Here is the writing Prompt for TOUCH Thursday Number 3.

Anjali is a character in the book. She has dated 6 men and rejected all of them. She is still looking for Mr.Right. She feels it is hard to get what she is looking for.

Her friend Sriram Surve, would say the same about women--that it is hard to understand women.

If you are a guy, write  3 things (or more!) that you really want from women.

If you are a woman, write 3 things (or more)  that you really want from men.

Please carry the TOUCH banner if you want Westland to consider your entry.

Results will be declared next Thursday.

    3 things or more i really want from men:-
    1)He should miss me as if i was the one he could not have..
    2)TOUCH me like i was a newborn or a flower of spring or a butterfly's wing..
    3)THE feeling of love should be like maybe one of us is going to die tomorrow .
    4)ONE fight or ONE day of not meeting or anyONE should not come in between us.
    5)YOU & I should not be the case..It should always be "WE".
    6)CANNOT should'nt be the word between us. Everytime it should be CAN do(anything) for YOU.
    7)HAVE friendship,understanding,honesty,trust and attraction even at the age of 70 between us...

  16. Touch Thursday No.3

    The three things I want are

    1. Should be a Respectful person in the society because the one who gives respect gets respect.
    2. should accept me whatever I am. I have come in this world with a name and a fame, and its worth more than anything.
    3. Should listen to me and try to understand what I m trying to explain. Should not take decisions in a single go and try to understand the circumstances.

  17. Posted :-)

  18. Fun to post on the age old, ongoing discussion.. As John Gray says, Indeed, "Men are from Mars Women are from Venus"..

  19. posted---feeling great--- :) :)

  20. Hello mam following are the things ,which I want that my Mr Right should possess…..
    First of all I want that he should respect his ownself,because the person who respect & love his ownself can only give this things to others that’s what I believe.He should respect me for what I am, he should respect my thoughts,my opinion,& most important thing is that he should respect my parents & treat them with lots of love and affection,because whatever I am today is because of them and they are the first priority in my life & I really love them like any other mama’s & dyada’s girl. 
    2) Trust:-
    The relationship of any two persons is like a rubber band,holded by two of them,if any of them ignore or give up to balance it then that rubber band quickly will hurt the other trust play a very important role in any relationship to balance it from both the sides.In future I know I will never face such situation but suppose if the time comes where no one will believe or trust me for my certain dids or because of some misunderstanding then that time I want him to seat in front of me,hold my hands,look into my eyes & say that’’I trust you,I believe in you,& I don’t want any kind of explanation from you,just get one thing that I don’t know weither your shadow will remain forever with you or not ,but I will always be there for you in every situation of your life,our life.
    I think no one can describe this word perfectly as our heart feels.Its something wonderful,its something unbelievable,its something magical,its something beautiful.Don’t know how to describe it,but I heard that various kind of people do various kind of things to show their love to their love ones,but for me in love I want only one thing from my lifepartner that’s his precious time rather than any other expensive gifts or various kind of mug-up love speeches. 
    He should give his time or make himself available for me to take a long walk at night,to enjoy the drops of first rain in monsoon,to cook surprisedly when he want to make me smile, to share a cup of coffee with me & rather speaking mug-up love lines I just want him to say that’’ I genuinely care for you and love you,don’t ever leave me alone ‘’
    This kind of love I want from my Mr.Right 

    Thank you preeti mam for making us think about such a important topic It was a nice promt and had great time while writing.

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…

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…
