Times change, faces change but the smile remains the same.
All that we peace.

Smiling buddha...

The clock keeps ticking.
Sun rises and it sets.
Seasons come and seasons go.
There is birth and there is death.
Things are created, things are distroyed.

But between this creation and anhilation, life celebrates.

Buddha knows ... and thus he smiles ...

Lead lady

When I was young they told me to sit straight. To sit still, To sit in a corner, To sit with my legs together, To sit with my legs crossed, To sit demurely, To sit with my shoulders squared, To sit with my chest out, To sit with my head down, To sit quietly, To sit so as not to attract attention, To sit with the girls, To sit in a row, To sit on the back seat, To sit and not to stand, To sit because others were sitting, To sit and just listen.
Now , Nobody sits till I do.

This is Van-Heusen ad in Times of India. Many things apply to me except the last one because I am still very young. The Lead Lady in my family is still my grandmother. After independence things have changed a lot. Fortunately grandpa kept the business running even after losing estates to the government. He keeps me asking 'why you have to work there?'. Its not that I am needed there as business is handled by dad n brothers. But some day I will have to go back to 'The Family' but as of now, enjoying freedom :-)

And it rained

Yesterday evening it rained and it poured. I even managed to get wet.
We have no electricity at home, hope it comes back in time.

But despite all clutter it brings, i love rains. How about you?

Please forgive me if you dont understand this post.
More than six months have passed after i wrote this. And I am realizing that there can be many more dimensions to confusion. Life has started coming nearer and nearer to me but its also becoming more and more strange. Things which were too obvious to me have started looking like preplanned coincidences. There is too much change and too much warmth surrounding me. So i am afraid. Life has become like a drawn bow, I fear that it will fall apart. There is a soft tension, like a taut string. And it vibrates. I can almost feel its sound running on in the background. Till now i considered my life as normal but seems it was not. There was still much more activity going on in the background always, for me. And now i am just becoming aware of it. Life has always supported me, for basic need, that of survival.
But this goodness sometimes stays remote from me. It stands away and just stares at me and then my heart pains. I feel like a child away from its mother. It erodes me, like waves of ocean taking out land, bit by bit, eating it away. But may be that is what life wants from me. To erode away things which are not real.

Life supports life, and i think i am realizing it.

Still waiting...

People see GOD,
in a grain of sand...

I found GOD,
in a drop of water...
