Vagaries of the Wandering Heart....

5 years old, all I can remember are some happy times, with the birth of baby brother, I wanted to hold him, play with the 11Lb bundly of joy....

10 years old, school and play, all in a day's work. No worries, eat sleep and enjoy life....

16 years old, graduated from high school, had to make the first important decision of my life, where was I headed, what did I want to do...and I thought that was biggest and most confusing decision of my life...Anyway, I went with my heart and chose to take up Science, not many girls coming from my background, my family chose.... and I have my mother to thank for supporting me! :) and encouraging me...

21 years old, graduated from undergrad and yet once again, I was the crossroads of my life where I had to make yet another "IMPORTANT" decision...I did not let Destiny dictate my life, but rather chose to write my own destiny...I wanted to spread my wings and soar higher and higher....so there I was, all my bags packed and waiting to a board a plane to Los Angeles, USA...no not to Hollywood... :), but to a very prestigious University to pursue my Masters Degree in Engineering....

This is where my life made some new, unexpected turns....Whoever coined the phrase "Getting wiser with age" must have lost it.... It should actually be: "Getting wiser with age and facing a new wisdom test ever friggin single day"...While I had great experiences in my life, happy ones, sad ones, tough ones, funny ones...it taught me a lot, made me stronger, I grew emotionally and yes... I realized that the phrase I just quoted above was justified in it's original form :) My life was enrichened with all the experiences...

Today, after 5 whole years, I am here, fitting the most beautiful part of my journey so far in the most condensed form ever....so many beautiful people I've met, so many memories to cherish, so many places seen, so many things learnt.....yet my desire to explore more, learn more is far from quenched!!!

Each day brings with it a new light, a new story on it's lips...waiting to unfold and become an integral part of my life and memories to be etched on my heart and mind.

As I travel in search of the significance of my existence, the role I am here to play, in search of the horizon, my destination, in quest of the eternal truth, my experiences with truth and life is what I have to share and leave behind....

Vagaries of the Wandering Heart. -Sunshine!

My heart is a vagabond, it cannot settle, it is restless to seek more,
The truth is what it seeks, the truth is what it craves, the truth is it's core.
I want to spread my wings and soar high, soar high into the sky,
New heights, I desire to reach, New skies I desire to fly.
My mind is a vagabond, it cannot settle, a cause it needs to champion
With the heart, it seeks love. With the soul it seeks a companion.
Together with love and aspiratons, I have begun this journey,
Set out to seek the truth, set out to seek eternity.
