Speaking Eyes

She fell of the rung . He came running through the doors .  Her ankle was hurt , minor injury though .  He could not bear her suffering . She looked through his eyes ,  the same pain and suffering  she was going through for past 10 years . The separation had been traumatising .  They had moved on in life but that  moment took them 10 years back.

“Honey, I have told you so many times not to use this ladder , its broken “. Throwing the ladder away he lifted her in his arms . He put her on sofa , softly caressing  her ankle  and asked ,”Is the pain bad ? , she said.” No , it doesn’t seem to be, but it’s paining severely “. He ran for the first aid kit , and started  applying cream . Unable to bear the pain , she twitched his  biceps . He tried to divert her attention by kissing her on the forehead  ,playing with her hair , hugging her . Slowly he took his hands running down her body and gave a twist to the ankles . She shouted and pushed him apart.

Shouting she said, ” It hurts , don’t press it too hard ” , lost in his thoughts he came back to senses and asked , “May I know where is the first aid kit kept ?

Morning Diary

mumbai-localMorning : 7:50 am

Scene1

Train Route : Thane- Mulund-Nahur-Bhandup-kanjur-Vikhroli-Ghatkopar-VidyaVihar-Kurla-Sion-Matunga

The rest I don’t know as my destination is Matunga

Morning 7:47 am train was late ,so obviously 8;03 train too got late ….well that’s my everyday train .For the first time in whole year I had got a window seat in the morning time. But I flatly refused , as it is rainy day ….and u end up getting wet even though the windows are having shutter. I normally tend to stand because it gets difficult to get down once the train gets full. I was standing exactly in the middle . You tend to see the same faces everyday , if u catch the same train. One short heighted college going girl seemed lost . She was not able to understand whether she should stand besides me or not. At first I thought ,that she realised that she will get wet if she stands .

Rule No 1 : Never stand near the door on rainy days,…u get wet . But then I realised, she was short and not able to hold the upper handle …so she was hunting for a comfy place.

RULE NO 2 : Never stand in the entry of the sitting area. U will get crushed

And that’s what exactly happened.

Scene 2 :The girl was getting pushed inside . And then again she looked at me …I said stand where u were standing b4. …(she was having no option)

She asked me ” Is this first class , is it so crowded every time ?…I am travelling first time. I said “I realised that , and showed her the handle behind where her hand could reach out. Then I asked her , where do you want to get down ” and boom comes the answer “Ghatkopar” …..I said…it comes that side.

I absolutely could understand her state of mind and her state of first class imagination .

I told her go fast that side once the kanjur crowd gets down. She somehow managed.

Here goes the imagination of people who have never travelled by train and first  class   :  Small compartment ..with few people probably sitting and reading newspaper or novel, humming to music, busy carrying their own activity…(as shown in the movies) and very diligently getting down the compartment. Of course why not : u have paid 1000 bucks and got a first class  ticket :

Rare_empty_local_train_of_Mumbai

Actual Condition : So what you got a first class ticket ? ….standard of living has increased ,even I can have one…..colleges provide concession….anyone can have that . So it is worst than the first class . The compartments are small….and everyone ends up cramming inside.  U are able to breathe only till thane to mulund…then u are lost and sandwiched in the crowdcentral-railway-fast-local-8-am-in-morning

Scene 3 : Now comes the vidyavihar crowd. Normally they are…college goers , office crowd ppl etc. Two ladies who wanted to get down at  vidyavihar were sitting and then at vikhroli station they realised…the crowd is getting worst …better leave our seat now and start gearing up .

Now the problem here is that…at ghatkopar , how much crowd gets down …equally worse crowd  gets inside.  So now the 2 ladies got stuck. They were begging people standing near the rod to get down and get inside again …so that they could get down….but no use. They got stuck and missed their station.

