"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?"
****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]
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!

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 reach out for a cigarette,
It fills my lungs, my heart,
I reminisce the last time we met.
The moments linger,
Pictures of you, like leaves are piled in a heap,
I don't know when I fall asleep.
Another morning I lay awake.......

Did YOU get back from what YOU gave?
I see some symptoms of, a past
that YOU forgave...
YOU NEVER WERE EXPENDABLE,
YOU always made me feel alive...
Now, we're in the middle of...
Transition in our Lives...."
For The Movies

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.
The 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.

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.
