We’re Just US, Not Unique!

There’s nothing unique about you or about me

or about us stumbling into each other

deciding to make a go for it

beginning a life together

There’s nothing special about the way it all went

sometimes well, sometimes crazy

nothing extraordinary about the songs we claimed ours

when we were happy & when we were gloomy

 

Other people have lived together

have wept, fought & laughed

they’ve made children & memories

cherishing all phases of life

 

People have loved each other

in fraction of a second or in the course of ages

made promises that were kept broken

latter asked to be forgiven or remembered

 

There’s nothing unique about any of this

it’s not about what’s unique & what’s not

it’s all about what’s yours & only yours

The valuable moments we both share

truly meant heavenly just for us

PS: We’re Just US, Not Unique!

The Big Fat Indian Wedding :)

A week to my marriage

I woke up only to fall back asleep

Only To witness the rage

Of an angelic wedding in my heart so deep

I dreamt following my Mr. Right

Whooping as an angel on a carriage

My 32 teeth out smile at his very sight

The next second- “I Love You” was his message


The big day was there-0n Feb 11

Nervous was I, seeking how would it all go

Flutters in stomach and splutters on all minds

Witnessing the marvelous decor of the hall

I walk down slow & in all elegance

Down the stoopy stairs

The very long royal blue gown spreading all over

Portraying me as an angel – similar to one in my dreams

2N1A64492N1A66852N1A6427

Spectacular stage warmly welcomes

Complete it was with us at the center

People I know in front and the ones I love beside me

Happiness was bestowed upon ME

Phoolon ka taroon ka, sabka kehna hai                        2N1A6626

Ek hazaaron mein, meri behna hai

My sweet lil bro sings for me upright on stage

Tears of love flew down my cheek unknowingly

In Que they came, greeted and smiled

Tiny large n lovely gifts I held

Small pep talk with my husband

Had me forget d pain of burning heels

Next lovely morning I’m up with joy

Decked up n jewellery on

Up in d air I glide in a doli

As a queen did I truly feel

2N1A6935 2N1A6949 2N1A6967 2N1A7150

Moment he tied the mangalsutra

I was his all of my life

To be immensely loved and to love

Was the promise built in as his wife

The big fat Indian wedding was it

Pomp elegance royalty and cheer

Did people remember for further years

A dream come true n beyond that

Is what I’d cherish & relive 🙂

TELL ME….!

Tell me how you feel

Tell me what’s going on in your mind

Tell me of your deep down emotions

that keep you occupied

IMG_4404Tell me your secrets

for I shall know you better

Tell me your dreams

for I lead you up till there

Tell me all the little things

that are tangled around your head

Tell me all your worries

that make your eyebrows dwell down

Tell me how much you love

the extent you could go for me

Tell me that you care for me

in which ways and how?

Tell me you’re mine

and only mine till we die

Tell me you’ll walk by my side

all along in sadness and joy 🙂

There’s something in a RIDE with U <3

There’s something in a ride with U

Something magical in your look,

Intense enough to melt my heart

You pull me into your orbit

 

Tearing my fears apart

The way you look at me,

Light up my face with joy

Unspoken words

You want me to understand

I hug tightly to comfort U

Nudge on my head,

Is how U say U love me

Mild kiss in the air

Flies to touch my foolish heart

Dun U ever change, keep the breathless charm

B’coz I luv U

For the way U look through my eyes

All through the ride ❤

A Jackfruit like girl
her walls thorny & hard
to barge in being tough & sad
I dunno why U chose ME!
                                                                    Plump gal who’s much of a Guy
                                                                    her likes being your dislikes
                                                                    nothing in common
                                                                    I dunno what U see in ME!
An enigmatic personality
not much to be appreciated
who doesn’t put LOVE in words for U
I dunno why U care for ME!
                                                                     SMILE her possessed jewel
                                                                     shared nothing except that
                                                                     was that all U ever needed?
                                                                     I dunno why U love ME!
This belief of mine
helplessness & guilt filled
might vanish all for once
Convince ME I’m Wrong …..

Nominated for LIEBSTER AWARD

I’m overwhelmed to receive my first award- the “LEIBSTER AWARD” from Chris, Cee & Sobha.

liebster_award-1

Just can’t express my  over the top joy (which is on cloud Nine),  at the moment. (Even bloggers are speechless at times). I always wondered, how to get these awards, how they work and stuff. Now, I’ve got one. I can feel the  tremendous amount of zeal in me  to blog much more and bag even more awards ( Greedy me :P) . I’m just a budding blogger who just needed such a support and boost. I sincerely thank both Chris & Cee for acknowledging me & providing me inspiration to write more. You guys rock 🙂

HERE GOES THE RULES:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and post a link to their Liebster Award blog post.
  • Answer the ten questions given to you by the person who nominated you.  Bonus questions are optional.
  • Nominate five to ten of your favorite blogs with fewer than 200 followers.  Provide a link to each, and notify them their nomination.
  • List ten new questions for your nominees to answer. You may include more than ten questions, marked as bonus questions, but remember your nominees only need answer your first ten.
  • Include the acceptance rules in your post, so your nominees know what to do.

