Life is the Dance of Existence


Today I was talking with Her on the phone, and She was taking particular pleasure in recounting to me a goof up by someone reeking of sheer incompetence. My laughter did resonate with hers, but somehow I, on that particular occasion, did not feel contemptuous of the person in question. On most occasions I would […]

Residua


The first time I had written this story, it was a cathartic tale. To help me resolve a few issues with myself. I had not written it keeping in mind a specific audience. Neither had I tried to make the narration attractive in any way. Any such concerns would have adulterated the sentiments behind the […]

Ego-Puncture: How not to ‘Propose’ to a Girl!


I have conveyed the existence of feeling of love/quasi-love (infatuation, for the mere lesser mortals) to human female subjects on eight occasions, of which two occasions have been just online. Mind you, all of those instances are not the same as pathetic whining of “I love you, so you must love me back in return, […]

You’re jealous!” He teased her trying to keep his voice straight suppressing a chuckle. “Oh yeah, and who’s he got his cute lips from?” She asked sharply, knowing it was only his provocation and yet falling for […]

It had to happen. It happened yesterday. After three years!


Yesterday as I was climbing down stairs, engrossed in thoughts, suddenly I heard an enthusiastic “Namaskaar”(a salutation in Hindi). It was one of the sweepers, an older employee of the hostel. I had vaguely registered something to be new on seeing him, but the stream of thoughts in my head, had not allowed me to […]

I just like all THIS. So I post all this just like THAT!


Take a look at the two new widgets at the top of my left sidebar. Thanks! Not for looking, but your comments! Of course, I am not entirely convinced by the numbers shown. Especially, TUIB’s low ‘score’! 😉 Whenever I look at my blog, I feel satisfied by at least one thing–comments have largely been […]
