My Dream Travelogue!!

“ZZZzzzzzz  ZZZzzzzzzz” a mosquito flies past my eyes when I realize my mouth is open, my eyes wide as I keep staring at my computer monitor awestruck. Seeing the locations in this site I rub my eyes in disbelief if these are places on earth. I add malaysia to my list of “Countries to visit before I die”. Don’t ask if I already had such list. I am creating one now on seeing these breathtaking pictures because what if I go to heaven(ofcourse hell is full) and see these places from there. I would be heartbroken on missing them.
As I scan through the places state wise my “Places to visit” list keeps increasing like gold price that I wonder if a year stay would suffice to cover all the places.

The topic seems simple at first “All you have to do is write a blog post about 5 things you would want to experience in Malaysia“. But the tough part is to choose ONLY 5. I started with around 30 places and halfheartedly started reducing the count. Even when I started writing this post I had 10 places. I am yet to decide the final 5. Hopefully by the end of this post I would have finalized them.

Pulau Payar Marine Park, Langkawi

Pulau Payar Marine Park, Langkawi


Ever since I had seen the wood house amidst water in the film Force I had wanted to visit a place similar to that. On reading that the base out here is the floating platform moored off Pulau Payar I am very excited. I have read in many books about scuba diving but god knows what it is. It would be a thrill to try it out here. An underwater observation chamber to view the marine life surrounding the reef is way too exciting. Pulau payar Marine Park is the #No 1 place to visit in Malaysia.

It has always been my dream to explore forests. I think this is due to the influence of films. Be it romantic films like twilight or adventurous films like congo or jurassic park there is always forest. But I am also a little frightened about forests. But when I read that you could explore forests from a height of 50m safe I thought “Yesssss!!!”. What more pleasure can I get, walking amidst the jungle, 50m above the ground holding the hand of my love and enjoying the nature around me. Tree Top Walk is at #No 2 position.

Seriously this place makes me believe that there is heaven on earth. It would be a pleasure to play in the sea early morning with its clear water making your skin fresh and alive. What more than enjoying the beauty of the sea lying in the beach. Pulau Redang is the #No 3 place to visit in Malaysia.

To be honest I had seen this place in honeymoon pictures of almost all my friends. I am not yet married. So I guess my future hubby will take me here on reading this post.🙂 To be surrounded by water and observing the sea animals while remaining dry is thrilling. Aquaria KLCC is #No 4.

Finally I have nailed the top 5 places I would like to visit in Malaysia. Hopefully this dream travelogue of mine becomes a reality in the near future🙂

I am participating in the MalaysiaJao Blogathon Contest in association with BlogAdda.com.

Kaun banega hair dancer

2 years earlier:

With reality shows becoming a big hit in India we at “V❤ Hair” Studios have come up with a new contest for all the hair lovers.

V <3 Hair Studios

The contest rules are pretty simple:
1. Participants should entertain the audience with their hair.(not make them pluck their hair)
2. Of course Bald/People with tonsured head not eligible for participation.
3. At the end of the performance there should be no hair damage, falling of hair or any other noticeable hair related problems, else participants will be disqualified.
4. Participants should live within this boundary india-map-small-icon
5. Your real age(not FB age) should be 18+.
6. Your gender doesn’t matter as long as you have hair.
7. The winner will be chosen by a panel of judges. Judges decision is not final. You can protest by throwing rotten egss or tomatoes if you are not satisfied with the result.

Now:
After nearly 100 episodes of laborious contests including wild card rounds and voting for 2 years we have finally come to the Grand Finale of “Kaun banega hair dancer” with 3 finalists. In this final round apart from the entertainment quotient contestants hair will be meticulously judged for hair problems that were not noticeable in previous rounds. Now introducing you the 3 grand finalists

Finalist #1
Sona singh:
Introducing Sona Singh a promising contestant of Kaun banega hair dancer. We have seen various scintillating performances of her hair. Let us wait and watch if she is able to rock this round without any hair disasters.

