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.

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 :(

All weddings are similar, but every marriage is different.
- John Berger

Today, I raise a toast. To the journey that was started 25 years ago. To 25 years of ups and downs, of blending and bonding, of agreeing and arguing. To 25 years of togetherness. Cheers.

In the years to come, if I can raise a child half as well as you Pa, and if I can love my child half as much as you Ma, I would be very very proud of myself.

No matter how much I grow up, I shall always be your lil boy. Wishing you both a glittering happy anniversary. Love you both.

Build a Titanic.

Make sure there are no lifeboats on board.

Lock Mr. X* in one of the rooms. Preferably in a room that is farthest from the deck.

Send the key of that room in an unmanned spacecraft to the moon. Mars would be even better.

Set the ship on sail.

Have an automated steering system which can maneuver the ship towards the biggest iceberg in the ocean.

This ultra modern hi-fi steering system should also avoid the ship from being in the vicinity of any other ships which can come to the rescue.

If everything goes according to plan, mission accomplished. The world shall live in peace.


* X = John Abraham.

You will be able to empathize with me if you happen to watch a movie called No smoking.

"He who thought money was everything certainly never had any friends..."

Two wonderful bloggers Sarath and HP were brave enough to publicly admit that I am a friend of theirs. Thank u guys. Muaahhhh :)

The tag rules include nominating 5 other blogs with the award. But that's just not possible. I mean just 5! Come on!! Instead I want to share this award with all my dear readers. May we indeed remain friends forever. And may the madness never stop :)

This tag also has a Quotations Tag where one has to write one's favorite quotes. Before writing that, let me tell you something about HP:

She is a F.R.I.E.N.D.S fanatic. She loves Calvin and Hobbes. She is very good at multitasking. She is a very good photographer. She is a Cancerian.

Bottom line: She is a she.

Now as for the quotes, I could not recollect many. Below are some of the few that came to my mind:

"John, on your death bed, you will not wish you had spent more time in office."
- The Monk who sold his Ferrari.

"It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."
- Albus Dumbledore

"A man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man."
- The Godfather

"I'm going for second," he said. "Today we went to the moon and saw the astronaut"
- The cyclist Beloki on Lance Armstrong in Every Second Counts

"When we talk about the poor, so often it is talk about getting them off the streets or getting them a job, so they don't starve. But we never talk about getting excellence for the poor."
- The World is Flat

I tag the following people with the Quotations Tag:

Sayesha - who better than to tag an editor ;)
Abhinav - dude, get the comp working fast. Or I'll send Arnie to get you back :D
Bhai with chai - please do not include any parser/lex related quotes :P
Homer - you need to post something on the blog alright Ms India ;)
Think tank - this tag might help with the writer's block

All right! So my hide and seek in Blogville has hurt the sentiments of Blogger. All of a sudden, it has stopped sending comments made on my blog and other follow up comments from other's blogs to my email id. Pretty cool eh..

So lemme ask. Have any of you guys faced this before or is it just lucky me who is The Chosen One?

PS: Most of you must be aware that Ganguly will retire at the end of the on going test match. I do have my farewell post ready for him. But don't worry. All you non-cricket-crazy people will be spared the doze of another cricket post. Only momentarily though :P :P :P

The high flyer

I think I have primarily two split personalities. One, the average human being who behaves normally and follows blog etiquettes. And the other, the sports freak who at times gets too nostalgic and romantic about his favorite game. Today, the latter has taken over.

"..although I am still trying to find out how I can bowl legspin"
- Anil Kumble

They criticized him coz he could not turn the ball. He ended up taking 619 test wickets!

Yes, for the record, Kumble did not spin the ball. But with his high arm action, he extracted bounce which made batsmen dance to his tune on dusty Indian tracks. Also, Kumble had pace. (I mean his quicker delivery was faster than Prasad's slower delivery; or at times even faster than Prasad's normal delivery ;) ) Pace, which batsmen were not accusotmed to from a spinner. And most importantly, Kumble thrived on the age old philosophy of line n length. Mc'grath mastered it in pace. Kumble perfected it in spin.
When it came to Kumble, perseverance was the word. He was always probing on and around that off stump. And every now and then he used to slip in that fast straighter one. Invariably the batsman was trapped in front. The trademark Kumble dismissal. No wonder he holds the record for the most lbw dismissals. 156 to be precise!

