Showers and sunshine play hide and seek,making life really wonderful.Thank you so much for your wholehearted support for a noble mission of spreading a word against drugs,smoking and drinks.I could feel the sincerity in your words.Deep down inside everyone has the urge to fight against the vices.In each facet of my life, close and caring friends stand by me;that is a great relief and comfort.
It was nice to go for a walk when it was drizzling.Enjoying the moist leaves swaying in the breeze,the water droplets falling on my head,I walked ahead.It was so refreshing to mind and body..For the first time, I was going to pay the telephone bill in the post office.This location is so convenient ,having all the basic facilities within walkable distance.The post office is located in a room in the groundfloor.I sat on the chair and waited till someone else paid many bills together.Normally I lose my patience very fast ,but the small mukooty pookal [the tiny yellow flowers that we use for making pookalam for Onam]at the entrance attracted my attention.I was so happy to see these little bright yellow flowers and they reminded of my childhood.:)
Exactly these little things change our moods and affect our mental status.These days I can see tiny cute birds,cuckoos and a strange grey colured bird with white dots all over the body,eating the fruits of curry leaves.They unfold a fascinating and beautful world,specially for me.:)They motivate me a lot!There are numerous ways to be happy.Figure out what works for u!
I thought of writing about the little things that make us happy.
The soft,tender and loving words Amma tells me,
The sincere 'hi' in chat boxes,
The strong hand that I have to hold,
And the heart that understands me.
The simple moments that I spend with flowers,
The butterflies that flutter by.
The smile which I receive daily,
Giving the same even to strangers.
The patient hearing that you offer.
The voice that reaches me full of love and hope,
The silence that is very strong,
Which helps in improving connections.
The sincere heartfelt comments that flow,
The loving quieries,''Where are you?''
The very thoughts on my sparrows,
Whom I have left behind far away!
My dearies ,my love and life
Who keep an alert check on me,
The school children giggling and passing by,
So engorssed in their own world,
The raindrops that make me romantic,
The fictions and stories that take me,
Into a dreamy world,
The unlimited dreams and the silent reflections,
The loveliest and happy innocent face of baby,
The untold chapters of my life,
Each and every moment of my life!
''A friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart''.
Let us make each day a new beginning filled with words of joy!Today before you speak an unkind word,think of someone who can't speak.You will never be rude to others.When depressing thoughts seem to get you down,come back to sincerely yours!You will have a smile to take back![over confident?nah-]:)
With an emhasis on values,let us celebrate life!Let us spread the message of hope,love,peace and joy that will elevate and lift everyone's spirits high!Be compassionate and kind to the fellow humanbeings!The key to happiness is turning to nature.Roll up your sleeves and do that!:)Life cannot move on without trust.Tust your friends and respect the person's individuality!
It's Anu signing off.................
Remembering the blessings received from the Omniscient,the Omni present,The Omnipotent,
Requesting you to wear a bright smile always,
And pass that smile to all those u have come across,
As it is the best gift you can give someone!
Make a difference to all the lives you touch!
Reminding you,Anu loves you dil se,
Stay connected or I will be lost!:)

Rainy days are here again!But then we get occasional sunlight,so life is cool!I thank everyone of you who offered me your friendship and I value your friendship as priceless!The kind and generous words inspire me a lot!As a blogger,when I have a platform to express my true feelings,share my thoughts and dreams,I strongly believe,I have a responsibility towards society.I dream of a society where there is unity, peace,happiness,harmony and health prevail hand in hand!The young generation can do a lot for developing a better nation.
I live in a society where drugs are easily available along with drinks.I know a survivor who is leading a family life abroad.But then he was given the right treatment at right time.As a counsellor I have taken interest in knowing the root causes for becoming victims to drugs.I have heard about marijuana,cocane and LSD.Parenting becomes challenging.Parents have great influence on their teens.They must take time to protect their teens from this dangerous addiction.We have only one life to live and let us don't mess it up.so,don't,''choose the booze''.
Have you ever come across the frightening facts of the lives that have been shattered by using drugs?
The destructive effects of using drugs should be stressed in daily conversations.The people those who use drugs are more likely to engage in violent behaviour,stealing and join other gangs.Let us teach them to say,''I'm too good for drugs''.
The individual,family and society,
Are destroyed and spoiled forever!
The young generation use drugs in more numbers!
Self esteem is often low at this age,
Unaware of the health-risks involved,
Youngsters become the addicts!
Peer pressure may be a strong reason,
To experiment with illicit drugs!
lack of communication with parents and siblings,
The hectic life style of parents,
Lack of understanding the cause of sorrows,
The wrong selection of friends,
The computers to cellphones to i-podes,
The fast-paced culture and life style,
The stressful events and tiring situations,
Lack of awareness about the coping mechanisms
Are a few reasons to spoil a precious life!
There is no end to the long list.
Let us be careful right from now,
About the drugged,drunken state of teens,
A conversation over time is a good step,
Showing that parents do love and take care!
Take time to bridge the gap between teens and you!
Helping the teens to live a dignified life,
In a harmonious and happy society,
By mending the broken hearts,
With lots of love,care and concern!
Let us help them to forget the dark nights,
And help to see the light at the other end.
I request all of you,friends,
Say NO to drugs and drinks,
You are so dear to me and to your people!:)
We must make the youth aware of the dangerous consequences of using drugs.''You don't need heroin to be a hero''.Let us be the part of a movement that work for a drug free society.No more lives should be shattered.Spirituality and religion will help the addicts to recover their normal life.
Assuring you,I will not let you fall,
Reminding Anu loves you dil se,

