Silhouettes Of You...

I remember...I remember more than I've witnessed. I've witnessed...I've witnessed more than I can remember.

I'd like to forget...I'd like to forget more than I can erase. I've erased...I've erased more than I'd like to forget.



We humans have very short memories. We tend to forget very quickly. As much as we cared about the September 11th, Mumbai Attacks and the Tsunami and it's victims back then, we hardly talk about it anymore. Cos we have moved on. Cos we have new things in our lives to remember or worry about. It's human nature. But how about that certain someone who was there for you when no one was around? What about the first friend you made online? Do you still remember a kind deed by a total stranger? What about your granma? Do you remember how she made you your favorite food? Do you still have fond memories of your first story book? Do you still think about the people you once wanted in your life but don't want anymore? How about your first day at work or Uni? Do you remember how you felt? Or have you under the notion of 'moving on', totally forgotten those simple yet important people, moments, events, experiences, things that made you the person that you are today? Have you really forgotten them or do you prefer to live in denial? Sometimes all we want to do is fly...fly as high as we can, forgetting fast who we used to be and those who once contributed to our existence. But soon we know we have to hit the ground and memories crash down on you.



I've covered a distance...I've covered a distance more than I could measure. I've measured...I've measured a distance more than I could cover.



Do you remember? I do now...I remember me and us, I remember the sweet moments, the bitter ones, the guitar my father bought me when I was 5, the helping hand, the excitement when I bought my first car, the kind words, my granma's cakes, an old pair of purple shorts that I loved, that flight alone to Singapore when a stewardess gave me tissues cos I was crying, those giggles back in school, the tight slap, the precious vase that I accidentally dropped, my childhood smile, that argument, the truth, the lies, that long drive in the rain, those careless locks across my childhood friend's forehead, the $100 bill in my wallet, my granpa teasing me, when there was no money in my pocket to share, the times when someone was there for me, the times when no one was around, the long walk home after my dad was cremated, the stab in my heart, how I was given a NO, how he left, how I crumbled, how I stood up again, how I worked hard for that YES, my teenage tantrums, the thrill of receiving a prize from the President of SL, how I used to iron my school uniform every night, how I hate irons now, the sun on my face, how I waited for the tooth-fairy to give me a new tooth, the sound of the waves on the day he left, how I once screamed in anger, the pretty Lotus flowers in the temple, when I moved houses, those new shoes, the old ones in the bin, that kiss, how I accidentally ran infront of a speeding bus while my mum watched in horror, the touch of your cheeks, the smell of Gardenias from my aunt's garden, a beautiful spirit who was a total stranger, the cowards, the heros, the tragedy, the triumph...how it all made me who I am. I will take with me all the people, pieces and the lessons. I will never forget where I started. Yes I remember you.





So what do you remember now from what you thought you had forgotten?

Keshi...last post I did took me on a trip down memory lane and this post by you just carries the trip forward...of course I remember that 1st day to school, the first friend I made, my first award, all those mistakes I've made and those moments of despair and those of exultation...I remember..ohh yes, I do!!!

Maddy said...

Oh! Girl, you have made me to rewind my whole life in ten minutues. I could relate most of the moments you have mentioned.Thanks for bringing those moments.

♥ÐÅyÐяєÅмє®♥ said...

My mind is all blocked up now coz of recent development in India and Srilanka but I guess moving on is a gift that god gave to us which help us forgetting the acute-most pain..


when we just have a few moments to live ..it is not better to linger with the past and ignore that fact that future is coming

vinay said...

Moments become memories...and when these memories flood back in your mind..they become moments to cherish..and these moments again become memories...it is a cycle..nice to be back Keshi chan...

Devika said...

All things are possible if one remembers -

I read it in a book, just about a few months ago...

I think it makes a lot of sense, especially in the context of love and humanity...but yet, one shouldn't be clinging on the past to the detriment of oneself and others...

Nice post, Keshi
I remember almost everything since I started going to school...and before that too, some days are as vivid as yesterday :)

and then as a young one, I also had the habit of writing them! :)

i do not remember a thing that I have forgotten, because I have not forgotten anything! :)

love,
devika

Shionge said...

I remembered how I've hurt my love ones and NEVER ever gonna do it again.

Thank you once again for this wonderful post :)

Arv said...

I dont want to forget where I came from... I wont forget where I came from...

thanks for writing this post :)

cheers...

