New Year 2015 at Bangalore

We spent our New Year’s Day at Bangalore this time. I am just penning a few thoughts on the year gone by and also jotting down a quick travelogue. There was not too much of travel as compared to our previous trip. Perhaps because we intended this to be a nice little break than a vacation of some sort.

It’s the end of another year and as is my tradition for past several years it is time to write a yearly write up. But then again, I was traveling around on new year’s eve and so wished to write a travelogue as well. Why not just club these together?

A Special Swiss Trip

Swiss is a dream place for both me and my wife. It was rather unfortunate that we couldn’t make the trip a success during our last visit to this land. But things turned out to be even more lovely and lively when we visited the place again with our baby boy!

I’ve imagined this many a time, but thoughts are not close enough describe the feeling I’ve had over the past three days. We came to Swiss again at last! The turbulent personal situations we went through just about one year back only made the trip sweeter!

My trip to Munich and the famous castles near Füssen that got clubbed with a nostalgic trip down the memory lane!

The weekend began with a bang to say the least! I managed to get my first SLR! Getting a new gadget is always such a good kick 😉

Well afterward there was more excitement to follow!

The One Rupee Coin

Below is my entry for a “Scribble” competition. I’ve never written under so many restrictions (1 hour; 250 words; 3 topics).

I wrote this in around 20 minutes and ran away from that place. I didn’t fancy a third place!

What’s the value of one rupee? Some lose/ gain a coin; for some its even more.

I was born poor, grew in tough circumstances and seen poverty in and out. My dad, a poor farmer, died in starvation – unable to pay up a few hundred rupees a month!

Mirror

A mirror speaks our true self…

In a fit of rage, I was!
With no one to reflect it upon,
With a rage burning within,
I turned to face the object of my distress – me!

I took a vase and hurled it at the mirror.
And with a crash it came down.
Cried I to it – “Break down you coward
The mirror seemed to reflect my senses – it cried back!
