Phoenix tagged me- list five of your obsessions. It actually gave me an opportunity for self-introspection .So thanks to her !!
# Blogging : Needless to say why its on top of the chart. I blog to live and live to blog. My life began on blog and will end on it. Blogger has been a life support system. In fact,
What is life if full of care,
There is no time to blog and share !

Readers, are you convinced or should I go on ?
# Internet: A lifeline for me. I get terribly disturbed if I cannot get online according to my sweet will. After all, it’s the key to my biggest obsession. And everything’s just a click away, unlike the real world- the world where we struggle for existence.
# Reading: My earliest obsession. I have less of clothes and more of books. I wish I had all the books of the world at hand and would spend all my life reading them. But I always try to separate the chaff from the grain and taste, chew, swallow and digest them according to their importance.
# Music : Listening to music is the in-thing now. Wherever you go, you will always find two ears with headphones plugged in them. Well I’m not on that boat, but I’m obsessed with music. Sometimes I feel if I had devoted some time and energy to it, I could have made it my profession. But no regrets. I can listen to it anyways. Music and me are inseparable.

#Simplicity : I’m a simple person and I think the world is simple too. Thing that appears complex is actually a conglomeration of many simple units. So I divide all complexities into fundamentally simple parts and lo and behold ! the complexities vanish. Maybe its not a perfect strategy but surely practical.
Readers, did you enjoy these obsessions of mine ?
I tag : Pooja ( I wanna tag you again!!), Abhishek SiM (You must do this ,my angel brother..), Harshita (My greatest admirer on blogger) and Rocky .

I cannot remember my mother,
only sometime in the midst of my play
a tune seems to hover over my playthings,
the tune of some song that she used to
hum while rocking my cradle.

I cannot remember my mother
but when in the early autumn morning
the smell of the shiuli flowers floats in the air,
the scent of the morning service in the
temple comes to me as the scent of my mother.

I cannot remember my mother
only when from bedroom window
I send my eyes into the blue of the distant sky,
I feel that the stillness of my mother's gaze on my face
has spread all over the sky.

~Rabindranath Tagore
Note : This was one of  the earliest poems I read,loved and cherished.


Concealed by dark clouds
You keep shining.
Bright streaks of light
Dazzle me.
Enchant me.
And keep me waiting..
Waiting for you.

Amidst Soul-lessness

There is smoke somewhere. 
I cannot seem to figure out where. 
The lights are here, the music is here.
Has it been home here ?
Perhaps. Maybe when it did not rain.
Or maybe when it rained and it did not matter.
Maybe when I walked alone, smiling to myself. 
Or maybe when I realized I was okay.
Had it been always like this ?

Not really. 
Things clicked, took effort and blood. 
Did I do it ? Or the beasts did ? Maybe we both together,
Played this game. 
Amidst soulful solitude, it was love. 
Maybe appreciation.
Another journey, another dry spell. 
Will it ever be home again ?
