Lazy Sundays.

         
                   SUNDAY..What would we do without this wonder day? Really, after slogging like donkeys all week long, there is a relief we feel when we think about this day. No need for setting the alarm, or rushing through the day, working like robots at the assembly line in a factory.  Instead, just laze around, give the nerves the much needed break from the 'edgy' living, and relax, to get those batteries charged!

              Today, I did just that! And, boy! did I enjoy it! Decided to get pampered, after quite a long time. Day in, day out, we pamper our families. So, definitely, we, too, need some, don't we? Just a hop, skip and jump, and there I was, at my beautician's, looking forward to some heavy duty pampering. A luxurious head massage was what I desperately needed. It had been going through too much stress, lately. So, some TLC was in order.

             My girl at the salon does have magic in her fingers. After asking me to sit back and relax, she got down to business:  her fingers began a slow, rhythmic  dance on my scalp, making me drowsy in no time at all! I had just begun to slip in a state of coma, when I was  in for a pleasant surprise. She brought out the head massager -- a gadget she strapped onto her hand -- which vibrated when switched on. Then, it was sheer bliss! Intoxicating! Relieving! Relaxing! Ummmm......she had me all moaning and groaning..asking for more! Yes, she, too, had that amused look on her face, coupled with an embarrassed giggle. But, I was beyond caring what the world thought about this lunatic sitting in the salon!

             I had shut out the world and its madness, and had no intention of disturbing this state of inebriation for anything at all. 45 minutes of kneading of tired muscles, 45 minutes of loosening of  tensed nerves, and I was ready to slip into this drunken stupor like state. Getting out of that chair after those precious 45 minutes and going back to the madding world, was, however, an ordeal. But, I don't want to think of it. I simply want to keep floating. And fix an appointment for my next session. For next Sunday!

On love and attachments.

Learning to live without the person whom we loved more than our life is one of the toughest things we humans experience during our life.
Almost every moment of our day we spend in their shadows, enveloped in their love; we don't even realise when they became an extension of our selves. We come to accept them along with their flaws, their peculiarities, which often have the potential to drain us of our patience. Yet, we love them, unconditionally, at times wondering how we survived before they entered our world. Often, we also wonder how we will ever survive after they leave our world.

The human mind is such.  Its ability to give birth to a thought and then mull over it however unpleasant it may be, is quite baffling! We realise we stand to lose our sanity if we don't get rid of that negative thought; we understand how important it is to live in the moment and enjoy it with the loved ones we fear losing someday, yet we keep worrying ourselves to death about what would happen t…

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!"
               ___H.W.Longfellow.



             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.

          Were I to find Aladdin's lamp, I would ask the Genie to transport me back to the past I so wish…
