#MondayMusings & #TT Three Little Pigs

From Pinterest
The title might sound a little absurd, but today morning an incident happened, and somehow I am proud of my baby brother.

So, I dropped my little brother at his work place on a rainy monday morning. I see his friends drinking tea in the nearby tea-stall waving to my brother.
There is this big gutter that goes near his work place.

While I was starting my car, I see my brother rolling is pants and his sleeve up and jumping into the gutter. I panicked. It was a dirty deep gutter. Then I saw two of his friends jumping in too. A crowd started to form there. I ran towards them, and what I see gave me an "Aww" and a "proud sister" feeling.
My brother and his friends, jumped in to rescue 3 baby piglets from the gutter.

The little pigs would have drowned and died.

My baby brother, saved them, inspite of being late for work, inspite of wearing well-pressed work formals, he jumped in for the sake of those animals.

I am proud of him

Mag 280: Masked

Her eyes could speak a thousand words
Those eyes that could make any man fall in love
Her eyes now masks how the heart feels
Someday day someone would walk by
And mend her broken heart

Someday someone, would break that mask apart

FF: My First Snow

unnamedI am from that part of the planet, where snow is not rare, its impossible. The minimum temperature that I have ever seen in my life is 12 degrees Celsius, that is about 53.6 Fahrenheit.
I have seen very hot summers, city stopping rains, a very rare once in 10 years 2 minute hailstones, but snow never.

So, I went to Switzerland for a project a few years back, and was in a meeting inside the meeting room. Inside you really don't see or feel the snow. 
The moment I stepped out of the building, it was all white. 2 feet heap of snow. 

Trust me! I couldn't contain my excitement. I went ballistic. 
I ran out on the snow like a happy 5 year old, with my office shoes.
I did not realize that snow makes the road slippery. 

Bamm! I went sliding like a toppling bowling pin.

And to top it all, my Swiss colleague gave me that "Like seriously? Its just snow" look

I know its just snow for him, but it was THE Snow for me. 

My First Snowy Day makes me smile whenever I think about it.

APED: Stranger on the Street


A stranger on the street
Very simple and sweet

A flute on his lip
And a flask on his hip

That soothing sound
That wakes up even a wilting leaf lying around

So powerful, that sound
Like a raging fire, that sees so bound

His eyes so innocent, that spread divine light
Like a child’s delight
That stranger on the street, I wonder, What is he really like

#MondayMusings: New Employee

Sometimes I enter a room full of new people.

I wonder to myself, 
Am I wearing the right clothes?
Will I fit in?
Why is everyone looking at me, like that?
Will I be accepted?

Then, someone walks up to me, and I get introduced as “The New Employee” who is replacing “The Very Old Employee”

I can see, I am being judged, I can feel their eyes on m back. I can see my every move being scrutinized.

I wanted to make friends, I wanted to be liked in this new place. I made efforts. I did what they wanted me to do. I hoped someday, I would be a part of their clan.

After a while I realized, when I was going out of my way to please others, I was losing my self-worth.
I stopped, I looked at myself and said “I am the best, why do I need to be accepted by anyone else. They like me or not doesn’t matter anymore. I love myself. I have accepted my flaws”

They love me, They hate me, They ridicule me, They reject me.
In the end of the day, I know that I would never be good enough for someone around. But, then it is their problem.

I shall be ME 

- I am the Old New Employee

Mag 278: Walk Along

Everyone in life learns to not  count on others for your happiness.
Everyone learns it the hard way after being back stabbed by own people
Being good doesn't always mean, other will be good to you too

Look at yourself sometime, deep inside
You have been hurt, scarred, bruised, fallen, betrayed  but you still stand strong

You are here alive, for a purpose
A purpose, The Lord has set for you

You are the Lord's baby, You are his Princess with a shiny crown
If ever you fall again, just straighten your crown and walk strong

APED: Train of Life

Sitting huddled near the window of an almost empty First Class Ladies compartment in the Mumbai Local, clad in a red kurta and jeans, with clunky junk jewelry adorning her ears and neck, colorful bangles on her wrist sounding like distant bells with a big tote bag on her right, an open book on her lap and legs kept crossed on the empty seat in front of her.

quoted6It made a perfect picture of serenity looking at her, wisps of loose hair, adorning her face made her look like a little grown up pixie.

