you go.. the lyrics of this beautiful song.. with which I have been way toooo obsessed... :D

Na hai yeh pana,Na Khona hi hai
Tera Na hona jane,Kyun hona hi hai

Tum se hi din hota hai,Surmaiye shaam aati
Tumse hi tumse hi,Har ghadi saans aati hai
Zindagi kehlati hai,Tumse hi tumse hi

Na hai yeh pana,Na Khona hi hai
Tera Na hona jan,Kyun hona hi hai

Aankhon mein ankhne teri,Bahoon mein baahein teri
Mera na mujhe mein kuch raha hua kya
Baaton mein baatein teri,Raatein saugatein teri
Kyun tera sab yeh ho gaya hua kya
Mein kahin bhi jata hoon,Tumse hi mil jata hoon
Tumse hi tumse hi

Shoor mein khamoshi hai
Thodi se Behoshi hai
Tum se hi tum se hi

Aadha sa wada kabhi,Aadhe se jayada kabhi
Jee chahe karlu is trah wafa ka
Chode na chote kabhi,Tode na tute kabhi
Jo dhaga tumse jud gaya wafa ka

Mein Tera sharmaya hoon,Jo mein ban paya hoon
Tumse hi tumse hi,Raste miljate hai
Manzile miljati hai,Tumse hi tumse hi

Na hai yeh pana,Na Khona hi hai
Tera Na hona jane,Kyun hona hi hai

Happy Valentine's Day... :)

For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.
Happy Valentine's Day...!!!!

Diveagar Beach can easily rival any beach on the west coast of India for its clear waters, white sand & serenity. Diveagar is situated approximately 200 km from Mumbai & 150 km from Pune. Reaching Diveagar is quite easy, take a right turn from Mangaon on the Mumbai-Goa highway, from here its a one-hour drive to Diveagar.

Diveagar is just like any other village on the Konkan coast but it gained overnight fame upon the discovery of Ganesh idol made of pure gold in one of the Supari Baghs (Garden) in the village.

The beach is a real revelation, a 6 km long stretch with white sand & clear water. At one end of the beach is a fishing settlement while the other end offers a sanctuary to the migratory seagulls feasting in the creek waters.

The beach has a lot of Suru trees, which are common to coastal Maharashtra. The access to the beach has a dense cover of Belu trees, which are very uncommon sight on this coast. Diveagar has numerous households offering accommodation for as low as Rs.300-400 per day. The local cuisines are worth exploring & better enjoy eating it as no other options are available.

Diveagar is an ideal weekend getaway for anyone. Dont expect any luxury hotels & typical city eating joints here but be prepared to be surprised by the simplicity & calmness offered by this place.
