Sleep and mind

Feeling like your brain is “full” is totally normal, because it can be full from time to time. Learning new skills or talents takes up physical space in the brain. The brain naturally cleans up the garden each night when we go to sleep. About 60 percent of brain cells shrink up when we sleep, allowing our gardeners to get rid of the stuff we don’t need.

You create your own mind

Once you understand that you can literally force your brain to exist in a certain way, you start to realize that much of the world you see before you is simply the result of how you wish to see it. If you spend most of your time playing video games instead of doing your job, guess which one you’re going to be better at? We might not be able to control every little thing that happens to us, but we can control how it affects us and how we build neural pathways around it.

So, try it for yourself. Try forming positive thought patterns by focusing on the good things about your life and who you are, rather than all …


So there is a pink  rose and the Jasmine buds . I am loving watching the plants grow .
It was a single click and i got a good one !


Thought of writing about food .
Food is everything , that's why we work hard . We eat and feed our families as well .

At the age of 15 I had to live my life alone . I had to stay out and earn for myself and my siblings .

I started doing small time jobs . You name it and most of them I would have done . I had to stay with the worst of humans . I go for work at nights because I get extra paid . I kind off sleep in the afternoon .

I eat my breakfast at 12 pm, lunch at 6 pm and dinner at 2 am .

 My only food was noodles and carbonated drinks . I can't cook the noodles because I dint have a stove or we were not allowed to cook in the place where we stayed . So cut the noodles packet  , pour some hot water and the powder in it and keep it closed . It would be cooked after some time .

So going through all these ,what did I learn ?

1. I stopped drinking carbonated , I drink only home made fresh juices . I got one of the best juicer .
2. I don't eat junk such as pizza , chat masal…

How much !

I had a skype call with someone you don't know last night .

He was so much into troubles with his family . He has never done anything for himself to my knowledge . He won't even buy new clothes . He buys for others and say you all be happy and that's my happiness . He lost his dad when he was young . He takes care of his mother, wife and educated his brother . His brother dint get a job because of few health issues .He was totally upset, it was his dream and he couldn't study and that's why he educated his brother but that dint go well . So all together he needs only peace and happiness for now in his life .
He is the man of patience I would say .

Last night he had to send some money to his home for all the needs .
When he called me I asked him

How many lakhs you sent !!! ( this was for fun ) 

He was like a bright smile and Shilpa please tell that once again . It's nice to hear .

I told this line nearly 5 times !

He was like I wish this happens in my life for r…

Look into yours !

I never want them to praise me
Because I know myself
I never what them to appreciate me
I can boost confidence my own
I don't want them to say
I am beautiful
Because , I have  someone to say that  .
I don't want them to advice me
Because ,
I don't give advices to nobody
I hate them starring at me,
I am no different .
I have everything that you have
All that I want
Is shut your mouth
And look into your life
Not mine !


I never talk about my failures because I don't like talking my past.Only very close ones of mine know about it . But today I thought of writing how I see failures in my life.

What do I do when I  face failure ?

Failure comes in different ways , for some like me it's always failures I meet first , for some its failure at once . So you can't actually talk about the intensity of it .

The first thing I do when I fail is I stand in front of a mirror and cry . I see my eyes turning red and nose getting pink . My eyes get filled with a pool of water that doesn't drop out . I never blink , I just look into the mirror and ask myself did you fail ? Why did you ? Should you fail ? You should not . Get up and think what's next ?

I am thankful for all the failures I saw in my life . I know I am getting stronger every time I cry . Those tears have helped me a lot to succeed or think what can be done next .

Failure is an important factor of life . You must see failures and get t…

The best day !

This day can't be more better .

I always believe rather than porking your nose into others life doing good is far better . At least you will have a peaceful life .

Before I start writing let me explain few things so that you understand . I am trying my best to write it simple .

This is a holy month for us .We all pray goddess during this month and offer clothes , flowers, bangles . These are the all time items . Depending on how rich you are you can do whatever you want . So that's how it works .

I decided to go to that Durga temple and offer 21 plate of items to old ladies . Because I believe the blessings of old are always needed in life . I wore an ivory color saree with a pink blouse and left . I offered betel leafs, turmeric pieces , paku or supari, little flowers and few clothes . I dint keep money on it because money is not everything . This was my plate of items !

So this is how the day started , I stepped out of my house and an elderly man asked me money for eating a…

Pinky rose and what's behind ?

The pinky rose is blooming ! It's a rare one and doesn't happen to bloom soon . It's like 3 -4 flowers in a year .
Do you see a plant behind the rose ? I have no idea what it is . But I remember putting some seeds in it , I mean mixed seeds . It can be yellow or orange marigold or  Gomphrena globosa. Waiting to see what it is !

Seeing a flower bloom gives you hopes !