Scene 4 : Now someone had to turn out a leader in such situation . One lady who got in at ghatkopar was getting pissed …so she made a formal announcement :  “We all are kurla crowd here….so whoever is standing near the rod….get down when the station comes and get inside again . I am telling you now only …you got one more chance to come inside…otherwise you will be crushed” . That lady actually said 12 3 : push ….Lol

THE LADIES IN THE FIRST CLASS Yell EACH TIME : PUSH PUSH …. they all are under going labour pain a the same time.

And that’s what happens at kurla…..All ladies unitedly  PUSH…The baby finally comes out ….ie (They get down) and equally new babies  grow inside the stomach.  Trust me KURLA Crowd is worst .

SCENE 5 : I got the advantage of being extremely thin. So voila comes my destination and I get down.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Somethings……..

WC1

There are always Something’s in life which are best understood by ‘just yourself’ . Each one in life goes through a phase making them feel as ‘life turning into one hell’ . How complicated the situation is turning out can be just felt by you . You are surrounded by people who are giving you hope, willing to believe in you . People who are trying to make you understand to take a step , to make a rational decisions . But your mind tells ‘Its something’ which no one can understand’ . Its something which only my mind knows the complexity of the situation. Consolers are always ready with their sympathizer pill. Well known are roaming around in empathizer environment . Both parties are trying their best to get your mojo back . But the feeling of ‘something’ can’t be neglected . You fight to hold on , at the same time fight to let go . Humans always quote out of anger ‘just try to put yourself in my shoes’ . But even if they do so , the intensity cannot be equalized . You meet them half way through. As I am in my ‘Something phase ‘ , I would turn worse hypocrite if I tell ‘I never belong to the party of consolers and empathizers ‘ . All belong to the continuous turns of role play , Humans try to understand each other but end up knowing nothing about the others . Because it is that ‘Something’ which matters and will always matter .
This whole crap written above can be somewhat described in an optimistic way in the famous quote .

What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us.’

Selfish Me

Selfish Me

You nurture dependency , yet yearn constant independency

You fear losing the close ones , yet want to break -free your path tons

You debate the modern views , yet can’t neglect the conservative views

You believe in the spiritual path yet want to have materialistic math

You want to get everything , but are left with nothing 

The feeling is unbeatable , emotions unstable

Your worries seem endless , you hide the suppress

The selfish me is intertwined , leaving I undermined

 

 

Letting Go

Art of letting go is tough to learn

My mind got to turn stern

The endless wait has arrived

With a new wait to survive

Recurring thoughts of past mistakes rebound

Heart pounds with the fear of flesh wound

Turning into a new leaf is a long journey

I need to keep myself burning,

As I sit alone in my room

Waiting for my thoughts to resume

Being an avid watcher and a reader ….(as every blogger is I guess)…I became a hoarder in my life . Lately I realized that I could have shared my collection with the world . My collection started with books,  magazines , newspaper cut-outs to sitcoms being latest . Now my conundrum is, few quotes from each chunk has filled my desktop. So here I present my rigmarole . Hope someone can make sense out of it .

When life altering moment occurs,people remember …..(Castle) 

If you keep people pushing away..you will end up alone…(Castle)

Sometimes the littlest thing in life changes something forever and there will be times when you wish you can go back to how things used to be but you just can’t because things have changed so much…(Grey’s Anatomy)

How did you get so smart ??-  Claire  ” I always assumed baby adoption or baby switch”- Haley ….(Modern Family)

History is that certainty produced at the point  where the imperfections of memory meet the inadequacies of documentation. (Book- Julian Barnes- The sense of ending)

“I am married already three time already.  May be you are looking for the  right man? ….They always look rite at the start….(My Week With Marilyn)

And I had learned the hard way that sometimes even with the purest intentions we make things worst when we do our best to make things better…(Shantaram) 

News tells you what people did . Gossip tells you how much you enjoyed it …(Shantaram)

Optimism is the first cousin of love , and its exactly like love in three ways:its pushy , it has no real sense of humor and it turns up when least expected…..(Shantaram)

A reasonable man adapts himself to the world and unreasonable man adapts world to himself..so all progress depends on the unreasonable man….(Article)

