Guest post by Satish!!

We celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary on 27th April. I wanted to make this post a memorable one.So I asked Satish if he would write a guest post on my blog--and he liked the idea! So here is the first post written by him.
We are heading for a beach resort to celebrate. (Just the four of us--somehow we both didn't want to leave the kids behind. ) See you all when I get back and have a great weekend!
Cheers

PS. It’s 13 years since I got married to her. 13 years is indeed a long time and in legal parlance one more year and that would amount to life imprisonment.This is indeed life imprisonment though in a very pleasant way and yes there is one, regret that I do have.Why didn’t I meet her earlier! Sounds clich├ęd indeed. But when you have a friend as good as her and the best companion one could ask for such questions are logical. The 13 years have had their share of ups and downs, no doubt. However when I look…

Things that matter

Are you like me? Or am I the only one? I suspect many are like me, except that they don’t think about it as much as I do, and don’t analyse and dissect things as much as me. I don’t know. Or maybe they do, but don’t talk about it.Two great things happened to me.1. I got a mail saying that my poem ‘Who killed imagination?’ had been shortlisted and will soon be published in a Poetry book series, being launched by Sulekha, in the month of May. I was asked to send my contact details, full name and a short bio about myself.I was excited and happy. I shared the news with three of my closest friends(non-bloggers), who were happy for me too. But somehow I felt blogging about it would seem like boasting. Then I spoke to Guru . He was excited as well, and said I MUST blog about it and that he would definitely buy a copy of the book.(Thanks Guru!) But of course, I have to dissect everything—and he is a man after all. (Sorry Guru!) So I mentioned it to Prats. And she was delighted as well. She sa…

IF tomorrow comes

Most of us go through life running away from what we really want to do. How many of us can say “Oh—what a wonderful Monday morning. I am so looking forward to going back to work?” You can? Then I suspect you are having an affair either with your boss or your secretary or a colleague (added after J's comment! :-))—or you must belong to that rare breed who really love their jobs! Often a brush with mortality is what it takes to serve as a wake up call. If you are in your twenties, things like death and ‘living life to the fullest’ will probably be the last things on your mind. You are busy in your first or second jobs, buying a home, a car, finding the right person to spend the rest of your lives with. If you are in your thirties, you probably have a home, maybe kids and are trying to raise them. If in, forties and fifties maybe you have established yourself in your chosen career (or at the very least decided what you want to do) and maybe coping with a myriad issues, realizing fa…
