Dilli, meri jaan

कुछ दिल्ली के रंग अब धुंधले हो चले हैं 
कुछ यादें हम पीछे छोड़ चले हैं 
ये यमुना के तीर किसने रेलगाड़ी चलाई 
दिल्ली मेट्रो के नाम से हरियाली बेच के खायी 
अब सूरज भी मेट्रो ब्रिज के नीचे अस्त होता है 
जहाँ हम खेला  करते थे अब वहां शोर मचता है 


Driving past the Mayur Vihar Phase 1 ;Metro station

Tree of imagination


While walking back from school today, waiting on the us stop, V insisted I stand next to a huge and tall tree trunk. When we stood there, back resting on the trunk, he asked me to look up. 
"It's May now, I can see quite a lot of green on the branches. The bus is about to arrive any minute, my bus pass is about to expire. I need to buy cooking oil from ICA, we don't get good brand at the supermarket near home. Mom must be waiting I told her I would be home by 5. M would be at the airport by now, hope he had his lunch......."
"Monster, monster, monster.. mom run.."
I peeped out from the web of worries. The branches of the tree looked a bit like huge hands, ready to pull you up anytime. 
"Mom, did you see, the tree looks like a monster..."
"Yes Bobo. It does!!! And see, if you look from a little far, it looks so beautiful, like a painting. Trees are our friends, they give us......" We boarded the bus.

V's company is like medicine. Or as my mum says - Energy!!

Moma, I love cooking


One of the precious gifts I want to give my son - imbibing gender equality in his mind, behavior and personality. 
Small steps towards it - teaching him how to cook food. Thank God that he loves to be in the kitchen. :)

Andekha anjana koi aane laga khayalo mein


DDLJ after a span of a eighteen long years. 
The same effervescence, same effect, fluttering hearts.. 
Shahrukh Khan!! :D

Dilwale sach mein dulhaniya le jaenge :)

Light to Lighten (#100happydays post 3)

Stacks of books, hundreds of them,
Read, reread, waiting to be read,
I issue two gems, sit on the steps,
Lamp of dreams on the big green wall,
Bougainville twines down the school floors
As I weave the chapters of life, 
In the old library of STS. 

The red and green structure 
Croons in the aspirations and dreams
Welcoming the women power
Well read, well educated, the motto beams
"Light to lighten"

My amazon order which was delivered today, sends me 15 years back, when a dreamy eyed carefree me, used to sit on the steps on my school, St Thomas' (STS), with my favorite books from the school library.
