Woooohhhooooow Bangalore is back with its chilly, grey, romantic rainy days.

We Bangaloreans have a love-hate relationship with the rain.

Hate it for the inconvenience it causes- wet, slippery, flooded roads, wet clothes, dirty shoes, power cuts, unavailabilty of boats, so having to resort to swimming!!

Love the rain for the clean, green Bangalore, the source of our lives n livelihood, the carefree walk in the rain, the rain dance, the cleansing of the past n the new beginning, the fluttering of my heart thinking of someone, the smile on my face reflecting the smile of God in His rainbows.

Rain is a relief. From the past, from the pain, from the loss.The divine cleanser which reaches my soul and makes me dance. For I have found my childhood again, I'm carefree again n I just felt HIM again.

Rain Clouds in the sky, Don't know why
They make me blue, when I'm thinking of you
Maybe they want to cry, As I walk on by
Hiding my tears, in a world of good byes

Love during summer rain, Causes no pain
Cause I'm looking back, at you once again
Memories crowding my mind, You're one of a kind
Life with out love, I'm helpless I'm dying

Rain drops and dance, strange kind of romance
I don't know why (whether) to cry out loud, But I'm feeling fine
Watch the rhythm of the rain falling down

Rain drops and dance, strange kind of romance
I don't know why (whether) to cry out loud, But I'm feeling fine
Watch the rythm of the rain falling down

Rain falling around, Its just the sound
I like to here, when my hearts feeling down

Try to smile once again, As they slash in my window pain
I quiet like that, I don't mind
I've got no complaint

Rain drops and dance, strange kind of romance
I don't know why (whether) to cry out loud, But I'm feeling fine
Watch the rhythm of the rain falling down

What a Wonderful Day

I see trees of green, red roses too

I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

The colours of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shakin' hands, sayin' "How do you do?"
They're really saying "I love you"

I hear babies cryin', I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world

Oh yeah
- Louis Armstrong

'Pehala Nasha' kind of a feeling ;)
There goes my sweater....

Official notice:

Due to excessive expenditure on my prepaid cards I have decided to hold on to the 41ps balance in my phone as long as I can stretch it or walk around with a straight face holding a useless phone, like in those good old college days!!
In the mean time I might (blame it on that good-for-nothing Hooch) receive ur messages n only smile back in response- which would without doubt be laced with immense gratitude, laav n affection.
Remember this is the best reply that any of u could EVER get, so hold on to 'em. This limited edition offer will be available on first come first serve basis or whoever could flatter me the most : )
Please forgive my stinginess errr.. state of monetary challenge & remember ur vows that you would be my friends in health, stealth, wealth n low phone balance.
Laav ya all,
Urs in debt,

Its gettin hot in here

Awakened by the jolt of Caffeine (at last) I'm sitting here writing this blog on a sultry saturday afternoon at.. at.. at.. where else but work yaar!!!
Here 'work' is just a noun-the rest is left for u non-mensans to decipher.

Wats new??
Just bought a new pair of Wrangler jeans from the mall for Rs **9/-
Have'nt tried them out yet, but I can already smell something fishy!
I mean something so good & branded for such a measly...errrr.... reasonable amount, who would'nt??!!

Just noticed the huge dent on my forehead resembling my neighbour's Maruthi, due to repeated collisions with the key-board.
Its high time we invented soft n fluffy, padded keyboards to prevent such acci-dents at work & which also aid us in 'deeper' thinking.

Idea !! Patent!!
And nobody is stealing my patent this time!
I'm not gonna lose this chance to pay my 'debt to the society' again, like I did with the nail-polish-blow-drier (Item code 4831 on Zee telemarketing), hair-color-detector, tricolored-cardboard-straw, manual-cassette-rewinder to just name a few!

I have run out of music to listen to. My favourites this week turn into
I_dont_want_to_listen_to_them_ever_again list the next week!! Another reason to sulk...[sigh]

Suddenly I have run out of things in my life worty of writing about too!!
Is this writers block or just lack of stimulating experiences?
I know friends who have visited new places, trekked mountains, swam the seas, made friends with the leeches,been to late night shows & to every pub n disc in the city, sorry town of Bangalore & here I am playing my role of the "respectful" daughter- saving my family's honor- to perfection.Who never reaches home later than 8 at night n doesnt even dream of leaving Bangalore seeking alien adrenaline rush for the fear of being away from home n ever-monitoring family!!!!
When I'm not able to fill this blog with my experiences what will I fill my autobiography with??
I know, I'm going to be like Jesus Christ (no not in divinity)
Like Him the first 30 years of my life will go unrecorded, bcos theres NOTHING to RECORD!!!
What chilling n thrilling excerpts from my life would I narrate as night-time stories to my children & their children n their...????
I guess my regular masala story would be- How I sat before my computer week after week, gaining valuable experience in 'The Tanning Effects of Computer Rays' - that should put them to sleep early!!
"101 ways to sit at home pining"
Or better still
"Kalapani, The Inside Story"

Wait a sec.....
Why cant I talk about my Cyber adventures??
The word of the future will be "Virtual Reality"!!!
Whose gonna talk about sweat n grime??! Whose gonna believe in calorie wasting, costly n time consuming adventures!??
Its goint to be the era of the who is who in virtual adventure inc.
And here I am with all the my exhilarating adventures, the stuff Legends are made of.
Suddenly my life isnt as boring as it seemed. I have acheived feats in Virtual Reality never concieved before!!!!
My autobiography would define the new-age science fiction!! It will be the bench mark for Virtual-Reality-partly-fictitious-page turner-series
Again, Hope reigns in Lyn-ville........

