Nothing Compares to the "WORLD FAMOUS CHASE!!!"

The cops chasing the wicked scoundrels, the hunter chasing the deer, the farmer chasing the hens away; all these chases ultimately have a violent and tragic ending. 
But, nothing on earth can beat the chase that seems endless and yet has an end, the rivalry that appears to be too brutal and sadistic but wraps up on a friendly note, the notorious race that brings no tears but only cheers us up. 
Yes! am referring to the worst foes and the best buddies; the world famous 'Tom and Jerry show !'. I bet no one will disagree with me when I say that 'Tom and Jerry Show' is the ultimate stress buster.

Over the years, I have inculcated this very bad habit of sitting with my lunch infront of the television set, switched onto Cartoon Network. Fortunately, the afternoon hours have always been devoted to my favourite show. All I would end up doing was spending over an hour, nibbling as lazily as a sloth and laughing as excitedly as if I was Jerry the Mouse. Surprisingly, even after giggling for almost years a score, there has been no alteration in the amusement that they create.

This laughter riot from the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer warehouse is undoubtedly one of the best cartoons ever created. The most fascinating part of this entire series is that these two highly charming characters are absolute entertainers in their own right. They do not need any villain to create a thrilling moment. They are highly proficient in brilliantly crafting those breathtaking moments. They do not demand any policeman to create suspense. They have their own exceptonal ways to keep you glued to your television sets. Most importantly, they never call for any otherworldly ghosts to frighten you for their own devious plans are lavish enough to scare the hell out of you!

At times, the show definitely brings out the cruel side of you when you unconsciously keep on supporting Jerry the Mouse, regardless of all the mischief and havoc he causes. Everytime Jerry ruins the painstaking plans of Tom the cat, the child within you cheers for Jerry without any bit of sympathy for Tom. There is one distinct lesson that Tom gives us throughout the series. It is 'Try, try and keep trying till you succeed'. Though the poor cat hardly tastes success and all thanks to the clever Mouse. The show certainly is the best humorous portrayal of 'Violence At Its Best !' where you see Jerry shredding Tom into millions of pieces, Jerry inserting Tom's tail into the electric socket, Tom employing almost every possible brutal instrument like bullets, poison and even dynamites to kill Jerry. The show has been criticized for its excessively gory nature but still is loved by one and all across the world.

Keeping aside all the mayhem and destruction caused throughout the starting fifteen minutes of the show, what stands out at the end is the 'Genuine Friendship' that exists between the Cat and the Mouse. Definitely, they are 'Friends Forever', who cannot survive without fighting with each other,yet enjoying the company of one another. One cannot imagine Jerry without Tom and Tom without Jerry. This is the depth of their bond which makes them stick together after all the revengeful bloodshed. 
Cheers to the ultimate fighters of the century..'The Tom and Jerry Show' rocks !

We need 4 hugs a day for survival, 8 hugs a day for maintenance & 12 hugs a day for growth. - Virginia Satir, Family Therapist.
When was the last time you exchanged a hug with someone? Do you remember the feeling of immense love and contentment you feel when you’re hugged? Does it make you feel special and wanted?

There is a difference between ‘social hugging’; where you paste an artificial smile on your face and exchange some quick hugs and pecks on the cheek, and therapeutic hugging. Therapeutic hugging is meant to be healing. Reaching out and touching someone and holding them tight is simply a natural way of saying you care. When you’re embraced, you feel all your worries melt away and you want live the moment and take it all in. The warmth radiating from the embrace engulfing you is enough to reinforce the positive energy around you and lift you up.

From the time a foetus is in its mother’s womb he is exposed to the healing powers of ‘touch’. Our skin being a ‘sensory’ organ, responds to tender loving care. The amniotic fluid forms a secure abode for the child when he is growing inside the womb and provides constant stimulation to every inch of its tiny body, forming the origin of the yearning for touch for the rest of our lives. As a newborn, a baby recognises its parents initially by touch.

