See the Sea

See the sea through my eyes. Feel my experience through my words.

Introduction:   Malpe  a small town in South Karnataka is renowned for beach, fishery. Has a small Port. Forms a part of the enchanting konkan coast, which I did mention in my "Gokarn Visit" post too.  St.Mary's Island that stands few kilometres away from the shores of malpe is a heavenly place. About 20-30 minutes by ship[passenger trips twice a day] from the shore. Each visit to the island lured us for more. Never to cease natural beauty that attracts a  decent tourist crowd.

Regular city buses carrying local and outside passengers is a common scene. A conductor is seen dangling at the bus-door,  calling out for passengers, by whistling loudest, screaming at his highest vocals and constantly beating the sides of the bus as if it were his drum for the day.

Zoomed in view-St.Mary's Island from Malpe Shore.

Silhouette of little figure
Ecstatic rush, splashing waves, a happy run
Teeny weeny gal greets waves with  fun.

Waves- Malpe Shore
Roaring waves hands clasped with the cloud
A rhythm they make as they sing aloud
Waving at every human eye pointing at them

Beckoning you with its ultimate charm

Recent developments in the Udupi district did throw Malpe in the limelight with its new traveller's Bungalow. One lasted for more than a decade in its ruined state with some doors and windows in its vestiges. As children, during our visits we had named it "bhooth bangla". Parking lots more organised now. Also the eat out stalls where fresh "fish fry" is served too!

P.S:- If you happen to visit don't forget the fish fry. Vegetarians you have the "Churmuri" that is puffed rice fully spiced with scrumptious spices, onions,tomatoes,coconut oil garnished with coriander leaves]

Converses With My Mirror

This post is on  Blog Adda for it's Spicy Saturday picks. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My tiny world of poetry is just a few words minced with my thoughts. 
We all must have talked to our selves, to the mirror, sharing the heap of thoughts that we stir in our minds. We must have taken that time to release the thoughts in front of the picture that formed when we faced the mirror. Apparently we realize the mirror is the path, from our eyes to our soul through the mind and the heart.

Fighting the battle of, I know you, or, hey do  I know you? eyes started at the mirror, and shut themselves slowly, in pain.
Fighting the battle of, am I you, or you resemble me? the mind  grappled, with a mountain of emotions, facing the mirror, in vain.
Fighting the battle of, you are pretty, or  is your mi…

Those coded cognitive toddler stories; Bubbly gestures; Lively imaginations: Their sparkling eyes, innocent charm; Inquisitive and persistent questionnaire - Children

We are all stories in the end. But those unending stories our children paint in their own words,  fill up the blanks of our life to be some of  the finest chapters. Isn't it?

It was last week, a cloudy evening 7pm. I walked in my backyard with my cranky little son, a toddler. And he had so much to express how the moon had finished dinner too early and slept off (hidden) inside the clouds. How it will pee and we all will get rains! I was astonished and added fuel to fire encouraging him to continue. He then told me the sun and the moon do fight a lot too to reach "his house"! Wildest imagination eh?

Death Of A Sexist

Has any of you with sons there, walked into baby stores and picked toys bright pink and purple? How about pink and purple clothing? No? Well, wait till you want to prove the paradigm wrong. I have been doing so. Few years ago, I used to buy gorgeous Barbie and thousands of her accessories for my little girl! Also bought Barbie her boy friend, castles and what not! I thoroughly enjoyed watching my girl spend hours dressing and undressing Barbie and cooking plastic meals for a party. Now, imagine my son doing the same!
Wondering he will soon come back to his senses. He must only be doing his job. Pile up toy cars and trucks, fire few bullets from his toy gun and box me right and left. Well, that's what he is expected to do, right?  

Now, If i called it sexism, would you agree with me or not?

On other hand, in our self absorbed sane society we have gender specific roles. Woman has to cook whatsoever happens, and the man is the head of the family. We are assigned rules by our normal soci…
