So, in other words, u all can gift me stuff n make a responsible citizen a very very happy citizen :D (howzaat?)
So dis is d 1st new yr season for dis blog n its all excited…he he…I sound like d mtv tickr…treatin d blog as an individual ;)
N wid new yr comes d resolutions…now makin resolutions is one thing but stickin onto it is a totally diff issue…I dunno wat resolutions I’m gonna make…anyways I hv neva stuck onto any dat I hv made, so it doesn’t make much of a difference…well dis time one thing dat does come to my mind is makin it 2 d office on time…m tired of bein late…n even more tired of d jokes on me 4 neva bein on time :(
A frnd had told me dat December is her most fav month…maybe coz xmas is around…n my guess is coz her bday is also in d same month…but wateva it is it makes her feel on top of d world
N talking of bein on top of d world…I just made a list of 5 moments wen I hv felt on top of d world…n all of dem r true (of course anything I say is true…I m after all a honest n responsible citizen) :D
1. Visitin home wen u r stayin away due to work/study…nothing like touchin base n bein in d company of ur luved ones…where u don’t hv 2 act n appear intrstd in completely borin stuff…home is one place whr ur true nature comes 2 d fore…d real person in u is out only in d confines of ur nest
2. Holdin a 2-day old baby…ok holdin a 1-day or a 3-day old baby wud also be fantastic…I recently held a 2-day old sweety in my hand n trust me it was heaven :D
3. Getting an unexpected gift…n a really cool one at dat (I got an ipod classic…god bless my big bro) :D
4. Getting a call frm a old frnd wen u really wanna speak 2 someone
5. Bein introduced by someone as “meet (name), my best frnd” – priceless
Well I’m done 4 d yr…n d blog n me wanna wish all d readers a very happy xmas n a wonderful new yr ahead…hv a blast on 31st…I’ll be leavin town tmrw nite…dats why d advance wishes
PS: if u wish u can lemme know 5 moments wen u felt on top of d world…who knows I mite hv just started a tag ;)

Ok here’s an announcement: I’M ALIVE…wasn’t bloggin 4 no particular reason…d only excuse I can come up wid is: “I was lazy”…hope all u guys missed me ;) well I aint waitin 4 d replies 2 dat one ;)
Was thinking wat do I write abt…m kinda outta touch…so d creative brain cells aren’t particulary up n jumpin…so just recountin an incident dat hapnd recently…n btw isn’t dis blog supposed 2 contain d snippets of my intrstng life? So here it goes…
It was the week before the open book exams…I had my bag stuffed wid printouts n printouts n more printouts n den (no not some more printouts) 3 textbooks…so it was quite a heavy bag (logical conclusion rite?)
I hv dis habit of hittin d bed weneva I decide 2 study at my place, so I decided 2 sit back in office n inject some knowledge into my head n must say I failed miserably…I just ended up wastin time here wen I cud easily hv curled up in my bed by dat time if I had gone home (m I makin sense?)
At 8.30, I thot enuf was enuf n got up n took dis huge load wid me…as I swiped out n walked towards d gate, a guy came up to me…he said that he works in the electronic city office of the same company I work 4 n he had lost his atm card…I thot he was gonna ask 4 cash…but as usual I was wrong :)
He said he wanted 2 access d net 2 check if any transactions hv occurred in his a/c since he lost his card…I sighed n thot, “ok atleast its not gonna cost me.”
He was a middle aged guy (MAG)…around 40…luked d gentlemanly kind n most importantly he had d company tag on him (so not a terrorist)…I led him back 2 my cubicle…unlocked my pc n he took over…he logged into d site, took a printout of his a/c transactions n was done in 10-15 mins…we walked back exchanging private n confidential info on how cold d weather is ;)
MAG asked me whr I stay…n bingo he was goin on d same route…n said he’ll give me a drop…he had a 4-wheeler…I cudnt think of any reason 2 refuse…n so we got into his car n he started drivin on d wrong side of d road…both of us checkin out d opp side 2 see if dere is any opening 2 cross onto d other side.
N suddenly we heard a loud thud n d entire car shook…now I hv neva been in a car accident before…so it took a moment 4 me 2 realize wat had hapnd…a cab was parked in front of a restaurant n it had suddenly moved onto d road n hit d back part of our car.
