Life, or freedom?

What if I were to fade away tomorrow?
Would you miss me?
Would you care that I was dead?
Or would you thank your lucky stars that I was finally gone?

Or would you just not care? Live life with the "don't know, don't care" regime?
Who do we live life for after all? Ourselves? Or the people we love?

Would you miss me? Or would you move on? Would you write a poem when I was gone? Would you cry and press you lips as they trembled? Would you hate yourself for not having said the things you wanted to? Or would you just not care? One soul less, how does it matter?

The smoke shall blow me away, my ashes running free in the ocean and the free air emancipating my soul..

The spirit shall run free, once again!

Listening to: What Sarah said by Death cab for cutie. I love the song! :)

Insecurities and Questions!

Why does your figure determine your popularity? Why does it define your coolness quotient? Why is it that guys only fall for girls who are:
  1. Thin and fair
  2. Thin
  3. Fair
Why is it that someone who doesn't fall in this category, doesn't get that deserving second glance??

Why is it that our brains, our love for life, our exuberance, our infectious laughter and our personality all ignored? Why is it that, something as vain as beauty, is the one thing that matters??!!! That a 24 inch waist matters? And that Kareena Kapoor who looks likes a frail stick, more than a human being, get more attention than say, Konkona Sen; who is a brilliant actress?

My friend had a recent experience wherein a guy said that he would much rather go for hot bimbos than women who could think...

Like WTF!

Why does materialism rule our society? Why can't we look beyond the obvious? Why is it beauty over brains and not the other way around?

Think people think. And be honest! Would you give that not-so-fair and chubby girl a second look? Or would you spend up most of your time wishing you could do/be like, the pretty but vain girl?

And men, please; you are destined to be tall, dark and handsome! Not tall, fair and metro sexual/milky white/ pretty/ dainty, whatever. Get over the obsession to be fair! Get a tan! It turns on more women than they would admit!

For women:

Thin isn't in!

And if you are tanned, you are one mysterious, enigmatic, seductive and alluring chick and at the same time you are not one very white Kareena Kapoor!

Ahh, the joy it brings!

A tribute.. To the good thing in life..

We have played with kittens and you have run from dogs.. We have walked in the rain and held hands.. You have shivered with cold and I have dried you up.. We have spent an evening watching a glorious sunset under the azure sky.. We have met umpteen times over lunch and just as many over dinner.. You sang to me.. I have had my first drink with you.. We have had beautiful and cherished moments.. We have had bitter fights.. We have had issues.. We have reconciled.. We have stood by each other.. We have sat at reclamation and at bandstand laughing at couples.. You promised to buy me a Mercedes E280.. I have argued for an S350.. I promised you an Audi TT.. We have made many promises.. We have kept most of them.. The broken ones are mostly mine.. We have watched ducks at mango garden.. We have exchanged gifts and we have exchanged cards.. Neither one of us brought the other anything for their birthday.. I still have your message promising me to take me out for that one birthday you didn't spend with me.. I have watched you overcome yourself with emotion.. We have stood together through the test of time and through the prying eyes.. We have given each other more hugs than I can remember.. I have cooked for you.. We have eaten so many frankies together.. We sat and watched the view from Kharghar hill.. We have watched the Parikrama concert together.. We have given each other looks that only the other can decipher.. We have teased each other mindlessly with friends of the opposite sex.. You have called me at 1 in the morning to make me listen to horrible and absolute horrendous jokes.. We have stuck by each other through trying times.. We have gone shopping together.. We have had ice cream together.. You have brought me chocolates just to cheer me up (after knowing that I don't really like them!).. You have kept me sane when I was close to losing my head.. You have always been dead sure about people and you have never gone wrong about anyone so far.. We have giggled at the Gujjus and their funny ways.. We have shared too many rides together.. We have admired courage and hated crime.. We have loved each other.. Completely..

I missed you..
You know who you are..

The subtle art of being modest--NOT!

Statutory warning: The following post is overtly feminist!
Listening to: Blurry by Puddle of Mud

The world is a different ball game for girls! You have to deal with comments passed against you, against eve teasing, against harassment, against dowry, rape and what not? But there is a new infection passing around.


