On the long dusty roads,
I will wait for the rains.
I will wait till everything is muddy
and then, till it washes all the pain.
I will stand all drenched, not to stop waiting
for your hand to hold mine.

For then, there will be winter
biting away my skin.
I will wait through the shivers,
curling and cuddling.
I will sit here shivering, not to stop waiting for 
the warmth of your hair.

Let the sun show its wrath
and burn down my clothes.
I will wait for the roads to go dusty 
and pierce my eyes.
I will sit all burnt, not to stop waiting for
the comfort of your arms.

Only the roads would know how much I waited,
and only my waiting would know you never came back.

What made Brazil hate Football?

Yes, you read it right. Polls have indicated that people of Brazil (The most enthusiastic football fans) are not happy about World Cup 2014. Percentage of people supporting the tournament has gone down considerably from when Brazil won the hosting rights in 2007.

World Cup has kicked off, and everyone has their eyes fixed on Brazil. Love for the game has brought down fans form all over the world to the arena where teams will contest to prove that they are the best in the world.
Talking about the best in world, one cant keep Brazil out of context. A football team that is very much capable, are good on the form and have the home advantage. But do they really have the home advantage?
Well yes, they do, but not as much as they would have wanted.

A country that worships the game and treat their players as national heroes, and is well known to love the game more than Indians love Cricket suddenly are not so happy with how things have transformed in the past 5-7 years on the road to the Tournament. There were a lot of protests against the Government and FIFA against the Cup threatening to disrupt the tournament. Confederations Cup protests has scaled up the concerns.  Even when the world was watching the opening ceremony on television there were protests going on in the city. But why would that happen? What turned the best football fans people against football?

His Dream Girl

He looks for you, frantically,
and searches for you in the dark.
Oh the pain of not finding you,
knowing, you are around.
A fortnight ago, he met you,
and still remembers you from then.
It was a goodbye but there was some hope.
He is still hopeful as he tries
to draw you on the sand again.
His memory is fading
and so wants to see you again.
But tell me how do I tell the lover in me,
I don't dream anymore.

Of Being 25 - Family Unions - Matrimony and Marriages.

You get up on a Sunday afternoon only to know that there is  family get together at your place. Now, for Indians, who are around 25 and are single, this might be worst thing that could happen.  I am pretty sure that few, if not all, would know what I am talking about.  There are three things common for everyone(well, almost) at around this age.

One, everyone has that Pinki aunty who will ask you about your plans to get married even though her only son is divorced twice at 30.

Two, there is this distant relative who shall talk of how you would make a perfect bride/groom in a family get

The art of Bullshitting - 5 steps

No! Not shitting bull and no not sitting on the bull either! Its something greater and bigger! Read on -

Art is one thing that gets associated to any form of verb that you want to associate it with.
There is an art of thinking, art of writing, art of holding a pen , and not to forget the art to talk about art. Then after all of that, there is the mother of all art, which is to say, the art of bullsh**ting.
Usually people would not associate such an art with something that anyone should be proud exhibiting ,(yeah, I agree that there are some who do respect the art of bullsh**ting) and they have their own very good reasons to try and act sane and not talk non-sense and such . In my opinion, and what might also be closer to truth, most of them would be incapable of doing such even if they wanted to.

Why do I say that it is an art? As I said, its a verb form and hence there has to be an art of doing it. After all there are not many people who can just talk over something they have no clue about and still pass as a person who knows a lot about it. But then everyone can catch up! Like all other art-forms  this can be learnt, practiced and mastered! So wheres the guide? What to do ? Ask me and you will have all your answers ;) !!!

This is not to follow my earlier post of how to be an intellectual! No! That was just another piece of my art! But then, 5 steps to master bull**itting!

1. TALK! You cant be spitting shit unless you open up