So out we came, n an abuse hurlin session began…d other driver was givin it full-on 2 MAG in Kannada…n MAG maintained a dignified silence 4 sometime…but den he thot he had had enuf n showed d cabbie dat he was anything but dignified…he started back his verbal mouthlash in Hindi…it was fun…n d best part was I learnt some new gaalis (or were dey so old dat ppl hv stopped usin dem) ;)
Now dis cabbie was getting all d local support…d rick-wallahs n all those around joined him n started pointing out how MAG was d one 2 be blamed…n d cabbie was growin more confident n was a waggin his finger a lil too close 2 MAG’s face…I thot it was just a matter of time before a fight wud start…I mean d physical kind
Dis feelin kinda got me thinking…if a fight does start, shud I join? If it was a frnd, I wudnt hv thot twice…but I hardly knw dis guy…n d odds of getting beaten up were a million 2 one…d cabbie had got all d on-lookers on his side…d MAG was alone (ahem…he was probably bankin on me…but I wasn’t sure if I was really willin 2 prove him rite)
N den some wise guy suggested dat d cops be called…my mind started racin…wat if d cops come n tow d car away? My bag wid all d printouts n d texts were in dat…n he had locked d door…damn why do I hv 2 get involved here? I went n stood next 2 MAG
Me: why cant we just leave?
MAG: lets see wat he wants 2 do?
Me: well d only thing he seems intrstd 2 do is abuse u…n luks like he’s doin a gud job of it
MAG: (cold stare)
MAG: let him call d cops if he wants…I hv been thru dis before…no big deal
Me: (thinking) yeah rite…now dat makes me feel so much more better
Suddenly, d cabbie turned n got into his cab n left…still continuing his noble deed of cursin MAG…now d crowd started dispersin n I let out a sigh of relief…MAG started checkin d car 4 scratches…he remarked: “dere is a dent here na?”
Me: yeah yeah…now can we move? (thinking: or atleast unlock d door so I can get my bag)
MAG: pretty nasty one…think I shud claim insurance?
I went around 2 see wat he’s pointing at n I din see anything…I crouched n had a closer look…still nothing
Me: yup…claim it…its very bad (thinking: plz unlock d god damn door)
Finally we got into d car n left…we crossed onto d other side n MAG started his pravachan on how it was all d cabbie’s fault…I just nodded waitin 4 wat seemed like an eternity 2 reach my place n silently regrettin d moment I actually thot of helping dis guy.
Moral of d story: kill d idiot who said u shud do a gud deed every day!!!

4 all u 1st timers, a tag is a pre-set list of questions dat u answer. At the end of it u can ask someone else 2 attempt 2 answer it n hence tag dat person
So here goes my rapid-fire…
1. Pick out a scar you have, and explain how you got it.
A. On my left shin. I got it when shabbir tapori shot me at point-blank range n I dived 2 avoid it. Prblm was I raised my feet in d process of d dive n d bullet was pretty slow. So it hit my shin. Sounds ok? :P
A. Paint :D
A. Black wid a splash of orange here n dere. It’s a w810i. N u better tell me dat its cool :)
A. Any. Trust me. Any as long as I m in a mood. I can very easily hv “khwaab dekhe jhoote moothe” n linkin park playin back-2-back on my playlist ;)
A. I blink n d day shud be Friday. I blink again n d time shud be 6 :) possible?
A. The Indian law calls it a crime n I m as much against d Indian law as I m against aliens takin over d planet. So dat answers it rite?
4 all those who din get wat I was tryin 2 say…d answer in pretty simple terms is: “YES. I believe every individual has a right 2 live life his/her own way. N marry d person of his/her own choice”
