Sometimes we just end up seeing the bigger picture. Chase the bigger dream and end up missing on the small beauties of life.

And sometimes we just end up paying so much attention to the small details that we end up missing the bigger picture.

I thought I was running. Running fast, somewhere ahead. Till I saw myself pass the same people again and again. And whats funny, they were not even running. For 26 years, I have been running in circles, chasing my own tail. So much so that now I experience a centripetal force, pulling me to what my mind refuses to be true. Knows, to be false. To pursue that which is not worth it, and overlook what was there forever.

Things which come free are overlooked. Sometimes, they are the best. Price, is like a sugar coating on poison pills. Poison, that kills slowly. But steadily.

Love, the free four lettered centripetal force. Emotions. The price attached to it.

So very well put. Your definition of price is nearly poetic. So where is this Apoorva hidden the rest of the time?

#Medha: No. Its not the being awake till 4 AM side-effect. Now what were u going to write later? Or are u still thinking?

#Idea: Lets just say, I almost managed to pull off an "Ideasmithy" with this post. :)

#Bird: Your comment is as confusing as my post. But, to answer what u r asking... No. Nothing.

#Alap: Yes bro... not even the air I am breathing. :)

#Demi: Smileys and huggies back!

#Anon: Talking from experience? That happens to you? U get transformed when u get laid? Interesting.

#Abhi: U know me, I am never direct.

#Menagerie: "The hardest thing to hide is something that is not there". Deep. Got me thinking.

#Casa: True. Like I said, its the hidden price tag.

#Iyer: You are wrong. Take more time to understand it. Look at Smithys alternateidea for some hints.

#Medha (again): Trying to sound filmi..... Look deep inside your heart....

KJ: Haan haan... like I said... tried to pull a Smithy.

(Idea, u gimme due recognition & money if this phrase catches on)

#Arpi: U know me better. You think I need any publicity :-)

#Ganty: I might drink and drive, but I will never drink and blog!

#Dan: I realized I dont have a tail. So I took it easy, have some rum and went to sleep!

After much contemplation, i decided to finally post my comment..
hmm.. lemme recollect certain details...

Medha writes abt how she wakes up with a jerk; Apoorva makes a statement that maybe the guy wakes up with a jerk; Apoorva makes a post abt luv and emotions; Medha is first one to comment on him chatting till 4 am; Anonymous points the fact out.. apoorva got laid; medha wonders where apoorva is..

Too many coincidences someone might say ... oor am i missing something ?

Mayank, you are jes SOO dead!!

#Smithy: Of course its a compliment. Do you ever think I could be nasty? Specially to you?
If BIRD supports me on this, I shall campaign to add this word to the dictionary.

#Iyer/Abhi: I think Iyer is confused, so he is trying to put in words like "still no clueless" to confuse others.
Iyer, stop hanging around with the waiters at HAPPY. Bird seems to have taught them Hinglish and it seems to be rubbing off on you.

#Mayank: U Sherlock+Karamchand all put in one!! Shhhh... this news is not supposed to go public.

#Medha: Face it like a brave girl. Stop threatening people!
