My favourite lines/quotes from a literary masterpiece :)

  • Sometimes you love only with hope, sometimes, you cry without tears. Sometimes, thats all that is left, to cling together till the dawn
  • Luck is what happens to people when fate gets tired of waiting
  • When you are sober, It's the world that's f**ked
  • do u love her ?
    Are u in love with her ?
  • Lin:"it is love a person you cannot forgive" Lisa:"Not as bad as to love some one you cannot have"
  • Karla:Happiness is a myth. It was invented to make us buy new things
  • Karla: It's such a huge arrogance, to love someone, and there's too much of it around. There's to much love in the world. Sometimes I think thats what heaven is - a place where everybody's happy because nobody loves anybody else, ever
  • we know who we are and define what we are by references to the people we love and our reasons for loving them
  • Cruelty is a kind of cowardice. Cruel laughter is the way cowards cry when they’r not alone and causing pain is how they grieve
  • A fully mature person has got just two seconds to live
  • The truth is like a bully we all pretend to like it
  • fate always gives you 2 choices, the one u should take and the one u do
  • Karla:the real trick in life is to want nothing, and succeed in getting it.
  • It's a fact of being in love that one often pays no attention whatsoever to the substance of what a lover says while being intoxicated in the ecstasy by the way it is said.
  • u can never tell what people have inside them until u start taking it away, one hope at a time .
  • Some feelings sink so deep into the heart
    that only loneliness can help u find them again.
    Some truths r so painful that only shame can help u live with them.
    Some things r so sad that only our soul can do the crying for it.
  • Its a fool's mistake to be alone with someone you shouldn't have loved
  • Guilt is like the hilt of the knife,
    which we often use on ourselves,
    love is usually the blade,
    but it is the worry which keeps it sharp....
  • the choice that you make between hating and forgiving can become the story of your life---mindblowing line!!
  • I dont know what i fear more,the power that crushes us,or our never ending capacity to endure it.
  • A dream is a place where a wish and a fear meet. When the wish and fear are exactly the same, we call the dream a nightmare.
  • the only thing bigger than the business of big politics is the politics of big business
  • There is nothin as depressing as a good advice.
  • At first, when we truly love someone, our greatest fear is that the loved one will stop loving us. What we should fear and dread is that we won’t stop loving them, even after they are dead and gone.
  • Fate’s way of beating us in a fair fight is to give us warnings that we hear, but never heed
  • Some men like you less,the more they owe you. Some men only really begin to like you when they find themselves in ur debt
  • Every virtuous act has some dark secret in its heart and every risk we take contains a mystery that cant be solved
  • Most of us are tough because theres a kind of toughness found in real sorrow. We’r honest, because the truth of what happened to us wont let us lie..we’r angry because we cant forget the past or forgive it….and we’r lonely
  • If fate does not make you laugh then you just don't get the joke

Rise ye Reds...The Theatre of Dreams awaits

I am a frustrated soul. Why? You may ask. Is it work? Is it the afternoon shifts? Is it the CAT preparations? NO, no and Hell NO!! I’m frustrated because the love of my life, my beloved Liverpool F.C isn’t at the top of the EPL. There is nothing more frustrating then watching a Liverpool side lose to Bolton Wanderers and Everton…wait there is…watching Liverpool draw 1-1 against Blackburn at Anfield. All the hopes that we Reds saw after the Charity Shield seem to fade away every weekend. Goalkeeping blunders and shaky defending by the otherwise awesome defenders have cost a lot. 7 matches played and only 2 cleensheets. Well the stats don’t speak well of the form that the Liverpool back four and Reina are in right now. Fabio Aurellio is still struggling to adjust to the Zonal Marking System. Pepe Reina is in a wretched goalkeeping form. Football pundits are adding to Rafa Benitez’s problems by being overcritical of the squad rotation policy. With these and many more problems galore, Liverpool are traveling this weekend to Old Trafford to meet their greatest rivals - Manchester United

The Red derby is always special-full of passion, hard tackles, tempers flying all around the park and some Man U fans trying to heckle the visiting fans during the chant of the holy mantra-YNWA. I remember Man U fans booing the visiting Glasgow Celtic fans for singing “You’ll Never Walk Alone”. The feeling is mutual, and the Red Devils are always in for something scarier than hell when they walk down that Anfield tunnel, look at the “THIS IS ANFIELD” signboard that has made many other teams crap in their pants and then walk out on the pitch to face music of the KOP. The venue for this weekend is however The Theatre of Dreams- probably the place to start fulfilling the elusive dream of capturing the Premiership.

For me, this is the make-or-break game of the season for Liverpool. People might say that this is just a game and there is a lot of football to be played. But the outcome of this game will definitely have an impact on the morale of the players. Man U are a team who won’t just beat you, they will make sure that they destroy the iota of confidence that you possess in your abilities. Ask Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal about the night they went 49-0 unbeaten to Old Trafford and came back with their shoulders drooping and haven’t won a title since then. Ask Jose Mourinho…his star studded line up hit a low for a while after their battle against United last season. So, a loss on Sunday would shatter any remaining hopes of bringing back the Premiership to Anfield…but a win could turn the entire season around.

What Liverpool need is inspiration. They need to treat this as the game of their life. It’s going to be a war and they must battle off all the pain that will be inflicted in the 90 mins. They need to bounce back on their feet if they are knocked down, I guess they will be...Rooney hasn’t scored in ages and the signs look ominous. Liverpool need to mark him down. Bring him down hard…that’s the only way to stop the raging bull. Well, if Rooney hasn’t scored, then so hasn’t Stevie G. Liverpool’s General must fire…nah..he will fire. Liverpool need inspiration and Gerrard needs to give just that. The contest will also be a battle of the super subs…Solksjaer and Garcia. Say whatever you want, Luis Garcia is effective. If Gerrard is credited for inspiring the Istanbul and Cardiff comebacks, then Luis Garcia is the guy who made the trip to those cities possible. I hope he has some role to play in this contest because he lives for big match situations.

Whatever, it’s going to be a treat to soccer fans as usual, and a Reds win will change their fortunes for the season. As usual, I shall be on the edge of my seat…ready to jump off in ecstasy when Riise, Gerrard, Kuyt, Alonso and company thump in one of their trademark bolters. As a true red, I’ll make sure that they won’t walk alone :)

Mary Jane


She's 21, beautiful and innocent as she walks down the aisle
With a radiant face, twinkling eyes and a mesmerizing smile
They look at her in awe; she's the most beautiful thing in the room
As she walks towards her man, her prince...the world’s luckiest groom

Look into her eyes, they speak a different story, a tale her smile can't tell
Deep inside those twinkling gems is regret, unshed tears for the hand she once held
"If only I had stayed by his side, if only I would have given us a chance", they mourn
"Why my Lord do I still love him",she weeps,"Why do his memories make my heart burn"

With every step that she takes, her mind wanders to the days by the lake
And her body shivers by the thought of his touch, the love that they used to make
His memories still haunt her, for days she hasn't slept
"Lord, help me stop loving him,for the choices I made weren't mine",she wept

She reaches the end of the aisle; it pains to hide the tears with a smile
She looks up at the best man…their eyes meet for one last time
Their eyes speak volumes, its time for some closure, its time to say goodbye
“I do!” she says with a smile on her face, I guess not all love songs rhyme