Answering time for ME!

  1.  List at least three things in nature do you find most beautiful?

What a great start. Loved this question as all my favorite things that I hold close to my heart are from nature.

Sunflower-public-domain-1                  STARS: They’re my sole inspiration for everything I’ve achieved in life. They’re bright, elegant and shine lovely. 🙂

  •                  SUNFLOWERS: I just turn happy once I see them no matter how sad I am,  carrying loads of worries. Sunflowers are beautiful to eye upon. I’d stare a day long, given a chance.
  •                  LUSH GREEN LAWN: Fluffy, lush green lawns are such a beauty and a lovely place to roll around, relax & think your mind out. Like ” Peace In heaven”.

2.  What individual item of food would you not eat, even if it was served to you at the Queen/President’s dinner table? (Something ordinary.)

I’m a big foodie, I like all kinds of food 🙂 . Surely, I wouldn’t have green tea if provided. I know it’s healthy but somehow I find it very hard to gulp it in. Even cold drinks. They just don’t go in my stomach. (Still on the verge to find as to why?)

3.  For your main meal do you prefer sweet and sour, hot and spicy, spicy and sweet, bitter, salty, bland or other?

” Spicy & Sweet”. Just love the combo. ❤

4.  What is success for you?

I love U guys for this question. Success to me has been a slight different perspective from the people around me. ( I can share without any fear now. Yay 🙂 )

Success to me is living with a big fat loving family who love me immensely, with whom I can chat, play & dine all the time. Have no fear in me to share anything that crosses my mind. A peaceful, happy established life in future owning a company of my own. The biggest success would be when people recognize me as similar to my loving Dad. ❤

5.  What is your biggest fear or phobia?

One fear that I always fail to kill even after trying hard for years long….. ” Fear of what others would think if I let out my thoughts”.  So came blogging into my life as a start to overcome it.

  1. Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? Plus what would the 8th dwarf’s name be? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey)

I’m a mix of 3 dwarfs, can’t just pick one entirely. Sorry, I’ve always been the HYBRID kind. More of HAPPY- Smile is my jewel, always bestowed on my face; DOC- truly I am in all ways, thinking wisely & taking on leadership; GRUMPY- as I’m always the first one to be on my friend’s side for support in hard times.

The 8th dwarf would be “RETICENT”.

doc dwarfhappydwarf grumpydwarf

7.  If you were a crayon, what color would you be?

“GREEN, GREEN, GREEN”! My best color with which I would wanna turn everything into a pleasant greenery. ( Even my room is entirely green).

8.  Is the glass half empty or half full? What is in the glass?

Tricky one to just answer if it’s full or half.  Well, I’d rather see it as a scope to fill it soon proving the potential.

9.  How did you get the name of your blog?

People usually have this urge to think of what their blog name would be when they start but I never had one such. I’ve always called myself ” EdIt EnIgmatIc” and thus that’s my blog name too. It’s all there clear in my “About ME” page 🙂

10.  If life was ‘just a bowl of cherries’… which fruit would you rather be..?

I’d be Pineapple or Jackfruit 🙂  Tough outside but very sweet inside.  My life just as ME 🙂

MY ADORABLE NOMINEES ARE: 

HERE ARE YOUR QUESTIONS TO ANSWER:

  1. What is that shape that you relate yourself to?

  2. What (object/person/activity) turns you happy immediately when you’re sad?

  3. What’s the best one-liner you would wanna say to your loved ones? (Like mine is ” I LOVE US” )

  4. What meaning does blogging hold in your life?

  5. What’s your ultimate destination you would wanna go?

  6. Are you an atheist?

  7. Which song would you never get bored listening any number of times at any damn age?

  8. Share one crazy stuff you’ve done.

  9. Wealth or Power? Peace or War? Content life or Royal life?

  10. Temme about your best post of your blog.

I hope you guys had fun answering these questions. Reach out more & more people.  Have fun blogging guys. 🙂

Love & hugs

ANJIE 🙂

AMBIVERT I am :)

Introvert or Extrovert? Introvert or Extrovert? Introvert, Extrovert………………………………….

ambivertsjpg

My mind was never gonna stop until it found the apt answer. The article of being an introvert by Chris had literally made my heart pounce hard with this question. It was always on min. Everywhere & all the time.

