Social networking can get real funny.
The 'Five things you cant live without' coloumn is the funniest.
People write all kinds of things.My mom,My dad,My love,My dog,my ipod.....laptop.
Can make you smile,sometimes.
Can make you want to say 'SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!'
The answer i think,would be the same or at least similar for everyone.
Five things one cant live without:Authority,Attention,Sympathy,Ego and Lies.
I watched this watchman guy chase a couple of kids with a stick.Flailing.It was an abandoned building and I'm pretty sure the kids were just playing hide and seek.Now,you could argue that the guy was just doing his job.That he was a broken 60 year old still dedicated to what he is meant to do.You can....
The way i see it,he was thrashing about like a fish cause,at that instant,he wasn't guarding someone else's property.He was protecting HIS building.His,when his master's not around.His,when he has his packed lunch by the pillar.His,when he takes a leak by the wall.His,when he dreams at night.His,when he plays his own games of hide and seek with the world.He will not allow anyone else to hide there.Just like the kid who discovers the best hiding spot.And he will forever be the only one who seeks in there,for times he knows he can never find.
Its his and he will never allow anyone else to take it.His AUTHORITY.
Each one of us has our own deserted builiding.
I dont think i even need to get started on Attention.Social networking is all about it.From stupid online names to cool orkut tags.From totally personal 'Whats-on-my-mind' to yelling out judgements.From making friends to lighting a cigarette.Almost every single thing we do ,we do it for that one glass of irresistable wine.ATTENTION.
SYMPATHY-When was the last time you felt bad that someone else was feeling bad for you??Every one loves it and that's just it.
EGO-You say you don't have it??You say your pride's not worth the sleepless nights you've had cause the girl dint call you back??(Not because she didn't,but because YOU did)That you don't feel like killing yourself for being so stupid again??That you didn't feel bad to borrow money from that one friend again??That your pride is something you are not proud of??
If not.You're a complete Jackass.Sorry.
LIES-Have you never ever lied??Can you tell me for sure,that you have not lied more that a couple of Hundred times?? or a couple of thousand times??
Everyone needs them.That's a Truth.
These were just small examples.I do hope you get the bigger picture.
You can always say that there are other things...like love and friendship.Like the smell of wet earth,a full moon...
Yes,there are.But I'm not in a mood to write about them :)
When is the only time you get bored of the wind blowing at your face???
When you spend two out of three days in a train.
The shabari express.Me,Mom,Dad and little Sister.
I cant say I wasnt dissapointed the first i saw them.I was hoping for a couple of cute girls to be besides us,and they turned out to be two freakishly large boys!!Intimidation to the maximum possible extent and self esteem on an all time low.
It felt like the gods were laughin...'HA HA HA ...YOU'RE LITTLE!!!'
Not that they were bad people,jus that i dont think huge people have got much brains.When was the last time you saw a sumo wrestler win the science fair??People that huge...they either run gymnasiums or own mutton shops(near Charminar).And so,they never need brains.I say its evolution.
You cant think???Get rid of the need to.
If boredom was a knife.I was stabbed.
The way back.
Cute girl at the seat opposite....WITH HER DAD!!!!
Cuter girl at the side....alone.
The whole journey in tormenting silence..SILENCE!!!!!
If boredom was a knife...I was having an autopsy.
Yes,i know.The guy really does look a lot like me.
Oceans green under grey blue skies
I sail past with a broken mast
As time swirls a whirlpool by
I survive,on a paper boat
Blind is the captains eye
On the deck i stand,and stare
The sea spits salt and despair
I vomit back some curse at her
She bellows back,angered at my ire
We love this hate we share
Sunset lent some gold,i think
As the ocean turns to a yellow ,bright
A distant bird flies,
Smiles trickle down my face
As all my gods weep with joy
Nightfall sees a lone star twinkle,
My guitar sings to love
Moon smiles a mothers sigh
I play all night,as i know
The paper boat will sail along
This paper boat,called life
