    Hmm.....

    Now I don't know what I am, but I guess if this group is about being something that is mostly undefined, then I am definitely in. I guess the best way to describe me is an "individual" and the only way to learn what that is for me is to know me. Basically, I don't focus on much...

    Too Good

    Some would say I am too good to be true, others would claim we are foolish idealists. Perhaps I am just other when it comes to the origin. Perhaps I am one of a kind and all but unable to be defined but I do not consider this to be a failing but rather a success. For in being...

    The Others

    Being At The Right Place.

    Umar mere guzar gai, Par tere aane ka intazar Abhi tak hai. Umar ke sath-sath nigahia Bhi mere kamzor ho gai , Fir Bhi tujhe ek Nazar dekhne ko taras gai . Bas akhri saase liye ja raha ru, Tere aane ke intazar me. Aakhir kab khatam honga ye intazar?
