I never believed in notions that follow the 'Friday 13th'. It is not halloween either. But it got me. I am spooked, shaken in many ways; devastated.

Again, like any other optimistic person, I thought it would never happen to me. Mine was a picture-perfect world. Yes, it was. But when I looked into it, cracks seemed to have appeared. It made me cry. I cried my eyes out (no exaggeration here). Somethings cant be changed although we might try desperately.

Also, because it is not perfect anymore, we cant let go of it all. I cant either. Like we accept it as fate, I did so too. We are all human after all and we make mistakes. We say nightmares are good and sometimes, so are mistakes. And there are lessons to be learnt out of mistakes, which we hope we see, accept and learn. I hope the same for me. God forbid it happens with anyone else.

It was valentines day. I dont think I want one again. It is just another day and just a date. Every month has a 14th. It comes and goes. Today too, passed. I wish to be normal again which I will be but it will take sometime.

P.S: For all those who celebrated today, hope you had a good time and continue to do so everyday.

A book review – Whispering Paths

The first time I interviewed someone for an assignment, the piece came back with a remark which read – ‘MOTS’ needs flesh, i.e. man on the street needs flesh! Whatever that meant, confusion was my first reaction to it. However, with writing and then rewriting the same assignment over, and over again, I realized that I had to add character or rather more ‘meat’ to the story. So what is my point here? I am trying to say that when someone asks me to read a new book or try a new author, I am generally wary of them. Why? Because I do not want to read through the book like a zombie because there is nothing (in terms of ‘meat) in its story or the characters!
But (There is always a catch, isn’t it?) Whispering Paths by Sneha Subramanian Kanta is different. Her debut publication has already put her in a league of writers who are out there to tell stories; stories that touch a chord deep within us and haunt us (in a good way) for time to come. Stories that a reader can relate to, feel the pain, …

What you get when you get a Dog...

Of moist wet noses and itchy ears, Pinpricks as bites and scratchy burs.
Ticks and twists, trips and tears, Licks and nips, and soulful stares.
Of woofs, barks and soft growls, Ruined furniture and empty food bowls.
Of smelly poop and slippery pee, Cuddly hugs, kisses and so much glee!
Of sleepless nights and dreamless mornings, When endless walks in the park become your calling.
Of wagging tails and adorable paw shakes, Shedding hair, rollovers, and shakes.
Of crashing dins and chasing leaves, Bring one home and you’ll never grieve.

From A Dream

He walked, bare feet, on a mass of crushed sea-shells Coarse sand clung onto him, he watched her Afar; sitting motionless on a wind-beaten rock As if waiting for knell
'Wosh-wosh' screamed the waves Gloriously furious, crashing on the moss-covered dock They came high, they came low Yet slow, the sea so magnificent they seemed insignificant He watched her, sitting motionless As if waiting for knell
Ominous clouds o'er head played hide-n-seek with the moon threatening to steal light till noon He prayed, she'd move and he'd take her away
somewhere warm, happy and safe
And then she turned to look at him,
Him eager, she like waif, smiled
his heart in blithe
Only to step deep into the waters
Now safe from the knell

(This is from a dream I had recently)
