Never crushed...

This was going to be a fiction story...but well. Actually Dreame3r's recent blog got me thinking about this. The one about crushes.

Recently all of us six cousins met up at Chints place [Chints is the oldest followed by me then sid, manu, chandu and ush]. We discussed random things, laughed, bitched and well, had a good time like always. Then someone [I do not remember who!] popped this topic of crushes. 

They all seem to have had crushes at some point of time at least. For fair skinned boy/girl who either dressed smartly or was plain hot. I had nothing to offer. 

"Ummm...I have never had a crush!" As soon as these words were out my mouth, they all roared with laughter. How can I be like this? No crushes? How come? Are you abnormal or what? Nopes. I just never liked smeone that way. Then we discussed how would we define a crush and all that. But I did not fit anywhere. Even my sister has had a crush [she seems wary of relationships yet!] and I am in a serious relationship-happily in love. So something is wrong with me. Blah. 

This takes me back many many moons ago. I had a friend in my building (boy) and we were close. But things went sour when everyone started to tease us. We decided never to talk again. I lost a good friend. I don't think that was a crush either. I was in the seventh grade! Arrrggghhh....well my cousins gave me a queer look and went on ranting about their crushes. 

Sheesh...

  16. I still get crushes! On actors...

    Crushes are one-way adorations, so if you're not into that, who cares?

  17. i walked through this lane, alone, smiling at those couples who couldn stop giglin at each other's ears.. holding hands and those hugs and kisses - some one save this world, i cried.. they were insane, how could someone have a crush? its eitr comited or single, but a crush? i smiled. i took tht turn to the mall only to look into her eyes, the dark blue eyes. we din talk, but her eyes asked me to hold her hands, to steal her from her self! 3 seconds, she smiled. god, i am in love! :)

Mind vs the heart

Standing on the highway, Roads leading both ways to somewhere, I stand still and wonder, Where do I belong?
The soothing lullabies of the green mist fairies call.  With promises to wrap me in the cool calm fog, Holding me in wet, gentle caresses, lulling the storm within. 
The call of the shrill, salt-laden sea sirens,  from the sun-baked rocks, Pull me back To join them as they make me one, in the fathomless abyss of wonders unseen. 
I lament my fragile being,  Born with one heart, not two, Torn between the ebb and flow of waves, And earthy scents in muddy dew. 
Both offer me refuge,  Cloaking me whole in their embrace, Dust to dust, flesh to flesh and soul to soul. 
In this battle between the mind and the heart, The heart but loses steam,  Leaving me stranded on a path to nowhere, never to be seen. 
My mind has been wrought with depression and all things crappy. This is a result of binge-watching a…

#Sorry not sorry

I feel sorry for ‘Sorry’ – such an abused term. When you come to think of it, it is just a word, right? It holds significance in some instance and at times, it is a mere excuse. But we humans absolutely love it as an excuse, don’t we? I use this term a lot; I mean a lot! I think of myself as a kind being, and hence, if I happen to push or ignore (deliberate), I say ‘sorry’. I say sorry for things that may not need a ‘sorry’. I say ‘sorry’ to people I am not really feeling sorry for (don’t read this the wrong way). In short, I say ‘sorry’ a lot like I have already admitted. It is my ticket to moving on, a ticket to redeem myself for mistakes and sometimes, tinged with slight sadness (maybe).


But is ‘Sorry’ the right word? Mean, is it even appropriate? Like they say, first you commit the murder and then say sorry. What is the point of it? I would say nothing. Sorry – the term originated from the West Germanic term Sore that evolved to Sarig, meaning pained or distressed. It is also known…

I Wonder What Ants do on Rainy Days…

Source: Google Images
On days when the sun has abandoned us, hiding behind the grey, moody clouds. Do they sit inside their hills and wonder out loud? Do they stare outside at the rain, measuring the raindrops, letting thoughts splotch all over? Does the earthy petrichor take them down the memory lane? Or are they content with what nature has to offer? It is a part of their lives, isn’t it? They dredge up foods daily, diligently build their hills, even if it is to serve their queen, only to enjoy it on days like this, no? Maybe they do take stock of things, of their bearings. They ought to sleep it off, take a day to rest or do they lament on the lost time?
Unlike me.
When I gaze out, a gazillion thoughts fly by; some worthy of the pen, some so disturbing that I often question my sanity. I like the grey skies though. They seem like textured canvases waiting for me to scribble something. The lazy raindrops wetting the streets below and casting a temporary stain on window ledges bring a…
