The Funniest Thing I've Ever Heard a Child Say
August 4, 2010

Today, princess was very angry with her mom. She wanted to stay in school for some more time. She looked at her mom, and said, “You are diaper, soiled one!”. Well, I felt that was very creative. She really has a way with words. I feel she would make us very proud one day.

your girlfriend needs you more than your best friend
August 3, 2010

Dear “He”,

Just two days back it was friendship day and the day triggered some memories of a fierce row we had when we were in college – on friendship versus lover. or rather best friend versus girlfriend. or more specifically Best friend who is a girl versus a girlfriend issue. Remember your best buddy was a girl – ( let me call her BB ) and how you used to drop everything on hand including me when ever she used to be there? Remember how many times I had suspected you of two timing because of her and how every time you used to convince me that she was just a friend while I was your love. Remember , you had once exasperated tried to explain and drum into my head that I would be hanging around with you forever so I need not worry and I should be generous enough to let you  spend some time with her as well. Well I am your other half today and she too still remains in your life as a friend – a very good friend. So finally everything turned out well isnt it? But you know! How much I used to envy BB! Perplexed? Well these are the reasons why!

Our future was uncertain –  hers with respect to you was not. you both would always remain friends

She could go and come to your house anytime she wanted. Nobody would raise an eyebrow because she was just a “friend”- no such luck with me

She could speak to your mom or cousins whenever she want without being conscious or afraid,  while me….

If you had married someone else , then we both would have been finished as a couple , never to meet each other again, but she could be there forever. She could dance at your wedding, befriend your wife, play with your kids and you both could grow old together reminiscing old days

Every morning – I used to feel how many days more with you. I used to ask myself many a time if my days with you were  numbered where as she could be there with you till eternity.

I was trying to cling on to memories where as she needed none.

And that is why my dear I used to resent you giving her priority. I resented the reason why you gave her priority. I did not suspect you as such. I knew you loved me and you may call it optimism  on your part to believe that we would be together one day and she would be just a friend – a very good friend. And that we had all the time to ourselves in the future for you to be reckless with your – then  present

But remember how tough it was for us to be finally together socially. Many a times we used to weep in each other’s arms thinking about our uncertain future. Many a times we had almost given up on ourselves but one of us used to pull back at the last moment and we would continue with renewed hope. We were the unlikeliest match and everybody knew it. Everybody who were close to us thought so. But some how we survived and here we are today with our princess. But ,love do you realise it could have swung the other way round too. Then? You would have your friend with you even then, but your love would have been gone – with not even much memories to cherish … because you had given it to your best buddy… that chance of creating memories.

Lots of love


Princess joins school
August 2, 2010

It was the first day of Princess in school. She was not so well today, but we did not want her to miss these historic day in her life. So, we dropped her in school. She is back and she looks very happy. I have always seen that kids who don’t cry on their first day of school really become very adventurous in their life. If she also becomes like that than she would really make us proud. We were very happy that she is going to the school. But, since morning we both were feeling very uneasy. Myriad of emotions came to our mind. We realized that time is passing by and she is growing up. It sounds stupid but we also thought that one day she will grow up and will leave us marrying someone very handsome. As if time was suddenly moving fast forward. It was a scary thought. She always should be the little kid, doing naughty stuff and when we get angry hiding under the quilt and shyly peeping out to see if our anger vanished or not. She should always play home – home and disturb her mom while she is busy cooking. While I am talking in the phone, she should always come and ask, “Whom are you talking with?” in her sweet voice and go away without waiting for my reply as if she knows it already. She should always take my towel to make a sari and her mom’s lipstick to make a bindi. She should never grow up and remain the child she is all her life.

10 things I regret in my life
August 1, 2010

(*Warning: I m going through a writer’s block. So, this post might not be something you are looking for.)

I have done many wrongs things but I don’t regret it coz I never thought them wrong at that time. However, something just went wrong or did not just go (right or wrong). I am listing them below:

  1. I lost the ‘Red’ medallion that I won in a contest by Eveready because of a showoff.
  2. I exchanged the books I won in Drawing competition for 2 Indrajaal comics. I should have taken the Pulp magazines, but I got scared to take them home.
  3. I broke the axe while cutting tree.
  4. I got caught while gossiping about my class teacher’s love story by none other than herself. I was almost expelled if I had not used my arts well enough.
  5. The most beautiful girl in the college proposed me and I said no. Although, I was also deeply in love with her. Gosh! What was I thinking? Or, was it sheer nervousness?  (During HS)
  6. I lost the dare to kiss the most beautiful girl in our class in front of everyone. (During Degree)
  7. I lied about point 6. It happened only in my dream. Shit! I suck in dreams also.
  8. I lied to my her for no reason except that she was trying to know if I have a complicated past for my complicated behavior.
  9. I did not kiss her in our first date. I am so dumb.
  10. Last but not the least, I wrote this post and wasted your time.
