X'mas '09

8 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
After going to the Church  , we all headed to this restaurant called Mustard.
While we were going though the usual  "You say" game of deciding what is to be ordered , one my friend's suggested we'd play Dare & Stare.
 I was busy talking to Tez who was telling me some of the things Chetan Bhagat said in the speech in their coll yesterday itself.It was funny.
Like one was where he was asked  why he always had the couples in his novel making out before marriage to which he said that there are two types of couples - one who make out before marriage and one who make out after marriage and that his novels only contained the latter ones.
Quite simple , huh ? lol

Then he mentioned how he was once asked something on similar lines "Aapko ye sab shobha deta hai ?" to which he said " Han shobha toh mujhe hee degi na "
lol .. He cracked a lot of double meaning jokes.

Anyway , so the bottle hit my direction and I chose dare after much manipulation.
And what did they ask me to do ?
Take order for a large group of old-looking people sitting at the other end.
I refused.No amount of 'coward' remarks could make me do that.
how lame.I mean it wasn't that big a deal.I was threatened I'd be expelled from our recently made group that we I named Sizzlers.As if I could be expelled :P All jokes.And number of taunts + harmless insults.I actually didn't feel bad for me.
Then a friend of mine did it on by behalf and I excused myself by saying that she's a hostelite and quite used to such things.

I need to be sporty.That kept buzzing in my head.But then it wasn't important and it didn't matter.To hell with everyone , I'm never consciously  going to do anything stupid in a crowd.Although when everyone started telling me  their tales of real adventurous dares , I felt a bit guilty.
Its OK , ok ? All guilt absorbed by Chinese food.Amen

While commuting ..we played out the music loudly , pulled down the windows , sang as loudly as we could and danced like maniacs.I hadn't laughed so much in last one month or so as much I did yesterday.

I check the msg log and call duration each and every time I unlock my cellphone without any purpose.Sometimes I do it twice or thrice after I've spoken to someone or sent a text.I like to keep a track but 70% of the time I do so - is because I'm simply addicted!

Reading newspaper is must for me wherein it certainly doesn't matter what section of News I read , but I have to scan the front page + read the 3 cartoons on second page .Those are amusingly witty.Popeye is plain stupid but that's one thing which doesn't annoy me respite all the grammar tangles and the spelling loops.My day feels incomplete w/o it.And yes reading reviews on Sats is a must too.

No matter how cold it is - I cannot sleep w/o the fan on.
I'll put three blankets over me if required , but I won't ever turn off the fan.

I have a habit of asking "Where did you get that from?" every single time I see a friend/cousin in a b'ful outfit! I cannot resist asking that nor can I stop pestering until I am given a proper answer ! So many of the ones I know keep their shopping destinations a big secret.At the end , it wouldn't even matter to me because I never seem to make a plan 'Ah yes..I will go there now' . I just like to know what place on earth contains the good stuff since I'm almost always jinxed when it comes to shopping.
And not just in case of outfits - my jaws & vocal cords react spontaneously after seeing great shoes , bags , junk jewellery and watches too !

I laugh a little too much at times.Even when there's nothing funny about what is being said.On top of that ,  I'm quite a tubelight because I laugh a bit late.

Few ( selective ) people I meet or have met for a short while or have been with for a long time have a strange influence on me.I get a hangover of their style of speaking or body language.Not that I try copying them..but I involuntarily start talking like them , for a few mins to be precise.
Dunno what kind of rare IN-FLU-ENCE it is.

Whiter than White!

14 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
I saw Amavasya today ( ridiculous movie title translation I've heard in years ) ..Yes ..New moon - second of the twilight series.And I watched it even before I saw Twilight.

Lets begin the movie bashing.

Firstly , I wld personally write a mail to the make-up artist.The director's and the make up artist's point must be that vampires are supposed to look pale white.My point is - why do you need to do anything to make goras look goras when they are already pretty much goraa ??!!
A little bit of pale foundation would have been OK.Edward Cullen in the movie looked no less than a Joker.
My first and last impression.And a sad one on that.

Someone said to me that Jacob Black or Jake ( werewolf ) in the movie is handsome.
Are you kidding me ? Seriously..are you ?!?!
Yeah.. He was supposed to be handsome if you go by the book..but I don't think it was important to cast a really wolf lookalike guy.
Thankfully he was bearable after the hair cut and the show off of his chiseled hot body!

Bella Swan was digestible.I marked her expressions in particular scenes.She had to play an awfully drained out girl and she did it just fine.

But I don't like how Bella's character is sketched in the movie.Here she makes best friends with a werewolf and as soon as she finds a sister-vampire back into her life - tevaar hee badal gaye uske!
I overheard ppl laughing - kaam go gaya..bhaaga diya :P
They could have dealt with that much better.Like in the book.

If I had to choose a fav scene - it would be where Jake tries to avoid Bella and asks her to leave him.Its shot in rain.And was something where I felt like finally I'm glued in the movie.I was almost liking the one where Bella encounters Laurent , but sadly the scene's a bit messed up since its paced up.

Disappointed with Cullen.What the hell is wrong with the director ? Someone should request the director to read the novels properly and understand what the lovable Vampire is all about!
The movie couldn't have been any better.But Edward should have been.
I'm dreaded to watch Twilight now.It will be the horror show-of-disappointments.

* Of all the things - to watch a movie where vampires are referred as Pisaach is definitely a torture.Plus to watch movie with someone who again hadn't seen twilight NOR read the novel was a much more pain.I was more busy solving the confusion and guiding through than watching the movie.Grrrr!

Can you define ?

11 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
 And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything seems like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive

These are the lyrics of a song.And I can so fit them @ how I feel right now.
I'd been to my college few days back with some of my 11th 12th grade friends ( who were with me in the same coll back then ) And it felt weird - Not nostalgic or that sense of deja vu..since I rarely ever missed my coll -  but something strange.

Being together at a place with the same people I'd once been with - felt odd.
Like I said..I never missed my coll but these strange feelings were making me sappy and yet I did not cry.Not even after coming back home. 
And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming.

And although so far I've never really said that I 'enjoyed' my to-be-called-high-school-days , I cannot deny I had an amazing time.Only that I never wanted to agree that my coll & coll friends weren't that bad.. 
Or ( Can't fight ) the moment of truth in your lies

So many 'events' flashed by my eyes as I strolled in the corridor.Plus when my friend added..."Ah this our coll ?" I could actually feel myself virtually fainting.Yes this is dramatic.But you know how it they shoot in movies ? The scene where the camera angle rolls round or goes slow into a direction..showing shades of sepia or black and white and the sound of the voices are suppressed and echoed - the kind which you hear when your ears are blocked.I was experiencing almost the same.
 When everything seems like the movies

I remembered everything.
French class.Exams.Gossips.Scandals.Friends.Canteen! My debacles at chem lab.
Bunking practical for auditioning at Radio Mirchi where of course I never got selected. 
Tutions.And tution mates.Rain! Accident.
Oh so many things! Important or not.Just so many goddamn things!

