What do you want to do, Reema?

..Peace.. I want to work for world peace.. Unity..

I really don't understand what you want to do


I'll support you



Miss you dad..
You were, and will always be the only one,
The only one, who I could speak with, from my heart,
The only one, who bothered to ask, what it is I wanted when I myself hadn't known,
The only one, who actually listened at least,
The only one, who despite not understanding, always made me feel your support,
The only one, dad, the only one
And I really miss you..
I miss your presence,
Not for anything else
But the joy that seems to have run out of me
With your absence
With you around, despite anything and everything, I knew I was loved
Even if I didn't know it then
With you around, I lived in abandon, with the strength of your caring presence
Even though I didn't know it then
I see it now
Because I see I am missing something
I am missing your carefree, simple, super-caring towards all, service-for-all attitude,
I miss that space, that allowed me to be so too, freely
I miss the strength of that persona you carried, in being so humbly true
And being so direct and unassumingly innocent
You made a choice
And I respect it
You make me see it differently
And I thank you for that
I know you're there out there
Truly happy
And I can see you smiling that true smile lighting up your being
And I know that somehow you are around and watching out and guiding
Doing things, being here, like you never could before
I see you dad, thank you for the support
A lot of things are getting clear today
It is not the same anymore, after you left
And it has been coming for a while
It's time
For me to venture out now
To fulfill my destiny
With your guidance, in care of the Universe,
I am ready.


Does this bring me closer to Krishna or does it take me away from ..?


Does this bring me close.. :))

Does this.. :)))

D.. :))))

Does this bring me closer to Krishna or does it take me away from ..?


Depends on how you go next


And it drops


Does this bring me closer to Krishna or does it take me away from ..?




And I switch gears


That Stage

Where I can lie down

next to you

leaving aside all cares

of the world

as well as my own

and sleep peacefully

in the cool shade

of the benevolent warmth

of your being



'Pata nahi aaj kal logon ki soch ko kya ho gaya hai..

Ek aurat baccha liye khadi thi aur ek baithi aurat se baithne ke liye jagah maangi
Usne nahi diya baithne!
Aur toh aur, baad mein mujhe kehti hai-
'Mujhe kabhi kisine baithne nahi diya toh main kyun doon humph'

Maine toh bola usko-
'Agar aapko harami mil gaya, uska matlab yeh toh nahi na ki aap bhi harami ban jao?
Waise toh kaafi saari cheezein log karte hain, nahi karte;
Us hisaab se jaoge toh kaise bhi jo aaj yeh duniya chal rahi hai, woh bhi ruk jaaye!'

Pata nahi logon ki soch ko kya ho gaya hai..

Main hamesha sabko baithne deti hoon
Lekin mujhe abhi tak kisine baithne ko nahi bola...'


Fusht Shtandud

Which class are you in?'

I am not in any class
Which class are you in?

'Fusht Shtandud'

Why did you pour out the water?

'I come here to fill my wattter botttle when it getts over'

And he skips along
On his way back
Having me smiling disarmingly
While he turns to look back again
And say goodbye!


A spacious, rather whacky Hall of creativity,
I enter,
And look around..


'Sir!' Tapping him on the shoulder
'She's here to see you'
Sir rises, greets, listens, agrees

'Sir, can I take her to Ma'am?'
And I follow her lead.

'She is busy right now, but she'll be here, you can talk to her'
I thank her, wishing her best for her exams_

A series of moments later...



'Did your work get done?'
Almost, just the final step
How was your test?
'Was fine too' smiling wide

She goes-
Leaving an inspired tune ringing in my heart
For such spontaneous moments of kindness from such!
Such! As little as her~
What initiative and concern!

A name added to my dictionary for all that I may meet
That imbibe an open, generous, sensitive, leader like spirit such as hers

Salute O Lady!

The Process, w/Ech

Hello blog-reader! Welcome again :)

This time, I share with you something whose essence is in process too.
As Ech said it- 'Maybe try the process before you share it'
I'd say she's right and since I just had one such moment (also in process), here we are!

Now what is it that I've been blabbering on about past a whole paragraph? We shall see soon but before that allow me to express a request: This post is a bit vulnerable as it is not fully formed in the strength of its content and more than that, it actually highlights much of my own "anxieties" (for lack of another word) so please do be kind, dear reader, while you sail through it and if you find yourself resonating at places, or have your own story to share, or have experimented with 'the process' or have a way of your own, I'd be glad to hear from you!

You may read on now, I mean, right about NOW:

How are you Ech?

I am good

Your tire has worn off?

I charged yesterday

How did you charge?

How are you?

