Drug Abuse: It's closer than you think!

Ahh..well..all of us are familiar with it..or rather the technical aspect of in what it is it done and all! 

I am going to start with a little short story which is a true one..

A few weeks ago,I was talking to a close friend of mine at 11 p.m. in the night. We were laughing, fooling around and all the things normal people do..then suddenly she asks me to cut the call, as it's the time when she talks to her boyfriend! I cribbed, but nonetheless cut the call. I wanted to talk to her but then decided against it as she would be talking to her guy! Then i just decided to doze off..i switched off the lights and slept! The next day morning, when we met (she's a college mate) , the always happy go lucky Naina (name changed!) seemed a bit pissed. I did not notice initially, but I did afterwards when I saw her snapping at everyone she talked too.. I asked her as to what had happened..she was a bit reluctant but finally gave in and told me what had happened. Last night her guy did not talk to her nicely and was rude AND did not talk to her.. It was a big deal because Kunal (name changed again!) was a very caring and affectionate guy! I calmed her down and said my share's okay's and don't worry's! She was pissed..said I wont call him now, until he does and all! My wretched intuition told me not to allow her to do in not talk to him. (I call my wretched intuition "wretched" because it always gives me an hint when something is wrong!) I made her talk to him..and know what happens?
He had been given a LETHAL overdose of drugs. 
Even if there was 2-3 grams more, he would have been gone. NO MORE in this happy world!

Which is now turning sad!

Why I narrated this was because I want to make it clear that it's not just in movies anymore! It's for real! Drugs flow freely like water in our country! So guys, just be more aware and vigilant! Coz' it ain't cool!

Btw, it was stupid of me to not mention how he was tricked! He was invited (forcefully) to a "party" for lohri , it's a north Indian harvest festival. Everyone was drinking there, but he did not. He kept saying "no's" and "thnank you's". Then somebody handed him a glass of Pepsi, which he of course did not refuse and drank it. He drank half a glass , ONLY half a glass of that Pepsi and fainted! Half a glass had so much drugs! CAN YOU believe?
And as someone has rightly said , Bollywood may not be that "unrealistic" anymore!

A Poem..!

I am not writing a poem.. :P I am just gonna express my thoughts over this four letter word! Hmm.. I like reading poems..understanding it..grasping, absorbing the message, the warmth of it! I appreciate the poet..I do all the normal stuff a nice writer, poet would do, regarding other people's poem! What's the big deal, you ask? The BIG problem, according to me is, I can't write one. YES, I can't. I am too embarrassed to admit this, but I cannot. The Dogs poem on the left hand side, I cannot do THIS much also! :P I don't know why! It's not like I am not well-versed with a particular language, that my vocab is very limited, (okay, I am not P.B. Shelly, but my vocab is decent enough!) but I am just plain scared!
I am scared of writing a poem..everytime I start composing one..I am tongue-tied, the pen in my hand doesn't want to touch the paper, the paper wants to just fly away, my brain wants to go to sleep..everything becomes feasible for me to NOT attempt to compose a poem! :D I don't know if it's my imagination, but this happens to me! I can write a 5000 words essay, if compelled I can write a story book also..I like writing! But, whenever I decide to take this writing and mould them into rhyming, rhythmic verses..I discover I can't write. I become as illiterate as I was when I joined Somerville School on January 7, 1996. I have no idea why! Once, I thought , enough is enough, I am going to beat my stupid silly notion of mine and SHOW my inner scared self that I can write a poem! I went to my mom (she works with Library of Congress, Delhi branch) and told her to get me a book on how to write poems. I waited for the whole day for her to return..with my precious book..she did. At 7 p.m. she returned. I opened it, read some basic tips..and started of with a basic topic..Flowers..I wrote a line.. "A creation of nature.." and FROZE. I couldn't write more. It was like boogeyman had taken over me..I tried so hard.. I tried the next day too! But i couldn't..I told mum to return the book..Then I just gave up!
After a few years, my sister started writing poems..OH MY GOD! Such wonderful ones..she writes so if everything was prepared inside..watching her ignited a ray of hope in me..I tried again..

But, as you have guessed it did not work! :P I haven't tried since then..
I hope to overcome it..someday..and write a poem..about SOMETHING..and overcome my fears..and my disability!

