13th Zodiac sign!!


13th Zodiac sign : Ophiuchus

I don’t know how many of you know about this, but while surfing today I just came across this, Till now I had believed we have 12 zodiac signs… but on Jan 2011 a new Zodiac sign was introduced : Ophiuchus!! How do you pronounce that huh?? :roll:
So now the new zodiac dates are as below:

Capricorn: Jan. 20-Feb. 16.
Aquarius: Feb. 16-March 11.
Pisces: March 11-April 18.
Aries: April 18-May 13.
Taurus: May 13-June 21.
Gemini: June 21-July 20.
Cancer: July 20-Aug. 10.
Leo: Aug. 10-Sept. 16.
Virgo: Sept. 16-Oct. 30.
Libra: Oct. 30-Nov. 23.
Scorpio: Nov. 23-29.
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29-Dec. 17.
Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20.

I was so proud till yest about being a leo… but now I discovered that I’m not a leo?? Huh?? ?what are you saying ?? I loved my zodiac and now… Nooooooooo…. All my near and dear ones signs have changed!!!

Im not a very strong believer in astrology but I love to read my horoscope daily… But I never noticed they have introduced this new sign!! In newspapers and all they still show readings for only 12 signs.. ?? why?? I think they might have not yet come to final decision to include this sign or not… umm.. ?? :think: May be…
This is the symbol of new sign :



Some personality traits of this sign:
  * A flamboyant dressing sense, favouring bright colours.
    * Authority looks upon him/her well
    * Would make a great architect or builder
    * Number 12 is the lucky number.
    * Will have a big family but will leave home at an early age

However, not everybody is buying the argument. We've known about this for ages. The constellations don't suggest what's coming up, it's the planets! The constellations are a measuring device, another astrologer Susan Miller is quoted to have told ABC News. She said over period the original number of 50 constellations were brought down to 18 and later to 12 as they are now. The insertion of a new sign would mean reversal of the entire process.
I’m in a shock!!! Though I take the readings lightly, I love reading them and now suddenly I’m not a Leo… I’m a Cancer!!!

Fishy Affair...

20th june was one of the happiest day in my life when I brought 3 new family members in my home,
Snowy, Goldie and Blakie they were 3 little cute cute fish,
I was filled with an unknown happiness when I took them with me! whole time, while I was travelling, I was so worried for their safety, the shopkeeper had given them to me in a carry bag that carried water. I was so tensed and weird thoughts like if the carry bag tears in middle and water spills then how will I save their life were coming to my mind,
It was a great feeling of handling a life, caring for them who cannot speak and watching them play with each other.

This weekend I did nothing but watched them play and wondered wont they get tired swimming all the day?
Goldie was a gold fish with golden color as you might have guessed it by now and the most mischivious. Blakie and Snowy was a pair of kind called Angel Fish and Goldie would be jealous I think if they two would get together, he would go and disturb them.. :)

I would love to watch their fights, Blakie was kind of silent and Snowy was in between he was handling blakie and Goldie together.. :) SO he was the master I guess...

You might be wondering why Im writting was was... everywhere...
You know what, yesterday when I went home OMG I just could not beleive they were dead... Goldie's body was floating on the water!! for some time I just could not understand what happened... then I saw only snowy was swmming, I could not see Blakie... then I saw him laying in the bottom.. he too was dead...

OHh God... I just cant expalin what pain it created to see them dead... I cried and I was in a shock... I was just not knowing what I should do now? I sat there for a while, Goldie's stomach was swollen I think he ate too much, dont know. Or did they fight between? I was trying to visualize what could have happened. Did I not care properly for them.. but I followed all teh instructions teh shopkeeper gave... I waited there in silence, usually I will go and put on the TV first as that is the time I reach when my fav show starts, but yesterday the sight was so disturbing I just could not move... I was so hungry but I did not feel like eating anything.

Snowy was from the Angel pair and the shopkeeper had persuaded me to buy them as pair as he said they wont live single... Ohh God I was so worried that how Snowy will be handling this. They cant speak na.. after some time I saw snowy was swimming in a weird way, he was doing as if he is drowning... ohh God I panicked... I thought may be he is not getting oxygen... I rushed and in a bucket brought some water... by that time Snowy was lying at the bottom next to Blakie.. I was completely lost, I thought I just lost him, I bent and took a closer look ... no he was breathing... I was filled with joy... I took the net and pulled him out of the glass bowl and put him in fresh water... but he didn't swim... but I saw he was breathing... he was lying at the bottom... I just prayed to god to save him. I dont know what happened in my absence...

After a while I saw him swimming in the bucket.... I cannot tell you how happy I was... how thankfull I was to god for saving him and how proud I felt of myself for saving a life...

Finally with mixed feeling of sadness and joy I went to sleep... but today morning I saw Snowy was laying dead in the bowl.... ??? what why how... ??? I think he could not live single... He could not bear the pain of seperation from blakie.... Such pure love na... I have heard even love birds wont live single, If one of them dies teh other too dies... :( :( Im very Sad!!!

