Thank You Indyeah !!

Thank you Indyeah for " The Resonance Award"
Coming from you, it means a lot. I am humbled and honoured....
I admire the flow of words in your poetry, it just transports me sometimes back to yesterday and sometimes just starts a trail of thoughts. :)

I would like to pass this on to IHM for being an inspiration, someone I and many of us look up to; for raising topics that would have otherwise gone unnoticed.

To Smitha : for speaking your mind (and this post of yours was like a reflection of my mind as well.)

When a stranger makes u smile...

Last weekend we were lunching at an Indian restaurant. And there aren't too many Indian restaurants in the area .
As we entered there was this other person who was also entering.

He held the door for us (though it was a few seconds before we could actually reach the door). We thanked him and I wondered why would someone hold the door for a few seconds longer. Maybe he was someone we had seen at the Diwali get together party... Racked my brain, but neither me nor my hubby dearest could recollect. We assumed maybe we did see him there..

We were still munching away by the window... and we saw this person take his to-go meal and leave. He passed the window outside and my husband waved a bye to him.
This person stopped.... smiled.... pointed to the sky... then to both of us.... then his belly..and said such that we could read his lips "God... both .....and the Baby"

I was so touched. :) God bless him too... :)

Rarely do we get to see such acts wherein people just tell what they feel like ... with so much innocence & honesty even to a stranger.. And that moment becomes so indescribably beautiful.

there are moments when we all wish well, as they say " dua nikalti hai dil se" - but how many of us actually tell it out aloud..

He just made my day !!
God bless him !!
