Passing Thoughts...

It is SO worth it making someone smile. :) (smiles foolishly)

Gods been playing artistic dude for 3 days in a row.. Yesterday he went all pastel.. The evening was so bright... Orange and fiery. It was so beautiful it made me stop being panicky as I was (Isha will vouch for that!) and I decided to admire the sun go down with a silent wow. (Karan will vouch for that!) :)

And today He decided to play with water colors. First he went into sepia mode.. making everything look so beautiful I cant even find the right words.. and then it rained!!!!!!!! YAY!!!! as expected I went mad... went and played 'saakhli' with the kids. (don't ask me what that is if you don't know. :P I'll be too embarrassed to say. :D) Taught the youngest ones to make paper boats.. and jumped in the dirty puddles with the older ones. Annie plays while Mom is away. :)

Saw a cute couple walking hand in hand, oblivious to the world.. Getting wet in the rain. Watched them with a faraway smile. Missed someone. The rains tug at the heartstrings that ache the most.

"Jo tum ho toh yeh lagta hai ki mil gayi har khushi,
Jo tum na ho toh yeh lagta hai ki har khushi mein hai kami......

Tum ko hai maangti.. yeh zindagi..."

- Annie.
P.S: Its Raininggggg!!!!!! :)

Quest said...

I am in a desert in tamil nadu where it will never rain :( Geographically it is connected to the equator by the line of No-hope.
I will not be in Kerala to welcome the monsoon this time around, hoping that it doesn't turn back on not finding me :D

Jumping into dirty puddles? Nice excuse to take a bath once in a while :D

I'm too curious, so I just have to ask... what's "saakhli"?? :P

"The rains tug at the heartstrings that ache the most." I know that to be true, but tu bhi...?? :O


Loved the post, as always. Cheers...

sigh now dat u ask.. 'saakhli' is a variation of pakda-pakdi (hope u knw wht dat is atleast!!!) whr one person is running to catch d others n whn dat person catches someone, d caught person n the earlier one form a chain ('saakhli') n run to catch others. (ok i hope u understood dat. :P)

its funnnn whn a longgg 'saakhli' forms n they all run behind one person. lolz. :P dats wht d kids did to me. :P

n oh goddd!!! u too on hav d same views abt d rain n d heartstrings??? wow!! we are alike. :)
