An ending and a new beginning

Hey guys!
I hope you do remember me!
Well, in any case, I haven't forgotten :D
Its been a rollercoaster of sorts here. Recently relocated to Bangalore. . . . .

After a long time, and a lot of failed attempts to return to blogging, I have finally made one more attempt.
However,
There are changes that one desires in life. So do I.
I have switched over to Wordpress now. That goes on to mean that this post is the last one at http://SilentRecollections.blogspot.com.

Not the end of the road though!

My blog now continues in wordpress,
at SilentRecollections.

Hope you guys continue to read me once my mainstream posts begin this weekend!

The comment that brought me back!

As many of you know, I’ve been off the blogging world for a loooong time. It’s been too long, really. Whom can I blame, but myself? I’ve kept myself too busy, even though I did have some time to kill every now and then. . .
                I blog this drivel just because of a tiny game of chance life played with me today. . . Wanna know exactly what it was?
I was, (as usual) surfing the net aimlessly, when I happened to click on the blogger link in a page by mistake. Usually, the sight of my blog centre with 0 comments to moderate puts me off but today was different . . .
                There was a comment on my last post! That really felt Intriguing, so I decided to look it up. . .
Here’s the comment:

"Even if u post after like a decade, v ll b der 2 read u! :) "

I know not what I did to deserve such an ardent reader, and just for that one person, I believe, I ought to return to posting. . .
Don’t you guys agree?
Thanks a helluvia lot, Pooja!!
Yu helped me revive myself, and in extension, my blog!
Posts will keep coming regularly now.

Of Delays and more Delays

Here I am again, after a long long break. . . . .
I have always asked myself the same old question many a time. . . .
"Why am i not back on blogger?"
The answer presents itself to me from an ever-weary corner of my mind . . . .
"You dont have time to do all that now . . ."
what makes me so very busy that i cant even post a single paragraph, a verse or a line ?


Is it the time consuming studies? Is it the ever-busy schedule i've drawn for myself?
or is it just that i've drifted away from the idea of blogging?
The answer, it seems, is a complex one.
Never before have i felt so much of an urge to begin writing again, as if an age old ghost beckons me towards my pc, persuading me to continue typing, from word to word, letter to letter, key to key . . . .
Maybe i'll be back here again, in an hour, a month or a day . .  hoping to hear from ppl i've lost touch with, ppl who i still hope like to read me.

Yours, Lovingly
Sid!

WHo was he?


In search of love, one pleasant day,
He set forth there, where true love lay;
He’d sought its silky charming spray,
With restless calm, and fretless sway

His walk was neither fast nor slow,
With a longing sight and a warming glow;
In his every step – persistence showed,
The wisdom etched on his handsome brow


They followed him in passion’d ways;

 Invigor’d by his awesome grace,
Inspired by his restless chase;
Of true compassion, through the haze
The tinkle of his voce once heard,
 True passion and true love it stirred;
Like the dawning song of a Robin bird,
Like the stamp of love on a new heart – Seared!


He’s now long gone, but still well known,
For the path of love that he’d once shown;
That path is still unchanged: unprone,
Like a beam of light, in darkness, thrown . . . . . .


WEll, Any suggestions? who was he?

Where Is The Alarm Bell??

Where is the Alarm Bell?

Every day, We,
“Wake up” like Dead bodies
“Do” our daily duties,
“Stare” at heavenly beauties,
“Glare” at responsibilities!
“Feint” sorrow at others' worries,
“Moan” at our God Damn Deities!
“Sign up” with the devil’s treaties,
“Scoff” at aspiring newbies!

Every day, we Do Not,
“Smile” at stranger’s Faces,
“Cry” with genuine patience,
“Try” out new inclinations
“Resist” age old temptations,
“Pray” for liberation,
“Reach” new destinations,
“Praise” genuine deliberations,
“Weigh” ramifications,
“Teach” interesting notions

WHY??
