moments of realiZATION


The moment makes the difference….
The moment of absence makes the difference significant….
The moment of absence dawns down the realization the value and worth of it all…..

It is very upsetting to know that a friend is hospitalized when one expects him to be working heartily at office or remote sensing from home…or when one expects him online any minute once in office.

Chez said...
Poor Bhanu is in the hospital after a bad accident last week. He's doing fine now and out of danger. Keep him in your prayers!”

This is yet another instance that brought to my notice that relationships are special. One never realizes the depth in it until the time points it out to you.

The vacation home was a welcome change …a relief from the mundanity of the hectic work life I lead in the Hi-tech city. But surprisingly this time round whenever I got a chance from…that is the times when I wasn’t eating my dad’s head, bullying my bro, chatting to the dozen to amma and relishing her food , visiting cousins, and all that routine work one does when one goes home I was pulled towards blogspot.

Blogs and blogmates… Reading the ramblings, out pouring, the eruptions from the minds of all you guys day in and day out, has made me addicted to it. I come to realize that addiction is not such a nice habit to boast and nurture still blogs aren’t opium or heroine. They are writings and tell me a person who hasn’t been influenced or moved by the pen which is indeed mightier than the sword. It is no surprise that the first browser I open every morning is to wonder around the blogging community.

Certain things never register unless it is said bluntly. The Sharpe edge of the blunt words revives us from the rosy, green, blue, purple and yellow lives we lead nowadays. This is my way says Reality…….it strikes at the most unprecedented time. The shock treatment it is and it will be always.

I have had very good experience in the chat rooms. No more words needed to elucidate this fact because my 3 best friends hail from that world and one of them happens to be so close that we will never part for ever unless parents interfere……
It took those working University days chat less days to make me and all of us aware that yes we miss each other.
I took me a year to realize that I indeed had fallen in love with one of them.

It takes the hostel food to make the home food look like heaven.
It takes sorrow to make happiness sweeter…
It takes an accident to realize that Bhanu is a close friend……

  1. We tend to realise the importance of something only after we lose it or if we miss it !!

    Very true indeed!

  3. Ash,
    this was a very warm and beautifully written post. I guess you were a bit emotional as you typed in those words on your keyboard. Your observations are spontaneous and fresh---i guess that's the reason so many people visit your blog and post comments.
    Cheer up. Bhanu will be fine. Take care

  4. Very well written, touching topics where they should be!!

    As you said.. most of the time we do not sense the importance of a friend around us.. unless something happens.. in your case, unfortunatly.. it was an accident.. while other time they might move out!...

  9. Im sorry to hear abt ur friend's accident...I pray that Bhanu gets better soon...


    **...that relationships are special. One never realizes the depth in it until the time points it out to you.

    thats soooo true! We take r'ships for granted cos we think ppl r gonna be ard always healthy and fit. When someone is ill or lost, then we realise how important that person is to us. Sadly that's the real state of life...


    **It takes the hostel food to make the home food look like heaven.
    It takes sorrow to make happiness sweeter…
    It takes an accident to realize that Bhanu is a close friend……


    so beautifully put Ash!

    sorry bout ur firend.. but u r very much right in concluding that "The moment of absence makes the difference significant" as me too is is missing closest of my friend..... she is out of country

  11. true...its things which we always take as granted that turn out to be the most valuable to us....

  12. One never realizes the depth in it until the time points it out to you.
    This is so true ASH. We all take things for granted when everything is moving on fine...but then, at that critical moment, we come to know who truly are our so-called friends.

    Pray that BHANU recovers soon and things go fine for him...as well as you. Just relax Ash!!

    It takes the hostel food to make the home food look like heaven.

    That was kewl :)

  13. We tend to take things for granted, thinking its always gonna be there. But its a rude shock when you realise life is not like that. Its moments like these that make you realise how wonderful some people are and what they mean to you. :)

  29. Very beautifully written. 'Get well soon' to your friend.

    And these lines surely summed it up-
    "It takes the hostel food to make the home food look like heaven.
    It takes sorrow to make happiness sweeter…"

  32. Well written, girl!

    Thank you for visiting my blog. I am frequently updating it, so hope to see you there again.

    You will find my yahoo msngr id in my blog. Add me if you wish.

  33. Ash,
    How are ya and how's work? Hope you're back to your working mood and enjoying the click-clack of mouse and keyboard?

    I have three things for you to consider. First, i and chez had a small 'discussion' on his blog. If possible, visit his place--it's kinda fun.

    Second---the template of your blog sucks! Really. The earlier one which you had for quite some time was nice. This is my opinion.

    Third---i'd written a post on blogchaat, recently and requested my blogfriends to visit that place and provide links. I think it's a great place to visit, and learn something from. Please visit it and if possible, place a link on your blog. I'm gonna write an article for that blog shortly, and it'll be fun if you too think in those terms. It could be valuable writing practice--unlike our blogs where we blabber our guts off. I feel we need to support a good effort. Please go through the articles published there, and do provide a link from your blog to blogchaat.

    Take care and good luck. Yeah, say my hi to your beau!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. hey Vishwa .........

    i have been reading the articles on blogchaat .......but forgot to add it to my links........

    and about the template i have been feeling the same too .........restricting me from writing long ones and reallly loved my loonie toons ....missing it badly ...........

    saw the long comments but read only the last one on the block by chez .......the shortest will go back over the weekend ....

  35. Hey, how are you doing? This entry was especially touching, I'm glad you've had such a realization before it is too late. I had one such after the fact I could do anything about it and have been dreading it for the past two years with huge amounts of regret.

    Anyways, I tried to explain, I don't know if you read the entry I explained it, but I haven't commented on your blog mainly because I didn't have the chance to read it. Whenever I tried to open you rblog at home, the window crashed on me. And I could've read it at school, but well it's school and I have the class. So yeah, thanks for still reading my blog.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Your absence makes the house go quiet(literally).

    Thats when we (dad,mom,the parrots and me) think its not the same without you.

    so it doesn't need an accident to realize relationships. Our reaction to the presence and absence of a person would be ample proof.

    One more thing. Compu is healed completely and working as new.
