26/11 and Beyond!!

Today is 26/11. Two years back, this day time stood still!! We should remember all the heroes who sacrificed their lives for our safety! A salute to all the martyrs of the Terror attack! ! Attached is a photo of the Staircase at Taj which I took on 11th Nov, 2010. Taj stands tall and beautiful - completely unfazed by the terror attack!! As if amplifying the thought loud and clear - that "WE INDIANS" are not ready to be bulldozed by Terrorism! And together we will emerge even stronger every time!! This is the beauty of our Matrabhoomi!!!

About Me ????

Trust me I have been struggling very hard for the last few months to compile the about me section of my blog, my facebook and my twitter accounts.

Every time I have scribed something, I have deleted it – thanks to “Not so satisfactorily” me.

I never had to struggle so much talking about myself than I have now! Everything seems like a distant figment of imagination! Leaving the pertinent question still very much unanswered and open for contemplation.


In my odyssey years, I was addicted to participating in personality contests at intercollegiate level.

Often, one common question would be asked:

Describe yourself in one word.

My by-hearted answer used to be pronto :

VERSATILE – Coz I could dance, act, host shows, write good scripts, compile poems and manage events

Two days back someone out of the blue asked me the same question:

Describe yourself in one word.

Without re-visiting the memories of yester-years, the answer that I gave was so direct dilse that it left me surprised to a certain extent.

I said :

REBELLIOUS – Coz I am at war with myself!!

It’s strange how age and experience changes one and ones outlook!

I have learnt the most about myself and my chemistry with others only in the last 3 years of my life. These years have been very formative and constructive. They have practically driven me to the brink of a strong metamorphosis. – the changed person I am now.

I owe a lot of ME to these years.

A few years back I could easily compile an articulate and elaborate description of me– because I thought all those long sentences and fancy adjectives were me! But trust me they weren't.

Now I think there is still a lot of room left to re-explore myself and my depths. To challenge myself, to innovate and to grow!!

And, someday I will know myself well! I will be able to describe myself in the About me section – just the way I am and just the way I wanted it to be!
