Sharing My Fridge, Hair & $10!

Expand Your Lives!

This time I have 6 new flatmates yeyy yeyy yeyy! Since it was too hard to choose 1 winner from all those amazing answers (each and everyone on of you gave such smart and heartfelt reasons for choosing your flower pics, thanks!), I did 'ini mini miny moe' on all the names of people who gave me answers in that post and selected 6 random winners. And they are..drum roll please...Jay, Ria, Rakesh, Amit, Suresh and Random_Ramblings! WOW I'm gonna be having 6 new fantastic, fresh, smart, sensible, witty and gorgeous flatmates in my house very soon, I just can't wait! Now don't be disheartened the rest of you..you'll have a chance next time ok (and after all, this is just a game so let's just have fun without getting icky about not been chosen etc). Now the 6 of you will get an email from me soon regarding our joint post and all you've got to do is write a small post for me on the topic given. Kapish? Beautiful! But this time, there's an Intruder too! And that person is selected by me purely for the reason that he/she didn't take part in my Flower post at all...lol payback time! And the honors go to Talking_To_My_Soul! Yes, you are the Intruder in our shared accommodation this time! I'll email you soon about what you have to do ok Soul? So, myself and the Intruder included, there's gonna be 8 bodies in my house for a while! So stay tuned everyone for that sizzling joint post that's coming up soon! ;-) Thanks all for being a sport and giving it a shot, you all rock!



Locks Of Love...
Now, my friend Anuz wanted to see before and after pics of my hair revolution. So here they are Anuz, especially for you! See how long my hair was, and see how short it is now. My hair was actually longer than this, cos this long-hair pic was taken last May! Yes it was hard to say Goodbye to it but I just had to find innovative ways to learn to Let Go, and I did :). Some people may say for goddsake its just hair Keshi, but we all have an emotional attachment to the way we look and to our identities. So yeah, I can honestly say it was hard to say Goodbye to my long hair but I thought about all those women and kids without any hair at all (be it from Chemo or illnessses). And where I cut my hair, they take long hairs and donate to wig-making. What a wonderful way to GIVE love.



I'm Gonna Be A Mum!
No I'm not pregnant, neither am I planning for it hehe. There's this dream of mine that I wanted to come true for ages and didn't really find time to see it shaping into reality...and now the time has come for me to make it real. I'm gonna be adopting a little 4yr old boy all the way in Sri Lanka, yes! (sorry I cannot give too many personal details about him or show you his pic due to privacy reasons). This little angel has stolen my heart completely, for even after I looked at his sad big eyes on a certain site's database and switched off my PC, he still hasn't left my heart. 2 weeks ago I saw his photo for the first time and the moment I set my eyes on him, I wanted to give him a life, a childhood, a reason to smile that he probably never experienced before. The website stated his hobbies as 'playing with my toys' and instantly hot tears welled up in my eyes. He's from a very poor and war-stricken family that often go to bed hungry, and the money that I donate to him every month is apparently more than enough for him and his whole family to survive. Yes, we are so much more luckier than many people out there. Have you ever given it a thought? I hope so. I'm not rich neither am I free of worries or troubles (I have plenty though I don't mention them here, and yes I sleep on a bed of thorns), but I think I have been blessed with many things in life that I'm able to share them with a less fortunate person...with someone who perhaps don't have a safe and happy childhood like I did. I feel alot of people, including my loved-ones, are mangled in their own selfish Wants that they forget to appreciate what they already have...so they whine, kick and cry over what they don't have. They fail to see how many others in this world live without even 1% of what they posses. And that's what makes me wanna be different...different to what the people I know are seeking from life. Sometimes their endless Wants choke my spirit. You don't have to have a million dollars to share with someone else...sharing only requires a feeling heart, and even $10 would make a difference in someone else's life or day. And what's the point in achieving many things in life, having endless assets and having loads of fun if we can't share? So if all goes well, from next week I'll be that little boy's 2nd mum :). And some day I hope to go visit this wonderful boy and his family in Sri Lanka...cos I wanna do one more thing, and that is HUG him with all my heart!


(please note: This post is not for me to gain praise. By writing about my work towards the needy, I intend to make a positive change in others who may read this. That's my soul intention of letting you all know what I do on the sidelines of my life. Don't honor me for I'm only a small fish in this big ocean of life...if you really wanna make a difference, take a step ahead and help someone in need. Thanks all!)

I'll try 2 be truthful said...

I can't help but praise . I'm so awed by this act of yours . :)
kudos keshi .

ps- waiting (very eagerly) for the guest posts.

