THE END!

Short Story
“The End”

The End!

The End!

“Twice bitten once shy”

The never give up attitude never left him.
For now, it seemed fun.

He felt like a pro.
Juggling around his heart and finding a new person to mend it!

It was much better than watching others.

There was a sense of satisfaction of having tried, than regretting of never doing it!

He smiled. He never won. But he won over his fears..
Once touted as the one who will never dare, to the one who never feared!

He smelled a sense of achievement.
He smelled the victory cry!

Some months before he had never thought what he could do..
It was beyond his imagination..

“But a gesture of love, can ignite a person, sometimes consuming him, to become that!”

Back as he saw, love was not the same as said..

It had its own highs and lows..

“Love is not for the one blinded in lust, Love is for the ones who enjoy the pace of it!”
“Love reveals itself. Love finds YOU! You don’t find your love..”

One find day, Love will find YOU!
It will embrace you so tight, that the whole universe will seem filled with it.

Love has it power. Misuse itย  and you lose it.
Love opens up your heart. It lets you play with the heart.

“Love is being silly. Love is respecting. Love is commitment. Love is a beautiful feeling..”

Try to hold it and you will lose it..
You cannot maintain love, you can only let it BE!

Love can empower you enough to face the criticisms, it can fight it alone!

Love can give you a sense of ownership of the other person..Something that causes most break ups..
Too much of it, and you screw up the whole setup of love..

“Love it, but don’t love it enough to damage it by yourself..”

Here he was, seeing the power of love, and its downfall!

Staring at the sky he was amazed, it was full of stars.
He could feel that, When love was right there, he never sensed it, but now with her gone, he enjoyed the darkness.
There were those stars which she gave,”the snippets of love” ๐Ÿ™‚
Something, he chose to treasure and thank her for..

The feeling of love had subsided.. He was quiet..

He felt no urge to make a move himself..He sat there, Busy joining the pieces of his heart..
Carefully, bringing them together.

“You don’t find people. They are meant to find you. For a reason, so much beyond your reason, but with a definite purpose.They might not exhibit any purpose, yet establish over time.”

This was one such instance.. Someone found him, but not for the reason he felt betrayed for..

Just a casual meet. Again. Over the world wide web..

The world wide web is funny.. It lets you showcase a part of you that you choose to show. It never shows the part, you always want to hide..
And yet we choose to believe that story.. Not, that we do not understand.. But there is a slight hope, what if? What if i can change it for the betterment of us both?

What if, this is what the other never thought of? That it can be better?

“Hope. Faith can make the worst of the crimes. Like taking a risk to do the same thing that led you to a mistake.”

Happens.

She looked stunning than the previous one. He was bowled.
She was friendlier and cheesier in her talks..
He was keeping her at bay. He never landed on the harbor initially. Observing the steps. Was it okay to dock? Or he should continue to sail ahead?

He never wanted to. But Hope? Faith?
He was a never give up guy!
He went with a precaution to himself.. He wont enter the territory to get lost! He agreed to his sane side!

But then, he changed sides.
He broke his protocols and became comfortable with her talks..
He never took it as true, although she hinted her in a first few talks. She loved to toy around the guy’s emotions.. Yes. He was emotional with the scars in!

But he was determined. To just hang around and stick to the precautions! Not knowing, the scars were still fresh!
She lured him by her talks.. He got caught. Now here he was, completely in her custody!
She won him. He lost himself in her.

But this was something different.. He could not meet her. She stayed miles away.
Oh God. This was a long distance relationship. He knew fully. Yet he took the risk!

He loved her talks. He imagined her smile. The same as was in the photo she posted.
He fantasized being with her, sitting besides and talking the same way as on phone..

Those days, he did not have plan to call her at affordable rates.. He went beyond.. He found one to talk to her as long as he wanted..

“Love is Being Mad.. It can literally make you do things, you never imagined!”

Sometimes though it comes out as better!

Long distance relationship is risk oriented..

There is no presence. and presence does it all.
Words hardly live up to. They just guide to fantasies. But presence! Presence makes it a reality!

Presence is what keep the fire in the relationship..It keeps it lit.

With lack of presence to just lit that love is not easy..
He felt the pinch. She was though, as she mentioned casual. She hinted. He never listened to that..

He was now completely lost in fantasy through her words..

A month and a half, he spent like that. He called every time. She never took that initiative..

He was out on a vacation… He informed her.. She kept being casual..

“Friends define life. They treat you beyond what you are. A side you never discover, they will make you explore that. Friends do that!”

A gala time being away. His new love life was now a topic of hot discussion. They talked over and over and saw him smile at her mention..

Back from the vacation, he tried to contact her.

She was gone! No return calls, messages, not even ONLINE!

He became curious and persistent in asking. He was being genuine.

It seemed like a lost signal. He could not trace her beyond that number. She refused to be traced too.. Shying away being ONLINE too!

He had to practice respect. He had to give her space. He chose to be committed with a slight tinge of knowing she has left him!

But he refused to believe until it were her words.

His birthday came. She wished him. He became hopeful but not for too long.She chose to be away!

One day, she decided, she came for a chat, She blurted finally.. She was already in midst of a complication, her feelings, her desires!

She was in midst of something. She was not a committed person. She loved to toy around. Some of it, made things complicated for her..

He thought maybe she sensed i was genuine and did not wanted to let me in. Also they never met!

“To lend space in heart is not so easy!”

What if you choose to take it for granted?

“NO!” She blurted out, “I am NOT your girlfriend!!”

He was not shaken that much as he was the previous time..

He decided. There was nothing on this path much to explore..

He called it “THE END!”

He chose to not explore it in the way he was doing it. He knew there was much more to life than just wandering carelessly like that..