As our children grow up, we tend to start taking them for granted and expect them to just ‘know’ that we care. But what we don’t realise is that even as adults we often crave for some physical touch and expression of love. So kids aren’t any different, and at an age where they are still learning right from wrong and discovering new things everyday they need the reassurance and security of unconditional love. It can also boost their self esteem.

A hug is a great gift – it’s inexpensive, one size fits all, and it's easy to exchange. Sometimes it's better to put love into hugs than to put it into words. So take this as a reminder and try to be more generous with your hugs!


I wana fly up in the sky, Far away from worldly dusk.
Where light gleams and star twinkles, Day and night.
Where there is no place for sorrow, World is full of joy.

Where river of peace flow, Sunlight spread forgiveness.
Birds chirp love songs, Soothing air purifies your soul.
Nothing seems to exists but sky stretches to eternity,
No fear of past, No worries of future, men live life to lees.

If life was a lemon drink, I would lick it till last drop.
If Life was a sweet dream, I would never open my eyes.
If Life was a journey, I would never stop walking.
Life is to live for, I will live for every moment till I can.

If life is a song, Sing it peacefully.
If life is a game, Play till the end.
If life is a gamble, Hold your cards.
Whatever life is, give your best you can.

Don’t ever run your will, Never think to kill you desire.
‘coz it is one life ahead, Which will never come back again.
Obstacles may come your way, But face them with smiles.
Nothing is there you can’t have, you just need the desire.

Nothing is like hell or heaven, it’s you what you make of it
If it’s Hell one day, Heaven the very next moment.
This is the naughtiness of life, you can never imagine.
Whatever name you give, Its one and last time you live.

Life is a mystery unfolded, Life is a story untold
It may make you smile, It may makes you cry.
It takes you to height, and it shows you the ground.
It is a funny joke, and a tragic story all in one.

Sometime its beautiful day, Sometime its moonless night.
Each day a new, with a new hope and a new beginning
Life is to live, Before it ends, I wana fly up in the sky.

This is one of those moment in my life that I feel like burying myself under the blanket for a little longer,this is one of the moment that i want to lock myself in the room where dark brown curtains can't stop staring at me and this is one of the moments that i don't need an alarm clock to wake me up simply because i just don't sleep and this is EXACTLY one of the moments that I play ignorant game with the beautiful sunshine outside my window pane,refusing to attend to their warm calling and instead letting the darkness to heal my soul.

They are hurting me with their blunt words,yes the kind of words they don't think before they speak,the kind of words that would instantly bring me to pieces. Why they have to this thing to me when I have been all supportive to them all this while,how could they have the heart to say those things right in front of my face?How can they turn cold to me when all this while I have been their shoulder to cry?I am tired of their accusation,they should get out of my life or else I have to walk away from theirs,either one should happen but hope always there,whispering another chance,asking me to hold one because sometimes holding on is better than letting go..I should fight a little harder and I should wait a little longer,because this bond is for ages,shouldn't be tear off in just seconds..

Yes,some words should never left unsaid but some words shouldn't be said at all...

Maybe this moment is the ending of that short beginning...maybe

P.S:I guess I just need a cup of coffee..and some ice-creams as well..(bad combination,i know)

I’m missing the old me, the kind of person that I was a year ago. I guess SHE’s missing right now and I have no idea how to get her back to myself. I admired her truly because SHE had the courage to challenge the destiny, SHE decides what SHE wants in her life and SHE knew exactly how to fight for it. I miss that SHE who doesn’t give a damn about what others were thinking of her. I still remember her walking all through from hostel which is miles away to the class located on top of the hill because the campus bus wasn’t enthusiastic SHE was!!!

And I miss that SHE who will be sitting at the café for hours with just a glass of cold chocolate with a bunch of awesome friends and give marks for all the cool guys that passed around them!! And I miss that SHE who goes late to almost every class and walks out of the class with her ever famous cheeky smile without getting scold because her lecturer loves her :P:P

SHE got her own style of dressing up, and SHE knew SHE’s perfectly alright and looking awesome in that T-shirt and the denim jeans. SHE hated so much when guys stares at her and the same time SHE was totally has a crush on one of her young tutorial lecturer. Her friends looks at her weirdly because SHE kept taking extra subjects even when it wasn’t required by the university, her only reason was to learn as much as SHE can before SHE gets out of university. For her education was everything and that was also the reason SHE gave away a lot of things in her life.

