My Unspoken words

My many words go unspoken,
While I sit with you.
My many moments go fade,
while changing all red in blue.
Even I want to hold your hand,
while walking a mile in the dark.
I want to tell you how much I love you,
There is huge fire hidden in the spark.
Hug me for my worries to die,
my tears to dry and my loneliness to fly

But I Don't want to miss u, even for a while,
No matter my all words remain unspokenhidden in a smile

New Face of Diwali



Paying respects to the gods,
And decorating for them the Thali,
This is what the occasion is all about,
This is the spirit of Deepavali……

The deepawali of new times is quite different what we saw in our childhood. Deepawali goes Hi-Tech. The markets are full of designer Diwali accessories.

Stylish lamps, Diyas, candles, Puja items, everything is changed.

Diyas with candle embedded in it, sweets have changed into gift hampers of namkeens and bhujiyas, Lakshmi Pathakas to Chinease pathaka...OOH the inturders have come into our festivals too..

Rewinding my old memories only for you :-

The tales by our grandparents for Diwali were:-

· If there has been a quarrel in the house, light a diya in the room while holding the intent of bringing back peace and balance.

Light a diya if there has been an illness in the house and you will see for yourself how the vibrations of frustration, pain and depression that often go with illnesses evaporate.

· It is highly recommended that you light a diya in a room where hard drinks are served. It is believed that the energies of liquor are depressants.

Lighting a diya the day after a party cleanses psychic debris effectively.


· It is widely believed, even after Diwali is over, lighting aggarbattis or dhoop daily in all the rooms and not just the pooja room helps the vibration of your house remain healthy.

Diwali means light and festivity, so do up the living room in bright, cheery colours like red, orange, pink and yellow. This also enhances the space by making it look bigger.

Use a glossy, shiny fabric for your cushion covers and curtains. They will automatically reflect the glow of the diyas and candles you light and make the room look warm.

Corners that feel empty can be decorated with small rangolis and flowers.

For me, Diwali is about health, wealth and prosperity and I am thankful to God that I have a great deal to look upon.

The festival of lights

The festival of lights

Diwali is traditionally known by the name of the 'festival of lights", for the common practice is to light small oil lamps (called diyas) and place them around the home, in courtyards, gardens, verandahs, on the walls built around the home and also on the roof tops। There are whole lots of Diwali customs and traditions associated with the festival of Diwali in India, which make this festival worth celebrating।
The Diwali customs and traditions are diverse and there are a lot many legends associated with the celebrations of Diwali।

The Legends
Goddess Lakshmi : The Goddess of wealth, Lakshmi was incarnated on the new moon day (amaavasyaa) of the Kartik month during the churning of the ocean (samudra-manthan), hence the association of Diwali with Lakshmi.

Vishnu Rescued Lakshmi: On this very day, Lord Vishnu in his fifth incarnation as Vaman-avtaara rescued Lakshmi from the prison of King Bali and this is another reason of worshipping Ma Larkshmi on Diwali.

Krishna Killed Narakaasur: On the day preceding Diwali, Lord Krishna killed the demon king Narakaasur and rescued 16,000 women from his captivity. The celebration of this freedom went on for two days including the Diwali day as a victory festival.

The Return of the Pandavas: According to the great epic 'Mahabharata', it was 'Kartik Amavashya' when the Pandavas appeared from their 12 years of banishment as a result of their defeat in the hands of the Kauravas at the game of dice (gambling). The subjects who loved the Pandavas celebrated the day by lighting the earthen lamps.

The Victory of Rama: According to the epic 'Ramayana', it was the new moon day of Kartik when Lord Ram, Ma Sita and Lakshman returned to Ayodhya after vanquishing Ravana and conquering Lanka. The citizens of Ayodhya decorated the entire city with the earthen lamps and illuminated it like never before.

Coronation of Vikramaditya: One of the greatest Hindu King Vikramaditya was coronated on the Diwali day, hence Diwali became a historical event as well.

Why we are in Hurry??

