FOTD – Flower of the day!
And well, it was love, or to be specific, friendship at first sight. So, the next day I visited the shop again, and the result was this –
Since then, I have bored these guys with my chatter while they silently listened on, and purified the air and emotions around me. These are my succulent plants and my best friends – meet Ruby, Adah, Shea, Lisa, Jane, Lara and Zia.

What could be more evanescent than a funny click of a toddler? The expression, or the pose, is there for a minute, and if you don’t get your cam up and clicking within a nanosecond, the moment just vanishes.
Here is one such evanescent picture of my toddler bro where he looks just like a tea picker!
Pictures of “some” gardens from the garden city of India – Bangalore !

“This would probably be the last time I might see him”, she thought on her Graduation day.
She turned to tell Vihaan that she loves him, only to find him down on one knee.
Avantika reminisced while looking at the graduation photograph which hung mournfully on the wall, as it stood testimony to the divorce papers on the table below.

The hour before the dawn is the darkest,
But, how long does it last?
It shouldn’t last so long that the sleepy eyes,
get accustomed to the pitch black,
And when light does seep in,
through the crevices of the eyelids,
It is too late.
Darkness is a cruel witch,
Sniggers, while entwining with catastrophe,
Yet it engulfs with a soothing calm,
Not the silence before the tempest,
But the peace after –
The quiet that stands strong,
After the devastation.

The greatest lie in the world a guy would say to his girlfriend/wife is :
“You are not looking fat/old” depending on the question thrown towards him.
You may ask me why I categorically say that this is the greatest lie. Well, being a CA student I cannot pose a theory without substantiating it with reasons.
Reason #1 – He doesn’t know how to judge whether a woman is fat/old.
Reason #2 – He is not bothered by any of it. He loves her at all times. So he says this without even judging her.
Reason #3 – She does look fat/old. But. If he answers in the affirmative, we all know about the mayhem that would ensue.
Earlier, I had posted about conundrum. The question “Am I looking fat/old?” would top the list of conundrums, if there was one! What is the correct answer to this question which hits every committed/married guy on the face, readers? Because, even if the guy gives the answer which I have proclaimed to be the greatest lie in the world – SHE WILL NOT BELIEVE HIM ANYWAY!!!
