Everlasting Cardiac Connections...

Disclaimer: Please read the post before answering the question at the end. Thanks!


Thanks all for answering the question in that last post so brilliantly. Each one of you had a beautiful view of this world, in your own opinion, and it was refreshing to read your unique thoughts on that subject. So from all your answers, some of the most beautiful things in this world are Love (most popular one), Nature, A long road with trees on either side and drizzle falling like flowers, Motherhood, Watching the Sunrise/Sunset, Feelings we experience when in love, Children, Being at complete peace with yourself, Puppies, 'Knowing' a person, Friendship, Life with its ups and downs, Being good to your parents, Imagination, A hug from a friend, One's reflection, Togetherness, Touching each other by a common invisible thread weaved in love, Eyes, The wordless smile, Affection, Colors of life, The silver lining on dark grey clouds, A genuine smile, A night sky full of stars...etc etc. Arent those answers so very BEAUTIFUL!


Here's what the guy in that movie thought the most beautiful thing in the world is:

The most beautiful thing in this world is the 'connection' between two hearts.


And that's all he said and my brain started working on that line :). Isn't that so true? I mean, be it any kind of love, the connection between 2 hearts(souls) is just amazing and unbeatable! Cos, that connection ties 2 people's hearts together, in a bond that's intangible and invisible, yet one that exists for sure and one that is so very powerful. We can go around the world looking for fame, fortune and riches...we can achieve so much in life, we can have everything in life, be it academic/financial/physical glories...but if my heart can't 'connect' to another's, I believe I have nothing. When all my work is done, when I'm ready to lay down my crowns and swords...what am I left with? My heart. And if that heart has never felt love, never reached out to someone, never 'connected' with another, then I'm actually left with nothing.


And now to why I chose that pic of earrings. Basically because an earring will never look beautiful by itself...it takes 2 of them to make it beautiful and worthwhile. The connection between 2 earrings is what makes them beautiful and valuable. And so, I believe 'connections' are one of the most beautiful, pure and long-lasting things in life. Connections take us places and make us do things that we'd never have imagined doing. They have the power to change us. And if we look at all your answers to that question, underneath all of that lives a 'connection'...be it Friendship, Love, Affection, Nature, Motherhood, Hugs etc etc. That means all of you nailed it somehow WOW! So, stay connected...not to your mobile fone, to hearts :-).


I wanna dedicate this post and song to my old blog-mate Janice. She's no longer here on Earth...I bet she's flying with the angels, experiencing new planes of love and light. But we are still connected Jan...you're not even in this world today, but my heart 'knows' your heart, and that old friendship we shared will never die. You made me realise that knowing a person like you changed me as a person inside out...I take life one day at a time because of you and your short journey here on Earth. You made a difference in my life! And that connection is still alive and I wanna keep it alive as long as I live. I love and miss ya babez MWAH!


Question: Out of all the 'connections' you have/had so far, what is the one connection that really changed you as a person and why?

girish kohli said...

hey hairy duckling... :P

i've been caught up in loads of work re since last one and half week...and so shall be for this week...been doing long hours...not my favorite thing when it comes to the do verb but thats how it is...

i so go with what the chap said in the movie...infact thats why i say people shud watch a lot of movies...lot of educative material in them :P

and that's probably why i keep reaching out to unknown people..on trains, buses, my office elevator, orkut...for i believe that one way of making people care...is to break down their silos of isoltaion

by the way i started volunteering with an ngo...it's basically an midlleman kind of ngo...what it does is instead of focussing on getting funds for other ngos...it gathers volunteers for them...visited it once...once this hectic period gets over prolly u'll hear more updates from me about it...

how about going with this slogan..."today make a stranger into an acquaintance...an acquaintance a friend"

ooh i posted from my normal id :P

Hi Keshi

Interesting post!

I never connected fact that everything in life is a result of a connection. We’re here because two people connected.

Let’s zoom back a couple of posts; I think icicles are beautiful when the sun reflects off them.