Its amazing how brain works sometimes.It never lets you forget things that are going to bitterly twist the insides of your stomach and heart only to emotionally paralyze you for few hours.
It hurt me.All these things..
Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive

Heck.I cldn't belive I never looked back and thought about these things.It was as if I let it all go after waking up from a long dream.Not done!
Maybe now I understand why I feel odd every time  -
I see an empty campus ( meomory associated with my exam centre )
Or when I hear some particular song .( Memory associated with the times when I used to hear those songs)

Weird weird weird!
Can someone define something which is not nostalgia OR Deja Vu..but is very much inclusive of re-visiting old memories and at the same time not badly-missing-those-days / moments ..but still being hurt just by remembering them ?!

How we compare cell phones.

15 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
So  miss-looking-for-the-best-cell-phone-since-4-months once again pops up the question as to which cell should she buy ?

Her confusion is LG cookie Vs samsung star.Most of us are against LG.She's supporting LG.

The point discussed apart from  music , touch sensitivity and wi-fi was this  -

The point raised : look...the samsung's got this dice playing thing.Just shake the cell.

 Miss cell confused : So what ??...LG'S got snake and ladder too.Can you beat that ?


So this is what we have come to.Deciding which cell to buy on the basis of a snake and ladder game :P

I , by bad luck had the fevicol cake again .Kinda ruined the evening! + this time bb said it smelled like benadryl.And I had to agree - it really did.Yuck!


We watched the dance video of my relative's cousin where I danced which was the basis of my entire I-dance-bad  whining . I had the courage to watch myself dancing  and I reached to a conclusion that I'm not so bad :P It was just the way I looked that bothered me and still does.Less sleep had my cheeks swollen.My body system is in a bloody mess ! It happens often and it was making me look fat.I kept asking everyone if I look just the same even now ?! Thankfully..I don't  ( they said.. maybe to keep my heart )..respite gaining half the weight I had lost.

I bloody need to work out again.Nothing turns me off more than knowing I'm not fit to wear my fav clothes : or even the normal casual ones!

And yes..I'm getting all looks obsessed , yet again! Crap.
I find myself better off in the mirror than in the pics.
So I keep avoiding looking at my pictures.
But Mirror too is a cheater sometimes.
Crap crap crap!

Anyway , cutting all the crap apart..I spent a great evening yesterday.
Cell phone , dance , humor , my bro , cousins and of course the delicious food (minus the disaster cake)
All smiles I am :-)

Multi Avtar

8 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
Ok ..this is weird! I haven't written/posted since last 10 days which is the longest break I've had in updating my blog in last few months.

There's not much happening to mention as it is.

Been out with cousins for movie.
Had a mini get-together where we all talked non-stop.
Consoled my friend ..over some difficult to understand situation of hers.Painting morale for someone else which I don't myself have at the moment!
Its so contradictory to tell someone not to worry or think too much or feel low - when you yourself are going through the same - in a diff situation alltogether - but feelings remaining exactly that way.

I wasn't completely sure of the gyaan I gave to my friend who herself added "Mai paagal hoon" as a footnote after she explained me the complication going in her head.
I tried making sense or tried not losing my mind.Whichever.I tried.
And then I recd a msg - "Thx for your enduring words.Lucky to have a friend like you"
I did make sense , afterall!
That made my day - to make someone else's day!

But I have also been losing my mind.I'm wicked these days.

I felt like Big B had a point.I do have a multi-personality or something close to it.Maybe.

Or maybe I'm plain cinical to think of it.

But then ..Its terrible when I have enough proofs to prove my multi-Avatar.

And then I cry Because
> I feel heartless.
> Sometimes Because I THINK that my brother hates me ( lol but I FEEL my lil sibling loves me!)
> I see no direction in life.
> Am tired of begging people to help me out.

Amongst everything - I've realized Nobody is going to help me out anymore.I've to make a decision for myself.It could be as if jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire - but I should take a chance for I'll at least get to JUMP! lol
Or it could turn into something great.Which I'm hoping praying dying for.

P2 said to me quite teasingly that I pull out all my frustration over my blog.That made me laugh and yes it is true.But partly- because I do not vent out ALL of my frustration.Just in pieces.

Unique Chapter Cases

8 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
I had a good time today and in fact this entire week if I rewind back.
*Mom's supporting me to go out of town.She is in fact helping me cajole dad too.Its incredible! I was 100% sure that no matter's never going to let me go out and there was no point talking to her about it ( I had tried once a couple of months back ) but looks like my sudden interest in cooking , religiously appearing in kitchen & learning stuff w/o making faces is working like magic :P I still cannot believe mom is being so cool about this! And I also can't believe that I am actually enjoying cooking.Its easy! The problem with anything that appears easy to me is that I want to do so much in one day that which I wldn't otherwise for an entire year.I just cannot wait to learn to cook different cuisines! Mind blowing , on my part.I'm surprising myself a lot these days.

*I watched a good movie after a long time - 2012
When D-tune asked me how I found it , I said "Good good..the graphics were incredible.They could have done something with climax though...and you know.."
D-tune : You're talking about graphics ?? And you have a problem with the climax too ???

She only meant that I could answer the question in one simple word - Good or Bad.
But I cannot resist on giving a detailed account of how I find a movie :P
Actually..this is one of those things one should avoid asking me.
I remember I'd watched 300 and Awin asked me how I found it .My reply was "Oh well..Its very violent..Great though..I loved it..but you know..this and you know that.."
He too then joked/mocked/teased ( whichever of the three it was ) that why couldn't I simply answer good or bad ?? Watchable or not ??
Now How do I explain everyone that I simply suck at answering 'How was the movie?'
Even worse ..I find it difficult to tell my top most Fav movies ! I never have an answer for that :| Mind blowing! And all I was planning was to join a Film Institute :P They'll chase me out of there the moment I tell them I don't know what to answer to fav movie! Chapter case.

