The sands of time

Time’s playing games
And it seems I’m losing
It was right there
Wonder where it went
Wonder if it will return

Years gone by, in a flash
Hours turn to minutes
And minutes to moments
Moments, fly away…

Rushing by like that
You’d think it has a destination to reach
A deadline to meet
A race to win…

Does it have an end?
Did it have a beginning?

I’m trying hard to catch up,
Running, gasping for breath
But it never slows down,
The closer I try to get,
The more I lag behind

And I’m losing
Against time...

The V-day Tag

Back after some time...and what dyu know I have another tag waiting to be executed! Thrillsville aint it?! Might as well do it, since Arvind is a good friend...and besides he's just gettin back at me for tagging him some time back! So buddy, we're even now ok?!

8 things I want in my this could take a while!

8. Great sense of humour: Oh yes extremely important. I wanna be happy happy happy!!

7. Exceptionally high level of patience: For his own good. Coz when I lose it, I'm not fit to be in people's company.

6. Romantic: Would love it when he gets all mushy!

5. Supportive: I would want him to believe in me, and encourage me to go on when I feel like giving up.

4. Great between the sheets: What!? I dont want a sagging love life! ;)

3. Brainy: To keep my interest alive, coz I can get bored pretty easily.

2. Confident: A man who's sure of himself is always a turn-on!

1. Presentable: No twisted face, arms, or legs!

Whew! Alright, that's done! I hope I've made my 'demands' loud and clear!! Hehe! Oh so now I have to tag more people? A thousand apologies in advance! The people on my hitlist are:

Rohit Talwar
Koi pahailee

Giddyap! :)

A new beginning

After Dadaji and Dadima, she was the eldest in the family. We were broken after they expired, the family got scattered. She held us together. We had someone to turn to for advice in our times of distress, and celebration. Had.

In the last couple of months, she was bedridden, paralysed from head to toe; a vegetable. The doctors fractured her body with injections and drips. Nothing worked. She slipped into a coma. They revived her. Her heart gave up. They put her on a life support system. Life- support. The word scares me. Living with the help of machines. No, not living. Existing.

The last straw was when her kidneys failed. There was no hope. She was begging to take our leave. But we held on...increasing her pain with each passing day.

Today they removed the machines. Today, they set her free. We knew this had to happen. But the realisation that she's gone...its unbearable. We're unsure of what is going to happen next. We're unsure if we'll live up to her expectations. The thought of being on our own, without her blessings...

Its time we learnt to take our own decisions. It'll be tough without her. Maybe we'll make some mistakes. But we'll also learn from them. She taught us a lot when she was with us. Her teachings will not go in vain.

May God bless her.

Missed you all!

Oh it feels so good to be back agen! I'm so very sorry to vanish like that, without warning. The last few days have been really really hectic around here. My house is being renovated from top to bottom...and everthing is just strewn around. I'm literally living out of a carton. My beloved computer is dismantled so I'm completely helpless! But hey I just discovered a cyber cafe today, and couldnt resist the temptation to say hey to my favorite blogger buddies! Missed you all so so so much! Was getting regular updates from TripleSix on the comments everyone was sending in. Thankyou all sooo much for being so patient with me. Although I still wont be very regular, but I'll make it a point to visit at least once a day. The project also is going to take up a lot of my time...feels odd to be suddenly busy!

Well, I better run along, there's loads of work to be done! Take care everyone! :)
