Alas!

I wrote a poem after almost 3 months..
I must admit though that every poem I have written has come at a time when life didn't seem hopeful...when some answers didn't come easily and when I have felt the winds of adversity blowing hard against myself.
I guess sufferings brings out the best in every poet ;)
(And by a strange coincidence....I wrote this poem too, like other poems, when my exams are just about to start!!!)

Right now though, all I want to say is this....

"I don't want the world to see me'Cause I don't think that they'd understandWhen everything's made to be brokenI just want You to know who I am"

The Ice Cream Prayer
-- Author Unknown


Last week I took my children to a restaurant. My six-year-old son asked if he could say grace.

As we bowed our heads he said, "God is good. God is great. Thank you for the food, and I would even thank you more if Mom gets us ice cream for dessert. And Liberty and justice for all! Amen!"

Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby I heard a woman remark, "That's what's wrong with this country. Kids today don't even know how to pray. Asking God for ice cream! Why, I never!"

Hearing this, my son burst into tears and asked me, "Did I do it wrong? Is God mad at me?"

As I held him and assured him that he had done a terrific job and God was certainly not mad at him, an …

A vain post on a sleepless night

Its 3.00 in the morning and I ain't sleepy at all. So I got out of the bed watched T.V for a while and here I am sitting in front of my laptop typing this post for no particular reason.

I Had a great day today and then as I was just about to hit the bed and pray before I was off to sleep, something ruined my mood! And there, I was tossing and turning in my bed trying to sleep!My my mind couldn't take the onslaught of thoughts and I finally gave up trying to sleep.

These days something has been really bothering me.I've suddenly started to get this fear of being lonely! I cant stay at home alone.I just need to (NEED TO) get out of my house and meet people!! Its strange, how, once a shy girl wanting to be left alone now desperately wants to be around people.I mean, social networking is fine but meeting people face to face and talking to them in person feels way different from meeting people online!

And I miss being around people....my friends....miss talking to someone who would…

Why did the chicken cross the road??

Email forwards are one thing I like to skip when I read my mails, they are quite repetitive and boring (and lengthy!!).But once in a whileI do find a few mails that are worth reading.
This e-mail forward I received from my friend is really funny...check it out!Some of the answers are a lil boring but some are really funny.


The question asked was ..

Why did the chicken cross the road?

And following are the answers given by the people who were asked this question.


KINDERGARTEN BOY
To get to the other side.

PLATO
For the greater good.

ARISTOTLE
It is the nature of chickens to cross roads.

KARL MARX
It was a historical inevitability.

TIMOTHY LEARY
Because that's the only trip the establishment would let it take.

CAPTAIN JAMES T. KIRK
To boldly go where no chicken has gone before.

HIPPOCRATES
Because of an excess of phlegm in its pancreas.

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross roads without having their motives called into question.

If it were not for Him...who knows where I would be today..

These days I barely login to my orkut account.I mostly check my scraps when my friend(/sister) Sungeeta Jain writes to me. Yesterday, as I was posting a reply in her scrapbook, I saw a really depressed picture in the profile of one of her friends. Its so hard to see snaps and profiles like these.With so much pain and so much hurt...

I had been there too.For almost six years I couldn't find an escape route out of the depression.I still remember those days with display pictures of an emo, a girl hurting herself,the suicide notes,the frustrated status updates.

It hurts a lot to see people in so much of pain- your own relatives, your own friends sometimes...
And if that is not enough, every time you go out on streets, you see the agony and suffering in the eyes of the poor. No food to eat, having to beg for a living, no clothes to wear, living in tents that might be uprooted at the next moment, no shelter from the rain...the list is endless.

What's even worse, is to see people who wor…

Being single...being happy!

Can you ever forget your first date?? ever? (And that too when it was such a nightmare??..lol)


Three years ago, I had such an experience of going out with a guy ( who was totally out of my league :P) I would not like to disclose here as to how we met and how it all started.Its a long story and an unbelievable one too. Yes, almost all my friends gasped at my daring act! I had asked him out ...LOL.Considering how shy I am, it was certainly not something I could do but then we all know how teens behave when they 'fall in "love"'.

Anyways...the date ended on a sad note.I never phoned the guy again (except for the last message I sent him that night) and neither did he call.So it was over at the first date itself!
But I had made up in my mind that I wouldn't have bitter feelings for him and that the next time we happen to bump into one another some day I'd be courteous enough to smile.

This Sunday evening as I was going for my classes, I saw the guy for the first time…

A letter to God....

Dear God,

All my life, I've been chasing people and clinging to them, hoping that they'd stay back for me.I've cared for people and it felt like they never cared for me enough.Maybe its just coz I expect too much out of people and I should stop it now.

Most of the years of my life were spent brooding about people who never reciprocated my feelings.Some of them didn't even know that I exist!! And yet I had been foolishly running behind them while they walked on, hoping to get noticed, hoping that for once they'd turn behind and see me.That for once they'll hear me.

But they didn't.

And I, after running for miles behind them, ran out of breath and gave up.All I could see then was them walking away.

Why?Why did they never turn behind?Why did I waste my time over people who weren't meant for me?

Today, I ask you to take away every person from me, who isn't right for me.Who knowingly/unknowingly hurts me.Help me to forgive them and forget them.Stop me from r…