But now that SHE was gone leaving me alone with ME.A totally Lame girl who doesn’t know what to do with her life anymore. SHE had neglected all her casual wear and now totally dress up in a ladylike way because that is what expected from her. The new ME is not enthusiastic about life anymore ..ME takes life as it comes, just following the stream and ME has no idea where it’s leading to…

And ME had forgotten her awesomely cute tutorial lecturer because the new ME found someone else to inhabit her heart. And that someone is one heck a crazy guy which ME has no idea why ME falls for him in the first place. That He is changing her in the way ME doesn’t want to be. That He is revealing The other side of me to ME..and ME doesn’t like when someone else invade her privacy circle but at the same time the new ME is enjoying each and every moment with him..

In a nutSHEll, This ME had turned into a complete idiot ..and all Me needs is SHE..If SHE comes back to ME ..then ME will be perfectly alright!!!

Confusing nah..well my neurons are more confused than you guys

P.S :Well I guess this is what growing up is all about…and guess what???? life iS STILL wonderful :P:P

I found a really good article about how to own your own life. While other writers often wrote about the recipes of life, this one is different. The author said that there's no secret recipe for happiness. I agree that we must be able to choose our own path of life. It's not about right or wrong but choosing the best path that we will take. The article also explains about the ups and downs of life which are very normal. Every once in a while we will face the ups and downs of life. What does it mean? It means that we must be able to find the reason behind everything. My fave statement of the article is when the author mention about life difficulties: "You must learn to observe life’s complexities through the eyes of a child seeing everything for the first time".

Making Life Yours
- Perception -
There is no secret recipe for happiness and contentment. The individuals who move through life joyously have not necessarily been blessed with lives of abundance, love, success, and prosperity. Such people have, however, been blessed with the ability to take the circumstances they’ve been handed and make them into something great. Our individual realities are colored by perception—delight and despair come from within rather than without. Situations we regard as fortuitous please us while situations we judge inauspicious cause us no end of grief. Yet if we can look at all we have accomplished without dwelling on our perceived misfortune and make each new circumstance our own, the world as a whole becomes a brighter place. A simple shift in attitude can help us recognize and unearth the hidden potential for personal and outer world fulfillment in every event, every relationship, every duty, and every setback.
The universe is often an unpredictable and chaotic place, and the human tendency is to focus on the negative and assume the positive will care for itself. But life can be no more or no less than what you make of it. If you are working in a job you dislike, you can concentrate on the positive aspects of the position and approach your work with gusto. What can you do with this job that can turn it around so you do love it. When faced with the prospect of undertaking a task you fear, you can view it as an opportunity to discover what you are truly capable of doing. Similarly, unexpected events, when viewed as surprises, can add flavor to your existence. By choosing to love life no matter what crosses your path, you can create an atmosphere of jubilance that is wonderfully infectious. A change in perspective is all it takes to change your world, but you must be willing to adopt an realistic, hopeful mind-set.
To make a conscious decision to be happy is not enough. "You must learn to observe life’s complexities through the eyes of a child seeing everything for the first time." You must furthermore divest yourself of preconceived notions of what is good and what is bad so that you can appreciate the rich insights concealed in each stage of your life’s journey. And you must strive to discover the dual joys of wanting what you have. As you gradually shift your perspective, your existence will be imbued with happiness and contentment that will remain with you forever.

GAR HO SAZA TOH KAM KAR.... :( :) :)

Saturday, September 24, 2011


Now this ain't any attempted poem, read it as a flowchart, without arrows. It flows top down and then iterates.

Curious Child

Gets a toy

Is curious about it

Toys with it

Is Fascinated

Is obsessed

Toys a bit more

Examines every dimension

Is obsessed all the more

Finally, has nothing more to explore

Leaves the toy

Discards it.

