Love struck.

                  Life is a bag of surprises. What might pop out at what hour,  we never know. A bit like the magician's trunk. I was so lost in the day to day inanities, that I failed to realise when I was struck with Cupid's arrow! Yes, Cupid's arrow, as in, 'falling in love'. I am at an age where I very well know that 'love' is nothing but a chemical imbalance caused by our crazy hormones. The result is, we behave like absolute dim wits, who know not what they do! But, in spite of that, here I am, with a heart lost to a man, far beyond my reach.

               Oh, come on! Don't start giggling and calling me insane! Love has no shelf life. It can happen anytime, anywhere. It ain't in our hands, is it?  I realised I had fallen in love quite recently. I mean, I realised it was love and not just infatuation. And, believe me, as I said earlier, it is a MAN I am in love with. A real, live man. An older man, to be precise. No young guys for me. Don't you know, wine tastes better with age?  What? Is it getting weirder and weirder? Well, thats life!

             Now, I know you will wonder why am I announcing it to the world. Well, for the simple reason that, you all are my dear friends. Don't we share our innermost feelings  with our friends? So, here's his picture: he is tall, dark, handsome, with a voice that makes me go weak in the knees. Yes, it is his voice that did the trick! And, the salt and pepper hair, those intense eyes and that electrifying personality. Oh! Merely thinking about him makes my heart skip a beat, too many!

              What did you say? Does my husband know about it? Yes, sir, he does! I told him. In fact, I made the announcement the other day. He seems to be okay with it.  Look, I confess, I am happily married, but,  what can I do? I have a heart so big. Two men can easily reside there, happily, ever after.

           His name? Didn't you all realise it by now?.Who else has that baritone voice, that striking personality, which at the age of 70 plus can give youngsters a run for their money? Yes, Amitabh Bachchan, who else?! The sexy old man of our very own Bollywood, who makes a million female hearts go aflutter. Well, mine did! So, here is fodder for gossip for all you bored-with-life souls out there. Go ahead, talk. Have a good day! Hope you all learn to enjoy life a bit, fall in love, a bit. It is fun!

           Oops!  Forgot to mention, there are a couple of them more in line. A certain Mr. Gere and Mr. Ford, from overseas, too, took away my heart and swept me off my feet!

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…

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…

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…
