So many of us are living two lives. One- on Internet and the other — ‘whatever remains from it’. There are people who spend a staggering 8-10 hrs online every day. That’s like – the whole of their productive day. Being online is fine. But how much of it is spent on social media? If it is more than an hour, there’s something wrong with you! This blog post is a humorous take on those hours you spent on FB, outraged and enraged over nothing, and 12 very simple ways of limiting social media time.
I am very sure this blogpost is going to disappoint one community – the residents of e.g. ‘XYZ Boys Hostel for Engineers’ who started reading this- hoping it to be a violent act of ‘Imagineering’ with pics from the movie as the name of the post.
So! Guys- what HAPPENings are HAPPENING on the ‘HAPPENING’ front of your Life? If not much- maybe you are NOT doing the NEW. You are just stuck with enacting ‘Your ONLY Life’; in a very ordinary way, yet looking for ways of living a better life. Ain’t gonna happen my friend, because, maybe you are feeling ‘USELESS’ because YOU are using it (brain) LESS. How can the results CHANGE; if the inputs do not CHANGE? Maybe it is time for you to- Do the NEW.

After all – if someone were to video record your day- would you feel PROUD seeing the recording? If your typical days signify a ‘sense of permanent urgency’ & ‘endless distractions’- Read on …
Very few Love stories in this ‘FB generation’ grow old. The infant mortality rate of love stories is the highest these days. People are confusing ‘Relationships’ with ‘Pre-Paid re-charge cards’. Unfortunately — ‘love’ these days serves the purpose of an exterior emulsion paint: ‘Baahar kee deewar badhiya — andar seelan & deemak’ etc. And the question they ask is -“Bhaiya yeh deewaar TIKTI kyun nahi hai?” In such situations, sometimes when seriousness doesn’t work, humor does. This is my attempt at humorous and funny reasons to move on from a relationship – when you know it has run it’s course. It delves into the unmistakable signs that the end is near, and ways to move on happily. Dig in!
You may ask, what makes me qualified to say I’m going to give you the best relationship advice ever! And you would be right too. But I have my share of trysts with the ladies and I have also been married for the last 11 years. Good experience no? 🙂
Asha Bhonsle & Parveen Babi sang it right -way back in 1982:-
Jawaani jaan-e-man haseen dilruba
Milein do dil jawaan nisaar ho gaya
Shikaari khud yahaan shikaar ho gaya
Yeh kya sitam huwa
Yeh kya zulam huwa
Yeh kya ghazab huwa
Yeh kaise kab huwa
Na jaanoon main na jaane woh, AAha…
