Season end...

Posted: Sunday, July 31, 2011 by Stained in Labels: , ,

A battered knee, a strained ankle, a lens kaput and a new group of friends later; Friday cricket season has finally ended, 2 months past the initial date we had deliberated to end it as (shockingly) everyone still wanted to play even with temperatures soaring to 43'C by the time we ended our match. Astonishing was the passion showed by the comparatively newbie’s to our group that inspired us oldies (not age wise) to push ourselves. A month long break to recuperate from our injuries and to allow the fasting Muslims (Ramadan is tomorrow) not to miss any of the action. We might have ended on a slightly downbeat note with two members being asked to leave due to impertinent behavior but that won't stop us from returning with a bang. Looking forward to a proper 4 innings test match...

Dearth of sand

Posted: Tuesday, July 26, 2011 by Stained in Labels:


Dissolution of the musical essence of silence
Motion sickness from rocking on heels
Numinous shadows sealed to ones soul
Historical wisdom accrue the seers
Darkness within the eye lips
Spoken the fleeting moment away
Fallen before the dearth of sand
Thoughts of corpses encircle beyond
Sleets of numbers frozen midair
Counting down the crackle beneath
Stops the mist one designs
Fashion the smile all over again

Rent payments

Posted: Tuesday, July 19, 2011 by Stained in Labels: , ,

Last November, we moved into a larger house (read: 3 bedrooms) as my sister was back with us post divorce (wife beating abusing reasons). The rent till now was paid by my dad’s company but this being a larger house (we've always stayed in a 2 bedroom flat), the rent is higher and therefore the company has refused to pay the complete amount leaving us with around AED15,000 to fill in. I have an older brother and two older sisters with stable (if not well paying) jobs but knowing my dad, he'll not ask for any money from them and doubt any of them will put their foot down and give him the cash. This year has been financially a good year for me (compared to the disaster it's been before) even though my savings haven't really increased due to car and other miscellaneous expenses but I'm expecting payments (pending since last year) worth AED15,000 next month so plan to hand it over to dad or deposit it directly into his account. Let's see how this works out...

Mere Bina

Posted: Wednesday, July 13, 2011 by Stained in Labels: ,

Currently the song that plays on repeat in my head and the borrowed (more like stolen from SJ) freebie mp4 player....

Mere Bina
Rehne laga hun
Teri hawaon me
Behne laga hun

Jaane main kaise
tera hua hu
Mujhe to lagta hai main shayad tere
Dil ki dua hu

Tujhko jo paaya ahan
To jeena aaya
Ab ye lamha theher jaye tham jaye bas jaye hum Dono ke darmiyaaaaan

Shying away from those eyes

Posted: Friday, July 08, 2011 by Stained in Labels:


Shying away from those eyes
The belief...
Approval and care
Coupled before rationale
Amused - bemused
Familiar ground
Uncertain forever
Misdeeds to shatter
Drops of spice...
Left for pretense
Regret and disgust
Shying away from those eyes
The loss of a child...
Squabbling left over
Salty water
