Funeral Blues

30 November, 2006

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drumBring out the coffin,
let the mourners come.

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He is Dead.
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now; put out every one,
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun,
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods;
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

W.H. Auden

I heard for the first time in the movie Four weddings and a Funeral and wanted to save a copy. But never never made the time to. I saw the movie again a couple of days back and these words came back to haunt me.
There are certain moments in life when certain things happen and they fill the space perfectly. Other times go unnoticed and the due respect it needs is lost...
Keep a watch... A Thunderbolt may strike You anytime and any place...

the dark and barren land
quick change and the quick sand
times running out
to where does your loyalty due
worshipping a goddess who never knew
the true value of a man
who wont understand and never can!

Went to a pub/ disc yesterday! not bad! Kinda reminded me of Hint. Wished Killi was there. She would have loved it. it was like a west wing in a castle... purple and blue lights. with a screen for text messaging. one which stood out in my mind was "smile if you love sex!!!" i think everyone was stifling a laugh. And i am sure people wouldnt have been so much as bothered about it. (not yet a culture shock, jus difference!!!)
its all about the company in the end. So is the person you want to marry. why should going to the pub be any different???
there is no point to this ramble...

Dieu et mon droit

"What about queen's crown? the kohinoor was brought from India." "This is the symbol for what again?" "what does it say?""just a second i was want to drink some juice" "i just made that up!!!" "it was a wild guess man"
"which one of the queen's sons is still married to the first woman he said i do too??" "All the sons and daughters are ugly" Barbara: "Antony what exactly do those french words on the emblem say???" "Diana was a saving grace" "Dodi Fayed must have been one special guy" "The jewels are in the Tower of London and you can pay around 10pounds to see them..." "Boy! thats a lotta money to see it.. go there steal them thats big money.."
Antony:" well it is translated as God and My Right!" "the anthem goes God save the Gracious queen not good ..." "the jewels are not in the buckingham palace? so weird!"
Barbara:"*Smiles and bows her head in adoration*"
God speed!

(Antony and Barbara are married for more than 20years. Met late in life, they have no children and have worked in china as english teachers)

Men Drive

21 November, 2006

If the question "what women want?" is unanswerable then try answering the question "what drives a man to do what they do?"
This post is an outgrowth of ponderer's post which poses way more questions than answers that women are looking for.
ALL i can (and i have tried an aweful lot) that men KNOW for a fact that the only way to hurt a gal is be ruthless with her feelings for an issue or the person himself. Its the inherent animal predator instinct to hit where it hurts the most. and the worst part is so does a woman but the ego part of a man doesnot allow him to express or accept the fact that he is hurting!
I know i am sounding merciless as well but thats how it has happened to me and it could be different for u!!!

what to do???

19 November, 2006

i am so restless today
boredom seeping thru my skull
i want to get up and run in the cold and also to sleep tight in my bed
sitting in front of the computer in the library(shocking i know)
reading,nearly done with murder in the cathedral(doubly shocking i know that too)
t.s.elliot should stick to writin poetry... its jus in his way of creating mindblowing poetry!!!
debating with heart of darkness!

past breaks its coffin
fastened and nailed
sealed in the gravel so plentiful
in memories forever caged and jailed...

au revoir...

Pride and prejudice

I rest my case!

Leap of Faith

Head of the alive
falling towards the foot of the dead,
from the word of begin you left me,
right till the very end.
Darkness merged into black,
the white light beckoning...

Bright, bright light
warm, so warm
I scramble towards it
fingers tingling
a leap of faith...

Word over all, beautiful as the sky!
Beautiful that war, and all its deeds of carnage, must in time be utterly lost;
That the hands of the sisters Death and Night,
incessantly softlywash again, and ever again, this soil'd world:...
For my enemy is dead--a man divine as myself is dead;
I look where he lies, white-faced and still, in the coffin--I draw near;
I bend down, and touch lightly with my lips the white face in the coffin.

-Reconciliation by Walt Whitman

07 November 2006

I committed a HUGE mistake. I read some of my old mails from my friends. Mails written at different points in time.
I could almost see and feel the change in tones, what exactly is being said and how it could have be misleading and misunderstood(it was misread by me, leading to unwanted assumptions)
Its not that I suddenly have become mature or any gr8 stuffing but its the clarity with which you can visualise the mistakes uve committed, the wrong decisions you have made, the twisted path taken to attain salvation but never reached there. You get to that higher plane cause you have lived through the repercurssions.
I hate it. Nothing can be done except I am never gonna read them ever again!

I am NO chef nor one of those academic experts(who just study and not usually practice!) in the art of calming down the grumbles and the rumbles of a hungry stomach but i recently realised that SALT, this soft white and powdery substance that could be mistaken for mashed dried up white paint(wonder y anyone would mash paint and substitute it for salt???), chalk powder, or even cocaine(where where where???;-) could actually decide the fate of the comments ure gonna finally receive for all that cullinary magic!
So now that i wrote a whole post about how great S&S are in the kitchen i would like to highlight the fact that both of them ask me to add salt to their dish.(WHAAAAT? i dint write anythin abt them,well thats ok.. il summarise thay cook well! there its in my post!)
Now eyes back to me! so what was i saying? Nothing significant actually...
  • Salt-most important ingredient in any dish, should be accurate for desired result;
  • S&S are great cooks, yum dishes!
  • I PUT THE SALT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bon Apetite!
