    As I entered the building, I could think of nothing but keeping my head down and get to the back of it. A shinier world was beckoning me, but I wasn’t even willing to part with the tenner in my back pocket. No. Colour, price tags, bar bills would be paid for by other people. I would only pay with sweat and blood.

    Not something that I expected to find and it was quite unconventional. But I had to buy the unique blended art so lovingly patterned upon the fabric. We are far too lost in the commercial and the polished brightness of manufactured perfection.

    But behold. Someone, a he or she, with their loving hands made this and sent it out into the world.

    Are you serious? This is what you want me to write about today?
    Okay, without invoking painful memories, I’m just going to go ahead and talk about Sudhanshu, my dance instructor. His name literally means “a drop of moonshine”, there you go, I even modified the vision for you.

  • Abhineeta commented on the post, accomplice 4 years, 9 months ago

    I’m not one to have meta-discourses of the thoughts that I have. But I suppose I do it too, even if not overtly. Girlfriends are your accomplices in such crimes against your own mind. But what would one do without them, anyway?

  • Abhineeta commented on the post, apologetic 4 years, 9 months ago

    And to think I need to say sorry for anything at all. Can one not accept the humanness of one’s condition.
    Sorry I paused for an extra second so I could think of ways to tone down my insult to you.

  • Abhineeta commented on the post, unfounded 4 years, 11 months ago

    Cat, because I decided to begin with a velar plosive. Other than that, I’m only trying to empty my mind. So that further writing ideas may not be found for another 24 hours. I’ve written too much.

    Lexical Hemorrhage.

  • Abhineeta commented on the post, stylist 4 years, 11 months ago

    I am such a sly word stylist. IT has now been put to test. Now to wait patiently and find out if my product is being bought or not. What will be said? What will be the feedback?!

  • Abhineeta commented on the post, chores 4 years, 11 months ago

    You read what you want to read. I have to do a lot of reading for my classes, which looks like a chore right now. But bless my Freudian slip and my current obsession with singing- I read “chores” as “chorus”!

  • Of late, I’m discovering yet again that I can get my hands on all things I fancy. But I can think of no creative way to acquire what I desire most, even if it is in arm’s reach.

  • Abhineeta commented on the post, entitled 4 years, 11 months ago

    Not sure what my ancestors did (crazy people), but sometimes I wonder if there’s a piece of paper in Destiny’s custody that says that my ancestors have bequeathed to me an extremely interesting life. Am I entitled to everything that they wish they had?

  • Abhineeta commented on the post, metro 4 years, 11 months ago

    The Bangalore metro, I hope, will be completed soon. I don’t want to die before commuting easily and effortlessly. But even with the horrendous traffic density, it’s hands-down the best city one can ever live in. I dare you to contest that.

  • Abhineeta commented on the post, selective 5 years, 3 months ago

    If I appear online but don’t talk to you,
    If it’s quite obvious that I’m avoiding you,
    That I’m filtering, being selective,
    Maybe it should occur to you
    That the sex was bad.

    And that, buddy, is called natural selection.

  • Abhineeta commented on the post, chosen 5 years, 7 months ago

    Who is Chosen? Dare I ask?
    Imma be an eternal Potterhead!
    No idea why people want me to read LOTR. I’m happy. And I live with a generation of equally happy Potterheads.

    Thanks :D

    Lean back. Grab your beer. I will be right there, sitting across from you on the other armchair. We’ll talk of the material, the ethereal and the abstract. We’ll make meaning of meaning and then discard it for the love of everything.

  • Abhineeta commented on the post, creativity 5 years, 8 months ago

    Really? Of all things that I was willing to become creative about, you give me “creativity”? Now I’ve slipped right into theory- and the very necessary examination of irony in the situation.

    Creativity, thou art a heartless bitch who just shot my Right Brain dead.

  • Abhineeta commented on the post, squad 5 years, 8 months ago

    Me and the girls were armed. Handbags, check. Sunglasses, check. Swag, check. The six of us walked arm-in-arm and braved the crowd. Old city! Here we come!

    And then we cleverly hid our fear of being trampled and walked into the market.

  • Abhineeta commented on the post, versatile 5 years, 10 months ago

    What we become for other people, we do not know.
    What we are, we do not know.

    We are everybody.
    We are everything.

    The randomness, the chance, the accident.
    We are infinite.
    “Versatile” is an understatement.

  • Abhineeta commented on the post, drought 5 years, 10 months ago

    I have no words to describe rainless-ness in your language.
    To lament, I need my own tongue.
    Only the words my mother made can ever console me.

  • Abhineeta commented on the post, overjoyed 5 years, 10 months ago

    Biriyani day!
    How could one possibly not be happy? I think the greatest combination of things is that you’re single, you’re reading something nice, it’s Sunday, Monday isn’t threatening you, you’re given Biriyani and you will overdose on Bollywood at night.
    Yay!

  • Abhineeta commented on the post, seldom 5 years, 10 months ago

    Barely ever, not any more.
    But even as I think of
    How I don’t think about you-
    I realize I do.
    But I don’t…
    Think about you I mean.
    Seldom. Barely ever.
    Almost tending to never.
    It will always tend to never.
