Aunty Shutup!

Beta aap shaadi kab karoge?
Aunty aap apna business mind kab karoge?

Dear Aunty,

I really wish to know, how will me getting married benefit you? Oh yes, your ego or let’s say status might hit the graph after all the gloating over your son’s/daughter’s/relatives success. From one thing leading to another, you’re obvious next question will be, when will I have a baby? Cuz oh my god you’re deeply concerned about my biological clock ticking. Followed by admissions of my kids, then their scores, their college, jobs and finally their “Wedding plans”. After your major breakthrough as a societal gossip monger, you will finally be old and die in peace.

So why not have it the other way round? Let me ask you, Errr Aunty Aap Kabh Maroge?

So next time you try and be a shooter, don’t pull off a face when I press the trigger. You’re about to get some grief. Wait, did I just give you a piece to spread the word?  Shush, don’t drop the ball in here!

Guess, who's the gansta in town? <smirks>

Yours Sincerely,
(From all the girls distressed with aunty nuisance)

Do Re Mi Fa!

And I am... Feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all
And I... will stumble and fall
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to crawl!

Its just amazing how a song can capture all your feelings together and express it in the most beautiful way. 
Braces you up for the most crucial phase of life
Pushing you down to reality
That heavy feeling soon after morning wakes you up with a truckload on your head
The gentle caress when you try and go back to sleep 
Sorting the thoughts rattling in your head 
While messing further, notching up the chaos
Battling Loser vs Winner dilemma
Lost in melancholy despite the unawareness
Sweet consumed ignorant love 
So profound yet demeaning
Buzzing in the head till monotony washes the glue
                                            A charisma giving you the chills
                    Down the memory lane of weather & smell when you first heard it

                                                     What is music?

                             I still don't have a better word for it than BEAUTIFUL
                                                           Do you?
