Incidents Thought and Reason

Disappearing toddlers

Some of my newest friends on Facebook were ‘toddlers’ just a few years ago. And look at them now. Gorgeous and handsome teenagers! Where has the time flown??

One moment, we were all kids, playing hide-and-seek behind moss-covered white-washed buildings. Our parents were young and strong, and would yell at us, telling us to ‘finish our homework’ otherwise they would ‘kill us’. The babies of the apartment complex would suck their thumb, being carried around by their mommies, as they hung out the clothes to dry in the hot sun. Like somebody has pushed a fast-forward button, all of a sudden, here we are. Mommies and daddies ourselves, shouting at our kids now, ‘to finish studying before we kill them’ 😉

Every time I visit home, the ‘kids’ have grown some more. Every time, I make the same mistake of asking them ‘which class are you in now?’ and they give me a look that says ‘Duh! I’m doing my Engineering’ or ‘Old hag! I’m working, didn’t you know?’ 😈 Kids who once ran around the complex in just a little white banian and chaddi 🙂 (Aww, how cute!!) now put up pictures in the most gorgeous attires, making me wonder – When did they grow up?

But do you know, what the scary part is? If they have grown so much, then .. er .. gulp .. have I grown older too???? The thought psyches me out. Honestly, I don’t think a day older than 20. Now, if only we were blessed enough to ‘look’ as young as we ‘think we are’…. ah, won’t that be bliss.

So, here on this cheery note, I wish you a wonderfully happy new year. Also chanced upon this awesome post, please do read!!

‘The truth is, there’s no better time to be happy than right now. If not now, when?’

55-er Short story

Truth and Peace (55-er)

His eyes followed her longingly. She flitted away. His heart ached. Ached so much, that it jolted him out of his recurring dream.

Awake, he turned towards the woman sleeping beside him. The soft snores of his children in the next room. This, was his truth.

He sighed, wondering when he would find his peace.

Friday Frolic

Bought this little Cartoon track train for the brat today. And this is what was printed on the box:-

‘hi! be possessed of the cartoon track train by yourself! new cartoon styles, some colours!’

And if that isn’t enough, read the ‘Special Function:

‘Magnetism connect! Car and car a magnetism conjunction!’

Needless to say, ‘Country of Origi-h: China!’

Anybody, please to be willing to helping me please contact in email! 😈 😈 😈
