well someone asked me this qtn on d blog
"how do u thnk the horse depicts love?"
the image i have put on the previous to previous blog is my picture of love as an picture shows all the creatures in pairs...mayb as nature intends them to be eventually in life..all of it the birds, the butterflies or the horses are free...flyin away..running away to freedom..away from the retrictions society puts on you..away from what your near ones expect..away from what the world wud expect u to do ideally..lost in the pure feeling of two people caring and loving each other..
and more than the individual components, it is the picture on the whole..i read a beautiful idea somewhere..that maths does not apply to real life..everything doesnt add up to the sum..same with this picture..the individual beauty of the components does not add up to the actual beauty that the picture is above what it is made of..i donot know if i am being clear about what i am saying..atleast im clear to myself:)..

bhopal gas tragedy

did you know that
1) a part of the corporation Union Carbide which owned the plant that causes bhopal gas tragedy has being renamed as eveready insutries(whose cells we all use) so as to make people forget their anger for Union Carbide and still sell their products.
2) the ceo of union carbide at that time has still not been extradited from US.
3) the governement of india was confered the right by the courts to fight for the bhopal citizens and insted of the 3.3 billion initial compensation demand, they settled for 470 million.
4) the plant in bhopal still lies polluted with the pollutants seeping into the groundwater.
5) dow industries with which UC merged refused to accept any responsibility now for this event.
6) dow chemicals has an ad campaign sayin there should be a human element like all the other elements and in this campaign has done philanthrophic work in bombay, while at the same time this is the company which produced dangerous chemicals like napalm nd agent orange used in vietnam war...tats called hypocrisy.
Sunil Kumar, a Bhopal gas survivor (who lost his parents and five siblings in the tragedy) who worked tirelessly with the international campaign for justice on Bhopal, committed suicide recently. Thousands of other survivors suffer psychological afflictions, but there are no provisions for the treatment of mental health problems as a consequence of the gas disaster.
read sunil kumars story on and plant a tree in his memory on 27th september every year.

you can't please everyone

You know lots of people have this ailment..”not being able to say no to people”..
i had this..i used to give more importance to people rather than myself..that way I would end up troubling myself a lot for other people’s sake..thats bad because you cant keep others happy till you are happy so don’t try to be god..just be a normal human being.

An Aesop fable
A man and his son were once going with their Donkey to market. As they were walking along by its side a countryman passed them and said: “You fools, what is a Donkey for but to ride upon?”

So the Man put the Boy on the Donkey and they went on their way. But soon they passed a group of men, one of whom said: “See that lazy youngster, he lets his father walk while he rides.”

So the Man ordered his Boy to get off, and got on himself. But they hadn't gone far when they passed two women, one of whom said to the other: “Shame on that lazy lout to let his poor little son trudge along.”

Well the Man didn't know what to do, but at last he took his Boy up before him on the Donkey. By this time they had come to the town, and the passersby began to jeer and point at them. The Man stopped and asked what they were scoffing at. The men said: “Aren't you ashamed of yourself for overloading that poor Donkey of yours—you and your hulking son?”

The man and Boy got off and tried to think what to do. They thought and they thought, till at last they cut down a pole, tied the Donkey's feet to it, and raised the pole and the Donkey to their shoulders. They went along amid the laughter of all who met them till they came to Market Bridge, when the Donkey, getting one of his feet loose, kicked out and caused the Boy to drop his end of the pole. In the struggle the Donkey fell over the bridge, and his fore-feet being tied together, he was drowned.

“That will teach you,” said an old man who had followed them:
“Please all, and you will please none.”

Well, so the best thing is to keep yourself happy..dont agree to do someone’s work if it makes u overburdened or unhappy because anyways you won’t do it properly then.dont give your commitment a higher priority than yourself..because you matter first and then your commitment..this way you may end up getting gaalis from some people but atleast u’ll be happy and anyways you’ll get sum gaalis(*&#*$#$&*#@#*) so why not get them for your happiness..

im blueeee

this is wat a color test online said for me..
You're blue — the most soothing shade of the spectrum. The color of a clear summer sky or a deep, reflective ocean, blue has traditionally symbolized trust, solitude, and loyalty. Most likely a thoughtful person who values spending some time on your own, you'd rather connect deeply with a few people than have a bunch of slight acquaintances. Luckily, making close friends isn't that hard, since people are naturally attracted to you — they're soothed by your calming presence. Cool and collected, you rarely overreact. Instead, you think things through before coming to a decision. That level-headed, thoughtful approach to life is patently blue — and patently you!
