Christmas Lights.


Christmas lights
Shining bright
The stars talk of you.
I send you 
a kiss from here
With carols that I coo.

Are you too; staring out
Are the stars talking to you?
Did you get my gift from here?
Is it a white Christmas there too?

All around me people dance
Happy couples dance to air
My hands are tight
I feel your hands
Wintry, cold 
and frosty bare.

You’re my navy boy
Our pride; my joy
But you’re so far away..
Christmas feels so damn bleak
And drab; 
to my dismay.

2 months left
For you to come
It’ll be a new year by then.
Jake will be 
6 years old,
Marissa will be of ten.

They miss you so
I tell them stories
Of you coming today
But they know better
And tell me to
Stay calm and to pray.

Come back Kris
It’s been days too long
For you to stay away
We’ll wish Santa brought you home today
Without any delay.

The Christmas lights were clearly bright
But now they seem so low.
As the flakes pour over our crimson hair
I think you of a little more.


Little something I wrote yesterday. Today was a fun day with my cousins coming over and hanging out with Rumil and Roshni :)


A little Christmas weheartit coming ur way;

















MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL. STAY FESTIVE AND WEAR SOMETHING SPARKLY FOR ME :) 
love,

The late night post

It's 2:09 am; which is latteeeeee and there's school in like 5 hrs.

So what am I doing?

Well, watching YouTube videos. And probably I'll be asleep tomorrow at school. In 3.15 hrs I plan to go out running which I think will hardly happen :/ It's like suddenly I wanna run the mile; take out my running shoes; shorts and hit the road.

Another thing that I'm loving at the moment is my issshhhtupiddd hair....I'll tell you whyyyy! The hair is awesome in the wind. It's like all super heroish and even better in the city lights with my head practically out of the car and the cars zooming down the street.

What are your favorite things to do when you're bored? Tell me in the comments!

Mine would be:

1. SHOUT and fight with mom
2.SHOUT and PONDER ABOUT MY STUPID LIFE
3.Think abt Rafael Nadal every few second. No kidding
4.EAT EAT EAT
5.Play with the football till mum goes crazy and tells me to go OUTSIDE with the ball.

New found love:  walking to school; it's so amazing and refreshing.

And sports day scares me....it's weird! Once I'm all super excited and next time I'll like " I'm so damn out of practice and WHAT WILL I DO"...and there I start worrying. So I'm going out running in 3 hrs!

My whole face like all 2 fermi-acres of it has PIMPLES. IT'S frustrating; makes me feel like running a bulldozer over them; they are so discomforting and annoying and make my head look like a cheetah's :P.

So NIL...WHERE HAVE YA BEEN? I miss reading ur stuff....

ANTARAAAAAAAA Bestttttaaaaaaa of luckkkaaaaa for the ongoing tests!

The BLUE PERIWINKLE; you might as well terminate that blog of your IF YOU DON'T POST. WHATS WITH YOU..PEOPLE HERE READ UR BLOG!

And every other person out thereeeeeeee.... CHRISTMAS IS HEREEEEEEEE :P

BYE LOVE YA!

A little tour of Ladakh for you

Dear Readers,
Hope you guys are still there even though its been eons back that I've posted here. 
Well, I was busy. Believe me or not! There was this phase test, school exams, annual day prac. 
And diwali was great. Made this huge rangoli! 

Then we have our annual day on friday which is exciting. So happy times ahead, mate!
Anyway, isn't masterchef superr awesomeee. God, it's so addicting.

Phaltu sab baat choro, Ladakh pics here baby. Check out!

The ever amazing jumping pics, this was @ a monastery in Leh, just beside our guest house.
My personal favorite monastery out there. Monasteries are so calm and peaceful and have this unsaid aura.


Changla pass, 17590 ft. We had to pass through this pass on the way to the pangong lake.
Juley is namaste in Tibetian. The snowy mountains so near felt like I was on top of the world.


The pangong lake. The 3 idiots lake. It's breathtaking. No wonder that last scene was the best :)
The lake was seeing hues of blue my eyes had never laid upon before. 

Pangong tso. Pardon me and my dad's eccentric photography. We go nuts :P

These white stupas are strewn all over ladakh. This was at some place near the Hemi's monastery.

Pangong tso. Through glasses yo!
That's 0.0000000001% of ladakh for you. For the rest, stay tuned.

Some time, same place, love always

SAM B

ps. there's plans of a joint blog with Antara :) hopefully.

This is to Anuja

Darlings,

I'm crazy happy/ dancing on air happy. Had a fabulous time in Ladakh. More about that in the EXCLUSIVE ladakh post :P

But well, Anuja is this avid reader of this blog ( I have no idea why?! cos I have nothing here to read that much, you know?! )  So this is for her. Hope you love listening to this fusion over here.