*As for today , I went out with Tez ..where a temple :P She had asked for some mannat relating to her health or exams and as far as I know you are never really supposed to tell what you've asked for in return of what as in the mannat , isn't it ?? I don't know much.All I was asked was to accompany her to temple.My focus majorly remained on the food.What we are going to eat and where.So although I insisted her on going to Bistro to have sizzlers ..we finally ended up in an okyaish restaurant just next to the Bistro.And then began the great journey of deciding what to order.I told her that we could still move out of there and go next and binge on sizzlers.But she said that since we have already taken seats and drank water , we sld order something.I thought..this girl thinks so much - so much for the restaurant owner/manager and waiters.How much was it going to matter if we walk out anyway ? Talk about being polite.

So then we ordered Tea.I first said Tea , then coffee and then tea again.After 15 mins..I asked her if it was better to order something here itself and not change our destination ? Both of us were confused.Both of us were OK with whatever the other one said.And so none of us could decide what to do.I found that entire confusion so funny :D Then finally , we both settled for the same place.As it is I didn't carry much cash and Bistro would have cost me 5 ccd cold coffees.
What we ordered next and ate has definitely turned into a sizzler in my stomach.South Indian ( Dosa ) + Amercian Choupsey followed by tea and then pani puri. What a combination! Mind blowing :P

But all this is nothing compared to the talks we had.I laughed crazily and I love it and miss it.While laughing ..I spilled the tea over me :P which only assured me that I drop or break things I get my hands on! Amazing! I do it as a ritual.
Ritual reminds me ..I asked her if she said/asked for something when she prayed in the temple and she gave me a look as if inquiring if I had been to a temple for the first time.Yes , she said and asked me Why , very skeptically.
And we have another chapter case.
I don't usually ask for anything.I go BLANK , I told her.

lol ..we must have laughed so much on that :D But its true..I really go blank.
I completely forget my sole purpose of praying - to transfer my list of wants and needs mentally and spiritually to the one who is listening.But its not like I don't have any recorded message playing in my head.
I join my hands , close of eyes and I chant 3-4 verses of everyday prayers almost 3-4 times.
lol...its not sounding funny now that I'm writing about it but when I told Tez about my praying techniques - She laughed like a maniac.And so did I.
I mean..seriously.What is it with me ? I'm obsessed with repeating verses.Simple ones.
"Tvame-va Mata" Or "Vakratund Mahakaya"
I have this whim that if I don't repeat those chants..I will be cursed.It happens automatically.I just cannot stop myself from being a tape recorder.And I don't mind it + I don't think its a problem to God if you go on saying the same verse again and again instead of practically praying for something.

I loved every bit of the time I spent today.Was fun.The best thing about Tez and my friendship is that we NEVER run out of things to talk about.When we used to go gym together , someone once said to me "both of you seem to be here only to work your JAWS out" :P
Sometimes we happen to discuss the same things if neither of us have anything fresh to mention but I never get bored , nor does she.
Its the same with D-tune and me.In fact , with D-tune I have a unique equation.Our tastes in reading , movies , songs are almost similar.Mind blowing :D
These two people have been helpful in keeping me Sane.Tankoo Tez and D-tune :P

Tu Jaane Na...

7 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
How could I miss mentioning this song ?? Its awesome! Also , its been pictured BEAUTIFULLY!

Its been shot in Turkey.The feel of the song increases ten folds with the video.Now this is the kind of thing I call 'superb' - Amazing choice of location , great angels ..a goddess like actress (Katrina Kaif looks gorgeous as always..but the point I wanted to make is that her outfit in the song is equally gorgeous :P ) , a smoking hot actor + a heart-tugging soul stirring song.
What more can you ask for a visual treat ?!

Kaise batayein..
Kyon tujhko chahein

Yaara bata na payee..

Batein dilo ki
dekho jo baki

ankhein tujhe samjhaye..

Tu Jaane Na..

The song has a Sufi touch to it , making it my fav.The lyrics are good too :)
And of course , I have resumed liking listening to Atif Aslam.

** Bubble got engaged.I'm so excited for her.No I guess I'm just excited about having another wedding in family :D Its gonna be a lot of fun!
I wish though..I could attend the luncheon party tomorrow.I really wanted to be there for her.
Don't wanna get melo dramatic.She doesn't need me at the moment. Nobody on earth who's just engaged needs anyone in their life till the craze settles to normality :P But she certainly wants me there!! I'm the first one to whom she broke the news of her engagement.

Argh! I feel a little bad.I've been extremely mean to her.And here..during the most happiest moment of her life - she's been cajoling me to no end to come down when she sld have actually spent that time in deciding what she has to wear :P
I thought I could make up for at least one of those mean times by attending the small function tomorrow.But I cannot go.Crap crap crap!
Just wishing I turn up for the formal engagement ceremony and of course the wedding!

I still cannot believe the girl who's been getting wedding proposals since she was 15 -is finally getting married!! :D On a funny note - I wonder what ppl are left to talk about , now that miss cynosure is going to tie the knot :P
Ankey's already getting the jitters."Its my no. after hers..damn!" haha! I couldn't stop laughing when she texted that.

And although I had unofficially taken an oath that I'm never going to dance on stage - I've decided to put that resolution on hold. I don't mind making a fool of myself again - its Bubble's wedding afterall.

My jeeju is very handsome , I heard.Bubble deserved someone very good looking as it is and everything else too seems to have fallen into place.Perfect!
Bubble gum! Congratulations ..very happy for you !

Ajab Gajab : Life and movie

9 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
Some things in life are so ajab gajab.
I'm not mad/ angry or upset with my friends for not understanding me when the least I want them to do is - understand, if not support.
But if there's anything that sucks even more - it is how I fail to explain.
And some times..its really very important to explain.Nobody's clairvoyant - not with emotions.

I cannot believe I have to face this situation yet again! The key to all these weird problems is with my parents.Man! They need to get liberal now.Its so annoying to be subdued with so many fucking restrictions.Or maybe just this very restriction which always proves to be a big hindrance in making friends.

Its not fair.I'm losing friends.I always did because of this in-house stupidity.Somehow..the feeling of having lost a friend doesn't bother me so much than the feeling of currently-losing-a-friend.

To top it all - My mom can get so unreasonable at times.Who am I talking to on phone ? What did I talk ?
What the hell! Why doesn't she simply ask me if I have any bf.I'll nicely tell her that I DON'T.She can ask me that a hundred times and I swear I won't answer back.But what's with ..who and why and what ??? Be clear cannot live with so many haunting questions.Just be direct in your words.

I cannot afford the feeling of friend abandonment.It costs me all my powers of keeping myself calm , collected , GOOD and positive which again isn't an easy earning for me.

Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani :

This one's not bad.No , actually its kinda good in spite of the stupidity here and there.
I'll always remember this movies for Ranbir Kapoor and specially for his dance act!
It was superb ! Made me laugh! But more than that..the act was so damn Creative and flamboyant + its amazing how he manged to do it so naturally.( Must watch !)
This dude has it all in his nerves / ..DNA! I'm quite in awe.*Admirer seal*
Ranbir's gonna go a long way.

The best small scene was where you hear a gunshot , followed by the song 'Race hai .. ' to which a character in the movie responds " ye ring tone change kar pehle"
( It will make you laugh when you actually see the scene and the background on which the dialogue fits )

lol..How do these ppl think of such things ?? Its all about timing and I so love the smartness!

Tp movie , btw.Eagerly looking forward to watching 2012!

I'd Surf ..rather in wind!

17 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
Surfing looks like a lot of fun.

I caught a glimpse of the surfing adventure on TV last night and wondered if it is something I might ever try.

The answer is NO.

It may be thirilling but it is equally scary.

It may also seem easy but my guess is - it isn't.

To me it looks like as if - 10 tigers are pouncing upon u...Volcano of waves wanting to hug you to death.

I'm scared of water.But more than that..I'm scared of drowning.Sick scared!

Worst of worse ..I don't know how to swim.

I'd choose skydiving , any day.

Fevicol & Jinx

14 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
I had this chocolate pastry 2 days back that had to be mentioned here because it tasted like Fevicol.
I have never tasted fevicol.But sometimes you just happen to figure out from the smell of an edible item how it must taste like.I somehow am able to 'imagine' the taste of other non-edible items too.

Fevicol's one of them.
It smells strong.It just easy to consider how it would taste like.

Now accordingly , I should have known what that choc cake would taste like ( going by the smell which again must be the smell of fevicol > > since it tasted like fevicol ) But that didn't work.It smelled heaven : just what normal choc cake/pastry must smell and taste like.
So I had it all but of course it tasted fevicol :|

I think I also know what a chalk tastes like.And same goes for sand.
The smell tells you so much.
When I was young , I used to not eat veggie , curries or whatever the healthy food stuff I was supposed to eat.And if I happened to be at a relative's place , I would smell the food before eating it.I wonder if I was a cat in my previous birth but that's ironical since I'm cat-o-phobic.So whatever I was and am..I smell food before eating , unconsciously I guess.Most of the times ..its just too tempting.
The smell of the food in itself has my stomach and tongue demons rolling , dancing :P apart from the Ravenous Rats jumping ;)
I somehow , don't find it odd.And I still like myself , even If I WAS a cat.


My friend VD used to always scold me for playing with my cell phone and she still does.
I would never let my cell phone rest in place.Flip it up and down , use it like an empty bottle and roll it round the table , drop it minimum 5 times a week somewhere or the other, etc.
I just have to do something to my cell phone.Now VD almost cursed me ..that I will break my cell into pieces if I continue making my cell dance to my tunes.
She loves her cell.I mean even I do but only to the limits of how a biscuit phone ( that's how Awin nicked my cell ) is to be loved.She keeps it like its a diamond ring.Has it laminated , always in cover and always neatly kept on the desk unlike me.
NOW..the jinx seems to have done its job , totally reverse.

Her cell was pieces :D I couldn't stop laughing when I first heard that.I actually wondered if laughing was the right thing since we were supposed to mourn for the death of her cell :P
But she couldn't hide her laughter either. In fact she was embarrassed while breaking the news to me.
So well the lesson is : Don't be super possessive about your cell phone.Let it breath , man! Give it space and mostly Make it DANCE! like I do :D

Since she always had the cell in the cover , the other day she didn't realize which side was sealed and bang on : the cell slipped off the open side , lol + it had to fell and crash with the edge of the glass table ..ultimately breaking the screen.Poor lamination charges :P
Her cell might get repaired.I hope it does.

Lesson 2 : Never curse or even imagine of something bad happening to somebody else.You never know , you see :P

Lil brat , 11 yr old , got a cell phone.
I was particularly concerned about this & quite against too.
But I don't have a say.
Spoil your kids!

So the brainy sweet lil brat chats to me online & tells me about his new cell , gives me the number & then texts me right then "How are you ?"
I had to tell him that we are already chatting there was no need for him to seperately text me and ask how I was.
But it was excitement of owning a cell phone that was driving him to text messages.

I logged off.He texts me after an hour
"You are sweet as a flower"

My first reaction was "WHAT?"
Second : I had to laugh.
Third , to text him back
"Thank you lil brat..I didn't know flowers are sweet :P"

Lil brat : Hahahahaha

:| Ok I need to teach him some chat protocols.Never do the 'hahahaha' Unless something is so insanely funny that it practically has you rolling on floor laughing.
But anyway..I'm sweet as a flower for now :P


Cute Littlest brat , 5 yr old.
Me : You don't like your sister [ me] , do you ?
CLB : I like you..wait..I'll tell how much
Me : mmhmm
CLB : I like you A LOT
..A LOT..
more than the Flower Pot #
Me : 1 > WHAT ???
2 > *Laughing*
3> What ? :|
CLB :'re my fav.More fav than the flower pot
Me :'re saying you love the flower pot ??
I had to ask that to ensure if the flower pot meant the world to him.It would be a fair deal then :P
CLB : No noo..I love you much much more than that.
Me : no no no..I'm asking if you like those flowers A LOT ?
CLB : Yes..Yellow's my fav color & I like those flowers
Me : Ok
CLB : But I like you more than that.

So between me & a flower pot , cute littlest brat would choose ME.


# By flower pot , he meant the yellow colored artificial flowers.
And yes ..he always has a 'measure' to tell me how much he loves me.Like usually he gives me a number : I like you 3000 crore & I like mom 5000 crore , lol.
Did I not mention he is cute ?

Anyway , at the moment :
I'm sweet as a flower And
I'm liked more than some artifical yellow colored flowers :D
Applaud please!

=> I cannot dance like no one's watching.Because even when I'm dancing alone - I look at myself into the mirror which means that I'm watched by someone and that makes me conscious.I just am not able to dance in front of the mirror and its bothering me.The second reason being that I just realized I don't dance so well.Dancing was one of those things I always held high about me and I'm quite shattered to know I'm not so good at it.
Saw the video of my cousin's wedding where I danced.I was terrible.I couldn't believe my hand moments were such a mess.
No wonder why set B of my cousins never force me to dance , lol.
However Set A cousins always drag me to dance and shower a lot of praises that explains why I over-estimated my dancing skills.

