Yoga – My life savior


DSC_9499.jpg

I always had been physically active person. Since childhood I was into sports and dance. Dance had been very integral part of my life which I continued even when I graduated and stepped into corporate life. But there came a time when I had to discontinue my dance classes due to work pressure and deadlines. That is when this sedentary lifestyle took a toll on my health. It is the time when I developed acidity. This was the time when I lost my father which had major impact on my mental health as well. I was depressed and I wasn’t able to let the pain out. After few months I started suffering from severe backache. Initially I ignored it as it was just a backache which I hoped to go away but it continued and it got worse. So much that every night I used to get up at around 3-4 AM as I couldn’t sleep with back paining to extreme. I used to try to sleep in sitting position. Lack of sleep worsen my health. And to top it the stress and depression was acting as catalyst. My face also started having reaction which later when consulted to doctor I learned that it was an eczema. This skin condition is caused majorly due to stress and tension and the back pain did not let me sleep which led to even more stressed days and nights.

I consulted couple of physiotherapist for my back issue but none gave me relief. Finally my friend recommended one physiotherapist (which was apparently was his friend). She examined me. She made me do Bhujangasana for couple of times in her clinic itself and surprisingly I felt little relief right after that. She explained me why it happened. Due to the lifestyle I have, I spend majority of my time sitting in front of computer. The other exercises that I used to do involved forward bending. All this caused my spine to get stiff and there was not enough flexibility. Now I knew I needed to bend myself both ways.

I started searching for other asanas which would help bring more flexibility to my back and spine. I started practicing these asanas. I also took this opportunity to achieve my long standing goal of reducing belly fat now that I had to exercise daily for having good night sleep. Within few months my back pain was gone and buried away. And I also managed to reduce my belly fat. The results were so motivating that I wanted to try more and more asanas. I wanted to increase flexibility of my entire body.

In this journey, yoga not only helped me cure my back pain and reduce belly fat but also helped me become more calm, mentally stable and happier person. Every time I try new asana it gives me a sense of achievement and it keep me going. A part of my heart is taken away with my dad which can never be recovered but now I can live with it in stronger way. My mental and physical health I owe it all to Yoga. It is truly a life savior for me.

Stay fit, stay happy.

Bruno…do you know?


Bruno, do You know? Well, How will you? You have millions of crazy fans all over the world. Specially the crazy ladies and I’m just one of them. 

I won’t call it as love at first sight, I don’t even believe in it. It was a gradually developed feeling. The first time I saw you I didn’t find anything extraordinary but the more I listened to you and watched you in your music videos; gosh! I fell in love with you. And I didn’t even come to know until I saw you on “The Ellen Show”. I wish I could be that Emily. Damn I was so jealous.

Never had so much faith in love or miracles
Never wanna put my heart on the line

You make me connect with each and every song of yours so much that it feels you are singing it just for me.

When you cry for your love with so much pain you almost kill me, I can feel that agony. My heart cries for you when you say 

bruno-mars-unorthodox-jukeboxmale-singer    I’ll catch a grenade for ya..
   Throw my hand on a blade for ya..
   I jump in front of train for ya..
   you know i do anything for ya..

 

 

 

When you say “When I was your man” I want to run towards you to wipe your tears.

And With the same conviction you make any girl feel beautiful with “Just the way” she is. I bet no girl can stop blushing when she hears the song. You definitely know how to make girls go mad for you.

When I miss my friends I “count 1, 2 ,3” and it brings smile on my face.

But what I love the most is the way you sing “Locked out of heaven” so passionately. I must have watched the video 100 times and every time I see your sparkling eyes and that cunning smile on your face it makes me fall in love with you all over again. 
You bring me to my knees
you make me testify

Oh! and what can I say about the “Gorilla” within you 😉

You put your heart and soul in your song and touches hearts of millions. I haven’t seen any artist fitting perfectly in every mood the way you do, be it a heartbroken guy, passionate lover or the friend in deed you are everything a girl can ever want. You are surely a Man from MARS 🙂

And now just as everyone knows how crazy I’m for you I wish one day you will also know…Bruno.

P.S. I’m so eagerly waiting for this Mars to land in India. Don’t you wanna have concert here someday?

Stereo Heart <3


Disclaimer: This isn’t a music review but an attempt to express my love for the music and for this particular song

Stereo Hearts” is a song by American group Gym Class Heroes featuring Adam Levine, lead singer of band Maroon 5. The song was first released on June 14, 2011. as the lead single from the group’s fifth studio album, The Papercut Chronicles II (2011).

This is what you’ll find out on Wikipedia. But for me this song is more than that. Its beats caught my attention when I happen to listen to it for the first time but when I read the lyrics I fell in love with the song.

So whenever I feel low or need something to boost my mood I go with its lyrics and play it loud.

SH1

It takes me on an imaginary long drive, I keep driving and the song keeps playing in the background. Well even right now I’m listening to it to let my emotions flow.

Sh2

There isn’t a single day I haven’t listened to this song and whenever I listen to it I forget bout the world around me. My iShuffle becomes boombox and I become the one Adam probably is singing for ;). I’m so crazy about it that I was thinking of getting Stereo Heart tattoo…may be something like this

SH3

May be some day someone special will sing it for me as well :*

My heart’s a stereo
It beats for you, so listen close
Hear my thoughts in every no-o-o-te
Make me your radio

On My Anniversary!!!


