That one time
When I showed you leaves
You replied
They were birds tied from another age
You held me

My brush strokes carefully planned
Until you came along
With your spirals
Mayhem on the canvas

I always lived passively
Until you made me the victim
From the spectator to protagonist

Nestling me in your lap
Gifting all pains at once
Never disappointing me
Cajoling me into
Taking arrow after arrow
Laced with sweet poison

I always knew the end
You were unaware
Yet walked us to it

Years later I would tell you
And you perhaps
Would say the same
Release me

Towards the end of 2012, I met these awesome people(Trilords) in person, in one of the most awesome places(SIGs) and had one of the most awesome times of my life.
I was overwhelmed in the starting of 2013 with the efforts such wonderful seniors had taken for us, a feeling which was only to increase with passage of time. I became great friends with them, and then came the BootCamp. Undescribable. Or probably best described with the facebook statuses I updated then.
Had this amazing trip to Andaman and Kolkata, two brilliant places. Both reminded well of the colonial past, and treated with cherishable sights and experiences.
Andaman, a very laid back, pristine and enjoyable place, and Kolkata quite the opposite. And visiting them with your childhood friends and families as close as your own was incomparable.
College activities, projects and exams happened at their own pace.
Had this new found interest in programming, that was interview oriented. Had chacha's wedding during ex…

Life has been great this year. Been through many ups and downs, but one thing has been constant and I wish that part of me stays constant throughout my life.

The year started on a sad note, with me failing in something important to me. Got back up on the saddle for it. Faced yet another failure. Got determined to face it one last time. Worked hard, harder than I've ever worked towards something. I believe I'll be successful this time, but even if am not, I'll be glad that I did recognise that I can work hard, rather than being just a lazy bum.

On the work front, it has been the same old story, with ever rising targets and ever lowering efficiency. Peo…
