Its time I answer some questions

I have been mercilessly tagged and awarded in the last one year. Ok. I was awarded only twice and tagged twice but I like to think that it was merciless. Feels good. And its my bloody blog so I will define what merciless means here. I ignored the tags and awards for a long time but

A house in the photographs

Image from - http://wall.alphacoders.com/big.php?i=177417 I am turning into a misanthrope. I don't want to but when I see a five year old raped and tortured, when I hear news of a bottle and candles retrieved from her vagina, when I see a policeman offer Rs 2000 to the raped girl's father to let

We would have not known goosebumps by a child’s touch. We would have beaten up a child and he wouldn't have cried much. We would have kissed without our hearts managing a flutter.
