(As told to Joie Bose)
Why I love being single
It is an anomaly to love yourself is the general notion, but frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn. I don’t give a damn about the world and I love myself immensely. That is why there are so many rumours about me. It is not that I don’t wish that people had nice things to say about me, but I always weigh the price I will have to pay for it. And the price is, pretence. Thus, it is not worth it. I am single, financially independent and emotionally stable. My existence is outrageous.
I have never believed in romantic love. I think it is eyewash. No two people can selflessly be there for each other. It is always a trade. I trade my body or my persona for the care of someone, every time I commit myself to someone. The first time I was in a relationship, it was rather sour.
