"..will wait for you, oh my dear.."

Prologue: I wrote this poem initially, before writing 'you-can't-just-walk-away'. For some reason, I decided not to publish it as it is. So modified the whole subject and changed most of the lines.. Anyway I have finally made up my mind to publish this... I know that it's a very strong subject and I never meant to hurt anyone. I know that I can never feel the real feelings of a woman expressed in this poem. I just want to say - Yes, life is unfair at times, but most of the times it does gives us back what we have lost... With that positive note, now you can proceed...  


It was that day when I came to know,
my face turned pink with some unusual glow…
The day that made me feel so special,
the nature around started some lovely carol…

Yes, I was carrying someone within me,
it didn’t really matter it was he or she…
All I knew that our lives will change,
maybe it already has, which isn’t strange…

I was eagerly waiting for the arrival ,
as we prepared to welcome our angel…
I…

*flashback* We were all waiting for Riya in ‘7 bees’ that night with cake and gifts. I got a message saying she will be joining us in 5 min. When she had not turned up even in another 15 min, I walked out and dialed her number to check what was taking her so long. She wasn’t picking up the call so I tried again.  I shouldn’t have…
Riya was on her way, on her scooty when I called her. She stopped near the signal to pick my call. “Hey sam, I’m so sorry I am almost there.. give me 2 minutes… …”. were her last words, before she screamed out of pain. For a moment, I didn’t know what happened on the other side of the call. I just waited there shouting her name repeatedly. But there wasn’t any response. Sensing there was some trouble, I ran inside and explained others. Everyone’s party mood had worn-off and we rushed outside the restaurant. Hoping against the hope we all went in direction of Riya’s home, withou…

The Secret, in her diary... (part 1)

Dec 23rd 1998. A day that marked the sad demise of our dear friend Riya, which was also her birthday. We were all heading for her birthday party which she had planned in a restaurant, ‘7 bees’ - a place we used to hang-out often…  I still have her message in my cell…  “hey there, yo coming right? I will kill u If don’t turn up ok…  c you there @ 9 :)” … huh… (wiping the tiny tears)… She was always this fun loving, energetic and charming girl in our group… To be honest she was the one who kept us together… Someone rightly said - you know the real value of a person, when the person is not around. But god, what has she ever done something wrong in her life, that you took her away so early!? She was the one who made us believe that in every dark side of the life, there is always a bright side just around the corner… Now, can anyone explain where …

I love you ya poornima!!

Disclaimer: Now that I have your attention after reading the title, let me clarify myself - "I haven't gone insane and I am not in love with anyone!". Read the full post before jumping into conclusion. 
It has been almost a year since I changed my mobile number. I got this new scheme of corporate plan which had two sim's entitled with each other. The call rates/msg's among the two were free. I thought it was better and will help in reducing the call rates that had gone too high since I was engaged. Those longest hours of late night talks, tons of msg's everyday were draining the currency of even 500+, within a week! However, like in every other case of post-marriage, much to our cell phone's delight - we almost stopped using them too often ;) 
Since the day I started using the new number, I started getting anonymous calls, msg's asking for a girl/women named Poornima. I am sure by now you might have got an idea about the title & this post...

Yet another new year!!

Image
Well, well, well… Yet another new year is here! :) Phew! Time never gets tired of running! 
It was a good year as I look back, some defining moments happened in life. I am sure, it will be remembered throughout my life. Like many, I had lots of resolutions at the beginning of 2011, none of them (as usual) were achieved to the fullest ;) :P … So this time, I will not have any particular resolution.  Instead will have some checkpoints which I will be reviewing/assessing on a weekly/monthly basis.

2011 was also a very good year for my blog, even though I couldn’t reach the milestone of 50 posts ;). In short I would say – 2011 was the year of ‘New’ beginning. 2011 marked a milestone in my personal life. I entered 2011 being engaged and got married to my love on 25th April. This would be the highlight of 2011 on a personal note. Career wise, I started with a new company and I am still working with them. I could’ve done better but I think have done fairly enough to get a foot-hold in the n…
