Expectations sprout
Give birth to hope, then make an
Exit silently…

Expectation is a very natural feeling. you may try hard but heart has a strong tendency to expect.

A huge smile may evolve from an expectation but generally expectations are something that gives you disappointment. You nourish your hopes delicately. you wait for something eagerly. But when you expect too much, either you get nothing or some more waiting, and it really...really feels bad.

I think it's a psychological feeling. You might have experienced that even 'Small' things received unexpectedly give immense pleasure and a 'Small' unfulfilled expectation gives disappointment. 

But, sometimes, something pleasant happens unexpectedly. You must have seen this cute advertisement. Really, kuchh unexpected mile to achchha lagta hai...

  1. I guess life would have been easier if we had no expectations ... but as humans, that can never be possible :-)

  2. The moment we get hurt...We start giving lecture to ourselves that we shouldn't expect anything from anyone...But, again....We expect...We get hurt...And the cycle goes on!

    Good one Tarang! :)

  3. If only when we first see a person or saw the speak, we would expect nothing, but that is not so.
