Out of all the months of the year, October is the one you can smell most clearly.
The cool breeze, clear dust free air, and the heady fragrance of Frangipani..

Now dont get me wrong, I like other months too, specially Feb and March. They are more colourful no doubt, but not nearly as fragrant.

October is what everybody wants to preserve before the harsh winters kick in.

October is what people celebrate after the dark monsoon days when it never stops raining.

October is like youth.

You know how there are days when you behave as if you have ADD..
And no matter how hard you try to concentrate there are gaping holes in logic itself. Nothing wants to make sense and all you want to do is to scream and laugh - like a hyena maybe.
Hyena is one of the most beautiful animal names. If hyena were a girl, she'd be tall with long black hair. And she'll wear gold hoops. large gold hoops. which also means she is rich. and she can drink as many cups of coffee as she wants. i want to match her in coffee. we can have a coffee spree. maybe she could be my friend. and we'd laugh. and scream. like hyenas

of faith and love

Yesterday, some friends were discussing about faith.

The more we discussed, the more we got confused between having faith, being spiritual and being religious.

Although nobody was opposed to anybody, we couldnt get to a conclusion.

And it just dawned on me a while ago, having faith is like having a magic box or a lucky charm.
It really works while you believe in it. But the moment your belief falters and u start questioning it, the magic suddenly disappears. Another corollary might be being in love. It only works if u have faith in each other. The moment you start doubting the other persons love, it disappears.

rain rain go away

What is it with the rain gods this time??
It just doesnt stop raining.

I am literally longing for some sunshine, to see some sky, to get rid of this damp air.
I want crisp sheets.

And I know i am cribbing like a baby but thats how helpless i fell now.

Yesterday at McDonalds I asked the guy if they had "Shake Shake fries"

Poor guy blinked for a second and then replied - "we only have fries, for shakes you have to go downstairs"

(for the uninformed - shake shake fries was a trial variety of fries McD had introduced a while ago)

"Despite the fact that your soul abandoned your body when you became a manager, there will still be some corporate tasks that are so horrible, so evil, that you will not be able to do them yourself. Other times you might need to do something cruel, but you won't want to leave your fingerprints at the scene.
For these situations you need a Human Resources staff. "
