I study French. I'm not always sure why, but I do.
So in my attempt to improve, I took the advice of a link that was advertised at French class and signed up.
Here are some of the emails I received on signing up. Funny, naive, outrageous.
The perfectly normal ones, I've opted to keep to myself.

Joseph: He's planning a trip to India and wants to know if I'd like to accompany him to Bombay and Delhi.
Why yes, Joseph, I'd love that!

That's Guillaume (no image). He'd like to marry me.

There's Bruno, who if I'm not mistaken, thinks I'm Pakistani and wants to sell me something.

And finally, Jean Christophe. He claims he's a hot air balloon pilot.He's going to be visiting and is searching for a place to stay for a couple of months. The rent shouldn't be too high. Anyone?

Megan is screaming loudly at the world to stop.
I am too. In my head.

Happy Diwali
I love about us Indians, that we celebrate everything. We take the best out of a festival and make it our own. It doesn't matter what religion we were to being with. The mithai and lights for Diwali, the biryani for Eid and the presents and fruitcake for Christmas.

In those few minutes, nothing else exists.
I wonder if that's what love feels like.

Chapter 5

What if she doesn't want to be found? She's careful and hard to trace but what if someone finds her because of me. What if, somewhere, she slipped and I was the one who opened the gateway to hell?

I've taken the reading list off. But don't fret. Here's something else to entertain your lovely selves. An extract from 2006.

'What do you see?' asked the girl. She looked about nine but when you looked at her eyes she might have been nine thousand or ninety thousand even.
'It hurts', he said, ignoring her question and rubbing his hip.
'It's your own fault. You should learn to land better. Like me', she smirked. 'Now what do you see?'
'I see a woman', he said sulkily. 'She's moving across the world'.
'Anything else?'
'I see another one. Looks like she's shaking her fist. At a man. Nothing unusual about that'. His black eyes glared in her direction.
'Don't be a baby Chaos', said Life with all the authority of an older sibling. 'I'm older and you have to listen to me'.
'Girls'. He grumbled to himself.
A comment here, a snide remark there. The worst, an implication and your incapacity to confront it. The smallest thing can sometimes throw the most balanced of us off.

I'm just saying. The only person who gets to assess you, is you.

I make blanket assumptions about people, knowing fully well that that's all that they are.

I'm not sure if I'm toeing the line a little too much here.

Every time I look at your online resume I think about what a beautiful person you are.
You make me smile :)

Note to self (get act together)

The last post was supposed to be a note to myself. Sort of like an organizer, a planner. That clearly didn't work out. Here goes nothing.
-Presentation (l'histoir du Louvre)
-Kancastle (tax)
-Exercise (leg)
-Stitching (hemming homework)
-Companies (resume)
-French (syntax)
-Violin (second position)
-Cupboard (clean out)

Category: Note to self
I'm relaxed, I'm occupied, I'm disturbed.
I can't justify the feeling.
The feeling that makes me just want to kick back and read.It's unacceptable to just do that.
I also want to colour, study, talk, climb, dance.
I also want to work. I also want to love.
I seem okay, to myself but a part of me knows that I'm not.

The cycle is vicious.

She told me that she was only telling me this because I was almost like family.
She advised me to say a small prayer in my heart, every time, before I started something new.
I've never been terribly religious. In fact religious people are somewhat scary.
Still, it never hurt to pray.

I've made this.. this space, a little less findable.
Not impossible to find, just more difficult.
Like a secret. Or a secret garden.

How to get there: Cross the street, enter the Pizza hut building, climb up some stairs, then down, then out the other side and you'll find yourself in old Bangalore. Turn left, enter a gate, pass a house whose windows you can look into at which you'll say, I'm going to marry their son and heir (except I think he's a teenaged kid), climb up some stairs, turn left and you're there :)
