Pritha's pomes

Some rhyme, romance and a wee bit reason maybe, bear with me ?

for you…


Took my first steps as you watched with pride, fell asleep as you rocked me from side to side.

Your patience amazed me the older I got, as did your anchored endurance in the myriad battles you fought.

Childhood indulgences began to mean so much more, as it dawned that your tireless hours were much more than a chore.

Pride of my youth made me argue and fight, and yet through it all, your silence helped me not lose sight,

Of all the things in this world that are good and true, my biggest blessing has been having my father in you…


Author: Yours Truly, Pritha

Professionally have I OD'd on OD ( organizational development ) for over a decade and more . Personally, I am all about making the mundane a wee bit more meaningful and of course a lot more fun in the process. In the course, of course, I very often fall flat on my face, but the joy of getting up makes it worth the "trip" ! Visit, explore, and do write back what you thought, and why you will come back again or never ever; either way I am grateful you dropped by ! Am quite a scatterbrain which is synonymous with being a Saggittarian, so don't take me too seriously; I try not to :) on most of my sensible days. On "other" days, I have more than enough very very well meaning well wishers, who do that for me and land me safely back to earth ! What would I do without them I wonder ? And then I pause, and I often ponder. For all the times I haven't let them be, How on earth would they feel, they were saner than me? Arguably and not so humbly yours... Pritha PS: And yes.. a new mom at 41 is my new identity and I am writing a new chapter with my little girl one gurgle at a time...
