The Moral of the Story...

"I quite agree with you,"said the Duchess;"and the moral of that is-
'Be what you seem to be'-or if you like it put more simply-
'Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.' "

"I think I should understand that better," Alice said very politely,"if I had it written down,but I can't follow it as you say it."

"That's nothing to what I could say if I chose,"the Duchess replied, in a pleased tone.

"Pray don't trouble yourself to say it any longer than that,"said Alice.

Paper Umbrellas...

A mushroom pizza.
French fries dipped in tomato sauce.
Silver poured in from the sky to the river.
It rained.The clouds rumbled.And the river went by.
The greens on the ghat swayed in the breeze.
As you like it.Five scoops of your choice.
And two paper umbrellas.A green one.And one pink.
Tiny.Delicate.That opened and closed like Real Umbrellas.
That would not save you when it rained.
Took them home.

How long could you keep a paper umbrella you loved?

At the informal unplugged show at Historya-the freshers' welcome at J.U. History department.The crowd was lovely and we loved every bit of our performance.The only sad thing was probably the fact that Andie da(our drummer)could not play(unplugged you see?).But like we always say...
NeverMind. (lol)

Obituary of a Child unborn

People write stories. I have often wanted to write a story too. There are(at least) two kinds of stories.

You have a sudden pint of inspiration and a plot strikes you in the middle of the night. You wake up and decide to put it down in black and white(or even in colour,now that you have the luxury of word processors).

And there is another kind. It's a story that you tell yourself. And you write it down just to make it easier for you to believe. Like we all rely more on printed and polished letters more than crude hand written notes.

In absence of an inspiration I would have written a story (of the second kind) too. But then, I don't have a itching conscience.

The Trench Within

"You can fall for chains of silver. You can fall for chains of gold."
Choosing could not be easier.
Take the leap.
To Nowhere.

On the horns of a horny dilemma
