Happy Anniversary - Tina & Gautam!!

To my lovely Sis and my best friend Gautam Wishing you a very very happy anniversary no.1 Wish we could be with you and the folks in LA!

Breaking up is painful

i wonder what i'll have to do differently..... to be understood.
i'm here to grow... to learn.... and be successful .
i tried my best, but incompetence has not the eyes or the ears to recognize.
but now - after 2 years 2 months and 25 days.... breaking up time is here (mentally).

i mean this would be a one sided breakup - as all breakups normally are.
breakups are painful - as will this be.
i don't have a clue where I'm going to go from here - i thought it would be for keeps.
now i will do only that much as is necessary to keep the ball rolling
if it's a gutter ball - then tough luck!

I know the recession is here.
Things will get tougher.
Maybe - this is an opportunity.
To start from scratch.
Doing the things I want to.
Rather than that which I have to.

I know he may read this.
I know he will never admit to having read this.
But his constant "well meant" advice has finally taken its toll.
He is what he is - but then so am I.
Time for him to stew in his own pie.

Then mebbe - …

Sit with him for 10 minutes.
He will talk.
You will listen.
He will drain you and fill you.
Drain you out of energy, willpower.
Fill you up with resentment and the urge to throw caution to the wind and tell him to go to hell.

It's an art that not many have perfected.
Yet he does it with ease.

He will not lose his cool. Yet - he will make you lose yours.
It's like the world is absent of happiness... of peace... of that little cul de sac... where my mind might know some peace!!

Episodes in Black & White -2

Sups feels the CHILLLLL
Vishal does his THING..... truly inspiring I do my thing... by the river!

2008 is coming

Holy Smoke!!
the end of the year is upon me....
I have no resolutions ready for the year ahead...
no promises to break in this year....

I keep wondering what i did that the year flew by
I must do that again.. in 2009!!!

I don't think I'm ready for 2009 - just yet.....
some unfinished business - in 2008!

Ma is coming!!

I'm really looking forward to Christmas this year...
Ma is coming down from Kolkata for a week with us...
This should be fun.
Being with famly is always tons of enjoyment :-)
Arjun Happy!!

Interesting Reads!!

I do a lot of online reading - following blogs and websites from the personal, technical, business and MISC sectors! Thought I'd share some of the intereting reads of the week with you.

Barkha on TRIAL
Got this from Shobha Des Blog!
Liked her viewpoint on how we INDIANs exhibit the Scorpion Mentality to all around us. Our biggest enemy is US... not the guys outside!

This is a must watch film!! Check out its page at IMDB.

Cleanup Ideas
Supriya has some ideas on how we can clean up the state of affairs.

Do you wanna be a player??
I follow BOING BOING quite religuously. Here's their take on getting a piano on your shirt

BRITNEY Rebounds
It was not so far back that folks wrote her off. SHe's back with a bang - and her new album - CIRCUS - got off on the right foot!! With Brittney - it's always like a crest and trough phenomenon.... i wonder when the next trough is coming (or not - i hope)

Get GMAIL to help you...
Hey - we all use GMAIL b'cos of the storag…

Bald men feel cold

I know this from personal experience. I'm sure you hairy wonders feel the winter chill too. But skintops minus the bush always experience heightened chills. This erosion may be due to natural causes or a strategic decision to have a barren playground in the north.

The same is true for the environment.
We chop down that last bit of green cover for our use.
The poor earthman is going bald. He's gonna feel the chill very soon.

It's time gave him a cap!!
A green one preferably

Stand Up... and be counted!!

Yes - this is a POSED FOR pic...
But I think it symbolizes what we should be doing now.
Stand up and be counted.... against ALL that is wrong.
The Terrorists are just a sign of the rot that has seeped in. We need (all of us that is) to start following some common rules and laws as a starter....

The rest will follow!!

No more BRIBES!!

on my way home

Darkness clouds the road ahead. This lack of light thereof hurdles my return home to my loved.
A beam of light cuts thru from time to time as we cover patches where this darkness is less than pronounced.
I should be afraid!
But I revel in the risk of the moment
Somewhere up ahead the grim reaper is searching for me as he does for all of us.
This hide and seek must end - sooner or later.

I'm no exception to the general rule - though I wonder what immortality would be like.
maybe it would be like this leaf... stuck in a morass!!

VIP culture

Mrs. Indira gandhi was assassinated.
Mr. Rajiv gandhi was assassinated.
So bloody what?
There are innumerable cases of Indian families losing fathers , sons & daughters in wars and conflicts over the years.
So did their next of kin get X Y Z category of protection? I don't think so.

I know it's time to end the VIP culture and live in a real democracy. The politician in India has jumped the queue, expects garlanding at airports and loves his status quo. Why should I change my route for a fucking prime minister or any bastardized politician. If I lose my life in an ambulance because I could not get to the hospital on time since there was a holdup and a politician with xyz level of threat responsibility.

This is personal and I don't really care who gets hurt. Maybe it is time to hurt the parliament again - this time with more success.

I sincerely hope that the NSG walks away at the time

Action time

I pay my taxes on time. Have been paying them for quite some time now. But I don't seem to be getting enough bang for my bucK.
Have you?

This nation of Gandhi is becoming a collection of gaa***s.
The American said it straight - our way or the highway and backed it up with guns. Time for Bharatmata to do the same.

I've watched the news channels more in the last week than in the lat two years. It's the phase of becoming aware - of realizing it doesn't take much to lay us down. We are vulnerable. We are being taken advantage of and nothing we do other than lay back, spread our legs and hold up a big sign - DO ME!!!


Here I am ... Trying out blogging from my BBERRY BOLD.

This should be fun.
I shall be blogging more often now.

Let's just have a war!!

Catch the Paki bastard do his talk on the following link
Trust me - that old man and the bitch on television are gonna get it.
I think it's time for a war here.

It'll cost us in lives... but the end result will be worth it.
Let's all just piss (all at once)  - Pakistan will be under 6 ft of liquid for a long long time to come!!

Just got some more news that came in from our local statisticians : 4000+ attacks on indian soil form 1970-2004
This is as compiled by the University of Maryland....
