It was a shooting star! 🌠

Little Maroon Riding Hood 🌻

It just happened a night before while I left from the boys hostel to reach my hostel. 

This Mumbai-City-Partner of mine planned to drop me. On our way toward his bike I stopped to stare at the sky. I was dazzled with the constellation right when he was about to share the same feeling. 
So I explained him about my lucky stars, three that are vertically aligned and 4 that are misplaced into a triangle. 

Any wish that you make when these sets are visible together will come true and after telling this to him we paused to make a wish.
As soon as we opened our eyes and he spoke about a set of bear structured stars we saw something crazy. 

YES! A shooting star. ( I know this ain’t my first time but still a moment of Yay! )
It’s always fun with you buddy. ( This image is from our trip for baseline test in the government schools )

When I began to adopt some schools in a heavenly place. 

Imagine having a classroom located at the top of the hill for some time. Having a window that distracts you with those green but misty mountains. The soft and cold breeze that chills you with those ice-creamy skies. 

What if I say I’m working with such schools

The children of this community provide me an atmosphere which is family oriented. They make you feel like you are an angel and that’s the biggest encouragement to take in all the efforts to do something for them. 

It wasn’t that easy when I actually began this journey. Being a girl I had to be sure about my safety in these remote areas. But when you start taking small steps and start trusting families from these locations you get encouraged to explore more. And when you go through some homesickness, challenges and still find a sense of happiness you would want to explore more and this is what happened to me. 

As I and my team are under a District Transformation Program, we need to work with the Head masters of these government schools and build leadership within them. Our aim is students development. So that they achieve immense knowledge that they deserve. 

My trek toward these schools has been difficult. Every school is mostly situated on the top of the Kumaon Hills. Even though Pahadi people are used to it, when people like me come from Metro Cities like mine, happen to exhaust and tremble a lot. 

There have been days when I had no means of transport and I had to walk back for 16kms daily. Apart from this climbing my way to different schools was spraining. Eventually the best part was to never give up. I have felt the sense of inner achievement on every visit of mine to school. 

As I have performed various teaching patterns and introduced these children with the bigger world, I am planning to help them with career guidance and a healthy friendship. 

( My 2nd week experience page ) :

Today was one such day where I visited these students at Banshe P.S and I wish to be assigned for this school. All I wish to do is while the students are living between the skies, taking all the efforts to let them reach great heights as well. This fellowship is blessing our team with so many buddy-relations with these kids which we are never going to forget. 

Oh yeah this is just the beginning.

Between beautiful disasters 🌎

Have a look at those sharp mountains behind. The wild finishing to it’s skin are bruised by the frequent landslides. But it still continues to stand huge, strong & still.

 
Are you getting me? 

In the past few month after travelling into this heavenly district of Uttarakhand, I have been surrounded with people that have never seen more than what was made visible by the doors.

Many people with no hope of climbing down those mountains and migrating to a better place. Also children who have no clue how a city looks like or even had a simple bus ride.

These experiences have formed a baggage of emotions within me and everyday I think of ways to be a part of their lives. I crave to create a fairyland for them all. So that when I return to my city, I’ll have all hope that someday many of these kids might come down to meet me as well with all their achievements.

Let me share my experiences with these beautiful disasters. 

I’ve seen land slides. Walked on many roads with a fear of collapsing down the hill with the roads. Dared to look up above with worried predictions of huge stones sliding above me. 

I never knew how earthquakes feel like till I experienced a smaller one last month. Even though it was just a shaky experience but you never know what it could have resulted into. 

Mostly travelled on the edge of the roads looking at how deep the hills are and wondered what if I die? No one might even find my traces. 

I’ve climbed cold hills with worried feets. 

Every strangers welcoming smile that was adorable, alarmed me of being on a safer side in the deep forest roads of these remote locations.

They say this place includes huge alcoholism and fear of leopards. 

But where are we safe on this earth? No where. These are all challenges that I chose to accept and is why I’m walking without turning behind. 

Between these beautiful disasters I have found how beautiful my life could be. 🙂

Diwali Vacation – Back to Mumbai! 🌻

Time really changes, along with us and our situations.
I’ve noticed some change within me and within those people whom I used to come across regularly before and the way I deal with the things today and how bold I could be. 

Suddenly the tables are turned and I exist everywhere. 

