IN SEARCH OF ME...

it's a long walk so far...i'm in search of an identity...beyond the fact that i'm someone's son or someone's brother or someone's friend bla bla bla...they are so vague...why can't i have an identity of my own?

It really stroked me that day...nearly four years ago...i was in a theatre to watch the block buster " The lost world"...and the incidents that followed forced me to start the search for myself... there was a little girl (Shikha, as I came to know later) standing near me...she was with her father and her younger brother...I took her to my lap...we two were wondering at the things that were happening on the screen in front of us...with eyes wide shut!

A NEW FRIEND...

I was not sure if she would come back again...when I woke up next day and looked out for her, she was not there...I waited for a while and went back to bed again...I arrived office late...it was really a gloomy day...

I almost gave up...but failed to resist myself from giving a try next day again...so wake up a bit earlier then the days before and had some rice grains spread on the balcony...at much to the delight she was there...as usual she had a straw...standing on the railing she looked at me...bending the little head from all sides...as if a computer scanne…
