Wishes (Again)

This post is a participant of yet another  “Wishlist Wednesday” writing prompt (if u remember the last one) hosted by the renowned Indian author, Mrs. Preeti Shenoy, on her blog.  


I wish I could touch……..

The SKY (whenever I want)
OK. Now, I know this falls in the conventional category of wishes, but that’s a sign of me being normal, I guess. ;)
Umm…So I have always wanted to 'touch the sky' and in fact its one of my those eerie but enticing hobbies, to just lie on my back staring into the sky. 
“If only I had been an artist, the sky above my house would be holding a portrait of my thoughts”.*
Since I am a back bencher in that respect, I choose to just lie down and decipher numerous shapes and figures scattered up there. (And I do that only in pleasant weather. I am normal, remember? :P )
I bet a lot many of you do that, and you may also agree that it’s a fabulous feeling. (Oh c’mon! Nod in a yes, even if you don’t….or I might feel hurt :P )
And yeah, my favorite part is just swaying my fingers and signing my name on that blank space. HeHe :D

CLAY (as a potter)
I've seen this pottery thing only on the television, and I love the way the clay changes its form. And I know that  if I attempt any such task, it will end up in nothing, so I’ll try that if any potter signs a deal agreeing to tolerate me till at least some thousands trials. :D
[This came up when I suddenly recalled Titan Raga’s ad, starring Katrina :P. No! I am not her fan! Titan yaar! ]

Someone’s HEART (metaphorically)
This one’s yet another usual wish. Yup, even I am waiting for something like that to happen, in its truest form, though.
Otherwise I know I am kind and chirpy enough to have made a tiny space in the hearts of quite many people around me ;)

So that was all. I hope you had a good read.
Thanks for your visit J

And a special mention…I am loving this prompt writing  exercise. At least it’s giving me something to add to my collection, and not to forget, its good to read other entries too. I found some awesome blogs that way J 


*that's a self written quote :D

You are my Life, my Angel, my Genie

Every time
 I look into your face

I witness the love you embrace,

The love for us and dad.

our li'l happiness is enough to make you glad

I love you Maa for what you have been to me,

you are my life, my angel, my genie.

Always involved in making us better,

you are the sole reason that our life's a glitter.

There were days when I cried at my highest pitch,

but you handled me without any hitch.

You smiled even at my silliest acts,

your kiss a reward for all my tacts.

I love you ma for what you have been to me,

you are my life, my angel, my genie.

Whenever I am there as a culprit before dad,

you stand by me,not letting me be sad.

Whatever be the circumstances around,

you've been selfless and profound.

I have known you suffering a lot in life,

as a sister,a mother, a wife.

But you've always stayed mute,

none of our beliefs you chose to refute.

I am sorry Maa for times I've been rude,

when I was stupid to show ingratitude.

Maa, .you taught me how to deal with this world,

my invisible support when situations are curled.

I love you ma for what you have been to me,

you are my life, my angel, my genie.

This post is a participant in the WRITING PROMPT hosted  by the lovely, Preeti Shenoy Ji J (I hope you don’t mind me writing a ‘ji’, ma’am) every Wednesday, titled “Wishlist Wednesday”. And this one’s a first attempt by me as I recently joined her blog.

I wish I had one more chance to………………

Normally, I would enlist around 100s of such wishes because in all these 19 yrs (almost) of my life, one thing that has gained utmost importance is “wishing” mostly for re-living, undoing or repairing some beautiful and few  ‘not-so-happening’ happenings! But for the sake of my readers (and for a fair chance to win the novel :P), I am keeping it  little.

