As she sat there in the deafening silence of the dark, she knew it was there . It was all still there and the darkness? It shone on all of what she was hiding. That’s what it does I guess . Darkness. We try so hard to confuse our mind into believing it is okay. We are okay. But then it is dark. And all the other distracting lights are off and this is all we have left. Lonliness. Grief. Sorrow. Whatever it is that plaugues even the happiest of us. She tried so hard, oh so hard to just stay away from this darkness. To always have something small or petty to worry about or obsess about so this wouldnt get to her. It worked brilliantly too. She fooled everybody, even herself for a while. But soon she ran our of things to obsess over and all she had left, was her and the cold, blinding darkness which by some irony made it easier for her to see. She would have given anything for a kind word or a small but sure hand of support. But now that she was finally in this darkness she saw it. She had been hiding from it for so long that she didnt realise that the darkness? That was exactly what she needed. That lonliness in her heart? That was her failing to understand that she had everything she needed. She had herself and that was all that mattered. So instead of treating that darkness as a shroud, she wore it, like a cape. She emerged out of the hurdles she had crafted for herself. She emerged alone, but content.
Most of our life is a series of images. They pass by us like towns on the highway. But sometimes a moment stuns us as it happens. And we know that this instant is more than just a fleeting image.-One tree hill
Hey I’m Avantika Kulkarni, just an ordinary person, living an ordinary life. But it’s these ordinary lives and ordinary moments that make our life extraordinary. Our lives are made of millions of moments. Each moment as overwhelming as the next. And these moments make up a story. Every individual has their own story.However boring they may feel their lives are,every single organism to take birth in this world has some significance. And so many of our stories collide and intersect with others.We have an impact in every life surrounding us.However small that impact may be. Not all of these moments are happy,satisfying ones. A few are meant to bring us down. A few are meant to bring a smile on our face, years later. But one thing is definite, that every single moment of our life is life changing. Everything we hear, see or say adds up to our story. So I wonder how many lives we change, and how many lives change us? It is like a picture taken in a public place, which includes people who were not intended to be in it,but are in it nevertheless.That just means that every person who enters and exits our life is there for some definite reason. It makes me happy to think that all the suffering we go through when something goes wrong in our life has some significance except for to make our lives miserable. It somehow makes the suffering a lot more bearable, knowing that something good might come of. All the times we fall,and rise up again teach us to keep going on,and that hope is all we have in this world. Every moment gives us the courage to wake up the next day and continue however tough it may be. And what else could one ask for?
P.S-Hey I’m new to blogging..so please bear with it..Thanks 😀

Most of the time, it feels like everything is upto your throat.
Like, your loneliness is an living organism, ready to jump out.
At least you have a companion now.
Why are you lonely?
Who made you this way?
You stood up for your kin.
You stood up for your kind.
They left you, there, standing alone.
Are you tired of standing?
Do you want to sit down maybe.
How can you sit?
Who will stand up for your kin?
Who will stand up for your kind?
You gave them all you had.
You gave them all they have.
Giving is in our hands,
Getting, not in our destiny.
You smile, you laugh.
You try so damn hard.
The world is not an easy place. For souls like you, I really fret.
For, you stand up for your kin.
And you stand up for your kind.
Why, oh then,
Do they leave you behind?

( P.S- Hey guys..I’m not really much of a poet…this is more like a string of feelings. But let’s call it my attempt at poetry. Them poets, my apologies. Thank you for reading.)
When we see, on Facebook or so,that a book will be adapted into a movie, we rush to the bookstore. We rush to read the story, so we can be overwhelmed by the words, before the movie takes over our imagination.
One of the facts I absolutely adore about books, is that as we read, the book stops being a series of words.Instead it is like we have fallen into their world, and are watching it through a pensive ( Yay! Harry Potter reference) I love how the words mean something different to everyone. What everyone sees in their minds eye is different. Btw while we are at it, the fact that we ‘see’ without actually seeing, is one of the greatest phenomenon I know. Hey, look I’m off topic again!
So, we all see characters differently, and when the movie comes out, we suddenly start seeing the actors instead. This makes me a little sad. Also, there is the obvious prospect that they might ruin the story which took over our hearts.
Having said that, the second I know that a book is being adapted, I run to pre-book the tickets. Because who’s going to miss that chance?
So getting to the actual point, the movie of the book ‘Before I Fall’ is set to hit the theatre, on March 3rd,2017. And it’s time, you pick up this lovely, heart-thrashing book.The concept of this book is so wildly mind blowing. It gave a new outlook to my perception of death. I love hearing new theories of what happens after death. So this book was absolutely beautiful.
Samantha ‘Sam’ Kingston, is a regular teenager, in high school. She is one of the ‘ Mean Girls’ or ‘The Plastics’ or whatever we are calling them this year. While she is in a car with her friends, there is an accident and she dies.
You know , when the protagonist dies in the first few pages of the book, that this book is going to be a complete ride.
Sam wakes up the next morning, after her death, and it is the same day. The day she died. She soon realises she is reliving these day she had died. She is stuck in a circle. She has to get out of it.
She lives the same day, again and again. She makes changes. She does things which surprise her family, friends and even herself. We see her slowly fall in love, with the boy she couldn’t care less about, in the beginning.
All throughout the book, we know that the end is inevitable. We know there can’t be much of an outcome. But we wait, and we hope. We hope Sam Kingston makes it out. And she does.
To find out how she does, well, you’re going to have to give it a read.
This book, makes us introspect our life, and our self. If we were to die, today, would we be satisfied? Satisfied with how we leave the world. Or would we want to live our life a different way.
So look inside you.Look inside you and tell me.
Would you be satisfied having to live this day, as your very last?
HEYYY!! ARE YOU’LL HAVING A GOOD DAY?
