Walking down a cobbled pathway, smiling at strangers, squinting at the sky, hands in my pocket, smell of coffee in the air, head's singing a song, heart skips a beat, just saw a handsome hunk, there goes a sigh, what was that song? scratched my head, nay thats not him, tapped my head, that tune was back again, got into my groove and walked down the lane. Another day, another job, working for the interpol, is not so easy or is it?

Back on track

Crossroads- All of us have been there. I have been there more than once. Though its a different set of choices everytime, the fear and confusion prevail!
Making a choice at a crossroad is not just about choosing a defined path to a solution or goal, but its the choice of a different life style.

After choosing through quite a few of them, I stumbled back on one familiar road and I was so glad that I did.
There were open arms, hearty laughs and mango shakes.

I would keep stumbling back on to this familiar trail time and again, and I would leave from here with more than what I came with, everytime!

Fundoo One-liners

Work is fine if it doesn't take too much of your time.

Marriage is one of the chief causes of divorce.

When everything comes in your way you're in the wrong lane.

Born free taxed to death.

Everyone has a photographic memory, some just don't have film.

Life is unsure; always eat your dessert first.

Smile, it makes people wonder what you are thinking. :D

If you keep your feet firmly on the ground, you'll have trouble putting on
your pants.

It's not hard to meet expenses, they are everywhere.

I love being a writer... what I can't stand is the paperwork.

The guy who invented the first wheel was an idiot.
The guy who invented the other three, he was the genius.

In a country of free speech, why are there phone bills?

If you tell a man there are 300 billion stars in the universe, he'll
believe you. But if you tell him that a park bench has just been painted, he has to
touch it to be sure.

If you can't convince them, confuse them.

It's not the fall that kills you. It's the sudden stop at the end.

Hot glass looks same as cold glass. - Cunino's Law of Burnt Fingers

Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups.

The cigarette does the smoking you are just the sucker.

Someday is not a day of the week

Well after four days of intense religious rituals and a lovely Easter celebration, here I am with a very interesting analogy presented by one of the priests, during the Good Friday sermon.

The Seven Deadly Sins
  • Wealth without Work
  • Pleasure without Conscience
  • Science without Humanity
  • Knowledge without Character
  • Politics without Principle
  • Commerce without Morality
  • Worship without Sacrifice
-By Gandhi

It definitely makes you think. Thats, if you allow it!

I fit the Bill

Well my Kill Bill quotient classifies me as none other than.......

Well this is about me-
You are Bill! You have some grudge issues, but other than that, you have some deep emotion and crazy martial arts skill. I'd be scared of you if I passed you on the street.

man-o-man-o-man I could'nt ask for more!!

The perfect boss

"As your leader, I encourage you, from time to time and always in a respectful manner, to question my logic. If you're unconvinced a particular plan of action I've decided is the wisest, tell me so, but allow me to convince you. And I promise you, right here and now, no subject will ever be taboo, except, of course, the subject that was just under discussion. The price you pay for bringing up either my Chinese or American heritage as a negative is: I collect your fucking head. Just like this fucker here. Now, if any of you sons of bitches got anything else to say, now's the fucking time! ... I didn't think so."

O-Ren Ishii; played by Lucy Liu

KILL BILL(Pure adrenaline)

Can I?

!!! IF !!!

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream-and not make dreams your master;
If you can think-and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings-nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And-which is more-you'll be a Man, my son!

-Rudyard Kipling

Cant believe it

Cant believe that things can happen anywhere and everywhere, without warning!
Cant believe that a beautiful evening can end this way!
Cant believe that we are so helpless!
Cant believe that life can swing form pure happines to total gloom in just an hour!

Last night I saw the bruised and battered body of one of my closest family member. She was injured beyond recognition. I am enraged that the car driver who knocked her down did'nt see her that way, I am enraged that he did'nt see the family weeping, he did'nt see the anguish and pain!!

'Accidents happen?' Well I dont believe that. Accidents just dont happen, they happen because of someones callousness, they happen because people disregard rules, they happen because people do not respect life, theirs and others.

A humble request to all the speed freaks- do not drink and drive, do not consider public roads as a Formula1 circuit, pedestrians are people too- they hurt more than the dent on your car or bike, driving rules are there for a reason-please follow them and please do wear a helmet, whats the point in having well combed hair when you wont have a head!

Its happening slowly, but happening for sure...... TRANSFORMATION !!

The Black week

Yup the Black week (aka Passion week) is here, no matter how much I run away from it, its back, again!!
Well Black week is the week which starts with Palm Sunday and ends in Easter.
For the uninitiated Palm Sunday is the day Jesus was welcomed into Jerusalem like a saviour and sacrificed like a scapegoat on Good Friday (Crucifiction) and on Easter sunday he was resurrected.

