Daily Prompts: Heart to heart with my mother

15 Dec

Write a letter to your mom. Tell her something you’ve always wanted to say, but haven’t been able to.

Dear Maa,
As we’re quite close, writing to you was never craved for. I don’t think I was ever inadequate in telling you how much you mean to me, and nor do I think I ever told you enough. Once again, you mean the world to me mumma.

If I had to tell you one thing, I always wanted to but never could then that would be about me. About my personality, About the way I have transformed from my experiences and about the way I’ve become the the kind of girl you never planned on raising. No, I don’t do drugs or drink or smoke or slut around. I am not anorexic or bulimic and I’m not in any kind of trouble. I’m just a normal girl who is a loved daughter, sister and friend. It’s just that I’m not developing my personality as per the norms you had set for me. For example, I’m not as religious as you’re ’cause I believe in trying to be a good person more than trying to pray more. That doesn’t mean I don’t believe in God. I thank him everyday (afterall he gave me my mother 😉 ). But maa,  I can’t be as religious as you. Sorry to disappoint you!

Another likely example is the way I look at life. I have seen the way you’ve lived and I don’t want to have the same regrets as you (I want to make my own mistakes 😉 ). So, I want to travel a lot, read and do all I love even if that means having some bad experiences on the way. I can’t live as per the rules of society, I want to make my own! Yes, I know it sounds rebellious. But whatever I do, I want you to be along and have faith in me!

And lastly, the question of marriage! I am well aware you want to pick up a guy for me  (which mother doesn’t 😉 ) and want me to think he’s the one and get married. But that is not so convincing. I don’t oppose you picking up someone for me, but I seriously can’t think of spending my life with him unless I fall in love with him. I am not very choosy or demanding, so that can not be tough. His thoughts and psychology on life has to resonate with me, that’s all I want! We never get into the enough comfort zone to explain you all this. But hope you’d understand.

Mom, your daughter is and would always be you daughter but she’s also a whole different person now and she wants to have some liberty being that. I’m sure you must be knowing almost everything I’ve written above, only that I can’t tell these to your face or probably never could. Hope you’re not saddened that I’m not your dream daughter!

Love you more than anyone or anything else,
Your daughter

Daily Prompts: The High Five

12 Dec

A writer once said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” If this is true, which five people would you like to spend your time with?

 

1. Oprah Winfrey: If only I could meet her once let alone spending most my time with.

2. Paulo Coelho: If he could write something as simply effective and beautiful as The Alchemist, he deserves all my attention.

3. My mother: She’s my lifeline and definitely the most adorable person I have ever met.

4. Robin Scherbatsky: She’s strong, fun, responsible, professional and everything I’d love to get a hint of in my personality.

5. Myself: To understand myself more is my to-do list for near future.

You, me and love

25 Jul

As i was wandering through different folders in my laptop, i found the following. It’s a poem i wrote almost 11 months ago, when i was head over heels in love with this guy. Not even close to someone who can write a poem, but i still scribble. Reading this poem once again, everything came flooding back. The togetherness, the faith, the moments, the kisses, the hugs, the yearning, the naughty games, the suppressed laughters, the hang outs, the nick names, the ususals, the unususals, the promises, the dreams and then the SHATTERING! Anyways, i wanted to share this one with my fellow bloggers, the only society i have for now. Therefore, here it is:

You, me & People

People tell me that you are not as I think

They say you are all black with just a shell of pink

According to them I should not trust you as I do

Coz you are not what you are supposed to

They keep telling your love for me is a trap

It’s ugly inside and what I see is just a wrap

They want me to believe you are different behind my back

And when it will be exposed, my heart would crack

In short they want me to get away from you

Or else one day truth will cut right through

Me? Oh! I never reply to what they say

Not that I don’t have words that weigh

Just that it does not matter to me

I am happy with what I see

It’s my love and I am to decide

And your love is where I confide

I do not deny I may get hurt

But what’s the point enjoying rain fearing dirt

I am myself with you, nothing to pretend

You bring me peace, in my soul you blend

Let them say for its theirs to find wrong

For me your love is a true song

If u hurt me ever it can be taken

But without a reason my faith can’t be shaken

Don’t you feel pressure to prove your love

Be yourself that’s the most I love.

