I see those sparkling eyes...!

Are they sparkling because of the burning desire that runs deep down the oceans of eternity, depths that the world has never seen…Or are they sparkling because they are moist and the oceans are salty with it…Moisture that doesn’t run on the surface but deep within..

But the more I look at it the more I get convinced that they were merely mocking at me. It was that friendly mocking laughter, gayety personified. All one has to do is look down the precipice to realize the enormity of the thoughts and the background behind those wonderful eyes. The secrets and the unrevealed thoughts all displayed in front of you without one’s knowledge…Eyes the master revealer for those who want to look deep inside!!!

An Ambigram!

Thanks to one of my friend I found out something new about my name after all these years…My name is apparently an Ambigram!! For those of you who doesn’t know what an Ambigram is, then please have a look at the image below and see what you can come up with…

Basically an Ambigram is a graphical figure that spells out one or more words not only in its form as presented, but also in another direction or orientation.

So in my case my name and its inverted image looks the same!! When my friend first pointed it out to me I just laughed saying there is no such thing…Then after she sent me the image I was thoroughly perplexed…:) Then I googled about it..(you can read more about it here). It was nice to see such symmetry in my name too..;-) haha..

Calling TIME!!

With eyes filled with ambition,

And heart bulging with passion,

Elusive ‘time’, I search for you,

There is so much to do,

Without much ado,

So many things to tick on the excel sheet,

But not an ounce of time to keep.

During the time of recession and depression,

When everything is on sale and reduction,

What was earlier ‘free’,

Has changed its status to busy,

Oh Time! What’s happening?

Why are you running?

Its past 2 in the night, with few hours to go,

For the early morning chores,

The next day beckons,

At a rate, I have lost count, I reckon,

Am I the one who said,

Prioritize and Rationalize,

As one has to always find time for One’s interests in life…


It has been a very hectic couple of weeks and I don’t see it changing for the next few months atleast…:(

In retrospect, maybe I should be happy that I don’t have the time to waste and kill..

As one of my good friend said, its always better to search for time rather than search for tasks to do in the free time..:)

The Curious case of ‘Tumbling Spider’

Today was one of those days when I had to reach office by 6.30 AM. So inevitably I had to get up really early to complete my usual early morning chores at an unusual hour…!

It was also an hour when you get to see the spiders and roaches at their active best…I don’t have the habit of killing them whenever I see one of those running around…Most often than not, I just displace them from their current location and throw them where I might not go until the near future(don’t ask me why, but I hate both the sight of them and the thought of killing them!!) Anyway I digress…

So today I saw this solitary spider trying to climb the bathroom door…The door was wet and it was struggling to get a grip on it and hence for every few steps it took to climb up, it would invariably tumble and lose more height than it had gained…My clothes were hanging above in the hanger and I didn’t want it to reach anywhere near my clothes…So I decided that if it comes anywhere near it I will pour water on it, flush it down the urinal and give it a watery grave…

But the whole time I was there it never reached beyond the first half of the door…I just carried on with my daily duties and just before I left for office I wanted to check where this hard working creature was and to my surprise I found it right at the top of the door. It made me wonder what would have happened if it had actually succeeded the first time. Even though it would have managed to reach near the top of the door it would have ultimately ended up in a watery grave…

The very fact that it failed so many times in the matter of 15 min that I was there, or in other words ‘because’ it failed to make it past the half way mark inspite of its best efforts, it remained alive and now happily sat in its web!! What contrast in the end result..!!

Can you see, how our lives could be paralleled to this? Have you ever wondered what would have happened if everything had worked out the first time you tried..!!

Even though I prefer everything to work out the first time, life’s best lessons are learnt when you fail and overcome it eventually…

It just reminded me of the quote “What we do does not define who we are. What defines us is how we rise after falling…”
