Emptiness by Rohan Rathore

Emptiness!! …Tune mere jana kabhi nahi jana ishq mera dard mera …

Story Behind the song.

This song is sung by Rohan Rathore from IIT Guwahati for his love which was unfortunately one sided. He was suffering from cancer and died just after recording this song. 

I read somewhere that it’s just a cooked up story used for the marketing of the song.To me, It really doesnt matter whether it is a true story or not because the feel this song has got is so REAL .

Atleast 70% of the junta out there suffers from this syndrome called One- Sided love. This song is actually dedicated to all those who feels that somewhere emptiness belong to them.  Though they are surrounded by the whole world but still the person who can take away the loneliness is missing!! ..Hope you find him/her soon 🙂 🙂

My version of Emptiness :

(Please bear with my mistakes. It is just an attempt to sing this song)

Lyrics with translation

Oh love of mine, with a song and a whine,

You’re harsh and divine like truths and a lie.

But the tale ends not here,

I have nothing to fear,

for my love is a yell of forgiving and hold on.

In the bright emptiness, in a room full of it,

is a cruel mistress – wohh hoo..

I feel this unrest, that nests all hollowness,

for I have nowhere to go and I’m cold.

And I feel so lonely yeah…

There’s a better place than this, emptiness.

And I’m so lonely yeah…

There’s a better place than this, emptiness yei yei yeii yeeh..

Aa.. aa.. aa…

Tune mere jaana.., kabhi nahin jaana.., (oh my love, You have never realized)

Ishq mera, dard mera.. haaye.. (My love and my pain)

Tune mere jaana, kabhi nahin jaana,

Ishq mera, dard mera

Aashiq tera…   ( your lover)

Bheed mein khoya rehta hai… ( lost in this crowd)

Jaane jahaan….  (my love)

Poocho toh itna kehta hai –  ( if asked, he just says..)

That I feel so lonely yeah…

There’s a better place than this, emptiness…

And I’m so lonely yeah…

There’s a better place than this, emptiness yei yei yei… ya..


A beautiful story

A beautiful story

I came across this beautiful Love Story. Thought of sharing it with you all 🙂
The passengers on the bus watched sympathetically as the attractive young woman with the white cane made her way carefully up the steps. She paid the driver and, using her hands to feel the location of the seats, walked down the aisle and found the seat he’d told her was empty. Then she settled in, placed her briefcase on her lap and rested her cane against her leg.
It had been a year since Susan became blind. Due to a medical misdiagnosis she had been rendered sightless, and she was suddenly thrown into a world of darkness, anger, frustration and self-pity. ‘How could this have happened to me?’ she would plead, her heart knotted with anger. But no matter how much she cried or ranted or prayed, she knew the painful truth, her sight was never going to return. A cloud of depression hung over Susan’s once optimistic spirit.All she had to cling to was her husband Mark.
Mark was an Air Force officer and he loved Susan with all his heart.When she first lost her sight, he watched her sink into despair and was determined to help his wife gain the strength she needed to become independent again.
Finally, Susan felt ready to return to her job, but how would she get there? She used to take the bus, but was now too frightened to get around the city by herself. Mark volunteered to drive her to work each day, even though they worked at opposite ends of the city. At first, this comforted Susan and fulfilled Mark’s need to protect his sightless wife who was so insecure about performing the slightest task. Soon, however Mark realized that this arrangement wasn’t working – it was hectic, and costly.
Susan is going to have to start taking the bus again, he admitted to himself. But just the thought of mentioning it to her made him cringe.She was still so fragile, so angry. How would she react? Just as Mark predicted, Susan was horrified at the idea of taking the bus again. “I’m blind!” she responded bitterly. “How am I supposed to know where I’m going?I feel like you’re abandoning me.”
Mark’s heart broke but he knew what had to be done. He promised Susan that each day he would ride the bus with her until she got the hang of it.
And that is exactly what happened. For two solid weeks, Mark, militaryuniform and all, accompanied Susan to and from work each day. He taught her how to rely on her other senses to determine where she was and how to adapt to her new environment. He helped her befriend the bus drivers who could watch out for her, and save her a seat. Each morning they made the journey together, and Mark would take a cab back to his office.
Although this routine was even more costly and exhausting than the previous one, Mark knew it was only a matter of time before Susan would be able to ride the bus on her own. Finally, Susan decided that she was ready to try the trip on her own.
Monday morning arrived, and before she left, she threw her arms around Mark, her temporary bus riding companion, her husband, and her best friend. Her eyes filled with tears of gratitude for his loyalty, his patience, his love.She said good-bye, and for the first time, they went their separateways.Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday…. Each day on her own wentperfectly, and Susan had never felt better.
On Friday morning, Susan took the bus to work as usual. As she was paying for her fare to exit the bus, the driver said, “Boy, I sure envy you.”Susan wasn’t sure if the driver was speaking to her or not. After all, who on earth would ever envy a blind woman who had struggled just to find the courage to live for the past year? “Why do you envy me?”
The driver responded, “It must feel so good to be taken care of and protected like you are.”Susan had no idea what the driver was talking about, “What do you mean?” The driver said, “You know, every morning for the past week, a fine looking gentleman in a military uniform has been standing across the corner watching you when you get off the bus. He makes sure you cross the street safely and he watches you until you enter your office building. Then he blows you a kiss, gives you a little salute and walks away. You are one lucky lady.”
Tears of happiness poured down Susan’s cheeks. For although she couldn’t see him, she had always felt Mark’s presence. She was blessed, so blessed, for he had given her a gift more powerful than sight, a gift she didn’t need to see to believe – the gift of love that can bring light where there had been darkness.
“You don’t love a woman because she is beautiful, but she is beautiful because you love her…”
So if you love someone be faithful to that person.

