Tom and Jenny ~ Love Story Part 3!

Read Part 1 and Part 2

The Story of Tom and Jenny is thickening!...

Life is beautiful,
Life is beautiful.
I have no worry, no care!
I love to play in bubbles
Tub full of bubbles flowing away!

To spread a bed in warm warm sun,
With cool breeze blowing by!
In the wild wild blues and green of trees

I ran around, going a merry go round!
Oh! Whats that??...a placard of warning!
Ah! What do I care, I have no fear!
I wander carefree in this beautiful world around!

Suddenly I hear! Oh whats that I fear,
Why bother, let me run as fast as I can
I can only run as fast as I can dear!


Come back next week for the next Scene!

Have a great weekend.

Tom and Jenny ~ Love Story Part 2!

This is continuation of the Part 1, read from there to get the hang...

The scene is still all about Jenny's carefree life...

Life is beautiful,
Life is so very beautiful.
I have no worry, no care!
Ah!, life is so very beautiful.
With all Rain and Sunshine!
Rain, Rain come again,
I am here to play again
In pitter patter rain drops!
Pitter patter rain drops.

I am off with a pack and shade
for my beauty sunbath,
So warm, so nice after the chill drops.
Slugging and lazing under shaded light
Basking under the glory of light!

Life is beautiful,
Life is colourful,
I am off with my palette and hue
Eager to capture life in all its
Shades of Grays and Blues!

Oh, how I wish I could hide
myself in the verses sang by lore.
Bard's couplets is enough
to get one forget. Piles on piles,
a sight to feast sore eyes and a delighted heart.


Come back next week for the next Scene!

Have a great weekend.

Tom and Jenny ~ A Love Story!

Painting has always been something that I loved to do since childhood. Though I have laid my hands on most of the styles and medium, the best I have always loved were ones done with sketch pens And I love cartoon pictures so I always end up drawing them with sketches.

Most favorite of course, is Tom & Jerry. I have spent endless time watches these legendary cartoons. My creations have revolved around these quite frequently. I did a series on these two characters sometime back. And they then went off to loft. Recently, when I happen to check on these for something else, I was so surprised that its been 10 years since I drew these. The last 10 years has brought in so much change in my life. Yet I was happy that my style had not changed much, when I wanted to recreate the same picture.

This series revolves around a theme and each picture expresses a thought with the scene. I will caption the scene with words, but I had tried hard for the picture to express the character's thought.

Will be trying to update each part every week, so keep checking for updates!

This story is titled

Tom & Jenny - A Love Story!

The first scene starts with Jenny (of course, its a female character, this being a love story gotta!)

Jenny enters the scene!

Life is beautiful,
Life is beautiful.
I have no worry, no care!
I wander lonely in the wood.
With no worry, no care!.
So happy, so happy!
Woods are green,
The sky is blue,
And everything around is so cool!

Oh what's that! a bridge!
So lovely it looks, with lush blue water
going under! I walk through the bridge
So happy, So happy!

I jump across the log
And run around the wood...
Having a great time in the wood
with nothing to do around!
I walk back way to home,
For a good night sleep at home!

Yawn!..Its another beautiful morning!
The sun is shining so fine.
The flowers are blushing and shying away!
Let me get ready, for another day
To wander happily in the woods!


Come back next week for the next Scene!

Have a great weekend.

Time is like being in a pool of water.
Can only feel it, can never hold it.
As you pave your way through waters,
Clear Crystal blue, cool air touching you by
You feel something passing you by.
Time is like that too.
Everyday in and out, makes you feel
A presence so divine. But try holding it,
You can never.
Yesterday is a dream, you dreamt.
Tomorrow is still a hope. yet to come.
Present is all we have. But its like the
Fist trying to squeeze water. Nothing
stays behind except your fist.
So take care what do you now for this
is all you with you!

There are moments in life when you miss someone

so much that you just want to pick them from

your dreams and hug them for real!

