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, bu…

Pintoo.

Many years ago, when I was a little girl, a little guy came into my life and put a big smile on my face and a lot of love in my heart. It happened one evening when I was out playing with my friends. A girl from my neighbourhood appeared at the play ground armed with the cutest rabbit I had ever seen. White fur with a dash of coffee brown on his long ears and red eyes like two tiny buttons - yes, this  is the little guy I spoke about! We all gathered around the girl, fascinated, watching in awe as he hopped around  us. We all asked her what she was doing with this rabbit at the play ground and she said that her father ( who was a very strict man) had asked her to get rid of 'the creature' before he himself threw it out of the house! We were aghast on hearing this, and all the more stunned to see this girl actually planning to forsake this cute little fellow right there at the play ground!
       Everyone began to wonder what lay in store for him  when I - god knows wh…

A sweet memory.

I remember vividly - it was my first day at college. Although there was a slight nervousness, I was at ease as it was an all girls' college. I had been late in getting the admission so I had missed out on some days as well as some lessons. Being a newcomer, I took an unoccupied bench and busied myself  looking around for a friendly face among the sea of pretty faces in the classroom. That was when a girl with curly hair and very simple looks entered my line of vision. She smiled and asked me my name. I introduced myself and asked her about herself. She was quite a simpleton, but her very beautiful soul peeped out of her loving, brown eyes. She quickly enquired about all the notes I had missed out on and also supplied information about all the professors and our classmates. We bonded right from the word go. I knew I had made a friend - a very large hearted friend.
        Everyday we met, we chatted about this and that and grew closer to each other. I realised she was a …

Obsessively compulsive...

Today has been a very tiring day.For the third time since morning my pet dog is in the mood for some fun, which includes jumping and rolling on the bed, throwing the pillows on the floor and watching me run out of patience! No, I don't run out of patience because he is rolling on the bed, but because the pillows and cushions that I had arranged so well and at particular angles are all on the floor or strewn all over the bed. I can see the mischievous smile in his big,brown eyes and my heart melts. But, my mind...my mind is simply unable to take in the scene. The bed cover is also  messed up and it now has wrinkles on it!! Aah! All that hard work has gone to the dogs.....literally! But, for the sake of my little guy, I smile and tickle his tummy and get the sloppiest kiss ever! I then shoo him off the bed and get back to getting the bed in order....all over again...for the third time in two hours!
      Things in my house need to be in order....ORDER. And at particular ang…