A. Yeah. Still together. Still in luv :)
A. My cpu hummin ;)
A. Anyone who wud make me cry shud be spcl rite? Even dis person is :)
A. I don’t hv a fav. I try not 2 stick onto d same fragrance 4 long
A. Black/brown/red hair
A. Yeah. As much as I like terrorists.
A. He he. Maybe :D (sheepish grin)
A. Lots n lots of cheese loaded wid as much poultry as d poor crust can take n den some more cheese
A. A maharaja mac wid French fries n coke. N add a hot chocolate fudge 2 d order (I’m on a diet u see) :D
A. Who was d last person I met?
A. Yeah, of course. I’m a popular guy :D :D :D
N just as I'm abt 2 post dis, I got a mail sayin dat Abhinav Bindra won d yellow metal at Beijing...man dats wat I call d perfect news 2 start d week wid...an olympic individual gold 4 India...dunno if dis has ever hapnd before...yippie...3 cheers 2 dat :D :D :D

Over d years I hv had numerous pals who hv been in a relationship…some have been freakin serious abt it even though dey were just in the 11th grade while some even on d cusp of 30 weren’t sure of wat dey were doin…but 1 thing’s been common throughout: all d guys have common complaints abt d relationship…so 4 all u wannabe romeos, here’s a list of rules u better be prepared 4 if u intend 2 fall in d pit of luv ;)
Note: In dis list ‘u’ refers 2 d guys
1. U shudn’t disturb her (by callin on d phone) wen she’s out wid her frenz. But no such rules apply wen u r havin a nice time wid ur buddies.
2. Wen she says she din hear ur call or notice ur msg, its genuine. If u din notice her’s, den god save u.
3. I’m sure all u couples wud spend long nites on d phone. So dis rule is 4 all u poor souls: Wen she’s sleepy at nite, its fine. Wen u r sleepy, u r ignorin her.
4. U wud be constantly told not 2 hide things frm her. BEWARE – dis is a trap. D moment u think yeah u shud be honest n blurt out ur previous crush’s name, u r dead. N if dat crush still happens 2 be in ur vicinity, den u r not only dead, u hv lost all chances of nirvana!
5. Don’t ask more dan 2 back-2-back questions abt her frnd…u may suddenly get a high-pitched “why don’t u ask her only?” on ur face.
6. “Is dere anything abt me dat u don’t like?” She can ask dis in d most passionate of moments. N u bein completely smitten wudn't even be aware of wats comin out of ur lips. Yeah I know u were honest…but den u were also a fool!
7. If she asks u 2 sing 4 her over phone, don’t argue, just do it n get over wid it. N never ask her 2 return d favor. Ever heard of anyone singin over d phone?!?!?!
8. Don’t ever end a msg or a call without d mandatory “luv u”…dis, my frnd, is an unforgivable sin.
9. U shall never be in a bad mood. No matter wat, u shud always be happy n cheerful n caring n understanding even if ur boss was threatening 2 fire u if u don’t work for 14hrs a day or u had a bad fight wid d motorist who rammed into u wen u were crossin d road or even if a near one is on d deathbed, it just doesn’t matter. However if her neighbor’s cousin’s nephew’s classmate’s step-mom’s best-friend’s Pomeranian has a flu, u shud of course be mourning.
10. N finally d most imp rule of all…weneva u hv a fight wid her, just rmbr 1 thing: “u r always wrong”. D sooner u admit it, d better 4 u.
Hope at least 1 innocent guy wud benefit frm dis…d rest can click on d ‘comments’ link n type something out ;)
N talking abt luv,
Q. Do u believe in luv @ 1st sight?
A. Yeah, of course. It happens 2 me all d time ;)
PS: Watched “Jaane tu ya jaane na” over d weekend…damn cool movie…don’t miss it :)

So off we went 2 dis place…it turned out 2 be an office of a well-known holiday packages n clubbin enterprise…we got dere n met bunty…now bunty bein babli’s cousin was a shrewd guy alright…he thot up dat d more d no. of couples he tags along d more his chances of baggin dat gift…so he brought along 2 gals n babli had called another one of her guy friend (hari prasad chaurasia, HPC in short) also…dat made d 6 of us n in bunty’s words “3 couples”
We were d last 2 reach d place…d other 4 were already dere…we went in n bunty talked 2 d receptionist dere n asked her wat next…n den fell d bomb…d receptionist asked whr is d “married couple” n bunty almost had a heart-attack !!! He confirmed if wat he heard was rite…n yeah it was (but he still din hv d heart-attack)
Now none of us had heard all of dis…we were just waitin 4 bunty 2 come back n tell us wat d whole damn thing is abt…dats wen HPC decided dat we hv waited enough.
He decided 2 take matters in his own hands n went n asked bunty “Wassup bro? Anything wrong?”
A confused lukin bunty luked up 2 his savior n replied in a feeble voice, “They need a married couple!!! N both of us aren’t married na!!!”
