I will never whine.............

I will never whine
When in my hand I hold yours;
And in the other,
A sparkling glass of red red wine.

At New Year's......

Someone rightly said...

To see a young couple loving each other is no wonder,
But to see an old couple loving each other is the best sight of all.

How true!

I was at this New Year's Eve party at Taj Residency, Calicut and the party hall was filled with mostly families along with 2-3 school-going-aged kids, a group of socialite ladies, a whacky alumni group of a mumbai college, a couple of couples not-yet-wed and some just-wed and of course some stags who just sit and stare at the couples as if that's their birthright.

The hostess was trying her best to get the people to the dance floor. And guess which was the first pair that made the move?

A couple with silver hair. A couple whose combined age would be not less than 150. Yup, a really really old couple.

They could have been just another old couple you would usually see going for small strolls or just sitting around in the park watching their grandchildren play hide and seek and take for granted.

But this couple was special. The old man was the first one on the dance floor with his wife in his arms. They started dancing with each other as if the new year's eve was their last night together. The way they were waltzing and salsa-ing and jiving and enjoying each other was a sight to behold.

I prayed. If I could be so much in love when I have lost all my teeth and have a mane full of silver hair and have a dozen grand children, I know I'd be the happiest woman on this planet.

My wish for the New Year! :)

Happy new year, people. Have a great year ahead.