The connection most I most value is the connection I made with myself. I figured out who I am, and what I want in life. I think a person must connect with themselves before being able to connect something or somebody.

Wow! That's deep! LOL

I’m back, busy, and I already need a few days off.

LOL

mayz said...

i think all connections change us keshi...each n every person has sm kinda effect on us...good or bad...

but if u talk abt one...its my family...wat i m tdy is coz of em...everythin i do...or everythin i've done...or everythin i'll do i'll always have my parents n sis at d top of my mind...

when i dont do things for myself i do it for em...so ya datz d connection...n its been as strong since i first heard my mothers heartbest when i was in her womb :)

τ ħ€ ĐάЎđяёάmёя said...

Prayers for the jane..may her soul play golf with the angels and have sumptuous treats of all those angelic chickens :)

and right u r ..connection between two hearts is really beautiful :)...and if u say so....the feeling of communication..expressing ur feeling and watching other respond to it..is so amazing... :)

Apart from my family...
I had a girl in my life...she was the one who dug down deep in my soul and took out the child trapped inside my materialistic soul...but soon indifference kicked in and she got away..but she still have a lovely position in my life... :)

Veens said...

I remember Janice! u told me abt her..

Hope she flying high with her angels...looking down at you and smiling..

and what a b'ful thought Keshi... connection of the hearts :)

all connection have changed me in one way or the other.. from some i have learnt.. and from some i have learnt not to be their way! in the end... i have changed for the better!!!

the one connection that TRULY change dme over the yrs slowly but amazingly is the one with my family!!

and now with my bloggy friends like u... so much to learn and so much more to learn frm y'all!!

the_thinker said...

The post is really interesting...and its very thoughtful of you to have written it the way it is...
First of all i m so sorry for ur fren and undoutedly she is with angels... may her soul rest in peace... as for connection that has changed me i think it has to be my cousin sister who has been a great inspiration

Tejas Lakhani said...

@ur friend janice
may her soul rest in peace.

@ur comment in my friendship post
thanx for ur comment in my blog.

@ur question
Out of all the 'connections' you have/had so far, what is the one connection that really changed you as a person and why?


One connection that changed me as a person so far is my connection with my beloved. I become more responsible person and I will be more responsible person as the days passed by like when I get married, when I will become father and so on....

the stygian sailor said...

the one connection?
that must be to the electric wire! got the 'shock' of my life. it didn't change much. i just don't touch any wires anymore. :)

Aaarti said...

yep, i bet your friend Janice is looking down and smiling at you!!

and well said girl, about the "connection", it is so true.. so necessary.. adds value, meaning to our lives:)

Keshi said...

ty Ankur!

Keshi.

Iceman said...

To be very candid & honest I rarely connect!
And what changed me as a person was the one connection which i tried to establish... and when that fell apart, it really stopped me from even trying to connect ever again! :D

Its something that I am not comfortable with, but that's the way it is... And no matter how much I try... I am not able to connect.... may b there's a short circuit somewhere.. LOL

And may she rest in peace...

Keshi said...

Chakoli said...

A very beutiful post Keshi :)

Iagree connection could change you.. as an individual atleast u love to do what others like even u dont :)

But somehow..conncetion is as I think not necesaary with ur hubby/wife/mother/father. bro/sis/bf/gf...

It could be with any one... being someone on train...

be it ur collegaue...

or be it ur neighbour... :))

Isnt?

the stygian sailor said...

i dont have any such life altering connections. i am very shallow

Tarun said...

I think all the connections I have had have made me the person I am. so obviously there have been changes for the good and the bad.

Keshi said...

Stygian its not a matter of shallowness/depth :(

nevermind...


Keshi.

Keshi said...

ok Tarun tnxx!

Keshi.

Chakoli said...

SO true sweetie :))


Just connections are the thing which makes us live.. but dont know why they die :((

Keshi said...

Chakoli thats cos some Connections arent forever...some r just short-lived...


Keshi.

Iceman said...

then there's still a different kind of connection between u 2...or else, it cant affect u this much...

Yeah... LOL... there's a score to settle!