Vani said...

I dont forget things that easily (except with studie of course)..I keep memories as precious pearls which i'll take to grave with me some day..
There r somethings which I do want to forget though..Some painful ones..But those which I want to erase from my mind r the ones which come back to me stronger than ever..

Hemanth Potluri said...

i remember the day i was always first in ur blog...i remember the day we fought for silly issues heheh :P..i remember ur birthday last year...i remember my childhood things so much..


i loved this post sweets...just reminded me of so many things of my childhood...i ran to look into my album of childhood :)..thanks so much :)..

urs..hemu..

Vani said...

The memories u've mentioned here have left me speech less for a while..They made so many memories in my mind to rush forwards..Somethings which I never realised that I still I have them in my mind..Thanx keshi..

the stygian sailor said...

what i remember of you?
our fight on tys' blog :)

♪♪HARINI♪♪ said...

well i remember too much. waay too much. at one point of time, maybe 8th standard or something, people starting teasing me bout remembering every single thing.. thhow M liked her macaroni, the name of my friends' cousins and what they did when.... almost everything people told me. then i realised that its remembering that matters and not forgetting. try as hard as i may i couldnt. i can never remember india's latitudes and longitudes but these things i can never forget.

Kunjal said...

after reading your post I strolled in my memory lane recalling all my low and high moments:)
it reminds me of my school, how I cried when I ddin't get a proper desk to write in my exams,how I tried to hide when I was given a punishment and my sisters came to my class to offer sweets on their bday,mys sisters were the house captains and I was not selected for any of the events,I had the highest marks in my class but still my drawing teacher failed me and many more things..............

Jeevan said...

Very true! We never remember everything always, and something we need to sign us about a thing. At moment reading you post I remind a smile from a stranger who took away my suffering sometime, and my first day at school and the boy who pinch me sitting beside, the last time I waked on bare foot and a marriage even I finally attended years back, could still remain in memories just whenever I imagine about a marriage hall. As we think it will kept flowing non-stop, so I stop here. :)

Prats said...

wow!!! That was a lovely memory feedback...am so glad I got back to reading your blogs...i've got so many to catch up on now....am still reading and loving each one of them.
This post made me remember so many things too...that it kept me going back to where I had stopped...after all life cannot go on without those memories one has been treading on, can they?

( But you remember your teen tantrums??? wow!!! ) I'm hoping to forget my sons' teen issues once he's done with them :(.. )

Asha said...

Americans do not forget anything. We still remember Pearl Harbor, 9/11, Oklahome bombing and school shootings, we remember every other incident happened to this country. India too. Bapuji's birthday and Nehru's birthday, we still celebrate.

As ordinary person, I wish I do forget some parts of my life quickly but very hard!

Btw, check ad read my new post. I do remember my beautiful childhood! Those beautiful people make who I am now, not the bad people who showed later in my life!:)

Swetha Padakandla said...

aqua gurl said...

omg, this one's awesome!!

brought old memories back!! Lovely.

PS- your writing is heartfelt, i am gng to read a few posts from the past once m done my exams tonite:D

Kartz said...

Heart-warmer of a post. True, how the human race fails to remember the smaller successes and more pleasant things in life.

Here's one...

We may not be able to answer academic stuff - the Nobel laureates, the ones who make/break records... But we sure *are* able to answer when posed with stuff like - who helped you when you felt down and out... Who has surprised you with a change in attitude... And the like...

Moving on - is something easier said that done. A mass of ppl can *move on*. But think abt the those who have been maimed for life. They have to swallow the harsh pills of life... And "move on". Ironic, per se.

Anyway, thanks for reminding all and sundry that life is how one chooses to see it.

And btw, I never forget. :) I have this elephantine memory which prolly fails at only one place - the examination hall. ;)

Keep writing. Spread the voice.

Peace. Be well.

Prashanti said...

Kesh, How do you manage to write such meaningful posts all the time ?
A lovely recollection of that that was :)
I certainly try not to forget the help I have received when I was in dire need of it . and yes also the first friend I made in blogville and that is YOU :)

La vida Loca said...

I dont think I completely forget things. I may not talk about it at all but it doesnt mean the memories dont bubble just beneath the surface. (although I wish I could forget somethings)

Ria said...

