Ideasmith, age 6

Dear Santa Claus,

Will you bring me a present too? I am not a Christian. But I say prayers in English in school and I know about Jesus Christ and Moses. I read about them in the Bible stories book. When I go home, I pray in Hindi or Tamil or Sanskrit and I also know about Murugan and Shiva and Rama. I read in Amar Chitra Katha.

Please bring me more books. Please make mummy like comics so she will let me read them.

Thank you.
Ideasmith, age 13

Dear God,

Sometimes I think I must be mad. But you will take care of me if I am, won’t you?

I know I’ll never be pretty but I wish at least one person would think I was.

Ideasmith, age 16

Dear Me,

You are my best friend…my only real friend. Thank you for holding on for so long. This too shall pass and you will come out of it stronger. Just keep the faith.

Still I wish someone understood.

Ideasmith, age 21

Dear X,

Won’t you re-consider? Remember our old times? Please remember…because I’ll die if you don’t. I don’t want to think of a life without you.

I never wanted anyone or anything as much as I want us.

Ideasmith, age 24


Once and for all, there will be no more mistakes. Never again, never EVER again will a man hurt you. This is the last of it.

He will pay.

There’s no hurry. Life is long enough for paybacks.

I want justice.

Ideasmith, aged 26

This year I want to:
Eat healthy
Take dancing lessons
Start the novel
Find love

Twenty years is a long enough time. From asking other people to make my dreams comes true to fulfilling my own wishes. There is a difference, though.

It is the difference between faith and confidence.

    Trying to find love would probably be futile; Let it find you!

    Happy Holidays!

    Great post. Think I’ll write a letter to santa, finally. Had this feeling he’d not read non-christian lists. 😉

    I like IdeaSmith v24. She seems strong. But perhaps v26 is more resistant to the man-virus.

    Amazing! Menagerie at 26, agrees with Ideasmith at 26 completely.

    Couldn’t have put it better myself.

    A year has gone by…since this post. Did everything go as you wished to?

    **I am just browsing through your posts**

    @ Brad: Actually nothing went as I wanted but it was a great year nevertheless. What do you know? I think I know what I want but life has grander plans for me!


  23. […] Okay, that wasn’t short but it was fun! It reminded me of another very old post, also full of time travel. […]
