Advertising is a form of communication used to persuade an audience to take some action with respect to products, ideas, or services.

Some of the most hilarious advertisements, I’ve come across.

Begging is a talent!

Begging is just an easy task. All you need to do is make a poster and try being a li’l honest!

It is sure for hurdles to come on the feel and bumps to come between relationships.

If I sit here and categorize, the major problems that one comes across is:

-Communication

By communication I am here referring to both communication gap as well as day to day communications. Poor communication skills initiate a problem in any relationship. You can’t communicate while watching a sitcom, checking your BB, checking out pages online. In either of the above cases you seem least bothered in what you partner is talking and there she gets pissed.

-Money

This category of problem occurs mostly in people in live-in relations, or even amongst people whose relation is more money based. Usually one partner is a saver and one a spender, so here the conflict arises.

-Physical Intimacy

Even partners who love each other can be incompatible sexually. This might create issues, and it does. But common ‘you love her’, this shouldn’t make a difference. Sexual relationships problems can be solved by consulting a qualified therapist.

-Priorities

Priorities- this causes issues in every relation, from a two day relation to a happily married couple. It usually starts with questions like ‘who is that? How long have you been talking to her? Are her talks more important than mine?’  This usually happens when you spend less time with your partner and more with others, may be your friends or colleagues.

If you want your love life going, keep the focus on your relation. Relationships loose their luster very easily, so make yours a priority. Tell your partner how important she is in your life.

-Conflicts/ fights

Conflicts may arise from the smallest to the biggest think. Occasional conflicts are an inevitable part of a relation. But don’t let them increase. Clear them if they seem to rise.

-Trust

Trust is very important in a relation. Without this factor, called trust, your relation is going nowhere. Do you doubt your partner for something? Is there any behavior that is hindering your trust from your partner? Clear it out, talk to him. Trust me, a simple talk can clear a lot of problems.

Have You Ever Thought?

~How many times do you open the fridge when you really don’t want anything from it? And then come back again and again to open it?

~Why do you press the keys on the remote hard when you know the battery is weak?

~How many times do you switch lanes and the other one you left moves faster?

Love

What is love? Love is a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection. Love is the one emotion that has everyone mystified.  Love is an emotion has had more plays, songs, and stories written about it than anything else. Is is an emotion that has started as many wars as it has ended. There are many legends around this emotion, from the goddess Athena and Helen of Troy to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

Love is a symbol of eternity. It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end.

It is not often, that one experiences love. And ones who do, trust me you are very lucky.

There are a few very beautiful quotes on the same that I have come across. All of them are worth a look.

~You have to walk carefully in the beginning of love; the running across fields into your lover’s arms can only come later when you’re sure they won’t laugh if you trip. ~Jonathan Carroll, “Outside the Dog Museum”

~Infatuation is when you think he’s as sexy as Robert Redford, as smart as Henry Kissinger, as noble as Ralph Nader, as funny as Woody Allen, and as athletic as Jimmy Conners. Love is when you realize that he’s as sexy as Woody Allen, as smart as Jimmy Connors, as funny as Ralph Nader, as athletic as Henry Kissinger and nothing like Robert Redford – but you’ll take him anyway. ~Judith Viorst, Redbook, 1975

~When love is not madness, it is not love. ~Pedro Calderon de la Barca

~Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit. ~Peter Ustinov

~Love withers under constraints: its very essence is liberty: it is compatible neither with obedience, jealousy, nor fear: it is there most pure, perfect, and unlimited where its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. ~Percy Bysshe Shelley

~You know you’re in love when you don’t want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams. ~Dr. Seuss

~I learned the real meaning of love. Love is absolute loyalty. People fade, looks fade, but loyalty never fades. You can depend so much on certain people, you can set your watch by them. And that’s love, even if it doesn’t seem very exciting. ~Sylvester Stallone