We must both have been hungry because we constantly led the conversation round to food.
“What is your favorite dish, granddad?”
“All of them, my son. It’s a great sin to say this is good and that is bad.”
“Why? Can’t we make a choice?”
“No, of course we can’t.”
“Why not?”
Because there are people who are hungry.” I was silent, ashamed. My heart had never been able to reach that height of nobility and compassion……………(Zorba the Greek)

Two Minutes To Notice

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the midst of crowd , I was waiting for a friend
Watching the hustle , passing by like a wind
Clouds were crying , umbrellas were dashing
Still I stood , As I had an errand

Then I noticed a hand with a stick
Behind him was one more without it
Through the struggle , lost in the hurry
My empty hands gave them a sigh of relief

We juggled through the path ,
they muttered to the world
As all they wanted was , to be heard

Two minutes to notice , all it takes
You blessed with whole , what is at stake ??

 

 

 

The Emotions Of Strength

 

The cry of born baby is always fascinating
The cry of the growing baby is happiness of first walk
The cry of child is a playground wound
The cry of the boy are his high demands
The cry of the youth is his teenage problem
The cry of a guy is his lost love
The cry of man is his fate
The cry of an aged is his weak bones
THE cry for the person is for a lost life

     All cries are experienced
But to save are very handy
Depressed cries are the worst
But it strengthens your emotions like a burst
Each step gives you a skilled strength
But bottle of emotions still filled in heart
To conquer the bottle is difficult
But to flush out has to be the final result
The Emotions Of Strength are tough to battle with
But an ultimate part of body to fiddle with

Numbness Gone Wrong

IMG_0037

The cry of the baby is described to innocence,
that of a man sounds as a weakness

Insecurities to unveil is always a hard part,
To succeed in same would definitely be
a new art .

Despondence has become a lone friend
of mine
To turn him into foe , mite give me a new
lifeline .

Heart has grown cruel , I can’t feel any pain
Neither in sickness nor in happiness

Numbness gone wrong
I don’t know where I belong .

 

 

 

Morgan’s Are Back!!!!!

vlcsnap-2013-07-04-09h10m48s254

The much awaited season of the year is finally premiered . ‘A Beautiful Day’ episode’s name was hitherto ,a homicide by Dexter , sadly again witnessed by Deb .With La Guerta dead, Dexter breathed an easy life for six months as a dutiful father to Harrison . And back with the bang was he, holding parietal-occipital part of a woman in a crime scene. In half the episode Deb is high , as undercover handling matters in her own way ….voila she left the force to join a law firm . And Dexter unable to control his obsessed worry(ing) for Deb , ruins her cover . Dr Evelyn Vogel, a neuropsychiatric , fresh character is introduced. Woooo…Dexter is in trouble!!!!!…..Why???…She has studied the great brains of psychopaths . With strange revelation of her connection to Dexter . Now I know how much the viewers get angry for revealing the spoilers. So I am not extending their ‘connection’. So Watch out for Dexter S08E01 who haven’t watched yet. The only complain from my side to the writers is – Dialogues of Deb . They are f****** predictable ….I hope the viewers understood . Common !!! I need not have Dex’s mind to hack her password …*chuckles .

Doubts Cripple

MM900395769

 

 

 

 

What if are the two words
the mind always asks

You take a new step
Yet boggle there pops

A chill via body you
feel it in the heart
The voice of those
words become a
weak part.

Never let the ‘Doubts
Cripple’ is easy to pester
To start that battle is
difficult to muster.

Hypocrisy is a persona
in each one’s thee .
To hyperbolize in words
is the loose way of me .

Still with the write it
eases my impair
My goal to do the same,
for everyone in despair .