My Ex-Best Friend..

umm hmm..why are you frowning? Never heard of this term? You Can Never..until you experience it and undergo the loss and pain. Well i wont name the person, but by reading it,it will be fairly obvious to the same person that it's about/for him/her. For my few readers..i'l refer to that person as EBF or ex-best friend. I am not writing this to criticize EBF solely, but to vent out my feelings in the true now you are getting to WHY am I not telling HOW EBF became EBF from BFF! Right? I will go through the painful details too..Only because I want my EBF to know that it wasn't a path of orchids ( they are my favourite , not roses) for me contrary to his/her belief. Hmmm..everything was so cool and nice and charmante between us! We were such good friends that people thought we were DATING! I MEAN! For god's sake! Well , it WAS cool..then EBF changed. CHANGED BIG time. For good! He/She hated everything i did , found fault in every MOVEMENT of mine , THOUGHT I was uncool to hangout with. Well, maybe I am, but I was like that before also! Why did you accept me then in the first place? Only to hate me now..?!

Well, I really don't know what you feel about all the shit you have created..You act as if you are affected , repenting , sad, by this incident. Well, I don't see a change in your behaviour or attitude towards me. I am still a piece of shit for you , or so you behave! I always lived in your shadow, you were the darling, not me. You liked the limelight, you got it,NOT ME! I did not complain, because I was happy. Happy that someone understands me, someone cares for me! Or so i thought. I know, I was naive. Maybe I still am. BUT I trust people not to break me into gazillion little pieces, like you did.

And whatever you thought that time , whatever you did that time, whatever you said that time. I forgave you. So that we could be back to being "BFF's". As if it was that easy. But I thought it would be that simple. I did. I actually thought so.

It wasn't as if I was a little angel , and you were the monster. I had my share of bad habits too, which irritated you, but you knew me. You knew my habit for saying things as they are. For NOT behaving practically, for dreaming that things are still okay, when they are not.
YOU KNEW I had pride. YOU knew. You accepted me before. Suddenly , now , you don't.

I have no idea what heinous crime had I committed that you stopped talking to me for a month, in November 2007, without even a reason! I tried so bloody hard to get you back, but you hated me. Suddenly , you are back to normal. You call me, say I am sorry, and I , like an Idiot BELIEVE you. Ha!

What reason do you give me? I was with my guy too much and did not give you time. I was so ashamed of myself! I always thought I was dividing my time equally! I even thought of breaking up. I almost did, but thankfully I did not. THANKFULLY I did not. I say sorry, and make a mental note never to do things to hurt you again. I call up my other friends, who are also close to me, ASK them, how mean was I? Do I not give you time? Am I so selfish? I ask them so that I can repent, apologise and not lose my precious friends.
WHAT does everyone say? I have never ever hurted them by this way. I have always kept my time with them private. I have never let both my time overlap and that I am one of those few people who do this EFFICIENTLY.

I am not self-praising here, only presenting the facts. I swallowed my pride again. I thought maybe I am wrong, maybe everyone else who said the above lines don't need much of my time, and are content with whatever time I spend with them. Maybe EBF needs MORE. OFC, she/he does , he/she was my BFF!

I keep swallowing my pride, over the whole of 2008, or till October maybe, still thinking that we will be back together..share our secret moments..giggle at people with wrong dressing sense..go to each other's place for lunch..dinner..bitch about everyone on this planet..discuss the latest Harry Potter..laugh at each other when we catch one of us with a Face pack on..tease each other..

But as they say, dreams are too good to be true. I realised we will never be back..Whatever I do..You will still hate me..even if I offer my soul to wont be happy. I realised what I was doing for the past year was not needed. You hated me..and you will continue to do so..the reason for this , I guess only you know. But , I still have hope still mean the same to me..
I hope someday..some miracle turns you from an EBF to my BFF again.

Until then, I wait. I wait, as everyday the sun shines and waits for sunset. I wait, as every year the new year's eve waits for the new year. I wait, as the people in the restaurant wait for their dishes to come. I wait, as the guy who has missed his train waiting for the next one. I wait, as the raindrops do for the monsoon to start. I wait, as the moon does for the sun to go down. I wait, as the star does for the right time for it to shine.

I wait.