Big Lessons in Tiny Pleasures: Part 1

8 Jul

Big Lessons in Tiny Pleasures: Part 1

I am a Tea drinker, Tea Admirer, Tea Lover, Tea Connoisseur & Tea Fanatic.
I want tea to wake me up in the morning. I need tea as a break from studies. I need tea to share a soulful conversation with someone. I need tea with snacks. I just NEED tea.
So, Its 3.00 am. Am still not very awake and freshening mouthwash couldn’t wake me up either. What could? A cup of Tea, just the way I like it!
As it boiled and pigmented, I observed it and realised it was trying to say something. I listened and now am sharing with you.

1. Every success is achieved in steps.
As I start making tea with just plain water, I realise a good cup of tea should be made by boiling tea to its most then adding milk and then a flavour of your choice. It doesn’t work the other way around. You can’t just add all the ingredients, bring it to a boil and pour. That sure will make a tea but not THE TEA.

2.Have patience.
If you raise the flame and bring it to a boil in like 1min and get it over with, believe me it will BE OVER. Let it boil on the lowest flame for some time. Only then will you get the aroma and the flavour.

3. Toil & Boil Hard.
A good cup of tea is the one that has boiled hard enough to fill the kitchen with its aroma.
So, if you want that perfect cup, then let it boil.

4. Add Your touch.
Whatever you do, do it your way. I add a pinch of cinnamon. My Dad replaces jaggery for sugar. Mom prefers gingered tea. Granny loves it minty. And My uncle wants it with lemon sans milk. So, If you want it to be called yours, make it yours.

5. Practice is inevitable.
I remember having made and spoiled tea innumerable times before I could actually make it with my eyes closed. So if you want to be good at something, Practise it!

Aaah! Its ready. My elixir. My milk tea with a hint of cinnamon. Just the way I like it!
P.S.: The picture is not mine. I Image googled milk tea. 😛

Get Up & Get Going

7 Jul

You never thought this blog would be all about running. Huh?
Running could not improve my situation, it could just give me enough strength.
So, what would actually improve this Impending doom?
My master’s Entrance exams! Which would be conducted again in January next year. And this time I am to win. I have been saying this last sentence to myself since April (when officially all the seats of past year got filled up).
I also started preparing. At least tried to. But i never felt that heat.
But Now things are different. Its July. And I guess this is the last call.If I lose any more time, i lose it all. I have to get up and get going. So, I thought I’ll make a list of reasons I am doing this for, which follows:

1. For My confidence: I have to regain the fact that the big guy up there makes nothing NO-GOOD. I have to trust myself again with the fact that I can do it. Because I know I can.
2. For My Family: My family specially my mom has been much more supportive than I could ever think they would be on this one. I owe it to them. They taught me to never stay down. And I will dedicate this to them. Not only the reward but the journey.
3. For A better future: I know I deserve better & I will see how much. I want to see the limits.
4. As an answer: With all the falls, come the bags of pity and taunts and revelations. On the way downhill, I met all of em. My so- called friends. My partners. And the ones who were just seeking a chance to paint me black. I want to get up and say back “I won’t be over so easy”.
5. As a part of my duty: I have a really noble and responsible profession at hand. And I have to be honest to it. I have to be the best I can coz it affects not only myself, but a whole lot others.

To Beginning stronger everyday! To Hope! To faith!

P.S.: I did run today. 🙂

Aloha

5 Jul

So this is officially the worst year of my life yet!
To start with i could not make it to my master’s admissions for which i had been working for an year.
Then i encountered a break up of a 16 months old relationship.
Then i lost my job.
I woke to the realisation that i have grown far out of the allowed Body Mass Index.
And to make it worse i discovered that the relationship i was in was never true. He cheated all along.
And its only been half the year!
But then this morning i thought, it could have been worse!
I could have had a physical accident!
I could have discovered I have terminal cancer!
My parents could have stopped loving me!
And I might have lost the ability to regenerate myself!
So, I got up to make it better with every passing day, every passing moment.
AND THIS BLOG IS MY DIARY OF IT!
