As THEY sow, so WE Reap!

As they SOW,















So WE Reap!
















How far have the women in India come forward to claim their rights?


If anyone had asked me this question last week, with complete ignorance I would have replied. " A lot" . My vision of women empowerment or independence for this matter has been narrowly restricted to the confines of my upbringing, school, college and work place, where I should not deny that women have been treated with respect and dignity.
I for one have always been from childhood, extremely sensitive about the equality of men and women and would never leave a stone unturned to make my point clear to any male chauvinist I happen to encounter.

But fortunately or rather unfortunately, I happened visit my Native village, and a couple of other villages around it and Man was I shocked by the way women behave( NOTE: i did not mention men ill treat the women. cos that is the bitter truth) I was extremely saddened by the plight of these women who are brought up in a place, where they cant even feel the independence and surely don't lack it.

And I am truly ashamed to say that I could not voice my opinions for the fear of ruining their sentiments and so called culture. what would they think of me ? 'As a independent women showing growth'? No. As a stubborn , arrogant women who lacks respect for men. shortly a female chauvinist. But hey! am not one. I speak about equality.


When will these women realize they are being walked upon on? why is it that in a construction/ agricultural field they are payed way less than that of men, even though they work and toil themselves equally if not more than men?

These are almost the first generation of women who went to WORK. Sadly, it is we who have fed on what they have toiled hard to produce who speak of equality, feminism and everything while they are not even sure they exist?

This is not a plea or a disgrace. This is just an eye opener for me! :-(

The Blind Date!


He was off to the latest blind date. He dabs some perfume and looks at the mirror, just a glance. He walks swiftly with strong strides to reach the other end of the room to retrieve his wallet and car keys. He would be damned if the girl was JUST another pretty face. He trusted his friend, but off lately since his marriage, he has been trying to hook him up with every possible girl. He knew it was time to settle down. He was ready. A prestigious job, along with his dark muscular frame, not to forget the bank balance, made him an ideal candidate for most girls. But he wanted something more. What was it, he never knew! still he was confident to find it out soon. As he went out, the sun shone brightly, momentarily glazing his view. What a bright sunny evening he thought, as he glided into the leather seats of his sleek sports car. His mind was blank. No anticipation anymore he thought to himself. If it is supposed to happen, it will happen with HER.

She was nervous. She was not the one to go on a blind date. Her best friend has insisted knowing she rarely took time out for herself. Her words echoed in her mind, as she tried on the outrageously revealing gown. "He is one saucy dish. am sure you wont regret the date even if it did not go ahead" She never had time to buy clothes that would fit for occasions. She was in good shape, yet she felt so uncomfortable in the deep neckline of the gown. She decided to change. Oh dear god it is just a date, why am I getting paranoid, she mentally scolded herself and reached out for her comfortable jeans. She saw the kurta sent by her mom on her dressing table. Not too classy but comfortable. she quickly showered and changed. The mascara, lip gloss was all she needed for work. Now she added the lipstick and eye liner. She took out the ear rings, she preferred the long ones. It suits me, she thought with a smile. There was a knock on the door.

Will the pain go away?


She sat looking at the older woman, in the couch which had seen better years. There was a coffee stain at one edge which appeared fainter but bigger due to the attempts of cleaning, there was a few stitches cleverly crafted in the cushions to make it look like designs rather than torn out parts. She remembered the day it was brought, it was on her 9th birthday. It looked so new and shiny. It could accommodate the constant praises of all people and the weight which it bore gracefully. She could now this second, relate the couch to the older woman, who had been as graceful years back. Now there were lines on her near perfect face. There were scars which could never be healed in her mind. Yet, she was always ready to give and share. Her love astonished her.

Now as she sat there thinking, how is she going to reveal herself of the pain. She knew talking to her would help. But if there was something eating her mind, she knew her MOM would be glad to hear and sort it for her. But this was terrible. Every living second she was being eaten by millions of cells. It was not the Physical pain of the disease but the mental agony of the news she received which had shattered her. The reports declared adinoma carcinoma. And her life had changed that day. Now she wanted to reach out to the older woman and hug her. Will the pain go away?