When the door of happiness closes, another opens;

But often times we look so long at the

Closed door that we don't see the one,

Which has been opened for us

Don't go for looks; they can deceive.

Don't go for wealth; even that fades away.

Go for someone who makes you smile,

Because it takes only a smile to

Make a dark day seem bright.

Find the one that makes your heart smile.

Dream what you want to dream;

Go where you want to go;

Be what you want to be,

Because you have only one life

And one chance to do all the things

You want to do.

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet

Enough trials to make you strong,

Enough sorrow to keep you human and

Enough hope to make you happy.

The happiest of people don't necessarily

Have the best of everything;

They just make the most of

Everything that comes along their way.

The brightest future will always

Be based on a forgotten past;

You can't go forward in life until

You let go of your past failures and heartaches.

When you were born, you were crying

And everyone around you was smiling.

Live your life so at the end,

You 're the one who is smiling and everyone

Around you is crying.
Don't count the years - count the memories

Long live Bachelors

Every man should get married some time; after
all,happiness is not the only thing in life !!


Bachelors should be heavily taxed. It is not fair that
some men should
be happier than others.

--Oscar Wilde

Don't marry for money; you can borrow it cheaper.

--Scottish Proverb

I don't worry about terrorism. I was married for
two years.

--Sam Kinison

( i loved this one )
Men have a better time than women; for one thing,
they marry later; for
another thing, they die earlier.
--H. L. Mencken

When a newly married couple smiles, everyone knows
When a ten-year married couple smiles, everyone
wonders why.

Love is blind but marriage is an eye-opener.

When a man opens the door of his car for his wife,
you can be sure of
one thing: either the car is new or the wife.

I take my wife everywhere, but she keeps finding
her way back to home always.


I asked my wife, "Where do you want to go for our
anniversary?" She said,"Somewhere I h! ave never
been!" I told her,
"How about the kitchen?"


We always hold hands. If I let go, she shops.

My wife was in beauty saloon for two hours.
That was only for the estimate.


She got a mudpack and looked great for two days. Then
the mud fell off.


She ran after the garbage truck, yelling, "Am I too
late for the garbage?"
Following her down the street I yelled, "No, jump in."


Badd Teddy recently explained to me why he refuses
to get to married.
He says "the wedding rings look like minature

If your dog is barking at the back door and your
wife yelling at the frontdoor, who do you let in
The Dog of course... at least he'll shut up after u
let him in!


A man placed some flowers on the grave of his dearly
parted mother and started back toward his car when his
attention was
diverted to another man kneeling at a grave. The man
seemed to be
praying with profound intensity and kept repeating,
'Why did u have to
die? Why did you have to die?" The first man
approached him and said, "Sir,
I don't wish to interfere with your private grief, but
demonstration of pain in is
more than I've ever seen before. For whom do you mourn
so? Deeply? A
child? A parent?"The mourner took a moment to collect
himself, then
replied "My wife's first husband."

A couple came upon a wishing well. The husband
leaned over, made a wish
and threw in a coin .
The wife decided to make a wish, too. But she leaned
over too much, fell
into the well, and drowned. The husband was stunned
for a while but then
smiled " It really works ! "

Life is about ...keeping cool..

This tag line makes you ponder on certain things in life and then relate to how from where you have to now...I pass by this tag line every day on my way to office. And every time I see it, something strange comes over and I feel liberated. I get to contemplate and think back on those days when being so young, we think we have so much to still to see....

While in 20, on meeting a person in their 30s, used to look upon them and think gosh they are so old...maybe in years or in their experience. Now when I am here...think back on those memories and moments and feel silly....yes.. because the feelings I have now are just the same...I have not grown old maybe in years but in thoughts and feelings, still just the same...I feel so young...maybe now when I meet people in their 40s and will think the is a circle, we come the full round and reach the same point no wiser no different no better..

