Modern day Nirvana?

"NIRVANA"
Go to Google Type, N-I-R-V-A-N-A, Hit enter and lo you've got Nirvana!!

The very first search result returned by our very own Wiki (How can we forget our buddy Wiki, who helped us all while doing our projects!!) is
Nirvana was an American rock band that was formed by singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987. Nirvana went through a succession of drummers, the longest-lasting being Dave Grohl, who joined the band in 1990.

Not satisfied with This Nirvana? Never mind, we've got another Nirvana for you (Once again, Our Wiki says!) Nirvana is-
Nirvāṇa (Sanskritनिर्वाणPaliनिब्बानnibbānaPrakritणिव्वाण) is an ancient Sanskrit term used in Indian religions to describe the profound peace of mind that is acquired with moksha (liberation). In shramanic thought, it is the state of being free from suffering. In Hindu philosophy, it is union with the Brahman(Supreme Being).
The word literally means "blown out" (as in a candle) and refers, in the Buddhist context, to the imperturbable stillness of mind after the fires of desire, aversion, and delusion have been finally extinguished.[1]

Still not satisfied?? Well... Then I decided to close my eyes and think for a while as to what is this Nirvana.. In a moment a series of flashbacks started popping up from the past. Some bitter, some sweet, some hard to forget, some best not to remember. 
After a long pause I realized Nirvana is Not just a single moment, its all those moments when you found out that pain could no longer hurt you.. A moment of peace, a moment of happiness that you find, not from something that you purchased last week on 90% Off Sale, not from the latest movie that you saw, its when you thought you have lost it all but still decide to go on, its when you realized that you can't live without somebody/something but still let go, its when you do know you hate doing something but do it any way, its when you die Everyday but decide to wake up every morning.... All this for what? For whom..? ... For yourself.. Its then when you go into Nirvana.. Its then that no pain can hurt you any longer, its then you realize nobody but you have to love yourself and support yourself in the long race of life.. You don't get Nirvana in a moment, you earn it day by day.. Every moment.. I call it little doses of Nirvana!

So Did you get your Little dose of Nirvana, infact Modern Nirvana today?

Close to my heart... THE VAGABOND

                                         THE VAGABOND



    GIVE to me the life I love,
    Let the lake go by me,
    Give the jolly heaven above
    And the byway nigh me.
    Bed in the bush with stars to see,
    Bread I dip in the river -
    There's the life for a man like me,
    There's the life for ever.
    Let the blow fall soon or late,
    Let what will be o'er me;
    Give the face of earth around
    And the road before me.
    Wealth I seek not, hope nor love,
    Nor a friend to know me;
    All I seek, the heaven above
    And the road below me.
    Or let autumn fall on me
    Where afield I linger,
    Silencing the bird on tree,
    Biting the blue finger.
    White as meal the frosty field -
    Warm the fireside haven -
    Not to autumn will I yield,
    Not to winter even!
    Let the blow fall soon or late,
    Let what will be o'er me;
    Give the face of earth around,
    And the road before me.
    Wealth I ask not, hope nor love,
    Nor a friend to know me;
    All I ask, the heaven above
    And the road below me.

    I just love this poem... The vagabond, the wanderlust, the Ulysses, whatever you may call its All there inside me.. ..

how difficult it is..

How difficult it is to be what you want to be... To do what you want to do.. .. Is that so difficult a task? If yes, then is this life really our own... or we have it on rent... .. .. ..

It was a straight-forward question, a genuine one too.. But the question perplexed me for hours.. perhaps days..

It was a straight-forward question, a genuine one too.. But the question perplexed me for hours.. perhaps days..
After a tiring day at work I was switching channels on TV when a friend of mine called up, after the rituals of "Hieee", 'How are you?", she asked me a question that can be debated upon for hours but I am sure Nobody... Nobody has a clear cut answer. She asked me, "Can you tell me what is Love?", little amused, I answered, "Oh please, Don't tell me that you need this for some Project!", "No", she answered. "I need to know what it is.. How do you know about it.. How can you say that its love or something else.. ..?" Trying to lighten things up and avoid the question I said, "Google it up!!!" But to my surprise she said, "I already did.". 

          Well some how I managed to calm her down and told her that "I will tell you later." But somewhere, somehow that question is still stuck on my mind.
Can we actually tell what is Love... We all have very fancy stories, quotes, sayings to tell but when it is asked in a simple question, for a moment we find everything coming to a creaking halt! We all have seen.. Felt (at some point of time) and heard about it.. But what it is actually... How do you define Love.. How do you know that it is Love...

Some love stories never die..

Some love stories never die.. But the painful thing here is that these are all just stories.. ..  Because in reality even if love doesn't die it either fades, loses its charm, or sometimes you have to hide it and the most painful one is.. .. When You have to let it go, even though deep in your heart, in the moments of solitude you remember those old days and sigh, wondering how would it be if you could make those moments stay forever.. .. .. But.. .. .. would those moments be that special if you wouldn't have let them go.. .? Think about it..

aah ko chaahiye ik umr asar hone tak..


aah ko chaahiye ik umr asar hone tak

[daam = net/trap; mauj = wave; halqaa = ring/circle]

aashiqii sabr-talab aur tamannaa betaab 
dil kaa kyaa rang karuu Khuun-e-jigar hone tak 

[sabr-talab=patient] 


ham ne maanaa ke tagaaful na karoge lekin 
Khaak ho jaayenge ham tum ko Khabar hone tak 

[taGaaful=neglect/ignore] 


partav-e-Khuur se hai shabanam ko fanaa kii taaliim

[juz = other than; marg = death] 

sad... :(

I always say that one should never expect anything from anyone if one wants to be happy in life...  But then isn't difficult Not to expect something from someone once a while.. .. Is it wrong?
*SIGH*  Well... To err is to human...
Never mind... May be i should practice this "No-Expectations" funda lil more...

Wanted to punch somebody REAL HARD!

It was an ordinary day, except the fact that my head felt some tonnes heavier and my eyes burned like... Ummm... Furnace?! I already had in mind that I would finish off all the work a little early and rest but... some people around here are so utter useless that you really can't help but curse them atleast once a day (mind you, Atleast!) just when I took a sigh of relief after finishing my work, I was rewarded.. .. with some more work... Arrghhh... Dad is right.. He says some people around are only good for either procrastination or putting their workload on somebody else's head...
