Happiness is one dimensional...



"Being Happy" is one dimensional. It is such a state of mind and body that a person fails to think and imagine things beyond the obvious and oblivious. In-fact - being happy - does not make a complete personality...the feeling lacks the poison, needed to live life.
If you have never missed something or someone - you have not learnt to survive when you fall. If you have not had the taste of blood when you fell from the horse while fighting a battle - you will never understand the sweet taste of success.

"Being sad" is 2 dimensional - not only you have to pretend to all and sundry that you are happy but also you have to maintain the poison of sadness inside to make sure you are in tune to be what you have always wanted...

You can only learn one thing when you are victorious - how to win! - but when you are defeated you learn so many things...to cope up with the frustration...to make sure you are not haunted by nightmares of a dream gone awry...Oh Boy! too many skeletons to fight with...but to overcome all this is what makes you feeling nice...

Remember - The phoenix must burn to emerge...

Remembering Tej...

You don't normally think of writing this for a friend who was just 31 years old.
Friend who you have just met.
I dont want any of you, reading this, to experience this ever again.

Tejendra Gwala, or Tej, as we lovingly called him, a 6ft 2 inches man was still a boy at heart. Full of dreams, full of youth and full of  dare to be different from everyone out there.



Few things -

1. He knew how to make you comfortable - I spent innumerable evenings with him - where he would just go and start speaking with strangers - whether t was a gym, dhaba or a 5 star restaurant

2. He knew his values - I was just 1 year younger than I was but he respected me and Aakriti (my wife) as his real brother and Bhabhi. There were dozens of time, when he would just call and say - I want "Ghar ka khana" and lets go for a drive.