Life is about ...keeping cool....

yes we face so many adversities in life...we gotta to face all of them as same ..when we think of them we feel if there was another way we could've handled it...yet there is always only one way ..the way it is destined to best is to let destiny to handle it in its way..such moments reminds me one line - 'This too shall pass'

Life comes and goes. Sorrow was here and gone... Happiness will come and may go...

When we ponder on what we have right it sorrow. or happiness..when we think on it...This too shall pass. Think of all the moments of joy and victory we had in our life. Think of that moment of sorrow and defeat we may have faced. Are they permanent? no the moment has gone and we are healed. They all come and pass away. Life just passes away...

There were friends in past.
There are friends today.
There will be new friends tomorrow.
But nobody is permanent in this life ...everybody just goes away.

There were enemies in past.
There may be enemy in present.
There will be new ones tomorrow and...yes they too will go.

There is nothing permanent in this world except change. Change is the only thing that remains true...

We have seen all the changes. survived all setbacks, all defeats and all sorrows. All have passed away. If there are problems in the present, they too will pass away. Because nothing remains forever. Joy and sorrow are the two faces of the same coin. They both will pass away.

But when we think whats reality? whats that will remain unchanged? Whats there always with us...its our true self....

Life is about....keeping true to your self...and everything will pass away...

Seasons In The Sun

Goodbye to you my trusted friend
We've known each other since we were nine or ten
Together we've climbed hills and trees
Learned of love and ABC's
Skinned our hearts and skinned our knees
Goodbye my friend it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that spring is in the air
Pretty girls are everywhere
Think of me and I'll be there

We had joy, we had fun
we had seasons in the sun
But the hills that we climbed
Were just seasons out of time

Goodbye Papa please pray for me
I was the black sheep of the family
You tried to teach me right from wrong
Too much wine and too much song
Wonder how I got along
Goodbye Papa it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that the spring is in the air
Little children everywhere
When you see them, I'll be there

We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song
Like the seasons have all gone
We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song
Like the seasons have all gone

Goodbye Michelle my little one
You gave me love and helped me find the sun
And every time that I was down
You would always come around
And get my feet back on the ground
Goodbye Michelle it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that the spring is in the air
With the flowers everywhere
I wish that we could both be there

my thoughts

"Sometimes love is for a moment, sometimes love is for a lifetime.
Sometimes a moment is a lifetime."

"Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps a singing bird will come."

"It is better to die with memories than to live with only dreams."

pursuit of Happiness

I read this article in the newspaper early this morning, and led to ponder on this statement that often gets me going. Its an article by Bishwanath Ghosh. Very well written one on an elusive entity that eludes all us.

He says he read a cover story which ran, "In search of Happiness." And wondered that we are still searching for it--- a tiny, little commodity that is within our arm's length, even though we have successfully searched for everything searchable on this planet.

Why does happiness elude us? That's because that's how it is meant to be. He gives a realistic example of how and why this eludes....

This article reminded me of the movie that was released recently. Will smith's "The Pursuit of Happyness". I happened to see the trailer and was really impressed by it. It makes us wonder if everybody in this world are trying to pursue happiness...

300 the movie

300 was the latest movie I happened to watch. I would say it was just too good. Everything in the movie was very well done. We were almost on the edge of our seats through out the movie. The movie talked about a time that was in past. It spoke of things that we don't think of much.
The honour, the loyalty, the pride one takes of ones county and freedom. These are things we don't get to see nowadays. The casting was good, chorography was moving. Gerard Butler as King Leonidas was supurb.
The movie takes you into its world.

The movie was simply awsome.

Life as it is ....

Its looks like just yesterday I was out of college and not knowing what to do next with life. Life had been so cruel I thought....

Now so many years passed, yes nearly 10 years and I am somewhere now...a place I can call my own and feel proud that I am here. God has been good to me. Things that I so earnestly wanted eluded me...but my wildest dreams came true..

Well I think I will take some time to fill all the pages that I want too....
