I missed you old friend,
I missed you a lot.

It's been a while, you see.
It's been a while since
we have swung together,
since the time when the wind
pushed me so hard that
it wanted me to touch the stars.
It's been a while since the time
when I got tired and
went on to rest my head
on your lap.
It's been a while since
we got drenched together
in the first rain of the monsoons,
inhaling, smelling, breathing, living
the fragrance of the wet mud atop
that hill.
And that one time
when someone stole your green sweater,
and you just stood there,
cold, freezing, trembling,
in need of warmth, do you
remember that?
Do you
remember the warm hugs
that I gave you that day?
Or maybe you'll remember my
first kiss, with that blonde with
brown eyes, where you stood
on guard, making sure no one was
coming, and the coast was clear.
Maybe you don't remember
any of this, I don't know.
You don't speak, you're
too young to.

But I do know that you most certainly
remember the bad times,
the times when I wasn't there for you,
the times when I left you alone only
to be severed from your roots
just because you had grown too old.
I know I should have stopped them,
I know I shouldn't have let them
touch your beard, or your legs, or
for that matter, your heart, but
trust me, I am sorry.

I am sorry
that I was away
all this while.
I am sorry for not
stopping them from
chopping off your branches,
from stripping you bare,
from killing you.

But hey, you're alive again.
In fact, now you even have a few leaves
coming out of you, and soon you'll be
able to talk to me again.
Soon, I'll take you to that hill,
the hill atop which we grew old
together.
You don’t want to
spend the rest of your life
in this terrace garden, do you?

Soon, I'll take you away from
the city's bustle.
Maybe then you'll
forgive me, for I know that
it will be the day
you will breathe freely again.

For the love of those who made me what I am today: books!

Here's celebrating World Book Day. 💙

From beautiful narratives and cliffhangers to the help you need to avoid small talk, books are the ones that never really leave your side.
So this World Book Day, WWWe celebrate books, the magical teleportation portals that we've somehow stumbled upon.

Hope you're read-y, because we sure are.

It doesn't matter who you are. It doesn't matter where you are from.
Your colour, caste, creed, religion, country, nothing matters.
.
All that matters is what you make of yourself.

Let those dark cervices in your soul contain you. Let those dark moments have you. Let your sorrows consume you. For the answer to all the questions you've been looking for lies within.

Look inside, look for it. Find it. Believe in it.

Understand that sometimes, just sometimes you need someone to talk to. You need someone to guide you through those dingy paths.

Understand that people care for you, they really do. They are concerned about your well being. They love you. They really do.

No matter what comes your way, be it a failed relationship or a failed exam, you will end up doing something it life. You will end up with someone who deserves you. Ending your life for something that didn't last long just isn't worth it.
Crying for it isn't worth it.

People will listen to you, I bet they would, but only when you talk. Only and only when you talk.

And if no one does, try us. WWWe would love to talk to you. So, #LetsTalk, now shall we?

Plans are boring.
Pranks? Not really.

Sneak a fake spider into your sister's bag or tell your crush you love her. You could get away with anything today.

And while you're at it, WWWe, this #AprilFoolsDay, celebrate those untold stories and pranks by expressing them in words.

Here's to hoping you survive today!

Dear Diary,

It's been a while since I've talked to you, been really busy these days. I hope you don't hate me for forgetting you all this while.

What made me talk to you today? Well, today is a special day.
Walking on roads I once feared to tread on, today I finally mustered the courage to look back.

I looked back to measure the distance I've walked, to fathom the zenith I've attained.
I looked back to find the people I've lost all this while; to find my broken self, beaten down by the adversities of life, struggling to move forward.

I looked back to find my shattered dreams, the ones I hammered with the choices I made in life; I looked back to relive the memories of my first love and my first heartbreak, recovering from which, I tell you, was one tough job. It took me a lot of band-aids to fix myself, and it used to sting whenever I placed them on my wounds.

The worse? Just when I thought these wounds would've healed, I removed the band-aids to discover scars all over my skin, scars I was too afraid to flaunt.

Now that I look back, I find myself, gazing at the sky, hoping to mould myself into a successful story.

I look at my eyes, filled with expectations, expecting my future self to be smarter, stronger and wiser than what I was.

Now that I look back, I observe how things have changed, how notebooks have turned into word documents, sharing lunch into sharing profits; heart-warming greets have turned into pale business cards and playtime into boardroom meetings.

Now that I look back, with this mug of black coffee in my hand, sitting in the corner office of this twenty-eight storey office that I own, I often wonder if I made the right choices in life; I wonder as to what would've happened if I had chosen to live my dreams.

I wonder where I would be if I had chosen to sleep underneath the stars.

Sometimes, just sometimes, I wonder if I had really won; I wonder as to what kind of a person I have become.
.

(Contd. as a comment)

Today, let's just take an oath. An oath that we'll work towards merging these two dimensions. An oath to make this world a better place to live, for everyone, irrespective of their gender or orientation.
More power to y'all. 💙

From sweating in the kitchen to making people sweat in a boxing ring, you're the reason why the word 'perfect' exists. So we at WWW, thank the flawless WWWomen for being the beautiful anomalies they are.

We hope that next time around, we get to appreciate you more often, because just one day will never account for all that you do.

Here's to womankind.
