Oh sweet love, thou winter's blossom white..
You keep me awake through the long winter's night
You are not a flame, as much as a glow
Though Spring is now long past, you continue to grow..

Dedicated to Acidcat

As long as people are falling in love, all is right with the world.. Nothing else on Earth can give you that special glow, that feeling of warmth, the reassurance that someone here on Earth will always think about you, care for you, look out for you and miss you when you are away. And certainly only another person who is in love can truly understand what you feel. In my case, I haven't found many who did. I've had a lot of people feel jealous of me of course and if I were the sort of person who revels in that, I would be happy. But I only want people to feel happy for me and wish good things for us.
Today, I'm very happy for you, my friend. I wish joy, more love, laughter and happiness to all the people in the world who are in love.. :)

काल करे सो आज कर
आज करे सो अब
पल में परलय होवेगी
बहुरि करेगा कब

I was supposed to give a seminar on the major histocompatibilty complex today but due to n number of reasons, it has now been postponed by more than a week.. Feel so irritated to have work undone.. But hope it goes really well when I do it.. I have to start studying for the sessional exam now which is less than a week away..

My heart has long been familiar
But my eyes do long to see
Beloved, I know you are out there
When will you come find me?

And he did come find me, my beloved, my soulmate. When we began liking each other, we had been classmates for almost a year and yet, hadn't noticed each other until then (well, it was a huge class of a 112) Strange that we began to mutually get attracted to each other at the exact same time. Fate? Destiny? Whatever it was, it was however a clear case of opposites attracting. He is the quiet, shy, gentle type whereas I am loud, bold and aggressive. But somehow we connected to each other at some levels. We think alike a lot of times and have similar opinions of people and issues. We differ when it comes to the way we execute our ideas though and if we are working together, that does tend to cause a few tiffs. But hey, wouldn't life get a little too dull without a few bumps on the way?
My beloved has been away for a few days and won't be with me on my b'day. I miss him.. disagreements and all..

Away from my beloved..
So far away is he.. I am
Like a river that sprang forth from the mountains
But got lost in the desert,
Never to join the Sea..

Music divine,
breathing life into my soul..
soothing me,
making me whole..

I attribute being of a musical bent of mind to my parents. Both of them have pretty good voices. My dad has always had a huge collection of record plates or audio cassettes or cds (depending on the era) of music of various genres. And mom loves to belt out a song at any time of the day in her beautiful, strong voice. I believe that if she'd trained her voice she might even have been a professional.
As for me, I love music; I live music. I dance to the fast numbers, become thoughtful with the pensive ones, my heart soars with the happy songs and drops with the sad ones. But above all, music is a solace. It is like slipping on a comfy pair of shoes, like coming home. When I'm bruised, physically and mentally, music is the balm..

What I am inside, I shall never be outside;
The inside is seen by none,
the outside is seen by all.

I am proud to be an Arien and given another life, another chance, I would most definitely choose to be one again. I sincerely believe that Ariens are among the few genuinely happy-go-lucky people in the world. They are always right there, up front, on top of things, in the middle of the melee, leading the march.. They are loud, opinionated, loud, aggressive, enthusiastic, loud, big on ideas but a little short on the follow through and did i mention loud? All in all, love them or hate them, you certainly cannot ignore them, simply because they refuse to be ignored.
I owe the awareness of my Arienness to the one person I truly admire, save my mom.. And that's Linda Goodman. It is only because of her that I know who I am and why I am the way I am. I wish I knew how she gained that amazing insight into people and their characters. Long live Linda Goodman in the minds and hearts of her fans..

When the body is too weak to care,
The spirit shall soldier on..
When the mind is too feeble to dare,
The spirit shall soldier on..
When the heart is in despair,
The spirit shall soldier on..

Being an Arien, my motto in life is, Tomorrow is another day.. Which simply means that no matter how bad the world looks today, it is sure to look better tomorrow. Don't get me wrong and believe that I look at the world with rose colored glasses.. In fact, I am the pessimist's worst nightmare but with me, the doomsday mood never lasts.. One good cry and I'll be up on my feet again.
This is the reason why, even though I had a terrible row with two of my classmates today (I apologized though.. Ariens are always the first ones to..) and even though my Sunday is going to be as bad or even worse than the last four, (four hectic weeks plus no fun Sundays are enough to drive even me over the bend) I'm still pretty ok..