Watches as other little child comes closer, curious.


Lets him have it

Watches him have the same fun he had

Then some more, he watches unperturbed

But then...

The new child has new tricks

And the toy is doing them

The new child is obsessed

The old child wants the toy back

The new child is unaware

The old child cannot take it any longer

The new child resists

The old child snatches

Toy breaks

The new child cries

The old boy feels loss, does not cry

Back to square one.
P.S-i wrote something else.. my manager said it after reading it, i can give out a bit more than one poem in it :) so here we are! :) :)

"Love life. Be grateful for it always. And show your gratitude by not shying away from its challenges. Always try to live a little bit beyond your capacities - and you'll find your capacities are greater than you ever dreamed."
- Anonymous

I read this for self-motivation. Everyone of us, once in awhile, needs to motivate ourselves. Life nowadays is always full of challenges. Wherever we are, in big cities or small towns, we do feel the same rat race life that gives us so much stress. We have to be strong enough to cope with it or else it will destroy us.

Sometimes, I really feel down. But I stop for awhile and ask myself, "What's worth for me to dwell in this mood? Sooner or later it will kill me!" I don't want it to have a control over me because it can turn out disastrous. I have to get rid of it and get moving. And getting rid of such mood is finding solutions to overcome it before it gets worse.

I am feeling sad right now. Hence, come up with these little scribbles. I don't want sadness to rule me.  The above quote is kind of giving me hope and there are many things to discover. I have to help myself though it is hard to face the challenges. Challenges will remain if I don't take any action to solve them.

I regard this as one of life's challenges. Life is so unpredictable with its ups and downs. The ups can be soaring sky high and the downs, might be like falling into a deep pit enveloped in darkness and helpless to find the way out.

I believe self-determination is significant in overcoming whatever comes my way.

People pull you down to your knees. They make you feel tarnished. Unclean.
They do not give you even what you’d call a ray of Hope.
They reprimand you. Scold you. Humiliate you, till you sink so low that it would be an impossibility to rise up again.
They tell you that you can never be clean again. That you can never get back your sense of honor and Izzath again.
They tell you that you are worth nothing. That you have nothing more to live for. That you are the worst of creations possible.
Your heart becomes heavy with the pain of having faltered. You want to change, but you are submerged in humiliation and a loss of honor.
You want to tell them that, people slip. That they fall down at times, because nobody is perfect.
You wish to cry, to go back, to rip your heart out and say “Give me one more chance!”
And what makes you think that people will give you that chance?
They won’t.
And you don’t need them to give it to you.
The only One you need to prove yourself to, is to Your Lord. Who created you. Who gave you life. Who watches you day and night.
The only hope we can ever have is in the remembrance of Our Creator.
He is the Oft-Forgiving. The Most Merciful.
He is the One Who loves to Pardon.
He is the One who accepts sincere Repentance.
He loves it when his slaves return to him in a state of humility and in repentance. And He will forgive them if they are sincere. Even if their sins are as high as the sky. Even if their sins are like the foam of the sea.
As long as tears of repentance still flow from their eyes.
The ones who are doomed are only the most wretched of creations.
For those who even have a tiny sense of regret and whose hearts bleed thinking of the wrongs committed against themselves, and want to change for the better, there is still infinite hope.
The fall would bring you closer to Allah, because you constantly think about it, feel bad about it, and you end up bowing down in utmost submission, crying and asking for Pardon.
And who loves to Pardon, other that Allah, the Most High?
“ Allahumma Innaka Afww’un, Tuhibbul Afw’ Fa’fwu Anni”
“O Allah, You are the Pardoner, and you Love to Pardon, so Pardon me.”

