“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.” –Alberto Manguel

It Happens

It was a tuesday night when I,
found loneliness echoes all around;
it’s the only thing that never sleeps,
no matter if I sing lullaby, it rebound(s).

People around me are running for money and,
I feel like am standing still on a way to no where;
So am gonna learn how to walk my way right,
cause I am not meant to stand and stare.

Yea I feel butterflies every time I,
get closer to my dreams;
But I am not gonna bounce back,
cause I have to row down the streams.

Cause it happens, and I am not gonna regret,
for whatever I do;
I don’t care what people think of me,
I am not gonna change their point of view.

I may fall a hundred times but,
I will keep on moving forward by all my will;
cause there’s no option to back off,
better to fall and make up rather standing still.

I know its just a phase to pass on,
Life offers these kinda phases to make us learn;
Some grumble over it; some learn from it and move on,
I am also gonna make it when I’ll get my turn.

I know am living my salad days,
But its a common phase with those who try;
I may feel tired but I won’t stop,
I won’t give up, I won’t cry.
 
Cause it happens, and I am not gonna regret,
for whatever I do;
I don’t care what people think of me,
I am not gonna change their point of view.

New Life, Old Me

Hey.. Peeps.. :) Hmm.. so am on the new way, new life but old me. So it was holiday today and tomorrow is sunday, so another holiday *yay*. Now I feel what a holiday is. I desperately wanted a job and what not. Read my post The Day When Er. Added Before My Name. Click HereToday I (with my both room mates) went for shopping; again the thing I don't like but I had to. Holidays are boring when you have nothing to do, last saturday was half day and sunday was horrible. This saturday is good and sunday is gonna be the laundry day (when I am gonna wash all my clothes) aww.. Mom!! :(


So it was Pantaloons where we found something good, my first reaction on the things I picked was: searching for a tag mentioning 50% flat off up and down the columns, second reaction was checking the price tag (raising my eyebrows in wonder as a symbol of big NO) and third one was again searching for the tag saying some % off around my right and left. Gosh, things are so costly still I got few.


Um.. from past two days something is missing donno what, may be.. um.. I donno. Yea, mom-dad has given me a list of instructions: Don't use phone while crossing the road, cross road carefully, don't skip meals, wear glasses while working in front of screen in office, daily a glass of milk that too with 2 spoons of bournvita, oil hairs every saturday, i-pod not more than half an hour, sleep on time (no late night work, internet, novel, songs), no driving (if got the vehicle of any friend then speed should not exceed 40 km/hr) and what not. Mom-dad always treat me like a 6 year old. C'mon am a big girl.


And what's new, yea I was lost yesterday while returning from office. Oh, it was so stupid of me. Hmm.. Aa.. Aa.. Aakchhoo, excuse me! Got cough and cold. Grr..! Mom dad will be here in bangalore the day they will figure out I am having cough. Lol. And I wanna drive Blue Avenger so desperately. Yeah \m/ Okay gotta go now, its 11:35 p.m. now my room mate wants her laptop back. Will keep writing no matter what, yea composed 2 new poems in past two days of feeling emptiness. Will post them next. Signing out.. may God bless y'all.. :)

E Re Nata

Hey.. Peeps.. :) After so many days I am writing here, got many things to share. E Re Nata is a Latin phase which means: according to the present circumstances. Before that I must thank all my dear readers who kept on commenting, reading and asking me to get back to my posts. Thanks Fiona, Philo, and all my regular readers. How you people are doing? Will get back to your blog soon. 