Wow!that was a very nostalgic post, replete with bitter sweet memories from the past which we generally assume tht we dont remember!! But surprisingly we do remember them when we sit and recollect the yrs passed by.

Fortunately or unfortunately i have a very good memory so i have some really vivid memories of my childhood.
I remember Hyderabad, the place where i started schooling, the place which gave me innumerable number of sweet memories....memories which i shall never forget coz that was the best stage of my life....a life that was free from complications, politics, back biting, jealousy.
I remember the time when we got transferred to Calcutta, i remember the tears that were streaming down my face.....i remember the feeling of alienation which i faced in Calcutta, the feeling of being an outcaste....coming back home from school and never wanting to go back!
I remember the feeling of happiness when we went from Calcutta to Bhubaneswar which is my native place. I remember the sadness when i realised that friends were not meant to be there forever!! Atleast not when ur father is in a transferable job.
I remember the rushes of first love....love which was here to stay...the first heart break which made me hate myself for trusting the wrong person!! The feeling of nothingness when i lost my grandpa....the pangs of loneliness which i went thru due to the vagaries of a long distance relation ship......these memories make me what i am today!! It makes me, Me!
Lovely post gurl!! And i m sure i went over board with this long comment. But ur posts always do that to me hun! :)

Whitesnake said...

I forget what I was suppose ta remember.........

but I remember you!

Paul said...

Sometimes I wonder why certain really little things stick with you. Most of the details I remember from when I was a kid were important to me at the time, but here and there are some that seem almost random -like playing outside in the winter near my house in the dark under a street light in a snow bank.

I mean, I grew up with a lot of snow and played around the house at night plenty and in lots of snowbanks as big or bigger than that one...

And I remember finally being so cold that I had to go in. Maybe that's why?? Doesn't seem like much of a reason!

Aditya K said...

hmm..!! indded something 2 think about...!! i did rember or tried to remeber lotsa "first" things..!!

but sometyms its bettr 2 forget things n MOVE ON in lyf..!! :)

Silvara said...

Beautiful post Kesh - it brought back and made me think of all the things that I had supposedly forgotten but were just hidden away...

As for events....time is a great healer and distancer of wounds....but as you said we may move on, but we don't forget...

GLOBAL BLOGS said...

Hi Keshi

Very sweet post!

We were in England once, London to be exact, riding the Tube when we missed our station. A bloke saw we were lost and offered to show us to destination. He took us right to the address. As we were busy looking at the building, the bloke slipped away. When I turned around to pay and thank him for his kindness he was no where to be seen. The whole thing spooks me every time I think about it.

sometimes it hurts but i do remember every moment of it, every single moment. :-)

Rakesh Vanamali said...

Sometimes, I feel a limited memory is bliss! One does not need to remember that, that does need to be remembered! Nature is a master crafter....... thanks for taking me down memory lane!

Chronicwriter said...

Phil said...

I loved this post because I seem to remember everything. I write and I use that to keep memories alive and incorporating them into my stories. If for no one else but me those memories give my fictional stories and charactewrs a feeling of authenticity.

Shrav said...

definitely took me down my memory lane, lots of thought provoking things too!!

Rakesh said...

Awesome post Keshi! Brought back a million memories that have made up my life and in a way me.

crazy things u do to us readers...

Jack said...

Keshi,

As you move on in life there are certain memories, happy or sad, which stay with you forever as you listed first this or that, love of grandparents, celebrations, tragedies in family etc etc. And there are few things which lose intesity over the period like natural calamities in the world, terrorist acts etc. That is life. Let us keep fond memories and make efforts to stop re-occurrence of tragic ones if we can.

Take care

KK said...

I think I will write a post on this. Guess it will be nice to keep track of what I remember about my life.

Nice post! Will take this as a tag...

KK said...

Nice template BTW....

Diya said...

You just made me remember some truck loads of memories that I had left behind in my quest for success... as if I could relate each and every memory of yours to some forgotten twists on the road I tread on... Wonderful...! :)

Love ya Keshi :)

WarmSunshine said...

