Life – Living


Life

The clock is ticking away

The seconds of living

We have only one life

A life to live, love, be, die

How many deaths

In a life do we live

How many heart stopping

Stomach curdling

Blood freezing moments

When we stop living

Until that final breath

Is drawn and exhaled

But not breathed in again

When we totally stop

About padmum

You could call me Dame Quixote! I tilt at windmills. I have an opinion on most matters. What I don't have, my husband Raju has in plenty. Writer and story teller, columnist and contributer of articles, blogs, poems, travelogues and essays to Chennai newspapers, national magazines and websites, I review and edit books for publishers and have specialized as a Culinary Editor and contributed content, edited and collaborated on Cookbooks. My other major interest is acting on Tamil and English stage, Indian cinema and TV. I am a wordsmith, a voracious reader, crossword buff and write about India's heritage, culture and traditions. I am interested in Vedanta nowadays.
