Today, as the world observes the centenary anniversary of the loss of the Titanic, I pleasantly recall some of the fondest moments of my life....moments & memories that Titanic has gifted me long after its death.
I was in high school when I watched & re-watched and re-rewatched James Cameron's 'Titanic' and that ethereally romantic movie left an indelible mark on my mind....on my heart...on my soul.
When I was in Standard 8, I had an English prose called 'The Loss of the Titanic' which became my all-time favourite, just like the film.
Titanic- be it the film or the story or its heart-stirring music, it simply takes me, with itself, into a world never seen before. Perhaps, it takes me, with itself, into the bottomless depths of the oceans but I don't mind coz along with 'Titatnic', my heart will go on and on.....
I will conclude with a short poetry which is my ode to it:
"As the waves lick you
The stars above do miss you
Hundred years have passed since you died
But in my heart O' Titanic, you still glide........"
