    Vathi met Vaathi

     I recalled that precious moment when Shenoy sang for me at Candolim beach, when we all went for a picnic.

     Shenoy's Song-


    I know, who you are?
    I know! I know!


    Com'n Aha... aaaaaaa...


    People say, you are beautiful.
    I say you are adorable.
    I say! I say!


    I know who you are?
    I know! I know!


    With a Cresent-Moon Canthi,
    You are my Vathi.


    With an ornamental Acanthi,
    You are my Lecythi.
    You are my Vathi!


    You pose like a Primrose,
    In a Polyanthi.
    You are my Vathi.



    I know who you are?
    I know! I know!
    People say, you are beautiful.
    I say, you are adorable.
    I say! I say!



    You run on the beaches with bare feet,
    Sand says a flower is on the beat.


    You try catching the waves,
    Wave says, an utterly- butterfly moves.


    You move around on the Sea-shore,
    Air says, her hair is fragrant lavender.


    You giggle and do a happy dance,
    Sea says, a happy- peacock's rain dance.


    I know who you are?
    I know! I know!
    People say you are beautiful.
    I say you are adorable.
    I say! I say!


    You are my inside-out beautiful wife.
    You are my love!
    You are my wifey for life!
    You are my love.


    I know who you are?
    I know! I know!

    People say you are beautiful.
    I say you are adorable.
    I say! I say!

    Aha...ah.
    aaaaaaa.....

    Yeah!
    You are adorable…..

    Attitude matters

    Grandpa, I lost in the 200 meters run at school!

    Abhay! It's okay! How many people participated in the run?

    Ten students of 3rd grade Grandpa and I reached the finish line at the last.

    Oh! Why dear?

    I followed the moral told by you. "Slow and steady wins the race"

    When did I say that?

    The last Sunday night, you narrated a bedtime story of the Hare and Tortoise race.

    In the end, you told me that slow and steady wins the race. I followed this morale in the race.

    Oh! Dear little Abhay, I told that morale because the hare was lazy, as he underestimated that the tortoise is slow and he can win the race at any cost.

    But at the end,  the hare sleeps and the tortoise reaches the finish line and wins.

    "Oh! Dad, he was crying in the school until his physical training teacher motivated him," said Abhay's Mom Riddima.

    Grandpa! That's what the morale you told me. But today after I lost the race everyone called me little tortoise at School.

    Oh! Sorry to hear that Abhay. Why did they call you little tortoise?

    In the race when everyone was running fast, I walked slowly but I reached the finish line after everyone reached there.

    My physical training teacher scolded me. I mean giving a big lecture.

    Oh! What did he say?

    He said, "If your Grandpa told you the moral story of hare and tortoise. You will follow that in games at school. If you want to win the race you should run fast.

    It is the attitude of the hare that made it fail in the race. It's the head stubborn attitude that a hare can run fast, whereas a tortoise cannot.

    But the tortoise was steady with a strong attitude towards its goal to win the race.

    So the tortoise won the game even when it cannot run.

    Abhay thinks in a reverse way if the hare had the right attitude towards the game. It could win the game because of its strength speed.

    Always we should have the right attitude towards our goal. So that our positives help us winning and we can even overcome our negatives.

    I said, "so, we should have the right attitude towards our goals, it's not speeding or slow"

    The teacher said, "yes, Dear! Take an example of a slow-cycling game played by secondary high school students, which you have seen yesterday. The rule of this game is to do the slow-cycling without removing your leg from the paddle, the one who reaches the finish line in slow cycling mode without removing a leg from the paddle will be the winner. So here you have to be slow. Whereas the 200 meters race is for speed. Who reaches first with speed running will be the winner."

    Grandpa says, "yeah Dear! Your teacher is right. It's about attitude.

    Our attitude should be by our goals, our positive and negative characteristics."

    Grandpa! Then we have to change the moral of the story.

    No Dear! The writer of the story wants to say that even though the tortoise cannot run, it wins because "slow and steady wins the race"

    Probably, the inner meaning would have been this, the right attitude of tortoise made it win the race even though it cannot run and the wrong attitude of the hare, made it lose the race even though it can run at a good speed. As your teacher told.

