My Burden

You don't have to look twice To see that I am undone But for that to happen There must be a reason For you have forsaken All the reasons to remember The one you abandon That is my burden I found out from strangers What you forgot to mention That love, is surely lost When you beseech affection That is my burden I stand at the precipice of memories long lost Slowly in the mist of time to you, I become no one That is my burden But I cannot let go Like you have done For I am made of love Not easy to fathom That is my burden

Let the Imagination Begin...

I really need to write down all the wacky stories I tell my children before sleep time, for example one is a series of episodic stories called the A-team in which the characters are a Mano, a Doggie, a Genie, a Space warrior/alien, the Monkey and the Owl who is the smartest living thing in the universe and Ali baba... All of them have powers or abilities ... The Mano can't be mind controlled, a telepath. The Doggie is the scientist... Genie is actually the last of his kind of an extremely advanced race that actually not got extinct but ascended to a higher plane of existence. Space worrier is an exiled prince who eventually got his kingdom back on his planet with the help of his friends and so on... In a recent story the plot was that the all of the world's s chocolate cakes started to mysteriously vanish and the culprit was the monster created by jealous fruits and Vegetables who were discarded...

The greatest tragedy of the information age

You just sit there numb, aware of injustice, of persecution, of tyranny around the world but you can't actually do anything about it, yes you show your condemnation and Change your DPs but whats next? Social media has made us insensitive we struggle with this every moment. Look at any social media timeline you see selective outrage selective apathy, and then it's gone trivializing real issues. Our minds cope with all of it by forgetting sooner than it should, even the attack in Peshawar could not remain in minds for long, and here we are again feeding and regurgitating but forgetting, the moment its out of sight. This is the greatest tragedy of this age. We are all the culprits and the victims of this at the same time. We struggle with this everyday to feel powerless to stop any injustice near or far.

Fade out

I have a love/hate relationship with all things old, specially Indian songs, at one hand I love even the things I used to hate and succumb to nostalgia and turn that shit on and as soon as I turn it on I remember why I used to hate that shit at the first place... I guess it boils down to longing for carefree days and those old songs/movies bring back a faded memory something you could just grasp but it vanishes just before you can touch..  like the memory of the taste of your mother's Alo Ghosht and roti.. its there but just out of reach I hate going through this chain of thought cause ultimately me it makes me think of all the loved ones Ive lost along the way and also those relationships which went sour due to distance or time... being discarded by the ones that one cared for with ones life due to reasons... we all have our reasons. but it pains me to think about those who I loved dearly in my life and know in hindsight that I didn't have the same pl
