A nerd? Not anymore.

You nerd, why don’t you put on your glasses?
This way they say you are the best.
But see, your neighbor has got better grades.
And they find him better now.

I say, I will travel.
I say, I will write.
I say, I will make memories.
From rain outside my room to snow covered mountains.
Because, these are all what we live for.

Then, what about the grades, dear?
Well, they will eventually fade away.
From minds, from lives.
What stay with us are the feelings associated with moments,
Memories in hearts of yours and mine,
Or in a letter I shall write to you
To be kept carefully inside your favorite book.

Pretence. 

I’m sad, but let’s pretend; 
Let’s pretend to be happier because I need to show off. 

I’m happy, but let’s pretend; 
Let’s pretend to be sad and seek some attention. 

I’m stressed, but let’s pretend; 
Let’s pretend to be chilled out because I need to look cool. 

I’m hurt, but let’s just pretend;
Let’s pretend that this hurt is pretty and poetic. 

I’m excited, but let’s pretend; 
Let’s just pretend to be calm to avoid judgements.

Hey! What is wrong? 

Well, nothing matters. 
Don’t you know that by now? 

Dear Me,

“Life is a mixture of happiness and sadness”,they say. And I have been lying on my bed trying to figure out what life actually is. So, there is this road that leads you to happiness and then there is this another road that leads to sadness. These roads are exactly parallel to each other. And the only thing I am clear about is that roads are way longer and extend far beyond and until they end, you have to keep walking. 

Strange. Isn’t it?

Sincerely, 
Thoughtful Me. 

Different type. 

He is obviously not my type. 
He is the type of his own kind. 

He is not the type who says he loves me every now and then. 
He is the type who whispers it into my ears on cold romantic evenings. 

He is not the type who compliments me in all my whatsapp Dps. 
He is the type who says I look cute without makeup when I sit next to him. 

He is not the type who wants me to behave maturely. 
Because he is the type who sees the psycho in me and still thinks I’m absolutely perfect. 

(Dedicated to my best friend, soul mate)

!!

We keep trying to find home in places that create positivity. We try to find home in people who help us to believe in a better world. 

We leave. We leave places. We leave people to find new destinations only to find out later how lost we are. We keep going back to the roots;to the ruins. Afterall, what is a home if it doesn’t call you back? 

        

10 things only an Assamese girl can relate. 

1. Modern in Outlook yet rooted in tradition. 

An Assamese girl looks drop dead gorgeous in mekhala chadar. Nothing can beat this look. But they can carry of the western outfits equally well. 

2. She is the girl next door. 

Mostly Assamese girls are extrovert. They don’t hesitate in making friends and can mix up easily. 

3. Bihu Dance and songs. 

Bihu is a feeling. Only an Assamese girl can relate to this feeling. They get excited during this festival and participate in dances and songs in the best way possible. 

4. Addressing the unknown as “Dada “

Everytime they need help from an unknown, an Assamese girl addresses the person as “dada” .This makes things simple and convinent. 

5. Common names are “bhonti ” and “maina

Every Assamese girl has been addressed  these two names by others. So these names are familiar to every Assamese girl. 

6.Assamese  Recipes 

Most of the Assamese girls are expert in making assamese recipes . They usually include pithas,jolpan, khorisa,achaar and many other mouth watering recipies. 

7. Jakoi and Dheki 

Though these practices are rarely seen nowadays, yet they haven’t gone extinct. Even though they some practice, these are familiar to them and really close to their heart.

Assam is definitely not the safest place for girls. Most parents always tend to advise them in every little matter which assamese girls are tired of hearing.

Calling deuta is completely a different feeling. Only an Assamese girl knows the friendly feeling they get by addressing their fathers as deuta. Also a feeling of respect is associated with it.

Team. 

Today what I am is all because of what you have done for me. 

What you are is all because of what I have done for you. 

Someday I hope we build our own empire and be proud of ourselves. 

That will be the day we owe each other but today we are in each other’s team.