    Then Grandpa, why you did not tell me this when you narrated the story?

    I didn't know about this Abhay. We were always taught that slow and steady wins the race as the morale of the story.

    Oh! Grandpa even your teacher told you the same.

    Yes! Dear.

    Which school did you study in?

    9. I'm afraid of

    When I started writing this book I had no idea about how to plan chapter names?
    Slowly I did it.. My chapter names are a part of the dialogue of my characters in that particular chapter. Situational chapter names.

    Like here I named chapter 7 " My name is Hamsavathi Adah Devaraj" which is a part of this dialogue in this chapter
    " Dr. Kanika reading the book in her room.
    She has completed reading half of the book.

    Before going to bed she reads a page with a line saying, " Vinay used to call me Hamsa in Goa University. I always hate, when he calls me Hamsa. He calls me Hamsa because my name is Hamsavathi Adah Devaraj."

    Her parents are continuing their familial legacy. They respect both Indian culture and Italian culture. That's why they named her Hamsavathi, an Indian name from the mantra
    "Hamsavathi mukhya shakti samanvitha" meaning " Goddess Durga who is surrounded by Shakthi or strength called Hamsavathi".
    Her Biblical name Adah means adornment.
    Great cultures.
    May God bless Vathi with peace of mind.
    It's time to sleep."

    Vathi met Vaathi

    Francesca reads the book written by Vathi.

    "After completion of training, I went to Goa University for PG. My parents accompanied me in the joining procedure. I took a room in a shared flat with Sufiya and Crystal. Sufiya is my classmate. Whereas Crystal belongs to Science.

    I shifted to Goa after 4months from the day I said yes to Shenoy's proposal. We planned to get married after the completion of my PG. We call our relation a Live-in but never meant to be in a physical relationship. Shenoy always supported me in education and I supported him in his work. Our relationship is about sharing responsibilities and friendship.

    Shenoy took me for a drive, lunch, and amusement park in Bangalore before I left for Goa.

    After two months he came to Goa. He always had a busy schedule. So, he could stay for only 1 day in Goa. He used to come on the morning flight and leave on the evening flight.

    Usually, I pick him from the airport. We went to our flat. I, my roommates and Shenoy cook meals together often.

    Vathi met vaathi

    Francessca says, "Dear, do you have any evidence to prove that your laptop was hacked?"

    Vathi says, "yes, Mom. I do have some on my phone. The moment I felt that my laptop was hacked. I took pictures on my phone. At that moment the print screen key in my laptop didn't work and the notification said that the print screen is locked.

    So, immediately I picked up my phone and took the pictures. I removed the backup sync of my google account from my phone, disconnected my laptop and phone as they are synced together with Bluetooth.

    I was afraid that the hacker might delete the proofs from my google drive. However, after two days you took my phone. I couldn't save any proofs, further.

    But I transferred all the files in my laptop to a pen drive for safety and security."

    किंडल बुक्स 2

    ऑफिस जाते हुए, कोई paperback नहीं बल्कि फोन पर पढ़ती हूं.. घर आकर टैबलेट पर या फोन पर ही कंटिन्यू करना और जहां जो वाक्य पसंद आया, उसे हाईलाइट करके या टाइप करके सोशल मीडिया पर share करना, धीरे धीरे आदत में शुमार हो चला है.. अब बहुत चुनिंदा किताबें खरीदती हूं, बाकी सब वहीं किंडल पर.. 169 रुपए महीने के खर्चे और amazon prime की बदौलत Kindle पर 10 किताबें मेरी लाइब्रेरी में हर वक़्त इठलाती हैं!

    जब अपनी किताब (जनवरी में Don't Hate The Don'ts) और (जून में फ़ुर्सत के पल) पब्लिश की, तो भी वहीं kindle पर.. आख़िर जानी पहचानी मंज़िल ही तो खोजते हैं हम सब..

