Life - By Aditi Jog

Life is like a game
Of snakes and ladders
Sometimes sad
Sometimes happy

Sometimes up
Sometimes down
Sometimes happening
Sometimes risky

Life can be a gift
as well as a curse
only the perspective matters
only the use matters

Life is an experience
and experiment for all of us
Life is also a teacher

Life is to see
to learn
to understand
to grow

Life is
all around
for us
to experience it

Each life has a meaning
Each life has a purpose
Each life is an irrevocable gift
which once gone
cannot be returned

So cherish each moment
Cherish each day
Cherish each second
and make life a memorable gift

To give
and to receive
and to enjoy
an expensive gift
called "Life"

Bea(YOU)tiful- By Nikita Prabhu

She was standing there quietly watching the sea,
As the mischievous wind played with her hair,
It seemed as if she's thinking of a key
For something as beautiful as,
with her life, her affair

She was beautiful for the way her mind
was engulfed in the waves
Her looks though were run of the mill
Lost in her own thoughts as deep as a cave
Something paramount she was trying to instill

She was beautiful for the way she spoke about her passion
Even for others it may have been out if fashion
But the shimmer in her eyes was inescapable
And in all senses she was truly invincible

She was beautiful because her mind gleamed
And life became a cakewalk even though difficult it seemed
All the backbreaking turned out to be fruitful
and she, in the real sense of the word,
became Bea(YOU)tiful!!

Dance With Chirag!

Last year, we all had a chat with this wonderfully talented and unique personality called Chirag
Aggarwal who is a dancer, a dance trainer, choreographer, a zumba instructor, a singer and a pianist!
Phew! So many talents in one person! 
This year, I give you all another chance to get to know a bit more about him.
So I asked this semi-finalist of the Dance Premier League (Sony TV) a few questions and he shot back all the answers in a jiffy. Here they go!
Me: As an artist, did you face any struggle? Chirag: Not really. I guess things worked out pretty well for me since the beginning.
Me: What/Who is your motivation when it comes to dancing? Chirag:Anything motivates me because I love dancing!
Me: So you always wanted to pursue a career in dance? Chirag. Surprisingly, no. It's since the last 8 years that I am into dancing. It was my mother who felt I could dance so she enrolled me in a dance class. They recognized my talent there and then within a week I was promoted to an advance class,…

Pratibha Kochar speaks!!

Hello everybody! Today we have with us a homemaker, a mother and a Masterchef India contestant (Food show latest- season 4)!! Please welcome Pratibha Kochar on my blog who will share quite a few things with us!

Let's see what conversation I had with her-

Me: Pratibhaji, how did you think of taking part in Masterchef?
Pratibha: My children pushed me into it actually. I used to see the earlier seasons of Masterchef but they all included non vegetarian dishes. Since I am a vegetarian I don't prepare non-vegetarian food. This season was a vegetarian season and as soon as my kids came to know about it, they urged me to participate! I still remember I gave my audition on 6th of November,2014.

Me: Have you always loved cooking? Who is your inspiration when it comes to cooking?
Pratibha: Yes I have always had an inclination towards cooking. Before marriage, my mother and sister were my inspiration. After I got married, my son is my inspiration! He always wants something different to eat.…

Samir and Sakshi -By Anand Verma

Samir was alone in his room. Heavily
drunk. Sakshi, his girlfriend, left him,

a few months back. Reason? She had caught him visiting a brothel. Even worse, she came to know the girl in the brothel were under-18. She had slapped him, cried for a day or two and then packed her bags and left. They had been in a live-in since 2 years before that.
Samir was rich. Even though 25, he was a big businessman thanks to his sharp skills.He was soft spoken, humble and a quiet guy. Add to that his collection of cars and his fit body, he was everything a girl could ask for. But he fell for Sakshi. She seemed like the definition of beauty. The slim waist, those deep black eyes below the beautiful eyebrows. That long hair tied in a bun, a strand of which came to her face. His jaw dropped when he first saw her and just like a stupid romeo, he straightaway went and proposed her. At first, she was shocked and looking at his Audi A8 and his clothes, she took him to be a rich spoilt brat of a rich parent who slept around with girls. But…

Ladies and Gentlemen, put your hands together to welcome none other than Gaurav Ghatnekar! Today we have with us a handsome hunk who is a talented Marathi and Hindi actor, famous for his movies like "Tujhi Majhi Love Story" and shows like "Tuj Vin Sakhya Re" among many others. He
has recently been essaying the role of Lord Krishna to perfection in a popular Hindi show called Dharmakshetra on Epic Channel.

Back after a game of squash, in a candid chat with me, he answers some of my questions-

Me: Have you always wanted to be an actor? What made you decide that you want to be an actor?
Gaurav: When I was a kid, I was fascinated by a lot of professions. One day I would want to be a bus
conductor the other day a 'pepsi-cola' seller, as I grew up I wanted to be a pilot so that I could fly a plane . Then I felt like joining the army once. I realised that if I want to be so many people at once, I should be an actor! An actor can be whoever he wants and that's…
