Masquerade of Love!

Roses, candle light dinner, gifts and a romantic ambiance. A perfect picture to upload on social media. She was lost in the daze of the likes, comments and envy the valentine special picture would evoke from her online friends. She only hoped that the people would remain oblivious of the charade they were putting up to maintain their social status and fail to see the widening rift in their relationship.

Day 27 – Love for Guru!

The penultimate day of the Valentines Special series. Bringing this together truly gives me a sense of joy and accomplishment. Thanks to all my friends for being with me on this beautiful journey ❤ !


In Sanskrit the term guru connotes someone who is a guide, or a master in a certain field of knowledge. Like a guidepost, he inspires his disciples, dispels darkness of ignorance, guiding them towards light. He helps discover the immense potentiality within themselves. Today, it is increasingly referred as seers who carry the message of truth for humanity.

A beacon of light

insight to divine wisdom

nourishes the soul

Day 23 – Sibling love!

With a few more days of this beautiful valentine special series to go, I do hope you continue to shower your love and support  till the very end.


One of the most enduring relationship is the one shared by siblings.  During childhood there is a love hate kinship between them. There is a fair amount of arguments, at times they drive you insane, play pranks on one another yet with time, this bond transforms into one of sharing, caring, love and respect for each other.

Unbreakable bond

secured with love, laughter, pranks

a timeless treasure!

Some interesting quotes I came across on siblings:

“Children of the same parents, each of whom is normal, until they get together!”

“The only enemy that you can’t live without”. ( Was reminded of Tom and Jerry, who fight like crazy, yet can’t live without each other) 😉

Take a nostalgic trip back in time with your siblings and share anecdotes , pranks and incidents that you recall today, with lot of fondness.

Day 15 – Unrequited Love!

Continuing the Valentine Special series, each day of the month, I will highlight a different facet of love in the form of a haiku. Hope you stay with me throughout this month long journey with all your support and love.


One sided love is quite self-explanatory. It  is love that is not reciprocated or understood by the other. The object of the unrequited love is often an acquaintance, colleague or a friend. The admirer is often unable to express his/her feelings of love to the other. This inability to express often leads to negative emotions.

In vain, my heart beats

emotions muted within

melancholic void!

Day 14 – Valentine Love!

Continuing with the Valentine special series, the special day is finally here! Happy Valentines day to all the bloggers.


14th February! A day specially marked as day for romance. Though largely a western concept, today lovers from across the globe celebrate this day with the love of their life.  They shower each other with gifts, chocolates, flowers and cards. Today many restaurants and clubs organize romantic settings to make the lovers feel special.

Love is in the air

celebrations paramount

happy valentines!


Day 1 – Love is in the air!


Was just listening to Elvis Presley croon “I can’t help falling in love with you….” aha his magical voice made me fall in love with his voice all over again. I guess, that’s the magic of love. So this gave me an idea to make this February special with love as the flavor of the month.

The shortest, yet the sweetest month of February is most celebrated not only for Valentines day, but also associated with all things beautiful. Be it relationships, gifts, gestures, flowers , chocolates and love in general in its various avatars. So let’s raise a toast to the month, commemorating the spirit of love and togetherness.

“Life without love is like a tree without blossom or fruit” Khalil Gibran!

To infuse the fragrance of this love across the blogosphere, I plan to bring out the myriad layers of love in all its hues. Be it the romantic, maternal or family love, it is an emotion which all want to experience and enjoy.

In this Valentine Special series, each day of the month, I will highlight a different facet of love in the form of a haiku. Hope you stay with me throughout this journey with all your support and love.
“The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart.” Helen Keller

Here is my first dedication to love.

Love illuminates

heart in euphoric rapture

for eternity!
