“A smile is something you can’t give away; it always comes back to you.”

Once while sitting in a clinic, I happened to see an old lady, most probably in her 80s, sitting alone. She looked rather despondent and down-and-out. What made me notice her was she had a striking resemblance to my late Grandmother who left us when I was 8 years old. I smiled at the lady not expecting a response because who in  today’s world would smile at a total stranger. But the sudden huge generous smile in return filled my heart with happiness and serenity. It was also noticeable that she who came there with a gloomy face  was all smiles from that moment.

This was an incident which made me realize the true powers of a simple curve. So always go out with a smile on your face, give one to who has non and see its magical powers. And trust me smiling can even make you feel good. After all…. You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile 🙂


It All Started with a Kiss and Ended with a Kiss

He didn’t know what was to come,
All he knew was He would have to endure pain.
She too didn’t know,
Just knew it would sting.

They were joined by a kiss.
An unforeseen bliss
In their anticipated sore life.
And there started their joyful life.

She waited for His touch each day.
He looked forward to Her feel every day.
Neither was complete without the other.
For their master too, needed them both.

The pain of being sharpened never bothered Him,
As long as He could be with Her.
And she too bore the scars of the stings proudly,
For they were symbols of true love.

But, their master wasn’t so pleased.
She was the first to go, rumpled into a ball.
Shortly came He, so small, so cannot be used.
But they were together.

In those last moments,
His tip was close to Her,
She could feel the sting, their last kiss,
In the bittersweet story of love
Between a pencil and a paper.
