Really good job . Maybe I know (like)these people, the thing I must say is yes, the guy was right, we need to venture out and face the big waves.And even more we need someone to be with us when we face them.
I am glad she found her Nikhil and I ope they spend not 10 or 20 but a lifetime together , happily.

Great post, take risks and write more :)

@nivi
Yes, I think you do know these people and hopefully like them too! :D Also, I completely agree with you- we do need someone to support us when we take those big steps in life!

@nikhil
Well I'm glad you took the risk- and I hope you do it more often! I promise, I don't bite! ;)

@Princess
Well, Mission accomplished then! :)

@compassion
Thanks and keep dropping by.

@vyas
Very true, very true! Just a tiny thing called FEAR though that stands in the way!

Vedavyas said...

Fear abt wat???

DHIVYA ARASAPPAN said...

@vyas
There's always fear involved when takin risks- that's what holds you back. Fears of failure, of getting hurt etc.

Vedavyas said...

failure znt al dat bad...az for me i cud live wid de fact i failed even after giving my best shot for de rest uf my life rather than de guilty feeling i didnt take a shot @ it...u shud never regret in later part uf life dat u didnt!!!

Anonymous said...

i have always taken risks.... even now...
except with relationships.... and iv never found happiness there either... but then, maybe its because i havent found anyone worth taking a risk on so far!!!!!

anyways, beautiful story!

That was soooo cute! :P
I've been a risk taker all my life. Sometime's it's been worth it, but sometimes it's led me to an unholy mess. But hey, that's MY mess so I'm cool! :)

Fishy said...

hey divya,

Very good write. All risks would are worth, if we dont fail to learn from the results.. be it good or bad.

Its easy to take a failure than brooding over the ' IF ONLY I HAD THEN....'

DHIVYA ARASAPPAN said...

@macadamia
Thanks. Nice to hear that you are a risk taker, and its even nicer to hear that you accept the consequences of those risks, good or bad, without regret!

@fishy

Karthik Balasubramanian said...

In Little Rock, Arkansas, two people who kiss publicly can be put in prison for 30 days; in the same city a husband can beat his wife, but only once a month, twice is illegal..

true or false??

DHIVYA ARASAPPAN said...

@Bk

I saw that on your blog... I googled it too and I got the same law except that it said 'it was illegal for a man and woman to flirt on the streets'. Still very WEIRD! :)

CM-Chap said...

No post for longtime now?

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 ‘WORLD OF MY OWN’ 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.. :)

You can also win an exciting t-shirt by winning the contest which is going on in rambhai.com…. hurry up the contest is from 10 – 24 august…

Cheers,
