As always, Christmas has brought me the good news this year too! After almost an year of Blogging and striving to impress my favourite Search Engine Mentors I have been given a Pagerank of "2" for which I am extremely grateful. Knowing Google for its strict assessment techniques and technical superiority I value this greatly and will try to improve further. Thanks Google! I wish my beloved readers and followers a Very Happy, Prosperous and Eventful New Year and may all your desires bear fruit giving you abundant joy!

Christmas has always been synonymous to good fortune and happiness for me. I always received good news and happiness during this period and I started looking forward to it from my childhood. More than the various gifts and candies that one received as a child, it was the pleasure of meeting so many people, friends and relatives that made it memorable. Although I am not a Christian by birth I developed a fond affinity to it. I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a very Happy and eventful New Year bringing Health, Wealth and Prosperity!

Old Age

I think of those eventful years
When I was at my Prime
Life looked so beautiful in all its Glory
With all the Tact and skill
I wrote the pages of my Story
Never did I stop to think all this could end
I was in a dream that took me places
Never remembered all the phases
That came and went in my Journey
When I woke up and stared in the mirror
Found an old man looking like a smear
Aha, this is the phase when you have all the time
To ponder upon your deeds and triumphs

It Was in the fall of 1960 that John and Melisa were married. Being the son of a very successful business man, John was very educated and well mannered.During his tenure in the Law School he met Melisa and they fell in Love. Soon after their marriage John started his own Law Firm and was doing very well due to his excellent nature and dedication to work, which attracted the clients. They had everything that a young couple would aspire for.

Melisa got pregnant in the middle of next year and was looking forward to the baby around November 1961. She underwent the routine tests and was found ok till the 5th month. On a fateful day in August during a routine examination the Gynecologist noticed something wrong with the foetus and paged for the Senior Consultant. After hours of checks and cross checks they found that there was a congenital deformity in the heart of the foetus. This news broke the hearts of John and Melisa and they were dumbfounded. They couldn’t understand why this was happening to them.They enquired the Doctors about the chances of the child making it and how bad was the condition as to its life expectancy. The Doctor's diagnosis was that the condition was bad in that there was no known remedy for corrective action and the life expectancy was perhaps 6 to 8 years only. This pitted John and Melisa against their worst dilemma of their life. They consoled themselves with great difficulty and decided to have the baby and give it their unfettered love and affection for as long as they could with the grace of GOD.

Adrian was born in November and he was a handsome baby resembling his Dad and his mom’s blue eyes. It was impossible to even think that such a lovely baby was destined for a very short life. As a child, Adrian was very sharp and intelligent. He learnt to speak and read alphabets very early for children of his age and was in pre-school when he was 3 years. The symptoms of his ailment began to appear then gradually. He started getting very tired and was panting for breath with any little activity. Could not run like other children. It is then they decided to slowly break the news about his illness to him. They assured him that they would do everything in their power to get him cured. Adrian was not very disturbed to learn about his malady and seemed reconciled to it. After six months he could not stand the strain of attending the school and the journey to school really hurt him. So they decided to get him a tutor at home. As a bright child he managed to do very well in all his subjects. John and Melisa never stopped praying and hoped for some miracle to save their child. Adrian was very fond of his parents and loved them very much. One day Adrian talked about one of his school mates to Melisa. He said that his friend was an orphan and that he was staying with the friends of his erstwhile parents. He talked about how the boy missed his parents and wished they were alive. On his seventh birthday Adrian felt very uncomfortable and was taken to the Hospital to be put on ventilators. John and Melisa felt a creepy feeling that the end was near. When Adrian could get his breathing to some level of comfort they kissed him and told him that they loved him so much that they cannot live without him. Adrian looked them in the eye and said “ I know you love me and want to give me everything. You can still do it Dad! There are kids in my school who have no parents and would love to have you as theirs. Why don’t you take one of them and give them what you cannot give me. Is it Ok Dad?” They were spell bound by this suggestion.
After 3 days it was all over and John and Melisa adopted a very small baby from the neighborhood orphanage and named him Adrian.

Perched atop very
Ominously and just
Lingering with adept
Enthralling dicey manouvres

Dancing with gay abandon
Away to Glory
Never did she
Care for your comment
Either way, be it
Rant or Praise

Of all the human emotions, Ambition is the one which differentiates between the likely super achiever and a mediocre individual. Without an Ambition there can be no achievement or accomplishment. It is not just a simple wishful thinking to be someone or to achieve something that can be called an Ambition. As Shakespeare said, “Ambition should be made of sterner stuff”. An ardent, strong desire to seriously accomplish a Goal is required to call it an Ambition. Once you have the ardent desire you automatically begin to do things which enables you to get closer and closer to your Goal as the drive is more from your sub-conscious mind rather than the conscious. Your deeper desires get enshrined in your sub-conscious mind and a careful meditative / auto suggestion technique could do wonders to make you the person you desired to be. Yes, it is true and I have witnessed real life cases.

Striking Aimlessly
Having no Plans
Overwhelmed by Luck
Throwing a few hits

Indulging in wager
Not caring for order

Throws life in disarray
Have faith in yourself
Earn with hard work

Desist temptations to swerve
And never take chances
Remain steadfast and disciplined
Knowledge lands your shots.

Bag Lady

Behold the Lady
Alone and homeless
Grieving her Luck

Loitering Rich Promenade
Angry with Life
Destitute, Not by choice
Yearning, heed her voice

Better Do not act Smart
Advice often is most unwelcome
Criticise only if you must
Know your own weakness first

Simple are the words spoken
Everlasting are their impact often
Attrition is what it creates
Try, Change before it Aches

Dearest are those with Love
Ready to Die for you
Incessant uncalled advice made
Very rude which please forbid
End chatter stay intact
Rest and let others Act

Writhing in Hold
Resisting to Yield
Exquisite to Watch
Slippery to Catch
Try and Outsmart
Lie Low to Start
Intriguing as it Lasts
Never say Aye to Surrender
Great to win every Bout

Clouds of agony fade when
His doors to you Open
Right on time sure He comes
In Day or be at Night
Soothing pain or distress
Tales of woes he could mend
My Lord the Jesus Christ
Always there as my Guide
Shall be christmas All Days

Amazing wild life
Frightening old beliefs
Rigorous climatic condition
Innocent native tribe
Caught in Poverty
A sad dark continent
