Bookmarked - The 'Way' and 'Why' I Write

I keep... Some idle words, Few hollow lines, By my bedside.
Half past midnight, I write some more. While a few smile at me, Standing by my door.
Puzzled with this random rush, I search for meaning within. I adopt the simple versions, The ones that touch my skin.
I flip the chapters of my life, My life looks like an ashtray. I puffed every bit of it, But I sing it as a ballet.
I write...I will continue to... Everyday shaping my endeavor. With words I'm immortal, In them...I will live forever and ever.
This is an old poem. Reposting as it reminds me of simpler times. Also, I've been writing daily for over 76 weeks now. I find peace of mind in written words.

Meri Adhuri Prem Kahani - #50ShadesOfStupidity

If there is one TV commercial I completely associate with, it’s Good Knight Active+ System. It repels mosquitoes with its dual speed action. I had the same effect on boys. I repelled them! My dual-action switch was my words, though. No, I was not bad with words. In fact, I was very intelligent. I still am. But boys don’t like intelligent girls. They ‘pretend’ to like us. All that - ‘I like a girl with whom I can strike meaningful conversation’ - is crap. I tried it many times. And I have many male friends. Not boyfriends, male friends. Boys friend-zoned me! We all know what that means. I am okay with it now but there was a time in my life when I was on a mission. One day I asked my male friend, ‘Why no one from our group has proposed me?’ To which he shamelessly replied, ‘Tu badi intelligent hai yaar, darr lagta hai tujhse!’ And thus, his reply resulted in my 2-month long makeover.

I started my makeover by imitating girls around me - flicking hair, giggling and all that nonsense that m…

A home filled with love is never empty

A cozy king-size bed for you
An old cot for some
Turf of manicured lawn
Or a shanty in Mumbai's slum

 A roof is all we need
Add a few luxuries here and there
Then how big is big enough?
Is squandering a meaningless affair?

 Two can live happily in one room
No square feet, no price
Love to wrap yourself in it
Few adjustments and a little sacrifice

 Changed nearly a dozen houses
But I treasure the moments we've shared so far
Not the flat screen TV we own
Or the spacious garage for our car

 Often on lonely afternoons
The homemaker in me longs
For a tiny nook where I can recreate the good old days
Filled with friends and favorite songs

 Though I labor to keep the house spick and span
But it's the mess that makes it complete
Remnants of an evening well spent
With friends, family and treats

 A house is empty without happiness
Things only fill up space
An expensive couch can make the living room beautiful
But it can never brighten the gloomy days

 Yet collect these things togeth…

Check these money matters in the last quarter of the year

Last quarter of the year is marked with festivities, weddings, and parties. But this year demonetization has brought the entire country on its toes. We all are concerned, paying extra heed to our financial matters. Personally, to streamline my finances I do the following in the last quarter of the year. Read and double check your finances and walk into the New Year with confidence. Double Check That All Premiums Are Paid
I and my husband have a few policies. Though, we get reminder letters for the payment of premium. There is still a chance that we miss paying one. It happened with us once. We were traveling for a month and missed both the online and letter reminders. I recommend double checking that premium on all policies is paid. Also, make sure the receipts ready are for tax filing.
