Happy Birthday KK!

Posted: October 29, 2012 in Birthdays

Wanted to write something new for KK’s birthday. I had written this post below 2 years back. Its so true till date to the dot that I am re posting it… 🙂

————————————————————————————————

Its KK’s B’day today!! Who’s that?

My bestest friend till this moment and will be…

Is is said – “Great things come in small packages”. KK aka Karpagavalli Krishnamurthy would perfectly fit the bill. A five foot something…an angel to say the least. A pillar of strength for me since my first S+ course(Yeah, that how she cutely pronounces it ;) ). So much care and concern she has poured on me to make me what I am today.  I am a zillion % sure that Guruji has planted her in my life for my growth alone…nothing else. From those days where she used to persuade me to come to the ashram; I remember those parking lots/roads where I waited for no end to pick her coz she always had something up her sleeve and the guru stories, bnd stories etc on the way to ashram and back  would make up for the wait :) :) .

I remember our fights when I used to tell a ‘No’ for almost everything.  Believe me she never took ‘No’ as an answer from me for anything especially pertaining to courses and Guruji :) . How patiently she has put up with my tantrums and genuine excuses. With her my ego has been washed, crushed and demolished to a great extent. There have been days where I have completely hated her and also felt deep gratitude.

Oops…! Why am I talking about myself? :)  Her ‘Never Give Up’ attitude is something to die for. Even today when I put up the white flag when water reaches the nose, shes there to pull me up! There is so much more to her…words cannot do complete justice. Believe me!  You have to meet her!

KKAn icon of commitment!

A perfect south Indian Tamil Iyer to the core, cooks amazing rasam and potato curry. Yet to taste the other dishes though. :) . KK, let me know ;) .  Awesomely sweet person to be with. Just feel at home when she’s around. Recently she got married to Prasanna(of Marlon Brando fame! ;) ) and is on the next phase of life altogether…

I usually joke that I must have have been the easiest for her to register coz she just asked me to do it and I agreed right away( till today i donno why?!!). Recently she confessed that she was planning to quit BOSCH(where we were working) beginning of 2008. OMG…! Really KK, had you quit, where would have i been…

With tons of love and bestest wishes!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Vinod!

Posted: June 5, 2012 in Birthdays

Vinod, a few lines about how your existence had made a difference to people around you.

You entered the scene,
when I was out.
To make a difference,
goes beyond doubt.
The presence and smile,
energises us.
Your ‘brilliant’ statements,
lead to an awakening.
A patient listener to the core,
your jokes have me rolling on the floor.
Vinod

Vinod

From just another guy,
you have become a fine wise man.
Inspiring us,
with all the might u can.
 –
Sharing the dias with u,
is always a pleasure.
The joy I experience,
is just beyond measure.
 –
An attitude of ‘Never say NO’,
makes us all go ‘Gung Ho’!
You are the man,
our YES!+ man!
 –
!Happy Birthday!
-Love,
Suman.

Happiieee Birthdaaay Vini…

My birthday

Posted: February 14, 2012 in Birthdays, Poems

Wishes pouring in since the previous night

via (i)phone, Fb, messages and skype,

I woke up to this day,

my birthday!

Golden rays of the sun,

blessing my friend fine.

walking into holy matrimony,

with the nephew of the divine.

I told the divine of this day,

a twinkle in his eye was all did he say.

As our eyes met and froze,

Smiling, he handed me a rose.

A few oblivious of the day,

greeting me with a sorry smile.

Being loved surpasses the wishes,

was I reminded in a while.

Chocolate makeup 🙂

Amidst chants of  “Sagar mein ek leher…”

cutting a cake in middle of commercial street,

Thanks to Hema di,

made my heart go happy with glee :).

Dancing to the tunes of Jai ho,

announcing the arrival of the divine.

Biting into the pizza @ Sbarro,

made way for a fine dine.

KK behind the wheel,

we inched back home.

Saying YES! to any challenge I realized,

is the secret of some.

Today is the day,

that I will remember.

When everyone made me feel

as their very own. 🙂

Thank you for all your wishes!

Love,

Suman.

Hey Vini!

Its your birthday! 🙂

Thought of sending a online birthday card but thats too boring and so much like the 2000’s :).

Write a few poetic lines? Donno it didnt come up this time around…:(

So now…how do I wish you? 1000’s of miles away!

How do I express my happiness? Always difficult for people who are close…

How do I celebrate your presence? In your absence…

A few words…

Like a crash course, in such a short time you have become the closest…

feels now like I have known u for ages.

An awesomely absolutely comfortable person to be with, effortlessness…

And a smile! 🙂 for which to match I need effort.

You are like…hmmm…like sugar in milk dissolving with anyone around you…and make them feel your own.

Yogi like maturity and childlike innocence – a potent combo just ooze…

A problem buster with the kind of confidence you enthuse!

Very deep yet playful, crazy yet prayerful…Gurudev ka ansh hai tu.

Vini

Beyond doubt a Meow teacher of course 🙂

Capturing the young hearts @ Yenepoya to teenaged hearts in Mangalore…from ‘Many’pal to…

You flew across the oceans for the one who captured yours…

He who set the bar for ‘welcoming’ and is of course ‘working from home’ 😉 (Pun intended)

Go Go…Oh! There you are already…

Tickle the consciousness and light the lamp of enlightenment in all in ‘Chik’ – ‘a’ – ‘Go’ 🙂

But wait!

All said n done…Vini, Yaar nee?

I know you are also thinking of the same…But as Guruji says…its a good question to be with…

So don’t be in a hurry to find the answer 😉

Barrels of blessing coming ur way…catch ’em…hold ’em…

!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!

Love,

Suman.

PS – Pretty much excited to know more about her? Clik – Vini

Without you where will I be…

Mangoo and Piddu’s B’day

Posted: April 16, 2010 in Birthdays

It was Mangesh’s birthday yesterday(14th April) and Uddip’s today(15th April).  As we could not celebrate yesterday, we decided to give both of them a surprise.  We invited both telling them about the other person’s birthday party. 🙂

We had ordered a mouth watering chocolate “eggless cake” from Sweet Chariot Cafe  (Yes! they do prepare them and its good. So next time go and ask for one!), magic candles and Happy Birthday hats too… If you don’t know what magic candles are; buy them for the next party and believe me the person will have a tough time blowing it OFF! 🙂 🙂

Ok now I will let the pictures do the talking. 🙂
