Ray of hope…

ray of hope

Her phone rang once in the evening after he came back from office, to ask whether she took her medicines.

Her phone rang once again at night, to ask whether she had dinner.

Had he known she needed him the most, more than the medicines,

Had he known she needed some time from his busy schedule,

she would have recovered.

Today,she was still fighting, with her mind and her heart.

Today,she still believes that there is a ray of hope, because there is always a sunshine after a dark.

Weeny tale #2 – Love for Longhand writing

writing

Her laptop, a gift from Dad.

Her Smartphone, to type anything, anytime.

But Shine would always sit near the window,

Her favorite place,

With her pen and her diary.

She still loved longhand writing,

Admired the pen dancing on paper,

To make it look even more beautiful.

Her world was in her diary.

Weeny Tale #1 – Realization

you

She gave you herself,

You made her realize what she deserved,

You made her realize what she can never get,

Finally, you woke her up again.

It’s not yet morning and,

She realized she failed again.

Captivity

girl_lookingat_moon-j95

Don’t know what you are suffering from,

Leaving who is near you,

You always long for who is far.

No matter how much they try to come close to you,

They land up being at a distance.

You are a riddle, unknown to anyone.

For how long have your eyes not slept?

For how long has your heart not been at peace?

 *

I know, yesterday, you met her again,

You saw her again, the old you.

The one, who was made to look beautiful by the unexplained time.

 *

You have never wavered in your fidelity,

Today repeatedly makes innuendos to forget her.

But you, with a predilection for thinking

And dreaming about her,

Would not understand,

That your escape is never imminent.

Happy Endings…

happiness

 

I don’t believe in happy endings.

If something beautiful ended, it cannot be happy.

Endings should have a pinch of pain. 

That proves that not only the beginning,

but your journey was beautiful and worth suffering for.

Camping, Adventure and Nature

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We all know that feeling when escape is imminent. You can feel it in the horizon just as you’ve been shackled down into workload. We didn’t want to come back to office, to hundreds of emails. We all wanted to set our out-of-office reply to something funny like “Sorry, We are currently out-of-office trying our hand at adventurous activities in Vikramgad.” Hahaha! Though it wasn’t carried out, one can always dream about it. Vikramgad was going to be our adventure and what an adventure it was!

On 14th of March 2014, the AMO, M3 and Project Labs teams took some time out from their busy schedules, for a two day team outing to Vikramgad. The trip began at Rohan Resort where we had an amazing time at the water park. Thereafter, we followed it up with an equally delicious lunch, exciting cricket matches and moved on to Nature Trails Resorts- Sajan Nature Club.

The nature club enchanted us from the moment we arrived. We were right away fascinated by the beauty of nature before us and fell in love with it. As we headed to our respective tents to dump our luggage bags, we were enthralled by the captivating beauty of the tents. This unusual lodging site led us to a most memorable stay, as for most of us it was our first sleepover in a tent and yes ‘ODOMOS’ was our savior from the insect army! Later on, we engaged ourselves in some team building activities like ‘treasure hunt’ and ‘cooking’. Although, cooking in wood fire was a challenge, we were proud of all the chefs who could pull off the lavish dinner. There were mouthwatering mix-veg curry, Punjabi dal, jeera rice, veg raita, chapattis and salad to top it off. After a scrumptious dinner we all gathered around the camp fire and played dumb charades. After the fun galore, we returned to our tents late at night to rest. In the morning, we set out to discover what Sajan Nature club had in store for us.

Trying our hand at Kayaking was long overdue for most of us and it couldn’t have been better. The ‘Valley Crossing’ and ‘Burma Bridge’ climbing were equally exciting and left us with a sense of joy.

The challenging and adventure rewarding- Vikramgad trip was one of the best trips we had ever taken as a team. Big thanks to the gregarious group who were able to pull off such an exciting and memorable event.

life is more beautiful…

life is more beautiful

Life is more beautiful,

With the happiness as well as the problems,

For the fact you are here.

Life looked more beautiful,

The day I stopped running away,

And not hoping to change the past.

 *

Life started to seem more beautiful,

Since the day you taught me to deal with everything,

And live it day by day.

It’s then life started to seem more beautiful,

It’s then I realized how every detail of life is important,

How every moment of life is worth living.

So that later when I close my eyes and remember these moments,

I can live it again.

Life is beautiful because of you,

Life is more beautiful with you.