Why we are in hurry. We are really going too fast. We are finding all shortcuts in every task. We are starting our day by hurrying up taking a cup of tea and then taking toast in a car. Rushing up to the office and finding shortcuts in completing the jobs. Trying to make Boss happy and manipulating things . Back home late in the night and kissing our sleeping baby good night. Thats all.
Why so much hurry? We are going far far from reality. Far from human feelings. Its good to be fast but it is not good to live a materialistic life. It is like a complete corporate take over. We will be canned if we don't work fast and may loose job. We have greed in us.
We don't have time to have a look on blooming flower in our garden or even look at our blooming son/daughter achieving a fine masterpiece on wall. Is our Boss is taking all these moments from us?
We have earned so much luxurious life in past few years that it is giving more trouble. Cellphones are most important tools of hurriers. This proves that we cannot wait until we reach home or office. We need to be updated all the time. Call wait is another add on to this. We attend so much calls at the same time.. Hurry you know.
We have one hurry tool and so many hurry add ons on it...I think a country's president also takes extra time for his family.
The best way is to switch off the phone at home and forget the world.. Next day you will find it all at the same place where you left and you will find no change. You will only see some people in hurry..
Me too in hurry to wind up my post
So have a cup of relaxed tea and listen old number in Radio

Gnocchi with Butter and tomato and mint sauce

I tried this recipe as this was posted to me by my Italian friend and this turned out very good. All liked it very much. I am a big fan of Italian cuisines and try my hand on Italian recipes. I love pastas, salads,pickels and Italian cheeses. I love to drizzle parmesan on every recipe I make. I have read a lot about Gnocchi earlier. Bur I wanted to try the classic version first. I had a friend's recipe But I was looking for a a nice sauce.
One day I was logged on to My favourite site Nigella.com. I put the thread on the forum regarding Gnocchi. ya I got so many ideas and recipes. I know the basic Ingredients but When I was given the Butter and sage Idea, I almost tempted to try this.
I immediately went to the kitchen and first kneaded the dough with the plain flour and baked potatoes. Then I made my Gnocchi. After that a beautiful sauce with Butter, fresh mint leaves( as Sage was not available) and cherry tomatoes puree.
It turned out a real treat. Here is the result.
Now I am confident about home made pastas and Will try more by adding spinach or any other grain to this recipe.


मुझे भी खिलना है

औरों की तरह मुझे भी खिलना है,
एक दिन फूल बन कर फिजा में मिलना है।
अपनी खुशबू से आगन को महका कर,
मुझे भी दिल सबका खुश करना है।
शायद कोई मुझे तोड़ कर दिल किसी का पायेगा,
दिल तो मिल जायेंगे और मुझे पन्नोमें छुपायेंगे ।
रहूँगा हमेशा कागज़ से लिपटकर ,
कहानी में ढल कर सालों साल दोहराएंगे.
प्यार के उपहार में हम सब से ऊपर है,
यही सोच कर हम हर बहार में खिल आयेगे ।

I painted red , I painted blue,

I painted yellow to make everything new.
To create the hope in my world,
I created the spring for you.

To make the world innocent,

I bloom the flowers for you.Add Image

The children may not scare in this world's way,

So I took the brush and painted the garden for them to play.




Fight among the senses

All senses fight with one another,
Eye say I am great,
I show the world .
Ear say I am great,
I help to respond the world.
Tongue say I am great,
I help to taste the world.
Nose say I am great,
I help to smell the world.
Skin say I am great,
I help to feel the world.
They all go to brain.
To ask him who is great.
Brain is very clever.
He says few lines
Ear hear the good and eyes turn on.
Eye see the good and skin puts it on.
Skin feels the good and nose takes a long ride.
Nose smells the good and tongue opens wide.
Tongue taste the good and eyes blinks fast,
All forget the fight and return at last.
Five are the babies of Heart and Brain,
All feel the sorrow if any one is in pain.




Suhani and Ridhima were good friends . One day they were playing together. Suhani had a collection of marbles and Ridhima had some sweets. Suhani asked Ridhima to give her all the sweets in exchange of her marbles. Ridhima agreed . Suhani kept one large marble and gave rest to Ridhima. Ridhima gave all the sweets she had . They went back thier homes. That night Ridhima slept peacefully but Suhani could not sleep as she kept doubting if Ridhima had hidden some sweets from her.
If you give you 100 % in any relationship you remain peaceful and contented but if you dont you always kept doubting and remain restless..




