Take Me As I Am...

(Note: for my tribute post to Jacko, please read last post)

Disclaimer: Please note that this post is not yet another post for my bday. I already did one last week :). This post is to highlight the importance of accepting one another for who they are and forgiving one another somehow. Please read the post before you comment. I don't want people to dimiss the message in the post at the sight of the cake. Thanks!


This is the lovely bday cake my cuz made for me...I love it, totally!












She first asked me if I wanted a particuar cake. I asked her to make anything she wanted, with what she knew about me so far...I asked her to use her imagination.













She came up with SHOES ofcourse! ;-) Isn't she brilliant? Manolo Blahniks on a neatly iced Pink cake...very girly and very KESHI to say the least ;-)













These are the 3 cakes that she made for me, my mum and another cuz...we all celebrated our bdays together yesterday at my cuzn T's place.


*click on pics to enlarge*


It was an amazing night. It was a 3-bday marathon that totally rocked! And yes, though I didnt want to have a party this year, my cousins and friends insisted that I had one and I'm glad I went. We had a great time...family, friends, great food, lots of sweet presents (omg I got a Versace perfume set too! And Lingerie *now I'd have to wear em and show em to myself!* and some other hot items as well...). And I wanna thank TT, Hemz, Krys, Jay and Suree for making beautiful bday blog posts for me last week, and for ALL your wishes here in my blog, emails, txts and calls!
*TY n MWAH!*



And ofcourse Music. Wherever Keshi goes, Music follows too. Without Music, there won't be a Keshi. Last night at the party, it was 'strictly' Michael Jackson. There were countless times in my life when I didn't wanna get out of my car cos I wanted to finish listening to the MJ song that was playing in my car. Right now in my car CD-player, there's a MJ cd in there. I loved his music to death. So last night at the party, we all wanted to remember him, his music and yes we boogied the night away to his great dance numbers. Blame it on Jacko, cos he infected us with the dance virus and now we can't get rid of it! However, though I was at a party, I was feeling this very personal sense of loss and I couldn't get my mind away from his death. I know, that with his death, a part of me died too. In between my dancing, I cried. I always danced to forget...but last night, I danced to remember.


After MJ's death, I will never look at life under the same light again. There are alot of unanswered questions and alot of judgements. People talk about Jacko as if they never make a mistake in their entire lives. Jackson had feelings and a heart too, just like you and me. He's somebody's son, somebody's brother, somebody...just like you and me. The difference is he GAVE alot to the world and got nothing much in return. He still didn't care, he continued doing what he's best at doing. And if our personal lives and our every move were to be on the News, I'm sure we'd all be labelled 'crazy' too. No one has the right to judge another's personal life. We all have our likes, dislikes, ways, perferences, lifestyles, attitudes, wierdness, similarities, differences, the best and the worst. That means we are all the same on scales. So let's not play God. We are all human and being such a public figure, and living such a public life, I'm sure Jacko had his own share of demons to fight every single day...demons that people like us would never know of. I wonder why people can never accept someone 'different'. Is there some kind of strict code that people have to follow in life? I don't think so. We all get different challenges thrown at us in life, we all deal with them differently, we all have different views. Bite it folks, we may all be the same but we are all different. That's the beauty of this world.


Do you accept people for who they are? I do. You know why? Cos I myself make mistakes, may appear crazy to you, may be different, may have a life that's not just like your's...but this is me...this is my life. And I'd like to be accepted for who I am, and not for who you want me to be. Do you forgive people? I do. I give people second chances. Cos I'd like to be forgiven when I make mistakes too, cos I'm only human. And I know you are too. We can beat someone up endlessly for a mistake they did or for being different, but that doesn't make us any better than them. But if we choose to accept people for who they are, forgive one another, then really, that would make you a better person than many out there.


One day in your life, I hope you'll remember all the people you met in your life path, and be glad that you accepted them for who they were, and not for what you wanted them to be...



One day in your life
You'll remember the love you found here
You'll remember me somehow
Though you dont need me now
I will stay in your heart
And when things fall apart
You'll remember one day . . .

