My holiday scribbles 1- Do we or don't we?

I hereby categorize all the thoughts,musings,questions and feelings of my vactioning mind into "My Holiday Scribbles" series...:)

A small wondering..



They say change is the only constant in life..but i ask.."is it so"?...
Of course,change is inevitable...But there are certain things in your life which remains a constant without having added to it the factor called "change"..
Sitting back at my home after a loong many months,i realize that nothing in me has changed much..neither my habits nor my likings....nor my dreams...
Situations and surroundings change...and people might adapt to it..but the basic you always remain the same...
A quick look through all my old diary entries made me realize this fact about me...another step towards an unseen goal of self realization....

what do you say??

A dream..a longing..a hope...



She didn't know why she was there...
She was a traveler strayed off from the normal path...
Meeting him there was something she never had imagined....
And when she met him,she wished she never had...
Because so different were they..

But little did she know that,they were meant to be..
That they would dream together...
That they would vow to love each other always..

And again...little did she know that they would part ways...
Never could she understand the games life played with her....

And now...
She wishes to wake up to a dream one day...
To a world of kisses, cakes, and candies....
A day when you are happy...
A day when you can say good bye to all your sorrows..
A day when the past imperfects becomes the the present perfects...
A day when all the broken hearts can be repaired...
A day when no heart bleeds of sorrow....

But she knew,it will always remain a dream...
Memories which can't be erased...kept coming back to her...
And she knew the broken ties can never be repaired..

But still she wishes that the dream becomes her's someday...

(PS:The above mentioned people are just fragments of my imagination,but any coincidence of resemblance to any one of you can be quite natural)..

MY artisitc experiments...AGAIN

Been loong since i posted my artistic xperiments...




I have never done painting in my life...This is my first try at it...This painting is the result of a sudden inspiration i got one day at midnight..done with whatever watercolours i could find at my place...

Since i am still in double minds whether to frame it or not,Now this result of the sudden "art stroke" i had i spasted upon my wall,along with another one sketch and a few gypsy cards i made for an event..




Thats my wall,adorned by my "art" now...

The other one in the wall



And before i conclude here is another sketch



This is the result of a nostalgia which i had on hearing a song...
And now i wonder..y such a sketch??

A Tale From The Far East....

This is a post,which i posted sometime back and then deleted due to
1.sentimental reasons..
2.un clarified facts..

Now since the above 2 matters have been resolved,with due respect to everybody involved,i am re-posting it again..

Disclaimer:The article below is a narrative as heard by the author,and not a sprout from the author's imagination.The amount of truth in the article is left upto the readers imagination.

India is a land of many a folklore and myths..I wish to share over here a story i heard recently,prevalent in this part of the country....

Somewhere in the far far east of India,lies a small and quiet village..friendly people, beautiful surroundings and a serene atmosphere filled with the chanting of prayers from the monasteries..That would be the first impression of any outsider who sees the place for the first time..But nobody would ever imagine the horrific experiences witnessed by the people over there, decades back...And that is where our story begins...

It was 1962..the year of the Indo-China war..Chinese troops advancing at Indians who practically were at their wits end..It was when a soldier(exact name not given by the person who narrated the story to me),volunteered.He sneaked into the army territory ,performed a brave act which saved his troops from a great disaster...

But he did not live to tell the tale..

The soldier is now gone...But the people of the village say,he still visits them..Many have cited experiences of having seen him..They worship him as a deity,somebody who protects them and has erected a temple in his name..He is fondly called by the villagers as a respected "BABA"(or divine soul)..The Savior who guards and protects them and saves their land from the enemy hands..and is with them always...

The battalion to which " baba" belonged has also a similar story to say..Every officer and jawaans in the unit seems to have had sightings of baba..and at times he utters one or two words to them..He is still treated as a living member of the battalion, receiving greeting cards,invitations..with his uniform preserved and with him attaining higher ranks with time...

That is the story of the soldier turned hero turned a divine being...
The rational mind might disagree to believe it...
But the belief and the faith of the people in this small village,continues to remain strong through generations....

Hic Hic and up....

1.Spilling over a well made drink over my new dress
2.Being kinda embarrassed for a fault which is not yours by your knowledge...

These are the things which were no where in my agenda today evening,while i was enjoying the party and making small talks...But as they say...nothing can be perfect..So in order to spoil my almost perfect evening came the bout of the unpredictable..:"HICCUPS"...

Tried everything which is ever known to me and the people around me to get rid of it...

