Anjali-Rahul obsession

hum ek baar jeete hain, ek baar marte hain, shaadi bhi ek baar hoti hain… aur pyaar bhi ek hi baar hota hain 🥺❤️

And I am deeply in love with Rahul and Anjali ❤️❤️❤️❤️

They are undoubtedly the cutest onscreen couple I’ve ever seen.. and I’d die to recreate many scenes from their movies in my own life.I remember having crush on Shahrukh Khan early on in my life. He was my first crush. My mom tells me even as a little girl I used to jump with joy watching Sharukh on TV. I enjoyed watching his songs and later his movies.Yeah I know life is not a Karan Johar movie… But I cannot resist appreciating the beauty shown in those movies ❤️

I still remember that “tussi bade majakiya ho” scene from kabhi khusi kabhi gam.. and I loveeee Kajol’s acting. She’s undoubtedly the sweetest! And the way Shahrukh says many things just by the look in his eyes… makes my heart melt. Every. Single. Time.

Dosti ke alava bhi kuch rishtey hote hai … kuch rishtey joh hum samajhte nahi … kuch rishtey joh hum samajhna nahi chahte … kuch rishtey jinka koi naam nahi hota, sirf ehsaas hota hai … kuch rishtey jinki koi deewar nahi hoti, sarhad nahi hoti … aaise rishtey joh dil ke rishtey hote hai, pyar ke rishtey hote hai, mohabbat ke rishtey hote hai

Hayyyee!! The way Shahrukh says this to Kajol, looking into her eyes.. ❤️

Rahul and Anjali from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai are justttt adorable. It shows the transition of friendship to love (which happens almost always) but how the situations turn out to be and they get seperated.

tum paas aaye.. yun muskuraye.. tumne na jane kya sapne dikhaye… Ab toh mera dil.. jaage Na sota hain.. kya karu haaye.. kuch kuch hota hain”

I still feel nostalgic whenever I hear this song.

When I watch those movies now I literally react as if I am standing there in front of them and I just want to tell what’s going to happen and pass comments like you do while watching cricket match. And on some scenes I do react as if I’m Kajol and SRK is saying those lines to me… Sounds cheesy I knowww.. But for those who don’t like this cheesy stuff – kuch kuch hota hain.. tum nahi samjhoge 😌


I know movies are lot like fantasies and things are not so perfect in reality. But that’s okay, I don’t have unrealistic expectations from my life and I understand situations get complicated. But whenever I watch those movies I like to loose myself in their world and escape reality for a while…..So we can say this is just a harmless genuine obsession!

40 rules of love

I am getting more and more interested in spirituality these days. When you start thinking about “whys and hows” in life, when you get curious about how it all works, you find yourself getting attracted to spirituality.

And as you read more n more about spirituality you get your answers and learn the right way to think about certain things..

To be honest with you guys, I never really thought I would ever be so much interested in spirituality. I have always been the girl who believes in science and ‘the things she sees’. So being interested in spirituality, something you can only experience by feeling and believing was new and to be honest scary for me.

There are still some concepts in spirituality that I cannot find the right way to implement in today’s world. Some concepts do seem good in theory but don’t seem logical in practice. I know I still have a long way to go.

But you know what, I’m liking it. I am enjoying the journey of figuring out all this spiritual stuff and exploring a new world with different experiences.

Somehow, spiritual talk feels right..

Okay so I don’t want to sound boring right now. I just want to share with you guys 6 nuggets of wisdom I gained from the book 40 rules of love by Elif Shafak.

Destiny doesn’t mean that your life has been predetermined. Therefore, to leave everything to fate and to not actively contribute to the music of the universe is a sign of sheer ignorance. Your destiny is the level where you will play your tune. You might not change your instrument, but how well you play is in your hands.

– Elif Shafak, The forty rules of love

If you want to strengthen your faith you will need to soften inside. For your faith to be rock solid, your heart needs to be as soft as feather. Through illness, accident, loss or fright, one way or the another, we all are faced with incidents that teach us to become less selfish and judgmental and more compassionate and generous. Yet some of us learn the lesson and become milder, while others end up becoming harsher than before. The only way to get close to Truth is to expand your heart so that it will encompass all humanity and still have room for more Love.

