Holding on all that can't be left behind...

Its really weird how you lose contact with people who had always been around you for a significant length of time in your life. They would sometimes flash in mind when coming across a place or situation that was shared or spent with them at one point of time. Be your best friends, family friends or neighbours...etc. are almost.. the constantly changing elements of life, whether you like it or not.

How did I come about blogging this? The present few months can be tagged for birthdays in my calender. So many birthdays!! All of them are of my closest friends. And thinking about my birthday, it feels very strange that every year, at my birthday, either there would be some new comers or missing ones. I give a huge importance to friends in my life and I continuously realise that at several points. Whether they keep in touch or not, whether they forget to wish me a special greeting or not, I will do what I have to do as a friend. I also keep a lot of things that had been gifted to me for as long as I can, be it a book or a keyring. And there are times when I get scolded by mum and friends that I keep a collection of lots of rubbish. I always see them as treasures. I go through them when I feel like to, and remember all my friends, and its nice to do that once in a while when you are in a fast and hectic life. Trust me or not I still have contacts with my friends from primary school. I still receive birthday cards by post every year from some friends from primary. Also I am very lucky that my friends from my secondary schools and Sixth form are with me in the same Uni now.

However, if you are in touch with one there would be ten who you have lost contact with. I wonder how we lose touch. Without realising really. They were around you all the time, and then suddenly, you lose contact. New faces come in. And then you move on to the next phase of life, and it goes on like that. I suppose there is a time in everyone's life when certain things have to be moved or replaced ..... without choices.
Pondering on this, I have my friend in her final year of Uni., graduating in 2009. She will go back to home, which is 2 streets away from mine. But I will be stuck in where I am for uncertain number of years. She has been around for more than 6 years now..and I wonder if this number will grow even longer or what. But definitely, as who I am, I will always keep my dearest ones in my mind. No one will be replaced or forgotten. Even my blogger friends. Whoever you are reading this, here is wishing you that you may not get a situation where you/your friends have to leave you, and may you have lots of friends who would always be there with you at every special moments of yours. All your life.

Life has to go on...when you grow older and older you sometimes lose the closeness you had before with your family. I think it is nearly the same case with friends.

But saranya..remember.. Whatever happens.. I will never forget you and you are always my BEST FRIEND:)

such a touching post. I always valued friendship and friends, which are difficult to get these days.
Change, as you mentioned, is inevitable. In the long run, it's normal that we forget someone, lose contact or simply don't know what happened.
I too have lot of nostalgic things.. I don't know how long i'll hold on to it..but as long as I can, I will.
Here's wishing you to have your friends near you all the time..

Sevva Thosham and Science

At home! Had a good day today. Went to the Shiva Temple as it was PradoshaViradham today. Apparently, it was yesterday in London and today in SriLanka. I had no idea why and when people fast for Pradosham. I only had a slightest idea that it is something like Ekadasi. I got a good opportunity to talk to the priest there about religion, which is quite rare and unusual! I always get questions of why, what and how. And it was a time for me to ask some of the Whys I had in my mind though not everything. It is really amazing how science overlaps religion (in general). There is always a strong scientific aspect behind every feature of Hinduism. It was a delight to sit and listen to the priest about the religion and its science.

One of the interesting things I got to know was about the SevvaiThosham. I did not know much about SevvaThosham before as there was never a talk about it in my family. As the priest explained, a girl with SevvaiThosham should marry a man with the same thosham. And tha…

Female feticide and Sex ratio in India - BMJ

While leafing through the BMJ magazine; June, a letter on one of the articles of sBMJ May urged me to find the May issue and read it. It was about the unwelcome sex in India. I have heard about the high occurrence of female feticide in India but happening to hear a lot in the recent days on magazines and blogs.

The article touched on the dangerous traditions in India which favour for the birth of a boy than girl as boys are cheaper because of the dowry system. The high social and economic value of men is the causation for sex selective abortions in India. Though the dowry payments are illegal, it is accepted as a tradition to continue their family hierarchy and this phenomena is deeply rooted in the societies. Although is illegal to do a prenatal examinations to identify the sex of a fetus is illegal in India, if the families once known it is a girl, the fetus is terminated. According to the article, evidently there were about 5 million female fetuses are aborted every year purely on …

What Saranya means?

Does any of you believe in these kind of quizzes and answers? Stumbled on this site while googling for something else....Though I don't take these serious or believe them, just reading them is often fun :)

What Saranya MeansYou are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the wo…
