A Birthday Thank You Note :)

FB Cover

 

Technically…this birthday of mine was supposed to be lousy for several reasons…like i completed 33 revolutions around Sun…ideally in India..33 and still Single???..such folks are considered as dangerous and as waste as a expired medicine…more than the main entities..the family members are tortured by so called relatives and society by saying”Are you not ashamed that you didnt get the daughter of your house married till now”…

My longtime crush/es is/are getting married this year…yeah Ranbir Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor are getting married…ayyo..i can no more claim they are mine..

Like a normal 30 plus person..now that i have reached decent levels in career..i am in more search of meaning of life …more restless..more confused and more thoughtful…

However..the good news is am blessed with lively lovely all of you…my family..treats me respectfully and supports my choices…they dont treat me as expired medicine…they made me competent enough to live the World independently…and all of you my friends…you help me by your motivating words..you help me reminding my positive qualities when i am in doubt about myself..
Yeah..regarding my crushes…yeah..world is not bankrupt of handsome men…time to get new crush ;)
Fortunately or unfortunately…i still have this child like enthusiam for life..i want to learn soo many things..i want to excel in different arts..i want to explore different countries, cultures..i want to bring tiny and good difference in somany people lives..and one life is soo short ..but i dont want to waste anymore minute crying and cribbing about useless things…
This birthday…Had a good time at home with my parents..
I just want to share one note to all of you here…dont be ashamed because your life is not normal like as expected by society…while continuing to enhance yourself.. respect the present you..respect the people and choices you have..live life with joy and hope..do your best effort in every aspect..live your life to fullest as per your choices..what if you are not in good career today..you will get tomm or thereafter..but for today respect in which job you are…what if you dont have partner..respect the other people who you have in your life…be expressive…tell the lovedones in your life how important they are for you..dont feel ashamed expressing what you think….be fearless..there is no fun in living life like a coward….its your own life..not your neighbours life..some people will rate you..hate you..love you…judge you..but its your life..dont care ..as long as you are not hurting and killing others by your choices…value your health..never take your health for granted…and never miss the chance of learning…learning keeps a person young..thats the ultimate cosmetic one can ever buy in market.

Thanks for being part of my life…thanks for your birthday messages…i felt like a celebrity…hope you people continue blessing me …
Love you all,
Prasanna Rayaprolu

Has been really quite long time that I wrote about music. After watching the brand new romantic movie of Maniratnam, the topic for this  299th Blog Post of mine…got inspired from the Maniratnam movie …in Maniratnam’s movie he depicts very well the love in the times of good times and the tough times…and hence this new post of mine….
Do check the songs and do share with me ,your favorite songs on this topic too :)

1)Khamaj (Mora Saiyaan) By Fuzon – Shafqat Amanat Ali :

Mora saiyaan mo se bole na…
Main laakh jatan kar haari…
Laakh jatan kar haar rahi…
Mora saiyaan mo se bole na…

Pyaar tumhe kitna karte hai
Tum ye samajh nahi paaoge…
Jab hum na honge to peeharwa…
Bolo kya tab aaoge?

2) Chaandaniya (2 States):

Tujh bin suraj mein aag nahi re
Tujh bin koyal mein raag nahi re
Chaandaniya to barse
Phir kyun mere haath andhere lagde ne

Haa tujh bin phaagun mein phaag nahi re
Haa tujh bin jaage bhi jaag nahi re
Tere bina.. o mahiya
Din dariya, rain jazeere lagde ne
Adhoori adhoori adhoori kahaani, adhoora alvida
Yunhi yunhi raina jaaye adhoore sadaa
Adhoori adhoori adhoori kahaani, adhoora alvida
Yunhi yunhi raina jaaye adhoore sadaa

O Chaandaniya to barse
Phir kyun mere haath andhere lagde ne
Kedi teri naraazgi
Gal sun le raaz ki
Jism ye kya hai, khokhli seepi
Rooh da moti hai tu
Garaz ho jitni teri
Badle mein jindadi meri
Mere saare bikhre suron se geet piroti hai tu
O mahiya.. tere sitam, tere karam
Dono lutere lagde ne

3)Chadariya Jheeni re Jheeni ( Judaai) :

Ranjhan dhoondhan main chaleya
Ranjhan mileya naa ye…
Jigraan vichon agan laga ke Rabba
Laqeeran vich likh di judaai

Kho gaya, gum ho gaya
Waqt se churaya tha jo
Apna banaya tha..
Ho tera, woh mera
Saath nibhaaya tha jo
Apna banaya tha..

