And if you stare at the city,she stares back at you.

I was blundering down the stairs, my vision in a blur, guided by no light but bliss. Wasn’t as resourceful as I tripped down the stairs. Repeatedly. Could have taken the elevator but it’s no fun at least when it’s a journey to climb down and now you have to fight your senses to place the right step. The moon didn’t care to show up that day. He was on a vacation like my sobriety and good sense.

I found myself beside her, by the glare of the streetlights. Every time I hit the streets, it spurred a tale of it’s on. I could look over my shoulder and could see the entire block sleeping with one eye open. All the cars parked on the street. She was silent most of the time, answering me with monologues. She waved at the homeless people sitting on the sidewalk and the hawkers, she was keeping them alive. I could see her being flickering with the beginning and ending of every light source on my way. I could see her scars at various stages of healing.  I walked with her alongside, up a hill, the lights following. At some point probably she must have protested my ramblings but she could see that I was just an idiot who could do no harm and just let me be. We stared at the night sky illuminated by man-made lights.
We saw no cars and decided to jump the signal, not as thrilling in the night, I know but she was laughing by now. Could have even been enjoying the conversation if you could call the spasms of words that I was spurting out periodically. I was enjoying the bout with sleep. I was humming to a tune by ‘the who’. The shapes the trees threw off against light were enchanting. We reached the end of the line or the sidewalk just stopped when the bridge began, either ways, we had to part. She decided that moment to be kinder.

The Morning after was bittersweet. I seemed to have gained nothing and lost something I couldn’t feel the lack thereof. The city, she was through with her part and left me to decipher.

The Destroyer in Ecstacy

Give me the Courage, Destroy this belligerence,
Grant me the focus when I am in Ignorance

Jaguar Concept


  My Concept tribute to the Jaguar and Borrowing visual elements of the 30's and 40's.  front, back and top. And wide and Long. :P

Yama-A Dark Tribute

Words of death slip past my tongue
Reverence of darkness, a stone.
A priest is that which is not yet derogatory.
Believers are seen, blood of my reflection,
Eons lay ahead of measured suffering.
‘Did I just see a glimpse of light; let me bask in its pure glory.’
Was I a part of that I do not wish to belong?
Help me, enlighten me.
Did I see a ray of hope: let me bask in its pure glory.
Do I not recollect, the day I went wrong?
Save me, forgive me.’

Tearing the sky, I see his shadow.
Hope withers as I sense his darkness.
The horns of his beast are stained in blood and overbearing.
Bleeding the earth and our souls dry with his presence.
Existence and chaos overlap one another.

Bones and flesh merge with water and smoke.
Sensing me in him, his wrath I evoke.
(Blessed be those)
Who seek his inspiration
Silence is death, it emanates from his breath

Yama, the lord of Death has always fascinated me as a child. Usually in television he is portrayed as a fat guy with a big mustache riding a buffalo and laughing while lightning strikes in the background. I could never relate to this cheesy image, as when i heard the stories or read, i imagined him to be something more dark and sinister. Probably as a demon who inflicts retribution rather than just taking lives.This is probably an account of a priest who has sinned, sowing seeds of false beliefs onto naive followers and now waits his judgement.

12 Cars that our grandpas would have lusted after as a teen.( If only, i was alive during the 30's and 40's, oh wait, no i'm good)

First of all don’t ask me why 12, why not round it up to 15 or 10 or 20. Why don’t you shut your face?Huh? Because this is how it is. Here we go.

1.      1Jaguar XK120(1949)
Usually they save the best for the last but this car is the first one to pop into my head. The Jaguar XK 120, must have gotten your Granpappy’s mojo going and if he was ever lucky to own one (In India, r u kidding me?), all the Ladki's be screaming. I guess. Anyhoo…

I think this is the Sexiest Car on this entire list. True story. To petrosexuals, this is Marilyn Monroe, naked, eating a strawberry.

Apparently, this car was conceived as an accident as just after WW2 Jag had decided to stop making high performance sports cars. But just before the London motor show of 1948, as quoted by the late Sir William Lyons, “it was done more quickly than anything before or since, and I could compare weeks, almost days with Years.” 
Not only did it look great, it packed in a legendary Six-cylinder, twin-cam engine that established the Jaguar Marque as indisputable champions in many races and records.

2.Bristol 400/401
When an Aircraft Company sets out to make a car, it has to be fantastic; the six-cylinders Bristol’s were just that. Also expensive, apparently. Based on Ze German pre-war BMW’s
after the war, the directors decided to embark into Car manufacturing. And as Borat would put it wowowewa.
With high speed handling that was marvelous even in today's standards, this car was unbelievably Aerodynamic.

Can't wait to get to the next ones already. here is a link to the Wiki article on the Company if you are interested http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bristol_Cars

3. BMW 328
     The Car that set the standards for high performance Sports cars in the pre-war era. This car was developed as an Ideal for Hitler's Autobahn's where the German drivers would be able to maintain a cruising speed of 100 kph for long distances. Its development predecessor the 303 was was the first one with the trademark divided front grille. Ze Germans called it 'Nieren' meaning Kidney's, which the shape was thought to resemble. These Germans are hilarious. Lol.(wtf?)

                     The one above is a  BMW 328 Touring spider version. I want to do unspeakable things to it.

