Love said.........

Love said, 'Lie still and think of me'. Sleep said, 'Close your eyes till break of day'. But Dreams came by, and smilingly gave both to Love and Sleep their way. - Sara Teasdale

Life without love is like a tree without blossom and fruit. - Kahlil Gibran

There are a million things in the world I want, but all I need is you.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything, and two minus one equals nothing. Mignon McLaughlin

Where there is great love, there are always miracles. - Willa Cather

Love can never grow old, Locks may lose their brown and gold, Cheeks may fade and hollow grow, But the hearts that love will know Never winter's frost and chill, Summer's warmth is in them still.

Love works in miracles every day: such as weakening the strong, and stretching the weak; making fools of the wise, and wise men of fools; favouring the passions, destroying reason, and in a word, turning everything topsy-turvy. - Marguerite De Valois

You're nothing short of my everything. - Ralph Block

My mind tells me to give up, but my heart won't let me. - Jennifer Tyler

You don't love a woman because she is beautiful, but she is beautiful because you love her.

Love is like a mountain, Hard to climb, But once you get to the top The view is beautiful. - Daniel Monroe Tuttle

Being deeply loved someone gives you strength, While loving someone deeply gives you courage. Lao Tzu

Love is like pi - natural, irrational, and very important. - Lisa Hoffman

To be in love is merely to be In a state of perpetual anesthesia: To mistake an ordinary young man for a Greek god Or an ordinary young woman for a goddess. H.L. Mencken

You will never know true happiness until you have truly loved, and you will never understand what pain really is until you have lost it.

True love is knowing a person's faults, And loving them even more for them.

The person who said: All is fair in love and war, Obviously wasn't the person being hurt! - Neve Campbell

Love is like a knife, it can stab the heart or it can carve wonderful images into the soul that will last a lifetime.

If you say, I love you, then you have already fallen in love with language, which is already a form of break up and infidelity. Jean Baudrillard

Love is like a river, always changing, but always finding you again somewhere down the road. Kelly Elaine

Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired. - Robert Frost

Love is a moment that lasts forever... Julie Wittey

Real love stories never have endings. - Richard Bach

Deja Vu & Peace Is All We Need

18 years back, when I was in class 11th, I along with my friend Sandy (Sandeep Sharma) had formed a band called "Futurians".

Back then we had written a song called "Peace is all we need". No clue what inspired Sandy to start writting that song. Today while reading the song to Gamini (gave her all the lyrics we had written at that time couple of days back, as she has also started writing songs now), I just realised words written then is what we saw on the TV during Mumbai Carnage of 26/11. Each and every line reminded me of images seen on TV during those 3 days. Seemed like deja vu.

It reads like a poem written by a kids, but then again that's what we were then :)

Here are the lyrics:

"Peace Is All We Need"
Man is killing a man
We can't live, even if we can
Bodies laid down the lane
I can see it through the window pane
Guns are erected on buildings top
It is the common man being shot
All you can do is scream and shout
You're pulled away by a cop

What is the reason behind this
Can't understand at all
All we need is Peace
And peace is all we need

Clothes of people are full of blood
Some are killed and some just hurt
When I walk through empty streets
Blood strains are all I can see
There is so much insecurity
I can't cool down my curiosity
Where are those days of joy and gaiety
But now all I see is inhumanity


Flags brought up, flags brought down
Whose the king and whose the clown
You can see the faces with the frown
Its fear gripping the town
Oh God help them if you can
On all the killing there should be ban
Get rid of all this craziness
There should be endless reign of kindness


There should be room for everyone
Tomb for all those gone
For them we all mourn
And in despair we walk alone

Like father like daughter

Gamini now a days finds ticks on the dogs and pull them out. And I thought I had knack of finding them.

Never thought she would be chipping in daily chores at such an early age.

God bless you darling.

Friday, October 24, 2008


No clue why, just want to check on Purvi (from school days) & Sonal (From college days). Just want to know how they are doing in life. Tried searching for them for some time, but no luck.

Bought Gamini HER OWN ipod classic 120 GB today.

She is looking forward to owning HP TouchSmart PC. Will get her this year hopefully.

What a day

Am i Happy today, well that is a understatement and wrong question. Got custody of Gamini from court today. In all my research, couldn't find a single judgment of custody of minor girl child being given to the father. So couldn't have asked for anything more today.

Swamiji came to stay for a week with us yesterday and today the orders came. Is it a coincidence?

Gamini is ecstatic. She started jumping and dancing when I told her of the order. She hugged me and said "Didn't I tell you I'm going to be with you only".

Went out for dinner, had fun and she is sleepign like an angel.

