A few years ago, I read an article by Francois Gautier (sorry for not using the cedille) that was titled 'Are Hindus cowards?'. I didn't give much thought to the article at that time but every time a bomb blows up killing hundreds of Indians, the article comes straight back to my mind. Of late, there had been so many blasts that I kinda believe in it now. Yes, we are cowards and have been for many centuries now. We've let almost every other race on this planet invade us. Yesterday's bombings have changed me for ever. I do not want to mention what I believe in at this moment as it is controversial but as I end this post I feel that ' We will patiently for another bombing in future, after all we are more than a billion ....life is cheap'.

This sort of phrase would have drawn a funny response ('Chandler'esque if I may put it) from me a couple of years ago. But no more. I am a firm believer in this phrase at this point in my life. I agree with most of my friends and colleagues when they tell me that I am running 5 years late in my life. I tend to go through stuff that a normal person of my age would have gone through 5 years ago. When I was in college, all I was interested in were Cartoons, F1, Cricket and any damn series on Star World or Zee English as opposed to my friends who had real problems I guess. Looking back, I think I did a damn good job in keeping my mind pre-occupied. Now that I am no longer interested in these and faced with reality, I find myself down a lot these days. Given a choice I would love to go back in time and erase certain things that happenned in my life but that would need divine intervention. The only thing that keeps me lively these days is Music(I hope my boss doesn't read this). If it was Taylor Hicks last year, it is Keith Urban these days. Donno why but I take a huge liking to their songs. Their lyrics touch me like no other. I want to be like how I was a couple of years ago. No worries, all fun and having a point of view on everything damn thing on this planet. It will take time but I will be back.
