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' !

The motherhood challenge.

            A  few days ago, a dear friend of mine wrote a touching post disapproving the 'motherhood challenge' that has been going viral on Facebook. Motherhood challenge is all about women posting pictures with their children and tagging other women, who according to them, are 'awesome mothers'. But, my friend felt that by adding the words challenge and dare,  they were drawing a divide between themselves and others who weren't blessed enough.  I was touched by her views that defended women who might feel marginalised by such a challenge, although that might not be the motive behind it at all.
          Wonder how many women would feel the way my friend did! How many of the 'blessed ones' try and understand that behind such decisions might lie a reason, a helplessness that gives a woman endless pain? We haven't chosen to stay childless because of a lack of fondness for children. There were reasons and circumstances that stood in the way of us holdin…

You are The Man!

I admit, I am late in discussing this event, but did you watch the controversial 'Koffee with Karan' episode, two weeks ago? The one where the ubertalented Kangana Ranaut and Saif Ali Khan were Karan Johar's guests on his famous couch, sipping coffee along with him? Did you notice Kangana's confidence and her sassiness?   Do you remember her repartees, her jibes, her ripostes that were well-aimed at Mr. Johar? How fearlessly she spoke her mind without mincing words! And, she was in conversation with one of the Big Daddies of Bollywood.

I confess, I am an admirer of Ms. Ranaut, and I was blown away by her candour. The fact that she gave two hoots about diplomacy, and about the men in power in the hindi film industry,  shows how self-assured she is. She wasn't born into the industry, with a silver spoon; she entered the industry as an "outsider", who, despite being written off by the industry bigwigs, worked her way up the very competitive ladder, right to…

How I wish I could turn back the clock!

"Youth comes but once in a life time!"

             Traversing through  life, how often do we look back wistfully at our past and wish we could go back, wish we could live it all over again, just one more time?   Each time we witness the young around us enjoying life, enjoying their freedom and pursuing dreams with an enviable vigour, how we wish we could swap places! Sigh.

             A few days ago, I happened to have a chat with a 23 year old cousin. Excited about her future and the plans she had chalked out for herself, she had quite a lot to share with me. The sparkle in her eyes and the enthusiasm in her voice spoke a lot about how eager she was to embark upon the path she had chosen! Her enthusiasm was, indeed, contagious, for it left me yearning to turn the clock back and re-enter that age I left behind almost 2 decades ago.
