Not Knowing

Flecks of nail polish
Flashes of moods
Long sweeping red curtains
Hanging Chinese charms
Random things in and around
Mixed feelings without a sound
Another movie
Another profile
Another day
Another (?) ... story

Roads I've traversed
What could have been
What should have been
What was

Confused palm
Unknown destiny
Pre-written fate?

I'm standing on a hill top, staring
At the city beneath, lights glaring
How exactly am I faring?
My future, I wonder what its holding

Love and Suffering

I watched a Hindi movie today, after a long time.
Happy ending and all that, but i realized why I started avoiding Indian movies.
I reduced English rom-coms too.

This movie, like most Indian movies and sitcoms seemed to emphasize on the pain that love brings, and relief from that pain as the climax. This concept somehow deeply irritates me. Why does one always have to go through pain, and internal and major external conflict, if they were in love in India? I'm guessing it might be the culture...
Love marriages - yes, they are a whole different category, are a surprising minority in Indian marriages. growing in number, yes. But by breaking through shackles, one by one.
If we were to compare this to politics, then only the 6 major cities have gotten freedom - but the power to govern has still not been given.
Marriages here are determined predominantly by caste, religion, superstitions (and oh, there are truck loads of them - speaking against which would apparently offend God in all …

That Random Moment From My Day Dream

Have you watched a movie and wished it happened to you?
Have you randomly day dreamt that this perfect guy comes along, with a cheesy one liner, and you give the wittiest reply, and hit it off completely?

I have. Tons and tons of times! It's sometimes when I'm reading at a mall, or sometimes, when I'm walking nonchalantly in the park.
Today it happened to me.
I was walking along, looking for a store to buy something. Head phones plugged in, and my hair roughly pulled in a knotted bundle, so all the straight strands fell like a fountain from it. I was navigating my way along the side walk, when this guy sitting on a bike grinned at me.
He was sitting pillion, behind this other guy was wearing almost complete formals (grey shirt and black pants). This guy was dressed, and looked more or less like a DJ. Black tee with white stripes... longish face with a French beard, an iPhone with the head phones wound around it.
Since there was a bit of traffic, I was soon ahead of them, a…

Weblog + Movie review: The Dark Knight Rises !

Yes yes yes ! I've seen it :D
Oh, I had such an amazing day on the whole, that I have to make a weblog-gy post.
[I'll tell you when my spoilers for the movie start, so post that point, please read AFTER you've seen the movie!]

So my day started early today, with my dad waking me for some work at the bank. We got it done pretty quickly, and I opted to walk the short distance back home, so he could go straight to work from there. As luck would have it, my footwear bonked out on me, but as real luck would have it, it did so 5 steps away from a cobbler. Since I had my music, plenty of time and the climate was pleasant, I had absolutely no issues waiting around for him to repair my shoes.

So there I was, standing along the side walk and watching the traffic. Right about then, a guy in a scooter who crossed the road, and drove straight up the side walk. It took ALL my willpower to not laugh at his expression. Though he looked a lot awkward, it turned out that he had intentionall…

Nae nae nae kasumi toeg :)

That's Korean for 'my my my heart bursts'
It's lyrics from the song, I was listening to the wind rustling and happily calmly compiling a rhymey baby poem about stuff I liked. Of course I mentioned rain and thunder and all that.

All the while, I heard the transition from the soft breeze to the stronger rustles to the soft thunder, slow drizzle and the rain. Natures song and poetry, some of the best compositions I've ever heard.

When I find my self almost mentioning rain for the third time, I couldn't resist. I had to go out, at least for a moment and see it...feel it...hear it...smell it from up close. And that's when nae kasumi taeg !

Absolutely love this feeling :)
Hope you have many heart bursting moments too!

P.S: The song is called Jaywalking, and it is a drama O.S.T sung by Sung Joon. Lyrics below!


The moment I first see you, you turn my head, time stops
Right now, I can’t even see if the light’s
green or red
I don’t need anything
My heart j…

Violin in the woods

The calming sound of thunder.
Rustling of leaves and sticks that sunder

People's smiles that light up their faces
Laughter that can light up places

Waking up, feeling fuzzy, towards the end of a happy dream
Finding true happiness in a cone of ice cream

Smelling upcoming rain
Making it just in time for a train

Someone you like smiling at you
Wondering if they feel it too

A friend finding you in crowd
Making someone proud

Waking up to a happy text 
Expecting a queue, but you're next

Knowing someone trusts you
Finding out that what you thought of as a lie was in fact true

A dimple
A crinkle

Almond cake with chocolate icing
Your favourite brand with on-sale pricing

Having a crush
Song of the wood thrush

Finding someone to talk to about your unique hobby
Spending a conference time at the hotel lobby

Soul searching eyes
Burger and French fries

A favourite novel, comfy chair, and hot chocolate :)
Memories of once pretending to be a pirate

The perfect date
Sleeping late

That moment when your celebrit…

Fickle Pickle

I had a dream last night. One of those vivid dreams that you can remember even intricate details such as scents from.

In my dream,
I was engaged to be married in a couple of days. When the dream started, I didn't know who it was. I hadn't met the man. It was completely an arranged by family affair. 
So it started with me finding out, and setting out to see him for the first time. We met at some sort of a huge ground, it was night time, but there was some event going on there. Our conversation was like how two strangers would talk, when they suddenly find out that they are to be wed to each other in a couple of days. We politely tried to get to know each other.
It felt like a long walk, from the park (?) to the area where people were seated. When we were almost there, he said he had a gift for me. At that point, I knew I was wearing my pink watch, and he pulled out that exact same watch from his backpack. He noticed that I already had the same one, and was quite disappointe…


I'm not ;)

I wanted to title this inspiration, but Inspired just sounds so much more awesome doesn't it?

I've just been reading blogs, comments, and random stuff... all except writing.
I want to write a story. A story I already know. But I haven't been able to.
What I have been able to, is to learn more about myself.

I am an anonymous writer. In what I write, there is more of characterisation that identities. I've been writing more of "She"s and "Her"s rather than about people with names. That is something I've only just recently started. Or maybe, I have this humongous writer's block for this story because its about real people, and it is for them, with characters named after them. That should make it so much easier na? That is what I thought too! But no, the thing is, I want them to be able to read it as their story... not a  writer's story, but more as a book of memories... like looking at a video of yourself.

[After this point I&…
