Silently eloquent for one year

Bang bang! completed one year of blogging. Thanks to all of you.

It was nice to see my mail box with a huge response to a controversial post. Thanks for sharing your secrets and baring your souls and real names to me. Glad I was worth it. I have felt self righteous, martyred at times but also learnt that opinions could defer and also accept some people as they are, knowing that the world would be uninteresting without them.

It has been an immense pleasure to share some pages of my life though I confess it is not necesarrily my life chronicled. Sometimes, I am so happy and satisfied with life that I am scared I might just die. Sometimes, I feel pain till I can define pain no more. Words seem less and fail to express these upheavels. Beyond this webpage, I lead and live a life which is much more richer like say being umemployed:-) Feel like bugging you about how succesfully unsuccessful I am but I'll spare you.

ok, Another job awaits me and God save me and my career! For now, I have taken a break. Watched "Robots", "Kya Kool Hain Hum" and "DDLJ". They are worth a 'dekho'.

Been pampering myself, reading, sleeping, holidaying and dreaming. Yes, of star studded nights, walking in the beach or playing with kids and hope that they rub their innocence to me, of a heart- warming romance.

Have gained some weight too. 26" waist had started hanging on my hips. Made me look like walking with shit-in-the-pants that too formal:-) The last time, my folks were here mom said she could hang an umbrella on my collar bones, my so called beauty bones. She can be a bully at times and now, I know it runs in the family.

Inspite of all these relaxation and fun, I feel sudden bouts of despair. Perhaps, a certain longing for someone somewhere.

A galaxy of stars above me shines, I hope one of them is shining just for me.

Hi Arunima,

I'd say Thank You rather than congrats. For sharing your world with us. Ever since I came to see your blog, I kept coming back, just because of your use of language. I hope you soon will overcome the situation you had in your career. Last week, I also had some very bad situation, still trying to patch it up.

Regards,
Jo.

There is a star
Shining for you
Twinkling in anticipation
Waiting, searching
Across lonely skies
Peering, trying
to see it's reflection
in your lovely eyes...