Chadariya jheeni re jheeni
Chadariya jheeni re jheeni
Aankhein bheeni ye bheeni ye bheeni
Yaadein jheeni re jheeni re jheeni (x2)

Aisa bhi kya milna, saath hoke tanha
Aisi kyun sazaa humne hai paayi, Ranjhana ve
Phir se mujhe jeena, tujhpe hai marna
Phir se dil ne di hai ye duhaai, Saajnaa ve
Laqeeron pe likh di kyun judaai..

4)Tere bina  ( Guru):

Dum Dara Dum Dara Mast Mast
Dara Dum Dara Dum Dara Mast Mast
Dara Dum Dara Dum Dum
Oh Humdum Bin Tere Kya Jeena
Dum Dara Dum Dara Mast Mast
Dara Dum Dara Dum Dara Mast Mast
Dara Dum Dara Dum Dum
Oh Humdum Bin Tere Kya Jeena

5) Love Aaj Kal – Yeh Dooriyan

Yeh Dooriyan
Yeh Dooriyan
Yeh Dooriyan

In Raahon Ki Dooriyan
Nigahon Ki Dooriyan
Hum Rahon Ki Dooriyan
Fanah Ho Sabhi Dooriyan

Kyun Koi Paas Hai
Door Hai Kyun Koi
Jaane Na Koi Yahan Pe

Aa Raha Paas Ya Door Mein Ja Raha
Janu Na Mein Hoon Kahan Pe

6) AAHATEIN – Ek Main Aur Ekk tu

Chhoti-chhoti baatein yunhi aate-jaate
Yaadein sehlaake jaati hai
Raaton ko sirhaane baasi muskaane
Mujhko sula ke jaati hai
Milna nahin hai mumkin itna bataaun lekin
Hum phir mile kyun hain
Tujhko bula naa paaun
Tujhko bhula naa paaun
Yeh silsile kyun hain
Sab kuch wahi hai, par kuchh kami hai
Teri aahatein nahin hai
Sab kuch wahi hai, par kuchh kami hai
Teri Aahatein nahin hai.. nahin hai

Maine nahin jaana, tune nahin jaana
Jaane anjaane jo huaa
Kuchh tto hua jo mujh ko hua naa
Tujhko magar kyun hua

Ghalti nahin hai teri
Ghalti nahin hai meri
Phir bhi gile kyun hain
Tujhko bulaa na paaun
Tujhko bhula na paaun
Yeh silsile kyun hain
Sab kuch wahi hai [wahi hai]
Par kuch kami hai [kami hai]
Teri aahatein nahin hai

Sab kuch wahi hai, par kuch kami hai
Teri aahatein nahin hai, nahin hai hai

Teri aahatein nahin hai aahatein nahin hai
Teri aahatein nahin hai
Ohh..
Teri aahatein nahin hai, aahatein nahin hai
Teri aahatein nahin hai

Kyun… kyun nahin hai

7) Main Tenu Samjhawan Ki – Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania
Nahi jeena tere baaju
Nahi jeena, nahi jeena
Nahi jeena tere baaju
Nahi jeena, nahi jeena (x2)
(tere baaju: without you)

Main tenu samjhawan ki
Na tere bina lagda jee
Main tenu samjhawan ki
Na tere bina lagda jee
Tu ki jaane pyaar mera
Main karoon intezar tera
Tu dil tui-yon jaan meri

8) DHAK DHUK Song – English Vinglish

Piya bin dil lage na ek pal ko man ma lage thes
Kaise jaaun main paraye des
Piya mora nithura
Piya na samjhe man ka ye sandes
Kaise jaaun main paraye des

Jiyara jiyara jiyara dhak dhuk hoye
Jiyara dhak dhuk hoye
Hoye haaye haaye..
Khamkha khamkha khamakha dhak dhuk hoye
Jiyara dhak dhuk hoye
Haaye hoye haaye
Piya bin dil lage na ek pal ko man ma lage thes
Kaise jaaun main paraye des

Ho ye din raatein
Teekhi teri baatein
Kya kare jo yaad aaye re
Tere taane-vaane, chhoone ke bahane
Dil ko bada sataaye re
Kyon na hume roke eko baar toke
Ke tera zikr jab bhi aaye
Thodi fikr chhu ke jaaye haaye hoye haaye
Jiyara Jiyara Jiyara dhak dhuk hoye
Jiyara dhak dhuk haaye hoye haaye
La la la….
Kaise jaaun mai paraye des

