Is A Spoonful of Sugar Enough?

August 10, 2009

Here is one of my most favourite musical lessons! Here you go, have a peek.

So, did you like it? I am sure most of you will. But is a spoonful of sugar enough? I am quite greedy, I would love the whole jar! When I am down, my family rallies around to make me okay, the skies smiles sweetly and the rain does it dance. The musical notes fill the air and so does the smell of sweet honey! Well, it is not like I am the center of the world, but when I am down I pretend it is so and all the little thingsΒ happensΒ to make me feel better!

But sugar ain’t enough, honey!! A pinch of salt will do the trick for that reality check that we all need ever so once a blue a moon! A box of chilli powder to shoo the evil spirits boredom!! When food get boring, I shake the chilli shaker harder and I guess it is needless to say, we end up hopping like crazy. πŸ˜€ A bittergourd once a while to contrast with the good things in our lives. A goooseberry (amla) for that little shock for your brain cells which keeps you on a healthy high. πŸ™‚ Some chilled wine to sit back with, to see how it all turned out.

I have Β no appropriate words to conclude with the above ramble but may I share the news I got in my mail today? I have been ranked 66 by Indiblogger. Higher the rank, better it is – like a cricket score, as they say. So, some pinches of salt welcome to bring me back to Planet Earth!! πŸ™‚

I have been MIA for a while now and here is my sweet friend Ramesh’s thought on the same:

Where is the thoughtful train ?
In a station waiting for passengers to get in?
Or, has it slowed down to negotiate a curve ?
Or, has somebody forgotten to refuel it ?
Or, is it waiting at a red signal ?
Or, is it simply pondering on life ?

We’re missing the train for a week now
Anxiously waiting forΒ its charming whistle
Our day seems a little incomplete
For we’ve grown to love its joyful passing by
I know chugging along is sometimes hard work
But then that’s the price for being so thoughtful

Come on thoughtful train, we need you
We miss your “kooo chuck chuck chuck ….”

Thanks so much Ramesh. πŸ™‚ You just gave me my whole jar of sugar!!

  10. Congratulations for 66 rank. I am sure many more milestones to conquer…

    Thanks a ton, Adesh! πŸ™‚

  11. Hearty congrats on the Indiblogger rank. i am way below you–only 82 (or something like that) πŸ™‚

    Ramesh’s poetry is lovely. He is a swell guy.

    And finally I get to see Mary Poppins in action πŸ™‚

    I must be one of those odd specimens of humanity which hates sugar! Can’t stand sweetness (in food)
    and chocolates too–very choosy. Hate kheeer and most Indian sweets πŸ™‚

    Cheers
    preeti

    PS, I am not fond of sweets either but I love sweet people!! And if you have been ranked 82, it is really good – as they said ranks are like cric scores, higher the better!! πŸ™‚ So hearty congratulations!! There is a video of Mary Poppins flying on her umbrella – thats the one I was referring to earlier. πŸ™‚

    Lovely post & congrats on the rank! Ramesh’s lines echoed my own sentiments too, although more because i hardly get time to come here and read 😦 All that food talk is making me hungry now πŸ˜€

    Thanks Shivya. Once you are settled in the workplace, you ll get a breather. πŸ™‚

  13. Yes–i noticed this only now–that ranks are like cricket scores..I was thinking the other way–that lower number is better..
    I just checked too..yes–mine is indeed 82.

    πŸ™‚ Lovely! Do hope you bat a 100 pretty quick.
