Stray Birds*

Sometimes when I'm meditating I pop open an eye and see the person next to me looking at the clock and think,"Man whats the point of meditating if you're going to keep looking at the clock." And then I realize I'm looking at the person looking at the clock.

When I don't feel like figuring out whether to use a comma, period or semi colon, I use an ellipse (...). So now you know my secret...

I've been wearing a payal (anklet with small tinkling bells) on my left ankle since I was twelve. When it gets oxidized I switch to a new shiny one. I don't think people have commented on any part of me more than my payal. It's like a warning that I'm coming.

Can soap get dirty? Where does that other sock go? Does a British accent make you sound smarter?

Americans at the H.I. pronounce my name perfectly (Un-kee-tha) but at school it continues to be butchered.

*Stray Birds is one of my favorite collections from Tagore. It is just a smattering of his thoughts. But they are much more eloquent and meaningful than mine.
