Our guardian angels.

               I met a wonderful person today. Actually, I spoke to this person over the phone and in an instant I found myself pouring my heart out to her. What is so surprising about that? one might feel. It is just that I spoke to her for the very first time in my life. I  have enjoyed her prolific writing, but never met her or interacted with her in a conversation. I even don't know her full name, but the moment I heard her voice, I felt a warmth exude from her. It made me feel like opening up to her and in a matter of some minutes, I felt I had made a friend!
           What is it about some body that instantly makes you comfortable? What is it that tells you you do not need to put on a mask to hide behind? Throughout our life, we meet people who either make a place in our hearts or leave a scar on our souls. And right now, I just want to think about those people - those good people - who have made a place in my heart. They may or may not be with me throughout my journey, but there is something about them which will always stay in some corner of my heart till the end of time.
         Recently I read somewhere  that people come into our lives at different stages with a  purpose - maybe to open our eyes to certain facts of life, maybe to teach us something or maybe to help us change our perspective in order to make us a better person. And I fully agree with it. Along the way, I have met some truly wonderful human beings who have definitely made a place for themselves in my life, in my heart. They have helped me in many ways, have helped me evolve as  a person, helped me realise my dreams and also,at times, admonished me for being an imbecile! And, let me tell you, I have simply enjoyed the experience!
       I think, it is the sheer goodness of such people that makes the instant connection. I  also believe that we all have our guardian angels all around us who guide us, help us, pick us up when we fall. And these angels are none other than these beautiful people we run into at some time, on some street, during some special moments in life! I consider myself lucky at having met some truly great people who have left an indelible mark on my heart and in turn, have inspired me in many ways.
       I consider myself lucky to have, finally, recognised my 'angels' !

A pleasant surprise.

Life does that. Springs surprises when you are least expecting any. And  you are left baffled, overwhelmed, ecstatic, and, surprised, too! You find it unbelievable that such a thing could happen with you. And, it takes a lot of probing and analysing to finally accept that something this unimaginable could happen to you, too!

              The above emotions are  what I went through when I received a message from the Manager of Baggout that my blog had been selected as one of the 15 best love and relationships blogs in India. I must have read the message 5 times and still found it unbelievable. In fact, I thought someone was playing a prank. I made enquiries, tried finding out all about Baggout and went back to where I was - in a state of utter disbelief! Call it low self esteem if you wish, but I wondered how  anyone could find my one and a half year old blog worthy of any such mention.

        The feeling was  good, nay, great. But, unless I saw it all in black and w…

The Pakistani Bride - Book Review.

I had been on quite a long reading hiatus, which, fortunately, ended last week. I bought not one, but three books of varied genres to begin afresh. I wrote about Love stories, an anthology edited by Ruskin Bond, and,  I let you go', by Clare Mackintosh. In today's post, I review the third book, 'The Pakistani Bride', by the internationally acclaimed  author, Bapsi Sidhwa.

   Her books have been translated and published in several languages and she has received many an honour for her literary works. As humbled as I feel reviewing her book, I hope I am able to do justice to her work. So, help me God.


The Pakistani Bride  is the story of Zaitoon, a little girl orphaned during the exodus that was the Partition of India and Pakistan. The bloodbath that led to a complete annihilation of the fabric of our country left countless families shattered and destructed.

 The following two lines  paint an accurate picture of  the aftermath of the Partition, of people's struggl…

The Wise Man Said - Book Review.

Book: The Wise Man Said.

Author: Priya Kumar.

Genre: Motivational.



The story in a nutshell: Sammy, an 80 year old billionaire, realises that the secret behind his success in life has been the various sacrifices he made along the way. One of the foremost being his neglect towards his family that rendered him a lonely soul bereft of a single person cheering him for his win in the race called 'life'. This realisation spurs him to leave behind his identity and money and participate in the life he missed out on. Eleven months in a year, he takes on a new identity and sets out to experience anything - even death - to participate in adventures across the world. All he carries with him are his curiosity and his willingness to experience anything that life may present him with.

The Wise Man Said is a collection of twelve stories from Sammy's adventures that he penned down in his diary; experiences from his exciting journey that left him feeling enriched and contented at a life well liv…