Homesick: Yea I just relocated to Bangalore for job, its been just 11 days and am badly homesick. On this 23 January was my sister's b'day and for the first time I was not there with her, it was like oh.. life can bring you anything. She kept on telling me the menu for that day just to tease me, aww.. I miss north  Indian food, and mom made everything I used to complain about. Love you mom. *sob sob* :(


My First Job: Yea finally after few months of job search I got one. I love my job, though I know I am naive at it. I am so new to this world of job and all, but I have got a great environment, good people and a cool office. I feel lucky. *tee hee*


The Interview Day: When I reached for the interview in the company I work now, it was around 10:00 a.m. and I guess I was the first candidate for that day, I had to search for the address of the company also (as it had been just 5 days in Bangalore). I am so stupid, I was asking address from a beggar saying: "Bhaiya: you know this place (reading the address from my mobile notes)". People thereby started laughing, oh! it was so embarrassing. Finally I reached the venue after calling the contact person for venue (who is now my Team Leader). I was called in. Oh, I felt butterflies in my stomach, and felt like my heart is racing and attempting to leave my body. I was stammering too. Finally interview was over, I was like Oh God! I kept my fingers crossed, and I was tossed between yes and no for the selection. In interview they can test you for anything, but mind you have to clear the test for patience, yeah.. I waited so long for my offer letter after it. 

My First Joining: Yea, I  joined next day. I am surrounded with so many professionals and I feel like am a baby in my office. Everyone has done MBA, they hold pretty good experience and I am B.Tech dumbo. I am so naive, but somewhere I love this raw part of mine, yes! I love to be a learner rather being a master.


Words Of Wisdom: Yea a senior in my office asked me to keep asking things that quests in your mind. Clear your doubts, don't feel bad for having doubts. He said: "Doubt is a doubt, no matter if its dumbest or super talented". I got these words copied and pasted in the most active part of my mind. I like people who inspire me through these kinda things and make me feel comfortable, I mutely thank them with all my heart for letting me know what I never been through. Many people inspire me with just one appearance, while I was rushing towards my office in morning I was grumbling for not getting taxi, there I saw a sweeper with one hand and I was like: Oh Geez! How come people have so many guts, I was touched. 


Alone In City: Yeah this is the most saddest thing I am going through. I have no friends, no relatives, no one to talk about the things I have saved in my core. I use to talk to mom dad ever day but its not enough. I wish I could go home and have those cozy days. When I was in my home town and desperately waiting for job then I used to be upset and frustrated for having nothing to do, and now finally I have something to do so I feel like going back to those days when all I used to do was sleeping, eating and writing. I am a confused dumbo, the day I'll find out what I actually want; I'll be happy. 


My Honesty Is Not On Sale: Since Lord has been so kind to me and I feel like I am His favorite child I have promised myself never to sell my honesty for few bucks. "My honesty is priceless, I won't sell it for few bucks"- this was my facebook status a couple of days back. Lord has given me so much, if He takes something back then it would be a fair deal. I know my Lord will be standing next to me even if my own shadow leaves. So am gonna do all my work with honesty without any shortcuts, yea I may make mistakes, c'mon I am not perfect right. But I can assure I will learn from my mistakes and won't repeat them again. 


Dreaming Is On: I am working these days but all my dreams are still in my to do list, I think of all the stuffs I want, yea I am gonna make it. This city looks boring, I can't even sleep properly here. If I'll say same thing to others then they will die laughing. Bangalore is a great place, but I find it boring may be because am new to this place. I am gonna leave no stone unturned to make all that I want. 


Oops! This post has become ridiculously long, bear with my boring prose puhlease. Hmm.. currently listening to Taylor Swift's song: A Place In This World, yea this song suits to my present situation. Dear readers and followers: am sorry for not reading your blog posts, I don't have internet here, I either go to some cyber cafe or my room mate lends me her laptop for sometime. I am gonna get my laptop and internet by february. *yay* *grin* Signing out.. may God bless y'all.. :)

Forever Never Comes

Its 2 o'clock in the morning;
I am staring at the phone and rolling,
but you hasn't called and I;
sit by my window and sigh.

Now am staring at the moon;
hoping you'd call me soon,
but its getting so late now;
imma try to sleep somehow.

And my mind goes into the flashback;
when you said you'll be with me forever,
but forever never comes baby;
so don't say forever, don't say forever.

I am crawling into the loneliness;
I donno what's on your mind and I can't guess,
I hold your memories so strong;
and I think of you all day long.
 
