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

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.


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.

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 ;)

A new year resolution

Do not take credit/debit cards when going for Window shopping!

I had earlier mentioned my love for shopping. Its gotten a lil out of hand now. Owing to my heroics, species of the fairer sex are finding it difficult to keep pace. Malls and shopping complexes are running out of new stocks. And John Abraham is going to stop acting :P

I nevva make resolutions. None this year as well. Shall try to keep things simple. Do less of planning. (Most things don't go according to plan) Be wild n crazy. Act zany n wacky. coz after all, its better to surprise Life rather than letting Life surprise you. Whassay :)

Happy new year! aur Happy ko bhi Happy new year :D

The chosen one

In response to Stupidosaur's comment on the previous post:

Yes, the header pic was taken after I joined the IT industry :)

And lately I have been inspired by the Bolly guys getting various sized packs. Aamir survived on some 16-18 odd egg whites per day. I too am following suit when it comes to the diet. Me n my roomie hogged 18 eggs - whites, yolks, everything - in the form of omlets and egg bhurji for lunch!!

However when it comes to Aamir n me, there is one small difference. Aamir went for the eight packs. I am concentrating on just one pack ;)

PS: I think I will have to start doing some serious workout (read light jogging in the beautiful Bangalore weather) before people start rolling me over for games of football :(
