Can we all come together?
To make this world a better place
Joining our hands in prayer
And stick through those trying days
We can make a difference
If we all just learn to be friends
So, why pick up these fights
Then lose your sense of direction
What did these innocent people do?
To fall under your wrath
Open your eyes to see
The mayhem you’ve in your path
Where is this going to lead you?
To heaven on earth
Think again, as you’re just kicking up dirt
We call for peace and you say no
We can’t sit back just to see you go
Guns and armors can’t solve anything
Let’s not create a war but a new beginning

Oh!! Well am back with another article, this time am going discuss on the topic of “Try and you will succeed”. I’ve heard “famous” people say this before but never believed in it. Come on now give me a break here, I have been trying hard to succeed in a lot of areas of my life and somehow I feel I am quite not there until last evening. Yeah baby!

I guess for the first time in a long time I felt success yesterday after trying for hours. What am I saying? I am just too caught up, let me explain. Yesterday, at work I had an important task that I had to complete. It was more of a deadline kind of a thingy. I am currently working on a research study on the European man guard market and yesterday I had to call up The Netherlands. I had been calling like for 2 hours straight and no luck. I walked in at 8:30 in the morning and it was like 4 when I started my calls (Don’t panic, I did do some other “official” work in-between). Anyways, so there I was sitting and basically breaking my head, getting all worked up and irritated (not only people refused to give their interviews but my team kind of fell short in having to write awards) How short? Well, we had to submit 4 awards this month and we fell short by not a big margin, we fell short of 4 awards! And my only hope was this one person from Belgium who can possibly be a nominee for an award, but I didn’t receive his email in over a weeks time and for the kind of state I was in, I lost the little hope that I had.

Then something happened. Yes, it’s a miracle I know lol but it happened. There was this one person who was willing to help me out and he not only gave me the information I needed but he answered all of my questions without any kind of hesitation. Now, how cool is that. So I felt a little no actually a lot better. As, I was about to end the call I receive a mail. Yes, right again it was the mail I was waiting for. If your thinking how lucky she can get. Think again because I don’t think this was luck.

Only because I tried without giving up did I get the interview that I needed. You might ask me, why then did I consider this a miracle earlier? I did that because I believe that it was because of my perseverance. I don’t intend to sound so philosophical but am sure many will agree with me on this one and those of who you don’t feel free to leave your comments. :-)

What I am trying to say here is that I learnt something yesterday. It is not that only if you gain stardom or popularity can you say that you tried and that’s how I succeeded. It applies to every single person and every single action you perform. It’s only because I was willing to make the calls did I somehow end up speaking to atleast one person who was being so informative, and this happened only because I tried. Now am not going to get awarded or praised in my office for this. Why? Because it’s my job and this is what I have to do. But I felt so content and felt a sense of accomplishment in helping my team in every which way possible. And I felt even happier when I had my loved ones feeling ecstatic about it.

I realized all this when I was on the bike with Archana K C ( one of my dear freinds), I even told her that this is what I am going to put up on my blog next. So people out there even the little things you do on a day to day basis will make you feel a winner when you sit back and realize what you have accomplished. So try and try you will succeed does work! Catch y'all on my next post. B4N!


There comes a time
When you need a helping hand
Someone to lift you up and make you stand
You look around to find that all have gone
But you know in your heart
That God won’t let you drown
We all are alone someway or the other
Even the happiest person will go through trouble brother
So why take it all on yourself
Leave it to god and he will help
Go about life the same old way
Only this time you will have your say
Life is beautiful, life is fun
Learn to enjoy it and you will run
Don’t sit back and grumble all day
Instead pack up your bag and lead the way

There's so much do
There's so much to say
There are so many things
That's here out today
I wish I could be the star
That shines brightly from afar
I try so hard to instigate
You don’t have to under estimate
Seek for the potential inside of you
Come out of the dark
Let the light shine through you
You don’t have to be afraid
To be all that you are
Know in your heart
That you’re the diamond and the star
Tell the world that you’ve made the start
Let them know that you’re playing your part
Leave the past behind you
You blue-eyed girl
You will see all evil crumble and curl
Be bold and be strong
Let this world now hear your song

Let us call upon the Lord
Reach out to the skies and shout
For he will be there to save us
Let's just call upon the Lord
The alpha and the omega
Is by your side
He will be there with you throughout the night
For you alone are my God
And in thee will I trust
With my soul crying out
I will call upon the Lord
Give him your heart today
And you will hear him say
How much you mean to him
Come on, just call unto him
He will make you reach heights
Take away all your freights
He will make your path straight
And then you will sing
Oh dear Lord you’re great
Let us call upon the Lord
Reach out to the skies and shout

