Scared !


It's scary grandma, the shadow, it pesters me while I walk towards school & when I come home after playing in the evening :( I get nightmares too thinking about how spooky it gets & it might eat me up some day....

Gradma,  said with a sigh ! "It's just a scarecrow my little angel"...

Filling the Void...

I wished I had a friend, back when I was a toddler & had very few friends, don't know whether it was because of the way I think, or the way I perceived others did not fit the bill :D Oh ! Jesus... If only I had a companion who could listen to me & accepted me the way I was.
I entered 6th grade & brightened up, looking forward to the English Class, the lady teacher loved me as the best kid (I can't figure out still, but I loved the attention). I scribbled during the boring lectures & then made my way towards writing little sections in the school magazine. Climbed up the ladder, with more articles & short stories written during college & getting them published across the web...
Noticing my love for writing I hosted the much needed personal avenue , "Coveted Dreams" (Initially known as "Life's Great !") :)
@ Tanya Sehgal
Accolades came & I found a path breaking journey in to the writing world. I know I need to go a long way, take jumping leaps into being a passionate writer but at least I am doing what I love the most !! Writing.... These stepping stones had filled the gaps in life, been my best friend all along the journey from a toddler to an adolescent , to being an adult. I have pen down various secrets & perceptions to heck lot of moods that made the string rock in my head.

 "Writing to me " is a part of my ailing self, the jolly girl next door
The lady all blue & red :), who fixes all dilemmas through the pen
Who was hesitant once, but the silver armor provided her the courage to fight all odds
And hug the best bet possible
My very first love, will remain with the soul till my last
I owe you a lot because to made my world turn upside down (in the cutest sense possible)...

P.S: I am thankful to all my lovely readers for standing with me, in times of crisis & joy... Some off the bloggers have been my perfect friends... Glad I started blogging & entered the coolest path for redemption, recovering my true self :) ;) Take care Folks !!

My First & Last !


                                           WOW ! This is a Blog Adda WOW Post !! Yipee :) :)


Just out of school, in the big world. I was making my way as an engineer but something came in between. It did diverted me for sometime but later changed in to my biggest strength.
I was in first year college and since the first week I saw him, I wanted to tell him "How much I loved him, for every move he made, for every turn he take, for eyes that were broad as a highway & face that could light up the whole town".... But, as far as my shyness was concerned I never got a chance until that day. I sat in the bus just two seats next to him & the same girl began talking to him, showing off like she was the most beautiful girl in town (bullshit she was not a bit :P).
The very moment I decided that I have to tell him no matter what, more or less he would say "No" :( But still I would have poured my heart out, that was the only thing I could have done at that time. I went straight to my best friend & told her, that I was ready finally, to tell him that I am madly, truly and hopelessly in love with him....
My friend was happy & shocked at the same time, knowing how shy & reserved I was.

                                                  ***********

So in the lunch break, I stood near his class, his name is Manhar by the way :) I beckoned him to come out, he was busy talking to a guy with some books. He came out & asked me what's the matter.

Me : Can we go down stairs, I want to talk to you.
Him : Oh ! Sure, but is everything fine?

After reaching the end of the corridor, I said hesitatingly
Me: I want to tell you something...
Him : I Know, You like me, Right ?
Me: No, "I LOVE YOU"

And he smiled, Ok ! So let's go towards the front premises, I don't want anyone to make jokes about both of us standing alone.
I was all white, my body was numbed, I don't know how I managed to say that....but I was so proud of myself.

Me: SO, you don't like me na?
Him : Ofcourse I like you, but can't say if I love you now...


My best friend was constantly watching us from the corner of her eyes, she was pretending to read the notice board :)

Him : SO, can we be friends?
Me: Hunn, Ohhk ! But what next, please don't tell anyone...
Him: Trust me I won't, but I want you to share everything with me & be my friend, then maybe I feel the same way as you do.
Me: I some what had the courage to smile at such a grave instance :)
"So, I will leave now"... I said

Him: Bus, itna hi kehna tha?
Me: Hunn

Him : Ohhk, will see you in the bus...

We became the best of friends & after 8 months he confessed that he had fallen head over heels in love with me. :) :) I could not imagine any thing happening between us, but he said the following lines to me on 16th march 2009...


"I haven't seen anyone as innocent as you. I thought probably I will never get married, as I thought I would not be able to love anyone ever, but when I met you & got to know you, I am cent percent sure that I would love to spend my entire life with you. I will surely marry you, but you have to give me some time, so that I could land up in a nice job & we could live happily"

Me: I smiled & said I Love you too ( Oh! after 8 months I told him that again, it felt so good :) )
I just need you beside me,to spend my entire life happily, even if we don't have enough money I would never complain, or never make a fuss. Will always be there for you.

It's been 3 lovely year since the time we are together :) Will be getting married in two years or so :) :)

;) That's was my first & last time I said those 3 magical words to anyone out of my family No, but he would be my family in some time, He is ! If you ask me :) We are one !

         

Thanks for  reading :) ;)

P.S: Since the V day is round the corner, I would like to say "Every Day is a Valentine Day, Please be my Valentine 24*7, 365 days, every year till I die, even after that !"

5 words Challenge !

Just going through a website I got an idea to write something with just 5 words as the back bone :)
I asked one of my friend, to give me 5 words & then I wrote this description. Penning something after a long time, ;) :)

Words :  Receptive, Education, Blue,  Honey ,Passion

Description : 

Under the sparkling blue sky of mid-autumn, Katherin lay exploring the intricately designed Pashmina Shawl. Wow ! What a master piece , isn’t it Michael?


Michael, nodded without paying any heed, he way too much engrossed in the suspense novel he was holding. The couple were opposite poles but what bonded them together was there love, passionately carved in their hearts. Michael, was an educationist who had a passion to discuss diverse topics with his class of “Super Scholars” from wide backgrounds. Education ran in his blood,  his parents were both Harvard Scholars & since childhood anything & everything excited him, but there was a problem, he never paid any importance to what perspective the other shared on a topic, a person who was the least receptive in his thoughts.

He looked up towards Katherin, what is it ?

With a sigh , she retorted nothing ! You carry on with this crap, pointing towards the novel.

Okay, as you wish. Would you like to come to the canteen for a stroll? Maybe we’ll  eat something, I am a bit hungry.

Yeah ! Silver toast with honey... she almost screeched. That was a typical day in the life of this couple, I wonder how they manage... LOL :)