Srijith Unni said...

I truly value the connection I have with my family and friends, and of course, my husband.

phoenix said...

connections is what we seek throught out lives, whether we are visiting a new place-like coll/school/ new city etc

in life too we are constantly we are seeking connecions...so truly said! :)

to me my connection with a virtual friend puneet matters a lot.without a kidney,and one from his mom,his wife being a moron and refusing to grant him divorce,despite being under several restrictions due to health concerns,despite knowing that he can never be with the one person he so loves and longs to be with, despite knowing she loves him too, despite knowing his days are numbered he hasn't lost the zest for life...

i have learned to be a survivor from him

Chakoli said...

Yups tahts what wonder..
why relationship comes with expiry date :((

Tarun said...

COming back to earrings, are long earrings in Vogue.
I love long earrings.

mayz said...

i meant when m not selfish n all bothered abt myself...hehehe

Keshi said...

Nice to know that Nora HUGGGGGGGGZ!

W.o. family and friends, life will be so empty!

Keshi.

Cinderella. said...

So true Kesh !

Indeed, its the connection that keeps anything going.

RIP Janice. I agree, she is flying with angels.

I cant zero in on any single connection that has made an impact on me, I have so many ppl with whom I can really connect and our connection has helped me metamorphosise in the person I am today.

I bet its the same with you.

Keshi said...

Phoenix ty so much for sharing Puneet's story with us! I was overwhelmed reading it.


Im glad and very proud of u that it took a connection with a blog-mate for u to LEARN...it shows that it isnt always our closest loved-ones' connections that make us really CHANGE!


*HUGZ* and my best regards to Puneet!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Chakoli :)


**Yups tahts what wonder..
why relationship comes with expiry date

yes, some last long..and some dun. But what matters is that we had the best of times while it was alive..


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Tarun I love logn earrings!

Not too big n flashy tho..simple, elegant, long earrings..

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Vinz aka Vinu aka Vinayak said...

connections..! thats a word you had coined to describe many beautiful things..

i am connected to my family..and my few friends...and yeah i have seen many under stress and pain since they were never able to connect..

Its not only with relationships. As you said if you are not connected with your actions, thoughts, likings then pain is bound to follow you..!!

thnku...hugzzz :)
now dat makes me want to kno u more :)

maverick said...

well whenever i have those connections..its more often than not been one sided...and its taken alot out of me to get over them...but then as the saying goes..fighters always fight..and life goes on..new connections keep being made...for instance...i ve made a connection with u :)

SMM said...

Well the one person who really inspires me is my mother. Cliched answer, but the only true one :)


Keshi, sorry to hear about your friend. I remember reading about her in one of your previous posts as well. May she be at peace wherever she is today.

Satish Bolla said...

keshi, we do remember janice and sometimes i feel bad abt the fact that by the time i read her blog, we lost her.
well, coming back to your post, it was awesome yaar. the way u connected the earrings to ur post was simply superb.
n now the answer to ur question. the most important lesson i had learnt frm my most important connection(with her) is to help others in distress even though u never knew them. am glad that am progressing well in this aspect.

anits said...

hi keshi..hw ru...great post..u always hv creative content to post..really love ur posts..wat connection that really changed me..hmmm..mmm..may b me n my handphn.. ;)

ok gal..tcare n hv fun!

sid said...

Dearest Keshi....your recent comment reminded me of your post a long time back wherein u mentioned about the strangenes of people who are frequent on ones blog..untill they decide to disappear all together....n m not even CLOSE to one of those people..least you got thinking;-)....have been away from this space..mine as well as others...due to pre-occupied life at my end...n just dropped in once a while to some blogs since they had threatened to kill...but then i know there is more mercy in your domain..you will be more forgiving for my absence;-)...also, i hate coming by once a month...dropping a comment on the top most post and disappearing...i would rather wana read all the posts...the kind of intricate writer you are...so i wudnt even say sorry cos i know u understand what m tryin to say;-)..but u l see more of me around in another 2 weeks from now (hopefully)...waiting for the train of life to climb on to its rails;-)....