All I can say is "Won the Battle, War is ON."

Great job by my lawyers, great support from Dad and Gamini and all friends and family that came out to support me. Wouldn't have been able to do it without you all.

Last but not least, wouldn't have been able to pull it off without the doings and lies of my ex-wife, oh wait divorce case is yet to start. ROFL.

Truth prevailed, lies went down the drain.

Myself Without You - Reba McEntire

Another great lyrics:

Myself Without You - Reba McEntire

When you walked out that door
I was so sure my world had ended
So sure I'd never get over you

On that first night alone
I cried so many tears it scared me
So many dreams that I had to let go
But now I know

That the world still turns and the sun still burns
And that's what I've learned without you
And the days roll on and my heart gets stronger too
Don't think I didn't love you
Just because I made it through
But I learned to love myself
Without you

I take myself to dinner
And I go to the movies solo
That's something I never did before

You may not understand this
But I don't' wait on invitations
I'm not afraid of the great unknown
Of being alone cause the

The world still turns and the sun still burns
And that's what I've learned without you
And the days roll on and my heart gets stronger too
Don't think I didn't love you
Just because I made it through
But I learned to love myself
Without you

I can even see myself
Falling in love with somebody else
Ready to take that chance again
Cause I know now
What I didn't know then

That the world still turns and the sun still burns
And that's what I've learned without you
And the days roll on and my heart gets stronger too
Don't think I didn't love you
Just because I made it through
But I learned to love myself
Without you

I hate love

Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.

Neil Gaiman

Summer Vacation Fun

Me and my baby are on Movie Marathon for last couple of days. Watching 3~4 movies a day (and night). What a joy. Man most of hindi movies are such crap.

She has already finished more then half of her summer vacation homework. We planning to hit the road in few weeks for vacation.

Her latest hobby is Nail Polish. Every day i take her nail polish off to apply new shade. Like her royal highness, she sits there and I am removing and applying Nail Polish. YEsterday night she was having late night sandwich, while I was applying nail polish on her feet. It is a blast. Yesterday we bought 10 new shades of nail polish. I am trying to convince her to buy Blue & Green shades and ues she bought Black.

She is developing great music taste. We almost have same taste. Everyday she wakes up to "Wakeup Little Sussie", then she listens to her playlist of 5 songs before she gets out of the bed. Playlist includes "Suzanna", "My Little Girl", "I Want Candy". "Please Forgive Me" and "Wonderful Tonight".

That reminds me time for the little Sussie to be woken up. ;)

Dad's Ode for Gamini

Dear baby,

This is your dad's ode to you.

Love you.


My Little Girl - Tim McGraw Lyrics
Gotta hold on easy as I let you go
Gonna tell you how much I love you though you think you already know
I remember I thought you looked like an angel wrapped in pink so soft and warm
You’ve had me wrapped around your finger since the day you were born

You beautiful baby from the outside in
Chase your dreams but always know the road that'll lead you home again
Go on take on this old world but to me you know you will always be
My little girl

When you were in trouble that crooked little smile would melt my heart of stone
Now look at you I’ve turned around and you’ve almost grown
Sometimes your asleep I whisper I love you in the moonlight at your door
As I walk away I hear you say “daddy love you more”

You beautiful baby from the outside in
Chase your dreams but always know the road that'll lead you home again
Go on take on this old world but to me you know you will always be
My little girl

Someday some boy will come and ask me for your hand
But I won’t say yes to him unless I know
He’s the half that makes you whole
He has a poets soul
And the heart of a man's man
I know he’ll say that he’s in love, but between you and me
He won’t be good enough

You beautiful baby from the outside in
Chase your dreams but always know the road that'll lead you home again
Go on take on this old world but to me you know you will always be
My little girl

Maaeri by Euphoria

After ages heard this song, and it touched a chord in the heart, so here it is "Maaeri" by Euphoria:

Teriyaan, meriyaan pul gaya
Pul gaya haar te jeet
Hey maaye ki karna main jeet nu
Howey na je meet, howey na je meet
Bindiya lagati to kaampti thi palkain maeri
chunniyan sajaa ke woh deti waadein kal ke maaeri
Mere haathon main tha uska haath
Thi chaashni si har uski baat
Maaeri aap hi hansdi, maaeri aap hi rondi
Maaeri yaad vo yaad vo aaeri
Gallan o kardi, maaeri aakhan naal larhdi
Maaeri yaad vo yaad vo aaeri
He maaeri

Baarishon main lipatke maa aati thi vo chalke maaeri
Deriyaan ho jaye to roti halke halke maaeri
Phir se main roun, phir se vo gaye
Thandi hawaaen ban ke chhaye
Maaeri heeri o gaandi, maaeri gidde o paundi
Maaeri yaad vo yaad vo aaeri
Jannataa o longdi, maaeri mannatta o mangdi
Maaeri yaad vo yaad vo aaeri

Ab ka karoon, kaa se kahoon e maaeri
Ab ka karoon, kaa se kahoon e maaeri
Duniya paraaee chhod ke aajaa
Jhoote saare naate tod ke aajaa
Saun rab di tujhe ik baari aajaa
Ab ke milein to honge na judaa
Na judaa... Na judaa... ho...

