Journey of an acrophobic

My travel gene finally got its share of pleasure. This Christmas I spent at Kodaikanal, a hill station in Tamilnadu. 12 hours journey by car with other 5 travel-freaks. It was awesome.
9:30 p.m. 24th Dec, we started from Bangalore. I was not so excited since the thought of sitting in the car for 12hrs was making me sick. I was worried about how I will control my nature-calls till that long. LOL. And then slowly I forgot my worries because I always like long drives at night. I was more concentrating in discovering the darkness outside. I was sitting in the middle. Wish I had got any of the corner seats. It was very cold also so I didn’t mind much. I remembered I still couldn’t get film role for my analog camera. (I am old-fashioned still). Though I have camera on my cell phone.
It was my mom’s birthday also. I missed being with my family.

It was almost morning and I was half-asleep. Don’t remember when we exchanged seats. I was sitting on the right window. Was trying to open up my eyes for so long seeing some sign of hills in the far away sky-line, but all in vain. My neck was paining also. And then I let myself sleep more. Suddenly my eyes were open and I saw the huge giant was just in front of our car, Nilgiri hills. We started climbing and I shouted “finally”. And then I realised how much I was waiting for this trip, how much I was waiting for some mountain to climb up and explore. Since childhood I always preferred sea over mountain but lately I developed admiration for hills also.

A giant to be explored, holding so many secrets inside; so silent, yet telling so many tales. Never comes to you, yet waits for you to go and talk to it. Pretends to be so serious like an old man, yet full of life like a child. That's mountain.

I finally managed to wake myself up and get lost in the nature. The view was awesome. We could see the waterfalls, lake, and small small towns like toys. The mountains were revealing themselves from the blankets of fog and clouds slowly. The different shades of green, the deep blue sky and the white cloud art in the sky... Romantic!!! that is the word came in my mind. Can’t help being a die-hard romantic. Sudden tinny streams were coming down from the cracks of the rocks and drenching the road. Sometime the signs of recent landslides were appearing.

It was fucking scary for me. I am an acrophobic and I have very awful balance as I feel. I even can fall in plain just like that. I don't need any reason to fall. So I was scared of falling there also. And it almost took my breathe away to look down. and took my breathe away in other sense also. It was so fucking beautiful! I felt I have seen heaven there. One Irish guy we met there who has been living there for almost last 10yrs. Where he stays really looked like a heaven to me and his comfortable movements/walk through the edge of the hill(even through the steep edges) made me skip my heartbeats. Phew. But still I would go back there again I think.

Didn't realise when the trip was over. Freaking cold, awsome homemade chocolates, amaging foods, wild nature... all made me spellbound. I was so lost in it. The sky acted like a painter, changed its graphics every second and played with clouds all the while. Even at night it continued to play the game. While coming back and down it was fullmoon night. The city/villages down there formed a diamond necklace and the lake looked like a mirror to the sky.

And something else formed there in the trip, a bonding. Something started changing my life, may be forever. It left me confused and somewhat happy. But that's a different story. Tell you some other time.

To the special

I remember you in my dreams,
you are sitting behind me, yet so far.
Then from your back I embrace you,
and something in your ears I mutter.

You can hear it if you ever just try,
that I say how special you are for me.
Knowing you don't need it from me I cry,
But still I wish you get everything in your life
and your Bee.

Sparrow, sad sparrow!!!

"Sparrow: I am just trying to keep this conversation alive... I always did... coz I know if I ever stop doing it we are never going to talk again...
Wild bird: I think so"

"Sparrow: hmmm
... so we will never see each other again... right? :P
Wild bird: well i think so
Sparrow: u r too blunt
Wild bird: i am always like that
aint i?"
Sparrow:ok... i will leave u alone from now... will leave it upto u... if u ever feel like to talk buzz me...
Wild bird: enjoy... as u wish...
Sparrow: do u think it was my wish?
Wild bird: i don't know
Sparrow: u will never know....
Sparrow: but i wonder why i leave all my ego when its u... if it was someone else i wouldn't have talked again :((
Wild bird: well and i wonder why i don't leave my ego when i talk with u:P"

Sparrow never understood why wild bird needed to be like that. She kept trying till she could keep this friendship alive. The wild bird was not like this always. They have spent hours chatting online, writing poems, sometime arguing. But things are changed after they met in real. She wondered why.
She thought he might need space from everyone for a while and might be having some personal problem. But she found he talks nicely with everyone else but her. And then she reached the heights of her patience.

She stopped buzzing him. She left him alone in peace since she felt he is no more willing to keep this friendship.
Sparrow hardly mattered to him, so her friendship. Stupid sparrow!!!

And then, they never talked again.

Thirteen "Thoughts"

1. Everyone seems in a need for space from me. Never thought I do bother people so much. So I stopped talking to them almost. Hope they are happy with their space. But if they come complaining that I forgot them or being so selfish to not to remember them they will have my cold shoulder this time. I always keep in touch(always did) but that doesn't mean they can take me for granted.

2. Whatever I try to grab or check seems to slip from my hand/grip. Be it a materialistic thing or relationship.

3. I need my own space. I miss my home.

4. Life is strange.

5. I met 'little bit of love' here in bangalore finally. We couldn't be good friends. Actually I couldn't be his. He was always a special friend of mine. Wish him all the best for his life.

6. Someone who was there in my life for a quite long time in virtual world, this time he is in my real life now. Things are turning crazy. I am losing grip or loving to float with it I don't know. I believe everything has an end so my only wish is that it should be a good ending.