Talking To My Soul said...

Let me say it again. Hi Angel-heart. Hi Kesh. You did a great thing.

If you remember, you had posed 10 questions in one of your posts on December 17 and one of them was: How do you see me in future? Look for what I wrote.

Long hair or short, you rock!


*smilez*

Talking To My Soul said...

Heyyyy, Kesh. Goood to see you. And thanks a ton tonna ton for making me barge into your flat. INTRUDER, eh!

So what do I do now? You don't have my mail ID either. How would you mail me, eh!

Will wait for info from your side. Thanks a world again. I felt honoured.

*smilez*

Rakesh said...

Yay! I'm in...

And what a coincidence Kesh, I did the same thing last week :) You know, after adopting that little girl, I've been thinking - Did I do this for that girl I adopted or did I do this for myself? I can't stop thinking whether I'm selfish to be doing this for satisfying my urge to be good. Coz. Giving money is the easiest thing I can do right now. And even while writing her letters and stuff, I think I might be doing it more for myself. I'm now really challenging myself to do some good which involves me sacrificing something really dear (But too personal to talk about here)...

Take care...

Btw, my email account mentioned in my profile is acting crazy these days. How do I send you my another email address for the joint post?

PS. Love that song :)

Jay said...

Woo-Hoo! I'll box up my stuff and move in immediately. Of course while you're out I'm going to set up a few strategically placed webcams. For your protection, of course. LOL ;-)

Vaisakh P S said...

You are saying exactly what my parents have taught me ever since I was a kid.

"You don't have to have a million dollars to share with someone else...sharing only requires a feeling heart"

And that's what I have been doing ever since. We can help out people in a lot of ways. Not just by giving them financial aid. Being along with them, guiding them.

My dad is always so short tempered , but has helped so many people and families in his life. And people respect him for. He is the one who taught me a lot of lessons in life and inspired me to do a lot of things.

And I have decided that after i settle down, i will adopt a baby gurl. Watch, care and support her as my own while she grows up.

:)

its not just a dream or fantasy , its my decision.

Elithraniel Arawion said...

go keshi!!! that's so nicee of you :) and yes it'll inspire many to do such positive things

Random Ramblings said...

Yay!!
Hear ye hear ye..."I AM KESHI'S NEW FLATMATE!!"
Thx Keshi for choosing me!! Now, I am jittery of writing a post that meets ur standards...shall give it a shot!

About ur son-to-be...many people speak a lot...but you have proved that actions speak louder. truly proud of u. And he is a lucky kid indeed for getting a mom like u.

Smiles,
Nita.

Vaisakh P S said...

you are doing something really remarkable and extraordinary .

god bless you Keshi

Kartz said...

*ahem* And someone was asking me abt being single for V-Day? ;) Congrats to u, the winners and the lucky loser... ;)

And please, what was the reason for you to write that note at the end? Duh! :P

Anyways, I believe in good karma... So, things that go around, come around. To make a difference, *be* the difference.

I wish you well.

Peace.

PS: U on orkut/facebook..?

PPS: And hell yeah! Me single. :) For that matter, u r too. ;D Of course, provided Auntie B hasn't gate-crashed anything yet.

!Teq-uila Del Zapata said...

Wow! Six is sexy Babey! ;)

With my name on your blog l am feeling like a celebrity, still dont know how to handle these paparazzi(please please no cameras, haa haa).

Thanks for sharing the pic, they are still longer than mine, I thought I will win "long hair contest", but i guess i need to put some more fertilizers to compete with you.

I had a desire, which I generally dont share, for the fear of reaction and much worse that if it may not come true and i will feel disheartened. Instead of having own kids, i really wanted to adopt a needy kid and raise it, but I am not sure, that if I will be able to do that.
Btw, that is a great thing u have a done, I wish i had such a huge heart.
As I prize I must offer you matrimonial services like aunt B and find u a suitable tamil match(LOL, I was just kiddin! , dont ban me from the blog.*you must be rolling your eyes by now*)

Margie said...

Oh Keshi, you brought tears to my eyes!
Someday you'll get the meet the little guy and give him the biggest hug!
You are doing such a good thing!

Congrats to all the winners that were picked as your flatmates.

Wow! big difference in your hair length and I'm glad to know where you cut your hair they donate to wig making...it's a wonderful thing!

Lotsa HUGS to you, hun!

Suresh Kumar said...

Hmm.... at last my prayers are answered.... thank you God for giving me this opportunity!

