Here's to Diya

She's the apple of my eye.
She's ready to strip @ the drop of a hat.
Her prevarications could slip thru a lie detector with effortless ease.
She sings out of tune with gay abandon...& relishes it.
She throws tantrums, and almost always ends up on the winning side.
She has a smile that simply steals my heart away.
She has few secrets and delves into then upon request.
She talks and talks and talks and talks and talks and talks.
She bribes me with hugs and kisses.
Many a siesta have I misses because of her habitual blabbering.
Her enigmatic ways are simply baffling and bafflingly simple.
It's impossible to miss her charms.
She is my doting 4yr old neice, Diyasha.

I hope she comes across this blog some day and realise what a whale of a time we shared together.

Tailored half-a-year back, I never had the courage to wear it, not until today. It's that time of the year when it's time to reflect on the events that transpired. Last year ended on the worst possible note. Dad had expired and I was numb with shock. The repercussions rippled halfway thought this year. Things were so abysmal initially that I had lost the will to live. Acrid in everything I did, I was immensely angered by time phlegmatically flowing through its cadence. It was as if Dad meant nothing to anybody. What right did people have to live the way they always had when Dad was no more? Why was much of the world still
