"I got purple nails," she said, half enthusiastic, half tired.

"Nice! What kinda purple?"

"Have you ever eaten blueberry cheesecake? It's the colour of blueberries!"

Be Back By Twelve

She hurried through the corridors, hoping she isn't late. Arriving just in time, she stopped at the doorstep and turned around with the thought of taking her pumpkin back in. It was gone.

The stepsisters weren't so bad after all. It was her birthday and she deserved a night of fantasy. The prince, the fairy, the carriage - the elements of a well planned birthday party.

You think the story is bound to have a happy ending either ways.
But then you realise - Cinderella went back, all alone, on empty streets, at midnight - Imagine what could have been, had she been living in Delhi!

"Isn't it obvious? He loves me more!"

"I hate that guy!"

"Because he loves me more?"

"Yes. But I love him too!
I want more of his love"

"You want more of everyone's love."

"Yes, but I want more of his love more!"

Drink Less

Just realised, mom had gradually moved all glasses out of my bar. She knew I'm too lazy to walk to the kitchen.

Dear Salary

You work.
You make reports.
You analyse your data.
You make fancy slideshows.
Process numbers in spreadsheets.
Make photocopies & file them for record.
Plans, schedules, meetings, emails, fax, xerox.
Explain your boss why this month was not so good.
Prepare for appraisals hoping for that 15% rise in the salary.
Do you see how your monthly salary dominates 5/7th of your life?
What of the promise that you made to your five year old self?
What do you look forward to when you leave home?
Why are you just a copy of a copy of a copy?
What makes you work the way you do?
Where are your big fat dreams?
Where is all your passion?
Where is the romance?
Where's the fun?

Dedicated to everyone still figuring what to do with their lives while they sit in their offices on a Saturday afternoon.

Bombay and Mumbai: A Tale of Two Cities

Bombay promises, dreams come true;
Mumbai claims its first right to dream.

Bombay makes room for thousands who come in each day;
Mumbai asks them where they've come from.

Bombay is into businesses;
Mumbai never lets anyone mind their own.

Bombay makes movies;
Mumbai makes movies call Bombay, Mumbai.

Bombay is full of colour;
Mumbai is saffron.

Bombay never sleeps;
Mumbai gives you sleepless nights.
