Coffee with Utsav!

“Aaah!”, I thought as I saw a Georgia Coffee Machine. Surely a hot cup of cappucino was going to cheer me up and freshen me up! So I took my step forward and approached it with eager anticipation. I clicked all the right buttons and it made all the right noises. I put my cup right under the nozzle just in time when it was spurting out its answer to my request. I was happy. The cup was filling up. Finally, when it was full to its brim only did I remove it from there and walked upto my desk. I kept it there for a while to cool. I am not sure for how long it was. Not more than a few minutes surely! Wrong! As it turned out, I had left it like that for quite some time untouched and ignored. So finally when I did take a sip from it, there was nothing refreshing about it. All I felt was a coldness that swept through my entire body. I thought it’d get better and in that very hope, I continued sipping until there was nothing more left. And now...

The bitterness still remains and it will until something sweet comes along!

Goodbye Pilani!

Warning: This post is filled with cliché’s and written in broken sms English. So all the people who want to make fun of it, remember, you have been forewarned!

It’s been four years since I’v come here. Four long years. Looking back, it doesn’t seem to have been too long. I can still remember my first day here…My first reaction looking at the gate “this must be the back entrance”…looking at the hostels…”I wanna go back rite now!”…looking at the temple..”Oh wow! Finally something nice”…looking at the clock tower..”not much of a reaction actually”…and the the heat was killing me!! get the point..

So yeah..its been four nice years..had some good moments..some bad moments..some really good moments…have made my friends for life here..(hopefully :-D)…have met so many ppl here with such various interests that it actually baffles me rite now..have done some crazy things that I thought I’d never do…well…its been great.. ( I really would want to elaborate..maybe some other time) now I m leaving ? how does that make me feel ? Frankly, I m not too sure..maybe I haven’t accepted it yet..or maybe I have…I keep tellin myself abt how this is not an ending but a new beginning..but yeah..i m gonna miss this place like crazy..i’m gonna miss a lot of things..and if I start listing them down..its gonna go on n on...

There are like a million more of this…I really cant list all of them down…but every minute spent here was wonderful..(Yes besides me cribbing all the time..hehe..)

There is no better way to express what I’m going through rite now but these few lines…

Things are changing
It seems strange and
I need to figure this out
Yesterday we were laughing
Today I'm left here asking
Where has all the time gone now?
I'm left alone somehow
Growing up and getting older
I don't want to believe it's over
Don't say goodbye
Cause I don't wanna hear those words tonight
Cause maybe it's not the end
And although we knew
This time would come
Don't say anything tonight
If you're gonna say goodbye

This is an ode to everyone whom I met here and with whom I’ve shared all the wonderful memories that I’m taking back with me!

Ever Ever After...

(This is actually a song..dunno how to "Write" the tune in

I was sitting outside my door
And then it came to me
That it was so hard to see myself without you
I felt a piece of my heart break
I don’t want to be hurt
I don’t want to cry
I don’t want to be alone
I don’t want to break down
So there’s only one way

Come with me
I don’t wanna let you go
Tomorrow is going to be a brand new day
I’ve got no money or house
But baby that’s a start
Please don’t say goodbye

I see a bright light over the horizon
I know it’s gonna be okay
I know we are gonna make it
We’ll be on the other side
I guess its love and there’s no mistaking in that!

Life goes on
And we’ll live happily ever after!

X: Okay, so what if I don't want to give up on her?
Y: You don't call.
X: But you said I don't call if I wanted to give up on her.
Y: Right.
X: So I don't call either way?
Y: Right.
X: So what's the difference?
Y: There is no difference right now. See, X, the only difference between giving up and not giving up is if you take her back when she wants to come back. But you can't do anything to make her want to come back. In fact, you can only do stuff to make her not want to come back.
X: So the only difference is if I forget about her or just pretend to forget about her?
Y: Right.
X: Well that sucks.
Y: Yeah, it sucks.
X: So it's just like a retroactive decision, then? I mean I could, like, forget about her and then when she comes back make like I just pretended to forget about her?
Y: Right. Although probably more likely the opposite.
X: What do you mean?
Y: I mean at first you're going to pretend to forget about her, you'll not call her, I don't know, whatever... but then eventually, you really will forget about her.
X: Well what if she comes back first?
Y: Mmmm... see, that's the thing,somehow they know not to come back until you really forget.
X: There's the rub.
Y: There's the rub.

No one is coming back because there is nothing to come back to.

True Lies...

There is nothing, / There is anything, / But there isn't, / Perhaps there is, / Perhaps there isn't, / Surely there is, / Said there isn't, / It's not true, / There is truth, / The lie there is, / There is a lie, / The truth there is, / No one knows, / No one cares, / We know nothing, / We know everything, / Still don't know, / There is an answer, / There isn't an answer, / The truth there is, / The truth there isn't, / The lie there isn't, / The truth there is, / The truth is a lie, / The lie is the truth, / I'm not sure, / Anyone is me, / I am anyone, / Everybody is me / I am everybody, / Like the truth becomes a lie.