Facts and figures apart, Kumble always gave his cent percent. He was alwasys the fighter. One relates to the word fighter and the mind immediately rushes back to Antigua 2002. A dead track. A broken jaw. A bandaged face. He walked onto the field like a gladiator marching onto a battlefield. Bowling with unbearable pain, he dismissed the Prince of Barbados.. Lara became part of a legend that will be passed on to generation after generation. If my grandchildren ever ask me to pick one cricketing instance that made me proud, it will easily be that moment.

Kumble has given so many such memories to cricket lovers like me. He has easily been India's biggest matchwinner at home. True, tracks were suited for spin bowling. But one still needed someone to go out there and do the job. Kumble did that with ease, more so of as a daily duty affair.

It has been an honour watching him play all these years. A champion cricketer. A champion person.

Adios Jumbo. A salute is all a mere mortal like me can offer.

1.. 2.. 3.. Cha-cha-cha

surpasses another.


..and then goes on to score 50 fifties.


..and then goes on to become the first batsman ever to score 12,000 runs in Tests.

Dear Sachin,

Thank you for all the years of blissful batsmanship. Thank you for all the sublime square cuts and the cover drives.
Thank you for all the blazing back-foot cover drives. Thank you for all the upper cuts and the late cuts. Thank you for all the audacious pulls and hooks. Thank you for all the sweeps and slog sweeps. Thank you for all the innovative reverse sweeps and paddle sweeps. Thank you for all the deft flicks and nudges. And ofcourse, thank you for all the signature straight drives.

It has always been a pleasure watching you bat. And it always will be.

Yours truly,

The Cricket Lover

Kabhi aisa lagta hai

I was tagged by Express and may I say that I have moved at a very slow pace to do the tag. I wonder why she asked in her post if I do tags. Yepp I do. The proof is here, here and here. In fact I love to do tag posts :)

The rules:

1. Put your music player on Shuffle mode
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer
3. Write the song name no matter what (even if the world comes to know that I keep Himesh Reshamiya songs on my PC ? :D)
4. After you've answered all of the questions, tag 5 other people and let them know they've been tagged.

Tu mere saamne, main tere saamne, tujhko dekhu ke pyaar karu.. (Yeah right!! Like I have no other job. Haan agar yeh niche waali kudi saamne ho to bindaas bolega. Baar baar bolega)

Yes. She is damn cute. Period.

Sacrifice - Elton John

Summer of 69 - Bryan Adams (..those really were the days)

Ik din ayega - Jal (pata nahi kab aayega woh din)

Kabhi aana tu meri gali - Euphoria (hoodi baba. Don't get me wrong. I have no malicious intentions)

Lamhay - Jal (I wonder what I would do without Jal, Strings, Junoon, Parikrama..)

Yaaron - K.K (..dosti badi hi haseen hai, yeh na ho to kya phir bolo yeh zindagi hai.. Its almost like the hindi parallel of Remembrants I'll be there for you..)

Boulevard of broken dreams - Greenday (The guitar. Ossum)

WHAT IS 2+2?
Talli ho gayi (kisi ne talli ho ke hi yeh question daala hoga)

Woh chali woh chali mere pyaar ki kali (Haha. Don't run away dude. I love you, but only as a friend, in appropriate amounts, as permitted by the law)

Rock on (..dil kya kehta hai mera kya main bataun, tum yeh samjhoge shayad main pagal hun)

Bhool bhoolaiya :)

XL ki kudiyan - bodhiTree (What the heck!! Reminds me of Chandler's "If I were a guy..")

Pappu can't dance saala (Yes I can beat Chandler when it comes to the dance floor)

Tokyo Drift (?!!?)

Maa tujhe salaam - A R Rahman (aur Rahman ko mera salaam)

Jame raho - Taare Zameen par (Hahahaha)

Zara zara behekta hain - RHTDM (Another one of my favorites. Such simple yet beautiful lyrics.
..yun hi baras baras kaali ghata barse,
hum yaar bheeng jaaye is chahat ki baarish mein,
meri khuli khuli lato ko suljhaye tu apni ungliyon se,
main to hun issi khwaish mein..)

