Wednesday whispers...

Today is a big day for me...I am writing a blog for the very first time! and I seem to be stuck!!!!
Where do I begin???? For an inveterate chatterbox, that is indeed something foxing, to say the least!!

well, i will begin with my morning walk. As i strolled along, i was assaulted by the overpoweringly pleasant  aroma of a meal being cooked, out in an open adjoining construction site. these poor construction labourers began their day with the basics...and then go on to a day of harsh toiling labour. Being paid a pittance, and made to live in the most pathetic conditions, they are still an unfailingly resilient lot. Perhaps it is the harsh realities of life that make them so stoic, yet the simple repast that they prepared for their nourishment, displayed none of the angst that surrounds their lives.

seems to me, there is a lesson to be learnt out there. do whatever needs to be done, in a spirit of dedication. it is qualities such as love, devotion and perfect execution that bring even the most mundane chores to life. like somebody posted on fb...there are no ordinary moments...i say, one chooses to make moments, either ordinary or exceptional!!!

  4. Dear Kutts,

    Hi good opening!! trusted you to start with something to do with food...haha...after the cookery tips i got from you at Geeta's place.

    Excellent observation on construction workers. They dont have the luxury of warm bed and sheets, warm water for bath and rest of thenthins we take for granted every morning!! Yet they wake up with a spirit of looking forward to a hard day!! And ofcourse morning food must be meaning a lot to them to keep going for th whole day!!

    Basically i beleive that cooking tasty food for self or others is like offering a service to God. And i know you are good at it.. I am always extremely grateful to people who feed me good food!! Be its my mom,friends like you or even Chef at the restaurants. It is is such a simple thing to do yet so meaningful....means survival for many like construction workers. Lets tahnks God for giving us the luxury of having more than two meals a day and lets try not to waste food.

    Keep writing sweetheart...i am your fan...Looking forward to an interesting exchange of thoughts on your blog...all the best!!

  5. good...you started the blog with a reference to morning walk-an activity that many of us indulge in, to start our day...I am considering that your blog life is like a new born day...hoping that it will see more colors of the sun, more hours of emotions getting expressed, more hustle and bustle to find its ways, experience, love and care...and of course..haikus...oh...I wish I could learn how to write them...

    happy blogging maam.

  7. Welcome aboard my sweet buddy.. With your wonderful talent it was a wonder why you did not think of blogging earlier.. Chalo.. der aye, durust aye..
    The make-shift kitchens at construction sites have always held my attention too.. We donot need much to be happy and kick start for the day. Simplicity is the essence of beauty. Beautiful weather now..be up with the lark..take a deep breath open your arms wide..universe in your clasp.. inhale lungful of some distant burning firewood..life's just begun!!