7. Am I growing up finally? I am changing a lot from within. Turning matured.

8. Lots of provocation here. Materialistic, physical. I am learning to live with it.

9. I will never learn to not to miss my brother much. I will never learn to live far from him.

10. Falling in love is so hard for me now. Love was never around me, near to me. I am tired waiting.

11. I don't like to get drenched in bangalore rain. To soothe first you need a burn.

12. I understand the accents of english songs easily now.

13. I believe we can only be there where we could be, where we should be and where we are supposed to be. Everything happens for some reason.

My traveler gene and dancing shoes

Its not even 2 months I am here and I already know places, bus routes, hang out areas, shopping malls, discs, streets, few bus conductor, driver by their faces. Quite fast I am. Even more than that I know trees on my way to office already. We girls at PG hang out here a lot. Or just chat till late. And we all have increasing desire for traveling to different places in near future. We make up plans for them and then finally go to sleep frustrated knowing its not happening so early.

After canceling few trips we 3 from my room( I share my room with other 2 girls... one just graduated and the other one on her final year) decided to go to wonder la( on that saturday. The graduated one (J) told us that it has craziest rides we have ever seen. I was excited so much. And the other girl (R) most probably was bit tensed since she never have any experience of any kind of rides in her life. So finally we reached. The trip was expensive though, but we enjoyed a lot. And as expected R was literally crying for her life everytime she tried any ride. LOL. Most of the time we couldn't see each other's face so didn't know how exactly she was feeling. But when she sat beside me on some open ride then I saw her face. I was laughing out loud. Else I was screaming my lungs out with joy. It felt really great. J is like me. She was with me in all the rides.

Then after coming back we had terrible body pain. That was awful but was worth it. But I was yet not out of my energy. Next day in the afternoon I went to visit Laalbag. Walked for hours in sun there. I loved the lake. And then at night went to disc. Danced till late like maniac. Don't know from where I get all the energies. LOL. But yes... next day I was running out of proper sleep and rest so fell sick a bit. Had to take leave from office.

Seems I became party animal for a while. Became a regular visitor at disk. Have been partying so much lately. Got introduced to a salsa dance-class group and by now we are also considered among them. These guys are really nice and decent people. Always thought party animals are not so good kind. But I was wrong. I love to dance so I love to be there at disc though I don't like much noise. But its ok for once in a while. As long as its not harming my health or work. Among all the discs I love Fuga most though it's the most unhealthy place, because firstly that's the place where for the first time I danced with that group. Secondly I love the coziness of the back corner of Fuga.

Anyways, I love my aching feet making moves continuously be it walking or dancing. I love my freedom.

Life at bangalore!

I have been away from my blog for a real long time. And there are lot of changes in my life I made. I spent all these days preparing for the changes and finally I am happy with it. Changed the job and city and that makes a lots of differences. I have been feeling very pissed and drained about my life so I badly needed the change.

Well, I am in bangalore now. The most wornderful weather I can expect in India. Everyone must be knowing it well whoever has visited this city. And who doesn't know I will suggest him/her to come here once at least. The city is green, romantic and calm by nature. People are mixed as it's a cosmo city now. Different language, different people but yet I don't feel much difference. It feels nice to explore this city everyday. Within 2 months of stay here I have travelled a lot, walked a lot to different places and I found this city is small enough.

Talking about people here, I found local people are a bit weird in nature. May be they are just different that's why I feel like this. I had bad experiences here too but that's not new to me.

I better make some list of things which I liked and disliked about this city. That will be easy for me to express.

Things I liked :
1. Weather, greenery, breeze and everlasting spring. (I fell in love with it)
2. Buses. (travel everyday and believe me its faaar better than calcutta)
3. Music at pubs, disco. (actually got a group to enjoy there)
4. My roommates. (they r best)
5. My office colleagues. (my group and work culture can make u feel jealous)
6. My small space at the PG. (just like me... at the corner, distant from other things in the room yet very much exists among them)
7. The lake at lalbaag.
8. The evening walks.

(people who r wondering whts PG... its Paying Guest I mean)

Things I didn't like:
1. People at bus. (they are weird... they love to stand on people's head pressing their butts)
2. Things written in local language at bus, bus stop and having no translated form. (I often get confused man)
3. Oily food at PG though it always tastes good.
4. The indecent horny dog at PG.
5. Some girls at PG. (specially who bangs the toilet/bathroom door when I am using it.)
6. The road when it rains.(Bangalore is wavy at geographical nature so the water comes down like river through the road always)
7. Showing off people around. (My goodness they always dress like they are going to some party.)
8. Not much life other than going to pub, disc, shopping mall here.
9. People are not bothered about what is happening to other people around. All they can do is to give a stare.
10. Perverted guys are everywhere in this world. So can't blame much.(guys don't take personally)

But apart from all these I made friends here. I am enjoying everyday of my stay here. That's the most important thing.

(I started to write this post long back... now today(29th sept) somehow I finished it.)

My life at large

People say I am weird, impractical, unrealistic. I agree with them. They say I am stupid enough to live in my dreamland. I agree again. But when they say I should be practical, wise and behave like a grown up I don't agree. Why should I change myself? What will I get if I change myself? Won't I lose all the happiness I get by dreaming. What will I get here in real world? Hatred, stress, dirty power game, and enough frustrations of getting old? I don't need them.

You can call me hopelessly romantic. I agree. Life is all about romanticism for me. They say I am not professional. Well I don't want to be. If leaving all the romanticism and always running after success is professinalism I don't want to be a professional. Success may give you ego boost but never can give you that kind of happiness which I get from watching the moon. Or watching the glittering lake water in the afternoon. Or even watching the kissing birds. Can anything else give me that level of pleasure?

