Meditation with a Pen…

Mandala Art.jpg

Meditation is silence,

Silence is within..

From within, erupts a beautiful fountain,

When the mind is silent and the pen speaks !!


Happy to share this creation from one of my meditative states…

Life’s Maze..

life's maze

Different paths of life,

Some circular, some curvy,

Some straight like a ramrod, some topsy-turvy,

Some pave our way and are arduous, some joyous, some unpleasant treacherous ones,

Unpredictable twists and turns,

Some bushy and thorny,

Sometimes a simple and plain journey,

We ought to find our ways,

Through life’s difficult maze !!

‘YUM’or M

Today morning, I called up the report section of a hospital, to follow up on a health report and wanted them to email it to me. This is how the conversation went:

Customer Health Executive (C.H.E) : Thank you for calling xxxxxxx hospitals, how can I help you today?

Me : I had the test done on xxxx date. I wanted to check if the reports are ready?

C.H.E : Kindly be on line ma’am, while I check on the same.

Me : Sure, thanks.

C.H.E : Thank you for being on line Ma’am. Yes your reports are ready.

Me : Can you please email the reports to me ?

C.H.E : Sure ma’am. Can I have your email id please?

Me : It’s deepikaM xxxxxxx

C.H.E : Yes ma’am, I’ll email it.

Me : Could you please repeat the email id?

C.H.E : deepika N (N as in Nagaland) xxxxx @

Me : No,No, it’s deepika M, M as in Madras..

C.H.E : N as in Nagaland…?

Me : No, not Nagaland, It’s M as in Madras/ Mangalore

C.H.E : Oh, okay it is deepika ‘M’ (pronouncing it as ‘YUM’), Must be contemplating, hmmm.. I wonder why these people can’t get their pronunciations right 😦

Me : Yes please !! Thank You !!

I realized, I have learnt my alphabets and phonics all wrong 🙂 🙂

I need to be trained all over again to pronounce M as ‘YUM’ and also, to remember to complement my mom next time, on her dish, saying it’s really M


PC : Internet

Lying down on the vast green meadows,
Amused and joyful sighting their own cute shadows,
Under the expanse of the vast blue sky,
Waiting to watch a movie, to play by..

The screen, reflecting ones own thoughts and beauty,
Holding hands, with dear ones for eternity,
Imaging Clarity, purity and divinity,
Dancing and swaying in nature’s shrine,
Enjoying the golden light of the glowing sunshine.

Shades of pink, adding a dash of blush to these crowning glories,
Living a life time in a week, withering away, giving us beautiful memories,
Mesmerising one and all, with their blissful stories,
These are the pretty pinks, from potpourries !!