 

LEAN IN – SHERYL SANDBERG

lean-in_custom-575cb1cc7e2e0e704abfffbc2a0ce498dafad0f8-s6-c30

I am an avid newspaper reader. Long time back a very nice motivational article had come in the Economic Times with headlines-“Build Your Skills…Not Your Resume” , quoted by Sheryl Sandberg . In a niche it summed up the some leadership quotes and stuff. Till date whenever I feel low I go through that article .(I feel everyone should have something like this , it can be anything a book, a movie etc which will keep us optimistic). Anyway coming back to the point . After reading the book I realized that some of the points were from her book LEAN IN-SHERYL SANDBERG .

I was going through a low life (infact I am now a bit) and this book has turned out to be a savior . It has been a long time when I had read any book at one stretch . (Nowadays that’s more possible with sitcoms seasons) . It took me two nights with some interruptions to read the ebook. And the second I finished I ran to grab a copy from the crossword .(I got to have its hard copy )…something technology can never give (cuddle and doze off with).

I have never been a lover of non-fiction . I love to read management articles but books not much. Back then I have tried with Jack Welch ,Malcolm Gladwell etc but just couldn’t complete it …(Sorry no offence) The only book I remember finishing was The monk who sold his Ferrari. …Anyway again coming back to the point. I thought reading again would help me in writing the review in better way. But in each read ended up highlighting different quotes . …(So got more confused). I have never written a book review and this book left me pondering from where should I start if I want to . Because its difficult to leave anything . …(You ought to read the book). Still Here I start.

                          It’s a sort of women centric book with women issues . At times quite humorous. It highlights why women progress gets stalled in the corporate world and why men still run the world . Its not exactly her autobiography but a blend of her past work personal experiences, self-analysis of the public speeches given by her and other short accounts. Many statistical data’s are presented. They are more with concerned to US country . But India stats were frequently mentioned. (Hello There INDIANS did you know….

In India 11% seats in parliament are held by women.

A Meager 4% of the fortune 500 CEO’s are women .

Indian women hold 5% of director ships among the 100 companies listed on the BSE. 11% of the top 240 Indian companies had female CEO’s

In India about 13% of children live with one parent , usually a mother

In India , women do more work than ten times as much child care and nearly thirty times as much housework as men.

Each title of the book is a very apt and reasons out beautifully. She has tried to explain how work-life balance can be achieved without making any career sacrifices(especially women) and how equal parenting can lead to successful life. The book each man and woman should read it …(Highly recommended by me). The wisdom attained is insurmountable. Many critics have retorted and tagged it feminist , gender-issue based book ….I am like common dude have you read the book properly?? – when revealed the definition of feminism as

A feminism is someone who believes in social ,political and economic equality of the sexes” the stats increased from 24% to 65% .

Don’t we all are then? . There are many other quotes which gives you a wise laugh

LIKE – “Legendary investor Warren Buffet has stated generously that one of the reasons for his great success was that he was competing with only half of the population” OR another one

Where everyone of us are fraud and Fake it till you feel it strategy helps at times.

OR

The one where a women revealed something like this – “I shouldn’t confess it publicly but she puts her children to sleep in their school clothes to save 15 minutes of precious minutes in the morning.”

OR

Its heartbreaking to think one woman holding another back. There is special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.

The best one – Heidi/Howard case study of HBS …(People who don’t know this please read it on the net).

The (OR’s) continue with many other wise and inspirational quotes. …May be it will turn out as one of my new blog post. …(So read the book people) . Like I said before I have never written a book review and probably at the end I suck at it.   My intention behind it was to make this book known to as many people as I can . But I realized something – my tvhookedfigures have turned out to be in major number woman . ….I can’t help it .

I am waiting for Benedict alias Sherlock to return.

World’s Most Powerful Women

When in need of motivation, I back on inspirational quotes , inspirational people or an article read in the newspaper . The image of Forbes list of Most Powerful Women caught an eye and as it is said Rest is History…..NO!!!!!!!!!!! Its not, it just got converted to a blog post (lol) .

I took few random quotes (quoted) by them,from the net and presented here . Hope someone else might get motivated.2

Debate Enthusiasts

wtp2

 

After watching many ongoing political debates in India , I have always enjoyed watching offbeat but complex social issues bought up by shows like ‘We the People’ or  ‘Big Fight’ .