9)Manchala (hasee toh phasee)
Kabhi gardishon ka maara
Kabhi khwahishon se haara
Roothe chand, kaahe chakor
Zara sa bhi samjhaute se
Ye parhez rakhta hai kyu
Maane na kabhi koi zor
Duniya jahan ki bandisho ki,
Ye kahan parwah kare jab,
Kheenche teri dor, kheenche teri dor
Manchala, manchala teri ore
Manchala, manchala teri ore
Khamoshiyon ki sooraton mein,
Dhoondhe tera shor, dhoondhe tera shor
Manchala, manchala teri ore
Manchala, manchala teri ore

10)Mileya Mileya ( Happy Ending)

Kehte hain har ek dil mein chhupa
kahin pyaar hai, pyaar hai
Bas pehchaane jo koi

Na jaane kis pal kahaan kaise
khhota qarar hai, qarar hai
Naina lag jaaye jo kahin
Nazdikiyon ka pata..
Hai dooriyan de gayi

Mileya mileya mujhe.. par meinu jaaneya nahin
Mileya mileya mujhe.. par meri suneya nahin
Mileya mileya mujhe.. par meinu jaaneya nahin
Je main janeya janeya tujhe
phir te main bhuleya sabhi

11)Naina Nu Pata Hai Lyrics from Khoobsurat:

Naina nu pata hai
Naina di khata hai
Saanu kis gal di phir
Mildi sazaa hai

Neend ud jaave, chain chhad jaave
Ishq di faqeeri jad lag jaave
Neend ud jaave, chain chhad jaave
Ishq di faqeeri jad lag jaave

Ae mann karda ae thagi thoriya
Ae mann karda ae seena zoriyan
Aine sikh laiyan dil diyan choriyan
Ae mann diyan ne kamzoriyan

Aa…

Mann mann ki sunta jaaye
Sunta nahin mann waalon ki
Mann hi mann mein banaye
Duniya ek khayaalon ki..

Paas koi aave, door koi jaave
Hota hai kyun ye, koi samjhaave

Neend ud jaave, chain chhad jaave
Ishq di faqeeri jad lag jaave

Ae mann karda ae thagi thoriya
Ae mann karda ae seena zoriyan
Aine sikh laiyan dil diyan choriyan
Ae mann diyan ne kamzoriyan

12)Christina Perri – A Thousand Years

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I’m afraid
To fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt
Suddenly goes away somehow

One step closer

I have died every day
waiting for you
Darlin’ don’t be afraid
I have loved you for a
Thousand years
I’ll love you for a
Thousand more

Time stands still
beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything
Take away
What’s standing in front of me
Every breath,
Every hour has come to this

One step closer
I have died every day
Waiting for you
Darlin’ don’t be afraid
I have loved you for a
Thousand years
I’ll love you for a
Thousand more

And all along I believed
I would find you
Time has brought
Your heart to me
I have loved you for a
Thousand years
I’ll love you for a
Thousand more

One step closer
One step closer
I have died every day
Waiting for you
Darlin’ don’t be afraid,
I have loved you for a
Thousand years
I’ll love you for a
Thousand more

And all along I believed
I would find you
Time has brought
Your heart to me
I have loved you for a
Thousand years
I’ll love you for a
Thousand more

13)how can i not love you (joy enriquez):

Cannot touch, cannot hold
Cannot be together
Cannot love, cannot kiss
Cannot have each other
Must be strong and we must let go
Cannot say what our hearts must know

How can I not love you?
What do I tell my heart?
When do I not want you here in my arms?
How does one walks away from all of the memories?
How do I not miss you when you are gone?

Cannot dream
Cannot share sweet and tender moments
Cannot feel how we feel
Must pretend it’s over
Must be brave and we must go on
Must not say what we’ve known all along

How can I not love you?
What do I tell my heart?
When do I not want you here in my arms?
How does one waltz away from all of the memories?
How do I not miss you when you are gone?
How can I not love you?

Must be brave
And we must be strong
Cannot say what we’ve known all along

How can I not love you?
What do I tell my heart?
When do I not want you here in my arms?
How does one waltz away from all of the memories?
How do I not miss you when you are gone?
How can I not love you when you are gone ?

14)Only time (Sweet November):

Who can say where the road goes
Where the day flows, only time
And who can say if your love grows
As your heart chose, only time

Who can say why your heart sighs
As your love flies, only time
And who can say why your heart cries
When your love lies, only time

Who can say when the roads meet
That love might be in your heart
And who can say when the day sleeps
If the night keeps all your heart
Night keeps all your heart

Who can say if your love grows
As your heart chose
– Only time
And who can say where the road goes
Where the day flows, only time

Who knows? Only time

15)Calvin Harris “I Need Your Love” 

I need your love
I need your time
When everything’s wrong
You make it right
I come alive
I need to be free with you tonight
I need your love

All the years
All the times
You have never been to blame
And now my eyes are open
And now my heart is closing
And all the tears
All the lies
All the waste
I’ve been trying to make it change
And now my eyes are open

I need your love
I need your time

Hope you like the collection of these songs…dont forget sharing your favorite songs too in the comments.

