To Check Out or Not to Check Out , That is The Real Question

Back when I was in school, I used to keep changing my crushes every month. Finally towards the end of twelfth grade- when it was time to decide which college you wanted to go to, I selected the college that I’m studying in now because it’s a women’s college and not too far away from home (My parents and I have this deal that I will go outside Kerala for my P.G. course).While rooting for this college, all I could think was, hell no struggle of the whole-having-a-crush-on-somebody for three years!!! And trust me, it does have its own perks. And plus you don’t have to bother about appearing nice in front of your crush ‘coz hey, you don’t have one!!

Anyway, today I had to go to my college to collect my hall ticket- yes my 4th semester exams start this Tuesday. There were a whole bunch of guys who come for CAT coaching held in our college on Saturdays, in front of our department. Really cute guys.Me and my friends had to pass these people to and fro our department. Those 10 seconds (1 minute max) were the best seconds of my life. All their eyes were on us 😀 and the embarrassing part was, we were all blushing. We tried in vain, to pretend to be in deep conversation; that we didn’t care about them watching us. But we gloriously failed. We shamelessly checked them out. We blushed, giggled, stammered… hell!! we behaved as if we were seeing members of the darker sex for the first time ever since we were born. But we loved it!!! I mean can any girl studying in a co-ed college ever have an experience like this? Never. My friend even said “sheesh, imagine if we had  mini skirts on !!!” 😀

I say it is a nice experience to ogle and be ogled at, by the members of the darker sex once in a while- as long as it does not become a habit.


Things That Makes Me “ME”

There are some things that I think makes me, what I am as a person.

  1. I am a Harry Potter fan for life. I was the age of ten, when the Hogwarts doors opened for me. At that age I thought (rather sadly, now that I think about it) that by the time I would turn twenty, I would get over this Harry Potter craze. In eighth grade I used to carry a  paintbrush in my pocket, and would pull it out like a wand out when I had arguments with people (he he, yup I was kind of crazy :D). And now, here I am turning twenty-one this coming August, and still as crazy about Harry Potter as I was when I was ten.

  2.  Another thing about me is, I love F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I have all the ten seasons in my goflex (500 Gb Hard disk 🙂 ) And I watch them over and over.
  3. As much as I love romance novels, I believe that love happens only to very few lucky people. And I certainly don’t consider myself one of the lucky ones. Hell, I  know that I won’t find my soul mate.Don’t ask to explain how I know it, I just do. You could call it my gut-feeling.
  4. I love Food. Any food. I eat  anything that is edible by humans (except snakes and cockroaches, that is just ew!!!)
  5. I love Movies and cartoons.
  6. I LOVE books and I am proud of the fact that I would rather sit and read a book, than attend a party.
  7. I am very insecure about losing my friends. I do anything to help my friends.
  8. I am a staunch believer of being yourself campaign. I hate mean popular people. ( I have a history of wearing electric yellow and green coloured t-shirts just because the “cool people” decided that the theme for some programme should be red, and because these people thought electric colours were so uncool. yea I know. I am weird.
  9. I can’t dance to save my life.
  10. I hate crowds. I don’t faint or throw up, but I JUST have to get of them.
  11. I am not an atheist, I am not an agnostic; But I won’t call myself a very loyal servant of God.
  12. I am proud of the fact that I can speak Italian. This is one of the first things I mention upon making an acquaintance.

These are some of the things that makes me ME.

Lost and Found

I’m lost.
I’m tired of pretending
To know my way around here.
Tell you the truth,
I find myself watching them waltz
From the outside.
I don’t belong in there,
I don’t belong here outside.
What I don’t seem to reckon,
Is ‘where’ I’m meant to be.
The place I’m meant to be
Right now to me seems
Like a country waiting for a sailor
To land on her and announce
Her presence to the ignorant world.
Right now – I’m lost
But I’ll be found.
One day, by God I’ll know.
I’ll know where I’m meant to be and I’ll be home.
Till then,
I’ll sit here and watch the Ball
From the outside.
The best way to be unnoticed, don’t you think?

