Happy Children's Day!!

Running through the walkway, pushing aside all people on the way, banging on to one of my teachers and finally leaping forward and ending up my best buddy’s arms… Hugging each other and jumping around, creating our own form of dance and I thought.. Damn I could have used this one for the choreography competition. YES!! we have topped it up with another first position for the Indian music competition. That took us a step further to end up in the current leading position for the rolling house trophy this year. Two more results to go before we can sit back and relax.

Lunch time and we are anxious minds would not let us swallow more than what is required to fill our tummies. We decided to check out the stalls and play a game of ring-toss to calm ourselves. Jassim from the house that finished second walks in and says, Okay girls, now play a nice game and..let’s say the way we fair in this game would reflect our respective house’s final positions. We’ll call it a match

At a time when you have exhausted yourselves of all the competitions that you could possibly take part in, I found it extremely annoying that he could come up with another one of all the days on Children’s day. I decided to back out, but the forever high spirited lady that Shalu was, she convinced me that we could do it at least for our house’s sake :P
Two rounds down and we were almost losing it. Afraid that this might be the fate of our house as mentioned by his highness, we started taking the game too seriously. We panicked over every lost throw, I was back to chewing the very little millimeters of nails that were left after the month long competitions.

Can I play for the two of you?? Asked Sree.

No way, that way their house would win over ours, snapped back Jassim.

Well that okay, look at them, they look so miserable. They’re my friends and I wouldn’t mind if we lose out on the house and as he stretched out his hands to take the rings, he said something which sounded muffled and extremely distant…..

Have you submitted your timecards yet???

Hello, do you hear that?? Have you submitted your timecards yet??

And….I see myself staring down at a 17 inch monitor, fingers over the keyboards, with my manager staring down at me from the other end. I took me a minute and a half to gather myself and cook up a story of deep concentration and complex logic and how I was trying hard to find out the best way to implement it.

It happens Sigma, you don’t have to make that up, any working day post a long weekend ought to be a lazy day at work.. I understand.

Yeah you do understand that… but will you be able to understand if I told you I was thinking about the innocent selfless friendships, the healthy competitions and the ever wonderful companionship that once existed in our lives?? The selfless mentors our genuinely concerned teachers who helped us to be the person that we are today??

I miss them all on this Children’s day as I feel thankful to my parents for granting me the opportunity to experience with all these wonderful people in my life!

Ever wondered the importance of sighs in your life?? Those simplest forms of expressions, too trivial but the most significant ones... like a sigh of a mother at the first sight of her little one... the sigh of relief at the sight of a person you were frantically searching for?? The sigh of that secret admirer each time his lady passes by...A sigh of a little gal as she hugs someone tight... that long and heavy sigh of loss at the fond remembrance of good days gone by... that soft, special sigh of a woman at the thought of her beloved...  that warm selfless sigh of a dog when you hug him tight ... the sigh of the farmer as the first droplets of rain splashes over his sun-kissed cheeks.... that silent soft sighs that hides in the sobs of a woman abandoned by her man...

Sigh!!! All these days I've noticed with awe how it would slowly mark its humble presence in the most emotional of situations.... n then slowly retreat with the same aura of anonymity it came in with. Now I guess the sigh has finally started marking its importance more distinctly as the other day... amongst all the stupid things I think/say.. when I mentioned the importance of Sigh over a Sigh!!! I was pleased to hear a few voices reflect my thoughts over the significance of a sigh.....

N so I Sigh!!! at the thought of all those wonderful sighs I've felt... the sighs I've let out... the least noticed, but the most delicate and beautiful form of expressions... I have ever known....

Living in a Bubble

I've always wondered, how it feels like to live in a bubble.  Born to loving people who blew them to life, in a small ball of love....  Surrounded by an aura of soft light, protected from the harsh rays of the summer sun .....  With the deafening noises of the outside world  a faint, distant melody to their little ears....
Rising and dipping ... moving to the tunes of the whistling wind, or float in the warm breath of cute lil kids....  feel good to be the very reason for their smiles.. Or even better feel good to know that they are the very reason that you're born and alive....
 To be within a shell, away from the maddening world. To be born, lived and die without losing the purity and innocence you were born with, cuz you break and end at the touch of the harsh and the mean...

I still wonder how it feels to live in a bubble... but somehow.... I feel good... about not having to have lived in a bubble.....

Some day...

As I walk along the shores of the surprisingly silent sea…
my skin reflecting the golden glow back to the slowly sinking sun
a twinkle in my eyes ... tickle at my feet…
I realize how far we've come oh dear sea
Shore to shore ... Zone to zone we traveled
In our own respective realms

Together lets celebrate this moment of togetherness
Cuz tomorrow I start again.. on a different journey.. on a different  route..
before I join you.. and be within you..
Somewhere..... Some day..... on a yet another peaceful day
