Blink!

Life shimmers!

Blink, I m in our new house. I made sure the plate I used to eat never breaks while I m using it. 

I blink the eyes, Grandpa dies. My dad cries. I miss my second standard Christmas exam that day. I made sure nobody sees my welled up eyes.

When I blink the eyes, I m in the school classroom, more concentrated on the maths problem the teacher was teaching. I tapped my pen on the wooden desk continuously.

I blinked my eyes, I was in front of the President of India. I made sure I understand every word he says. 

Another blink, I m in that crossroad where I have to go straight to reach home. I adjust my skirt. 

Another blink, I m making magazine for the inter school fest. I looked seriously to my team members face.

Another blink, I m on the way to my morning Maths tuition. I checked whether my bicycle tyres are flat or not. 

Another, I m crying hugging my pillow in the hostel room after ragging. I wrote it as hell in the diary.

Another, I m in train on the way to Inter college badminton match. I checked whether I have taken everything I need.

Another blink, met the one person who gave me first impression as bad. made sure I will not meet him again. 

Another, I was crying looking on the results of first year. I made sure nobody notices that I m the most desperate.

Another, I met the first love of my life. I made sure I have enough time to spent.

Next blink, I m doing AIEEE B.Arch entrance exam. I made sure I m better than everyone.

Blink, I m crying losing the love.. he was crying on the other side of the phone line.

Blink, I m on the corridor of another college. I hated it like the worst place on earth.

Blink, I failed again and again on semesters. I made sure marks never decides my life.

Blink, I got the sunshine of my life. I made sure that I love her with my whole heart.

Blink, life upside down. I met the worst person in the world. I made sure I will hold on to my values till the last breath.

Blink, A bunch of people laughed and howled and entered my life. I swooped them away but they rebounded.

Blink, graduated and employed. I worked my ass off to make sure I m satisfied with myself.

Blink, I m in the desert of middle east. I tried more and more to smile.

Blink, I m back in Cochin with the best job in hand. I made sure I m responsible and loyal.

Blink, I got the best colleague and boss in life. she and he always made me feel like I m worthy. 

Blink, I took a house with my friends. I made sure nobody sleeps empty stomach in our home of 4 girls.

Blink, I met the best soul in my life. I promised to hold on to him till the end.

Blink, I m in Bangalore. walking on the parks and streets with my new friends. I made sure I enjoy. 

Blink, I started an interior venture with friends. I made sure that I can make the healthy arguments with the clients. 

Blink, I got my name printed on the cover of a book as an author. I made sure I will give the best smile that day.

Blink, World made arguments with me to get my love. I strived, I struggled and I survived.

Blink, I got a bunch of students who loved me. I made sure I love and guide them the best.

Blink, I became the wife of my love. I made sure I hold him closer to heart.

Blink, I got another best colleague to encourage me. I made sure she is always on my back.

Blink, Life went wrong again. I strongly held my family.

Blink, a new arrival to our life. He was born. I made sure he is happy with the best version of me.

Blink, I m in another country enjoying the Autumn fall. I made sure I will do the best to survive.

Blink, the boy grown up, the people became closer, the love never dies and the smile never fades

Life stumbles; then stood up again and jogged. When I lost Grandpa I never thought it will be biggest loss in my life till now. When I looked to the maths notebook in school I never realized that, it is the first subject I m going to fail in my whole life.. When I held the badminton racquet I wasn’t aware that, that season onwards I m going to stop playing. When I met the bad impression guy, I never thought I m going to see him again and again and again and he will become the best brother for my lifetime. When I first met my love, I never thought that it will be a turning point in my further love life.When I done the AIEEE, I scarcely know that I m gonna jump over the positive result and cry over the reason of not able to join SPA Vijaywada. When I entered the new college, I never thought I m gonna get the best people of my life from those corridors. When I married him I never realized it is the best decision I ever made in my life.

I never thought things will change like this. In every fraction of time. The people we meet. The people who left. The people who trusted and people who broke that. The people who loved and people who loathe.The kids that made my life. The sunshine girls who kept our home a bliss. The writings I made. The paintings I have drawn. The songs I sang. The travels I made. The photographs I clicked. The tears that spilled. The smile that never fades. The hugs. The kisses. The sun that shines. Moon that glows and the stars that shimmers.

Life changes! Embrace the moments!

P.S : Trying hard to get out of the writer’s bloc 

Never QUIT!

It was when I worked in Ankleshwar (Gujarat), I met this Calicut born Unni. A person with burden of worries. Failure encountered him in every jobs he tried. Once he said to me.. “I am a failure. I am not able to send at least a penny to my mother from the salary?”

It was on that night, I met him nearby the Ankleshwar Railway Station for the first time.

That Night
He disappeared from our place in the midnight and my mind whispered to me to go in search of him. In the end, I was compelled to believe the truth that he is walking towards his own death. He didn’t win in that part too. He criticized me for that.

“Unni..Take a moment & think. Have you ever thought of your mother? She brought up you till now. Even being a widow, did she ever made you feel the absence of your father? You know well that how she contended to her fate, whole day working in work sites and fields.. It was to make you & your sister happy. If you gonna quit from your life.. who will take care of them?” I wasn’t sure about what I am saying. But I spat out words with the vague knowledge about him.
“Chottu Bhai.. What else I should do? Do you think I forgot my mother & sister?”
“Unni.. You just look at me. I never gained anything from my life till now. A failure in studying too. You already know how I am struggling day night here. I took my life as a thrill. You too try to think so.. You can..This is not the end dear!”
He ran to me and hugged!
Still being a stranger he promised me. “No.. I won’t end my life myself.”

There started our friendship.

After years while I was in Abudhabi, I got a letter.
Sister got married. Mother is fine.
Chottu Bhai.. You are really my brother!

*************************************************************************************
I don’t know whether this is worth a read or worth sharing.. But this is clinging in my heart from the day I heard this.. The Chottu Bhai here is my own brother.. A person who I respect most.. It’s all because of his attitude towards life.. Every time when I meet him, he shares so many funny stories from his 37 years of life.. But when he narrated this, it made a special feeling in my heart.. May be the sole reason is hearing something serious for the first time from someone who always cracks jokes over his life.. I felt this as a message to everyone who is fed up of their life..
Take your life as an adventure.. You gonna love it.. 🙂
Never QUIT!!
