Why is it...

1. ...that we shop in huge malls and then step into their coffee shops to discuss "why huge retail chains should be banned to protect the smaller players" ?

3. ...that the most opinionated Indians with regard to the Kashmir issue have not only never been there, but haven't even spoken in person to anyone who has anything remotely at stake in the issue ? (this can be extended to all civil unrests and political dilemmas with a very murky and long-winded history anywhere in the world...if there is plenty of media statistics that can be interpreted in all ways possible, then all the more better)

4. ...that we promptly write a blog about friendship on friendship's day, India on Aug 15th, mom on mother's day, dad on dad's day , dog on dog's day (after all every dog has his day) and then go ahead and write yet …

Ocean of Grief

Ocean of grief, swallow me...
How long shall I stand and watch
Your powerful waves hitting my numb soul ?

Salt - hurts my open wounds
And blurs my vision of happy tomorrows

I can't seem to turn away...
Your mighty power has bewitched me

So be kind, be a mother
Let me sleep in your deep dark bosom
Protect me with your ferocious arms
Let no one break the chains that you've bound me with !
