The clouds of words- Stories

Stories are just like storeys. Stories have words as the building blocks and storeys have bricks as the building blocks. Storeys are constructed higher and stories are constructed deeper.
– Jackie Jain

Stories..  so we all have them in our minds. Actually we all live in stories with ourselves as the heroes in them. The villian of the story is our brain. We have to keep the activities of that villian, thoughts, in control. Heroin of the story, is our heart. We have set free that chained heart. It is done by controlling our thoughts. Giving them a direction and bringing them back to track of goodness is the theme of the story. This works on the principle of working of laws of attraction. Like attracts like thoughts. Control your thoughts, Set your heart free and be the hero of your story.

We all keep telling stories to others so that they can relate to them or to find a better path for their life. We tell stories inorder to live. Stories never end, they are just repeated with a different hero. Stories, they are the portals which takes us to a new world with our eye as the medium and thoughts as the traveller. We forget where we are and land in a world where words count is the population and story is the world itself. Sitting on the words we travel deeper and deeper into the story and understand its plot. What a wonderful kind of journey it is!!

Stories, they are like a cloud of words. Words which rest in books gets dried and forms clouds in our brain while we read them. When we process those clouds, they burst and meaning of those words keep raining in our brain. We travel in that raindrops to a new different world. Our seeds of thinking grows by this process which helps us in turning us into a better person. Yes, stories.. we all have at least one in our mind. We keep them safe in our thoughts locked in neurons. Unlock them. Our world needs rainfall of words for the growth of thinking capabilities.

Thanks for reading. Have a good time. Time for a wordy rainfall.

A key journey in a train with a stranger

It was a hot sunny October afternoon of 2015, when I stepped into the railway station of LokManya Tilak Terminus (LTT). I checked out the electronic display fixed near the enquiry office and came to know that my train will be arriving on platform number 3 at 12:43 pm. I checked out my watch. It was 12:30 pm. I rushed to the stair case. When I stepped down the stair case on the other side, I reflexed back in a shock. Seeing the platform completely filled with passengers suddenly made me feel more concerned about our growing population. I just imagined the book Inferno by Dan Brown which was in my bag, which I had picked to read in that journey from LTT to my home, Kakinada. Note that I have already read that book twice till that date.  For a moment I wished that Bertrand Zobrist should exist in real.

* Train tickets mentioned here are just because this is a train journey and life engine because engine is related to train *

I stepped into the train when it arrived. S5 coach, Berth No. 32 it was. I always prefer Upper berth when I travel alone, because of the freedom it offers. Just go and sleep whenever you need, no issues. I surveyed the people around, a couple in their late 60’s sitting near the window seat, a man sitting with a smart phone in his hand and another man sleeping on the other upper berth of the compartment. Not a single person which I wished to see. No colors in the compartment.

The train blew horns and the tires started to roll slowly making the passengers feel the effect of a mild earthquake. After 10 minutes of doing nothing, a young man in his late 20’s came along with his wife and a 3 to 4 year old son. Finally something to feel happy about. Hey, I am talking about the small cute baby son. He came to me and asked where I was going. I said Kakinada town, the final stop. He then requested me that they are two members and they got tickets to Secunderabad in two different coaches S 5 and S 9. First we went to S9 and there no one could shift to S 5 as some were with their families and somewere old enough not to shift. Then he requested me to shift to S 9 as I was travelling alone. His berth number was 31 and mine was 32. Seeing his wife and their 3 year old son, I was not able to say No. I said I will shift at the next stop. They thanked me and arranged their luggage in the space provided under the lower berths. The train stopped after 15 min at the next stop and the guy said S 9 coach, Berth No. 41. I controlled my anger hearing the berth number, and finally got down. Shit! Lower Berth.

When I stepped in S 9, which I consider lucky number for me, I moved to the berth No. 41. Just 3 people were seated in the compartment of 8. And that young man said that no one could shift, he should have said that half of the compartment was empty. Let it be. A couple in their 40’s were sitting and chatting, I mean both on their own smart phones. One man in his early 50’s was sitting at the window opposite to me. At least I got a window seat here. That man in his early 50’s started the conversation.

