"Kitni shiddat se tumhe paane ki koshish ki hai, ki har zarre ne mujhe tumse milane ki saazish ki hai.
Kehte hain agar kisi cheez ko agar dil se chaho to saari kayanath tumhe usse milane ki koshish me lag jaati hai."

I need a miracle.

excited about nothing. For the first time in my entire existence, nothing.
reading A discovery of witches, by Deborah Harkness.
loving my bed.
hating the distance.
wondering what the hell do I want.
craving for some peace of mind.
listening to Close to you, by The Carpenters.
watching How I met your mother

Watching your leads making a drunken fool of themselves gangnam style kinda always cheers you up even when the increasingly annoying waterlogged streets has claimed your third sandal in a month !

The night before the wedding, I watched myself slip away. In faded jeans and your old shirt, conveniently covering the elaborate mehendi on my hands. I met you outside the grocer’s. We shopped for the week, we talked, we laughed, we held hands. And we ignored the mehendi on my hands.
It was like nothing had changed. We pretended nothing had changed. We pretended nothing will ever change.

But that was not true.
Tomorrow you will set foot on foreign lands to start a new chapter in your life and I will begin my life as someone else’s wife.

This was just a stolen moment from borrowed time.
It was a dream from a month ago.
 A nightmare that still haunts me in waking hours.

This is apparently my 104th post. Didn’t realise that I had done a century though it had taken me 5 years. Nah.. that doesn’t sound very positive. Let’s do it again. 

Wo..ow ! I am at Post # 104. Isn’t that just fabulous. Yaay Me!
Er... Now that sounds like I haven’t grown in the last 5 years. Let’s do it again shall we?

Hello everyone, it gives me immense joy to ....

Well... never mind. You know what, I m just glad that I m still blogging. Makes me happy. Thank you everyone who have shared my journey through thick and (mostly) thin.

Cheers !

Apparently people do go against their parents’ wishes to marry someone they do not love.

Sigh! And I thought I was gonna make history. *pout*

I was reading my old posts, last two years have been so much about “the moment”.
“The moment” being an uncertain time in the indefinite future when you walk inside an International Airport vanishing forever from my tangible life.  
I thought I had prepared myself for it. And I knew I had succeeded when I did not shed a tear as I saw u disappear.
I m getting on with my life. I have good friends, colleagues and a maid (well you know how important maids are... let alone a good one). I even have a VISA !
But I also have a hole in my heart, that hurts just a little every time I wake up in the morning knowing you are going to bed oceans away... every time I pick up the phone to watsapp and not send a text... every time some asks me “hey so what plans weekend?” ... and ... and a million other little things that was my life.

Twenty Five

I have been blogging a lot lately. Though mostly in my head. But no more. Yes you read it right. I am gonna do a 25 on 25. Baby steps.
And in true procrastinator style I will begin tomorrow.
Cheers !

au revoir

Twelve hours till my life changes. Twelve shortest hours.
The count down had begun the day we met, by the doorway surrounded by acquaintances.
We had been the only strangers then.
And then there is now.
Everything in between are memories of days that caught us by surprise.

I will miss you. so. much.
