Life of Anand

Fun with friends is his daily bread,
With jokes and tales, his heart is fed.
He’s always up for an adventure,
To explore the world with pure pleasure.

But his heart’s been broken once or twice,
In struggles with relationships, he paid the price.
But he picks himself up and moves on,
To find new love and write a new song.

Blogging is his passion and his muse,
With each new post, he lights a fuse.
He shares his thoughts and experiences,
To motivate and inspire, he never misses.

An entrepreneur at heart, he takes a chance,
To create a business, to take a stance.
He experiments and tries new things,
To build his empire, to spread his wings.

Long drives are his escape from the grind,
On the open road, his soul unwinds.
With the wind in his hair and the sun on his face,
He finds solace and peace in this open space.

Anand’s life is full of ups and downs,
But he never loses his smile or his crown.
With his friends by his side and his dreams in sight,
He’ll live his life with all his might.


Love and Fear: The Battle Within a Coward’s Heart

As a coward, expressing love can be an extremely difficult task. Love requires vulnerability and courage, both of which can be very intimidating for someone who is naturally inclined towards fear and avoidance. It’s not that cowards are incapable of feeling love; it’s just that they struggle to express it in the way that they want to.

For me, expressing love has always been a daunting prospect. I have always been afraid of rejection and the potential for hurt that comes with putting oneself out there. As a result, I have often found myself holding back my feelings, afraid of what might happen if I were to reveal them. This has caused me a great deal of pain over the years, as I have watched opportunities for love slip away because I was too afraid to take the risk.

It’s not that I don’t feel love deeply. I do, and it’s a wonderful feeling. The problem is that my fear of rejection and my tendency to avoid confrontation make it difficult for me to express that love in a way that feels authentic and meaningful. Instead, I find myself resorting to small gestures and platitudes, hoping that they will be enough to convey what I am feeling.

Unquenchable Desires: Navigating the Joy and Pain of Love

Love is a powerful emotion that can make us feel both joy and pain. It can be difficult to express our feelings to someone, especially if we fear rejection. When unquenchable desires keep appearing, they can pierce our hearts and leave us feeling scared and vulnerable.

For me, expressing my love is like walking on a tightrope. It takes courage and a leap of faith to tell someone how I feel, but the fear of rejection can be paralyzing. I stir her name every day in my soul, but the trial she walks is like a shadow that I can never catch.

The hesitation in expressing my love is like a heavy weight on my chest. It’s as if I’m constantly holding my breath, waiting for the right moment to exhale. But the longer I wait, the harder it becomes. The dumbness and infatuation are like two halves that keep killing me every day.

One can only appreciate the joy in life after enduring sorrow!

Life is a journey filled with ups and downs, and at times, it can be difficult to see the good in the midst of the bad. We all experience challenges, pain, and suffering at some point in our lives, and it’s natural to feel overwhelmed, discouraged, or even hopeless during those times.

However, as the saying goes, “it is often said that one can only appreciate the joy in life after enduring sorrow.” In this blog, we will explore the meaning behind this statement and why it holds true for many of us.

Sorrow is a natural part of the human experience. It comes in many forms, such as the loss of a loved one, a relationship ending, a job loss, or even a health issue. No matter the cause, sorrow can leave us feeling broken and defeated, like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. However, it is through these difficult times that we are often able to grow and develop a deeper appreciation for the good things in life.

When we experience sorrow, it can be easy to get lost in our own pain and despair. But as time goes on, we may start to see glimpses of hope and joy. Perhaps it’s a beautiful sunset that we notice on our way home from work, the laughter of a friend during a phone call, or a kind gesture from a stranger. These small moments of light can shine brighter in the midst of our darkness, and help us to appreciate the beauty of life in a new way.

Enduring sorrow can also teach us important lessons about ourselves and the world around us. We may learn about our own resilience, strength, and capacity for empathy and compassion. We may gain a deeper understanding of the struggles that others face and become more compassionate and kind as a result. Through our own pain and suffering, we may also be inspired to help others who are going through similar experiences.

Last but not least, the saying that “one can only appreciate the joy in life after enduring sorrow” holds true for many of us. Enduring sorrow can be a difficult and painful experience, but it can also lead to growth, empathy, and a deeper appreciation for the good things in life. By recognizing and embracing the lessons we learn during difficult times, we can find strength and hope to move forward, and ultimately, experience the joy that life has to offer

Understanding and Overcoming Loneliness

Loneliness is a common human emotion that can affect us all at some point in our lives. It can be a challenging feeling to deal with, especially when it persists for a prolonged period. The feeling of being lonely is not just limited to being physically alone but can also arise even in the presence of others.

It is essential to understand that loneliness is not a sign of weakness, but rather a natural human emotion that needs to be addressed. If you’re feeling lonely, it’s important to take the necessary steps to overcome it.

The first step in dealing with loneliness is to acknowledge it. It’s okay to admit that you’re feeling lonely and that you need help. Once you’ve recognized your loneliness, you can take the necessary steps to address it.

One way to combat loneliness is to focus on yourself. Take time to engage in activities that make you happy, such as reading a book, taking a walk, or practicing a hobby. Self-care is essential in combating loneliness, and it’s important to prioritize your well-being.

If you’re struggling with loneliness, it’s important to remember that you’re not alone. Many people experience loneliness at some point in their lives, and there is always help available.

In conclusion, loneliness is a challenging emotion to deal with, but it’s essential to recognize it and take the necessary steps to overcome it. By connecting with others and focusing on yourself, you can combat loneliness and live a more fulfilling life.

