Levels

My mind has a constant rhythm. Its layered at two levels.
One being a sound and the other a thought - like most people do.

Now, the thought occupies the little time. If it does its always about what next and the how to.
The sound on the other hand is all about a track, a beat, a loop or a ambiance in the distant setting from a video I may have seen sometime. What is engaging is that it always plays in the back of my head. Like walking into a room with imaginary headphones on and the speech of people is always smothered by the sounds that are far more attractive.

I also keep a track of what I listen to in the form of a play list. I am sure you  must give it a try.
Its good to live in a world of your own - the one outside is far too less crazy.

Summer days.

Summer days.  April, July may be.  Pokhran, 96
Vacation days that saw afternoons stretch longer than the entire period itself and all I did was look out at the heat blaze past the tar surface of the roads outside. When nothing would move or dare to, these sparrows like school kids after the days final bell would dart between these slabs of stone placed on the boundary wall. The gateway although not aerial would always see them dive down and pass through it. Reminding me of planes in the sky while I trudged along indoors with my set of GI-Joe's wishful that I could have joined them.
Summer days.  June. Gurgaon, India
Days of hard labor when everything has changed from fantasy to non-fiction. The heat is unrelenting and the tar roads barely seem to be a challenge. As I dive through sometimes meaningless tasks trying to find a vent between the melancholy chores that stand on the boundary wall like those slabs of stone, I often hope...  Are those sparrows still flying like they did? Will I …

36 questions

My attempt to do a self-conversation using the Arthur Aron set of 36 questions.
Aren't we the most important person to ourselves?

1. Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest?
My granddads. They left too soon. Outside family, it would be Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Sam Maneckshaw.

2. Would you like to be famous? In what way?
My humour would be stretching it. Anonymity is a gift I am told so, No.

3. Before making a phone call, do you ever rehearse what you're going to say? Why?
Not for the ones I love.

4. What would constitute a perfect day for you?
Brunch by the sea, evening by a fire and a dinner under the stars.

5. When did you last sing to yourself? To someone else?
Last week maybe. High on a new song.

6. If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30-year old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you choose?
The mind of a 30-year-old. The mind is a dangerous place.

7. Do you have…