Key to happiness :)

Hello Friends,

Wish you all a very happy new year. May you all get loads of real happiness:)

Another year has started. Time is just flying. Isn’t it? The period given to each one of us is very limited.So, don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drown your own inner voice. Have faith in yourself and follow your heart. Everybody is unique and deserves the best. The quality of the time will be measured by the happiness it brought to you. And if you are happy, you will definitely make people around you cheerful.

That’s why we say “To spread Smile we need to have one with us”.

I want to share some thoughts with you. All of us already know it. It is just an effort to recollect these wonderful thoughts which can make us a better human being.  It is a key to happiness.

  1. Never Pretend : Be true to yourself. It’s always better to be original rather than being a duplicate of someone else. Don’t change your identity to please others. You can be happy with them only if they accept you the way you are.
  2. Relish small things: We generally overlook the happiness which we can get in little things. Be it as tiny as getting a new bed sheet to make your room lively!!  We just forget about the kid who is still there inside us. Make your life happening. Each day is special. It will come back to you in the form of good or bad memories. So why shouldn’t we take efforts to make it pleasant? Be with the people who enable you. Avoid being with those who bring negativity, depression.
  3. Mind your words: Think twice before saying anything. We are blessed with an ability to communicate. Make use of it carefully. Be sure your words don’t hurt others. You can always handle any situation in a better way without letting other person feel bad. Try to keep yourself in others shoes before judging any situation. Everybody s perspective towards life is different and that’s how we all are unique. Whatever you are thinking might not be right always.
  4. Be a good listener: People want someone by their side with whom they can talk, express how they feel, share little/ big happiness. But before expecting others to pay attention, be ready to listen to them, to respect their feelings and views.
  5. Be proactive: Don’t wait for others to do something for you. You should be responsible enough to handle your own things. Don’t be dependent on others for every minute thing.
  6. Be Helpful: Be kind, thoughtful, helpful to people around. Look for the reasons to assist others. Sometimes it’s good to sacrifice in order to see others happy. It’s a bliss feeling. If you are genuinely good to others, then at least 90% will be good to you.
  7. Listen to your heart: Don’t do things just for the sake of doing it. Life is too precious spending it doing something which you don’t like. Ask yourself “what you exactly want”,“what gives you real happiness”. Do things which bring you serenity, smile, contentment. But make sure you are not hurting anybody with your actions.
  8. Embrace mistakes: Everybody is prone to make mistakes. The more mistakes you make, the faster you learn .Accept it and try not repeating it again. Never wait to say sorry if you know that fault is yours.
  9. Spread smile: Bring happiness in other s life even if it’s very small. Your slightest effort might create a difference.
  10. Be open to criticism: It always brings you a new vision. Learn from every small instance which comes your way.
  11. Be positive: Believe in yourself. How can you expect others to believe you if you can’t trust your own abilities? Stop complaining about your problems and try to focus on the solution. If you can find out the positive side of anything, you can definitely live a richer life.
  12. Don’t compare: Never compare yourself with others and feel inferior. Comparison should always be healthy and it should motivate you towards good things in life.
  13. Live in the moment: Don’t let the past steal your present. Don’t let your memories be greater than your dreams. Live every moment.
  14. Stay connected: Keep in contact with your friends. Spend time with your close ones. Believe me it’s one of the best remedies to be happy.
  15. Never play with feelings.

I will try to follow these things. Each day should bring an improvement in us. Be happy and lively. Let’s make some conscious efforts to make this year the best one so far   🙂

I feel lucky !

I was passing by a park, when I saw an old couple begging. This amazed me for the very odd reason that they were doing it “together”.  By this thought, you must have understood how difficult “maintaining” relationships have become these days.  I have seen people run away from each other, just because they are “used” to each other or they want some “space” or they just “fell out of love”.

Now this makes me ask a very simple question. What is love?  Currently, love is overrated, not because it does not exist,but just because it is misinterpreted. People like to think that they “love” someone and give their lives for them but they fail to understand to deal with the fact that nobody is worth your life except for the ones who gave you life. Love according to me is just a phase of life that you share with this wonderful person who you are lucky enough to be with. This “love” seems to always fade away, coz you get used to being around the person all the time and you are used to feeling “lucky”. Break up is a very normal word now a days, the reason being “not compatible” or “fell out of love” or the most stupidest “started loving someone else” or “dont love him/her anymore”.

Well, I am too small to judge what exactly love is but the way the two old people were there for each other rather than being with each other in the worst of times makes me believe that this is what love is all about. I would think that these old people are having the best of the times because even when they had nothing to eat or drink they looked content wid having each other than having the rest of the world with them.

I bet there will be like this one in a billion and I am lucky enough to have seen atleast one of them.