Being Feminist

I do not know what it is about the word “Feminism”, but it seems to scare the hell out of people. It almost has the same effect that “Boo” had on little kids. I am not exaggerating. The moment I declare that I am a budding feminist, people’s eyes go wide and they gape for a minute or so, they cough and then ask me (almost in a whisper, mind you) “you are a fem..feminist?!” the moment I confirm the earlier said declaration, they acknowledge it with a nod and then straight away change the subject.

 I even had a phone conversation with my friend’s mum once. She was asking me about my syllabus and I told her that we are, presently studying Feminism and Feminist Literature in history. She immediately asked me: ” So, have you become a feminist?” the moment I confirmed the answer, she went on to lecture me about how I should never become a feminist, because it is a  Utopian ideologyI couldn’t say anything to that. Really.

Let me make something clear. Feminism is not about “hating men”. It is not about gaining rights to walk around shirtless “because” men get to do so. It is not about forcing your daughters, sisters and wives to get a job when they would rather be housewives. It is about treating them as equal rather the  other; treating them as  humans.  It is about taking their opinions and decisions into considerations when it comes to matters affecting their lives.

Like in any other belief systems, feminism has many ideologies that I can never agree to. But instead of picking all those ideologies, I ask of you all to think what it ultimately stands for. At the end of the day, Feminism does not stand for the rights of abortion but, for women’s equality.

I ask of you all to read about this movement and then form your own  judgments rather than branding it anti-social based on what society or your family has taught you. I was against feminism. And then I got to meet teachers and classmates who proved that being a feminist is not what I thought it is. And I am all the more grateful.

Love Don’t Live Here Anymore

“Love Don’t Live Here Anymore”

This is one of my favourite songs from the American music band Lady Antebellum. This song has helped me a lot during those days when I find myself gloomy over whatever it is that is bothering me. So go ahead and enjoy this song.

    Lady Antebellum- Love don’t live here anymore (Lyrics):

Well this heart of mine has been hardened like a stone
It might take some time to get back what is gone
But I’m movin’ on and you don’t haunt my dreams
Like you did before oh when I would curse your name

Well I heard the news that you were back in town
Just passin’ through to claim your lost and found
But I’m over you and there ain’t nothin’ that
You could say or do to take what you did back
Well you got nerve to waltz right in
And think what’s mine is yours again

Cause I’ve been doin’ fine without you
Forgettin’ all the love we once knew
And girl I ain’t the one who slammed that door
But now you say you’ve changed your thinkin’
But I ain’t got a heart for breakin’
So go and pick your bags up off my floor
Oh cause love don’t live here anymore

Well baby you can try to tell me how it is
And try to justify everything you did
But honey I’m no fool and oh I’ve been down this road
Too many times with you I think it’s best you go
Well I got one thing left to say
Is you can lay in the bed you’ve made

[Repeat Chorus]

Oh no that love don’t live here anymore
Oh no, no
Sugar no, no
And you don’t live here anymore
Love don’t live here anymore
And since you walked out of my door
Love don’t live here
Love don’t live here girl
Oh love don’t live here anymore

Indian Woman of The 21st Century

It means a lot of things to be an Indian woman of the 21st century. It means you can get yourself raped if you end up traveling alone for five minutes in a ladies’ compartment late at night. It means you might be groped at in a crowded bus and yet no one will stand up for you.It means you can get raped publicly in broad day light and yet the society will lecture you about propriety and modesty in clothing.

It means your country will move on to celebrate her 100th year of independence and YOU, her own daughter will still fight for your rights as her daughter. It means you will have your own mother telling you about how it is the men’s right to look at you in any way they want, but it is your duty to be careful.

It means you can get aborted if your parents feel like it. It means your parents will bargain with your future-in-laws to get your price reduced as far as possible. It means your husband gets to decide whether you should have a job or not. It means you won’t be accepted in society if you decide to live a spinster for the rest of your life.

Yep. It means a lot to be an Indian woman of the 21st century.