=> One of my close friends hops down to Mumbai every weekend & will continue hopping for few months which is making me feel bad.I told her how my weekends are gonna be dry to which she said her weekends are going to be extra dry - only studies.
And then I said "No! Away from home is Rain dance!" :D
I wonder why that didn't make her laugh because otherwise she laughs on every second thing I say , because otherwise we both laugh on every second damn thing.

=> Spilling cold water on face every now & then is refreshing.But brushing teeth in a smilar pattern can also make you feel extra fresh.Sometimes I happen to brush my teeth thrice a day.
Oh and I love how colgate tooth powder tastes.

=> I'm tired of keeping 4 different email accounts.Isn't there a way to merge them all ? Huh

=> Quenched my thrist or my thrist was quenched is the most overused phrase I've come across.Don't we have a substitute?

=> Without falling in love , I understand now what 'Don't change in love , let love change you' means.It basically hold for any kind of love.There's just a simple way to it : Don't frame how you want others to be.
Someone told me this long time back and I could never completely get the essence of it.I'm content that I do GET it now.
To add my theory on it : Save surprises in life.Because sometimes you meet people you never imagined and unknowingly you start fancying them even when those are not the kind you've ever framed in your mind - to be around with.

=> I have created a seperate blog to scribble more to avoid being judged.Its funny how this blog came into existance to be my outlet for expression and now I'm feeling the need to run away to a new place just so that I'm not read.My hideous dwelling is giving me a sense of freedom.There are some things thats cannot be left unexpressed and the kind that you don't want people who already know read.

=> I want to change my blog URL.The other day someone marked 'powerdrunk' is manly , lol.No wonder it scares a lot of people + I wonder why I ever chose that :|
And then I want my Set A cousins to read my blog too which means that some stuff from here needs to be edited , and some more to be shifted to my other blog.

=> I don't think I'll get over the remixed version of the song 'summer jam' ( which happens to be almost a decade old ) even by the time winter is gone.

=> If you haven't read Message Log 4 as yet >> its your loss :P

This is such a non hyper , non depressing post.Normal.I like myself for that.

I had to write this.I wanted to bash a movie since a long time ( just for fun ) and now that I've found the perfect victim..let me just sprinkle all the spices! :P
I'm talking about the movie BLUE.Let me just get to the points -

1> Kylie Minogue is wasted.She does have some dialogues in the movie reserved for her talk with Akki ..but god knows what that was!

2> 'Ciggy Wiggy' song lyrics are the most dumb lyrics on AR Rahman music.And I'm disappointed with Rahman's music!

3> There are so many bike stunts in the movie , I felt like I was watching dhoom 3 trailor.Liked one or two of the stunts.One thing is guaranteed - when there' s a chase going on - the bikers are on some unhabituated land with a railway track nearby AND they jump over the train no matter what ! Kinda sick of this scene.Its so usual now.Just so repetative!

4 > the music score in the beginning of this bike mania was similar to that of Tokyo Drift's.I'm not cent percent sure but I do feel so.In fact , they tried to copy the 'feel' of race just like it is in the Fast & Furious movies.

5> The story line is hopeless.The direction even worse.The editing : catastrophe.

6> The dialogues go haywire.There's no intellectual connection between anything that is said among the characters.

7> Lara Dutta is sizzling.Looks dazzling and so does Katrina Kaif but I feel bad for both of them since they are given roles which make you sigh.tch! Katrina still needs to do something about her accent!!

8> Now the most important thing..who's the casting director ?? I mean to hell with him/her! Why Sanjay Dutt of all the people ?? And why Zayed Khan ?? Both of them acted so dull as if they weren't paid.

> Akshay Kumar : I feel bad for him too.Such a wonderful actor ..what's up with him ??! ..Not his fault I guess...All blames pinned to the director who seems to be half-witted.

10> Do appreciate the underwater action but it doesn't bother you for a min.It all looked so easy - as if the sunken ship and just floated up or the sea level drained.

11> In short this 100 crore movie is not worth a penny! Don't bother watching it even for free.

12> And yeah..marine life : Watch Discovery or Nat Geo instead.They have some mind blowing treasure hunt stories :)

I saw the promos/trailors of London Dreams.God! Why do they have to tell you the entire story in short ?? Argh! Why do they kill the excitement with such lengthy trailors ? :(

I'll be lying if I say Diwali was Great but it was fine & fun.No complaints.No grumbling from my side.Its been too fast like always.And some muck-in-your-face moments just made it worse.There are such unimaginable characters around ! Some people are really sick.But then , I don't care.The problem is : its a disaster when some really close people have something very hurting to say.

Its getting too much for me to get over so many emotions at one single time.So many decisions.And so many comparisions.However , somehow I didn't feel that pang of guilt , rage or regret anytime.Maybe I'm just too tired - to react , to boil my blood over or to shed tears.

Anyway , Diwali : I socialized a little bit.Stepped into my neighbour's home which otherwise I wouldn't ever do.I mean most of them are useless or pathetic or DUMB! And then I'm not quite fond of anyone except my extended family.Family's family.Simply great ! Neighbours are neighbours - they spy , they gossip , they are never there for you for even a tiny help if required , and they are just not your family.Why would they care for you ?!

I do LIKE to interact with people , talk to them ; wanting to keep a sensible conversation going on but my neighbours are not sensible enough.I mostly feel like I'm surrounded by strangers.People seem so busy to respond to a smile.To say a hello once a while.Act so weird.Its pathetic.But anyway , not all of them are that way.There are FEW nice people too.And its always good to talk to them.

One of the reasons why the non sensible ones are categorized into that field is because of their patent dialogue : "Kitni baadi ho gayi!" As if I'm supposed to be 10 yrs old - forever!

I didn't fire crackers.I'm not crazy about it.I like watching people do that.I like watching the sky glitter.But I hate the noise.Some crackers sound good , others- most - are deafening!

I wonder why am not hyper with festivity.Why I'm not over excited.I haven't been whole-heartedly mentally PRESENT in last couple of days in any of the activities around the home.
I'm just not me.Not the hyper me.Not the normal me.Not the shy one.Not the sad one.Not having stupid crushes either.Just someone I haven't ever been.So lifeless.

Somewhere I know what's bothering me...

and ...

we are back to square one - Its bothering me , AGAIN.

I would have been able to keep the troubles at bay..had I figured a solution which I just don't see coming to me.Whirlwind of Trash!

* BB : Wanted to see Inglorious Bastards.

P2 : oh..I didn't hear of that movie.

BB : You just say..we are going for Inglorious beep beep.

And then , we actually laughed =) I love it when I laugh at something which isn't a 'joke' but timely funny.Love the moment.

