The Lines Have Blurred

The Lines have Blurred The Blurs have Lines And somewhere therein Lies Life. Boundaries, Rules, Grays, Rights. It’s all a bit Black but White Hell yeah, that’s Heaven I see In every single moral victory But then I see, And I see again The Moral seems a-moral from Here But Here is Here And When […]

Waiter, Waiter!

In 1993, I woke up one fine afternoon and found myself wearing a Navy Blue suit, standing in a 200-seater restaurant in Mumbai … apparently I had taken a job as the Restaurant Manager and so there I was supervising 17 people segregated as follows: one accountant cum cashier, seven waiters, two captains, one… via Waiter!

Existence

Found one of my old note-books from school-days with these questions. I believe I started asking these after my Sacred Thread Ceremony in 1982. Some, I have been able to answer to my satisfaction, some answers I am still pursuing some questions have ceased to be relevant. Seemed like a good idea to revisit this […]

Staying unbelonged

I write for myself. I share my writing for others. Writing is the most intimate manner in which I share my life. All other forms of sharing are part-truth since they are tailored for the situation, for the person, for a goal. I write to formalise my learning, to learn more, to see my questions […]
