What to eat?

Without letting me know, the sunday sun slipped away,
the gathering darkness instigated hungers in my being.
the touch-phone remained untouched.
the unfinished projects remained unfinished.
the story remains, without a start and without an end.
must i eat? must i create? must i reach out? 
the expanding tired weight pulls down energies... the excess, the excess, the excess! 
the meditative escapes into menial chores provided stillness and peace, but no solutions. 
what to do? where to go? whom to meet? what to eat? 
The mind vacates through the gaps in between the internet browser's tabs.

Hammered friday, alive saturday.. sunday with a promise to end. 11 pm.
Maybe I can attend to the to-do list.
Maybe I can at least start that one idea.
Maybe I should just justify the sunday with some useless proofs of my existence.
kitchen is a better place for that proof to exist in rather than the internet. But old habits die hard.
Click publish, and on with the MTR Uttappam.

hearts on window sill

when the lights go out
and the city's TVs and chat windows are left lifeless
the lonely legs bring the living souls
to the windows and balconies of the lonely city.
and in that honest dark time,
the city sighs.
empty heavy gazes
converge in the heat of the city.
hearts on window sill
breath for life in the hot mist.


Tatkal: my new graphic story

My mind farts out ridiculous scenarios and stories all the time. Almost always, I brush them away and go on with the order of the day. Last Wednesday was different. Well, to begin with I had taken a day off in the middle of the week. But more importantly, I decreed to myself that nothing is silly or alternatively, everything is silly. There is no point in evaluating and judging on things that are yet to be created. One must go at least one step in the direction before deciding. So, here's a little silly story that i  am building now.  Here are the first 8 pages of the story. The story will keep on growing here http://pinterest.com/thejinkatrip/tatkal/ Many of you are confused about the name. 'tatkal'. well, guess i will give away the plot of the story here, to ensure that you would remain interested in the story.  its a story about this person who has a certain troubling feeling that he can't identify in the beginning, but soon realises that it was a feeling of him fo…

To dream

What's your dream?
Really?
Are you sure?
So are you going to do everything in your power to make that dream a reality?
How are  you so sure? What's so special about that one dream? When a thousand things are possible, how can you make yourself focus on a single goal? What gave you that clarity? Tell me. TELL ME.


Brand: bad pimping

If I show you picture of kids and the word 'growth' in large letters next to it.. what does that tell you? 'What do you think?' I am not saying anything. maybe they will grow to be giants jumping on those letters sponsored by Aquaguard.. maybe, while jumping on those letters, a centimetre will be added per limb per jump...  maybe it will lead to a sudden spurt in Indian's presence in World wrestling federation..  so how does it work? Do you have to apply the Aquaguard water at the sole of your feet? Does it work 'holistically' with your body? If we keep drinking Aquaguard water, how many centimetres will be added to my height/ biceps/ etc per month?  No? no such benefits? then why write growth -shoth kind of bakwaas? oh, so it is supposed to be your RTB (Reason to believe). Its really an acronym for something.. 
Global. Reverse osmosis. ultra violet. taste heightener. 
So its really a machine that heightens the taste of the globe through reverse osmosis and…