I'm ending this blog before my optimism drains away with the effects of caffeine!

Someone just told the three magical words to me......

Yesssss..... there is a God afterall!!!!

Krackpot Kadlekai

Well I guess thats what I am sometimes atleast. Why?? U'll see
Right now in my head: Why yaar, I mean I know the answers to all the questions, I know how the events are gonna turn out, I know when things are gonna backfire but still expect different results n to top it all I depress myself that things arent going MY way when I know that I'm just a pawn in the game!! (nope i'm not even a bulldozing Rook in my life....well not yet)
For the hundredth time lemme think about it, is it worth taking control of MY life???
Be responsible for my choices, victories n goof ups. Make everyday a new adventure, a pursuit to acheive whatever I will- run, drive, eat, dance, fall, kill( in the long run) or chose to just laze around doing nothing & wait for the sands of time to slip away through my fingers.
If so then who will I blame my failures on?? Who will I take for granted?? Who will I trust no matter what goes wrong??
Is this why I live with my parents??? Willingly leading a life of a hypocrite!???
Is this why I'm gonna marry someone my parents found best for me n 'settle down' ???
Once bitten twice shy , so here I take the beaten path again.
Oh sweet life I embrace thee wih pseudo-adventures & secret-rebellion

They say
it takes a minute to find a special person,
an hour to appreciate them,
a day to love them, but then
an entire life to forget them.

These get me through

I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is
stalk them and hope they panic and give in...

I've learned that one good turn gets most of the blankets.

I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people are just

I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and it only takes
suspicion, not proof to destroy it.

I've learned that whatever hits the fan will not be evenly

I've learned that you shouldn't compare yourself to others - they are
more screwed up than you think.

I've learned that depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.

I've learned that it is not what you wear; it is how you take it off.

I've learned that you can keep vomiting long after you think you're

I've learned to not sweat the petty things, and not pet the sweaty

I've learned age is a very high price to pay for maturity.

I've learned that I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy it.

I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, unless we are

I've learned that artificial intelligence is no match for natural

I've learned that 99% of the time when something isn't working in your
house, one of your kids did it

I've learned that there is a fine line between genius and insanity.

I've learned that the people you care most about in life are taken
from you too soon and all the less important ones just never go away.
And the real pains in the ass are permanent.

Again written by an anonymous author or got lost lost in the long list of forwards!!

Loved a poem after a long time

Kyun hai ?
Waqt to chal raha hai usi raftaar se,
meri zindagi mein sab kuch thehera kyon hai ?
Gile-shikve ruk jaate hain hoton tak aakar,
har lafz par khamoshi ka pehera kyon hai ?
Dil keheta hai mohabbat nahin qayamat hai yeh,
phir dil ki deewar par tera chehera kyon hai ?
Aur bhi zakhm hain tere zakhmon ke siva,
tere hi zakhm ka daag itna gehera kyon hai ?????

Here Iam to gather my pearls of wisdom PAINFULLY acquired last week. My maturity doubled in just 7 days .....lifes lessons are crammed!!
Well here they are

1) I cant impress my mom no matter how good or bad I am.
2)Stop taking guilty trips cos they never make me feel good & the longer it is the worthless I feel....so I'm gonna decline the role of Lady Macbeth and be a simple spoilt city brat.
3)I have to talk to my BF (occasionally) to see if our expectations are overtaking each others!!
4)If I wanna have fun then I better be cool.
5)*This point is corrently under maintenance*
With all this Gyan I can now take on anybody n any situation.....I guess!
I hope to imbibe them in my years.....errr...days to come. A few of them are gonna backfire for sure but then life's a gamble I'm willing to bet on.
Yesterday we had a new priest in the group sessions who spoke to us about "How to pray the WHOLE day".The technique (which was imparted to us free of charge) was to associate our breath with the name of Je-sus. I practiced that for 14 min yesterday & tried that for two seconds today but my mind was too preoccupied to just think about one name!!!
I have been mailing like a maniac today as well, my partner in crime RM & I have exchanged about 110+ mails with each other. Who needs a chat room or messenger when we have fast n efficient internet access n the patience & time to go with regular mail . Nope its not heights of joblessness but just an earnest effort to keep in touch with friend/s & utilise company resources!
The curtains are down on monday at last.....now am 5 days closer to sunday,-which is going to flash by me faster than light-but its the hope of a fun weekend which keeps me going through this drudgery.
Monday comedy here I come..........................
