Drunken post...again...

I entered 'diesel'. That's a pub in chennai. I normally dont go to pubs. I hate loud music. I thought
"What shit?"...You can't have a conversation. It is too loud. You can't see the people you are with.
It is too dark. A collegue had come down from mumbai. The last time i went out with that person and
a few others, it was fun. So, was kindf ok to go again though i wud've preferred to go to restaurant that
serves booze, to a pub. Anyways, a few beers down, and a shot down(of something, i dont remember
it's name, was raw alcohol with some icecream kindof thing on top), the music started playing in my
head. I was sitting and dancing at the same time. It was fun. I still prefer it to be quiet...that no noise
disturb me from the peace of a 'high', i could kindof relate a lil more to why ppl go to noisy places
to have a drink.
Am headed to the marina beach...a friend from college is waiting outside work...i hope i am not
apprehended for being a drunken passenger(u can never be sure of the rules)...
And i realize that i have this inexorable pull towards writing some shit whenever i am drunk...

Lonely planet??...

A part of a particular song has been constantly ringing in my head for over a week now..
it is from a soon-to-be-released tamil movie 'Pudhupaettai'... (a Selvaraghavan/Dhanush/
Yuvan Shankar Raja combo)...
"iruttinilae nee nadakkayilae un nizhalum unnai vittu vilagividum,
 nee mattum thaan indha ulaginila unakku thunai ena vilangividum.
 theeyoadu pogum varaiyil,
theeraadhu indha thanimai..."
which translates to
"when you are walking in the dark, even your shadow deserts you,
 you'd realize you are your only companion in this world.
 until you reduce to ashes,
this solitude would not end..."
And at many levels, this made a lot of sense...
And then i went to my sister's picture uploads in flickr...she had an album called 'Takes two
to tango' with a random set of twosomy pictures (like a pair of feet, she and her husband, she
and me, she and her dog etc)...for the album's description, she had a Ray Charles song...
"You can get very old by yourself
Catch a fish or a cold by yourself
Dig a ditch or strike it rich
all by yourself
There are lots of things that
you can do alone
But it takes two to tango
Two to tango
Two to do the dance of love.

It Takes two, I say two
Darling it always takes two
I’m with you

- Ray Charles."
And this made a lot of sense too:)....
