About Me

The meek shall inherit the earth after i'm done with it! I was a bored Brahmin bschooler who ended up marrying another one :) and now here we are enjoying the natural progressions of life....traffic, inlaws, bosses, kid, electricians, plumbers and money matters.

Why am I Jack's wasted life?

Everywhere we went,
we were sizing things up.

I felt sorry for guys packed into gyms, trying to look like how Calvin Klein or Tommy Hilfiger said they should.

Is that what a man looks like?

I have been spending too much time in profiling the way the others should look at me. Perception matters. But if you are a real person, you’d start feeling possessed after a while. Like what I feel right now.
I have realized that the fabric of human decision making is based on the indispensability of the beneficiary at that particular moment.

What mom makes for dinner is not what tastes good but if my dad would appreciate the same. We would be slaves to our bosses less for the business sense and more for the end term evaluation. I would like to be what someone too dear to me would want to see me as.
Then again, its all for myself in the end. Fair enough. I shouldn’t be cribbing.
Or probably, I’m just Jack’s intermittent exasperation.