Looking behind,I realise,childhood ,the carefree and beautiful time was the best phase of life!
I have done many posts on friendship before;But today when I received touching mails,miss me note,loving morning mail,I feel like expressing my gratitude to all my friends who have brightened my life!
Yesterday one of my friends asked me what my concept is about friendship?
My friend is the one who understands me,trusts me,makes me feel he/she will be always there for me!I can count on him/her.I can share all my silly and serious thoughts,fears,hopes and dreams!He/she is the one who surprises me by an unexpected call or a mail.:)To whom I can sing my heart and who builds in the spirit when I feel low!He/she is a good listener as it is difficult to tolerate me with my never ending talks.Someone who makes a difference to my thoughts,attitudes and life,but accepts me as I am!When problems upset me,I can wake him up even at midnight!I can feel his/her touch even in the blowing wind.He/she always assures me that there is a tomorrow.With him,my stresses disappear and troubles fade away!Knowing that he is my true friend I can sit back and relax!:)
''Friendship is a feeling of comfort and emotional safety with a person. It is when you do not have to weigh your thoughts and measure words, before keeping it forth before your friend. It is when someone knows you better than yourself and assures to be your side in every emotional crisis. It is when you can sleep fighting and get another morning with a better understanding. Friendship is much beyond roaming together and sharing good moments, it is when someone comes to rescue you from the worst phase of life. Friendship is eternal.''
ALWAYS REMEMBER A BROKEN EGG CAN NOT BE REVERSED.
So,let us take care of our words.they should never be hurting.I have grown fond of you, dearies!Even whom I have never seen,have touched my heart!But I want to ask you the question today,Are you my friend?
''A FRIEND IS SOMEONE WHO KNOWS THE SONG IN YOUR HEART AND CAN SING IT BACK TO YOU WHEN YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN THE WORDS''.
I hope I have made myself clear!
Friends,before we speak an unkind word,we must think of someone who can't speak!How terrible we will feel!So,from today let us speak the soft and loving words.Cause a smile!You will be blessd!
I feel happy that you like the refreshing posts,For,only with your support I can go miles............
Reminding you Anu loves you dil se,

Dear Friends ,
Weather is clear these days with the exceptional rains.I was busy yesterday attending two parties,one in my neighbour's house on the occasion of fixing their son's marriage and the other one a real grand dinner, in connection with the marriage reception of the son of a leading doctor of the city!The couple looked as if made for each other and their marriage was a dream bloomed !They knew each other right from 9th std but later they had to part thier ways!But you all know certain sparks lighted in our hearts get brighter along with time.So,distance and time did not matter and they were always steady!''Out of sight need not be out of mind''.:)Now both of them are doctors and they have united forever!One could see love in their eyes and feel the nusic in their hearts!When love is in the air.even you can feel music even in silence!
HAPPY WORLD MUSIC DAY TO ALL OF YOU!
''The earth has music to those who listen''.
Right from childhood we are taught the shlokas of Bhgavat Geeta and devotional songs.Amma had taken music as special subject for B.T course!
I can hear the soft soothing notes of music,
In my Amma's sweet and melodious voice,
When my Amma sings the lullabies and devotional songs,
In the tinkle of the temple bells,
In the golden rays of the morning sun,
That fill my mind with positive thoughts!
When the cool breeze kisses my cheeks,
And brushes away my hair strands,
In the passing clouds dropping a loving note for me;
Letting me know,someone misses me a lot!
When the sea changes its colour into brighter shades,
By the reflections of the lights from the ships!
When the raindrops fall on the roof tops,
When someone asked me unexpectedly,
In the chirping of the cute little birds,
In the silence of the lovely dawn.
When someone adds the soft pastels of serenity,
During the adverse times of life!
To rewrite the whole life on a fresh sheet!
My friends have left behind!
Music inspires to look forward and dream higher..........

The girls who wear blue long skirt and white blouse go walking to school daily.they are from St.Ann's School.We also had the same uniform in school.
I had been to Thenjithukavu Devi Temple,Ayyanthole on Tuesday!It was my first visit to this temple.The Goddess is in the form of Bhadrakali holding thrishul!Dozens of bangles were tied to strings and offered to Devi!It is an offering seeking blessings to get married!The colourful glass bangles were looking so beautiful!The small cradles were also hung;that could be for the blessing of a baby!There are no upadevathas and so we can pray fast.Bhagaval Seva was going on and I could attend that.That was at night after deeparadhana.Whenever I reach a new temple I clear my doubts with the poojaris[priests] or old devotees with whom I feel comfortable.I interact and collect the information!The temple employees also help me in getting information!This temple has very peaceful and silent atmosphere!We can pray standing very close to the Deity!
