1) Closer ft.Halsey: The lyrics and the music make this song simply amazing.
This is still top in my favorite list this season.

We ain’t ever getting older
We ain’t ever getting older
We ain’t ever getting older
You look as good as the day I met you
I forget just why I left you,
I was insane

2) Maroon 5’s Don’t Wanna Know : How beautiful the lyrics are:

Do you think of me? Of what we used to be?
Is it better now that I’m not around?
My friends are actin’ strange, they don’t bring up your name
Are you happy now?
Are you happy now?
I don’t wanna know, know, know, know

3) Mehram Kahaani 2:

Mujhe kuch mat de,
Bas rakh le mera nazrana,
Bin sharton ke,
Haan tujhse mera yaarana,

Mujhe mehram mehram mehram,
Mujhe mehram jaan le

4) 24k Magic Bruno Mars:
This is one different song of Bruno Mars, not the regular types of Bruno Mars, however this dance and music is amazing

Players, put yo’ pinky rings up to the moon
Girls, what y’all trying to do?
24 karat magic in the air
Head to toe so player
Uh, look out!

5) Hanikarak Bapu Dangal:
Bapu sehat ke liye..
Baapu sehat ke liye
Tu toh hanikarak hai

Hum pe thodi daya toh karo
Hum nanhe baalak hai

Discipline itna na
Re discipline itna
Khudkushi ke laayak hai

Baapu sehat ke liye
Tu toh haanikaarak hai

6) Oye Meghamla Majnu

Oye meghamlaa
Thelindhe naa chinni manase
Hey mila mila la
Minugurulaa maarindhi varase
Kannulaki ee rojilaa andhanga
Lokam kanipinchene nee vallaa

Chaala baagundhe nee ventunte
Yedho avuthundhe neethovunte

Sunday Visit To Keesaragutta Temple near Hyderabad

 

This Sunday, we had an awesome early morning drive to Keesaragutta temple today with Mom and Bro. Keesaragutta is a temple of Lord Shiva in the outskirts of Hyderabad.

Legend has it that Sri Rama installed the Siva lingam here to atone for the sin of killing Ravana, a Brahman. He selected this beautiful valley surrounded by hills and verdant greenery for the purpose and ordered Hanuman to bring a Sivlingam from Varanasi. Hanuman was late in arriving with the Siva lingam and as the auspicious hour was nearing, Lord Siva himself appeared before Sri Rama and presented a Sivilingam for installation. Hence the lingam in the temple is called Swayambhu Linga. It is also called Ramalingeswara as lord Sri Rama had installed the lingam.

Hanuman returned with 101 lingams for selection from Varanasi and felt aggrieved at not having his lingam installed. Hence he threw them all over the area. Even to this day several lingams are found scattered all over the place outside the temple.

To mollify Hanuman, Sri Rama ordained that precedence would be given to him for worship at the temple. He also said that the hillock where the lingam was installed would bear his name kesarigiri i.e., Hanuman, the son of Kesari. Over a period of time, it has colloquially transformed and is now known as Keesara and the hill as Keesaragutta. Ever since, the rituals follow the command of Sri Rama.(Content Courtesy: Wikipedia)

Do plan to visit the temple when you are in Hyderabad…the drive to the temple is good and don’t forget keeping a check on the monkeys near the temple. You get to buy several varieties of local seasonal fruits fresh from the farms near the temple and in the entire route to the temple.

Loads of Love,

Firstever Solo trip to a far destination : Trip to Matheran

Finally, mustering some more courage I planned to expand the range of my solo trips, today i went to a solo trip that too to Matheran. It was nail biting, suspenseful trip because the 70 percent of travel to this destination included the mountain terrains and curvy ghat roads. And while travelling i had second thoughts about traveling to this place in non monsoon time, however once i reached Matheran it was a different world.

