Wish list Wednesday No.4

A very happy new year to you all!
 Hope you have a wonderful, peaceful and a joyous 2013.

Welcome to Wish list Wednesdays.  In case you  are new and do not know what Wishlist Wednesdays are, it is a writing prompt hosted by me, every Wednesday, in association with Westland Books, the publishers of  my new book 'The Secret Wish list' which has been getting some great reviews.

Each wednesday I shall host a writing prompt and you can answer the questions in your blogs or in my comment box. One person wins a copy of the 'The Secret Wish list' which will be mailed to them by Westland.

I have really enjoyed reading all the entries in the previous prompt.
I have also managed to leave comments on many entries. (I might not have been able to leave on some for technical reasons--but I did try).

This time, the winning entry is :

  14. I Wish Everyone loved the way everyone wants to be loved. I wish everyone loved the kind of life one is living. I wish everyone loved the numerous blessings one is surrounded with which always go unnoticed. I wish everyone loved to see others being loved. I wish everyone loved to spread a smile on a stranger's face. I wish everyone loved to grow up, to feel the essence of letting go, to acknowledge the cure behind moving on. I so wish everyone loved to care for those who don't care. I wish everyone loved to love without expectations. I wish everyone loved to realise the beauty of nature. I wish everyone loved to be happy for the little things. I wish everyone loved to help a friend in need. I wish everyone loved to listen without judging. I wish everyone loved to light up someone's world. I wish everyone loved to sacrifice for others. I wish everyone loved to lighten the burdens of a heavy heart. I wish everyone loved to respect everyone. I wish everyone loved to do something personal between him and the Creator. I wish everyone loved to see how easy it is to embrace the good things. I wish everyone loved to eradicate evil from the world. I wish everyone loved to be secular. I wish everyone loved to love the not so lovely things of the world.. And I wish, I so wish everyone loved to express gratitude without expecting others to return the favours. I just wish everyone loved to see the world in a simple, uncomplicated, natural way! :) :)

Meghalya --kissed by the clouds (post 26)

Greetings from Meghalaya. True to it's name, it is a place kissed by the clouds. As I type this, from my picture window, the rain falls gently outside making a pitter-patter sound. It feels like I am living inside a poem.

We drove from Shillong to Mawlynnong, which has earned the moniker of Asia's cleanest village. The drive itself was arduous, as the mountain roads are terrible. Since I ave been so many times to the Western ghats in South India, this just seemed like a poor cousin in comparison. The roads in South India are much much better. After a bone-rattling torturous car ride, we arrived tired and hungry. We ate at a small restaurant (sticky rice, watery dal and some kind of delicious chutney made of onion, tomato and green chillies loosely pounded). Then we began our walk to see the living root bridges.

That was AMAZING. It is a sight worth seeing. I felt the forests in Avatar movie had come alive from the sets and had been resurrected here. I couldn't help marve…

Greetings from Cherrapunji --A heart shaped rock and other true stories (post 28)

We began our day with a trek down the mountains, through the pine forests. We didn't have a guide. Satish and I decided to explore the path on our own. It was slippery in many places, and we had to be certain of our footing, else we would have tumbled down. Tall coniferous trees formed dense canopies, through which sunlight couldn't trickle down. Ferns, spider-webs, mushrooms and pine-cones dotted the path. It was dark, damp, green and oh so pure. We walked down slowly, and a magnificent sight greeted us. I am sharing a picture I clicked.


We climbed back, contented happy souls. We found a vantage point from where we had a view of this very lake that we had trekked down to. I stood there and made a painting.


After breakfast, we left forCherrapunjee.

Just before we reached Cherrapunjee, we took a diversion went to The Garden of Caves in Laitmawsiang. The sight is mesmerising, stunning, fascinating. It is a must-do if you ever visit North-East. The main attraction is the natural…