It’s early morning, and she wakes up
Makes some bread and then she packs up
She brushes her hair and wears her shoe
Come on now, let me drop you
She goes for work and checks her files
She feels so tired after walking those miles
She still enjoys what she does
Come on now, what’s the fuss?
Friends come home and we party all night
Eat some chips and start a pillow fight
They are my world and it’s full of light
Come on now, join the flight
Take me to a place where the sun don’t set
Take me high so I reach the sky
My dreams and wishes will get satisfied
Come on now, stay alive
Every day belongs to us
Come on now, let’s take the bus
Let me show you around and then you’ll see
That there are so many of us
Longing to be like you or me

I thought you knew
How much I needed you
But you just left me all alone in the dark
After all these years
I still feel the pain
When every guy just leaves me in the dark
Am I not worth being loved, dear god
Am I the joke for all, dear god
They'd come to me
And tell me that am good
But in the end they just dump me like a fruit
It hurts me bad
As it adds on to the pain
But I still fake a smile in that pain
Am I really that bad, dear god
Am I going to be alone, dear god
No one sees
The pain inside of me
I cry all alone in the dark, dear god
They all just need me
For sometime in thier lives
And then they all just tell me
Leave me alone, leave my side
For how long I've to be this way god
For how long I've to be alone, dear god

Oh no, Here we go again
Don't start, don't be such a pain
I know what your upto
And am sick of all that you do
You say that you love me
But do you?
I don't need this
Because I can see right through you
You're no good
Trust me when I say this
You're absurd
And this is something that I heard
If you say, you love me
Why can't you treat me right
If you say, you care
Why do we fight
Oh no, Something ain't right
Don't start lets just not fight
You tore me apart
With your harsh words
And now you're a free bird
You're no good
Trust me when I say this
You're absurd
And this is something that I heard
I don't know what is happening
You just are so damn frightening
I need to get away from here
And start afresh without you
Being anywhere near.

Last night was special apart from the fact that it was Valentine’s Day, there was something else that made an impact on me and someone who’s special in my life. I am not a major movie buff and I don’t understand the technicalities of it. But, I am good enough to appreciate a film that was remarkably one of the best or may be I will go one step ahead and say “The Best” thought provoking movie that I have ever seen in recent times. No I did not go out to watch a mushy mushy love story, I am talking about a movie with a tag line that says “Every Child Is Special” Yes, I am talking about Tare Zameen Par.

I am just going to give you a quick snap shot of this movie. It revolves around an 8 year old kid who endures a lot of pain because no one around him recognizes that he is a slow learner. He found it hard to cope up with his studies and always felt pressured by his parents. He was packed off to a boarding school by his parents hoping that he would become a bit more disciplined but this just added to the kid’s trauma. The separation from his family made the child feel neglected, rejected, unloved and uncared for. He felt that he was given the worst punishment of separation just because he wasn’t excelling at school. His parents and teachers compared him to his brother who was an ace student in all fields. They failed to realize that this child needs help and love.
Alright, now why am I writing an article based on this? I have my reasons and I am penning them down. I know for a fact that this movie will make me cry but what I didn’t realize that it would have such a big impact on me. Every kid is special, and different. They all need to be treated correctly. I know a girl who had a similar problem when she was 10 years old. No she wasn’t suffering from dyslexia (like the actor in the movie) but, she did feel left out and rejected all her life. She was an average student, was ok at sports and sings well. So, then, what’s the similarity between the kid in the movie and her?

People in her life failed to realize that she felt unloved and uncared for. Most of her life she didn’t have her father by her side. She faced a lot of verbal and physical abuse right from when she was 10 years old. People didn’t know or rather failed to realize the impact it can have on a child. She went through hell, from her parent who didn’t want to believe that she was suffering from an eye problem right from grade 2. Oh, she voiced out the problem but her mother dismissed the whole thing by saying that you don’t have a problem you just want to “show off”. I mean why would a girl who’s in grade 2 want to show off with glasses. She suffered because of this, as she sat in the last row she couldn’t see the black board and always had to look into her neighbor’s book to copy notes. This was a huge problem because she got caught by her teachers during exams for trying to copy when all she did was trying to copy the questions written on the board. Because her mother failed to realize this, her grades dropped. She finally got her lens when she reached grade 7. There has been so many such instances in her life She longed to tell someone about how she felt, but everybody dismissed everything she had to say. She felt the separation right there and spent hours together in her room crying and longing for someone to hold her tight and hear all that she had to say. For any child family is something that’s permanent, something that will always remain to be a part of their lives. But, what happens when they fail to listen to that child like in this girl’s case or when they over look a certain disability like in the case of Ishann (the actor)

