Can I?

Today, I finally decided to wait for her outside the office. I’ve been preparing myself for this scene for ages but never could bring myself to say it all cut and dry at her face. But, TODAY was THE DAY. When she came near me, I asked her to get on the bike with me. As usual she tried her best not to. She was always afraid of bikes. I knew that. Still I wanted her to give her a ride – that was the first thing in the plan I had for today. At last, I won the war of words and she got beside me. I could feel her tension whenever a turn or a speedbreaker came. I couldn’t stop myself from smiling when she clutched my shoulder whenever I overtook another vehicle. The next surprise for her was when we reached our destination.



It was my favorite trekking place, not very far from town. As I expected, she didn’t want to climb down the small hill with me to the place I wanted to take her. Again, she had to agree. She was holding my hand too tight and was also shivering when I lead the way downhill. She was almost in tears and was cursing me for my stupid joke when we came back near my bike again. I was damn sure that if she had the option, she’d have left me there and taken a rick back home. Now, as the time had come for the Grande Finale, I knelt down before and took her hands in mine to ask “Look Shreya, I did all this just to show you that I’ll never let your fears rule you when you are with me. I want to keep you far away from ‘em for the rest of your life. Can I?”

Was thinking wht to rite my blog and wht a topic i get to rite its abt our president and his views abt our country i totally agree with this hope u too agree.. do take time and read it.. A very thoughtful speech from the President of India A very thoughtful speech from the President of India......... It's very long but worth spending 15 mins. The President of India DR. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam's Speech in Hyderabad. Why is the media here so negative? Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognize our own strengths, our achievements? We are such a great nation. We have so many amazing success stories but we refuse to acknowledge them. Why? We are the first in milk production. We are number one in Remote sensing satellites. We are the second largest producer of wheat. We are the second largest producer of rice. Look at Dr. Sudarshan, he has transferred the tribal village into a self-sustaining, self-driving unit. There are millions of such achievements but our media is onl

LIFE IN A PARSI COLONY

LIFE IN A PARSI COLONY Forget 'Life in a Metro'. 'Life in a Parsi Colony' should be made into a movie! In Mumbai, you will unarguably find the largest concentration of Parsis in the community's many 'baugs', or exclusive residential areas where despite the illusionary calm there is, very often, simmering strife, racy rumours are perennially rife, and there is many a shrieking wife… Parsi women of a certain vintage are blessed with a booming voice box that often entertains an entire block with its blasting blah-blah, and it is not unusual for family quibbles and complaints to be broadcast aloud - not so much by design as by default because, 'dikra', what do you do when manic 'mumma' loses volume control? Then, in the 'baugs', you also have any number of aunties in their nightgowns, regally rechristened as 'gowns', and worn throughout the day, often even on errands in and around the baug, expanding their ample lungs and

Caves of the Elephants

Elephanta Caves  are a  World Heritage Site  and a collection of cave temples dedicated to the Hindu god  Shiva , with a lot of Shivalings. They are located on  Elephanta Island , or  Gharapuri  (literally "the city of caves"). It is about a 1 hr boat ride from The Gateway of India. Living in Mumbai for more than 30+ years i had never visited them and so was the case with my girl friends !! So we three decided to go and visit it, like a check mark to our list of things to do in Mumbai :P There are a lot of local hawkers selling variety of things on the way to the caves, which is about 120 steps up hill. The caves are mostly damaged, but still recently a lot of restoration is done and there are guards kept to ensure people do not misuse things. There are a lot of people trying to be guides, however it is better to read up rather than spending money on the guides. The three faced statue (Trimurti) is the most beautiful and  considered a masterpie
