All I want 4 X-mas is....?????

X-mas is a merry season to be Merry??? Happy??? yes, and do something good. Also, nobody likes being alone on X-mas....neither do I; But Its X-mas eve and here I am, all by myself in my apartment. A couple of hours ago, I was at my ex boyfriend's house. Well I went there yesterday when I was all alone (again) and totally brain fucked. So I went there and his friend, Kundol was there as well so I had company and all went well....(well = normal); When I woke up, I found out that my ex boyfriend had a movie date with a chick that he called his "friend". Nice! Well, to be honest, I wasn't jealous. I mean really...we're not even together anymore you know and It's just a movie (James Cameron's AVATAR btw, which I haven't watched yet and have been dying to!). So my ex boyfriend and me had our talk:

"I am here...thinking may be things will work out again, " I said, "But If you have something going on with her and feel like it's gonna proceed into something, then you should let me know."
"She's just a friend," He said, "And I am not looking for a relationship with her or with anyone or even with you; And this is not even a date!!!"
"Look," he started again,"I like being single and I like what I am doing right now so I don't wanna be forced into a relationship with you."
"Is it possible for two people to stay in love forever," Ellen Page's voice kept echoing in my head. (The tv was on and they were showing JUNO on star movies)
Before he left, he sat down beside me and said, "Avvan...I'll be back after the movie and I'll come home to you and we can watch some Korean series together, okay?"
I nodded..."Okay"
****NOTE:[ I'd secretly read all the text messages exchanged between him and the movie chick while he had been sleeping earlier and it definitely looked like a date and It was super clear that they were flirting]
He left
Ten minutes after that, I got up....packed my stuff.
Kundol who was a mere spectator until then finally spoke, "Where are you going?"
"Home," I answered.
"Why? Stay...He'll be back in a while."
"It's ok, I have to go...."
"I don't know...."

On my way back home, I thought, He's already sorted out his life and planned things for himself you know. What was I doing at his place anyway? His plan didn't include me and can u imagine me waiting there, while he was on a date with another woman? That's why I came home....It was X-mas and It was time to do at least one good deed which was not selfish! I wanted to be selfless....
So here I am....alone, on X-mas eve and I am thinking....Is something gonna happen now? Now that I've done the good deed...Is something gonna change? Then I realize....I am not being selfless....Instead I am being selfish; doing this supposed "Good deed", hoping that something good will happen to me!
You know...I wish I was a good person by default. I am not....I try to be, some times...It just doesn't work out for me and I wish I could say I was different from the rest; But the truth is, I am just like everyone of you....selfish, spoilt and very very ordinary!
This X-mas sucks!!!! None-the-less
Merry X-mas & Happy Holidays
PS: I lost my phone a couple of days ago...So yup, Loneliness knows me by my name! Merry X-mas again!

Untitled VI

Another morning, I lay awake,
On your side of bed,
Visions I create, Memories I remake.
I curse the dawn that's breaking.
Under the blanket,
My stupid heart aching!
A book on the table beside,
"The Catcher in the Rye"
I flip the pages, I think of You;
I sigh!
I reach out for a cigarette,
It fills my lungs, my heart,
I reminisce the last time we met.

The moments linger,
You linger,
I linger.....
Pictures of you, like leaves are piled in a heap,
I don't know when I fall asleep.

Another morning I lay awake.......

"Do YOU remember all our Love?
Did YOU get back from what YOU gave?
I see some symptoms of, a past
that YOU forgave...
YOU always made me feel alive...
Now, we're in the middle of...
Transition in our Lives...."

For The Movies

The Love of My Life.....For now!

Okay...This thing has happened to me soooooooo many times! I mean I see a pretty face on television or not necessarily a pretty face but If I like a character so much, I tend to fall in love with him and thats exactly what happened today.

I watched 2012 and even though the movie is all about bad Computer Graphic Images and special effects and the script is pretty much like a Bollywood movie...Meaning, no matter what catastrophe strikes, the hero survives it all. The strange thing was, I wasn't sitting there grumbling at the lousy script but I wanted John Cusack (The leading actor) to survive all the ordeals and live because I found myself falling in Love with him!

I know....I know...there are about a thousand movies where John Cusack has been portrayed as Romantic Hero (eg: Serendipity) but somehow, I didn't find him all that appealing as I did, Today.

