An Excuse to Write
Friday, May 19, 2006
I miss my brother for one very important reason. He is my black hole for gossip/opinions/theories - whatever I tell him stays with him, in a galaxy far far away from mine. Nothing I tell him is likely to come back and bite me. Now that he's away, I have to remind myself to keep my mouth shut. Sometimes I forget other people talk too. I could've avoided some recent faux pas if I'd just called him up and vented.

Its not that I don't have anyone to talk to outside my house. I thankfully get my regular dose of conversation and random small talk, just not with anyone as perfect as my brother. You need someone like that - who you can just tell (almost) everything on your mind, who's biased towards you, who's known you (relatively) forever, and who will laugh at your stupid insider jokes and vice-verca. Plus, bhaiya analyzes the smallest thing as much as I do; so we can talk for hours.
That happens with Siblings esp. ones who are very close. Me and my kid brother have a similar story... He's the inventer/doer and I'm the talker/dreamer. Are you 20, your writing doesn't reflect that!! I guess some people are writers (born or nutured).

P.S. : By the way, I found your blog through 'The Moral Animal' readers link of blogspot.
The RSS feed for your blog is not working. Just thought to let you know.

line 4, column 0: This feed uses an obsolete namespace
[xml snippet]
feed xmlns="" version="0.3" xml:lang="en-IN"
I don't know what's wrong with it. The feed's generated by Blogger by default. Firefox is giving an error, but it works fine in Opera as well as Netvibes.

"You write because you need to write, or because you hope someone will listen, or because writing will mend something broken inside you, or bring something back to life-" - Jay Makintosh (from Blackberry Wine) I need to write. I need to rearrange and refine sentences. I want to ponder over how to put that thought in words; so that it fits in the scheme of things just so. Words can create magic and I want to get lost in them for some part of each day's life.
