"Lose Yourself"

"Look,If you had...
one shot...or...
one opportunity...
to seize everything you ever wanted...
One moment...
Would you capture it...
or just let it slip?"


I tried to capture...

Maybe it was right! Maybe not!
but then... it was just ONE opportunity knocking incessantly!

Ah well... this is a self-consolation!

Singing-bathroom singing, in public holding a mike, in a group, antakshari, alone, humming- anyway!
collecting little nothings! paper notes, greeting cards, stones, shells, pictures, old lens cases, etc! :D I'm a biiiig hoarder! :P Of memories! :)
rainy nights when it's nice and chilly and I snuggle under the warm quilt and snooze.. tossing all cares to the wind and drowning myself in some airy dreams! hmmmmmmmmmmm :)
typing random thoughts into my mobile's notebook and re-reading them at some idle hour!
My million 'books to write in' that I have and where I scribbl my 'trish-trash'!
Those lovely long dreamy walks to my old office in Anna Nagar. The share auto rides, the train rides, the crowd, the silence, the music plugged in my ears, Durga sweets, Pazhamudircholai Pani pooris, ANNA NAGAR! I miss Anna Nagar! :(
Sitting/Standing in a second hand/any bookshop,sniffing the tales of a million books and their heady fragrances!Aaaah! And to buy them! :)

Stepping Down...

Rahul Dravid stepping down as Captain of Indian Cricket came as an absolute shock to me!
Whatever his reason maybe, it leaves me sad and disappointed that someone, whose appointment as captain made me jubilant-ecstatic-giddy with happiness, is no more going to continue to provide me the thrills of watching him captain my country!

Here's to my Rahul Bhaiyya- someone I consider one of the best ever captains and who has, is and always will be my most favurite cricketer in the world- GOOD LUCK! will miss you as captain! :(
