Insensitivity - an Art!

It was not easy being me!

It’s taken 29 years + 3months to get this far.

I’m speaking only for myself, here.

I never try to be insensitive.

It comes so naturally to me.

I can hurt those close to me without even trying.

It has to be an art form to be able to be practiced so effortlessly!!

… and I’m only getting better at it….

It’s true – I am also quite selfish. I only think about myself. If making someone happy, makes me happy – then I go ahead and do what I do. I never go out of my way to hurt people – it just sort of happens. There are so many threads inter-twined in this whole wheel of my life – I tie some knots as others unravel.

I don’t have a solution.

I don’t want a solution.

It’s not even a problem.

It’s just me – as I am!!

The Arjun I know can be all of the above but sometimes and most inadvertently. He may take a lil time to realise what damage has been done but once he does, damage control begins almost instantly. And I think, most of it happens because you try to make everyone around you happy. Try but not so hard. And yeah do whatever makes you a happier person. Coz you deserve happiness and a lot more. Now dont POUT!!!

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…


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.

We had a mixed crowd and more …
