The fabric of Time

December 28, 2018

Another year comes to an end.
My daily calendar has just a few pages left
That, like leaves on an autumn tree,
Will fall, and be consigned
To the past, and to memory.
It is we who mark the flowing fabric of Time
With patterns that we call days, months, years.
One such pattern is being completed
On the loom of Eternity.
Under these patterns, these motifs
Runs the lasting warp and weft
Of Time itself…moving smoothly, inexorably
One cannot predict how the patterns
Soon to come, will be shaped.
What colours will they carry?
The red of bloodshed? The white of peace?
The yellow of illness? The blue of sadness?
We do not know…
We flow on, too,
Along with the fabric of Time.

Today it is the turn of the Economic Times…

We seem to have an epidemic of day-date mismatch…see this…

I am sure there are going to be red faces around the Economic Times today!

A co-incidence in the date…

July 17, 2006

Yesterday, I went for a drive with my close friends, and remarked that it had been a long time since we had done a “singing” drive….they pick me up, the entire family of parents and 3 children, and we go for a long drive during which we all sing….and Jayesh said, why don’t you sing now? So I sang one of his favourites, “Aap ki nazrOn nE samjhA”.

I came back home, and late at night, was rooting around my LJ entries trying to find something else I had written….and found this. Look at the date…what a coincidence!

Rain and warmth….
Close friends picked up, packed me in their Tavera… a family of 5 who included me in their evening drive through the pouring rain, while we individually and together, sang favourite songs….rain is wonderful…IF you have a nice warm place to shelter in, your livelihood doesn’t depend on the weather, and you are assured that you will have a hot meal when you feel hungry….how lucky we are.

Current Mood: thankful

Current Music: still singing from the car trip….
