Wonderings

Image
I wonder if the trees whisper , When their leaves rustle and swish in the breeze.
I wonder if the moon yearns, To come out in the day sometimes.
I wonder if the gushing water in the river, Rushes forth to reach somewhere.
I wonder if the tiny grass cry out in joy, When Dawn sprinkles dewdrops everywhere.
Oh, so many miracles, I cannot help but wonder.
How it would be if I could hear them chatter!

Must Watch Movies- 2017

I've been on a movie marathon since the past few weeks what with such fabulous movies releasing in theatres. Also, cleared my backlog of movies I'd meant to watch in 2016 too. I've made a list of the Top 5 movies which I absolutely loved. Thought, I would write about them so that, those of you who haven't watched them, put it on your "To Watch" list. 😊 Hidden Figures- It won the Oscars not for nothing! My most favorite movie so far and hence at the top of my list.

They value their families, colleagues and society and balance each one so well. Standing up for what is right and giving in so…

Wilting yet beautiful,
Plucked yet fragrant.
Serene.

Some age like that,
Growing more beautiful by the day
Glowing with contentment
From the golden years. 

Repair it. Fixit.

When was the last time you went for a check up? Doesn't your body give you signs that you need something? And then one fine day, give way unless you take good care of it. It's the same case with the house you stay in. Any building needs constant maintenance what with the heavy rains, the constant direct sun and wear & tear. Externally, a building may look okay but internally be damaged. Old, dilapidated buildings are seen at every nook & corner in Mumbai. You'll find one on every street and there's always the horrifying news of a building collapsing. But even then, the repairs are always postponed. Building failures can be divided off into two broad groups of structural failures & application failures. Most of the building collapses are due to low quality of material used, inadequately trained manpower and inadequate supervision in constructing the multi storey structures so commonly seen. Structural audit is a must for every building. Most societies consid…
