Fall and Rise - Only to Soar High!

I've learnt, 

Not to give up everything in love, and most importantly, not to give up yourself.
To hold on to your self-respect, and let go of unnecessary guilt.
Not to beg till you fall face-flat on the ground, and if you do, then rise - determined to stay strong.
That some chain you down just to possess you and make themselves feel better, and that breaking free is your realisation point.
That after breaking free you keep in mind how the chain possessed you, and you avoid falling for the same type of chain again.
That the marks/scars left by the chain may - and will - take time to fade away, and that it is dependent only on you to apply the right medicines.
That putting yourself under the scanner is not the solution in love, and that the scanner will show the other person what he/she wants to see.
That sometimes it is better to break than to bend.
That sometimes tears are nothing but salt water for the other person.
That the other person does not deserve you and that you deserve the best one!
That some scars might not heal/fade away, and that they'll remind you of a lesson - though bitter - learnt.
That life is full of lessons to be learnt, mostly they'll be gorgeous and sometimes bitter.
That it is necessary to have an attitude, an ego and that they should be in the right proportion.
That first love is always memorable, also for the wrong reasons!
That if you step away, you should be determined to keep walking away.
That if you cross each other at any point, you can pass through the other person without a glitch and with a smile.
That you're not built or born to break, but to surprise yourself with your own strength.
That how much ever the world criticizes a woman for being complicated, each day you're proud to be one simple-uncomplicated soul.
That you deserve respect when you give respect.
That the other person should be proud to have you in his/her life, and not want to get rid of you or insult you.

My Prince - 3

When we go for a trip to a place closest to nature, and mostly untouched by humans -  I would like you to propose/confess your love at night, when those fireflies light up the surroundings.... A perfect setting for a proposal, a perfect place and the perfect 'us' :)

(Saw thousands of fireflies lighting up the trees at night around us in Sakleshpur. It is an inexplicable experience, but nothing to compare the romantic aura it creates! Post about the trip coming soon!)

My Prince - 2

When I try new things in life, however old I grow to try my hands on anything, I hope he appreciates everything right from scratch - the initiative, the efforts, the process, the end product! Even if he makes fun out of it for a while, I hope at the bottom of his heart he's proud of me and loves me for such a small thing :) Needless to say but, I'd be more than delighted if he takes part with me :)

My Prince - 1

Since I'm a dreamer and a romantic by heart, I obviously end up dreaming about my future man a lot of times! So I thought, why not put it in my open book here? :) Hence, I start with one of my many posts to follow, about the man I would like to call my better half! :)
I would be totally charmed by a man who would also ask me for a dance on the song 'Pehla Nasha', apart from western songs... :-)

Building designs!

During one of our late-night chats the other night, me and my sister were discussing architecture. We have a common hatred for glass buildings which come up any and everywhere. 

Well for starters, I don't know if it's a sign of 'development'. A posh building will be unveiled somewhere and it will be - glass. Duh! How is a glass building a sign of great architectural achievement? Be warned that this is a non-architectural, aam insaan woman talking here. So all I see in a glass building is just that. A square/rectangular building with that material all over. According to my knowledge, isn't that one of the reasons that the building gets warm from inside? And then we need AC's to cool it down. Plus the plain fact that there are not much brains required in 'designing' that glass building. 

What happened to the beautiful designs that we 'could' have? Also consider the point, that I'm not considering the cost factor here. Glass buildings might be cheap but they're not appealing. I fell in love with Hiranandani in Powai. Gosh! You enter the shops in such a happy state because the building is so darn beautiful! I'm sure the happy state helps them in sales ;) Anyways.... the point being, a person like me would love love to enter a building like that instead of a glass structure. Why can't malls and offices have that architecture? Wouldn't that design require much more brains that these ugly structures? Whatever happened to making a city look beautiful. 

Check that out! I think I would just like to roam around it for no reason as well. I guess that is also what is one of the most appealing factors for a city. I'm sure people would like to enter beautiful buildings in general. I envy those who work in offices inside Hiranandani. It'll definitely be one of the reasons to shoo away morning blues. And the fact about buildings with good architecture is that they grow beautiful as the grow old. They also have their own personality.

I just hope we design amazing buildings like these in India, phasing out glass buildings. It'll definitely make the cities and in turn the country look more beautiful! :)
