Internet Religion

Today I took a Quiz on the net... it was supposed to let me know which religion was most suitable for me...

Mrinalini had tried it earlier, the answer she got was that she was most suitable to follow Buddhism, and if she can than she better convert soon!!!

I tried, and after a tie breaker question between Hinduism and Buddhism, I was told I am cool in Hinduism, so I should remain that. Strange way to decide what religion to follow, but then, these tests are fun... Random tests off the internet, giving you loads of information about everything and everywhere...

Im posting my results here... Try taking the test, and lemme know the results! :)

You scored as Hinduism. Your views are most similar to those of... Hinduism! Do some research on Hinduism and possibly consider becoming Hindu, if you aren't already.



















Which religion is the right one for you? (new version)

I Say A Little Prayer

From the moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup
I say a little prayer for you...
While combing my hair now
And wond'ring what dress to wear now
I say a little prayer for you...

Forever, and ever, you'll stay in my heart, and I'll love you
Forever, and ever, we never will part, oh I love you
Together, forever, that's how it should be
Living without you
Would only mean heartbreak for me...

I run for the bus dear, while riding I think of us dear,
I say a lil prayer for you
At work I just take time, and all through my coffee break time
I say a lil prayer for you...


My darling believe me
For me there is no one but you
Say you love me too...

On a day like today!

Today is one of those days...
When you do not feel like working at all, but still come to office just to look at that one face that puts a smile on yours!
YES! I did smile... but along came the part when I had to work too... so tried hard after lunch to lay my hands on a fresh story to put up on the website...

We had ordered lunch today, Mrinalini and I. Burgers from Mc Donalds... they arrived, in the hands of a handsome delivery boy...and for a minute or two I did consider leaving a tip...but the guy put me off bad as he did not have a bill for our stuff... now, I am very particular with these things...so mood off again...DID NOT leave a tip.

Lunch over, had nothing much to do, or maybe just not in the mood to work! (Moody am I not?)
Mrinalini mailed me on my mail id, while sitting right beside me; There were rain clouds outside...the Sun had finally decided to go off for an evening walk, making way for those beautiful grey clouds hovering over a city full of smiling faces!

It is now becoming a very common thing, Mrinalini and Me, after more than 4 years of friendship have stated reading each others minds, though she is better at it most of the time!
She did not have to even utter a syllable, for we both turned had off our monitors at the same time, picked up our phones and walked right out of office giggling!

We planned to go to the park nearby and bitch about a few people in office... for that we needed energy, for energy we needed something to eat, we reached the nearby DMS shop for some munchies...grabbed a pack and headed straight to the swings in the park. These swings are usually the playground of screaming kids with their nannies who meet up with each other totalk to about their respective employers!

We grabbed a swing each and started talking about our school time when getting on such swings was no less that winning a world cup! With the rain clouds upon us, we went about talking about different stuff...u know girly stuff...talk about guys, fun, getaways, crushes, ex-boyfriends etc... but our talk was soon broken by the winds that felt as if they had been running after someone themselves... we decided to stay for some more time, challenging the winds, soon small drops of rain started pattering on our heads, we gave up our swinging adventures as the small drops turned into bigger ones, shielded under a neem tree, we were still munching on 'Kurkure' when it actually started to rain heavily. Suddenly, the clouds had opened their doors to the sun-parched earth, and we were outside office with no shelter from it.

We began walking to office, slowly at first, then faster as we realized that the rain was not in the mood to stop anytime soon! Took us less than 5 minutes to reach office, but those 5 min were enough to leave uss drenched from head to foot! We entered office all soaked, and a 'sight for soar eyes' as one of our colleagues exclaimed!! Both of us shot straight to the washroom, still giggling about the whole episode!

Its days like these, that leave us Happy and Content deep inside. Altough the sun did shine soon after we came back to office, but we still would not exchange that for anything else, for it was fun beyond words!!

Thanx, to the pattering RAIN, to the hurried WIND, to my best friend Pinky, and to you sweetheart!
Thanx for giving me reasons to smile all the time, all day long!

tower in the sky

It was but yesterday we met in a dream.
You have sung to me in my aloneness, and I
Of your longingness have built a tower in the sky
But now our sleep has fled and our dream is
Over, and it is no longer dawn.
The noontide is upon us and our half waking,
Has turned to fuller day, and we must part.
If in the twilight of memory we should meet
Once more, we shall speak again together and you
Shall sing to me a deeper song.
And if our hands should meet in another dream
We shall build another tower in the sky.

What is Love? Is this it?

The dictionary says, Love is -- "A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness."

But then is this all that love is? Love is commonly considered impossible to describe. So will we ever have an exact definition or a rule book with details on how to fall in love, the symptoms, the medication and proper guidance? But despite of not having that rulebook, we all do fall in love... and, I think I have too.

But then I am not sure if I am ready to call it Love... I do not know, is this feeling as confusing as it is to me? I know I like him, but is the question is, is this Love? They say that I am putting too much thought to it, not giving the feeling enough chances to grow on its own...but they also say that only fools rush in... and I should think about it....so what am I supposed to do? I do not know of flowery words, all I know is that this is real... as real as rain drops falling on my window pane and in his stupid lane...

But if it is as real as rain, the why am I so confused about this feeling? Is it normal? Is it supposed to be this way? Its not as if I have not fallen in love before, but this time its different, there is also a sense of respect and responsibility towards that special someone...I want to be with him, but there are times when I do not even want to see his face...anger, is it? or is it jealousy, as some tell me? Maybe, it is both, maybe it is nothing....I do not know how to describe it.. this strange feeling....

May be it is Love!

On Love

Then said Almitra, "Speak to us of Love."
And he raised his head and looked upon the people, and there fell a stillness upon them. And with a great voice he said:
When love beckons to you follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.
For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.
Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.
He threshes you to make you naked.
He sifts you to free you from your husks.
He grinds you to whiteness.
He kneads you until you are pliant;
And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God's sacred feast.
All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life's heart.
But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure,
Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor,
Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.
When you love you should not say, "God is in my heart," but rather, I am in the heart of God."
And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.
---- The PROPHET, by Kahlil Gibran