I dont know where their souls are now but just in 5 days I was so attached with them...
Wherevere you might be, Be happy dear!!! Thanks for your company of the shhort period!!!

Budding Love #9


It was raining heavily, after spending an extra hour in the traffic jam she finally reached home. There we no lights in the area, with help of her mobile light she searched for keys in her purse,  “Hushhhhh” she signed as she threw herself on the couch. It was such a tiring day. She was thirsty but her feet were too tired to reach the fridge. She sat there for couple of minutes closing her eyes, the tiredness had taken over her she could just fall asleep then and there but she knew there were lot of things waiting for her attention.
She fiddled in the darkness to reach to the emergency light, in that dim light the shadows created a horror movie set and she was terrified to move but gathering herself she took the emergency with her to the kitchen. There were no people on their floor everybody was on vacation, “Damn IT, I just hate it we can never be on a vacation” she grumbled. She scanned the fridge and one by one took things she needed. It seems there is some serious problem with electric department, usually in their area the lights won’t go for more than 10 min. She chopped the vegetables and started preparing for supper. At back of her mind she was thinking of him, she knew he will too get late home today, the traffic was very slow that day. She went in the balcony to get the clothes, while the curry was getting prepared she was doing other household chores, they kept her busy esp. her mind, the darkness would otherwise had scared her. She completed all the chores the clock showed 9:00 pm; she thought to herself, she has just finished in time he will be home anytime. She went and relaxed a bit on the couch. In some time the lights came. She took the remote and switched on the TV, the silence was killing her, after a while she got and went to get fresh. After the hot bath she felt good.  She looked at the clock, 9:30 pm, hmm its taking him long she thought, “let me call and ask where he reached” she thought to herself as she dialed his number. “The number you have dialed is not answering any calls at this time” She kept the mobile aside and got busy getting ready for dinner. After couple of min she again dialed his number, same reply… she went and sat in front of the idiot box switching channels while nothing caught her attention she was absent mindedly changing channels, thinking how long he will take… hunger had started taking over.
She looked at the clock 10:00 pm it showed, this was getting on her nerve now, at click of every sec tension was mounting, weird thoughts started coming to her mind. The tension was mounting and unknowingly she had started thinking of ways to reach him. There was no one on the floor whom she could go for help, she did not carry any of his colleagues number, “Have he lost his mobile? Why is he not answering the calls? Is he all right?” All kind of thoughts started running and scaring the hell out of her. At a moment tension reached a peak and she started crying. Not knowing what should she do, should I call mom and dad? They stay far away troubling them at this hour? Will it be fine? She just wanted to close her eyes and when she opens them she wanted to find him standing in front of her. Her heart was racing with time. She felt as if she will suffer a heart attack. Just then she heard jiggling of keys, she rushed to the door and opened it and as she saw him standing in front of her she just burst and shouted at him for not answering her call calling him irresponsible and blaming him for every sin on earth. He just kept quiet and entered. She too just dropped on the couch, he went in and got fresh, after a while she got the dinner table ready, He came back and sat, she did not look at him, she served him and started eating, He sensed it through her behavior that she was very angry with him and without making any attempt to console her he too ate in silence. After dinner she cleared the table and cleaned the kitchen counter. After setting everything to its place she went to sleep, leaving him with TV. At around 11:50 he came to the room, as soon as he got into the bed he heard her, “We need to talk”
Knowing what’s coming his way he stood there still ready for the let’s talk activity which would more be a listening activity for him.
“How can you be so irresponsible? Why didn’t you answer my calls? You know how worried I was? I thought you would come early today as you drove to office, You didn’t even bother to call me back? Do you know how difficult it was for me to sit here all alone wondering what should I do next? If you would have not come in next 15 min you would have seen me laying there with a heart attack due to tension you caused me.” He sat there silent, “What I expect some answer.. are you listening?” he was listening to her he nodded and looked at his watch, took her hand in both his hands and with care he kissed it with care bringing all his emotion to life he said, “Happy Birthday!! I love you !!” and handed the little box he carried with him to her, for a moment she forgot everything, she was so touched with his gesture, she opened it and a sweet diamond ring was gleaming back at her . “Wow!!” she exclaimed. Lost in it for a couple of min. He remembered her Bday and that was more than anything for her, she just forgot all the grudges… “ohh…Dear there was no need of getting late for this…  ” he just raised his eyebrows, “Ok then let me return it back” he said grabbing the ring back, observing the disappointment appearing on her face, he pulled the ring out of the box and taking her hand in his slide the ring in her finger, her face was glowing with happiness she kissed his hand and then the ring… she kept her head on his shoulder and they both kept admiring the beauty, she of the ring and he, her glowing face with happiness.

