I too like to be loved
It was a cold morning and with gray clouds refusing the sun to warm the earth it was a fantastic day - to sleep. Suddenly I felt being dragged inhumanely. After a few seconds I was in air and then… THUD –I hit against a cold metallic surface. Blank. Now before all these happened life was beautiful. As usual, I was sitting beside an artificial pool, my favorite spot, in one of the software...

We the Humans
It is believed by many scientists that the human race is the result of long-term evolution of many unicellular organisms that existed millions of years ago. So, from the time a group of unicellular organisms decided to get together and take a new form, we have been evolving over time, from probably an algae or a bacterium to what we are right now. Before we became humans we would have...
5 things that I badly miss
If Farhan Akhtar can sing a song on what he lost/missed in 7 days, why can’t I write about 5 things I miss since a year? Hence this post. The following is not an exhaustive list but something that I badly miss and want them back right now! 1. Mom’s tasty food: After having tasteless, unhealthy food for more than a year, I’ve even started to think- Should I eat? At times I wish that God...
I’m back – If you like it or not!
It’s been almost two years since I blogged. And I have a very common, often heard excuse – No ‘Four-lettered-profanity’ing time. If any organization decides to present The Most Popular Excuse, this would win without any real competition. But actually when somebody says ‘I don’t have time’, one should interpret it as ‘I’m not interested’! Two years in one’s life can be really long. Longer when...
Salute the brave hearts!
Hats off to the NSG commandos and the other policemen who risked their lives for us! Thank you so much guys. The Mumbai incident just proved that if we are united we can fight terrorism, no matter how fierce they are! Lets pray for all those who sacrificed their lives for us. We owe you a lot! Hats off again! Let peace prevail everywhere!
One fine afternoon, I was napping, as usual. Suddnely! Hit it. Hit it! Kill. Kill. There! There! Go. Go. Thud. Thud. Thump. Cling. Cling. Thud! Followed by a silence. Then, ”I think it is gone”… This woke me up. I did not know what was happening. In that drowsy state I thought I was in some sort of a war zone. But my mom told me that our neighbour caught sight of a poor serpent and that...
A recent IM conversation
This is a part of the conversation I had with one of my friends Krishna Kumar aka Mappi, two days back. Have a look at it!
me: mappi.. wat is irony actu.. always had this doubt
u say one thing
and something exactly opposite happens
u say u can nvr be beaten
and when ur done saying it
ur on the floor
me: oh ok!
irony cannot be exactly described
me: thats the irony part
Mappi: i was partly right i guess
direct opposite of the percieved truth best example of irony
i got was from a cartoon
“so much a part of me and yet, I have to rip u apart”
me: hypocrisy is wat u said
hypocrisy is claiming you are something you are not
is close to the truth
but just not true enough
its something like
I believe I’m the strongest on this planet, until i got
beaten 2 secs later
Mappi: hypocrisy is saying I am as bad as K* at amrita
Mappi: and yeah
another good example
u see droopy?
in tom and jerry kids?
Mappi: droopy says, “I’m sooo happy!!!”
with a blank face
the word itself is confusing
Mappi: irony is so much a part of our life
yet we know very little about it
the very fact that we are going to work in a software company
after studying mechaal engg
u know what?
what we are discussing proves how jobless we are…
me: very true man!
Mappi: ironically, people might think we are pursuing a degree in english
wat the hell are we discussin!
This continued, to various topics like the movie QGM, existence of God etc., till my mother called me for dinner. I never thought I would chat on topics like “irony”! The sad thing is that even after such a long discussion I’m not sure what irony really is. It just shows how awfully jobless I am now. Thanks to recession,I reckon most of the engineering graduates are in similar condition. God save us!
Life at crossroads…
Life, at times puts you at crossroads. You just can’t decide what to do especially when there are many options open before you, each alluring with its promise of success and happiness. You yourself have many dreams and on top of that other people- those who care and also those who don’t – opine. You are not sure which is correct- yours or the others. Believe me, it is tough. People opine...
Entangled in the web
After my college, life hasn’t been beautiful. Lots of time to kill but there is practically nothing to do or that is what I feel. I’m just aimlessly idling in bed or in front of the computer, signing-in to the virtual world. That’s it. The only good thing that has happened during these days is that I’ve started reading books. Thanks to my friend without whom I wouldn’t have started. He...
Some Qs w/o As
Looking for answers to the following questions. I’ve heard so many people talk about how great Indian culture is/was. But do they really know what Indian culture actually is? What happens to the costumes -which are worth some thousands- that the actors and actresses wear in movies? Do they reuse it in another movie or keep it for themselves or are they auctioned? (I know there are crazy...
Officially the last day…
…in Amrita School of Engineering. Four years went by so fast, especially the final semester. The initial days are still fresh in my mind. Had some wonderful experiences in these four years, both good and bad. Learnt a lot from this college. Today was the farewell day. Our juniors had arranged a wonderful function. Everyone had a great time – posing for photos with their friends, loved ones,...

Ghajini – Music Review
Ghajini is obviously Aamir Khan’s most awaited movie of this year. The music was released on November 21, and the movie is expected to release on December 25. Music is by A.R.Rahman and lyrics by Prasoon Joshi. This is my review of Ghajini. Soundtrack consists of 1. Guzarish 2. Aye Bachchu 3. Kaise Mujhe 4. Behka 5. Latoo Guzarish This song sung by Javed Ali, is a soothing melody. The...
India’s declining culture
I recently got an email (a forward) from one of my friends (Devettan). This made me realise how great our culture ‘was’. Let me quote Lord Macaulay’s address to the British Parliament in 1835 regarding the greatness of our motherland. “I have travelled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such wealth I have seen in this...
A memorable test match
At the end of 5th day of the 4th test match, the scorecard reads India 441&295 Australia 355 &209 Result India won by 172 runs Series India won 2-0 What a memorable sight! India vs. Australia, 4th test match, is indeed a great match to remember. It was completely India’s, starting from day one. It was Laxman’s 100th test match, Saurav’s (Dada) last test match, Sachin (God) made his 40th...
A proud moment-Chandrayaan-1 enters moon’s orbit
Chandrayaan-1, India’s first unmanned spacecraft mission to moon, entered lunar orbit today. This is the first time that an Indian built spacecraft has broken away from the Earth’s gravitational field and reached the moon. Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft was launched on October 22, 2008 by PSLV-C11 from Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota. The lunar orbit insertion (LOI) was an important phase...
Yuvvraaj – Music Review
I know I will be the last person in this world to write a review for Yuvvraaj, this year’s most awaited musical thriller. It takes time to understand and appreciate A.R.Rahman’s (a genius’) songs. Each time a person listens to them it takes him to a different, new level. So it is tough to write a review. Subash Ghai is one of the few directors in Indian cinema who knows how important music is...