Small world

The world is so small at times ! I get this feeling when I meet people after years .
We were 5 staying in a same house in 2008 . We 5 were very good friends . I was the youngest among all and I was like their little sister . There is so much of memories associated with that house . Even now when I go India Naveen takes me to see that old house . Those memories ;)Though I was the youngest its me who got married first . All the 5 are settled abroad . All together a different life . We have never met after 2010 .
Few days before I got to see one of my room mate and got to know she stays next to my house back in India . I was super happy . We got back again and it was like , hi this is my husband , my mil etc etc .
Seemed to be funny for us but yea we are getting old and life changes .
Cherish it !!! Loving my neighbor
Loving my old room mate more !!

I have less friends but good ones and that's enough for me ! Peace ;)

The world is so small !!

Lost !

Those honey dripping brown eyes  Those dimples when you smile  Those twisted sharp teeth Those sharp eyebrows  Those Apple cheeks  Your long black hair  What more could I ask God ?  It's like damn I am lost ! 

Rebel language

Silence is so powerful,
Silence is loud !
Louder than everything in this world .
Being silent teaches you many things .
It teaches you to be patient and calm .
It helps you think so much,
It helps you learn life .
Silence can also bring people to you .
Silence is never quite !

I believe,

Silence is the language of a rebel !

I miss these

So this is my favorite . The tender coconut . In my old house we had seven coconut trees . I remember a guy coming every month and getting those coconuts out . We get 70 coconuts from one tree . I remember trying to climb the tree but I was left over with scratches :) never try climbing trees . I stopped it . I am only good at climbing gooseberry trees .
Today being in an other part of the world I can only think of all these . We get only Sri Lankan tender coconut here which would be yellow in color . I tried it but dint like . We get the frozen ones as well and I just hate it .

This is a picture I took when I went to India .

Do you like tender coconut ? Anybody missing it as I do ?

All I need

I lay down in my bed and think
Why it is only for me
What did we do wrong ?
Why God doesn't help me
Why I feel sad
Why I feel to see you
I miss you so badly
If you are there next to me
I have everything with me
All that I need now is you
Hoping for happy days
Will we ever see those days ?

Me !

This is what I drew at back of my diary with a pen in two minutes when I .. Thought about my life for a minute ! 

Only you know

You are the only one 
Who knows what's inside you  Nobody else  There would be people  Who tell you to quit  But don't . Only you know Your dreams  Your gut Your ability Your desires Only you can accomplish it  Not anyone else  So, do what your mind says  And you will win one day ! 


Oh my lovely whitey jasmine
You look cute and bright
I loved seeing you tonight
Love your fragrance
You are the most
Beautiful today !
Seeing you blooming in my balcony
Gives me so much of hopes for tomorrow !

Surprise !

So, the continuation of previous post . He got me these today ! Surprise .
When I have a gold with me what is the need of a gold necklace :)


So this is the first thing I did this morning . I drew this and went for brushing my teeth .

I normally have weird dreams . My dreams always come true .Likewise, my intuitions are also always correct . Don't know why , but from younger days itself it's like that . Everybody around me knows about this .

This is a necklace that I wore in my dream last night. Thought of sketching it so that it stays . I told Naveen that I had a gold necklace dream today .

He was like ... Huh !!!!

Astrology .

Thought of writing something about astrology . How many of you believe in it ?

We go to an astrologer only when our time is bad , like praying God .

Few points I believe in.

I won't say I don't believe in it . If I get a chance probably I would ask how things are . Good to know that's it .But my ancestors did believe in it .

My parents dint believe in it , they dint look into every aspect. They loved each other , got married . I still find many saying it's because they got married without beliefs their life ended in tragedy . I strongly disagree .

I believe , live everyday . Add life to your days not days to your life . I don't even have that so called jadhagam. I married someone younger to me . I believe you love each other live your life and move on . Whatever comes good or bad accept it and cross the bridge .

P.S -People and opinions differ !

What do you guys say ?  Do you have any experiences .

Onions ! Oh no !

How many of you cut onions ?
Is there anybody whose eyes doesn't cry while cutting ?

I never cut onions , Naveen does it for me always . I hate cutting onions .

Wish there was something to wear on eyes before cutting an onion so that my eyes doesn't cry .

Few told if you soak the onion in water and then cut it you won't get tears . I don't believe in it . If an onion is soaked in water it gets bad .

But there is nothing interesting without an onion in South Indian dishes . Anyhow , trying to find a way out .

If you have any ideas do post in and help me with these onions :)

I don't want my eyes and nose to cry :(

Own it !

“Failure is an event, not a person. Yesterday ended last night.”

This is something I learned in life . Failures are only events , nothing more than that . It's happened and you can't change it . You have to see what should be done next .

It might be a long process , so much of wait but think of the happiest moments that will come back to you . You will be a winner !

There is nothing more you can do than trusting yourself . Believe ! that's the best you can do . Nothing will happen to you .

The happiness you get after each and every small success is immense . You have to feel it to know the real truth .

Nothing worth having comes easy in life and if something comes easy it will not stay with you .

Own your success !
