A story in 6 words.

I know I vowed never to do tags again but this is different, not like the ordinary tags that go around. Can you write a story in 6 words? Read more about it at Swathi's blog here.

here's my shot at it.

She came, only ten years late.

She will live, but her baby won't.

Again, how much for your soul?

Victory was ours because I cheated.

So can you? If yes put it up on your blog :)

That's how old I am. I am not who I wanted to be, but I am getting there. :)

Birthdays I think, are overhyped. I mean, somebody else does all the work, and you get all the credit for doing something as ordinary breathing everyday and managing to live on year after year. Having said that I am so glad it is overhyped. This was probably the best birthday I had in a long time :D. Thank you all who called, smsd, scrapped, I love you all!!

Independence day special

Radio channels are suddenly playing all the patriotic songs that otherwise never get played, TV channels are showing movies like swades and rang de basanti. I am sure DD is showing Roja as always. That's not it, I nearly fell down laughing when I saw 'Kasauti zindagi ki, Indepence day special'. I wonder what is going to happen, all the saas and bahus sing the national anthem together? Or are they going to wear tri colour bindis and tricolour sarees and talk about Gandhiji? I for one am not looking forward to it. I don't mind watching roja for the nth time though :)

Letting go....

Long back I wrote this . Today my mom went to an astrologer and she asked something for me. He said it will never happen. I am heart broken though I try to convince myself he cant possibly be correct, he is human after all that he cant tell my future. My dream is gone, there is no mystery. I am never ever going to any astrologer ever. Idiots. That's what they are. Nobody is telling me what I can do and what I cant.
