The beginning Of a love story

Hug (Photo credit: kevin dooley)
You were so close to me, I could feel your sweet smell around me, and I could clearly hear your heartbeat … loud n clear… filled with lots of passion and humanity. The warmth of your hug gave me a divine feeling.

It made me realize of my very existence… the ultimate fact that I was still ‘alive’ not just a bulk of flesh and blood… even I had a ‘heart’ which was semi-dead… I don’t know how exactly it happened and the next thing I knew was that I was in your arms. The moment itself was so mesmerizing.

The way you pulled me close to your heart… (Which was pounding so loudly as if it’s eager to tell me something- loud, rhythmic and clear…) You were holding me so tightly and warmly in your arms… as if trying to protect me from this harsh world.

Your strong arms, as if trying to support or rather supply some energy, some ‘life’ in my rather lifeless limp body. All the mental turmoil which I was going through ceased at once… the worries, thoughts, negative emotions all stopped…

I was so so peaceful. The care and concern, the pain in your eyes, respect, affection (love?) every emotion was displayed in the hug which you gave me… I don’t have the correct words, our sweet smell and your strong arms enveloping me… as if the blood flow grew stronger… the state of confusion whether I should hug you back or not ( darn! Those bloody thoughts of being ‘immoral’)… 

At last which I did [J] although it lasted the way your grip tightened a bit which showed your increased level of confidence.

just a sunshine....

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 43; the forty-third edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "LIGHT"

Diwali.. The festival of light.. The evening of bringing light, hope and meaning to our light. Its 28 Oct again and while I am enjoying my favorite cup of tea after a hectic day; something inside me stirs.. And I contemplate.. Light in my life.. The moment of sunshine.

Yes it was 28th Oct of year 2011.. I have just completed my PG in psychology and was wondering about my career. I was gainfully employed.. But that sense of direction.. The meaning in life was missing. And then it happened as if  pre-decided.. As a divine blessing.. As an answer to my call. 

I heartfully thank my FB friend Ahmed who told me about this opening.. A post of coordinator in the IGNOU study center.. The sunshine in my life. I humbly grabbed the opportunity and there was no looking back. The job was demanding.. Taking lectures on weekends.. Administrative job on weekdays.. Just like principal of a school. But as they say "everything happens for a reason" it was a job that brought out the best of me.. Like I was in a state of Flow.. 

I pioneered many initiatives like preparing assignments to be given..organising practical classes.. Conducting practical exams.. Psychology was a new subject at IGNOU back then.. and hence very challenging.. But all the challenges became the step stones to my destiny.. My cherished goal.. A CEO of a company providing psychological services in and around Delhi & NCR.

Life gives us small gifts and that have the capacity to make your life upside down.. just like a small mud lamp can destroy all darkness.. that ray of sunshine removed all uncertainty and filled my life with purpose and joy. My life changed.. With just a sunshine. 

Happy Deepawali Friends!!!!!