Sona Singh - During her performance

Sona Singh – During her performance

Thank you Sona for entertaining us with your performance.Though her performance was watchable we have noticed hair fall and hair tangling. Hope the hair straightening didn’t cause this damage sona. Judges won’t be pleased with this.

Next on the top 3 list is Vinay gupta
Finalist #2
Vinay Gupta:
Vinay gupta is the only male contestant who has been able to withstand till last round in this women dominated contest. We wish him good luck for a rocking performance.

Vinay SIngh - Rocking the stage

Vinay SIngh – Rocking the stage

Ohhhh Nooo!! Dandruff on his shirt. Vinay should have been more careful with his hair colouring I guess. But let’s wait and watch our final contestant before beginning our guesses.

Finalist #3:
Aditi:
Aditi has been a tough contender from the very start. With gorgeous, shiny hair she is sure a dream girl. Introducing our final contestant Aditi.

Audience enjoying Aditi’s performance with covetous eyes

That was indeed a hair boggling performance🙂. Though the audience would have made a guess about the winner let’s give a chance for the judges to decide. The winner will be announced in another 10 minutes. BREAK.

The most awaited moment has come with the judges ready with the results. The winner is OF COURSE ADITI!!!! For those who missed her live performance check out the below video.

We are taking you backstage to meet the participants to ask about their experience and journey. After a long search we find Sona.

Lets find out what is preventing people from playing with their hair:
Me : Hi Sona..How was your experience on stage.
Sona : It was pretty fine. I was a little nervous at start. But I didn’t expect my hair to behave the way it did. I had done hair straightening few weeks back. I think my hair was too weak to withstand that. May be I should have taken proper care or changed my shampoo. Due to hair fall I am afraid to even touch my hair now.But I am happy that I was able to make it till the last round.

We then find Vinay surrounded by a crowd of girls. He waves to us but is again pulled into the crowd. We finally meet Aditi. Let’s hear it from the winner.
Me : Hai Aditi. How was your overall experience.
Aditi : I am very excited to have won the contest. I wish to thank my fans and judges for their support.
Me : What do you think is the reason for your success?
Aditi : Youngsters nowadays do lots of experiments on hair. Be it colouring or hair straightening. Our hair becomes weak due to constant exposure to heat and other chemicals. This leads to hair fall, dandruff, split ends, gray hair and hair damage. Due to such problems people are afraid to touch their own hair let alone play with it due to the fear of hair fall. Dove has given me confidence to experiment with my hair without damaging it.
Me : So the long awaited answer for your gorgeous hair is dove.
Aditi : Yeah! Ever since I started using dove i am falling in love with my hair. I even sleep hugging my hair and smelling it.

How Aditi loves to play with her hair:
Aditi loves to colour her hair. She tells “It brings different shades in me”. Yeah sure it does.

"Love to have different looks by colouring my hair" - Aditi

“Love to have different looks by colouring my hair” – Aditi

Hairstyles Aditi has tried because her hair is manageable.

Aditi - trying different styles

Aditi – trying different styles

For those who wish to experiment with their hair without having to worry about it switch to Dove and play with your hair like Aditi.

To follow dove on twitter #DovePlay

Ssshhh…Ssshhh…

Beads of perspiration trickle down my cheek, my breathing becomes labored and I start seeing white spots clouding my vision.

I stare at the white paper in my hand trying to comprehend it while I hear scratching sounds of pen around me wishing I could be anywhere in the world except here.

“Sssh.. ssh”  I hear a voice behind me and on turning I see my FRIEND signaling me to pass my answer sheet.

Laughing I show him my empty sheet and we leave the exam hall smiling knowing that we both would flunk.

It is indeed true that friends have the capability to turn your worst moments into your best moments.

Friends forever!!