The child starts to develop fear, a mental block rather. This stops the child from letting people (parents, teachers) know that he/she is having a problem and that it needs attention and help. Every parent, teacher, friends and siblings needs to communicate and listen to what each other have to say. Every child needs to be heard, they need to know that they can go up to their parents for anything and everything. A child will only know this if parents make them feel that they are there to help them at all times. In the case of Ishaan there was Ram (arts teacher - aamir khan).In the case of the girl there was no one. She is all grown up now. But she stills carries the hurt of wanting to tell someone how she felt and that she needs help. Till date she knows nothing about her father, except may be for his name and designation. She doesn’t know what it’s like to have a papa or dada as she would say. She has achieved a lot of things in school and in college but she never had her dad calling her up to tell her that she’s made him happy or congrats on your achievement. Only she knows how much she wanted it.

It was this movie that made her realize that she has achieved all that Ishaan did and that is something to be proud of. She didn’t know that she was good at something because no one in her family recognized her talent and no one appreciated her for her work (till date). Nobody (family) even knows that she writes even though she has shown her work. She didn’t have a Ram in her life to make her realize that she’s a winner. But, through the movie she understood that she has done it. She also realized that she’s all grown up and that she is not that little kid any more. She has been waiting for nearly a decade hoping that things will change for her but nothing did, she realized that she is old enough to be there for the other kids who are like her, but, she is still longing for a family that will appreciate her every work. And with all her heart she waits, waits patiently.

I would like to conclude by saying that, please do not neglect any child. Listen to what they have to say. Make them know that as parents we re always here for you. Yelling, beating or any other kind of abuse is not the way to correct a child. It’s only through love. At all times let your kids know that they are loved. This girl still waits for the void created by her family to be filled. Don’t ever make your kid feel alone because once this gets registered in the kid’s mind and heart, the trauma the child faces only I know and it HURTS. The child is yours LOVE HIM/HER abundantly.

There she was looking at me
With roses in her hands
That was given by me
Yeah, she’s my girl
We had a tiff
Now, am just wondering what else to gift
I keep pacing up and down
And every time I look at her
She just frowns
It’s Valentine’s Day today
And I made her sad
Let me do something
To make her glad
I think, I think, I think real hard
And I came up with an idea
Wow, I am smart
I quickly sat down to write a song
Just so I and my sweetheart can sing along
I slowly walk toward her
As she looks around
I hold her close to me
And I sing a song
You are my valentine
And I love you
Don’t feel angry, don’t feel blue
Am sorry for making you upset
I know that’s wrong
I accept my mistake
You accept my song
You are my valentine
And I love you
Don’t feel angry, don’t feel blue.

I read your Blog….Keep up the great work of being real and letting Jesus shine through you. Some Christians get so preachy that we don’t seem real to people which only turns people off. They need to know that we are real and that, yes, we struggle with issues too, but we have someone that will help us through all of our struggles. We should all have a goal of helping people that suffer and coming against injustice. We need more Christian like you!
God Bless You!
Pastor John Marvin

There she goes walking down the empty old street
As tears filled her eyes
She tries so hard not to cry
But the pain's so hard to take
She falls apart
She doesn’t seem to understand, why
No one chooses to be by her side
They all seem to want her
But, not for life
Poor girl seems helpless
Disheartened she beats up herself
She shows her true colors only to the one, she loves
But many fail to ease her, and just storm out
She knows in her heart, she is all alone
And when she cries out, people slam the phone
Is it her fault that she needs some attention?
How much does it cost to give her that affection?
Every tear drop is counted
Every cry is heard
But as for this little girl
She has made up her mind
She will be kind
Kind enough to be there for the ones
Who need her for life.
With pain engulfing her heart
She takes a stroll through park
She has seen this happen to her
Time after time
It’s no different, it ain’t a crime
She picks up the pieces
And pulls up her life
She wipes all her tears
And says goodnight.