Absolutely agree with you on everything here without exception. I felt cheated on hearing his death. Was choked completely. Don't think there is anyone in this world who hasn't grown up listening to him regardless of lingo. Was a wake up call for me. So much to do, so less time and also at least make a difference if not anything else. Gone Too Soon.

White Magpie said...

oh what a cake. I couldnt see it initially. I hope you didn't bother the scales after that ;)

Devika said...

Oh that was One of a Cake -- I have never seen something like that! :))

and then...Imagine Keshi, if we were all cloned to look and feel alike...if they changed us all,

Oh so boring life on this world would be!

Yet we change, influenced by others....call it advancement of the self,

MJ or ME -- to err is human, and love is love only if its unconditional,

wishes,
devika

Rakesh Vanamali said...

I can relate to how U feel about MJ! Its pretty much the same I feel to! To lose out someone who has been a idol all throughout childhood and beyond, is very difficult!

We will miss him!

And, great cake there Keshi!

Margie said...

OMG, that cake is amazingly beautiful & I bet it was yummy!
The other cakes are great too!
Keshi, I'm so glad you had a good time at the party in between ur being sad :(
And, yes u got me to crying all over again, like u knew I wud :(

Love u keshi for being the wonderful person u r!
You touch my heart!

Nitey nite, I'm turing in.
Have a good day!

Coco said...

birthday?! oh wow...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
Hope you had a very WONDERFUL day...weekend ; ) May God continue to bless you- showering you with LOVE, HEALTH, HAPPINESS, AND PEACE.
Hugs!!

♪♪HARINI♪♪ said...

woah!!!! im all groggy eyed with hardly any sleep and this post made my head spppiiiinnn!!!!!!

but yeah, i do agree... i am glad that everyone was the way they were cos that WAY they contributed to making me how i am... they at least gave me company sometime in my life... but i wouldn't like to come off as a person who always forgives, cos others tend to take advantage of it... there is this person who always said something which wasnt true and when i went against it, she would start crying. later she would call me back, apologise and say "im feeling bad all because of you!!" i mean, what sort of a person says that??

so i guess im kinda happy the way i am... but i can always change for the better..

:)
take care

hugz

ZiLliOnBiG said...

WOW, by the look of the cakes you had a blast of a bday. Lovely cake...Makes me wanna celebrate my bday the next time, though i never do. I party for my wives, friends but i forget mine unless someone calls me in the morning to remind.

Re: MJ, Infact, my first foray into the world of western music was through listening to MJ. *Thriller* was the first cassette I ever purchased myself, after saving bits and pieces of pocket money, and I had no remorse in spending that hard sweated out money on a cassette.

He is what Beatles or Presley was for our Dads generation.

May his soul rest in peace!!!

ZiLliOnBiG said...

and you have said it quite rightly. To forgive is to be forgiven in return, coz we are all human and we make mistakes.Only way to get Love is to love. Lovely message there.:))

Think Tank said...

about jackson keshi...only you could have said those things..another treason why you deserved that birthday post..muah

DPhatsez said...

Awesome cake!
Nice Post!

Have a good one mate!

vishesh said...

ha ha now time to see what I can do for my birthday ;)

Yup we never accept people the way they are...But there is more to it than that...in this case whatever Mj's actions were , he was a great artist , I am not a huge fan of him , but some how his songs have a sort of 'feel' to it , which make you enjoy it ...

tulipspeaks said...

That's is an absolutely wonderful birthday cake, Keshi. Glad you had a great time! :-)

As for MJ, whose music has inspired many, I can only hope for his soul to rest in peace. He has already suffered enough during his life.

hugs!

Tarun said...

I don't want people to dimiss the message in the post at the sight of the cake.

I almost did.

This is not fair I land up late in office, half hungry half dispair and half mad, and u get to see this sumptuous cake and u wanna have something equally delightful.

*starts making plan to run to a near coffee shop after lunch*

Shoes and lingerie ... well no comments aout those.

But yeah great minds will always face the most feirce opposition from petty minds.

The various surgeries,medication or drugs, he had to undergo wouldn't have all been choices,some would have been compulsion.

