Sheila Ki Jawani..

You're about to become a part of an experiment. Be ware.
1. Were you named after anyone?
No. My parents like to be different. In fact I dare you to find another person with same name as mine.

2. When was the last time you cried?
I was livid and was almost reduced to tears when someone told me how amazing I am and promised me he meant it.
I think my reaction messed up his 'understanding' of women .

3. Do you like your handwriting?
Yes. I was forced to make all soft-boards and charts in school.

4. What is your favourite lunch meal?
Momos, creamy mushroom pasta, chicken (roasted, tandoori, tikka, kabab, butter, curry, grilled.. you name it)

5. Do you have kids?
I have a wife, a would be husband, many would be wives and a tiny brother who looks up to me and that I bully around. But no real kids.

6. If you were another person, would you be friends with yourself?
There are exactly two possibilities: 
a) I would be best-friends with myself   
b) I would kill myself and be proud that I did mankind a favour.

7. Do you use sarcasm?
Would you leave me alone if I did?

8. Do you still have your tonsils?
Yes, I still have my tonsils, and my appendix and all the other useless organs in my body just like I still have all my small clothes, books and toys. I find it hard to junk stuff no matter how useless they are. YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT?

9. Would you bungee jump?
What is there to not like about the idea of hanging upside down and looking at the world with a whole new perspective?

10. What is your favourite cereal?
I am required to have a 'favourite' cereal? What are you- my mom?

11. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
If I could convert all the time I saved by NOT untying my shoes into money I would be a millionaire by now.

13. What is your favourite ice cream?
Butter scotch, Chocolate, vanilla

14. What is the first thing you notice about people?
Whether or not they possess the art of conversation.

15. Red or Pink?
It has to be the colour of Passion, anger and DANGER. RED.

16. What is your least favourite thing about yourself?
My volatile moods

17. Whom do you miss the most?
RKC. I don't think I would have been familiar with the concept of 'missing someone' had it not been for him.

18. Do you want everyone to complete this list?
Because completing this list is such an enriching experience that if they didn't their life would be incomplete?

19. What colour pants and shoes are you wearing right now?
At home I am only found in boxers or skirts. Yes, even in winters. 
Pants are just too restricting, don't you think? 

21. What are you listening to right now?
My grumbling stomach.

22. If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
- I'll be good as new, always
- kids wont be peeling my cover and rubbing my face on  paper trying to fill colour in some old man's payjamas
- I would have to do no dirty work, yet no crayon set would be complete without me. ;-)

23. Favourite smells?
Wet mud, pertol, vicks, camphor, nail polish remover, chicken being cooked. 

24. Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?
My grandfather.

25. Do you like the person who sent this to you?
It wasn't sent to me. I just picked it from Anta . Yes, without even asking her. Is that rude?

26. Favourite sports to watch?
Lion/tiger/crocodile/Snake hunting their prey.

27. Hair colour?
Black. And just so you know, my heart is black too.

How bored are you?

Scary movies with happy endings.

How on mother earth knowing the colour of my shirt will add value to your life in any way?
Or are you going to judge me on the Shirt colours I pick?

I am just bored and am experimenting.

One of those 'Random Confessions'

A little less dramatic, but close enough..

For someone who enjoyed writing, I haven't written anything in over a year. A long dead and neglected blog is a testimony to that.

It's not because of some writer's block that stretched well over a year. It's not because I lack the will. ‘I’ve been busy and occupied’ is the excuse I give but everybody knows it’s just that, an excuse. Yes, I am lazy, but that's not 'the' reason. I haven’t been emotionally dead for so long either. I had plethora of emotions pulling me in every direction.

I have been livid with anger on numerous occasions, so livid that I cried violently every time I tried writing about it and I have been happy too, so happy that if a genie materialised in front of me right then I won't have known what more to ask for.
I did feel loved, so loved that I couldn't think of a more lucky person.
I felt humiliated, depressed, trampled, crushed and hopeless for days at a time. On the other hand there were days I felt happy, elated, ecstatic, obsessive and passionate.
There were days when I loved every living being on the planet and then there were days when I despised mankind altogether.
There were days when I believed with every grain of my being that the world loves me and on other occasions I believed that I make no difference to this world what so ever with the same passion.
There were days when I went out and made friends of strangers and then there were other when I severed all ties with the world.

Evidently there wasn't a dearth of things to write about. Every emotion that I felt had one common thread, one thing, the only thing that could ever make me write- Passion.
I had abundant opportunities to tell a story that instead of sharing I chose to strangle and push under the carpet.

Why ?
Well, because as I have been told multiple times I am an IDIOT. 
This blog was more than just a blog. It was a promise I made, goals I set, expectations I had from myself. Although I have come a long way since this blog was started, yet, every time I failed to keep those promises, fell short of reaching those goals and meet those obscenely high level of expectations I felt unworthy.

I wanted to write. I wanted it, very badly and so I tried. I tried over and over again and I gave up over and over again. Every time I failed and felt unworthy I marked the occasion by killing a story I could have told.

Now as 2011 inches closer I find myself sitting on a pile of skeletons of stories I killed with what seems like a wasted year, a neglected blog, a confounded mind, two roads diverging in the woods and a scared heart.

P.S: Note to self
Dear scared heart, Please believe. JUST BELIEVE.
Dear Confounded mind, Try harder. You are capable of much more. 'Scared Heart' has a lot of faith in you.
