Hey there. I know I have been ignoring this space for a long time for many reasons, throwing a post here or there. But I have started writing again and I’m gonna start posting again surely as a lot of thoughts and ideas have saturated my mind and my brain is just about to burst. Some of that is bound to leak onto this blog.

Anyaway, Sameer [whose tag can be read here] has been kind enough to tag me, reminding me of the good ol’ days of blogging.  Here are my answers to some random 15 questions based on a twitter hashtag #youprefer

1. Night Or Day

Although I always try to be a day person… I can’t help but stay up late.. so night I guess.

2. Facebook Or Twitter

Twitter.. I feel it’s more innovative and less intrusive.

3. Arranged Marriage or Love Marriage

Love Marriage. Even though I might not understand exactly what love is, or how it functions, I am biased towards it. Arranged marriages can lead to attachment which many people might call love, but love is just something else.. it’s that feeling of butterflies fluttering in your stomach, the raising of the heart beat like your heart is gonna jump right out of your chest, as you catch just one glimpse of that person.

4. Delhi Or Jalandhar

Delhi. Yeah, I changed this one to suit my needs. But, I really have fell for Delhi.. and I have no reasons for it.

5. Good looks Or Intelligence

Both? A little bit of both maybe? Come on, we do need both. I don’t mean we all need to be Brad Pitts and Hilary Duffs, but we need to have at least a presentable look. It’s just hard wired into our genetics to develop a certain likability for good looking people. Intelligence might make you successful, but you won’t have very many people to share it with if you aren’t likable.

I’m sure we’ve all witnessed cases where someone good looking might attain something they might not deserve as much as their ugly but more intelligent peers.

He wouldn't have many friends even if he was as brainy as Albert Einstein.

6. Money or Respect

You need both. Respect won’t matter when you are starving. And money will never be enough if you don’t have respect. Of course for some people, neither of these matter.

Just a really nice poster

7. School or College

School. Never been to college 😛 Hope it’ll be fun.

8. Perx or Jas

Let me explain this first. Perx was an alter ego I’d developed on the internet which had become too whiny and depressed and loserish. So, I decided to abandon it and start afresh as me.. Jas 🙂 .

9. Drums or Guitar

Air guitar and air drums 😉

10. Tea Or Coffee


11. Art or Science

It used to be science.. but art is slowly taking it’s place in my heart. I guess I’m just starting to change my approach to figuring out the eternal mysteries. I’m starting to explore inwards instead of outwards.

12. Novels or Movies

Movies.. my first love. I enjoy reading only cuz I immediately start forming a script in my head side by side, imagining a whole movie right inside my head. There’s just something different about seeing it, a feeling of reality, a connect, which reading can never provide.

Like, reading about a person or chatting with them or reading stuff they wrote is such a different experience from talking face to face and spending time together. You feel like you are re-discovering that person. So, if I had to choose between the two, it’ll always be movies.

Mind you, I don’t mean movies based on novels are always better, but many times they are.. atleast when a skilled writer and director makes it.

13. US or UK

UK. I don’t know why.. europe just seems like it would be better.

'nuff said

14. Prose Or Poetry

Prose. Poetry is for people who can rhyme. The only poem I’ve ever loved is “After Apple Picking” by Frost.

15. Me Or You

It depends on who you are 😉 .

I’d like to further extend this tag to Ish, Priya, Reema and the prince of prose himself. Ciao!

#27 – Your favourite teachers

Respected Teachers,

1. Sir, you were the best teacher I ever had.. without a doubt. I’ve always hated studying geography except for the year you taught it to us. In fact I still kind of like some aspects of it just because you taught it to us.. I’ve not forgotten my 8th class geography lessons even now.. You were the epitome of coolness to us..

2. What can I say mam.. you knew how to command respect without having to raise your voice. I still remember I had a bad dream about you during my holidays when I got to know that you were gonna be our class teacher in 8th. I guess there’s nothing else to write really.

3. We took too much liberty with you. I remember how we used to force you into teaching us biology and chemistry when you were our environmental studies teacher. You were like a friend and a guide to us.. thank you for being there.

4. Sir. I know we hated each other’s guts. You, because I didn’t take my duties as head boy seriously.. and me.. well you just have that fukra air around you. But your speaking skills are beyond good. I still call you the Antony of our school..and even though we didn’t like each other, I still learnt many lessons from and because of you, which have helped me in adapting to this world. So, I guess this is kind of a thank you.

5. This is to my maths tution teacher. You told me about ntse, iit, kota.. everything. I still cherish your opinion. You always believed that I can do something great.. and how can I forget all those endless discussions we had.. i guess you played a part in introducing me to the real world.. so thank you for being there.

P.S. This is an apology to all those teachers I might have forgot to mention but still had an effect on my life.. thanx for everything…

#25 – The person you know that is going through the worst of times

Dear person going through the worst of times,

I can’t imagine the pain you must be experiencing. The truth is, I don’t even want to imagine. A certain death looming over one’s head must be a daunting experience.. I don’t even know how I’d take it. I’m so pathetic that I don’t even have the guts to face you and talk to you. What can I say to a person awaiting his death? I guess I can just say my best wishes are always with you.. may you get relieved from your suffering soon…

Your well wisher…

#24 – The person that gave you your favourite memory

Dear kutton,

Thanx for all the fun times we had in and out of school..the trips, standing 30 minutes outside the school gate everyday, parties, matches.. everything

I’ll never forget you guys..

