Seeing Om

No, Om is not some hunky guy I spent my V day with…he is not even some cute guy paying the rickshaw fare…In fact there was no guy in the picture. Hunky or otherwise.

Two guys …my friends actually,
Them: So then ships, whos da lucky one to be your valentine??
Me: umm no 1 as yet. This is at 5 00 in the evening when I was on my way home
Them : What??!!! NO ONE??!!!!?? WAT IS HAPPENING!!!!????
Me: well if u are so darned concerned bout me having a good day y don’t U do the honours…No, no1. Guys r getting dumber I suppose…*sad smile which makes me look like im in acute pain*
Even my best friend didn’t or rather couldn’t, “ask me out” for coffee or sum shit ( no pun) coz he’d got classes till 7 and then was way too tired to even bother…sigh…u cant even rely on ur close friend to make a day special…

Ofcoure we spent da day at purva’s. Rohini (da silent one among us trio) purv n me. We watched Da Amazing Race coz we had missed da finale last evening. That brings me back to seeing Om.

She(purva) has this frame hung in her living room with some optical illusion. Just a printed fabric with some psychedelic stuff. Looks like a non descript thing really. Said if you stare at it, concentrate really hard, you see Om. First its just a big symbol but then as you concentrate harder…you see it surrounded by a ring…further…it seems like the picture is hanging in space. Then when you are at the peak of your focus, you see tiny Oms surrounding the Big OM.

How do I know? Did I see the entire thing?? Heck no. I think I saw the whole universe instead. It was like Yashoda seeing the Brahmand in Krishna’s mouth. I saw a child in da womb, a banana, some flower, a wave of sorts…a nose, eyes….aah well da last two were my reflection in the glass frame…but just no Om!!! 5 minutes. Random images. 7 minutes…purva’s mom and dadi come see what is happening. 10 minutes…I am getting restless and irritated. 12 minutes…the others are having fun.
First jus unfocus, ships…then slowwwwwly sharpen the image into focus. Do you see??!!!??” –purva NNHO I DON’T SEE!!!!!!!
now we are soo used to the pic, it doesn’t even take 10 seconds for us to spot the entire thing”-purva’s maid. AAH WELL THANKZ A TON!!!!!

Finally…I just gave up. “You need concentration ship, concentration!!!”

Which takes me back few more days…”What are you thinking??”- My music teacher. And it is fairly easy to catch me when im dreaming bout ...er..ahem…tuning into the cosmos…coz my voice turns nasal and my fingers skip keys on the harmonium. “Feeling sleepy kya??" Fellow student smirking. “This key…THIS KEY!!!! No no it aint sssssaaaeeeeeee its SSSSSAAAAAAAAHHHHAAAAAAA

Rite now…. I am reading up on Attention Deficit Disorder.

    hey! even I can never see the hidden picture in those stupid things... I wonder why people make those.. I think a picture of Om wud be so great without having to do the focus defocus thingi ;)... and believe me, its got nothing to do with ADD :)...

    You need:
    1)more coffee,
    if that doesn't work
    2) Less Coffee.

    I am reading your post and watching TV. A commercial for Strattera has just come on. It is the First Adult ADD perscription Medication. They just said not to take it if you have Blah Blah Blah and that the side affects include Bleeding from somewhere and problems with urinating. If you do have ADD I recomend living with it.

    I also spent the late great Valentines Day alone writing a V-day Bad Advice Column, I don't know about seeing OM or not, Hope you enjoyed the Amazing Race.

    Me thinks you were probab trying too hard - go back again, throw the lot of them out of the room, take a deep breath and look - I'm sure you'll spot it. If not, go consult someone for that ADD ;-)

    ADD drugs... I tell you... its all that weed.. not good for you..

    I tell ya.. Don't do hash and take ADD drugs at the same time, or you'll end up staring at a bad of Kurkure for 4 hours and saying,"Shhhhh.. doooodd... I'm like.. focusing... shhhh.. shit... mann.. grooovy.." ..