And I am proud really to have such a friend. Here is wishing you and your child a bright and good future.

I know of a childless parents who couldn't conceive kids for the last nine years. Wife wanted to adapt a kid. Husband and the family members discouraged her saying a lot of negative things. And she gave up her dreams. No one seems to understand her.

Sun Follower said...

a friend of mine also contributed his long maine of hair to lock of love. excellent!

Just call me 'A' said...

Oh Keshi, you made me so proud of you today. He will bring joy to your life, I believe that and vice versa!

Good job sweetie, bring in a sister for him too. Girls need us more than boys in Asia, remember that always! Hugs to you! :))

Tarun said...

Says hi to all the 6 guys + the intruder.

If I were to suggest, I think u should be hoping next flight to Colombo.

It is a great gesture.
I know u aint one bit boastful at all (especially is it is not John Ambraham :D).
I salute u, it is great gesture.
We all have wants but few have the will to give and share.

I am honoured to read what u plan to do.

CrazyHeart said...

hey keshi,
i want to adopt..ya..
its a way to be grateful to humanity.one of my neghbiur adopted a baby..girl..i could see the 1 yr old to be thankful in its eyes.
Ths nice ya..you are able to do it..are ppl in ur family..supporting it.

Priya said...

Congrats to all winners. Love your hairstyle and looks nice on you. I am sure you will enjoy that sweet trip to see that little heart..

AmitL said...

Ohhh...*tries to blush and smile at the same time*-what a thrilling post to read at the end of the week- just what I needed,frankly,after a tiring week..looking forward to the 'flatmate topic',Keshi!!:)(PS I checked gmail twice today,to see if there's a mail there..LOL)
----
The 'before and after' of Keshi's hair also made me grin..well,u're right- hair's as much a part of a person as any other-so, losing it must've been a bit painful(Like the time I shaved my moustache nearly 10 yrs back after a dozen deliberations...ROFL..must post about that someday)
----
What a lovely thought- adopting a 5 yr old kid..I love your kind soul!And, I so agree-when God has given us enough to keep us happy,it always feels good to share it with the less fortunate!That reminded me of a small 'diary'which our sponsored child sent to me,and,it was,perhaps the only thing last yr that brought a tear to my eye...it had a pic of him happily reading a paper, his ambition to be a doctor,and so on...written in such an honest tone that I was left speechless!Maybe that deserves a post,too!!:)*smiles*
---
Tks again for the pleasant surprise.

Hiren said...

keshi,

love you even more now ... its a proud feeling to call you my friend ... god bless yaa !!!

and abt ur haircut ... i can truly understand ... i once had kept a french beard for about 6-8 months ... but when i had to get rid of it ... it was a horrible feeling something akin to getting stripped off :)

u take care mate ... was really proud to read this post.

ciao,
hiren

Ria said...

Wow!i cant believe my eyes.....and i really dunno how to react!! :) I won....Yeyy!U made my day babe. I cant believe u chose me from the teeming millions who comment on ur posts. ;) Thanks a ton sweets and i shall wait for ur mail. I knw its gonna b great fun!! :P

And for what u hav done....i hav only one word and that is "Overwhelming".....tht was wht u felt when i read abt u adopting a child. Thts the best tht privileged ppl like us can do, to do our bit. I love u for being the human being tht u r hun!! *Hugs*

WarmSunshine said...

Hey Keshi :)

it was really heart warming to know about the little boy :) i do pray your message gets across to many people. it's one thing we bloggers are good at: we can make ppl think if we want to.. and my dear, you did a marvelous job doing that :)

may God give you the strength and resources to give that boy a new and better life.

*hugs*

lots of love!

Keshi said...

** I can't stop thinking whether I'm selfish to be doing this for satisfying my urge to be good.

I will email u soon ok, tnxx! :)

Keshi said...

Bla hey no need to be stunned..its really nothing, cos so many ppl do it :) I'd really be totally content if I cud visit some hunger-stricken places in the world and spend some time with those ppl...to experience their lives. I think that time will come for that too...some day I hope.

Keshi said...

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Anits wut OMG! :) ok I'll come ard now!

Keshi.

Diana said...

Thats such a kind and thoughtful gesture Keshi...Personaly, I cannot imagine doing something like this coz perhaps I dnt have the guts for it...Kudos gal...

The last post regarding Chriz and U was so damn funny...cant wait to read about ur flatmates.....

Take care.

Margie said...

In your email I could feel your elation....OMG....I'm so very happy for you Keshi...ur a mum!

