The Real Slim Shady

May I have your attention please?
May I have your attention please?
Will the real Slim Shady please stand up?
I repeat, will the real Slim Shady please stand up?

Shady said that last night he got a wake up call from his real inner self and this has led to the reincarnation of the care-a-damn and lost-in-himself real slim shady.
This morning when we exchanged emails as usual, I could sense the metamorphosis. Read the excerpts from his mails below -

When I said I am feeling a bit low for reasons unknown -

Your head is humming and it won't go because you don't know
The shady's calling you to join him
Dear lady you have to make the wind blow
Your stairway lies on the whispering emails

When I said I want to be like him - cool n calm

It may sound absurd...but don't be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
It's not easy to be me

It's all right...you can sleep sound
But all night, my dream hound

I can't stand to fly .. I'm not that naive
Men weren't meant to ride
With clouds between their knees

I'm only a man in a silly red shert
Digging for my luck on this street
Looking for special things inside of me
Yeah, inside me

When I asked him about myself

If there's any way, the answer lies in you

Ur laid on ur zest, coz u know just what to do
If ur soul is lost, its coz u could never find one

When I said I wanted to fly away

Load up your guns

Bring it on my dovey
It's fun to play
Go on a rampage
and pretend casual self
Do it, scream a dirty word aloud
sud i tell ... Fuck it, who cares
With this goddamn attitude ... crack it ... u dare

One more -

I was not the one who jaded you

back on my memory lane, it seems
I never tried to hurt my heart,
But yesterday, i had a tide of ups and down
I was careless i believe, this brings tear to my eyes
But now it feels so good to reunite, within my self
So i just want to say a nu nd friendly hello my love

So all the shady speak made me smile and scribe after a long time :)
I cant help but add lines from the Eminem number again -
Ha ha
Guess there's a Slim Shady in all of us
Fuck it, let's all stand up

History calling

On sunday, I saw the Mysore palace. (The IITK gang went on a fun-filled Mysore expedition.) Come Dussera and the palace is decked up like a queen and the treat is worth watching. The palace facade resembled an old british building. The august murals and the exquisite paintings made the interiors magnificient. But this is not what attracted my attention. The moment I stepped into the palace a strange feeling crept into my mind. It felt quaint to think that not very long ago(some hundred year back) people like you and me lived there. They epitomized a bygone era which is much different from the contemporary age. I felt bizarre to witness the corridors, the throne, the pillars, the dressing room, the mirrors, etc. More so because of the realization that I would be a part of history someday too!
Btw, the trip was too much of fun with antakshiri, dumb charades, elephant rides, giant wheels, tora toras, columbus n all.

Juhi called me up today morining. It was a pleasant surprise - both because she was at home and the call came in the morning. We have grown up together and have spent so much time together that at times I feel dejected for not being by her side all time. The last few years have been very taxing for her and I feel so helpless not being there to help her out. Her hospital schedules are utmost inhumane and even otherwise there have been so many upheavels. She is such a strong person that from her face you can never make out the rumblings beneath or is it that she is waiting for her sister's shoulder to surrender ? My dearie, my love, my sweety, my honey, my twinkle I hope you find your Mr. Perfect soon. I was just looking at your photograph and I cant write anymore....

She will be loved

I am listening to this beautiful number from Maroon in infinite loop today :)

I drove for miles and miles
And wound up at your door
I’ve had you so many times but somehow
I want more

I don’t mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
She will be loved