I wish I had one more chance to:

Be a KID: Today, I am a normal teen-adult with my share of happiness and sorrows. Though I am ever grateful to the Almighty for giving me this life and helping me reach so far, I yearn to live my childhood once again. That is one phase which lets us enjoy life unconditionally and in its purest form. You don’t have to ponder much over any thing, you don’t have to fake any of your laughs, you don’t ‘know’ how to hide things, you don’t know what being strained feels like, you don’t have to worry about what the ‘world’ thinks because what matters most then is a smiling reward from your parents, you don’t have to be the object of any lewd stares, you love and you are loved!
I hold one more reason for this wish  to troll back to my childhood. So that I can wipe away my mother’s tears, which I didn’t quite understand then.
The kiddie me :)

Be Born: So that this time I am born as a girl with some really girlish qualities that would rid my mom of thinking to send me to those ‘cooking’ and ‘sewing’ classes. :D, OR better be born as a boy! ;)

Attempt few of my exams (:D) : I know it sounds a bit mindless, but I wish to rewrite my class 10th final Math’s paper and class 12th Economics’ paper, in particular, as time ran faster than my pen could and I couldn’t finish these exams. (Ok! I admit it was my fault L )

 Be with my childhood best friend: City changed and so did the friends. But I miss Aditi a lot. It was due to lack of communication that we soon lost contact when we departed 8-9 yrs back, and today I have no idea of her whereabouts, not even through FB. If only, I get this ‘one more chance’…….

Say a proper BYE: To people with whom I got disconnected unknowingly and who really mattered to me….or just befriend them once again.

Be the cause of people’s happiness: Not one, but I want endless no. of such chances. Nothing can delight you more than an unspoken ‘thank-you’ from someone.

I hope these were some little enough and meaningful wishes I cling to.

Good Day!

A 'happy' NEW YEAR

So… you are here…2013! Welcome! Welcome! I know it might had been a difficult journey throughout with all those debates considering the debacle of the world! (Oooh! How much I wished that was true…:-< ). But whoa! You fought them all.
Needless to mention, India witnessed a scandalous end to the previous year, but as quoted by......someone great, ofcourse  “Hope : Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,  Whispering 'it will be happier'...” * and thus, walking by this line, keeping our spirits higher we hopped forward with hopes for a better existence personally, as well as publicly.

Ohk. Much of all those philos. I toh had a beautiful start to this year, all thanks to the quick planning over a candid new year chat with my friend (close vali).
I was busy murmuring lovely swears for my equally lovely buddies for not caring to call me up while my brothers were busy with their cellphones, when I got one an hour after the arrival of this year, from Tee (Aartee). I was in no mood for a ‘blast’ (by the way, why is it called so?). Suddenly, in the morning (read: by 12), the Mentos moment! (dimag ki batti jali) and I was all ready for some real revelry. In about 2 hours, me n Ita (Alokita) were at Tee’s place relishing a piece of cake which (good for her) she saved from the midnight’s celebration :P and following it, was some yum IDLIS waiting for us !
 After like properly stuffing our food storage, we opted to put the plan in action. The basic idea was to make some other people’s first day of the new year a happy one! But it took us good 30 minutes to realize the best use of the bucks collected for the cause. 
But what followed was worth it! An hour later we were finally at the gates of a Shelter Home, with a polybag of cookies (Unka toh ho gaya bhai GOOD DAY! :) ) . Andddd! It was a WOW experience! I can’t remember if smile parted my face even for a second, while I met those indeed human and pure beings. For the first time, I had this happy realization that our small visit is much more than a lot to them. Their curved up lips conveyed that joyful feeling. I’ll make sure I meet those happy faces very often. :)

Thank God for that! J

Later, a short span spent with the girls at a nearby Ghat was another merry time of the day, as nothing in my city can be as enthralling as just sitting on the stairs of the bank overlooking Ganges, and at that juncture you feel millions of creative ideas sprouting up in your mind. That’s the magic!

(Thankyou Tee, Ita and Sur (Surbhi) :) )

And if that wasn’t ‘more’ than enough for a handsome beginning, I got a call from Mum to meet her at a temple (Bula hi liya Bhagwan ne ;) ) and reaching there, I am attended by two of my sweet little cousin sisters! So, back home it had to be a fun time with chocolates, scrumptious dinner, music, dance and what seemed to be a laughing riot. :D

 A Day To Remember’ J J J


P.S.: Psycho, when talking about friends, no doubt I was quite happy after our talk. You were the first and the only one I called (wrong timing though :( ). You owe me this one :P Thankyou too! :)

P.P.S.: for the first time ever in the last 4 months, THANKYOU  BHU, for delaying  the exam scheduled for 3rd Jan.