Both being songs close to my heart, this is a fusion that I instantly fell in love with. And to all those bongs and the non-bongs too SHUBHO BIJOYA! Hope you had a wonderful Pujo! I did I swear.

And here's to Diwali, right on the cards!

Much love ( Anuja *wink wink* )

Pujooooo

Dear "people who make me happy",


Durga Puja is a few blocks away and I can't stop feeling festive even though the beastly half yearlies are going on. 


Durga Puja for me is: 
  • Waking up one to the intoxicating fragrance of shiuli phool.
  • Doing the rounds of Pujor bajar ( shopping for the pujas ) and asking the "Pujor Bajar sesh?" question to almost everyone I cross paths with. 
  • Craving for months to wake up to a sunny Autumn morning with the sky sketched in white
  • rolling in bed to the mellifluous chants of Mahalaya, baba shouting to me "shuru hoye geche; wake up" (It's started wake up!)
  • Wearing a new dress everday for those 4 days. 
  • pandal-hopping till I cross my 100 pandals mark, and not even complaining about the shoe bite.
  • Listening to the dhakis beat and dancing along to it.
  • the unlimited paani puri and the little detours to look for a shop selling mountain dew to boost me up for the long day ahead. 
  • The countdown to mahalaya, the star ananda superstar megastar, the annual meetings with ISHA
  • The traditional bengali food - you know the shorshe ilish, potol chingri and all.
  • Durga Puja for me is a reminder that you don't have to pour yourself into books, tuitions, and stupid exams for four whole days. Every year. ( class 11 makes you say these things. I kid not.)  That every woman looks stunning on Dashami after a vermillion bath and that if you go touch the feet of your elders you get 50 ruppee notes that end up to be a pocketful of money.
Here's sharing you a picture of last year's pujo, this was some pandal at kakurgachi.


Durga Puja '10

Watching every pandal with a different theme, pandals so awesome that you stand in awe and wonder how the hell do they do these in such short a time. 
There are the traditional pandals which stick to the very conservative pattern they have been following for years, big pandals, the thakur exactly the same each year. It's this similarity that make them even more special. 

Then there are the pandals which bring new things, new ideas, mind boggling ones that make you go wow. How in a few months time a total replica of the Egyptian pyramids go up, we have no idea...all we do is stand in queues for hours to catch a glimpse of the creation.

Hope you have an awesome puja as I myself travelling my way through Ladakh. It will be a good one. :) 

Till then, in the words of my grandmother, Dugga Dugga.

Lights will guide you home.

Hey there,

You are welcome to read my stupid rant.


  • I have a new tennis racket now. Well it's not all new, joy's racket. He won't be playing so I now have this awesome head racket. 
  • We had a teachers day celebration at school which mostly consisted of us running wild around the school corridors, staring at the seniors in hot saris and making fun of the teachers and dancing to Senorita :P 
  • My hair is growing. What relief. I'm frickin tired of my hair falling over my eyes every single time I bend my head. 
  • Writing in points is so much fun. 
  • I am finally reading Pride and Prejudice. I know..i know, stop :O ing. 
  • and watching lots of gossip girl. Serena is so badass in season 2. I'm tending towards liking Blair more. "Lonely boy" is still so hot! There you go,

  • Can someone tell me why does it seem like class 11 just started? My gawd, I have no track of time or mind, of whats going on. 
  • One day I'm in Kharagpur peacefully scooting away with my scooty, next day I'm taking a 6 hr class at fiitjee. It's creepy!
  • Had an awesome time catching up with jnan and suman over coke and yougurt, I miss my old class at times. But I guess, you finally settle down with whatever changes happen around.
  • And I congratulate my very loved Ria for the head girl honor. You know you were the best choice and so deserved it.
  • And I'M OFF TO LADAKH this puja. Hope nothing in the world blunders that plan.
  • And have you guys started your Durga Puja shopping? (Like the best festival here in Bengal, google if you have no clue!) 
Off to study chemistry, my blog's getting pretty boring and I haven't taken a decent picture in ages. Sad sad..

Listening to:


Buhbye,
SAM B

AWAY


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


So you finally let it out
You know I trusted you
But yes you had to do it
Make me feel worse too.
And here was I, seeing the angel in you.

And silly me, kept on worrying about you
Silly me, kept on thinking that I was wrong all along
Now, for all I’ve heard you do to me
I hate you for coming up and faking your sweet song.
I hate you for scaring me to think what is right and wrong.


And I will take you out of my mind
Every time I see you at school
I will shout out silent curses
For all that you’ve done from behind.
It pains me to think how to you I had been that kind!