Default equations

15 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]

Oversmart = Stupid
Have two dozen medals/certificates to show off ..and yeah that hell as might be 'intelligent' , but in the end if you're oversmart + weird , you are stupid.
Therefore , K - you suck!

I'm so glad I could say this after all these years.
I always thought it sucks when my opinion about you flips every now & then.I mean yes , EVERY time.
But I've figured it out ( finally ) that I'm not to be blamed of being fickle minded or of having varied opinions if you're a CHAMELEON!

M you suck too! Ek reason ho toh bataon ? You just suck.Without knowing you or knowing you little that I do , I can say so.
Because weird = weird.
Nobody can do much here!

This is the default list.
I'm gonna put more people in my list who suck so that I can chuck them out of my life.

I'm quite miserable these days but do not intend to make others around me miserable .Therefore I don't talk much.Not of my problems.Everyone has problems.And add mine to that..its like evergreen problems.Gum like.No solution.Life se chipki huyi.
Fevicol ka jod :P

Haha.I'm laughing right now which is good.Because when I intended to shower my misery on my blog - I was assuming it to be highly sad.
Maybe the chocolate fantasy I just had at ccd is making my day.
And also talking my heart out with T.
Feeling good momentarily.

STILL.I have to keep reminding myself that I don't have to feel bad with whatever it is.
With whoever it is.I have to tell myself to be composed.If not calm.
And I also have to scream to myself : not to get attached.Not again.For no reason :
Expectations I keep.It only sucks when my imagination gets 'pathetic'.I weave wonderful stories.That's where it gets pathetic , specially since none of that is going to be true .
So naive of me.

Anyway , penning this is such a liberation.

And I also have a theory on pampering :
It feels incredibly great - to be pampered.But don't pamper someone so much that they become habitual to it.Don't make it a habit for them.Because some day when ya stop , it hurts.It bloody hurts a lot.
I feel , its somewhere equivalent to betraying : when you stop.Untill then its probably heaven.
Therefore , Do not pamper much.Limits.
And if it is so..then for the being-pampered party , I have an advice : Don't pay much attention.
Know to keep all the heart-breaking bullets at a distance.
Resistance is necessary.

A4 size chit to cheat

16 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
Nothing beats the feeling of scoring good without studying!
It used to ..sometime back..make me feel not so great.Detached.As if it were plain luck.But NO..exam results are never luck dependent , not unless the checker is half-witted to give you marks for free or its an online exam where you mark intelligent flukes.

It happened with me in 10th exams results.I scored more than that I probably had solved & I was so happy that I all I did was kept wishing the checker all the goodness in life.
I must have said a dozen time "checker k muh mein ghee shakkar" which these days I replace with "xyz k muh mein pizza , sizzler , paneer tikka , chocolate cake : one by one"

The previously written as Red As tomato with embarrassment situation ; let me elaborate :
So it was a time pass exam.Term exam in 11th grade.
Physics paper.
I have always had the great privilege of being surrounded by the mosttttt dumb exam partners EVER..who btw , I know not why , would think I know EVERYTHING.
This time , we were made to sit randomly.Like we wished.
And so , beside me was the Professional expert at cheating.
She carried chits in each exam.
Now we had this 16 mark question which was a theorem & I KNEW the answer.But since she carried that page ( from the book ) which had the theorem on it , I delightedly took over.Can you imagine ? An almost A4 size chit to cheat from ??

I was carefully managing to take a look at the chit and then I have no idea how the invigilator figured out what I had.He walked slowly towards me.And ...and..I knew I'm having a heart attack.I was so nervous , all I could do was to calculate what is the next possible thing I could do ?

DISAPPEAR off the face of earth ??? : I wish!

He asked me , "Give that to me" And I looked at him BLANK faced.

I first gave him the question paper.I mean , what else could I do ?

Then I slid the chit in my answer sheet right in FRONT of him.

Guts :P

He looked daggers at me and said , "Not this.Give me THAT"

And then..I had to give up.I gave him the answer sheet with the chit inside it.He took the chit off , returned the answer sheet & WALKED AWAY.Didn't say a word more.

I was dancing in my head at this point , lol So relieved!

BUT..ALL heads were turned in my direction.And since I was sitting at one corner of the class - it just got worse.So that was emmmmbbaaarraaasssiiinnngggg.I was literally red in the face.And the professional cheater next to me was like.."oyeee! bach gayi ! "

I was like Why ? Why did it have to be me ? I mean here the girl who cheats in EVERY damn exam isn't caught even once ( what a record she carried :P ) & I..who was cheating at full scale for the first time - was to be caught cheating so badly.

But anyway , Invigilator k muh mein choc cake! Sach mein bach gayi!

You fight with your spoon to have the larger chunk of the choc cake which you are sharing with your friend.

When you are ridiculed by your near & dear ones.
Reaction : Love them , still.

Lesson : Relax! Time pass exam.Cheat smartly next time.And clear all myths

6] You know you are a music-crack-pot ..when..
You have sleepless nights because of the lyrics playing at the back of your mind.

Do I even need to mention when ?
Lesson : Deception point.Do not rely.

10] You must know that you're getting ridiculously hyper when
You speak nonsense at length = you speak things you actually don't believe in!
Lesson : Don't be over-yourself.

13] You must consider your instinct which is asking you to stop from doing something..when..
you are too nervous & shaky + you tell yourself you are right while being too skeptical about it.
Lesson : Always follow up with instincts.

14] You ought to know that your whacky obsessions do not count for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder..
like when you wash your hands again & again or check inbox every 10 mins in hope of a new email or etc , etc , etc.
Must you learn : OCD is anything you obsessively condition yourself to , which is painful and yet gives you pleasure.Tattooing , for example.

History : Evaporating

8 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
Yesterday I was watching the movie Gandhi on Fox History. It made me feel so bad that I couldn't remind myself the sequence of the Indian struggle against the British.
I mean that why we are taught history ?? That after being brought up in the land of some great leaders , kings et al , one cannot write 10 lines on the Indian Freedom Struggle :|
I really cannot.

The problem is history is my fav subject but they made me hate it in school because all we were required to do is mug it all up!
Is that how history should be learned ? No!
Why not such a wonderful subject interesting ?
I never studied about the French Revolution because it was omitted from our syllabus.Instead , we had more of Gandhi.Three yrs in a row or something.
And then back in couldn't just deal with being told about someone you had actually read enough about.

But I realize it now..that if we were taught a little methodically , interactively & in proper order..I would have been able to write the summary of the last century's history - world history.

