A Quest on Overdrive … :)

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

Because you loved me…


These words, hauntingly beautiful, and profoundly meaningful touch me today, as I think of the wonder you have been, in my life. You, Arjun, and you Ashwin 🙂 And what better day than today to tell you both this, I thought, when Arjun’s special day is here! Again, so happily again 🙂 🙂

The lyrics are here, sung in the inimitable magical loveliness of Celine Dion’s exceptionally tender voice: Because you loved me…

On Youtube, here it is:


My Sun Child
Each moment of your being
Has been a wonder of a journey
Lessons learnt with you
Joys shared with you…
The tremors of tears, seemed less shattering
When held close in your love…
And the light of your eyes, they blotted many
A dark day’s travails

On yet another threshold you now stand
The brink of another discovery in life
New paths to traverse, new passages to chart
New voyages to set sail upon!

You know, don’t you, my dearest
You’ll still be held by the hand,
You’ll still be pushed forward, each time you hesitate 😀
You’re still going to be kicked in the backside
And you’ll still be hooted out, and hounded each day
Each darned day, with all our love,
Of those who will never never let you go 🙂 🙂

Love you very very much, Arjun!
Happy Birthday, dearest! God Bless, always!


A pleasant discovery this day, was that even though there is zilch activity on this blog, I found that the WP stats mentioned it got 157 hits yesterday. The search terms, for the past few days have been associated with “Vishu”, and so curiosity led me to google it. Bingo! This curious cat turned into a smug, delighted cat :P. Combing her pretty whiskers, and frisking her lovely tail, she shares this with you, that her blog and Nikhil Narayanan’s blogs are on the first page of google, when you search for “vishu”! Oh thank you, thank you, for those admiring looks as well 😀 :D!

So I took a screenshot, and here it is 🙂

My blog on the first page of google search for “vishu”

Thanks to all of your words for, and reads from, this space. I have been lax in my replies. Now that school work is almost out of the way, for another 3 weeks, I shall get responsible on my blog too, and be a good hostess, and reply. Thank you for your patience!

Vishuaashamsagal, to each of you.

  11. Oh even if I am on a break I keep getting spam and comments on the most popular posts due to Mr. Google. 🙂


    • Reema, thank you for being here. Well, spam is universally a companion, whether one wants it or not, I guess :D! Mr. Google, as you so nicely put it, is always on the job, isn’t he? Lol