Looking outside the window, she saw the full round moon following he, cutting through the clouds, it looked as if the moon was was protecting her like silent protective lover, calm, quiet and bright. Just like her mind, which had a million emotions piling up at this very moment.

The rhythmic "khadak khadak" of the train was like a lullaby to her tired body. Moving on slowly from station to station, sometimes the platforms on the left, sometimes the right.
Many people getting in the train and getting off it.

Just like life, every train is a person and the tracks are life
Everyone has a destination to reach,
Some reach there fast, some reach there slow
Many trains have gone through the way that you are going on, many train will in future come by the same way
On the way many people, get in and get off at different stations of life
The stops of your life, like the station are sometimes on the right, sometimes left and sometimes both the ways
The other trains are like the people who pass by us.
Strangers become friends, friends become strangers
Some people get pushed, some get a permanent place
Some smiles, some anger, some hate, some love
Some trains have made a mark somewhere, some are just another everyday trains

Trains breakdown too...people hurls stones at it when angry...they garland it when happy...just like abuses hurled on a person

Like Life...The trains moves on.......

FSF: Thief

He started from nothing, A selfish man,  A thief in a disguise.

He wanted everything a man could possess, He was ambitious, A thief in disguise.

Along the way, he gathered gold, Along the way, he hurt, killed and stole, For, he was the thief in disguise.

And came that day when, destiny struck its Golden sword, Without no friends, was lying his bloodied body so sore, All the riches, gone and washed away, No one to console, when alone he lay. That day he, loneliness made him realize, He was nothing.

 It was Time always,who is a thief in disguise

Mag 277: Water Girl

Bathers, 1950 by George Tooker
Those long legs
That smooth skin
My eyes follow her all along
In the waters, she leaps
The sun streaming on her golden skin
She comes out, with dripping water on her sculpted self
Oh this girl! she are like a loaded pistol, on my head
She are perfectly innocent, but I can't stop thinking about how she can blow my mind

This post is written for Magpie Tales, Mag 277

APED: Innocent

She has innocent eyes
An angel face
A delicate walk
The way her hips sway, might make any man fall for her way
The personality of a charmer, and instict of a killer
She looks with those big baby eyes and gives a grin, 
Those innocent eyes have more dark secrets than one can imagine

3-Day Quote Challenge: Day 3: Tribute to Mariyln Monroe

One woman whose looks, whose quotes really amaze me is Mariyln Monroe. She is the fantasy of every man who has lived on this planet.

She was witty, sexy, sarcastic, true and absolutely blunt on what she said, and about how she felt.

Like the above quote,

Life is never a bed of roses, there is always something that might not go the way you like.
There might be people better than you
there might be people, who have or get what you always wanted
There might be times, when you might hate yourself
 But, smile, keep your head high even if you feel like crying, life is beautiful. There are many things in the past, in the present and in the future to smile about, think of all those lovely moments and smile.

XOXO MM, You are one awesome woman

3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 2 - Love

I always wanted to fall in love, and get married.

i am a total Mills & Boon fan. I have grown up reading tall, dark, handsome, rich men saving the damsel in distress and falling head over heels in love with her and sweeping her off her feet.

When the idea of me marrying someone came up, I was 22. My idea of a perfect husband was, drop-dead gorgeous man, with a lovely mane to die for, charming eyes, broad shoulders.
At that age, I was dumb, for me the family, guy's education, his nature didn't matter.

Then I grew up.

I realized, life is not about looks, there is much more to a relationship.

There are fights, bad long loud arguments
There is patching up.
There are lame inside jokes, even lamer names for each other.
There are those never -ending talks
there is sharing pizza's last piece, or keeping the best piece for them
There is encouraging each other to pursue their own interests

In the end, looks were the least important in the list, what topped was communication skills, a man who can make me laugh, is the man I fell in love with

APED: I am Sorry

It is that hour of the day, when the church bells ring
The sun burns the tar road, where children play
In this crowd, I search one face
There she is, trying to learn and cope with her white cane
Its been two years, to that incident
All I want to do is hold her small soft hands, and say sorry
But, what I do is stand here, looking at her from far
For I am a coward to admit, that I robbed the eyes of the woman I last kissed Goodbye