Hey guys, this is my first attempt at Fiction. Please let me know how I can improvise?

Ten Commandments


To realize the value of one year: Ask a student who has failed a final exam.
To realize the value of one month: Ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.
To realize the value of one week: Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.
To realize the value of one hour: Ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.
To realize the value of one minute: Ask the person who has missed the train, bus or plane.
To realize the value of one second: Ask a person who has survived an accident.
To realize the value of one millisecond: Ask the person who has won a silver medal in the Olympics.


but have we ever stopped to Realize the VALUE OF OUR LIFE?

Ask me or anyone who has lost their dear ones. It is an excruciating Pain through which you live the rest of your life. But I guess once you realize that you aren't immortal, you learn to live life in a more simple and meaningful way.

I for one, have had very deep suicidal intentions for most part of my early years. But now I consider it a SIN. Try to understand the minute you are born, you are walking towards death. It can strike you anytime, any day! You should know what a precious gift life is to us and make a meaningful life, so that you don't regret on your deathbed.

I just wanted to tell a few things, which might make you at least think if not execute them. So here goes my TEN COMMANDMENTS FOR LIFE!

1) Every Second of your life is precious. - You never know what may hit you tomorrow!
2) Live life the way you want and NOT the way people want to see you. People come and go out of your life all the times. So be original, no use being a copy cat.
3) Love ever, Hate never. After all what is the use of being angry with a friend or foe for long? So Forget and Forgive!!
4) Spread Kindness and Happiness. - Do the best you can, try to make ONE person smile a day and trust me, the feeling is priceless.
5) Never betray or hurt a person intentionally. - Ruining someone else happiness is SICK! So LIVE and LET LIVE!
6) Convey your LOVE TO YOUR LOVED ONES. Don't regret later about not showing your LOVE! If you aren't that good at words, try a HUG or a KISS!
7) Don't fret about your sorrows - it is a part and parcel of life. Else life will become boring, and HEY! by fretting you loose one day of your precious life.
8)Spend as much of time as possible with your loved ones - Life isn't just for running behind money or career. The money and career is for you to enjoy and share with loved ones!
9) Enjoy the simple things in LIFE. MONEY IS NOT EVERYTHING - When was the last time you counted the stars or viewed a sunset?
10) And Last but not the least LOVE YOURSELF - actually this must have been my first point, if you don't love yourself, the other points are baseless.

LIFE IS A GIFT. Once you loose it, there is no way you can get it back!

Tribute to....Ahhh MYSELF ;-)




You think you know me?
Too bad Honey, I HAVE CHANGED FOR BETTER!
You think I believe that you care for me?
Too bad Honey, ASK IF I CARE!
You think I still Love you?
Too bad Honey, THINK AGAIN!

Yet, am indebted and grateful to you,
YES! For dumping me, for insulting me,
For you have shown me to LOVE myself!

I was astounded as to why,
I was so hung up on YOU!
The cold realization dawned up on me,
Late but better than NEVER!

I can blame it only on my sheer stupidity,
I was craving and starved for LOVE,
I never Loved myself back then!!!!
I was too much in Love with a selfish person,
Who couldn’t give me ONE ounce of LOVE
When my whole world revolved around you!!

I do feel cheated and betrayed,
But HEY, I blame only myself.
That ought to cool your FROZEN HEART!

You know what irks me even now?
The way you wear the ANGEL MASK!
The way you portray yourself to the world,
Of what a kind hearted soul you are??
Nay! Try your luck with some other chick!
For I have moved way far!

I did not ask for gifts, outings!
All I asked was to be LOVED BACK!
And DUHHH it took me half a decade,
To know what you really wanted.

I hardly remember the good times,
Was there just a handful?
And I almost gave up my life for you?
Sheesh what a pity!

I declare now, My LOVE is long lost.
My LOVE has failed, but not ME!
So THANK YOU for letting me GO!

The Proposal...



