Vanity Card


They weren't not in love. It's just that the subject, as such, never really came up. It kind of loomed over them like a blissfully stupid cloud. The love cloud

                              Guaranteed to rain on your brain, 'til you're
                              moanin' with seratonin

Maybe what was happening was that they were in love with the idea of being in love. But that's still love right? Instead of loving each other they loved an idea. An aspiration. A wish. The other person was more or less of an afterthought. Somewhat expendable, or at the very least, interchangeable.

                               I love that you make me feel like I'm in love.
                              You, on the other hand, I can take or 


Of course, it was just a matter of time before the truth of each other, the hard fact of their unique selfness, their one-of-a-kind snow-flakiness, became unavoidable.

                               I may be a broken toy but you are a 
                              Chinese crib factory that uses lead paint.

 Saying goodbye in these circumstances is always very awkward.

                              "I just had your car towed."
                              "That's okay, those Flip videos I said I erased
                               are now on the Internet."

    I’m writing you on behalf of one of Hyderabad’s top city guide and recommendation websites: and I would like to invite you to be a contributor.

    At this moment, I’m trying to amass the magician word-wizards of Hyderabad city under one umbrella i.e. CityHyd. With this opportunity we are trying to build a community of Hyderabadi bloggers expressing themselves on regular basis on a single platform. The idea is simple- You get to express yourself on CityHyd and we give you enough credits to drive up your readership.

    If you would be interested, kindly drop me a note please-