Hi people, firstly, thank you all for your comments on my first article. I really appreciate y’all taking time out to read it. This has encouraged me to go ahead and write my second one. I mostly concentrate on topics that can make an individual think. Am not saying that he has to act on it, but I believe that thinking is the first step before someone jumps into action. Agreed? Well, for my second topic I decided to talk on the subject of “Love”. Now, wait am not referring to the romantic shade of it but Love as a whole. Let me ask you, how many of us actually take time out to let your loved ones know that you really care for them? Answer, sadly not many. We don’t realize the impact this can have on a person.

I have in my life time come across various people, different race, color and religion. Well who hasn’t? Anyways, now not everyone I meet leave a mark on me but, most of them did. If you ask a close friend of mine he will tell you that I call all my friends as my close friends.

Years back, I took a major leap of faith and I moved away from the ones who betrayed me (friends). Nope, am not complaining about it because the 2 months of isolation I went through made me realize the value of letting your loved ones know that you care. I felt so lost and unloved. I was in disbelief that my own friends can actually be so cruel. Time passed, I made new friends but I was always haunted by my past. I found it difficult to cope up; somewhere down the line I always thought these friends would betray me as well. But, they all contributed in making me believe that they are there for me no matter what. And that made me feel loved.

Every human alive will agree with me that it is important to show some love to your loved ones. Be it love from a mother to her child, brother to a sister or a boy friend to his girl friend or whoever. I will not deny the fact that everyone expresses their love. Am not here to debate on how much you have to or how often you have to express your love. Am just asking you “if your loved ones know that you love them no matter what”? Many of us, am sure have felt that we should have shown this person a little more love or treated him/her a little better. I have felt it. But, by the time I even realized this I had lost the person for good. So, I decided to show my love for people I love with every chance I get. It makes me feel special when I have people tell me how important I am to them and how much they love me.

Do you know that, with just your loving words, you can put a smile on a sad face and heal a broken heart? Try it and you will see. You might be the busiest man on planet earth but if you have someone who is longing for your love don’t be too busy in letting them know u care. Because you might be busy loving what you do and they might be busy loving you (take it in the right sense). Am not saying that that’s all they do.

If you have a loved one waiting to hear from you, don’t think twice to call him or her. Spend time with your loved ones every chance you get. But, don’t miss out on the “other” things that are a part of your life. At the same time if you not getting the attention that you feel you should get. Don’t go asking for it. You are worth so much more. Also, stop to think if you’re treating those that are in your life correctly.

When you’re away from your loved one, be it whether you’re in your college or your work place or just hanging out with your bunch of friends, make an attempt to at least call or text your loved ones, a simple hi will make him/her feel special and wanted. After going home spend time with your family, find out what happened at home when you weren’t around. These are few things that you can do. I get busy once am at work but I make sure that I let my loved one know that am thinking about him with may be a call or a message.

I have seen cases where the opposite party doesn’t even react properly when he/she receives a call from a loved one. Maybe your busy maybe your not but don’t ever take things for granted. If you were unable to react properly due to unavoidable circumstances just let your loved one know that you were caught up in a situation that forced me to react this way. And when a loved one calls you, talk to him/her properly, avoid giving away signs like you aren’t interested in talking to him/her because, that could hurt.

Everyone in this world wants to love and be loved. When you have an opportunity to show it to some one don’t be a fool to miss out on it. Never let a person who is counting on you for your affection, love or care, down. They want it from you because you make them feel special. Be happy that there is someone who is longing for you, waiting for that one call or message from you. Please, do not think twice to let your loved once know that you care.


How many of us here know what our purpose in life is? How many of us can boldly or rather confidentially say that I know what my purpose in life is? Sure, you can tell me that you found your purpose in life; you can tell me that you’re a successful business man or an ace student or whatever. But that doesn’t mean that you have discovered your purpose in life or does it? I mean I can relate to all of the above listed things, its just that I would call it a responsibility and not a purpose. I asked myself the same question and the answer is I didn’t have a clear vision or rather an insight of my life’s purpose (until 2005 dec). How can one determine his or her purpose in life? Now, am not saying that by the end of this article you will know what your life’s purpose is but am sure that it will at least make you think about it.

