A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

Metamorphosis :)


I’ve always wondered what it is with change that simultaneously fascinates, frightens, freaks one out, and sometimes repels :)But always but always brings a sense of wonder. As I feel today!!

Today I write about one that has unfolded before my eyes, that took place for me and others, because it changed him. Whom? The little one of course 🙂 About whom, I have shared, here and here 🙂 and here 😀 :D!

From the shy and reserved and icky picky baby he was to shy little cub he slowly grew to be, flowering slowly but surely, smiling more, making friends quietly, he finally came to his own in his high school and later in college, when he assumed his rightful place as Lion of his Pride 😛 (Lol! He was House Captain, in his final year at school,  and President of his Civil Engg. Branch Association at College :D)!

Yes, he is a Leo. And yes, he seems to reflect most of the characteristics (he discovered the joys of reading fairly recently, and more so, Linda Goodman’s “Sun Signs” from my collection 🙂 🙂 ); I always thought he might by one of the quieter lions. I now realize there are no quiet ones I have come across :D, yours truly included 😀 :D!!!

He’s now gone off, to attend his first interview, on a job hunt, to Bangalore. I know he will be satisfied with how he does, though he will want to constantly push his limits 🙂 🙂 And it will not matter much, the result, because he’s got so far on his own steam, and will propel himself further. Something I never thought I’d really see, but then there he is… 🙂 All those Leo characteristics cannot be hidden under any bushel I guess 😆

It’s his birthday today. I hope he’s given the best present ever, when he makes it through this day 🙂 With Pride.

Happy birthday, Ash 🙂 🙂 You’re the best!!!

And may God Bless you, always!!!

I guess I’ll never tire of saying this : There is nothing you cannot do, Ashwin!!! And, I know you know it too!!! Therein lies the magic that is YOU!!!


Belated wishes (only a day late :D, for 2 August 🙂 ) to another gorgeous Leo… our very own Lioness, Indygurl :) She’s in another universe right now, but I know we all miss her, and our blessings are with her  🙂 🙂

May the best and most wonderful things always but always happen to you too, Abhi 🙂 🙂 Love you!!!
