A New day.. a new dawn

"Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thank You Friend

Friendship is a funny thing.
We put it through all the tests possible... all the fun, the fights..
But the moment you actually realise its importance, is when you are so close to losing it.

Thanks for always being here...

Life's Ways 2

Our life is a summation of the many relationships we create and then forge as per our liking... and they are THE reason most of us enjoy living our lives.

But in each phase, we give importance to a different relationship..
our parents are our lives when we are young... we move on to school and friends move into our lives... their relative importance increasing as we move towards adolescence and adulthood... and so at each stage, we have different people by whom we get gravitated....
and its all good, because each of these relationships come of age, and we outgrow them when the time comes...

What I'm trying to say, everything has a time, purpose, reason, season... and so does every relationship....

Or am I just looking for a reason to sever my ties with people !!

मे मरासिम बनते है , लम्हों मे भला क्या टूटेंगे
तू मुझ से बिचादना चाहे तो , दीवार उठा धीरे धीरे

Life's Ways

"All my bags are packed
Im ready to go
Im standin here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
Already Im so lonesome
I could die"

All of us have a time of entry and exit.. not just in this world, but also interms of each others lives..
So even though its good to treasure sweet memories, it isn't a good idea to cling on to them.. or you won't let new people enter your life..

Chauvinism and Chivalry

There is also the debate on whether chivalry is good or bad...
whether a man should take pride in being chivalrous.. and a woman should happily accept...
or does it become a battle of egos between the two genders...

The bigger problem of course is when the thin line of difference between chauvinism and chivalry is lost. Again, I m sure many people of the fairer sex (keep guessing whether I'm referring to the males or the females) tend to enjoy it all... but is it right..
Isn't giving help to the other sex irrespective of whether it is required, an attempt to show their superiority.I've met many men :) who take pride in not just being chivalrous but also chauvinistic.
I really don't know if there is one right answer to this one... there are lots of people who enjoy the attention and help, and lots who detest it...

The point is that the guy needs to be smart enough to understand what women want !!!