I had to find an answer & how did I exactly start? Read all posts on this issue, googled, wiki’ed, TED, et etc . What & what not did I try? Ended it up by reading Cee’s article today. This research study of mine lead me into a huge trouble of answering another heapful of questions that erupted.

I had heard research work helps you find answers. Mine was a totally reverse case. It led me to the curiosity of answering the rest that were busy being popping one after the other in mind. Well, I gave a try to find answers even for them. Eventhough, I thought it’d be tiring,  at the end I was relieved & joy was all over my face.

Phew! Answer, I got it. 🙂

I’M AN AMBIVERT”

I always assumed I was an introvert but also had a slight doubt as to why I’m loud with my friends, why would I love talking to few particular people & why happiness is all to me??? Easiest way, I just presumed I was an introvert, so I couldn’t  be the same socializing, loving type person with all.

That truly isn’t the case. I’m an ambivert who loves being around people gaining social attention and even prefers a lone time to think upon at times. I am of this kind.

Reading the articles and comments upon various blogs, I found I wasn’t fully one of them. There were few things that I didn’t agree upon & have same thoughts as they had. That was my realization moment. if I was an introvert, I’d be just as them all.

“I’m something else. ” That’s when I began my research hunt.

Infinite other questions too answered. 🙂

So, it’s ” I’m an AMBIVERT”.  Are there any more in here ???

SPARE ME….!

I'm a girl of substance 
Passion, Strength, Forgiveness define me 
Wrong notion practiced so strong
You call me " Useless piece of chunk"
SPARE ME 

A strong apt argument
Merely heading onto your defeat
You call me " Adamant Stubborn girl" 
SPARE ME  

Laughter so loud
of reminisce so lovely
Not realizing the inner fact
You call me a " mad psycho"
SPARE ME

My bravery, my boldness at times
an attempt to get over my fear
You call me a " Lady Rambo"
SPARE ME

Silence, my unspoken words
Embracing the true care & affection
Yet, You call me a " Bloody Coward"
SPARE ME

Idiotic horrible stuffs you blabber
I just don't get the hang of it
Stare, Giggle & criticize too much
You call me " Dumbstruck"
SPARE ME

Victory of mine in a man's world
Success jumping onto my side
You call me " Lucky by Chance"
SPARE ME

Tears rolling over till my cheek
Sadness deep in my heart
Such a disgrace, you never felt
SPARE ME

I've a life I cherish to live
Lemme be "JUST ME", for I need no blending
Set your notions RIGHT
Bloody, you better be QUIET
For now, I'll show you my MIGHT
Get set to beg us " SPARE ME" 

My first SYW post – Excited :)

” Share your World”- Yes, I’d surely do now that I’m a part of SYW just since this moment.

share-your-world2

I check out the recent SYW  prompt, and I see the questions are inspired by Chris’s post of an introvert that I loved reading two days back. Nice kick-start to me. I’m all so excited to be a part of SYW.

Here are my answers to those amazing questions.

Do you recharge your energy by going out with friends for a good time or by spending with quiet time alone?                                                                                                                         FRIENDS- They’re my medicine for whatever shortcomings I go through, even if the cause for trouble was them. A long ride with cool breeze kissing your cheeks, a bang on chat on absolutely silly stupid topic, looking at our facebook pics together, scream looking at the sky from terrace, cook together which turns out to absolute carbon black all time :D. All these things would just charge me up with lots & lots of spirits to do any work that’s tagged IMPOSSIBLE. The problem prior would be just lost in my mind. That’d be either solved or would it have vanished as that would be my last priority to give thought at the moment of joy. So yes, outing with friends, anytime.

What is the most number of blankets you’ve ever had on your bed?                                               I usually am used to just 1 blanket however cold it might be but that’s not my max. Its 2 as my mom affectionately draws in her blanket over me cuddling all hard when she senses I’m feeling cold. That’s how the heart of all moms are. Loves & hugs  

You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met. Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself?                                                                 I wouldn’t  as I surely know I’d feel so out of place. I’ve always needed to go along with someone close to me, be it anywhere. That’s my both strength and weakness.  

