I’m a textbook case of INFP personality type with all its stereotypical anxieties and pessimism. I’m a big loner who avoids parties and gatherings; is quite shy around girls; often get lost in my thoughts; is a miserable dresser, don’t like combing my hair or shaving – can go through months without bath; as you can see I’m terrible in introducing myself; am socially awkward to put it lightly; though I still have some gems for friends. Another weakness is that I can’t live in any sort of routine – and so have no fixed time for meals and going to bed. And so, not very healthy. Also, currently unemployed.

I read a lot, as in a lot, as in ‘buys books before clothes’ type. I often end up missing my meal, too lost in reading. Another reason that I

A Void

(A song by Sidharth Vardhan,first written on June 26, 2021)


They tell me I should laugh
They ask why I don't talk
The normal ones
They don't know it
They can't.
I have a void inside me
That I must fill
with words and noises
with shadows, songs, and 
tasteless distractions.
I feel it inside me
Beating and crawling
All sentience and no 
sensitivenessA Promethean vulture.It gnaws my insidesForever hungry

“When the heart speaks, the mind finds it indecent to object.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Milan Kundera
“Anyone whose goal is 'something higher' must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Milan Kundera
“Making love with a woman and sleeping with a woman are two separate passions, not merely different but opposite. Love does not make itself felt in the desire for copulation (a desire that extends to an infinite number of women) but in the desire for shared sleep (a desire limited to one woman).”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Milan Kundera
“The Greek word for "return" is nostos. Algos means "suffering." So nostalgia is the suffering caused by an unappeased yearning to return.”
Milan Kundera, Ignorance

Milan Kundera
“for there is nothing heavier than compassion. Not even one's own pain weighs so heavy as the pain one feels with someone, for someone, a pain intensified by the imagination and prolonged by a hundred echoes.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
