Nowadays we spent enormous money in interior home designing forgetting about space constraints inside rooms. Usually we design our home as per our wish and money, ignoring an important aspect ‘whether the home really needs us’.

If the home is fully crowded with all sort of furniture, machines etc., what is our need there..?

Just ask a few questions yourself.

  • Can you touch the walls and feel its murmurs? If the wall is fully packed with cupboards, photo frames, etc. definitely you can’t even see the wall.
  • Do you have a place to sit on the floor with your kids and family? Or is it fully furnished..?
  • Can you stand and watch out through your balcony or is it covered..?

If all the answers are “no , easy to conclude that your home doesn’t look for you. If a few aspects are taken care during interior designing, we can make our home lively and beautiful.

  • First and the most important thing is to have maximum ventilation.
  • Then fill furniture which are essential only, leaving enough empty areas.
  • Ensure to have enough storage places to account the smallest thing so that things won’t be spread here and there.

We can design our home in any way, but it is important to ensure that the heart of home is not broken with our designs

I am not fooled by my expertise.

But I want to play by my own effort.

Then why do you wanna help me hurting my ego?

She took a long hot bath. The heavenly smell of rose water spread all across the apartment. I was impatiently waiting for her in front of the dressing table. I want her to be wholly mine before she puts on any powder and paint.  Even the carpet was waiting for her to come out, to feel her wet foot.

Finally, the princess opened the door slowly. She was damn beautiful in that smooth silky gown. She smiled at me. Oh, how can I resist her seductive looks? Still I just pretended as if I was looking out of the balcony window.. She came to me with that naughty smile, hugged me so tightly, that I couldn’t even breathe. Then…

…..

 

Then she put me on her face. She wanted me with her always. No one can take their eyes off her ‘masked’ face. Yes, I am the MASK who protects you from being hurt or rejected.

Let me say Honesty is the best policy, which is true. But what if someone feels exhausted living in an authentic way.. Ah! , is that possible..? Maybe that’s why people start to wear me to hide their identity and finally forget who they were actually. I am the sign of your weakness. Think twice before you put me on

“You need to make it to 30 plus to avail the discount”

And I ordered 30 copies hoping for a discount…I overlooked it to be 30 or more as the limit for discount….

………………..

“The venue is at Kottakkal Ayurveda college”

And she thought it to be Kottakal Aryavydyasala and reached at wrong place. Another instance of oversight or familiarity blindness

………………..

“Approximately 2 liters of water collected since yesterday morning”

And on hearing the same, he thought it to be since today morning, as it was already feeded into his brain

…………………..

With very few people only I have found that attitude to decode exactly what is heard or read. Many a times most people assume things in their favor or in the common way or according to what’s feeded in their brain already. Sometimes they don’t have a second thought at all to think it differently, just assume it’s like that only.

My decoding lies in a 50-50 margin ;). With each instance, I hope to improve next time though instances only keep on repeating. And sometimes it decodes the most common thing in the most strange way and thus making myself weird. The poor brain is dabbling in extremes “ Onnukil Aashante nenjath, allenkil Kalarikku purath.” ( Its a Malayalam proverb literally meaning “Throwing oneself either onto the chest of the teacher or outside the arena”)

Why do I work hard to achieve more? Why can’t I be content with what I have?

Why my planner is always packed? Why can’t I simply sit and take rest?

Why do I need to think about the meaning of life? Why can’t I forget all such madness?

I know we all live and die.. but “Why did it bloom, if it’s going to wither?” or was it to leave just some legacy?

“We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born”– – Richard Dawkins

So immortality is not an answer to these questions. And death may not be the ultimate destination.

Maybe the answer lies in one’s own interpretations.

So either

Cherish every moments of life and Take a step back and laugh at yourself

or

Give up everything and be a monk..

 

Is it possible to have a grey stage between these two..?

