Miles apart we continue to be, 
I'm still wondering if this gap will ever close.
For you, you know, I am (was) always there,
If only the same from you I could still suppose.

I thought (chose to believe rather) the distance would only make our love grow stronger.
Never knew your pain would be so much that you would refuse to take it any longer.

I long to gaze upon your face, to share a smile, an embrace.
But gradually I'm coming to terms with the fact,
You now belong to some other place.

Its not the same, I can see that clearly.
But still those expectations are not completely lost.
Or let's just stay I still have some hope left,
And trust me that hope costs me alot.

"It's all over and it is perfectly fine",
I say it to everyone almost all the time.
But not everything is as perfect as it seems to be,
Because someone still has to be convinced of this fact,
And that someone is me.

A smile on my face, a twinkle in my eyes.
Don't confuse it for happiness, Oh boy! I tell you.
It's there because there is still some hope, 
That one day it'll be "us" again, 
And not just a solitary me or you!

My eyes are filed with thousands of emotions, 
I wonder how can still see through!
Is it really that hard to accept 
That you mean to me more than I ever meant to you?

Or maybe it's just a way of yours, 
To keep yourself away from what is true.
And that little secret buried in your heart,
Is that you still love me too!!

It just shows a side which isn't visible usually. But this is just random poetry, feeling less.

And the fact that your not 'saying anything' says more than you ever could is not something that I don't see.

No, I am not sharing my views on (not) being committed. Yes, this is one of my (vain) attempts to keep this blog alive. No, I have not made any effort of writing in the past few months even though I had all the time. Yes, that is certainly not a very good thing. So, this is a book review. Well, not really a review, just a few words here and there since I finally managed the onerous task of finishing reading this mostly boring book. Just a few things that will stay with me. Ok fine. Yes, this is a book review.

A brief background about how I came to read this book. My dear friend for almost six years now gifted me this this Valentine's Day (much to my surprise as I did not expect him to actually take into consideration my all-time love for Eat, Pray, Love) and hoped this would give me some insight on our 'future'. Marriage was always on the cards albeit things have been extremely rocky lately. This was supposedly my anchor to rough…

Book Review - The Temple Bar Woman (✩✩✩)

Received this review copy from Writers Melon.

This book had all the qualities of being a 4 star, save the ending.
But I will get to that later.

The Temple Bar Woman is a story of a young, innocent Radha aka Rani aka Radhika Chaudhary who struggles to avenge her honour by punishing her rapist - Vikram Pratap Singh, a young politician and a spoilt brat - and his friends who gang-raped her for standing up to their shenanigans. The narrative traces the protagonist's journey from 1999, when she was just another girl ready to embrace life with open arms, till 2017, when she has become the Chief minister of Agria Pradesh.

Radha, a teacher in her father's school, is brutally gang-raped by three men and thrown at the mercy of Habiba Bi, the wicked and shrewd 'malkin' of the brothel - The Temple Bar. What follows is a series of incidents which makes Habiba Bi and Radha/Rani come together as an unparalleled force to overthrow their common enemy, Vikram Singh, and his father, Bharat S…

About Time!

Hello Lovely People (some of you are still reading this, I hope?)
Anyhow, realising how my efforts for reviving this blog have failed miserably over the last few years, I have decided to make this platform more than just a personal blog. I plan to post my book/movie reviews from hereon.

I managed to read 41 books in 2017 and have already read 13 in 2018.
I have become supremely active on my bookstagram and goodreads page.
I am reading and reviewing books like a pro!
Makes sense to use that impetus to revive this dying soul?

That's it for now.
I will be uploading reviews every 2-3 days from now on. Hopefully that will motivate me enough to keep this blog alive even otherwise.

P.S. This July/August will be the 10th anniversary of this blog. :D
