Before a good night’s sleep…
I await the message to beep;
I can do without it…
I tell myself..
But at the same time;
I need a rhyme!
To be out of my system.
To let sweet dreams come!
I need today’s balance sheet
Before I go to my retreat!
Thinking how my days, for the past one week, have been; I wish to sleep with calming and harmonious notes that my mind runs into,every now and then!
Will be here again sometime…till then eat, sleep and pray. 🙂 I tell myself yet again!
I am not sure if I mentioned my ‘love’ for the activity- cycling!? I don’t think so..else my tags would have shown. 🙂
So, you know, that I just love the rides I take on my bicycle–and specially the morning ones! I have in fact , a short time ago, returned from the bike ride,sipping some tea!! And probably you can feel how happy I am at the moment. It has been quite sometime, I rode, considering the harsh weather 🙂 and some laziness! Continue reading
It’s been a while that I am back home from my Chandigarh Trip; where I have done some pottery, that awaits me there.
Besides, in Hisar – my school awaits me. I fell terribly sick with viral fever on 29th of June while we (the teachers) were to join school on the 2nd of July, for children it got regular from 4th July. I can’t be sure if kids miss me at school but I genuinely think of them on almost everyday basis. Something or the other clicks and I reach the school in my mind 🙂
Now, though my fever is okay–having unfortunately given me good memory loss of the past week; today I am much better but got a little throat infection – thanks to change of season. I suffer this as when i was a kid, some doctor misguided my parents and they had got my tonsils removed!! And you know how I agreed – along with a cousin of mine, for the operation- as they said, we would get lot of ICE-cream to eat! Wow! what else a kid would want in summers apart from cold baths and icy stuff!! Continue reading
A distinguished state of Haryana, Hisar is my town/my city/my place for good or worse. I have lived here for quite a few years…umm.. like, I guess 12 and then from year 1999 to 2008 went to metro cities to work and acquire more professional knowledge (read Fine Arts Degree and some Diploma Courses)…
As life took its course, circumstances happened and here I came back again late in the year 2010; after the Melbourne and Adelaide stints 😉
But it is after around since 2013, I have actually developed affection or rather appreciation of the city- my own home-town! So, you can say now I have been living in Hisar for almost five years… and loving it. 🙂 Continue reading
As I was packing off from Chandigarh to Hisar –
I was feeling…
Well, I don’t know what I was feeling..but the journey was cool
With rains here and there
The weather seemed pretty good; mum-dad and I were reviving memories of childhood and the radio played beautiful songs. Today being RD Burman’s birthday – the radio in the car had songs from my mum’s college days, well, mostly and dad was smiling as she sang along some of the songs that were close to her heart 🙂
Just as we stopped over at my Bua’s place – Tohana – we were kinda hungry and mum made some hot pakodas with tea. We all sat and talked and had great fun relishing each bite. Sometimes, only such family gatherings, is all that you need to feel connected.
Hisar, however – is so hot. Though rains showered and breeze was cool…my neighbour said– there was a huge storm before it rained! Hisar is,any which ways, famous for it’s extreme weather and sandy something..well, not a storm..but well ‘aandhi‘ — I can’t get the right English word- sorry!
So..our home was heated and humid inside. We opened all the doors and with in an hour or so, every thing was settled to the normal routine. I am still a little in Chandigarh Lanes so thought to calm my veins and write the memory -in! 🙂
Visited – a nursery on the way
Flowers bought home – Mogra (probably, that’s jasmine in Hindi)
Hibiscus in white and also pink and Teardrops (!) a leafy thing — will write about it.
