People classified by website responses

When I started the website, it was on a whim…..the child made it, linked it to FB, G plus, Twitter etc etc. 

What 3 years have taught me about people :

There are the

  • Generous appreciators who try to find something good to say about a blog
  • Skeptics who feel I have something to gain
  • Boycotters who shun it completely as they are too good to read something penned by a novice
  • Intellectuals who add to my knowledge
  • Friends who read it because they know me and like me!!! ( yes, it was a shock to me too that such people exist)
  • Lurkers who  talk to me about it when we meet socially —without ever having visited it
  • Encouragers who inspire me to write

Google has placed 3 advertisements !!!!!! This was the ambition and dream with which I began ( I am clueless as to why I wanted it!!!!) …..now that it is done, I shall discontinue it and write another book…..

Fisher-woman by the lake

She wakes up at first light

That is when the fish bite

She takes her rod and net

The sky comes up, the stage is set

The fresh food from the lake 

Is the dinner that she makes

Her kin gather around to eat

She rests her weary feet

They sing and laugh together

She wonders whether

The powers that be shall be as kind tomorrow

The worries she has do not show…………….

Words- deadly weapon or Cupid’s arrow

  • Words can be a deadly weapon or Cupid’s arrow.
  • Make sure you choose wisely and please or hurt intentionally!
  • Use words whichever way you want…..decide if you value the person and relationship enough to tread lightly….if you are really lucky, you can say what you want, without editing/ filters…and accept it from the significant other.
  • You need people who are brutally honest with you and expect that from you, Since everyone is not that lucky, here is how you can tread lightly ……
  • When a person could say….your hair is so thin and wavy, it’s unmanageable, if they are wise they will say…..Your hair is soft like a baby’s and naturally styled.
  • Instead of telling someone they look terrible in an outfit, you could tell them that they look better in other clothes.
  • Instead of saying ..you are becoming overweight….you could say….let’s start working out together.
  • Instead of telling someone they have ugly feet, you could tell them that a beautiful bird like a peacock has feet that don’t match it’s beauty.
  • You could but them a deodorant and perfume instead of telling them they stink…..I do not agree with this one! Hygiene people!!!! you need to clean, bathe, put on fresh clothes……
  • You could choose television shows and movies together instead of telling the other they watch ****

If you have the luxury of separate closets, washrooms and cars……your relationship can not be harmed…say whatever you want!!! just make sure you compliment more than you criticize!

PS….please customize your words to your own and your partner’s needs….do not listen to anyone 🙂

Surya namaskar birds

Passing by ponds and ‘unofficial’ water collections near my home, I see thousands of birds nowadays….some of them pose 🙂 Others offer me a fish they have just caught…more about that later…..

Your eyes reflect your emotions

Yes, an ophthalmologist can tell if you are lying…or angry or excited!!!! The pupil reveals your emotions to a large extent. Volumes have been written on the subject, studies have shown the pupil to be quite reliable….an alternative lie-detector? who knows what the future holds….meanwhile, while I act silly and giggle, I might be observing more that you think!!!!

Life–a 104 year old lady teaches us

She walks in the room, she can take care of herself is what her great-grandson says, after you gape when you are told that she is 104 years old. She does not have diabetes or hypertension or any other disease of the ‘new world’. 

I had to ask, what are the important things in life ? I figured I’d rather ask her than a guru who lived in the lap of luxury , dependent on other people’s money. This is what she said:

  • keep your soul happy with whatever you have
  • eat what you can… Anything is fine , as long as it’s not packaged and readymade
  • take life as it comes ( she has had several children , her husband passed away long ago)
  • do not envy others , live your own life
  • be kind
  • enjoy your life.
  • Do the best you can
    • try to be independent image

She is a satisfied , happy, down to earth , independent , kind lady who stays positive … She eats what is cooked at home and is clinically disease free!! It doesn’t take perfect looks or a luxurious lifestyle to be satiated , it takes a great spirit .

Sunset .. An end, a beginning

Not every end brings a sense of loss … The magnificent sunset we saw today meant the beginning of an evening to remember, in an area we had never visited before … It was a beautiful moment as the sun dipped down over a lake, and left to light up the other half of the world …

Sun-dance

When the sun plays peek-a-boo through the clouds, when the water bodies sparkle and the greenery adds vibrancy to the landscape, the spirit soars and the soul sings.. You know you’re in paradise and nothing else matters but the person who is by your side , the one who has held your hand through thunderstorms and gloomy days…. Count your blessings, not your money, play with pebbles , not your diamonds … image