As she lays confused about the conflicting emotions,
She takes her phone, clutching on to it,
As if her life depends on the Picture she sees
She starts kissing the phone, unable to reach beyond,
A far away expression mixed with longing etched on her face!
For it is HIM, who is the reason for her happiness!

She is torn by the war raging on her mind.
Too attached to her parents, to go against them
Unable to forget the proposal
Not once, not twice, HE did it again and again.

HE knows, she knows, the end is nearing,
Neither can they believe, nor accept the path of their destiny
Is it sheer stupidity or the love blinding them?
Is there a difference? She asks herself softly.
Only to hear herself crying inside.

Amidst the happiness, there is sadness
Sadness cos both know the Proposal aint enough
Sadness cos she hurts for him and he for her
Sadness cos she is deeply in Love
Sadness cos she said NO!

Apology to my loved ones!



Pain says give me more!
Heart never learns; a gazillion mistakes;
The story of my life!

As I gaze deep into myself
All I can see are the flaws and some more,
The realization brings in another painful stroke
Of the days bygone, by numerous fights
With friends and foes alike ;
Am I really fit enough to go on?

All I do is give back pain
From the people who shower their love
What a worthless life I lead?
Totally ashamed and embarrassed
To realize my true self!

Life will go on, but the mistakes haunt!
I realize with a coldness in my heart
Apologies are for people who learn
But do I ?

With the physical pain taunting my existence
Of the organ corrupted
I feel bad about the numerous times
I tried to give up on my life!
Resulting in sheer physical pain!
Who do I apologize to?
Myself for being the biggest idiot?

The people for whom I could have died for
Are long gone, leaving me with the pain;
Now I am scared to accept the physical flaw!

Was it something wrong with me all along?
I cry a river inside! Knowing the answer
But never having the guts to accept it
Coward is what I am today!

This is for the people who love me
For my flaws, for the child inside me
A million apologies for the hurt and pain
Caused by this reckless mind!
Even if I am not with you
Remember that I always loved you!


I have no clue why am apologizing for! I am just a little disturbed and wrote crap ! :|

ACROSTIC POETRY :)



Kindling the deepest passions in me,
Untangling me from my miseries,
My beloved Sweetheart;
Alluring my fears, comforting me,
Ready to be with me forever and ever!
I am spellbound by the affection,
Lovingly over showered on me,
Oh! Am I high or is it your love?
Viewing the future, through your eyes,
Eternity seems seconds away!
You are the one for me, my dearest!
Or life seams as bleak as the past,
U are my everything!

This is just a start LOL. Appreciate the effort people ;-) I plan to write a better one soon, but will do on the same topic so that you can play the critic hehe..

Budday Bash updates!!

I know am too late on updating this budday bash but damn work and my newly found *ahem ahem* is keeping me busy 24*7 ;-) LOL

Anyway here goes the updates


May 7th

I started getting calls from my sleepy friends who couldn't wait till the clock struck 12 or the sick ones and also the working ones to wish me sooner rather than later on my special day. I had to manage the phone calls and it was damn difficult having two phones :P *i know am blowing my own trumpet, but hey!! I was the princess for the day :) *
I was on call till 2 AM and then forced myself to sleep , as I had to work on my budday *I know Sad :P)


May 8th ...the D DAY!!

The had a wonderful start as my mom hugged me and wished me :-D *the wonders a mothers hug can do for an already special day...WOW I was already on cloud 9 !!*

and then a few of my friends called me before i could get ready for work *it made me late for work but what the heck :P*

Then I went to work and CUT A BLACK FOREST CAKE with my colleagues and had cake smeared all over me * good to know, i can still be treated like a kid :-D*

PS: the cake vanished in thin air before i could have a third helping ;-) :-D :-P

And then I had to wrap up my work by 12:30 and rush back home for my second budday bash with my family, in between calls and work, i somehow managed to get out by 12:30 and reached home by 1 .

Drools my Black forest Cake !! =p~



At home there was another huge black forest cake waiting for me , i even had a tiara hehe....adorning my tiara to emphasis that am a true princess LOL i walked triumphantly to cut my cake with an audience in the number of THREE haha , it was just my mom, my bro and my another BRO RAM ...it was so chweet and simple, i cut the cake again and took my family out for lunch and MAN was I hungry , i hogged like a pig.