I do this random exploration on my encyclopedia now & then.I was amazed to read the Roman history.That too wasn't in our syllabus :|
Not that..we needed to learn the history of every square inch place on the globe , but they should have included some of the European History.Its fascinating!
As a matter of fact , I didn't know who Julius Ceaser was until I got to know about him through English Literature.

As for the movie Gandhi - its wonderful how someone could brilliantly present the subject 2 decades back.
As for Gandhiji , I think we all have lot of myths about the iconic figure.I know so many of us who do not find Gandhi a great leader , who think he was one of the people behind the partition.
Maybe we all need to dig for some proper historical records.

They had series of documentaries played over on Fox yesterday.Just a while before the movie began , I happened to watch one such.
For the first time ever , I saw the rare clips of Ghandhiji's funeral.A large herd of people surrounding his dead body : screaming , crying at the top of their voice.

*I love watching these infotainment channels.

The toppings

13 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
I have to relate most of the happening in my life with food.
So here's the topping of my pizza - pizza being the dance/Navratri fest.
The cheese :
Two more days of dandiya! Sat & sun! Major refreshing crowd.
Expected people.Awaited people =)

Paneer :
Yes , I've had nothing more than paneer tikka or chilli paneer in last two days.
Its yum! And I had enough French Fries too which adds up to a lot of cals but dancing compensated for it.

The extra ketchup :
Danced till 3 in morning.P2 joined me.Awin sent P1 to bring us both back..but instead she herself joined :D
Then finally , P1 dragged me off the circle.I think if I'd have fought a little , I could have easily gone back & danced.

I basically stopped somewhere in the middle , when she caught hold of me.Argh! I was so mad at her because Awin was in no hurry to rush back to home.
So while we drove back - all of 'em asked me if Chocolate shake boosted my energy.
I joked & said its all about "Junoon" :P

Really! Its about that passion for fun.About not skipping a single second out in the moment of fun.
I also shot at P1 that next time onwards gonna make her & P2 have some energy capsules before we head off to dance.How could they just give up dancing when there was so much space & music ? I swear I could have danced for another three hours or more ..if I wanted to which I did.I wasn't tired at all.

Oh hey..the current pizza of my life brought me some fame :D
I popped up on Page 3 in Times along with my friend and this - the very next day after my ratings on looks :P
But that was majorly because of my friend.Did I not mention , she looked gorgeous that day ?! Oh yes she did , so standing next to her turned out to be so magnetizing :D
Frankly , it helps me give my school friends a little edge , you know :D

But name was typed wrong :|
I shouted twice but the photographer still never got it right ! Poor me!
P1 however said "Naam mein kya rakha hai yaar ? Tune hamara naam roshan kar di "

I was like yeah.Kabhi toh I appeared on newspaper - so what if its page 3 - unlike p1 & p2 who run into excellent marks in every exam & hence appear in newspapers.

:) I had fun.I enjoyed a lot.I danced a lot! And I wore super great clothes.Fashionable! :D
No fashion faux pas this time :)) I'm so glad I didn't end up in something that's not attractive or doesn't suit me.
My dress did stand out I feel.It was a combo of Indian western.I love it =)

Happy Dashera Folks!
Conquer the Ravana within (picked from a message , as usual :P )

Factory of tiny facts

15 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
My skin is oil factory.That's how someone once described it.Exaggerated off course but still apt!

A dancing oil factory is no good either.I'm sweating buckets and don't feel the need to go to gym as long as I am dancing which is definitely helping me burn calories.But there's something majorly wrong with my skin :| and my body too.I get tired too easily which is why I'm unable to dance much.And on top of that , my skin oil factory is troubling me helluva!

Anyway , in spite of having cramps in my foot & terrible pain in my leg muscles , I've been dancing like no one's watching yet still very much aware that I am sometimes watched by one of those 100 odd spectators.

Navratri is in full swing! My city is good at something after all :) We have great events organized by some people here.The best part about these navratri events is that..the cream crowd of the city comes under one roof in the best of their clothes! :D
I'm a lil disappointed with this yr's crowd though.Its not so ultra cool like it used to be any other time before but am past having crushes so it doesn't matter anyway :P

I had my moments too.One was where I met this girl from school ..who was a good friend of mine back then but I lost touch with her after school.So it was EXTREMELY nice when she called out for me so DELIGHTEDLY :) See..a genuine wish to talk to someone just comes out naturally.And when she said she had been trying to come to my place , I was even more thrilled.She's a great girl & been a cool friend.No pretenses.No show off attitude.Intelligent , good looking & sweet.
Felt good talking to her.

Then I met another school friend.No actually a lot of them.But this guy , H - I saw him after 5 years!! Although am quite sure now that guys have a pattern in greeting a girl ..they always begin with "Oh ?! I didn't recognize" even when its so obvious that they recognized you much earlier :|
So I was the one to initiate the talk.I crossed him while he was sitting with his folks and since I was too close to him , I called out his name.And then he STOOD & talked.Courtesy! I like it.I forgot what that recognizing part was anyway :P

Saw some similar faces.And the eyes of those similar faces were on my friend- the bday gal! She was looking way too pretty that day.

Its not fair.Its not fair that all good looking people are into my life.No ..its not fair that in my life , I have the best of the good looking people.And specially the best of my friends.

I need some attention yaar! :P Its just NOT fair !!!

I'm not jealous.I'm sad jealous - one where I cannot do much.
I don't wish that they looked just average.
All I want is - to match up to them - in looks.

Beauty lies in the eyes is bullshit.
Beauty is where beauty is! Not in the eyes.

I was freaked out about all this.My skin , my looks , my height!
I think I still am.
Next time ..I see more number of good looking people around - I'm sure I'll go into depression.

But anyway...Its Dance time for now.
Oh and..I have a dying urge to cuss M.He's acting so weird!

So you think you are Smart ?!

18 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
Next time you end up talking to a jerk or a smart person who suddenly talks nonsense or is too over smart for you to handle a little creative in firing them with taunts.

Don't say " Oh! How stupid are you?"

Or.."What crap ?! Don't you know ?"

Or "Stop being a jerk!"

Add some spice.

Sarcasm doesn't kill anyone.

I have three pick up liners for now ( Copied from somewhere I randomly read)

> Suppose there's a discussion going on some topic involving likes & dislikes & if that person is determined in forcing his/her likes on you whereas you are cent percent sure that your choice is anytime better.Try saying this.
..ok .. Maybe I should ask God to improve your taste.

> When someone is unnecessarily being stupid & nagging or acting like an irritating kid.
Are you naturally a jerk or do you practice being one daily ?