I never really gave a thought about this until December of 2005 when my life was transformed for the better. Never did I believe in the strange ways of God to instill a purpose into every one of us. Trust me when I say this each of us have a purpose we just have to dig deep to find out what that purpose is. Now, the question is how do I do that? I don’t know if there is one correct way to discover these things but I can tell you how I, found my purpose in life. Time after time you might have come across situations that could grip your heart and question god. In my case it was people, right from my young age I was able to connect with the ones who were hurt in life. I always had an urge to go out and be there for them in all ways possible. When I was in school we (friends and I) decided to visit an old aged home. I admit that this was not something we wanted to do. It was Diwali and we wanted to do something different and when this thought cropped up we decided to give it a ago. It was a meaningless act if you ask me. We were just caught up in the moment. So, we landed in this place handed over the “stuff” you know the sweets, clothes etc…to the management and then we decided to spend time with the “senior citizens”.

This was the turning point of my life. One little conversation with a grandpa affected me so much that it bought tears to my eyes. Soon, we left the place and as always my friends and I gathered up in the terrace to discuss on “the other” things. This experience for me was like a passing cloud because I felt at that time there was really nothing that I could offer these people and slowly I distanced myself from the entire episode. Years passed, I grew, and I no longer had the friends I used to. I was going through a rough patch in my life. I guess this is the time when every girl questions “Am I a woman or a girl”? Things took a sharp turn in my life and before I knew it I felt my inner energy was tapped. I could hear a voice cry out to me. I have never felt this way before. I felt so strong and empowered and it was during this time that I asked myself this question Tina, What is the purpose in your life? A quick flash back and once again tears filled my eyes. I realized that at that time I made the grandpa feel wanted. I made him feel that I was looking out for him and that I cared to spend Diwali with him for that little time. I realized that the meaningless act was not so meaningless anymore and after all those years my heart felt content. I realized that my purpose in life was to be there for the one’s who are hurt, for the ones who just needed that special attention, hear them out and give them the boost they need to stand up and get going. Now just because I do this doesn’t mean my life is a bed of roses. I have my share of problems and I at times break down. But, that doesn’t stop me from being there for others.

I have had people come up to me and ask “how can you possibly be there for others when you can’t be there for yourself”. Well I really don’t have an answer to that and I really don’t care how , I don’t even have to justify it because I know in my heart I’m doing what is right and more importantly am doing what is right without hurting anybody. Now, that I found my purpose I have put that into action. I may not be carrying this out on a major scale or level but I am doing it in every little way possible.

If today you have decided to find out what your purpose in life is make sure that you line up your purpose with your ability, needs and desires. Make the choice and be the difference is.


Are you going to sit down and grumble all day?
Are you going to sit back and not get up?
Who told you that you are not worth it?
Who told you that you aren’t good enough?
You are the air that fills the earth
I know what you’re going through
But it is high time you break through
You got all it takes to be yourself
But come-on now let me just help
You are not someone who knows it all
But you don’t have to end up speaking to the wall
Show the world what you made of
Look at all things that you’ve got
You really are special in your own ways
Don’t listen to what others say
Don’t be afraid to speak your mind
I am sure that one day you will find
The love of your life
But I want to see you geared up for life
I don’t ever want to see you weak inside
You got all it takes to be yourself
But come-on now let me just help
You weren’t born to be a loser
You for me are a sure winner
All that I want is to see you change
Come on be strong and don’t ever blame
Make me proud break the shackles
Stand up against the ones who look down upon you
Control you because you gave them the power to
You aren’t the victim but the victor here
Stand up and say that I am strong enough
So that everyone can hear
You got all it takes to be yourself
Come-on now let me just help

It’s so darn easy to feel alone
Just pack your bags and leave your home
I call my love to say a hi
All he had to tell me was a goodbye
What did I do to deserve all this I cry?
It’s not easy to move on but I try
I think that there must be another way
That will make it easier for me to say
Hey, hey come along
Don’t give up but just carry on
Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re weak
Don’t listen to all that they speak
You know in your heart you’re being true
And that you’re not expecting anything out of the blue
A strong miracle is all I need
To shut them up and fulfill my deed
Today you’re special and tomorrow you’re not
What world am I living in?
They all are just ready to poke
I believe in taking chances
To make the change
So be bold and shout it out
Let your voice be heard
Don’t be afraid
You’re as precious as gold
For someone in this world
Just find out whom sweet girl
Hey, hey come along
Don’t give up but just carry on
Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re weak
Don’t listen to all that they speak
You are wanted and you are loved
Maybe it's your time to kick off and fly
How will you know,untill you’ve tried
I am right here waiting to help you out
Ready to listen to all you got
I’m not the one to leave your side
But I will be there to see you fly
Hey, hey come along
Don’t give up but just carry on
Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re weak
Don’t listen to all that they speak.