~When you’re attracted to someone it just means that your subconscious is attracted to their subconscious, subconsciously, so what we know as fate is two neuroses knowing that they’re a perfect match. ~Jeff Arch, Nora Ephron, and David S. Ward, Sleepless in Seattle

~Love is a gross exaggeration of the difference between one person and everybody else. ~George Bernard Shaw

~When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible. ~Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally

~The way to love anything is to realize that it may be lost. ~G.K. Chesterton

~Love isn’t blind, it’s retarded. ~Don Foster and Susan Beavers, Two and a Half Men

The New Home~~Pune

“If I were asked to name the chief benefit of the house, I should say: the house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace.” -Bachelard, Gaston

My home in Pune is a beautiful place, everything in it. The greenery, the garden, the kitchen garden, of course being destroyed by my dog, Stacey, The stone look, The sliding roofs. There is something about this house that is different from all I’ve stayed so far.

So, there on Day One, I rolled my camera and was out clicking. Here are a few of the beautiful pictures I could collect. It looks aesthetic; trust me, every bit of it.

That marks the entrance towards the main door

                                                               The aged banyan Tree

The area in the Front- Tamarind, Guava, Neem, bushes and others trees i don’t no the names of

The lemon tree with a baby lemon

The ‘to-be’ butterflies

That’s the love of my life- My baby, in the garden

These flowers ❤

The photographs don’t seem to end, and my camera doesn’t seem to stop rolling even till date. I am in love with this place, my home!

I’m staring out into the night 
And trying to hide the pain
I’m going to the place where love
and feeling good don’t ever cost a thing,
And the pain you feel’s a different kind of pain
I’m going home to the place where I belong
where your love has always been enough for me…

How exactly would one define a relationship?  The condition or fact of being related; connection or association. In human, specifically a marriage, and in today’s generation words, ‘getting hooked up’.

Each relationship differs from every other. In short, the term relationship differs as to how one perceives the word and how he acts upon it.

A relation is not about you coming upto a girl/ boy and say I love you and then things go the way they were. Neither it is that you show  insane love to the girl for the first few months/ days, give promises and later it is none that you do, but all you do is ignore. No, this isn’t how it will work.

Trust me, 90% people talk to somebody to get into a relation, get to a level of physicality and leave her. Dude?  What? I thought you said you loved her. Is that how you display your love? Really? Probably, you never loved or I should say even liked her.

Most of the relations today are categorized as infatuations and not love. And agreed, they are infatuations. If I sit here to define love, it is eternal. It is divine. It is something that cannot be defined. How easy it is for somebody to say an I Love You. Its just a three letter word and it hardly takes a second. And how easily you buy it? A little drama from the other side, a few poetic lines, a few letters or mails, a fake display of I cannot live without you and there you go.

You float with the relation because the drama and the initial love showing and when you start feeling things going inept, you’d think ‘funny thing I never thought it would go this way.’

The most common reasons you’d get from the other sides and you’d be buying is I was too busy with work. What work, dude? Can’t you spare even a minute? Or probably there seems to be an issue with my phone. Oh really? Isn’t there anybody else having a phone near you? Or you have just one phone at place. Or the most common, I haven’t spoken to anybody else too. Oh yes! So did you say all that to me about love to everybody else too?

Another category of a relation is a long distance relation, which from my point of view doesn’t work in most cases. Talking out from my personal experiences and of others nearby, never even try to make it work. Just in case you are so determined to make it work, always have it planned. And make an assurance that the plan would work. Don’t make plans in the air, like we’d marry after xyz years. Or that we’d have a house here or all that crap. Trust me, it makes no sense. After few months he wouldn’t even bother about your health or whereabouts. Never buy things about long talked about promises. If he plans to do it, he wouldn’t really mention it 24*7. Most importantly, plan about the meetings. If he cannot meet you or you cannot meet him once a month or once in two months, no point. ‘Cause trust me, your relationship is going nowhere if he doesn’t feel like meeting you. If you remember he said you are the most important part of his life, for sure he said this at one point.

Relationship matters continues…
