Blessings from Grandma :)

—– भजन —-
रोम रोम में तुम्ही हो हरजी
रोम रोम तुम्हारा है
मैं तो बस एक बुत हूँ हरजी
स्पंदन तुम्हारा है
सभी जीवों के तुम्ही हो सृष्टा
तुम्ही से जीवनधारा है
निर्मल को तुम्ही बल देते
तू सबका पालनहार है
ये जग है क्रीड़ा स्थल
तू खेल खिलावन्हारा
हारे जब भी हम जीवन से
दिया तुम्ही ने सहारा है
रोम रोम में तुम्ही हो हरजी
रोम रोम तुम्हारा है

A Sweet Milestone


  This wind you think of, thus blows by me
  I walk t’is dream burning fair – on asphalt.
  See her with delight, but soft and lone thee
  Cross’d path the night, amidst I listen alt,
  neath the wide volumes, turn my soul inside.
  Slips by the oversight, stumbled by the fall
  Passion that hides, richer said than words soft
  She maketh unseen color, My youth painted
  Walked by my unconscious, juvenile mind
  Count the hours: daylight, fair moon arise,
  Then I shalt see thee, with my impatient eyes
  Ti’s day shalt rise fair, my eyes intent thy.
  I have walked this asphalt: lone and forlorn
  I wouldst walk afar, A few more, endless miles…

P.S. Few Miles completed 3 years today!
I tried molding Few Mile’s journey and the Sentiments through my choicest words.

Thank you Sarav.

From the desk of Someone is Special,

It’s not just another post, it’s something special, and it is dedicated to Blogoversary of Few Miles by my dear friend Pranali, who writes at “Blank verses and Invisible lines”. It’s my pleasure to have her here on this special day, and I so thank her from the bottom of my heart for whatever she has blessed to Few Miles. Thank you!

I started this blog on 20 October 2009 on demand by my sweet friend and as a sweet dedication to my dream angel under the pen name, “Someone is Special” Today, I am so happy as my blog turns three. 3 years, 1095 days, 26280 hours of writing has changed my life a lot! Thank you all for the support and constant encouragement 🙂

Yesterday was Little One’s Second Blogoversary. As usual, we had combined Blogoversary Celebrations of My Friendship and Few Miles here on Little One’s Blog. Do join us! And, here is a video dedicated to our Blogoversary.

And to little one..

special celebrations
to mark a sweet journey
as it unites us with
a precious invisible bond

special memories
I share with Little One
and My Friendship,
cannot be said in words!

with words I wish,
the little flower
to cross a Few Miles,
with SmileS…!

A memorable online shopping experience madness!

“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it” – says Paulo Coelho. I agree!

It’s not every day you find someone whom you can befriend with. When you find someone precious, you cannot miss him or her in your life. He or she may be younger or older to you, fair or dark to your eyes, near or far from where you live, or whatever, still they are precious as your friend or sometime you cannot tag a label, and you so wanted to gift him or her as a gift, for what and who they are to you. I have a few close to my heart but she is a special one, actually a little one, with whom I share a special bond – a precious invisible bond to bind us! She is such a sweetie!

In early days, people used dove to send very small gifts and as a messenger; in 80’s, people used telegram for sending short messages, and posts for sending small gifts, before a decade back people bought gifts for their precious ones and couriered them. A few years back, people found a solution for their problems and tagged it as ‘Online Shopping’ – The one stop solution for all your needs! They named the solution as ‘eBay’, ‘FlipKart’, ‘snapdeal’, ‘Qvendo’, ‘Pringoo’, etc. I love the second and third always, as I’d my best experience with them. If online shopping was not there, I’d not have been able to gift ma sweet one. In fact, that’s my first real online shopping experience after Pringoo, which my friend did on behalf of me – a sweet memorable experience 🙂

This incident happened thirteen months ago, and all thanks to Mohinee of Gurukripa for hosting Grand Patriotic Poetry contest and inviting to judge the contest! It was a fantastic experience to judge the contest with poetic greats. Glad and blessed to judge an entry by Aadarneeya Ms. Swarna Kaurji and it is none other than the Grandmother of my little one! As I promised during the initial announcement, I wanted to send gifts, but how can I send gifts to Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh? I wondered!

That’s when my roommate introduced FlipKart. It sounded like Greek and Spanish to me! ‘What? How? Are you sure?’ Puzzled I was, and the solution was simple. In fact, I was amazed by the collection they had under each category and variety. I learnt about the best deals, offers and what not – Online shipping itself is the best gift invented by a human for humans!

Quickly, I browsed the catalogue of books and selected books of my choice keeping Grandma in mind. I added the books, “Gitanjali – Rabindranath Tagore”, “My Experiments With Truth : An Autobiography – Mahatma Gandhi”, “Anna Hazare – The Fakir Who Moved A Country” and “Love On The Rocks – Ismita Tondon Dhanker” to my cart and checked out for payment. I found two options for payment and I’d to choose Online Payment 🙁 My hands shivered to make an online payment and I had no other choice 🙁 so I did make an online payment after confirming for the umpteenth time about the integrity of the site with my friend. Still I was not convinced, so I took a screen shot of the same for my reference and emailed little one too 🙂

I was so worried about the quality of the products, though it was books and it has to be delivered to Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh. A week had gone by peeping into my laptop for an email from Little One, but finally, it took ten days to reach Gorakhpur. I was the happiest man in the world to know that the books reached them in very good condition and Little One, her Parents and Grandma were happy, a lot in fact.

But what made the experience so memorable was the reaction of Little One and Grandma. The below text was taken from Little One’s Blog post.

I’m sharing here so late almost after 3 months about my so special gift I received from my Special One, Saravana! There was a Grand Patriotic Poetry Contest organised by dear friend Mohinee. In this contest, I submitted my Sweet Granny’s poem हित अपने देश का. And when the result declared my granny and me started dancing with excitement because her poem was selected the best by Someone is Special! Then I lived that moment brought happiness to her. I saw something that I’d never seen before… tears in her eyes! But they were of joy, excitement and satisfaction. She has been writing poetry from so many years but they were compiled in a diary with no reader until I publish them on my blog. Now she has great talented readers here so she gets so eager to make me post them as soon as possible. All of yours appreciating and encouraging words have made her to pen down poetry again she skipped years before! I want to give a big thanks to Mohinee for organizing such a wonderful contest and to my Special One, Saravana for honoring my granny with such wonderful gifts.

This might not have had happened if Online Shopping was not there. All thanks to Online Shopping for helping to strengthen a pure unfading sweet relationship in the world with my Little One, which cannot be named! I can cherish this memory forever!

I thank BlogAdda for organizing the contest Moment of Madness, for selecting my post as one of the winning post, for offering a gift voucher to shop from Pringoo, which ultimately was my first online shopping (seeing) experience and also for organizing this contest, which has created an opportunity to share a sweet incident happened in my life. I’m wishing hoping to do a memorable online shopping from snapdeal.com as well 🙂

This post is a part of the contest at BlogAdda.com in association with Snapdeal.com
