Enlightened…am not!(Am on the way)

I was on cloud nine

After successfully opening a blog account, and managing to post a few writeups, I was satisfied. (You see, I did it all on my own…no mean feat!) But this smug feeling was not to last long. The day after my tentative start, that’s yesterday, a friend of mine pointed out certain grounds which I have not covered. This friend(father_sphinx, to be precise) frivolously told me that comments to my blog were held for moderation and certain posts seem to be not where they were supposed to be. I was aghast! (P.S. My blog is not allowed to have deficiencies without my knowledge. Please inform.) I immediately asked him for the remedial actions. But alas! He was having a splitting headache and had to lie sleep it off. So…I was left with no choice but to venture out on my own.

expertly clicked on the buttons aligning over the top portion of my account. Then I started. Click-pause-back-click-pause…and it went on. I finally had to admit defeat about an hour later. 😦

Today, I was just checking my orkut account and replying to the familiar names, a new scrap arrived. “OK…I’m free now“. Jumping at the chance, I immediately fired off questions as to how to correct my glaring mistakes. I was shown the path to enlightenment. And…I happily walked up the road.

However, I’m not saying that I will stick to this path. After all, I’m only HUMAN.

Hi there!

Just read a blog of a friend and wonder of wonders, I felt the need(an urge, rather!!) to share my own experiences, opinions,feelings, etc. Here’s to us!

People who often wonder why, who have had encounter(s) with the ‘alien’ are my mates. People who question ‘Why?’ are my companions…

The first time…

Crazy it may seem…but the first time was when I was about 5 or so. My grandfather passed away a year before. It was a sunny day. A light breeze was billowing through my childish locks as I gambolled along with my carefree friends. Suddenly, I was filled with this inner urge, a longing, for what I don’t know. As I lifted my eyes towards the sky, I felt my granpa’s eyes on me and I can almost swear that I saw his benign face etched in the passing clouds. I felt an emotion so deep I don’t know how to describe it. All I remember is that it made me smile. At that moment, it dawned on my innocent heart that wherever I may be, Granpa will always be somewhere close.