HOBO said...

Salute !
Regarding your question "That is yet to happen"
I wish that change makes me the best human of this world.
Amen !

Arv said...

Hi Keshi,

Some beautiful answers there... good to read them.

Connection between 2 hearts - it makes even the little thing special... so true & nice use of the earrings too :)

Janice - She lives on somewhere watching everyone who loved her including you; God bless her soul.

As for my life, without a doubt, my Dad. From all the family trips to odd fights, from all the principles he lived for and his early death; my few years with him is something that has made me who I'm today. I miss him, always :'(

Cheers....

*~*{Sameera}*~* said...

I visited her blog.She and her baby died?That's so saddening.May they both be happy in heaven.Amen.

Life is so unpredictable.Don't know why we waste it away in hatred and grudges.Mata eyage antima post eka kiyavala anduna,kochara balaporutu tibuna eyata eyage baba gana.

As for connection,I am what I am today because of many people,starting from my parents.Even if some are not in my life right now,the connection is still there.Cause the moments spent together were beautiful back then.

Love you sweetie.Be happy always.Hugsssss

Ria said...

Beautiful post gurl!and the best part of it had to b the last para....i dunno Janice but i remember havin tears in my eyes when i read her blog. Its sad tht somebody as lively and jolly as Janice had such a short life! But anyways i knw she there somewhere lukin at u with a warm smile.

Arjun said...

It may sound cliched - but that one person is my wife, Supriya!

Our connection is ... well... it's kinda hard to put into words.. and for once I'm actually speechless. I pride myself on being able to express.. but right about now... i'm eating humble pie!

But I won't be ME .. and she wouldn't be HER.... what we are today... without each other

Deepti said...

So very true .. but I just cant zero in on one connection ...and when I was reading this post I sat remembering so many lost connections too ... and this quote came to my mind
"Some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never the same."

vishesh said...

hmm....the best connection i ever had....might be the one with grand father or my sis...its either one of those two...:) and you bloggers :)

utopia said...

hey i am sure she is there with you always!
so many connections. they never fail to astound me but not all of them last.
this is for the ones that lasted.

Aneesh said...

Connection between two hearts?? I could say the connection of your heart to something but not to other heart!!
I've seen computer geeks who have that connection to computers and their life is that!!
Sometimes, even I too have some connection to something :)

***Out of all the 'connections' you have/had so far, what is the one connection that really changed you as a person

I don't know which connection, may be the FATE connection :) Once up on a time, I thought I can do something, I can do anything, but then I saw my dreams shatter and I realize that you can only achieve something only if you are supposed to achieve it :)

'N yah h2h connection I had with my best friend. She's married now and once in a while calls me :)

Meghna said...

A very eye- mositening psot....especially abt Janice....amy she fky high with the angels :)

Priya said...

She must be smiling as an angel looking at you.

d SINNER!!! said...

prayers for her...


abt connections, guess everything has an impact on us...be it nature, solitude, people or nything...

The connection that changed me much was through my dad first...short lived but i know those few things he taught me may not be worldly, but i live them and m happy to do so...

well, the other best impact has ben my guru...i learnt things thru him and in a better way and guess, i've grown up with his lessons...

Compassion Unlimitted said...

Very touching !
The connections of heart,friends,sibling,whatever..can anything be better

That would have to be my best bud A..have blogged about him. He is no longer here but will always be around.

Urv said...

May Janice's soul rest in peace..

What so you said about connections was beautiful.. As for answering your question, I am not able to pick THE one connection.. But I have a question.. What does the other earring do if it loses its pair.. How can it be at peace in isolation..

Jay said...

Beautiful tribute to your friend Keshi!


"Out of all the 'connections' you have/had so far, what is the one connection that really changed you as a person and why?"

