Falling down...

Nobody likes falling down.They get up and try to go on.But life is sometimes cruel and you fall down again.You pick up the pieces and try to move on with whatever you got.. but there is always somebody out there who tries to keep you down.Even if it means he has to go down with you.

If  you are strong, the harder you fall, the stronger you bounce back.The higher you go.Only to fall down with a bigger thud. You try to get a stronger foothold..and just when you think you are stable, just when you think you can handle yourself, you find yourself rolling down.Not knowing where you are going.You dont know in which direction , but just that it is "down".

You hear laughter all around. You hear closely, and realise that you are laughing too.Loudly.You are enjoying the fall. Because it lets you get up.Because you have nothing to lose.Because you think you wont be hurt.Because you love the bouncing back and its fun to try to find your feet.

Thats what a Bouncer does.It gives you the last laugh when you fall.

PS : Ever got that moment where you can be a child again?This was mine !

Sorryyyy it was dramatic !

We went to this farm in DC with my family which had the bouncy thing.We jumped like crazy over this..falling ..rolling.. getting up and falling again.

I suddenly thought..where was this child in me all this while? I missed being that little kid .Oh shoot.. !I can be a kid now !

I dont know if my in-laws were staring..or glaring.. or wondering .. I thoroughly enjoyed myself ! I am sure they would tie me up the next time we see a slide...or a bouncer :P

Couldn't capture sush...he went soo high :P

With Sashi..

He was the guy who was making us fall..:P

And he..


  1. awww! this seems so much fun! I WANT ONE TOO! i want to experience it i mean. i dont know if we have anything like this in Blore. i dont think so :(

    the start of the article was definitely quite different in tone from what followed or what led to it! what a trigger!

  2. Hey Sujatha.. Welcome here ! I have read every post of yours and you are amazing,bold and very honest with your writing.I have been checking for updates every week on your blog..please start writing again ! We are missing some good stuff !

    Thanks a lot for you comment .. Hope you find something like the bouncer..Its a lottt of fun.

  3. Hey Sampada... Very well written. For some time, I felt as if I was reading an old English text book.
    Someone rightly said that "A man dies twice, first time when his childhood ends".
    If someone can coincide the first death with his/her second one, the he/she has lived life to the fullest. I'm glad you still have the child alive in you.

    Keep having fun and of course blogging.

  4. Old English Text book haa.. Dunno what to make of it :/

    "A man dies twice, first time when his childhood ends". Interesting..have never heard or read before !
