Splash.. :-)



It poured and how!!
Wet to the bone and loving it :)!

Driving on the road in the downpour, it occurred to me that..
Yeh world hain na world..isme do tarah ke log hote hain!
Ek jo "patient" hote hain
Aur doosri jo "impatient" hote hain

Impatient drivers:
- Are ones who are anger driven. (me, me, me!!)
This variety mouths foul sumthings, shouts swear words and thinks "meri road meri marzi"

- Are ones who are *ishtyle* driven.(not me, not me, not me!!)
This variety is found not only among the teens but also increasingly among middle aged uncles with receding hairlines and halos (read "bald") on der head.
Snaking through the traffic is like winning an olympic medal for them. Go try F1, uncle!

*Sigh*


Patient drivers:
- Are ones who are *thought* driven (sometimes me!)
They have these infinite thoughts running in their heads..
Someone's jus' bore the brunt of his/her mom/dad/wife/boss (not necessarily in that order) and are busy lamenting.

- Are ones who are uncles, aunties, granddads, grandmoms, old chachas, old mamas, old mamis, old nanas, old nanis..need i say more? :)

- Are ones who are extra cautious, extra careful, extra slow!! (definitely not me..!)
Total losers...driving at a snail's pace in the middle of the road.
"The traffic may honk like mad behind me..I will go at ma own pace (< 20kmph)" variety.

- Are the singing variety. (Ya! They exist..! definitely me :))
Some of them hum songs..some others howl songs(damn!) !!
Exampli Gratia:
Dude on bike caught hollering in the rain
"Where's the party tonite?! Sumwhr down the hill"
Jus' wanted to stop him and tell --
"Dude, its road and not hill" (Swell!)

Well wot can i say?

"Yovadi picchi vaadiki anandam." -- Telugu saying
(Whose mental his happiness)


Karaoke -

Ek Nazar main bhi pyaar hota hain
Maine sunaa hain
Do baaton main bhi ikraar hota hain
Maine sunaa hain

There were times..



..when I used to fail in Hindi first language, ma Hindi grammar was "ped ko upar" [instead of "ped ke upar"] and later I became the Hindi topper :)

..when I was broke and a 100 bucks would mean the world to me and now I could lend some dough maself :D
[Ok ok I still borrow dough! Confession!!]

..when I used to write to a children's mag incesstantly and ma dad was mad at me for wasting ma time until one fine day(s) I got cash prizes for the same :)

..when rains meant sitting at home, getting cozy wid a blanket, chai and pakodis and now its sitting at work, getting cozy with code, coffee and bug fixes :(

..when sketching meant attempting to draw trees,rivers,clouds etc. only now its replaced by doodling at boring meetings :(

..when getting to watch/hear ma favorite Hindi music meant waiting for Chitrahaar, Rangoli..and now its as easy as switching to FM, ipod..

..when Saturday meant "hurrrrrrrrray" [since Saturdays were half days at school] and now its Friday evening !!! still hurrrrrrray :)

..when Sunday TV watching meant Ramayan,Mahabharat etc..and now its HBO, Star Movies 24/7 :)

..when writing crap like above was possible only in ma diary..and now it is possible to publish online and call it "blogging" :)
[But i still *publish* in ma diary :)]

Yay! Times change..

Karaoke:

chanda chamke cham cham chikhen chaukanna chor
chiti chaate chini chatori chinikhor..

..pakke ped par paka papita paka ped ya paka papita
pake ped ko pakde pinku pinku pakde paka papita
[This is the best part of the song! Aamir's rendition rocks!:)]

The Wake up call



Just want to scream ma lungs out now!

Last nite, I was like a zombie..like a brain-dead person..with the TV switched on..and the Ger vs Italy match goin' on..but my mind transcending a different horizon..

Without sleep and several thoughts in ma head. I went up to ma terrace and stood out in the cold, gazing at the stars, reflecting..

* I never cared or bothered much when ma parents did not pamper me ever. They never do. Its good they do not for several reasons..But I want to be pampered now :(

* I had this abyssmal feeling of not being cared/loved by anyone. And the feeling sucks.