The way I want to live my life seems weird to others. I wish I stay awake all night watching the moon, twinkling stars, darkness. I feel I am a part of it. I feel most comfortable in darkness of the night. I hate sunlight, how rough it is on my eyes. In darkness all my senses starts working, I feel, I touch, I smell, I taste, I see. Yes I see too. I see the world more beautiful in darkness, more peaceful, more romantic. I taste the sweetness of cold dark night. I kiss to feel the bliss. I kiss dark night.

What's wrong there if I wish to have a long walk at late night? What's wrong if I wish to fly through the road in the middle of a jungle on a bike. Alas I can't ride it myself. Wish I was big enough for a bike. LOL. To be happy I need to do weird things. Normal things makes me bored enough. The life of Tarzan fascinates me. I wish I could live like him. But I am so much habituated with this mechanic world that I won't be able to live that way either.

When I miss my bus I wish I could jump like Spider Man. And I jump. Jump at the top of the bus and then slide inside. People get scared though. But I can't help. When I see birds preaching I wish I could understand their language. And then I talk to them. But most of the time they get scared and fly away. Poor me, still not good enough to talk their language. Once I asked a squirrel that why he is always in a hurry. He said he is too busy to answer a human. Sad! I wish I was not a human.

Since I'm already a human I can't help all these but I can dream. Whenever I wish. One day I wish to live in a small white beach house in a lonely island full of trees and hills far away from this real world, where all my dreams will come true. Till then I keep dreaming. Please don't wake me up. I don't want to miss a single moment of my life.


Isn't this old night so nice
I hope you can feel what I feel tonight
Little boy's not getting it right
Trying so hard with all his might
Clouds in the sky keeping the sun away
Doesn't mean the sun isn't shining today
Seems something's always in your way
You've got a wide, wide array
Of insurmountable problems every day

Slip away, slide away
Into dreamland
Slip away, slide away
Into dream, dreamland

In your own private place of dreams
I hope you'll find a place where it seems
The road is always straight and true
Wherever you walk is bright for you
I hope you'll remember these times we share
Hope you'll find some comfort there
In the meantime lose your cares
You can go anywhere, close your eyes and it will take you there

Slip away, slide away
Into dreamland

Gonna cherish my time with you
Gonna smile, smile the whole world day through
Wake up tomorrow maybe you'll find
Darkness gone from your mind
Want you to be what you want to be
Don't want you to ever hurt like me
Smiling through the saddest times
Could only happen in dreams
I wonder is it as nice as it seems

Slip away, slide away
Into dreamland

Maybe you'll get your wishes in dreams this night
Because I can't seems to do it here in real life

Mayhe you'll get your wishes in dreams this night
Because I can't seem to help you here in real life

Someday may be...

Someday I will sleep... Sleep in peace... Will sleep in your arms... The warmth I need, the peace I need, I know its there in your arms... And only in your arms... I will hide there from this crazy outside world forever...

And then your kiss will touch my forehead... the bliss of your love will run through my each and every vein... I will sense it in my blood... Sense you inside of me...

And then You will embrace me with your loving arms... I will hold you more close to me... and then I will sleep... a peaceful sleep...

My quest of love, quest of life will end there in your arms.

I am pissed

Today I'm feeling very pissed. Nothing seems satisfying to me now. Specially my career.

Lately I am feeling I'm not happy with my job anymore. Well office environment is fine, and so my boss/best friend. Actually I am stuck here for him only. He supported me with job when I was facing so much trouble in my personal and professional life. But I'm not learning much from my work anymore. Sometimes I even feel I am not going to right direction many be. I love my job which is creative but I couldn't make it success yet. Like I made many designs while I'm working with Sandy but most of them got rejected. I felt so depressed at times. But that was ok. It's a process of learning and developing my skill I know.

But still something is missing I feel. I wish I knew what it is. Here I will try to figure out the reasons...

1. Long hours of travelling makes me sick mentally/physically.

I gotta travel for long hours everyday to reach my office which is very frustrating. Like someday after work I might feel like to hit my home and relax but no luck with me. Can't reach home before the distance kills me for 2 hours everyday. Or else when I start with fresh mind from home for work in the morning the journey ditches my mood. I am pissed when I reach office. Well that's life now. And the worst is the quickest bus/route I could take makes me wait for 1 hour sometimes. Hell!!!

2. The sight of few of my colleagues irritates me to death.

I agree this is the story everywhere. But I worked with others before. No one could make me this sick yet. But I'm so unfortunate I sit beside them only and I gotta interact with them everyday. I feel sick whenever I think of them.
("Give me a break please" *Cries out loud* )
Problem is I can't stand stupid people. And these people are worst than that. And not only stupid but they are sick actually.

3. Not being able to learn from my senior.

I feel bored with my job when I don't learn anything. And its also boring when all you got to learn yourself. I prefer learning others ideas rather than copy pasting from net. And I don't have anyone here for that matter. I learn a lot from Sandy but he is not a designer either. I need to be with other designers to learn.

4. The space at my office.

I always prefer to work/study in a corner or some place where no one can disturb me. But I sit just in the middle of everyone at office. Which sometimes drives me crazy. I hate people interrupting me in the middle of my work giving me lecture on what color I should use, which design is better than this blah blah blah. Come on man... why don't you design then? Take my sit. I challenge you I will do your job given a chance and time i.e. programming, only that I don't like them at all else I have full confidence on my brain. But you can't become a designer all of a sudden dear. Get a life.

5. My hippie nature.

I don't like to stay anywhere for long. It makes me feel depressed and bored. I guess that's silly but can't really help it. I am like this only. Always.

6. Didn't get a long holiday since long.

Every time I planned for it something ruined it. So no luck with me I feel. I need to cut up from everything for at least 7 days I feel. And catch up some reading, music, movies to refresh my mind.

