No Goals–> Couch Potato

The ‘no-goal’ decision taken in my previous post Do we always need to have a goal?  is not working for me.

I tried hard to not to pick up a goal and lived like that. But I realized that without a goal, am pretty much a couch potato (Useless).

So like the comments on my post about -Short and long term goals, I’m going to do the exact opposite of what I started out to do. I am going to create some short and long term for myself:

  • Going to learn a new language: I always wanted to learn a new language. So I will just randomly pick on one language and try to learn at least the basic syllables so that I am able to, at least, converse at a basic level. Are you getting a Geek alert from me ?? Sorry am not one!


  • Learn to be with a pet: I know you’ll be thinking what a weird person. I must tell you I am literally afraid of all kinds of pets. So I am going to be with a pet and be very friendly with it. Fingered crossed !Will complete this without freaking out.


  • Learn a musical Instrument: This will go into my long term plan, as I know from my experience that learning a musical instrument takes practice -lots of it. So I have a keyboard at home, I’ll get it from my hometown when I go for Christmas. So sadly, it will shift to next year.


  • Go for morning walk: I have always been very health conscious. Evening jogs are my favorite. But recently, because of my work that is not possible and I am not a morning person. So somewhere drawing a line between my laziness and my work life, I’ll get up at 7:00am for morning walk from Monday (I can sleep till then, a girl needs to have her reward right?)


These are the goals that I can think of right now. It will evolve, I know with time, as I grow, as I go to new places and as I get to know more people .

Let me know about your goals and your struggles surrounding it. Will love to hear from you guys.


Foggy touch

He comes near me like a foggy morning

The chill which he brings with him

calms and scares me

want to hold on for a minute more, if not more

but he has already left

leaving me behind

to think about him every second of the day

Hampi, City of ruins

I have never been the one to appreciate monuments. Don’t get me wrong..Oh Yes! I do appreciate history, but somehow i have always been a person who like green more.

But snuck away in a small village Hampi, the ruins of the ancient city does remind one of the glorious times, it had seen in its days.

Musical pillars, Gold trading markets, stone chariots and temples dedicated to different gods makes one think about the people who would have once walked those paths, who had been there thinking they are in the safest places of all. And I ? Well, I stood there filling in the intricate designs, the creativity and plain genius of the architects.

If you are one of those people who loves monuments, you should go to this place.