“So that couple which came here few minutes back exchanged this seat to you?” he asked.

I said “Yes”.

He nodded his head and said “Good.” and then he asked “Where are you going?”

I said “Kakinada” and asked “You?”

He said “Secunderabad”.

And the conversation took off from introduction to all trending topics then, around the world. Till evening we talked a lot about the worldly affairs, politics, economics, population and marriages in India. Then for a break, we just sat watching nature outside for some time, it felt good.

Then we took tea and while drinking it, he said that after a long time he talked in this way to a stranger. I said me too. Then we started to talk about our lives. He asked what you do? I said I completed my B.Tech last year. He nodded and asked now what you do?  I said “I help my father in his business . . And I also blog” Then I explained him about blogging and what revolutions it can create if we use it in a good way. Then he told me about his daughter and her determination to follow her passion. He told that his daughter started to learn Japanese at a very young age, as she was fascinated by that language. Even though many people in their family opposed it, she didn’t let down her passion. She then got an offer as a translator in a company as the clients of company were Japanese. Then she flew to Japan, and settled down there.

I was very much inspired by the story. And he started to tell about his parents and told that he is very lucky to have such parents. He appreciated a lot about CIPLA’s initiative of treating Cancer Patients for free. There was a center of CIPLA where they treated Cancer patients.  There he admitted one of his relative who was suffering from Cancer and CIPLA took extreme care. There were lot of patients and CIPLA treated each and every person with utmost Care.  He told that he saw many people dying there, and told how precious life was.

He told to follow the passion as we will never get another life to follow our passion. I made up my mind that I will not give up blogging, which earlier I thought of giving up. I even stopped blogging for six consecutive months before from (Jan 2015 to June 2015). Then he told about his reason for his trip to Hyderabad (Twin city of Secunderabad),  as one of his relative was not feeling well, and that relative’s son called him to visit them once.

Time had passed over 9 pm then, so we started having dinner. We shared our food. My dad’s sister (Lives in New Vashi from where I travelled to LTT for boarding that train) packed me pooris and curry along with some khakras. He brought chapatis and we shared them. Then we had a little chat on spiritual and divine topics. He told that he visited a village ( a village near to my place) twice and he felt solace and calmness by visiting temples in that place. He told that his wife played an important role in taking him to spiritual path. I never visited that place even though I heard it before. I made up my mind that I will visit that place once.

It was over 11pm, and he said he sleeps by 11. Hyderabad which we will reach by 4 in the morning, I told him to wake me up by 3:30 am. But when I woke up, it was 7 am and he was gone. I told him thanks in my mind. I brushed my teeth and then had tea and Idli at the next station. Dan Brown would be angry with me that I didn’t even take out the book during the entire day of the journey. Just like Dan Brown unlocks the mysteries in a thrilling way, Life unlocked the key to my passion, in a most unexpected way. Who would have thought that my shift from S 5 to S 9 will shift my thinking on life. I felt inspired that day and in the afternoon I stepped down from Train on the Platform of Kakinada Town with a new ray of happiness and hope.

I knew that even though new year was four months ahead, my new year has started then. My new way of thinking towards life. To bring out the creativity in me, no matter what. I left behind the nervousness and depressions I have gone through then. I knew that a new sunshine is waiting to spread the golden rays on my future. I looked forward for my life with passion and determination to succeed.

Thank you uncle. This was my key Journey in a train with a stranger, now who is not a stranger anymore. Thanks for reading.

A Journey with an unknown Destination

We are on a journey, with an unknown destination. Day by day with our deeds as the base, our destination is decided by time.

Isn’t that a miracle that page by page we move to the next chapter of life. Every one’s life written in a different style and of different theme. In some pages stories of different people meet and then again after few pages, they move on with their own stories and pages. There are eureka moments, Bravado moments in everyone’s life. Why don’t we enjoy each and every page of our life-book instead of waiting for the climax of the story? Life is in the journey. Not in the climax. Enjoy life. Live it. Learn from it. Place your foot in pace with time and value each and every moment.

