Playing F.A.V.O.U.R.I.T.E.S

Linking in to the monthly party on Colours Dekor and very happily at that :)

The past holds a lot of importance to me as it has shaped me into what I am today. Good or bad; memories are something which most of us will carry in our hearts and minds till the very end, isn't it?  I dug up some old favourite pics and in the process; I rekindled a lot of memories as well. Of joyous laughter, of precious moments frozen in time and; amazingly, of days that I sometimes I wish I could rewind to.

It comes as no surprise to me; that in the list of my favourites - photographs are always at the top. I love going back to old albums be it digital or the good ol' prints; and I find myself being transported back into the very depth of those photographs. 

I am pleased to share here a few photographs of some priceless moments in my life; which carry within them a lot of meaning; and some feelings that I can never express well enough in words :)

Here I am below, enjoying some time with my mom and sister on a family holiday to Ooty in 1994-95 [me on the right]

....celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary :):) May 17th 2005

....a priceless photograph of my little baby boy - in November 2006

............Watching a beautiful sunrise in Madrid - September 2011

...the doorway leading to my home here in Abu Dhabi 

I clicked this photograph of my son in January 2010 - everything seems perfect in here; and I love this for its blatant innocence :)

...My favourite plant - a Tulsi :)

 My favourite avatar of the Almighty - Lord Ganesha who has respected our faith in Him and never let us down!

Music is an integral part of my life - no two ways about it! Here is my favourite song which I used to sing a lot as a child especially at competitions and I have won prizes for it too. It's 'Lakdi Ki Kathi' from the Hindi movie Masoom :)

And another one - this time in Tamil. 'Raasathi Unnai Kaanatha Nenju' from the movie 'Vaidehi Kaathirundhaal' - is an eternal favourite of mine. It always, always brings tears to my eyes whenever I hear it. There is a lot of hidden emotion in the melody and the lyrics that shakes me up like almost no other song can. Hear it to believe it. Even if you don't understand the lyrics; the song will rattle your senses.

And I sign off with a cute ant-elephant joke I just read and which will be a favourite one soon ;)

There was a football game between a team of elephants and a team of ants. An ant gets hold of the ball and runs to the goal line, but suddenly an elephant stands in front of the ant and crushes it. The crowds spring up and start booing the elephant . The referee said to the elephant, "Why did you crush that poor little ant?" The elephant said with tears in his eyes, "I only meant to foot trip him" !!!

I am sure you loved reading about my favourites - where's yours? I'm waiting :D
