Here, AB, as his sister Alvira calls him (short for Arbaaz Bhai) talks about coping with his newfound single status, about dating and why he doesn’t see himself committing again anytime soon. I am not saying that any of those are completely washed away. Probably less vocal now than I used to be because I sometimes feel that saying things to people is ineffective, like water off a duck’s back. I have realised that you have to feel what you feel and cope and deal with it yourself rather than trying to express it because sometimes nothing comes out of it.
There will always be a sense of things you want to achieve, where you want to be, a sense of disappointment, a few regrets here and there. How you cope with them and how you move on is what your life is about. I am as sensitive as my brothers and other members of my family. Being sensitive means caring for your own feelings as well as those of others. People do not listen, they don’t care, they do their own thing.

In most troubled marriages, one person wants out, while the other wants to fix things.
This truncated understanding of difference is especially ripe for examination in what we are told is an alarmingly polarized America, where questions of difference pervade the roiling debate over free speech on college campuses, the post-election spike in hate crimes, and even how to confront terrorism.
I was reminded of the ill-fitting birds and fish metaphor when reading Sheryll Cashin’s op-ed “How Interracial Love is Saving America” (an adaptation from a forthcoming book), in which she argues that so-called interracial marriages and their rise can mend the country’s racial divide. Isn’t the concept of “race mixing” itself a tool of white supremacy?
I think the class was supposed to take the folksy aphorism to mean that terrestrial concerns can splash cold water on high romance.
” It was a dog-whistle sentiment tuned to a frequency one grudgingly learns to pick up in graduate school environments.
