On blogging

Captures my thoughts absolutely perfectly, the only point is – when would I resume writing?

But let me not forget that I belong to Ganga Mail as much it belongs it me, and that I owe my identity to whatever I have written on it so far. The idea, therefore, is to resume writing on it without worrying about what people will have to say. I really don’t give a fuck — so why pretend that I do?

The Red Wedding

I have read all the books, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all the books of A Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin. While I have never been a fan of book adaptations for movies/TV the latest episode of Game of Thrones – The Rains of Castamere has made me revisit my opinion. I knew what was going to come, I knew what would happen – even then it was shocking. Without a doubt, the most powerful episode of the series till now.

After the rains.. by Kunal

The light rays have traveled afar, it has been a long day and all they want to do is party before the earth spins away. They spy a few drops of water floating about and there is an instant connection between them. The rays speed toward the drops, the drops whirl about in the sky; sparkling, inviting the rays. The rays meet the drops, tango with them, dance with them and turn around in new angles as they party together and paint the sky in an enviable riot of colors.

I should write…

It has been ages since I wrote something properly, and so much has happened in my life. Now I just need to find time – actually scratch that, I need to get the drive to write something properly.

So many drafts lying unpublished, so many stories lying without an end – should get back to those. I should write.

I should write about Hyderabad – my home for nearly 11 years – how badly I miss it. I should write about Munich, my new “home” – can I even call it that yet?  I should write more.

I should write about the new gadgets I’ve been using, but what is the use? Everybody uses the same. I should write about the apps I’m loving, but leave that too. At least I’ve been clicking photographs and publishing them on instagram – that is one good thing.

Well the conclusion is I should write, will get to it soon, hopefully!

Seven Year Itch

I don’t know when I fell for her, all I remember is she had always been my dream girl. And no it was not love at first sight, it was love at first mention. From the moment I heard of her, I wanted to make her mine.

I wooed her unlike any other girl I wooed – after all she was the one. I spent nights pining for her, I took advice from people experienced in the matters of heart. I rehearsed my lines, I learned to tie the perfect knot, I pressed my clothes, I polished my shoes, and I was ready to meet her. In total it took two chat sessions and four dates for me to win her heart. I even remember the date when we got engaged – 19th July, 2004.

Nearly a year later, on 11th July, 2005 I took the vows. We had a rocking relationship. The nights were as passionate as the days, if not more. The weekends were spent together. The romance was alive and kicking. Of course we had our ups and downs but then who doesn’t? We stuck through each trough to celebrate the peak.

There were times when the ebbs were more and the highs kept coming further apart. Maybe that was the reason, maybe we had just crossed the expiry date of our relationship, maybe the declining romance was the reason, maybe it was because now I preferred to spend my weekends with myself, or maybe it was a collection of all these that pushed me to look for gratification outside the wedlock.

I wooed many, most trampled my heart; but I did find love again. The other girl and I professed our love for each other and decided to get hitched. But I had to set the past free. It was not an easy task, you do not take a relationship of 75 months and just flush it down the drain. It wasn’t easy, but it had to be done. After few long discussions we decided it was for the better and filed for separation. Thankfully it was an amicable separation and I would like to believe we are still friends.

I had heard of the 7-year itch, I got hit by the 7th year itch. Coming Monday, I will be getting hitched again.


And so a 6+ year long journey with my first company comes to an end.
