Strange Strangers

Strangers are so strange. Each day, we meet a new one. And each day, we forget an older one. Some of these stay in our lives for a very short duration, like a few days, or maybe a few hours or just a quick glance of an eye. While there are others, who ought to be in our lives a little longer. Maybe a year or two?

Be they with us for a short time or long; for just a glance or a stare; for the Earth’s rotation around itself or it’s revolution around the Sun; you ought to believe that, Strangers-teach-us-useful-Life-Lessons!!

Accept it or not, strangers give us their most honest opinion on almost every other thing. “They have nothing to lose”, you might say. True. You’re absolutely right. But once you’ve been slapped on your face (not literally!), won’t you rethink upon what went wrong and then improve yourself? Or would you rather prefer the fake encouragements of your so-called friends (no offense) and be satisfied? Left without any scope for improvement..?

Anyways, what I want to say here is that, yes, strangers can be rude or they could be kind; but we should all be glad for they exist. They have been sent into our lives by God to teach us a lesson. An important one.

Doesn’t it make your day, when, after a long, hectic day at work, you receive a sweet, kind smile from an eight year old  – a stranger – on your way back home?

     A smile is a very powerful tool. It speaks a thousand words. This gesture, as small as a smile, is capable of lifting off the burden of the entire world – which we carry around, on our shoulders – within seconds. Suddenly, the words, Humanity, Kindness, Honesty cross your mind. You may think it was just another stranger… but wasn’t that feeling great? At that very instant, you start reconsidering your life. You start thinking about the actual purpose of your life (which maybe you haven’t thought about so deeply, for like the past so many busy years) , your needs, your luxuries and so on and on….. until…….

“HELLOOOOO…!!! ARE-YOU-THERE..??” …Until you hear these words. At first, you think you went unconscious for a while, but by then you feel everything is shaking!! Wait. What? Oh nooo!!! YOU-ARE-ABOUT-TO-FALL-DOWN AND LO! “AM I TALKING TO A WALL??!” Suddenly your eyes fall upon the confused face of your friend and you realize SHE was the source of those loud words and the shaking. You realize that you had been so engrossed with the strangers’ thoughts that you couldn’t hear even a single word of your friend’s constant blabbering!

Sometimes, a stranger makes you think even more deeply, than a friend does…

A few strangers enter your life to become friends. Others, come in as a stranger, become acquainted, become friends.. but eventually leave as a stranger. It’s life. You can’t stop anyone from leaving. But, make sure, you cherish the good, old memories you’ve had with them. *wink*

To all the strangers in my life- I’m glad that you all exist. I hope you are too… 🙂

Love from a dog! <3

Dogs love us unconditionally.
You may find it hard to trust people; but with dogs, you don’t even have to think twice before entrusting them with your deepest secrets!
That’s the beauty of their souls. Their love. Their unconditional love.
If you haven’t yet experienced the love of a dog, then, I must say, you still have got no idea what “TRUE” love feels like..!
It’s a feeling that can never be explained. It’s truly heavenly!! *_* ❤

‘Curiosity killed the cat’, they said. But wait…

What if it was a Schrödinger’s cat?

Then, maybe we can hope that it’s still alive (until and unless you open the box, of course).

A Lie..

A tear rolled down by her cheek. Her vision blurred. And though she nearly chocked and couldn’t utter even a single syllable; She braced herself, put on a weakish smile, gave the slightest wink and spoke the smallest sentence, with the biggest lie, “I’m fine.”

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

*Spoiler alert*

A lovestory. Yet another lovestory I would want to say. But NO!! THIS ISN’T YET ANOTHER LOVESTORY! It’s something else.. It’s one piece of beauty. It’s more than just a book. It’s different.

Personally, I don’t like reading lovestories. Because, honestly, it’s kind of the same story over and over again… It feels very much stereotypical. There’s a good looking handsome guy who likes a sweet but shy girl, or there’s a very charming young girl with such a charisma that there’s a long list of guys dying to just know her name, but she falls for a boy who initially isn’t interested in her, but later falls in love all the same.. What I’m trying to say here is that, it’s the same age-old drama that follows with a bit of a spice for better effect. But the main plot remains the same. This bores me.

But I’m pretty damn sure that whether or not you love lovestories, you-are-going-to-LOVE-The Fault In Our Stars. Yes! No kidding. John Green sure does know how to make his readers happy (and heart-broken at the same time.) Anyways, he is one heck of an author. He’s just brilliant! Those uses of metaphors and whoa, the quotes! Those beautiful philosophical quotes! Mesmerizing! This book is the first ever lovestory, (though it comes under the Young Adult genre) that I haven’t just liked, but LOVED!
The book is very well crafted and well scripted heart touching story about two Cancer patients viz. Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters. I loved the over all contents and the way of writing is just awesome!  It’s as if like, the book won’t allow the readers to get away from it before completing “only one more chapter” (I hope you understand what I mean by it, fellow readers!)

And just as John Green says, I fell in love with the book and it’s characters, just like the way I fall asleep. Slowly at first, and then suddenly and completely. But the ending was truly very heart-breaking because of the death of the charming young man, Gus. But I guess, we shouldn’t worry much about it, (Worrying is a side-effect of dying.) because in a recent “Q & A” conducted by John Green via Twitter, he had said that, “Characters in novels live as long as they are read about or remembered.” So according to it, Augustus still lives in my heart. Lovely. Isn’t it?

Okay? Okay.