Pehli nazar mein - Race

Roobaroo - Rang de Basanti (Rahman magic again)

Kabhi aisa lagta hai - Lucky Ali (..dil mein ek raaz hai jisse kehna chahun par main keh paun na.. I love Lucky's voice.. )

Jaane tu meri kya hain - Jaane tu ya jaane na

Wohkay. Now the rules ask me to tag other fellas. But I am in a fix coz this tag has been around Blogville for quite some time. So in all probability I might end up tagging someone who has already done the tag. (A thought did strike me to visit all my feed reader blogs and go through the older posts but then why enlighten the world about my joblessness ;) So if you have not done this tag, please lemme know* in the comments section.)

* If you read this post, and if you have not done the tag, and if you run away without commenting, I will come to know. I have my contacts. Muhahahah :D
Update: I have found my bakras :P :P I tag the following people:

Day 38 (i)

Bengaluru, India. August 24, 2008
11:51 am

Woke up at 8. Brushed teeth. With Colgate. Went for tea. Went walking. Walked with the help of legs. Reached restaurant. Was very exhausting. Ordered tea. 7 rs. Drank tea. Nice. Came back to room. Got ready. Wore clothes. Reached office. At 11:00 am. Working. And blogging. Can't stay away from you all for long.

What!! You don't seem to be enjoying this post. Well, I just thought to try out the Big B style of blogging. With all due respect sir, please give people like me some breathing space between your posts. It takes him less time to put up a post than it takes China to win a gold medal at the Olympics. Aah.. If only there was a medal for blogging. And India would have bagged one more :D

Oh! In case you were wondering about the post title, it is also inspired from Mr. B's blog. You see the posts are numbered as Day 1,2,3,... And in case there is more than one post in a day which happens very very often, it is posted as Day x (i),(ii),(iii),...

This post has been named Day 38 since 38 is the number of days I have managed to live all alone. Roomie had gone phoreignwa and has returned today. And today happens to be his Happy Budday. So here's wishing you a very happy Happy Budday buddy.

Got to go now. For lunch. Will eat Punjabi. Roti sabji. Paneer sabji n tandoor roti.

More later,

The Reality is *beep beep beep*

Q. Who is the most hard working person at MTV?
c)The person with his hand on the beeper
Here's one more:

Q. Name a 4 letter word that starts with 'F', ends with 'K', and if you can't get one you can use your hands.
A. Fork

What!! You thought I was referring to 'The F word'. Of course not. I refrain from the use of such foul words on this blog. One has to maintain decency. After all, Abhishek-Aishwarya ke hone waale bachhe bhi yeh blog padhte hai :P

But seriously, I cannot digest the appetite of these Reality contestants for The F word. Do none of them have a vocabulary better than a Panchvi pass so that they don't have to resort to use The F word in every sentence. Didn't the contestants learn in their schooling grammar that there are only 3 articles in the English language. And that the usage of The F word should not be synonymous with those of articles.

And whats with all the judges in these reality shows. While some of them are trying to imitate the likes of Simon Cowell, the rest are busy fighting with each other probably trying to convince Ekkkta to cast them in her latest venture, Mahabharata. The judges of Comedy circus are the only ones that seem to be behaving on the saner side. And the show is also pretty good. Good light hearted comedy with lots of variety.

Mere favorite judge is Javed Akhtar saab. Being such an accomplished writer himself, he uses such high level language while giving feedback ke contestants ko samajh mein hi nahi aata ki taarif kar rahe hai ya vaat laga rahe hai. The bewildered look on their faces is truly priceless :D

So while on the discussion of reality shows, let me ask what has been your all time favorite reality show? Mine remains The Apprentice. Whats yours?

And before ending the post, I suggest the following title track for MTV Roadies 6.0 - the game goes alien!! I think its pretty apt :)

Doston mein baitha main sutta pi raha
Abba ne mujhe sutta peete dekh liya
Ghar jab pahuncha to danda ho gaya
B*beep* sutta, sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, mujhe sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, mujhe sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, sutta na mila.

College mein gaya mujhe pyaar ho gaya,
Usne bhi mujhse mera sutta chheen liya
Sadkon pe ghooma main tanha reh gaya
B*beep* sutta, sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, mujhe sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, mujhe sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, sutta na mila.

Shaadi hui main husband ban gaya
Raat bhar *beep* main *beep* *beep* *beep* gaya
Khushiyon ki khatir mera sutta chheen gaya
B*beep* sutta.

