Saunter Along

I don't know where I want to go. I don't know how to get there.
All I know is that I get lost when people start giving me directions.
I've been alone. Been loved. Been ignored. Been pampered.
And I am ready now to go face the "big bad world". Because I don't believe it's either big or bad.
At any point of time in life, there will always be a handful of people who will care.
There will always be only a few I'll be in touch with.
I've often been called anti-social, aloof, insensitive and detached.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
If I appear anti-social, it's because I can think of no place worth going to. Crowded places make me feel uncomfortable. Loud music doesn't allow me to hear myself think.
If I seem aloof, it's because you haven't made the effort to come closer.
My insensitivity is only towards the pretense I cannot fathom. I am the irritating girl who's eyes well up whenever the dog in the movie dies.
My detachment is a cover-up for what I consciously will never reveal.

I don't know what I want and where to get it from.
I only know I have to keep trying to find out.


  1. Absolutely loved it :) You are and always be the "move/make-me-inquisitive-sorts"


    P.S. Where have you been? No reply to mails :( Just that facebook says you had been on an impossible journey :D. Fill me in someday!

  2. Thank you, Prabhu. Your comments always manage to make me feel warm.

    Yes, I've been really bad at keeping in touch this past month. Will fill you in ...someday soon, I hope.

    These lines work under the skin. I told you have that uncanny gift of moving when least expected. But you continue to revel :)

  4. Lovely post. Enjoyed reading it thoroughly.

  5. Thank you Sir. It means a lot, coming from you.

  6. You have to express more your opinion to attract more readers, because just a video or plain text without any personal approach is not that valuable. But it is just form my point of view