– Elif Shafak, The forty rules of love.

The past is an interpretation. The future is an illusion. The world does not move through time as if it were a straight line, proceeding from past to future. Instead time moves through and within us, in endless spirals. Eternity does not mean infinite time, but simply timeless. If you want to experience eternal illumination, put past and future out of your mind and live within the present moment.

– Elif Shafak, The forty rules of love

How we see God is a direct reflection of how we see ourselves. If God brings to mind mostly fear and blame, it means there is far too much fear and blame welled inside us. If we see God as full of love and compassion, so are we.

– Elif Shafak, The forty rules of love

Patience means to be farsighted enough to trust the end result of a process. It means to look at the thorn and see the rose, to look at the night and see the dawn. Impatience is to be so short-sighted as to not be able to see the outcome. The lovers of God never run out of patience for they know time is needed for crescent moon to become full.

– Elif Shafak, The forty rules of love

The quest for love changes us. There is no seeker among those who search for Love who hasn’t matured on the way. The moment you start seeking Love, you start to change within and without.

– Elif Shafak, The forty rules of love


If you have time, I do encourage you to read 40 rules of love. It’s a wonderful book. Even if you’re not so much into spirituality, you will enjoy the stories. I especially love the way it’s written from different character’s perspective. A good read overall.

Hope you’re all doing well. Take care friends, stay safe! ❤️

Love and Rumi 💕

Whenever we manage to love without expectations, calculations, negotiations, we are indeed in heaven

Rumi

In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest, where no one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that light becomes this art
-Rumi

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it
– Rumi

The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere they’re in each other all along Rumi

I was dead, then alive.

Weeping, then laughing.

The power of love came into me

And I became fierce like a lion, then tender like the evening star
-Rumi

To Love is to be God. Never will a Lover’s chest feel any sorrow. Never will a Lover’s robe be touched by mortals. Never will a Lover’s body be found buried in the earth. To Love is to be God.
-Rumi

Goodbyes are for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as seperation

-Rumi

This is love : To fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally to take a step without feet.

– Rumi

Remember. The way you make love is the way God will be with you.

-Rumi

Wherever you are and whatever you do, be in love

-Rumi


I’m currently reading this fantastic book called 40 rules of love. It’s about Rumi and Shams of Tabriz and their divine love. I have just started reading so I can’t say much.. but this book has really captivated me.

What’s the best book you’ve read about love? Have you read this one?

Beauty of love

How do you know when you’re in love?

Maybe you know it when you close your eyes and you smile because you see his face.. his adorable face.. his soft lips.. his lovely eyes.. you also feel his kind, beautiful heart and feel extremely grateful for every single moment you’ve shared together

Maybe you know it when your heart aches when you see him cry, when you want to do everything you can to make his pain go away but you cannot do anything right now.. so you offer him hope.. and you pray for him with all your heart.. and sometimes just sit with him and share the pain

Maybe you know it when he cares for you genuinely and all you can do is feel grateful for his presence, for his love

Maybe you know it when after a longgg tiresome day, all you want to do is hear his voice and talk to him, be in his arms and then somehow everything seems to be okay..

Maybe you know it when he supports you and encourages you in such a way that you feel more of yourself when you are with him.. there comes this time when you actually start loving yourself more because you are in love with him.. you slowly start becoming a better person and growing in love

Maybe you know it when you realise his happiness matters the most.. when you both start making small sacrifices to see each other happy.. like his happiness is related to yours.. when seeing him happy makes you forget everything.. it’s almost as if world is moving in slow motion and you feel and enjoy the moment you both are together and happy.. and you just want to pause this time.. forever..

6 letter word that has my heart – DISNEY

When i come home, tired and exhausted
I see Mickey mouse cusion right there smiling at me.
I hug him and feel better. His face is something i can never get tired of looking at. Looking at him i always end up smiling.

On days like this, where nothing feels right, everything is so uncertain, when i dont even want to get out of bed, i hear Cinderella saying “no matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dream that you wish will come true” and that comforts me a little

I know there aren’t any magical instances in life and life is not a Disney movie.. but in many ways, it is.

Sometimes we are Cinderella and we need to believe in our dreams. We need to remind ourselves to be kind and brave, even when everything around us seems harsh. We need to make sure we let our real selfs be seen and heard, because that’s the greatest risk we will ever take.