4.Porsche 356 Coupe
 Ze Germans are back. For those(including myself for quite sometime) who thought that Porsche styling wasn't much, in your face. This baby based on the VW Beetle, designed by Ferdinand Porsche and Commissioned by the Fuhrer himself was like this extremely voluptuous cute girl who would wrestle you the ground. What i meant to say is that it could dupe you..choke slam..pinned to the ground..... 
For the lack of a good metaphor, it was a beautiful but pretty rugged car.Fullstop.

                                                              habba habba howwwwwlll

5.Mercedes 540K
    If your Grandfather was an extremely Rich, boring old business man(or an Opium Smuggler or from some royal Family), who thought he was better than everybody else, chances are, he owned this Merc. It was one of the Largest Cars of its time. I hate Mercs actually, I think they are Cold, boring (except for their Hyper and super cars) but this one grabs me by the balls and punches me in the face with its Awesomeness.

                                        Hey Merc, Y U NO make Cars like these no more, huh? Y?

6. Saoutchik Hispano-Suiza H6C

 Hey XK, you think that you are the Hottest one in the room? * and the XK goes Green with Envy* 

                                umm.. yeah, I think this is the Sexiest Car on the list.I mean look at it. 

7.Delage D8 Roadster
            Louis Delage, the man who created knew what he was doing by creating one of the most beautiful low slung exotic cars, with their incredibly fast V8's. And look even their Mascot agrees. Bitch is goin crazy.

                                                Voitures fran├žaises sont impressionnants, non?

8. Bugatti Royale (Type 41)

This is it bro, this is as cool as it gets. This is the Shit. And no one says it better than Wiki.
Its so huge, you can Park a Fucking Mini on its Bonnet. 

The Bugatti Type 41, better known as the Royale, was a large luxury car with a 4.3 m (169.3 in) wheelbase and 6.4 m (21 ft) overall length. It weighed approximately 3175 kg (7000 lb) and used a 12.7 L (12763 cc/778 in³) straight-8 engine. For comparison, against the modern Rolls-Royce Phantom, the Royale is about 20% longer, and more than 25% heavier.
Ettore Bugatti planned to build twenty-five of these cars, and sell them to royalty. But even European royalty was not buying such things during the Great Depression, and Bugatti was able to sell only three of the six made. Today a Bugatti Royale is both one of the largest and rarest cars in the world.
( you heard that, even the ROYALTY had to think twice before buying these cars.)

                  Had to go out of the Page. Its, that awesome.Rajnikant has a thousand of these.True story.

Ettore Bugatti:  "So, I hear the Rolls Royce has a Flying spur? This fucking elephant on my bonnet will trample her."    True story.

9.Delahaye Roadster

           Was that a brush stroke? Holy fuck, no its a car. Who can break these standards?

                                    Figoni, a coach builder makes these exotic bodywork. True story.

10.Duesenberg Model J
          Probably the mustangs and shelby's looked upto Model J when they were in their Kindergarten. Oh yeah. its big, bold and powerful. everything I love about american cars.(also hate sometimes.)

Look at those Exhausts! 
                       You mess with me, you mess with my grandpa. And he drives a Duesenberg.Bitch.

11.Cord 810/812 Phaeton

 I wonder what mind blowing awesome cars this company would be churning out were it alive today.The people who were designing this were hipsters actually. For them, the radiator grill and the lights were becoming too mainstream. They decided, fuck it, we shall have tiny slits and the lights can pop out only when they are needed. Little did they know that the technology of those times wouldn't support it. The result was extremely hot looking cars whose engines used to heat up pretty fast and the lights stopped popping out altogether after a while. Lol. Fancy Driving in the dark now eh? Hipsters.Tsk tsk. Nevertheless i would kill to own one of these, so would my grandpa.

                                                     I look more futuristic than your mom.

12. Cord Phantom Corsair
          Like i Said, i can only wonder what cars these people would be churning out had they been alive today. This car looks more  futuristic than the concepts we have today.
I go bat-shit crazy every time looking at this car. It would put some of the bat-mobiles to shame. 
Apparently the Visibility is bad. well boo fucking hoo. Batman has loads of other gadgets to make up for it.

         It came out in 1938.True story.Unless someone in the future figured out how to use the time machine.

That's for now. And if you disagree with me, don't bitch, send me links of which cars you think should be Included in the list on the comments below.The list can grow. Have a nice day!

Winter in my city

Please don’t take the Cold away from my city,
The burns have not healed yet.
And I have just got my winter clothes.
My teeth chatter on the dark streets at 3 a.m.
As I missed my Midnight Train.
And I will not come back again,
Till you give me my winter back.
Some will not let go off the warmth,
Rum will never taste the same again.
Summer is unyielding, cruel, ever gazing,
And the warmth is stifling.
I want the brain freeze,
I will get on my knees, please.
Winter, wipe these tears off,
And freeze them into nothingness.
Why do people believe its fine to be
Under the sun and shun
This beautiful Darkness?
I protest the end of winter,I will not come back again.

Dear all, this is a brief description of a weird night i had during a winter couple of years back, its kind of eerie and bittersweet and i thought i would share it. The other day i was talking to a couple of friends about how the winter is always portrayed with a negative connotation and how wrong i feel it is.
