Not talking the talk

It's been a thing with me... NOT talking the talk. People keep asking me why I don't speak out, when I should.... or why I don't make the right kind of noise.
Well, first, noise puts me off somehow. But, actually, it is more of a reticence to talk about the things that disturb me, depress me or disgust me. I even detest my inability to speak up, I do. To be honest, I hate when I feel the urge to talk about something that bothers me but I feel like I've already talked about it too much in the private... so I just hold it in.

I Am Groot

Asked to pick the best lines from 'Guardians of the Galaxy', I'd pick "I am Groot"...
closely followed by "I am Groot"...
and "I am Groot".

An amazing year

I have had an amazing year.
But, no, this hasn't been it.
I must have had it years ago.
Can't exactly recall when though.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil

These days, the much desired leading man in Bollywood doesn't just have to compete with other heroes.... but he's also to compete with his own film's leading lady....
hope you got the hint, yes, I'm talking about 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil', Karan Johar's latest big-screen offering.

More than anything, it's a handsome tribute to good old Bollywood (or all that we love it for).
Karan Johar has come up with a fine piece of screenwriting (the dialogues do a best fit too), developing an actually flaky kind of story (but obviously, since the mainstream romance of the yore is as good as dead).

The music plays on

In the rhythm of life, sometimes, we find ourselves out of tune... but, as long as there's someone with the promise of becoming our melody, the music plays on.

Here's sharing a special message forwarded by a special someone....

"If you're lying in bed
wrapped up in sheets
of miserable thought,
go to sleep

if thumbing through old messages
only causes your heart to ache
and long for something unattainable,
erase them

if it hurts to keep
everything you're feeling
bottled up inside,
let it out

if you're clinging onto someone
that doesn't treat you like
you're worth the world,
let them go

because sometimes
we choose to believe
that things are only
indistinguishable shades of gray
when in reality
life is more black and white
than it seems

if you're unhappy
with the way
you are living your life,
change it."