Sometimes we think of Miguel and remember to prioritise our family first. When days seem dark, Dory tells us to just “keep swimming”.

Spoiler alert – Frozen 2 teaches us how to just focus on doing the next right thing when you feel lost.

Anna and Kristoff taught us that relationships don’t need to be filmy, sometimes they are messy and real. Olaf showed us who’s the cutest snowman ever…

Sometimes when i focus too much on outer beauty and get conscious, Belle reminds me that true beauty lies within and that true beasts are sometimes the most beautiful looking people.

When i look at Mulan i feel inspired to give my best, even when people don’t belive in me, she teaches me to belive in myself.

Rapunzel pushed me to leave my comfort zone and chase my dreams. I could relate to “all those days watching from the window….”

On many occasions i need reminders by Pooh. “Sometimes the smallest things end up taking the most space in your heart”
“A friend is one of the nicest things you can have and the best thing you can be”
“The things that make me different are the things that make me, me”

When i own my house, i want to decorate it with lots of disney items. They won’t just be things, they’ll be my adorable possessions. It might not seem like it, but in a way they’ll help me make it through.

A book that taught me what is love

The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.

– The Notebook

Love..

Whenever i hear this word, the first name that comes to my mind is Noah-Allie.

I will be honest with you guys.. i didn’t really know what love truly is or how it really feels like to be in love until i read The Notebook.

I didn’t plan on falling in love with you and i doubt if you planned on falling in love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us.

– The Notebook

From start till end.. it holds your attention and you can’t help but feel a small part of love that Noah and Allie feel for each other.

The story starts with an old man in a hospital who shares thoughts about his life and his beloved. It all starts with a notebook.. a notebook which has captured their memories, their pure, eternal love.

You are the answer to every prayer I’ve offered. You are a song, a dream, a whisper and i dont know how i could have lived without you for as long as i have. I love you Allie, more than you can ever imagine. I always have and i always will.

– The Notebook

Reading that book really made me feel that perhaps there’s nothing better in this world than loving someone with all your heart and soul. There’s nothing as beautiful and as satisfying as loving someone and be loved in return. It taught me what it means to love someone unconditionally with all your heart.

There are so many books written about love, there are also some books that maybe misguide you or plant a wrong idea of love in your mind. For me, reading this book felt like understanding true love.

So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be really hard! We’re gonna have to work at this every day, but i want to do that because i want you. I want all of you. Forever. You and me… Everyday

– The Notebook

I have cried many times while reading the book.. the letters they wrote for each other, the love they have for each other, the way they struggle to be together, all that makes my heart melt.

When you read the book, it just feels right. The way Nicholas Sparks has written it is outstanding!

While reading that i could actually connect to the characters and understand their emotions. That’s the thing about Nicholas Sparks’s books – he tells you everything about the character, you know why he is the way he is and you could really feel him.

You are every reason, every hope and every dream I’ve ever had and no matter what happens to us in future, every day we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours.

– The Notebook

For me, Notebook is the best book on love and romance I’ve read till date. And it will always be special 💖

I haven’t really written a book review before and I don’t know how to articulate a book perfectly but i had to write about this one, because Notebook is ♥️.

I hope you read it at least once in your lifetime and more than that, I hope all of us get to experience love so pure and true.


Have you read The Notebook? Or any other book of Nicholas Sparks?

What’s your favourite quote from the book?

I’d ♥️ to know! 🙂

Him♥️

i fall for him when he calls me “princess”

i fall for him when shows kindness for humans and animals alike

i fall for him when he knows me more than i understand myself

i fall for him when he genuinely shows interest in things i love

i fall for him when he is angry and then even more angry coz he can’t stay mad at me

i fall for him when he touches me without using his hands

i fall for him when he tells me he would still love me the same even when i make a mess

i fall for him when he understands the pain I’ve been through and promises me a “happily ever after”

i fall for him when he understands and supports my passion

i fall for him when he encourages me to be the best version of myself

i fall for him when he smiles and all my worries melt away

i fall for him with my heart and soul

Present

Sometimes when i think about future and get scared,

I think about present and thank God

I try not to miss today’s sunshine,

While worrying whether I’ll see it again in future
