Some of the things that are so a part of me as I am of them.

Karaoke, lit fireplaces, burgers, music, movies, performing on a stage, books, candles … even better diyas, smell of crackers, the way wet grass feels under my feet.

Guitar, walking, the tinkles of a wind chime, the sound of bangles, the first rain, wet mud, romance, first flower in spring, extra large burger with extra mayonnaise extra sauce, extra everything.

Fried chicken, corn, a glass of cold water on a hot hot afternoon, riding thru’ my city on my bike, beaches, dancing all night, the way an old book smells, a genuine compliment, first salary, holding something you wanted for sooo long, house boats in Kashmir, blogs, even better bloggers.

Being me.
