To Move on ...

I remember that summer day
Can’t say with fondness or not
With your skin glowing in the sun
In the shadow of your beauty, I was caught.

I remember that Rainy day
When our love had begun to blossom
When we took all those promises
Who knew it would account for some.

I remember that winter morning
When you said “Let’s end this, dear”
Swords went through my heart girl
I really couldn’t bear that to hear

I remember that night of spring
When you called up, don’t know why?
I was already in a cocoon my dear
I couldn’t even properly cry.

It’s summer again my dear
But now you are no where near
the cocoon’s broken, the love is gone
For I have decided to move on.

~~ Only If Moving on was that easy for some :P ~~

Listening to:-> Soniyo from Raaz-2
Beautifully Written and sung song.....
Neeraj Shridhar sings this portion beautifully at the beginning and at the end....

"Baby, come stand by my side

Come and be my guiding light …

I’ll be what you want me to be

I’ll give all my love in whole of my life Baby….

Come and be my guiding light"

"Tu dede mera saath, thaam le haath mein haath
Chahe jo bhi ho baat, tu bas de de mera saath" :) ...

Contrasting song ain't it..To the poem I have Written :D... But I like the song and the poem DOES NOT reflect my mental state :P

Arun, Sudha and Santosh were the best of friends. They always took each other’s advice or suggestions before they took any Important decision in their lives. The whole class envied the trio who always came in the top 3 out of which Sudha always tookthe top honor of the class. In the days gone by however she had developed a liking for arun and so had he.

One day, the H.O.D of the department called santosh who was the Class Representative (C.R) and informed him that their class was selected for an industrial Visit to Goa. Santosh broke the news and the whole class erupted with joy as they had waited forthis for a whole year. And so there they were, the whole class, enjoying the waves and sand of the Baga beach when suddenly the Professor asked “Hey Anybody seen santosh”?? ….No Sir. He was with us but don’t know where he is now.Santosh had gone missing the whole night. He did not even return the next morning. Everybody was worried.The Industrial Visit abruptly came to an end because of this. The College Authorities registered a case with the Goa Police. Arun and Sudha were too shocked to even react as he was the best buddy that they could possibly have.

One day when Sudha was writing her assignment, she got a call…….


“Hi! Sudha You had some real kicka** fun at baga beach, didn’t you? “Eh?

“Who’s this”?

“I have an extremely titillating clip of you and your guy having some real fun at the beach and I am watching it right now

Wow! Hmmm…. “Yum” ….hahaha

“Who’s this…? Who the..?”

I want you to leave a cash of 20 lakhs rupees near the College Gate. If you don’t give me the money then I would send the Mms to everyone through Bluetooth. I will make sure everybody in your college sees it. And you don’t try to do anything smart either. Do this tomorrow understood? At 10.30 am Ok?

But but ……*Phone disconnects*

Sudha was worried, really worried. Where would she get 20 lakhs of rupees from? She could see only one option. She Called up Arun.

What the ….. Who the ….. Ok, well….Listen …Do As I say…Ok?”

So Sudha did what the caller asked her to do. She kept a black Bag near the College premise. A man who had his face covered walked in 5 minutes later. Took the Bag and ran. But when he opened it, there was a kilo of wood and cotton in it. What the …..He turned back but Arun jumped in from behind and wrestled the guy to the ground…As he opened his mask …

Somebody had betrayed him.

Thank You Stephen for the Idea :)

Damn !

This one's a short story I wrote for the Ascension" Short Fiction Contest in Clarity of Night"
I could not participate in the contest sadly as the date of submitting the story expired.But hey I still wrote something :P. The idea of the contest was to see a pic and write a short story having the pic in mind. I came up with this :)

This was the pic

I was in the escalator when I saw her. I was going down and she was coming up. She looked really Familiar. Our Eyes finally met. She gave a smile. So I did know her after all. But who was she? School, College….Damn! I had a pretty bad memory. She kept on looking at me till I reached the ground floor. Gosh! Whoever she was, she was damn pretty.

As I was about to turn and go back home, almost cursing my bad memory, I suddenly saw her rush to take the escalator, the one which I had taken seconds ago. She definitely knows me I thought. A few paces and she would be near me and damn I don’t even have a good deo on :P As she came a meter close……. ....

Somebody shouted from behind in an extremely girly way…………..

Hiiiiiiiiii Purva….Such a looong time naaa!!!!

What the …….?

I had made a complete fool of myself.

She: aree, any1 4m khichdi would say that :-D

Me: khaana khake jaana huh! :D

She: NOOOO!!!!

Its hello, how are? Khana khake jaana ha :-P

Me: Yeah Right… :-P

She: I know, as always

Me: arre tu toh gadhi hain Gadhii :-D

She: :-D, but prafull is the epitome of stupidity and the way he explains every time hansa has a doubt is brilliant.

Me: Yeah like… main hoon naa :-P

She: tu aisa KYU hai?

Me: Lol!

She: Aye Anurag! ‘lol’ matlab?

Me: LOL Src…. Tumhara gajre wala gajre bechte wakt kya bolta hai?

She: Wait let me give it a try.....
Gajre le lo, gajre…khushboodaar mogre k gajre le lo, lo lo gajre lo :-D
She: Gajre le lo, le lo, le lo, [laughter] oh lo! Gajre lo!

Me: HAHA! …Exactly what I thought “Lol” :-D

She: Hailot!

Me: That was not Hansa!

She: How does it matter?

Me: Arre srcyyy tu toh gadhi hain Gadhi :-D

She: Ab Bas bhi kijeyain Haan, Bapuji!

Me: Bapuji? Me? Roflmao :-D

She: Aye Anurag! Roflmao Matlab :-D

Me: Hahaha! That’s it I have had enough now. :-D

She: But it was funnn :-D

This one is kind of a tribute to one of my favorite serials on Indian Tele… Khichdi/Instant Khichdi. Loved it whenever it was on. For those of you who don't know.. it's about this mad Gujrati family where most of them or rather all of them are stupid or do stupid things which invariably leads to funny situations.The kids seem to be the smartest and the concept is hilarious. At the end, its their love for each other that puts the icing on the cake.I have kind of tried to bring in all the dialogues or slangs that were used in it. If u know any other… do share it.

P.S: I had my S.E (Software Engineering) paper today. It went reasonably well. I guess I would like to say what a typical Mumbai University Engineering Student would say or would love to say after coming out of the Examination hall….Those 3 Golden Words

“Pass Ho Jaaoungaa” :D…
Thank you Mehreen for your Help :)

Mantra For the Year

A Chat with Stephen the other end

Me: se mein kt hain re :( (I’ll Fail in S.e)

stephen【ツ】: oh mera nahi hoga

Me: oh u r prepared??

stephen【ツ】: ful to man
guns r loaded
just waiting 4 war

Me: dat's called confidence mann

Now here is an optimistic guy. It’s not that I am really a pessimist but the confidence in his two lines made me think. Why did I really say that??Why not believe that yes I can. I too can rise above the rest and be successful. Nothing is terrible except fear itself. Why really fear? Fear something which doesn't really exist? As Nadia Comaneci once said "Hard work has made it easy. That is my secret. That is why I win. "That's what my mantra would be for this year. The roots of true achievement lie in the will to become the best that you can become. Pessimism has never won a battle and never will. It’s going to be Me, Me and Me this year.Wish to Work Hard and leave the rest to god this year. Wish me Luck People :)

And Hopefully by the end of the year I can say ........

Theodore I. Rubin: Quotes: Hard Work,Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.
