Three moments I’ll never forget!

Daily Prompt: Moments to Remember

Three most memorable moments in my life….

1.When I got my 10th grade award for Academic Excellence( 9.8 GPA )on stage by the Indian Ambassador to K.S.A.My parents were in the audience and they were proud of me.I don’t think anything can beat that feeling.

2.When I got 1st place in the entire 5th grade for an elocution competition in school.My dad’s efforts to prepare me for for weeks, paid off.  🙂

 The same year I won 1st place in an elocution competition in konkani.I’ll always remember this because the prize I got was my very first Cassette Walkman! 

3.When I got a mail from my college saying that I got a seat!For weeks I had gone through the disappointment of not getting a positive reply from any of the colleges I’d applied to.I was determined that I wouldn’t take a management seat.I wanted to get in on my merit.When the call finally came,It was beyond anything I’ve ever experienced.I was literally  jumping around the house with joy.

Dreams

People come into our lives          

like dreams unknown,unheard of.

Mere shapes floating by

constantly changing forms.

 

Some better forgotten,

memories laid to rest.

Sleepless nights and weary days they bring,

the sorrows of past things.

 

Most are just passersby

they shimmer for a while

their essence lost,

to unknown winds.

 

Hopeful dreams,

giving strength and courage

their fears concealed 

behind strong smiles.

 

The best are beautiful dreams.

Special few who come by,

figures of life and love

lighting up every corner of your soul.

With their presence alone,

they warm  hearts, stone cold.

 

 

It’s A Journey So Don’t Stop Believing-Steve’s Music Mix

Steve’s Music Mix

I’m trying something new.Sounds fun!Here it goes..

Here’s a reminder how it works:

(2) Say the questions aloud and press play
(3) Use the song title as your answers
(4) NO CHEATING

Title your post “Steve’s Music Mix – …” and link back to this week’s page.

 

Where have you come from?  

Ans:Behind these Hazel Eyes 

Haha..I don’t think this makes any sense 😛

 

Where are you at?

Ans:My Heart’s a Stereo

If so,I love my present state. Every time I breathe I would feel music.Wow!Now won’t that be great!

 

Where are you going?

Ans:Far Away

Yes I would love to go someplace far and quiet.

 

The Blackboard Of My Life

Image

My life was an empty blackboard

when I first began.

Now it is filled,

with thoughts,values and little things.

Few from childhood

and some on the way to adulthood.

Most of them vaguely understood

and some over which I still brood.

A few I am able to perceive

and the rest is as good as I didn’t receive.

Oh how I dread the duster,

it erases sweet memories

written deep within me

by “chalk” my faithful companion.

It’s time to erase the unwanted

and let the good sink in.

To leave behind,all that is lost

move ahead whatever it may cost.

My whole strength will it take

to absorb each word into me.

An Ode to the chalk of my life,

who is none other than me.

Guardian Angel

I had a twin who passed away in the 2nd week of pregnancy.Initially I didn’t understand why I always admired twins and wished I had one too.It was not until later that mom told me about it.This one is for my twin, wherever you are!

You were a part of me,

but you could never be me.

We were conceived in the same womb,

the one which was later to become your tomb.

As we were beginning to form,

we thought of this place as cozy and warm.

But as realization dawned,

that it was here we would take shape

to enter the world which showed love,but with a cape.

Anxious though we were,

we knew the other would be there

throughout life,to care.

Suddenly I was left alone

with no one to call my own.

Though I was nothing then,

I knew you had gone.

There was nothing I could do

but weep silently for a lovely lifeless corpse.

  How could I ever let you know,

how much I’d begun to love you.

But I do believe that you are somewhere near

watching over me,

as my guardian angel.

Sleepy Head

Daily Prompt: Mr. Sandman

If you ask my family and friends they would say I’m a heavy sleeper.I can’t say that they are wrong because I’ve proved it on several occasions.Once I fall asleep,my ears automatically shut out any kind of external noise.

I can’t help.I love sleeping!If I have my afternoon off,I’ll come back to my room and sleep.The result is I can’t sleep at night.

sleepless-clock

Not getting sleep when you want to sleep is the most annoying thing!

But in general its difficult to wake me up when I go to sleep.My mom would joke saying that even if there was an earthquake I’d still be sleeping soundly.Well that was my old self.

Things have changed drastically after coming  to college. I’ve learnt to wake up on my own when the alarm rings.(My mom thinks that is a miracle!).Old habits die hard,so I must admit that a time or two I’ve missed the first class because I didn’t hear my alarm.But that is only because I slept late doing an assignment or studying for a test.In my defense its better to sleep on my bed a little longer than on the table in class.

The kid inside each of us!

Daily Prompt: Young At Heart

  No matter how much I mature,the kid inside of me will always  be there.

Each one of us has a little kid that’s hidden deep inside.Some people are afraid to let the world see that side of them.They fear they might be      judged.But I say why not!Look at kids,they are carefree and happy.

->They don’t worry about the future.Here I’m not saying that you shouldn’t  have a goal in life, but instead of worrying how your future might be,work hard and leave the rest to god.  

-> If they have an issue with someone they are straight forward about it and its even forgotten the next day.No grudges.That is what I love most    about little kids.They forgive and forget so easily!

 -> When they dance,they dance like crazy(People find it cute too).Why bother what others think.

->Work hard,play harder.One thing I miss the most.These days I trade most of my free time to complete projects or catch lost sleep.

->When in doubt,ask mom & dad.No matter how old I am,I would like to take advice from my parents in certain cases.

->Early to bed,Early to rise! Thanks to engineering I don’t have a fixed schedule.

 

P.S:Comment and let me know if I missed anything!
