stop crying your heart out

I was kind of reluctant in writing this one because it’s kind of philosophical but since this thought crossed my mind I was forced to write it. I usually avoid many such posts by writing them in my statuses on facebook so that I don’t have to spend more time in elaborating them while writing a blog post, but this one exceeded the word limit so I was forced to write it... it’s nothing special but yes in a way I learnt something from it and also realised something which I would like to keep in my mind through out my life, and in order to remember and follow it I have to write it...







I was wondering what would have been my statuses when I was a kid ,what were the things that occupied my mind when I was little, what were the things that mattered to me and what made me happy and what made me sad.......


Here I am writing some of them in form of small status message


“aaj maine khud se patang udaai aur 3 patang kaati bhi ((I FLEW A KITE ALL BY MYSELF AND ALSO CUT THE STRING OF MY FRIEND’S KITE)) 
“I confirmed the English of ‘patang katna ‘ from many friends but not a single one knew it but to be frank while I am writing it in English I am realising how much we are in love with our mother tongue. We just can’t feel the pleasure of cutting the opponent's string in English, all you have to do is feel it in your mother tongue... I don’t know which word can replace the scream of ‘I BOW KAATE” I don’t even know what it means but that’s something I have screamed throughout my life with a perfect smile on my face.


“ aaj ma’am ne mujhe us ladki k sath bitha diya I just can’t tell how happy I am today”((I AM THANKFUL TO MA’AM THAT SHE MADE HER SIT WITH ME TODAY)) 
or


“aaj mere class mein highest marks aye”((I GOT HIGHEST MARKS IN CLASS TEST)) 
or


“ I am the new monitor of the class” 
or


“aaj maine uski ball pe sixer maara”((I HIT A SIX ON HIS BALL)) 
or


“ I hate it when teacher doesn’t take us out in PT period”...

"today my paper boat carrying my toy soldier reached the other end of the road"...


There were just too many simple things that made me happy at so many moments, in fact it’s with all of us we all smile while recollecting childhood memories, no matter what kind of memories they were... We all just come under the magical spell of simplicity, and the innocence of our childhood, But isn't it strange how everything changes as we grow up... ?


There used to be a time when a simple toy car was the best gift for a birthday but as we grow up we all know what are the things that will satisfy us... I was looking at an old snap of mine and I was showing a keychain having a dummy snake and a small tattoo that I got from BIG BABOOL ,and I just love that smile on my face...that sweet smile just can’t get replaced by a real snake or a real tattoo, or a real car, only thing that can give back that smile is innocence, something that makes our heart truly happy, what I mean by heart is that our brain shouldn’t interact with that. To be very frank I myself don’t know what I exactly want to say, it’s just that all I want is to live like the way I used to be ... happily carefree... I totally agree that we grow up, and with that our problems and responsibilities also increase but why do we have to kill the child in our heart. There used to be a time when only thing that bothered us was incomplete home work and punishments and things that made us happy were just too many...even a dish of Rajma Chawal (they still do it) decorated our face with a splendid smile... But the change that's prevailing now is that we prefer to criticize what we have rather than cherishing what we always had and what will always come in our way ... We cry for people who are not there ,we cry for people who left us but if only once we showed our love to the ones who are there with us we won’t get bothered by anyone’s absence ... There are millions of ways to hurt your heart and millions of things that make our heart smile and they are present  everywhere... It all depends on us what we choose, happiness is something that we should always choose... Only if we start living like the way we used to be as a child, nothing in life would hurt us and our heart... The way we used to fight with friends and start playing the very next day, forgetting each and every grudge against each other, in the same way we can forget other things too and forgive the defaulter if we want to ... It’s better to fight in words rather than keeping silence... There may be so many small things that bothers us and turns us down but for once if we think about the future of those things we will realise how to live with them, for if a, friend played a prank on you, you may be embarrassed, at that time, but people surrounding you must be smiling, may be at that time you’ll feel bad but someday you’ll surely laugh over it too... Sometimes all we have to do is fly out the talks that hurts, it may seem difficult but it’s not impossible... and the moment we accept this things turns out to be really simple
You must have heard this song ‘har pal yahan jee bhar jeeyo jo hai sama kal ho na ho .....’It’s something that we have to realise that same ambience won’t be there in future...there’s nothing that can return our childhood; in the same way nothing could ever replace this time of our life....


All I want to tell you people and what I want to remember is just 4 things.....


"jee bhar jeeyo" (live to the fullest) because you’ll surely miss it someday... It’s always better to remember happy memories...


Every time you are hurt jus recall “kyun dil ko dukhana bevajah" (why to hurt your heart unnecessarily).....


And don’t kill the child in your heart, let it be there with you forever...

Do what you love and what makes you happier...


Ps-I would really love to read your comments on this one,  I would really love to know what happiness means to you....what are the things that made you happy when you were a kid...
