Dream of a new bloom

In the passing wind, sighed the bud by the river
A distant dream to float just floated off in the passing wave
A floating petal, a wish that crashed with a shiver
A dry leaf, the one which floated off in the wave

Little did the bud know, a beautiful bloom it would be
Sad it stood drooping, as if awaiting its doom to come
Heard the sobs, was a dotted old swirling little bee
Was a bug or so a pest but stood strong a hope for some

Brought in the magic seeds of love, to wipe away the gloom
Prayed to the god of light and the maiden of rains
Astonished, she bloomed to a glowing bright red bloom
Not the wind or the sun, even the river forgot its pains

Then came a day and so did the wind, in rushing spree
Was born a wave, a kiss of love to the river flowing
The floating petal, the wish of a new born and the bee
Stood the bloom, exited and all lost but forever glowing

Cubicle Paranoia - Face the Fear

A wish I had almost six months back was to bring doom to someone whom I thought added to the pain I was in at that time. Out of frustration, I wrote the above line and wola..the solution to it was just there..right in front of my eyes..

"A wish I had almost six months back was to bring doom to someone whom I thought added to the pain I was in at that time."

So there it was..the problem was in this I..tried my level best to keep him off the thoughts..but all failed..then one fine day I wrote a mail to him and also a friend request on a popular social networking site for working professionals..Many days without a reply..and then he replied..haha..some unknown level of satisfaction that I was able to face this guy..I am not sure why but something in this fella always made me feel uncomfortable and felt like I am scared of him..hahaha...

There are many things which I would prefer to be left under the stone..mainly due to corporate ethics and also professional practices..Its after all a small world..I forgave him..but still do remember his name..someday... :D

A moment of silence to all those souls departed..

Mumbai - A New Chapter in My Life

After a brief stint of over 3 years, fate now has me in the city of dreams fondly called Mumbai..Not much changes since I left almost 6 years back..The city is always on the there is no space left on the ground..Sky scrappers are all n humid thru the year..a city that comes to a standstill with one strong downpour..etc etc...all that apart..I thank this mighty maximum city for giving me a chance to come over and live with the million dreamers.....

SO here I start again...armed with my tweets and a few new ideas...

The stuff around here will still be mystic..sorrounded by a hue of blue...a very mystic..very blue..

Welcome back to Xetared :)...Welcome Mumbai to XetaRed..A blue carpet welcome to the dream city..

United Yet Divided

Everyday in some form or the other, we come across a statement which says that we citizens are united and nothing can split us apart. We blame politicians. We blame the Media. We blame the western world but there is one section which we never consider or never blame..Wondering who they are??..don’t be surprised…Its each of us. A great democracy and a wonderful country Indeed. Not to offend anyone but everyone in our land needs an identity which they firmly believe, would be found in some foreign land. Irony isnt it. If this wasn’t worse, imagine the situation the home ministry is tackling these days. Many around, need a separate piece of land for themselves. Surprising to see that people are still interested in seeing our land divided. A division happening within India in very much valid but talk about the northern peak of the country, we feel our blood boiling. I believe that if we oppose the division of the northern sector then we shouldn’t be speaking about a division within the country.

At this stage, I might sound like someone living in utopia. A perfect place. Yes..No doubt I am staying in a wonderful piece of land. The trouble is we are so very much attached to this piece that we need it all for ourselves. Someone comes says something and wola...We are out to fight without even thinking for a minute. situation of thought for everyone. Long back, our country was a cluster of small kingdoms. Many came, ruled us. We say that we accepted them all. But may be the wrongs prevailed. So there were lots of small kingdoms in an area called Hindustan. Someone from outside came and gathered under one umbrella..I know this will be opposed..So re-quoting..We united for opposing someone who came from outside. We were then called “Divided yet United” or Unity in Diversity. Let’s think about today..We are fighting for separate pieces..May be a route back to those dark ages of our country..We are very much united..More or less “United yet Divided”.

Internet - The Wowee Wobbly Web

There was a time when we all used to flock to the library or to the nearest relative for a book when we had a doubt about anything in life. There also was a time when we used to talk to everyone rather than just a ping or tweet. A letter used to mean a blue colored Indian Postal Service Envelope and not the electronic version of it. No one had a mobile phone and the phones which used to exist were meant to talk and not to play games. I sometimes wonder the way we are taking our life. I will take my case as an example and will support that by saying that I am one among those goofed up geeks who wished for a search option when reading my early morning newspaper. Sounds weird...isn't it...yes it is weird. We are so used to the Internet that more than information sharing & making our life better...It is actually becoming a way of life for us. Imagine a day...forget weeks n months...Just a day without your phone..your internet connection...your TV...and all that we depend on for a healthy life style...what will we do..Well the irony is..all these still depend on things which could cease to exist anytime..on one end we say that life is to be lived..but the question is are we indeed living our life or are we being lived…Am not sure...what do you think?...
