Honestly I have zero courage to write this post and accept what has happened, but I cannot and should not hide any more. 12th March my baby, my love, my life, my world decided to move on and leave us.

He did not even reach his 6th birthday and that hurts me more. Death is so final. One minute the one you love is breathing and absolutely fine. The next minute they are not with you any more. And your world is suddenly a meaningless place. I walk around wondering how effortlessly life is going on. How come everything around me is running so normally when my world has just collapsed. 

I will never get to hold him, kiss him, smell him, hear his bark, pull his ears, play with him, hide his toys, give him treats, feed him food and get his loving kisses ever again. And this shatters me every minute. I miss him every minute and each passing day gets more difficult to face. I still walk around the house hoping that maybe I will see him. Maybe he is right there, spying on me from some corner of the house. Maybe he is right there, holding his toy, waiting for me to run after him. Maybe he is right there, sitting by the window sill, waiting for me to come home.

He has gone, and it has broken me. It has broken me beyond words because I have loved him on the level of madness. I always thought love was beautiful. It is. 
But love breaks you and shatters you into a million tiny pieces.

You have given me unbelievable amount of love Tuli. You flowered my heart. I became "whole" because of you. You are now free and happy in a much better place. Our souls are connected and I know one day we will find our way back to each other.

A part of me wished I could go away with you. A part of me just wants to give up. It is difficult waking up in the morning. All my mornings have always started by hugging you tightly. Your memories are all over the house and each time I see them a sharp pain passes through my heart. Your toys, your food bowl, the red bowl in which you specifically needed ice cold water, every nook and corner of the house reminds me of you. 

I sit around mindlessly watching rubbish and making random flowers from paper. All these means are to distract me and keep me sane. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. There is a huge void in our lives now Tuli. Nothing seems to make sense any more. 

 But I am so grateful to God that he created you and gave us your love for six amazing years. You are a wonderful soul Tuli. 
 Thank you for everything that you given me and I hope I have showered you with all the love and respect you deserve. You have always healed me and made me a better person. You taught me what love actually means. Unconditional and pure.
 I have loved you more than anyone I know and I will always love you till the end of time. 

Sleep well my darling..sleep well.

  5. He was the heart and soul of the family.....he will be missed for not being physically present....however he remains in your heart and soul. Let him be xxx

  6. What a gentle, generous, memory. Everyone who has had a "fur person" as a member of their family will understand, and sympathize with your loss.

  7. Hugs Tanvi, for words are just not enough for this loss. I lost one of my boys in December and I don't think I will ever recover. Big hugs from me and my pack of 5 here. xxx

Of Modi's and mints...

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Because Mommy hates my eyebrows......

I hate this weather. It's all wet and weird. I am so surprised at myself for nearly finishing my commissions for September. Alongside I even managed to watch two movies. I had decided to watch them only on the completion of my work as a "treat", but well I just cannot say no to a movie night with K. Actually I cannot say no to anyone when it comes to watching a movie. So I ended up watching Freaky Ali which sucked. And Pink which did not suck at all. What a movie!

I called the "Mother" to discuss Pink and the seriousness it showcased about the way women are judged in the Indian society. After ranting for a couple of minutes about how we are perceived and shackled with responsibilities and judgements, she replies -
 "Have you done your eyebrows?"

Now my eyebrows are currently a crisis for my Mother. The fact that her daughter has disregarded the importance of physical maintenance is shocking for her. Since I have been piled this month with maddening w…

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
