I just ate an apple.
Those of you who know me personally — and I wonder if someone who knows me personally comes up here and actually reads this ulta seedha stuff I write (with some very minor exceptions) — will smile at this word. Apple. That’s because I am an apple freak. According to my Abbu ji, apple is the only beneficial foodstuff I eat. Imran says that I can’t compromise on apples (help me with the grammar here), and in Talha’s opinion I have some spiritual attachment with apples. Whatever the reason may be, I know that I like apples. No, I like eating apples. No, no, no, I like apples and I like eating apples. Is there any difference?
Okay. I know I don’t have anything to write, and still I want to write. May be I want to write about those assignments and projects which are ready to haunt me. Or may be I want to write about that sleep which I have had after Asr to Maghrib. Or may be I just want to write that I want to write. May be it’s just that feeling that I am writing and it’s just that sound of the keys being pressed by my finger-tips which I want to feel and which I want to hear. May be it’s my unwillingness to open my books and study them. May be it’s my willigness to open my books and study them. May be it’s the silence which is present in this room and which is being broken by the noise pulses created by the keyboard’s keys. May be it’s the chill which I can feel due to a faulty gas heater. May be it’s the air I’m breathing in. May be it’s the apple I have just eaten. May be it’s my image in the mirror I can glance at. May be it’s the kid I was winking at about an hour ago, and who was winking back at me. May be it’s the phone bell which just put its share in breaking the silence of this room. May be it’s the TV switched on by my sister in the adjacent room. May be it’s the time which is ticking away. May be it’s the thought of those lectures I’ll have to attend tomorrow.
Or may be it’s only the fact that I have gone completely nuts right now.