Have a lovely week ahead :)

Loads of Love,

One More New Page In Journey Of My Life

1

For a person like me who keeps on talking all the times like a chatter box and who keeps on writing a lot like a printing press..it is really surprising that today I dont have words to express what exactly is going on in my mind. Yay..Yay….I am moving to a new city..into a new company..into a brand new role :)

I just cant stop tears rolling through my eyes while writing this post. May be I am too emotional however cannot stop thanking the Good God, lovely Parents, adorable siblings, esteemed mentors and crazy Friends who showed confidence in me in all the tough times…

I cannot stop thinking and thanking all the hard times and crazy people who gave me tough time. Because of those, I learnt a lot and I became a better me.

In the times when I felt my dreams are killed, God sent to me his people in the form of mentors and helped me to have faith in me and helped me to reach my dreams….just cannot stop thanking all these wonderful people.

Special thanks to Martin, Amit, Karan, Arman and Darshika.

All I can say is “Dare to Dream, Strive to Achieve. Never Let Anyone or Anything Kill the Spark in You”.

Loads of Love,

Prasanna Rayaprolu

 

Box Of Dreams…

That moment….
That moment after a terrible failure…
Its just after “turbulence”
In that silent moment after turbulence..
There is a choice to bury the leftovers of my “Box of dreams”…
Or build a brand new and improvised
“Box of dreams”…
Experience of Mind says”Enough is Enough…accept the failure and be happy with what you have”…
Mighty Heart says
“You bitch!!Is this your limit?
You said you are soo passionate about your goals from childhood…you are giving up so easily???Are you ready to look down yourself as a loser??
Sharpen your axe, tweak your skills try again with all your might…this time in new places with new energy…
But never let anyone or anything kill the spark in you”…
And I listened to my heart….and started building new box of dreams
Love,
Prasanna Rayaprolu
 

Some Random Thoughts On Suffering, Hope, Joy, Success…..

Image Courtesy Google

Image Courtesy Google

There is no specific goal of this post, however, I thought I should write all my thoughts here as it makes me feel light.

Life is like a roller coaster ride from the past 10 years. There are so many times I stumbled down, every time I stumbled down I shamelessly started my journey again.

Yes, there were so many times I thought I cannot fight any more or cannot dream again about Life again. However with the help of family members, cousins, friends and colleagues I started my journey again and again.

Like any other person, My situations were soo unique, I used to be mum about those situations, I did not share my issues with any one knowing that anyone would not understand them. I was shy or scared to share my issues and sometimes I was so headstrong I did not bother to share. During my graduation days, when girls of my age were busy with their usual stuff of fun, regular college, movies, beauty, fashion, crush, love and all…..I was in my different world of goals. I was in sadness that I did’nt achieve my childhood dream of doing Mechanical Engineering. That pain and suffering of NOT achieving our long planned goal , rather then goal of life is unexplainable. That feeling of becoming directly a ZERO in graduation days from a HERO status of School days is dangerous and tough to recover.

Life gave me somany chances, I could not study Mechanical Engineering but I could study somany other useful stuff  and subsequently I have various  Masters degrees in Applied Electronics, Planning and Project Management and Total Quality Management.

Job….. I did have an awesome start as a Physics Lecturer in College. Had awesome time of my life teaching Physics to various lively students. The joy of helping students understand the beauty of the subject is unfathomable. I used to love each and every class of mine . However had to move into another job for better assignments. I did promise myself that I will return to teaching after my 50 years of age.

