Maithili

Its been a while here...
No, it wasnt because of those scary blank moods...
Am busy...mortherhood,work, hobbies........yada yada yada...:)
what have I been doing ...well I enrolled myself to tanjore painting classes ...its been a dream come true...

Presenting "Maithili" whoz joy had no bounds when she recieved her beloveds ring while being captive in the hands of Raavana...

Its said Tanjore Paintings are usually the greatest narrators of the legends and the Gods of our ancient and glorious culture...whom do I potray being in the limits of tanjore painting rules was a big question...
Mam came up with Ganesha ,Lakshmi, Dashavathara and many more excellent pieces for me to choose.
But the rebel in me wanted to do a little different from the norm as always!....Thats when I saw the picture of Sita and I knew what I am gonna work on instantly.

Why Sita,
I picture her as a woman of substance...the woman, who was tough like a diamond and soft as lotus....
An adorable daughter who was beauty personified in and out.A loving wife who stood by her husband all times even when she was asked to proove her worth.The First single mother history ever had known who brought up her children all by herself wihtout any riches.A self esteemed lady who rejected her husband, when she was asked to reproove her worth to live with him after all her sacrifices.
She has been the most moving , most delicate character.. ...

It took nearly 6 months to complete the work...A big hug and love to amma and achan for taking care of Manu when I got restless to complete the work.
Even after not being so regular to the class I still managed to complete it!!!! thanks to Premalatha mam for her constant guidence and to Raji Aunty with her lovely smile for motivating and tolerating the ever nagging me!
.... plus a bunch of new friends ...Vishnu, Anitha, and ofcourse Mercy...you girls rock!

and to drop the curtain...Thanks hubby dear, for being there with a double thumbsup always...
and thanks for sponsoring the next project -the Radha Krishna ...and yeaaa I havent forgoten the driving class :) :)

Come again another day

It rained ...
Tiny dainty drops touched the earth and disappeared...
I ran down the stairs with an equally crazy friend at work to touch those first drops...laughter and giggles...
eyes protruded from around...what are you women up to!!!
We realised we had the choice of running up the terrace instead of coming down...
Choices are the most difficult decisions to ever make...

It continued to drizzle and we stood smiling....
Emotions extruded from the frozen frames of life here and there...rainz always like that ...takes me to some deep emotional territory...

Thank you for being so Kind ....

We walked back to the cubical...

How I was glad that the wet drops on my face could
be called raindrops...

Mind - whispers, wait for now !

Shilly Shally Damselfly

The sunlight after the chill night felt like heaven, the power of that view was undeniable, I could see Central park spread out below me, dotted with people and trees, with their leaves turning orange and gold ....The stretch of high rises in the distance. Then the river, Then New Jersey...

He lives in New Jersey, I heard myself saying...........

Suddenly it felt like there was just me and the sadness, but even that did not feel heavy just then, it just felt there, like my nose, like the scar over my arm I got from picking at a chickenpox scab when I was seven.....Just another part of me.....

We adored each other once. I remembered it. I had a handful of mental pictures, postcards that had gotten soft around the edges from being handled so often...

The phone in the room rang...
“Your cab to airport will arrive in 15 min. Have a great morning” a women from the front desk announced.
“Sure..thanks much..good day “ I placed the receiver back and moved back to the window..



Mind wandered again....
We stared at each other .......I waited. I waited for an apology, an explanation, something that could make sense of whatever happened....Nothing came....After a moment of awkward silence he walked out of the room, and I was left alone, hoping this was a phase, a fling, a bad dream even.
No such luck.
The distance had arrived for good!

May be I should start thinking that these things happen to me because I am strong enough to take them....
I pulled the door and moved out to the reception

When was the last time I saw him, I tried to remember ....it was fall again..We had gone for a walk around the block, Half way back it had started to snow..Unexpectedly...
his first snow...
and we both stood, holding hands with our eyes shut and our mouths wide open, feeling the flakes like tiny wet kisses on our cheeks, long after everyone went inside.

I closed my eyes against the memory..

