Warning: This is a blog that lacks intellectuality. My levels of IQ stand as lofty as that of Paris Hilton's pet pomeranian and my knowledge of current affairs is as deep as Mandira Bedi's of cricket. I mostly ramble about the trivialities of my everyday life, F.R.I.E.N.D.S, friends n family, movies, cricket; basically thoughts that would enter the mind of any Sita, Gita or Rita.

Note: I was busy drooling over the pages of Playboy during my English classes in school. So please bare with any grammatical blunders or the obvious lack of classic literary writing. (I was a little confused between the selection of 'bear' and 'bare' in the sentence above so I resorted to my favorite inky-pinky-ponky routine)

If you happen to pass by, feel free to register your presence. coz yeh duniya bahot chhoti hai aur yeh zindagi bahot lambi. Kya pata, someday somewhere, you and I might end up discussing about it over a cup of garam garam masala tea.

Men are from Mars, Women are from Milan

*A casual conversation while strolling around in the mall*

Friend: You know I end up buying a lot of shoes.

Me: Thats cool. If you like something, just buy it. That's what I believe in.

Friend: But I have a lot of shoes and footwear.

Me: Hmm. How many?

Friend: ##

Me: 17!

Friend: 70

Me: 70! Oh. You mean in your entire lifetime

Friend: No. Currently.

Me: (Of course I could not respond immediately. That is too much data even for a guy.)

Friend: But I don't think 70 can be called the correct number. There are a few that I no longer wear - about 5 of them. (pause) So how many pairs do you have?

Me: 5

5 Point Someone

Dear Blog Buddies,

No! Neither have I been kidnapped by Himesh to sing playback for him nor am I on a honeymoon trip with Katrina. [I wish I the latter was true]

Of course! I haven’t forgotten you guys. The big bad world out there is trying its best to make that happen. I was even offered zillions of Zimbabwean dollars to elope onto a honeymoon trip with cute Kati[obsession is a virtue I excel at] but maine bhi RGV ki Aag pe haath rakh kar pratigya li ki I will not be tempted by such lucrative offers. Bottom-line, I haven’t forgotten you guys. There are innumerable occasions when my mind wanders into the blog word while listening to a professor who is trying his best to infuse the concepts of macro economics into my small and innocent brain. Bachhe ki jaan lene ki yahan puri koshish hoti hai :(

I often wonder what you guys would be upto. I often wonder how Tinns would be managing all by herself in Chennai. Or whether HP too would be enjoying the C&H strip that I am having a laugh about. What pagalpanti the sarcasm king Abhinav might be upto. What would Shatab be doing in her new city. What would the Bhai be offering at her Bar. What new place or food item would Pizzadude be at. How would Shub’s training for the 42 be going on. How old might Santa’s Ruffie be. What new weekend trip would Nids be planning. What new laws would Madsie be learning. When would Farah be writing another spell-binding story. What innovative ways might Chrizzy be inventing for making the world laugh and smile. Who would be Keshi’s new crush. What awesomely clever PJ would Stupid be upto. What architectural masterpiece would Ceedy be handling. What beautiful poetry would our Dr. Pri be weaving. What new pagalpanti would Ms. Kido be upto. When would Kanan be planning her next trip to India. What lovely quatrains would Joie be penning down. Wondering what next movie review would Rakesh do. What PJs would Mr. Sarath be cooking up in his hostel. What would Vands's new photography series be. When would the Bhai be serving us another cup of Chai. Or simple go crazy thinking as to what spam comment would Anonymous be posting on my blog ;)

[There are a lot of people I have met on the blog journey. Above, I have just mentioned a few of my pehle pehle blog buddies. Agar kisika naam chuk jaane ki gustakhi hui ho, toh bande ko maaf kar dena. Also, I am sorry for not having replied to comments on the blog. And here's a big giant frantic waving Hi! to people who have taken the trouble of following this blog. I hope this post explains things to you guys and you don't remain mad with me. Iss post ke baad bhi gussa rahe toh sab ke liye do-do khoke Alphonso mangoes ke ready rakhe hai :P]

Yes! I have been a bit busy caught up with things these days. Not that I do not get time at all but the problem is that blogging does take up a fair amount of time. Because it is addictive. Because it is never about your own blog. But rather about your blog, and your friends’ blogs, and friends’ of friends' blogs, and the comments on your blog, and the comments on your friends’ blogs, and the comments on friends’ of friends' blogs. And sadly I have not been able to enjoy this luxury during my stint at MBA :(

However! The past 6 months here have been an awesome experience. This place has been amazing. This is a place where students live by the mantra ‘Work hard, party harder’. There are innumerable days when the mind and body are stretched beyond limits. Each day is a day when you challenge yourself, stretch yourself, to explore new dimensions, to discover yourself. A place where you can sleep all night, not study for the examination, and still do better than the dude who was up all night preparing for the examination :D A place where skill, aptitude and, most importantly, common sense matter. A place which knows how to party - may it be the Diwali celebrations, its annual fest, or the JLTs that go well beyond the first rays of dawn... I always wanted to pursue a 2 year full time MBA. I am glad I did not compromise on that. Anyways, mere baare mein bahot baatein ho gayi. Baaki baatein nichhu diye hue IDs pe kar sakte hain:




