Like the calm water
Like the lull before the storm
Like the silence of the night
Like the sound of the waves hitting the rocks
The chaotic mind sees no respite

The uncertainty of things
The craving for the unknown
The void
The ceaseless existence
The questions

Minds finding the common ground
Towards culmination
The accidental discoveries
The longing
Of crossing lines

The wishes that will remain
The magnetic pull
Of deja vu
The madness

The words left unspoken
The revelations
The escapades
The whispers
The chaotic mind sees no respite..

The fact that wishes are being translated bit by bit is an exciting feeling. Not that everything was a cakewalk. Struggle comes in fancy ways too.  There's a lot yet to be converted, in the wishes department that is.
There is this one important thing which has been evading me. Mostly, it stays on the periphery and almost looks like it is going to happen but boom! the bubble doesn't take long to burst. And is it a fact to be rejoiced that you are always the confidante, the one to be relied upon, the one to fall back on, the sounding board?
It takes a lot to be all of that because you are always the good, easygoing one, the one who can't afford to be in the bad books. And they say it takes two to tango, then were you being wrong in taking the hints?
It may be nothing at all, everything being a figment of the wayward imagination.
Folklore says, things are meant to be. So let it be. Do we have an option of adding new dimensions to them?
Funny that the environmental storm feels like a reflection of the internal storm.

You like to do what you want to do.
You do what everybody is doing.
You do what you don't like doing.
You end up doing it anyway.
You do because this is what you want.
You do because this is the right thing to do.
You do what you felt like doing.
You do because somebody told you to do so.
You do because this was your wish.
You do because you want to keep going.
You do because it looks okay to be doing it.
You do because you have to.

* Whatever you have been up to this past one year, my dusky lady!

Must write more. Must make it a point to write. Must ensure that I visit this space at least once a week.
I'm happy with the way India has performed at the Olympics. The underdogs that India is! Really proud. Yay!

This is crazy!
Just see this------->

Yesterday night, on a whim, did this.
Didn't get it? Zoom the picture dumbos! Aaaand look at the follower count (and then the following count).. Geddit? Ok now we are on the same page.
And I am rolling on the couch laughing at the trivial things in life we give so much attention to.
Allow me to conclude on that philosophical shitty note-- Life moves on.

Edited to add: The handle @Fhrooti is back!

Oh! It's 2012 already?

Happy New Year!

So it's 2012 and the world is supposed to end by this December. Geeee!! This leaves us with exactly 12 months and 5 days to do what all we wish to do. :)

The beginning of the year was a roller coaster ride for my family. There was an emergency and I can't thank God enough that it all went so smoothly. That one moment when I looked into my mom's eyes and said, "You don't have to worry about me. Consider me as the son of the house!" will stay etched in my mind.

What else? I WANT a new job- a cool, well paying and a stress-free job (which has a non-existent boss!! :D). No I don't mean a showroom mannequin when I use those adjectives for a job! But sigh! do jobs like that still exist?

Changed my twitter handle twice today, out of sheer boredom! I know I could have spent my Sunday hitting on some season's sale shopping in the neighborhood mall but considering my present bankrupt status, any sort of shopping will have to wait till the next salary. But nonetheless, bankrupt or whatever I feel proud of the fact that my past few months' savings came in handy when it was needed the most.

And finally! I will finally accept the fact (out in the open) that I AM looking for that 'someone special'. Wherever he is, can he make an appearance fast fast fast? *insert shy smile and rosy blush*

Now what? I don't know why but I've just not been able to finish 'The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand'. I'm on Pg 634 and the dialogoues-that-seem-to-go-forvever between Keating and Toohey is so yawn-inducing. But hey, I did like the book. Have also penned down a review too on some book site. Most of the book was finished in the Metro while travelling to work. But you know how bloody chilly the Delhi winters can get, so reading while travelling has been kept aside for another month.

Okay! Too much khichdi in one post. Will meet again. So hungry, man. Have had no lunch today. Need to get into that warm blanket soon. It's a moody working Monday tomorrow..Ciao!
