March 2011


There have been many times,i had felt very low and very unlucky in my life.But this little girl is truly a blessing for me, she is the one

who showers true love very very unconditionally

who gives loads of kisses when you really need it

who starts pressing amma’s leg with teeny hand,as soon as amma utters it is paining

whose laughter is true and makes a mood shift to you

who would want to share even the one little calcium chocolate with amma

who understandingly says “amma go to office,i will stay with laksha aunty(maid)”

who made every kid in the class utter “amma,amma” repeatedly,as told by her teacher

who comes running hurriedly to amma as she wakes up from a good night sleep

whom i trust to become a loving partner while growing up

and the one who gives a complete sense to any ending day

Thank goodness,for this sweet lil girl in my life.

P.S: Edited two more points.

Ani from Anisnest believes this blog has versatile properties and had awarded this “Versatile blogger award”.

Am much honored.Whenever i think versatility i remember Tamizh writer sujatha,may be there are lot others,but he is my favorite,who could discuss louis XIV furniture,wordsworth,puranaanooru,artificial intelligence,habeas corpus,chola dynasty all in one short story.

Sometimes when you confront someone with the truth you have found,you are suppressed?

Just because you are female,you are humiliated?

You cannot ask questions only because you belong to weaker sex?

You don’t even have basic rights only because you are women ?

They deny respect and equality for being a women?

The questions may continue further,but still there is no proper answer.Am extremely tired of being a women.

Heart felt wishes to that elderly  couple hearing the wedding bells for second time with the same person in their life.

Happy sashti aptha poorthi,appa and amma.

I guess almost all my readers are tired of what am writing these days.Even we are all tired and stressed out of the situation prevailing here.

We both are back to office,roads are almost empty and parking available everywhere.Schools are closed for students,staff working.Army tanks at all important places.Rumours are happening at its best and adds to the agony.I had never imagined such a thing would happen here before one month.

But DD had once told me Iran has interest in this tiny island and there are always chances of instability,but i never bought it.Now its very unclear as what is happening and what would happen further. Most of the families had moved,since it is school closure timing.Lil one enjoyed so much with both us stationed in home for full time,she loved it.On  last Wednesday morning two tanks were just beside my kitchen window,and i felt very odd and scary about it,what if they start firing and by mistake if it hits on our side? 🙂 🙂

All in all,this is a very different experience for all of us here,but not a very pleasant one.

Luckily we are placed in a bit safe location,friends in central Manama and other areas,  were extremely scared.A colleague of mine who is travelling for good from Bahrain,immediately moved to our place just for safety.So far i have not thought about leaving immediately,but we are prepared for a travel anytime.

We are safe and almost living a normal life except that we can’t move around much as earlier for safety reasons and because of curfew.But the state looks to me like a volcano,the anger mounting and aggravating among those suppressed and police and army takes care of suppressing further.But no one cannot live for long under the state of emergency,there needs to be a place for dialogue,things to settle in,people get their reform and peace should pitch in.

Am very much eager to see this country back to normal and wonderful state.Let god show some grace.And i will not bore you all again by posting such things.

Bahrain king had declared state of emergency for three months to maintain law and order in this tiny island with the help of peninsula shield troops from GCC.

Not sure as how days will progress,at the height of confusion now.Lot of families in my apartment complex are leaving to India, men staying behind.Till this moment i have not considered leaving to India,but wondering how life will be under martial law. Considering the loss of life in both the ends,mind is confused if it is a civil war. Media weaving stories as war between Iran and Saudi and US,everyone has interest in this little island kingdom.

US embassy had advised their citizens here to consider coming back,filipino embassy also urges the same.Long silence from Indian embassy,except that nirupama rao says ” India is watching the situation closely”, what are they watching? But out of 11 lakh population here Indians stand at a good number of 4 lakhs,evacuation or otherwise should be a massive attempt,considering Indian embassy dont even have the right number of indians here.Lot of illegals,free visas,non renewed free visas,boy its tough.

Expats,mainly pakistanis are taken hostage by protesters as the media claims.So far a pakistani and Bangladeshi had lost life,RIP to all those bloodshed.We are not anyway setting foot out and almost paralysed.

Praying to god is the only thing comes to mind. Let the almighty bring peace to all of them here.

Help us,all of us,Please.Good,bad,evil,gracious,benevolent,malignant all of us.

Japan is an extreme disaster,could not even digest at all.It is high time we respect mother nature to save this planet earth.

And here again in Bahrain,agitation surfaces up this time in an unagreeable way.University students attacked,trying to capture Bahrain financial harbour and all that absolutely disheartening.My office just across BFH has been closed until further notice.Ambuli school had sent text that they are closed for tomorrow.It took 2 hrs for DD to reach office today,but they closed early afternoon.A rumour that JP morgan is closing its business units here and moving to UAE.Economy seriously in bad shape with Hotel business and shopping malls at enormous loss.

Here just across my home on the bridge connecting Manama,a police checkpoint was erected in evening and confirmed a riot in neighbourhood.Friends across various location confirm us that,they see people carrying swords,its extremely scary.For almost a month now,the situation was thawing,and now again back to square one,even worse this time.God pls help all of us.
