Hope you all are doing good!!!!
It’s been a long time .. I was here… and I had been planning to bounce back with something.
Today being the 1st anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, I thought of writing something to give a tribute to all the martyr’s who fought, who helped/saved other’s or say our life.
A Big thanks to all these wonderful people.
Last year, I was not as usual.. so came home early and at night … as I was not sleepy.. was going through all channels… when they showed some news about a gang war between two groups in the Leopold Café. I got hooked up to the news and the news took a big U turn…from Gang war it changed to terrorist attack and soon… from Cama..Taj..trident …Nariman House..CST…how ATS chief Mr. Hemant KarKare ..was getting ready in front of my eyes… to face the challenge… then I heard after around 15-20 mins was all three Heroes Mr. KArkare..Kamte and Salaskar.. trio death…..all shocking news all together….
The whole operation went for more than 3 days… In front of my eyes… I saw the mighty Taj burning… something all mumbaities always look upto….the rescue operation in Nariman house being the toughest of all… 10 terrorists who brought on such a damage to the country in all ways… more than 165 innocent people lost their lives…
1 terrorist Ajmal Kasab was caught alive…..
This Year: Still trial going on for Ajmal Kasab.. Don’t know.. how many more years it’s going to continue… People who lost their loved ones.. still grieve for their loses…
And Has our Government learnt any lesson from it….. can we be sure that .. 26/11 won’t repeat again…It’s true that everyone fought with all their efforts to save people and property last year…but this situation could have been averted.. had they seen it coming….
Are we safe now…??
A news paper reported “The attacks, thought to have been well-planned in Pakistan, meant suspension of peace talks that were on between India and Pakistan. Since then there has just been accusations and counter claims by both countries regarding the attacks, and Pakistan’s commitment in curbing terrorism that is nurtured on its soil. The Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has said that talks between the two neighbors will not restart until the Mumbai attack suspects were brought to justice.”
Is this all what you get … is this an assurance… what do you mean by… attacks….thought..to be planned…??
Suspension of peace talks……we don’t want any peace talks… with such a country…
1 year and nothing has changed much… when will we Learn a Lesson… when….how many more such attacks would we see…. It’s true … Mumbai always bounces back… but what about all those innocent people…
Why are we still insecure?
However… in true sense… I(all Indians) would like to give my(our) tribute to all the martyrs who laid down their lives.. and would like to pay homage to all the people.. who lost their loved ones..
Let’s pray that…we don’t get to see anything like this …again…
Hmmm….. It seems I stopped literally blogging after last valentine, so I chose this day 2 start all again fresh!!
No more lazy sessions… my inspirations also seems 2 bbbbbbbbbb 222222222 lazy 2 blog these dayzzzzz…. 🙂
Well, let me wish you all Happy Valentine’s Day!!!!
Well I know,all would have their own way of celebrating today!!!! Bad thing is all time high Mumbai would be
too low with festive mood this time…..coz of all d 1st page newssssssssss(read newspapers 🙂 )
But then letzzz hope today things make a bigggg difference and we all unite together and njoy 2day!!!
Talking of Valentine’s Day!!! all must b having some or the other memories of this day.
I remember, when I was in school, then I didn’t know if such a day existed.
Well, you can say I was ignorant. But these days what I see is most of the children, know most of the things.
My chote cousins,niece,nephew keep telling how valentine’s day is coming and what they are planning.
Would sound strange, when I was in 9th or 10th, many of our group friends wished us, Valentine’s day and I didn’t actually
understand what they meant.
I went home and normally I don’t approach mom or dad directly, but that day I didnt get my siblings, so I kept pestering my mom about the day and she told me about the man called Valentine and the story(in short) behind the day!!!!
But then I didnt find her explanation, much to satisfy me, so I went through the newspapers which carried way lot of info about the day 🙂
Well, I was not the only ignorant person 🙂 ………………..that evening, I called up my frnds(whoever didnt know abt the day) and gave them as much info I understood then from the newspaper 🙂
So frankly speaking, I saw this day as a more of a holy day because of Saint Valentine.
And then I have a cousin brother whose b’day falls on the same day.
We all cousins made up a point to wish him Valentine’s Day and not B’day on this day!!!!
He used to get so much irritated with this, that he used to hide his b’day from his frnds 🙂
But we had gr8 fun….we still maintain the same way!!!! but now it doesn’t seem to affect him 🙂
All in one!!!! HAPPY VALENTINE’s DAY to all
Do njoy!!! give away gifts,flowers and mainly try to reach/contact your loved ones and hey last but not the least…. 🙂 wish me 🙂
I had been a lot lot lot lazy and I dint post anything …… L .but I will try to be a lot more sincere towards my blogging from now on J .I just got a funny stuff to read…and I felt it quite true…….It’s something what I noticed in my life…..and in my frnd’s too We think and try to live in past when present is in front of us…… and when present becomes past…..still we have the same feeling…… I liked this stuff ..I hope you also would like it too…. J
Disclaimer : Again a romantic story with work of fiction.
I got a rose 2 days before valentine’s, but I never thought about this before.
I took the rose not bothering at all why he was giving me one..but then I like roses..I don’t remember..if I ever cared who gave me one..I was only concerned on having them 🙂
But it seemed he was saying something…but I was so happy to see the fresh orange roses..that I never heard what he said…
Yes they were small & big fresh orange ones and not the red ones one give for each occasion…
White for peace…Red for love ….Yellow for friendship…what does a Orange signify then ???
