I am you and what I see is me
Don't underestimate the bargaining power of a woman.
You crave for something wholeheartedly for a very long time -- with tears swelling your eyes and beg life to grant you that wish. Life grants it -- when it no longer matters, when your heart has already refused to feel anything anymore.

Kashmir: An impression

Your first sight of the mountains makes you glad that you came.
Your traveling track record can only be described as impulsive.
Where earlier on you question this impulsiveness.
You no longer do.

You wait in the heat.
It's hard to imagine that the top of the world could be warm.
But it is.
You make a mental note, not to grumble about the weather back home again.
A taxi takes you to the second best hotel there.
The first thing you notice on your way there. The soldiers.
The second thing, the shabby grandeur of the hotel.
A capacity of maybe four hundred.
An occupancy of perhaps four.
It's sprawling, it's beautiful, it's old world. Charming.
It's sad.

I go out to meet my Kashmiri friend.
Pakoras and tea.
Her brothers, her cousins, they've come along.
They're georgeous. Of course they are.
They're Kashmiri.
All of them studying to be doctors, lawyers.
Secretly I suspect that this is something of a social pressure.
Well educated.
You have to be.
I roam around the city on my own in a taxi from the hotel.
The only other thing that strikes me apart from the soldiers are the children.
They also carry guns.
Toy ones.

Again, you feel a twinge, you consider it, then discard it.
This is life.

I watch the women. Very conservative and yet, they're not.
The older girls, they pull their head coverings a little more securely round their heads when they pass by people they know. Relatives, friends, people who's words carry weight.
Close to minutes later, their heads are bare again.

As we stop to buy famous Kashmiri sweets, little Hareen, the youngest of the cousins in all innocence asks, 'Do I look better THIS way?' wrapping her duppata elaborately round her head, 'Or THIS way?' pulling it off to show her hair and cover her chest.
The only appropriate answer and I find myself smiling as I say it. 'Both ways, darling. Both ways'.

There is fun to be had.
Lamb kabab off the side of the road, a shikara ride on Dal lake, ancient Mughal gardens, the ruins of palaces
I take in all of this. I lap it up.

You leave, I'd like to say, as quickly as you came.
Except that you can't.
Security checks at the airport in Srinagar don't seem to end.
You finally get on your plane.

Happy, sad, happy? sad?

I can't tell.
Q: Do you ever do things you don't like?
A: Rarely

She, a mother of two grown up girls told me in the course of our almost one sided conversation that she had had a love disappointment when she was younger. She quickly added that her adolescent daughter, my friend; didn't know.
It was how she had come to marry the man she was married to.
From the sound of her story, he was not so much her definition of a husband, more, the a father to her daughters.

Back. Quack.

Anil Kapoor swivelled around in his chair to face the contestants and glared at both of them. The tension hung heavy in the air like the coming monsoon. The two finalists of "Kaun Banega Lounge Piranha Bass-pati" shifted uneasily in their chairs. Both had taken a tireless tirade of questions on music theory (designed by Kamal) and rock history (designed by George), and they were tied on 115 points - it was turning into a photo finish. "Alrightttttty then!", yelled Anil Kapoor, "This is the golden goal round! I ask a question and if you hit the buzzer first and answer correctly, you win the contest!"... excited whispers went around the studio audience.. "If you hit the buzzer and answer incorrectly...", Anil Kapoor paused for effect and suddenly looked very serious, a hush went throught the audience... "You loooooose!", the studio audience went bananas, somebody screamed and had a heart attack and was rushed away by paramedics.

"So letttttt's do it!". "First question - everybody loves Miles, can one of you tell me what key his trumpet was in?", chatterchatterchatter went the audience... Runtun looked stunned and wondered who Miles was, "Must have made some music before I was born...", he thought to himself. Shalini had two fingers on her foreheard and had gone into a trance. Flashback. She was 7 years old and in guitar class. Her guitar teacher was trying to make her understand the difference between a major and minor seventh when suddenly an earthquake rocked the house, everything caved in and within no time she was lost in the rubble and the house was on fire. As she crawled towards the window, tears streaming from her eyes she saw a poster, it had a trumpet on it and a scale chart, what key was it in? Her photographic memory was straining to the point of breaking, she'd only glanced at the poster for a moment and it was years ago but now her life depended on it, she strained further sending electromagnetic shockwaves from her skull, far away near Iceland, a ship's compass suddenly started spinning violently, somewhere in Bihar a Bodhi tree sprouted flowers, back in Bombay she came out of a trance and hit the buzzer with a smile on her face. She had the answer.

