Companion.

I admit I lie but let me tell you now, I’ve decided not to anymore but when I’m down and low, can I pretend to be okay? Will you stop asking questions? Will you just sit with me, in the quiet?

The smile on my face might be fake but right now, it’s as real as it can get. Don’t try to make things better; don’t make it worse, can we just be? There’s no need to be strong, don’t be sorry; leave me alone.

I’d make you coffee and listen to you talk, spend time on the terrace tonight, counting stars. Did you know We are stronger than we think and weaker than we believe we are?

Ain’t it great? You’re happy with your delusions and I’m happy with mine.

      1. Nahii..actually there’s a change.
        Stalkers are apparently sweet and you are not sweet.😂
        Stalkers need to be cautious while speaking and you are a blabbermouth.😝😝

  1. I was here only, but just you couldn’t see me. Actually I was a lil busy with some stuff.
    How are you doing?
    Vaise to aap mujhse bade ho, but do you mind me addressing you by your name or maybe anything that you are used to in Telugu?😄

  2. 🙄 Nothing secretive about it. I heard of the place, saw it, but haven’t tried it. And there’s a hype about it, hence wanted an honest rating, apart from that popularity effect.

  3. Hey hey hey! I can’t comment about your post because it left me speechless! I decided not to read such posts for the time being, but since it was yours, so rules broken😂… Anyways, I had to ask you a question.

            1. Ram ki Bandi. I’ve only been there once and it was pretty regular, I mean, the same dosa you have all over the city. I prefer places with less crowds so I don’t really go there. I can assure you can have better dosas in other places, it’s just that Ram ki bandi is popular and most others aren’t.

            2. And you had said if you catch the virus, you are coming for me🙄.. Now what, afraid of meeting in corona times?😂 (that’s good though, we should take these precautions) anyways, I’m not in hyderabad 😂

            3. I’m going to work everyday. You think I’m scared of catching the virus?? I’m pretty sure I’m gonna get it one day. 😂😂
              What’s so secretive about a breakfast vendor rating? I’m curious.

            1. 😀 yeah. I connected with her on instagram too. Won’t let her complain anymore, anywhere.

              So many comments from Ammu and I can’t even find the reply button 😅
              Yes! Malayalis are everywhere. I don’t think anybody is narcissistic as malayalis when it comes to talking about our state 😅 We are pretty awesome.

              You have such an interesting family, Bharath. Have you ever been to Kerala? Come once all the malayalee bunch are there in Kerala. We will take you around the beautiful places 🙂

            2. That’s great.
              Aathmana is ammu? Nice. She’s been killing me slowly since two days. Even Tamilians are proud of their culture and maybe a little more than you guys.
              I’ve never been to Kerala, I planned to visit Munnar in June but you know how things have changed.
              You guys visit Hyderabad. I’ll show you around.

            3. Yes. Aathmana is Ammu. I really envy the energy she has. I hope she doesn’t miss to like this comment 😀
              Yeah. May be. But I have felt that we are different from the rest of the country somehow.
              Is it? Let us know when you plan again to visit 🙂

            4. 😀😀 I knew you would say this. I am not trying to separate. I didn’t say that we are different in a good way. But yeah. In both good and bad ways. I believe part of my weirdness is from being a malayalee. I felt this only after staying abroad though. And yeah! I want to go back to India. Go Corona Go!

            5. I laugh a lot in real life too. I’m not that gloomy guy who sits in a corner weeping and plotting to blow up the world. I am a blabbermouth and laugh a lot. 😬
              Ah! So you have to book your sea, go through tests, confirm them and then fly?

            6. 😀 You really are an interesting person, you know. Even more interesting writing style. I don’t think I have read anyone’s posts more than once other than yours. It’s pretty awesome. And also because I need to use the dictionary a lot 😅

            7. I’m flattered, ma’am. I don’t use words that need to be looked up in a dictionary, do I? They’re simple and recurrent.
              But really, I’m glad to have people like you around. 🙂

            8. Yeah right. I am not a writer like you. So it’ can be hard at times 😀 When English is not my native language, I say my vocabulary is not great or pretty bad. Not abysmal! 😂 But I am definitely learning a lot too 🙂

  4. “Did you know We are stronger than we think and weaker than we believe we are?” Damn. The use of different words…this might just be my fave sentence. Woah why am I being nice 😂

            1. Doubtful
              And yesh a while ago. It’s also a show, apparently. I picked up a book yesterday called ‘The Power of Your Subconcious Mind’. Didn’t read it yet, but it sounds intriguing

            2. Honestly, 95% of books have tragically horrible villains! I mean, villains are usually individuals who they’re right, or they have someone else to protect at any costs. Authors should make readers fall in love with the villains, not plan their death! Quite frustrating 😂

            3. Exactly! Maybe bc Nour wanted a friend and was terribly insecure about it! (that’s very untrue but just stating an example 😂
