The First Blog...

My first blog!hehehehehe!

What a day to start off something like this!
A day when something made me chant a verse that I had learnt ages ago on my way to IOB, twice…(Aditya Hrudayam to be precise…learnt it in my sixth grade…ah! Memory!...)a day when it rained in Madras!!!(as my mom suggests, possibly because of me and my unexpected spurt of bhakthi!)…when I got to know how simply awesome vanilla ice-cream is when mixed perfectly in a Carpigiani machine…(If you’ve not tasted it at Ram’s Milky Way yet, then please please make it a point to have it some time! The guy at the billing counter is actually doing me favours these days! Clever! He knows that I keep coming every other day!)… a day when I sought god(Mylapore ‘Kabali’, as Mr.Kumar at CPPD mentioned this morning…), only to realize on the way back, as to how enormously conceived is the concept of a religion…(bp claims to the wondrous aspect of spirituality…something that non-believers like me would never get to realize, he says! I agree! I just wouldn’t believe it even if I saw it myself!)…when I got to ponder about the ability of the human to adapt and accept(ok…this is a funny observation made from my love for rasam and bp’s love for dosas!)…a day when I realised that coincidences don’t wait for blue moons…(I chat with vasu and type out a dialogue from ‘Minnale’ in the middle of the conversation, only to realize that the next song on my playlist is from Minnale…Mr. Kumar talks of Kabali and there I am in the evening…I ask guppu about akansha and there she is on the phone with him, answering my question!!!)
What a day!
But then, coming to think of it, every day has its own share of events and realizations. All glaring naked in front of the infinite spaces of the human brain, screaming “Take me in! I’m all yours to chew on!” There you go again…you bloody perverted mind o’ mine!
Thoughts so volatile, that only an inkling of them even trigger streams of more thought…let alone be etched in the permanence of words!(Am actually wondering if even words are permanent…I lost the whole set of my earliest poems to the malfunctioning of a screwed up hard disk…!!!)
Thoughts…an endless chain of undying leaves…
