It's New Year again!
The first night of the year 2017, and here I'm typing no.. Typing my random thoughts which are bombarding the mind.
It's funny isn't it, how nothing changes yet a year passed by and when we reflect our present situation, we never anticipated we would end up here!
And also it's this time of year where your inbox is filled with wishes, relatives, friends, acquaintances, family friends etc etc who send and some call you midnight to wish you. And this circle includes close and not so close ones.
Why this rush to wish?! Where were these people all the other days? Do they wish just for the sake of it? Or do they really care?!
I never know.. These are just my personal thoughts.
As far as I'm concerned my night viz, 31st night was pretty much same and I went to bed at 11.15 p.m and I was fast asleep by 12 until my mother woke me up!!
I had switched off my phone but the universe had other plans and so I promptly went around the home wishing my family with a sleepy face, they were busy on phones which was thrust into my hands as the people on the line, the so called relatives wanted to wish and then there was knock by the neighbors, who now are like extended family!! No kidding!
There's something about these phone calls I tell you! I stand sleepy eyed holding the phone and they on the other hand utter a happy new year followed by please hand over the phone to your mom or wait your uncle wants to wish and so it goes until each member of their family wishes me and the last asks me to pass my phone to other family members and the cycle repeats!! And sometimes after wishing you don't know what to talk next! It happened with me sometimes I stutter or murmur not knowing what to say and the awkward silence seeps in.. And I end up passing the phone to others.. Maybe these things just happen with me.
Anyway, there was a time when even I was eager to wish and call.. I remember when I was a school going girl we used to celebrate it by cutting cake and watching the fireworks at the top of terrace. But not anymore, maybe because some wishes were fake! Ah one never knows isn't it?
I remember the year when my close uncle had called me on a new year's night and for the next new year is was no more, passed away days before new year, I didn't wish anyone that night.
I remember that last new year morning I wished someone who was close to me and this morning I felt pain because I can longer wish because we parted ways. Funny that I still yearn to wish and he may not even spare a thought!

But it's all part and parcel of life, so let me take it in my stride.
And this new year who ever wishes me or not, I believe it's important to wish myself, and make myself happy.
Treat myself good, and spread smiles.
And let me end my rants here with a note - you may or may not have resolutions for this year, but don't forget to be happy, buy that book you wanted to read, go to that place you always to go, cook/order something that you want to eat, talk to people you wanted to but avoided for various reasons. Plan a vacation, chase your dreams that you had boxed up for long. Express your feelings. Voice your thoughts.
Live your life. Spread love.

She : I never stood a chance, did I..?
He : It's not what you think..the chance of you cannot be equated to the chance of 'Us'..don't you think?
She : Chance of 'Us' can happen only if I am your choice..but the way you are talking now..
He : It's not that I don't have feelings for you think it was all a farce..! You don't..don't you?
She : I am not questioning your feelings..I remember you speaking about our bond and saying that you don't want to name it.. and all this while I thought that you meant our bond to be nameless..our relationship to be beyond name..without conforming to the boundaries but something pure and free..but never in my dream I thought that you don't want to give it a name!!
He : Yes I didn't name because I wanted our relationship to take its own course, I didn't want to restrict it..
She : I can construct dam to a river but never to an ocean.. you are one such …

Drop in the Ocean

This Post has been chosen by Blogadda team for the WOW Prompt - A Drop in the Ocean

I watched the butterfly flutter around flowers in delight enjoying the company of just bloomed flowers, what a beauty life is, I think everyone would have come across this line - "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, she became a Butterfly"
And I am still a caterpillar cocooned in a shell, wanting to explore the world yet chained down..


*a few years back*

The noises in and around didn't make much sense, a way to end it all was the only thing looked forward.

How did I end up here was the constant question buzzing in my head, half baked advises, half baked understanding and dreams everything pushed me far from thinking straight, after all I was just another student who had cleared her 12th exams - PCMB (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology), the pride of parents, a tag to boast! 
Just another stude…

Love - Poem

Hey! Just another attempt in writing poem, please bear with me Since childhood I am fascinated by the concept of reincarnation, I don't know if it's real or just an imagination, but it does fuel my mind with vivid fantasies and thoughts.
Happy reading :)
