a blank white wall stares at me.
a bored white wall stares at me.

i rub off some whiteness,
and stare back, bored and blank.


of random words and arbit conversation.
of pani puri and veggie delite.
of chocolate and loss-of-weight.

from putting sharpened pencil ends jacket hoods
and literature text book commentary
to calvin and hobbes and time magazine.

of sunsets and funky light pictures.
of haircuts and shopping.
of movies and schindlers list.

from love and hate
and insipid smiles
to love and hate and sarcasm.

of being cute and wanting to be sexy.
of getting drunk and dancing.
of corny forwards and songs in mid-conversation.

from kanki and rv
to maths-b and physics
to rebecca and miss universe.

of child labour and long drives with discmans.
of surprise parties and banana milkshake.
of mirchi bajjis with onions, and them with chole.

from goa
to delhi, dehradoon
and mussoorie.

of arguing about aspirations,
of talking about where-the-c-key-is
of discussing terrorism.

from innocent school girls
to irresponsible eighteen year olds.

for chickoo.
you're the bestest friend i've ever had.
