Dear Friends,
Good Evening!
I  am really happy to be a part of the grand celebration of  another important milestone of Leo,completing 600 posts.Vinu,hearty congratulations and thanks  a bunch for selecting me as one of   your guests.:)In blogosphere, Leo is so popular that he does not need any introduction.Sharing his thoughts with the rest of the world Vinu started blogging in 2006.I  Rhyme Without Reason is a delight   to the readers.The writer’s passion for poetry is visible.Vinu owns four blogs and always surprised me with his amazing posts.The signature Leo is very attractive and the posts are thought provoking!It’s my privilege to do the 598th  post.It’s a great achievement, my dear friend that you are reaching a grand milestone.Vinu,I am honoured.You deserve more feathers to your cap and that will happen in near future.You are the first Keralite whom I came across to own a Hindi blog.You write  the lines beautifully  in Hindi.You are lucky that you are able to pen down your thoughts like the flow of a river.Hats off to the bright star of the garden city.You are busy in the badminton court  and reading fictions and poetry help to destress you.


From the land of cool soothing nights,
Heavy showers and strong winds,
Wild  parties and stretches of soft sand,
I congratulate you, my friend,
For reaching the milestone of

The huge number of six hundred posts!
When I first open my eyes upon the deep blue sea,
And the wonderful sight of rising sun,
I thank God,I am alive.
With a heart filled with gratitude,
I chant my morning prayers.
Nothing in nature is for itself;
Rivers don’t drink water,
Trees don’t eat their fruits!
Sun does not give heat for itself.
So,let’s learn to live for others.
Friends,my favourite quote is,
”Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass,
It’s about learning how to dance in the rain”.
Who doesn’t face the adversity?
But remember it’s not the adversity,
But how we react to it,
That will determine the joy and happiness in our lives.
Teaching our hearts to heal with time,
We can live with wisdom,self respect and love,
Even if we struggle to cope up with,
Anger,resentment and depression,
Let us believe in the new bright morning,

And remain grateful, hopeful and proactive!
I am grateful to you,yaar, for the recognition,
And it is more than any valuable gift.
Gratitude unlocks the richness of life,
It turns a stranger to a friend.:)
I am happy that I met you,
In this beautiful world of blogosphere!
Friends,
                Gratitude changes our lives. The magical words,”Thank You”makes someone’s day.
From the land of sun,sand and beaches,
Wishing you a very bright and prosperous future,
Where The Great  God showers His Choicest Blessings On you,
When I will be browsing through the bookstalls,
To purchase your popular best sellers,
You will have a surprise in store for the world. 
Mein to woh lamaha hoon jo aaj hain
Kal shyaad guzar jaon! 
It’s  Anu signing off..
Wishing you a happy and peaceful night,
As the good rains bring hope for improved yield,
Let’s be optimistic for the bright and beautiful tomorrow.
Requesting you to continue your journey of creative writing,
Reminding you,Anu loves you dil se,
                              Sasneham,
                                Anu

From Leo:
Today’s guest at my blog, as some of you would have already recognized from the style, is Anupama ๐Ÿ™‚ She’s a straight from the heart blogger who I’ve had the privilege of reading since a long time. We’ve become good friends now, and glad to see her here. She blogs at Sincerely Yours

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