* I have this yellow smily (a ball) at ma desk. I want to be like it. Ever-smiling and never hav depressing thoughts..Not even for a second.

* I was driving today morning to work..and someone tried to overtake me from the left..I shouted "Cant you fcuking wait for a second?" and felt terrible the next second for having said that :(

* There is so much to do at work. And it kills me to be way behind schedule.

* I know am cut out for bigger things..But I never take the initiative..I only dream..and so it remains jus that.."a dream!"

* Everything is so pseudo in this world. Nothing is for real. Nobody is for real.
To each his own..

* I want to give up everything..whatever it is am doing now and go hide sumwhere..in deep woods..and neva come back..Not that I fear the world..I fear myself more than the world around me. That everything I do/say is jinxed.

Yeah I am fooling maself..

Just random!



[Long time..so long post! hehee:)]

Seriously...jus' the random thoughts in ma head now..

* A lazy lazy Saturday..So fished out ma "When Harry Met Sally" DVD :)
And I hafta write it out..the dialog that makes me giggle even before it kicks off!

-- start of dialog --

Sally: He just met her... She's supposed to be his transitional person, she's not supposed to be the ONE. All this time I thought he didn't want to get married. But, the truth is, he didn't want to marry me. He didn't love me.
Harry: If you could take him back now, would you?
Sally: No. But why didn't he want to marry me? What's the matter with me?
Harry: Nothing.
Sally: I'm difficult.
Harry: You're challenging.
Sally: I'm too structured, I'm completely closed off.
Harry: But in a good way.
Sally: No, no, no, I drove him away. AND, I'm gonna be forty.
Harry: When?
Sally: Someday.
Harry: In eight years.
Sally: But it's there. It's just sitting there, like some big dead end. And it's not the same for men. Charlie Chaplin had kids when he was 73.
Harry: Yeah, but he was too old to pick them up.

-- end of dialog --

* Huh?! Whats with men and not liking girls who wear floaters? Why,why why???
All am doing is havin' ma dinner in ma own jolly good world..and ma senior has to tell
"You know those floaters..they arent meant for girls!"

*Fuming*

Hell! Am still wearing them..and will continue to do so!

"Wearin floaters is ma birth right and I shall hav it!"

hehee:) Btw, do they have a "We love floaters" orkut community?

* Its mighty mighty irritating if a mosquito bites you on the tip of the finger..and u cant even itch!
Damn those bastards, they bring in so many diseases..malaria, filaria..am sure they are the ones behind AIDS too.! Go catch dem!

* Ah so...ders sum mundane mediocre desi Indo English movie playin' on STAR.
Title: "Life is not all ha ha he he" [Phew!!]
Laila Rouss is smoochin' evry arbit guy der..
Tryin to make sense of the nonsensical crap...when ma dad [ma english movie partner..] chirps

"You know you guys are so so lucky! Damn you people have all the freedom in the world..Those days they show a flower, a leaf or an umbrella in a movie...and its meant to be a kiss...goddamit.."

hahaha :)

* Hmmm. Been to "Phir Hera Pheri" recently.
Liked this dialog immensely..
"Har dhoti pehnewala Gandhi nahin hota"

LOL! :)

* I got one of those umpteen calls for credit card/personal loan thing while at work..Jus occurred that I might jus as well hav sum fun..

Caller: "Good Morning. This is citi financial..Are you Vijayakumar?"
[Aaargh! They always think am a dude named Vijayakumar! Ok so be it..]
Me: "No am not..are you?"
Caller: "Am looking for Vijayakumar.."
Me: "Shall I go search for one..?"
Caller: "Errr..ma'am am calling from citi...we are offering personal loans..."
Me: "Am not sure Vijayakumar would be interested. But thats when we actually find him..Where is he? And how's he doing? I gotto meet him. So do you know where he is..Its been long..."

Beeeeeeeeeeep! Hung up!

Am such an angel I know ! :)