Magic needs a logic, similarly Miracle needs faith. So keep faith in time. It is writing your life with your confidence as the ink. Never lose the self-confidence. Always keep your brain filled with positive thoughts so that it don’t dwell in darkness. Don’t wait for miracles to happen, always keep in mind we are living in miracle, the miraculous time. If you still believe you haven’t seen miracles, you are unaware of the categories that comes under Miracles.

Be the Cartographer of your destiny

Life is like a map which we have to design in order to reach our destiny.

Ever thought that these lines on our palm can be the hidden lines to our destiny! A map which takes us to our destiny. The reason for which we are born. These lines, which are the portal that takes us to our destiny depending upon the field on which we put our hands. Join hands with fellow humans and unlock the cipher of our palm-lines, our destiny.

Cartographer is a person who makes maps. So can’t you become the cartographer of your own destiny? Your life? Design your life. The map that will lead you to your destiny. What’s the use of living life with no passion in living it. What’s the use of living life in a normal way, when we are given only one chance to live it? Change the gear of living.

Don’t fear, change the gear, smile be the only thing you wear, see your destiny will be near.

Never let your mindset Change the way you live. Don’t think that tough situations makes you weak. They just tests your strength in darktimes, so that you can shine brighter in good times. Shine. Shine from within. Go. Find yourself.

Life dipped in happiness

Life is a mode of transport, with body as luggage, soul as passenger and time as wheels.

We can change this mode of transport. And this luggage is a shield that keeps us safe and comfortable. We as passengers have a passion which we have to spread into this world. So keep going. Whenever the time,which are the wheels of this life,  stops you somewhere don’t think it is the end to your life. It’s just that the vehicle is refilling itself, with energy and happiness. Be happy. That’s what keeps this journey safe. Be ready to face anything. This journey is unpredictable, that’s why this is surprising. Don’t computerize your life. Never be afraid when you fall. If you are falling down, it’s just that you are being dipped in the magical water of happiness and bliss. Be strong. And when you raise all the doubts in your mind will meet the dust. Keep following your passion in this one directional life.

Do you know what’s the secret of a meaningful life? It’s about being happy and peaceful in any situation. Situations are like net-traps. They test you and try to capture you depending on your behaviour and character. Don’t fall into these traps. Be happy. Being happy is like a scissor to these traps. See how easy the secret of life is. Doing what we like and liking what we do. What else we want in this 1-lifed game. Play well. You are the player with your passion as the game.

The best is yet to come

You will never feel happy, if you give some space in your heart on rent to negativity and ego. Because they may occupy your heart. Then where will happiness stay?

Our source of happiness is not in the things or the people we see. The source of happiness is in the way we see them. If you use your eyes not only for seeing beautiful things, but also for seeing the beauty in things, you will always be happy. There’s beauty in everything, if you don’t see it, either you are seeing it from the wrong angle or at the wrong time.

Even though the memories are stored in brain, the links to those memories are stored in our heart. So don’t think that people stay in your mind, they stay in your heart. If you keep people in brain (Enmity and hatred), then you will feel heavy and gloomy. If you keep people in your heart (love and care), then you feel lighthearted and happy.

You don’t have to step down on every station, the train of your life stops. You are on this journey of life for a particular destination. Stops are not the destinations, they are just the assessment times of your life. Analyze what has happened in your life and try to improve yourself. You don’t have to prove that to anyone. Just keep doing what makes you happy. Don’t hurt anyone in that process. As they say the best days of our life are yet to come. Believe it.

If things are not going your way, it’s just that the things are trying to tell you to follow a new way. The better way.

Life is not same to everyone. Some count days as +1 and some count as -1. What’s the point in being sad and feeling worried. You can live life in thousand ways on a single day. Do what makes you happy, as happiness is like air. You have to breath it to feel it. Be happy. Breath happiness. Stay inspired.

It’s been a week since my last post. No, I didn’t run away just because they said our world is going to end by the end of this September. The reason is that my mother fell down of a slope and has injured herself last Friday, and now she is absolutely fine. Doctor has applied a white cement bandage around her right hand for three weeks. She is feeling good now. So all well then. Take Care. Have fun with work. Thanks for reading.
