Ailaaa! आप तो यहाँ सचमुच आ गए!

A lot

"I love you."
I had uttered these words years ago.
To someone I loved a lot.
A lot.

He loved me too. Apparently.

For many years. Apparently.
Until of course someone replaced me.
And it hurt a lot.
A lot.

First love, to be precise.

One never forgets it.
I bet you haven't either.
It haunts you a lot.
A lot.

Moments become Memories.

Dreams become Nightmares.
Promises become Nostalgia.
Destiny ridicules you a lot.
A lot.

And you lose faith.

In everything. Precisely.
"I can never fall in love again."
You reiterate this to yourself a lot.
A lot.

But then life moved on and so did I.

I met someone. And he changed my life.
I was in love again. This time, even more. Lot more.
Lot most.

Life blossomed. And there is no looking back ever since.

He made me be me. And I have not stopped smiling ever since.
"I love you." He said to me. "I love you, so, so much." I said to him. 
We haven't stopped saying that ever since. 
It just keeps growing, every single day, at every moment; a lot.
A lot. And lots.

Untamed Earthlings

I have been fortunate to have spotted some of the amazing wildlife across India (Ranthambore, Jammu & Kashmir and Bombay) and a few from Sri Lanka.

These beautiful untamed earthlings remind us to stay grounded, respect the other species and also the fact that life is more beautiful beyond the concrete jungle, into the wild.
