My Winning Speech

This would be My Winning Speech on being rewarded the BlogAdda Blog Award!

""The prize for the best blog in the personal category goes to Chitra Nair. ""

As i hear my name being announced my heart skips a beat and i walk with my head high with pride and joy. As i reach the stage, I have been offered the mike to speak a few words and i remind them  I write well and not speak well :)
But then as there is always a first time for everything, I take on the mike and clear my throat  to find myself at a loss of words.
After few heavy breaths, I start talking

I am glad  Blog Adda chose me for this award and am extremely thankful to the entire team who thought i had it in me to make it to this list.

I have loved writing right from the age of 5. I would scribble down stories and ask my mom to read it.My parents would be my critic then. As i grew, I couldn't find time to sit and write .My sister suggested me to start a blog.The entire idea of starting a blog fascinated me and i started with a bang. One or two posts later, i lost interest and i dumped the idea totally.

This & That was born as a result of a random comment made by my friend Abhi who thought i should shut my mouth and instead put all the garbage that i keep talking onto a paper so that he is not the only one who has to suffer. That comment had a serious impact and i started penning down my thoughts. My blog is just about my thoughts and it is something that lets me pour my heart out. With hundred regular readers to my credit, this two year old baby of mine has given me numerous reasons to be proud of.

I would want to thank my critics, my close friend Sujit, my other friends who have been regular readers,my sister Priya( who is my editor),my fiancee who has been extremely supportive,my mother in law who is proud of me no matter what i write,my colleagues who think i write well.

And my parents, i can't thank them enough; they made me who i am .Ya , one thing that i need to thank them enough is for paying the electricity bills, while i endlessly blogged all night at times.My dad has been my inspiration. And my mom, my encouragement, my backbone!

Am i getting too sentimental here ? hhehe!!

For all those who couldn't make it to the list ,guys dont be disappointed, i would want to quote this ( my favourite lines):

Sitaron Se Aage Jahaan Aur Bhi Hain,
Abhi Blogging Ke Imtihan Aur Bhi Hain

Beyond the stars are even more worlds
There are still even more tests of blogging

Tu Shaaheen Hai, Parvaaz Hai Kaam Tera
Tere Saamne Aasmaan Aur Bhi Hain 

{You are a falcon, your task is to fly
Before you there are other skies as well to cover

With tears in my eyes, i kiss my trophy and walk down only to be hugged by my mom - the same way she did when i earned hundred bucks for my story writing competition .

Boulevard Of Broken Dreams

This post was an entry to Read Leaf Poetry India Award

Early Mornings When I walk by
In a Hurry, to Reach my Office Nearby
Across the lane, she walks out of her home
In tattered clothes, she would walk and roam

Her eyes ask questions, a hundred
They gleam at the sight of Bags and books
Down she looks,and silently lifts her basket
Carrying the burden on her tender shoulders.

On being asked, what would you want to be
"A doctor ", she replies with glee
Breaking into an angelic smile
She walks away.....

A Lost Child hood, Hundred Broken Dreams
She silently gets lost in the crowd of Millions
Selling her wares,Selling her innocence
Pushed and Shoved in the crowds

On my way back,I Find her sitting alone
A broken doll , a broken toy would lay by her side
Nothing to study, nothing to look forward for
A day of Struggle just sets by.

No crayons would add the hue
No spray paints would add that color
Hardships and struggles have marred her life
Colors of Worry Now Fill The Palette Of her Life

A boulevard of broken dreams she lives in
Having Lost Her way to A Carefree Childhood,
Stuck in a maze of poverty
She stares into the void with empty eyes

Unsure of what the future beholds for her
Unsure of what the next morning awaits
She slips into deep slumber on the pavement
Skeptical of waking up alive the next day....

Love Forever!

This post is an entry for Platinum Day of Love Contest on Indiblogger

When you are in love, everyday is like a platinum day  of love. There are ups and downs in every relationship but there are moments captured in each of them which form memories and get framed in the sands of time.
I am a die hard romantic and i see love in the simplest of the stuff that my partner does for me. Everyone does silly stuff when they are young, everyone tries to woo you when you are hot , sexy and young.
For me my platinum day of love would be when :
 - I grow old, i no longer have a figure to flaunt and my partner still finds me beautiful.
- I grow old and he finds my body beautiful even with those stretchmarks and post pregnancy marks.
-  I grow old and still we would have that one weekend coffee date. the typical filter coffee that i would make for him or the one he would make for me.
- We would see our grandchildren growing up and he reading stories to them and me.
- He would worry about me not taking my medicines .
- He would worry about me returning home late .
- He would occasionally bring flowers for me from the  local flower market.
- He would bring me "one saree" that would have such awful designs but would insist on me wearing it.
-When I would pose in for a photograph with him and still find him handsome like always.

-When we would fight and not talk for days,and he would make attempts to break the ice.

- When he would cook me my favourite meal once in a while.
- Our long walks together discussing our life and our moments spent together.
- when I am fast asleep after a hard day’s work and  he puts a warm blanket on me

- When I cook terribly and he says “It’s yummy”

- when he would kiss me goodnight, and i would pray to wake up every morning next to him.

All these are some rare moments ; are rare and unique like the platinum.
For me love is eternal just like "platinum" the metal which stands for love and purity. For me love is all about growing old with my partner. Its all about living for the one special person ,accepting them with their imperfections and making it a perfect platinum life full of such wonderful platinum moments. 

i believe Love is like a bottle of wine which just gets better and better as we age and if your's is such a love that has grown lovelier over the years,mark this milestone by getting your partner platinum love bands which would be an epitome of your everlasting love.