Pardoning means to erase off the sin, to remove it from our record, like it never was there.
Forgiveness is to conceal or hide the sin, even though it will appear in our records.
Once a man came to the mosque of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) complaining about his sins. The man was so overcome and saddened by his sins that the Prophet (p.b.u.h) said to him, “Say this: “O God, Your forgiveness is greater than my sins, and my hope in Your Mercy is greater to me than my (evil) actions.”
The man said this and the Prophet said to him, “Say it again.” The man repeated it. Then the Prophet (p.b.u.h) said to him, “Arise, for God has forgiven you.”
What more Hope do we need?
When people drag you down, know that Your Lord wishes to purify you. He loves His creation and His Mercy encompasses everything.
Arise. Have hope. Repent. Weep and flow your tears. Beg for His Mercy and Pardon.
He will Pardon you.

Vander Hoven, a psychologist from Netherlands, announced his new discovery about the effect of reading the Qur'aan and repeating the word ALLAH both on patients and on normal persons. The Dutch professor confirms his discovery with studies and research applied on many patients over a period of three years.
Some of his patients were non-Muslims, others do not speak Arabic and were trained to pronounce the word " ALLAH " clearly; the result was great, particularly on those who suffer from dejection and tension. Al Watan, a Saudi daily reported that the psychologist was quoted to say that Muslims who can read Arabic and who read the Quran regularly could protect themselves from psychological diseases.
The psychologist explained how each letter in the word "ALLAH" affects healing of psychological diseases. He pointed out in his research that pronouncing the first letter in the word "ALLAH" which is the letter ( A ), released from the respiratory system, controls breathing. He added that pronouncing the velar consonant ( L) in the Arabic way, with the tongue touching slightly the upper part of the jaw producing a short pause and then repeating the same pause constantly, relaxes the aspiration.
Also, pronouncing the last letter which is the letter (H) makes a contact between the lungs and the heart and in turn this contact controls the heartbeat. What is exciting in the study is that this psychologist is a non-Muslim, but interested in Islamic sciences and searching for the secrets of the HolyQuran Allah, The Great and Glorious, says, We will show them Our signs in the universe and in their ownselves, until it becomes manifest to (remember me in ur Dua).
ALLAHU AKBAR Allah is great Allah keeps me going day and night. Without Allah , I am no one. But with Allah , I can do everything. Allah is my strength." This is a simple test. If you love Allahand you are not ashamed of all the great things that he has done for you, send this to everyone you know, May Allah help u to succeed...Ameen
During the next 60 seconds, stop whatever you are doing, and take this opportunity. (Literally it is only 1 minute) All you have to do is the following: You simply say "A prayer" for the person that sent you this message.
Allah said, "If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you."

"God has endeared faith to you and adorned it in your hearts." ~ [Qura'n 49:7]

"Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love." ~ Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein not often cited for ideas outside the realm of science. But I recently came across an insightful statement formulated by him (the quotation above) that sparked a synapse some where in my mind about the relationship between religion and love.
If the laws of gravity do not apply to love, that is, if human beings are not attracted by mere earthbound love, then I am left with two questions: First, if it's not love that brings two people together, than what does? Second, if love alone, or at least the popular conception of it, does not attract two individuals, than what does love pair-up with to bring human beings into each other's intimate spheres? So the questions can be distilled to a single inquiry: How do people fall in love? Contrary to popular belief and Hollywood, falling in love does not happen spontaneously like a raging forest fire or something. How do I speak with such certainty when trashing the notion of romanticized love you say? Well, isn't it apparent? Look around you! When walking down the road, do you see people randomly bursting into passionate paroxysms? I mean, it's not like your taking the subway one day and you engage the person next to you just like that. It takes time to develop real love.
So what does taking time mean anyway? Well, it means that usually your feeling of deep love will not present itself the moment you first meet someone. No. Love needs to be given a chance to be cultivated and grown by an extended relationship, which is where marriage comes in as an active mechanism that allows such a seedling to germinate and eventually grow tall.
The truth of the matter is that something else is required to get love going. Like an engine or a chemical reaction, some kind of catalyst is needed to jump start the lifelong development that love requires. What is this enigmatic catalyst? Well, let's turn to the seventh verse of the forty-ninth surah of the Qur'an :-)
From this verse and many similar ayahs in the Qur'an, we learn that Allah has integrated faith into our very hearts. Many people would interpret the idea of faith being "adorned" in our hearts as a kind of symbolic statement, but the fact of the matter is that our hearts are physically tuned to reverberate to the sounds of faith, the feeling of pure wholesomeness that belief brings with it. Establishing a loving relationship not only requires visceral attraction (an earthly desire), but also a huge input of faith, which answers our opening questions.
Perhaps this is too simplistic of an answer for you? Let's get a bit empirical, shall we? From my observation, as well as many other Muslims, it seems as though there is a huge contrast in marriage patterns between modern-day Muslims (you and I) and the early Muslims (570 CE / 632 H). I often find myself thinking, perhaps a little optimistically, of how relatively easy marriage was accomplished in early Muslim communities (think Madinah and afterwards Makkah). Men and women were often wedded at relatively young ages and decisions of whether to marry or not were likewise relatively brief and punctual.
For example, it wasn't really that long after Ali R.A proposed to marry Fatimah that marital requirements were met and arrangements were finalized. And mind you, these weren't cold, hard arrangements met with corporate speed, nor were they swooning over one another in a fashion akin to Romeo and Juliet. No, this man and this woman made a mutual decision to love each other and that is a fact. They decided to put hands and hearts together in this earth and plant a seed there and nurture it to something large and beautiful, and that something bloomed into a blossom of love and tenderness into eternity.
And so from our more empirical discourse, we can start to make connections. We can begin to understand Einstein's statement about love not being contained by worldly constriction or law (gravity). No. Love is a heavenly attribute, a gift that God has saturated our hearts with. And mingling with love in the core of our hearts is faith. So what is faith but love, and what is love but faith. They both originate from the same pulsing locus, that miraculous muscle, for lack of a more transcending word, that sets into motion our bodies and our senses. They are one expression, even as their Originator is One.
And so we must ask ourselves the crucial question: How do we fall into real love? How do you find that true inamorata, if you are a Muslimah, or inamorata if you are a Muslim, in the modern, urban, and lonely landscape that you live in? Well, keep on looking sugar 'cause you ain't gonna find nobody if you keep looking for the rest of your allotted time in life.
You cannot float through life with a belief that one day your one true love will come waltzing through your bedroom door. No. On the contrary, if you want to love someone, then you have to make that decision to defy mere dunya-related gravity. You have to grasp the fact that because faith and love are, so to say, a package deal, when you make an authentic decision to love someone, you are making a leap of faith.

                      as one of my favourite hadeeth goes...
"Love is neither disapproved by Religion, nor prohibited by Law; for every heart is in God’s hands..." -Imam Ibn Hazm

I can hear the thunder
I can see the rain pour
The cracks of lightning brighten the sky
Mother nature contributes to this cry.

The twilight seems so pretty
But empty

Like an abyss sucking all light through it
Turning into a dimwit.
Turning away from the starting point
Emotions breaking from their joints
It all begins again
When the weather starts to rain.
Sitting and self-analyzing
Self confidence justifying
Trusting was an issue
It just made more use of tissue.
But trust is placed where its supposed to
We made the mess we've gotten into
Hatred wont happen till mistakes takes place
It did happen... that's why everything falls out of place.
And the reason wasn't unjustifiable
Everything has its variables
Everything happens for a reason
And the reason is clear this season.
Clear cut
Like glass cutting through the beating heart
It just seem so yesterday when summer clashes with winter
But these days, better is the weather.
Summer return to summer
And autumn before winter
Its all back to the beginning
No teeth grinding and clashing.
Its been 3 months long
3 months of autumn prolong
Winter is back
And the atmosphere is black.
And silence fills the air
The voices of despair
Tears falling into the pail
Hoping everything would go well.
Gone were the days when chances
Makes people fall into dances
If we didn't take the opportunity
There wouldn't be any unity.
So it all comes down to this
Waiting or giving chances?
And the answer is clear without any gist's
When a new chapter begins.
