How is this year shaping up so far? Write a post about your biggest challenge and achievements thus far.

Year 2015 is shaping up to be be a pretty good one. In January we did not have as much snow as the previous years. February was cold, it was not unusual it’s always cold, there was no difference. March  did not come like a lion but certainly roared like a lion as it bid us goodbye till next year. We missed the lamb, I suppose nature was angry with us and did not give us a break.

I found April annoying instead of bringing Spring weather, it snowed  and was unusually cold.

And we have May, it is the nineteenth day and it hasn’t decided if it wants to be a little warmer or continue with the chilly winds. This is the year so far about the weather.

My biggest challenge so far is taming our feline Raphael, for some reason he thinks he must give us a hard time to keep us honest. He cannot be trusted, he comes into my room and starts chewing the covers of my books. Dousing him with water does not do the job, he shakes himself in the wink of an eye, ready to damage anything that comes his way.

I cannot recollect any achievement of mine which deserves mention. I can only say I’ve discovered plenty of snakes, I have to look for their enemy the mongoose.Watch this video.

Isn’t it a good one?

Song: Bengali song : singers Bashir and Anjuman Ara; Posted and translated by ranu

This is a song sung by a  female singer I used to know.She is a Bengali. She had a very sweet and amiable disposition which is rare among those who reach the heights of fame.I’m translating this song to celebrate the memory of a person who was loved by those of us who knew her.

The sky has heaps of blue

The air has some scent

the night is lighted by the glow- worm

the stream has a soft rhythm

Only my hands are empty

but  my eyes are full of tears

My lonely heart has closed the doors of hope

I cannot understand what’s wrong with  me

Why can’t I overcome my bashfulness

I’ve tried to tell many times but could not

I fail to understand how will I say it

How long can I aimlessly drift in this thought

I know not why I have this conflict!