I knowingly never asked for it....
And i dnt know what i unknowingly did,which is making it be with me,till the very moment even when i am penning this down...

Hope i woke up to a no hiccups day tomorrow...

HOPING THE BEST FOR ME...
YOURS TRULY:
THE JUMPING JELLY BEANS GIRL(thts my condition now,like a jellybean)



PS:wana write down many ..but..this to and fro motion of the upper part of my body is forcing me to stop and hit the bed..hope for a free-hiccups day tommorow...

till thn...

ciao..
chitz....

A small thought......

If by any chance you happen to visit the eastern side of India,do visit this place..The place is called Tawang in the border state of Arunachal Pradesh..Apart from the natural beauty,the one thing that will catch the visitor's eye is the war -memorial built in memory of the brave hearts who perished in the 1962 Indo -China war..You will find the names of over 2420 soldiers etched in granite plaques...The soldiers who tried to protect their country and gave up their lives .....

It is definitely a sentimental moment ,for anyone who loves his country...

In this period of escalating tensions between neighboring countries..and the war cries....

Take a moment to think about all those who died protecting their country....
Take a moment to pay Your respects to them...
Take a moment to think about those unsung heroes who now just remain as names on a memorial...
And take a moment to think...DO WE WANT WAR OR PEACE???

My bengali diaries...part 6

The horrible summer heat is fading away..and the feel of the winter chill is closing in..

"winters are starting"..the thought dawned upon me in the late hours of yesterday night,sitting in the 'gazebo',enjoying the last moments of a party, feeling the cold breeze blowing and seeing 2-3 kids sleeping in the cots,covered up in sweaters...

The cots were kept in the party place owing to the party theme " Punjabi nite "..whole hearted attempts were made to create the essence of Punjab..the best thing I found about the party, apart from the food,was the style of dressing ..non-sardars donning "pagdis" and" long beards and mustaches" were quite a sight and quite unrecognizable from their usual and actual self..

Later into the party,we saw many of them becoming non-bearded..as it was quite difficult for them to open their mouth for

1.speaking
2.eating
3.drinking..

The sight was hilarious when i saw for the first time whiskey being sipped through a straw..
well.. as they say..where there is a will,you will definitely find a way out!!

But some of them managed to have their attire stay untouched through out the whole party...thanks to the help of





with the help of which the face painting was done in place of artificial beards..

Innovative use of the shoe-polish,I must say!!



And that is a pic of happy santa and banta dancing away...

Apart from the party and fun,yesterday was a sentimental one for many as the party was a farewell party to one of the officers..But that is the way,life is over here..You tend to remain an vagabond..

That was yesterday's party...
Now the next big thing around the corner-"Diwali"

And on other notes...

Bliss has recovered from his injuries and is hale and hearty
Blessy is missing
(4 those who didnt understand who bliss and blessy are,please refer to the earlier parts of bengali diaries..)

And as i am penning this down,the huge road rollers are making horrendous noises,re-tarring an already tarred and well maintained road...what is the point,I ask...

And for me,just one more week left for my leave to begin..and i am counting days,happily!!!

A Big Bubble...

We all are proud owners of a big bubble....
A big bubble called life...
Each of us have it....
A bubble filled with all the emotions which the creator of the bubble gave us and also those which he stuffed up in the Pandora's box which was never to be opened...
We seem to be in complete possession of it...
but which,we are actually not....
The size of which the bubble can blow upto...not in our control...
The contents of the bubble...not in our control....
The period of time which the bubble stays intact....not in our control...
And when that bubble will burst...we dont know....




So..whats in our control??what can we do??
Dont think forward too much..and dont think out of the box too much..
Go along with the flow....
Follow the set path..
Enlarge the bubble of life,over which we have no control...
that's what every1 says...
N live the life which everyone does, just to be burst out sometime unkown....

I sometimes tend to think out of my body...
an another person perspective to my self...
which makes me feel weird...
and suddenly i close my eyes,stop my thoughts...to bring me back to this real ,moving world...

i guess thats when the master's say,the soul flows out of the flesh..

and i am sure,everybody once in their life will definetly think of it....

maybe the true realization ,the truth of the bubble will dawn when you achieve what is called moksha(which i have no idea what it is,and which anyways i am pretty sure i wont attain since my worldly links,are quite strong)...

till then i guess,i will be living as a mortal...enlarging my unseen bubble....which i enjoy doin..unless the once in a zillion blue moon times,when i tend to think outside my self.... :)

and what are your thought outside your bubble..i woulld like to know...please do share them...

till then...
ciao folks...
chitz...
