THESE GLASS BANGLES


Bangles,oh ! lovely bangles,
Red and blue , they are so lovely too.

Yellow and green , so bright and colourful !
how lovely , they adore her pretty hands,

they tinkle as she speaks animatedly.

with a spirit that never dies - for
she is a woman with passion .
A passion to lead , to live and let live!
These colours hide her sorrows ,

Paint a vigour of happiness and joy ,
That takes her gliding across the path of life !

Bangles, oh ! such lovely glass bangles.



These bangles are simple,
yet convey something deep within.

Thoughts that cannot be measured

Those which cannot be heard,
yet the music , they make
seeps deep down the soul,
Speaking only one language,

The language called love .

Love is the air she breathes in and out ,
sleflessly , when she works to run her home.

While feeding her kids sacrifing her share,

Caring for her husband who walks back from the field.
Serving her parents and all elders.

Smiling throughout to mask her pains.
Every time she feeds, she cleans and she cuddles,
these bangles ring a rythm,

A rythm so divine.
Divine , because she is SHE!

Bangles oh! bangles ,
lovely glass bangles!

Day 307: Happy Chingam !

Today is Chingam 1 (to be read as onnu). It is the new month according to the lunisolar calendar. This month is also called as Avani and Shravana. So, why is this month special?  This month marks the beginning of the festival season back home and the it is fun to have small celebrations through the months until  mid- December. It is also the month of Onam (Harvest festival in Kerala).

The first festival we have this month is the 'sacred thread' changing ceremony for men/boys who wear that. This is followed by usually the birthday of little Krishna and then the elephant-head god, Ganesha. Then comes Onam followed by the beautiful month of Navaratri or Durga Pooja. So, the big set of festival season is here and here is a wish to all of you on Chingam 1. Wishing you all blessed and excellent months ahead. Have fun!

Day 315 : What's on your bucket list?

Bucket List. A term that has become popular much after the famous movie with the same title in 2007. The term would have probably taken after the euphemism 'kick the bucket', which was again popularized in the movie, 'It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world'. The 2007 movie was a massive hit and how would it be not? It had Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman in the lead. The term was meant to have a list of things you wish you can do before you leave this world.

It is like a goal list that can evolve as you grow and change perspectives in life. I used to have a wish list that worked as a to-do list mostly like a work list for short-term goals. However, off late, I have decided to make one and keep it as an ever evolving list.

The first one on my list as of now (that was from the past too) is to get my biggest degree in life. Hopefully I will tick that one off my list soon.

Do share your thoughts on your list and how do you plan on getting it all checked out.

Love,
M

Day 57: Manjadikuru (The Little Red Seeds)

Do you guys know about Manjadikuru ? They are the little red seeds. For anyone who is from God's own country or is familiar with Kerala wouldn't have missed this. There is something special about holding them, playing with these seeds. Usually, most homes will have a small 'uruli' or a bowl filled with these beautiful and shiny red seeds. In most Krishna temples in Kerala, you will come across a small 'uruli' with Manjadikuru. People believe that it is lucky to take these seeds with both hands and just play with them when you visit a temple. Some even leave a couple of coins as they do this.  In Guruvayoor (my favorite place), you can see a big 'uruli' with manjadi. 

So, why and how did this become prevalent ? It goes back to a story from the past. Many years ago, there lived a poor lady in northern Kerala. She was an ardent devotee of Lord Guruvayoorappan (Krishna) and always wanted to visit Guruvayoor.  She could not afford to buy any offering (nived…
