Cry















I really miss that one cry I had the other day
I tried very hard to hide my tears all the same
I miss feeling the way I did when I did cry
It was perhaps after a very long time that I had such a satisfying cry
I want to feel it all over again
It was in fact after remaining strong for a fairly long time that I cried in such a way
The reason for my cry was so simple yet so profound
Someone who I’d opened my wounds to, used their blazing tongue upon them
It hit me so well; it gave me memories, scathing ones
Unsure if I learnt not to show anyone my wounds again...
Cuz I don’t think I work that way
Waw! I miss that particular cry today
I wish I could have it around
It’s funny; my state of mind had been elation then
My cry transformed my being and transported us into another world altogether
I reveled in the feeling I recount
I wish I could have that cry around.

The Best ‘Proposal’ Scene in a Movie Ever!


Over time I’ve developed great fondness for Rom-coms than any other genre of our times. I somehow feel they help me keep my sanity when their quirky love tales and mushiness collide with the strange-harsh reality.

Reese Witherspoon is one of the actresses I regard very highly for her immaculate performances on screen. Last weekend, while looking for something to watch in my laptop, I came across this movie named “Sweet Home Alabama’.

It is a beautifully written film about a small town woman, who has hopes and dreams of making it big like any other person. The film opens with this beautiful beautiful scene where Patrick Dempsey (who is in love with Reese) whisks her away in a fancy car and brings her into an enormous dimly lit manor.


Reese was made to keep her eyes closed and as she opens it, she finds herself standing amidst a roomful of jewellery! Patrick has gotten her to Tiffany’s and she can’t believe it. He kneels down to propose to her in the classic manner indeed, while she’s dazed as things are happening too fast for her. The entire store is spectating the eventful moment. Reese looks around, and realises this is what she wanted after all and finally says yes!

Watch the video below:

 

Sigh! So that according to me was the most beautiful proposal in a movie ever. Do you have any other favourites? Let me know in the comments. J

To Husband is to Use with Care... & Other Quotes

These beautiful quotes about farming and agriculture tempted and inspired me to collate them into a post. It took me a great deal of time and patience to find pictures that are equally beautiful and portray the emotion of the author.. pictures that talk of land and farms and farmers...





Hope you enjoyed reading this list as much as I enjoyed curating it! 
Lots of Love <3

The Story Teller: An Encounter



Today I chanced to meet with the Story Teller Jeffrey Archer at a book launch of his latest release MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD at Crossword in Kemps Corner, Mumbai.

Recollecting my memory of seeing the 74 year old enter the Bookstore, an unending smile painted upon his face, grabbing the mike to say a humble ‘hello’ with a move so swift, seen only in 17 year olds. That moment or rather the act of humility displayed by a writer of such great stature and repute, will keep me thinking about him for years to come.



The many moods of Jeffrey Archer


As he spoke, I observed a pattern in his talks. His narration was righteous and honest by every means. The fervor and speed with which he fueled his speech was exemplary. He’d mock a lot, probably to keep the moments light and keep the momentum going. His ability to laugh at his own self and about things around which are so simple, yet so profound bowled me over.

In the 30 minutes that he spoke for, few things impacted me more than the rest. These few things will remain with me forever, in my mind, in my heart.

A friend of mine (who’d accompanied me) asked him, if there ever was a moment in his life when he didn’t have ideas to write about, when he felt as if there was a vacuum which he can’t really fill? Did he ever face such a situation?
His answer to the question above was that he could never feel like there ever was a lapse between his experiences or inspirations and his work. He said he was highly self motivated and drew inspiration from everyone, everything, everyday.

He said that writers can be made and writers can be many, while story tellers are born and few. These story tellers are gifted and thus lucky as he. As a story teller, he doesn’t have to look for ideas to write, they come to him naturally. But he sure does draw tremendous inspiration from those around him.

His first book NOT A PENNY LESS, NOT A PENNY MORE (1976), saw severe rejections by publishers as many as 17 times. Nonetheless, it remains the closest to his heart from all of his works.

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas is one of his favorite reads through which he gained inspiration to write, it is also one of my all time favorites.

“What lake-like eyes!” were his exact words as I went onto the stage to get a copy of the book signed by him.  I couldn’t help but smile meekly. With my signed copy of the book, I stepped aside the stage for others’ turns.

Encounters of this nature, with a writer you’ve grown up reading, who you’ve simply heard and read of, but never met with, always come in the form of a blessing too pure to be told. As hard I try, the magnitude of impact it had upon me cannot be described too well.

Soaked In Love

Just when losing all my hopes

Myself felt being bound by ropes

The throat filled with sobs and chokes

You knocked the heart's bolted doors

Senses but ignored your constant probes

Then my heart said this can't be hoax

He'll fill you with laughter roars

Slowly then gathering myself off the dopes

I let you sit beside me again with hopes

Then declaring undying love,
You lead me from my sinking seas towards the shores!
