Republic Day - Happy Samvidhan

Republic day, the reason why my name came to life. Samvidha, or Samvidhan (संवीधान) is the word for 'Constitution.' And Republic day denotes the adoption of the Constitution before the transition of India from a British raj to a Country governed by its people (republic) on On January 26, 1950. Its the reason why we are a free and independent country today and have an independent jury, laws and courts. This was only for those who needed a brush on their history ;)

Well, more on the story on how my name came about. It was the day my Father sat biting his nails outside the Trimulghery Military Hospital :) While My grandparents sat reading the 'Hindi Milap.' The head lines read that this was the day when the Indian constitution (
भारतीय संवीधान) was conceptualized and adopted many years ago, 1949 to be precise :) And so, right then my grandma decided, that if it was a girl (Which I am) the they would call me Samvidha :)

Therefore, this day is special to me in many ways. Mostly because it reminds me of the many people who connect me to this India I live in now. Thanks to the history lessons that eventually followed over the years aka Countless Story sessions with Daadi and Baba. :)

Here's to India, Indians, Bhumi. Cheers!

Octapodi - About Love, Life & that chase...


Its a little love story of Octopus'

Was watching all the short films (Animated category) nominated for Oscars this year, and I totally fell in love with octapodi! The concept, the two octopus', the chase, the fun, the scare and Love.

I see it as a love triangle, taking place between pink octo' and the orange octo' and the man (who rightfully bought the pink octo.) And gradually I understood the reason for the man to chase the octopus' and the octopus to chase her love. Each one equally right in their own terms. The one who was empowered by the society, pocket and stomach, and the other bonded by heart, emotions and love. The movie although is a 2.25 mins duration is enough to live a life time through kaleidoscope. Again, this is my perspective. :)

And... even after the man is eliminated, the triangle lives on, again - a war with the matters of heart and stomach,

So.... Here's to the constant chase of Love and Life!

As the new one rolls in...

What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That's not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that's the burden of a year.

Wish For A Happy & Meditative Year Ahead! :)

"If you haven't got love in your heart you haven't got anything. No dreaming, no story telling."

Thanks For all the stories, Love.
