Four years back, I was alleged to be a manipulator. Well, it's kind of true - as I am good at manipulating, brain washing, giving convincing arguments - to get anyone to my side.
I always have believed that one has to have a bit of all those qualities(?), but should never get caught using them. That is the real success. His actions should look normal/natural.
For the same reason, when I was caught, I wasn't very happy about it. The person who did that was the smartest-girl whom I have ever met in my life, a born manipulator, diplomat. And I could see through her mask. So, we were of the same creed - and that was the relief.
Some time later, I ceased to be one. And started to be a raw man - thinking that the whole world is good.
Now, I am back to the old one. Situations forced me to. And I did good too. Writing this much is beyond the limits, let alone giving more details.
Again, the coincidence is that, when I had to be one again, I was meeting her after a long time. (Was it a meeting of manipulators?)
On a different note: A friend of mine is getting married today. It's a European marriage, a little complicated one too, and there aren't anyone around her. I am her ONLY friend in the city. What shall I get her?
Signing off, Sands.
PS: I am accused of writing too frequent posts, too much of blogging... If it were anyone else, I would have said what I should say. But this person happens to be special!
