early morning chill.. rain drenched asphalt.. steel..
the stirrings of a city.. other stirrings as well.

quarry..

of course, the inspiration yet doesn't follow.. but like an old man trying out some viagra for the first time and settling down to check the effects on him with a dose of free porn on the internet, i wait titillated.. maybe i'll be able to paint again. maybe i'll be able to write again. perhaps the words will flow just as the river erodes the island regularly and relentlessly. perhaps not.. why does it feel like i've done this before. a yes and a no. this has been the crux so far. so far being just the last couple of years.. can i read the old books again? will i fall in love with the pages like i did the last time.. just as i'm afraid to go back to an old boyfriend after a breakup, i'm scared to read a book that i love the second time.. what if? what if i don't enjoy it so much..

what if i'm just rehashing.. just like i found out that be 23 if you like jokes, you've probably heard them all.. at 30, you've written it all?? no more new thoughts?? what's wrong??

I have known lot of police officers in my professional and personal capacity which also includes some very very senior officers but I must admit you stand out as an intellectual who is equally strong in profession too. It would be a nice experience to read you now more frequently. God bless.

Start Arresting and assuring/ensuring the deserved punishments to the criminals, I mean start it from the top most and the middle and bottom level crimes would automatically evaporate.

Seriously, you should have been a writer than being an IPS officer. I simply don't understand why people in India donot have the courage to follow their dreams. Ok family pressure maybe. But people rarely trust their instincts. Seriously you should give it a try..Trust me, you have it in you.
