No rains for me please!


It has been raining so much in Mumbai that I am dreading going anywhere. It really hampers everything and it is getting worse each year. I wanted to rant on it and it went on the lines of how unlucky we are to be subjected to this. That is when I remembered a conversation I had with my mom on luck and how it works

I once asked mom what exactly is luck, to which she answered that its God helping us a little in our task! I wondered that God is unbiased and helps everyone then why is it that only a few feel lucky and rest of us keep cursing our luck. As if mom read my mind, she furthur told me that God helps those who have worked sincerely towards it and deserve it. I found it pretty interesting. So luck is not just a fluke, we need to make luck by our constant efforts! But then there are times when i have worked and slogged for many things and still didnot get those! Does that mean i didnt deserve those? Or was it that my efforts were not enough? When i wondered this aloud, mom told me that there were also times when i got things without puting much efforts in them and that time I didnt ask why I got it, I didnt deserve it! That was the other side I was ignoring. There were actually many times when i got things just like that and i never thanked universe for it! But i still didnt understand the basis on which luck favoured us!
Slowly and gradually i have come to understand it! This little thing called luck works in its own funny ways. I would call it God’s blessing! If we observe our life, we are blessed in every moment, we are lucky every moment! I have realized that i dont thank God for all the times i feel blessed or lucky but the precise moment i feel something going against me i say ‘OH NO, why me’!

Universe and the super power works in its own mysterious ways, so we are not favoured with luck everytime or so we feel! We cannot understand those ways, that is the reason there is a super power beyond our comprehension! It is not for us to understand how His ways work! Ours is the job to work hard, be sincere and thank the universe for all that we have today! We are all God’s children, He will take care of each one of us! We all know this, but still many people go to astrologers and numerologists to make their future better! I dont say its wrong, everyone is curious with regards to future, I too read my zodiac daily! But that is not the way to please the universe or God! We all should first thank Him for what we have today!
If i am able to write this post, am luckier than many who never got a chance to study!
If I get to use technology, am luckier than many who dont even get food daily!
If I have parents, am luckier than many children in orphanage!
If I have a place to call home, am luckier than many who live on streets!
If I wake up in morning, i am luckier than many who died!

I had decided that I will try to stop cursing my luck and show gratitude instead for giving me such a blessed life! However, every now and then I slip and end up with self pity cursing and finding excuses. But today, I chose not to rant but to instead be grateful that I am safe home. I hope everyone else is safe too ❤

Do you believe in luck?

I made some new friends…or not!!


Most people in India are familiar with the fact that cyclone Tauktae was suppose to pass through Bombay today so I woke up to loud rain and wind noises. I am not really scared of it but ofcourse I feel extremely sorry for people whose home’s were water logged or damaged due to it.

Me being more privileged than others, since I have a stable home where I stayed indoors, I decided to chase clouds using my phone. Oh and the wonders I caught!!! First and foremost I caught these three gentlemen crossing through the ledge of my balcony.

No but seriously, how gorgeous is nature’s work and by that mean both the sky and the monkey! I was scared they will take my phone away but I don’t scare easy so I simply changed the location which lead to this.

Yup, they were this close to taking my phone away! I heard my partner calling for me and shooing the monkey while I went to check something in another room, I simply assumed the phone must have fallen due to wind but no one small monkey wanted the phone. But I am glad to announce he did not win. My phone is safe, for now. Since my spirit is still not deterred, chances of them getting my phone are still pretty high. As a background to this, they have broken and ripped out four of my plants. Literal heart break so I don’t think I’d be that sad about the phone, my heart has taken worse Mr. Monkey. I know he won’t read this but just felt good to type it. Moving on, since I still had my phone I finally did capture the heavy rain attack today.

It’s so mighty, this world and it’s creator. You can see in the video that the wind shook my phone so much at start that the lapse is shaky. You will be able to see nature’s wrath as well as it’s beauty. Birds visited the ledge for shade and stared at the sky alongwith me. I will never stop being in awe of nature’s marvel around us. I have also tried to capture this on my gopro, I am not sure if anyone is interested to see that so I didn’t really transfer that. Maybe some other time 🙂