Yeah, wouldn't it be so cool if we were at the game together except my most excellent baseball player of a son might have his game suffer as I do believe his eyes might be on you....hahaha!

HUGS!

Margie:)

Suresh Kumar said...

Rejection was because the blood. The seniors were of the belief that the child may have come from some bad blood etc. Its disgusting..

Keshi said...

ty Diana HUGS!


** I cannot imagine doing something like this coz perhaps I dnt have the guts for it

I felt like that before...but the guts and everything else will come when the TIME is right :)

til then dun worry abt it girl.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Margie yes Im so excited! Cos I was never a mum and I feel this boy will give me Joy as much as I'd be able to give him joy.

He's a big addition to my life's beauty. OMG he's only 4, such a small teddy bear! :)



**my most excellent baseball player of a son might have his game suffer as I do believe his eyes might be on you

HAHAHAHA! well u hv a very handsome son...I might not follow the game, I'll just follow him lol!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Suresh thats a very mean thing for them to say abt an innocent child that they hvnt even met.

I guess if ur friend believe in wut these ppl said and didnt go ahead with the adoption, then its not her calling. Cos we cant do something just cos someone else is doing it. There has to be a real interest and a genuine FEELING towards the deed. If not, its best they dun do it at all.



Keshi.

Margie said...

**Well u have a very handsome son...I might not follow the game, I'll just follow him.lol!**
HAHAHAHA!
Now that really made me laugh as there are so many girls at his school who go to the games and do just that...just there to keep their eyes on all the good looking baseball players.lol!
When we were at a game last fall a girl came up and asked me if my son had a girlfriend.lol!

Keshi, I know how much joy that precious little boy will give you and you'll give him so much joy also as him most caring & wonderful mum!

A huge addition to your life's beauty!
Yes, indeed!
It's just wonderful!
I wish so much I was there to give you a huge HUG of congrats.

HUGS! HUGS! HUGS! HUGS!
That will have to do!

Margie

Keshi said...

btw, Im on a massive HUG-a-thon with ya now. HUGGGGGGGGGGGZ HUGGGGGGGGGGGZ HUGGGGGGGGGGGZ!

Keshi.

Margie said...

It's a good Friday for you, isn't it, Keshi!?
I can feel your heart is colored with love!

Oh, I'm so very, very sorry you won't get a peek at the handsome baseball player! lol!
Oh, he once saw a picture of you and I think he said, WOW!

Keeping the HUG-a-thon going then.

I hope he's naughty and drives you up the wall :P :P

And I'v not had a chance to be your roommate yet...next time maybe. Not been able to audition the last two times you see

Margie said...

Hi Hun
I just came back to say "have a simply wonderful weekend."

It's snowing here now and I just know we are going to freeze at the baseball game.
We are bringing Jake so I'll just have to snuggle up to him and have his warm fur keep me warm.
It's going to be a very wintery day on Sat...

Well, till we talk again take care and know that you are loved!

Oh, if you have flowering trees in your yard, may they drop thousands of petals to make a silky carpet for you to lie on!
(the poet in me could not resist saying that.)

HUGGGGGGGGGZ!

Margie

Shachi said...

Sooperb! I am so proud of you gurl....

Keep up the good work...and be blessed always!

Hugz :)

moi said...

wow 8 people, that's quite a number!!

And indeed you have done a noble job by bringing a smile on a babies life, you rock gal!! cheers

AnonymousBlogger said...

Without a doubt, your hair is much better now than before. I love it.

Good on you for your humanitarian work! If everyone did what you're doing, imagine the number of kids that could be helped.

ray said...

Hi,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘Viva forever...’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

Cheers,
Ray

Vani said...

I am not going to say,
I am not going....
I am not...
I am....
I.....

.

Yes Keshi girl.....By this you are removing the feeling of "I" from everyone of us atleast for this moment.

Need I have to say Thanks girl??? I won't becasue I know a beautiful soul,so NO. Keep it up!!

Give him tight hug on my behalf when you see him in person..

Coming to your new flatmates.....
"Big Brother" concept on the net!!! What an idea!!!! Hope you have fixed enough camera for us to see it LIVE!!All the very best

Pri said...

congratulations to the flatmates

rahul said...

hey keshi..I am so proud to be a friend of ours..I think if only a fraction of the expatriate population of the World does this small gesture..then I don't think we will necessarily have to beg to the foreign countires for aids and all.

btw. I am also working on a social initaitive wid some friends..hope fully very soon something fruitful will emerge.

