Celebrating Friendship!!!

This picture was taken in off track Thar desert region of India during the sunset. I am confused about the emotion this picture brings out of me, two thoughts strike me one after the another. First, this picture depicts the energy and zest contained in youth, that feeling of reaching to the sun and whole world clenched in your fist. Second thought is more personal, that how friends become family without even realizing the depth of bonding shared by them. And somehow the second thought overrides the first, may be because of the situation in which this photograph was clicked. It is usual to fight with friends, bitch about them sometime when it gets really intolerable but at the end they are the ones who understand you, like in and out when even your family may fail. Like in this picture we all may have different directions of thinking but it is not bound of any approval. I am lucky to have a pack of such friends in my life.

Song of a Woman…

Who says women can be celebrated only on March 8th, for all the lovely women in my life:

She was a nymph last week,

Turns a woman today

She sashays in the crowd.

Swishing her skirt away

She can dance on Debussy.

While she sings ‘Marrakesh Express’

She believes in joys of life,

An enchanting charisma she possess

She conveys with her eyes,

That shines with a dab of kohl

She tosses her hair around,

Waking up dead souls

Her scent enthrals the breeze,

As she wanders all around

It’s the male attention she seize,

As she walks in the yellow gown

She looks at the sky and it rains,

Her lips smile that glows her face

She looks at the mirror and,

Ignores how resplendent she looks

She lives with an exquisite flamboyancy,

Her memories of childhood fade away

Her soul is in sweet ecstasy,

As she turns a woman today!

Forgotten Gratitudes…

Life is running out too fast. We sometime take our people for granted and forget to convey them their importance in our lives. May be to an extent that their absence might affect our presence. Some oblivious pointers of life that are needed to be recalled:

  • Show your Mom how much you love and care for her. That her food is the best meal you had in a day. That you are proud of her for all the pain she takes to keep the family integrated.
  • Tell your Dad that you are thankful to him to provide you all the things you demanded in life. That you look up to him for all the hardwork he has done so that you would never face financial crunch.
  • Say your brother or sister that no matter what you will always stand by them. That you fight with them because you adore them. That they are your saviour at times.
  • Sit by your dog, cuddle him and run your fingers through his coat. Thank him for being a mute listener for all your jibber-jabber. And that he is the best dog you ever had. 
  • Meet friends. Not like body meeting body but soul meeting soul. Salute them for being asses in your life. Thank them for all the laughter they have provided when you needed it most. Be grateful to them for taking you out from abyss like infinite times.
  • Finally thank God for being so kind on you, to grant you a life which is beautiful. And you wouldn’t have wished for anything better.

Enrich your life with these Oscar winners. As you don’t want to live with a qualm of not being grateful to people who are the reason for your existence.
