it's pouring outside

it's 3:57 am
i ought to be asleep
just saw 4 texas vids
sharleen's voice has such soul
there's a girl in my office who reminded me of her

it's pouring outside
i could just run out in the street
it's dark, no one would see
but i won't
like the many things i did not do
ask that girl out

it rained again

it rained again (after my last post)
for sometime
there's a cool breeze outside ever since
what a relief
damn indian summers
can't do without artificial conditioning
i am taking my car to work these days
the office is closer by
but the ac's not working
keep the window open
let the dust sand my face
but the breeze is cooler still
thank god for the rain

(it's 1:30 in the morning, g'nite)

Delhi Metro - Godsend

Delhi Metro has made my life so much easier (and I am sure yours too).  Days go by and I thank God and a certain E.Sreedharan, not to mention countless unknown hands which helped make this a reality.

Something we Delhizens can be really proud of.

Each trip is surreal.  So many faces, characters, personalities, events... a mini-universe of emotions - or lack of it!

Conversations with complete strangers can be quite animated and interesting at times.  Then there are those journeys which are silent, sometimes with the newspaper, cellphone games and music.

things have changed

they always used to remind us
save the html text before making any changes...
well, i kind of forgot
and now i am stuck
the background could pass off for any room in my house
just kidding

change is the only constant
here's to change

its raining heavily outside
i can hear the raindrops and thunder
i can see the moonlight and lightning
if there's anyone else awake in delhi/ncr
he and she would know how much this rain means to us

i ought to be asleep by now
goodnight

it rained...

It rained yesterday
the park was full of water
I tried to give it a miss
but Shorty pulled me in anyway
Makes me wonder
who takes whom for a walk
There he had the time of his life
jumping, splashing, skipping, skidding
Running towards me one moment
then away...
He found a stick and wouldn't let me take it
potter and his wand, i thought
Will you ever grow up?
his eyes say "I will someday"

at the park...

This evening, while taking Shorty out for a walk in the park
I met a little boy, may be 6 or 7 years of age
He seemed to like Shorty, and Shorty likes anyone who would throw him a ball
The boy asked me where I got Shorty from
I told him a friend of mine gifted Shorty to me
My friend was leaving for the US
and he couldn't get Shorty's clearance on time...
'Oh! So you didn't buy him from a shop'
'I guess not'
'He must be the coolest gift ever!'
'I guess so...'
Shorty brought the ball back, again and again...

no friends, who cares, I still got Shorty

I dont have friends anymore
They all left coz they thought I was a bore
I still got money
Just not enough to keep everyone happy
I still have my dog
But he's too old to play, just like me
Bones not that strong no more
When I am gone, all this will be yours Shorty (my dog)
You don't seem very happy?
