11th Second-Birth Day: Gratitude Day

Today is my 11th "birth"day. If I am here, smiling and happy then all the credits go to the people who have supported me for so many years. I am blessed to have a beautiful family and amazing friends.
But, apart of my family and friends, there are a few special people whom I am eternally grateful for, they played a very integral part of who I am; and today on my "second" birth day, I want show my gratitude to them

Dr. Anil Bhatia 
I wouldn't be me, if it wasn't for you. You are, and forever will be my favorite doctor for life. I think its your optimism that rubbed on me and made me confident enough to show my "scary" looking hand and proudly walk in that hospital when others were covering their injuries.
Thank you for everything that you have done for me. You gave me my life back

Subhasis Sir & Prashant Sir
You hired me when I was nothing. I lacked skills, I lacked on experience and still I was hired. I have learnt all what I use on the technical front from you guys. I have learnt 80% of my MS Excel from you.
Thank you for encouraging me to do my Masters and help me complete it too.

Mini Manakame
She was my manager a few months back. She was a mentor to me. An amazing leader for her team. She had this regal air to her. The way she walked, she way she talked. I wanted to be just like her. I wanted to imitate everything she did. I wanted to learn so much from her in that small 10 month stint. She never got angry, always calm. At her position, she really didn't need to accompany us minions for lunch or actually come out of her office and say that she won't join. At that Level, she had no need to ask us minions about our lives, but she cared, she was compassionate towards her team, she dealt every situation so beautifully, be it a team achievement or a team issue, she just knew what to do.  She gave credits to a good job done. she taught me perfection. she taught me little things. she was there to guide me, very supportive every time. 
If I ever I have a team, I want to be like her. I am and will be in awe of her all my life

11 years, and some things just remain with you for life. Now, when I say what happened then, I feel like I am narrating a story. It is a story though, the longest, most influencing chapter in the story of my life.

CTT: Happy Homecoming

I dropped you there, and saw your car go
I stood there, and looked as far as my eyes could follow
I start counting the days, hours minutes until I see you again from that moment on
I came back to an empty house, and sat on the couch until dawn
Your fragrance lingers everywhere
I may not admit, but so much I care
I feel your touch and miss your smile already
To stay alone, not yet, I am not ready
You are away just for a few days and it feels like ages
If my life were a book, you are its most beautiful pages
I lay alone in that cold bed
All I can think is you, in my head
I scroll down my phone and smile at your pictures
Those videos and all that cuteness
I couldn't sleep a wink, you are coming tonight that I know
I realized I love you so much, much more than I care to show

CTT: Teen Mundi Bhoot (Three Headed Witch)

This weekend, we were driving back from somewhere are started talking about ghosts and ghouls, then the topic diverted to beliefs and rumors about ghosts.

Then I told Awin about the "Teen Mundi Bhoot" (The headed witch) rumor that was spreading in our school when I was about 7. (which I am sure many of my friends would remember)

The rumor was that the Teen Mundi Bhoot is a lady with long hair, bloody teeth and red eyes, wears a white gown and floats, knocks the door and eats up all the little kids at home. My brother, then was 3 and I started weeping my heart out saying "I need to go home and save my brother" 

I remember the teachers had to call my parents to pacify me and ensure that my little brother is safe.

Today, when I look back, I feel, even now if there is a "Teen Mundi Bhoot" lurking around to eat my brother, I would still weep and try to save him. (while I was saying this, my eyes got moist, my voice started to quiver)

First time ever, I saw the "Awww" look in my husband's eyes.
