Dad

To all the spiders that you’ve killed and lizards you’ve shooted, how do I express my gratitude to your amazing fatherhood…

The saviourĀ 

It’s independence day and still confused which one to mention? About the chaos? Anthem? Border? War? Saviors?

Well! We just get this ‘Indian’ feel just occasionally when we get to encounter visuals related to them! What about the rest of the time? Couple of years back I was at Wagah border and until they started their routines, I was just having ‘we times’ with friends! Yeah! And after those rituals had completed, I was totally invoked with the feel of being an Indian! That patriotic feel, obviously an invoked feel!! Tho I ain’t anti-patriotic! But the thing is I respect military/ army officials more than I respect India., Seems like you could extract the difference!

And then, I had an encounter with this army official and his conversation about his life-style, life-death daily toggles, being apart from family and such chaotic survival, just made me realise that i am a piece of a useless jerk! And still I feel the same., My jerky question to him was ‘Why would he sacrifice so much himself to protect us and what does he get in return?’ And may be, I unveiled myself to be a jerk!! And his response was ‘This was never my passion! I was intended to do this and now after facing all those chaos, I didn’t want my family and the rest to deal with such chaos directly!’

But what do we do to them in return? How many of you know the names of the highest army officials? Atleast the name of their postings? We rarely do! Despite bidding a salute to what India is, I’d proudly bid a salute to those people who be the responsibility of our well being!!

Pure souls!

It is easy to spot an angel! You just gotta start telling a story in a group situation when people are too busy talking over each other to hear you. Look for that one person who notices and makes eye contact and smiles encouragingly till you’ve finished talking- That’s the angel! Those people are pure and they go straight to heaven!!

Miss books

I used to be that person who reads two 400 pages books a week. Now I carry around a book with me everywhere I go, to try to remember what it feels like to feel that connection within the pages because, I can’t concentrate to read further than a paragraph, nor I remember it, for that matter. Everytime I see someone engrossed in a novel, it’s bittersweet, because I miss what it’s like to get lost in the written world. I just want to be able to read like that again!

Time plays

You deserve somebody who tells you they miss you at 1.40pm when they’re surrounded by people in the midst of their day. Not somebody who says they miss you at 2.13am alone with nothing else to do!

Def(m)ence

It genuinely baffles me that men don’t want women in positions of power because “they’re slaves to their harmones/ emotions” and yet, one of those lines of defence when it comes to rape cases tends to be “it’s hardly his fault! look at what she was wearing! How could we expect him to control himself!” 

The eff’ man!

Once in a lifetime throb!

Though we are not together for now, yet, my pulse dances even at the thought of your bearded cheeks when you use to rub them over mine, even the thought of your warm breath sends chills down to my spine, when you use to put your lips on mine! Ain’t I a kid anymore? You cracked my code boo!

Free love

Every one of us has a weakness. But for most of us, the thing we love the most becomes a weakness. That love which once used to give us strength to fight all the odds now made us vulnerable. 

We fear to lose that person or a thing, we tend to protect it, and subconsciously we even tend to cage them.

We may even suffocate them with our insecure love. We fear others will take our weakness for their advantage. We lose insight. We ultimately make our love, our achilles heel.

But we need to realise that “To be loved is strength, to love is a weakness” is just a myth! Infact, “to love” makes us even more stronger, we just should let our love grow free!!
