anodar one...



inspired from a photograh i saw..my version of mom n baby...
longing for that place which she has never seen
she sat , waiting for the traveller who never reached ....
she says "bravin the sun,winds n rains here i sit......
jus bcoz.......u pass this way ,but once..."

(dnt ask me wht was all tht abt..its smthing which suddenly came 2 my mind,as it always does)

mum indians lost against b'lore...how bad can things get???

dnt have ne methods of drowin my sorrows odar thn writin this blog,which also seems 2 b ineffective..as my mind dosent seem to obey my command of articulatin my sorrow in2 words..seems like my mind too is disgruntled wid today's day....

who wnt be,a bad end 2 a good day!!!

smtimes i wish i were god!!only smtimes...
"like a memory that evokes pain...
bt even that pain i cherish."..

its a scribble frm my diary entry written sm 8 yrs ago...

nostalgia had hit me today...n hit me very very hard....

goin down the memory line through those old diaries was gr8....

a wide eyed girl wid many dreams.
many out of the world dreams.....

a very confused teenager.
confused as to which path 2 choose in life...

smbody who was disgruntled smtimes and thankul manytimes to god almighty

thts wht i saw in my diaries.....

2day many of those dreams have bcome realities....
i guess thts wht happens whn u believe in the power of dreams...
u turn ur dreams in2 realities....
u dream people in2 life....

as they say...
"never let go of ur dreams...because if dreams die,life becomes a broken winged bird that cannot fly"....

lookin bac at those days made me realize how much i have evolved as a person...

yup there were instances whn i felt tht i "shudnt hve"...

bt as they say...
"yesterday is a history and tomorrow is a mystery"....

howmuchever u want you wnt b able to rewrite tht history or solve the mystery(unless and until u have a time machine:the possibilites of which are null n void)

guess its tht mystery,which makes life move on n makes it so special!!!!

n as for me..i 'm a happy individual today..happy that i chose the right path in life..n happy that what i dreamt years bac has become my life now....:)

n all i have 2 say is "Thank u god..theres no questionin ur deeds ever"!!!

more drawings..











puppy's sketch...


n my sisters' phn..
its been a long day..3 blogs a day..well..it hasnt tired me out..mayb i can write more..as i 'm confined to only dis means of expression of thought since my throat has gone 4 a toss...bt my body urges me to call it quits today..guess my posts for today should end here...so loong folks!!!

hail mumbai indians n long live tendulkar...after a near miss @ the last game,MIs did it again...n yup i m happy...coz tendulkar's team won again...




luv u sachin!!!u rock....

this win of the mumbai indians was kinda solace for me,who had a bad day..thankx to my laryngitis, simplified as sore throat..u tend to overlook ur physical pain in times of happiness..thts wht happend to me today..the win of mumbai indians made me 4get abt my unconditionally bad throat...bt reality struck me again as the elation died down...i can barely talk now..which many ppl around me think as a blessing in disguise as they wont have any1 to eat their heads out..:).
bt seriously..the condition is bad..if i talk smthin..the voice which comes out of my mouth is barely recognisable even by me...so better i keep quiet for smtime..bt the situation has improved since today morning whn i woke up n found out tht barely a squeak can escape frm my mouth..n tht too after lots of hardwork...
this kinda 'dumb' state of mine was fully bought upon me by none other thn 2 of my weaknesses...


+



YUP...I had a chocolate sundae n went out in the rain...well both was unplanned...chocolate sundae was a treat..bt the rains were quite unexpected...bt u shud say goin out in the rain,especially the summer rains r quite nchantin n refershin...this goin out in the rains was a plan of my neice,who tried to live up sm nostalgia..we bcame nostalgic alrite...bt as a bonus i got a 'sore throat ' also...n she is still fit n fine as i battle against this terrible condition of havin 2 keep quiet whn u want to desperately talk...i guess this lack of verbal communication is one of the reasons i m bloggin like crazy today.....hope my voice comes bac soon...:)

excatly 2 more weeks left of my vacation..n in this late phase of my holidays,the bloggin spree is got in2 me again..mayb the dawn of the fact tht i wnt b able to blog like dis
(leave alone tht..i even dnt kno whn i will c a full fledged internet connection)after 2 weeks till time infinity which i cnt predict is forcing me to sit in front of the comp n spurt out everythin on my blog,which was i guess kinda inactive for smtime..compared to the rate and the passion at which i used to blog whn i started bloggin..in the last month of the previous year.my jump in2 the blogging scenario( last september,whn i signed up 4 blogger)..was induced by the words of a frnd as a method of making money online...bt september saw no blogs frm me ,seriously didnt even feel like fillin up my profile leave alone makin money frm it....the blog was forgotten until december ,whn i got access to the net again..was confused as wht to write in my first post..n started wid an intro..thn there was no lookin bac .my blog bcame smthin like my diary which i used to miss very dearly..whn i felt sad i used to blog,whn i was happy i used to blog..my blog thus bcame a medium of lettin out my emotions..happiness..sadness..frustrations n weird thought processes which occur to me quite frequently...enter vacations n i guess i got the writers block..bt now as my holidays r comin to an end,i m drawn more n more in2 this world of thoughts,expressions n views....dis world of words where i can laugh aloud n cry aloud..n spurt out each n everythin which comes up in my mind,whithout thinking twice...i love my blog..its really my space..n yea i love u visiors too,especially the ones who keep on comin bac again n again.thanx to feedjit..jus tht it wud have been nice if i knew who was visiting..:D..it feels good 2 kno tht my blog is being read ..makes me feel like jottin down more(crap or non crap..i guess there 'll b takers for everthing..thnk god we all dnt think alike..:) )..n i m gona miss all this after 2 weeks..very very badly..hope my net connection bcomes active soon out there...hope my blog dosent bite the dust...all these i hope ,pray n wish 4..god knows whts in store for me @ the new place....
