Look at this castle, Oh! It's so magnificent The rays of the sun falling and gleaming on it It seems to be so significant As she glares and admires the beauty of it Glancing at these amusing things, she baffles As if someone has cast a spell on her She wears a glamorous gown which, in the sunlight, dazzles She bites her lip in anticipation,imagining magical things which would happen further. Unicorns gliding, doves soaring Carriages moving and fairies seem gleeful She finds this ecstasy so alluring That she joins the little princesses who seem too cheerful The water from the fountain is splashing in the air She hears an anxious voice and in her eyes flashes sunbeam She perplexes and fiddles with her hair And then she perceives that this was just a dream! ~Siya XOXO
Life was great, like a beautiful sight; Things were perfect, because of his might. Her days were passing fantastically; But someone was dying of jealousy. And then came a devastating tide; Which blew away all her happiness and pride. Sobbing is not the solution, they say; Almighty helps those who help themselves. Everything had become so unjustifiable; Her life had turned, just like the tables. To keep herself away from this spell; She couldn't do anything but yell. It wasn't the end of her world; She was the bravest girl about whom, I've ever heard. She had started a new life, again; Because now she believed not to quit, but gain. If it's not happy, it's not the ending, they tell; So she lived happily ever after, just like in a fairy tale. ~Siya XO
We humans unjustifiably think that we are justifiable. We think that we decide how to behave by weighing the pros and cons. In reality, the strongest influence on our decisions is the example of the people around us.
Copernicus said “The earth together with its surrounding waters must in fact have such a shape as its shadow reveals, for it eclipses the moon with the arc of a perfect circle.”
The influence of peers is of critical importance. Everyone needs to belong — to feel connected with others and be with others who share attitudes, interests, and circumstances that resemble their own.
I hear people often say that you can’t rely on anyone but yourself. I do agree that certain things are solely for the self, and being alone isn’t necessarily a negative, in reality, no one wants to be alone, at least not forever. When you surround yourself with a group of individuals you can call your friends and individuals you can rely on, it’s as if you have both a team and a support system that’s in it for you for the long haul. Spending time with your peer group members you will learn your likes, dislikes, how you deal with situations, etc. The ability to develop peer friendships depends on one’s self-identity, self-respect, and self-reliance. We’re all here on this planet to not only make something of ourselves, but also to leave our mark in the most memorable manner.
As we meet new people and expand our social circles, we will encounter individuals from all walks of life, all with unique stories to tell and personalities to share. These people will help us in more ways than we can imagine, but mostly, they will help us to broaden our outlook on life. At its best, peer pressure can mobilize one’s energy, motivate for success, and encourage one to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can and do act as positive role models. Peer groups teach us getting along with others and developing morals and values. So, Surround yourself with good people and always be a good person in return.

‘Splashing colours and water guns; Holi is a festival for amusement and fun!’
All hearts are lighted with glory and people everywhere enjoy with their near and dear ones with different colours. People also throw water balloons on each other and enjoy a lot! Many are drenched in coloured water. Hours pass by throwing colours on each other and it seems as if it’s just the start of the day.
Even I play with colours (which we call gulal) with my friends. Drowned in water and colours, we dance, play and have loads of fun. It’s a festival of merriment and gaiety.
Every year I embrace the occasion with growing enthusiasm that bridges over my colourful childhood memories, to reach me today, as a festival to celebrate. Besides all this jubilation, there is something more to it that I adore; it is the spirit of unity, friendship and a will to forget the past and let the present take over our lives. This is what makes it my favourite festival.
Wishing you all a Happy Holi! (It is tomorrow but we celebrate it for consecutive 3 days) Enjoy and cherish all the moments! I hope y’all have a wonderful week! Carpe Diem :* ~Siya xoxo
I visited the Golconda Fort a few days ago. It lies on the western outskirts of Hyderabad city in India. Doesn’t this sound boring? I also thought the same when my family told me that we were going to visit the Golconda fort. But, I was perplexed to see that it was the contrary!
I was wonder-struck when I got to know that this fort also had a vault where once the famous Koh-i-noor diamond was kept. One can experience amazing acoustic effects, characteristics of the engineering marvels at Golconda.
I was standing at the highest point of the fort, which was the king’s room and it was a kilometre away from the gate (Fateh Darwaza). One of the guides, hand-clapped at a certain place under the dome at the entrance gate and it could be clearly heard where we were standing. This was used to warn the royals in case of an attack.
“Walls have ears!” This proverb was proved to be right. I was standing at one corner and my father was standing at the opposite corner and he whispered to the wall, and those whispers were being heard by me. Isn’t this bemusing? I too was quite baffled at that moment!
There were many more facts which were startling! Although it was a little tedious because we had to walk around 2 kilometres or so. But it was worthwhile as “Old places have a Soul.”
‘No. eating loads of chocolates is not good for you, my child,’ my mother replied to me when I had asked her to buy me some chocolates when I was 5. And now, with the twinkling of my mother’s eyes I’m 13! Currently, in the hum-drum of my daily life I seldom get a chance to call it a day.
Sometimes when I’m indolent, I try to recollect my childhood memories. I feel blissed out but I wonder would my 5-year-old be proud of this-present-me? Too deep, right. Leaving all these facts aside, my childhood has been quite astounding. At present it still is!
I am utterly an introvert, and once this idea of blogging struck upon to me. So I made it happen because of a quote that inspired me a lot to try my hand at writing. It was ‘Think you can and you’re halfway there.’ So here I am, tossed with all workability and decided to go getting. I started with the dreaded cursor from an all-blank-page and I conclude that if my mood is good, I write with virtuousness 😛
