There’s just something soo romantic about standing under the moonlight and listening to ajeeb dastan hai yeh.. don’t get me wrong.. i am standing all alone out here!! but its still nice to imagine someone’s arms around you at this time.. i don’t stay in a city that never sleeps or anything. I live in a town where the roads are almost empty by 10 and at midnight (right now) its practically dead!! In fact, there is this quietness in the air that is just amazing!!
when the night has come.. and the land is dark.. and the moon is the only light..
that is exactly how i feel right now!!
that, and the fireworks somewhere far out in the city on account of today (technically yesterday) being dushera!! it gives me some time to clear my head and get rid of all the muck i have been thinking of these past few days.. like all my friends hate me.. i’m a total loser.. i can’t write.. etc etc. its only the moonlight that can make sense to you and make you see some light at times like this!!
of late, i felt that i couldn’t really write and i kept hunting around, desperately, for topics to write on. but today(tonight), though this is really just a random post, i somehow felt like my fingers finally connected with my keyboard and that from now on things will be better!!
earlier in the evening
ok.. so i know that my camera isn’t very good (its just a 1.3 megapixel afterall.) but these were all the pictures i could get. its just a glimpse of what i could see.. which was 10 times better than these photos, because what you see, what you experience in person can never be captured in a photo.
right now, i just need to go to bed and dream about all the nice things that i am thinking of right now!!

She looked outside the window and noticed the moist ground, the slightly wet trees and that smell you get from the ground after a shower of rain. She smiled and wondered how things could change so fast. When she had left for lunch the ground was absolutely dry – as if it were a parched throat in need of water. And in thirty minutes it looked so beautiful. There had barely been a shower, for the amount of rain that had poured was not much. Yet, that little rain was enough to transform the ground. She realized that it was the same with life. Life needed a little shower to bloom. On the previous day, she had thrown party for a good friend and the day had gone splendidly. But when she reached home she was faced with a different atmosphere. She had to make a choice, and her career depended on it. But it was so difficult for her to choose that she couldn’t sleep well that night. As a result, she had been grumpy all morning. After snapping at a lot of people, she finally calmed down after lunch. That was when she realized that, though she still hadn’t come to a conclusion, all she needed was a little unexpected shower in her life. and her frown would be turned upside down again. Life was unexpected, and the lows would come along with the highs. All she had to do was wait.. She smiled and continued to look out of the window.
i have been on wordpress for over 6 months now and i have begun to understand the craziness of technology bit by bit. but the one thing i still haven’t understood is the term “happiness engineers”. it is a very cute term and i would love to be called one, because it makes your work sound so much more light and happy (:P) but i still dont know what that means. i have googled and checked all the wp forums like crazy but all i can find is people discussing if it is a professional enough name or if it is good enough or if they would like to be called happiness engineers. and then i tried finding these people but to no9 avail. ok well, i found a couple of them, i just didn’t think it was appropriate to ask them what they do on their private blogs. so can someone please tell me,
- what does happiness engineering mean?
- what do they do?
- what is their job description?
- who coined the term ‘happiness engineer’?
- how did the term come into existence?
- how many happiness engineers are there in wordpress?
- is this post unique to wordpress/automattic or do people in different companies have happiness engineers?
all of a sudden i am feeling so bright and colourful!! i can see bright and rejuvenating colours all around me and it makes me happy..
especially red.. i love red right now.!! i feel so red. you can call it love, rage, aggression, sacrifice, passion,pain, danger- call it whatever you want.. i just feel it all around me. my favorite colour has always been blue and it still is.. but today- today is a red day and it is the day for me to feel red!! (i’m not sure if that makes sense, but in case it doesn’t-bare with me) i guess the fact that my bedroom wall is red, i currently have a red bedsheet and red pillows, i am wearing red nailpolish might be a cause for my redness.!! did you know red also consists of the longest wavelength of light discernible to the human eye? that is why it is used in the RGB colour systems. also there is something called the Red Hat Society which is apparently the largest women’s social group in the world.
Wikipedia says, “The Red Hat Society (RHS) is a social organization, founded in 1998, for women approaching the age of 50 and beyond. As of January 2011, there are over 70,000 registered members and almost 24,000 chapters in the United States and 25 other countries. The Red Hat Society is the largest women’s social group in the world.” cool huh??
- there are 51 (FIFTY ONE!!) varieties/shades of red.
- Red also means beautiful in Russian.
- The word ruby comes from the Latin word rubens, meaning red.
- The color red doesn’t really make bulls angry; They are color-blind.
- The red stripes on the United States Flag stand for courage.
- Chinese brides traditionally wear red wedding dresses for good luck.
- Seeing the color red can make your heart beat faster.
- Bindi‘s worn by Indian women are traditionally red.
red is such a beautiful colour and it symbolizes so many different things in different parts of the world. when i get up tomorrow morning i may no longer be fascinated by the colour red but as of today, it is all i am thinking about!!