Look at the princess ;-) :P




The sweetest family affair !! :)




The princess finally poses...hows my tiara by the way *Ahem Ahem* :P




after this I and ram went out and bought myself my SUNGLASSES back *that a long story will explain later hehe* and then started packing for my adventurous romantic weekend ;-)

I spent some time with my family after long amidst my hectic work and felt very very happy :) then i left for my trip to the mangrove forest !!


May 9th

Here we are an hour away from the mangrove forest and I am too excited by the extension of my birthday to such a beautiful place. I know I cant explain the beauty of this place , so let me just try ...this place is like 3000 acres of backwater and the whole place is surrounded by beautiful trees which looks like huge gigantic shrubs and it is a marvel that these trees grow in salt water. we had to go boating in these waters for 4 hours to reach the beach where the water ends....and MANNNNNN that is the most beautiful beach I have ever seen so far. the sand was glittering ...and since not much people come here (as the only way to go there is by boat) it was isolated from human beings and clean and Perfect. I bought home some SAND , as i was too mesmerized by seeing such pure and glittering sand. and again the sand did not look like lumps as we normally see, but it looked like waves as the water keeps going in and out of the beach. Boating was simply a pleasure and worth sooo much , am glad i went here . especially the place where the boat can hardly go but we are surrounded by a natural tunnel made of these mangrove trees ! I know am not making a very good impression of what i saw, but trust me I cannot, you should see this place to experience it ! I was irritated even to take these pictures, as i wanted to take everything IN at first sight. And i realized one more thing. LOVE at first sight happens for sure with NATURE lol :P ...here is a small collection of pictures from my album to make sense of the above blabbered place LOL :P

We are all set to go in the BOAT :-D :P Oh yeaH , I forgot Motor boats are not allowed as they will spoil the beauty of this place and that is competely justifyable.



Lookie the mangrove trees!! :) This is the path we traveled in...beautiful aint it ??



The path with a natural tunnel!! look we are surrounded by these shrubbery



One more of my Fav pics...look at the sun creeping in at the other side



Our mini TITANIC moving along with the grooves :P




Natural tunnel to protect thy skin LOL




We are moving along awaiting for more scenic beauty


Can you believe this is the path our comparatively huge boat has to go through to view this??



Anyway this is me and my long overdue birthday update :)


Love always
ME

Fossil woods :: Expedition number THREE!!!





My next expedition was to an archeological site. I had been wanting to visit this place since I heard about it. No prizes for guessing who enlightened me about this place LOL *Blush blush* :-D

This place is near to Pondicherry. So here I was with one hardly free day MAY 1st on Laborer's day all planned to see the wood fossils of Tiruvakarai. I had to leave by 7 AM (SO sad but def'ly worth it :P). The bus stand really irritated me and almost spoiled my mood, when a cranky fully crowded bus came up, I made up my mind to go for this bus, cos standing in the bus stand wasn't fascinating me in the least. So even though the ride was extremely horrible, i had the pleasure of being seated on the engine right next to the driver hehe. It was kind of fun ;-).

We reached Pondicherry around 11 and then got an vehicle to go to Tiruvakarai. But bloody office can't leave an lady alone to have fun right? they called me 2-3 times and asked me to come to office. Here I am almost 4 hours away from Chennai and they expect me to leave my expedition to go and work for them !!!! Duhh I had better plans. Even though I had to waste almost an hour convincing them that I would be back by evening and work, I had the satisfaction of scolding my HR for trying to drag me on a holiday and that too on laborer's day. ;-D

Anyway the drive was almost an hour and I visited a chicken farm on the way and then reached this place.

Hey look at this cute little Chick ;-)



We keep going Qwack Qwack Qwack :P




Man was i dumb founded, the rock fossils no way look like stone, they look like wood pieces scattered around only. But when you touch them you can feel the texture of the stone rather than wood. This region in and around teh fossil park has these wood barks scattered all around in the natural scenery and you will be amazed as I was to know that, they are 20 million years old. I was so intrigued by the fact that I wanted to snap some of my pictures with these fossils , cos I will be long gone but the fossils will still be there in the same place for years and generations to come.

