All in a Day's work

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 5; the fifth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. I usually woke up at 6:00 o'clock in the morning. Actually I set a alarm for 5:30 with the snooze of 10 minutes! So after two snoozes I wake up at the third snooze...Oh what a heavenly feeling my mind feels when I get that extra 30 minutes sleep! Yes sometimes I press wrong keys and the snooze alarm turns off...Then I have to rush through my work like a rocket but still, 'that 30 minutes' sleep and 'that heavenly feeling 'worth ed more such havoc mornings! I love these mornings as well for they show the signs of aliveness present deep inside me. I have to find out the recipes which are fastest,I could find out how fast my child can cope with the situation without complaint and how much my husband is capable of helping me if the time comes...My daugh…

Today's Flower (29-11-09) With a poem...

On the land alone I stand...
I am a nobody, loves me nobody
Still I am alive,so I stand!
Sending the vibes of the life...
Against all odds I just stand!
Life cycles around me
I have work just for me...
Doing the work I try to stand
Alone I live all my life
Give the life take the life
To my own limpid stand...
I am responsible for all I have!
On the land alone I stand
till the death come to me...
On the land alone I stand...
Nature always provides inspiration to live the life differently and write something totally different! This is my attempt to write a poem on this tree I spotted standing alone in the field but I have seen some people like this tree standing alone against all odds...

This is the second chapter of my Science fiction. I hope you will like it!

"Come on Guys, Please!Think about it again! I beg of you!" Shyam was at the point of break down. Lata could not take it any more! "OK Shyam I am ready to do it!" "What?!" Four voices said in unison. Two openly , one ; her own, in secret of her mind in great astonishment and one in pure joy! If she would be allowed to do some child's play she would say 'jinx' and nobody would able to say a thing till she want them to and say their name three times....For once she could talked and would be listened to without disturbance; or she would beat them. She couldn't stop laughing at the idea!
"Lata! What are you laughing at? Are you with us at all?" Maya's agitated voice brought her again in the present.In their dining room.
For past two weeks all three of them had successfully avoided Shyam talking them into this.But they all knew it was unavoidable. Today Shyam g…


I am starting to write a science fiction.I am trying to write a big story with the chapters each containing a full story. My first chapter is this....

She sat very disoriented in front of her computer.She wanted to write something....No, She has to write something but...She had an argument with him and now all she could think about was that argument! He never understood her! Nobody had understood her! Does she herself understand her? The question didn't surprise her. Sometimes she didn't understand herself! Before she used to defend herself to others as well as herself. But now a days she did not bother to do that! What difference it would make any way? Blaming any one would not take her anywhere. She couldn't change a thing.
At that instant the phone rang. She ignored it. It ranged for a long time and then stopped. Who was that? She wondered. She must buy an answering machine. The phone started ringing again. It must be someone who know her very well to know that she would …

Where I have been.....

I am back after a long time! I was having fun in this holiday! I had done some cleaning for Diwali. Then I kept away from this "time consuming box" as my daughter was having her exams.It is such a great distraction for her...Here I must confess that I am so addicted to it that I couldn't quite keep away from it. I just then started using the time I got on Face book to play farm ville and other games! So... All I am doing here is giving some excuses which are not true for my non creative period.
So after Diwali we went to the smashing holiday to Goa! We visited all the beaches had a great swim.Then we enjoyed a sunset cruise on river 'Mandavi'. We tried some adventure sports like para sailing and speed boat ride. We visited some temples, a spice garden and a church! We even got to see some Dolphins! It was a wonderful holiday overall!
Here are some photographs of my holiday for you.
On the left it is a Miramar beach of Panaji. Our Hotel was on the beach itself.

The Indian Dream

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 3; the third edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following "Blog-a-Ton"I was very much confused with this subject when I started thinking about writing it! It is so vast subject! What am I going to write? I was thinking about it for whole two days. Yesterday I slept thinking about it only and I had a dream.....

In that dream I was in a room full of people...No...Wait. It was full of many me's. All different creative me's. All me's were busy doing something or other and 'I' me started doing a tour... In dream everything is possible, you see!