    और फिर खरीदने में बेहद आसान है , सिर्फ ऑनलाइन पेमेंट करके, डाउनलोड ही तो करना है.. और पढ़ने में भी मुश्किल नहीं.. आते जाते, खाली वक्त में जैसे एफबी पर पोस्ट्स पढ़ीं, लगभग वैसे ही किताब भी पढ़ी.. आजकल के व्यस्त जीवन में खरीदने और पढ़ने के लिए अलग से समय निकालना भी तो दूभर ही हो चला.. और फिर physical books की तुलना में तो ebooks की कीमत भी बहुत कम..

    हालांकि एकदम फ्री किताबों की पक्षधर नहीं हूं.. मेरा मानना है कि जो किताबें खरीदकर पढ़ी जाएं, उनकी तासीर ही अलग होती है.. पर वहीं बहुत ज़्यादा कीमत रखने के पीछे की मंशा भी मुझे कम ही समझ आती है.. सो मेरे लिए तो 49, 99, 149 में मिलती किताबें मानो मुंह मांगी मुराद.. न दिल पर बोझ न जेब पर.. और अगर प्राइम मेंबर हों तो जितना मन में आए, बस उतनी ही पढ़ो, फिर एक नई वाली, आखिर ज़बरदस्ती तो इस मन को कतई नहीं भाती न!

    जीवन के हर मोड़ पर शब्दों से मुलाकात कुछ अलग ही रही है.. पर हर बार, उतनी ही भाव विभोर हो उठती हूं, जितनी कभी बचपन में हुआ करती थी.. बस अब लेखक का नाम याद ज़रूर रहता है, उनके लिखे से अपनापन उनसे भी जोड़ देता है न! अनुपमा सरकार

    किंडल बुक्स 1

    बचपन से ही चाव रहा पढ़ने का.. मम्मी की लाई कॉमिक्स हों, नन्दन, चंपक, सुमन सौरभ हो या कादम्बिनी और सोवियत नारी.. हर बार कुछ नया ढूंढ लेता था मन और मैं भाव विभोर हो उन कहानियों को अपने दोस्तों को जस का तस सुनाने बैठ जाती.. तब किसने लिखी, कहां पढ़ी, से कहीं ज़्यादा इस बात का ख़्याल रहता कि दिल को कैसी लगी!

    कुछ बड़ी हुई तो टैगोर, शरत चन्द्र, तोलस्तोय की दुनिया से परिचय हुआ, तब तक भाषा शिल्प शैली से भी मन प्रभावित होने लगा था.. पर हां, तब भी और अब भी, दिल को कैसी लगी, मेरे लिए सबसे ज़रूरी बात रही.. नामी लेखकों की बहुत सी किताबें आधे में छोड़ दीं तो एकदम अनजान राइटर्स को डूब कर पढ़ा.. हिंदी में कुछ कम, अंग्रेज़ी में कुछ ज़्यादा, पर कहानियां तो कहानियां, भावों में डूबी रही..

    दो रुपए में दिल्ली पब्लिक लाइब्रेरी का कार्ड बनवाकर जाने कितनी ही किताबें पढ़ीं.. फिर ऑनलाइन शॉपिंग और बुक फेयर के चलते भी ढेरों किताबें घर में आने लगीं.. धीरे धीरे कलेक्शन बढ़ा तो जगह की कमी और देखभाल की मुश्किल ने अपना सर उठाया.. कबाड़ी को देने का मन करता नहीं था, पर हारकर बहुत कुछ टके के भाव बेचा.. हालांकि एक कोशिश की थी, लाइब्रेरी में देने की, पर वो साधारण किताबों में इंटरेस्टेड थे नहीं और अमूल्य एडिशन मेरे पास नहीं थे.. सच कहूं, तब दुख हुआ था.. खरीदना, पढ़ना और फिर बन्द करके धूल में रखना या बेच देना, भाता नहीं था..

    अब पिछले 4-5 सालों से एक प्रेक्टिस अपनाई है, किताबों को किंडल पर पढ़ने की.. अनुपमा सरकार
