MY LIFE AND TIMES will be a year old on 26th of this month. Blogging has been my greatest pleasure since then. I would like to thank my countless (?) readers who have added to my experience on bloggerville. A huge thank you to all of you !

Why I blog ?
#It’s a good pastime (lol...I guess it’s a lot more)
#I get to read some real good posts (and take cues)
#I get to read some crap posts too( no offence meant-actually they enhance my positive self esteem :D)
#My friends and relatives see me in a new light here ( After all, now they know that I’v some good qualities too :D )
#I made some good blogger friends with whom I can have fun.

I’m sure many of my loyal readers are still reading. For them, there will be a treat on the D-day. (Don’t raise your expectations sky high-its just a post - no awards/interviews/guest posts). But I’ll give my best to fill your time with a good read.

I was turning the pages of my personal diary today and I found this. This is for you,
my dearest blog (my readers are an inseparable part of my blog).


My arms ache for love
The sound of your footsteps mesmerize me
Your soft breathing on my skin
Nearly kills me with affection

The twists and turns life takes
Sends me into a pallor
I just cant let you get
Away from me-never to meet

I can bear anything but separation
Your support is my sole comfort
Your touch transfixes me
Without you, I’m just a faded rose.

P.S:i hope my readers dont kill me for this insane rambling.

I think its quite insane. I dunno what message everyone else got but from what i decipher it seems its about clinging on to someone, fearing separation, feeling incomplete without the that manner this poem is insane and very true

PS : By insane i mean insanely awesome. ;-)

Insane rambling? I guess I should chullu bhar paani mein door maro-fy! Whatever that was! :P

Happy Birthday to MY LIFE AND TIMES! May you keep going on and on and on and I realize that your mother is a very modest girl and that she is a beautiful human being, and dear bloggie ask her to be less modest! We know how special she is and I know she realizes that too! :)

Great job sister! I pray to God that he blesses you and this beautiful baby of yours. May you both keep blossoming together! :)

God bless. Take care. *hugs* :)

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 ?