Keep up the good work..you are inspiring a lot of others!!!

Did I complement you on how beautiful you are looking in the new look...well I just did :)))

trinitystar said...

100% right Keshi .. sometimes its not money ... a smile of compassion helps ... I reckon if everyon gave one £1, $1, it could help the unfortunate ones in this world.
I think people do want to help but really do not know how to.
hugs for you
trinity

Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey HUGS Trinity n tnxx!

**I think people do want to help but really do not know how to.

I agree.

sometimes its the other way around tho..there r many ways to help but ppl just dun make that first step. maybe they feel scared or dun trust enough to help a total stranger. I was like that...but I came out of it all.


Keshi.

Chriz said...

Enigma said...

its certainly not just words of praise... but its a lovely thing thta u decided to do...
I have been tryin to do something similar for quite some time now...
I first wanna settle down and waitin for hubby to get a job etc so that i can adopt a child's education and stuff...

Sweetstickychewy said...

Keshi..i am speechless. I want that compassionate heart of yours. Kudos of being a builder of a young life and MUm.

HUGS!

Keshi.

SMM said...

Keshi...so what's the name of our newest member? You have to put up a post of his antics soon :)

Keshi said...

SMM according to the authorities I sponsored the kid from, making his personal details public is not allowed. But I can ask them later on, if I can put up his pic in my blog etc...although Im not sure if its the right thing to do, by him I mean :(


but I really do wanna share his details with u all...cos this is a first time for me to hv a connection with a child (total stranger) in this manner. And its a magical journey for me...it feels so unreal! Its an absolutely FREEING experience for my soul too.

I'll see wut I can do ok.

tnxx for ur encouragement luv!


Keshi.

krystyna said...

I read this post, Keshi. Sorry that I didn't write comment. This week I was sick, so I only read your post, than I forgot to come back. Thanks for reminder.
I am proud of you!!!Definitely.
You are smart woman, you will be great mom. I think that all kids are our. When I was in your age I thopught about adoption too. But I had a problem with my health. Than I had my own 2 kids.

I wish you good luck!!!

Beach Bum said...

About the only thing I can write is that your inner beauty outshines what I see with your pictures.

This post is not for me to gain praise.

Never thought that for a minute. In fact it would be good if you did write about your efforts to help others.

I feel alot of people, including my loved-ones, are mangled in their own selfish Wants that they forget to appreciate what they already have...so they whine, kick and cry over what they don't have.

One of the many things that baffles me is how many people just want things for no other reason that they think their lives will be improved by owning a bigger house, fast shiny car, or a mega-sized television. A certain amount of material desire is okay but for us in the Western world it has gone out of control. So much that we brazenly overlook those who don't even have the basis needs to live since it might prevent us from fulfilling our own selfish wants. I look forward to hearing more about your efforts.

I must add that I'm doing a little volunteer work with kids at a school close to my job. Its called "Lunch Buddies" and all I do is have lunch with a kid that is without a grownup that he or she can talk with and feel like someone cares. It ain't much but its a start.

Satish Bolla said...

keshi, no words for this post. it all started in a happy n carefree note and ended on a humanitarian note. may this post bring some change in at least a couple of people. may GOD bless u

SMM said...

Okay so don't tell us his name then...just tell us about him. And howz it been on your and your family?

Keshi said...

hey ty Krys for ur sweet encouragement!

:)

Keshi.

Keshi said...

aww ty BB!

I know that u always, I mean ALWAYS, understood wut Im trying to say. Im VERY lucky to hv ya as a mate here.


** I'm doing a little volunteer work with kids at a school close to my job. Its called "Lunch Buddies" and all I do is have lunch with a kid that is without a grownup that he or she can talk with and feel like someone cares. It ain't much but its a start.

Wonderful! Its not the size of the job that matters, its how much it makes the other person's life better that matters. And Im sure those kids' lives r a million times better to hv someone to talk to n hv lunch with. Its the simple things like that that r the BIG things in life.

Im v proud of ya BB.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Satish Im glad I cud do that too :) really glad hehe.

Keshi.

Keshi said...

SMM Im waiting for to receive his portfolio in the mail.

Abt my family..they dun even know, not yet :) When I receive all his details n pics, I will show it to em. I know there'll always be ppl whose ideas dun quite gel with my ideas, but it really doesnt bother me. Cos this is my money that Im spending, my dream that Im realising and an innocent child that will be smiling.

That will do for me :). The rest dun matter.


Keshi.

La vida Loca said...
