The cat and the blood


it was just few days before exams,i was at home.it was afternoon 3.00 pm.dad was returning to office.he called mom,his voice was quite raised.we understood that something was wrong.when we went outside he showed the marks of blood near the flower pots.it was clear that an animal has gone that way with its prey.we guessed it was the cat which always tried to drink milk from our kitchen.few days back mom had told that the cat has become 'non-vegetarian' ,it has started eating other little creatures.the truth is,cat is a carnivorous animal.
then we went along those blood-marks,trying to know where that cat might have gone.it was clear that the cat was hid in bathroom.at that time dad had gone.none of us dared to go inside.i had read in a book that when an animal is with its prey,it may attack anyone who disturbs.so we waited till dad returns.we started discussing about the cat,it's prey,what that prey may be?a frog?a lizard?no,the blood marks were quite bigger,so thought the prey may be a big creature.i rarely like cats because i am afraid of their sharp nails.many times they had troubled by drinking milk,also a cat had broken one beautiful idol at home.
dad came back,we informed about the cat.he went inside the bathroom,made that cat run outside.then we saw a 'horrible scene'.the cat was walking slowly,unable to run,it was badly hurt.one of its leg was half broken,it was still bleeding.for protection it was hid inside bathroom.
i don't know how that cat got hurt,i don't know where that cat went,whether that cat is still alive or not.but whenever i see any cat walking near my home i believe it's the same cat and it's alright now.this incident has changed my image regarding cat.i won't fear to that extent because i know it won't harm anyone unnecessarily.
this incident also realised me that,i have to think twice before coming to judgement about anything,even if i see through my own eyes.

Ruins of the fort disturbed me




it was not for the first time that i visited Bidar,but i was more curious this time.it may be because of the two historic novels which i had read recently.there was a time when i hated to study history,especially in the high school days.i always thought what's the use of studying past.but thanks to the great writers like 'S.L.Bhirappa' and 'Ta.Ra.Su' who changed my views regarding history and it's study.
29 July 2009,i went to Bidar with my cousins.it was 11:45 am when we reached the fort.the clouds saved us from the harsh rays of sun.first we saw one of the bastions,stood on it,touched the huge cannon surmounted on it.the wonderful view that i got standing on that bastion is just unforgettable.but there were no guides,no one who can explain the history of the fort.every stone said it's own story,but i hardly understood that.some part of the fort were closed,not allowing the visitors to see that.one of them is 'Rangeen Mahal'.there's a museum,even that's good.the fort is maintained in a good condition.while seeing the fort i just went on guessing that,this may be the palace,here the soldiers might have stood as defence,this may be the swimming pool,this may be........
i saw how a particular dynasty dominated the rule of other,at some places i could see that how a particular culture was suppressed by the other.
felt bad about myself that,why didn't i study the history before i visited the fort?the wonderful fountains and garden are so beautiful.i was feeling to capture everything but i had no camera.i tried hard to capture everything in my eyes........
few thoughts came into my mind.next time when i visit any fort I'll study it's history because i can't depend on any 'guides' and I'll carry a digital camera with me.when i shared these thoughts with my cousin,he told what's the use of it?what's the benefit to study the history?.......
i couldn't answer him.
then i decided,next time when i visit any fort I'll go with someone having the same interest as mine.it took two hours for us to come out of the fort.
though i came out of the fort physically,mentally my mind lingered in those ruins of the fort.
after i returned,searched for the information regarding the fort of Bidar.few links from where i gained little bit information regarding the fort.
i collected the images from 'Google images',first one is the entrance of the fort,second one is the wonderful view of the palace that we get when we stand in front of the museum,the third one is a snap of Rangeen Mahal.

Friends in my life


friends play a very important role in my life.at present i have very few friends.i don't know how far it is good to classify friends as good friends,close friends,best friends,just friends......
but it is true that every friend has his/her own importance.everyone has a 'best friend',even i too have one.i had to wait for 16 years to get such a friend.i believe that for a relation to be strong,there should be friendship between them.it may be the relationship of a mom and daughter or husband and wife.
since my childhood i have got many friends.many of them departed in the journey of life.as my dad used to get transferred once in every three years,i could stay in a city only for three years.so once in 3 years i used to have new school,new friends and new neighbours.i can never forget the pain i suffered in every departure and every new adjustment.but life goes on.i couldn't keep contact with many of my 'lost friends'.i just have their greeting cards and letters to remember them.but very rarely it happens that we again meet the friends whom we had said bye long back.even i have got such a friend back in my life once again after a long break of 5 to 6 years.as years passed i got few good friends,though we departed still we are in contact.thanks to the technology.
a great writer says we should be the best friend of ourselves because most of the time in our daily life we spend with ourselves.if today what i am,then there's a part of all of my friends.from every friend i learnt one or the other thing,like,to be generous,to be truthful,to hope,to dream and more than that to be what i am.sometimes we also get some bad memories in making friends.i think a lot before making someone as my friend because if once i consider anybody as my friend then it's very difficult for me to break that relationship.
few things i have learnt in my life till now regarding 'friendship',they are:
1.it's better to be alone than to be in a bad or disagreed company.
2.don't take someone too close to your heart until and unless you realise that even you are close to their heart.
3.don't take any of your friend for granted.
4.don't talk about one friend with the other unnecessarily.
5.it's better to have friends with same tastes and interest.
now with the evolving of networking sites the meaning of friendship is little bit changed.we have the people in our friends list whom we have never met and talked to.yet i have found some of my 'lost friends' in such sites and i am really thankful to it.
today being 'Friendship day' i would like to remember all of my friends and i thank God for making my life colourful with such wonderful and special friends.
i have read many forward messages,quotes and poems regarding friends and friendship,but this one i like a lot,that is,a forward message-
'we make so many friends,some become dearest,
some become special,felt in love with someone,
some go abroad,some change their cities,
some left us,we left some,
some are in contact,some are not in contact,
some don't contact because of their ego,
we don't contact some because of our ego,
what ever they were,how ever they are,
we still remember,love,miss,care for them
because of the part they played to make 'MEMORIES'............
Happy Friendship day!!