I find myself in the tire zone on and off,
and I've seen it tied up to my progress/degress at work
and the kind of energies I get from family
Basically I see myself being affected easily
by the swings of life

I know
You need more me time to battle on that

I in fact was thinking about you
How you'd said you were glad to get me time
It stayed with me

Of course
You cannot be spinning around people and things

Very true
Can you share how you go about it?
The funny thing is I've never had such issues before,
As a younger version of me,
I was much much more stable and fortified in some sense
Which probably also kept a lot of things out haha
So I went on an opening up spree
And now having done that, I know that neither is the best
and that I gotta construct a way that perhaps if it is possible
is woven with the best from both


Best would perhaps be what truly makes me feel alive and awake,
what truly works for me..

..Thank you for listening
Been wanting to get this straight for a while now

I agree
How to engage with others but not get affected
It's difficult

Tied up so intricately
How to let yourself not drown in the connection
Can you share with me


The quality of your me time?

I can't share


Because I don't know much about it

I see

We can talk and see

Yes please
Talk please
Me ears

Pressure is on my side

: ]

Now, here's where O dear patient-lovely-compassionate Reader, does gyaan start flowing from an amazing human being I have had the blessing to have known and continue to gratefully engage with now and again. The best thing about her is the straightforward, to-the-point way she conducts herself thus extracting the same from those she meets.

So, here's introducing to you- Ms. Echo Ying Xiang, an Architect by profession, a pragmatic dreamer by temperament, an unassuming person with a fiery spirit and the indomitable will of a Dragon.

Conversations with such a thinker, dreamer, doer and live-r as her are always bound to bring up treasure thus far unseen or hidden and having at least introduced the persona who made this post possible and taking care of the basic dues, let us proceed with the most crucial, most magical portion of this post, that flows so clearly and sharply smooth from her being, as you shall very shortly see:

I think you know it all,
but you are not able to do it
because you don't have the time to stable yourself,
you are tired, and you don't have time to think and consolidate

I feel for what you said

Take everything
but not have the pressure
of you having to accept them or not
Just take them in

Then when you have time, think about it

Or when you feel bothered,
think why you feel bothered

Then you get a place where you stand

Then the difficult step


You'll let it go, or you do something about it


Because most things involve with friends, family, people we care
But you know you can't change them


Not over a short period of time
What can you do
If you start to change them
You'll be bothered again
Because you will fail



Just sneaking a line here, dear Earthmate!
To make sure you did not miss the jazz!
You may go on now~

So then?

So be yourself
Be accepting
Be persistent
And detached
It's not about you or them
You tell what you think
They tell what they think


I am not very confident about last point
As I am not very good at it
Or not at all

I was just going to say
I am not sure I can really do the tell what I think bit

You don't have to

Because there's a long process of even understanding
whether what I think is even "true" or whether it even might matter O.O

In fact don't do most of the time

So at least know for ourselves what we think?

Of course

Without being judgemental or try to smoothen the sharp edges

What you think and what you feel

Being aware.. Hmm
Thank you Ech

You are welcome

And now, as the gyaan trails off leaving us quite enough to chew upon for a while,
O lovely being on Earth!
You may read on, as the topic winds up easing into mutual relief :)

I like the way you spelled out the process, to take everything in
and when we find the time, to think about it

I myself couldn't really do all the things I said

I think I get that, as I barely find myself able
to do most of what may pass from me
But this helps

A sigh just escaped me

Me too

Something inside feels relieved
And let me say
How glad I am
To be able to have this connection

Me too

Thank you Ech!

That's what I shall gently leave you with, fellow being on Earth!
If you may have something to add or an insight you'd like to share, please do so unhesitatingly~
After all, we're all in this together, this adventure on Earth called LIFE!

I especially thank Ms. Echo Ying Xiang, for this precious insolubly progressive moment *

Thank you Echo!
We wish you the best and the choicest of energies to serenade you 
And visit you over and again with all their splendour and magic
Adding more joy to the blissful spark of your being

And, on occasion of Diwali,
I dedicate this post to that light in all of us, that glows bright in shyness as we sneak a glance at it occasionally when reminded of its existence and find to our astonishment, how readily it sits with us in patience and all the suppressed glee, to listen deeply and to respond with its invaluable wisdom from the illuminating sea of radiance it imbibes and holds in itself, that leetle spark in us, oh so humblingly present, and continually enriching our lives with its gifts, its essence, if only we let it ;)


On mention of "Be yourself" as you may have noticed earlier on,
There is a curious note I'd like to share with you-
Something that has stayed with me
And comes to me each time I hear the above quoted phrase,
(not sparing the times I've said it myself)

How simple and true, innit?
There's truly a time, a progression,
That somehow takes care of things as they must be taken care of~

With a sincerely appreciative bow to that nebualic intelligence
Let's rest this post right here,
Right Now.
