The Most Beautiful Thing – Blogsplash!

Here’s another tiny ripple into the blogsplash that is happening today. Read on (what I have copy pasted from Shail Mohan 😀 ) to join in:



“What is your most beautiful thing?

Is it your one year old niece’s golden smile? The pale pink peony buds in your garden? A silver ring given to you by your grandmother? Your shiny red Vespa scooter? Is your most beautiful thing a place or a moment? Is it a philosophy or a value?

On Tuesday the 24th of April, I’m taking part in a Blogsplash to celebrate beautiful things, inspired by Fiona Robyn’s new novel, ‘The Most Beautiful Thing‘.

People all over the world will be blogging, tweeting & writing about their own most beautiful thing.

You could post a photo or write a prose piece about your most beautiful thing. You could write a small stone or show us a piece of artwork you’ve made in honour of your most beautiful thing. It’s completely up to you. You could be extravagant and post a whole series of your most beautiful things.

Writing Our Way Home are making a directory of everyone who’s taking part, and they will also re-post their favourite entries on their blog over the following month.”

My post will be in by tonight 🙂 🙂 (Hopefully!)

I do hope all the readers here will also join in, in whatever way you could! (And no, I have not yet read the book,  but I sure hope to! The book will be available on Kindle, for free, today and tomorrow, for those taking part 🙂 )

Find that this still holds good, for my views, of about four years ago 🙂 That is why this is shared, with wishes for the best for all observing Women’s Day, today!

I have been tagged by Indian Home Maker, on Feminism. I cannot put this off any more, it is too late already, and so, the usual rambles I go on, shall, this time I hope discipline themselves to suit the occasion and deliver themselves with dignity. At the same time I must issue a disclaimer, that at times this post could go way off the topic, entirely due to the writer’s rather delicate frame of mind, in not being able to apply herself fully to the task, having done no research, and having to attempt this from the gut – literally 🙂 Am perched on two cushions, on a rather uncomfortable chair [not having been able to indulge in the one thing I have been longing to buy, a solid straight-backed and supportive wooden arm chair, for my computer as those swivel thingys have not so far done…

For Love, because Love Never Fails!

For Love, because Love Never Fails. And also inspired by Solilo, and Indyeah 🙂

This day, I just want to share something a friend, whom I have never met, [but know to be a friend for the person I have come to know:)], had shared on this particular thought:

Love Never Fails.

He quoted from the Bible, that in itself, is self explanatory, and finds resonance in the true scriptures of all the different kinds of faith we follow. The simplest, sometimes the most complex and always the ONE thing that is the ONLY thing that keeps us HUMAN: Love.

From The Holy Bible, 1 Corinthians, Chapter 13, Verses 1 – 13

1Co 13:1 What if I could speak all languages of humans and of angels? If I did not love others, I would be nothing more than a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

1Co 13:2 What if…
