Eyes Of The Beholder



The oft repeated words of love
Their lustre lost on me,
Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder,
But what if their eyes are blind
When they chance to see me?

The flowers bloom when I turn away
My tears turn the water to grey,
The butterflies see the heart
Their world isnt crowded enough
With what the people have to say.

The dawn must be coming
The dusk can't live for long.
I wait for the sky to turn to gold
The sun beating down on me,
As I start to write a new song.

See the way I smile for you
Feel the warmth, thats all you need.
Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder,
But what if their eyes are blind
When they chance to see me?

The Changeling

@ John Bauer (1913)


"My past must now be erased, my future is uncertain
The fairy child takes my place, I wander on ahead
I mix and match, don't quite belong, don't quite fit in
While life goes on and I ponder my fate as a changeling

My parents understand not my heart, I wait for the day
When I find the path to my own tribe, people I can call mine
They try to curse me, to send me back where I come from
While life goes on and I ponder my fate as a changeling"

To foster a hope in the heart, that you belong elsewhere. To know that you cannot be who they say you are. To be difficult, malicious, unpleasant, anything to get them away from you. To be wise, only to be told off by elders. To be different and misunderstood. To be walking barefoot on the forest of tangled dreams and hopes. To be a Changeling.

Old Delhi, Beautiful Delhi

Today, we all suddenly decided to take an impromptu trip to Chandini Chowk, the famous Silver market in Old Delhi. That is when the realization came that apart from silver, the place has a charm all of its own. Away from the Paranthe Waali Gali and the stalls of beautiful silver, the by lanes and shops full of beautiful and delicate things, lies a Chandini Chowk that threatens to enchant you forever.



There is a feeling in the roads, that makes you one with the crowd and yet stand out. The sudden joy of discovering a lane leading to more exotic worlds, old preserved buildings and bits and parts of a city you thought didnt exist anymore.



The lanes, the houses, the shops tucked away in the corners. The arched balconies and british lamp posts. The Purani Dilli architecture. The feeling on having found a whole new home away from home. It's beautiful.

Why In The World?

"The Fall Out Boy star, who welcomed baby Bronx Mowgli into the world in November, admits he swears too much and has made a New Year's resolution to cut it out."

Seriously? Bronx Mowgli? What did the poor kid do to you, Pete?