I guess you can’t change people like you
I tried and now I know
It’s just waste of time
To clean you up, to scrub all the dirt of your soul
And then you do this to me, to someone who’s come back to you
Someone who cares for you, talks to you?

I think there’s nothing more to do,
Nothing more to say
Here is my last goodbye to you
I hope you understand that I need you to stay away.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Little something I wrote. Tell me if you thought it was completely useless. :P

Hey It's mum's BDAY. Happy Bday to her :) And that reminds me it's a happy day at home today. And I'm watching Gossip Girl of all things. From season 1. I can now understand the hype behind gossip girl. Blake Lively is a complete doll!

Cheers,
Stickin around

Quick update

There are books that you wish wouldn't end, books that are so magical that you simple can't leave them astray and even have to carry them along with you while you go to the loo :P And those are the ones that turn out to be the so-called favorite books. And this book my friend is one of a kind.  

To the lives of Rosie Dunne and Alex Stewart. I've fallen in love with your story. 


Please read the book, you won't be wrong in doing so.

And I got a makeover. They say they can't recognize the new me :P ( appearance wise ) See if you can?


And Ria don't shout at me on the phone...I literally had to keep my set a metre away and isn't this a lovely forum to talk crap with you! :D

And SHANKHA if you're reading this, I am 100% normal!

And guys out there, tune in, comment and get bored because I have nothing to offer. And BLUE PERIWINKLE, write on your blog babe! Do it now. 

I will come up with something productive next time...till then bare with me

Until my head cracks up

Letter to myself,

Hi

This exam thing is killing yo. I can understand that. It happens if you don't study throughout the time and end up with so much load in the end. You don't have to think about the results but just focus on what you're doing. Doing your best is what is important. Who cares if you do amazing in this exam. Do not thing about the result and screw your head. Thins about how much you've learnt. Even if you do really bad on Sunday, the world for you will not end. This is not the end of life. Keep on standing and please do not wreck your head thinking of EXAMS.

Sincerely,

SAM B

I will be rising from the ground, Like a skyscraper!

As I type with my deep blue painted nails, with this song in my head, I'm thinking of a lot of things.
Like how my blog is such a bore considering people not commenting other than ria because she's adorable anyways.

This demi lovato song called skyscraper is beautiful and is so deep. Unlike the other disney stars who kind of make a music star out of themselves because that's how you do it, this girl has the talent and has the voice and is quite a singer. And what makes me look up to her is the fact that she came out to the world and dauntingly spoke out about her conditions of bi polarity, going off for rehab, how she was so frustrated behind the veil of stardom she portrayed. I tell you, she's an inspiration to all those girls out there who think they're not good enough, not strong enough, not good looking enough, girls out there who have eating disorders and are hiding themselves from the rest of the world. Demi lovato, Salutes to her :)



And yes, do listen to the song, she pours her heart out in this one!

How are you guys? What's keeping you busy? And comment if you're reading. However despo that sounds but it really makes me happy listening from you people.

The unit tests are going on. Had Physics on monday which went perfectly bad, something like the worst test I've ever given at school. And on top that, there's this teacher, new teacher...that lady has such a problem. Doesn't stop staring at me. I mean the last thing I need now is being picked on by a lady. Thank you! Such a creep.

And my very own best friend went all the way to the international level of ioi2011. And that means he with 4 others represented the country. How incredible is that and he did an amazing job :) Congratulations kid! Love you idiot! And hope you had a gala time in Pattaya!

Did shopping this time at Kolkata. Bought a pair of jeggings. They are so comfortably hot ( oxymoron? :P )
I have been reading some amazing blogs this past week. Check if you have the time,

Things.

New shirt I got. It's hell comfortable
Hi there,

So, I have been busy. Class 11 is busy. I have no idea how the days are flying by. Didn't I just get admitted to this class? :P Shit!

And well, there are tuitions and work to be done, homework to be done, study systematically and then listen to motivational crap from the parents. It's this whole cycle.

But hey, I'm not complaining if days like today turn up. Where I can laugh my ahem off. Where I can get drunk from the awesomeness of life. Where teasing people and chatting with people you love just make your day. Yes, I'm not complaining today. Today was a good day.

And finally some people are back in school and have started talking to me finally. :) And I did hit the tennis courts... I am a happy kid.

Here without you


Seconds pass by, minutes do too
How can I live a life all alone without you?
Next hours will pass, days will follow by
Months..years will be gone, without a reply!

Without you by my side, how can life go on
How will I grab the moments when we were one?
When you had your tired head right above mine
When our hands were intertwined belonging to the same line.

I traced through the contours of your fingers
Memorized your whole face
Days when you'll be gone
These memories will remain in my place.