Do you like talking to people on the phone? Or do you prefer voice mail or email?                  Talk, Talk,Talk for endless hours….. Laughter, those little teeny-weeny gestures of ah, oh, hmm, aha been heard, silence for a moment on awkward stuff, blabbering sounds all just can be witnessed talking. that feel never comes to me in mails. Voice mail maybe I would consider for a while. Talking on the phone is the best for me. 🙂   

I’m done. I’m gonna love being part of ” Share Your World”.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

 

 

Daily Prompt: The best of BFF’s Gyan

 index1
When it comes to BFF’s, luck has bestowed me in a handful of them whom I love unconditionally. The rapo we share is amazing & one worth cherishing even after death.
Yet, there’s always a best even among the better lot. So id the case with mine. One girl whose been my all time favorite BFF is just one big chunk of my roller coaster life. We’ve been together through thick & thin & now we share a bond that’s beyond limits of understanding.
Moments lived together, endless talks, crazy stuff we giggled doing it all brought us very close. She always said one thing to me that rings in my mind every now & then. 
                                                    “Trust your heart for you, Play the mind for others”
She had observed how gullible a person I was & how easily sways my thoughts accordingly to theirs rather than sticking to my own. She taught me how to stick by my conscience & what my heart thought & felt. That gyan kept me away from bad people who mislead others, who bitch around, who ill treat and much more.
 
That piece of advice of hers definitely has made me a better person now. I proudly take the honor to announce I’m  no more gullible. Yes, I do listen to all of what they say but I play my mind to change their thoughts if they’re on the wrong side of the aisle.
BFF’s advice Take it seriously and adapt. They know you better than you do. I just did.  it’s now your turn if you haven’t begun yet.
 

TRAPPED IN BRIDGE :( HOPE AWAKENS :)

Sunday Photo Fiction: January 26th 2014.

“GET-SET-Go- the adventurous way” was the idea of 7 friends who won the football inter-college championship. They set out to explore a place they weren’t completely aware. That made it a “COOL ACT” for them.

Out they set and moved to this bridge, diving through, feeling refreshed by the calm water. They yelled out names, splashed water everywhere, giggled loads and even tried dancing against the odds of rushing water. How lovely is teenage to explore things & do stuff against all odds.

Joy was all around. Just when all seemed like a perfect victorious celebration, they were dragged down with massive force of water. It was unstoppable. Few yelled for help, few were perplexed, few just couldn’t figure out what was going on. They flooded in different directions, gasping, breathing hard, and yelling for help.

Two hit hard on the rock; they banged their head and died. This horrifying scene brings in the entire urge for the rest to survive somehow. Few cling onto the deep-rooted trees, few climb up the rocks and stay in the hope of survival.

Days pass and yet no help. Hunger and emotional run breakdown 3 more. Hope was bestowed in just those 2 friends who clinged onto their hope of again living the world they cherished. After a week, they were rescued by the police there.

HOPE WINS OVER THE BRIDGE!!!!!

You’re the OnE I Miss

“You’re the one I miss…..” is in dedication to my best friend who now is quite far located than where I stay. She’s the one who makes me be “the real ME” anywhere and everywhere. In her memoirs, my pen just flows writing this poem.

DSC02607
Times of life, When I had you
So close, Just beside Me
Rocked every bit of a moment Whohoooo
Antique & Unique (M.A.D.U) were We
You’re the one I miss…..
                                            On Christmas eve
                                           Plump Santa, all blush red
                                           To grab gifts, did all run upsleeve
                                           Yours to be the first, is what I need
                                           You’re the one I miss…..
 
Sharp 12 ‘o’ clock of 23rd July
L’il sleepy head, blurting Happy birthday
To surprise me, you did lie
“I Love you” is all I ever say
You’re the one I miss…..
 
                                           Ambiguity,Confusion & Anger
                                          When on mind, disasters occur aloud
                                          Those times, you-my mood changer
                                          Made me see, silver lining of my l’il cloud
                                          You’re the one I miss…..
 
Yummy pasta @ DB, I smell
Across the seat, your presence felt
Memoirs of past, in mind they dwell
Within a minute, they just melt
You’re the one I miss…..
 
                                          Sunday, my lazy morning
                                          Trring rings my mobile, & you scream
                                          ” Just 30 min”, comes an authoritative warning
                                          Ugh! me on time, just in dream
                                          You’re the one I miss…..
 
Friendship of yours, means my whole world
I’m aware, I rock & blossom yours too
“I LOVE US”, quote we foresee
In accordance, return now. Pack Go
You’re the one I miss…..

Style- Tenderly Affirmative!

 
Tip to toe, style of his own
lovely smile, always shown; 
thoughts he does preach
admirable, factual, to heart they reach; 
tender care, love he spreads
makes him, the man of good deeds; 
his friendship, so strongly bound
happiness in abundance, all around; 
Support at hardships, held positive
lessons he taught, proper & curative; 
Joy & values, he has overflown everywhere
tells me, to be ME in here….!