I am not a very religious person (well atleast not anymore) but the Christian values are imbibed very deep in me, its a definite result of years of conditioning. There was a time when I could'nt do without attending sunday mass', but slowly I have overcome that obligation too (along with a lotta others). I am not exactly happy with this transition, I realised this yesterday when I entered church again, after a very very long sabbatical and I was engulfed with the same old feeling which nurtured me for quite some time, we call it the 'spirit' and I see mine is still very much alive. So I guess even though I may not be a staunch Christian, I would always be a chistian never-the-less. My mom will be happy reading this! My sudden aversion to religion shocked her immensely, the thought of me turning into an atheist was overshadowed by her worst fear, me converting into another religion!! Ma, I can never do that!

Well back to Black week. I know that its just the re-enactment of what happened some 2000 years ago, but the pain and anguish which it creates in me has never diminished. I go through this very weird (thats the only word I could think of) cycle of feelings. Which starts with gloom, to fear, to anger, to pain, to suffering, to hope and finally joy, abundant joy.
Lets see if this year is any different!

My 10 golden steps

Since I ranted and raved, asking people to move on and stop being such pain in our bottoms, I thought I would also give them simple and 'exclusively free' tips on how to move on. This is my personal experience and people can take it or leave it, I give a rats bottom!

1. Firsshhtt... Stop associating all roads, shops, songs, clothes, sounds, smells, burps and things with your ex.

2.STOP JUST STOP listening to romantic songs and please chuck all those broken hearts songs in the bin, now, right now! Time to get initiated into heavy metal, people.

3.Chuck all pics of your ex in such a place that you would'nt find it for the next ten years. (By then you would have forgotten them anyway)

4.Never have any meals alone.

5.Call-up your friends who you had neglected or been extremely rude to, during.... you know when!!

6.Make new friends and lots, you need company. Never talk to them about your break-up, unless you really really really want them to know about it.

7.Work hard and party harder

8.DO NOT get into any new relationship within 3 months of break-up. Believe me you dont want that painful cycle repeating itself again and you would never be able to handle another break up. Atleast not as well as the first.

9.Get counselling or talk to friends about what you feel, take their advice seriously. But stop asking for sympathy.

And finally- the golden rule

So guys keep smiling and know that we all love you, yes you : )

PS : If none of these work, come to me and I have the ultimate solution- a smack on your head with a bat!

PSS: For all those who felt that I was rude , indifferent and totally insensitive in my previous blog 'Argh', lemme tell you that I was neither. The only feeling was anger and complete anger, seeing my friends in pain and not being able to do anything. I was there once and I know how much it hurt. But my friends pulled me out and thanks to them, I am back to being a devil today.......uhahahahahahaaaaaaaaa

Passing thought

Breathe in breathe out
Forget all angry thought
I wish to go for his throat
But I'll settle for a bullet in his gut!

Is it suddenly fashionable to be heart broken?
I have seen a few of my friends whose daily goal is to walk around with that sullen face with "sheesha ho ya dil ho" kinda song repeatedly playing in their head. Lifes full of ups and downs guys, stop making a big deal out of things which "especially" dont result in anything productive.

I am just tired of asking these friends to move on. I have lost quite a few of them for asking them to make this intelligent choice and some are in the process of breaking their ties with me.
Well lemme tell you that I am not interested in shifting my career to being a counselor or agony aunt, but when u see ur perfectly normal friend acting extremely bizzare and sometimes downright 'stupid' u have gotto get your hands dirty.

The truth is guys whenever theirs a breakup, believe me its your friends and family who take the toll. They may not be as hurt as you are, but they definitely are hurt- mostly by your behaviour, your attitude to life and most often because of the pathetic state you guys put yourself into, when you think the whole worlds against you.

For many of us, friends are emotional crutches. We tell each other things that our parents would faint, if they ever heard us. Believe me when I tell you that your friends know you better than you know yourself. So stop treating us like shit whenever you guys feel like and we can help you only as much as you want to help yourself.

Almost 98% of the people I have met have got their hearts broken sometime or the other in their life time, some, more than once! Not all of us are walking around in that Devdas mode getting ourselves drunk crazy and not all of us act like suicidal maniacs.
Heres the point guys, life seems to have ended and it seems like you just cant go on, without that special someone, But believe me, "IT DEFINITELY" does.

Firstly stop putting all your hopes and dreams on that one person. Remember after all she or he is human. They are also governed by laws of physics and society. They also hurt and feel, they also have families and friends, they also have a life. Secondly, remember that you have a life too and that there are people who have all their hopes on you. Remember that you only have one life, dont waste your precious youth by putting on all this unnecessary misery and pain. Not many people get that one chance to turn their lives around. Let it not be too late guys, you can sulk later in hell. RIGHT NOW is the moment to do the things you wanted to do, right now is the time to fly and touch the sky.

