I was moving about in my room one day, sipping tea and discusing about work and study with a friend when she laid her eyes on my typewriter. At first amazed at my collection and love for antique things, she came up with the idea of typing out letters and building a network of buyers who loved writing. At first the idea sounded a little vague because in the times of social media who would want to write a letter to family or friend unlike some jugheads like me. On dwelling deep into the concept we decided to run a poll on Instagram that would invite response on the idea of receiving a letter, and to my astonishment the response was in support of the idea and thats where ReconnectDrive sprouted. Initially just the two of us worked on a few concepts, shared with a few friends and when we sent in the first lot of free letters to old friends and colleagues, the response we received was heart warming. We went a step further and added another friend to the writing team and thats how we typed and spread love. Old friends united, people placed orders for Rakhi and Diwali , buddies were invited over birthday parties and the typing went on. Some months later we introduced the concept of typed postcards which too became a hit. Writing, typing and reconnecting with lost friends the events kept moving forward and Reconnect completed a year this month.
The love for letters should never end, social media can never replace the charm of musk fragranced letters and one would drown in life without friends and family. Reconnect is all about love, letters, family, friends and expression.Its all about three things: live, write and reconnect!
I thought you had left
to never return
Not even in memory
I had gathered my bits
opened those window panes
to let some happy change walk in
Just to realise one day
That the same conversation crop up
just those familiar words
from where it all fell apart
The only thing different was
this time it wasn’t with you
Those things are falling apart again…… maybe
I’ll still hold onto the anchor
because I can’t let this one go or
let you ruin me again!
I lay still,unaware of the world around me .The sorrow within me withdraws me from the world outside .I look out from the window to see the setting sun and hear some hymns on the speaker in the park .But this also fails to provide peace. I feel lost , the nature i would always turn to during my low days doesn’t seem comforting . The books i would turn to for care lie dead on the shelves . Everything seems lost.
I long struggle coming up is going to be really tough for me but i will have to leave my mark and for that i need to work hard . But WORK !! that is a gone thing now . I hardly sit up to eat or read leave aside work hard . I feel trapped in my own life just waiting for one silver lining to bring in joy in my life . Nothing seems to confort me now .. I don’t know what is pulling me away from all that i once loved . Maybe these are the low days of my life but the hope still remains and i will fight and won’t give up for every cloud has a silver lining and mine will appear super soon..!!🌸
i wish you were alive
we would run around in the meadows
i would take you by my hand
make you take your first step
clap at your success
pillow fight day night
share my deepest secret
confess my biggest fears
protect you from the worst
keep you safe under my arms
love you and never let you fly away
look into your eyes everytime i felt lost
however this was only possible
if you were alive …
but today i just look up at the stars
try to find you lil one…!!!!
I Love you .. I miss you!!
At about 01:30 a.m ,when i am unable to put myself to sleep, I stare at the ceiling, wondering about the various relationships we are binded to. Isn’t it shocking to know how WE as a single unit deal with so many people around us. Smiling at each other even when agony fills the core of our heart , laughing together even when our hearts are full of hatred for one another, listening to each other peacefully even when we know that we are lying to one another.
How are we able to fake our feelings so easily.?Its because human beings have become like the devil, who has a mask without a face. Our identity has gone missing . We have lost our true self and are running towards killing one another, trying to pull down each other just to draw a veil over our own fallacy . The rat race to be at the first place in life has taken us away from morality .
We all need to look within oneself to sort out the amount of chaos developing in our mind and clean the filth of age old hatred embedded in our heart. We should learn to embrace one another with open arms and start a healthy relation with everyone around to get devoid of evils like hatred , betrayal and falsehood.
Don’t let the stains of strained relationships spoil the beauty of the cloth of human life.
We must learn to forgive and forget. Learn to take a step forward and sort out the tensions in life rather than loose our relationship . Be positive , be happy and make others happy!! SPREAD LOVE
