Out of the blue there I met you : Part 1

This may seem interesting . It did to me at the very start though . 

Have you ever realized or may be wondered what happens when suddenly out of the blue / unlooked-for you run into someone from the past .  Not necessary run into but 'see' someone whom you used to know at one point in time in this life journey .  What happens ?!




Well,  ideally as an old saying goes 'Don't worry about the people in your past; There's a reason they didn't make it to your future' .  I may somewhat agree . But , like they also say , its sad when you know someone and then suddenly you 'used to know that someone.

A similar case with me happened during one of my travels .  At the airport waiting lounge ( btw : This was one of the few times when I actually availed the so called ' lounge benefit'  on my credit card and I must say it was worth it ) I was busy reading one of my most admired and an exceptional author - Yashodhara Lal's new release ' There's something about you '  and sipping my coffee when all of a sudden the door opened and right next to me was someone I used to know very well .

At the very start , I was really engrossed into the book and didn't notice who went in or stepped out let apart sitting next to me.  Then I hear someone speak - "New glasses  ?  Prada !! not bad "  . 

And then I was just staring at this person's eyes and vice-versa.  It was a sweep , if I may call as I just kept staring at this person . It's been almost 6 years since we last met or spoke and ever since then this person was 'deleted' from my life-list as I put it. 

But , right now I was clueless what to say or do.  God, I was thinking has this magic was unexpectedly turning tides  . In all this time I never really thought about this person and I was assuming the same from the other side. 

This is something you may have faced as well  . What does one talk ? It's so long that both of you are on your own and have decided to be that way . You are clueless about what is happening in that person's life , good or bad and same is the case with other one. What conversation in the world can you have or the last resort is to just wear your 'courtesy hat'  say a hello and step-out. 

My flight was almost an hour plus away and I am sure same was the case with that person .   

You must be wondering what I said. Well , I just said - " thanks . Hope you are well " .

There is more though that happened after this .....which will come in soon.... 

BTW - I have my own personal FaceBook page now and may I request you to  ' like' / 'comment' / 'share' , in case you like my writing or me :) .

Being an Indian Police Service Officer - an IPS

Everytime I watch movies like  - Sarfarosh , Gangaajal or Sehar , all I want to be, in this life is - an IPS officer. 

You may think its the power and the pride that comes with the post which an IPS officer holds or some of you may say its the sheer status the word IPS reflects upon one. 

The perks like most of us know, is having an unprecedented power, ( used to-be) a lal-batti , a huge team which does ' Jai Hind ' and a whole lot of a new world .





Given, I have had a good fortune to be in a family of friends who are IPS and know and understand from them what is it being an IPS officer most of the above mentioned movies or may be the image we tend paint in our minds is very different from what actually is an IPS officer and what all does s/he undergoes to be one.

I would put my take on this and share with you all my thoughts on how & what is a life of an IPS.

Studying is just a part of it.

The civil services examinations are considered not only the toughest in Indian competitive…

10 things to do in Kodaikanal

There is something about rains and open spaces that make me a little more than hilarious. And not only me, couple of others as well . 

Today, rains in Delhi bought back the festive cheer killing the week long SMOG clouding all around Delhi / NCR. As I am usually up for an early morning catch-up breakfast with a few special folks, we decided let's step out and drive away to a place far from the traffic snarls yet has a festive cheer.

The thought came to go to Kodaikanal

While you may think I am crazy and my rest of the gang mad but then this is how life should be - unplanned, unbiased and unimaginable yet positive . 




Known world over as the princess of hill stations, this place has made me fall in love all over again. My first thought on reaching here was, this can't be in India. 

This has to be a foreign location. Pristine surrounding, lovely people to talk to and spend time with and not to forget the bicycles that can be rented to take a ride or two around the famous Kodaikanal …

What if & What about

Every night when she tried to sleep, she thought of the 'what if's' in her life that lead to the 'what about's'..

What if tomorrow or the next moment she was dead..

What about the dreams and aspirations she wanted to fulfill..

What about the loved ones she fought an hour back..

What about her 'would be' husband and kids..

What about the life she ever imagined..

What about making it big..

What about the home for homeless cause she wanted to build all around..

What about the heartbreaks she went..

What about the travel she is yet to set foot upon..

What about the many thanks & apologies she owes to people..

What about her sweet kitten- Mando..

What about her family & friends..

As she was watching her favorite sitcom series she realized that one day she will not be around & yet there is so much to do. What she also thought was the time gone by, all these years, she was just basically waking up and sleeping down. In between, it was all air.