Well, I have put up the LinkedIn ID just to sound professional enough and not come across as a kool duud who is vhary vhary frandlie and wants to do frands with hot guys and smart girls [Did I misplace the adjectives ;)] Just to let you know that I have not been and may not be very active [After all, the ‘Photos of Me’ have outnumbered ‘Photos by Me’] on these forums but I would certainly love to know what is going on in your lives when I login into any of them :) And I would most definitely jump at the opportunity of being able to meet anyone of you. [Proof here]

Chalo toh bhidu log, abhi ke liye apun tata bye-bye karta hai. And as 2010 begins, here’s me wishing you all a very Happy Yappy New Year. And here’s my lil message:

Do not be always stressed out working for the trivial things in life: For a hefty increment, for clinching that all-important deal, for a six-figure salary, for a corner office.

Do take out time for the more important things in life: Laugh. Smile. Act crazy [It helps maintain the balance in life]. Tell people that you love them. And that you care. Show them you will always be by their side. Keep your surroundings clean. Be responsible citizens. Do not take things for granted. Appreciate. Thank. Enjoy your cup of tea. Have a cup of coffee with your friends. Look at the sky once in a while. Catch a cold in the rain. Go on a long drive. Sleep like a baby. Sing. Dance. Express. Enjoy the present. Dream. Live.

PS: 3 Idiots dekha kya mamu? Nahi dekha toh Go! Watch it with your idiots :)

Truly yours [always],
Urv

yeM Bee yAy

Her: So you are leaving me eh?!

Him: *silence*

Her: Oh come on! Be a man! Blurt it out!

Him: It's not what you think.

Her: Oh! don't give me that crap. You are all the same. You come, you have fun and then you leave.

Him: But I always loved you with all my heart. I never cheated on you. I never even thought about anyone else when I was with you.

Her: And now what! You got bored of me!

Him: Don't say that. It's not like that. How do I explain myself. Its just that this is something I always saw myself doing. This was kinda my first love. But I will always remember the days we spent together. I will always have a special place for you in my heart.

*Veer-Zara music plays in the background*

Those table-tennis games, that mail fiasco, the annual parties, those SCJP sessions, system no **29, employee id **35, that 2 o'clock phone call, all those memorable luncheons, the gyaan sharing, all the pagalpanti, fultoo mastigiri and so much more. I will definitely miss this place *sigh*

People say 'Love your job.' I say love your company too. Aakhir pyaar baant ne se badhta hai :)

6 x 6 = 36

There are two kinds of men:

1. Those who openly admit that they adore Tendulkar and
2. Those who do not openly admit that they adore Tendulkar.

Period.


The Little Master turns 36 today. In a career that spans across two decades, he has been the best 'coz no other icon has even come close to knowing the expectations of a billion people. He has been the best 'coz he has been a benchmark for batsmen around the world. He has been the best 'coz he is revered by people the world over. He has been the best 'coz this list is endless.

There are a very few occasions when a sportsperson becomes bigger than the game itself. Tendulkar, unknowingly, through sheer genius, has gone eons ahead of that.

He is the best 'coz, well, he simply is.

IPL


Just as I relish watching a masterpiece like The Shawshank Redemption, so do I get captivated by a Matrix Revolutions.


Just as I find bliss in classics like O. Henry, so do I enjoy a frivolous Five Point Someone.

Just as I cherish the nuances of Test cricket, so do I immerse myself in the pleasures of Twenty20.

Evenings, for the days to come, shall no longer be dull and boring. The IPL 2.0 shall finally get rolling this Saturday.

अतिथि डाक

Here is a guest post in the form of a poem by our super talented Tinni. Iss blog ki shobha ab aur bhi badh gayi. Thenkoo so much babes ;)


wings of poesy
soar into the sky
colours of the rainbow
enlighten even the night

blessed indeed are poets;
artists, lovers and friends

they may die, shrivel and wither
n still live through the gems they penned

oh how i wish to immortalize this life and times in rhyme
the verse is weak; the poet unknown
and yet i hope to raise the rhythm divine.

~ Tinni


After reading her poem, I got inspired and penned down one myself. Ekdum spontaneous on-the-spot types. So you guys have to now pick a winner out of the 2 poems. Here goes mine:

Twinkle twinkle little star,
How I wonder what you are,
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.

So go ahead and pick a winner. You can use parameters like originality, literary depth, blah blah, bleh bleh ;) And remember while choosing the poem, mine is the latter one. The 2nd poem. Nichu waala. The one 3 lines above ;)
