Wheres ur spine?.

Did you read this article on TOI - Bangalore edition? This was the culmination(or is it the beginning) of the Spine poetry group I spoke of here.....



A weekend thts full of books, food, Friends ought to be fun! But wht took the enjoyment to all together another level(for me) was this event saw so many people living their dreams(or atleast getting a step closer) ......

From a friend who went a step closer in realizing her dream of owning a book-shop someday (Volunteering for the event involved arranging n re-arranging the books) - The sigh of satisfaction on her face was priceless!

.....To a friend who took the first concrete step in setting up her own baking business one day - all the oohs n aahs the cakes-cutlets enthused is all the encouragement she needed(or so I think :-))

....To hubs, who gets a kick out of feeding people n having them relish it!

....To husbands who surprisingly rallied around to understand their wife's aspirations

N most of all to dearest Sabs who almost single-handedly conceptualized n implemented this entire event!!! N i truly hope that this event is jus the first of many she will go onto do in future...

Maybe my spine lies not in these poems, not in this job - but maybe in these people n books who see you thru this messy business of life :-)

PS: I hv been trying to write this post now for a few days with no Luck! It was sabs who once again came to my rescue with her idea of bringing in the "friends n dreams" angle to this post :-)

  1. Well, dreamers need someone who is down to earth, practical, pragmatic, no nonsense and more than anything else, a true friend who will push us when the time comes right and pull us back when we'd rather jump ahead.
    You are such a friend to so many of us, Meena! And it was really really nice to see so many of the dreamers coming together.
    You are the hub of us spokes and what a ride this wheel had! Thank you so much!
    Here is to many more!
