Dead end ahead?


Long ago, a bunch of young minds rowed a seed. They were very excited at the beginning. In the process of taking care so that the seed germinates; they exchanged ideas and shared their experiences of joy and sorrow. The seed transformed into a healthy sapling, thanks to the contributions from the young minds.

Over time, the young fellas moved apart. Nevertheless, they still cared for the sapling. There was always somebody to look after and thus the sapling grew into a small tree giving delight to the young bunch and also to strangers.

Inevitably, the young bunch grew up and were caught in the intricacies of life. Priorities changed and the small tree became a neglected object. Sometimes though, it was remembered especially on anniversaries and special days.

At present the bunch randomly visits the full-grown tree and takes a break in the cool shade of the tree. Many birds and stranger humans have become it's regular visitors.

The neglect though may kill the tree eventually. The tree is on it's way to a slow death unless it gets back the love and affection of it's human friends. Will it survive?

I don't know, I really don't know.

I remember a time when I would visit the tree every morning before work. But as time passes, I find myself dropping by maybe once a week or even bi-weekly!

I come to work early in the morning and go back late in the evening (just eating something before I go to sleep).

The present apathy (displayed by me and most of us) is disconcerting! I don't know how re-ignite that flame!

Love,

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl

When I escaped death !!!

12th June'13, 10.30 pm : I was driving back from a dinner party at dizzying speeds of around 80 KMPH inside a city. Then in my  psychedelic drive (yes I get high without alcohol), I saw a signal square few 100 meters ahead. I decreased the speed ( Signals are switched off after 10 pm in Nagpur so exercised caution ) to 60 KMPH (I am an engineer and I like my exact figures) but my car jumped off a speed breaker which I could not spot in the city darkness . I thought I controlled my car by the time I reached the signal square but  baaaaangggg !!! Few seconds later - I realized I was still alive!! saved by the airbag. Take a note everybody. The same day during daytime around 4.30 pm, I was feeling restless with a feeling of fear & anxiety inside me. A friend inquired and I replied back "I can feel something bad is going to happen with me today". That night I was hit by a speeding car straight (at 90 degrees) on the driver's door. Upon impact
