Muted Joy

I was out taking advantage of the winter sale this morning and by the time I finished with my shopping it was well past noon.

Walking home with my loot I passed a group of kids talking and laughing at the bus stop.I didn’t give them a second glance until a few steps later I noticed that almost everyone at and around the stop were casting weird glances or shamelessly staring at these kids.Curious I turned to see what everyone was so interested in.They were average looksing school kids dressed in uniforms and carrying backpacks but somehow I hadn’t noticed that they were talking using hand gestures.The girls were giggling away and the guys fooling around.They were in their own joyous world oblivious to the stares of the people about them.The air was so full of their silent chatter and happiness it was impossible to look away.

This sight was so refreshing and touching that inspite of myself I stood there among the crowd staring at these innocent kids.Their silent happiness had touched me and left me with a feeling of having learnt something very valuable and meaningfull.


New year resolutions

This year I thought I’d take some time over my new year resolutions.I mean,actually sitting and thinking about it and not with a drink in my hand.And for once trying real hard to stick to them.

So after two days of lazing around(part of the first day I was working of a hangover-courtesy one too many Cuban Libre’ on 31st πŸ™‚ ) I have decided to start working on my resolutions for this year.

  • Firstly this year I am going to stick to my new year resolutions.And hopefully posting this on here will help in keeping me on track.
  • I will be brave.And by brave I mean in whatever-which way possible.I will be courageous in my decisions and actions.
    If I must say yes, then I shall bravely say it.
    If I must say no, then I shall say so without fear.
  • This year I’m going to get of of my lazy butt and work hard.Try and utilize every second productively.
    I have my exams coming in April and later towards the end of the year I’ll be giving C.A.T. and other entrances for an MBA and I want to give it my best shot.I think its my time to shine( or about time I shine πŸ˜› ).
  • I will spend more time playing my guitar and working towards my musical goals.
  • I want to work out seriously this year.Lose a couple of pounds,work that flab off.
  • Listen to more music.Read more books.Spend more time writing stories,poems and stuff.

That’s it for now but I will be adding things as and when I think of them.I already think I’m asking too much from myself because that right there is a badass list.Lets see how things go.

Looking forward to a great and rewarding year ahead.


Of Rituals and Goodbyes

It’s December.More than Christmas,the cold-*shivers violently πŸ˜› * and so many other wonderful things,December for me is about being nostalgic.I like sitting alone for hours on end wallowing in an retrospective/introspective mist.It’s like a ritual taking of stock thing:to look back over my journey through life so far,my dreams and aspirations and how they are shaping up,my failures and the lessons learnt from them and confronting my fears and doubts and so on.

Sitting there and watching the last year flashby in my minds-eye I feel so proud today.Proud and happy to be where I am,who I am.This feeling was so strong I knew I had to put it on here.I want to look back one day and remember this:the year of renewal,the tottering footsteps of a new start and hopefully of a splendid future.

So much has changed in the last year.Within me and around.I believe I have grown a lot.I also know the journey is far from over,that this is just the beginning.

Goodbye 2010.Waiting with joy,hope,apprehension and fear for the year 2011.

Sexy Santa

AND the winner is…

There are many advantages to being on Facebook,winning gift vouchers for Hard Rock Cafe is just one of them.

I don’t know why I’m so happy about such a simple thing.Maybe its just the thought of digging into a Legendary Burger or two-all expenses paid.The best things in life are supposed to be free afterall.


Love is….

Love is warmth on cold winter night.
