The 1st time...



Through out your life, be it at any age, whatsoever you do for the 1st time, is always special. Some of those things you may not even remember. For instance, your first steps, the first time you said "Ma", your first birthday, your first time on bicycle, your 1st day in school, your first time on stage etc. etc. The list goes on and on...

I think that was too emotional to handle for the 1st paragraph of a post...but I mentioned all this as I was reminded of all such memories by a friend of mine sometime back. Her name is Swati, but i fondly call her sweeta or sweetie...We met in our hostel, which happened to be our 1st time in Mumbai...We both were new in this city, very home-sick, scared of living alone in such a big city, hoping for our survival...This I think was one of the reasons we became quite close friends in no time and touchwood, we still are very good friends. She is married now and settled in Dubai. I spoke with her over the phone as its her daughter Ananya's 1st Birthday. So while talking to her, I remembered everything...

Another reason I mentioned this as I got my 1st tattoo done. It's a dolphin and i simply loved it. (the image is of my tattoo which i have uploaded here :)) I have been contemplating to get one done for almost a year, but was scared due to one main reason - the pain. And trust me, I was all wrong. It is not so painful. Rather, for me, it was a wonderful experience..So, either people around me are way too weak to handle such a minor pain, or my tattoo artist was really good...any which ways, I am very happy after getting that. Only the after-care part is difficult as I can't have 2 of my favourite things - Aalo and Rice. God how am I gonna survive for 15 days??? Still, I think I don't mind doing this much for my lifetime treasure.

This 1st time thing reminded me of my 1st day in College. Like any other fresher and 1st timer in Mumbai, I entered my college - Sydenham College premises. I was dead nervous as I had heard lots and lots of stories of ragging and teasing by the seniors. So from my scared expressions, a group of seniors got to know that I am a fresher. So they caught me. They started asking me all the questions one by one. I got so nervous that I started shivering, but somehow kept my cool. One guy, I still remember his name - Tejas, asked me to say A to Z in reverse order or he would not let me enter the premises. God, I couldn't believe I could get this lucky. I had taken up typewriting course in school just for fun sake as my uncle taught it. There I had to Learn typing A to Z in reverse. So I knew that by heart. I just said it in around 5 seconds. They all were amazed and became my good friends from that day onwards.

And when I started my own Law firm in Partnership with Heena, who is a very good friend as well, the feeling of getting the 1st client cannot be expressed in words...

So there goes my few stories of significant 1st time...I would love to know the same from my fellow bloggers as well...

Here I am...


Here I am...
Looking back in life...
when I didn't know the difference between
good or evil; truth or lie,
smiling at everyone, whoever passed by..

I played with sand, made my castle,
and cried when somebody broke it..
a small hug from mom then,
always motivated me to build the castle again..

Here I am...
Looking back in life...
when a small candy was the biggest gift,
and a doll was like a sibling..
the fights with friends lasted for five minutes,
what is ego? I didn't know..

When ambitions in life changed every second,
from doctor, to astronaut and engineer.
When I didn't need a reason to laugh,
One smile solved every problem.

Today things are the same, but i am changed,
I don't laugh without a reason,
Nor i have multiple ambitions..
I no more make castles, nor get anymore candies,
Nor i have any dolls to talk to.

But I still have the power,
Power to love unconditionally,
and live the life that of a kid,
and I have the power to rebuild my castle,
the sand is the same, the motivation is still there..

Here I am...
Looking forward to my life...

I am about to finish the book - Devil Wears Prada...Mandar and I are planning a holiday together...lets hope it materialises...i am soon planning to start to write a book...just exploring few topics which interest me...

Thats all for now...gotta finish a lot of pending work...