The cab barrelled down the New Jersey Turnpike at eighty miles an hour, right past the exit that would take me to his door...I tapped two of my fingers against the window as we sped past.
Hello and Good Bye!

Little Nothings....


I wish I was a little girl-
The kind whose parents still read stories to her at bed time...
and held hands when she crossed the streets...

Our pride..."Abhimaan"


He gives my days a rhythm and a purpose...
His smiles makes me feel every morning is a celebration....

What more should I say....
He rescued me ;Keeps me from being lonely....

Honest Tag !

Jina tagged me with this Honest scrap tag long ago …..and girlie, it took a really long time to unwrap the wedding gift you gave us :) :P:P ...Sorry

Am supposed to do this as per tag rule!!! ;)
About Jina's blog ..Been a regular for a while now at her blog and I awe at the way she puts across her wide experiences in her blog...You go Girl !! :)

On to the Tag!



“This award is bestowed upon a fellow blogger whose blog’s content or design is, in the giver’s opinion, brilliant.”

“When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to the said person so everyone knows she/he is real. Choose a minimum of seven (7) blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have seven friends. Show the seven random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with Honest Weblog. Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. List at least ten (10) honest things about yourself. Then pass it on!”

I thought I could easily write 10 honest things on a lunch break and finish it off...but trust me I had to literally drain my brain to reach till 10 :)
here it goes the TAG!!!

  1. I stay away from Hospitals and Doctors.....the thought of getting a shot terrifies me.....most often people who accompany me to the doctor get embarrassed of having done it...and probably swear not to do it again!!!
  2. I thought I was good at chess, I had beaten many at school and college. Ever since I started playing chess @gameknot.com I’ve realised I’m just crap!!!
  3. Since I just cannot sing...never have got a tune right for the life of me...I try to compensate by listening to music...Not so long back , not a a single day would pass without listening to music , but last one year umpteen no of days have gone without hearing any melody...wonder whats stuck me!! Marriage's changed me from Geeta to Seeta I guess ;P!!!
  4. Sports gets me bored quickly...I could get bored to death if someone spoke to me about sports except for my hubby dear and his cricket and tennis interests......
  5. I really am not a morning person (people, please stop scheduling those yoga and dance classes for 7 am). It takes at least an half-n-hour session of wake up calls, pampering / kicks etc for my brain to start semi-functioning.
  6. I generally read several books at once. I keep one in the office as well so that I can take mini breaks with a one or two page read as and when time permits....No, my boss has no clue about it ;)
  7. I am an extremely emotional person.... to the brink of neurosis. I find nothing so allaying as a good cry (though generally in private) which never happens these days !!! (people claim they baby sit me these days so they get to know everything!!
  8. I try to keep everything organized,In place and try to plan things ahead...thanks to my husband I am never called a perfectionist...makes sense huh!!!
  9. I don't do this anymore, but it wasn't that long ago that I did. Whenever Iam reading a book I used to pretend that I had this long straight hair and I would role and role strands of hair into a thick curl using my finger...... It passed with the time is what I say ...and I can hear my husband shouting "you still do that"!!!
  10. I dream to live by a lake or river...in fact right on the banks of Bharathapuzha...with my own little boat .....A lake side home...acres of land ..blah blah blah....wouldn't be possible till I fall on some hidden treasure or hit a jackpot ....or husband dear gets richy rich overnight :)

    Rule is to pass on the tag!! ..... am pretty sure most of them would have already done it...
    so who ever is interested please pick it up and zoom on !! :)

It wont be long....


It wont be long now, My heart pounds...50 more days to go...
I stare at the empty room that would soon belong to you too...


every time I feel your tiny moves my little angel ….
I want everything to be ready, do all that I can to fulfill all your needs...
your tiny little clothes..your crib....get all the comforts to keep you in bliss.


It wont be long now...when I would hold you in my arms
give you my little one, huge hugs and lots of kisses...
Cuddle you and tickle your feet....


It wont be long, My dream will soon come true...
I ll have you by my side my precious, to fill my heart to brim...
