Lost, shaken...not broken.

When dreams shatter in front of your eyes, When its so painful you have to lie, Some hurtful words that could cut a stone, An unfixable fight that leaves you alone, When your best of efforts go to waste, When you remember bad choices you made in a haste, When darkness stops scaring you inside, When light falls on your face, it feels uncomfortably bright, When you realize your love is a second too late, When unceasing pain feels like an unfortunate fate,
Its not kiddish to let your guard down and cry,
It may seem impossible, but the next pain will definitely make you smile.

Yes, I know you know it.

Life is a bitch. My only advice to you is run. Run before she catches up with you and bites you in your bum. 
If you’ve read the above lines and agreed (sadly or grudgingly or whatever) you’ve been bitten already, HARD and it wouldn’t hurt to yell some well chosen curses to the wind either. Do it now. Let the pain out. Let your folks think you’re out of your mind. Let someone get offended and yell some profanities back at you. Let the birds fly away from you in shock. Let your boss fire you for going nuts. No… no, don’t. I take that back. Go yell in a bathroom or something if you’re in your office or yell at someone who works under you. Show them that you’re the boss. Be Hari Sadu from the advertisement for if you want to and as liberating as that may make you feel, make sure the Hari Sadu of your life doesn’t get to see your performance. *winks* After all he’s the one paying who is paying you for everything you own down to your underwear, right?
You see the irony here? You c…


In all of the 15 minutes that the old man stood in the rain, dripping water from his shiny white hair, chin and suede elbows, serenity never left his eyes, and amusement his lips. He could totally have passed as an ancient sculpture, just left there in the rains, washing away, melting, vanishing right there in front of your eyes in the haze of the torrential downpour. His stance was hypnotizing; there was nothing different or special at all about him. Everyone around him were enjoying the romantic whether – couples walking hand in hand, friends fooling around, kids dancing around in their gum boots and raincoats, parents sitting on a bench and watching their kids, yelling warnings when the children ran too far, loners sitting there and losing themselves to the rains. Everything was dreamlike; like the scene had just been cut out of a happy movie. If there was something or somebody to look at, you would choose to see the kids: carefree, innocent, thrilled or the couples: blissful and r…


Don't just have career or academic goals. Set goals to give you a balanced successful life. I use the word balanced before successful. Balanced means ensuring your health, relationships, mental peace are all in good order. There is no point of getting a promotion on the day of your breakup. There is no fun in driving a car if your back hurts. Shopping is not enjoyable if your mind is full of tensions. Life is one of those races in nursery school where you have to run with a marble in a spoon kept in your mouth. If the marble falls, there's no point coming first. Same is with life where health and relationships are the marble. Your striving is only worth it if there is harmony in your life. Else, you may achieve the success, but this spark, this feeling of being excited and alive, may start to die. One thing about nurturing the spark - don't take life seriously. Life is not to be taken sincerely as we are really temporary here. We are like a prepaid card with limited validity…


Coz that's the only place where you can fill a booklet full of curses, lyrics and jokes in exams and still get full marks!
Coz that's the only place where you can kiss your best friend's hot boyfriend and get blessings from your friend instead of swears and punches!
Coz its the only place where you can sing like a frog and dance lika an itchy hen and be praised more than Michael Jackson!
Coz its the only place where you don't run behind your father begging for a new cellphone but its he who says its high time you took one!
Coz its the only place where you have a perfect life with a sea-facing mansion, Ashton Kutcher for a husband and blue-eyed twins for kids!
Coz its the only place where fat and ugly is in!
Coz that's the only place where "impossible" is made to hide its face and make a run for it.
Dream! You don't wanna end up regretting not getting to live the life you always wanted now, do you?

Birthday shopping means shopping for all the days of the birthday month...right?

Coz thats what I've done! *tries to not look guilty at all*
Its birthday time for Dandelion!!!!!!!!! 8) I've always been excited about my birthday but this year seems different. Reason? Dandelion has made so many new friends and all of them are so so besharam that she's gonna lose every single penny she has in treating them for being born with no special talent other than making it a tradition to cry atleat once on every birthday!
I'm an adult and there's never been a single day since last February which actually made a difference. :[ I still can't ride bikes. My car is rusting away too. I'm still too young to drink. *winks* I don't even have a credit card. The only thing I've done which makes me feel all grown up and important is DONATE BLOOD!!! *claps claps claps* The fainting and blackouts we won't talk about. Why ruin the proud moment, eh? ;)
And oh, for all those who want to gimme gifts for my 19th birthday, jus lemme know...I'll contact you! …

Isn't it reason enough?

I look at you - laughing as if there's no bother in the world that can ever make you frown, feeling my gaze and looking at me questionably, calling my name, trying to shake me out of my reverie, failing to realize that its you who I am actually into, not an oblivion, not any dream. Its you who has me so caught up and mesmerized. You, whom I never want to forget. You I look at and smile, subtly trying to capture all the emotions and actions that I know will fade one day...just like everything else.
Never ever have I hated time so much. Never ever felt that desperate urge to smash the clock and stop its rhythmic, almost hypnotic ticking forever. I already see you blurring around the edges, making me feel exactly how helpless I am in front of time. Face heated up, scrunched up in concentration not to ruin this perfect moment of bliss, I wonder if I'll ever forgive time again...for helping me through, for taking this away, for making  all these days just a blurry image of a forgott…
