As Life Moves On...

...there comes a time when you realise that even the last remnants of a fairytale have crumbled and fallen off...When your close friend goes through a divorce...when a classmate's kid succumbs to a terminal illness...When you don't know how to console...in fact, you don't even know whether to console...Maybe, they have moved on...After all, you get to know about it much later...After all, you don't communicate frequently...Your friendship is strong enough ...Or the acquaintance is weak enough...But in both cases, you assume the status quo won't change in 2-3 months...You live in a cocoon...You think you've kept them also inside it...that, somehow, the perils of life won't touch them...And then you realise you are wrong...And you stand perplexed...Wondering how to hold their hands...Realising they are already in a different world...You cannot touch their hearts...

And then in desperation you turn around and try to hold the hand that is still close to you...Le…

Life's Like That - 5

Every time hubby gets his friends home, they speak a different language...Lady gets left out of the conversation and feels left out of hubby's life...lady feels hubby is oblivious of this problem and decides to bring it to his notice....


Lady to hubby: "Why do you always have to resort to that language when you are with friends?"


Hubby (innocent and wide eyed as usual): "What language?"


Lady: " Your medical jargons...I am unable to follow the conversation when you talk about....Well, I can't even recollect all those terms you use"


Hubby: "So, what's wrong in that? Anything you don't understand, you just have to ask..."


Lady (frustrated with pouting lips) : "Yea, but the conversation is fully peppered with jargons. I have no clue of the context even...And anyway, I feel that is inconsiderate and shows a total lack of caring for my emotions...blah blah..."


Hubby (bulb shining over his forehead): "Oh okok...I got it.... you…

Being a Socialist

Well, I don't believe in equal distribution of wealth...but these days I often wish the world would have been easier to live in had God been a socialist and there was an equal distribution of intelligence among human beings...It is just impossible to drive sense into a thick skull :( ... The negotiations, hand holding and patience required to get results out of people who refuse to use their brains cause such a colossal waste of time, energy and resources...

At times, I keep reducing my speed of thoughts and ideas to match the others...so as to reach an agreeable solution...but sometimes it is just very very frustrating...You feel that your own brain will lose its sharpness due to lack of use...

Random Nonsense

I'm late to do this one...Deadline being eight hours...But every deadline has a loophole...and since time is relative...and there was no specific mention of "earth hours", I guess I'm still on time....Afterall, I'm from Venus :P

Well, have been tagged - by alex....this time with a deadline of 8 hours and significant consequences if the deadline is missed....So here goes....

Eight Random Facts - about myself....

1. I have an opinion on everything under the sun - from child rearing to global warming ....though these days I almost always keep them to myself...
2. It takes very little to make me happy - even less to make me sad too....(Hubby says life with me is a roller coaster ride)
3. I prefer truth to diplomacy - if you don't like something about me I'd rather you tell me about it...than smile at me and then bitch about me to the rest of the world....By the same token, a smile on my face is a smile from my heart and a frown is a frown....
4. I believe that like…
