You, My Life

Every day I wake up to your call,
Patiently trying to wake me up

Everyday I close my eyes
Seeing your good night messages

Everyday I start my day
Taking your wishes for a good day

Everyday you listen to my stories
Without a trace of irritation

Everyday you call me up
To be sure that I am fine

You have never asked for anything
You have never lost your temper
You have always accepted me as it is
You have always ignored my shortcomings

You have never stopped loving me
I wonder now, what if you were not there

What if I never got those messages?
What if you never called me up?

What if you never heard me out?
What if you never prayed for me?

Oh mine! I know its coz of you, I live,
That’s what makes you, My Life.

Bouquet of Happiness..!

Those flowers are fresh and green
With time, it will also fade away
But you will be remembered
As long as I take my breathe .
You may never know coz
Sometimes words are not enough.

What a beautiful way to end my day, I was with A and T, roaming around the city till sleep calls. It was supposed to end as just another day, but my best buddies made it special. I don’t need surprises to make my day, but then it made my day. I think it may not be an easy task to bid adieu to Mumbai, when the time finally comes. I have realized many times that the way to happiness is to spent time with your dear ones, not in getting more money and fame. When it comes to success & happiness I can’t count the number of degrees I have or the number of positions I got. It’s more about how many people I have met and how I made a difference.

Changing Seasons..!

World is so small! I am not making a statement here, I am just wondering, how we meet some people, we thought we wont meet for ages and then get surprised ending up asking “Hey its you”. Then to catch up with lot of things happening and updating about each others life. That’s a great feeling.

On the other day, my childhood mate V called me after a long time. I had almost forgotten that, he even exists in my friends list. It’s been years since we lost contact, great to get my friend back.

My best friend M is back in India, she always made sure, that distance and time won’t affect our relation. I thought I lost my good friend when she got married, I thought things wont be same after her marriage, but that was just a fear which never happened. She send me a gift, all the way from her place, and I can’t tell how much touched I was, not for the gift, but the reason behind sending it.

She is going to be a mother soon, though I didn’t really liked the idea of promoted as aunty so soon, but there is an excitement to see your childhood friend, to see in more matured and caring way, I know she will be a great mother.

Life is not going great, but can’t say its going bad. When I think I won’t be able to handle many things, life shows me that I can, though it may cost a lot. The irony is that I can see that I am becoming less emotional as each day passes. I know I can make my days great with cup of coffee in my hand and a book by my side, but that’s not life is about.. Even I started missing my devilish side.

I know life play the most unusual way, these days lot of good things are happening around that’s bringing a smile in my face.
Stupid me, I thought God is too busy listening to others.

As I Retrospect...

As another day ends with,
Memories of the bygone days of innocence,
Feeling the monsoon rain dripping down my face,
Missing those get-togethers of laughter and fun,
Looking at the gift send by my dear friend,
Listening to my favourite song,
Embracing the solitude of my new life.
I realize, finally the time has come-
to start my journey back to home.

Holding Me Close to Life..!

All I wanted to do that time was call him. When I heard his voice, I couldn’t tell anything, I was crying like a baby and I didn’t knew the reason. Like always my father was there listening, he didn’t ask me what happened? Nor he asked why are you crying? Nor he scolded me for acting so childish.

This is us and we were always like this. Whenever there was something I couldn’t handle, Papa was there holding me. I have seen people telling that you can never be friend with your father. But it was easy for me, no matter whatever it is, I used to tell him. I sometimes expected him to scold, to get angry, to be more rigid, to be stricter, but he was always calm. There were times I thought he won’t understand me, but he always understood, he used to understand things just by hearing my voice, my tone, it was more than enough. He broke family rules coz he thought its hurting his kids too much. He stands by us for what I and my brother believes and corrected us when we were wrong.

I still remember my first day of school; he sat beside me in the class, until he was sure that I will be fine alone. He had sleepless nights when I had exams, he also sit late till I finished my studies. He was the one who was more tensed than my mom when I went for my first dance competition and I saw tears in his eyes when I got the prize. He asked for my choice when I was joining college. He supported me and gone against family rules when I went for my higher studies. During placement time, when the first company came to campus, I was just giving a try, but when I called my father at night to tell the happy news, he immediately told “congrats, I knew you will crack” even before I opened my mouth. I didn’t know that I will, but he had full belief.

When I came to Mumbai, I didn’t want to stay, but my father knew that I will be fine, I will accept the new world like always. Whenever he was away, he made sure to call me everyday.
Now when I am not able to understand myself, a time I don’t expect anyone to understand me, he was there reassuring me. He was again giving me choices, and he was fine with what ever decision I take. I am still a kid for him; and I will always remain like that no matter how old I become.

My father never liked me crying, coz he wanted his girl to be strong to handle any emotions. I know I should be stronger, but I was glad that my papa was there, when I was totally clueless about taking emotional things. He was holding me one more step close to my life. I am always known to be a Papa’s gal and I am very proud about that.

The 4's..!

I was tagged by Mathew, and as nothing else came to my mind to write, I thought to take it up.
Gave chance to use my brains :)

Four places I have lived...