Tomato didn’t like Potato, and potato didnt like tomato. Though they never dare to declare an open war, I was “brilliant” enough to understand the cold war happening between them. They cannot be blamed on starting the cold war as being brought up in a competitive climate.

Growing them together was really tough for me. With some ups and downs both of them were nourished in a decent way. I took extra care not to hurt the ego of any of them. Whenever I have to take a special care on any one of them due to xyz reasons, I was forced to keep my eyes shut towards the dark face of the other one. Many times somehow I could escape from the verge of lies.

This time also, I was struggling. I know a lie can never rectify the problem. It may just calm down the other, but I may get tensed if a family of lies are following the first one even if those are for some good causes.

Nothing wrong would have happened with the tomato or potato with a lie to please one of them. But my wandering mind would think over and over and finally start criticizing myself. So I decided to make it guilt free. I am relieved now with the truth.

White lies are heard here and there. Even if its harmless, I wonder “wont it hurt your soul?, wont it make oneself tensed? wont your brain feel guilty?”

PS: Tomato and Potato need not be persons, could be any two contradictory things or interests in your life.

All the symbols were living happily in their joint happily. They were all doing their jobs peacefully without creating nay noise. And it was a world of monotonicity in a way. No curiosity, no challenges and no questions too.  But the people [symbols] never realized it as they never know the other world of curiosity. So one day a ? (question mark) was pushed out of heaven[or was it from hell] to the joint family of symbols.

Ahh… the miracle started from that moment. People started to question things.. new discoveries were made..the life changed totally..

Questioning is always an effective tool. In fact a question can catch the attention of even a wandering mind completely as our brain always works in the direction of a question it heard.

And yes, “asking a question is a good way to catch your crush’s attention too”

Both of them were confused.

One asked “Which one should we opt?” The other replied “Actually I wish to learn both. Learning a new thing is always challenging. But I am ready to accept the challenge and move on”

The first girl “But we don’t have a chance to opt both, we can take only one of them. It’s difficult to identify the better one”

The second girl was still in her thoughts on learning both.

Then one of their favourite teacher appeared on their way. Both of them greeted her and had some casual talks. The first girl used the chance to share their confusion with her. And the teacher could add some new perspectives to their problem and obviously it helped the girls. And finally they could come up with a solution for their problem.


In fact in different ways, we are all surrounded with tons of information. But rarely do we pay attention to those signals around us or rarely we collect something out of it. Here the information appeared in the form of teacher and the first girl could use it to her advantage.

The second girl was not completely unobservant about the world around her. But the point is she couldn’t take advantage of the situation.


So are you able to take advantage of every situation whenever possible?

You always prioritise things in your life.

You are well organized to manage your daily routine.

You have a clear cut plan to achieve your long term targets.

Everything is well scheduled in your time planner.

Now, let me just ask “ Do you have a time for your soul, do you have that ‘me-time’ planned, if you can schedule even for the smallest thing in your life, why is there no planned time for your own self?

Don’t be guilty of the time spend in solitude. It’s always worth as it can cherish your inner soul and thereby spreading the warmth of energy all around you. So give yourself permission to have a little me-time.

Me- time doesn’t necessarily mean being alone. Do whatever makes your soul energised even if it is for a few minutes as posted in waves

“When people are running, you should run in the middle”

It’s a proverb actually meaning ‘one must strive to assimilate to the norm’.

Maybe it’s another prejudice wall built in the minds of people asking to change yourself when everyone around you is changing. And people easily fall in to that just to avoid that “awkward” state of being odd.

But,

Why do you need to go with the normal flow? You are living in your priorities and comfort. Of course, sometimes your priorities may overrule your comfort. But as long as you are only setting up your priorities and defining your comfort, why should you run in the middle of the crowd and make yourself less creative?

Okay, if you still wish to run in the middle ( as you are afraid of oddness or uniqueness) while people around you are running, better not to let your feet run faster than your shoes and make yourself fall.