The receptionist heard dis n said dat rules r rules n she cant help it…these 2 guys decided dat dey need 2 speak 2 her mngr n find out if dere was an alternative…dey called him up n he confirmed wat dey had just heard frm d lady on d other side of d table (note: d heart-attack still eludes bunty)
Now d 2 dejected guys came back 2 us wid their heads almost touchin d grounds…dey told us wat d matter was…n we…er…sympathized wid dem…babli started her lecture on how bunty shud hv found out wat d funda was before callin in so many ppl…n we collectively nodded our heads in silent agreement
Den suddenly HPC had dis gleam in his eyes n he luked up 2 yours truly…n 4 d 1st time in my life I realized wat on earth is telepathy…I said NO even before he opened his mouth…d others still din get wat exactly is hapng…n HPC proceeded 2 enlighten dem:
“D lady knows dat I aint married…she knows dat bunty aint married…but she has no clue abt dis guy’s (my) marital status…he can go in wid babli as a twosome n d gift will find its way into our hands!!!”
(4 some strange reason it reminded me of dis dialog frm don: “Sonia…tum jaanti ho yeh revolver khaali hai, mein jaanta hun ki yeh revolver khaali hai…magar police nahin jaanti ki yeh revolver khaali hai”)
“NO!!! I can’t do dis!”, I felt like I was talking 2 myself…no one was even listenin…dey all agreed dat dis is d brainstorm of d century n we r just lucky 2 be part of dis great conspiracy
Babli, eventhough a bit skeptical at 1st, agreed 2 go wid d flow n of course my protests were fallin on deaf ears…so dere we were d “married couple” of d day… bunty introduced us 2 d receptionist as THE couple…n d lady gave a wry smile indicating pretty well dat she knew dis was a stop-gap arrangement…but she wasn’t worried (why wud she be? D company was givin d prize…it wasn’t frm her pocket)
She asked my name n I decided I m gonna keep it as discreet as possible…I just said my 1st name n forged a signature by just writin down my name…she said we will hv 2 sit thru a presentation 4 an hr n a half…so dat was d deal…me n babli r a couple for 1.5 hrs n we had decided amongst d 2 of us dat we r gonna walk away wid d gift whether bunty likes it or not
We were led upstairs n den ushered into a big hall whr many couples whr sittin wid a company rep…d six of us were seated wid special emphasis on d “couple” occupyin d center seats…a rep joined us n he started a random interview…he asked twice if we guys r married n I replied wid a straight face dat we r…I cud see possible smirks on d others’ faces waitin 2 explode but I was stuck wid my dead-pan luk (never one 2 let go easily :) )
He asked stuff like whr we stay n everyone told him n den he turned 2 babli n she replied wid a “we hv made our home in…” n it suddenly dawned on me dat we were supposed 2 hv d same nest (must say I almost blew it up dere…but den babli was dere 2 save d day)
Den we filled up a form…dere was 1 column dat asked d last 3 places dat we visited n stuff…n we put in kerala (my suggestion), karwar n mysore (her suggestion)…wen we were asked abt it I spoke at length abt how kerala was (comes naturally 2 me ;) )
Dis was followed by a lady who took over d mantle of quizzing us…she started off wid a “ha boliye janaab”…a hyderabadi n a proud one at dat…she refused 2 talk in any language other dan hindi…was a pretty funny lady n talked a lot n told us abt dis holiday scheme dat dey were promoting n dats wat dey wanted d couples 4 (at last it made sense)
She even went on 2 say dat I n babli don’t exactly luk married…I pushed my chair closer 2 babli n asked “now?” Negative…so I told babli “smile” n I also smiled…now? Still negative…phew dis is beyond me.
N if we thot dis was d end…well we had some surprise left…a 3rd person came in…he was d mngr…he told us d tariff…it was a cool 1.5 lakhs…n it was a 1-day offer…so we had 2 commit den n dere…so finally we got an opening…we did some “couple discussion”…n came 2 d conclusion dat we need some more time 2 think like say around a week
Dem: “Not possible”
Us: “Bad luck den”
D packed gift was given 2 us n we filled up some feedback form n dashed out of d place…all of us huddled around as d gift was bein unwrapped…n dere came out d mega-prize 4 which all dis effort had gone in:
A set of crockery – kitchen bowls 2 be exact…n a 1-day pass 2 one of those clubs
Babli pocketed d pass n 2 bowls…bunty? Well he finally had his long-pending heart-attack!!!

