Etching On.


Etching Patterns of thoughts on the papyrus of our mundane lives..

Designs we croon into the ear of our twin incarnation..

Curved stretches curbing across the mounts..the will, the wish..

Binding with the harsh breath..mellow at times.. juggling at times..

Strolling across to plot a breathless life..


Stumble over potholes dug by our own soles, Hasn’t thee rolled over, traced back, and strutted along then?

Yet the path of etched drawls back and forth scuttering on..

Inking on.. smug.. or giggly.. dreadful or greedy.. smiling through the blots of ink..

In hope in faith.. for trusting to be bound by fate.. we etch on..


A kind samaritan spinning the fate.. whispering incantations to string fate to wish..

A mildly fulfilled soul springs along.. sketching butterflies..

And yet then. droplets of pain blotch the ink just along the curve..


Words lack depth one might say.. as the heart fails to siphon strings of syllables

Wishing to only tell stories of memorable cons, fortitudes.. innocence and love..

How often has thy samaritan hidden in the cave of doubt?

How often does thee ponder of ways to escape the designs?

Trapped in thy own breath, memories and desires..?


Or did the benign fisherman row thee  across?

I think he did.. didn’t he?

Anew bridge..anew sketch..

Anew binding of faith and thee etches on..


P.S- Random thoughts, random sketch as I try to drown myself in something mundane.

Daily Prompt: Haaaaa, Wagging my tongue before and After!

Ring of fire

Spicy food, I can visualize the picturesque sight, the colors, the odor, they have me wagging my tongue. I love food as such. My tummy is like a sponge, it absorbs and absorbs and I have different compartments for different taste buds. Good food, I eat till the sponge is on the verge of exploding. Not everyday of course! And while I am eating I don’t think of the after-effects. I believe thinking to be jinx, sure to ruin the day after.

Indian food usually feels deserted without the spices.


Always the first one to pick a plate during those never ending boring lunches and functions, I keep glancing at the food every 5 mins or 2 mins depending on the number of grumbles per second ( in my tummy). I love anything with cottage cheese and capsicum in it. I love chicken. I probable mentioned this before in another daily prompt. Any delicacy in red or orange and I can’t tear my eyes away from it. You see I am talking about colors more than the ingredients probably because I am not even close to being a novice at cooking. I find the spices and the lentils,(at least their names) all confusing.


I absolutely savor Pav Bhaji and Pani Puri, Lip smacking!

Road side chat, is the best, the perfect mix of all the spices.

Spicy food always makes my tongue wag both before and after. Of course if you were to try it the first time I would suggest you carry a lime soda with you(sweet preferably) or maybe keep a chocolate handy! Generally I end up eating an ice -cream afterwards. And that is actually good practice because it helps the tummy cool down and blunts the attack on your intestines the next day.

P.S- I love telling this(about the ice-cream) to all the overly calorie conscious friends I have.

Part of the Wolf Pack Now! The Howler Award!

Woooohhhhhhoooooooooooooo… Here I come the new member of the wolf pack, I am going to be sworn in today. I have been introduced into the pack by  Samir, who has nominated me for “The Howler Award”. Thank you so much Samir 🙂 I sort of like the description of the wolf pack! And I am indeed honored that you picked me to be an awardee.

The rules of this award are:

  1. Display the award on your blog. This can be in your sidebar or on a special award page.
  2. Thank the person who gave you the award and link to their blog.
  3. Give 3 examples of things you would like to see changed in the world.
  4. Nominate (in your own time) at least 5 bloggers that deserve the award.
  5. (Optional) Donate the equivalent of $10 to a charity of your choice (optional because I cannot check it, however it would be HIGHLY appreciated.

Wolves are faithful, loyal, social and honest. Please keep that in mind when awarding this to someone. Members of the WordPress Wolfpack can hand out the award at their own discretion, non-members can hand out the award after they have gotten it themselves or they can suggest the person they want to nominate to one of the wolfpack members.

The ceremony begins:- Wolf Whistle anybody :p 😀

1) The first change:- Every kid should attend the same kind of school, with the same facilities. I  believe that mindsets can be bred at school and so can the sense of equality be nurtured from childhood. Who is the economy, who are we do deny anybody what is our right?  This would take a lot of work but it is plausible:)

2) Rapists and abusers, expecting their mindsets to change around and waiting for that to happen, well we are hanging on to way too much useless hope. I usually don’t call hope useless, but this is an exception.

So why not make a rape prevention system, something that works like our Intelligence bureaus. Again lot of intricate factors that need working on in this case. Think I am crazy yet? Well, These are Ideas for the future (we could work on them from now), if we can go to Mars, why not this? Terrorism kills people on a large scale and so does this on a discreetly spread out larger scale.

3) Shoo the Gandhis and now the Vadras out of this world, send them to another planet or something. ( I mean the gandhis and vadras of our political families, no offence to anybody with the same title) 😀

My nominations for The Howler award are:-

1) Ink,thoughts,coffee…

 2) Leanne’s Little World

3) Peak Perspective


5) Unload and Unwind

They all are awesome bloggers and from their blogs I have learnt a lot 🙂

Now we proceed to the last part:-

10 dollars to Charity, I have given more than that I am sure and in various forms.Every month I spend more than that on my class room supplies and bare necessities for the kids though I don’t consider that charity but my duty.

I enjoyed being sworn in and hear by again swear to the best of my knowledge to abide by the qualities that symbolize the wolves. 😀

Umm, hope there aren’t any fights to become the Aplha of the back. Grrrrrr. Just kidding. I love wolves ever since I started watched “True Blood” during my college days. Joe Manganiello was the werewolf in the show. 😀 😀 I have a fascination for them ever since.

Jokes apart, Thanks Samir once again for the award and hence the opportunity to write this post!:) Adios! 🙂

Daily Prompt:Fun and Food

It’s My Party

All I can think of when someone says party is food, what food are we going to have? And next where is the party, so basically what am I suppose to wear? So ambiance and food in my party?

Well for a theme, maybe I would say dress as your favorite cartoon character, or maybe just put on your favorite clothes! I am terrible at this theme thing, but I would like to dress as a cartoon character or in my favorite dress or maybe just wear Pajamas!

And yeah, food. The way to a man’s heart is food apparently. Huh. I have immense dislike for that unfair quote. The way to my heart too is food and I am no man!

There would be lots of that, food. Yummy!! My mouth waters even as I imagine the food laid just waiting for me to indulge in it. Pastries, puddings, ice-cream, Roshogolla (that’s a bengali sweet), Carrot Halwa, Gulab Jamun and Ice -cream and all possible sweet dishes from all over the world. I have a terrible sweet tooth. 😀 My poor guests, they would be waiting for actual food probably. Then there would be sea-fish, chicken, Paneer (cottage cheese) Indian tandoori, Chinese. The food would have a touch of, no rather a little more than a touch of cheese and cream. Indian tandoori would be spicy of course. There would bread, rice, noodles and so on so forth.

And yes I would like to be served and would also like my guests to be served milkshakes, if they have a thing for it!

Looks like I just described a food festival. Well, I wouldn’t mind if my party was an actual food festival! I would love it rather. 😀
