Photographs have these uncanny abilities to bring out a rush of grief into your eyes and a sting of memory!

Ah! How you wish certain things had never happened in life!

But then.. you learn! :)

Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906)

COME to the pane, draw the curtain apart,
There she is passing, the girl of my heart;
See where she walks like a queen in the street,
Weather-defying, calm, placid and sweet.
Tripping along with impetuous grace,
Joy of her life beaming out of her face,
Tresses all truant-like, curl upon curl,
Wind-blown and rosy, my little March girl.

Hint of the violet's delicate bloom,
Hint of the rose's pervading perfume!
How can the wind help from kissing her face,—
Wrapping her round in his stormy embrace?
But still serenely she laughs at his rout,
She is the victor who wins in the bout.
So may life's passions about her soul swirl,
Leaving it placid,—my little March girl.

What self-possession looks out of her eyes!
What are the wild winds, and what are the skies,
Frowning and glooming when, brimming with life,
Cometh the little maid ripe for the strife?
Ah! Wind, and bah! Wind, what might have you now?
What can you do with that innocent brow?
Blow, Wind, and grow, Wind, and eddy and swirl,
But bring to me, Wind,— my little March girl.

( The above poem appeared in Dunbar's 1899 Lyrics of the Hearthside. It was discovered in Poem of the Week)

Chennai's blogsville is cooking up it's own delightful agenda!
An innovative coming-together of sorts is being organised for 3 November 2007 at 3:11 pm! Wherever you are, whatever you're doing, put the pause for a moment and click what's in front of you! Chennai-in its myriad moods and faces and resplendent colours will be captured through these pictures.
It is not a charity move! Neither it is a contest! It's just a thought,a moment to share with fellow residents of the city where you breathe,sleep,cry,laugh,jump!

One moment, we shall all be united in cause and Chennai shall fondly be remembered and transfixed in the camera screens!

For more information, read here.


you NEVER get what you want in life.
and you ALWAYS run away from what you get in life.

life needs to be more interesting than that to sustain me!