When I came back, I googled some of the information about this place but sadly even though this is almost an marvel, there are not much people who know about this place or much promotion for this wonder. All i could manage to get was this


"It's the only Petrified Forest in India. Other petrified wood forests are in Santa Cruz, Argentina, National park in northeastern Arizona, Lesvos (Greece), Curio Bay (New Zealand), and Nová Paka (Czech Republic). Southern Alberta in Canada has the largest petrified forest in the world, covering thousands of kilometers.

Petrified wood is a type of fossil where all the organic materials are replaced with minerals (silicate such as quartz). It is amazing to note that the original structure of the wood is retained. The petrification process occurs underground. When mineral rich water flows through the sediment, it deposits minerals in the plant's cells. The plant's lignin and cellulose decay away and a stone mold forms in its place. The wood is preserved due to lack of oxygen. Elements such as manganese, iron and copper in the water give petrified wood a variety of color ranges. The wood fossil at Thiruvakarai was brown in color which shows the presence of iron oxide. Petrified wood preserves the original structure of the wood in all its detail. Structures such as tree rings can be seen with the naked eye.

People who visit South India should not miss this petrified wood forest. One can travel from Chennai to Pondicherry or Chennai to Tindivanam. Thiruvakarai is located between Tindivanam and Pondicherry. It is better to get down at Mylam and then go to Thiruvakarai."




Welcome :P !!



One of the Huger Fossils lying around!




One of the longer ones!! Imagine how mighty it might have looked 20 million years back :O



These looked kind of kewl, and they were among the first which captured my attention!



Can you believe this is a fossil aka Stone??



My Foot Prints on a fossil!! b-)




I will be long gone, but be sure you remember me after a million years ;-)




Cute small ones!!



Anyone who wants to know more about this place, do let me know, I will be more than glad to help you see 'an one of of a kind' PLACE .


Isn't it amazing that these wood fossils have survived for so long? But trust me this is a place which is a must visit and am very very glad that I could go and view them. I wouldn't suggest you to go from April - June as the heat is too high , the rainy season would be more preferable .


Come what may , this was truly one of the amazing trips of my life.

PS: I have a lot of my birthday pictures and will update you on that soon. watch this place for my visit to the MANGROVE forest in INDIA, ranking second only after Sunderbans :)

Crocs bEwArEeeEE!!



Dearest readers,

Well Well Well …Looks who has been traveling around, too busy to even update their blog.

After 6 months of depression, hatred, love, pain, loneliness, someone is finally back in the track towards happiness. As you all had the patience to endure my poetic musings, I would now love it if you could bear with my constant jabbering about my various traveling expeditions because that what I intend to do for the next couple of weeks :-P

I already went to Jail, as you all know from my previous post, the next expedition was to the crocodile bank. And Mann was it fun ? :-D . I had tons of fun watching the crocodiles ( don’t think duhh what a geek :P) cos I have always been fascinated by these beautiful species which has withstood natures hardest terrains and climatic changes to survive along with us. I have heard that crocs have been around since dinosaurs were around. That makes them mighty special innit?

Anyway apart from viewing these species of all types and sizes, there were three things which fascinated me the most.

1. The croc aquarium. Yeah, you heard it right. This one is like you can watch the crocs from the top and also from a glass under the water, to have a glimpse of these creatures hardly a feet in front of you and in their territory..WATER! Have a look as these three crocs beautifully swim across in front of me while the hugest one just lies down silently.

