Every weirdo in the world is on my wavelength

Lovely! 🙂

“Every weirdo in the world is on my wavelength.”
― Thomas Pynchon



It’s a rather lovely experience to connect with someone else on a subtle level. It’s a communion of being, no need to say or do anything, the communication is there, effortless and easy.

You feel at home with them and they with you. You can be yourselves, as is. No need to explain… ah, such sweetness in that!

For me that usually happens when I meet a weirdo, because I am a weirdo.

A real weirdo.



“THE EDGE, there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.”

The other day you asked – When was the last time you felt really, truly lonely?

I considered answering, but then I figured you probably…

“We thought we’d never come back from that one.”

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Use It or Lose It.”

Write about anything you’d like, but make sure the post includes this sentence:

“I thought we’d never come back from that one.”


And I knew that I was going to write about you. Like we have discussed a million times, we always knew that we would be great friends. It just a gut feeling that I had when I saw you in our hostel lounge.  Crazy times, huh?!

Over the last many years, we both have found a friend in each other. It is refreshing to think about those simpler times of our lives. We were such hard-headed fools. We are better now, I guess. It was fun though. We loved, laughed, cried, and obviously made each other cry.  The proofs are still there somewhere, buried in that pile of letters and emails that we wrote in the heat of the moment. That intensity and honesty surprises me. More than anything else, we were faithful. We have been faithful.

We have had our moments of “You are my best friend in the world” and “I want to kill you”. Too many of them ganging up on me tonight as I write this piece gratefully and with utmost sincerity.

I can think of a hundred moments when it felt like we could never get over that kind of innocent betrayal (yes, betrayal, as we understood it then!) I am proud of the friendship we have today. It is so much more than what we could have ever imagined.

We thought we’d never come back from that one… but we did… we did it consistently (hope that I have not jinxed it by saying it out loud!) Nothing is ever going to change so much that we are not friends!!



Why Are You So Nice?

Liked it! 🙂

Catherine Zhang

Sometimes I wonder about nice people

Do they know just how delightful they are?

Do they make an effort to be that pleasant?

If they’re conscious of their niceness, why do they choose to be so?

But then I wonder, are they actually nice?

Or do they just want to be known as someone who is warm and benign on the outside,

so that they’ll be more liked?

And then I ask myself whether or not it’s bad to make an effort to be such a pleasant person

Purposely saying nice things for the sake of being nice

Is it because they figure there’s already so much hatred in the world,

Or because they were taught that that was the correct thing to do?

But no one can be 100% nice.

Sadness and frustration always chips away at the shell of politeness and happiness

Do they deal with stress very…

Daily Post: An offer I couldn’t refuse- Timed to perfection!

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Race the Clock.”

Here’s the title of your post: “An Offer I Couldn’t Refuse.”

Set a timer for ten minutes, and write it. Go!

Today was one of the most hectic days of my life: mentally and physically. I missed my old friends terribly. For some reason, I wanted company constantly throughout the day. I wanted to be around people who know me and have accepted me for the person that I am.

So for me, an offer I couldn’t refuse will be the unlimited access to Floo Powder or the ability to Apparate ( Reference: Harry Potter). This would make things so much easier.

I can stay at home. Say no to homesickness.

I can meet friends when I feel like seeing them.

I can travel and explore different places without having to drive. (I am not fond of driving. I am more of a passive passenger and sometimes I pray that the driver forgets the address so that I can keep daydreaming while looking out of the window. So no driving!)

It will make my life easier on so many levels.

An offer I couldn’t refuse will be somewhat like this

Dear Mekhs,

It has come to our notice is that you are missing your family and friends. You have frequent bouts of homesickness and it has affected your quality of life. Hence we have decided to give you a magical power, something that might make you the happiest person on this earth. 

You can choose one of these: Unlimited access to Floo Powder or the ability to Apparate at will. 

Awaiting your positive response.

Have an awesome time ahead! Peace!

Much love,
