i would like to disappear.

may be then i won't have to fake smiles for strangers. i wouldn't need to step into a costume when i step out of my room. i wouldn't even have to bother about work this much. i could walk slowly and look for stars in the bombay sky. i might even find orion. i needn't bother being non-descript, i needn't wear colours that only seem grey.

and as i face the sun i can cast no shadow. (like noel gallagher says, "an invisible man is the kind who casts no shadow.")

If you didn't fake smiles for strangers, how would you reflect upon them?

With no misery, there wouldn't be a Dickens or a Sita. Feel it, hate it, enjoy it! And please keep writing about it!

Love,

Anand
