Like a whisper in the noise
like the winds push sunlight
through the leaves.
Sifting dust through the lanes,
parched hope flickers.
I was looking for you,
you found me.
I finally drank pain and learned to breathe,
did you know you'd leave already?
There is no end, no beginning
seasons and age come with no inheritance,
only sprinkled visions of mortal needs.
I am on my way to believing,
there is life after death, after You. Me. Us. All.
And that's all I need to know.
Just reinstating, in case you 
ever read my words carefully.
We kill time, as time kills us.
But we're never there, yet never too far.

Product Review: Ultramintz ~Arrghh se Aaaahh tak!

My sister: Oh! So you're studying Geometry! *smile widens*
Me: Go Away. Now!
Sis: Ok! I will but only if you answer an easy question first!
Me: Fine, anything to buzz you off! 
Sis: How many sides are there in a circle?
Me: Infinite! 

*I smile back, like Kung fu Panda*

Sis: *grins* Haahaa! Wrong answer!
Me: But... 
Sis: Rehne do (Eng.: Let it be) ! Now let me explain.
There are two sides of a circle:
Inside and Outside!

**With that, she runs out of the room**

I waited for her to go to the other room, after which I closed my door and fetched out a box of Ultramintz from my almirah, where I’d hidden it from my little sis. Looking at the pack itself made me smile. When we think of a mint box, we usually think of tainted plastic glass boxes or bright green and blue colors. But that’s where the zing lies, in the presentation itself! The mint box was kept in a beautiful cradle box which was black in color with hue-streaks of red and blue embedded; that reminded me of the beautiful coral reefs and the undersea world. There is something about dark colors and hues that attract me.

Anyway, so how different can a mint tablet be from another? So I popped in a tablet in my mouth without further adieu. And what happened next was enchanting!  My migraine reduced considerably and like they say, breathing is the spirit of living and when you breath nice and fresh, life is like a bout of fresh air in spring! And why not, after all the two most sought-after contexts are fulfilled:

     ·       Sugar-free (for the calorie conscious)
     ·       Extra Strong! (yeah..yeah..we’re talking about mints only!)

It is indeed a mood-enhancer and my new addiction after coffee!  
Priced at Rs.50/- and available in a sleek black tin pack, Ultramintz is most definitely a coveted product introduced by ITC. Absolutely, a must-try my friends, especially if you have agents of irritation all around you!

Aaarrrrgghhh…se Aaaaahhh tak!

POETRY: Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Tangerine Trees and Marmalade Skies Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ

The marks we human leave
are too often scars,
like the creases on the sheets
where our skins spoke.

Making babies to memories
we never believed we could fly!
Tangerine trees and marmalade skies
whoever believed in goodbyes?

You staring at me, how can I forget the sight
the moment I thought, you'd say the words
I had longed to hear, you grunted, "I need a cigarette."
And never came back that night.

Sickly deranged, I do find that one blissful moment
when I wake up, first thing in the morning
I feel nothing, a sense of calm; it is
relieving to become a blank slate, innocent like a child-
All at once.

"I look so fat", "I am so vain"
learning lessons of self-worth by every strike.
Whoever said you only love once,
never tasted his own tears of pride.

Why can we not hold each other, without defining
who we are, how we belong; why do
us holding hands, make no sense when we say we're friends still?

It all makes me wonder if the sun is ever sad.
