In these threads of silk are wound
Emotions deep; promises profound
Immortal love – selfless and blind
Hope and belief, so hard to find
Drenched in memories, these threads do say
The tales of celebrations; joy and dismay
Those relentless quarrels, the unending talks
The mischievous pranks and never-ending walks
The smile that hides thousands of words
The same old jokes and the games absurd
These strings do fight a battle with time
To preserve these memories in form of a rhyme
Patiently they wait, as they wait for long
Carrying priceless memories and a belief strong
Years do pass, but the hope does persist
That one day they would adorn a brother’s wrist.

Aww such a cute thing you have written….Really love the idea of starting with threads and exploring all the feelings and emotions how you reached Rakhi 😉 Love it…So beautiful !
I haven’t been able to understand my Rakhi gift yet 😛 You know I am a psycho 😛 The truth is I never got time…..Was so busy…. I would send you a reply as soon as I explore it !
August 22, 2013 at 7:03 am
🙂 Thank you… You know a very dear friend of mine said after reading the poem that now he realises that I am emotional… 😉 I am still trying to figure out the origins of this statement…
I understand… Final year is really a busy year… And now I can feel it staring upon me too 😛 And not able to understand the gift might not be your fault… People say that sometimes my writings are too complicated to understand… Even then… take time from your busy very very schedule and take a closer look.
And now I understand… You are not a psycho… you are a pendulum 😛 (But believe me you are not that too…) 😉
August 23, 2013 at 3:13 am
Lol yes you are definitely emotional…. I a confused why he said that 😉
Oh yes it is damn busy….. Not like I am doing the study stuff all day but you know routine is disturbed somehow and I am not able to give that much time to blog to answer all the comments and write…I guess I will get used to it.
I would sure understand it I guess and will tell you and answer the letter too then….Just apologizing already for being late….
Lol I am a psycho a pendulum and Rapunzel too now 😀
August 23, 2013 at 8:21 am
Oh! am I? Then I understand why he said it so… 😉 (The masks are very efficient :))
I understand… Applications, Placements, etc etc right? No prob… Write less, Write wonderful (That you already do)
Regarding the letter… Take your time… But reply for sure… 🙂
August 24, 2013 at 12:55 am
So you wear a mask to hide your emotions ? Nice nice 😉 Mind telling me the reason for it ? 😛
Yes presentations workshops and assessments too !
Well thank you thank you aham aham 😛 No really thank you 🙂
I will for sure….hundred percent…Don’t worry 😉
August 24, 2013 at 7:02 am
Reason for wearing mask? Complicated but let me try…
The mask I wear is of a special kind… It seems different to different people depending upon how close they are to me. It has showcased myself in various forms in the hostel.
The real me is known to my very very small circle of friends. The reason… I don’t feel that everyone is ready to meet the real me ;). I have realised that I am too complicated to be understood by all 😛 So I present myself in a form that would be understood by the person in front of me ;). Saves time and energy 🙂
Other than that… No other reason… I have nothing to hide (seemingly)… Anyone who understands me enough gets rid of the mask 🙂
August 25, 2013 at 4:52 pm
Lol Oh then you want to say you are very much intellectual than the normal people and you wear mask so that normal people could be able to understand you…. 🙂 Quite impressive and I guess you are right…I have not seen such an intellect in this small age….. You are definitely something out of the world 😉 😉
Lol start using time and energy now It would be much better I guess 😉
Ohkaay I will wait for the day when I will get rid of your mask 😉 xx
August 25, 2013 at 5:03 pm
Oh my god! It is not my claim that I am more intellectual. The point is there was a time when I didn’t wear one and many people called me awkward…
Then I had to convince them that I am not so… That is a tedious task. So I wore this mask.
Again… I don’t seem to make sense; so better understand me and you would understand my mask 🙂 😉
You are close… Keep trying! 😛
August 25, 2013 at 5:55 pm
Hahaha I wish I could see your face while you said OH MY GOD 😀 lol
You know what I said is right….. People most of the time call intellectual people as awkward because they don’t understand what is the meaning of what he says 🙂
I would try to understand you… I am trying 😉

Deep, beautiful and oddly romantic at the same time.
Have a great weekend. Hugs form OZ. Paula xxx
August 23, 2013 at 3:39 pm
Romantic? but it was not intended to be…
Actually it was intended to show the feeling of Rakhi.
You know about that?
August 24, 2013 at 1:04 pm
No, what is that? Hugs xx
August 24, 2013 at 1:29 pm
Rakhi or more formally ‘Rakshabandhan’ is a festival to showcase the love between brother and sister.
On the day of Rakshabandhan, sisters tie a highly decorated thread (traditionally made of silk) called Rakhi on their brothers’ wrist and pray for their long life. Brothers in turn give their sisters gifts and pledge to protect their sisters.
It is an intimate feeling for both of them… This poem is written on the Rakshabandhan day… 🙂
August 24, 2013 at 4:27 pm
How incredibly beautiful!!
See it felt romantic…Even though it was about your sister. You wrote beautifully!! Nite from OZ. Paula xx
August 24, 2013 at 7:18 pm
Thank you very much! 🙂
And you know what’s more weird?… I don’t have a sister 😉 )I am a lone child)
August 25, 2013 at 5:43 am
Well, if you had she would have been loved greatly! 🙂 xx
August 25, 2013 at 6:27 am
Thanks a lot!
August 25, 2013 at 6:08 pm
What about me ? 😦
August 25, 2013 at 6:20 pm
I take back my words… 🙂
What I meant is I see all those rakhis on my table and imagine a day when a sister would tie them to me… That day is still awaited…
I sort of makes me sad to see people around me wearing Rakhis…
August 25, 2013 at 7:25 pm
Oh I can understand …. don’t worry computer ka dour hai you can tie rakhi on my hand on computer 😉 Real me b mil jaay gi behn don’t worry 🙂 Socho ager behn hoti tu itni laraeyaan kerti k tum itnay baray intellect ban he na paatay 😀
August 25, 2013 at 9:51 pm
Correction… you have to tie Rakhi on my hand, not the other way round 😉
Kyun? tere saath larai kar ke hi to main ‘so called intellect’ ban paaya hoon… 🙂
August 26, 2013 at 2:25 pm
Ooopss sorry 😛 My mistake !
Hahaha haan ye b hai….. Mene b bara kuch seekha hai tumaray sath laraeyan ker ker k 😛
August 26, 2013 at 2:32 pm
Thanks! I take that as a compliment 🙂
August 26, 2013 at 3:11 pm
You better should 😉 😛

This is beautiful, Arindam!! The poem itself is mind-blowing! And that colorful pic has added more vibrancy to it!