So these are few reasons I could figure out right at this moment.

Some solutions I could think of right now.

1. Change of job.

I doubt on that. I need to handle my home front(mum's operation) now so I guess it will be trouble for me to change my job at this moment.

2. Change the city.

Same like above.

3. Learn something new related to my work or something else.

I guess that would work but I lack the time.

4. Shift to some pg near to my office.

Impossible. reason is same like 1., 2.

I wish to get some changes in my life soon. Else it will be all messy again I feel.

Now my personal life.

Mum is going to go for surgery soon. Then I have to manage a hell lot of things. And considering my office hours I am scared thinking how I will do it. I am not used to with all this house keeping and all. I realise now how hectic it is for mum, and how she has been doing it all these years. It is not easy to be a mother. Specially when your hubby is like an immature kid. That's the main problem you know. I am horrified thinking how I will manage it all alone.

Anyways... that's life again. I will face it too. But the clash between my personal life and professional life is going to be worst among all.

Well... I'm all game for it now. Lets face it too Dear Life.

My ideal match

Peter Pan...
who is my happy thought,
who gives me wings to fly.
who brings me rain in drought,
who takes me to the high.
he will come and grow up,
and be my man...

You love someone else

There was nothing to say
When you pulled her into your arms
Having me watch, wasn't easy
I held my love in deeply
All i could be was just your friend

Then before i knew it
I was watching you love
Someone else that really was a good friend too

Watching you love someone else
Really hurts my love
You don't even know how I feel
The rain will never stop falling
Drifting away like I am feeling

Oh, yea my love

Just like a flash I became your best friend
You found out that the one you really love
She didn't love you at all

Watching you love someone else
Really hurts my love
You don't even know how I feel
The rain will never stop falling
Drifting away like I am feeling

I told you so many things
You wouldn't probly wouldn't understand
I tried to tell you
You knew how i felt

Watching you love someone else
Really hurts my love
You don't even know how I feel
The rain will never stop falling
Drifting away like I am feeling

watching the one I love, love someone else

He is my soul mate

I have been waiting for him all my childhood, all my teenage, until now. I have been missing him in all aspects of my life. I missed him when I played alone. I missed him whenever I was left alone by all my relations at times. I missed him when I needed someone to share my pains. I missed him when I cried alone. I missed him always.

But I didn't know it clearly. I thought I am weird, different from everyone else I know. People called myself a loner. I agreed I'm. I loved to be alone always. I loved to believe I am strong enough to fight the battle of life. But still I thought it would be good to have someone who would stand by me always and who would make me feel complete.

And I found him. He is the other part of my soul I was missing all my life. He is my soul mate.

I don't feel alone anymore.

To my "Little Bit Of Love"

I saw you in my dream today morning. You were here with me in my city. It seemed to me we were enjoying a lot. I was showing you places. And then there was a moment when I was trying to express through some body sign or something(i couldn't gather or remember) that I like you but you acted like an ignorant though you were enjoying and understanding every bit of emotions I was feeling for you. You smiled alone but you couldn't hide it from me as it was my dream(lol).
Well when I am awake I don't feel anything strong or unstable for you. In short I never feel crazy about you. But still I go back to you again and again. May be that is because I never expect anything back from you. Not even a life long friendship anymore.

But who knows what is there in my subconscious mind. I am not worried about it either. Because I know if something is there that will remain and never punish me. Because This time it is different. Different from every feelings I have been through or I have known. I felt bliss and found an endless sky to fly around.

The only thing I don't like is when I talk and you don't. Now you don't give me your silence even.

Now you are like those contented silent mountains for me to whom I can just stare. I can't reach you or share things with you coz you are a faraway friend now. But I don't regret feeling for you. For the first time my silence found an other silence so it will remain there always till my memory ditches me physically.

I will remain a friend forever. Thanks for everything and every moments we shared.

Warm regards,

How can a man know what a woman's life is?

How can a man know what a woman's life is? A woman's life is quite different from a man's. A man is the same from the time of circumcision to the time of his withering. He is the same before he has sought out a woman for the first time, and afterwards. But the day a woman enjoys her first love cuts her in two. She becomes another woman on that day. The man is the same after his first love as he was before. The woman is from the first day of her first love another. That continues all through life. The man spends a night by a woman and goes away. His life and body are always the same. The woman conceives. As a mother she is another person than the woman without a child. She carries the fruit of her womb for nine long months in her body. Something grows. Something grows into her life that never again departs from it. She is a mother. She is and remains a mother even though her child dies, though all her children die. For at one time she carried the child under her heart. And it does not go out of her heart ever again. Not even when it is dead. All this the man does not know; he knows nothing.

Love, as you feel like

Love is love as long as you consider it to be love. That is all that is required. Perception is reality.
You can be happy even if your life is a wreck, and everything is falling apart, as long as you feel like you're happy.
You can be in love even if you have nothing in common with someone and have no real mutual understanding, as long as you feel like you're in love.

I feel I am in love but I am not sure why I feel this way. I feel the bliss of Love often now. I feel so happy with myself. When I watch lovers in any movie or in real life I feel so happy for them. And I feel great that at least I can feel the warmth of love around me. No matter if I don't have any so called boyfriend. I have got many friends with whom I can share my life or my family who is always there beside me. I feel lucky enough.

I love this world now. I love my life and people around me.

I am in love. Love with myself.