Mujhe bhi yaad rakhna kamino!

#23 – Your future child

Wow this tag is getting annoying.. I haven’t kissed anyone yet, so I’m just gonna change this one too.. And the credit for the idea of this one also goes to Sameer.

Dear future child,

You don’t exist. Now don’t be mad. Let me explain.

Something I’ve come to realize in some time is that people have kids for selfish reasons. Whether it be for society’s sake, their family’s sake or just because they want something to play with.

See, the world is not a good place. You gotta struggle to make something of your life. You have to face challenges, go through nightmarish hardships, and at the end of it all, it’s all for nothing. Some people’ll say that that’s what makes life worth living, but I say fuck them! they haven’t died yet, what do they know what happens after death? Nothing is going to matter after death. Absolutely zilch, zero.. No matter what you accomplish, it won’t matter. So why do we do it you ask? Cuz we were born.. and we have to pass time somehow!

Anyway, so I don’t really want you to exist so I don’t have to be guilty of bringing another soul into this world going through life unnecessarily for my own, or my family’s selfish reasons.

Another thing is, that if you had to be born, you’ll get some bad bad genes from me..cuz I have as much a chance of sleeping with a good looking girl, as donkeys have of writing poetry. So, believe me when I tell you, my genes are shitty. We have obesity, heart disease, diabetes, bone disease, and now even cancer running in the family. Also, I have a short height, chubby hands [can’t play guitar easily].. and on and on and on.. you get the point.. you won’t be so happy to be my kid.

Have fun not existing I guess!

#22 – Your future wife

Dear Future Wife,

I can’t guess how we ended up being married. There are a lot of implausibilities going around here.

First you’d have to be pretty. Then I’d have to have a nerve to actually talk to you. Then you’d have to have the nerve to actually like me.. cuz I know it ain’t easy. Then I’d have to be ready to actually get married, cuz I really don’t believe in the idea. I mean live-in is awesome.. but marriage? maybe I do get to that point some day.

So, if we went past all those issues and still ended up together, wow! Great going us!

Or maybe I succumbed to the ridiculousness that is arranged marriage. I mean, desperation can lead a man to a man doing some very idiotic things, can’t it? So yeah, if we are arranged marriage, please please don’t play those emotional games and try to control me.. or I’ll just commit suicide and leave you nothing.. I get depressed very easily.

So, that’s all I gotta say for now.. Love ya [hopefully :D]

Your personal servant…

P.S. This is the part of a 30 day letter tag.. For more information, go here.

P.P.S. So, the 22nd one was actually “Someone you want to give a second chance to”. But frankly, I haven’t lived very long yet and haven’t been in the position of “not giving someone a chance” so rather than wasting a letter, I’ve decided to change the receiver.. all courtesy for this idea goes to Sameer [who was also doing the tag]. Anyway.. here goes..

#21 – Someone you judged by their first impression

Someone I judged by their first impression,

I’ve always tried not to judge anyone by their first impression. But if I have done something so unfair to you, forgive me.

#20 – The one that broke your heart the hardest

What can I say, I haven’t had any heartbreaks.. so I’m going with something which felt pretty damn close to a heartbreak.

Dear person who broke my heart,

I don’t know why I reacted like that. I still think it was very foolish of me to react like that. You must have been shocked to see me behave like that over such a small thing. Well, what can I say? I was, am and will always be an idiot at heart.

But, it taught me to not expect too much of anyone, and understand that they are only human. So, in a way, thanks I guess.. and it was kind of fun too. Have fun in IIT and don’t forget us. Ciao.

Your friend..

#19 – Someone that pesters your mind—good or bad

Dear Someone that pesters my mind,

I am really glad that you pester my mind. I don’t know whether it’s good or bad as of now.. but I hope I get out of this a better person.

Yes, you are Oneitis no. 3.. what can I say? I can’t avoid these things.. it’s a part of who I am.. It’s a side effect of growing up in a girl-less social environment. I get hung up on people[especially girls :P]. But I guess it’s good in a way, cuz this way I have an inspiration.. something I can hope to achieve which makes me get off my lazy ass and do some work.. all in the hope that one day, I’ll be good enough for someone like you. Even though I know that as amazing as you are, you won’t be single or waiting.. but I guess it’s a satisfaction of being good enough.

Yeah, I’m needy.. and that maybe bad.. but I got no way to get over it right now.

I know I’m gonna be laughing about this a year, two or maybe even six months from now.. and you won’t ever get to know how I came to feel about you. But in a way, it’s still worth it.. cuz it’s a part of my growth as a person. I can still remember what a bumbling fool I was in 10th.. and not being able to talk to oneitis 2 killed me inside.. which made me stronger.. and muster up courage to at least talk to girls [can’t say i’m good at it though :P].

Anyway, have a good life.. hope we can be friends.

P.S. I just gotta share this with you.. I’ve been listening to this song non stop and I can’t get it out of my head.. it’s seriously awesome!

Yours hopefully…
