There are Days...

...when you wish for

1. a rainbow in the sky
2. a smile from a random stranger
3. a cup of steaming coffee made especially for you by a loved one and not by a machine (you see, the latter just doesn't have the aroma of love)
4. an auto driver who shall ferry you without demanding excess fare/cribbing about your destination
5. a glimpse of what future has in hold for you
6. A dance in the rains with your soulmate
7. A trip to those special moments in the past (to enjoy it, once more...)
8. and most of all, wings - to fly back home (no, air deccan is still expensive:P)

I guess, it's the effect of the season, which makes all of us wish for a little bit of magic in our lives...

In this season of joy and celebration, I wish all of you 'May Your Dreams Come True'

Voices of Dissent...

...are as unwelcome in the blog world as in the real world. Free speech, to that extent, is a myth...You don't agree ? Well, try browsing through the comments section in any blog...You will mostly find readers (again most blogs have a very captive audience...at least as far as posting comments go) either lauding the writing style or sympathising with the writer. There is never a dissenting voice. And, the odd dissenting voice is ferociously silenced by the blogger as well as the supporters with statements ranging from "You don't understand what is being talked about" to "This is for my friends, (read, supporters) if you don't agree with my views stay away" ...

Agreed, if your opinion is different from what is expressed in the blog, they usually don't resort to physical violence like some totally intolerant people in the real world do...but, that's all...the tolerance levels do not even extend to the level of 'agreeing to disagree'... I wo…

When Idols Resurrect...

...it is such a heady feeling !!! Afterall, you choose an idol with tremendous care..atleast I do...I have very few idols in my life...But the chosen ones..I look upto them...try to emulate them...pride myself when I am able to do it...And then, one fine morning if the idol falls, or so much as even slips, it hurts...you try to justify the slip as another logical step...but all your logic fails...and you wonder whether you were wrong in your choice...you are uncertain and confused...

Then along comes days like today, when you realise that you weren't wrong...your idol has not fallen...in fact my idol in my workplace just proved what an amazing individual he is...and I was reassured that the reasons why I chose him as my idol and role model still shine bright ....

Yes, I am floating on the highest clouds today...

Travelogue

...Ofthe journeyfrom dreams toreality...Theway the scenerychanges...howattimesthescenerybecomes morepowerful thattheroadandyou decidetofollowit....redrawing the map...

Ofstrangers ontheroadside ...somewhojustwaveandgoon...otherswhojoinyour journey...stillothers whomyou join...

And somewherealongthewayyou realisethat the dreams that guided you are no longer the motivation...instead its the new sights and sounds you experience...and the spontaneous decisions that you take...to take a break...to explore a new road where none exists... sometimesfor the sheer challenge of seeing if you have it in you...to toss aside an almost perfect omelette and start again...and enjoy the pleasure of searching for a new egg....

That's life !!!

P.S: I firmly believe omelettes are God's gift to mankind :P
