Learnings from the year gone by!!

Every year throws up its own set of issues and solutions.
2007 wasn't any different.
It's just that the issues this year had more of a global impact!
  • Arjun is not to argue with women - he stood some semblance of a chance in the past - now that he's married & that too to a lady whose profession is arguing - he stands no chance!
  • All thoughts of purchasing goodies for oneself are to be taken in perspective - multiply the cost of the item bought for self by a factor of 2 to 3 (depends on mood of lady) and provision the said amount for her purchases. - this ain't true - but you get the general idea!
  • There is MOM & there is MA - both will shower you with love - but one must tread carefully cos this is a slippery path - where they all have tender nerves.
  • Half gharwalis are the only ones with unconditional love
  • The X Box 360 is a good gaming console - but one must console oneself to enjoying its delights on a very limited basis after the matrmonial bond is entered into.
  • Even if you do things the same way as you used to before marriage - comments to the effect that you have changed are to be expected.
  • When your sister gets married - the bridegroom can call you SAALA - and you must feel nice about it.
  • The urge to party every weekend dies out.... after a while!
  • Romantic movies are for cosy viewing - action thrillers are when you take a day off from work and go watch them alone!
  • The garbage must be taken out by 7:30AM in the morning!
  • The INTERESTING DVD/VCD collection is no longer accessible.
  • One must become adept at living the life of a SERF - everyone is BOSS except you!
  • Office is fun!!
Everything i said above is a load of cr**. I'm sure you don't believe me - neither do I.

The piano man

Sitting bored in the mall when we could be shopping for her gift. The lady is on an official call, so I'm sitting by the wayside observing the man in the centre of the atrium. He's playing a piano. Hence the name - piano manHe's playing a melody oblivious to the sea of humanity around him. No mean task as it is. His tunes run a plethora of melody with no fixed agenda as it is. He looks around hoping someone would make a request - but the crowd treats him like they would an invisible entity. There's pain in the back of his mind and heart. Nothing hurts an artiste more than invisibility. He never knew he'd end up like this playing the walking melody to thousands. His music had always been planned on the good graces of melody with people singing in chorus.
That things did not go as planned, well no surprise there. Circumstance might have been fortuitous had he been willing to bend over. Ever the true blooded artiste, he'd chosen the path less traveled.Now the wai…

If life was a Hollywood film... the action would be intense,
It's actually closer to Bollywood... with the same people and the same stories.

Giving up on real life opportunities to create the iconic twists, the hallmark of great cinema and it's storytellers. If every story had the same ending, how would one imagine the what-ifs of life?

Some stories come out best when they start with an ending. It makes for more poignant stories when you deal with certain characters. There is an element of drama on an unfulfilled love story or unrequited love too.

The mundane is never enough for some of us. The happily ever after is an ending from the fairytales of the brothers Grimm.
