Most of my inspiration to write comes while driving back home or driving to somewhere else. Many of my poems are written while thinking about certain happenings while driving. And this particular post is also from the “school of thinking while driving”.
Last few days, i have been struggling to express certain things to certain people. Definitely not out of fear or being shy. For some reason, i am struggling to say it to them. So, out of personal experience, here are some tips on how to express yourself the wrong way.
- Write down everything you want to say and post it somewhere, hoping the person would read it.
- Once you are sure they have read it, keep hoping they would come back to you and ask you about it .
- Write a poem telling everything you want to say to them and then worry that you are unable to say it.
- Write about it, but confuse the reader by making it very ambiguous. ps: get in touch to know more about this
- Keep hoping the person also feels the same way as you do and then “expect” them to tell you first.
- Do not relax. Start worrying about the negative aspects of the issue .
- Try to be someone else. If you are the straightforward kind of person, forget about that and act as if you are one typical nutter .
- Imagine that the poems (or any other thing you have written) are clear enough to express what you feel (to that person, as if they are the only person reading it) and start writing romantic/love poems like mad .
That’s all i can think of right now. If you have more nice ideas, leave them as comments and i will add them to the list.
I have been thinking for the better part of the last 24-48 hours on what to write about. As much as i tried to think, i somehow ended up with nothing to write. The spark was missing and all my thoughts revolved only on very few things. Unfortunately, i cannot write about those few things over here.
I tried to write about things that happens on a daily life, but i guess that would be very boring. Then i thought i’ll write about things that i come across everyday – be it on tv, newspapers or in conversations with other people. Ok, i attempted to write about my recent fav movies. But then lots of ppl had done that, so why write about the same thing again. Finally, i tried to think about something to write on…
But nothing came up, so i decided to write about this “nothing” .
Its far easier to write a poem than make a meaningful blog post .
ps: if you have any ideas, feel free to leave them in the comments. Maybe they will help me in writing the next blog post
In a way, Psychedelic’s tag kind of revived this space. Its been a long time since i wrote something here regularly. Somehow, other things came in the way and i never quite found the time or the need to blog often.
Maybe it was the “dark” theme of the previous design or i was just spending far too much of time on certain other things. Whatever the reason might be, i felt a new look is what is required to kickstart this space once again.
So, here is a “fresh & nice” looking design to get this blog space into action.
Over the next couple of days, i will be organising the categories, posts and everything else. Some of the categories have “outgrown” its needs and time i set everything in order here

I use Interspire Website Publisher to run couple of my websites.
One of the website that runs on this is Awesome Indian Cuisine – Collection of authentic, delicious Indian food recipes.
Being a regular visitor of their forums, i was very much surprised to see they had changed their design to really fit in with their awesome products when i logged in today morning.
But the biggest surprise was when i checked out the Website Publisher homepage. Awesome Cuisine has been used to showcase the software. Check out the screenshot below. If i hadnt visited the website, i would not have even known about it
Thank you Guys – Jordie, Allan and everyone else in Interspire You guys rock!!!
