Finding something new

So one day I was walking across the street aimlessly, wandering along the lines, you could say. Watching people, their activities, the different kinds of things that often go on in the marketplace. Walking on and on, I stopped by a book store with some really nice books, new editions some of which looked really interesting. Walking inside, I gaze around the store. It was a newly opened one and I had been around here since the past week only. To tell you, it was pretty swanky. There were these really great shelves, everything organized as per the buyer's demands. Learning books on one side, books for dummies on the other side. Fictions, non fictions auto biographies all were sorted out in a pretty neat manner. The store also had a archies gift center with all kinds of gifts. For the infant, young, old, boyfriend/girlfriend sister, brother, husband wife. You name it.Also accompanying the store was this really cool coffee place. Medieval themed cafe bar servin all kind of beverages to sooth up your insides. It was pretty amazing to see the old and worn out small shop being transformed into such a swanky new place that could attract a lot of readers, place to sit down, read your book, relax over a cup of coffee and just chill out for a while. Such are the places where sometimes I find solace in. These places offer you the exact kind of privacy as well as the exposure you need to get going. You see people with different activities and all of a sudden you get that positive vibe from the nature and the surroundings, it instantly cherishes your mood. So go out there and discover something new around you, just as I did today. And while you are at it, why not morph yourself into something you have always wanted to be, but haven't had the courage to.

A poetic fight

She was a girl
He was a boy
She was beautiful
He was handsome
She was a successful woman
He was a hardworking man
She loved him too much
As he did to her.
She obeyed all his demands
took care of him nicely
He kept her happy
and showered her
often with gifts
There seemed nothing wrong
But one fine day
came along a tornado in thier life
Left by saying that
You look girly
You should grow a stubble
to look like a man.
Inspired, he was
Furious, she was.
Manly he wanted to look
Clean and class she wanted him to show
Started a series of fights
each more uglier than the other
He argued a lot
She did not stop either.
He stopped with the gifts
She stopped with the love
Finally a wise person entered
pacified the couple
neither were wrong
but neither were right
and in this fight
the woman was right
a calm talk
and a week of eating out
it took, for the man
to return to his senses
and in the end he shaved off his stubble
to look like a gentleman.
She stayed her ground
stopped cooking him
food, stopped loving him
for what she thought was right.
And eventually she won the fight.

One fine argument

I sometimes do not understand why don't women like stubble. I mean stubble clearly show the manliness of the person. The boldness, the epicness of the man is crystal clear as soon as he is spotted with a stubble.Anyway, so I had a kind of epiphany to grow a stubble. For the first few days, my wife did not mind it. But soon it became evident that she was not gonna support me for long. She kept saying that shave it off, shave it off, but I wasn't off the right mind and thus decided to IGNORE MY WIFE's POLITE REQUESTS. And thus one day like a over pressured pressure cooker, my wife burst.

"Do you know for how many days I have been telling you to shave off that ugly looking stubble?"

I know baba. But the thing is that, I really like to have a stubble. It gives a more masculine kind of touch to my body and my aura."

"Well, your aura does not kiss you or have sex with you, you get that. Better take it off."

Okay now I am going to skip some of the ugly sounding parts of the conversation, the ones I am really embarrassed about. But now I got really heated up in the argument and presented one of my best comebacks ever.

So, you fallen for the Gillete Shave it off campaign huh. What lame douchebag came up with that campaign. Facial hair of a person defines the man. It has been doing so time immemorial, and you want me to lose my identity. Look at Jesus Christ  even he had a stubble. Look at Shirdi Sai Baba, even he had a badass mustache and  a stubble. And you want me to shave  Tell me one thing. Do I not have better things to do in my life other than shave off my manliness.  What is wrong with you women folk? Why can't you let us men folk grow a stubble peacefully and comply with it. You have got to be kidding me with this shaving crap. If one fine day, Gillette ties up with Revlon and start a Shaved Men Love Lipstick campaign, will you go and buy me out some lipsticks also. Who am I without my facial hair. Not Adolf. Without my stubble, I will become a doll perhaps. If you want a doll instead of Adolf, I will get you a Barbie instead  You should go to Delhi and convince Manmohan Singh to Shave and then apply Fair and Lovely on him. I thought you could differentiate easily between a MAN and a douche bag  I just cant understand what kind of revenge is Gilette taking from us men. Gilette founder also had a badass mustache then why not me and you want me to shave. What has happened to you?

What? What nonsense are you saying? All right. Here's your pillow and bed sheet  Go sleep on the couch and enter my bed only when you have shaved off your manliness.

Okay I admit I went a bit far, but come one those were all valid points. At least according to me. Anyway, now I had to shave off the stubble cause I loved my bed too much and also it was kind of cold in the winter. So this is how my wife convinced( read:forced) me to shave off my stubble.

Transcending itself
to the center
for seizing universe.

Mistaken creatures
living by themselves
waiting to be discovered.

Why you must find us?
Our secrets
are meant to be.
Galactic hunters
salvaging planets
turn by turn.

When love was the only option.

Cold winds, darker and longer nights were the scenes that were setting up in Ahmedabad, much like Zeeshan's life. Zeeshan was a 26 year old Project Manager in one of the software companies. Being a software techie for a very long time he was quite a senoir in the office with a handsome salary, a beautiful home, loving parents, and a decent group of friends.Life was going on a smooth phase for him. BUT he was slowly reaching the so-called MARRIAGEABLE AGE of his life, and his parents were creating profiles all over the matrimonial sites, arranging meetings with girls and so on
