For all those who are Young, Young at Heart !!

keywords : 
A Country side trip,hitting desolate roads, breaks in steamy tea stalls, stopping by the beauty of woods, humming back to birds, eating mangoes from road side trees, clicking the moments, me, mummy, daddy, granny,chips, vadai, bonda and some smiles :) :)  

My slipper torn off and I had to walk some miles in a forest with my bare feet. I loved this moment where Mother Earth wanted to feel my feet's warmth...We blessed each other...

When I reach my 70’s, I will compile the series of moments,(without editing) to look at it from a distance, perceive its beauty and smile to myself. The very thought that I had passed through such beautiful moments in my journey would give me happiness (as if I am knowing it for the first time).  It will be called as the ‘Book Of my Life’ and it is my wish to show it out to my naughty grandchildren. Am I sound confusing? Or is it the clarity that makes it sound confused? I know, the more I go clear with my thoughts and dreams, the more confusing it may appeal to others. 
Even though this is my insane half speaking and it knows no language, I mean what I say. I want to write a book about my LIFE, picking up those ‘this and that moments'.
 An intuition tells me that my grandchildren  are going to peep in this Granny’s virtual blog.When they are my own blood, can't I expect that? And I love it  if the youngest among them, plays with my Chakki poocha !! It may sound crazy but you can't expect anything sensible from a dreamer pretending to be a 25 Female. My imagination can run wild and may hit even the moment where, I give tips for my grand son to propose a girl. Before letting it go too far, here is something sensible I would like to share.

Isn’t it interesting enough to share when I know that happiness of life rests in such moments? I was carried away into Nature, while reading this and I hope you would have the same kind of feel.I am happy just like a fish in water and will be happy till the water gets contaminated. 
I had already undertaken more than half of the activities of this list. And now in more wonder to explore the rest. .
I am planning to come out with weekly posts. Unless I set out something like this, I know my blog will be stagnating. So here the resolution of my weekly posts - my little dose of Sweet Nothings' will knock at your doors hereafter on every Sundays. I know, 'I am a PhD scholar and since I am not supposed to spend my time blogging', I can't write all the time. But I can't stop writing because when I write, I feed my soul. So I don't want to let my soul starve. 
I am not positive all the time, but I am trying to grow up and nurture my positive thinking. So here I am positive about my Sunday posts and I believe I will be able to make it, however screwed up I become. All days are not Sundays. Only Sundays are Sundays and so I will write on Sundays. 
So, forsake not my blog, forsake not my little Chakki..follow my blog and keep peeping in :)

Lie down on  the lap of Mother Earth

To wet the SOUL

If Paper boats  can come home Dreams can also come True!

Climb upon a tree.Fall down , fall down to RISE

P.S: For all, who are  young ,young at heart  and specially for ‘my grand children who will read this after 50 years’ …