That's a tough one. I would guess my friend Bobbie. She and I were bestest friends from 7th grade all the way through high school and beyond. Then we drifted apart for various reasons. But, about 3 years ago she tracked me down on the internet and it was like we had never been apart at all. She is a true friend.

rayshma said...

that is so touching, keshi. i'm sure janice is an angel now... maybe she's ur personal guardian angel? :) so she's always with u.

it's a beautiful thought. the connection between hearts... and the pic of the earrings... really refreshing interpretation. i couldn't guess from the pic yday.

one connection that changed me? the one with my bestest friend. she still lends a beautiful perspective to my thinking. she was the one from whom i learned that it's fine to be yourself. it's okay to be insane even when the whole world is trying to convert you to sanity. not because you want to be different. but because that is who you truly are.
even today, we don't call each other regularly... but if she's low, i can feel it. it's strange... but yeah, that's the way it is.

PrAcHi said...

BEAUTIFUL post keshi!
I am sure Janice is flying with angles and looking at u and thinking how lucky she was to have u as her friend..

Connection! Wonderful answer! I feel the most important connection is of friends… Bcs it’s unconditional.. :)..

AmitL said...

Hi,Keshi..that was a nice set of answers from everyone. I missed the post,but,here's my thought- the most beautiful thing in this world is 'perception'- if our perception is right,we see everything with a shining eye. If it's wrong,we see everything with a jaundiced eye.:)

And,here's a 'hats off' to your nice tribute to your friend.May her soul feel happy always,knowing that you remember her so fondly.You're a gem!

joiedevivre said...

ohh feel sory for ur frnd
but she was really lucky to hav u as frnd.

i m blessed wid beautiful life n each connection has been very special in its own way.
but yes if i hav to say abt anyone i wud say its my bst frnd.

Hemanth Potluri said...

a big tribute to ur friendship.....may she be happy with the angels....and rest in peace....

connection between hearts huh...yes it tells the true meaning of love...

ur total explanation of hearts and ear rings is soo cool..

underneath all of that lives a 'connection'...be it Friendship, Love, Affection, Nature, Motherhood, Hugs

this is so very true....

lots of love....

urs..hemu..

The Paratrooper said...

i like the way u connected connection and earrings...so simple and powerful!!.... and well may ur friends soul rest in peace....

i try to learn from all contacts i make..thts about it... more close i get to someone i push them far away myself... thts my trait i cant help it

ani said...

that was reallyy touching post..

seriously whats with us ??

same thoughts well not exactly the same thoughts.. but pretty much on the same lines..

i bet u jan is ur guardian angel and looking after u right now.. am sure she's always beside u when u r really down and laughing abt when u laugh..

its very rare you actually find or meet someone who actually knows how u r even if u dont realise it urself.. brings out the best in u and always stand beside u what ever happens..

u r lucky that u had that connection.. because sweets most ppl dont.. or even if they do.. they realise it to late to stick on to that.. or hold on to..

Ne said...

Damn You Keshi for making me cry again! hahaha!!

Very lovely post... It is wonderful that Janice touched lives as well as yours while she was here!!

My Parents connection, they have been there through sooooooo much and have picked me up many many times!!

That is one connection that I will forever hold on to... And there is a lot others but the one that changed me and defines me the most are my parents!!!

You and these wonderful heart warming posts are another connection!!

See ya later!

Zubin said...

Really sorry to hear about your friend..may her soul rest in peace.. :)

About you question...well the only person capable of changing me is me, myself..
I believe its most important to first connect yourself with yourself...Once you understand yourself, everything else is a mundane task...
So Its the connection between me with myself.

I know the answer is weird..but thats what I feel..

And dear Oh Dear..you really are beautiful...outside in..or inside out..are you for real.. :p Its too good to be true.. :p
Somebody pinch me.. ^-^

Priya Joyce said...

Hey buddy I must tell u that you always ask questions at the end of ur post tats just amazing I luv to answer those.

The connection which changed me......
its difficult to answer as from all connections affect us and bring a change in us even if it is small.
I think my connection with my best buddy changed me the most I wud say. and of course parents r always bring us a lot of changes in us.

Southpaw unplugged said...

Its very difficult to single out one particular connection in my case....

CM-Chap said...

