"Horror"Scope ...

I just could not believe how on earth people give importance to those 12 cheque boxes which were drawn at the time of your birth ? I know that's always a debatable topic, some say its science and some say it’s pure mathematics and some like me says is bull sh**, because I neither liked science nor mathematics when I was in school (long long ago, so long ago). I still can't believe that our life and future is already plotted out in the form of "Horoscope" which is (unfortunately) is not in a readable format for most of us and we in-turn trust another human being to decipher that and let us know what the "hell" is there in that ...

I am sure there were lots of logical questions which "horror"scope or the people who believe in that cannot answer and if I state those questions here, then it will be more like re-inventing the wheel, so let me know go into that part of the story. I am stunned to see people giving up their hope in life just because someon…

Good Bye IPL Season 2 ...

Wow!! Wow!! Wow!! What an exciting finale it was between the Deccan Chargers and Royal Challengers Bangalore, my every prayer for a Bangalore's loss has been answered, there are many ways to take revenge on your opponent and we Chennaites took the revenge by praying hard for a Bangalore loss and what would GOD do when all the good hearts pray other than approving it ;-). Though initially our prayers were not heard loud and clear to the lord so he took off our one and only Gilly in the first over for a duck and there came our world crashing down ...

Deccan Chargers were shaken after the early loss of Gilly, but Gibbs made sure that he is gonna be there till the end and then make his bat do the talking. It was once again the old horse Kumble who came into the attack and removed two wickets in quick succession and once again road blocks for the Chargers, and I should say that I loved to see the replays again and again when Rahul Dravid dropped a sitter of Symonds at the slips and Sym…

It was a pretty cold morning and wind was cutting chill, I usually don't like to cover myself under my quilt, instead I prefer going on a morning walk, just to breathe those fresh air and enjoy the symphony of birds who would be singing at the best of their voices. I had a pretty bad day at work yesterday and my mind was pregnant with those thoughts, and I took a conscious decision of not to think about that anymore. I walked into the park where I usually do four of five rounds and will just admire the beauty of Mother Nature. It was 7:00 in the morning and the park was virtually empty as the weather was so cold that no one would actually want to venture out.

I just comforted myself by digging my hands right into the pockets of my jerkin and lighted a cigar, still I could not get over the issues that I am facing at the work place, but again, I said, let me not think about that anymore. Just few meters away, there was an iron bench on which a small young girl was sleeping with her t…

Airtel - Do Not Disturb ...

I really don’t understand what is the meaning of this DND (Do Not Disturb) facility which most of us have enrolled with our respective service provider. I am still getting calls from all those irritating banks to credit card companies to holiday resorts. I got so flared up one day when I got close to 7 calls from the same bank (ICICI) asking me for a personal loan, I called up Airtel with that same intense irritation and I caught hold of a call center girl, I know they are not the one at fault, but they have been paid to handle tough customers like me, the first thing I asked her was, can I talk to some top official of Airtel ...

She probably wouldn’t have expected such a first line from me, she said "Pardon Me, can you repeat" and this is how our conversation un-folded ...

ACC: Sorry Sir, can you repeat ...

Me: Dear, I just asked you if I can talk to any of the top management folk of Bharati, I know it would be a call center, but still can you provide me with some details ...

Love is not Blind ...

Sandhya just could not believe that she too was smitten by this LOVE bug, if she has to rewind her life 3 years back, she is one activist who is dead against love marriage and she has instrumented so many cases in her life where she has convinced her friends in not falling into that trap, but today her world is different, she just could not imagine a life without Vinay, this love too has its own default ingredients, both of them are from a different caste, both of them speak different languages at home, both the families are very orthodox and particular about horoscope etc. etc, but Sandhya is determined to convince her parents and get their nod for her love for life ...

It all happened when Sandhya met with an accident, yes; their love is just by accident. Sandhya was knocked down by a speeding truck and she was thrown out of her scooty, Vinay who was driving his brand new Honda City car which he took just minutes before from the showroom, it had those lovely beige interiors and even …

Concentration ...

Once upon a time somewhere inside the deep jungles of Africa a college student went for studying about a particular poisonous mushroom, he knew that he has to be there in that dense forest for months together and hence he prepared packing all the necessary things which he may need to make his stay comfortable in the forest. He went to the jungle and was roaming around to find out where he could find those mushrooms. While he was busy searching for that, just within few meters he found a small elephant which was standing with three legs and lifting one of its leg up in the air. He knew that he has to very careful, because his moves may upset that elephant and it would kill him to death ...

He cautiously approached that little elephant and he found out that there was a big thorn which got stuck on the middle of its foot and the elephant was crying in pain, he looked straight into its eyes and gave that elephant a comfort feel that he is there to help him and not to harm him, he slowly a…

What's Happening ...

Am I lost ? That is the question which I have been asking myself for more than a month now. I have absolutely no clue of what I wanted to do, it’s not that I have achieved a pinnacle in my life, I am seriously lost, that too after my folks moving in with me, I have absolutely nothing to do, no cooking, no cleaning, no need to take care of the household activities, maybe I am tuned to do all these on my own and when someone is there to take care of that, I really don't know what to do and how to spend my time. It’s good in a way that my office work is keeping me busy for 16 hours a day, but weekends are the ones which are really hard to push...

I know I have to get back to my routine, I have lots of things to blog, but something is stopping me to sit in front of my laptop and put them all as a post. There were few interesting things that happened since I posted my last post which is probably 3 weeks back. I happen to meet a person who is exactly like me, it’s not by looks, and it’s…