सांझ एक ऐसी देखी थी,

बुझी हुई हार देखी थी।

हारो तो भी मन में ,

एक अहसास होता है।

जीते नहीं तो क्या हुआ,

कुछ तो किया हमने,

इसका अभिमान होता है।

पर इस हार में तो अभिमान

चूर हो गया,

स्वाभिमान भी चकनाचूर हो गया।

जिसने जुल्म किया मुझ अबला पर,

उसका तिरस्कार किया,

छोड़ आई तिल तिल कर मरना,

दहेज़ लोभी का बहिष्कार किया।

पर यह क्या जिन्होंने पैदा किया,

उन्होंने कहा कि तुमने हमें
शर्मसार किया।

सांझ एक ऐसी देखी थी,

बुझी हुई हार देखी थी.





An Innocent Saying

A mother and a baby camel were laying around, and suddenly the baby camel asked ....
Baby: Mother, mother, may I ask you some questions?
Mother: Sure! Why son, is there something bothering you?

Baby: Why do camels have humps?
Mother: Well son, we are desert animals, we need the humps to store water and we are known to survive without water.

Baby: Okay, then why are our legs long and our feet rounded?
Mother: Son, obviously they are meant for walking in the desert. You know with these legs I can move around the desert better than anyone does!Said the mother proudly.

Baby: Okay, then why are our eyelashes long? Sometimes it bothers my sight.
Mother: My son, those long thick eyelashes are your protective cover. They help to protect your eyes from the desert sand and wind. Said mother camel with eyes rimming with pride....

Baby: I see. So the hump is to store water when we are in the desert, the legs are for walking through the desert and these eye lashes protects my eyes from the desert.....
Then what the hell are we doing here in the Zoo !!!!!!???

Everybody has their own version. I do not say it is bad or Good. For me it is not only a day of Love but also to recap my relationship. As all days in the year are love days. But this day to be Extra Extra Lovey day. For me chocolate melts more in my mouth this day. The heart shaped balloon rises high in the sky, The heart shaped pizza drizzles with more cheese . The spirit is all romantic. I just kick away all the work worries this day and think only about my valentine ( My Husband).

Just writing few lines for my Valentine:-

Hold my hands and let us walk,
Whisper in my ears I wanna Talk.

Hold my hand my Dear Vani,
My lifes nectar is you my Honey.
So hold me close and kiss me slow,

Angel Graphic #15

I am powerless in your arms,
unable to think,
unable to move,
not wanting to breath
for fear that you will notice my presence
or suddenly become annoyed by it.

So I watch my footing carefully
when I step near you,
so as not to disturb you
and your quiet thoughts.

When I cry
I make sure I do it quietly,
so I won't wake you
from your well deserved sleep.

When I have a problem
I hold it in and listen,
because I know that you need
someone to listen to yours.

When you need me
I am always by your side,
to care for you
and dress your wounds.
Publish Post
I have offered you all of me
and yet I sit idly by,

waiting for you to give something back,
to do anything that will show
that you love me in return.

Some say
the greatest pain in life is to be ignored.
Now I know
that the greatest pain in life
is to l

नई हवा

दिल ने फिर कहा चलो कुछ टहल कर आये,
मैंने कहा कि चलो कुछ नयी हवा को पाए।
चल तो दीये इस दिल के साथ हम,
पर कुछ दूर ही चले कि रुक गए हम।
यह कैसी नई हवा चली है?
हर तरफ खलबली है।
कोई कहता है मैं मराठी हूँ, कोई कहता मद्रासी,
कोई बंगाली है तो कोई दिल्लीवासी।
बच्चो को तो हम चाँद पर जाने को कहते है,
और खुद घर का दरवाज़ा नहीं लांगते हैं।


Sometimes we think that we are perfect, highly educated and know everything. But often ignore the basic behavior.
I have seen people explaining theirselves. Why so? I think your friends do not need your explanation and enemies won't believe it. Then why putting efforts.
Let you work explain you. Where you Go you will be known by your Deeds.
