Wordy Wednesday.

              Chapter 4

              Chapter 5.

                         "I extend my hand and feel her's slip into mine, as if that's where it has always belonged! I look up into her deep blue eyes and find myself there;  those eyes, which I have looked into for lifetimes together. She giggles softly and murmurs into my ears,"Lost again in the deep blue sea, are we?" And, it sends shivers down my spine. The magnetic energy that runs through us each time we are together confirms my belief that we have been together. Always!"  Serena spoke in a hushed tone; a tear slipped down her right eye. She smiled a contented smile. As if she had finally found the answer. As if she was finally home, where she belonged.

           She had visited her past life, where she had been Jeremy, a sailor.  He had lived a happy life with his soul-mate Natasha, whom he had loved  since his childhood. How glad that had made Serena, to know she had lived such a fulfilling life! 

           "Do you think those eyes belong to someone from your present life? Do you think you have felt the softness of those hands, the warmth of that breath, in someone you may know? Look deep into the eyes of all those who are special to you, close to you. Someone who makes you feel eternally happy, the way you can't feel with any other soul on earth; can you find that face?" Dr. Weiss asked Serena, as she lay on the couch, her eyes closed, her face calm, searching for the faces of her dear ones. 

         She had ascended on the stage with a lot of trepidation; a bundle of nerves as she prepared to get hypnotised by Dr. Weiss. She had told him about herself, about her dreams, about the tunnels she so loved and about her search - for her mother and for a soul mate - which would complete her. 

         She had visited a couple of her past births: one, where she had been a sailor (which explained her love of sailing to far off places), and the other where she had been a little girl, who had fallen sick and been devoured by the illness, losing her life at a tender age. A life, which had been snuffed out very soon.  Comparatively, her life as Jeremy had been a happy one. He had been lucky enough to  marry his childhood sweetheart and live a blessed life.  A past that had made Serena happy to visit. 

             But, finding that love in her present life was what she pined for. She decided to set a meeting with the doctor at his clinic, and go in for regression sessions till the time she found an answer. And, find an answer, she would. Her experience at the workshop had proved that to her.

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.

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

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…
