An Important Lesson

Movie-theatre1

So I was extremely excited . I came early and had already bought all my favourites from the candy bar so I wouldn’t have to go out in the intermission and risk missing any scene of the movie. Popcorn in one hand and coke in another , I was ready to go . It was a premier and me and my sister were going ecstatic ( mostly me ) to see the next instalment of twilight ( a teen series ). The theatre was pretty isolated.

” I can’t believe am finally going to see the movie ! ” I said erratically.

” Yeah , I know huh .” My sister replied while texting on her phone.

Just when we were about to enter the hall , a guy sealed it shut.

” Sorry folks , the show has been cancelled .” He said with a blank expression.

” Wait , What ? Why ?” I asked with a croaked voice.

” Well , the prints came late and its going to take some time to run it , so no-show today. We’ll get you a refund. Feel free to come back tomorrow , I am sure it will be sorted out till then . ” He said leaving me with a shocked expression and a pain in my heart .

Then in an unexpected turn of events , my sister stepped in.

” How dare you ! ” I turned my head towards her . ” How can you people be so irresponsible.We booked the tickets for this show two weeks ago. This movie is already releasing late in India and my sister was so happy to finally be able to watch it. You broke her heart. I don’t want a refund . I want to see this movie TODAY !” She yelled at the manager long enough to scare him to death.

After ten minutes he returned and arranged a show for us after half an hour and refunded our food ( which was half eaten ) and upgraded our seats. I was the perfect picture of joy. That manager was never to be seen again , well I did see one guy run like hell after seeing my sister who looked awful a lot like that manager.That day I understood my sister loves me a lot just doesn’t show it a lot. I loved the movie and learned a very important lesson – Never to get on my sister’s bad side , ever !

 

The Second Dinner

“Patty, I am so hungry .” I told my big sister , rubbing my tummy . “But you just had dinner .” Patty reminded me. ” But it’s already time for my second dinner .” I said impatiently . ” There is no such thing as a second dinner ! How much can an eight year old kid even eat ? Where does it all even go ?” She said pointing at my skinny body . This was the first time we were alone at home as our parents were out on dinner and mum had fixed dinner for us which was now in refrigerator . Me being a home alone movie’s fan , I was pretty excited what adventure the night would bring us and soon found out it was an empty stomach as Patty spilled our leftover dinner. ” Don’t worry Sam , help me clean this up and I will think of something , I won’t let you starve for your second dinner.”She said with confidence. Then she fished out a packet of Maggi (a brand of instant noodles ) .” But I don’t really like it ” I said with a disappointing tone . ” Sam , just try it this time , I will make it special for you . ” Patty said partly because she didn’t know how to cook anything else . I know its pretty easy to make Maggi and you don’t have to do anything but the way she made it was enchanting . Carefully adding all the ingredients and stirring them , she was so happy like she was the only one who could make it with such perfection , the expression on her face was of pure bliss.She cooked it with so much love how could I not find it delicious . ” Patty , this is my favourite dish now .” I told her while slurping it . She replied with her big smile that I adore. The Maggi my sister makes is still my favourite dish (for second dinner) .

True Love – A Myth ?

love

What exactly is love?

I think love is such a beautiful thing that it has to be a myth, because something as pure and serene as love can’t survive in today’s ‘survival of the fittest’ world. We all just delude ourselves into thinking we know what love is.In reality, we are selfish and  have a self-serving motive in everything we do , even when we are not able to see it. Mostly its to make our life easier,but life isn’t supposed to be easy or fair.

The true love of soul mate kind of love only exists in movies and books, not in real life.On earth , we have more of a convenient love.Easy going and pragmatic , now that kind of love lasts in real life.We all wonder ,are soul mates really real ? The optimists like to believe they are but even they agree the probability of meeting your soul mate is like a million to one.So people waiting for ‘the one’ better get ready to die alone because the math is definitely not in their corner.

Philosophers say opposites attract but even that is proved through science, so how can people who find logic even in love actually find love.Because love is  supposed to be logic less and clueless.We read a few book and watch some romantic comedies we think we know all there is to know about love.But love is not to be understood , its to be felt.

Love is different for everybody.It doesn’t have to be the soul mate kind , it can also be with someone or something you connect with,that you think understands you in a whole different way.Because in the end, I think , love is all about understanding one another.Its said that when we eat chocolate, the same enzyme is released in our brain and body when we are supposedly in love.So just like we prefer some chocolates over others, some love are strong and some weak.Our favourites in chocolate keep changing exactly how we outgrow some loves because they weren’t meant to be until we taste that ultimate chocolate  which we know will always remain our favourite even though sometimes it may taste bitter.

So to answer the question is love a myth ? well , we have all our life to find out.

Love is the symphony no. fifth

Love is the hope we live with

Love we wish isn’t a myth

Book Quotes That Make Me Wonder

think-you-dont-like-romance-novels-ftr

There many quotes that just leave you wondering for hours.Some touch your heart in the most unexpected way ,some makes you feel were especially made for you and with some you form an instant connection.These wise lines often make my day and leave me smiling.These little lines make reading books worthwhile and make a permanent place for an unknown character in your heart.Following are some quotes I cherish.

”Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.”  This amazing quote is in an amazing book – The Fault In Our Stars . After reading this book everybody will want to read  An Imperial Affliction but sadly it’s not a real book.Anyways,this book has such profound quotes but this make me wonders the most.As explained by John Green the author like in maths there are infinite numbers between 0 and 1 like 0.1 , 0.01, 0.001 and so on but there are more infinite numbers between 0 and 2,similarly augustus gave hazel an infinity in only some numbered days which she will cherish all her life the most.”I fell in love with you the way you fall asleep, first slowly and then all at once.”An incredible quote again from the same book.

”We accept the love we think we think we deserve.” this is from The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.Its so true.Many times we accidentally find something beautiful but end up ruining it because we feel we are unworthy of it and pick those people who hurt us.”I feel infinite.” this is one of my favourite quotes.This phrase exactly describes that moment when you feel boundless, limitless and immeasurably great.When you know nothing can hold you back.That one moment when we are infinite.

“When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, it’s not reasonable to grieve when it must come to an end.” it’s from twilight.Its so true.It isn’t reasonable to grieve because everything has to end one day , but nobody wants to wake up from such a perfect dream .”Death is peaceful,easy,Life is harder.”Life is difficult and death easy that’s why our reward for living is death.

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” The Alchemist taught me a lot of things including the fact that dream , and dream big because the possibility of fulfilling that dream is what makes life interesting.When you follow your dream the whole universe helps you, you just need to keep your eyes open in order to accept that help and be patient,you will get there.

”Do not pity the dead, pity the living and above all else those who live without love.” Dumbledore’s one of the wisest man I have ever had the pleasure of reading.”After all this time ? Always.” Snape replies when Dumbledore asks him about his love for Lily.Always,because love can never vanish but only grow.”It’s our choices that decide who we truly are , far more than our abilities.”Harry Potter showed us that we can always choose to be good, to use our abilities for good.It doesn’t matter where we come from but where we go from there.

All these quotes make me wonder

All these quotes teach me life is a beautiful godsend

All these quotes I’ll cherish till the end
