Mirror of Erised // Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

“Professor Dumbledore: What do you see when you look in the mirror?"
“Harry: I? I see myself holding a pair of thick, woolen socks."

“Professor Dumbledore: Let me explain. The happiest man on earth would be able to use the Mirror of Erised like a normal mirror, that is, he would look into it and see himself exactly as he is.”

Harry thought. Then he said slowly, "It shows us what we want... whatever we want..."

"Yes and no," said Dumbledore quietly. 
"It shows us nothing more or less than the deepest, most desperate desire of our hearts.

You, who have never known your family, see them standing around you. Ronald Weasley, who has always been overshadowed by his brothers, sees himself standing alone, the best of all of them.

However, this mirror will give us neither knowledge or truth. Men have wasted away before it, entranced by what they have seen, or been driven mad, not knowing if what it shows is real or even possible.

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?”

हा मैं कई बार हार जाता हु,
खुद के फैसलों पर शक करने लगता हु,
और कई बार खुद पर ही शक करने लगता हु.

कई बार अपने आप परसे विश्वास उठ जाता हे,
लगता हे शायद कभी कुछ बड़ा नहीं कर पाउँगा मैं,

कई बार दिमाग मे एेसे सवाल आता हे की;
क्या मैं कभी अपने सारे सपने जी पाउँगा? कब तक मैं हारता रहुँगा,

कब तक ये सब एसा चलता रहेगा,
मगर फिर मे ये सब भूल जाता हु,
और हर बार ऐक नाइ शुरुआत करता हु,

क्योकि मैं एक बात अच्छे से जनता हु
की हार मेरी कहानी का एक हिस्सा ज़रूर हे, मगर अंत नहीं।

I warmly request you all to please forgive me if I have made any mistake in writing Hindi, I am not really good at writing Hindi(you know that badi-choti maatraye) but really wanted to write this feelings in Hindi today.

If you love something, if you have a dream, if there’s something you wish to do everyday, if there’s something you think about every night before sleeping, If there’s something which can make you happier.

Just f-in do that damn thing, the world will run with you or with you anyway. No one will die because you didn’t go to office. No one will sleep empty stomach because you decided to live your dream.

The only most important thing you have is time if this is gone no job, boss, money, client, school, college, professor, uncle, friend, girlfriend, boyfriend, or anyone will be able to give you back.

Don’t give me the excuse of money, you take the first step get out of your comfort zone and the Mother Earth will take care of everything.

And if you cannot break free yourself no one will ever be help to. Even if I give you money, you’ll find another excuse, my parents, my girlfriend, but this is not enough money.

Shhhhhhhhhhh

Anything that makes you weak physically, intellectually and spiritually, reject as poison. - Swami Vivekananda.

This is one of my most favourite quote by Swami Vivekananda. This one line has made such an impact on my life that many of the books haven’t been able to.

For me quotes are not something I write on social media to show or something I just read for no reason.

Quotes have changed my life. There was a time I was so weak that I couldn’t even raise my voice for my own sake and today I have the power to right endless problems and Swami Vivekananda’s quotes are one good reason behind this strength of mine.

Yesterday, I went on a day hike with few of my new friends/known people[I don’t even know the name of a few of them.] to a nearby village “Saithan”.

I woke up 5:30AM as they decided to meet at 6:00AM and start. I had to wait for all of them a little bit but finally 8:30AM we started from our place.

It was a fun hike, it took us somewhere around 4 hours to reach the desired spot and we spent somewhere around 5 hours there only.

Four of my friends are into “Rock Climbing” so they were busying doing their thing while I enjoyed the breathing, being silence, watching mountains, trees, grass & birds, sunbathing, feeling the snow and felt thankful for being in that moment.

I feel so blessed and I am thankful for the way I feel and everything I have today.

Many of you have asked me “how did I learn photography, designing, etc” and I never have a proper answer in pointers to give you and guide you and that is something there I am thankful for.

I never got any sort of academic education in visual arts or communication. I never did any course in this field. Skipping serious subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Hindi, English and sports(I enjoyed Sanskrit & Computer) was the only reason I went to art and craft class in my school time.

Then how do I have this little bit sense of design, photography, minimalism, alignment, aesthetics? 1st I believe I am blessed so thanks to god 2nd my mom(I’ll explain this in next para) and 3rd by observing & respecting great people around me.

How my mom taught me design?
- For me, design is all about staying minimal and keeping things align, neat, clean, sharp, etc.
- My mom always kept the house need and clean, kept everything on the assigned place and always forced me to do so and that how I became a person who wants to keep everything clean, placed, straight and aligned.

How observing people helped me, who are they?
- I don’t know how, when and why this happened but I am passioned about marketing, advertising, selling.
- People like Steve Jobs, David Ogilvy and brands like Nike, Adidas, FedEx, etc are the ones who inspired me a lot and while reading and learning about them I understood the value of the brand image and I got inclined towards designing.

Ahh, that’s is for today. I hope you enjoyed reading this. If you have anything in mind feel free to ask in comments or DM.

So I am not exactly in Manali, I am in a small village close to Manali called “Nasogi” but for what? What am I doing here & why so long?

So I am here because I was missing mountains and cold and also every winter I go to a cold place for example 2015: Bhutan, 2016: Nepal, 2017: Spiti, 2018: Manali(Leh, Spiti & around)

Also because I am soon going to start working on a project with @4play.in and they are based here in Nasogi and I am staying here with them only.

@4Play.in is a super cool content creation company/production house, I think I am not able to give you the right feel so why don’t you do go and check their work and decide for yourself.

Also parallely I am working with my team remotely on my other projects. 2019 will be a year full of the exciting announcement of my projects and a lot of amazing content.

So here I am living a sort of ideal life, working digitally, daily running, regular workout, close to the mountains, super cold weather, fresh air, big trees and happy me.

A few months ago I organised a photo walk in Bhopal where I met Rohit. He is kind, passionate and ready to learn and currently pursuing bachelors degree from a college in Noida.

A few weeks later he called me asking for things about HitchHiking and mentioned that he is inspired and looking forward to going on a HitchHiking Trip. I was surely happy to know about this and did whatever I could to help him and I continued with my life.

A few days ago he again texted me informing that “I’ll be going on my next HitchHiking trip soon and I’ll see you in Manali” Today morning I met him and felt something I never felt before. I was left with no words I hardly spoke to him but the whole day I kept thinking about what exactly happens and now I have some today…

You’ll go through tough time, you’ll not have money, you’ll not warm place to sleep, you’ll not get food on time and some forget the time you’ll not the food itself but I ensure you that you’ll once you are over this you’ll revere yourself for doing this.

I ensure you that your tomorrow will thank your today. You’ll be a stronger, wiser, smarter, better, improved version of yourself.

I ensure you that you’ll learn to love, respect, help, listen, share and forgive.

At last, I only request you to please fight all the tough situation and keep going.

“People who lack the clarity, courage, or determination to follow their own dreams will often find ways to discourage yours. Live your truth and don't EVER stop!”

You’ll meet many people telling you “this isn’t possible” and the reason they are telling you this is because they can’t do it. So they consider you can’t do it as well.

Yes, I had more than enough people telling the “it isn’t possible tales” as I always dream to do more than what’s practical.

The only thing I would request you here is to just listen to your heart and seek clearing from inside.