Approximately 33.968 trillion miles from earth is Hell(Don’t ask me how I know). It is a mundane day in hell with its daily ritual in progress. In one corner is a big pot of oil with few people boiling in it, few others burning in fire, some being eaten by insects like leeches, remaining few being beaten by weapons having sharp edges like gada. “Ghazni” a voice shouts. Everyone is so relieved to hear the voice, for the intrusion has momentarily stopped their torture. It is Chitragupta standing with a big bound book searching for his target amongst the crowd of people. Ghazni is allotted for Agnikunda, a punishment wherein the guilty is roasted in agni kunda(fire) in inverted position with hands and legs tied under a stick. It is for people who steal others property by force. Ghazni is released from the stick and comes forward.

Chitragupta : It has been 983 years since you are a resident here.

Ghazni : Only 983? Am I being transferred to heaven?

Chitragupta gets irritated.

Chitragupta : 983 years in hell for 59 years in earth.

Ghazni is ashamed

Ghazni : Money and power made me blind.

Chitragupta : Good that you realized at least now after 983 years in hell. Btw you are eligible for parole.

Ghazni : Parole??

Chitragupta : It is a new scheme introduced by Yamraj wherein you are free to leave hell for a day.

Ghazni : Can I  get it extended for a week?

Chitragupta : You are not Mr. Sunjay Dutt..

Ghazni : What am I supposed to do? Am I free to go to earth?

Chitragupta : Yes. You should go to earth. Note how people remember you. List the mistakes you made during your life and given a chance to rectify them note them and submit a report to me.

Ghazni becomes happy that he is allowed to go to earth. He is excited to see earth after nearly 983 years. Waving good bye to his fellow mates at hell he starts his journey towards earth. As soon as Chitragupta had said earth, Ghazni wanted to visit India for it was the most beautiful and fertile country he had ever seen and the country where he had done most of his misdeeds. He wanted to know what history had written about him.

As he descends from the sky he sees tall buildings,people, vehicles and smoke everywhere. Wondering if it is the same earth or some other planet with humans he lands in the corner of a street watching the people pass by. He was quite sure no one would know him. Clueless as to where to start he finds a school. He is sure that somewhere in the pages of the history book his name would be mentioned. Scanning each and every class at last he finds a class room with History written on the black board and below it “Muhammed Ghazni”. Excited he enters the classroom and sits in the last bench next to a boy who is sleeping peacefully. First thing he hears from the teacher is “Ghazni looted India 17 times”. Feeling bad for himself he continues listening. The teacher continues

” In the name of Islam, he conquered the eastern Iranian lands and the northwestern Indian subcontinent from 997 to his death in 1030. During his rule, he invaded and plundered parts of Hindustan 17 times.”

He wonders about the wealth he had accumulated. He doesn’t remember enjoying them for constantly he was seeking more wealth. After death the wealth was of no use to him. He was an ordinary man being tormented in hell. He wonders what would have happened had he not been greedy. Would he have lived long? Would he have been happier? Would he have been in  heaven? With so many thoughts racing his mind he continues listening.

“Mahmud conquered and destroyed thousands of Hindu temples during his raids including the famous Somnath temple, which he destroyed in 1025 AD, killing over 50,000 people who tried to defend it. ”

He thinks about the innocent people whom he had killed ruthlessly. What harm had they done to him? He now understands the reason for his punishment in hell. He is sure that he will rot in hell for all that he had done. The teacher continues further

“He made great efforts to capture and destroy Somnath, in the hope that the Hindus would then become Muhammadans. As a result thousands of Hindus were forcibly converted to Islam. Mahmud had the gilded lingam of somnath temple broken into pieces and had them made into steps for his mosque and palace.”

He recalls those incidents as if they had happened yesterday. He feels disappointed in himself for making people convert religion. After death he had neither seen Lord Allah nor Lord Shiva. All he had seen was a single supreme power. He grieved for the fact that he had used religion to do crimes for god is one.

Feeling deeply ashamed and guilty he leaves the classroom making sure not to wake the boy who is sleeping. Chitragupta smiles as Ghazni enters hell for he had seen everything happening on earth. Chitragupta asks for the report. Ghazni hands over it.

