A Love Story (Caminho das Índias)

Maya(Left) in forbidden love, she is said to be 'the unlucky' in love

A Love Story (Caminho das Índias)

A Love Story (Caminho das Índias), is a soap that brings Brazil and Indian examining the beliefs and values that the cultures.

It focuses on a forbidden love between two Indians of very different origins, Maya and Bahuan.
We look forward to the power of love challenging the forces of tradition, traditional dances and songs and of course Indian art.

Maya Meetha is a joyful, intelligent, young woman working in a telemarketing centre in Rajastan and belongs to a traditional family from the merchant class.

Bahuan is graduating in the US, works in an American firm, but never forgot the humiliations he suffered as a child because of being an Untouchable. And he is so scared that his tradition will drive him away from the woman of his life.

Anyhow the soap has just begun, all we need is to stay close to our TV and watch every little bit of it. Showing on UBC (in Uganda), 8-9pm Weekdays.

Nice viewing.


Hope you understand

Hope you understand

Not that I did what I wanted,
I was not part of your dream
And nothing could change that.

Being with you,
Is dragging you down
All your child hood dreams

Hope you understand,
Dreams would remain dreams,
But the split,
Brought them to life

Hope you understand,
No shame or regret
No pain or apology,
Did I carry.

Hope you understand,
To love is not to hold,
But to set free,

I just hope you understand.

I won’t do it again

I won’t do it again

Am sorry,
So I say now and then,
I wish I meant it,
Even for one day.

Every time I hurt myself I swear,
“I won’t do this again,
I have learnt my lesson”

The next day comes,
I do it all over again,
Crashing myself to pieces

I cry like the 1st time,
Claiming to have learnt,
Saying sorry,
And promising
“I won’t do it again”

Without you

Without you

Life seems stagnant
Nothing is good enough
to make me smile

Without you I can’t find
Purpose for my life
Or hope for tomorrow

Without you,
Food losses test,
I feel empty,
And so lonely.

I miss you darling,
Come home soon,
For without you
I’m so restless.

I wish I was not his best friend

I wish I was not his best friend

I wish I was not the one
He calls when he is trouble
seeking for help

I wish I was not the one
He visits with his casual shirt,
no perfume, or
before he brushes his teeth

I wish I was not the one
He tells everything about his life

I wish I was not the one
Who has to understand
his weaknesses.

I wish I was not the one
He calls his best friend/buddy/pal

I wish I was the one
He acts perfect with

I wish I was the one
He pulls his best shirt,
fragrance and smile

I wish I was the one
He tells nice thing, takes out,
buys flowers and chocolate

I wish I was not his best friend,
But rather he woman he loves.

A New Song

A New Song

I feel a new song in my heart,
A song of thanks giving
And praises, to only you my lord.

All that I am,
I owe to you,
And all I have
You have provided
Unto me.

Sorry for the lost times,
When I did not appreciate you

Sorry for the times
I have praised myself over you
Thought of;
Am good, smart, powerful
I deserved it,
I have earned it,
And filled myself up with pride.

The true colors of love

The true colors of love

What’s the color of love?
Red, green, Pink, Yellow,
May be the rainbow

We buy Roses, Chocolate, and Jewelry
In the name of love,
With a sweet beautiful card.

Yet remained selfish, Irritable,
Not willing to let go of the ill manners,
Or even forgive those who hurt us.

When you say love,
I want to see truth,
Patience, Kindness,
Faithfulness, Forgiveness
and perseverance

For those are the
true colors of love.
