Love notes from a lost diary… #AtoZChallenge

Dear Diary,

I think I have found love. Cupid has struck me for the first time & I am ecstatic. My heart flutters at your mere sight. I am at loss of words whenever I am around you.  Remember the first day I saw you in class and had stumbled. Your charm had impressed me then and there.

I am hypnotized whenever you pass by me smiling! The way you take my side & care for me…Depth of your eyes & the intoxicating voice…There are butterflies in my stomach and I am too shy to acknowledge it. I am waiting for Valentine’s Day when I would propose you or even you can do that 😉

Yesterday in the music room when we were singing duet my heart was racing. How could you not hear my heartbeats? Maybe you are just trying to be subtle about it. Today everyone in the class was teasing us. Is it just me? Don’t you feel the same? I hope you do.

We already have great chemistry and things would only get rolling. I am hoping after the school ends in two years we would go to the same college. And can stay together there too 🙂

Good Night Diary! Time for dreams…


I am sure you would have also felt same on your first crush. When as a kid you get this happy feeling and the world resolves around just one person.  How did you meet your first crush? Was it a friend or an actor? Do share your stories would love to hear them!

Bride-to-be ! #AtoZChallenge

It’s time to party! Let’s break into dance & continue all night. After all you have found love of your life. It’s your engagement and no one can be happier than me. Just few days more to go! You don’t have an idea of how much I am missing being with you right now. Just to tease you. When I got engaged you had pestered me so much. Oh dear, just wait till I meet you next. Then it will be revenge time 🙂

Time is flying away & you are overwhelmed with emotions. Brother irritating you more than usual & parents pampering you. I know you want to capture every moment. The new relations might sound confusing now, but they will add joy to your life. Cherish these moments coz they last for a lifetime.

Bride to be

Let’s talk about your Mr. Perfect – welcome to the family. He is charming and understands you. You are the storm brewing & he is the calm sea. He will add direction to your chaos. You both are alike yet so different.Alas, he is unaware of what he has gotten into. My wish for him is that he gets all strength to endure you! Mr. Perfect, take good care of my friend.

I have said enough already, now get married soon. Have a joyful life ahead! Love you both 🙂

Short visit to Taj Mahal

The eternal symbol of love – Taj Mahal, white beauty across the bank of Yamuna is a treat for eyes. Majestic, resplendent, awe-inspiring and the list or words to describe it are endless. I got a chance to visit Taj Mahal in last September.

Let’s revisit the history of Taj Mahal. It was built by Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal , completed in 1648 AD. Build by thousands of craftsmen, inspired by Indian, Islamic & Persian Architecture.  All this makes it one of the wonders of the world & also a UNESCO world heritage site.

There are three types of entry tickets depending upon your nationality –

  • Indian citizens
  • Citizens of SAARC and BIMSTEC Countries
  • Foreign national

I am not sure why but the person at ticket window was very suspicious of me being an Indian & was satisfied only after checking my photo id twice.

I had visited it early in the day to avoid too much crowd & the blazing heat. They give you shoe covers to wear at all times. No words can do the justice to sight you see. The Taj Mahal changes colors as the day goes by. From red glow in early morning to the glistening white in the sun shines.  The best of all is how Taj Mahal looks on a full moon night. You need to books your tickets beforehand for it. One should notice the delicate designs on the monument. Each flower is carved out minutely, the holy verses are inscribed. The Grand Gate through which you enter or the red sandstones mosques on the either side. All of these combined leaves you wondering about the excellence used in designing the Taj Mahal.

I was there for around two hours. We walked around the beautiful gardens, clicked some compulsory pose pictures.Visited the central dome where the tomb is placed. The photography is forbidden inside. Spent quiet time looking at the river Yamuna flowing in background. It was a short visit to Agra & time for us to be home bound.home bound.

For the next trip I already have plans to visit Fatehpur Sikri & Agra Fort. Have you visited Taj Mahal yet ? How was your experience ? Do share your story !

The Chosen Ones

You were there when I was trekking at high mountains,
You were there when I was camping in the desert,
You were there when I was enjoying on the beach,
You were there when floods & earthquakes strike,
You were there guarding the Land, Sea & Air.

You are the sons & daughters, brothers & sisters,
You are the ones who leave their families to save ours,
You are the best amidst bests of men & women,
You miss the Diwali, Eid or Christmas celebrations at home,
But your happiness to serve the nation surpasses it all.

Salute to all the soldiers guarding our borders,
You are the true heroes – The Chosen Ones!