First I visited a me who have all different maps of India scattered all over the place. "Indian Dream is not only the dream of Indian people but it can be a dream of some other people as well. We have to take those dreams in consideration as well...." She was sayin…

The Dream

I was sitting idle staring at the water surface. It reminded me of myself! Very cool and calm on the surface but very deep. So many secrets, so many mysteries it must be storing in its depths; no one knew. Suddenly I wanted to throw a stone in that lake to disturb it's calmness...To create some movement. I was looking for the stone when I saw her.

Was she coming to me? Really coming to me?I couldn't believe it! Was I happy to see her coming to me? I didn't know. I was a bit confused about my feelings. She is the only one who knew where to find me and how to find me still I didn't wante her to find me! What an irony.

She seemed very eager to meet me. She was almost running. She was very happy. Her face was looking like a fully bloomed flower with the morning dew. Her eyes were sparkling. If she was happy why is she coming to me? I started to feel very excited. Was she going to disappoint me?

She came near enough and saw my expressions which I was trying to hide.

One Honest Post!!

I had received the award from Shilpa ( Thanks Shilpa!! It is called as:-

The rules and regulations are as follows...
“Honest Scrap” Award, is given by bloggers to other bloggers who express themselves and write/blog from their heart & soul.
List 10 honest things about yourself — and make them interesting, even if you have to dig deep! Pass the award on to 7 bloggers who you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap and whose blogs you find brilliant in design and content.
So now I have to write 10 Honest things about me and I have to make them Interesting as well. How is it possible? See if all producers and directors made an honest movie , what will they be showing? If every writer started writing an honest book, what will they write about?( Can you see how naive I can be sometimes?!) OK. Yes I agree some people have such a life that if they start writing honest things people will be more than interested. But what can a simple middle class (ok. High…

The night was cool. Breeze was blowing sweet smell of flowers in air. Faint sound of radio playing somewhere made atmosphere romantic.

Everything about Faith...

Today I am going to write about the book "Acts Of Faith" By "Eric Segal". At the back page of the book it says

Acts Of Love
They met as children, innocents from two different worlds. And from that moment their lives were fated to be forever entwined. The unforgettable story of three extraordinary lives... and one forbidden love.

The three characters are Timothy, Daniel and Deborah. The book is written in the form of 'self narration' by all three of them. I liked this style of writing as it gives all characters different perspective. Writing for oneself and giving opinion about others gives us kind of broad outlook for the characters. It also shows us different angles of same happening! So I think it is very difficult to write in this style. Erich Segal had given justice to all the three characters.

The book impressed me from it's first page. After the dedication page, he had quoted a verse by St. Augustine, Confessions X.27:-

"Too late came I to love…

Today's Flower (13-9-09)

Candle Stick

These two pictures are taken when we had gone to the Kerala trip. There we visited so called botanical garden in Thekkadi. I used the words so called because that was not the conventional botanical garden with glass globes and all as we see in foreign countries. It was more like a nursery. They just give you a guided tour with local names of trees and the information they know. They allow you to take pictures. So I do not know the scientific or general names of these flowers! I so wish that we have really good botanical gardens in India soon..
The first picture was taken in Thekkadi and the other one was taken in the back waters of Aleppi. In India we find this Hyacinth almost in every river and pond. Many times it is very annoying as you can not control it's growth. But the purple flowers are so delicate and beautiful...

"A Flower Girl" Rambles.....

Oh my god! Am I really writing this? I am asking this question to myself over and over again!! But I have to write about this to get it out of my system.... I hope you really know what I mean!
It all started in my mind when my blogger friend Shruti ( gave me award and called me "a flower girl"! Thank you Shruti! The tag was kind of surprising! Actually it was shocking!! This very small thing started so many things.... Many memories came flooding back. My thought process wheels started rotating.
My first reaction was I started smiling....then laughing....and I couldn't stop myself!! My feelings were mixed. I was feeling happy, exhilarated, funny, disappointed?! I kind of felt shy as well. How can I face the blogger world with that name!? :-) Then I just remembered my other post where I have quoted that I do not mind anybody calling me anything!!{You can check it out here-What's in the calling....} (Actually there I meant about cal…

The different household products we use are

The car we have is
The repeated brands are:-

There are so many more I can give here but I do not have that much time (I have been very modest here!) So I will just stop here.
