Gilsbert,

Please explain why you were …

26/11- (un)just another day..

People world over are reminded of eternal love when they think of the Taj, except some who still carry the torch of fraternal hate, burning their own houses in the process. The hotel burned like hot hell, this very same day, last year. Guess, the Taj hotel folks would have done some soul searching to rethink their operating mantra on being hospitable. I am sure sending their guests to hospitals didnt exactly figure in their scheme for hospitality.

Find the above lines sarcastic? Well..what else can one feel,watching the very guy, who killed so many compatriots of mine, in cold blood, with the entire world for witness, staying hale and healthy (36 Crores have been spent so far to keep him alive, as per TOI estimate) just a few kms away from where i am, in the very same city, where he let loose the carnage. I fail to understand what more proof our judiciary is looking for. May be they are searching for words to frame a "sentence" for him??!! This guy is not even a soldier bu…

As a kid i had been warned
never to look at lightning directly..
But couldnt help it
when you showed up
Like a multicolored lightning..
burning your picture on my mind..
and blinding me with love.....

And they say
Lightning never strikes twice at the same place
Maybe my heart was an exception to that..
you were my sweetest dream
which stayed on with my eyes
even while open....

Like a mid afternoon breeze
you came into my life..
Life never looked rosier

You had the most talkative eyes..
They more than compensated for
your silence
by making a mess of mine

The story of the trees

I complete 100 posts for this year :D :D and have always wanted to post some parable sort of a story. So here goes :)

Makkass..this is not my story. nejamavay ithu oru parable thaan. I just did the translation :)



Once there were 3 friendly trees in a dense forest. They were sharing their dreams amongst themselves as to what is their life time ambition.
The first tree said, "I want to be a treasure chest. I want to safeguard Gold, diamond and all the treasures of the world".
Second one said, " I want to be the ship of the king of kings, the all conquering emperor".
Last one had different idea. "I want to grow so tall, closer to heaven, that the Lord Himself should rest on me"

Soon, some lumberjacks came that side. They saw the first one and felt that it was too strong and thick and decided to make a treasure chest out of it. They saw the second one and felt since it had grown straight and tall, it would deem fit to build a ship out of it and decided to give it…

Thank you :)

" My dear Bloggers : Thanks a lot for reading my 20 page story patiently and also providing your positive feedback. Those who have not read my first story, I would suggest to read that as well "Kanavu meipada Vendum" (Dream come true - a love story) in this same blog in August edition.

Trust me your comments and wishes motivates me a lot, many have wished me to write a book, I will for sure write one, but I am going to continue writing short stories and upload it in my blog. Yes, I am going to open my blog next month end. Gils will share my blog link with you all as soon I have it released. So I am sure you all will like it and will peep in there as well.

I am just realizing the fun about writing stories, not only it makes me feel good, it also inspires others …

But sila vishyams kampalsary..like the rounds on cycle before my dad leaves for office. Everyday, before leaving for office on his Hercules cycle, he had to take me around our street for some rounds. Then only then the relieving order will be released from my checkpost :)

Whenever my dad goes for shopping for groceries, he used to carry me. And the shopkeeper was someone whom we had known for decades it seems, the owner being a very good friend of my grandpa. Whenever i goto that shop the owner used to give dry fruits in a pottalam and on the way back me and my dad both used to feed the pigeons. Needless to say i was a pampered child :) My dad never allowed me to walk and always carried me wherever he took …

That was too much for me, first of all I didn’t know who Sheetal is and over that blaming me for murder, I was hopping mad. Suddenly it struck me that Sheetal is one of the characters in my short love story where sheetal would die due to a dreadful disease. As I recollected the story and was about to confirm it with her, she showed me bunch of papers which she was hiding behind and said “why you didn’t tell in last 7 years that you are story writer” she asked. “Sorry great story writer” she adjusted.

“haha .. you scared me Sindhu” suddenly a girl’s name, with eyes red , that too murder..Ho man you made me really go wild for some time” I shared..
"Yes I purposely did it, wanted to make you understand how I felt.."
“What feel” I asked
“Why would you want to kill sheetal in the story, it was such a wonderful romantic story and why did you have to kill her, I was weeping and couldn’t digest that” she said.
I realized that Sindhu was cleaning the house as we had to shift the house so…

Swaram, the meejical lady. If at anytime you feel down or depressed, just read thru her posts...you will feel doubly cheered up in no time and would be singing TINGU TINGU TINGU :D She has a very innocent and direct way of writing which takes the straight shortcut route to your heart. No wonder she has so many subscribers to her blog :) A very pleasant person.

Divyapriya- the new megaserial maharani of blogsphere :) she is heartless when it comes to teasing people with her suspense twist filled mega serial posts which leaves you ranting and raving till you get the next part. Wonderful writer, who is not very far from getting published.

Discover your Palace -4

We both spoke for more than an hour and went to sleep I woke up late in the morning. I decided to have Breakfast; I liked the puttu with banana. Almost all the dishes have banana or coconut involved, I like the taste though. Somehow I started liking the place and the mallu people. I went out for a stroll into all the small lanes around the place. There were some beautiful houses and could see only oldies enjoy their life sitting in an easy chair outside the house in the lawn. Very few houses had children. All I know was Mallus don’t stay at their home town, they go outside Kerala to make a living and build good houses and settle in the native after retirement. There is a saying Mallus are found even in Mars.

I sneaked through the slope areas and saw few older kids playing cricket in a small ground in the midst of coconut trees. I was watching them play and got tempted to ask them if I could join. Endhaa Tamilaaa ? One boy asked. I said “yes” ‘Ok join that team most of them are tamilia…

Sindhu joined a training center as a trainer for a minimal pay after our first company was closed. It was in the same year 2000, just couple of months after my first company was closed , I was able to get a job in a much better company – “Micro Media”,. Vaishali madam did not stop with the proverb but also gave a contact; Seshank who was my senior, probably another fan of her like me . She mentioned that I should go to meet him, he works in a big company in Bangalore and also he is very close to CEO. Lady luck was in my favor .
He was a product manager in the company. Seshank did his MBA in IIM , a very shrewd but amicable fellow, he seemed to be very close with the CEO for his Business strategies.

Seshank took me to his cabin where he explained the reason why they have recruited me.
“Amit, the plan is to diversify the business, he explained saying that software product development will be the niche business of the company going forward.

“How about School Information System” I suggest…

Mind awakening

Sleep eluded me that night, I couldn’t inform my parents either as it was their wedding anniversary and I didn’t want to spoil the mood on this day.
I remembered a Sardarji joke

Sardar 1 : Hey today is my parents wedding anniversary
Sardar 2: Hi Great – that’s fantastic, BTW is it your mother’s or father’s wedding day ?
Sardar 1 :- hmmmmmm – I think is both
Sardar 2 – Wowwwww!! What a coincidence yaar !!!!

Though I was laughing thinking about the joke, my sober mood was still on. More than the loss of job, the inability to meet Sindhu made me worry more. I was in the balcony after my dinner. The moon was shining like a snow ball on a blue blanket, stunningly bright as full moon was nearing, the clock struck 12 in the midnight.

It was then He asked me "what if God comes to you and gives you the liberty to ask for 3 boons".

"First of all I don’t believe in God secondly I am in not in a good mood for the game" I replied.

"BTW why always 3 why not 2, 1…
