A Fascinating Delusion

Slept a little extra than my usual. Got up at 10 in the morning...felt sooo good :) The weather outside is amazing, even now! Just love to snuggle up in the bed and look out of my window! Had this crazy dream :P :D

I really dont know what it meant. But then its like this only, often dreams dont have any meaning or do they?. I have this fuzzy image of what happened. So it goes like this...

It was around 11 in the morning, was raining(could say was drizzling). I was walking down a street , enjoying the tiny dropplets on my face. Across the street i met 2 0f my friends. Three of us, were busy catching up, i guess because we met after a pretty long gap! then's when we reach this joint where we used hang out(dinginess around) in our schooling years. Unlike before, no one was there. But we were not bothered! Continued our chats... By then it was all dark, a beautiful dark(at 12 in the morning). Thats when i get out of the place, dunno where my friends were. I was walking on a path(not so nicely done), greenery everywhere. It was so quiet, so serene. I love the way it feels, when it gets dark in the day time. Nothing moves during this period, the
only noise you can hear is that of the little drops of rain. The buildings visible around seemed to be the remains of a really old city. Suddenly, I happened to see the moon(but wasnt it noon?). Then all of a sudden i remember the fact there was going to be an eclipse today...

But how come the moon was visible? Isnt it the moon that obscures the sun during an eclipse?
what the hell was it?

10.05 am

daddy: Parul, utho!

And then i realise, all of it was a dream! :P :|

A shady light coming in from the window of my room, birds chirping, you can smell the wet mud... :) it was all blueish gray outside, like u have photoshopped it to blue gray. No worries attatched!

God knows what was the dream, and what it meant but i'd love to go back to that place wherever it was. Where its an eerie blue forever :)
Wish colud have stayed a bit longer!!

To GARV.. With loads of Love :)

I wonder why I'm so in love with this Little Angel, that my brother was blessed with lately. I'm so very much in awe of him! What a pure soul he seems :) Feel like he deserves this post more than anyone.

It was 3.30 p.m. on the 13th of June. I distinctly remember all that afternoon, I had been watching re-runs of FRIENDS(managed to lay my hands on the first 5 seasons or so). My landline telephone rang, and the lazy a** I am, I did'nt even feel like answering the phone as I was reclining easy on the sofa :P But then evetually, thought of answering the call or else Mom would'hv been mad at me! To my surprise, it was my brother on the other side, from the hospital. He was like "I'm a father Parul, and you a bua!". It was least expexted at that time. There was this sudden rush of emotions within. I'm generally not known to be too emotional, but that day I dunno why there was this immidiate tear trickling down my eye. I still dunno why that happened. I could sense nervousness in my bro's voice. (Even now after, almost 22 days he is scared of picking the boy up). I congratulated him and passed on the phone to my mum (Thought that was the best thing to do at that time, I usually take time to express my feelings). So, another Gemini was born. It was my mum's birthday on the 12th. Double celebrations :D

Was pretty excited, and could'nt contain the excitement within. Told a few close freinds about it. I had never seen a-day old baby before. After that, we rushed to the hospital to see that all was well with mother-son duo, and with god's grace it was! My brother was blushing.. teehee :D About my brother, I'd like to say that he has always been there for me, since I was a kid myself. I share this special bond with him. Never, felt the need of a real brother. Coming back we were supposed to wait outside the nursery. After an hour or so, the little one was brought to my bhabhi's room. When I saw him first, could'nt stop staring at him and beleive me could'hav done that the entire time. Was quiet apprehensive initially to lift him up, but once I did, dint feel like letting him go.

Trust me, I personally dont approve of small children yelling and crying. Earlier used to get annoyed to the core. Used to ask my mom, why the hell are'nt children born 4-5 years old.(Did'nt know the technicalities then). But i guess he has changed my perception. Seems a symbol of innocence to me.

After lots of contemplation, he has been named GARV (what a short and sweet name). Btw was suggested by me.. He is soo cute and has this positive aura around him. Looks awesome when he smiles! He keeps everyone busy, capturing his slightest of movements(Some model in the making..eh?) Does'nt cry much. My Mom tells me, even I was like that. Never gave her much trouble :D. Dunno why, I love watching him, even though he's sleeping most of the time! Hope he inculcates all the good characterstics of his parents, and with me visiting him often thoda bohot mere jaisa ho.. ;)

Lastly, would say he has a fan in me!
Wish God blesses him with all the love and happiness in the world!!

The Way (IT) makes me feel

Now that Michael Jackson is dead, all of a sudden there's this huge bombardment of newspapers and TV channels, Facebook statuses are being constantly updated, people are Twitter-ing furiously, messageboards are flooded -- the Internet is jammed with the outpouring of news and grief! How come suddenly all that sympathy mounting up day-by-day ?

But what of the time when he was alive?

he was seen to as a

  • Child molester
  • Freak
  • Lunatic
  • Unfit parent
  • Bisexual
Thats a lot!! We dont know how much of it all stands true, but we have this habbit of forming opinions based on hearsay. Sad!! This has always happened and will continue to happen...

So we have a short memory, do we?

Nothing new there. The world (including me) has this inclination to crucify the rich and famous and then elevating them to God-like status when their lives are cut short.

Anyways, personally I never could bring myself to believe this eccentric man could have been a sex offender. And there are those who will believe it was the other way round. But whatever your opinion, one thing is undeniable --that he was a legend. His music, his performances and his energy entertained us for over four decades. He is one of the few pop stars that my pea-sized brain can recall since I was a kiddo. Loved his Heal the world!

MJ had a real tragic end, no one still can say clearly how the poor soul died. I hear different theories each day. Faking death being the latest!! I mean, media and people are running their minds wild.

Let him be, is all I can say...