Personally for me, people wanted to just find a blemish,but then what he was able to do others would be happy just ddreaming of it.

Anamika. said...

That's it! I'm hiring you to make my next birthday cake!

If I already didn't say so, you look gawjus xD

And about MJ : listen to his songs! They'll keep you alive :)

ZiLliOnBiG said...

sorry, TYPO, No 'wives', only wife's. i just have one.
i meant wife's..:))))

Jeevan said...

Its cute cakes keshi

"And if our personal lives and our every move were to be on the News, I'm sure we'd all be labelled 'crazy' too."

u said it right, our secrets are hidden and our mistakes are unnoticed to public.

Mind will never continue to be the same and so as mistakes are not the only things remain and more than mistakes there’re many good thing to see at one.

"we may all be the same but we are all different. That's the beauty of this world."

People have so many things to agree, but they never come to meet each others. Watching the only blue sky will not always make interest, we need clouds to draw images, stars to twinkle our nights and moon to portrait our love.

MultiMenon said...

I second you,true..I have always wished ppl around took me as I am as against who they want me to be.

I cannot comment on MJ on the whole coz I have not really been inspired by his or anyother western forms of music.Hesure is a great man,and u wer right,he gave soo much to this world but did not get much in return..Sad!! :(

The cakes were too good-looking,fittingly suiting the birthday gal.. :)

Take care sissy,coz I care.. :)

Priya Joyce said...

!Teq-uila Del Zapata said...

not been able to see atleast three posts of your blog, and worst part is i missed ur buday blog.
I did, however sent u a e-greeting, did u get it? i am not very sure of that e-greeting service thing. they suck at time.

Anyway A very very very happy buday to you. I pray to god to give you all happiness in the world and whatever you desire in life. I am sure this year will be bring some more Deigos in ur life ;)
And I appologize for this late greeting.

Anyway, a great musician has left the world. Although i dont listen pop much, but Micheal Jackson is someone, who has made a mark on me, for sheer talent he has. And huge amount of work he has done for people. And really feel sorry for people, who talk bollshyt abt this great musician, and why should someone care abt his personal life? let him rest in peace.

Hey Belated Happy Birthday!!! The cake looks yummy!!

Arv said...

That was really sweet of your cousin... shoes on cake :P

kewl idea :)

Glad that you had a lovely time da...

take care and have a good night :)

p.s. as I read the title, I went like - Yes, I would :P

akanksha said...

First of all, Belated Happy Birthday Keshi!

I was away for some time...buzy with work and some personal issues as u had read in my last blog post.
Sorry for being late :( But I wish the best for you in everything u do, from every corner of my heart.

And the cake looks Yummyyyy :) I loved the shoes there!!!

I second you on everything u mentioned abt MJ...Hope his soul rests in peace.

Take Care dear

Jack said...

Keshi,

We all make mistakes - big ones or small ones. Only if you make some mistake deliberately harming someone that is to be deplored. It is a fact that persons who are intelectuals have a streak of some craziness too. As long as it does not harm someone we have no right to comment on it. I agree we should accept people for what they are and not what we would like them to be.

Take care

La vida Loca said...

Ohhh lovely cakes!!

Suresh Kumar said...

Nice Cake... You really must have enjoyed the birthday....

MJ and his songs... He tried to 'Heal the world' with his nice and beautiful songs... Billie Jean is my favorite.

rayshma said...

i have started accepting ppl for who they are... the way they are. and i've started it rather recently. i used to be quite judgemental... and hadn't realized it.
then, i did. and worked to change it. i'm glad that i did.

that's a lovely tribute to MJ there. read both posts together today... and well... all i can say is RIP, MJ. his legacy lives on.

Phoenix said...

ooo i so loved the cake and my my someone must have been mighty pleased..with her shoe fetish! :)

belated happy birthday!

Neethu said...

Gawd!what a cake...yumm..btw happy belated bday!:)

яノςんム said...

May God shower his choicest of blessings on you :)

andwhy did i miss to wish u? cuz there is no electricity in my town.. the monsoons are late and the summer is scorching!! phew!!

anyways,
Michael Jackson is a real loss to the world of music.. So very unfortunate to know he is no more.. :(

The birthday cake is excellent idea :D n looks yummm too :)

Love!!