Life goes on guys, its high time you caught up with her

So stop being such babies, grow up and be mature to choose happiness over misery. And please stop being a pain in the lives of your family anf friends

Move on, oh please move on!

We pray to thee

Our Lager, which art in barrels,
Hallowed be thy fame.
Thy will be drunk, I will be drunk,
At home, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day, our foamy head,
And forgive our spillage,
As we forgive those who spill against us.
And lead us not to incarceration,
But deliver us from hangovers.
For thine is the Ale, the Pilsner and the Lager
Forever and ever



Ru heres to that first sip of heaven : )

We the people

Are'nt procrastinators the most hopeful people in the world?
I mean we know that there is 'always' a tomorrow, we also know that work WILL be done against all odds and we are the only people who go to sleep knowing that we will wake up.
Apart from that we learn to live for today, we push all unnecessary hassles and burdens to the future, to keep our today happy and relaxed. We know that we need to give more priority to us than work that way our priorities are straight too. We also live our lives to the fullest because our tomorrows are always loaded.
We are the survivors

Kinda liked this poem

Aisi Apni Wife ho
5'2" Jiski height Ho,
Jeans Jiski Tight Ho,
Chehara Jiska Bright Ho,
Weight Mein Thodi Light Ho,
Umar Me Difference Slight Ho,
Thodi See Wo Quiet Ho,
Aisi Apni Wife Ho.

Sadak Per Sab Kahe Kya Cute Ho,
Bhid Me Sab Kahe Side Ho , Side Ho,
India Ki Paidaish Ho,
Sas Ki Seva Jiski Khwahish Ho,
Aisi Apni Wife Ho.

Padosi Jab Baat Kare To Haath Me Knife Ho,
Dinner Candle Light Ho,
Dono Me Na Kabhi Fight Ho,
Milne Ke Baad Dil Delight Ho
Hey Prabhu Teri
Archana Uski Life Ho.
Yeh Kavita Padhke Sab Kahe
"Guru, Tum Right Ho"
Aisi Apni Wife Ho

Kaash Yeh Concept 0.0001 Percent Bhi Right Ho,
Agar Aisi Apni Wife Ho To
Kya Hasin Life Ho Har Kisi Ki Yahi Farmaish Ho,
Kudrat Ki Bhi Aajmaish Ho
Khudah Ke Software Mein Bhi Bug Ki Na Gunjaish Ho,
Ay Kaash,
Kahin to Ek Aisi Paidaish Ho, Aisi Apni Wife Ho

Probably bcos I (dont) fit the bill : )

I have a few

Close friends-
Who you can really abuse and not run for cover : )


Life's come to a strange kinda halt these days. Everything has stopped. Its like a ghost town.
No fun, no friends, no blogs, now interest, no money....screeeeeeech, No MONEY!!!
Haan! There it is! NO money, no wonder me aint happy!!
I should really 'try' hard and stop blowing all my cash, early in the month or are my suspicions finally coming true....hmmmm... I know ICICI is robbing my money!
Well my head says go with the latter.

Talking about my head, I think its trying to get rid of me. Did you ask 'why'?
Thats cos I have been keeping an eye on it (not literally) and I have noticed that it always says the wrong thing at the wrong time. Here are a few instances-
It asks me to jump off the building when I stand next to an open window
It asks me to touch live wires, just for fun
It tells me that I am a natural flier
It asks me to kick dogs and convinces me that I can out-run them
It asks me to slap my boss and see how he promotes me immediately
And many more things which it has cleverly erased out of my hard drive!!

To add to this woe, I just discovered that I am Schizophrenic!
Did u again ask 'why'?
I read the symptoms today and it matched perfectly with how I feel nowadays-

Hallucinations, severely inappropriate emotional responses, disordered thinking and concentration, erratic behavior, as well as social and occupational deterioration

Hey WAIT a sec....
Thats how all my friends feel!!

Todays gyan

Give it to me baby,
uh hu, uh hu
Give it to me baby,
uh hu, uh hu

Watched Seabiscuit last night and I just have one word to describe this movie, AWESOME. Just awesome.
Here are some reasons why -

George Woolf: "You want to know what I think?"
Charles Howard: "Of course."
George Woolf: "It's better to break a man's leg than his heart."

Tom: "You don't throw a whole life away just because it's banged up a little."

Charles: "Red you can't do it, you'll be crippled for the rest of your life."
Red: "I was crippled for the rest of my life. I got better. He made me better. Hell, you made me better."

Charles: "Our horse is too small. Our jockey's too big. Our trainer's too old. And I'm too dumb to know the difference!"

Charles:"Everybody loses a couple. And you either pack up and go home or you keep fighting!"

Red to Seabiscuit: "Don't stop boy! Don't ever stop!"