Learning to Cope with the Hard Reality of Lost Friendships

I can relate to the quote ‘Lonely I’m soo lonely, I’ve no buddy on my own’ as it resonates with my current situation. Since childhood, I had a large group of friends, and I made sure to stay in touch with them regularly, expanding my social circle as I grew older.

However, over the past few years, I have lost almost all of my friends. Some friendships ended because I borrowed money from them, creating a rift between us. In other cases, I lent money to friends, and when I needed help, they were unable to support me, causing the relationship to crumble.

During a difficult time, I noticed a change in their behavior towards me, and many of them stopped talking to me without any explanation. It’s a tough realization, but I understand now that no relationship is guaranteed to last forever.

I am doing my best to accept this new reality and come to terms with the hard truth of relationships.

When Help Comes with a Cost

There’s no denying that receiving help from someone who genuinely cares about you is a wonderful feeling. It can give you a sense of security and comfort knowing that you have someone you can turn to when you need it the most. However, what happens when that help comes with a cost?

When someone offers you help, it’s natural to assume that they have your best interests at heart. However, what if that help comes with unsolicited advice, constant nagging, and a complete disregard for your boundaries? What do you do then?

It’s easy to feel trapped in a situation like this, especially when the person helping you has been a lifeline during your time of need. But, it’s important to remember that just because someone helps you, it doesn’t give them the right to overstep your boundaries or ignore your wishes.

Setting boundaries with someone who has helped you can be challenging. The first step is to recognize that you have the right to set boundaries and that it’s essential for your mental health and well-being. If someone is making you feel uncomfortable or is causing you distress, it’s important to communicate that to them in a respectful manner.

However, sometimes, despite our best efforts, the other person may not be willing to listen. In situations like these, it’s essential to seek outside help. Talk to a trusted friend who can offer you guidance and support.

Last but not least, receiving help from someone is a beautiful thing, but it should never come with a price. It’s essential to recognize your boundaries and communicate them effectively to the person helping you. If they continue to ignore your boundaries despite your efforts, it’s important to seek outside help. Always remember that you have the right to live your life on your terms, and no one has the right to take that away from you.

The Fine Line Between Freedom and Loneliness

The question of whether being alone is freedom or loneliness is a complex and highly debated topic. On the one hand, being alone can be seen as a form of freedom, as it allows one to live life on their own terms and pursue their own interests without the constraints of others. On the other hand, being alone can also be seen as loneliness, a state of isolation and disconnection from others that can lead to feelings of sadness and despair.

At first glance, it may seem like the two concepts are at odds with each other. After all, freedom implies independence, while loneliness suggests a lack of connection. However, the reality is that the two are often intertwined, and the relationship between them is far more nuanced than it might seem.

On one hand, the freedom of being alone can be incredibly empowering. When we are free to do what we want, without anyone else’s input or interference, we are able to truly explore our passions and pursue our dreams. We can set our own schedules, make our own decisions, and live our lives in a way that feels most authentic to us.

However, this freedom can also be isolating. When we are alone, we don’t have anyone to share our experiences with, and we may feel like nobody cares about us or what we’re doing. We may feel like we are missing out on the joys of human connection, and that our lives lack the depth and richness that comes from being part of a community.

Ultimately, whether being alone is freedom or loneliness depends largely on our own perceptions and attitudes. If we approach our alone time with a sense of purpose and self-awareness, viewing it as an opportunity to grow and explore our passions, then it can be a powerful form of freedom. But if we approach it with a sense of isolation and disconnection, seeing it as a punishment or a burden, then it can quickly become a source of loneliness and despair.

In conclusion, the question of whether being alone is freedom or loneliness is a deeply personal one that is largely determined by our perceptions and attitudes. Ultimately, the key to finding true freedom in solitude is to approach it with a sense of purpose and self-awareness, recognizing the value of our own company and the opportunities that come with being able to live life on our terms

Alaipayithey: A Nostalgic Journey Back to Youthfulness and Timeless Classics

As time passes by, certain things remain etched in our memories forever. For many of us who grew up in the 80s and 90s, one such memory would undoubtedly be the iconic Tamil movie, Alaipayithey. And as we celebrate the 23rd anniversary of this timeless classic, it’s hard not to take a trip down memory lane and relive those youthful days.

I vividly remember the day I watched Alaipayithey for the first time. It was a hot summer day, and I had just finished my final year exams and was in Bangalore. I rode my bike to the Urvasi theatre, eagerly waiting to watch the movie. And what a movie it was! From the moment the lights went off to the end credits, I was transported to a world of romance, friendship, and youthful exuberance.

Mani Ratnam, the director of the movie, captured the essence of youthful romance with ease. The chemistry between the lead actors, Madhavan and Shalini, was palpable, and the songs were an instant hit. I remember downloading the songs from the internet and playing them endlessly at cyber cafes and home. Even today, I can sing the lyrics of all the songs, and whenever I ride my bike, I keep humming “Endendrum Punnagai.”

But it wasn’t just the songs and the romance that made the movie special. It was the overall feel-good factor that resonated with the youth of that time. As we watched the characters navigate the ups and downs of their relationships and lives, we felt a sense of camaraderie and empathy. It was a movie that we could all relate to, and it stayed with us long after the end credits rolled.

I still remember when mobile phones were introduced, and caller tunes were the new craze. I paid extra value-added service charges for Snegithney, and it has been my caller tune for the last 19 years now. Some of my friends even call me “Ragasiya Snegithaney” because of it.

As I reflect on the 23 years that have passed since the release of Alaipayithey, I can’t help but feel a sense of nostalgia mixed with a tinge of sadness at how fast time has flown. But the movie remains a timeless classic that has managed to retain its youthful charm, even in today’s fast-paced world. And for those of us who grew up with it, it will always hold a special place in our hearts.