Once I reached the destination, the real fun began, on Matheran the only modes of transport allowed are walk, Horse riding and rickshaw pulled by people. I opted for horse riding as i thought it was the best option. It was the first time that I sat on a horse and explored different places on the hill for couple of hours. And throughout the journey the constant friends were “Monkeys”. Having explored the places I could, i started back my journey to Pune with a determination that learning “Horse Ridiing” as one of my TO DO things in life. Afterall I alway boast I am a Czarina and what’s a Czarina without Horse Riding Skills 😉

Do plan your visit to Matheran when you are in Pune ( After Monsoons might be the best time..)

Loads of Love,

How long is “Forever” ?

​#Detachment #Warranty #Gaurantee 

Most of South Indians might have grown up listening to the “Bhajagovindam” written by Shri Adi Shankaracharya. In my childhood never understood it, in my college days read the translation and meaning of those Sanskrit verses. 

I used to NOT agree…with the below stanza then…

yaavatpavano nivasati dehe

taavatpRichchhati kushalaM gehe .

gatavati vaayau dehaapaaye

bhaaryaa bibhyati tasminkaaye .. 

Meaning : When one is alive, his family members enquire kindly about his welfare. But when the soul departs from the body, even his wife runs away in fear of the corpse.

I used to think Love of a spouse( or potential spouse) is something for eternity and why will a spouse runaway in fear. 

But I see so many others and even from my experiences as I grow older, I understand that there is nothing called “Forever”, Forever is an overrated term. Everything is valid only for the current moment ,  when it is visible and when it is useful. It doesn’t matter how strong the relation was, when it is gone, it is gone and you start with new.

It’s not just applicable for the romantic relationships, it is for every relation in life. It is with siblings, friends, colleagues, aquaintances and normal humans. 

Basically, we and our equations with fellow living beings don’t have “Life Long Guarantee”, we only have “Warranty” period for each relation and person. Once the warranty expires, we move on with new. 

Yes, during the “Warranty” period, we feel the product is of “Life Long Gaurantee”, but hell no. 

Basically, we humans disagree that we see fellow humans as warranty based products but that’s the reality. 

No one will wait for us when we are gone, they will cry for a while and move on. No one will wait and waste their time when we are useless. We too think we will die without some, but we don’t. We cry, crib and then MoveOn. That’s the interesting magic of life.

And that’s the law of nature, if we get stuck with old, we won’t progress. 

Driving the point home, having this sense that “Nothing is permanent, we are not permanent” and practising “Detachment from the people, acts, wealth” and then doing our Karma gives us better sense of everything. We won’t be proud when we have/ achieve something and we won’t get depressed when we fail/lose something.

Warm Regards,

Dear Zindagi 

​#RandomThoughtsOnLife

Dear Zindagi (Life),

Often People say…partner, kids, their needs keep any person achieve anything constructive in life…they say life has meaning only when you are married, have kids…..May be that’s the law of nature…to find suitable partner and move ahead…..may be they are right….but….Wondering what motivated these famous “Single” people achieve what they wanted to achieve till the end of their lives without getting demotivated by society, one’s own insecurities and fears…….Ratan Tata, Leonardo Da Vinci, Issac Newton, Joan of Arc, Florence Nightingale, Queen Elizabeth 1, Helen Keller, Rene Descartes….yes…these are successful single folks who worked hard mad, worked passionately towards their life goals in spite of being SINGLE. They are normal and such people exist and they are merry in their own World.
One thing for sure Single, Committed, Married Divorced, Widowed, Or whatever…. ones life is a treasure  like holy garden gifted by God and one need to nurture well ones own garden…

just that you don’t have a partner( helper) to help in your garden, or just that some random buffalo( hurtful people) came and spoiled some of the plants in your garden , just that some plants have some infections( setbacks, insecurities, fears)….you don’t abandon your own garden of life…you own it, protect it , repair it, maintain it, nurture it to your best efforts. Same with our lives 🙂 Don’t be in selfdoubt for more minutes when people question you the passion for your life, don’t let anyone rain on your parade, don’t let anyone destroy the garden of your life.

Love you Zindagi (Life).
