By your side!

In the sun and in rains
All alone in the open plains
Staring at the sky and beyond
Waiting for the golden dawn

Like the first ray of sun
Bringing joy to everyone
Small and chubby like fresh dew
The best thing I had seen, it was you

Your mischief and curiosity created chaos
Your shrill cries were a major turn off
But the minute I'd see your deep dimples
I knew you were my god sent Angel

I saw you crawl, sit, and walk
Those unclear words when you just learnt to talk
And now you are a different you
But you still remain my same baby sis---My Aishu

Things will come and times will go
Life will keep changing its flow
At times things will not seem right
But dont you worry, I am always by your side!

Back to School

It's been 15 years since I joined VVHS. So just in the fond memory of the times and days there...

Get up early, dont get late
Time to rush to the school gates
Morning assembly and prayers
Prefects carrying out their regular affairs.

Days began with value education,
Students however gave least attention
Lots of mischief, and mess
We all waited for the recess...

Dabba sharing and snatching
Missing the stares of teachers who were watching
Second half was generally a bore
Unless it was the P.T. session we adored

Last minute homework done
Troubling teachers was always fun
10 minutes before time screaming "enouugghhhh"
Wasting time with random stuff

Teachers telling us what's wrong and right
Interfering in between all the fights
Always trying to be just and fair
Loving us and showing that they care

Waiting for the last lecture
To run home was always a pleasure
To be first to reach out of the gate
Running fast as if it were a race...

Today all that is in the past
Time has gone by really fast
If there was anything I wish I could do
It was to go back to school.

Karmabhoomi

15 years back on this very day an 8 year old found a new place to call home. A big house with her very own bedroom. A huge bed for her sister and her. Lots of toys and everything else that she never had before.

But she knew things were going to be different. From a house populated with 12 to 15 people at a time, it was a drastic change to just be living with parents and a toddler sister.

From a convent school to co-ed education, life had taken a different turn. Different people and environment to grow up. Things were not as easy as they seemed at the start.

Talking to boys and hanging with them was a taboo. She wouldn't know coming from a family where she was the only girl with 4 male cousins. Growing with them and their friends was all growing up was about.

Yet there were other inexperienced things. The good ones. Having friends to play with. Having friends around in the first place. Inviting them over and showing them around. Getting invited to their place.

Getting used to all the changes took time. But she never realized how fast it flew. She is 23 today. Her baby sister is double the age she was when she came here. The family of 4 is now of 8 with 4 cute and pampered pets.

15 years gone in a blink of the eye. Yet so many memories, so many people have been a part of this journey. It will continue for much longer I am sure. But looking back at all that has passed just re instills all that I have gained so far!

From the 8 year old girl to a 23 year old adult, life's been a good ride. Loved all the twists and turns. The place and the people. The life and experience.

I cannot boast of being born and brought up here, in Thane...but I can definitely brag about it being my homeplace...my "Karmabhoomi".

Aayushat Kadhi...

Aayushyat Kadhi...

Aayushyat kadhi aase hi ghadte,
Hasta hasta patkan dole bharun yetat
Kahi na bolta tech aashru
Nakalat sagle sangun jatat.

Aayushyat kadhi aase hi ghadte
eka kshnala hati kahich naste
ani dusaryach kshni ekdum
manala have tech sangle milte

Aayushyat kadhi aase hi ghadte
Jo aplya barobar pavlan paul chalto
aayushachya vegh wadhlyavar
aaplyalach mage sodhun nighun jato

Aayushyat kadhi aase hi ghadte
Matnat aplya khup kahi aste
pan shabdatun kadhich bolat nahi
ani aayushabar tech bochat rahate.

Aayushat kadhi aase hi ghadte
kadhi harto, jhinkto, radato, hasto
ani ayushyacha khara aartha hach
he ase kalun chukto