B*beep* sutta, mujhe sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, mujhe sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, sutta na mila.

*beeeep* *beeeep*, *beep* *beep* *beep* *beep*.
*beeeep* *beeeep*, *beep* *beep* *beep* *beep*.
*beeeep* *beeeep*, *beep* *beep* *beep* *beep*.
*beeeep* *beeeep*, *beep* *beep* *beep* *beep*.

Main aisa kyon hoon

Here is the Unspectacular Quirk tag:
  1. Link the person who tagged you.
  2. Mention the rules on your blog.
  3. Tell 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
  4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them.
  5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger's blogs, letting them know that they have been tagged.
While I was having my cup of tea, Bhai with chai left a comment on my blog informing me that I was tagged and Trinaa who keeps things simple decided to complicate the already cluttered blogger database. Thank you both for tagging yours truly :)

I tag those:
  • who have not tagged me before
  • whom I have not tagged before
  • who have not already done the tag
Think tank
(names are in ascending order of the blogger name lengths)

I cannot concentrate much in the evenings. So in school/college during exam times, I used to sleep real early, say 8 or 9 and wake up at 1 or 2 in the night. And I could not start studying before having tea, followed by taking a bath. Yes, a bath at that time in the night.

Its not an easy job being my roomie. I need to sleep with the fan on. No matter how cold it is.

I have 2 modes of shopping: On-the-spot-spontaneous-shopping and the other overly-planned-time-consuming-shopping where I will go and check out every shop in and around. The wife's not going to do much complaining I guess.

You will not find any tangled wires around me. I like to have things straight n simple.


Thank heavens to those people who put the T9 dictionary in mobile phones. I jus dn gt d kewl sms lingo. K den. Chao til d nxt pst :)

*except with really really close ones

Yeh to gaya!

Oh no!! It is very sad. But then some things happen. Not everything is in our hands. Destiny plays its role too. Fate and time took their toll on him. He has lost his senses. Nobody can help him now.

THE adoption letter: Classic Joey

Season 10. Episode 5: The One Where Rachel's Sister Babysits.
Script courtesy http://www.livesinabox.com/friends/

Monica: Hey Rach, the adoption agency needs letters of recommendation and we were wondering if you would write one for us.

Rachel: Of course, I'd be honored!

Chandler: Thanks!

Monica: Thank you!

(Joey looks at them, disappointed about their decision)

Joey: U-U-Um, I think there's been an oversight.

Chandler: Joey, we would've asked you, we just thought you wouldn't be interested.

Monica: Yeah, it's just we don't think of you as really being so much "with the words".

Joey: Whoo-weh hey weh-hey whoo hey!!

Monica: Clearly we were wrong.

Joey: I gotta a lot of nice stuff to say about you guys, ok? And I know how much you wanna have a baby, you know, and I would love to help you get one.

Monica: You know what? Then, Joey, we want you to do it.

Joey: Thank you! Alright, let me see how I'm gonna start... "Dear baby adoption decider people..."

Chandler: So excited about your letter!


Ross: What... what you working on?

Joey: (using a laptop) Oh, Monica and Chandler's recommendation. I want it to sound smart but.. I don't know any big words or anything, so...

Ross: Why don't you use your Thesaurus?

Joey: What did I just say?

Ross: Watch. (he takes the laptop) Here, you ehm... You highlight the word you want to change.
Go under Tools and the Thesaurus generates... 'gives'... 'gives' a whole list of choices. You can pick the word that sounds smartest.

Joey: Oh my God, that's great! I'm smart!! No, no, I'm... (he uses the Thesaurus) "brainy, bright, clever", I love this thing! Look out ladies, Joey Tribbiani's got the whole package!!


Joey: Hey, finished my recommendation. (he hands it over to Chandler) Here. And I think you’ll be very, very happy. It’s the longest I ever spent on a computer without looking at porn.

Chandler: (reading) I don’t... uh... understand.

Joey: (sounding very proud of himself) Some of the words are a little too sophisticated for ya?

Monica: (also reading it) It doesn’t make any sense.

Joey: Of course it does! It’s smart! I used the the-saurus!

Chandler: On every word?

Joey: Yep!

