the Alchemist – for the second time

The title reveals it all, yes I am on to it for the second time – The Alchemist. The honest reason to get back to it for the second time is, I have read it long 3 years back and hardly remember it now,moreover I was lacking it a little – The motivation. For the first time it was as good as a bouncer ball but for this time I am able inculcate it and hope I’ll make most out of it. Just listing out some of the great lines from the book from the part I am done with :

  • Maktub” (It is written)
  • When you really want something, the universe always conspires in your favor.
  • It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.
  • The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.
  • The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.
  • Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.
  • “Why do we have to listen to our hearts?” the boy asked-
    “Because, wherever your heart is, that is where you will find your treasure.
  • Intuition is really a sudden immersion of the soul into the universal current of life.
  • There is only one way to learn. It’s through action.
  • And, when you can’t go back, you have to worry only about the best way of moving forward.
  • You must always know what it is that you want.
  • The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world, and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon.
  • The secret is here in the present.
  • To realize one’s destiny is a person’s only real obligation.
  • He hadn’t a cent in his pocket, but he had faith !
  • It is bound to come a moment when what seems close is still very far away.
  • Life is really generous to those who pursue their Personal Legend.

I want to back to it – reading,reading and a lot of the same. Signing of on the note to my (lazy,procrastinating) soul that I will take this up seriously now.


happy diwali…!



Festive fragerance – I can already smell it, do you?

I know it’s almost a week more for that day when festival of lights is going to start, but I have already started feeling that festive thing inside.I don’t know if its my psychological concern or it is there in the air actually,but I can smell it and I am loving it. Its gonna be light and bright all around. Air itself seems to be carrying some gaseous contents of joy, bliss,enthusiasm, ain’t it?

This is the very festival which is awaited year-long – right from the last day of it to the its first day of the next year. We celebrate the victory of good over the bad,victory of light over the dark. And this very reason of celebration makes Diwali mine favorite amongst all Indian festivals. Well its something different for me this year as I am bringing a journey to an end before the Diwali is to start and would be starting the new one post Diwali.(Story later). Though it is not like the journey which is being brought to an end is bad or dark but I want the new start to be bright for sure. Okay back to Diwali now –

Market place here is all decorated with lanterns of various sizes and shapes. Beautiful they are..! I am eager to post the snaps of the one that we would be hanging in our house.  

And this is reminding me that I am yet to buy the one. 😦 OMG so many things to take note of – the earthen lamps, rangoli colors and the list continues with the girly stuff. You people wont find crackers listed here as to be honest I am afraid of them and I prefer celebrating echo friendly festivals. Btw how you people are up with your Diwali shopping? Keep posted of how it is for you.

This again a just dropping by post as that what time is permitting me to do. But I just so wanted to write and that’s it..! Wish you all wonderful people out there a very happy,prosperous and safe Diwali in advance…! And I’ll be right back with a another proper festive Post..! Till  then have a great time….!  🙂