He chose to gracefully part ways with the path..

Although many chances came,time and again, but he choose to not follow that path again.. Until as they say.

“Love FINDS YOU!”

“How to Write Effectively” – Startup Guide for anyone wanting to write.

Penning down some of the things that you might consider as your best friend to write a post that communicates and narrates rather than just inform. Consider them as your best friends in crafting an effective post to speak what you feel and experience and know.

Tip to Craft an Effective Post

Tip to Craft an Effective Post

1) Right from the start of the line. use proper punctuation. Make subject clear to the reader.

2) Use words, reading which one can easily understand what you want to say.

3) Use long sentence in the header, in case you cannot convey in a word or two.

4) Don’t separate yourself from the audience, if you are conveying a lesson you have learnt.
Use the wordsย  : ‘Us’, ‘Ours’, ‘We’ย  than ‘I’, ‘me’, ‘mine’.

5) Remove repetitive lines. This, you will learn to unlearn, when you keep reading. You will soon get to know what words are repetitive.

6) When you are attempting to write a conversation, use punctuation and express the right question. Imagine someone is actually sitting in front of you. How will you talk?
Remember the pause you take, even that pause makes the conversation understandable.

Consider this sample sentence :

1) Are we going to be happy forever after that?
2) Are we going to be happy after that, forever?

See how just a change in position of the last three words and the punctuation, comma makes the difference!
First line is so straightforward.
Make it involving. Like a dialogue. How will you talk in actually, like that!ย  Then it will engage the audience more in your writing. Just like how the conversations run in the mind, just put them like that, word to word.

Now, have a look at this sentence : “No, then there will be another desire..& it will go on…”

This sentence might puzzle someone : What will go on?

So many times, we are clear in our mind, of what we want to say and take it for granted, that people will understand it.

To avoid any questions, write it giving references, deliberately – with purpose.

So a revised sentence could be : “No, then there will be another desire &ย  this cycle of wanting something & desiring for more will go on..”

Involve the audience in your writing.

So, How did the question arise in your head? Say that sincere question!
Avoid “I” whenever you can if you are talking about a lesson. Use We, Us, Lets. This creates a feeling of inclusion, that the lesson and the learning is normal and part of all of us.

Another set of sentences :
1) “May i get that something or not. My happiness is not going to change according to my desires.”

2 )
“Whether i get that something or not, my happiness is not going to change according to my desires.”
Take this firm decision.

Observe both sentences, in the first, the point is made but left with a statement. Second one emphasizes the urgency.

So remember, When you make a strong point, emphasize on it.

Here – “Take this firm decision” is an emphasis. You stress on that line again.

Deliver the impact, don’t wait for the audience to get that experience, give that experience.

( Sentence 1 )

“Now you are Happy”

( Sentence 1 – edited )

“That confidence & faith will bring peace in you and eventually make you happy.”

Be clear in giving the experience.

What makes me happy? What would make me happy? It is that feeling of confidence and faith that will make me happy.

So you see, we have got that learning, we have experienced, but we take it for granted and skip it with habit and thus end up not expressing the sentence completely.

(ย  Sentence 2 )

“Now you can take tension free steps to get anything in life (as you are already Happy)”

( Sentence 2 – edited )

“You will feel ready to take steps to achieve anything in life.”

Frame it correctly. Sometimes you may write something and then realize, oh! something is missing.

So re-write it again.
The last word should leave the reader complete, with the experience.

The last word should leave the reader, complete with experience.

But How is that going to happen?

1) Write it from the first thought to the last thought.

2) Use proper pause. Use commas and punctuation and write in full words, avoid shortcuts – short words – SMS/chat language.

3) Write more. Read whenever you can. You will see a lot of how to write in flow in write-ups that engage you more in the write-up ๐Ÿ™‚

Involve the audience, lead them into a conversation. ๐Ÿ™‚

Write first, add punctuations then.

Take a break and read it again. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sometimes we write being emotional or in the feeling of Aho Niranajana – When it clicks and so we miss out on writing the tiny details that make it a experience.

So take a break and re-read it after some time and then again overlook the flow, the punctuation and make the necessary edits ๐Ÿ™‚

and last of all, don’t worry how the audience will take you – they might or might not appreciate you. Just take the lesson of writing and move on.

Improve on writing. Don’t feel down by critics. ๐Ÿ™‚

Even you can be an awesome writer!

At least just this intention and practice is good enough :))

remember :

Dealing People & Mistakes!

So a dear friend of mine asked this genuine question!

How do u deal with anger and frustration when U relied on a certain someone and that certain someone screws it up for U knowing that it is of utmost importance to U?

This is what i could answer..

Communication is one factor that can be practised to get ur things done. Be clear in expressing and establishing the importance of getting ur work done on time. Lets take an example. If u want a Haar for G on Yesplus.. one would usually say pls bring haar. U should instead specify what size haar what kind of more things u want eg flowers and all.. and what time the person should reach the venue. All these things u know but u dont convey to the person u entrust the job to. So establishing a strong communication with the person and correctly making him realise the importance of ur work.

Second is taking committment from the person that the work be completed in certain period of time ๐Ÿ™‚ Be considerate and yet strict. Third is once given some task. Do follow up and find out giving them space of trust if they are facing any problems and if yes pls help them out to solve it.

One thing is dont move on assumptions. If still the person did something wrong then Find out exactly why!? And if its genuine enough tell the person how u could have better dealt the problem being unbiased. And make them realise how much painful it is to face when something like this happens. And if surpassing all if they are still hard skinned well u use ur own techniques skillfully to get their brains right on track

Much Love & Regards,
JaiGurudeva!