I wish you'd sweep in like before;
and make a soft knock at my door,
and put your arms around my shoulder;
I've got my cardigan on 'cause its getting colder.

And my mind goes into the flashback;
when you said you'll be with me forever,
but forever never comes baby;
so don't say forever, don't say forever.

Am sliding your pictures on my phone;
am lying on my bed and I feel so alone,
I wish you'd wake me up in the morning;
and I'd pretend that I am sleeping.

Putting your thoughts aside isn't easy;
'cause they play in my mind like symphony,
Am tryna sleep with all your dreams;
keeping phone near and gazing moonbeams.

But my mind goes into the flashback;
when you said you'll be with me forever,
but forever never comes baby;
so don't say forever, don't say forever.

I Can

If I can dream then I can do it,
for those who say I can't;
get the hell off here; 'cause I can,
Yeah am gonna make all that I want.

So imma pull my socks up,
and gonna chase all my dreams;
yeah you have heard it right,
imma row down the streams.

There is no mountain I can't climb,
nothing that can break me down;
'cause I have hope that runs me through,
and its the only best thing I own.

Yeah I can do it, I can do it,
and I do a middle finger salute;
for those who discourage me,
'cause am headstrong and gonna get my route.

I can never be alone,
'cause my shadow walks with me;
so what do I fear for,
success is around, yeah I can see.

I'll keep walking on my way,
no matter what it* brings;
'cause those who have passion in their veins,
for them success waits & happiness sings.

I know I am just a few miles away,
from my destination, I wanna reach;
so am not gonna give up this soon,
c'mon I know it all, don't preach.

Yeah I can do it, I can do it,
and I do a middle finger salute;
for those who discourage me,
'cause am headstrong and gonna get my route.

Orpheus & Eurydice

Eurydice & Orpheus
Eurydice in her efforts to escape the satyr;
fell into a nest of vipers; suffered serpent bite,
Her body was discovered by Orpheus who played;
mournful songs when he saw her turning white.

All the Gods and Nymphs wept at his songs;
and they advised Orpheus to travel the underworld,
his music softened the hearts of Hades& Persephone;
who allowed Eurydice to return with him to upper world.

They kept a condition: he should walk in front of her;
and not look back until they both had reached the earth,
Orpheus accepted the condition and made his way;
Eurydice followed him, and continued to the girth.

In anxiety Orpheus turned back before they reached;
forgetting that both needed to be in the upper world,
Eurydice vanished and never came back;
Orpheus cried as he left her in the underworld.

At the end of his life, he disdained the worship of Gods;
A morning he went to the oracle to salute his God at dawn,
he was ripped to pieces by Maenads for not honoring Gods;
A woman killed him and his songs still played on and on.

Helicon sank underground when the women who killed Orpheus;
Orpheus Head on his Lyre
tried to wash her blood-stained hands in its waters,
After the death of Eurydice few threw sticks & stones at him;
music was so soulful, rocks & branches refused to be attackers.

His head and lyre, still singing mournful songs;
Lyre was carried to heaven by the Muses; placed among stars,
The Muses gathered up fragments of his body and buried them;
the Nightingale sang over his grave and ended love wars.

After river Sys flooded, his soul returned to the underworld;
where he was reunited at last with his beloved Eurydice,
but Eurydice was dead, and this grieved him so much that;
Orpheus committed suicide from his grief unable to find Eurydice.

What My Blog Stands For?

Hey.. Peeps.. :) I am going to tell what my blog stands for? I titled my blog as: Cart√© Blanche which means: freedom to do anything, it is a french word. Though it doesn't have an acute accent in 'e' of carte but I love acute accents so I replaced that 'e'  with "√©". Here is what its all about. :)

Creative lines
Arranged in poems and prose
Reaches from core to core
Twists and turns
Equipped with words

Bewildering thoughts
Lands in words here
Agitated feelings are
Noted in quotes
Comments approve my write ups
Healing my core and
Eloquence is appreciated

P.S. Inspired by Ben