Yes u read it rite…I HV BEEN BUSY !!! Yup d unimaginable has hapnd…n I swear I dont hv anything 2 do wid it…its not like I hv been neck-deep in work or anythin…but den movin on frm d bench 2 a regular prjct is not all dat easy…its been a long while since I hv checked my own blog 4 comments...but obviously it din make a bit of a difference as dere is not even a single one since d last time I checked :(
So I was sayin dat movin on was a bit tough…hv been tryin 2 get 2 my seat at 9 but it just doesn’t happen…its gotta be 9.45 at least till I make it…maybe d laziness dat had crept in (or was it always dere? ;) ) durin d “bench” days hasnt deserted me…but its not like I aint tryin…4 instance, I just snooze my alarm thrice in d mrng these days compared 2 my earlier 5 times (4 all those who r intrstd…I just switch it off after dat !!!)
Hv joined a new team n d ppl r pretty cool…we hv had 3 team lunches since I hv joined n all 3 were at some really hapng places…so dey get all d points without even tryin…who’s worried abt work if such gud things flow along rite? Yeah rite :)
Work is ok…or so I think…hvnt discovered anything out-of-d-world till now…but den who knows…dis week I just might ;) we r finally getting proper weekends coz d exams r over n dere r no classes dis month…wish d hols were 4 two months dan just one…sigh
Had left my collection of songs in my old pc n hv been stranded here...n if it wasn’t 4 some generous frenz who sent me some tracks I wud hv committed suicide…din know music was so imp 2 me…hmmm I just keep surprising myself ;)
It was a frenz bday recently n d treat has been long since pendin…n she gave a treat yest…n man did I hog like crazy…actually m not much of a foodie (honest)…just ate so dat she doesn’t feel bad…m a pretty nice guy u see :D (honest again…n btw dats my angelic smile…its pretty famous around here…but still thot dere mite be some ignorant readers ;) )
“Indiana Jones” is out n I dunno why ppl r so dyin 2 see it…I wud rather watch Sarkar Raj…n read dis interview somewhere of AB Jr. the interviewer asked him why he is lukin so angry in d promos n junior said he’s not angry he’s just bein intense…lol (I really found dat funny)
Saw a movie “50 First Dates” on tv…try catchin it d next time…is really a cute flick…n Drew Barrymore luks more cute dan ever…man she’s one gal who can put on any amount of flab n still luk chweet :D (PS: I luv her)
Dats all 4 now folks…will move on I guess…my work awaits me (man never thot I wud say these words)
Saturday, May 10, 2008
So wats been happenin in my mind blowingly-interestin life??? Lots of stuff…really…had gone home n hv put on oodles of weight…much 2 d happiness of dearest mommy :D (nothing better dan hoggin away like a pig n lukin up 2 ur mom showin her pearlies smiling away 2 eternity…ah heaven)
N yeah I had 2 come back…just wen I thot life cudnt get better…why do we hv so less holidays??? :( NOT FAIR!!!
Today wud probably be my last day in d free pool…so dat invariably means dat I may hv 2 start workin…man even d thot is so scary…phew…lets hope it’s a passin phase n I get back on d bench soon (amen) :D
I made it clear 2 a friend of mine who suggested a project wid “good scope” dat m lukin 4 a “project” n not 4 “work” (don’t ppl get d difference!!!)
Another thing happenin in my life wud be dat I cleared d CodeGym assessment…I know most of u wudnt be knowin wat it is…so here it goes…its d most imp thing in d telecom domain in dis company (I can say anything I want…now dat I hv cleared d freakin exam)…many hv been askin me how I managed 2 clear dis out-worldly test…among d 10-12 from my team who were brave enough 2 take dis exam…only 2 emerged smiling…n 4 all u nutwits out dere…one of dem was me :)
So hv been distributin my gyaan 2 all n sundry who dream of clearin dis test in their lifetime…I hv told dem how I prepared day in and day out…how imp it is 2 hv a complete command over any one programming language of their choice (I took ‘C’)…n how imp it is 2 clear d assessment comprehensively…d pass percentage is 60…n surprisingly ppl hv been listenin (no smirks ok)
N just 4 d record I scored 60 ;)
Wat else? I m in luv…yeah I know all u ppl wud be surprised…but cudnt help it…it all happened so quickly dat I din get time 2 tell u guys abt it…so thot its best 2 write abt it here…wat better way 2 proclaim ur luv 2 d world :)
It happened wen I was at home…n just in case u were wonderin who got so lucky…I m in luv wid mangoes :) man dere r some really gud ones at home n I m so far frm dem now :(
Now I know how it feels 2 be away frm ur beloved…tanhayeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ( u got competition sonu!!!)
