The dark is melting, poured
into this thin-walled room.
I may not want to talk to
real people…but I do want
to talk about something real.
The thin walls are good
listeners, after all.
They know how Plath’s
words “Daddy, daddy,
you bastard, I’m through,”
sound like a hammered nail
in the coffin of a spectral patriarch.
And that’s all that needs to be
said. Because maybe they’ll
pass on the message to that
man who is most certainly dead.
“Friendship is born at that moment when one man says to another: “What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .””
― C.S Lewis
That’s just one of the best feelings in the world. When you find a friend you can be weirdos with.
More than sweets, I love anything mouth-wateringly spicy, like these stuffed chilies, soon to be made into bajjis (an Indian snack)
It’s been a year and a half since I moved from Hyderabad and occasionally I miss it…especially this refreshing view from my balcony. Over the buildings piercing into the sky, you could see the colours merge at different times of the day.
Although I’m not the perpetual sweet tooth, the moments when I do want to grab something sweet, it has to be a muffin and a cup of coffee 🙂
Oh…and donuts of course!
I must have gone to Brigade Road a a few dozen times and passed this little bit of graffiti on the wall each time I was there, without really taking a second to properly look at it. Today, I decided to give it a little more attention in the form of a photograph so that I didn’t overlook it anymore. Cute and simple, isn’t it?
So quite literally, the mask is off!
I’ve come to appreciate how nice nail polish can be and now I’ve accumulated quite a rainbow of them 🙂
This prompt couldn’t have come at a better time because yesterday just so happened to be Diwali, a Hindu festival of lights and everyone lights up firecrackers in the evening. The booming sound of fireworks in the distance and the fizzing of firecrackers makes for a noisy yet fun filled holiday!
Inside the house, my mom and I lit at least 50 or so tea light candles and then lit up some sparklers which didn’t last for more than two or three seconds each, due to the dampness in which they were stored unfortunately. It’s been raining a lot in Bangalore.
Anyway, I happened to take quite a few photos and some of them turned out better than I had ever expected so I’m glad to post them as part of this challenge 🙂
Rooftops are always great right? Climb up there when you’re supposed to be studying, sneaking in some booze and cigarettes and shout out at the top of your lungs because you can feel the whole world around you instead of just seeing it. It’s even better when the dark clouds are rolling in and you can almost smell the rain…