"I Walk Alone"

I can't take this anymore
And I'm almost pretty sure
I've been here before
I can't take this any longer
I won't heal until I'm stronger
Strong enough to not be afraid
Of what anybody thinks
Of what anybody says
About the way
About the way I am
So I'll wait until the day
When those feelings fade away
Then I'll make my break

I can't take this anymore
And I'm almost pretty sure
I've been here before
I can't take this any longer
I won't heal until I'm stronger
Strong enough to not be afraid
So I leave it up to you
Yeah I leave it in your hands
Respect your wishes and your demands
But if it was up to me
Honey we'd already be back at home
And living out our dreams
Living out

Everybody and everything I've known
Never taught me how to stand up on my own
Had to learn it from the one who let me go
Now I walk alone, yeah I walk alone, yeah
Living blissfully

I guess you had to step away
To make me want to be
A bigger man, a bigger man than that
I need you by my side
As I take it all in stride
I put away, I put away my pride
Oh I leave it up to you
Yeah I leave it in your hands
Respect your wishes and your demands
But if it was up to me
Honey we'd already be back at home
And living out?

Everybody and everything I've known
Never taught me how to stand up on my own
Had to learn it from the one who let me go
Now I walk alone
Yeah I walk alone, yeah
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk, oh yeah

yaara raaj yeh usne hai mujh par khola
ki hai ishq mohabbat, jiske dil main
usko pasand karta hai maula

Sometime I feel like to disappear. Disappear in darkness. Want to feel the feeling of not being anything, feeling of not living any life, feeling of not being alive.

But it doesn't feel anything with no existence. That's why I stop myself.

If You Think You Know How To Love Me

A breathless drive on a downtown street
Motorbike ride in the mid-day heat
The dust that hung from the desert skies
Run, though we run it still burned our eyes

Oh, yes we can walk on the wild, wild side of life
And our movements traced by a stranger close by your side
And in the shadows of a promise, you can take my hand
And show me the way to understand

So if you think you know how to love me
And you think you know what I need
And if you really, really want me to stay
You've got to lead the way
Yes, if you think you know how to love me
And you think you can stand by me
And if you really, really want me to stay
You've got to lead the way

A reckless night in a nameless town
And we moved out of sight, with a silent sound
A beach that wept with deserted waves
That's where we slept, knowing we'd be safe

Now you may think you can walk on the wild, wild side with me
But there's a lot I can learn, and a lot that I've yet to see
You know you've got my life lying in your hands
It's up to you to make me understand.

A dark evening

8:30 pm, Eastern Metropolitan Bypass. An almost crowded bus is running at its best speed as I could expect here. This bus is very tiny compared to other buses so the crowd is not much pathetic. I got a comfortable seat beside a window. The person sitting beside me is so irritating. He is wearing a full-sleeve sweater and expecting me to keep the window glass open for him or exchange the seat with him. It’s not cold today but still can't really open the window for someone who can't remove his sweater and be sensible. What a Jerk!! Sometimes people are really very annoying at bus/train. I should keep my cool though.

I am trying to gaze at outside. It’s dark out there. I wish I could see some stars now, or at least the moon. City-lights hardly allow me. I wish I could just run away from this city right now.
Suddenly I feel something strange. Is the darkness trying to tell me something? Did I hear my name just now? Is someone calling out my name? Is there someone really? I try hard to recognize the darkness. It’s so blurry. I hear it again.
“Oh I’m coming there.”
“Wait, wait for me please”.

I feel so light, almost weightless. The window is clear now. I touch the glass. My fingers go through the glass, then my hand, then my head… then my whole body. I move towards the darkness. Someone is waiting for me there, there behind the trees, which I see everyday. I have to go past them. And then there is the huge open land, covered with green vegetables. The smell of the soil intoxicates my senses. I feel high. I float around a bit. I suddenly realize I’m flying. I’m flying like a bird. I don’t have my hands anymore. I have got two little dark wings.

There are twinkling lights I can see from faraway places like a diamond necklace. The darkness is cold. I float around but no one is there. Oh there I hear it again. Someone is calling my name again. I follow my instinct. I fly and follow. And there they come. I reached the fairy land. All the fairies with soft, glittering white wings singing a song and dancing. Chorus. They ask me to dance with them. "Its wonderful", I say. "Were you calling me?".
"Yes Swati, welcome home".
"Is that? Is that really? Is it my home?" I scream.

"Yes. Whenever you feel lonely, depressed, pissed and meaningless we have a home for you. Your home of dreamland. Here all of your dreams come true. We are family."

"Family? Then howcome my wings are dark and your are white and so beautiful?" I ask.

"Oh dear! It doesn't matter what the color it is. It matters how strong it is. All it meant for flying and nothing else. Don't you like dark nights? Don't you like black clothes? Then how it does matter? Dark is beautiful too", The fairy says smiling.

"Oh I wish I knew it before. I wouldn't have been so sad ever then." I cry.

And then I mingle with them. I dance. I sing. I fly. I dream.

"Hello ma'am. Come on. Were not you supposed to get down at this stopage? Hurry!!" The conductor shouts angrily.

I come back to the real world.

I see there is no wings at my back. Neither White nor black.

Dream Lover

He was standing there on the platform with his friend, talking. I was walking fast to reach my place where I stand every time when I catch metro. I just looked at him and walked past. It seemed he looked at me too. He was tall, decent looking guy. Sometime when you see someone for the first time and suddenly start feeling so comfortable and start liking the person for no particular reason, sometime that happens. I liked something about this guy.

After 2-3 mins the train came. While standing he was facing his back at me so we didn't have any eye contact yet. Well I am very bad in remembering all these you see, still I can remember he was wearing dark colored shirt and casual jeans, which was pretty decent. He didn't bother much about any fancy or funky dresses which seemed very attractive to me. I sat down there where I sit everyday. He took the corner seat beside the door so that I could see him. I liked that (lol). The train started moving towards the next stoppage.