Written inside are two things

1. Money is not everything in the world. Looting people is a cowardice act. You have no right to kill others, for all are the children of God.

2. Fighting in the name of religion is stupidity because there is only one God. We give various forms to him and worship.

A small smile appears in the corner of Chitragupta’s lips for he had achieved what he had wanted. Now it was time to call Hitler.

For all those wondering what the title meant “Yamīn ad-Dawlah Abul-Qāṣim Maḥmūd Ibn Sebüktegīn”  is Ghazni’s full name.

Chitra gupta – Chitragupta is a god assigned with the task of keeping complete records of actions of human beings on the earth. Upon their death, Chitragupta has the task of deciding heaven or the hell for the humans, depending on their actions on the earth.

Those three words!!!!

Readers the three words are definitely not “I Love u”🙂
I remember sitting in my 2nd grade class with my teacher telling “Whenever you meet someone you should greet them by asking “How are you?””. I thought it was a custom followed everywhere. But later I realized that the question will keep changing as you grow. As I turned 21 slowly the question “How are you” got replaced by “When’s your marriage?”.Yes those are the three words I got allergic to.
Wherever I go these serious people seems to be following me everywhere with the same question. Initially I was happy to answer their questions because it was nice that someone cared for you.

Alas they transferred their serious “serious disease” to me.😦

When I was a kid I used to love to go to marriages because it was infinite fun. I loved dressing like a princess, eating lots of sweets, taking pictures etc. But these serious people started cornering me in marriages too spoiling my fun.

Even at marriages

Even at marriages

Nowadays I avoid going to marriages to escape from these people thus sacrificing the fun and food along with it.

Even if I avoid marriages people come to my home to give invitations for their children’s marriage. Nowadays I hide whenever I see people with invitations entering my home because eventually the topic will come about my marriage. When they ask my parents “When are you planning marriage for your daughter?” and if my parents reply “May be in a year or two” you will get a disapproving, dissatisfied and serious “Still your daughter is unmarried” look. For those who have not experienced it have a look below.

Disapproving look

The disapproving look you get when you tell you are not getting married now😦

Not only do you become a victim to these people if you are not married but due to other reasons as well.You become a target to these people if your answer to any of the following questions is No.

VIctims of serious people

Victims of serious people are those with answer No to the above questions

Take these serious people seriously because believe me or not they are responsible for half the diseases related to depression, heart attack and seriousness(Of course it is a disease). Imagine people drilling you down with the same question wherever you go and making you serious. Your mind starts to conceive that you are doing something wrong. You start thinking about it again and again causing depression and seriousness.

Currently there are twenty-three chapters, consisting of five hundred and eleven sections in our Indian Penal Code. I suggest the government to include 512th section to prevent these serious people from making our lives serious.

Section 512: Making people serious

512:Making people serious—(1) Where a person is made serious by a serious person for trivial matters making his otherwise non-serious life serious

Explanation : (1) Whoever makes a person serious shall be punished with life long ban from being serious, and banned from asking questions to people which will make them serious.

CLASSIFICATION OF OFFENCE
Punishment—Accused should always be smiling the rest of his life and stop being serious otherwise he will be imprisoned for life—Cognizable—Non-bailable—Triable by Court of Session—Non-compoundable.

COMMENTS
Applicability
Everyone in the planet.

Burden of Proof
A written complaint by anyone who was made serious.

The serious gang

The serious gang who become serious for ordinary matters.

Dear serious people,
Please understand that enquiring about people is different. It shows care and love. But making them serious by asking the same questions again and again is a criminal offense if my above suggestion to include section 512 is made legal🙂. People know to take care of themselves. So stop interfering in their lives trying to give suggestions, irritating and making them serious. There is no fixed age for anything in life. You have 100+ years to live and enjoy life. Why try to finish things in a hurry in life.

