Reactions

He stared absently at the blur that was the street whizzing by. As the rickshaw slowed to a halt, he wished his mind would, too. No such luck.

A red Maruti 800 pulled up next to him. The child in the passenger’s seat looked at him and smiled.

He couldn’t even return it.

I liked the new header...is cool.

Isn't it weird how entangled we become in our own thoughts that we fail to grasp the moments around us. reminds me of that line - "by the time i recognize this moment, this moment will be gone..."
maybe it wouldn't have made any significant difference to us even if we had. but it is a moment of our life that's lost...

and i have noticed that your writing has become crisper with the edges nicely rounded off. there is evidence of this good mature confidence. it is less earnest, more grounded and makes for an excellent read.

you think it's about time that gaps were filled??? it seems like you're ready, you know.

And, m'dear, gaps were not left behind because I felt I couldn't write well enough. Without the story coming to me, I can do but naught.

@ The Rat.

by ready, my dearest, i meant, not writing wise...i meant temperament wise...
your writing was always good...its just reached a level now where it will just keep getting better.
you see... a certain level of 'readiness' is required to sit and write...which was what i was implying.
but yeah, if you dont seem to be getting any leads then i guess there is no other option but to wait...
