Alzheimer #AtoZChallenge

The tables were laid with her favorite delicacies and adorned with huge chocolate cake and colorful balloons hung around.
“What’s going on? Why so much of celebration?”
My eyes were welled with tears.
Alzheimer had taken toll and she could not remember her birthday nor she could munch her favorite dishes.

I Am Happy Without Kids!!!

Indian Bloggers


One day while
in my job, I met a person, who was in his late fifties. A dashing man and he
happened to be one of my prestigious client, we earned handsome revenues from
him. I had been in touch since 12-13 years, so there was a personal touch with
him too.
One day, while
discussing my product promotion, I just happened to ask him about his children,
where they were and what they were doing. It was part of our job to know the
client well for further promotion of our products.
He replied
plainly, “Sorry, I don’t have kids.”
The color of
my face changed and I regretted to have delved into the question.
I apologized
him profusely for my question.
Very boldly he
said, “Why you are feeling so sorry? I am happy that I don’t have kids.”
“Sorry Sir, I
didn’t mean to hurt you. I didn’t ask deliberately, I was ignorant.” I
apologized once more.
Though these
mere words were nothing as I had touched his emotions.
“Ohh, Madame,
relax. No need to apologize. I really mean my words. I am happy that I don’t
have kids.” He said.
It made me
curious and I tried to enter the no entry zone of his emotion, but I had to
because many queries erupted in my mind and his answers could only satiate my
“Why Sir? Why
you say so? Can you share Sir?” I said sheepishly.
“In day to day
life, I meet my friends and relatives and find them disturbed just because of
their children. Some have complain that their children don’t take their care
nor do they enquire about their welfare or whereabouts. Some stay with them but
treat badly n avoid them. At least, in the later age of life, I am happy, free
from these expectations n anxiety n you will be surprised that we both don’t
have any major complications and I find reason simple that we don’t have any
botheration’s….so, relax Madame, don’t blame yourself for questioning me. Many
people question me and I reply Bindaas n people are amazed at my attitude.” He
explained in simple words.
I was
speechless, no words to say.
Somewhere, he
was right. There are people who have breathed their last in expectation of
their children returning back to them.
When one sees
the pain around then the people’s perception change.
I am thankful
to God that our parents are blessed to have us and I am blessed to have caring
kids else my soul would have been in pain.
So, guys,
don’t let down your parents. Take care of them and envelop yourself with their
Remember, one
day, we all have to pass through this phase and believe in firmly,
“As you sow,
so you reap.”


Thoughts Following Me!!!


In the stillness

Of misty morning

As I amble

On the bridge.

The trail of yesteryear’s

Trip, taken together

Spills before me


Fills me with remorse.
The thoughts of you

Pinches my soul

Like needles.
The view of beautiful sky

And the emerging Sun

Elates my dampened mood

The velvety breeze 

Caresses my soul

And, trims me out of clamminess.

Limerick Challenge Week 40: #Fear


Deep seated fear made her wary

The dreams that followed her was scary

He dawned in her life

To make her his wife

But she was in no mood to make merry.


He had a phobia of flying
Friends requested to keep trying
Turbulence in mid-air shook the airbus
He caught the air-hostess thus

She complained of misbehavior & spying.

One Sentence Story

I stood alone in the empty room inspecting the walls which had the engravings of faded 

designs of colorful crayons and my heart cried out for the kids who were settled far.

Friday Skywatch

All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,

“You owe me.”

What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.”

Recently I was travelling and I am fond of captivating sky views at different timings at different places.

                                                     #Bangalore morning Skywatch

                                              Day break view at #Mysore Road, Bangalore.

                                               Mid-noon sky view of Mumbai Skies.

It leaves me mesmerized and I feel calmness within me, watching the captivating captures.