Trivandrum always gave me the impression of the bygone era of royalty. I am proud to say that some of my best memories of my life stay with this place; I have spent a major part of my student career here. I have never seen anywhere else, the way people encourage you, if you have an interest in dance and music. The city has changed its look with more crowd, traffic and new buildings. But it will always remain my home.

Bangalore aka Bengaluru
I call this my second home, have seen the city even before it become an IT hub. Now I can say that its one of the most happening place in India (though the Bangalore traffic is horrible these days). I love Bangalore for its high energy, vibrant and welcoming spirit. Now that all my cousins are settled there, I have a thousand reasons to go back to the city again.

I will remember Hyd for my MBA days, my last days of college life. Though its bit traditional, unlike other Metros, I still love the city, for a great reasons that it gave me some great friends I ever have. It is the city that tuned me as a person.

Finally, my current home, I can’t say that I love the city, but it’s special for me for many reasons,. Guess I am slowly starting to accept the city as my own. Now I love the Monsoon here, I thought I will miss the monsoon rain until I saw the rain here. Just love the spirit of the people here….. too good.

Four TV shows Iove(d) to watch

Deciding this was bit difficult as I watch TV only for movies and songs. So I had a tough time selecting this one.

Fear Factor
This one I started watching due to my cousin’s pressure, but later even I started to enjoy it, it was great, got a chance to see how adventurous people can be. I have seen the version done Akshay Kumar, but like this one better.

The Oprah Winfrey Show.
Again, this is something I started watching coz I saw my mom interestingly watching an English show for the 1st time. It was great to know about people from different societies and countries sharing their experiences.

American Idol.
I am talking about the 1st versions, which become popular in India before all those reality bizarre. It showed some of the talented singers in English. Now sad to say that, its a kind of business than a healthy competition.

Tom & Jerry
This show is the number one on the list, coz this is something I started watching from school days and I still enjoy watching. There are lots of other cartoons, but this is something that makes me laugh like hell.

4 places I have been on Vacation

I should say, I simply loved the place, for its greenery, for its beautiful coffee plantation, for those waterfalls. I was having this feeling that I am in Kerala, when I went there.

Another beautiful place in India, I think not much people have explored its beauty. Assam is more beautiful on rainy season, with all those tea plantation and forest, it gives an enchanting effect.

It’s a small city, but its very much developed in its own way. With a list of beautiful places side by side, trip to dehradun was memorable, loved the place for its beautiful mountains. Mussoorie is a place you should never miss in Dehradun.

I love munnar for beautiful mountains, lakes, tea plantations and all the greenary, but specialy for its calmness.

Four of my favorite Food

Yummyyyy….. I still remember my childhood days, and the hot ottada prepared by my granny. I still think no one can prepare it the way she did. Guess it has gone way for the junk foods, but that taste is always special.

Kappa & Mulaku Chammanthi
This also I have had only at my granny’s house, but it tastes better than any other food. The best combination I ever tried, though its so spicy that I end up drinking bottles of water.

I will specify that I love Kozhikodan Biriyani. Whenever I went to Calicut, this one have always attracted me with its aroma and taste. I think everyone who once had it, will totally agree with me.

Malabar Paratha
I don’t think I need to explain, how much keralites love this one. Though the best combination is with chicken curry and egg curry, I love this along with Cauliflower.

4 places I would rather be

Now, someone who loves rain should definitely visit this place na?
I have read one book on cherrapunji n I wanted to visit the place from that time onwards. Its very famous for its scenic beauty, though its still need to be explored more.

Its my personal favorite place, I have seen it a lot on pics and plan to go there once.

I have heard a lot about this one, known to the fashion destination. Someday I would love to see this place.

No special reason, i was always attarcted by that time, it seems like it holds lot of mystery.

I wish... If I could list more than 4.

4 things I Hope to do before I die

To take my parents to Netherlands (like I told before, it happens to be my favorite place)

To Build a riverside home of my dreams.(I have this plan in mind for the last sometime now)

To perform dance in Khajuraho (I left dancing long back, so..! )

To write a book. (someday I will publishJ)

Four novels you wish you were reading for the first time

Fountain Head
A great classic of modern days.

Its not about the Bike : My journey back to life
A great book by Lance Armstrong. Its amazing to know how a normal human being can survive the adverse conditions. One of the best real life story on cancer.

My Temporary Son
It’s the true story based on author’s real life, how a small kid is changing their life. There lot of emotional touching moments in this book which I simply love.

Tuesdays with Morris
This is a book that I always keep with me, like a mentor. It has covered all aspects of life so well that you will never be bored by reading it. I have already read it countless times.

Four movies I see over and over

Love this picture for those dramatic and action sequences. Became a fan of Russell Crow I never got bored watching it again and again.

The Matrix
Everything was nice about the movie, the concept, the screenplay, action, screen presence. I still remember for sometime, it was the favorite of all my friends.

A walk to remember
It’s a simple movie with a simple story, one of my all time favorites. Of course! Not to forget those nice songs.

God Father
This is a movie that I watched with my brother for the 1st time, and like he said, it’s a great movie with some great acting. Never really knew about Al Pacino until I watched this one.

I think i was fair in writing this tag...
And this time i would definitly like to pass it to:
