In My father's eyes

Sailing down behind the sun,
Waiting for my prince to come.
Praying for the healing rain
To restore my soul again.
Just a toerag on the run.
How did I get here?What have I done?
When will all my hopes arise?
How will I know him?
When I look in my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
Then the light begins to shine
And I hear those ancient lullabies.
And as I watch this seedling grow,
Feel my heart start to overflow
Where do I find the words to say?
How do I teach him?
What do we play?
Bit by bit, I've realized
That's when I need them,
That's when I need my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
Then the jagged edge appears
Through the distant clouds of tears.
I'm like a bridge that was washed away;
My foundations were made of clay.
As my soul slides down to die.
How could I lose him?
What did I try?
Bit by bit, I've realizedThat he was here with me;
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.

The last one week has been a little too stressed out for me. Things haven't been too great. A sudden reality check in the bus journey from B'lore when I came home. came here only to have seen my dad get a mild heart attack and have been in the hospital the last four days. Sittin outside the ICU that nite, the whole world around u is soooo quiet. sad faces, tired faces, all havin a story of their own. The antiseptic smell of the hospital hits u rite on the nostrils. The eerie silence outside the ICU. The slight pat on the shoulder from unknown faces, the gentle smile that would mean the world to u. It was saddenin to hear all the probs that the others have. To each his own. But bottom line is they all care for their loved ones and if somethin happens to them, it means the world crashes down. Millions of thoughts and flashes from the past engulfed my mind when I was sittin outside the ward. A mighty pillar from my world was lyin inside tired, worn out and worried. Not sure wat was goin thro his mind all these years. He was always a strong man. He was a special friend, a great person to talk to and a kind soul for everyone. His smile radiated sooo much energy, it has given me the strength to go out there and kick some butt on more than one occasion. The second I heard the doctor say he needed to be admitted, I saw the look on my mother's face. She was shocked to say the least. She is a strong woman. she has cheated death many a time and is still THE person in the family. To see a person like her, upset and worried, was not a good sign. The last four days has been tough for all of us. But I know I have a wonderful family. Support from all parts of the world, from every member of the family and wishes and prayers and healing powers of my brother have all contributed in helpin my dad have a speed recovery. He is back, the heart attack is a signal to just let me get a reality check, bout myself, bout my family, bout the world and bout wat is instore for me in this world...

I love my dad and I love my family...

Where's the party Yaar?

Shake! Shake!
Don't go I believe in a celebration
I believe you set me free
I believe you can loose this chains
I believe you can dance with me
Dance with me

Shake! Shake!
Shake! Shake!
I believe in the third world war
I believe in the atomic bomb
I believe in the powers that be
But they won't overpower me
And, and you can go there too
And, and you can go go go go

Shake! Shake!
Shake! Shake!

And we don't have the time
And everything goes 'round and 'round
And we don't have the time
To watch the world go tumbling down
Go! Go!
I believe in the bells of Christ's Church
Ringing for this land
I believe in the cells of Mount Joy
Doesn't understand
And, and you can go there too
And, and you can go go go go

I believe in the walls of Jericho (And you...)
I believe they're coming down (Can go there too)
I belive in this city's children (And you... )
I believe the trumpet's sound (can go go go go)
And you can go there too
And you can go go go go..

I believe in what I'm doing
What am I doing here...

It's been rainin non -stop for the last one week,where ever I go!... And now I have brought rain to B'lore too. I love this city and it's good to be back. ************************************************************

We gon' sip Bacardi like, it's yo birthday'
Cause you know we don't give a fuckIt's your birthday!

IT's MY BUDDAY..........

J'aime Pondicherry

I thought Beer & Biryani was the best combination, till I realised somethin else was mucho cooler than that. Ladies and Worms, I was in pondicherry this weekend and i had the BEST weekend Ever in a loong looong time. No deadlines to look out for, no pressure from work and just nothin in my mind other than all the pretty firangs there...Oh my!! *Hubba hubba*. (takes a deep breath)
Yanyways.. I took off for pondi with a few friends and reached the place at 8 in the evenin. Didn't go to our room or to the house we were supposed to go. Went straight to one of the many BARs the place had. I tell u this place is infested with wine shops and Bars. Everywhere u go, every where u see, you could see liquor overflowin.Beer round number one. Beer round number two and three later, one wise noble friend came in with tickets to a strip show. I was like, huh, wat u must be kiddin me kinda look and they were all already way tooo hyper and on their way to the show. Ended up goin to this small guest house (that's wat they had named it) the ticket amount was 300Rs per head. I was still really not in the whole "Am about to go for my FIRST ever strip show" they loved to cal it The Cabaret though..hehehe
Went in and saw the place already smellin of cheap booze and sweat, surrounded by cig smoke. A few minutes in the room and i was thinkin OH god, one and a half hours to go!!!

* The rest cannot be disclosed here, this blog is rated R. So details shall be spared*

Later that nite, we sat in the room and started talkin over lots and lots of Beer. this place is soo cool, Booze is available in such ease that ppl prefer beer to water. It was crazy, to see the amount of Liquor that was consumed that nite. decided to call it a day at bout 3 in the mornin. Sunday started off in a splendid fashion. had breakfast and took off on our way to the Beach. The scene looked simply breathtakin. Didn't waste any time in gettin into the water. From bout 8 in the mornin to bout 12 we were in the water. One thing bout the beach really pissed me off. there was a seperate area for the Firangs and the others. A rope segregated the beach in to areas for them and the others. What the hell is goin on? ANd there were guards standin near that rope to send the ppl away (the ones who dared to walk upto them and koshtin them) other than that, it was one amazing monrin. At bout 12 the clouds started gettin really dark and it started to pour. The sea became slightly rough and we decided to head back to our hotel and continue with our Beer session. came to the room, watched formula one and enjoyed the evenin in the company of Alonso and trulli.. Simbly brilliant wonly I say!!!!
Left POndi at bout ten and came home early in the mornin by bout 1. And the whole day it's been rainin here. I simply love this city when it rains. Been sittin in the 7th floor balcony of my house lookin at the Wet city, and all the trees with the chill in the air and the rain gettin to my face. OH my. The place smells gr8 and the weather is just phenomenal.
Just a couple of days and am goin to b'lore. Things are happenin and good things are happenin. I like the feelin that is over powerin me the past few days. Life is simply mucho cool and Am really happy.
BTW my works were screened in coll on friday and the response was gr8. They loved my ads. Thangyu thangyu!!!

*Damn I really wanted to write bout the Strip show*
