Guess who’s back!

Thanks for all the exam wishes, people! I’m back, in my favourite city (Delhi) and at my favourite place (Bloggersville). The exams went by reasonably well – no surprises and no complaints. So, I guess I get to maintain my status as the class dimwit.

Anyway, it’s nice to be back and to be able to use the internet for non-academic purposes too.

Just because I haven’t been here for a while does not mean that my mind, which always harbours a maelstrom of thoughts has been quiet. If anything, it is more stirred up than ever.

I’m trying to figure out how it is possible for two people to love the same music, love the same music, love talking to each other, love the same hangout places, love spending time with each other, care enough to keep track of birthdays, exam dates, assignment dates and all sorts of random dates, but not be in love with each other.

In this context, there’s a wonderful quote that I came across a couple of days ago:

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything, and two minus one equals nothing.

P.S. Work on the template is still in progress. I kinda like this one for its simplicity and clarity. Will ensure that it is fixed soon.

Corinne Rodrigues said...

Am glad the exams went well and you're enjoying your (temporary) freedom! Yeah, life is funny - but then what's your definition of 'being in love'? Love to me is a decision...so there's hope :)
Take care and keep hoping.

Corinne

PS: Love this template even better than the original - it's YOU.

Sumit said...

Corinne, you're a gem! :) Yes, there's hope. In fact, lots of it.

As far as the template being me is concerned, that's the first thought that came to my mind. I looked at it, and thought, "Wow, that's so me!!"

Friendship IS the foundation for a relationship... if you have found a soulmate... then there's hope... lots of it!

P.S. All the filmi style stuff... violins playing and bells tolling does not happen... mind you! ;)

Dazediva said...

Glad your exams went well :)

Your new template is uber cool - really like it !

Friendships that are so perfect can never really find love in fear that it will mess things up .. I don't mean to sound cynical but trust me on this one ..

But for you I'll still keep my fingers crossed :)

Sumit said...

@Roshmi...foundation to bahut solid hai, but apun building banaana maangta.. :P

@Divya... I think the template is awesome too! :) Thanks for crossing your fingers for me!
