This feeling....

As gloomy as it gets
Like the dementors have sucked out all the happiness
Unsatisfied of everything
Looking for a reason to smile
But somehow unable to find one
Everything looks like it has been painted in black and white
A feeling of emptiness all over
A sad feeling sits deep in the soul
Everything seems meaningless
It feels like something is missing
But you don't exactly know what that is
It's just like the time has frozen
Going round and round in your head
Thinking what's wrong
Unable to figure it out
Wishing you could undo whatever you've done wrong in life
If only you had a time turner
But oh well all in vain

Books - Eternal Sanctuary

Flipping through the pages of the novel, I realized that I've read it all. Craving for more just because I hadn't gotten enough of this book.
And this happens to me all the time whenever I realize that I've completed the book, especially with the ones I love. I read them over and over and over again until I've memorized it. Hehe :P
Has that ever happened to you?
I'm sure it has, all you book-a-holics must be nodding heads.
My friends think m crazy because whenever they see me with a thick novel they'll be like "buhat fazool time hai tumharay pass". Little do they know about the perks and fun of reading. It takes you to a whole new different world without even having to travel. Makes you forget all your miseries and shows you a different life which almost seems like reality. It's like a movie going on inside your mind while you read. You can never be alone when you have a book with you .
From Hogwards to Narnia, from Paris to Afghanistan I've been everywhere thanks to all the books I've read. And the one book series that I've read for a gazillion time is the Harry Potter series. I think it's an absolute sin not to read it like seriously. I mean how can somebody not like it. And oh also the two books by Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, the books which kept me awake entire nights. I used to read it under the blanket with a torch because my sister won't let me switch on the lights.
Crazy right? :P
No wonder I have a weak eyesight.
The one book that made me cry was A thousand splendid suns by Khaled Hosseini. An amazing captivating read, a tear-jerker. 
On a rainy day people like going out and having fun but I'd rather be inside my blanket with a book along with a mug of coffee. Total bliss ^_^
"It isn't what the book costs, it's what will it cost when you don't read it."

Explore - That's what will take you ahead

Whenever people see me draw or bake. They get awed as to how did I learn it or who taught me.
And I always exclaim that I've learned it all by myself.
Well guys let me get this clear, see if you have an urge to learn something and you really really want to learn it you'll need to start exploring all by yourself.
Because that's exactly what I did. And in this modern era you have the INTERNET guys, what else do you need, everything is like one click away you don't even have to go out.
You know what our actual problem is?
Well keep thinking m sure you won't be able to find an answer that is unbiased.
The actual problem is we, ourselves, nowadays everybody wants to have everything on a silver platter. In other words 'kisi ko mehnat nahi karni bus paka pakaya hua chahiye'.
They just don't want to explore or work hard for it. They just don't want to help themselves. You see that's the reason we are still behind. I mean I still see guys in colleges getting their practical journals made from girls. 
See I am not saying that asking for help is a bad thing but it's not very good either. We should keep that option as the last resort when we've tried every possible way to help ourselves but were somehow unable to do so. 
And you know what the things you learn and the problems you solve all by yourself it actually gives you alot to learn. Just like we say a person learns from his/her mistakes. 
From what I remember it's been five years that I started baking and you guys won't believe it that I actually didn't own an oven when I started baking I used to do it on the stovetop. I was so fond of baking that I actually found out a way to bake even when you don't have an oven.
I don't even remember asking anybody to give me a tried and tested recipe of cupcakes. Well sometimes it's worth taking the risk :)
 I mean why would I do that when I have the internet.
That's our problem we don't do productive things at all, all we do is waste our time and take things for granted.
Why go ask people for help when you can do it yourself. I've always had this in myself that I don't go asking for help from anyone unless I really really need it. And let me get this clear there's a huge difference in need and want so please don't get me wrong
Most of us ask for help not because they need it, they want it.
So you see the difference?
See always remember never keep yourself from learning something new. Always have an urge to learn and explore because that's what will take you ahead. 
And the things you'll learn from exploring you'll never forget them :)

That's it for now guys I better go and study for my exam tomorrow.