He was talking to his friend and playing with his mobile phone. It started being a bit crowded too. Few girls sat around me and one was standing right there on my shoulder though she could just sit. So irritating. I was feeling uncomfortable and was sitting uneasy and my face was having that expression too I guess. He just looked at me then. OH MY GOD. I skipped my breath a bit. His eyes!!! That could kill me anytime. His gray-hazel eyes (errr... hope its not his lenses :P ). I couldn't stare at him, as I felt a bit shy. But I was thinking he could be a Hollywood hero any day. He was kind of shy. Never looked around. Most of the time he was staring at his mobile and talking to his friend (yes I was looking at him sometime). Then he closed his eyes for a while.

I always keep looking here and there when I travel in metro rail coz there is nothing to look outside and I hardly get anything to stare at continuously. But I found myself feeling good to watch him and I couldn't stop watching him. I didn't want to stop that either ;) .

Then He looked at me again. I was wondering what was there in his mind. I was falling in love with him, falling in love with his eyes, his cute face and a decent body language. And the clear, pure, decent stare he was giving me. I was just falling in love. I was feeling something really strange, as if I have known this guy all my life. As if I have seen him in my dreams many times before. Those eyes... said it all. I felt this is my dream lover and I finally met him. Then it was time for him to go. He reached his destination. And he left.

I wished to see him again even knowing that this is not possible. I know I will never see him again. But I met him. Sometime that matters a lot.

At least I can tell this story to my grandchildren when they ask me what is falling in love at first sight.

Your Eyes
As We Said Our Goodbyes
Can't Get Them Out Of My Mind
And I Find I Can't Hide (From)
Your Eyes
The Ones That Took Me By Surprise
The Night You Came Into My Life
Where There's Moonlight
I See Your Eyes

How'd I Let You Slip Away
When I'm Longing So To Hold You
Now I'd Die For One More Day
'Cause There's Something I Should
Have Told You
Yes There's Something I Should Have
Told You

When I Looked Into Your Eyes
Why Does Distance Make Us Wise?
You Were The Song All Along
And Before The Song Dies

I Should Tell You I Should Tell You
I Have Always Loved You
You Can See It In My Eyes

Dear my love

Dear my love, haven't you wanted to be with me
And dear my love, haven't you longed to be free
I can't keep pretending that I don't even know you
And at sweet night, you are my own
Take my hand

We're leaving here tonight
There's no need to tell anyone
They'd only hold us down
So by the morning light
We'll be half way to anywhere
Where love is more than just your name

I have dreamt of a place for you and I
No one knows who we are there
All I want is to give my life only to you
I've dreamt so long I cannot dream anymore
Let's run away, I'll take you there

Forget this life
Come with me
Don't look back you're safe now
Unlock your heart
Drop your guard
No one's left to stop you

Forget this life
Come with me
Don't look back you're safe now
Unlock your heart
Drop your guard
No one's left to stop you now

One heartbreak and a little bit of love

This is a story of a little sparrow. A naive, crazy and stupid sparrow. But she was strong mentally. She still lives by the river with her parents and her brother, whom she loves most in this world. Apart from her family she has two loving friends too who cares for her so much. They tries to warn her every time before she gets into any trouble, but she is so stubborn and she tends to learn by facing it herself. One is the wise tortoise, who lives at the end of the river. And the other is the dolphin, whom she never met but still they are best friends. He lives far away in the sea from where they can only hear each other’s voice.

The story started when the sparrow fell in love with a human. The tortoise and dolphin tried to warn her about the man but she never realised that they never can be together and the man will go away one day.

Slowly the sparrow and the man became very close friends and she found herself in love with the man. She loved how he told her about the world and how the world can change into heaven. He showed her so many dreams which she never dreamt before. She loved the man so much that she forgot they don't belong to the same world. The man told her once that he likes a cat and a butterfly too. Knowing everything she still loved the man and she felt the man needs her so much. Then one day the cat he liked went away with another man. He made his mind and said to the sparrow that how much he loves her and he started telling her how their future will be. The sparrow trusted him and started seeing those dreams he was showing her. She felt so loved. She started planning her future with him too which she never did before. She was never into making plans for life. She always accepted life and waited for it as it came to her. She was so much in love that she even ignored her family and spent all her time and emotion on him. They seemed so much in love together. At least she thought so.

On her birthday the man sang songs for her and they kept talking all day and night. She forgot about everyone else out there in her life. She took out her heart that day and gifted him. She thought he is going to be hers forever.

Then the day came finally. The man walked away with the butterfly. The sparrow understood the man was just waiting for the butterfly to leave her lover-butterfly and go with him.

The sparrow was all down with broken heart, broken trust, struggling to survive the grief. Even her best friends couldn't make her feel good enough though they tired their best. The wise tortoise asked her to help him with his work so that she would get too busy to think about heartbreak. The dolphin said the man didn't deserve her love at all and he assured her that he would be there for her till his demise. Soon she decided that she needs to move on in life. She started spending more time with her family and friends. She played with her brother again. They were so much happy to get her back. But She was still not happy as the man still was there in her life and heart. Inside of her mind she was changing a bit. It seemed she never could love or trust anyone else again ever. The horrible thing was to stop the fountain of love inside of her, which was once unwrapped by the man. It was pouring the man all over all the while. It was almost like stopping the ocean.

Then one day she, very frustrated and angry with everything happened to her, decided to explore the world and return the world same thing she got. She started looking around here and there. Suddenly she saw a wild bird flying around and flying high with some similar thoughts and craziness yet so different from her. The sparrow was always scared of height so she never dared to fly high. But she felt she should talk to him. She did.