“25 minutes” has started repeatin itself 4 d 3rd time…m too lazy 2 change d track n 2 top it d song is really chweet…so m just leanin back n lendin it my ears…all over again…SING ALONG :)

I will lay me down and bleed a while
And then rise up to fight again"
Why hv I put dis quote up here? Who m I gonna fight? Yeah even I hv an enemy (gasps)!!!
The villain in dis story (no not my mngr dumbo) is someone who has proved twice in a row dat his sole purpose in life is 2 be a thorn…n he bloody well is a pain whr it matters most…I unfortunately know him…n considered him a frnd (my mistake).
He always detested my popularity (ok…I m d hero here) n made ingenious plans 2 strike me out…well must say he came quite close.
Hmmm…I guess I shud start wid a flashback…so here it goes…we do a time travel back 2 d yr 2003…I hv no clue which month…I guess colleges start in June…so June it is.
I met “him” (ok don’t wanna spill his name out n give him a chance 2 sue me 4 libel) 4 d 1st time ever on d very 1st day of coll, which btw was St. Aloysius, M’lore…n no my life din change its course immeadiately if dats wat u guys expected :P
So dis dude was an avg student in class…maintained pretty decent grades (quite an achievement 4 his pathetically low IQ), n wrote stupid poetry n drew even “stupider” (dunno if dere is such a word) cartoons or caricatures or wateva it was dat marked d margins of all his notes…he was a mess wid spellings n an even worse singer…yeah he used 2 hum songs n I used 2 sit somewhere around n beat my head on d bench n even dat wud seem music 2 dis jerk n he wud continue singin.
So off we went frm 1st to 2nd and den to d final yr…pretty breezy ride…some of d best days of my life (yeah eventhough dis clown was very much around) and we were pretty gud frenz or so I thot.
We finished our courses n me bein dis incredibly intelligent guy (heck I told u I m d hero) got placed in a well-reputed IT firm…n he went on 2 do his MCA (no…not in our coll…d management realized its mistake of takin him 4 d bachelors…so dey din let him anywhere close d moment he passed out).
I came 2 B’lore and was leadin a pretty happy life n dere he was in his coll scheming an evil plan 2 bring my gud name 2 dust 2 quench the neva-endin thirst of his sadistic mind…we used 2 talk occasionally…wen both of us were bored n had no other job n all d flies at our places were dead n part of folklore.
Fast frwd 2 present tense…d exact date wud be d 6th of April, 2008. On dat fateful day, he got his chance…he saw his long-awaited dream bein fulfilled…he saw my waterloo (plz don’t break d word into smaller words n derive meanings)
He got 2 know dat I hv created a blog…n dere he was…at his menacing best…writin out d worst comment n takin out all his pent-up frustration on dat poor lil blog of mine. But, alas, his effort went in waste. Ppl had already read d blog n formed opinions n dey din fall prey 2 his onslaught.
But not one 2 give up so easily (a trait dat all aloysians share), he struck back on my 2nd post…n dis time he hit d bull’s eye…d moment he came 2 know dat I hv updated my blog, he jumped on n was d 1st one 2 comment…n he literally shred my blog into pieces…he dissected each n every line I wrote…n almost wrote a comment dat was bigger dan my post!!!
Everyone followed suit…just as dat shrewd brain of his had anticipated…he had achieved wat he set out 2 do…he had triumphed…he had lived his dream…he won d battle…he rejoiced…he celebrated …his attempt at drivin me away frm blogosphere almost materialized…n I thot I wud neva be able 2 come up wid something in reply…but it wasn’t “Game Over” yet…dere was still a lot 2 play 4.
N den I thot (yeah I did)…a lot (now shut up will u? I thot n dats it)…n I decided dat d best thing I can do is tell d world (ok maybe not d entire world but all those who r listenin) d truth behind those savage attacks.
N today I hv done dat…I hv exposed him (not literally…thank heavens)…n I stand here…amidst d ruins of wat was once a blog of gud reputation…waitin 4 his next move. N dis time I intend 2 give it back…real hard.