Oh my goodness, they look like floating angels. If only they weren’t so dangerous *sighs* :P


2. The next thing which captivated my attention was this huge pen, where there are more than 100 crocs for sure ( PS: I counted till 100 hehe:-D) . As I was awed by watching so many of these deadly ones, right infront of me, there comes the care taker reading my mind. He came up to me and asked, do you wanna feed them? 60 rs/ KG. I am like Whoa! Definitely. Am not missing on this one :P
3. Lalala last but not the least, try not to get disgusted, but I actually held a baby croc (Itz 2 years old or rather two years young by the way ;-) ) for more than 2 minutes. Can you believe it ? I cant haha !! =))

video

This one was so slimy, I was feeling eeewww, but still I felt a sort of foolish pride to hold such a dangerous species in my hand :P the care taker said even though its small its bite can cause blood injuries and unless you have a good grip on its neck, the chances of he biting me is way too high :P , that could not stop me too ;-) . I held it and almost kissed it (Yeah right! ewww again ) but was kinda scared cos if he kisses back, I would have to loose my lovely lips haha !! LOL

video

I also had the opportunity to hold a baby python but sheesh they are so slimy, I could have puked right there ! (Don’t Ask me why I Did not puke for holding the croc. He was amazing :P)

Hope you guys are not bored by my expeditions, cos I sure as hell am not ;-) . I have some plans for some great places. But bull shit work is keeping me from enjoying myself. Whatever the heck am gonna continue my expeditions and update them as and when time permits.

Love

Seno !!

My 50th post Yay!! My Visit to JAIL!!



I am very proud of my blog today for hitting an half century finally after 3 years of turmoil LOL ! I have become an active blogger very recently, so I hope I can keep up with the pace of updating it as I did it for the last few months.

Anyway coming to the topic,

Today's topic is nothing but a description of ONE of the best days in my life since a very long time. I don't mean to say I wasn't having fun, but being in pure Bliss and having fun are two totally different things and I was fortunate enough to understand and enjoy it last Sunday. :-)

I went to CENTRAL JAIL (lol) last Sunday, and before you make your assumptions, I will try to enlighten you with my little knowledge about the place. The Chennai Central jail was built during 1850's and today I prefer to call it a Monument. This monument which has sheltered so many criminals and freedom fighters alike is going to be broken down to pieces. So the government has made this open for PUBLIC. finally something good from our government I would say! ;-) and i was intrigued to see the place where so many famous and notorious people have been.

I went with someone special *wink wink* which made it doubly special. ;-)
We spent the entire afternoon going into every cell and i tried to find the bits and pieces of art work left by the prisoners. It is really kinda spooky or weird feeling to be in the place where criminals were and to think how depressed even they were in such a suffocating place. I personally would not recommend it to anyone of you LOL!!

There was an eerie feeling in lot of the cells, as if the person who stayed there had lost their soul and only the body was waiting for the release. I have no clue what they were really thinking, but I could see HATE, LOVE, DEPRESSING graffiti s all over. I managed to click a few with my low pixel camera cell, so I don't promise you a visual treat :-D , but I just wanted to share some of the pictures with you guys. And in this post I would prefer for the pictures to do all the talking rather than me as a significance to my 50th post.


This is how depressing I would have got, had i been there :P



Can you see the criss crossed calender of a soul craving for freedom or counting his days?



One of the blocks in the Jail...sends shivers down my spine thinking of the people who stayed there :|



Can you believe, they call this a storage place, and before i forget, its not for the prisoners but for the men in uniform *rolls eyes*



Lord Murugan Graffiti ... Spirituality has no bounds!!



An extension of the Spirituality ...the Holy Cross!!




A graffiti of a enraged woman probably !!





A graffiti of the famous south Indian hero turned politician MGR !




Weapons!! really???



I wonder how much efforts the prisoner took to make something like this ?!!?



Here comes the Hindu Fanatic again!!



The so called political Wing ! Here the prisons have a lot of privileges comparatively like reading the newspaper or writing * frankly I thought privileges had some other meaning:| *




One of the first Blocks I visited !!




A real cell :: The view from outside!



Oh welcome inside to the doomed world :|




My idea of how depressed one would be in such a cell. Its like am gazing outside craving for the freedom !




And yeah I would like to thank that someone special for giving me one of the most wonderful days of my lives. I am happy all thanks to you, so am dedicating my 5oth post to you. Thank you sooooooo much !! *bows* :)
