An Auroville Experience, Again...

The Matrimandir
Don’t ask me why, what and how come? Out of all the places of interest in Pondy, Auroville is my favourite destination. There is some sort of a fascination for this place, which cannot be really explained. Today being Mother’s birthday, Auroville was expected to be crowded and it indeed was.


My long cherished wish – a visit to the Globe, materialized today. I guess no place on Earth can provide you so much peace! Gauri had expressed his desire to go to the view point, so we went there too. Though he wasn’t happy about walking all the way, once we started he was all excited! On the whole, it was an awesome experience at Auroville today.

This pathway looked awesome!

My favourite spot in Auroville, the Big Banyan Tree.
We were lucky to have it all for for ourselves for a while!

Pinneyum Pinneyum....

I am in love with him…

To be more specific – I am in love with his words…

Not even a single day passes without his presence…

He mesmerizes me with his words…

He wins over me the moment he steps in…

He captivates me with the way he builds a special world around me…

He allures me into a dream in no time…

He tempts me into listening to him again and again….

He attracts me with the play with his words…

And, I love the time I spent with him…

Just like the best one from his pen, he compels me into following him again and again…..

And just like a magnet I get pulled and get lost in the world of his songs…

To name a few - Pinneyum pinneyum, Junile Nilamazhayil, Tamaranoolinaal, Karmukilvarnante, Ethrayo janmamyi, Oru rathri koodi, Karimizhi kuruviye, Marannittumenthino........the list may go on......

Just remembering Gireesh Puthencherry, who even in his absence, continues to put us under his spell with the much-loved songs in Malayalam!

Listen to this, you will get hooked to it...One of his best compositions.....

Today, I guess I should make the wheels of my mind start running! Long time since I looked back or looked ahead to come up with something innovative! Somehow, I had been and still is in that “dejected” kinda mood! I know I have not written for a while, I have not really done anything fresh, I have not tried to be in that energetic, enthusiastic mode, still I am happy! 

Generally, we say – There are only three things that women need in life – food, water and compliments!!!!! Lol! 

Sometime back, while talking to a person whom I admire a lot, I received this comment – Your enthusiasm is really contagious, I get energized after talking to you for a while!!!!!!!!!!! Man, that was something! 

Recently, one of my friends told me, “When I am upset, I love to sit and talk to you, it totally changes me and my attitude!” 

As these are from people who are really close to me, I can never take it as “flattery”. Don’t ever go in the direction to think that I am trying to list out the compliments I have received! What I am trying to do is to figure out where has all that enthusiasm gone!!!!!!! Where do I regain that “drive” to propel me forward! 

After the initial rounds of analysis, there are a few lingering questions in my mind! My mind rolled back and got me a few cues! I guess I would be one teacher who would say “Marks don’t matter much in life.” Sure, I do believe in that! I can surely find the clue here – Isn’t this ‘question paper – answer script’ thingy too uninspiring for a person like me? Yeah, I was caught in that trap for a while! But ,I had no choice! 

Time for Change! 

So, to sum up, there should be a few tasks! 

Task 1 – Whatever little bits of idea that are scattered in my brain have to be pulled together to come up with something really interesting for the kids! 

Task 2 – Determine never to be idle! 

Task 3 – I should rediscover the Bliss that work can offer Me! 

With these, I may be able to regain my composure and spirits and get hold of the energy that is infectious and enthusiasm that is contagious, something which I had possessed sometime back!!!!!!!!!!!

B/w I make a century here - This is my 100th post! Should that be adding some enthu???
