Contrary to the undercurrents prevailing in the present state of our hallowed nation, I for one have always been grateful to women who are and always will be the better of the two sexes.

The Taxi

Dark night,
Yellow streaks,
Dingy lights,
Empty streets,
Tricky ride,
Wheels that squealed,
Cold hands,
Shivering feet,
A long drive & a small seat.

A conversation for company,
A smile to convey.

Strange brew...

Curdled by sips and stirs…
There is a romance that brews amidst the fusion of brown and white…  Confined by a flavour of sugary dose, a high that should milk more out of the brew master than the one intoxicated… Unless the conversation is as strong as the concoction, there is little to take away…  And if the conversation is candid, it hits you harder than the potion that lies at its deepest base.. 
That is how I like my coffee….

Gurgaon Corporate

Round tables,
Corner offices,
Bottom line,
Top end,
Big picture,
small idea,
Pin stripes,
Ball parks,
Set rules,
Disrupt practices,
Coloured vision,
Clear goals,
Fire exits,
Attractive mixtures,
Bland tastes.

Me too!

So I have these superior friends for Bloggers who have started writing about their top 10 lists of food, places and almost all their exciting things in life. I on the other hand have a new pair of headphones to talk about and the fact that no mosquito bit me in the past two nights of slumber. Blame it on the fact that I slept like a log, but hey - a record is a record!

So I too have decided to share my 10 top achievements of the year gone by. Yep, I had some too!
These are personal and public.
Private yet shared.

Starting to write in Hindi. I know I can and rarely share what I write but then a start has been made and it shall soon become better. Another plug in here being my Punjabi has improved too. More on that later.The SLR. Long time since I planned on buying one and finally I did so. Needless to say I have improved with the mechanics of painting with light.Delhi. What more can happen to someone who loves prose, likes to write and owns a camera. Delhi can make the coldest of souls…

Always is....

There always is a kid who is dreaming..
There are always books with words that make you pause and wait..
There always is a walk that can make things clear..
There always is a quaint corner in the madness of the city..
There always is that refreshing glass of water..
There always are people waiting to surprise you...

I wish I knew, I wish I knew.

And when it strikes you, and I know it will. All you will say is, I wish I knew, I wish I knew.
