Just a saying ?!!

I came across this one by chance.....

For all your days prepare,
and treat them ever alike.
When you are the anvil, bear;
When you are the hammer, strike.

why so?

why is it that i have around 10 things in my mind about which i want to write....but i cant.

today i know what a "writer's block" is :)

So why not cite an intresting anecdote about writer's black itself.

Once a famous writer(his name escapes me) was full of ideas for his new novel. He had this habit of writing something before lunch.. Now this perticular day he sat with his typewriter in front of him. He wanted to start his novel....but couldnt think of a begining. An hour passed. Then two. Now he was furious with himself. He didnt want to leave without starting the novel. So he wrote. He wrote "The " and left for lunch.. It is said that the novel was indeed a success, and a huge one at that.

So much for the writer's block.

Rang Birangi

This is an old pic.. Its the rangoli that i made last Dipawali.
Diwali(Deepawali) is the festival of light, but the best part for me is not the crackers but the colourful rangoli that i make. I am usually very excited for that.. If you see carefully, u can see that the diya has been coloured too..

Mixed emotions

A friend of mine is getting married today. And i didnt even know it till this morning.
And i am angry....angry bcoz i didnt know.

We have a party tonight. My first since coming to Gurgaon.... The dress code is red and black for gals. Funny combo, I dont like it.

My thoughts have gone haywire, today i have difficulties in keeping my chain of thoughts in line.
I have an unfamilier tune ringing in my head.

And i dont like it much.

I tried to paint a picture ...........

A picture through the clouds for you....
Green Your smiling eyes
Red 'Cause I made you cry
Grey These rainy skies
Tomorrow will be

Blue Stay love
Stay tonight
These rainy skies
Tomorrow will be blue

From the song 'Blue' - Zucchero

New place new people

Its been a long time since my last blog....
A lot has happened in between.. M in a new place(Gurgaon), with new people(at work).. and whole new way of living.....
Everybody asks me the difference between Pune and Gurgaon, but the answers i give them are not honest. Not because i am lying or something.. Its just that I have never thought of comparing the two. That may be due to the fact that this is something I have always dreamt of....I have lived this way so many times in my imagination that I dont feel its a change at all....

Theme for a dream

This morning I had the strangest of dreams(waise dreams are always strange)

I saw I was on an adventure trip or something. And we were in this jungle of sorts in assam with some terrorist kind of people around. we had to escape from them somehow. It was all very dark and there were huts with lamps. I met a guy and started talking. He told me that he had just completed a 3 year course in Jumanji. It was all very frightening and at the same time very exciting too.

My first blog

(My first blog ever....plz be kind and patient.)

"Crawl into my Parlour" The title is inspired by a Discovery program i used to watch as a kid. It was about intresting and colourful insects..I used to love it. It was a long long time ago, but the name stayed in my memory somehow. It always reminds me of those good old childhood days when I used to spend afternoons watching beautiful leaves and keeping count of butterfly cocoons under them. Thats what I call bliss..
