Things I relate to…

July 12, 2008

§  Vital Signs  à Summers, 1991, 1993, Islamabad, Abbotabad, Geetar 93.

§  Corn à My school’s green-eyed, old and cranky corn-seller (The one buried and roasted in sand) :-S

§  Samosa + Kheer à Mother. Don’t know why, why she got me addicted to kheer (she used to make) in the last months.

§  Blogging à She

§  Bagh-e-Naraan à 13th

§  Summer Vacation à Loads of stories and magazines. Afternoons.

§  Driveway à BMX (Bicycle) I miss cycling too much!

§  The alphabet M à Pain

§  Air conditioned room à Cigarette. My uncle used to smoke a lot and the smell of that tobacco in the chilled room is still alive in my memory.

§  Indian Movies à SRK. The one and only for me. I started watching movies because of him.

§  Lahore à College trip. Friends.

§ London à 13th. And lots of other people who lost significance with time ended up there :-S

§ November, 2006 à Tears

§ The year 2007 à Hope

§ United States à 9/11

§  Morning à Optimism

§ Night à Creative writing

§  80s à Zia. Though I don’t remember anything from that time. Refreshed memory later on by watching documentaries about him.

§ Windows Live Messenger à She

§ Internet à Butt sahib… hehehehehe

    They are too many … like Aitbar … Hum Tum Jiay Ja Rahay Hain … ye Sham … Ajnabi … Har Ek Na Mumkin Mumkin Hua … Aaj Ka Kehna Mano … and many many more … all of them reminds me something soothing ..
