One Honest Post!!

Image
I had received the award from Shilpa (http://shilpaagarg.blogspot.com/) 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…

POSSIBILITY

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

She was sitting alone. She felt lonely. Loneliness brought anger. She has to do it! No other choice was there...She went to kitchen. She chose the sharpest knife and.............................

Everything about Faith...

Image
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

Hyacinth
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.....

Image
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 (http://xperiences-in-life.blogspot.com/) 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…

But now I feel I have to do something! So I am here today to discuss , share things with you .

The tag is - take any day in your life and chart out the brands you have used.

Oh my god! I didn't realise how many brands we use every day! There is no chance of repetition!

The brand of washing machine I use is The Microwave we have in our home is
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.
