Moms are special!

Yeah I know, everyone would say that. But it's a different thing to experience it altogether.

Last night I was sleeping with my mom on one side and my sister on the other. Suddenly in the middle of the night I woke up with a start.
I started looking around like a baboon. You know, staring at my sister as if I don't know where I am. And I still don't remember what made me wake up. A bad dream probably?

Anyway, my mother on seeing me all sweaty scolded my sister- "You hit her!" And then she did something that I'll cherish my whole life.
She said to me as if i was a li'l kid- "it's okay.. it's okay... Go to sleep." And then she hugged me and I went to sleep again.

Even though I am a 21 year old adult I wish my mom would hug me the same way everyday.
But i dare not tell her lest she becomes conscious of it.
These things are best done spontaneously, especially mom's love.

That is why moms are special. For no matter how old you get, you'll always be their li'l girl!
Love you mom! I just wish I could express this to you someday..

Laughter is infectious.

Had a rough start to the day. You know, like one of those that you would easily want to forget.

So I left the house angry as hell, which by the way is my trademark.
But then it is in these strange moments that i realised that you can find happiness wrapped in small packages.

I took my seat in the metro and at the next station a li'l girl came and sat next to me with her mother.
As much as i dread kids, she left no stone unturned in making me hate her. She was jumping, screaming, looking out of the window exclaiming at every passing tree- "OOH! What's that!". To top it all she was standing on the seat!
At that moment I gave her an angry stare. Why the hell was she leaning on me anyway?

But then she did a very strange thing. She looked at me, sealed her lips, and put one finger on each of her cheeks.
Now that was weird!

She did the same thing when I stared angrily at her for the second time. What a retard, I thought.
So then I asked her mother what is she doing?

Her mother started smiling and looking at her said- "She's trying to control her laughter. ise hansi aa rahi hai."

And I went- "What?!"
I looked at her and then she suddenly burst out laughing!

I tried to maintain that angry look but Alas! her laughter caught me as well.
The way she was laughing it made me laugh as well.
And was she laughing! She was literally falling on the floor! And so it became a chain.
First, she was laughing then I was, then her mother and eventually the whole coach was.

Hence I said- laughter is infectious! :)

The sound of wind

I didn't know the sound of wind sounds so good.
Sometimes you need time for what the pundits would call it "introspection".
I was on the roof, headphones on.
I could feel the wind blowing, and banging against my ears and headphones it sounded different.
*swish.. swish...
Though it sounds kiddish but it was like somebody talkin to you.
On normal days I would have been really afraid. (I have had an excess of The 3 Grudges, Dead Silence and Paranormal Activity!)
But this time it was different. It might as well have been the wind talking to me, I wouldn't know.
But it sure did made me turn my music off.And somehow the sound of wind sounded more musical than the music in my phone. I was on the edge of the roof (No, I wasn't going to jump off) and I could see quite some distance.
Looking down made me feel I could fly.. Like you have those images as kids. I remember watching Shaktiman made a lot of kids believe that if they fall he's going to come flying and save them.
But nah! This wasn't about somebody saving me.
This was about feeling liberated.
Like one of those moments when you're by yourself. You can't think of a solution but at that moment you don't think of the problem as well.
You've lost the world but you've found yourself.
Although it's just a moment but it makes up for all your lifetime...