Ahhhhhh....John Cusack....this panache, intelligent, great guy who looks like he could be the perfect husband (HAHAHAHHA....See, I am even thinking "Marriage" now). I really cannot explain what is this cryptic force that is driving me to Love John Cusack but It's there....

***Note: Someday I am going to write about my strange but deep love for
1. Shia LeBeouf
2. Shahid Kapur
3. Edward Norton
4. ......
5 .....

It's was just the two of us....
Boredom & Me.
Bad Luck joined us;
The cable connection went off,
Three's definitely not a company!
I can hear my cigarette burning,
It's as quiet as It can be.
Now, there's a fourth company,

Yup, that's a pretty recent word that has been added to the dictionary. Bangalored (It actually means when somebody in the West loses a job cos the work gets outsourced to Bangalore or any other city in India) My blog isn't exactly about being Bangalored in that corporate and IT sense; It is pretty much about being Bangalored in the common man's way.

See, I have lived in Bangalore for six and a half years. (2003- mid 2009). I live in Delhi now. Well, I went to study there. Completed my pre-university and my under grads from the city. The initial plan after school was to go to Delhi and study but for some silly reason I chose Bangalore.

This is Brigade Road. I cannot even count the number of times I have been to this part of the city! In the early days, I used to be there all the time. I had way higher attendance in the Barista cafe than my college! Let's not even talk about the number of pubs and fast food joints and the

clubs. (Fusion Lounge, Taika etc) Oh, I have done absolutely that there was to d
o in Brigade road and visited every possible corner.

Then there is The Forum Mall. It came up in late 2003 and it was the talk of the town. No big malls like the Forum had ever been constructed in the city before and the crowd flocked in daily to catch a glimpse of the majestic mall and perhaps find answers to rhetoric questions about urbanisation and the hub that the city was creating. After Forum, a lot of other malls came up. However, it remains one of the most visited malls in the city because it was the first and it was One of a kind!

My Friends in Bangalore...They were the reason why those six and a half years were a blessing. Every parties that we went to were the best; Every shopping we did was memorable; Every occasions spent together was joyous; Every cute boy that we saw was a blessing; Every idle moment we spent, we probably had inherent thoughts in our heads; And then, Bangalore was just Bangalore. I was just living in a city with my friends and doing what any ordinary twenty-year-old does....or at least, that is what I thought until I visited Bangalore last week

BoldThe auto-walas are the most horrible people in the city. (There are exceptions, of course) They not only charge you extra but are so ill mannered and beastly in their tone and if you just ask them to take a left turn, or a right turn or U- turn or any turn at all! They begin to grumble. They ask for more cash. Sometimes they can be diabolically evil as well! They tell you that the auto cannot enter that particular lane or that they simply don't want you to get in the auto or even cos I don't look like a Kannadiga, He is going to charge me extra! Yes, I am NOT exaggerating. etc. Believe me, the auto walas there make Delhi auto walas appear like Gentlemen.

So, Like I said in the beginning...My initial plan was to go to Delhi. So, in a way I guess all those parties and studies and shoppings and the auto rides were supposed to take place in Delhi but then It got Outsourced to Bangalore. Lucky for me, with all the opportunities, I got Outsourced as well. So therefore, I have been Bangalored and I guess after all this, You can take me out of Bangalore but you cannot take Bangalore out of me! ;)

My Identity

After years of blaming others,
After hours of contemplation,
After numerous drinking sessions,
After several moments of realisation,
Nothing changes...
It's not that Iam in a mess

He said....She said...

After 27 months of Love and War, He said some mean things. She said, she couldn't take it anymore. It was over.

After 7 months of separation and loneliness, He said He was sorry. She said, she was ready to try again.

After 6 months of trying, struggling and a little bit of loving, he packed his bags and left. "I cannot say when exactly...But I'll be back," He said. He kissed her, goodbye. She didn't say anything. 

Over the phone, He said, "May be we didn't Love each other enough." She paused, then said, "May be you're right."

Then He said a lot of things. She said she was tired. 

Before hanging up, He said, "Take care, may be should not talk to each other for a while."

She sighed, "May be we shouldn't."

He said nothing more. The line went dead. 

With the dead tone ringing in her ears, "May you always be happy," She said.
