Miss you, my love!

   Sniff sniff sniff...
   I follow her  trail,  to no avail. This is the spot where I met her yesterday, where we promised to meet  today. This is the place, where I set my eyes on her; she, in all her white furry glory, her light  brown eyes, her sexy whiskers, and her tail, swaying side to side. 
   There was something about the twinkle in those eyes, they grabbed my heart, and turned my world upside down. Her bark felt like music to my ears, her breath the sweetest breath, ever! And, her gait - oh, goodness, have I ever seen a more gracious sway before!?
  Here I am, waiting for her, missing her like crazy. Wondering when she will come, join me on my walk, and make this the best moment of my day. I find it tough to walk back home without a look at my love. But, go home, I must. For, tomorrow is another day , a day full of hope, a day full of promise. A hope that I will meet her, a promise that I will make her, of being her friend for the rest of my life, and showering her with my love forever and ever. 


  1. Awwww, puppy love at its finest. So sweet, Shilpa! Chikoo is in love! Love the cute photo, too. You are a hopeless romantic, I can tell.

    1. You are so very correct, Cat! I AM a hopeless romantic! Actually, the 'girl' I wrote about is Chikoo's friend, who now lives with her grandparents and her uncle in Goa. Chikoo adored her a lot, and now misses her very much. . So, this post was written on his behalf! :))

  2. Acchacho. This is too adorable. Puppy love at is pristine best! Ok, what happened? I am seeing a sudden spike in posts PLUS a really different feel to your writing. What is the secret of this inspiration? P.S. I am loving it :)

    1. Thank you, Shailaja! :))
      Actually, my friend-cum-mentor pushed me to participate in the A to Z challenge, and write for the remaining letters, so, here I am! :)

  3. Awww I tell you. Coco used to like a neighbor's dog who did not give him any bhav. So well, he learnt his lesson. :) Hugs, Shilpa.

On love and attachments.

Learning to live without the person whom we loved more than our life is one of the toughest things we humans experience during our life.
Almost every moment of our day we spend in their shadows, enveloped in their love; we don't even realise when they became an extension of our selves. We come to accept them along with their flaws, their peculiarities, which often have the potential to drain us of our patience. Yet, we love them, unconditionally, at times wondering how we survived before they entered our world. Often, we also wonder how we will ever survive after they leave our world.

The human mind is such.  Its ability to give birth to a thought and then mull over it however unpleasant it may be, is quite baffling! We realise we stand to lose our sanity if we don't get rid of that negative thought; we understand how important it is to live in the moment and enjoy it with the loved ones we fear losing someday, yet we keep worrying ourselves to death about what would happen t…

A pleasant surprise.

Life does that. Springs surprises when you are least expecting any. And  you are left baffled, overwhelmed, ecstatic, and, surprised, too! You find it unbelievable that such a thing could happen with you. And, it takes a lot of probing and analysing to finally accept that something this unimaginable could happen to you, too!

              The above emotions are  what I went through when I received a message from the Manager of Baggout that my blog had been selected as one of the 15 best love and relationships blogs in India. I must have read the message 5 times and still found it unbelievable. In fact, I thought someone was playing a prank. I made enquiries, tried finding out all about Baggout and went back to where I was - in a state of utter disbelief! Call it low self esteem if you wish, but I wondered how  anyone could find my one and a half year old blog worthy of any such mention.

        The feeling was  good, nay, great. But, unless I saw it all in black and w…

Author: Priya Kumar.

The story in a nutshell: Sammy, an 80 year old billionaire, realises that the secret behind his success in life has been the various sacrifices he made along the way.

This realisation spurs him to leave behind his identity and money and participate in the life he missed out on. Eleven months in a year, he takes on a new identity and sets out to experience anything - even death - to participate in adventures across the world. All he carries with him are his curiosity and his willingness to experience anything that life may present him with.

The Wise Man Said is a collection of twelve stories from Sammy's adventures that he penned down in his diary; experiences from his exciting journey that left him feeling enriched and contented at a life well liv…