Fiducia said...

amazing post...:)
agree with you on every word...
he seriously left us so soon...:(
will always miss him..
n yeah, great b'day treat..:)
enjoy!!

Trinnie said...

Hi Keshi,

I know how you feel and I'm with you on that...

I couldn't quite believe that MJ died and was amazed at the dirt the media was raking up.

Anyway, wish you a belated Happy Birthday!

I dont think you realise but I have been a silent spectator on ur blog. I dont know how i ended up like this knowing how much I loved blogging!

But I just want to tell you that Im with you, even though I dont comment, I read your blog everyday.

I have been thinking of posting on my blog for a while, but I dont know what to say. i guess im just lazy. Other times Im busy.

I have been working for over a year now covering business news. I had moved to New Delhi for six months last year, now I'm back at home in Mumbai. Just after the terror attacks.

Anyway, u take care and good luck!

hugs,

Khushita.

Anu said...

Happy Belated Bday Keshi!! and Im was drooling looking at the cakes.

About MJ,your right about sense a personal loss. And yes ppl judged him too harshly and now they all are crying themselves hoarse about what a great artist he was.. He wouldnt have needed those painkillers, if they had done the same when he was alive..

Mayz said...

ok wishin u a happy birthday again keshi...

me likes d cake...cut me a slice pls :)

i think i kinda wrote d exact opposite of this post...hmmm..u gave a different meanin to all this

Sach! said...

Hey Kesh! Yappiiiee Bud-day.....
Sry nt blogging much...hwz u??
Cakes seem 2b 2 wful!!

Neither do I forgive nor do I forget!
And MJ...yea made my childhood musical! :/ RIP!

Shachi said...

OMG - look at the cakes! YUMM-O!

Which versace perfume did u get? I recently finished a bottle of Versace Bright Crystal and LOVED it :)

I did not grow up listening to MJ....did not listen to a lot of music....but I do like all his songs.

Although, my favourite one from him is "Heal the world"....

Acceptance is key - in any relationship, under any circumstances....I've had to do a lot of it after being married and it's always hard, but it is making me a much stronger person from inside....which is good!

Great great post as usual...we must talk sometime over the phone :)

Keshi said...

Magpie ur right...cheated is the word! I still feel that way :(

Keshi.

Keshi said...

And Magpie...

**So much to do, so less time and also at least make a difference if not anything else

ur spot on there! no time to brood and carry grudges..cos we dunno when our number will be up.


** hope you didn't bother the scales after that

ur right abt that too! ;-)


ty!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Devika!

yep it will be a stupid world if all of us were ALIKE.


**and love is love only if its unconditional,

very true!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Rakesh!

As I listen to his songs, all the memories of my life come crashing down...cos thats when I listened to some of his songs..and it hurts badly right now.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

aww ty Margie!

Im thinking of MJ all the time...I cannot get rid of the pain :(


*HUGZ*

Keshi.

Keshi said...

aww my darling friend Coco ty!

*HUGZ* yes I had a great time :)


Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Harini!

** am glad that everyone was the way they were cos that WAY they contributed to making me how i am

I agree.


**... but i wouldn't like to come off as a person who always forgives, cos others tend to take advantage of it...

well if someone keeps repeating the same mistakes, u tell them that. Thats all u hv to do. But u surely dun hv to keep a grudge on em for that d u? :)

Forgiving someone is not abt welcoming their mistakes all the time or being taken advantage of. It's abt showing them the right way.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Zillion!

Yes MJ was definitely our era's KING of Pop.


** I party for my wives,

lol ok I got that the first time ard. ;-)

I dun wanna celebrate my bday so big, but I cant seem to escape my fam & friends :)


Keshi.

Keshi said...

**Only way to get Love is to love.

Agree totally Zillion!

And MJ is a good example. He gave so much LOVE to the world. And the way ppl r mourning his death today, from Rio to Sydney, shows how much he is LOVED too. We dun need any other proof for that.

He gave love and got love.

Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey ty TT! ;-)

ur a wonderful girl!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Dphatsez!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Vish when exactly is ur bday? I keep forgetting so many bdays :(


**in this case whatever Mj's actions were , he was a great artist

true...it's his showmanship and brilliance that I miss so very much. And as a person too, he was very innocent...like a kid.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Ammu!

**He has already suffered enough during his life.

Spot on! He suffered way too much in Life..I hope gets some peace in Death.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Tarun!

haha so did u get some cake yday?

**Shoes and lingerie ... well no comments aout those.

that was a comment btw ;-)



**But yeah great minds will always face the most feirce opposition from petty minds.

I so agree! When someone is THAT brilliant, there will always be alot of darts coming his way.


**The various surgeries,medication or drugs, he had to undergo wouldn't have all been choices,some would have been compulsion.

yes thats right. He didnt turn white cos he was ashamed of being black. He suffered from a skin condition called Vitiligo...thats an immune system disorder that makes one lose pigmentation.

besides, he had a terrible accident while doing a Pepsi ad and burnt his hair.

All these unfortunate events in Jackson's life made him turn to plastic surgery and skin grafts etc...and it ended up making him look 'different'. SO WHAT? is my qn.

I wonder what one of us would do in any of those situations. If we had the money, Im sure we'd do all that too.

All those ppl who ridicule Jackson r dreaming of the fame that Jackson had...ur absolutely right there!



Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Anamika!

:) but I didnt make that cake...my cuz did. u can hire her hehe...

yep Im always listening to Jacko's songs now..but I always did anyways.


:(

Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey ty Nikhil! :)

I love the cake too...so pretty!

yes..MJ was THE BEST.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Joyce!

yeah the News always tore apart Jackson's image. Bloody vultures. I wonder how these rumor-mongers sleep at night!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty for ur warm Diegoish wishes Anuz! :)


**I did, however sent u a e-greeting, did u get it?

nope. but thats ok. I know u ALWAYS wish me well hehe.


Abt MJ...yes he did alot to the world..he donated so much in charity...he wrote brilliant songs...he reached out to ALL equally. And he didnt get much in return...now ppl miss him badly. Serves them right.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Keshi said...

ty Jack!

**Only if you make some mistake deliberately harming someone that is to be deplored.

Agree totally.


**It is a fact that persons who are intelectuals have a streak of some craziness too.

Spot on! Most brainiacs are maniacs too :)

I love the manic side of Jacko tho...he was comfy with himself so why do we bother abt it?

**He wouldnt have needed those painkillers, if they had done the same when he was alive..

very well-said!

u know I read abt MJ recently (before his death), that he was very ill, and in and out of the hospital all the time. But did anyone care abt him then? NO.

So many ppl r dying over his death now. It is a tad too late isnt it!

Bday cakes are amazing!!!!
Thank you for sharing!
Yummy!

Ah,
"One Day in Your Life" was always my favorite.

Lovely song that Keshi! One day in you life.
I agree with all that you say for the mighty MJ.
RIP.

The cakes look so yummy, where's my share??? :P

I absolutely agree.

I'd only say one more thing: I hope he died a content man :(

How are u today, my sweet friend?
Right now, I am soooo tired & going to bed very soon.
Was packing for my upcoming trip today & cleaning house (gotta have a nice clean house when we return)
We leave for Mexico early Thurs. am....my baby is getting married, can't believe it but soooo happy 4 her!

Hey, I wrote this little poem for u today.

LOVELY THINGS
The world is full of lovely things
Like morning glistening with diamond dew ...
The burgeoning of Spring ...
Young birds on wings ...
Soft raindrops splashing on the pane ...
And, then there's YOU!!!

MWAH!

and the pearls of wisdom flow:)
it's very simple actually, if u live ur life on ur own terms and do not change or conform for others, one shud also not xpect others to be what we want them to be, they have as much right to live life on their own terms!!!

neways, to the point now, did ya get smeared:P

- Sugar Cube - said...

Wow! The shoe on the cake is very innovative.

About the way media highlights MJ's lifestyle..its sad.Why can't people remember & appreciate the good & forget the bad ?