Initially it was restricted to Orkut. Any pretty girl, heck; any girl for that matter was plagued with friendship requests day and night. Some lewd and obscene but the rest mostly harmless! Now this epidemic has spread to Facebook as well! Despite their many filters, some people tend to bypass them all and send you a message! Some nice, some worth forgetting and some which leave you in splits! Look at what I got today!!

hi this is benjamin xavier from mumbai....i am a lawn tennis player and i have played for india in lawn tennis....i also have my amusement centre with video games,video theatre and online gaming...i make 1 lakh a day in my business more in weekends...i have a skoda and a santro...i am soon changing my skoda with a bmw my dream car....i am not saying all this to show off just to let you know that i am well settled and i have a good name in the society...and most of all i am a very nice,sweet.caring,loving,down to earth,humble,cool,classy,happening,funny,open and straight forward person...i happened to see you on facebook...and i felt if i can date you...since we dont know eachother lets become friends first and get to know eachother well and see if we can date eachother...if we happen to date eachother trust me i will keep you like a queen and take good care of you better than a mother who takes care of her baby...hope to hear from you soon...take care...if you are married or committed to someone else already please dont reply to this meassage of mine....thank you...

I should be so honored that he sent me a message.
I mean he is nice, sweet, caring, humble, blah blah oh, wait!

He is HAPPENING!! OMG!!!! I should fall at his feet and beg him to make me his! Like totally!

And he has a big car! He wants to shift to a bigger one though! And then he says he is not showing off!! Like totally man! You are so not showing off!!!I totally get it! NOT!!!!

He earns one lakh a day *whistles* and is well settled and has a good name in the society! I would have thought he was asking me to marry him! Not date him!! Hehe

If I happen to date him he will keep me like a queen and take good care of me! Much better than a mother who takes care of her baby... I am still in splits from this one!!!

And last but not the least! If I am are married or committed to someone else already,then I dont reply to this meassage of his! Well well well... Trust me, even if I am not married or committed, I will so NOT reply to this "meassage" of his! Hahahahaha!!!!!!

Life is so good man! So, fucking good!!! =D
These little things make life so interesting and amusing! But to his credit, he isn't lying. I did Google up for his name! He played tennis for India in the Under-16 team! Cheers to life!

Pieces and Graves

Two minutes of the most pure and unadulterated happiness followed by seven years of hurt,
For the fifteen minutes I spent laughing, fell countless tears on the dirt
For all the moments I floated above the ground, I spent several more in pain
The amazing six weeks we had, the rest all were spent in a haze
For the clarity and the hope you gave me, you went away with all my faith
The ten seconds of euphoria turned into an eternity of hate
The one day of longing we had; it broke me along the way
You made me the woman I am and yet you took it all away
For the tender moments you showed and all the darkness that it became
That one kiss we stole together was followed by many heart wrenching screams
The tingling heat you introduced me to, along with the eons of distress
For that one night of love we made, you sent me to my grave....

Tagger's Galore

These are the rules:
1. Link the person(s) who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules on your blog.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them.
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged.

I was tagged by Mithun a.k.a. Scribbler's Inc. who likes the name Wily Banter more than Anindita!! :P

Now, there you go!! :) And, people, this is my very first tag!! :)

1. I got hooked onto cars as a kid. Vivek and I would cut out pictures of cars and stick them up in this scrapbook we had. Sometimes, I would go all the way to town just to look at big cars. Sometimes, even now; I still do!

2. I can't swim. But that doesn't stop me from admiring the beauty and the charm that a water body has! I can constantly gaze into the the sea and not get bored. For hours. Without conversation. :)

3. I don't have a maddening craze for chocolate. I would choose just about anything including pineapple, blueberry, raisins, cotton candy etc. over chocolate.

4. I can't blow balloons. My throat cannot bear the strain. I had temporarily lost my voice as a kid!

5. I can make Ambigrams! (Check up on Google if you don't know what that means!!) =D

6. I often fantasize buying my own island and retiring there with all the books and the music in the world. And friends! :)

There you go. My tag is complete. I'm sure now you guys know me a little better.

The people I'm tagging to complete this tag are Gunj, Isha, Anurag, Mihir, Akshay and Aayushi!!

Cheers. Feedbacks will be super appreciated!
