it rained all day


Bleed. The florid red. Physics taught her how to extract any colour from white. Physicians trained her to paint that again back to same white. Dressing. With hundreds of whitecoats in that hall, the bleed couldn't even last  a minute.  Her cotten wrapped finger wasn't that heavy but having cornered in the crowd, he visibly was.  She understood, she was not the only one cut then.   The night was falling fast, a bit too early for the summer.  The reason that he was not around brought the darkness even faster.  With the sense of familiarity following her strongly in that room,  she found no difficulty in locating the switch to turn it on. Light.

Light is the word.  The word which emits energy; which by noun, brings illumination; by verb, burns things bright; by adjective, turns heavy negative.  Light is the word which meets you traveling three hundred million meters in one second. Light is one word which makes everything visible.

It was visible.  He attracted her.  It was also visible at least to her that she too attracted him.  The world spun full one year without disclosing it to even one ear. Year two was pathological in her book.  Pathological in its very fact that it stretched eighteen months yet was called an year.  More classes happened and more happened in classes.  They taught 'A for apple'.  Everyone read 'Apple is red'. She did learn 'Apple is also green'.

Green Apple.  The double 'ee' makes it more sweet.  Once again she thought, remembering how he remained ever an unforeseen.
(...will grow green)

Tea leaves #7

Smartwatch I hope this title needs no introduction, at least after the much googled apple's announcement.  Two sizes, twenty models and nearly twenty thousand US dollars for a gold edition, apple is in its league for an April 24 release.  It is after all a watch that the Swiss doesn't give a miss. Tag Heuer signalled its intention of manufacturing an android luxury by Christmas. Period. But how many of us have heard of Pebble? They have already made two successful (really) smartwatches that run 7 days long without charging. (while apple, sony, samsung, moto 360 and all big boys could not make it to even second sun!).  Pebble time is their next gen colour screen model, to be rolled out in May-June for the Kickstarter backers. I will write about kickstarter some time later, but its okey for now to conclude saying, one such 179$ piece will soon get shipped to my address as well. 
Smart to watch I wasn't sure about the choice when I planned to watch The imitation game. But &quo…

The Freight Flawless alone flies.  This is my first ever hands on with FedEx, or any international courier for that matter.  A little over 2 kg thing is being pigeoned for the past 3 days, with a tag of a potential bollywood film title 'Indianapolis to India'.  The convenient part of it being the mail i received on day 1 with the tracking number hyperlinked.  Just one click, and it shows you with minutes precision, the weight of it and the wait for it.  Hassle free!  And for those who are just ready to suspect me, before you have a go, visit here for the cargo.  Its really not late.  U could also pen your name on a new one paying 30$ less.  Just have to be as lucky as i am. The Fright  Let me amend it further; Flawless and Fearless fly.  On that day, Lance Klusener was flawless.  Steve Waugh was fearless.  English summer '99 witnessed a day which portrayed which one of the two prevailed.  However faint it sounds, Faith is the nearest i choose for the word Fearless.  Faith …

Tea Leaves #8

Instant print
I may be old fashioned, 'digital is great, but papers are perfect'.  The love for instant cameras started from good old toddler days.  A portrait peeping out in a minute is an unmatchable joy.  If you are with me on this, then take these picks.
As the name suggests, 'Fujifilm instax mini 90 neo' is classic. The brown coloured piece is just what you wanted. Retro looks with a view finder, bulb exposure and quite a few modes, eyes in a party can't give a miss. 150$ won't burn your pocket too. Only trouble is that it lacks any digital capacity. You can't store anything, but to shoot and print. Also, mind, the cost per print can be 20 Indian rupees per picture!
My vote though is reserved for the upcoming ' Polaroid Snap' an instant and digital camera from a company that just revived itself from bankruptcy. This one will hit the stores in four colours, print using Zero-ink technology (seriously! no ink, but heat activation of colorized crys…
