Why was I missing from here?

Because I was busy getting hitched. Pooja and I got married in the modest ambiance of a court in Mumbai on 2nd of May, 2008. Being a person who is uncomfortable with tentativeness in all affairs, I love the finality of it. A certain calmness is giving me a gentle embrace.

As always, the 'Pulitzer man' has something for this occasion too. Its appropriately called 'Wedding Song' and appears in the 1974 album, 'Planet Waves'. A few lines from the song.

I love you more than ever, more than time and more than love,
I love you more than money and more than the stars above,
Love you more than madness, more than waves upon the sea,
Love you more than life itself, you mean that much to me.

Ever since you walked right in, the circle's been complete,
I've said goodbye to haunted rooms and faces in the street,
To the courtyard of the jester which is hidden from the sun,
I love you more than ever and I haven't yet begun.

You breathed on me and made my life a richer one to live,
When I was deep in poverty you taught me how to give,
Dried the tears up from my dreams and pulled me from the hole,
Quenched my thirst and satisfied the burning in my soul.

The picture above is of our feet inside a pristine and ancient pond that we found on one of our jaunts into the wilderness. We call it 'Happy Feet'.

Hey Meraj, I am so so happy for you dost, I am glad you have found your state of bliss and she has a wonderful name! Wish I could spoil your perfect, serene n quiet wedding by being a noisy gate-crasher, but I do hope to meet both of you sometime very soon. Cheers and enjoy the moments, I am sure you would have realized by now how wonderful they are...

Shubhaaya Bhavatu,