We had seen the sun sink down behind the dark veil,
We spoke how on a train, we'll go, we'll sail
With the wind blowing hard and a guitar in your hands
I'll rest my head on your shoulders, the tune in us will stand.

We also spoke about our best moments
And both of us had the same
Of being with one another
How all this evolved, how it came.

We ended it all with pouring more thoughts
Of dreams and aspirations and all that we had got
With sitting by each other, time did stop
We stared at the starry sky, through the sintex tank tops.




On a spree,
SAM B

To the special two :) I love you guys!


  • Where the rainbows end

  • I live in your arms
  • I dream of your warmth
  • I dream of the arch formed when you bend..
  • I dream of you, where the rainbows end.

  • Your eyes full of love
  • Your guitar strumming hands
  • I dream of a life that we could spend
  • If only we saw where the rainbows end.

  • I'll dance like I'm crazy
  • I'll shout out my love
  • I'll give you all, all I didn't know to lend
  • To you, for you, where the rainbows end.

    I've known you for ages
  • Your my bestest friend
  • There's no other two who can follow our trend
  • I know because we live where the rainbows end.


    • Where the rainbow starts and where the rainbow ends
    • We'll leave footprints raw after every bend
    • Somewhere over the rainbow, our hamlet will reign
      With dreams that we'll dream of, where the rainbow ends

When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.

Nadal, As I write this...shocked to my knees and hurt because you've made me believe in you SO much that I can't accept the contrary to winning. I will believe in your game and cheer for from my heart once again. Shouting at every forehand down the line, defending you like anything when people question ur game and compare you with federer, I'll marvel at you court coverage and your never-give-up attitude, your unbelievable game, your double handed backhand... But it'll take time. I'll wake up tomorrow and forget all of this but then maybe remember the whole thing again from the morning paper. I'm scared of the news. But I know we'll be back on track....you always are. Let's just hope to fight back. Regards to Djoko. He deserved this one..however hard it is for me to accept it. I love you Nadal from my heart. Amen.

In pieces, trying to pick them up

it goes on and on and on, IT GOES ON AND ON AND ON

Okay even though it's heavenly, I can't help but think of missing 2 tennis practices because of this relentless rain.Anyway, enjoy the stupid quality webcam pics. The rain here is beautiful!






Verandah. Yesterday night



Today morning. Still raining.
I have to get back to the courts, wish there were indoor courts out here. That's too much to wish for I guess considering it took them 2 years to come up with a synthetic court. Hows the weather at your place? Is it rainy?

Till next time we meet again,
Ciao

The secret life of the american teenager

Crazy stuff we do. That's me. One of my fav spots in our building.
I've been watching this sitcom for quite sometime now and loving it. Maybe by looking at it for the first time, you'll find it to be the same ol' crap of high school teenagers going wild, but this one has a message. And I've loved watching all the seasons. The sad part is season 3's over. :P And it's ended it such an unexpected note. Can't wait to see what'll happen next. I love the pair of Ricky and Amy. And I'm guessing you guys have no idea what I'm talking abt. So topic change!

Spiderman! Shankha's sick moves!



BTW the awesomeness that happened. I mean I was so damn thrilled after a millennium it seemed....Nadal winning the FRENCH. He killed it didn't he?

Wasn't even in form but still nailed it. :D

Was away the whole of last week in Kolkata...had 52 hrs of class. Never in my life have I studied that much. And Kolkata can be SOO boring if you don't have people to hang out over there. I swear. Spent the whole time watching channel V shows and re runs of each. Pathetic.

I'm living on Rasna and Aam Panna this summer. It's become soo hot this side of the earth. :P And did I tell you - My life long friend ROSHNI totally screwed our hopes of  ever achieving the best. Okay here goes her achievements....*shudders :P *
1. topped the state in the cbse class 12 boards
2. IIT ranked some thousand something
3.AIEEE ranked 500 something.


There were TV channels coming over to her place. Interviews. Over night celebrity. And we goofed around her while the genius was thronged around by journalists who ask the weirdest of questions I tell you.

Example1 : Who do you love more? Mum or dad? (How does that have ANY relation to academics? )

So you think you can JUMP?! Goluuu! Phataphati!
 ( Bengali word for awesomeness...Meher ur  tutorial continues :P)
And So she's treating us. Something to look forward to...

And I miss SOCCER. Tomorrow hitting the fields.

Bye lovelies

SAM B

So I like posing....any problem? *THE SMIRK* :P

Maya Angelou



Still I Rise

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.


Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.


Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.


Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.


Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin' in my own back yard.


You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.


Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?


Out of the huts of history's shame
I rise
Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I rise
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

I swear. This piece had me brimming with inspiration. Hope it wakes you up as much....

Sorry for being so inconsistent with the posts...But +2 is serious shit.

xoxo