A beautiful post. And I could tell you wrote this one with an open heart... everything coming back to you like a film :)

I remember my first few days at school, that terrifying feeling that mum wasn't around, and i remember making friends. I remember all my teachers, my teacher in grade 1 who was really really nice to me, my teacher in grade 2 who was so serious, my teacher in grade 3 who was so scary :D my teacher in grade 4 who was friendly, my teacher in grade 9 who was my first crush :D I remember the farewell party when school was over, and how i cried my eyes out over it. I remember my first day at college, that alien feeling and that fitting in feeling that came really slowly. I remember how naughty i was as a kid, how my mum had a big trouble on making me sit still while she made up my hair :D I remember mum's colleague who gifted me with a hair clip that I simple loved! I still have that :) I remember that first Indian friend I made on the internet. I remember spending cold mornings all on my own, sitting in front of the heart sipping coffee while watching the heavy fog out the window :)

I remember meeting him, amongst thousands of people in the world. I remember that one night when he called to say sorry over something so small... I remember his 2 am texts, I remember my hand held, I remember being loved.

Bored??? :D

True.... I hold on to memories too. I LOVED this post Keshi!!

*hugs*

krystyna said...

Satish Bolla said...

buddy, u made me nostalgic. well, i'm almost like u in this aspect. people tell "don't think abt the past", but i like jogging down the memory lane.

but surely, this is one post which i'll recommend to some of my forgetful frnds.

Vest said...

I am able to recall most of my life from the age of three and a bit when my father departed this world. Have traced my ancestry back to the 1700s. However,I don't remember my grandparents whose issue have gone and I am the sole survivor from my parents. I shall do a post on this S A P. some of it scary.X.

Urv said...

Where is Keshi,
Where is Keshi,
Where is she?

Raghu Ram Prasad said...

Your memory is very nice...Hats off that you have kept the from the childhood onwards...you worked well...all human beings are the quality of this memory..but they forgot the how much memory they have...

Shachi said...

Lovely post - I remember a LOT of things and I have forgotten a few as well....but I always remember all the warm people who have come into my life and have loved me.....

One thing about me that I have realized over a period of time is - when I lose a friend (i.e. not keep in touch regularly or I am not as close as before), I never remember the fights or arguments...I only remember the good times....and it happens naturally with me....I really feel that helps me a lot....

We do have short memories and it's important to remember the stuff that matters....

The Rat... said...

Heck!! u caught me off-guard...

yup i remember d first failure i met, d first chocolate my dad got wen i ranked first in class, d first fight with my mom, and many more firsts...

this one brought bak memories of that horrible flight to Auckland...I was on my way to my granma's funeral in NZ...I hated the entire flight cos of the way I was feeling that day. And when it landed in AKL, I felt a sudden and pretty vast EMPTINESS in me! I cannot express it fully. Cos each time I went to NZ b4, was to see my granma..and this time, she wasnt alive.

Keshi said...

ty Shachi!


**I never remember the fights or arguments...I only remember the good times....and it happens naturally with me....I really feel that helps me a lot....

Im really glad that u think this way. cos not many ppl do. I hv noticed that even in blogville, some friends like to DWELL in the bad tings that happen. They cant seem to let go.

Alot of ppl hv hurt me beyond imagination...wrote horrible things abt me in the open...bit me behind my back etc etc. but even to those friends, I extend my love today, altho I was upset at the time. But it seems that these ppl still dwell in the bad times..cos they cant connect the way they claim they can. It was all fake, thats why.

But its always good to dwell in the good times...like u said. It helps us become better humanbeings.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Rat WB I missed ya!

** i remember d first failure

aww u reminded me of it :) I think my first 'failure' was falling off my bike when I as abt 5...but I soon got back up again and became one of the best bike-riders among the neighborhood kids...I always won the races! :)

Zainab Dhanji said...

When you are down and it seems you have nothing to look forward to, that is the time when memories barge in and make u rise up again. Those who say past is mere and is useless are duds! As a matter of fact, Past creates present and sometimes there are moments when we can only afford the costs of living by trading the precious invaluable memories of our past. So i agree we should remember, as much as we can...

Urv said...

Keshi is back! Yayyy :D

Talking To My Soul said...

It's good to forget. But as someone had said so famously: I regret for I cant forget.

I am so late here, Kesh. Apologies for that. I guess, I can be on time now onwards.

**Those who say past is mere and is useless are duds! As a matter of fact, Past creates present and sometimes there are moments when we can only afford the costs of living by trading the precious invaluable memories of our past.

So so true! very well-said.


Some ppl TRY to forget the past...but what they FORGET is that the past is very much a part of them that they can never get rid of.
