You know what I'm saying :)

Okay don’t crib about the photograph.

Do drumbeats and waterfalls go together? I think they do. Maybe that’s what you hear when you look at waterfalls but then, you probably shouldn’t share it.

Hrithik Roshan was on TV, promoting Kites. He said Dhoom 2 worked because it was an honest film.

And then he said something that made me nervous. Although he was the one chewing gum all through the interview.

Hrithik took me back to this afternoon near Hyderabad. I was in this car with a colleague in HR, telling him how I had wanted to buy a castle in Scotland someday. He chuckled and said, “Yeah, yeah... it might have come true, yes. But now that you’ve said it.. well.”

I would love to blame it on him if things don’t work out.

Then I’ll make myself believe that I never really needed a castle in the first place because of “The Selfish Giant” and how scared Enya looks when she comes out of her castle and how I am a student of Psychology and therefore, should not be hiding from people like that. And then, when all else fails, I will delve into metaphors and talk about castles in terms of chess lingo and how it’s basically all about protection and sometimes about partly Scandinavian hotties like Stana Katic from the Star World show, “Castle”. And maybe, I’ll miss the point altogether. That the whole obsession began with the fairy tales I read and then assumed a nationality when Mel Gibson’s Braveheart won him 5 Oscars and swept me off with James Horner’s soundtrack and everything Scottish and that, well, I have been floating ever since. And that I am too stubborn to admit that I had a dream and that it’s just changed with time. Or that I still don’t have that kind of money. Or maybe I just don’t know who would be impressed with what all I had to do in order to purchase the castle. My friend suggested I read “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne to focus on what I want. I guess the trick is to convince the Universe that you’re not looking for it. That’s when it drops into your lap. It’s a bit like watching an R rated movie through the cracks between your fingers when you’ve been forced to cover your eyes with your palms.

So there’s this shop in Khan Market called “Happily Unmarried”, with “Rude Zodiac” mugs for all. You know what mine says? That I am honest to a fault, only because I don’t know how to cook up a tale.

I really don't know what I'm saying. But I think I brought all this up because there are people like you in my consciousness. People who make me feel like my consciousness is still mine alone.