But now I question myself that do I really need all of this? I don’t really know how to answer this but I know what I really don’t need anymore. 

So I want to go back far to that place beautiful, that teached me how life should be treated. 

If there is any story that I wouldn’t want to leave incomplete, it would only be all about my fellowship. 

I’m blessed & this is why I am a Gandhi Fellow. 

Though I’m back to Mumbai for my vacation but sooner will be leaving toward Rajasthan for our Boot Camp. 

And after that will travel a little more toward the lap of Himalayas where the work will be back on track. 

Have a Happy Diwali! 🌻

We must survive but happily.

image

Problems are part of our lives. We invite some and few occur uninvited. They seem to be out of control sometimes and how others remark our issues bluntly makes us go mad. They advice us to relax and take it easy and when they go through the same they are simply living our trauma too.
Another human tendancy after all!

I think my problems are always bigger then the others. And every other human thinks the same.

But what I really want to suggest here is getting at our hyper mode won’t really change the situation. The situation is going to remain the same and will change either for good or bad. All we should do is not let it impact our lives in a negative way.

Why? Because unless we keep ourselves content with what we have, our mind won’t possess the stability to deal with what is happening. Try to get involved in something else till the phase disappears. Eventually we are still going to have what was supposed to happen. One shouldn’t drown themselves in their grievances so much that they keep their lives aside.

(I’m going through a similar phase, it is difficult I understand. But trust me I’m doing and feeling better then what I used to before)

All you have to do is survive, but happily instead.

Thinking about getting back to your ex ?

image

Soumili’s tale tried narrating us about this girl, who comes across her ex boyfriend after several years and finds him totally different, good and improved. She feels good knowing that today he is a better person. So she refers him to her mother as a new guy with a sigh of relief.

We come across such situations very rarely because we know many people never change. It’s rare that a person will try to improve their character for someone else.

We must not expect anyone to stop betraying, cheating, fooling or playing around if that’s what they have been enjoying.

Need an example ?

Don’t you enjoy icecreams? So what if having too much ice cream can cause you problem, you have money and enough time so you’ll enjoy right? Similarly there are people who prefer taking pleasures even if they have to hurt someone else.

It is important for us to understand that the reason why they have been living this character is only because they are enjoying that very state.

The character of some people will always remain unpredictable so why must you deal with it? Few might come back to your life and make you feel they have changed, well and good if they have. But what if they are still the same deep within?
They must have convinced you or your heart must have felt that this time you can trust them. The only thing you must do is forgive them and move on instead of getting back.

Please don’t forget why at the first place you were seperated.

If you ever feel somebody has changed for good, wish them good luck, leave and lead towards exploring the other good things in your life. Like I have always suggested, you can live without. Be your own hero okay!

And if you still feel the one needs to be given a chance, go ahead but this time be careful.

Have a happy reading 🙂

Sleep talking secrets!

image

People can hardly pretend or lie in their sleep. Often the habit of sleep talking reveals the underlying truth of a person’s life. It discloses many interesting facts which are either sweet or bitterly sour.

The best part about someone sleep talking next to you is an easy understanding about what the person feels for you. Or how deeply a person feels about something.
Though the saddest part is coming across those facts which are not going to help you and also affect your emotions, diversely.

Have you ever heard anybody sleep talking? I know it is difficult to understand what the person is murmuring. Sleep talking is connected to what a person does throughout the day and where their mind was largely occupied into.

Here are some examples :

These people usually tend to extend the incomplete conversations of the day. Whatever they were involved into, their imaginary process repeats the same in their mind while they are asleep.
In such cases the person would only speak those things which they must have not spoken while awake.

Sometimes they reveal hidden truths upon asking as well. Try this if you want to involve some fun but I would suggest you to be careful if you are not good at accepting and handling truths.

There is a certainty of a person waking up to your questions immediately or upon them responding to your questions unknowingly too. That is an effective signal. A person will wake up with a sudden reaction only when they are aware that they don’t have to reveal certain things before you, either good or bad. They panic or pretend to not have understood what you asked, if they wake up after answering you something that you must have found weird. There lies the secret. It could be anything, a surprise planned for you, their personal issues, their plans etc.

If the person happens to be your partner, the sleep talks are either cheat-talks or love-talks. 

Don’t believe me? Try it on your family members, friends or partner.
It could be fun but be careful.
