Two clenched jaws, but expectant eyes
and something lies deep inside
fighting hard to keep the spark alive.
Two clenched jaws, but expectant eyes
A few drinks in the memory of a
Better time & a young heart
He won’t say anything
But he’ll tell you all.
And these walls will never speak again
Because the feet that hung from the ceiling are limp.
Steady now, the hands of paint,
Stands yet another beautiful crimp.
“But even so, every now and then I would feel a violent stab of loneliness. The very water I drink, the very air I breathe, would feel like long, sharp needles. The pages of a book in my hands would take on the threatening metallic gleam of razor blades. I could hear the roots of loneliness creeping through me when the world was hushed at four o’clock in the morning.”
– Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle
Loneliness is a common feeling, even when we’re among crowds. It is a crippling emotion that can slowly make you hollow. Although, there is no one solution for this. Finding your people, your interests and/or confiding in family can help. Otherwise, there is always the internet, where you can find and make good friends. Or channel those feelings into beautiful work. Hoping everyone has someone! Have a great day 🙂
When I told my friend that I was planning a Romantic movies post for the Top Ten Tuesday, she sat up, gave me her most shocked look and broke into the biggest toothed smile ever! She also said that she would be eager to know my favorite romantic movies of all time since my Top 10 Horror shows recommendation were the best she ever saw. And then we sat discussing for the better part of an hour which movies should make my list of the Top Ten.
I will admit, it was hard. After some discussion, I was almost inclined to make it a Top Thirteen post, we had so many good movies. And keeping in mind that it was February and it is wise to indulge in some mushy, good-for-the-heart content, romantic movies seemed to be a good topic. If you have a valentine or not, these movies are sure to make you feel giddy and full of love. Picture-perfect moments are sure to make you hopeful and full of life. That is why every once in a while I end up watching a romantic movie or even a rom-com because they are usually a light watch.
The movies below will be ideal for every kind of viewer. From classic romantic films to modern love stories, I’ve included them all! And because these are my favorite movies, I can guarantee that they will not disappoint on any level. Without any more dilly-dallying, the following are my picks for the best romantic movies:
- Love Actually
“…I told him a story of two people. Two people who shouldn’t have met, and who didn’t like each other much when they did, but who found they were the only two people in the world who could possibly have understood each other.”
― Jojo Moyes, Me Before You
Finding true love is an ineffable happiness. Finding true friendship is more precious because someone cares for you in a pure manner. This quote is not just for lovers, it is for all friendships that go above and beyond the normal expectations. I wish for this to happen to all of us!
Have a nice day!
While the world crumbles
and I shatter
I am complete in your arms
My world starts and ends
In the confines of your heart.
Another Throwback poem. This was written on 24th September 2009! Almost 8 years ago. How time passes! It’s called Duties to Follow.
“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.”
– Oprah Winfrey
“Sometimes a little getaway is all you need for refreshing the senses.” This is one mantra I had heard time and again, but never put to test. Travel is not very big on my agenda and therefore, an impromptu car trip was the furthest from my mind. Although I’m sure if I get down to it, I envision my future full of a lot of travel (Even though I’m the least adventurous person I know 😛 ). But studies had been a priority for quite some time now. A trip was long due because the last few months had been physically and emotionally exhausting. And this seemed like the perfect time to do it!
I will be adding pictures, as many as possible. Full disclosure, most of them were clicked by my brother! He has a better camera, and honestly, he’s just better at it than I ever could be! 😛
For those of you who don’t know, I live in India, specifically in the capital city of New Delhi. There is enough history and places in Delhi itself to absorb you for days! But, we chose to go to Agra this time and see the Taj Mahal. It is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It was my first time going there since I had grown up, and it was as stirring as the words in a novel! I could finally appreciate its beauty, significance, architectural precision, and perfection.

For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don’t remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.
― Charles Bukowski
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
