Who me?


Blue Sunride

This is the hardest part—something similar is also a Coldplay song I think…..In all probability I am wrong.

A hurried vignette:

I could write about my love for music and books, but that won’t help you anyway. There is, of course, nothing extraordinary about that.

I used to be a really shy kid. Nothing has changed about that, except I am not a kid any more. I used to be a journalist. Now I am not. I realised I don’t feel the necessary thrills that other journos experience when chasing stories. I used to ‘not’ listen to Rock. Now I swear by it. I don’t sing or dance, though I wish I could. I live with 2 angels and my husband and an obnoxiously ZEN dog, who gives me self-actualization goals. I wish I earned more money to be able to buy all books that I fall in love with but life is not fair.

Currently, I am trying hard (stop smirking all ye) to learn strumming the guitar. My mind is like RAM. Things always get erased after sometime. I would try taking memory capsules, but someone I know ODed on them and lost his mind. That kills the whole joy of it. But a short memory for unimportant stuff is great… My life is one big deja vu. People do interesting stuff in their free time. I read.

I am sometimes, paranoid. Mostly I worry. About everything … every goddamn thing. The carbon emmision, bad hair days, too much adipose tissue, not enough sleep, not enough time, how can my dog sleep through most shit, who likes me, who doesn’t, why I worry, why I don’t care sometimes…. the likes.

I have stretched the limits of the word writer to suit my purpose. Only catch is that I am not there yet. I write for a living and because it is the only thing I know to do well. Sunday Mornings, once-coffee-now-tea, terraces, rains, colours, smiles, friends, bike rides, kohl—– pretty much define my choices. I think hard, a lot and all the time. And so I decided to blog. It’s my vengeance on the world.

    Hi
    Your blog, actually your posts, the words you write, they have me hooked. Some of your posts have me reading them more than a couple times. Everyone thinks, spend most of their time thinking, but the power to put your thoughts onto the paper and give emotion to the words is a special gift, which i feel you have.
    Needless to say i have bookmarked your blog.
    Please do keep writing, if there is any other medium where you write, please let me know. If i can i would like to read them too.

    A man’s worth is no greater than his ambitions. πŸ˜‰ Though now, it is more removed from Coldplay.

    Lovely picture of the place you stay, reminds me of Shillong with the clouds coming down to the inside of houses (or at least they used to in the distant past when I was there). Question — the sylvan idyll is great but is it viable? Unless you are Ruskin Bond, I thought the pursuit of work and money inevitably means life in a metro?

    Found a blog worthy of commenting after I don’t know how many years. Oh how I have frowned the lack of good writing on the social media space off late. Please keep those rants coming, they always make wonderful read. I would know that.

    Btw it took me time to realize your gender, I thought it would be a he. Perhaps that’s not a compliment, I am just saying.

    Thanks Sanjukta.
    About the gender bit? Do men write any differently than women?

  32. November 11, 2012 14:07

    You write so beautifully!! I’m hooked to this blog. To every word you wrote. And every detail you felt. This one is a jackpot of my favourite chocolates that I’m going to munch down as I read on and feel the happiness as the aphrodisiac kicks in.
    Food for soul. Wish I could write more like you!

    resounding the philosophical and anthropological barriers that lay in the road of similarity of mind of opposite sexes , it wouldn’t be too presumptuous of me to say that men think differently from women . This difference should reflect in the way we present ourselves ; if not; dare I say;but a ardent feminist will have a soothing deja-vu. And that..blue sunride..is a scary view..
