A Comfort Zone is a beautiful place..
But nothing ever grows there!!
A Comfort Zone is a beautiful place..
A certain gentleman walked into a Hotel and after perusing through the Menu ordered for some Food.
After about 20 minutes another group of gentlemen walked in and ordered for theirs.
To his dismay, the first gentleman saw them get served first. He watched as they began to eat and laugh heartily.
He even overheard one of them brag about how he knew everyone at that hotel and how things moved fast for him there. He felt he was being mocked.
He contemplated leaving. But he had waited so long. Unable to take it anymore, he called the waiter and spoke sadly of how unfair things were.
The waiter calmly told him, yours is a Special Order Sir, being prepared by the Chief Chef himself. Their orders were prepared hurriedly by Interns because the top chefs are busy with yours. That’s why they came first. Please have some juice as you wait.
Unknown to him the Owner of the Hotel (who happened to be an old long lost Friend of his) had seen him coming and wanted to surprise him. He had made changes to his simple meal to make it a Five Star Meal.
He calmed down and waited. Shortly after, his Meal was served by 6 Waiters and he was waited on hand and foot and being made very comfortable.
The party at the other table were shocked. They couldn’t stop staring. Suddenly they were the ones murmuring, asking why they didn’t get that kind of service and meal.
So it is with Life. Some people are ahead of you and eating now, laughing at you about how they know people and how they’re blessed with money and how they’re enjoying life because of it.
You have been waiting long wondering why its taking so long to get your breakthrough, enduring mockery and humiliation. Maybe you have contemplated suicide, gone through depression or suffered severe mental anxiety.
D O NOT WORRY. The Owner of the World has seen you. And He doesn’t want to give you simple meals like those laughing at you.
You’ve been waiting for long because yours is a Special Meal and takes time. And only Chief Chefs make those.
Take heart today. Wait for your Meal and relax. When it comes, the laughing party will be silenced for good.
Calm Down. You are Special to the Owner of this World…God is there.

A very bright morning of May it was when I was standing right in front of Taj Mahal, Taj Mahal is an ivory-white marble mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna river in the Indian city of Agra. It was commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan to house the tomb of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The tomb is the centerpiece of a 42-acre complex, which includes a mosque and a guest house, and is set in formal gardens bounded on three sides by a crenelated wall.
It was my first encounter with this monument of white marble shining like a Pearl as the sun scorches its light over the tomb of it, holding many eternal story in its heart and love of millions of people, Taj Mahal was standing tall and still with pride right at the center of the premise. I had always wished to visit this place right from the day of my childhood when I saw my parent’s old photograph at Taj Mahal which they had clicked during the early years of their marriage. I have grown up reading about this wonder of world but unfortunately even after spending years of my life in New Delhi for my initial studies I had never got a chance to give myself a treat of visiting this famous heritage site.
It only happened this year when my husband was going to New Delhi for some official work that I decided to accompany him and grab a chance to visit Agra which is near to New Delhi and where the epic monument “Taj Mahal”is . We both decided to visit the place if the official work gets over on time. So our trip to Agra was not confirmed, it was depending upon various other circumstances, But in my heart I knew that this time I am definitely going to visit this place with the LOVE OF MY LIFE . So even though the plan was not sure, still I was prepared with my Camera and my gut instinct which was constantly saying “Taj Mahal We are coming” as soon as we left for Delhi.
Luckily we got a day off from work and immediately we started making arrangements for our much awaited one day trip to Agra. We knew the fact that after 10 am Taj Mahal often gets crowded with visitors and since we wanted to enjoy the moment exclusively with no heavy crowd , we decided to leave as early as possible from Delhi so that we could reach Agra before sunrise .
It takes around 5 hours to reach Agra from New Delhi, So we left at around 2 am in the night from New Delhi and reached Agra exactly at 7 am. In order to save time we avoided public transport and opted for a personal cab. We were so exited to experience sun rise at Taj Mahal that we did not want to waste even a single minute. So without even having breakfast we immediately told our driver to take us directly to the Taj Mahal premise rather than wasting time in some hotel to get freshen up. Now you can imagine the level of excitement we had 🙂
As soon as We reached the place, all our tiredness was gone seeing the Beautiful Taj Mahal in front of us. We decided to first roam around the monument , click few photographs and then just sit for some time to praise the beauty and aura of this Heritage of our Country. Each and every thing related to this place is beautiful and amusing. After spending 3 hours at Taj Mahal we headed to a near by hotel to get freshen up for a while and then roamed the city of Agra and the local shops.
Other than Taj Mahal there are also few more Heritage sites to Visit in Agra like Agra Fort, Itmad-Ud-Daulah, local shops etc. If you are somebody who likes to shop or buy souvenir then don’t forget to buy the famous camel leather shoes or miniature of Taj Mahal made in marble from here. You can also buy Banana leaf saari for your friends and family.
After roaming the city We decided to leave for Delhi by evening. Though it was a small trip but each and every moment of it will be cherished by me for ever.
Here I am also sharing some photographs of the place from my camera. Enjoy 🙂
Swayam se Swayam ko likhti hun mai..
Mann k sihai se Korey Panno ko aaj bharti hun mai
Ki chahey jo ho es jeevan mein
Udaasi ki taraf muh naa tu moodega
Mann ka ho ya naa ho kabhi
Mann vichlit na honey dega
Har ek zakhm bhar jaeyega
Kathin bhi aasaan ho jaeyega
Gar ho hausla purn, jeevan ko punah tu apnaeyega
Himmat haar kabhi kya kuch mila hai?
Rakhne se hausla hi toh sab mumkin hua hai
Toh fir badaltey zamaaney k saath badalne se tu daraa mat kar
Ro ro kar kabhi apne safar ko kosha mat kar
Jeevan toh chakka hai chalta hi jaeyega
Aaj ko kal ki chinta mein tu barbaad na kar
Jo hua accha hua
Jo hoga wo bhi accha hi hoga
Karm k siwa naa kal tere haath me tha kuch
Naa hi fir kal kuch ho paeyega
Toh kyun rahe tu uljha es awastha mein?
Kyun pathhar bharey hain chinta ki ,
Mann rupi farishtaa mein?
Tu adig ban khada reh chattano ki tarah
Fir dekh kaise kathin samay lamho mein simat kar beet jaeyega
Naa kabhi tu haara hai naa ab koi tujhe haraa paeyega
Jitney ki raah mein jab ab chal pada hai tu
Toh nischit jeet hi jeet toh paeyega
Nischit jeet hi jeet tu paeyega…
Life goes on!
Is all we know
But little do we understand
Wounds never heal
But pain from the past
Resides in forever
Fragrance in air of present
May bring freshness for a while
But stains of blood on the desk of Past life
Years from then might have passed
When One had left one alone
But little did they know
They are Leaving someone standing on the path
Which leads nowhere but to an empty self
And a heart which is now an abandoned place
To dump only hatred and nothing else..
