Dear Readers, you may notice the dates of the Blog do not match the Flash Post dates which are in real time. The blog was written in 2009 and saw the light of day 6 months back when my younger daughter discovered it and decided to bring it to you here.

June 8. “I have some really bad news to give you, Button, but I won’t.”

“Why? You must share the good news as well as the bad.”

“But this bit of news is terrifying so I’ll skip it. Instead, I’ll share with you the fact that Dost sent me a different rendition of ‘I’ve Had the Time of my Life’ sung by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes. With it was a small note that said – This is my song for you. Play it whenever you think of me.”

“How romantic.”

“What do you understand of romance?”

“Who doesn’t understand love?”

“This song was originally sung in the movie Dirty Dancing. Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey danced to this number like a god and goddess. The chemistry between the two actors was heavenly.”

“I’ve seen bits and pieces of the movie every time my two daughters play it.”

“And they’ve watched it a million times.”

“It’s one of those movies you can watch again and again and again and never tire.”

“So true. The song is playing in the background. Can you hear it?”

“I can. By the way, what’s the bad news you’re keeping away from me?”

“It’s about the Bhopal gas tragedy but don’t bother your young head over it. At your age you should look ahead and enjoy life. It’s also past midnight. Goodnight.”
