About me.

Hi!

I am Shilpa Gupte. And, this blog is the abode of my thoughts.

I fell in love with words way back in college, where I unleashed the writer within me in the essays we were expected to write. However, with time,  this budding writer went into hibernation. Life took over. But, along the way, I met a friend, who caught a glimpse of that old spark in me and encouraged me to wield the pen all over again.

It has been nearly three years since I began writing seriously. I wasn't very tech-friendly then, so this blog is courtesy that lovely friend, who held my finger and led me into the blogosphere.

I have been a homemaker since after leaving my job as a school-teacher to take care of my family. However, I like to introduce myself as the mother of my Labrador Retriever son, Chikoo. He is my raison d'etre. The one soul, who is responsible for keeping me "afloat" from the moment he stepped into my world.

This is Chikoo. Isn't he  handsome ?


Many a post revolve around this bundle of fur, who has the ability to drive me insane with his histrionics, as well as turn me all mushy with just a look!

I have always loved writing about my feelings, about things I would love to be heard over the din that the world gets drowned in. And, thus this blog named, feelings.

Apart from Chikoo's tales and musings of my dreamy mind, I have attempted fiction, too.  I hope your visit here is enjoyable. I so hope you find something to take back with you, as a memento, perhaps; a little something that touches a chord, or brings about a few chuckles and brightens up your day!

Do let me know your thoughts about my feelings!

If you wish to contact me, here's my email id:    shilpaa.gupte1@gmail.com

Have a happy blog-tour!


Lots of love,

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…

You are The Man!

I admit, I am late in discussing this event, but did you watch the controversial 'Koffee with Karan' episode, two weeks ago? The one where the ubertalented Kangana Ranaut and Saif Ali Khan were Karan Johar's guests on his famous couch, sipping coffee along with him? Did you notice Kangana's confidence and her sassiness?   Do you remember her repartees, her jibes, her ripostes that were well-aimed at Mr. Johar? How fearlessly she spoke her mind without mincing words! And, she was in conversation with one of the Big Daddies of Bollywood.

I confess, I am an admirer of Ms. Ranaut, and I was blown away by her candour. The fact that she gave two hoots about diplomacy, and about the men in power in the hindi film industry,  shows how self-assured she is. She wasn't born into the industry, with a silver spoon; she entered the industry as an "outsider", who, despite being written off by the industry bigwigs, worked her way up the very competitive ladder, right to…

How I wish I could turn back the clock!

"Youth comes but once in a life time!"

             Traversing through  life, how often do we look back wistfully at our past and wish we could go back, wish we could live it all over again, just one more time?   Each time we witness the young around us enjoying life, enjoying their freedom and pursuing dreams with an enviable vigour, how we wish we could swap places! Sigh.

             A few days ago, I happened to have a chat with a 23 year old cousin. Excited about her future and the plans she had chalked out for herself, she had quite a lot to share with me. The sparkle in her eyes and the enthusiasm in her voice spoke a lot about how eager she was to embark upon the path she had chosen! Her enthusiasm was, indeed, contagious, for it left me yearning to turn the clock back and re-enter that age I left behind almost 2 decades ago.
