Scream













Taking a raincheck on one’s feelings
Is a recipe for disaster
Trying to be strong for both of us
Has only made me weaker

World’s greatest armor
Is being in disguise
Only when the chinks start to show
You will know that there is nothing brave inside

 So why don’t you pull that veil
Make me scream
Say those words and
Save me too?

  3. "World’s greatest armor
    Is being in disguise"
    Amen.
    And as you show, it is flawed armor with many chinks. I'd rather scream!

Blue Moon

There is something about Star crossed lovers Rowing silently Through the turbulent tides of Eternal love the glowing full moon their faux compass
You want them to beat the odds Cross the sea To the valley beyond and Have that happily ever after.
So that one day When the blue moon smiles And the stars align I could cross it with someone too.

It's been a week in Pune already!! :O
and believe it or not  - I have fallen in love with this city! <3
or maybe it is just another one of my defense mechanisms , protecting me from shocks. Whatever this is , it has aroused me enough, to write a post! So let me finish this before reality sinks in .
( Side note :

  Defense mechanisms are pretty intriguing . Do you know that I haven't cried a single tear drop yet? My friends think it is some kind of sacrilegious blasphemy from my  part. But hey! If pessimists argue that I have effectively ended one life , I argue back that I have just started a new one :) I do miss chennai . However , I am not going to go gaga over it. Okay I just did . )

So here it is . The elusive list of things I have noticed about Pune and my new life in general :

It is all about comments and reader’s engagement. If a post elicits someone else to express a counter view it has done its primary job. So today I am going to initiate and partake in a ‘fun’ activity with all you readers. I am putting up 13 questions and my answers for the same. You guys can choose the ones which appeal to you and answer the same. The answers need not be long – let’s have some fun with this!


       1)Coffee or tea?
       The classic way to segregate people. Espresso or earl grey? Filter Kaapi or Chaai? Caffeine fuelled mornings or Tea enabled evenings?  Well my answer is * Drum roll *  Coffee! No surprises there for people who already know me. You can take the girl from kaapi but not kaapi out of the girl ( did I say that saying right? I always mess it up!) But I have recently started obse…
