2013 was a good year !

Why and how does love manage to hit me when I least expect it.
Why does it render me speechless and fill my head with nothing but thoughts of my beloved.
I thought I had gotten too old for this to happen, clearly I was wrong and now all I can do is just let it pass through my system. Not too different from a flu, haha !

"The things I have seen, the places I have been, the people I have known, the houses I have called home, all those will remain. What will not remain is the life I have lived amongst them." - Amitabha Bagchi

When you don't know anything about me and I don't know anything about you , that would make us strangers wouldn't it.


Must be what hell feels like - here's to the 3 year anniversary of when it all began to end .
Goodbye S


If you were losing what mattered to you most in the world what would you do ?

Estranged from everyone I love,
I seem a stranger to myself

Tuesday, August 27, 2013


Do I miss you, or is it the idea of you ?
It has been far too long for me to be sure,
I wish I could be wherever you are.
If only for a while, while I gather what it is that seems so lost to me.
Maybe I will find it in your smile, maybe I will find it in your laughter,
or maybe what I really hope for, is to find it in the little space between our fingers,

I wish there was a way to engineer love

Maybe sometimes it’s hard to know what, exactly, love is.

Excerpt - Reluctant Fundamentalist

My brother had come to collect me from the airport;he embraced me with sufficient force to cause my rib cage to flex. As he drove he ruffled my hair with his hand. I felt suddenly very young- or perhaps I felt my age: an almost childlike 22, rather than that permanent middle age that attaches itself to a man who lives alone and supports himself by wearing a suit in a city not of his birth.

The tragedy of failed ambition

There is great tragedy in being just good enough to get by
but not good enough to be great

Love Freedom Grief

There is one thing that one must try to hold for oneself.
The strength to walk away.

May be that is a big part of the idea of freedom and independence. Big part of love as well.
Learnt it the hard way. Grief is not something one can walk away from, it can only be embraced.

Excitement can feed off of itself, left unchecked it may burst.
