I thank all the sweethearts for selecting my post as one of the winning entries. Thank you for your prayers, votes and wishes.. Happy Man.. Thank you thank you thank you…

I was sitting outside the scan room waiting for my dad to come out. Life was dark and black from last Friday (17-06-2011). But then… how colourful it was before? I silently closed my eyes and revisited my sweet colourful memories.

My sweet family is richer than richest in love and affection but yet to grow in monetary values. It consists of five flowers, first my dad ‘Mr. Murugan’ working as a painter, my mom ‘Mrs. Meenakshi Murugan’ a perfect homemaker, my elder sister ‘Priya Arun’ she is married and a perfect homemaker and my younger brother, ‘Raja’ pursuing his B.Sc in Nautical Science. Although I am in Bangalore, my bro in his college hostel, my sister in her home and my parents in our home, whenever we meet it was fun, smiles, happiness and colourful altogether. This is my sweet home which had seen all our smiles and colourful moments of life right from the moment I was born until last Friday.

It is a big list and I love to mention a few…

Da-daddy ‘I learnt A,B,C’ showing my slate to my sweet dad and mom

Daddy, ‘First Rank’ I shouted showing my U.K.G report card to my dad and mom

‘2 x 5 =’ 10, I smiled happily after answering my dad correctly

‘Thanks dad for the pencil’… I was much excited about writing with ‘Natraj Pencil’

‘Daddy, my sweet bro’… I exclaimed touching my mom’s stomach, they said not to dream about bro as God only knows the gender of the child but I strongly said the baby will be a boy baby and as I believed, my sweet bro touched this earth on March 31, 1993.

‘aww, my bro and my sis are the sweetest person in this world’ I exclaimed now and then

‘The luckiest person in the world is …’ I happily shouted after completing my fifth Standard Annual Exams.

‘ahooooooooooo… today my Sweet sister scored 481 in X Standard Public Examination (School First, State 10th)… Wow’ I said proudly to this world
‘It is my turn to register my name and I did so by scoring centum in Mathematics X Standard Public Exams’

‘I got a merit seat in one of the top university of India’… I was happy man then.

‘Aww… I got selected in Campus Interview’, it was proud moment for my dad and Mom… Awww…

‘Wow, today I received my first salary. This Sms is an acknowledgement… Wow…” I exclaimed…

‘Bro, you did it’ I congratulated him when he managed to get seat for Nautical Science (his dream).

‘Wow, my niece scored 492/500, State Fifth (X Standard Public Examination)

And it goes on…

Uncountable sweet colourful moments in my life and SmileS, as I say I was enjoying every single moment in my sweet of journey called ‘Life’ and its reflections is my blog, ‘Few Miles’, a colourful love blog. It has seen many colourful moments right from the moment I first started this blog and here are few of those..

I was happily dreaming about my life, and they planned to get me married, Life was colourful but when my dad went down to earth with abdominal pain. My heart stopped for a minute, and he was taken to the hospital where he was first given treatment to control the unbearable pain. Later doctors doubted about the possibility of any tumour in stomach, so we were advised for endoscopy, which revealed the truth, and on different scans and tests, they confirmed that my sweet father who brought me up in life with all pain is suffering from carcinoma in large intestine.

I never thought this would happen to my dad but… God made it happen… I am so disturbed from the moment I heard this. I’m void, my life is dark and black, and with pain all around me, I could just shed blood from my pen.

and here is a poem for my dad (I penned this on Father’s Day)…


O my Dear Dad,
I remember the time; you first embraced me and said,
“You are my gift and nothing can equal my happiness”

O my Dear Dad,
I remember the time when I first uttered “apppaaa” ~ “daddy) and I know
“You love me a lot and nothing can equal your love”

O my Dear Dad,
I remember the time when I held your hands and tried to walk, you said
“You are my world and one day you will be the king of this world”

O my Dear Dad,
I remember the time when I first went to school crying, you said
“You are my son and you will make me proud one day”

O my Dear Dad,
I remember the time; you taught me cycling and said,
“You are the best, and you will succeed in all your endeavours”

O my Dear Dad,
I remember the time when I scored centum in State Examination, and you said
“You made me proud my son”

O my Dear Dad,
I remember the time; you advised me to take good care of myself and learn English in college
“You are the king and you will prove you to this world”

O my Dear Dad,
I remember the time when I first left home to a new world, and you said
“You are a neonate, take care of yourself”

O my Dear Dad,
Today I’m here, tears are my friend, God is my only hope and I wish
“You should be alright soon”

Before taking leave, I request all of you to pray for my DAD, and wish him good wishes as Monday, he is gonna to be operated (Carcinoma ~ SUPRA MAJOR OPERATION BY WHIPPLE PROCEDURE). I wish and pray to God that he should be fine after this operation. So please pray for my DAD to get well soon.

So much has been written about her over the years. People have exhausted the vocabulary in describing her rejuvenating beauty. But, she still throws up newness and mystery in all her forms that captivate our imagination. Nature’ bores no one indeed. I sought her refuge that evening for some reason that I don’t exactly remember. All I did was just stand on the green grass under the shady breeze of a tree as simple as that. But my eyes were feasted with a whole lot of things that remain everlastingly fresh in my memory. It’s true that she treats with more than you seek. The treat was not just visual. The fragrance of the flower that danced to the tunes of the breeze, the sounds of chirping birds, screaming kids, the soft touch of the grass and the amidst all these, the silence that my heart felt all these made me realize that there is something more, much more to life than my computer and my mobile phone. I was experiencing that new sense of happiness with a blend of mystery and delight much like a seven year old getting his first video game set. It was satisfying yet luring for more with every passing moment. I was thinking how nice it would be to enjoy this more often and closed my eyes and thanked God for the opportunity! And I slipped into my dreamland with my life.


‘Hey, I told you it was all fine.’
He then knew it was a clear sign
That they were in the same sweet boat,
And some wave will keep ‘em afloat !

Their walk so melodious and richly flowing;
Smiles and joy came along glowing.
They picked every leaf and lonely flower
That lay on the way, hour after hour !

He heard her heart and mind so clear
Not once did they need words to near
Grand attire on cute young feet
A treat to watch a print so neat !

Time may pass and they may grow
Change has lots of secrets to throw
Their shoes may not fit them that time
And their talk may not sound sublime !

But deep in their hearts firmly set
Was a feeling of comfort they always met;
Every friend knows that this is love
One that does not need any dove !


And there was a loud noise that closed the fantasy doors of that world and opened my eyes to annoyingly greet the bright sun whose punctuality. I’ve always envied. Around me were four thick walls and that same room of mine that had witnessed nearly every ‘face’ of mine! Oh! Only a dream hmmm! Well, yes. Where’s all that greenery and poetic dreams today in reality! It’s machines all the way. Even that ‘loud noise’ was from my mobile’s alarm. Imagine if we all were to live without our mobile phones and computers. Most of us can’t even think of it! Let’s give space to nature and poems in our dreams at least!
