Commencing my search for the Infinite with words

आज सोचा …..के कब लिखेंगे हम दिल की….

लिखनी हैं बातें, पर दिल में तो शोर है…

जाना है कहाँ क्या पता, चल तो पड़े हैं अब हम…

इतनी खबर है लेकिन,

रास्ता कोई भी हो चाहे, अब आना तेरी ही ओर है।।।।

Happy Valentines Day

પ્રેમ…
માપીને થાય શકે એવી વસ્તુજ નથી…
ખૂબ કરો, સૌ ને કરો…
છતાઍ, બધાને વેંચી એજ શકાય છે જે આપડી પાસે હોય….
તો દોસ્ત, ભલે સૌ ને કરો, પણ પહેલા સ્વ ને કરો!

તો valentines day ના પ્રેમ નું વિતરણ પોતાને અરીસા મા જોઇને, આઇ લવ યુ કહેવા થી કરૉ…

#loveyourself #iloveme
હેપ્પી valentines ડે!

Flower Power

A flower, no matter where it falls, still stays a flower !
Turn it upside down or throw it out on the road,
It will only be what it already is – colorful and beautiful !

realisation of the day

Living in the same house, street for 5 years now, but noticed these #gorgeous #lush #green #trees today, just 3 houses down the lane ! It’s so surprising how we can easily miss to see what we love and enjoy so much, and travel far and wide to find, when it’s so near to us.
Just like we go looking for that #elusive #happiness and peace in places outside, when it can actually be found within ourselves!

🤔Thoughts about the living roots bridge in Cherrapunji

A #livingrootbridge , another #astounding phenomenon of #nature in #cherrapunji , #Meghalaya.
Where the #roots of #trees intertwine on their own and with a bit of #human help, grow into a proper, full fledged #bridge …
Isn’t #life like that? Isn’t it all about #intertwining and #entangling your life with the #world in a way that we grow into some kind of help to other people? Isn’t it all about building bridges? Isn’t it all about reaching out to the other side? That’s what I think at least. Do let me know your thoughts on this.

Thankyou 2018, What Else Is Possible 2019?

Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou to 2018. Its been a good year no matter what I’ve gone through, gained or lost. I’m still standing, standing comfortably, and with all my family and friends intact. And considerable stability. That’s a lot to have and I’m super thankful for that.

I’m also ready to welcome 2019 tonight, and already thankful for it too! Because it’s going to be more relaxing and more fulfilling. Yes, it will be. I believe so and whatever else it puts in the bag, I accept it all with indisputable gratitude.

What Else is Possible?

How Does It Get Any Better Than This?

What Does It Take for It To Be Even Greater Than I Can Imagine?

Garden Of Caves

Garden of Caves , this is one of those places where everyone of us city people would love to come. Such natural places, like I’ve said before, seem to heal me. The serenity and simplicity of this place is soothing, yet the purity, strength and power of it belittles me . It liberates me of the ME …

Such places are not just where I rejuvenate, and If you know what I mean, I’d say, this is a place I could die in!

There’s always something to be Thankful for!

It’s been a good Friday today, a good holiday. A day well spent. With ample rest, and in company of family and friends.

But late this evening , in the bath, I remember feeling a bit irritated about some inconvenience. What it was, I really cant remember. But what I do remember, is that the very next thought (and my mind, like most others, races at unimaginable speed) after being irritated was that , Oh! I need to be thankful for this, and I also remember I had some solid reasoning for that. I remember, also, that AI need to put it on my blog!

Fast forward to now, late after midnight and when everyone else is peacefully deep in slumber , I try to gather what it was that I decided I had to write about? 🤔 What was it during the day that bothered me and also made me realise I need to be thankful that it happened? 🤔🙄

🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️ My mind draws a blank. 🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️

It’s surprising how I have no faint memory of what irked me a few hours ago!

And I think to myself, anyway, wasn’t the point to relate this incident (whatever it was) and pen it down just to remember to be Thankful? So that’s what I am, Thankful. And that’s what needs to be written! And that’s what I remember.

I need to be Thankful.

Thankful that I not only had such a good day but also that I forgot whatever was unpleasant earlier.

There’s always something to be Thankful for!

તારી સાથે ની દોસ્તી

છે સાવ મારાથી, આમ તો અલગ તું,

છતાંય આટલી સરખી, ક્યારેક કેમ લાગે છે….

આમ તો છે, અધીરી તું ઘણી, માને છે એ તું પણ,

વડી ક્યારેય એકદમ, મને તું tame લાગે છે….

દોસ્તી ને માનું હું , તસવીર જો કોઈ તો,

એની માટેજ ઘડાએલ જાણે, તું frame લાગે છે….

વીતી જાય છે સમય, ક્યાં તારા સાથ માં,

એ ખબર જ નથી પડતી મને સાચ્ચે,

ભાર વિના ની દોસ્તી નો, મિઠ્ઠો આ પ્રેમ લાગે છે….

બતાવે છે ફિલ્મો માં, જીવન ભર ની દોસ્તી,

મુશ્કેલ છે મળવી, હકીકત માં, માનું છું એ,

પણ તારી સાથેની દોસ્તી, મને same to same લાગે છે….

Renewed Hope

So this morning , I open the door and I’m taken aback. In good way, actually. It’s cool, just a bit chilly, infact, WOW! God actually switched the winter back on! Just like that. And he also bundled in a few clouds , and, to top it all, he sprinkled a faint little Rainbow on the morning sky too (even if i saw it only later on social media posts)!!! So, yeah, wow! I decide its too beautiful and pleasant to go back to bed, and settle on the porch with some hot piping tea!

And then it dawned open me, if seasons can change like this overnight, who do I think I am to underestimate life after all? Stress comes and goes, because stress is now probably a synonym of modern life , but so what? I could feel it just evaporate from me into the universe…. just like that!

It struck upon me, yet again, that there is a positive for every negative, a cool relief after every scorching summer, and while it maynot snow like I fantasize it , the cool breeze is probably more soothing than the snowfall !

So Why do we get back feeling stressed every now and then? That’s probably an unseperable part of this big mad parcel of our fast, modern, do it all rollercoaster we call life, maybe even a big one, but its just a part nonetheless. The stress isn’t life itself. The completing part is probably Hope.

So, here I am, sipping my uplifting masala chai on the porch, silently making this promise to have a firm hold of positivity in daily life situations ,that I’m gonna be happy and hopeful…. and I realise, once again, “picture, ab bhi baaki hai mere dost!”

Madhav Mumma Mornings

School mornings are usually , let’s put it as “NOT SO NICE” for Madhav and Mumma! For Madhav, it’s a dragged from bed- getting a sleepy bath- back in bed routine. Mumma, on the other hand , after 3 or 4 sweet good morning calls 😙, like most other moms, transforms into, shall I say, ahem 🤭, A DRAGON 🐲? Madhav certainly (but with a fair share of pouts 🙇‍♂️, wails😭, tears😢and complaints 😤) responds to the Dragons call! All in all, it’s an unpleasant run upto the school bus each morning 😑…

This morning though, 4 customary sweet mom calls later, out came the Dragon! Followed by the irritated pout by Madhav…

As he stood , closed eyes, lips curled in an annoyance-

Madhav – ” Mumma, I’m cold!”

Dragon Mumma – “No, you’re not cold, you’re Madhav!” 🤐😏😆

The annoyed Madhav opened his mouth to retort a cheeky reply, but his his lips just spread out in a silly smile, acknowledging the silly PJ! Pout gone, Dragon gone!

The morning just became sweet!

Brought me back a pointer from my childhood- Laughter is probably STILL the best medicine!
