I

It was raining as I walked home today. I was walking into the strong wind.

It is THE most precious and cherished action of my life, when I walk in the rain. Together, the rain and the wind make me complete. I love it because, for a fleeting moment, within that moment, I can be all alone. It is a moment, just for myself. I don't need to share it with anyone. I don't have to be anyone's version of me. I can be me for that one moment. I am the way I was made. And only I know it.

There is nothing to think about. There is nothing to do. No one else to care for. No one else not to care for. Just me... Just me...

It is the moment, when being alive seems great (though I know, in sometime, it MUST be followed by its antithesis...)

Kurt Cobain said: "It's better to burn out than to fade away." I realized very late in life what that meant.

But let's leave that for another day.

It was raining as I walked home today...


Song For Tonight
Akele Hain Toh Kya Ghum Hai - QSQT
Akele hain toh kya ghum hai...
Chaahen toh hamaare bas mein kyaa nahin...
Bas ik zaraa... saath ho teraa...
Tere to hain hum... kab se sanam...

Ab ye nahin sapnaa... ye sab hai apnaa...
Ye jahaan... ho... pyaar kaa...
Chhotaa saa yeh aashiyaan bahaar kaa...
Bas ik zaraa... saath ho teraa...

Tere to hain hum... kab se sanam...

Phir nahin tootegaa... hum pe koi toofaan
Saajanaa... ho... dekhnaa...
Har toofaan ka main karungaa saamanaa...
Bas ik zaraa... saath ho teraa...

Tere to hain hum... kab se sanam...

Ab toh mere saajan biitegaa har din
Pyaar ki... ho... baahon mein
Rang jaayegi rut terii adaaon se...
Bas ik zaraa... saath ho teraa...

Tere to hain hum... kab se sanam...

Just forget what Kurt Cobain said. He was a sell out!
Whatever he did was for showbiz and MTV is a bitch.
It squeezes out every ounce of life from an artist and
then kicks him away. They best they can get u is ..people
listening to ur songs on their way to office or when taking
a crap or when doing work.

Neway getting back ... walking in a cool rainy evening
really brings an awesome feeling of calm and peace.. especially
when u are in no rush to newhere!