Go 4 it dude…throw ur best at me…I m ready…as I said at the beginning…m gonna “rise up to fight again”
Note: All the incidents mentioned here r true 2 d best of my knowledge n any resemblance 2 any characters livin or dead is purely INTENTIONAL :P
Sunday, April 13, 2008
Well, wat next? This is something a vast majority of my frenz r askin me…wats my next post gonna be abt? N if its not “wat next?” its “wen?”!!! Wen do I intend 2 post again? I neva thot abt it till one of my frenz popped up d question over lunch…till den I was thinking dat I hv written something n it ends dere 4 me…now everyone has 2 tell me wat dey think abt it…so I left it at dat n waited…4 comments n praises n hopefully no brickbats ;)
Well must say m overwhelmed…i got responses of all kinds…many commented on d blog itself…many din comment…I got some mails sayin how much dey liked my post n some told me in person…many asked me for d songs I mentioned dere…I guess I hv given James Blunt more publicity dan he cud hv ever imagined…wonder if I’ll get a percentage of d profit he makes thru his records (I deserve it 4 sure) ;)
N I guess d reason why so many ppl checked my blog was d way I “promoted” it…I told abt it 2 all ppl I know…asked everyone 2 hv a luk n comment…I shamelessly asked ppl I randomly met 2 go thru it n lemme know how it was…I maybe shouted louder abt my blog dan wat SRK did 4 OSO…now I know wat u went thru bro ;)
N den…back 2 square one: “wat next?”/ “wen?”
N I hv got enough suggestions on dat front:
1. Write a novel – I’m more dan happy 2 do it…but den a few negligible things r missin – name of d novel, characters (no. & names) and a plot…apart from dat, everthin else is in place :)
2. My frnd suggested dat I chronicle his flirty life…of how he’s tryin 2 woo a certain gal…well dude, I don’t intend 2 do dat…just coz I luv d way I m (hmmm…more or less)…n d last thing I want is a broken limb and a few missin teeth ;)
3. Den dere were innumerable other suggestions which I guess wud fall under d “censored” category…so I’ll let it pass by ;)
So d bottomline is: I cudnt think of any topic 2 write abt…now dis was something I wasn’t prepared 4…maybe dis is wat dey call “Writer’s block”…well if it is…den m happy…why? Coz dis puts me in a club of “Writers” rite? Aren’t Dan Brown, Jeffrey Archer and John Grisham part of d same club? Guess dey wud be glad 2 hv me on board (hey guys…wassup???) ;)
So dis invariably goes out as a thank u note 2 all u ppl who labored thru my 1st post n who wud hopefully repeat d trend wid dis one too :) thanx a lot folks!!!

Hmmm….now wat do ppl normally write abt…I’m not rackin my brains on dat….guess I’ll just keep on typin wateva comes 2 my mind (I sure aint gonna get any prizes 4 dis)
Today’s a cloudy day in april…now how many Indians talk abt cloudy days in april….I hv never seen any before dis….4 all u aliens out dere, april is summer in india….n summer in india is HOT….wid a capital H-O-T…maybe it’s a lil less in Bangalore…but it sure isn’t cloudy usually.
I just thot of fillin up pages wid details of d weather rite outta my 4th grade geography text but den I guess u wud rather well read my geography text dan dis…lol
So I hv hereby decided 2 tell u something abt my oh-so-interestin life….hmmm….hmmm…hmmm….hmmm….ok let’s search 4 some other topic.
Yest was all-fools day….n no, no one quite made a fool of me….a frnd did try…but must say a pretty feeble attempt….she msgs me at 12.15 n says her wallet is missin n it mite be in my bag….i searched my bag n told her its not dere n lo behold I hv been fooled….its not missin….yeah I know wat u guys wud be thinking who exactly is a fool here….but I wud rather not comment on it….coz she’s a 300-pound monster n I don’t wanna take any chances….so d moral of d story is: “I was april fooled. No questions asked”
A frnd sent me James Blunt’s 1973….so hv been listenin 2 it over n over again….just luv dat number…man m I in luv wid his voice….luvd his earlier songs also….u r beautiful & goodbye my lover….d latter bein, accordin 2 me, one of d best songs ever on heart-break….must say sadness never felt dis gud ;-)
Hmmm…guess I’ll wind up 4 now...n wait till d next time 2 talk more abt my interesting life ;-) till den u can listen 2 James Blunt crooning:
“I will call you up every Saturday night
