“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.” –Alberto Manguel

Argh.. I Hate Delays

Hey.. Peeps.. :) Yesterday I reached Bangalore, and I was so much pissed off with jetKonnect for regular delays –as a result of which I missed office yesterday and reached my PG at 11:17 p.m. (to be precise). I was left with no other option other than waiting and anyone could easily read that WTF look over my face, phew! Refund my money was what I was screaming on volume scale zero.

My B'day Cake :)
I had a copy of Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami, yes the same novel I was longing for. Where did I get it from? Good question, my sis gifted it to me on this Birthday that passed 4 days back (yea here is the pic of cake, was yumm). How did she know that I want this novel? Same source you people got to know from, my blog. She hates reading, but sometimes manages to tolerate my prose.

Okay, so I started reading it. The semi nude image of a Korean girl on the cover page must be the reason for people to stare at it for couple of minutes and couple of times. Whatever, I chuck that look. And this was when another text from jetKonnect was dropped in my inbox regarding another delayed schedule. Gawd, will I reach today? –was my question. And I was badly hungry; I could eat papers of this novel.

I reached late, slept late. I was supposed to reach office an hour before the regular time, wow! I had a great day. I hate delays, so much. If somebody ever asked me how much I hate delays –I’d have replied: as much as you hate it biting on the bitter side of a cucumber, as much as you hate alarm clock ringing in morning and as much as when there is a power cut while you are waiting for your favorite episode. Its 09:45 p.m. and now am feeling sleepy and writing this post. Hell lot of work to do, as expected. Gonna sleep.. Zzzz.. Signing out.. may God bless y’all.. :)

Compromise

















Come and stand on my side;
count those missed opportunities,
and wonder why should I stand still;
being a victim of cursed calamities.

Walk with me those untrodden ways;
lost in the shadows of misfortune,
put your hands around my waist;
and dance on that echoing solitude tune.

All this is just a dream;
like those floating azure skies,
could it ever be real or;
its gonna be a part of compromise?

Why I gotta be the one;
whose happiness walks on broken glass?
and bleeds as the wound of expectations;
of which the pain seems not to pass.

Could you wait for me;
till all my wounds turn into scars?
or I gotta join my hands;
and make a wish on shooting stars?

All this is just a dream;
that keeps growing in size,
could it ever be real or;
its gonna be a part of compromise?

The Way I Am




















I am no princess, stop treating like one;
you've been extra nice to me,
is this the way you are or;
is this something I couldn't see?

You are good in all the ways;
it’s me who could't match you,
I wonder what’s there in me;
that makes you continue?

No matter how much complicated I sound;
you've asked me to stay the same,
I stumble to tell who am I;
have you accepted me the way I am?

You've guessed me almost right;
but I still have to figure you out,
for you know the most of me;
and I've no idea of what you’re all about.

You're a mystery to unfold;
wrapped in the layers of secret,
the more I try the complicated it becomes;
making me feel like losing a bet.

You don't complain about anything;
no matter how much I've given you the blame,
this is what bothers me to ask;
have you accepted me the way I am?

Random Musings

Hey.. Peeps.. :) So its been 5 days I am at home. And of course am enjoying favorite food and sound sleep. You actually need a break when you are workaholic and feel homesick. But I am so addicted to work that I kinda miss my work, God knows how moms stay at home all their life looking after family. I need to go out once in a day no matter if it is for a 50 meter walk. 

Well am an ugly duckling these days, I've got a pimple. I remember one of my friend said that if you get a pimple that means somebody likes you, is it? *Shrug* I dunno, I've got two so does that mean two people like me at same time? I know I have huge fan following, LOL. Anyways, I am just planning to take my family out for dinner; may be this weekend. 

My New Glasses, Ain't They Good?
And yes, I've got new reading glasses and got the PDF for Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami. Thanks to my sister for downloading it. Though the search for Sputnik Sweetheart is still on, despite the fact that I found the novel in Crossword today worth INR 399.00 only. 

Okay, my birthday is near and I have no plans yet. I don't like celebrating my birthday, I don't like cutting cake and blowing off the candles. I like going out, have a great dinner and be back with surprise gifts that usually mom and dad used to plan. I am happy that I'll be with my family this birthday and I am so stubborn to make them give something I want. Of course I am gonna ask for gift, that's what am here for.. LOL. I am just thinking what should I ask for? Um.. DSLR? I dunno. *Shrug*. Dinner time, signing out.. may God bless y'all.. :)

Yay, Am Home!!

Hey.. Peeps.. :) Its Sunday and its ticking 08:33:00 hrs in my almost one year old watch. Am at Bangalore International Airport and desperately waiting for my flight to home, thank God it’s on time. I booked JetKonnect economy class and almost fought for window seat. Flight timing is 09:50:00 hrs, I bet if I’ve got cushions I’d have slept here. I woke up at 04:00:00 hrs and it’s no cakewalk and am damn serious.

Well it’s Mothers’ Day, and I guess mom will be happy to see me home. Wait, did I mention “guess”? Um.. as an example of my extraordinary intelligence, I kept my data card in luggage and now I want it back  and this Wi-Fi is also not getting connected. And this person sitting next to me is irritating me by asking “what’s the time?” after every 15 minutes to be very precise and also peeking into my screen.. Darn! And wow! Look at this, my laptop battery is just 23%.  

Okay so there is a match, RR Vs CSK and also KKR Vs RCB. Good, got my dose of entertainment for today. Got to know via LG Smart TV hanging at my left near  Gate No. 05. Whatever, CSK will win the IPL. Yes, I bet. Wait a minute, I just saw somebody reading Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami. I really want this novel. I tried for almost 4 days to get the PDF but didn't get any. 

I judge people by the way they carry themselves, not the way they look like. And here is a lady, around 5’7” dressed in an off green T-Shirt and grey trousers with a funky dead yellow D&G bag. Um.. she must be a manager in some MNC, I bet. And here I am 5’4” okay 5’3” something, dressed in blue T-Shirt and beige trousers with an Ace- laptop bag pack. LOL. 

Airport is a best place to see human races. If you are writing a novel on human races, you must check out Airports and Beaches. I experienced former one, later yet to experience. Okay, got “connect charger” pop up. Signing out.. may God bless y'all.. :)

P.S. I wrote this in morning, posting it in evening due to internet connectivity. ;)

I Knew It

























Whatever is there between us;
but it’s not love that’s for sure,
you are just a friend to me;
and I guess nothing more.

Though I manage to miss you;
dunno what kinda bond we share,
of which you have a clue;
and am also not unaware.

Though I caught you staring;
you pretended like you’re not,
and I guess I knew it;
yea, right from the start.

I've figured you out boy;
no matter how much you act,
yea I know it all;
as a matter of fact.

So let’s wait for who says it first;
for we both know;
and you’re gonna be the first, I bet;
‘cause I know you won’t lemme go.

May be am wrong but it feels so right;
may be you are not the one,
and I guess I knew it;
yea, right from the day one.

Without You




You claim that you miss me;
and I believe you,
I know you might not sure;
and it might not be true.

Life’s been good;
and everything is just fine,
temme how are you?
as it’s been a long time.

Life’s not bad without you;
and am not that sad,
I still wanna live all new;
though something inside feels bad.

Though I’ve got a feeling;
that something is not alright,
and I am done now;
no longer wish to fight.

You’ve got your own world;
and am on my way to get mine,
whatever was there between us;
just seems to fade along with time.

Life’s not bad without you;
and am not that sad,
I still wanna live all new;
though something inside feels bad.
