Love Takes Hostages !

I read this somewhere...

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain..”



Ii felt its a bit incomplete. The end. If love is so sagacious, why does everyone fall in it? Why is it that it consumes everyone? It is that beautiful feeling that dissipate everywhere. And those who say that they have never been in love, they have been in it the deepest. Just they support the first para within them.


That real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain stands nowhere in front of the-ever-so-magnanimous-feeling !


Love is not a disease, it is a cure to many. When you find that one person, to whom you can give in and give upon everything, world seems beautiful. Yes, you might hear violin playing and birds chirping and everything musical around you. You may see the dullest of roads be flooded with roses and smallest of drops as ocean. So? Is that bad? NOPE !



Why not fall in love just because you are afraid of getting hurt? It says you give them a piece of you. Why forget you get a piece too. Memories worth lifetime. Don't be afraid to get hurt. Lucky are the ones who don't but even if you do, you can be sure that someone is still out there for you. You just made a wrong choice. Learn from it and do good next. You, one day, will surely find 'THE PERFECT ONE'!


Fall in love, make someone fall in love with you. Because trust me, it is a beautiful feeling :)

And after all, it's SPRIHA :D


Everyday i come across people who ask me the meaning of my name. And when i say everyday, i really mean EVERYDAY !!

Usually it starts with: Hello beta, what's your name? And i have to go like: Namaste Uncle, myself Spriha :)
And what follows is what i hate the most!!
Supriya ? Priya ?
And the worst i got was: Suprabha ?
I know i got a different name, but try and listen to me when i pronounce it !!
And finally after all the efforts when they are able to speak it correctly, the most obvious question is asked!
WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

Spriha means DESIRE ! Its a Sanskrit word derived from 'Spri' dhatu which means to wish for something. Desire is a sense of longing for an object, a person or an event. Its hoping for an outcome. While Desires are often classified as emotions by laypersons, it is totally different. Emotions are a person's state of mind whereas Desire is a wanting in your heart !
Now you know where my blog get its name from !! ;)

Now usually one question is followed by another. What do you desire ?
I always have different answers. When i was a kid, my mother told me to answer that i want to become a doctor when anybody asks me the same. As i grew up, the answers changed into being successful, Lamborghini Gallardo and once i even said that i want to marry Abhishek Bachchan !! (*i know its not possible now but we still got Ranbir Kapoor on the list :D)

But today, when the same question was asked, my answer was totally different. For a second i had to think what i have to say, since the person was a gentleman who asked. And then the words just came out my mouth. "I want to fulfill all my desires." There are so many of them that i actually want to stop wishing and making some of them real!

To begin with, i always wanted to plant a tree. To dig that ground, plant a seed and see it grow. I know i am a bit late, but finally i did something which satisfy me for the day. I just hope i am able to see it fruit.
To be honest, i might not like it when people question me so much regarding my name, but somewhere inside it makes me smile. It makes me feel special. I know i got a different name, and this makes me different as a person too. So  from today on, i.e. 1 July 2012, i will try and fulfill all that i ever wanted.

Let the countdown begin...



For all you out there, DESIRE... DESIRE more and more...!!