> Girls have a switch button of WIT.Really..sometimes the most intelligent ones talk rubbish.So give her a little hint -
Since when are you a blonde or how often do you flip between a blonde & a dudette ?

Accusing someone of being a jackass will do no good.Be a jack of smart sarcasm !
It ticks off like a timer bomb.Doesn't kill..just hurts the ego :D

Gimme some more liners.I'm not really good at witty sarcasm.

WATCH out!

14 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
How costly can costly get ??!
Tell me ..HOW much ?!

These are some of the world's most expensive watches as of today.

Wldn't you rather prefer owning a Ferrari or lets just say owning that in plurals ?

Shoes ? Diamond necklace ? Beach houses ? Super shopping ?! World tours ??

Its ridiculous ! I just wonder how ever anyone can invest so much money into a 'watch' :|

I mean ..yes most of us have a fetish for watches or shoes or diamonds in genral.And the riches have an expensive fetish for all of these.But at any rate..your car , house or even shoe wld come first come into notice than a diamond studded watch :|

And even if the watch comes into notice , who would believe its for 40 crore ??!

These are not even very beautiful.I've seen spectacularly beautiful watches from the brands Rolex , Rado , Tag Heur which were not so expensive.Yeah just about a hundred thousand bucks! lol..that's nothing compared to the ones here , isn't it ?

I'm saying as if I can buy any of those just-100-thousand ones.No I cannot.But its a digestible amount.

Fairly expensive.

But..40 CRORE ??!

I know..the billionaires can afford ( that's why such watches are made) , but if I were one..and given the fact that I'm a hardcore miser spendthrift ..I'd have a heart attack if I were asked to buy that.
Although I do find the 4 crore watch quite pretty!

PS : I watched Turtles Can Fly & it ignited my craze for movies ! So glad :))
Btw , the movie is a unique piece & one must watch it.Its not everyday you hear people applaud after a movie ends :)

Turtles Can fly

- I don't find maggie tasty anymore.My taste buds gave up on my fav instant food.I always thought I could never have enough of maggie.I was wrong.

- I too think that Atif Aslam cannot sing.Look its simple - a person can either sing or cannot sing.
There's nothing like a bad singer.
There's always a good singer , progressive singer & a brilliant singer.
So apart from Sunidhi Chauhan even I feel Atif cannot sing.I mean yes..his voice quality is great! But somehow I always tend to switch over to the next track if I'm listening to any of Atif's.There's a great deal of mutual 'aalap' or Rag or that 'aa aaa s s s' in all of his songs.He just has a melodious voice.So if he were talking , even then he would sound like he's trying to sing.These days it irks me to listen to his songs.I don't know why.

- I hate the fact that I'm not so hyper or excited about watching movies anymore.I haven't seen Kaminey yet & I of all the people , canceled watching it twice even when I could have easily gone! I'm not even using my manipulation skills to take off to watch Ice Age 3.

- My tally sir bugged me in the second lecture.He prolly thought I wasn't paying attention which is partly true.So he asked me stupid questions.

I was dumbstruck.
I really thought where in the world was I & why ?!
I was asked the similarities between Elephant & Rat! - in a tally class!!!
He was trying to give some parallel example but how ridiculous is that ?! And to top it all - when I wasn't replying & grinning - he said that if I won't answer , he'll mark me absent :|

My juniors are great , really! The answers I overheard were " Sir 2 eyes , 4 legs " + when I didn't reply in those 30 long seconds..the junior sitting next to me said "say Teeth"

I was so much in doubt whether I'm accidentally in class 2 !

Huh! I'm stuck with my juniors because of the batch timing problems & it sucks.It sucks even more when they ask me how an accounting entry is to be made :-| I'm so frozen even then ! But I loved it..when I answered something in the Excel class when nobody else could! :P It wasn't anything smart though..just a minute that only means that my juniors are dumb.

- For the very first time in my city , we are having the International Film Festival.Here too - my friend dragged me along.I wasn't excited about it at all which is weird! And I'm not even mad at her for asking me to watch the Bengali movie 'Jalsagar' .But I should have done my usual research on the movie before watching it.
Black & White movies shouldn't be called masterpiece! And who-so-ever does ..please let me know the movie is b&w ! I can watch anything 10 times..but not this - even once!
We somehow managed to bear the movie for 40 long minutes and then I knew I had to run or else I might collapse of boredom & the colorless screen.The guy sitting 2 seats next to me..asked me if I was scared watching the movie , lol

I said a rude 'NO'. So he started telling me that the song being sung in the movie is classical music.

As if I really didn't know what that is!

"Raag Bihag"

Oh thanks dude! I didn't know! Well..I actually didn't :(

I haven't touched my music notes in last 100 days , which is why everything that I learnt has evaporated!

- So overall I'm certainly so-not-me in all these events & instances.Movie , music,food..all of that which are my sphere of energy , crazy indescribable excitement - just lost some of its elements.

- I'm gonna watch turtles can fly which is an Iranian movie.I hope I make for it.(This time I did my research ...and the movie seems to be good , the classic good)

My city needs to be enthusiastic about movies.The crowd sucked!
I would want to relocate to some other place right now!

- Oh and..I have more number of drafts than posts in last two months.I have written so many things but don't feel like posting.I don't know why...& I hate those words "I don't know why"

Join the admirer club!

Success can be attributed to Luck.
Holding onto that success & carrying it forward is attributed to Hard Work.

Now that's the BEST one I've heard in a long time regarding Luck Vs Hard Work!
And that too coming from Shaahid Kapoor !

I admire that man more than I ever did.Yes yes yes..I love the chocolate boy he's been playing on screen.I love him generally for his cute looks & for his great acting + dance talents.
But I've never been a HUGE dying FAN of him or any celeb for that matter.
I'm mostly an admirer.

I love such people.Genuine.You can easily make out which one of 'em is!
Its pure co-incidence that I've been coming across Shahid's interviews & I really am paying attention to the things he says.
Few days back , when he was asked something related to Kareena ..I guess something referring to her making muddy comments on him ( I didn't hear the question properly ..he looked too cute in his glares & gelled hair for me to concentrate on anything else )
He very honestly ( I feel so ) , candidly & w/o being too modest said that he wished Kareena all the best for her life & sweetly added that 'people' must care & focus more about their work & life than giving statements.

I was like wow! This guy's got guts to call a spade , a spade! I just don't remember the exact words..maybe I will find them up soon..but the way he said it made sense! And I felt like giving Kareena two tight slaps for even thinking of another guy while the best damn guy was right next to him!! ( Nothing against her except for this one bloody fiasco she's made )

Poor her!