Charles: "Well I think we just gave him a chance. Sometimes all somebody needs is a good chance."

Tick Tock: "$100,000? Makes me wanna walk on all fours and put a saddle on my back."

Charles: "See, sometimes when the little guy doesn't know he is a little guy, he can do great big things."

Charles: "You are all here today because this is a horse that won't give up. Even when life beats him by a nose."

Red: "Jesus Christ.I wanna be a horse."
Tom: "You know you're almost big enough."
Red: "That's very funny."

Charles: "Just because we're little doesn't mean we're scared."
Charles: "Oh by the way, the horse doesn't know he's little. He thinks he's the biggest horse out there."

Marcela about Biscuit: "Seems pretty fast."
Tom: "Yeah. In every direction."

Red Pollard: You know, everybody thinks we found this broken-down horse and fixed him. But we didn't. He fixed us; every one of us. And I guess in a way, we kinda fixed each other too.

A must watch guys. This is not just a movie but an experience.
And at the end of the movie if you are really driven to buy a horse, just wait it out!!

Should write everyday. Should have a new blog ready every single day!!
yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn , will write tomorrow!!

A storm is all I foresee

Yes it hurts when you dont call
when you dont speak
when you dont care
It hurts more when you are not there

Sorry if you are everything I love
all that I crave
all that I want
I am sorry that you are not who you were

You came like a breeze
So gentle and so sweet
You wanna leave like one
But a storm is all I foresee

I cant hold on but I wont let go
Time trickles down, like blood on my brow
I am gonna wait this out or
I'm gonna end this right now

A storm is all I foresee, its gonna wash you out and me . . . .

Everyday blade

Most of the blogs I have read, talk about what the blogger does on a daily basis, I mean their blogs are their journals, while here I am trying to live one adventure after the other just so that I could make it to my blog!!
So I'm gonna make all my readers go though similar torture and let them use their already wasted neurons to store my (best seller) biography, except that I'll try to keep it as funny as possible with occasional butt cracks [grin]

Ok lemme start with today morning, I woke with the same feeling I wake-up everyday- 'waaaaaaaan I dont wanna go to work', but the thought of the axe-murderer aka the ever congenial sales man making rounds of my locality after 10 made me get off my comfy nest and reach office 'on time'. [collegues wide eyed and my director being revived from his heart attack. 'Now, now people get back to work, miracles happen!!]

Did'nt feel like doing much today so I just wandered around the hallowed portals of orkut and s-crapped in anybodys book I could find. A few were courteous enough to reply back. Then made some digs at my collegue M and she obliged with me having some more fun on her behalf. Then I dug up a few blogs and gave myself a healthy dose of gyan.

Did I mention M? Man theres something very scary about her these days.
I'm the kind who just walks by, spreads a few laughs, usually at someone elses expense and moves on. Nowadays my watering hole is M, but she is turning out to be a lil unpredictable. Recently at a concert she turned into a T.Rex, no kidding people, she really did! She just turned into the snappity snap T.Rex and who got it all back?? Poor me [yeah for once] And today at lunch I got a darshan of her fangs again and a butt pinch. grrrrrr.....
Sorry to disappoint you guys but most gals dont walk around in lingerie, pinching chicks butts and jiggling b@@ties in the rest rooms as shown in movies.
The truth is we go there to check on our spaceships, the ones which will take us back to our galaxy. The armageddon is near and all traces of testrosterone is gonna be destroyed.... oops, did I say too much!!

A lotta people have turned snappy nowadays, is it the weather or is it the month end?? I'll never know.
Anyway heres the joke i promised-

M.K.Shyamalan decided to make a movie.He wanted Bruce Willis to act in it.So he paid Bruce a visit.

Now Bruce was a rich man and he bought a big palatial bunglow.A few days after he had moved in,he made an unusual friend who had been living in the bunglow for scores of years.

After Shyamalan had been let into Bruce's house,he made himself comfortable.He was impressed by these spooky settings and decided that Bruce was the man.While he was thinking about this,he heard a noise behind him.

He turned around saying , "Bruce,I think you are the.......".

What greeted him was a sheet of ectoplasm.And then the ectoplasm spoke, " Hi! My name is Casper and I would like to be friends with you."

As Bruce was coming down the stairs,he caught sight of Manoj who was running at breakneck speed screaming "I seeee dead people!! I see dead people!!!"

And he was never to be heard from again.

Anyway thats it for today (phew) Evening i'm meeting Su who is treating me to Death by chocolate (DBC) at Corner House. My record is still unbroken- eating DBC in less than 15min. Tonight the champion might break her own.

In Lyn's house....
But maa, it was just an icecream.
-U know u had fever last night, right??
Maa did u know that a cow has four stomachs??
-Cant u ever stop talking about food and stomach??