The only cure known for seriousness as on 23/02/2014 is

5 star - Cure for serious people

5 star – Cure for serious people

The serious gang - made unserious

The serious gang – made unserious

Disclaimer : This post is a fun post not intended to hurt anyone or make them serious. In case it made you serious please try the cure suggested above.

I wrote this post to participate in Condition serious hai contest conducted by the Cadbury 5 Star Facebook page

The pictures in this post were created using http://www.toondoo.com/ and of course MS Paint🙂

Why Us?

I am not sure if I’m dreaming or is someone really kicking me. I struggle to open my eyes against my heavy eyelids. But the kicking continues so I open my eyes to see a man standing next to me smiling. Does kicking someone make you happy? I wonder. With such a wonderful start to my day I drag my legs and leave the place wishing myself “Bad morning”. After a few steps I feel a sudden twitching in my stomach as if my large intestine is eating my small intestine. I realize that I’m hungry.

I start searching for a place to eat when I find a tea shop. As soon as I near it I hear people shouting, “Hey! Go away! Who let THIS here? Get lost”. With sadness in my eyes and hunger in my stomach I leave the place thinking “Who let THIS?. Don’t I have life? It should’ve been Who let HIM”. Cursing the guy I start my search again to find a marriage hall. Blessing the couples I go to the garbage can in search of leftover food. I find 2 dogs already fighting there for the food.  With no other option I also enter the fight and grab some food and run from that place. Thanking god for the food I finish eating.

Feeling tired I close my eyes for a nap when I hear laughter nearby. I turn to see few children playing. Happy on seeing them playing I go near them to join. Suddenly a boy sees me and starts throwing stones at me. On seeing him his friends also start throwing stones at me. Frustrated and hurt I run away from that place madly when I see a car approaching me fastly. It was as if Lord Yama dharma was riding his buffalo and approaching me. Praying god that I should go to heaven I suddenly hear a voice shouting “Stop.. You are going to kill the DOG.”

“DOG? Oh yes I’m a dog. If I were a human you will fear to treat me the above way because you know that I will thrash you back. You treat a dog this way because you think of dogs as poor, helpless creatures. Wait. I hear dogs barking. I better check it out. Don’t go anywhere I will be back.” I start running in the direction of the sound when I see a vehicle with board “Dog vehicle”. Frightened I run as fast as my legs could carry me not caring about the direction because wherever I go my life would be the same with the people around me considering me an unwanted thing.

“While there are some humans who treat dogs like humans there are few other people who don’t treat dogs even like dogs. Even Lord Kaala Bairavar has a dog as his vehicle. But you humans treat us like a scum. Why us? What harm did we do to you people”.

Lord kaala bairavar

Lord kaala bairavar

Maybe like the monkeys in the movie “Rise of planet of Apes” if we dogs started showing our power you people will respect us.

Don’t forget that even GOD is DOG spelled backwards!.
So next time you see a street dog I’m not asking you to go and hug him. Just don’t hurt him for he also has feelings.”

With love,
Street dog.

Ha! Dont get confused. You are reading the right post “Recharge your hair, recharge your life”. I found this pic of mine as I was scanning my childhood album. The doll that you see in my hand is Pinky. Pinky was my favourite doll. I remember spending hours dressing her. But most of the time I spent combing her hair and trying different hairstyles on her. Somehow I believed that the beauty of my doll was directly proportional to the beauty of her hair. The more I took care of her hair the more beautiful she became. If this is the case with dolls so it is with humans because dolls are miniature human beings. My simple formula is hair is air with an H with both being mandatory and important to our life.

Ever wondered why rishis have long hair?

rishi

It seems that we have more hair on the head because that is where the seat of energy is.

As quoted in Autobiography of a Yogi

” “The spinal cord is like an upturned tree, with man’s hair as its roots, and afferent and efferent nerves as branches.Like an upturned plant, man similarly absorbs through his hair electric currents helpful to the body”.

Hence hair is not just a filamentous biomaterial. It helps us absorb cosmic energy. Having a recharged hair helps us recharge our body.