Hoonte to aaye, koi te le aaye
Maaeri yaad vo yaad vo aaeri
Gallaan o kardi, maaeri akhiyan nal larhdi
Maaeri yaad vo yaad vo aaeri
Pull gayi mera pyaar maae, bas lage maheene
Maaeri yaad vo yaad vo aaeri
Yaad vo aaeri, maaeri yaad vo aaeri
Maaeri yaad vo yaad vo aaeri

Ab ka karoon, ka se kahoon e maaeri
Ab ka karoon, ka se kahoon e maaeri.

Saint Francis of Assisi

"Where there is hatred, let me sow love. Where there is injury, pardon. Where there is doubt, faith". - Saint Francis of Assisi

I bet Saint Francis of Assisi never got married or had money. If his wife stole his money for years or his wife left him and his kid for her boyfriend or his wife filed a false 498A complaint against him, would he be saying the same. ;)

Lyrics of Aksar by Shaan

Found these great lyrics to song called "Aksar" by "Shaan". Thx for the song Babu.

Aksar kyun yun lage ki tum koi aur ho.
Hum tum jahaan the mille woh guzra hua taur ho.
Aksar fir yun lage ki tum meri jaan ho.
Tumse meri zindagi tumhi meri pehchaan ho.
Dil hi dil aksar...
Haan............................tumhe soch kar dil hi dil aksar.
Aksar dil ko hai tumse mujhe kya milla.
Meri zindagi mere pyaar ka,tumne diya ghaisla.
Phir kabhi jub kareeb se main khudko dekhlun agar,dil ke aaene main bas tumhi tum aaogi nazar.
Dil hi dil aksar.
Haan.................tumhe soch kar dil hi dil aksar.
Aksar ek sawaalsa mere zehen main uthe.
Hum tum ghar bichahd gaye honge kaise silsile.
Ghabrakhe main is khayaal se main tumse leeput gaya.
Tumho to main bhi hoon,ab tumse main jaaoon kahaan.
Haan.................tumhe soch kar dil hi dil aksar.
Tumhe soch kar dil hi dil aksar...

Hal-e-dil yar ko likhun kyon kar
Hath dil se juda nahin hota

Na tab hijr main hai na aram wasl main
Kambakht dil ko chain nahin hai kisi tarah

Subah ro ro k sham hoti hai
Shab tarap kar tamam hoti hai

Kahun kis se main k kya hai, shab-e-gam buri bala hai
Mujhe kya bura tha marna agar ek bar hota

Ab to ghabra ke ye kahte hain ke mar jayenge
Mar ke bhi chain na paya to kidhar jayenge

Ranjish hi sahi dil hi dukhaane ke liye aa
Aa phir se mujhe chhod ke jaane ke liye aa

Dil hee to hai na sang-o-khisht dard se bhar na aaye kyon
RoyeNge ham hazaar baar, koee hamein sataaye kyon

Gam se kahin najat mile chain payen ham
Dil khun main nahae to ganga nahayen ham

Daastaan-e-gham-e-dil unko sunaii na gayi
Baat bigdii kuchh aisii ki banaii na gayi
Sab ko ham bhool gaye josh-e-junoon mein lekin
Ek teri yaad thi aisi ki bhulaai na gayi
Ishq par kuchh na chalaa dida-e-tar ka jaadoo
Usne jo aag lagaa di woh bujhaai na gayi

Insaan jab is jahan mein aya uske pass gam tha
Aur jab is jahan se gaya tau uske pass gam tha
Khushi usne jis lamhe ko samajha aye rab
Dar-asal tab uske gam ka ehsas kam tha

Kabhi kisi ko mukammal jahan nahin milta…
Kahin zameen to kahin aasmaan nahin milta..
Tere jahan mein aisa nahin ke pyar na ho..
Jahan ummeed ho uski, wahan nahin milta…

Life at crossroads

Going through phase of my life, I never imagined I would have to. But then that is life. God works in mysterious ways.