Everyday she kept talking to him, sharing her views, ideas, and thoughts. They turn close friends in a while. He said those things which she already knew, which was just echo of her own words. He listened to her patiently whenever she seemed vulnerable and said "speak out everything you want... it helps to reduce the pain". He helped her to look at the love in different way. "Love means freedom"... "Love doesn't expect anything, love is unconditional"... "love everything around you... never restrict yourself"... "Love yourself first, fall in love with your own self"... "Love is never true, neither false. Love is love."

But she was never good at playing with others' heart. Slowly she found herself trusting on him. She found herself happy again. She learned more about life from that wild bird. She found herself waiting for him everyday. She thought he is someone special but how could she like him? How could she feel this way again? She felt confused and angry at the same time. It must be something she is mistaking with some infatuation or crush. But still how could it happen? Then she remembered everything she learned about love from him. She realised she is fine now and ready to fall in love again.

She didn't feel loved this time but she felt the freedom. She regained her self-esteem, self-respect. The wild bird never tried to play with her which he could do easily like other male. That made her respect this bird more. This bird taught her how to give everyone the share of the fountain of love she had. He got his share too. And this time sparrow didn't expect anything in return. She was proud of herself.

By the time she realised she could fall again it was time for the wild bird to go. He couldn't be there with her forever as it was against his nature. Sparrow understood its time to let him go. Too much of word made the wild bird restless and bored. He wanted his freedom back and the silence.

She was sad, and confused. And the wild bird was gone. She kept asking what was wrong but the bird didn't have any answer to that. She would have cried over it but as she was changing inside she was already matured and wiser than ever before. She handled the situation herself and accepted it. She never wanted the wild bird to tie with her.

Still now she sees him flying around or flying high sometime and she is happy with that. Coz she is no more a stupid sparrow. She has grown two strong wings like the wild bird too. And the most wonderful part is she didn't lose anyone. Everyone is at their own place where they should be.

She is happy now with her family, two best friends and a little bit of love.

She too flies high now.

Life for rent

"Life For Rent"

I haven't ever really found a place that I call home
I never stick around quite long enough to make it
I apologize that once again I'm not in love
But it's not as if I mind that your heart ain't exactly breaking
It's just a thought, only a thought

But if my life is for rent and I don't learn to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
Cos nothing I have is truly mine

I've always thought that I would love to live by the sea
To travel the world alone and live more simply
I have no idea what's happened to that dream
Cos there's really nothing left here to stop me
It's just a thought, only a thought

But if my life is for rent and I don't learn to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
Cos nothing I have is truly mine

While my heart is a shield
And I won't let it down
While I'm so afraid to fail
That I won't even try
Well how can I say I'm alive?
-Sang by Dido

I don't know why I am so afraid to fall in love again, yet so eagerly waiting for that to happen.
Or I am in love already but don't want to accept.
Confused soul I am, as usual.

Runaway Groom

He smiles as she walks down the aisle...
He waits for her so impatiently...
And when she arrives he stares at her....
With so much love and so much pride...
He promises to watch her till death do them part...
He then kisses her and makes her his wife...
He holds her hand and takes her home...
Makes love to her and babies they raise...
As time passes the 'groom' disappears...
A boring sports-lover takes his place...
All he does is watch TV for sure...
And when the night comes he snores oh dear!
When chores are heavy and babies cry...
He just watches soccer to smile...
When garbage needs to be placed out...
He just feels like its a crime....
When she cries and feels alone...
He goes, 'honey is it that time of the month?'
When they go out, his eyes start to wonder
When he's home, his eyes are oh so closed...
His clothes are all over the floor
And if dinner is late he's so pissed off...
When she whispers 'do you love me' in his ear
He goes 'Do you want something my dear?'
So where's the groom...she starts to pray
Did he after the wedding, just run away?

LOL... dedicated to all my married friends :P

Dream a little dream...

Take a moment...look back at your life...
Did you get to follow your dreams...
Did you reach the destination...
At whichever point you may be now...
You once had the sweetest dreams...
Health maybe,Love,Family or Friends...
Whatever that you may have seeked so far...
Did you get to realise it all...
And when the day is done my dear...
And the night has come to greet...
Do you smile and count the stars...
Or do you wonder what went wrong...
No matter where you are right now...
No matter how small your dream may be...
Remember that in life on Earth...
You don't receive everything you please...
Sometimes dreams just remain as dreams...
As those pastel distant memories...
Do not weep that you did not reach them...
Smile through tears that you atleast felt them...
For what matters the most my friend...
Is if you really dreamed those dreams.

Do you know how much I care?

You are so far away and yet in my heart you are so very near.
My thoughts always go to you wishing I could hold you,
If my arms could stretch around the world,
they would find you and squeeze you and never let you go.
I want you to know how much I care.
Some days you share with me your pain,
and my heart cries for you.
Some days you share with me your loneliness,
and my heart feels alone.
Some days you share with me your worries,
and my mind worries, too.
I know you are so far away but within my heart you are right here beside me
and I miss not touching you, I miss not giving you a hug
that my heart cries out to do.
But I want you to know how much I care!

I wanted to tell that to Shu. I guess he knows it too.

I feared

I feared being alone...
until I learned to like myself.

I feared failure...
until I realized that
I only fail when I don't try.

I feared success...
until I realized that I had to
try in order to be happy with myself.

I feared peoples opinions...
until I learned that people would have
opinions about me anyway.

I feared rejection...
until I learned to have
faith in myself.

I feared pain...
until I learned that
it's necessary for growth.

I feared the truth...
until I saw the ugliness in lies.

I feared life...
until I experienced its beauty.

I feared death...
until I realized that it's not an end
but a beginning.

