My Answer


It's been two weeks!
I gave everything I had for my exams (I could've given more, but, no regrets!) and am really enjoying my short holidays.
I caught up on some Korean Drama which was on rage in the past few days. I was completely immersed... Hmm...
Anyway, a well-deserved rest for the coming semester.

Coming back to my post, this one is where I give you My Answer.
A very long answer with the hows and whys and everything.

From the past three years, I have been asked this question relentlessly. By everyone. Including my parents, brother and my friends and relatives, literally everyone. (Even yesterday.)

"WHY? Why do you listen to 'this' Korean songs? Why do you watch these dramas?"

First of all, let me thank you for trying so hard to understand. Thank you, thank you for your concern.

Secondly, I feel sorry for those who won't ever understand this feeling.

During my graduate course, I was at a point where I was just blank. I had no idea what I wanted to do and I had no interest in anything. I was just passing the days blandly and desperately praying for inspiration.
That's it.
Inspiration. Something to motivate me, to move me so that the fire in my heart will re-ignite and never stop burning.
I would pray everyday, literally ask Him for inspiration.

And that was it. I guess He answered my prayers.

(Have you ever had a role model? Somebody whom you look up to? Somebody whom you admire. Somebody you aspire to become. Not their profession, their looks or riches but the person themselves.
I think everybody should have one. It's good to have role models and to be inspired by them.)

Now as to why only them, because they are different. Because they are themselves. Everywhere.

I'll take the example of my favourite group, the members of Infinite who are always honest. They are humble and hilarious. They are not two-faced. They are not fake. AND they sing for the sake of singing. Like Lilly Singh says, 'money is a part of what I do. I don't do videos just to make money.', they don't sing for the sake of making money or becoming famous. They do it because they love to sing. It is clearly evident in their songs.
And they don't use their songs for lashing out at other people, or throw out their frustrations and anger and their emotions.
They sing them to spread music to their fans, to sing along with us and in hope that it will inspire us when we are sad or troubled in our lives. (And heck! it works!)
They don't lip-sync during broadcasts. They sing and dance.
And they are so loyal to themselves and to their fans. They take the time to learn the language of the country they go to, to have a concert. Not just few sentences, they learn the famous songs and sing it for the fans there. They try so hard to connect, despite the language barrier.

I've heard of artists who don't even give a damn when a fan meets them, tries hard to express their love for the artist's work. They just leave them hanging. Not even a 'thanks'.

Compared to them, (I know comparing is wrong, but still, in this case it is relevant) Infinite is so much more honest. And that is why I love them.
I'm sure that one day, when we meet, they will happily smile and talk to me like a friend.

The same goes for all other k-pop groups I love.
There are so many people among them who are around my age, who have already achieved something in their lives, who are working hard so much more than me and watching them, listening to them, inspires me to do my best.

And the Dramas are not dragged for years and years. They don't have the saas-bahu bullshit or the stupidity where everybody's faces are zoomed in for every dialogue said. They don't have 'Seasons'. They have only a maximum of 20 episodes. Most dramas are of 16 episodes, each episode is of an hour length.
And the story moves fast. They don't take a whole month to open the door. (lol)
The acting is flawless and on point. And it will leave you refreshed and energized. (who am I kidding, it will break your heart and you will have withdrawal symptoms for days. lol)
But, some dramas do leave you feeling positive and happy!

So yeah, I love them for their personality and hard working nature. And their humbleness even though they are famous.

And of course, they are handsome, sexy as hell and swoon worthy. *rofl*
*sighs with a dreamy smile*

So that's my answer.

If I remember anything else, I will add it to the post. :P

Thank you so much.

Stay Healthy, Stay Happy.

And That's a Wrap!


It has been so long. Soooo long. I know! I messed up my schedule and fell into a downward spiral of utter laziness.

BUT, this won't happen again. I know I keep saying this in my previous posts too, but not this time. Even if it is a small post, I will update it! *Fighting* (This is a Korean way of saying "Do your best", along with clenching your fists *does the action*. It doesn't mean, to literally fight. haha.)

Anyway, it's 2017! A New Year! Another blank 365 days. What will you fill it with?

I still remember my "resolution" for 2016. I couldn't keep that on New Years' Eve itself. So that was that. (please excuse me as I laugh my heart out) And also it was a momentary decision made out of stupidity.

Resolutions have become flaky. People just throw that word around and try their best to follow it.........for about a week. Then, it is back to the usual repetition of the same (boring) lifestyle.

I watch a lot of videos - Robin Sharma's mastery sessions, Ted Ex talks, motivational speeches etc. etc. So, what I've heard is that, instead of "resolutions", now, all creative, driven, hard working people set "goals" for throughout the year; one that they are bound to follow and accomplish.
They sit at the end of the year and analyse what they have accomplished the whole year, what time and money they have wasted/utilized and in what ways they have changed compared to the previous year.
They make time for this and evaluate themselves.
Then, they set goals for the new year. And they chalk down steps to be taken towards that goal.

I am currently doing that.
Last year, around late July, I came across this concept of a 'Bullet Journal'. (You have no idea how crazy I was about planners and stickers and stationary. I have literally tried printing planners and broken my head over watching planner videos. So, obviously seeing my plight, YouTube recommended a 'bullet journal' video. lol)

To make it simple for you, you can make your own bullet journal. All you need is a book and a pen. You just need to write down everything. It will be a blank book of course (DUH!), and you will fill it with calendars - monthly, yearly; and then the date and day - and all tasks you need to finish that day.

You can click here if you want to know more about the whole process.

I will definitely talk more about Bullet Journal in another post, so as I was saying, I took time to really analyse what I did the whole year in 2016 and what lessons I have learnt and whether I have become a little more aware of myself than before. (I wrote them all down in my bullet journal.)

Oh, I learnt a lot. A lot. I graduated and joined MSc. (That was the first half of 2016. All flowery and filled with laziness.)
I moved out of my lovely home for pursuing MSc.
I faced a lot of hardships in Mysuru.
I made wonderful friends and I understood the importance of my family and old friends.
I missed my old college days like hell.
I felt like running away from Mysuru! to throw away everything and come home straight.(It would have been easy because the train station is pretty close to my college. hahaha) But, even that takes courage. A whole lot at that.
I had many days where I cried myself to sleep; days where I wanted to scream until my voice broke.
I had days where I had so much fun laughing that I completely forgot what I was doing.

So, when I thought about it all, I realised I have overcome all of them.
And therefore I think I can overcome whatever is in store for me.

I had spent the past months regretting my decisions. But, a few days back my friend said, "No Turning Back." What's done is done. You can either stop whining over it and focus on your future or you can stay stagnant. The choice is yours.
No turning back. No turning back. - was what I wanted to hear. You have no idea how much these three words mean to me. They have become my mantra. They've given me closure. (Thank you so much for saying these words to me. I am forever grateful!!)

So, I hope that you all too, will take some time to sit down and think about what you really want. You can do whatever you set your mind on! It does not matter what age you are, or where you are; if you have a goal in mind, you can accomplish it. Only if you make a firm decision.

And who says planning is a waste of time. If you plan with the intention of doing it, then you will definitely follow your plan. "Plan your work and then Work your plan." HOLDS TRUE. Being organised is definitely worth it.

I hope you all had a great start to the New Year.
Please look forward to the posts in this blog. And Thank you, Thank you so much! for supporting me and reading my posts and waiting for them so patiently.
I am truly grateful.

Stay Healthy, Stay Happy.
