Be Safe

True incident:
Our next-door neighbour's home caught fire yesterday. Their college-going daughter lit a mosquito-coil and put the match-stick on the ground. What she didn't know was that Kerosene had accidentally spilled over on the floor...
Luckily all are safe. The Fire-engine came and things were under control.
We must all be careful. Ensure safety. Beware of half-burnt match-sticks and improperly-closed/fallen bottles. We don't know what is in store in the next moment...��
Be safe. Take care. God bless. ��

The Quest

She woke up suddenly hearing a ragged sound that stormy night.

She felt someone was knocking at her door and there were threatening footsteps.
She decided to investigate.

Perfect Odissi Odyssey

In my last international flight in September, I was delighted to read the interesting views about "how do we keep our heritage alive" expressed by the travel 3Sixty° team that was published in the in-flight magazine.

I loved what Sub Editor Gregory Basil has shared about Odissi dance- that he was spellbound seeing Ramli Ibrahim's show named "Spellbound". Ramli Ibrahim is a Malaysian, who performs Odissi with his troupe.

As I belong to the state of Odisha of India, I could immediately connect with the above views. 

Odissi dance is a treat to the eyes as it is very graceful and captivating like poetry or sculpture in motion.

How much I wish to fly to Morocco you can't guess!

Past And Present

Next, I saw myself building a pretty sand-castle on the beach when my boyfriend got violent, pushed and jabbed me and destroyed my castle.

Then, I saw myself as a victim of a bad marriage where my husband treated me like refuse and I was praying to God to take me away.

No More Tears

When she saw him get up in the middle of the rainy night and found him driving away in his car, she was suspicious and followed him in her car.

When he stopped at a building, she overheard his greasy conversation.

In his car, he had stacked illegal drugs amounting to millions of dollars, sure to gift tears and hellish lives to many families.

She found tears welling up her eyes that she trusted this criminal, but those tears soon got washed away in the rain.

She had early childhood memories of going round in a carousel.
The pace was leisurely and she had loved the merry-go-round and waved whenever she crossed her mom.

As a young lady when she went to the newest amusement park and tried out the carousel, she didn't find it merry as she was terrified.

He showered her with lots of love and care.

Lost Love

But, that wasn't the only thing that was unusual about the A&B Building.

All the couples who had resided in it coincidentally had their names starting with A&B, had fallen in love, got married, and then they drifted apart on fidelity issues.

Never Again Forget To Celebrate!

How we forget to celebrate!

We have too many things on our plate.

We allow things to happen as it's 'fate'.

Ever wondered about our fatal state?

We have no time to wait or enjoy with mate.

We are too busy/bored to even go on a date!
