I deleted your number which, by the way, I remember by heart


Anger. It makes you do stupid thing. I was so angry last night, I deleted your number from my phone. But that was not enough. I picked up the phone again and I unfriended you on Facebook. I unfollowed you on Twitter and Instagram. I blocked you on WhatsApp as well. 'I am done!' I told myself.

I picked up the book I was reading and pretended to read. I was on the same page for 5 minutes. Words were blurry but your thoughts were clear. Very clear! I picked my phone, again. Searched for you on Facebook. I hated your profile picture. 'You snob!' I cursed. Then, I read your timeline. I read each post. I read between lines too - how you always posted a smiley while replying to girls - that made me boil with anger. The moment this realization struck, I blocked you on Facebook. I was officially done with you!

I turned sides on the bed. Confused, I recalled some best and worst times we had together. Few made me smile. Few, very few, affirmed that no matter how much I try, I can't masquerade my feelings. I love you - that's a fact. By this time, anger was subsiding and gentle waves of love were making their way. My body felt light. Slowly logic triggered. I told myself to act mature. I told myself if love is an ocean, I want to swim, surf, dive and drown with you. Without you, I may not get angry this often, but I will be very lonely. And I choose anger over loneliness!

P. S. - I deleted your number which, by the way, I remember by heart.

in maruti 800 at 45 kilometers per hour


i tucked my t-shirt
inside levi's jeans
and stood like that model
in cosmopolitan magazine

i had butterflies in my stomach
mouth longed for a kiss
a five-feet-one-inch girl
in shoe-size six

you stopped near the curb
clean-shaved in an off-white shirt
a plain 19-year-old boy
but for me my entire world

i sat by your side
heart raced like the formula-1 car
in maruti 800 at 45 kilometers per hour
i swear i felt like a star

it was our first long drive
up, close and intimate it was
who would've thought of such chemistry
between two students from economics class

the narrow roads leading to barog
the clouds hovering so low
somehow set the body temperature high
with george michael playing on car stereo

you stopped the car
where there was no one
it ended with seething passion
and many buttons undone

we drove back
reached home an hour past sundown
two teenagers with vagabond feelings
in their own hometown

love does that to us
ordinary things gain a brand new meaning
maruti 800, george michael song, levi's jeans
an unending desire to drive uphill every evening

strange how all that evaporated
the day we parted ways
i don't know which car you drive now
i barely recall your face

i've grown out of many things
i don't scratch those scars
but as a girl who loved a boy once

maruti 800 is still my favorite car

*ode to the first middle-class car of india
** i know this is not the image of maruti 800. sorry, couldn't find any. image source - here