 Wedlock to Deadlock was one among such debates which I thoroughly enjoyed watching . Should 50% marital rights be given to the women during the time of Divorce ? What about the inherited property ? The debate started off lightly with several issues coming out . Barkha Dutt as usual had chosen an excellent debate panel . 

Divorce in a country like India has always been  considered a dreadful word . A social stigma !!!!

Several issues were discussed by the panel members starting from where women had helped the husband financially and was left penniless during the divorce, to the lawyers coming up with cases where a divorce couple are a part of joint family , so how the parting of the money should be considered? , Many interesting cases arose from audience panel : Where the women was beaten and thrown out of the house when pregnant (a girl child issue) , on the counter view a man being falsely accused in (attempt to  murder charges , dowry…etc ) by the wife when he decided to part ,due to incompatibility. The wife then becoming a U.S citizen and demanding alimony and not allowing the father to meet their daughter. Another audience asking why a simple communication won’t suffice and why the state is given so much power. Divorce finally been considered a tamasha in India  where they get locked up in litigation .

India being a land of villages , rural population is often neglected in such issues , to start something from scratch, leaving the husband , is difficult for rural women .The focus also shifted to equal rights and towards woman empowerment  and children to be considered a priority .  Solutions to make a women more self-reliant was discussed upon. Be it urban or rural-the livelihood and time frame of the marriage holds an important stake . If women are able to start-up on own then she should ….(it marks the beginning of self-reliance) , at the same time job opportunities should be provided to less fortunate .

Jaya Jaitley one of the panel members ended with a positive note  by telling : We should go into making strong marriages along with strong laws .

The amendments in laws are must . But a country with such diversity in all aspects , including divorce cases , which law would really equalize the matter ? That’s a big question to ponder upon .

People can share their thoughts and reviews  !!!!!!!!

Unknown ‘Silence’

My Blog post doesn’t go with my main blog name(tvhookedfigures)….but this was the only poem i have ever written seriously . So just thought of sharing it !!!! 

DSC00708Strange this word is sometimes I feel

Strange this word is sometimes what it depicts

Strange this word as sometimes it’s a prayer

Strange this word is as sometimes it kills

Strange this word is as sometimes it hurts

Strange this word is as sometimes it confuses

Strange this word is as sometimes we wish

Strange this word is as sometimes this helps

Strange this word is as sometimes its emotions

Strange this word is as sometimes its anger

But stranger is the meaning of it as 

Sometimes It expects to infer

Sometimes It expects to live with it

Sometimes It expects to die with it

Sometimes It expects to hide it

How I wish I could interpret this word

 How I wish all could inferred this word when required 

       And that’s how I feel strange as it is quoted to

                                 BE GOLDEN

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grey’s Anatomy S09E23

GA1-001

That was hell lot to take in one episode than expected. When Owen said ” A massive storm is coming “, guess he failed to mention it was an (emotional )Storm . It seemed like Shonda Rhimes had pressed a fast forward button.  It started with Alex consoling Joe after her fight with Jason. Then making us feel that Alex is about to kill Jason. Guess what, he has already landed up in hospital , brain bleeding…(Joe failed to mention that she had more than equally bruised him). The newbie craniofacial specialist ,Dr Lauren and Arizona behaving like school teens ,googling each other and finally ending up in bed after a successful operation . Jackson comparing Sloan with Lauren (I think writers were trying to tell viewers-‘Hey meet the female Sloan entering Calzona’s life’) . An unexpected proposal from Matthew to April reminded me of ‘Glee’ dancers , not to mention it was cute ones for crazy Kepner, leaving Jackson stormed . One happy moment!!!! , Grey’s baby is safe until next episode .  Owen in a two minds whether to be sad or happy for Ethan, who finally united with his father. Richard proved himself ,no one can handle Bailey better than me …poor Ross he had his surgery ultimately. Alex and Joe story was a little disappointment , as they yet didn’t express their feelings .  Next Episode is named as ‘A Perfect Storm’ …Spoilers are already out with speculations of whose life is about to end . Will Calzona survive their stormy relation ? What about Sofia? Will Owen and Cristina stop avoiding the baby talk ? Do you think Joe would go to jail ? What will happen to Meredith’s baby ? ….The storm is still not over . Well viewers wait for the next Thursday forecast.