'I wonder why people can never accept someone 'different'. Is there some kind of strict code that people have to follow in life'

Right on! I was thinking the same.There are many ppl who have been making filthy remarks on MJ & it completely sucks.What has anybody got to do with how he wanted to live is life ? He defined music for us ..why not just enjoy that much.
Wish people just get that little thing right into their tiny brains!

Satish Bolla said...

keshi, all these days, i thought we r good friends. but now, am sure we are not. sorry to say this. ok, ok let me tell you the reason why.

because, u posted pictures of those mouth-watering cakes but never gave me any piece of it!!!!

anyways, u wrote something abt forgiving. so, i forgive u and we r friends again. jus kidding buddy.

these lines "I wonder why people can never accept someone 'different'. Is there some kind of strict code that people have to follow in life?" r simple but thought provoking.

Cess said...

forgive people is not always easy, specially when this person intentionally tried to hurt u, i can forgive someone who hurt me not on purpose because this person made a mistake where the result hurt me, but i can t really forget someone who did it on purpose to hurt me, y would i give to this person this privilege and forgive him like any other person?

As for Jackson, no matter how he was as a person, his music will live on forever.

but well if they dont listen, its so not your problem thereafter!! cos you cant help it anymore!! i know you can keep trying but both sides need to cooperate, at least a slight lil bit!

Good to know you had a wonderful birthday Keshi Girl. Let every year, everyday be like this for you.

To answer your question ""Do you accept people for who they are?"...I guess everyone of us do accept people as they are.Only difference is, for few people that realizationa and acceptance comes at early stage of life, for some very late. We all do introspection knowingly or unknowingly, when ego takes upperhand, we remain what we are. When realization takes upperhand, ego is dropped.

God bless you always.

iriz said...

those were nice cakes, and i guess it's so you! lucky you have people who show their love for you in different forms.

Mj will always be a legend, no matter what they say...

love music.

Shanu said...

Wow lovely cake..with shoes n all..every gals dream!!

*** I wonder why people can never accept someone 'different'. Is there some kind of strict code that people have to follow in life? I don't think so. We all get different challenges thrown at us in life, we all deal with them differently, we all have different views. Bite it folks, we may all be the same but we are all different. That's the beauty of this world***

Totally agree with this..I guess ppl are too judgemental abt others and kinda tend to overlook thr own shrtcomings and follies

Keshi said...

ty!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Sunshine girl!

ur share was emailed to ya ;-) lol kidding!

Im not sure if Jackson died a content man..sadly, he cudnt hv. cos apparently he was quite stressed out at the upcoming concerts, he was very ill and hated life towards his last days. And Im sure he wudnt hv been happy to leave his children n die so young...

His story is so v heartbreaking girl!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Rashmi!

I guess ur right. I love them alot and left it upto them to love me bak ;-)

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Margie that was a beautiful thought. What u wrote there was in my heart the whole day yday and wil be there forever now. TY!


**And, then there's YOU!!!

*HUGZ* TC and hv a beautiful time at the wedding! My best wishes to ur lovely daughter!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey CN nah I didnt get smeared thank God! :)


**it's very simple actually, if u live ur life on ur own terms and do not change or conform for others, one shud also not xpect others to be what we want them to be, they have as much right to live life on their own terms

very well-said!

yes, it's SIMPLE, if we care to THINK.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Sugar! :)

**What has anybody got to do with how he wanted to live is life ? He defined music for us ..why not just enjoy that much.

Spot on! I cant u'stand why ppl always, I mean ALWAYS, pick on the not-so imp details of a person.


And it's appalling how papers hv headlines speaking of MJ's autopsy details! It was v sad to see how some ppl wud do anything for a quick buck and 15mins of attention. When he was alive they didnt leave him alone...now that he's dead, they r still going on abt his hair, skin, this n that! ITS SO VERY SAD.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

aww tnxx again Anuz :)

Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Satish!

**so, i forgive u and we r friends again.

HAHA ty for forgiving me ;-)


Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Cess! :)

Forgiving someone who hurt u intentionally is not easy...I agree. I hv been there.

