6 things...

6 things that I don't do any more
Live with the folks - though they're just a few blocks down.
Drop anonymous valentine cards in the Mail boxes of beautiful women
Go on a drinking binge - very characteristic of the Engineering college
Aggressive behavior - that's just the age
Put gel on my head - the receding hairline
Crave for company - I'm not so bad by myself

6 things that I like (MOST) about women
The smile
The maternal assertiveness
Intelligence - although this should not be generalized
Inner strength
They are life givers.. a fact that none can deny
They understand me!!!

6 things that (I'm sure) she hates about me
Switching off and withdrawing into my cocoon
Sometimes I talk too much
The twin vices - Smoke over troubled water
I don't express it - every time (although it's right there)
Not getting her viewpoint sometimes
I can shed tears when in an emotionally charged state - in reel & real life!

6 to dos in the next hour
Say, “I love you to at least 6 people” (Family included)
Cook dinner
Eat it - obviously!!!
Publish this blog
Listen to good music as I cook
Wish she had told me things that she didn't like about me - rather than me take guesses at it

6 People (other than kin) close 2 me (This is the tough one - I hate to choose)

The Men
Vishal Rao
Shabbar Tambhawalla
Shyamal Gupta
John Wesley
Mallikarjun Bhat
Gautam Talwar

The Women - they never judged me!!
Manu Sareen
Ranjini Das Gupta
Sarbani Bose
Mohua Bhowal
Madhuri Bogawat

6 dreams - One just ain't enough!!
Seeing her SMILE - every morning as I awake
Raising a family of 4 kids and having enough for each
Being able to remain true to all that I believe in
Retirement at 40
Running a mile in 6 minutes at the age of 65
Being around on my parents' platinum jubilee.

6 bloggers I wanna tag.
John Wesley - for the things I get to learn there & the lucid style
The gentleman who has his blog at
Mallikarjun Bhat - for being a normal person - expressing his feelings as they come
The Denzil devil - for his youthful writing style
Crazy Sonya
Niyati - for being the Diva
Jolein - I know she writes - but doesn't tell where!!!

If life was a Hollywood film... the action would be intense,
It's actually closer to Bollywood... with the same people and the same stories.

Giving up on real life opportunities to create the iconic twists, the hallmark of great cinema and it's storytellers. If every story had the same ending, how would one imagine the what-ifs of life?

Some stories come out best when they start with an ending. It makes for more poignant stories when you deal with certain characters. There is an element of drama on an unfulfilled love story or unrequited love too.

The mundane is never enough for some of us. The happily ever after is an ending from the fairytales of the brothers Grimm.

The piano man

Sitting bored in the mall when we could be shopping for her gift. The lady is on an official call, so I'm sitting by the wayside observing the man in the centre of the atrium. He's playing a piano. Hence the name - piano manHe's playing a melody oblivious to the sea of humanity around him. No mean task as it is. His tunes run a plethora of melody with no fixed agenda as it is. He looks around hoping someone would make a request - but the crowd treats him like they would an invisible entity. There's pain in the back of his mind and heart. Nothing hurts an artiste more than invisibility. He never knew he'd end up like this playing the walking melody to thousands. His music had always been planned on the good graces of melody with people singing in chorus.
That things did not go as planned, well no surprise there. Circumstance might have been fortuitous had he been willing to bend over. Ever the true blooded artiste, he'd chosen the path less traveled.Now the wai…

All the formative years were spent here, and we did form up well at the end of it. Today, people say that the Campionites are quite snooty and snobbish. Never really felt it at that point of time. We had a mixed crowd and more …
