The Best Compliment

I have always wondered what would probably be the best compliment one can ever give to anyone. For a girl, saying you are beautiful like a hundred times a day would probably make her feel good, but will that make her happy. Though the concept of happiness has been used again and again to describe one's feelings, but it being very subjective make things really difficult to determine what makes you the happiest. 

Again, if you are asked why do you like someone or rather what makes you like someone. This has been the trickiest question of the textbook ever. To be honest, yes most of the times looks do the trick and you start liking anyone, but have you ever realized if only looks can make you happy. And unless you are happy with someone how can you even dare to say that yes I do like someone. This clears the the thin line of difference between between liking and infatuation. A question that has been asked over and over again. 

Again you might come across a question about proving to someone that how can you be with someone within such a short span. Well, I have always been against the notion that relationships happen overnight. There comes a point when things tend to fall on their own. You have a check list, like this is what I always wanted or like yes I would love to have someone who would probably be like things. And all of a sudden when you come across someone who happens to be even better than what you have ever thought of, how can you stop yourself from falling for someone. 

Coming back to the point of giving a true compliment, you know you are doing something right when you realize that other person is happy being with out. When you realize that time spent with you is priceless and you leave all your obsessions to just listen to you. A good picture of you makes someone’s day, and all day long someone carries that smile. And you know you make someone happy when you make a serious factual writer comes up with the most of horrible one liners and jokes, which are not even remotely close to funny and yet you laugh at your horrible disastrous sense of humor. You know you make someone happy when instead of facts someone memorizes the list of emoticons you use.

Yes, to sum up let me tell you what the best compliment ever is, someone tell you that you make one HAPPY.

Wish I could 'FLIRT'

I was in class VII, when I first came across the word ‘flirting’. (This apparently proves my weakness in vocabulary). Anyways, it was my friend Jyotirmoy who was talking about him flirting with a girl. As usual, an innocent me, asked, “ এই flirting মানে কি? ” Which apparently meant, ‘What does flirting mean? What an apt description he gave, he said, it is an act of conveying someone that you love him/her verbally, though you hold no feelings for him/her by heart. Mind it, class VII we were, and we were already discussing how to fake love. That was good old 7 years back, in a phase of time, where at least love was not merely a matter of one night stand. Over the time, Jyotirmoy did excel in the art of flirting on screen, no wonder, he is yet to score a girl, but he has surely excelled. This is an art, an art probably all of the cool dude modern guys surely have good hands on. But what I am more concerned about is actually described in the last part of the last line of th

A Note To My Abandoned Blog!

I have been writing for over a decade now. In 2012, I started a blog and went on to garner a lakh page views by 2015. Social media wasn’t as big then as to what it is now, the internet wasn’t a necessity, but rather an accessory and attention span surely was more than what we have today. So I believe I can get a little pat on my back for what I achieved.   Come 2016, my blog reached the 200k mark, and then like the abandoned Paper Factory in Jagiroad, Assam, I abandoned my blog. I did write a couple of pieces up until 2021, but that was probably the flickering flame of a dying lamp.   So, did I stop writing after 2016? Hell no, in fact, I have been writing an unimaginable volume of work. From academic papers, news stories, features for magazines, websites, academic papers, dissertations, press releases, scripts, concept notes and my favourite pass time, emails, I have been churning out words after words .  But what I absolutely stopped doing is, writing for myself. Personal writing a

Life on the Wheels: Mr Ram Kumar

The title might suggest that the post is about some adventurous traveler, who roams the world in a four wheeler exploring thousands of kilometers. Indeed, he travels thousands of kilometers, probably 36000 km a month, yet he is not adventurous traveler, and probably we would never imagine our lives to be like his. Life on the Wheels Meet Mr. Ram Kumar , the coach attendant of the Dibrugarh Rajdhani Express . Mr. Kumar, with just 4 holidays a month, travels all the way from New Delhi to Dibrugarh via Guwahati serving passengers and back. Again the same day he leaves for Jammu with another fleet of passengers and the cycle goes on. Four holidays is just like nothing, a resident of Bihar, it takes him 2 days to reach home from Delhi and unlike the so called posh Rajdhani where he serves; he boards a general sleeper class compartment to get back. Yet, he wears a badge saying ‘Serving with a smile’ and severs to every new face which he meets in his journey without any compla
