I was readIng a novel around a year ago. "A bag of bones" by Stephen KIng. The protagonIst there was a wrIter and I swear to the Holy Cows he suffered from , what they call a "WrIter's Block" for around 120 pages. 

It was a major task belIeve me, to get past those 120 pages. I slogged day and nIght for hIm to get over hIs dead wIfe and start wrItIIng. By the one hundredth page I thought I was suffeIng from a "Reader's Block". I couldn't go on a step further. But then I saw 'Courage the Cowardly Dog' on CN and I was InspIred. I went ahead wIth It and found out that the guy fInds a new babe wIth a kId In the country. 

Well the story really took off from there. WIth a lots of twIsts and turns and a lot of "Spooky" actIon It had a bIttersweet endIng. 

Why am I tellIng you all thIs?? I don't really know. I've been held on GunPoInt to wrIte somethIng. There's a lot goIng on at present... 

1) IndIa Is on a wInnIng streak agaInst England In the ODI serIes. 

2) Its almost December and I've not yet seen wInter. One of the reasons I don't lIke B'bay. Btw Its been almost a year and a half... :( 

3) "Job's a joke n I'm broke" Is to be the background lIne of my professIonal lIfe. 

4) I've been very 'happy happy gay gay' sInce quIte a few months now... but then "Dostana" released... and I've been very 'happy happy' sInce quIte a few months now. 

5) I celebrated my bIrthday a few days back. StartIng It wIth a lovely wIsh, to cuttIng pastrIes to openIng gIfts to recIvIng awesome testImonIal to goIng out wIth a frIend to a dInner wIth the famIly. 

6) I've been actIng very "out of the normal" these days. *detaIls not to be gIven* 

7) Bombay (btw I lIke It better than MumbaI) Is under a terrorIst attack. Its been more than 24 hours and the fIght Is stIll on. Its stupId and horrIble. The bIggest terrorIst attack on IndIa tIll date. 

8) I'm excIted about a lot of stuff, and more excIted about the others. 9) I'm tryIng to wrIte but I dunno why.. I can't.. MIght be sufferIng from a "WrIter's Block"...!!! 

Just thought you should know.. 

Btw... How ya doIn...?

Peer Pressure

Its not somethin you read about in books
Its bigger meaner and a lot worser than it looks

You often don't recogonize
The simplest forms of this
cause the pressure's almost always disguised.

"Go on. Take a smoke"
Thats not peer pressure
We're not dumb enough to dope

"Cancel plans with your mom
Go with us instead"
A Seemingly insignificant sentence.
But darlings, thats peer pressure

'Talk to her or hang out with us'
We're given the choice
we still don't know who to trust

Friends or family?
The decision's impossible.
But thats what we're expected to make.
Now tell me
Why are we quiet about this
Almost making it seem like its acceptable

"Forget that look,
you look bad.
Don't bother us with your poems
They're always about when you feel sad"

That may not be sentences from our friends
But its pressure anyway
Cause our talents are supprsesed
Our dreams are pulled away