Budding Love #8



He was in the office, busy with the code that needed to be delivered today; hardly had he got up from his seat. The promise he made her was still in his mind, he had to be home early. He tried to finish his work as quickly as possible. He was working on the last task, writing a formal communication to the onsite coordinator informing the deliverables are ready and steps to execute them. As he rechecked his mail with great satisfaction he pressed the send button. It was 5:45 pm; he hurried to catch his 6:00 pm bus. As he got out of the office he noticed the atmosphere, it was cool and it had started raining, rains are just perfect it was not too heavy, perfect enough to set the mood! He enjoyed his stroll till the bus stop. As he took a window seat he looked around, there were some people running here and there to save themselves from getting wet. He looked at the other side of the road, there was a group of children playing in the pool of water that was formed along the road side, and they were happily jumping in the pool and enjoying the drizzle. He wished he too could just go there and enjoy with them, he too wanted to relive his childhood moments. There was so much happiness on their faces. He was lost in his thoughts when the bus started picking up speed. The green trees looked like they just got their color; scent of the soil that he inhaled brought a new freshness in him. He was enjoying nature at its best and had forgotten all the office worries, the hectic day he had spent to meet the deadlines, everything was gone, he was fresh, it started getting dark.

Soon he fell asleep feeling the cool wind. He woke up by a screeching sound that the sudden application of brakes created. He was baffled and wondered what happened for some time, regaining he understood, “This rainy season brings lot of accidents too with it” he pondered as he looked out through the window. “Ohh my stop is nearing” he thought, he got ready. To arrive at his stop the bus had to take a U- turn, He was sitting at the right hand side window seat, the bus stop at the other side of the road was visible, he could see her, she was standing by the bus stop shade in the crowd at the bus stop. Part of the crowd but still so distinct that she always managed to get his attention, He daily longed for this view, Today as his bus was approaching the bus stop he saw her, she was wearing a light yellow Punjabi suit, she might have not been prepared for rains so he could make out as she was wet. She was shivering, she tugged her hair at the back of her ear and continued to wait, water drizzling from her half wet hair, She was holding the folder she carried close to her heart. As the bus took a U turn, he got up and went to the door making sure he does not miss any moment, as he came to the door her eyes caught him, She too kept looking at him, they had an eye contact till the bus took the U turn and stopped at the stop.

As he got down from the bus he opened his umbrella, they were still looking at each other. He went close to her and offered her his umbrella; she politely denied and started walking. He followed her pursuing her to accept his offer,

“You might catch hold” he added to make his argument strong.

“No, I won’t, It’s not raining heavily so I can reach home safely.”

“But you need to be prepared for rains you see, falling sick these days, you cannot afford.. ” He tried to catch up with her speed.

“Yes, I will be.. ” She assured, increasing her pace.

“So are you sure you don’t want the umbrella?” To which she just nodded and kept walking.

In a sudden gush of wind the umbrella swept from his hands and it was swept far away within few seconds. He just shrugged and ran to catch up with her. As she looked at him she enquired, “Where is your umbrella?”

“Ohh it got carried away in the wind… ” She gave him suspicious looks questioning “Really?”

“Ohh yes, really, I don’t want to get sick… ” he answered her question.

“I know all your tricks boy.. ”

“Ohh really?”

“I know all this is for a cup of coffee… ”

“No no… not really, seriously… ” He told her nodding. In no time it started raining heavily, he ran to take shelter under a shop roof, and reaching there he saw she was still walking, he signaled her to run and be quick, but she was enjoying the rain. She even walked slowly. He just kept looking at her happy face, water drops dripping over her face. Soon he joined her too and they were playing as the kids he saw earlier on the roadside, no worries, no tension, just living for the moment. Soon they realized people giving them HAVE YOU GONE CRAZY looks, they regained themselves and soon started walking towards the home. As they reached, she got the keys and opened the door, he followed her and they settled down..

She brought him a Kurta pyjama and asked him to get comfortable while she prepared the coffee. As she came with the coffee she handed one cup to him and sipped the coffee from her cup,

“Even if you would have not got wet, I would have prepared the coffee for you… ” She assured. “You don’t need to get wet daily in these rains now for the cup of coffee”

“Ohh GOD seriously, you think I get wet for this cup of coffee? ? ” She just nodded in affirmation… “You are mad, today I got wet just to get my hair dried from you” he said sarcastically handling her the towel… “Otherwise no one cares for this kid you know” he said trying to be childish as he kept his head in her lap. Without saying a word she smiled to herself and started drying his hair… “Rainy seasons are always so romantic. Rains though bring discomfort, they are enjoyable. They make us feel nostalgic!! May it be the childhood memories or the memory of your first love. Even today I remember the first day when we walked in that single umbrella, both were half wet from the other side. Just because you did not want to carry an umbrella all day and you barged in my umbrella…. That day is still so fresh.”

“But now I carry mine and you don’t like to carry yours, See I have changed Im a good boy now, but You have become a bad girl.”

“Umm seriously, you feel I’m a bad girl? If I carry mine how will you care for me?? How will you run behind me carrying the umbrella asking me to join you? How will we relive the first walk we had in a single umbrella huh? ”

“Ohh, so all this for… ” She blinked naughtily and they sipped coffee looking into each other, lost in their world.
