Some Weird Facebook Friendships:

Image courtesy: Facebook

Facebook in itself is a boon. No question about it. But friendships on Facebook do get a bit weird sometimes.
Through Facebook I have been able to get in touch with many people, whom otherwise I would have never even heard about.
I get to hear from people who were part of my thoughts and life for a very long time.
I get to know how life is treating them and where life has taken them. All said, these friendships take a weird turn sometimes. You wonder what to call these people. Are they really friends???

I will tell you about some of my weird friends....

1) People add you as friend and then ignore you completely. You begin to wonder why they added you in the first place. Weird!!!

2) Your classmate with whom you studied for years together, acts like a stranger on Facebook and ignores your comments or does not ever reply to your messages or chat.
 O.K, you may say you were busy at the time, when I posted the comment or messaged you, but I get to know you have seen the message or the comment.
I mean, how much time will it take to reply to a message or click a like on the comment I posted?

I click ‘Like’ on all posts which I really liked and comment when I feel like it.
It is common courtesy Friends

3) Random guys add you as friend and then pester you with messages and pings.
I hate this and try not to accept such requests. I block these weird guys entirely. I prefer to remain offline in chat these days because of you…

4) Your so called friends does not acknowledge any of your posts on your timeline, but when you meet or talk to them later, they confess how much they loved your posts and are looking forward to see many in future.
Dear friends, if you really liked my post, there is a Like button just below it, which if you click, I will get to know you liked it. Simple!!

5) People who become your friends just to get something done. I have seen many such fake friends.There was this lady, who used to comment on my every painting or portrait and then message me continuously to draw her portrait.

 I didn’t know her in real life. She was a random stranger whom I had met through my art page.The day I drew her portrait she pinged me with Thank You messages and how much she liked it and so on.

Then one day, out of the blue, she unfriended me. Before she did that, she deleted almost all of the comments which she had posted on my wall or paintings, which made my replies to these comments look as though I was talking to myself.

How much more weird can it get?

For people like me, who value friendships, Facebook has given me back many long lost friends.
If only these weird friends stopped being so weird.
Please unfriend me if you belong to any of these categories. I am frustrated with the weird ones.

But if you are one of my friends, who pep me up with a ping or encourage me with your comments, this post is a Thank You message to you.

Remain my friend Forever…

Angels !!

Angel : A digital  photo manipulation I did.

Do angels really exist?
I believe, yes….

Not in the way that they are usually portrayed, as in the above photo, but in the human form.

Didn't an angel called mother, take care of us till we were able to eat, walk and take care of ourselves?

Wasn’t the angel called father, who took care that we had all the basic necessities in life?

Did you have an angel called brother or one called sister who hovered around showering you with love and protection?

And the angels called teachers; weren’t they the one who guided us and taught us lessons we had never forgotten?

And what about the angels called friends, who come unexpectedly into our lives and stays for a reason or for a season, but makes us laugh when we don’t even want to smile?

Yes, Angels do exist.

And when a stranger helps you out when you were helpless, you think he/she was an angel send by god to help you.

The lady in the bus who gave you seat when you were struggling to balance your grocery bag, kid and purse…Wasn’t she one too?

How about the man who pulled you back ,when you were crossing the road carelessly, unaware of the car that was fast approaching?

And the husband, who works hard to provide food,shelter and clothing for you and family?

And the wife, who after toiling hard at office, then works late until night to ensure that her family have  proper food and clean clothing ?

The housewife, who becomes everything to her husband and kids starting from being a cook, cleaner, teacher and guard?

And the neighbor who came with a bowl of food when you were sick and hungry?

And the small kid who smiled at you, when you were sad and thought the whole world hated you?

And the doctor who came to attend to you, even though he had finished his duties for the day?

Yes, they all were angels.

You won’t know when and how they will come into your life. They will come and touch you, in their own unique way, calming down your racing hearts and creating memories that last a life time.

And as time passes, unknown to yourself, you become an angel to many; as a mother/father, brother/sister, friend, teacher, wife, husband and in many other myriad forms.

So, there we go.

Angels do exist after all.

 To whom did you become an Angel today?

Drugs... A dark angel

In the arms of an Angel....

One awesome song and an awesome movie...

This song sung by Sarah Mclachlan originally was used in the movie The city of Angels.

The Singer had written it in memory of Jonathan Melvoin who had died in a hotel room after heroin overdose.
The Angel that the singer refers to are drugs which many singers/ artists depend on to cope with fame, tension and success.

We do have many tragedies in the field of singing like Elvis Prestly and Michael Jackson who supposedly died from drug overdose.

When success comes overnight, some people turn to these dark angels called drugs for help. By the time that they realize that the angel wings which have been giving them divine high moments are dark and tainted with death, It is too late.

Let us pray that we don't lose any more talents to these dark angels.

Be aware...

Love stories: Happily ever after or Tragedy?

Sometimes we come across ordinary people with extra-ordinary love stories. Stories which change our age old beliefs and perceptions about love; some of them leave us with a heart ache that lasts long. Some fills us with positive thoughts. I prefer the latter.

The kinds of stories that touch my heart usually are of the same sort. One in which the hero and heroine undergoes the pang of separation after being truly and madly in love. The ones where the protagonists show unwavering love for each other and fate plays hand in bringing them together.

I do hate tragedies like plague. So if I get news that a particular novel or movie is a tragedy, I just don't waste my time on it.
If by chance I read one such story which leaves me sad at the end, I avoid reading other novels by such authors.
I mean, they are getting to play the role of god for the characters they create. So why do they waste time and energy, creating a story that leaves behind a heart ache, when he/she could easily have turned it around.

May be you people think I am a bit weird. May be I am.

After all, the greatest lovestories were tragedies. Romeo Juliet, Anthony and Cleopatra, Wuthering heights, Titanic, Othello, Tess o' dUrbervilles... the list is endless. And tragedy is, I have read all of these. They made me believe love stories were always tragedies. I remember reading tragedies during my teenage one after other. They left an indelible mark on my thinking. I used to believe it so strongly that I feared love in every way. So even if I felt a small love budding inside, I was careful to crush it without a second thought.

I really prefer stories with a positive ending. Almost all Jane Austen Novels, The scarlet pimpernel, Jane Eyre, Arms and the many. Now my diet of novels strictly belongs to this genre. If the novel I am reading end up as a tragedy, I feel deprived of my money and time.

So authors, if you want me as your fan, write one with a happy ending. When you play god, become a benevolent one please....
