Unrecoverable Loss

Last year on the same day, around this time, me and Mom were already at the hospital. We had to relieve Bg and my BIL, who had stayed there at the night, with Dad. Though Dad’s condition had suddenly gone haywire in the night and his BP had shot up to 200 odd, the guys…

2013 – Curtains Down

It is that time of the year when we reflect on how were the days which went by. I used to do a year-end round-up post on my old blog too. Not following that format I decided to go random in putting down how this year had been for me. Whenever I thought of what…

The Senior Citizen

If you had held on, we would be celebrating your 60th birthday today! We would have had that Shashtipoorthi function that I was planning from the time you turned 59. I wanted to do something for you, in some way to show that I love you, despite fighting with you so much. I wanted you and everyone…

Getting back in action!

The holidays just whizzed past in a blur! While I had sooooooo many plans for what I would do in the break that I was taking, I did none of it! Well.. It’s good in a way because a break is meant for doing nothing and taking it easy. I had some great time, meeting…

A year of togetherness…

Bg and I completed a year of our marriage on the 18th. This had been a long year. A year of responsibilities. Having lost Dad, we had a lot of things to deal with. Though the first year of marriage wasn’t romantic and enjoyable as I was dreaming of, it taught me what’s more essential…

A Beautiful Surprise!

21.10.2013

Yesterday was my Last Working Day at office. Strangely I didn’t feel very sad. I am surprised at this as I am a very emotional person and get attached to people too quickly. If I think about my last day at the previous institute and how much I cried, it feels so kiddish. 🙂 Another…

Bonds and Ties

Though I tell myself not to be biased, to give things more time before forming concrete opinions, I can’t help but think that things are just not the same! It’s different and not in a good way. My opinion of what a family is or should be, is that the people in the family are…

The Lunch Box

We finally made up our mind to take a break and go watch a movie. It had been quite long. Previously whenever Bg asked for a late night movie show, my answer would be a no! My argument was that we had two full days in the weekend and we can go then. But now…

Dear Could-Have-Been-Husband, There are a lot of things I faced because of you. I am not supposed to blame you, as you are totally unaware of the events that occurred post your visit to our house. Yet, sadly I have to vent this out on you! Why am I bringing this up more than a…

Remembering Daddy!

Just when you start getting comfortable with the things in life, it throws totally flipping challenges towards you and you are left stranded, with no idea what to do and how to proceed. Today I have many regrets about the things I have done or the words I have spoken. Now that we have lost…

Lost in the dark

It hurts! And words can’t explain how much! The backbone of our family, my father, passed away last Saturday. Words fail me at this moment. Below are pictures of the flowers which were in bloom the day after he passed away, in his terrace garden that he cared for, like his own child. We miss…
