Jenny,

"I don't know if mama was right or if it's Lieutenant Dan. I don't know if we each have a destiny, or if we're all just floating around accidental-like on a breeze. But I think maybe it's both. Maybe both is happening at the same time. But I miss you, Jenny. If there's anything you need, I won't be far away."

There's a feeling of calmness.

And after all the agitation that my mind has been getting high on, this feeling of tranquility seems absurdly incredible.

So incredible that my mind is trying hard to convince me that beneath this calmness is a raging storm of undercurrents.

Maybe, being calm in spite of the undercurrents is the trick!

This time every year...

Boom!
Wheeee...!
Tadtadtadtadtatarattaratatat!
Boom!

Flashing lightbulbs,flickering flames, strong undercurrents of mixed emotions and the nudges of that familiar feeling that haunts me every Divali.

Boom!
Flash! Hmmm..
Enjoying the company of these lights, sounds and emotions with some work to keep me busy.

Schoolmates, fooling around and a few fireworks.

Divali.

E71

Amidst the idiosyncracies of a conceited professor and the servility of my colleagues, I worried about you.
I love you. Always.
Touch wood.

Caution!

Stressed nerves.
May flare up at the slightest provocation.

I depart as..

the one-wheeled cart,
the one-sided conversation
and the one-hearted love,
fall apart.

Waking up to love is like...

undreaming infinity.