But u know what...I wanted to try the HARDER path in life...so I tread it. Forgiving isnt easy...but when I tread on that path, and worked on it, I found out that I really cud forgive them....cos I myself am not God.


**but i can t really forget someone who did it on purpose to hurt me, y would i give to this person this privilege and forgive him like any other person?

Forgetting is harder than forgiving..I agree. But blame it on the complex structure of our MIND :)


Keshi.

Keshi said...

And Cess, it's quite healing to forgive others...it puts u on top and makes u resilient to any hurt.

Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Hobo I emailed ya some cake, didnt ya get em? ;-)

MJ is THE BEST. No doubt abt that!

:*(

Keshi.

Keshi said...

MWAHHHHHHZ Caz ty!!! ;-)

Keshi said...

ty Ramya!

**And the shoes, I could eat them for a lifetime and wear them to death!

LOL I agree! Im such a shoe-whore too :)


No one can move like MJ, just no one!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Harini!

**but well if they dont listen, its so not your problem thereafter

it wasnt YOUR problem to begin with :)

someone else's mistakes arent ur's. but u can try to show them the right way and if they dun listen, nothing changes anyways...cos it wasnt ur problem to begin with.


*HUGZ*

Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Nirmal!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

**We all do introspection knowingly or unknowingly, when ego takes upperhand, we remain what we are. When realization takes upperhand, ego is dropped.

I so agree! well-said there.

Keshi said...

Keshi said...

Mysterious Mia said...

beautiful post dearie, absolutely heart felt, crisp message :)

n the cakes look sooooooooo good :)yummy

Shionge said...

Hiya Keshi, I am sorry I've missed your Birthday and I am so happy that you had a great time with your Family & Friends.

I am sorry MJ's death caused much pain, grief & sadness to people around the world. I 'grew up' with MJ too and I remembered dancing to Beat It specially on my 21st Birthday.

You asked "Do you accept people as who they are" and questions unanswered over all the media frenzy about MJ. I have no answers to that but I know celebrities always paid a high prize over their fame - dead or alive!!

Still, I just wanna wish you a Belated Happy Birthday Pal :D

The Rat... said...

Gosh.... y didnt i get such a cousin.. my couin doesnt even know my bday :-P

great cakes Kesh.... enjoy madi...


sorry for being late :-(

Dalicia said...

happy birthday my dear. lovely cake!!! :D only one and only keshi

Priya said...

Acceptance is more like knowing yourself. Its comes from witin and we alla ccept others as who they are. If some change, its becoz of their own freedom or pressure.

Forgiven is almost like sharing and we shud forgive if not we are a body with no blood to feel the heat.

Keshi said...

hey ty Menchie ;-)

Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey ty Mia :)

Keshi.

Keshi said...

aww ty Shionge! *HUGZ*

I always tried to dance like MJ...but I cud never get that same speed and precision. He's a very special humanbeing! I'd look like an idiot next to him lol!


**celebrities always paid a high prize over their fame - dead or alive!!

I so agree! And thats not fair tho. Just cos they're celebrities, we dun hv the right to bag them.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Rat thats cos I make sure my cousins know that IM ALIVE ;-)

*HUGZ*

Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Dal ty sweetie ;-)

Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Priya!

**we shud forgive if not we are a body with no blood to feel the heat.

well-said there!

Keshi.

Ria said...

Wow!!the cake sure looked yummy...i m sorry i missed it. Lovely post gurl and yes its amazing to be a cancerian. :P :) (we rock!!dont we!?)

And give a big hug from my side to ur mom, who's jus so sweet!!


And wht u said abt MJ is so true! Everybody does mistakes, but when they r gone, plz dont criticize them for wht they were...try to appreciate them for the person they were, when alive. I always do that.

Dawn....सेहर said...

Belated Happy Birthday dear! June 24th always reminds me of you and this time also I remembered you only thing was that it was in my heart and I couldn't come here and wish you! I apologize...things have been very busy at work! People getting lay offs and that task coming on my head...so it just kept on piling.
Hope you had a good time dear :)
Always enjoy life rest all will fall in place
God Bless You
With love and hugz

Keshi said...
