In My World...

Hi there fellas,It’s been a while since I last wrote… About me I mean. Directly and autobiographically.Truth be told, there was so much happening that I was too exhausted physically and mentally to sit down and write about it.Work’s been taking a toll on me as life professionally does not seem at a great high. I’m doing the same old and trying to kick the boredom out by seeking the novel and un-monotonous. Not been too successful, so biding my time until circumstances are more opportune and bright. As they say, sometimes you just gotta wait… coz there’s nothing else you can do.Did I tell you I holidayed in Goa in Feb? Spent a week there, didn’t wana come back. It was terrific. Having sightseen all of the state, there was little left for me to do apart from relax. That’s exactly what I meant to do. I spent half the week on the bed in my hotel, catching up on sleep and lazing around. The remaining half was obviously spent in shacks and on the beach relishing the sight of the waves and t…

When the going gets tough...

His first love.Hers too.To her, each time felt like the first time.Cougar relations don’t survive, her friends told her.Well, time would tell. It had kept mum for the last 3 years.

The mad kinda love that cannot be held back or manipulated. Miya biwi raazi, but the families objected. Kya karega qaazi. They spent days, months and years convincing their parents.

I’ve never had a freedom to give everything up and just be…”He turned to look at her.She spoke on… oblivious to the fact that he was hanging on to her every word…“Nobody realises that even I can feel weak, that even I can be helpless. They think I can do it all, fix everything, do all that is necessary…”A tear trickled down her cheek.“You have no idea how difficult it is… How I have to swallow my desperation, and show everyone the brave face that they think I possess no matter what the time or situation…”Another tear, and then another… “I have my feeble moments, too. And the worst thing is I can’t even admit it…”He held her hand. The trickle gave way to a river. A river of tears that stung his own eyes.“I can’t admit that I am weak and powerless. That even I am helpless. That there are times when even I, who has a solution for every goddamn…
