Yesterday, when I reached back from work, I saw Amulya jumping up and down from the bed loudly telling her friend, over the phone, about her first day in college.. She sounded so thrilled to not have to wear the same boring uniform, to not be asked to walk in a line, to not be told she had rules to follow. Simply put, she was so happy to have been finally treated like an adult!
Oh I look back at my time in college... was I really an adult? I definitely didn't dress like one!
Unless you compare me to a Hippie! :p As her conversation moved on to discussing her 'look' for the next few days.. I started recalling my favourite wardrobe pieces.
Its not even funny how my roomie used to threaten me that if I wore that Red printed Goa - top one more time, she would really burn it! Its still lying in one of the corners of my storage closet testimony to the fact that Madhur never did succeded with her evil plans..!
Infact, I must have commited the crime of the century, when I confidently walked into the Lakme Fashion Week venue wearing that top, complete with the yellow 'hare rama, hare krishna' stoll over some khadi Capris!
You should have seen the looks I got! Well, atleast I got noticed in a sea of Guccis and Pradas..
Those days were truely fabulous days.. I treasure them just as much as I treasure these souvenirs from the past. Maybe i'll actually wear them one of these days!
... Oh, who am I kidding?
Much love! ;)
Its a grey morning... i woke up to a beautiful, chilly, cloudy day! Just enough time to change my nail paint from a faint lilac to chicken yellow! Its such a perfect color to bring a sunny cheer to a cloudy day. My Green t-shirt and purple pumps look extra bright today.
I'll just let my yellow talons busy on something other than this blog for a while..

Its raining right now. Bjork is blasting from my speakers saying something like ‘I play dead, it stops the hurting, i play dead, and hurting stops’ and I’m feeling quiet the same.. the long, long wait for rains finally comes to an end. The moisture laden earth invigorates every corner of the city as the summers very politely bid adieu... There’s hope, there’s life and there’s a reason to dream again of a cool, grey morning.
The rain drops lightly tease me as they find their way inside my window every time the wind blows. My mind finds it hard to focus on anything else.
The music in background is changing but my soul is on its own trip, enjoying the perfect harmony of nature. I dream of green pastures, bright colors, all seemingly brighter against the grey skies... the sudden thunder, cold flirty breeze and drenched body with dripping hair...The beaming smiles, the music of raindrops, the dancing of heartbeats – so many joys wrapped in the veil of rain!
Its calming just as its reckless, its fast and then its slow… it thrills and excites.. its like confetti falling from the sky.. like suddenly there’s a reason to celebrate!
Oh how much would I love a Miss Marc Vinyl clear tote on a day like today..... ;)
Much love! :)
Ripped and torn right from the middle.
Burnt and bruised, whats left to consider?
Pleaded and screamed, this is a new level
Stitched the wounds, are you the forgiver?
Tarnished and rusted, I risked it all
Satan or God, for whom was i born?

As the night dissolves in the light of the sun
A mother will lose yet another son!

The tingling down my spine,
the chilly breeze upon my cheek
My eyes strain, My hands search
I know I'm getting Near..
Heaving sighs, salty air,
the dew twinkles on the leaves,
rubbing against the flowers and thorns,
I'm crossing the garden, my dear..
Closer to the light, I stand at your door