Whoa ho ho ho!!! I just can’t believe it’s been a year now. Looks like it’s just been few days. A year ago, on the same day and the same place I entered into a new world, met new people, found new family.  Yessss!!! My blog just completed a year. What were you thinking?? 😉

This one year has been really exciting with 106 posts, 4 pages, 158 followers, 9 awards and unlimited appreciation. And what a coincidence!! Just before I completed a year I received “Bog of the year” award :). With all the love that I received from my fellow bloggers and readers I could reach this point and will continue this beautiful journey.

Anniversary

With Love,

It takes my mind off


It’s a luxury, it’s an addiction, it has power to attract people, and it makes you feel good , releasing the stress. For me it’s everything and a thing which takes my mind off.

It comes in bottles of different shapes and sizes making it more attractive and tempting. Floral, fresh, mist or fruity. Pick the one which you like but most importantly which your partner like the most (after all perfumes are meant to be for….)

I happened to watch a movie called ‘Perfume – the story of a murderer’. Though it was quite depressing dark movie but it brought out some interesting facts about Perfume and caused to increase my interest in finding more facts about this man-made wonder. How and when it should be applied, the right points of application, difference between eau de toilette and eau de parfum, and may more.

Yes I would call it a wonder, a wonder which makes you forget the stress, a wonder which makes you feel good and the wonder which acts as a perfect catalyst in romance. Until I owned one I had no idea about the wonders it could make and used to think why people spend so much money on this scented liquid. But now I know how enchanting it could be and now I’m one of those insanely perfume fascinated people who want more and more in their collection.

I personally like fresh fragrances over fruity or floral. So here goes my recommendations (tried and tested 😉 ):

1. Pure DKNY

The aromatic quest for the best fragrances doesn’t end here…..

Coz I was born this way


“Emotional, stubborn, short-tempered, bi-polar….” I have many adjectives and many good ones too 😉 . The good or the bad, they all are part of me, they make my nature, they make me as an individual and different. Some can adjust with them others cannot. Those who accept me as I am become my friends, forever; those who don’t, well it’s their problem. I’m good with those who are good to me, and others … they don’t really exist for me.

I don’t like to waste my weekends sitting idle at home. I’m fun-loving person who loves to party, go out with friends, explore new places. I love to go shopping, get dressed nicely and can’t stand people with horrible dressing-sense. I may spend handsome amount on a dress and may not wear it for even once if I don’t like it anymore. And like many girls I want something new for every occasion. I’m not so foodie but don’t like to visit the same restaurant every time.

I think too much and act weird sometimes. I can forgive my enemies but cannot forget what they did to me. I cannot pretend to be good if I don’t like someone. And if I like someone I tell them upfront.I love to pamper my friends (and the special friend too 🙂 ) and love to get pampered.  I don’t talk to strangers and want others to approach me. And then you think I have an attitude problem? Well, that’s the way I am. Love selflessly and hate completely.

My dad keeps telling me to change, have control on my anger. May be he’s not completely wrong, but if I change myself then I won’t be myself anymore. I won’t be me and I don’t wanna lose ME. I ain’t a bad girl and even if I do, I was born this way.

Mirage – Break Free


Suddenly I realized I have been living very restricted life. I had my rules and I had been following them, may be just to protect myself from the bad world out there or may be just to keep my image clean. But what’s the use? Right now I’m all alone and I’m certainly not happy about it.

It’s different world here in US than in India. People are open-minded (it can be little debatable), they are more casual about few things and basically they don’t care what you are doing. This is the perfect place for me to live my life the way I want. Hell with the society, hell with the rules and now I’ll not stop myself from loving someone…. someone else.

Mirage – Trying to move on


When you are staying away from your family, in altogether different country, the people around you are the only family. I left my family behind, I left the person I loved so much…sorry I love so much. I have all the reasons to be upset, sit and cry but who’ll listen to my cry, who’ll spend his/her precious time in consoling me or entertain me? No one actually. So I have decided not to do any of this. I sure wanna make friends but don’t wanna open all the chapters of my life in front of any body and get emotionally attached and get hurt. I’ll be the one taking care of myself, so there’s no scope for any sorrow or regret. I’m going to live my life happily, may be at times it’ll need me do stupid things but I’m gonna do all it takes to keep myself happy. No one likes to see frown face, even I won’t like to see that in mirror. So yes, I’m going to be happy.

Mirage – Continues


It’s been more than 4 months I haven’t seen him..I haven’t even talked to him, not even had a chat. But there hasn’t been a single day that I didn’t miss him. Everyday, every moment, every single second his on my mind. I only know how I’m controlling myself. It’s hard not to message him when I see him online or not call him when I have his number stored in my mobile. But even he didn’t tried to contact me. I guess he doesn’t want to make it happen. He is deliberately avoiding me. But he can at least talk to me as a friend.

I think now even I should move on. Is it possible for me? No doubt it’s the most difficult thing for me right now but he left me with no option. The more I try to catch the more it seems to go away. I’ll leave it to destiny now. I’m too tired to fight with my fate.

Note: I had been writing this series of fictional story. For some reason I had discontinued it. Thanks to Diana, who writes the other side of the story, for getting me back with it.
