He stood next to me to check if he is taller, the day we met. Being tall or short didn’t matter to me, till then!
It was an addiction and my world revolved around it. I stopped it for 4 years and suddenly my world revolves around me!
A special place where I connected with the night sky, watching the stars tumble over me. Nila soru, moonlight dinners were enjoyed in our terrace, as we visualised sitting by a stream, lying on the grass and watching the moonlit night!
Hug them, touch them – they are alive and can feel our touch. “Were you my friend in my previous birth?” I wonder!

This flower has a story to tell About its mother plant And how it came to bloom…
The plant has a story too… About how it was part of a bigger plant The harsh way in which this branch was broken How it felt barren and naked Devoid of leaves Feeling dried up Till it found this pot And the wet soil To hold on To nourish itself To make new leaves And to be the mother plant now!
The pot has a story Of how it was made And how the potter sold it…
The balcony has a story Of how it hosted this garden Filled with these beautiful pots And the plants, of course… Of how bare it was before And now the scene has changed… Of how it enjoys the sunshine The breeze The rain that splashes And the joy of being clicked!
Every single thing In nature Has a story If only we can listen!
I have a story too To share Of how I took up a career In Engineering And then left it To embrace motherhood And after two decades Of running around the mill Trying to figure out What to do with my life I found a hold In Yoga! I went there to heal myself… Now I have learnt To be a trigger A nudge A seed To others And help them Find their own healing! I am a teacher And a student Of yoga And how it is a part of our lives!
You also have a story Am sure of it… Which you can share I am a listener…
