The Art of Bragging

I was in Mumbai a few months back, and during a conversation with Sumit over chicken (he is the only guy I know who loves chicken as much as I do), I declared that everything I do, I do it to brag about it. And I was not a wee bit ashamed to admit it. Because that is the truth!

The first time it hit me, I was cycling back home from Cochin. Now some of you might remember the first time I cycled to Cochin and then the cycling trip I took with my friend to Alleppey. The trip to Alleppey was epic. But looking back, the trip to Cochin was a mere 38.7 kms and I did it in about 2 hours. With my current physique I can do it every other day if I want to. Nothing much to brag about really.

Did that stop me from making a big deal of it? No!

25 Year Old Boy

Wordsworth said, “Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility”.

On the night of my 25th birthday, this September 14th, I was hanging with a few friends and late into the night, I found a corner and I took on a voyage through my past. I must have found serenity, because I came up with some of the best poems I have ever written.

Kittu Jayaraj. The Nicest Guy I Know.

Every now and then when we hear someone say “Life is only once, so live it up”, or “Live each day like it is your last”, we safely ignore the obvious and tell ourselves that we have time. No, not quite literally, but deep inside we tend to believe that we are gonna be around for a bit. At least for me, it won’t be the same anymore.

This March, I went to Manipal in Karnataka, with some of my friends to hangout with this guy I knew from Cochin, Kittu Jayaraj. Kittu was doing his graduation and ever since he got to Manipal, he has been inviting us to come over and enjoy the delicacies of the town.

24.

So I turned 24 yesterday, the 14th. As with most birthdays, it was quiet and nice. Church, early in the morning, cake, payasam (cheru payar, my fav kind) and lots of TV.

I had turned off my birthday on Facebook, so wishes came mostly only from close friends, and of course family. My sister made me this card which she delivered at 00:00 precisely. Family is important, family is everything, right?

What Do I Do For Fun?

Fun is overrated. It always has been and always will be. I think people do everything because it is fun. Sometimes its fun while doing it, sometimes its an insurance for fun in the future, and again sometimes we do things just to make sure that they don’t stand in the way of having fun at some point in the future.

People keep asking me this question, What do I do for fun. And it got me thinking. Truth is am not doing anything for fun. I don’t go out on weekends doing fun stuff like hobbies or traveling. I don’t stand in line to see a movie or hangout with my friends every now and then. In many ways there is no fun at all.
