Beautiful is..

Beautiful is..
The money plant having drops of dew
The stars lit night with moon blue

Beautiful is..
A chubby child's angelic smile
The rain drops which wets a mile

Beautiful is..
The rainbow in the sky above
The early morning chirping of doves

Beautiful is..
The inimitable serenity of sea
The first kiss under a tree

Beautiful is..
The yellow butterfly on a red rose
And yes may be this little prose :)

Dear Blog, I was going through my diary in which I used to write poems way back in the year 2000 and I had the urge to put this one up here, I hope you will not mind my childishness!

Last few days, I made my mommy go crazy as I went about selecting and rejecting the pictures I would put in our house. On my parents bed, was a pile of photographs from my childhood, birthdays, their honeymoon, marriage, holidays and the rest. I sifted through each album many times over before zeroing on the ones which I like the best. I then headed straight for the photographer's shop and asked him to resize the photos, so that they would fit well in the various photo frames I had collected. He got them perfectly done and what I delight it was to see them, to put them carefully in photo frames and finally finding the perfect space for placing them.

Pictures give a whiff of the beautiful past and I love the concept of having pictures clicked today for whatever silly reason possible. As much as this moment may seem like just another day, another time, 20 years from hence or even 2 years from now, it will be a different place, different world and all that will remain of today will be those pictures. We move so fast, one relationship to the other, one job to the next, one holiday and then another, how can one remain sane and remember all that happened in this big beautiful world.

Thank you the great soul who invented the camera, I and Facebook will always remain indebted!

New Year is the time of the year when people exchange greetings quite enthusiastically and I am one of those super enthusiastic ones whom you will find in office canteen, in malls, in parking lots generally smiling and passing the "Happy New Year" look. People also very graciously ask and tell about the New Year resolutions and as much as I am all in for the resolutions, I usually also look back at the Old Year and make a mental note of good - bad things that happened. The Old Year at least deserves a mention, right?

Anyway so when I was doing the same for 2011, all the things that came to my mind were either to do with people, places or experiences. Top of the mind recall were: my Kerala trip with mommy daddy, Jagjit Singh Live in concert with H, euphoria of India winning the world cup, luncheon with my girlies on Valentines, run up to VBs wedding, an evening with AS in Noida, a morning breakfast in Candies, a bachelorette of a friend, a book I read (the color purple), a movie date with daddy cool, a song dedicated by my little cousin, a mid night buffet with my school time buddies and a dress which I randomly bought as a gift to myself. All of this and much more tells me that it is these moments small and big in which we live. Days, months and years pass by but there will always be times to cherish.

Yes yes, I know New Year, you are craving for attention and so here my dear blog for the sake of record I write about the well crafted and thought through New Year resolution. It is called Mission 26 and along with the fancy name comes a lot of hard work namely regular exercise and quitting junk but going by my past three days record, it seems like I will take an eternity to accomplish this and not just the New Year. Though I must give credit to myself for at least taking the stairs both at office and home but If only, this works! I know Mission 26 is tough and that on New Year there is performance pressure but lets see baby, where you take me. Love.
