Sugar Plummeth...

Some relations we bring with us... 
Some others we forge...
Some remain so distant, yet ever so close...

It's not everyday that you find a mirror image of yourself in a person less crazy but just as paranoid. To say that she is a friend would be a gross under-statement... We could have been twins and the world wouldn't have noticed. The specs prove this point so well, it's uncanny! 

Soledad

Loneliness has taken over the best part of my last 3 months now. It's one thing to spend time with yourself, another thing entirely to start delving inside one's mind for solace. Especially when the floor of the pit is not too appealing...
I came to Bhopal in the 3rd week of April, as part of my field job and to learn the nuances of my future responsibilities (when the training period ends). It's been 3 months now. While the work has been teaching me lots, I am doubtful about the after-work scenario. And, judging by the fact that I haven't killed myself, I assume that I am accepting myself slowly. Swimming a lot though, only to pass away the evening hours in a haze of blue.

One could say this is my crap karma coming back to haunt me. Another could say this kind of lone time will be good for me, taking me to a higher clarity about the purpose and path of my life. Yet another could say that it's abnormal for a 24 year old to be unable to make friends in a new city. Only my vices are my true companions. Whatever the case be, bottom line is - being lonely is good only if you need a break, not a sabbatical!

Too soon to end... GET '13

It was our last day at the production plant. Being the perfect gentleman I am and for the common good of lesser mortals, my good friend (maybe the most sincere trainee of our batch) and I decide to re-visit the ghosts of Christmas past… For later, we were to embark upon the mysterious adventure that they call 'field-work', a mere epithet for being publicly humiliated for one's inefficiency, bereft of the customary uniform.

Trucks, Dalai Lama, friends, Tibet and elections...

The best two days of my professional life, 22nd and 23rd of March, 2014. Two full days of running two and fro, in and around the Buddha International Circuit. Two days of watching tests,repairs, formations and laps.

The prodigal imbecile for St. Valentine

Here comes Valentine's Day... Again!
For starters, this is how I looked when I woke up early this morning, booming with courage and spraying happiness everywhere :-D
