The F-word is not just the F-word. True, it is used around the globe to express anger, joy, happiness or disgust, but over the years we have held our own definitions of F word in our head and heart. While for some it is Facebook, to many others it is still Floyd. The F-word has crossed boundaries and forced us to create newer ones. Here are my top five F-words that I cannot live without.
1. Friday : My Friday definition changed as I grew up, from ‘Yeah, no home work tomorrow’ to ‘let’s party tonight’. What remained same is the freedom, the joy, the happiness out of it. Be it School, College or Job, Fridays are always special, first day show of a Harry Potter movie with a best friend or pizza party with the team, Friday happiness is something so ineffable. 2. Friends: Happiness is having a best Friend, how true. From mending a broken heart to dragging you to a movie on a boring Sunday afternoon, from best birthday surprises to guffawing around, who can do it in a better way? And this, my friend is a never ending list. 3. Films: Films always inspire us in some way or the other. They lift us and take us to our happy place even if it’s for few minutes. Some of them even create an indelible impression in our mind. And that is why they are marvelous, they give us hope. (Well most of them) “This part of my life… this part right here, this is called happiness”. 4. Facebook: No denying the fact that Facebook irrevocably changed our life. To me Facebook is more than just a social networking site. It has brought back my old friends, created newer ones. To many others it is about finding their love, touting their businesses, searching jobs or simply relaxing after a hard day at work. No wonder, today Facebook is having over 1.5 billion active users. 5. Fun: We are so incomplete without it. I look for fun everywhere to keep the dullness away, to make the world sane and to know that there is good in the darkness. Fun makes us write, live and most importantly to keep us going.
