Give someone a hug today

Jaadu ki jhappi was popularized in India by our very own Munna Bhai, MBBS(2003) where the protagonist insisted on curing people with a hug.

A video released in YouTube in September, 2006 depicts its main character as giving out hugs as he walks through the Pitt Street Mall, Sydney, holding up a sign with the words FREE HUGS written on it. You can read his story here

Today was a day when I felt like I could do with a hug. But since I didn't go out with a banner, I think I can ask you to hug someone who's with you right now. You never know who needs it until you give it.

This is my first comment-though I've been following your blogs since last 1.5 yrs or so.Actually I'd recd your first mail way back in 2005 when I was in Ladakh.Ami jaantaam na je tumi aeto bodo Blogger !!In Fact you've inspired me to start a blog of my own.Anyway you really have a gift with words! Keep it up !!As regards hugs- I also believe that we should hug anybody & everybody we love or care about so that they also know it.

Thanks :)
It seems like a long time ago. I started blogging in my undergrad days. Don't know if I have a way with words, but they have a way with me. Some might find it weird, but when I feel restless, I start reading a word list. And believe it or not- it calms my senses :)
Some listen to music, some might even read multiplication tables... so I guess it's ok. Everyone has his/her own way of unwinding.

Btw, carry on hugging :)

Those who wanted the lyrics for "All the Same" by Sick Puppies:

I don't mind where you come from
As long as you come to me
I don't like illusions I can't see
Them clearly

I don't care no I wouldn't dare
To fix the twist in you
You've shown me eventually
What you'll do

I don't mind...
I don't care...
As long as you're here

Go ahead tell me you'll leave again
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
And I'll take you for who you are
If you take me for everything
Do it all over again
It's all the same

Hours slide and days go by
Till you decide to come
And in between it always seems too long
All of a sudden

And I have the skill, yeah I have the will
To breathe you in while I can
However long you stay
Is all that I am
