I was readin Nautankeys and Sindhu's posts on their fav quotes and was reminded of the time I used to write down every quote I liked in my notebook. Usually the ones I used to write down were from the Learn your English column in the Hindu. At the end of the column they have these quotes of famous people and I used to look forward to tuesdays to read that column. And also the quotes on the second page of the Readers Digest. I regularly read them even now, but don write them down in my notebook like i used to. I guess I went through that phase.

I have gone through tons of different phases like this. But nothing became a long term thing. When I hear people say that they have been collecting stamps/ coins since they were 7 or somethin, I really get impressed. That must be really some kind of involvement/ passion/ interest whatever you call it. The only thing I have been doing regularly all these years is to read the entire newspaper in the morning before starting off on other things.…
The Last Will and Testament of the Tiger When you have stolen my skin from my entity
and removed the roar from my life
O hunter wield that thunder stick
with some grace some skill
I too have hunted and killed many many times

but every kill
was a prayer in praise of the Creator
My movements were always clear clean and merciful
Such is the way of true believers

Do you now slice slash and pare clean O Skinner
I pray only that you leave no part of me behind
to be eaten by the Jackal and the Hyena
I have ruled this forest on behalf of the creator himself
and there is no honour in a king becoming carrion

So send the sacred colour from my coat
back to the maker of sunsets
Return the darkness of my stripe
back to the shadows and the undergrowth
Send the white from my fur back to the frost of a new ice age
that it return to avenge me
Send my roar back to my maker
that he fill the univers with my rage
at this shaby end for a true king

Send my claws to the young of the high born
to save them fr…
I am back from my vacation. The end of a vacation always leaves me with mixed feelings. On one hand I feel sad that all the fun is over and on the other hand I am glad that I am back to my own house. Nothin like your own home.

Abu Dhabi was beautiful to say the least. The city has been maintained so well. So many malls to visit, so many people to meet, so many cuisines to be tried, so many things to express and so little time. Where does time run and how? I wish I could relive every moment. I wish I had a pensieve.

Dubai was huge and unfriendly. Maybe because of the people. For few days I made up my mind to settle there. And those days scared me. How can I leave Chennai? Though I am bored of my routine here, I still cherish it. maybe coz i love constancy. I can never face change cheerfully.