Monica: Alright, what was this sentence originally? (shows the sentence to Joey)

Joey: Oh, ‘They are warm, nice, people with big hearts’.

Chandler: And that became ‘they are humid prepossessing Homo Sapiens with full sized aortic pumps...?

Joey: Yeah, yeah and hey, I really mean it, dude.

Monica: Hey Joey, I don’t think we can use this.

Joey: Why not?

Monica: Well, because you signed it baby kangaroo Tribbiani (Joey makes a 'and-what’s-wrong-with-that' look). Hey, why don’t you stop worrying about sounding smart and just be yourself!

Chandler: You know what? You don’t need a thesaurus, just write from here, (points at his own heart) your full sized aortic pump.

Symonds the cutest

Some days back, I saw the movie 10,000 BC. It was an ok-types timepass movie. All the actors had scary makeup though, trying to generate a feel of the pre-historic era. There was this young boy who seemed like a look alike of Andrew Symonds. And apparently, he looked the cutest.

That is Andrew Symonds. So you can imagine how scary the others would have looked :D

Stay safe

I live in Bangalore. We all employees received the following mail few minutes back:

Dear all,

We have just received information that there are communal disturbances in the city. As a precautionary measure, you are requested to leave the office immediately.

In case there is any emergency work, the same can be rescheduled.

So all you out there who happen to be reading this and are in Bangalore, please stay safe. Also pass on the message to friends/family.

New life mantra

For quite some time, my life mantra was: LIVE life, don't analyze it.

But I observed and analyzed(thats where the mantra is nullified) that I was not able to follow it. So I have come up with a newer, easier life mantra:

"Learn to laugh at yourself; and the world cannot make fun of you."

And the best side effect of following this mantra is that one can never run short of laughter. And, laughter is the best medicine :D

Elephanta island, Elephanta caves

During my last trip home/Mumbai, I visited Elephanta caves. The trip started from the Gateway of India, from where we took a ferry.

Parde mein rehne do, parda na uthao...

One can see curtain like things hanging down on the right side of the Gateway of India. Thats coz renovation work was going on.

The 3rd from right was our ferry

Parking lot! There were other lots of ferries awaiting their turns

There were other cool n fancy James Bond-type boats too

October 12, 1492 was when Columbus discovered Amrica. This is the photo of the ship he sailed on. Yes, I am serious. See, it even has the name Columbus written on it(enlarge the pic). What more proof do you want :D

We came across this really huge ship. It had a No Smoking sign on the deck. Dunno why..

The side view of the huge ship

It took us about 30-40 minutes to reach the Elephanta island. A drop-point has been made for the ferry. Its a 10 min walk from the drop-point to the main island area. Or if someone is too lazy or acting too sissy like me coz of the sun, one can take the toy-train.

This toy train was also used in the Bollywood flick 'One Two Three' (Advisable not to watch the movie if you have not heard of it. Somethings are better left unseen :) )

This is where the main island area starts. Quite a few stalls for snacks, cold drinks were there.

This is the photo with appropriate explanations. Enlarge the pic for better understanding.

We had to climb a lot of steep steps to reach the caves. On the way, we saw some of these creatures:

I don't know what these birds are

A chweet lil baby monkey wrapped by her not-so-chweet mother monkey

A few more monkeys

Another monkey doing some monkeygiri

Inside the Elephanta caves

Phoreigner taking photus

Carvings inside the caves. Quite a few were broken

More carvings

A grand sculpture

A pic with mom-dad in front of the sculpture. Pretty huge.

There are about 5 caves on the island. Following are pics of other caves

The mouth of the cave

Inside the cave.

Me, posing in front of one of the caves

Find me if you can!

We were really exhausted after all the cave-seeing in the scorching heat. We decided to eat at the MTDC restaurant on the island. The food was very ok-types. Dosas seemed the safest bet. Mom was a little disappointed that I had to eat dosa-idlis there too. coz I eat it almost everyday in namma Bengaluru.

The view from the hotel was lovely.

On our way back, we saw boats lined in a row.

Notice the different flags on the boats.

That was one huge ship!

The Gateway and the Taj hotel

Me, the Gateway and the Taj hotel

Back to safer lands. Thats the Tendulkar's on the right side in the pic. Gotta dine there the next time I go to Mumbai.

PS: Formatting this post was real irritating.
