MY NAME IS X (?)

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet."
I strongly disagree.
“Anewsha”, "Anusuya”,"Aneysaa”, "Amrisha”(!!!!!) and “Amisha”(:P) are the names which I had to deal with. Its so damn disgusting. My parents took so much pain to name me and the greatest fools on earth couldn’t even roll their tongues to it. Damn irritating ! Once a teacher remarked-“Bahut hi thedha naam he aapka”(“Your name is too twisted”). To which I involuntarily replied, "Tedha he par mera he”(No, Kurkure hadn’t banked on this line then). Usually it’s the oldies who can’t pronounce my name.(No offence meant to the elders). I wish people call my name as it is actually. Else what is the purpose of having such a nice name ?
*************
Year : 2007
Place : Some coaching centre, Bhubaneswar
Time : 2 PM
Batches of students were leaving the centre after a test. The elevator was full. The stairs were overcrowded. Miss X took the stairs. The test wasn’t excellent, she was hungry and the tiny finger on her feet was swollen (She had bumped against a table earlier that morning). It so happened that someone stepped on her tiny, injured finger. Our Miss X couldn’t take it anymore. Vegeanance ! She grabbed an arm and pinched it ruthlessly. She didn’t know if she had punished her tormentor but nevertheless, the revenge was done. At home, her folks( read: parents) were assured that Miss X had the power to stand against any kind of injustice/violence inflicted on her.
Now its upto you, my readers to guess who Miss X is……..

I really hate it when people spell my name wrongly or tell me it is too difficult to pronounce. It is really annoying. I try as much as possible to correct them but it pisses me off sometimes.

WAITING FOR YOU

Concealed by dark clouds
You keep shining.
Bright streaks of light
Dazzle me.
Enchant me.
And keep me waiting..
Waiting for you.

Amidst Soul-lessness

There is smoke somewhere. 
I cannot seem to figure out where. 
The lights are here, the music is here.
Has it been home here ?
Perhaps. Maybe when it did not rain.
Or maybe when it rained and it did not matter.
Maybe when I walked alone, smiling to myself. 
Or maybe when I realized I was okay.
Had it been always like this ?

Not really. 
Things clicked, took effort and blood. 
Did I do it ? Or the beasts did ? Maybe we both together,
Played this game. 
Amidst soulful solitude, it was love. 
Maybe appreciation.
Another journey, another dry spell. 
Will it ever be home again ?

77 FICTION : TEAR FILLED EYES

The eyes searched someone. The one she could run to at times of need. In someone’s lap, she would pour out all her troubles.
Nobody came.  She grew up, rimmed her eyes with kohl. But they could never hide her tears.
No one came when her soul was ripped apart. No one heard her cries. No one mourned her loss.
After  a while, she thought that tears were a part of the eyes.
