And I Broke My Heart

My best friends find it hard to believe that I have never been in a relationship long enough to even call it that – a relationship. They’ve always told me that I’m a catch.

Yours

When I thought of meeting you,
My heart jumped and my trepidation grew
I thought we’d wait,
I thought I’d have time to sit and anticipate.
Yet, you thought otherwise…

Cado

Like bumping my toe against obstructive wood, 
I savour the pain, instead of doing as I should.
I ache and ache,
But I refuse to break.

Book Review : “Quarantine” by Rahul Mehta

Quarantine, the short story after which the novel is named, features a man who is still bitter towards his grandfather for being ungrateful and insensitive to his mother, the only person in the family who takes care of him.

Analyse This!

Case in point - the recent non-stop debate about Aamir Khan and his show Satyamev Jayate. There was no space that was not marked by the debate.

Him

All I want is that one person. The over-rated one person. Him, who makes me feel like the half of one.

Everyday

Each day, I think of you and wonder if you’re thinking of me. And if you are – what made you do so. Am I the first person you think …

Who Am I?

A wandering palm reader once asked,
“Do you know who you are?”
Who am I?

What Do I Do?

What do I do when an attractive young man sits across me with his legs spread so wide that his thighs and organ strain against the fabric of his jeans? …

Dharun Ravi : Punished for Being An Immigrant

Congratulations gay people. We’ve arrived. If someone bullies or intimidates us and we take our lives as a result of their douche-bagery, we can rest assured that they will be convicted of bias-intimdiation and possibly, sentenced harshly. And in the case of Dharun Ravi, also face deportation to a country that he probably does not remember. I hope everyone is happy that justice has been served.

Brown and Gay

For the most part South Asians are not the most comfortable talking about sex and sexuality. Is it because we aren’t having any? Funny, I didn’t think the Kama Sutra was for coffee table reading, nor did I think that population of India surpassed a billion through abstinence. Yet we shy away from these discussions, push them into a category of shame and turn a blind eye.

Black

The years, on my face, they made a map,
And you wonder why I’m always black.

You never asked what I’ve seen,
For the scars, they told you where I’d …

You & I

She was all things Grey. In between a yes and no, unsure of left or right, in nor out. The only thing fun about all this was that she was never bored. The inner arguments and the vacillations kept her occupied for hours. Sometimes days. Free of guile and pretenses, what you saw was what you wished you got. But she seldom gave in. intimidating only if you didn’t know her, but then you never really could know her, for she didn’t want to be known. But one day, every thread was unraveled, un-done until all that remained was nothing.