Hey Keshi dear.. Nice thought provoking one...

I must say my connection with my father is the one which made lot of chnages in my life.

Priya Joyce said...

sorry buddy I apologize for the wrong english I used out there out of carelessness

The Phosgene Kid said...

That's easy. My connection with Mrs. Phos. Couldn't even imagine life without her!!

Kulpreet said...

Hey Keshi!

... because an earring will never look beautiful by itself...it takes 2 of them to make it beautiful and worthwhile: Beautiful thought.

Now the question: First, it is not easy to connect with anyone in the world, completely. It requires you to adjust, change and aceept a new influence. Second, connecting still is a better and more wholesome way of living your life. Thirdy, as far as I am concerned, the relationship with my wife has changed a lot of things for both of us. We have both helped each other evolve. But, it has not been easy for both of us. Ours is a near perfecty raelatioship, when I see others, but yet we have had our share of problems. She and I have worked on our relationship for thirteen years and now at last, I think it is on a smoother course.

So, like everything else, this too comes at a cost. Only, if you are adaptable, compassionate and understanding, you can actaully bond well.

Cheers!

**What does the other earring do if it loses its pair.. How can it be at peace in isolation..


even when u lose the other half of the connection, u still do hv the connection...just that one end is missing. It may feel painful to remain that way, but maybe the other half will find it's way to u some day again, in a different way?

AnonymousBlogger said...

Easy question, it would be the connection with my girlfriend.

It's made me into a complete person. I wasn't before. It's that simple.

Without her, my life would be completely different - and not for the better.

rantravereflect/ jane said...

may her soul rest in peace.. i bet she is flying with angels..:)

the best connection that changed my life- well, it's strange, but it's my relationship with God: it's off and on many a time, i sonmetimes forget to pray for days at a stretch, but then ever since i really started believing and having faith- happiness, contentment and decision-making have come easier to me, even in testing times..

there i said it :) ya make me like myself better keshigurl..
hugs n kissesss :* mwuahhh

Ankur said...

i guessed it right that u dont know where is Samby...

he is paratrooper darling!! :)

he is back and this idiot is hiding his identity god knows y!!

AmitL said...

Hi,Keshi..as I said in the comment, 'If it's wrong,we see everything with a jaundiced eye.:)'

But,then,you know,perhaps,for those with a twisted perception,the twist is also beautiful?

fingers said...

Not all earrings come in connected pairs, Keshi.
What about diamond studs...

Divkiran said...

Keshi...to u n ur friend...may god bless ya n may her sould rest in peace :)

I think every connection i have had has changed me some bit...every ones been important, good or bad...but my connection with my best friend of 18 years, who also passed away bout 6 yrs back...is one connection tht has changed me forever...dun know good or bad but never felt complete and myself after tht...loneliness has just never left, emtiness has never been filled...sigh!!! but yes the connection still stays... i too miss him like crazy n very often

sid said...

as i said..life just a bit off rails...but 2 weeks it is..cant give it more time to be back on track;-)..n u l c more f me around...

Princess Mia said...

@ ankur...yeah cause contrary to popular belief i am the idiot that believes in keeping his job..rather than the idiot who does not understand real life problems...

Sweetstickychewy said...

The earrings were a beautiful illustration Keshi.:)

I love how you see beyond something...And the way you expressed your feeling towards it. I like this post very much.

And yes i couldn't agree more with the guy...

'The most beautiful thing in this world is the 'connection' between two hearts.


Breathtakingly true...:)

SamY said...

** what is the one connection that really changed you as a person and why?

Obviously that which didn't last ;). U know it :).

I'd always been a dork and an anti-social kind :D. But then I realized there was another side to me :). I was surprised just like everyone else were :p.

It made me a much more stronger person, made me realized never to be emotionally dependent on just 1 person and loads'n'loads :).

Just that it wasn't quite a happy ending :p.

Keshi said...

Samy HUGZ!

I rem that connection...o well, often its the short-lived ones that r really powerful.


Keshi.

Zubin said...
