When 2 hearts held hands :-)

Filed under: Cheer :-D,Happiness,Life — Teal @ 11:39 pm

Today is not just any other day, it’s special
The day that marked the beginning of a bond eternal
A friend held hands with the man of her dreams
And forever, a lifetime of happiness begins

For my dear friend B and B , who tied the nuptial knot today morning and began
a new journey together. 😀

Mid winter monsoon

Filed under: Poetry — Teal @ 10:46 am


I wake on a day, in the mid of monsoon

Cloudy weather through out, even at noon

I ride on my bike on the way to work

The wonderful weather, drives me berserk


Schools and Colleges are closed today

Whilst we all slave away

Looking at the window, across the floor

I feel a sense of comfort , forever more


Grab a cuppa, step out to see

Sit by the wet grass , feel the breeze

The smell of damp earth, the joy I feel

Now this, is homecoming to me

Inner Peace

Filed under: Poetry — Teal @ 10:37 am

Inner peace, you forever evade me

Your absence , it never lets me be

Narrow minded, I have become

Frustrated and totally numb


I try to cover the emptiness inside

I try to force that fake smile

And then it strikes me, I subside

I’ve been living one big lie


This is the point of no return

Looks like I will crash and burn

A void purpose, a conscience maimed

This is all that remains . . .

God forsaken

Filed under: Life,Poetry,Sobriety — Teal @ 10:17 pm

Withered and haggard, she walked alone

Soles of her feet, torn on stone

Beneath the ruthless skies of her bane

She aimlessly treads on, unknown


At every juncture there was a story to tell

Long long ago, when things went well

With a many a high hopes, she shrugged it all

Moved on , blissfully unaware of the fall


In many a situation , she did not stand a chance

Shock held her captive, dumb as if in a trance

This time around things might change, she thought

Fear , anger and negativity, she bravely fought


Then came the steep end of the cliff, so near

She stared across the blinding light with no fear

A knight stood across with a hand held out

And out she reached , hesitance and glum without


But little did she know that it was a plot

Meant to make her fall, and crash like an earthen pot

She fell into the abyss, how deep she fell

Only the endless time could tell


Now she rises from the deep abyss

With complete distrust, naivete destroyed

She walk on , withered and haggard

Aspirations and hopes, she will avoid.


She wonders what happened in between?

Why were all her joys and dreams taken

The sky roared with thunder, then she realised

That she was god forsaken.

Which Dark Knight Character Are You?

You are Batman. You take your role in the world very seriously, and live up to your responsibilities diligently. You have felt pain in your life, and this pain guides you and reminds you of how important peace and safety is in the world. You train both your mind and body ruthlessly and have never called in sick for anything- EVER! You are naturally intelligent and are constantly sharpening your thinking skills and pride yourself on staying up to date on world events. It isn’t always easy for you to ask for help because you have a huge streak of pride in your soul, but you are not a fool- so when you need a helping hand, you take it! You believe in justice and help seek it.

The enlightened efflorescence

Pain is real, pain is good
but ever so often, misunderstood
In the garden of flowers, only are weeds
When all one looks for is a loyal steed

Severing the weed from the root
Save nothing else, but the truth
Why to cling on to poison?
Why go on with loathing, and treason?

We live in a world of hypocrisy
We live and prolong this shamed legacy
There is no room for truth and love
fortitude and frankness, is now heresy

The garden of flowers, is now barren
What is now hell, was once a haven
I’d rather live solo,  in a desert of storms
Then be surrounded by scorpions of various forms

?Marudaani karangalil yaen?

Filed under: Cheer :-D,Girl Power!,Happiness,Life,New India — Teal @ 9:46 am

Last night was the first time I tried putting a complicated design for myself with a mehendi cone. South indians are usually accustomed to the adai-kuppi style of mehendi putting. [adai : A giant filled circle of mehendi in the palm , and the kuppi is the layer covering the first phalange of all the fingers fully with mehendi, giving the nails a orange tint too 😀 ]

Off late I have been hooked to this song called ‘Marudaani vizhiyil yaen?’ from the movie Sakarakatti. Yes another noteworthy creation of the great A.R Rehman. Yesterday morning the song ran in infinite loop for almost 3 hours, after which my parents came and turned off my media player 😛

The moment I spotted a mehendi cone, I searched the web for some designs. Looks like the compulsive , repetitive listening to that song brain washed me into putting this. The results, well, you can see them below.

Rock on, rocks on!

Filed under: Cheer :-D,Movies,Music,Reviews — Teal @ 1:19 am
Rock On!

Rock On!

So you’d thought the guy with the classic Midas touch who had faltered with ‘DON’ would not make a comeback? So you’d thought the director with a genius lyricist’s blood running in his veins , can’t sing or act? Wrong and well, wrong again.

Starting from the slick trailors being shown on television to the promos put in theatres, ‘ROCK ON!!’ had kindled my curiousity enough to make me want to actually walk into a theatre and want to watch this movie.

The previous bollywood fest I had seen was ‘Jaane tu ya jaane na’ which was, well , let’s not get there! 😀

So I got to hear the songs of the movie much before I actually saw it. There was an instant liking to ‘Pichle saat dinon’ , soon enough I was addicted to this one and sang along everytime it was played.Oh, I forgot to mention Farhan’s singing skills. He sounds like Lucky Ali meeting rock music. Which is totally rad!The other song to which i had a instant attraction was ‘Rock ON!’ and ‘Sindbad the sailor’. Although sometimes it feels like the lyrics of ‘Pichle saat dinon mein’ doesnt make much sense, ‘Sindbad’ is full of inspiring lyrics and quite hummable too. It has been a while since I felt good after watching a hindi movie. Rock On brought that crazy grin on my face after a long long time!

Purab donnes the clown cap in the movie , and yes Arjun Rampal can also act! Shocking but true 😛

The angle of ‘the rift between 2 members of a thick gang of friends re-uniting’ might make one reminiscent of Dil Chahta Hai. But everyone has done a great job in acting in this movie. Heck , even Farhan has. This has proved that he is quite a versatile guy.

Of the recent bunch of movies I have seen, ‘Rock on’ clearly stands out.

PS: This is post #150! 😀
