I did not have any big dreams or expectations and I had my mind made up to face the new life I was coming to. After all, I have been self-sufficient and independent for quite a few years now and a ‘small-time’ failed marriage would not affect professional accomplishments, I thought; after getting over my short stint in matrimony and staying away from any sort of connection, recovering and accepting what I was going through, avoiding the social dramas in India but never in my wildest or weirdest thoughts did I think that in Melbourne, I would lose whatever little I was left with.
No, I won't watch it. No, I don't care about the ads.
We think that greatness is measured in the number of people who notice. However, they are all you. When you realize that only you are viewing your grand achievement, it pales beside the feat of making yourself unreservedly happy.
Recognize your greatness. Notice your wonderful universe. Create joy.

From the day I am home..wow! Been two months now; unbelievable! I have been stuffing myself with the delicious foodstuffs and sweets that I was deprived of! Yes, there have been times when I literally missed Indian delicacies abroad and I am sure you all know, what it is like to be able to dig-in your favourite food after a long time So along with home cooked food by mum; I have really been gorging on all kinds of yummy stuff coming my way from all over.

Weeks have gone by yet again and I could not bring myself ‘up’ in all senses (the computer room is also upstairs to write anything new in my snippets. I am glad that I have only few people to apologise as I have only you to read what I write.
Okay, between this and that, not much has happened except that I am taking it easy to relax and rejuvenate…but yeah, this significant period of 10 days came, out of which nine went incredibly fasting and 10th was a big day- being an Indian festival as well as my mum’s 54th birthday.

Exactly a month today or may be a day less/more that I managed to write anything on my blog and even out of my blog; yeah, rarely anything/any word online or offline. Oh! Sorry. Actually I did write few..err..more than a few words in offline mode; the old regular way of writing since my time - :) with a pen or pencil on paper. I missed that, I think, a lot. Unlike typing, I have always loved writing traditionally.
Anyway, this blog is recording of my life at my will. Places or events I visit/take part, things I recall or stuff I want to remember, the feelings I feel and wish to share openly with my readers/my friends and I should stick to the title of the post now :)
‘Fire and (my) Eyes’
I have forgotten some details and my memory fails me yet again but here we go – a long story cut short like some few stories in my past; this one though is fresh and the most recent one, it still is now a month old So, all those of you kept wondering or thought may be at least once that ‘‘where’s this girl gone or what is Nikki up to??’’ ; read this and rest your minor thoughts of me, over me. I missed being in touch but didn’t miss typing, as I kinda not like typing at all. Wish I had an assistant ;) to type without much hype…eh! degrading in rhymes, am I?!?
My house that I consider home in Adelaide was caught in a fire and I was hazed in it so much so that my eyes hurt even till today. I do not recall if you people know (via any of my posts) I was living in a very old wooden duplex house and the fire was precarious. Also my housemates were out of the town so this smoky fire did take a toll on me and specially my eyes because instead of running away, I tried and managed to put off the small fire turning huge…first downstairs and then upstairs (according to the incident I remember now, I am not too sure of the how’s and when’s of that day)And well, that is all about the unfortunate yet a memorable day in my life forever.
Help arrived just when there was only smoke and no fire, Raj- my housemate called them (help…aid) in time when he just reached home from Melbourne. I was hospitalised and was under treatment while Raj had lots to go through about the fire, his own office life and an added responsibility of seeing me through and the worst thing is ‘we are sort of kicked out of the house now’ :( I feel sorry for my housemate Raj and Thank him earnestly for facing the impacts of that day’s stupidest idiotic fire. I also have around me some (still to be calculated) amount of dollars to pay the loss and with it the after effects for me also are lingering along with medication…however, the best part is that now I am in India, peacefully at home(Yes, HISAR) with mum-dad and family healing like the saying ‘ice on fire’
Wow! Coming home this soon was least expected and isn’t this a blessing? It is. It is.
How have you all been? Kindly write something, I do not come online often and may reply late but you know, I will certainly reply back as and when I show up in the virtual world…
happiness to you all – it’s me like before
I loved it so I want to keep it 4 keeps!!
Keep Sake memories…of sum plus thin thing!!

Before this time-line is lost
I thought to put up
sillier – a Post
I slept very few hours
but I feel so fresh
as blooming lil flowers
Woke up exactly 24 minutes back
I have really been eh!
I used to fret on that
and it was like
an open door
to my room
with an old D-mat
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
My canon forgets
to ask them
don’t let the time
snap the pic
used this phrase before
but now I found all
I love writing and rhyming
the feelin’ is so mutual
it needs no funds
It is about to be 10:10
on the clock
right side of my screen
the left side
in my window
is yummy–so greeeeeen
lies a striped
i see near by
Wishing you all a lovely morning, a relaxing Sunday and a nice-nice Week ahead!
Yours sincerely: Nikki
- Alphabet of the day: O