CAN IT BE THAT SIMPLE

3IDIOTS

 

To the Indians this is a character which is quite famous to you . To the NON-Indians this is ‘Raju Rastogi’ a famous hindi movie character from a blockbuster movie 3 idiots . The image attached to this blog is the scene where he is giving interview for an engineering job. He is in wheelchair because he tried to commit suicide ,rusticated by the principal due to indecency. Still he managed somehow to turn out for the interview .

The whole point in telling this was : During the interview when asked about his accident , he bluntly recited his suicidal fling and expressed his fears facing the interview . The panel got impressed by his honesty and straight way handed over his appointment letter. Reel and Real are different aspects. Before facing an interview starting from questions like ‘Tell me something about yourself’ to ‘where do you see yourself down the 5 year’ , the questions have to be answered in a very cautious and precise manner . A set of rules are followed to avoid a pitfall. But the fact is it should actually go in a flow how depicted in the movie. Really how much does the rules actually help us?

The more you try to be someone else , more complicated and unsure you feel about yourself. Many books are also written on body language . And the way human psychology is explained through it is spectacular . But sometimes sitting with your legs cross can plainly imply ,you comfortable sitting with the position . The formal attire is given a huge hue and cry. Definitely it throws a professional image and makes you feel entering a corporate world, On the contrary eminent people like Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs have flaunted themselves in their cool blue jeans .

If you be yourself (as a whole ) during the interview , the process could go more smoothly and scope for improvements might increase .

Guess the situation is quite hypocritical where some rules ought to be followed . As I got to face interviews in the forthcoming events , I would try my best to apply the mixture of the ethics and my ideologies . And ya for the bloggers who haven’t watched the movie , don’t waste time , endless popcorn wouldn’t suffice for it. Enjoy the fun !!!!

The Mentalist….Season Finale

M

Of all the crime TV series i have watched , The Mentalist  by far has continued to raise it’s bar, consistently . Jane had to come to terms with disappointment when he realized his list of 7 suspects  is known to the clever Red John . Bob Kirkland was a nice trick . The deliberate scene of hand shake made us view him as prime suspect .  But he did broke into his dome to collect all the evidence. Is he one of the accomplice of Red John ? Who could have possibly reached his head and shattered his only good memory ?  There are many speculations on the internet with Jane being the Red John . Is he really that dark ? Does dark Jane really exist ? Bruno Heller is one hell of a creator. Season 6 is far way to come but the theories of Red John are already in high gear. 

Grey’s Anatomy S09E22

GA

After watching this episode ,The first thing i was eager to watch was The Next Promo. The emotional confusions in everyone’s relations can change the whole picture of next season .  It is getting more worse , complicated and fun at the same time to wait for :what will be next???? .  The episode started off usual with new patients arriving for emergency .  The entry of new character Dr Lauren least expected.  Alex avoiding Joe , Cristina confronting herself with changes in Owen ,  Arizona trying to control her emotions with the new doctor  , April as usual confused between Matthew and Jackson and the whole hospital running to cheer up Bailey . Derek getting worried what if his son turns out ‘to be a monster’ was the sweetest worry of all . The S09E23 shows Meredith falling off the stairs . Will any character die in the finale ? Will Alex and Joe finally become a couple ? Will Arizona cheat on Callie in the next season ? Will April and Jackson revisit their romance ? Will Cristina and Owen break-up ? All thee questions are too much to take . I just hope the viewers are not disappointed this time with how they ended (Sloan and Lexie) story . Well I guess that’s for the viewers to wait and watch .