I did have awesome time as Content Technical Writer, Market Researcher, Instructional Designer in my next job. I did learn a lot and got chance to explore my creativity(which I thought I never had). The passion for “Project Management” got ignited in me when I was working on several interesting projects here. I decided ..one day I should be a Project Manager. Learnt so much through that job particularly through my lady boss who is persistent and assertive. However, This phase taught me somany tough lessons, there were times when my ideas were ridiculed, I was made fun of my strategies, was cornered for being different and dealing this phase helped me understand that in life it is not always necessary to get a “Yes” from everyone, if you believe in yourself you need to move ahead with confidence :)

Then, I moved into Knowledge Management in a prestigious company and worked with prestigious clients…this job helped me explore my learning and development, Knowledge Management skills to fullest extent and got ample opportunities to learn and implement Project Management in Knowledge Management. This was a phase where personal life and personal life were with lots of action. This was the phase where I did lot of University study in Project Management.  Learnt a lot from several colleagues and Managers….from some I learnt how to be and from some I learnt how not to be…with great power comes great responsibility and lots of stupid issues…trusting people is not a easy job…..and yeah forgiveness is the biggest medicine against any stupidity…somehow with the help of right people I could deal the stuff :)

I moved to my new job in a new place. Everyone warned me that “Lady!!! Dont move to that place of India….there the people exploit the folks”. I brushed aside all these and moved to this place, as I truly believe that entire world is equally safe and equally unsafe. Had a good opportunity to work on several Knowledge Management Projects. Have been working with wonderful team and one main thing i learnt here is  that sharing your dreams and goals is good. If you share your dreams and goals, some or the other person will guide you, help you to reach your goals. And am blessed to have somany Mentors who are guiding me to my goal of Project Management.

I am few steps away in reaching my goal of working in Project Management completely, looking forward eagerly to start my new assignments :)

This post is not to boast about my achievements ..this post is not a platform to cry about my issues…I shared this post with a hope atleast one or the other person reads this and will not stop underestimating the power one own self. Hoping that this short story of mine will help one or the other person somewhere in the world in having “hope” , “faith” “, “belief” in one own self :)

Here is a beautiful song :

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77kLWFG4wYA

Dhoondhe har ik saans mein
Dubkiyon ke Baad mein
har Bhanwar ke Paas. kinare..


(We) have searched in every breath
after having a dip (in water),
Near every storm..
shores.

Beh rahe jo saath mein
jo humare khaas The
kar gaye apni Baat kinare..

The ones that are flowing with us,
The ones that were special for us,
The shores, said what they had to.

gar maajhi saare saath mein gair ho Bhi jaayein
To khud hi to Patwaar Ban
Paar honge hum

Even if all the boatmen together become strangers to us
(that is, even if everyone turns against us)
Then we will become oars ourselves
and cross (the sea) on our own..

jo Chhoti si har ik neher saagar Ban Bhi jaaye
koi Tinka Le ke haath mein dhoondh Lenge hum
kinaare. kinaare. kinare.

Even if every small canal turns into a sea
We’ll take a straw in our hands and find
shores.

khud hi To hain hum. Kinaare.
kaise honge kam. Kinaare
hain jahaan hain hum. Kinare.
khud hi To hain hum. Kinare.

We ourselves are. shores.
Then how can there be less shores.
Wherever we are, there are shores.
We ourselves are Shores.

auron se kya khud hi se
Poochh Lenge raahein
Yahin kahin maujon mein hi
Dhoondh Lenge hum

Why others, we’ll ask ourselves only
about the path to follow
We’ll find it here somewhere
in the waves only..

Boondon se hi to hain bani
Baandh Lenge Leherein
Pairon Tale jo Bhi mile
Maan Lenge hum, Kinaare.

They’re made of water only,
we’ll tie the waves..
Whatever comes under our feet,
we’ll believe they are – Shores.

Visit To Gurdwara Bangla Sahib, Delhi

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My religious practices are always interesting and elusive to others. A Hindu Brahmin, who studied in Christian Missionary , who worked in Muslim Minority College and who has Sikh Friends will obviously have interesting perception of  God and religions. I love visiting temples, churches, Dargah and Gurudwara.

Me and My Solitude does wonders….visited Gurdwara Bangla Sahib for the first time and its a serene experience.

Gurdwara Bangla Sahib is the most prominent Sikh gurdwara, or Sikh house of worship, in Delhi, known for its association with the eighth Sikh Guru, Guru Har Krishan, and the pond inside its complex, known as the “Sarovar”, whose water is considered holy by Sikhs and is known as “Amrit”. It was first built as a small temple by Sikh General, Sardar Bhagel Singh in 1783, who supervised the construction of nine Sikh shrines in Delhi in the same year, during the reign of Mughal Emperor, Shah Alam II.

It is situated near Connaught Place, New Delhi and is instantly recognizable by its stunning golden dome and tall flagpole, Nishan Sahib. To know more about this wonderful place please check this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gurudwara_Bangla_Sahib

Gurdwara Bangla Sahib, Delhi 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 13 14 18

Dont miss visiting this Gurdwara when you visit Delhi next time :)

Cheers,

Prasanna Rayaprolu