May be that’s why I really wanted to know why someone gave me those roses…I thought I should call this guy and thank him well for giving me those beautiful orange roses …I don’t remember if I really thanked him then 😦
But before I called up, I got a call from him …asking me how I felt about the orange roses…I took full advantage of the chance I got and thanked him well enough and tried hearing what he wanted to say this time (only because even I wanted to hear this time 🙂 )
He quickly called for a coffee at Cafe coffee day after college ….This was the first time even when I was looking forward for meeting this guy !!
And I didn’t know the reason..??? Was his orange roses making me do this 🙂
I don’t know…but I was nervous..but why ..I had known this guy for a long time… and why was this meeting so important to me now..that I wanted to be perfect. …oh these orange roses seemed to had some magic….
It was one day before valentine’s day …and here I was with this guy at Cafe coffee day …I was late…. and he was waiting for me
I was conscious for the first time in my life and he seemed to notice that and so he tried to keep me at ease…
We talked about every bit of news (which we can any time get from any newspapers 🙂 ) …but still that changed the enviornment around me
I seemed to like this guy…..but still I wanted to ask him….why he chose to give me orange roses…but I never got a chance..But really those orange roses had done some jadoo on me….I was listening all the time and not talking..which never happens 🙂
Finally, our coffee mugs were empty and it was time for us to move ….he offered to give me a ride to my place and I immediately accepted it.. 🙂
When we reached my destination….he told me he was flying tonight to delhi.I knew somewhere I was upset….but why…I never really ever tried to think what others felt for me..I tried to be normal and wished him Valentine’s day in advance and a safe journey….but all this time…some unknown feelings were coming up and were telling me to stop him from going tomorrow.
I quickly went back home..not because I wanted ..but because I wanted to see him off…from my window..I looked at him ..hiding myself in between the curtains …oh no he is going… 😦 should I stop him…but why should I ??
I looked at the orange roses..they still looked fresh…I had neatly kept them in a flower pot with a little water in it..to keep them fresh…
Are you doing all this with me??….I felt like asking the orange flowers which kept looking at me …
Tomorrow was a big day in college…As usual I would get a lot of red roses…and also would give away a lot of them to my friends …
But I was not able to sleep. I kept thinking about this guy.I knew him from so long…he used to stay in our colony..but we were never friends…but we used to meet eachother in some or the other occasions..and I always shared just a hi hello.
He shifted to delhi along with his parents sometime back..which I never knew.But I remember I had asked someone about his disappearance..He had come here for some work and was returning back.Oh no, I even didn’t take his email id..I really felt bad about this 😦
I overslept and got up at 9.00..but my college classes was at 10…so I quickly started getting ready forgetting everything what I had been thinking off.
I reached college intime…met the same friends..same day…same roses…
Finally I was happy the day ended and started off for my home…Someone called me up….and I was in no mood to take any more of Valentine’s day celebration…I looked back to see him walk upto me with a bunch of orange roses..I was happy as well as surprised to see him…what was he doing here why didn’t he go…and why is he back with one more bunch of orange roses….
He quickly wished me…and gave me the roses….but this time I wanted to hear what he wanted to say….
“I know you want to know..why I am here …because I love you and had been loving all these years but I never had the courage to come up to you and express my feelings ..I always tried to be with you..but it seemed you never noticed me ..but today I couldn’t go without telling you ..what I feel for you..and I know one expects Red roses on a Valentine in place of Orange …well according to me Orange signifies friendship & love and for me both your friendship & love is precious and important. I don’t want to lose either of them.
Slowly he said “Would you be my Valentine ?”
I didn’t know if I heard properly..because I was waiting for him to tell this and I shouted with joy “Yes…Yes”
Hi friends… long time…back again….
Well for long time.. 1 reason was …. I wanted all of u to read my story and comment …. 😀 kidding!!!
Well,reason was ‘I didn’t find time’ .
This clause is something I don’t understand myself.
When I look back to my childhood…then this word was never in our dictionaries ‘I didn’t have time’ .
Where has time gone? where ?
Well…we will come to that later.
Let me tell you something I did some time back on a weekend & I am happy for that.
I was coming back from church (our church is quite far away ,we come and go by auto , but today while coming back I didnt find a Auto , so I started walking to the main road which is 5-10 mins from the church) .I had almost reached the main road when I heard someone giving a quick ‘hi’. I turned back to see one of my close pals from my school…whom I had never met after school becoz she shifted from our place and we some how could never stay in touch.
We chatted a long time there itself …………
I was so happy to see her…she added quickly ‘chal come home, it’s quite near, you just have to walk the same way you came here “ofcourse if you have time“‘
‘If you have time’ question started moving in my head, besides walking all the way at around 12:30 afternoon made things difficult for me. I was in two minds 😦
– 1 was ‘take her mobile no, call her & plan to meet (which planning itself would take weeks ) and take a auto, you have lots of work to be done before your weekend ends and then mom dad will be waiting for lunch’
-2 was ‘comeon you met her after so many days, walk a little, other things can be done later also, abhi go meet uncle , aunty ‘
Well I opted for the second option and I am happy I did that.
We talked all the way about our school days, about our school friends,about our current state.
At her home, aunty was there so she too was happy to see me after a long time,
We all had a good time.In time I got up coz I knew at home mom dad would be waiting for lunch and luckily I got a auto from there too 🙂
I was quite happy to have gone with option 2 , this made me think ….
Do we really have no time or our priorities have changed ?
I know most of us have a busy schedule …………most of us spend most of our life in office…….. 😦 but still…..is it just our busy schedules that eat up our time or something else
What do you think ….Do we really don’t find time ????????? Where has time gone ???
