Wine & Bottle...

She was out for shopping… Last 2 months were the busiest days of her life. "Buying a brand  new home is not as simple as they quote in home loan advertise. Probably buying a house is easier but to make it a sweet home is definitely not easy” , she thought. She was on top of  the world, when she, with her husband received the keys of their own house.

Most of her friends advised her to give a contract to interior decorators, who can make best use of each and every corner of the house, and still make it beautiful. Her husband was also insisting the same as he knew that, it will be difficult for him to take out the time from office to help her in decorating their house. But she did not listen to anyone. She wanted her house to become her dream home. The dream she and her husband saw together. She did not want to borrow the dreams of some professional decorator.

Though the house they bought was not too big but was definitely sufficient for their family. She wanted to decorate her house in such a way that it will reflect the personality of each and every one in her family. She bought a wall clock with gears for her machine loving husband. She bought a curtain which can hold the collection of CDs for her father in law. She bought crockery rack just to display the crockery collected by her mother in law since her entry to the new family. Each and every corner of her house was showing the versatile human natures living happily, under the same roof.

Today, while wandering around the mall, she was thinking about her new home. About the gifts, about delicious food, the overall arrangements for the function, about their relatives and friends who came with best wishes for her house warming ceremony.

She was feeling blessed. Her home was the perfect canvas for her picture perfect family.

After all those tiring days, today she was relaxing at coffee shop in the mall. It was the time when she wanted to celebrate her happiness with her family. She closed her eyes to imagine those wonderful moments in her new home. 'She, her husband, her father in law and mother in law. Sitting on the brand new sofa in their drawing room. Wine bottle, on the center table with glass top. Chatting and recollecting those beautiful moments that they spent together throughout these years. The wine glasses, getting filled and refilled, when connection with world outside their door is lost. The moments of satisfaction, happiness, smiles were replacing the wine in bottle and glasses...'

She thought, she will keep those wine bottle and glasses in her home for ever... Just like a wine, this precious moment will get older and tastier with time...

पाऊस आणि तू…

पाऊस आणि तू… 

जमिनीवर पडणाऱ्या पावसाच्या प्रत्येक थेंबात तू आहेस …
गारवा, आनंद आणि समाधान पसरवणारा …

पाऊस येतो तो तुझी आठवण घेऊनच…

आणि आत्ताही तो आलाय
तुझी आठवण घेऊन…

नभ दाटुनी आले…
तुझ्या आठवणीने मन भरून आले…

मातीचा सुगंध जणू तुझ्या कुशीत झोपून अनुभवावा…
पावसाचे थेंब तुझ्या गालावर पडावा आणि तुझ्या केसांनी तो अलगद पुसावा…

पावसात भिजताना तुझा हात हातात असावा…
दोघांच्या ओंजळीत आठवणींचा पाऊस साठवावा…
ओंजळीतल्या पाण्यात आपण एकमेकांना पाहावे…
जणू सुंदर स्वप्नांचे चित्र उलगडत जावे…

गडगडणाऱ्या नभात थंड वारे वाहतात…
कृष्ण सावल्या आकाशी तुझ्या आठवणींचे थवे उडतात…
शब्दांच्या कविता, कवितांचे सूर असेच जुळत रहावेत…
आपल्या  आयुष्याच्या गाण्याचे सप्तरंगी इंद्रधनू व्हावे…

100 Happy Days...

Few days back I was reading a blog “Kay Vatel te” written by Mr. Mahendra Kulkarni (Popularly known as Mahendra Kaka). The blog had a post with similar title. Out of curiosity I started reading the post and got the subject for my this brand new post.

Each day of our life gives us something good or bad. But then it’s up to us what to remember and what to forget and move on. As an ideal answer every one of us will say, “We should remember the good things that happens to us” but at the same time we all know that we simply creep for the bad things that happens to us.

What I believe is each day brings something good for us, and it’s just a matter of realizing the good part. Mahendra Kaka’s blog post inspired me to find out such a good thing in each day, anything which brings smile on our face; anything which makes us happy; anything which gives us satisfaction.

So now for next 100 Days I will try to note down the moments which gave me “Feeling Happy :)” status. Let’s see how far I can go…

The Magical Balloon...

Today morning, I was waiting for my bus, when I saw small kid with his mother. Mother was carrying a heavy load of utensils to sell. The small footsteps of kid were unable to catch up the walking speed of his mothers. There were lot of other attractions on road; pulling him back. 

At one corner of road, there was a balloon seller standing, blowing the colorful balloons, one by one. Balloons catch hold the attention of kid making him stood there only.Twinkling eyes of kid were very innocent and were busy in watching the magic of balloon getting bigger and bigger.The kid was staring at the balloon, and the balloon seller at the kid. 

I don't know what the balloon seller was thinking of; but suddenly he took the bright red color balloon, and handed it to the kid. The kid’s eyes got filled up with the happiness and were shining like small diamonds. Kids mother, still unaware of all this, turned back for her kid and found her son, with a red balloon in his hands, big smile on his face and the eyes shining with the happiness. Mother came to her kid and told her son to return the balloon as she did not have any money to buy it.

The kid saw the balloon again and raised his hand to return the balloon when balloon seller told kid's mother that it’s a gift to her son. Kid's eyes blinked with happiness again; he was carrying the magic in his hands. The balloon seller was happy with the kid’s smile and was happier for being a reason of that smile.

The Red balloon… Reason for making everyone’s morning Good… rather Best :) :)

Women's Day...!!!

It was an evening before women's day when we were planning for the day. My office was celebrating women’s week and arranged everything specially for female employees. Celebration for a week included Women health care, makeover parlors, Book exhibition, many surprise games n gifts. Whole environment was full of women power...

On women’s day i.e. on 8th March, office announced traditional day for female employees and this was the event we were planning for. Our discussions were endless and finally we settled down on a traditional punjabi salwar suite.

Next day we reached office in our best dress. At office gate we saw security ladies were checking our bags. Today they were not just checking the bags but were giving something to each female employee. It was a woman’s day special greeting card; Women empower badge, red rose and a big smile. Company was appreciating our strength, our efforts, our dedication, our wisdom, our spirit, our womanhood…

All of us were happy, it is really a nice feeling to know that; someone notices, appreciates you.

Every girl entering in our ODC was carrying a big smile on her face. Everyone around was bz with planning and celebrating the women's day. Yes...!!! boys were also celebrating the day by teasing all the girls :) :)

On one of my friend Pooja’s desk, I saw a bunch of red roses. The bunch of roses turned my teasing mood ON and I started teasing her with my questions and comments. How could I miss such a golden opportunity of fun? The day at office came to an end with lots of beautiful memories.

While returning back, I was having chat with some other friend of mine, when I told her about Pooja's bunch of red roses. I was telling her how I enjoyed the teasing, when my friend told me that, the bunch of red roses was not the one that Pooja received; but those roses were for the security ladies staff. Pooja gave a rose to every lady in the security crew. It was surprising... When we were busy in planning our DAY, she was thinking of a DAY for each and every women around her. She wanted the pure smile on their faces. She was not only appreciating the security lady's efforts but also celebrating their courage, strength, willingness for betterment.    

My friend with a bunch of red roses “Pooja Kulkarni”  We are proud of u Pooja… Actually it’s U who truly celebrated the Women’s Day…

Celebrating colors


Shows depth of sea… wide range of sky…
Shows beauty of a butterfly…
Hide and unhide the emotions…
Brings smile on faces …
Rainbow in the sky… celebrates these colors …
Holi brings rainbow on earth… 
To make our lives livelier… with the wonderful colors…