I feared my destiny...
until I realized that I had
the power to change my life.

I feared hate...
until I realized it was nothing more
than ignorance.

I feared love...
until it touched my heart
making the darkness fade into
endless sunny days.

I feared ridicule...
until I learned to laugh at myself.

I feared growing old...
until I realized that I gained
Wisdom everyday.

I feared the future...
until I realized that life just kept
getting better everyday.

I feared the past...
until I realized that
it could no longer hurt me.

I feared the darkness...
until I saw the beauty of the starlight.

I feared the light...
until I learned that the truth
would give me strength.

I feared change...
until I saw that even the most
beautiful butterfly had to undergo
a metamorphosis before it could fly.

Difference between being in love with someone and loving someone

A good relationship isn't a game you play or an ego trip you take. It is about love and two people. Loving someone can give us the greatest joy we can ever know and it can hurt more than we can believe too. When it does not really hurt when that person did something disappointing to you, but really hurts when you see that person in pain and sadness, then you know you truly love that person. Loving someone means you should be ready to experience heartache and happiness at the same time. That's the reward and that's the risk. Unless we are willing to experience it, we will never really know what it's like to love and be loved.
Sharing love is probably the most valuable and meaningful experience a person can ever have. And there's a difference between being in love with someone and loving someone. It's the difference between a love that's fickle, wild and short-lived and one that's tender and passionate, nurturing and lasts a long time. The first is easy. The second, the one that really matters to all of us, takes work -- because it's about keeping a relationship.
Loving someone takes efforts. We have to be able to communicate with each other. Nobody can read anyone else's mind. We always presume that our partner knows what we think and feel. Maybe in time we might be able to predict or sense each other's thoughts but it's never perfect and takes time to develop.
Getting the chance to love and be loved by someone is blessed. Respect him/her for who he/she is, and not what you want him/her to be. Everyone is pretty and special in his/her own special way. No one is perfect. It is true love which closes the gap of imperfectness to form a smooth surface of acceptance for each other. True love sees and accepts a person for who he/she is. It is also true love which makes a person change for the better.
The power of true love to a person is undeniable.
A relationship needs commitments too. What is love without commitments from each other anyway? It's like principles and values. Everyone has them but they only mean as much as we are willing to stand for them.
The same goes for our commitments to relationships, and the person we love.
"Love is like an antique vase. It's hard to find, hard to get, but easy to break."
Every day everywhere, people fall in love ... but just how many of these relationships are self-sacrificing love, and not just relationships which are formed only for the intense feeling of falling in love? I know hundreds of friends who say the magical words "I love you"... but more often than not, the truth is just -- I am IN love with you. There is a difference between being in love with someone and loving someone. If a person says he/she is in love with you, he/she means that he/she likes you for who you are now and he/she fell in love with you because of the present you.
This kind of love is temporary and lasts only as long as the fairytale lasts. When fairy godmother comes in at midnight to whirl us back to reality, we see the heartache of such a relationship...where both were only IN love with each other.
But if a person says he/she loves you, he/she means that he/she loves you unconditionally for who you are now, who you were in the past and who you might be in the future. When he/she says he/she loves you and really means it, you have to ask yourself if you love him/her too or if you're in love with the idea of being in love. It is very hard to see the difference through logical thinking.
Let your heart guide you. May you be blessed on your soul-searching journey for your soul mate.

If only...

If only I could be the one that you really need
If only I could follow you across the open seas

If only I could hold you in my arms so tight
If only I could lay with you and talk through out the night

If only I could share with you the beauty of the trees
and share with you the gentleness of the summer breeze

Sit with you and listen to the laughter of a child
Sit with you in silence watching creatures in the wild

Listen to the stories you tell of days gone by
Be there just to hold you if a memory made you cry

Sit with you and listen to the chirping of a bird
Smiling as you tell me it's the sweetest sound you've heard

So if you ever find the time reach out and type my name
the dreams above I mentioned will always be the same
If my life was different I know what I would do
I'd stand tall there at your side and cross those seas with you

New year rants

This is new year. Finally! Everyone is busy making new resolutions and planning for life ahead.
But me? Naaahhh! I never make plans or resolutions. Why to restrict life yaar?

But I sometime look back to 2006 and try to count what I lost and what I gained.
I left many people back there. Most of them were so willing to go away. I am glad they are gone now.

What all I did in 2006?

1. I fell in love.
2. Learned politics a lot for the first time.
3. Made many great friends.
4. Joined iSolution which is a great experience.
5. Broke up and survived a broken trust, broken heart self.
6. Watched highest numbers of movies in cinema hall ever.
7. Boozzed for the first time.
8. Let one friend go away coz he wanted to.
9. Got involved with Margam.
10. Ditched the habit of chating and wasting time online.

lot more will be there to add...

While starting my new year I want to say few things to my friends here.
May I will never be able to say it in person.

D... I am so glad that we met and became so close friend. Never had a strong and independent girl friend like you in my life before. Hats off to you. I love to spend hours talking to you. Wish you were my childhood friend. But anyways better let than never.

Sa... What to tell you? You changed my life in every way. It feels great to be your friend and even to stay close to you. You remind me of 2 words honesty and trust in this cruel world whenever I am broken heart, broken trust... Well... I am just wordless now.

Shu... My life support system. Never had anyone like you whom I depend on as well as I trust so much. I feel most comfortable only with you(after my brother) in this world. Lets see where life takes us.

V... I wanted to thank you for everything. I dont know whether you will ever come back or not, but I miss you. I wish at least I knew the reason for that you left. Wish you all the best in your life.

T... Goodbye T. I am glad that you are gone now. Thanks for showing me the real world.

I can't remember anyone else right now... I may update later.