Self pity

Self-pity is the psychological state of mind of an individual in perceived adverse situations who has not accepted the situation and does not have the confidence nor ability to cope with it. It is characterized by a person's belief that he or she is the victim of events and is therefore deserving of condolence. Self-pity is generally regarded as a negative emotion in that it does not generally help deal with adverse situations. However, in a social context it may result in either the offering of sympathy or advice. Self-pity may be considered normal, and in certain circumstances healthy, so long as it is transitory and leads to either acceptance or a determination to change the situation.

Radiohead respond to Miley Cyrus' rant

Thom Yorke alludes to teen star's temper tantrum

Media sources have been reporting that Radiohead responded to teen star Miley Cyrus, who lashed out at the band for snubbing her at the Grammy Awards last month.

In a recent radio interview, Cyrus vented her anger at her one-time "favourite" band after they allegedly turned down an invitation to meet her back stage at the Grammys. She said: "I left 'cause I was so upset. I wasn't going to watch. Stinkin' Radiohead! I'm gonna ruin them, I'm going to tell everyone."

According to E! Online, Radiohead responded to her remarks by saying, "When Miley grows up, she'll learn not to have such a sense of entitlement." As it turns out, the band's publicist reportedly issued the statement and not the band themselves.

However, in a posting yesterday (March 12) on Radiohead's Dead Air Space blog, frontman Thom Yorke alluded to the incident, saying: "Wish us all a safe journey if you still like us and you're not one of those people i have managed to offend by doing nothing xx"

Someone's crossing their fingers for me.

you know how when you meet someone you can tell if you're going to know them for the rest of your life, or were supposed to meet them, like they were waiting at that moment in time, for you to arrive, or rather, that moment in time was waiting for the two to arrive?

What would I do?
What would I do if I was attacked?
'Be careful ok?' a friend, a boy, tells me concernedly. 'If somebody provokes you, don't fight back. Just try to get to safety'
Three girls(that I know of) were attacked. One of them a girl from the neighbourhood.
She could have been anyone.
She could have been me.
'Cover yourself when you walk on the road ok?' A concerned colleague advises me. I try to explain that in winter I'm covered from head to toe, yes, socks and woolen hats, not a bit of myself exposed. But in summer, It doesn't strike me as unreasonable to wear a sleeveless T-shirt to counter the heat.
This clearly isn't the point.
Again I think, what would I do?
I replay the situation (being attacked)in my head a thousand different ways. Always using a rational approach. Only to conclude that it's fanatics that I'm dealing with. Not people you can reason with.
I try to understand what their agenda is. It most certainly isn't maintaining the purity of our race, our culture. I'm aware of far worse behaviour that shouldn't be allowed in any culture. The most obvious, attacking women.
The police from the sound of it seem to be on the side of chaos. Dismissing the claims of these women almost unconcernedly.
I have no conclusive response to my question. All I know is that these women who were attacked represent every woman I know.
A support group involving the Alternative Law Forum and the Blank Noise Project has been formed.
I can only assume that there is strength in numbers.

I'm writing this for you.
For you to remember.
You're two.
You found a dress on my bed. About your size.
You asked who was going to wear it.
I said, 'You'.
You can't imagine the joy on your face.
I told you it was for your birthday. You started singing, 'Happy Birthday Megan!' Your birthday is two months away.
But your aunt, Joanne, in tradition with and being completely true to herself has already bought you your present (TWO MONTHS IN ADVANCE). A lovely long, blue dress, that will make you look like a princess.
I tell you that we'll get you a tiara, a cheap one from behind Commercial Street. 'A cheap one', you say, like it's something special. 'Cheap'. So, quickly to save my reputation I tell you that it doesn't matter whether it's cheap or not. It's going to be pretty and THAT's the important thing. Effectively sowing the seed of superficiality and instilling an unhealthy sense of commercialism in your innocent little heart. heh :)
So you start saying, 'Hello Megan's birthday'. I think it's my fault that you do that. I make you say hello to inanimate objects like the sun and the trees and Missy and Tiger our stray dogs and if you throw something on the ground, like a finger puppet, I tell you that it's crying because you did that.
You continue, 'Hello Megan's birthday, hello Megan's dress'. 'Happy Birthday Megan', you sing then you clap and blow out your candle. It's all in your head. You've even made the guest list. Mamma, Maya and me.
It's something special to watch the person that you are. Words don't even come close.
