Ravings of my moronic self...

Hello every1...bak to posting something!!!

No social commentary to put forward, no story to tell, no poem to puke out neither any tag to finish (actually, do have a couple of tags pending but am not feeling upto them yet)...so, the burning question is "what to write about?".....hmmm *deliberations* .......hmmmm *intense deliberations* .......hmmmmmm *desperate deliberations* .....damn!!!

Ok...let's just write about the world in general.
My humble (n absolutely unwarranted) take on the happenings of dear world.... *tongue-in-cheek*

### UPA n the LEFT headed for a divorce...well, how long can a marriage without carnal pleasures last:P (outside support n all, no scope for sex, u c)....yeah, yeah....i know that was disgustingly tasteless but allow me some leeway (for just being me:D)

### Inflation @ a record high of 11.42%, prime reason being the exorbitant rise in prices of crude oil....well, that was just waiting to happen. What else do u xpect with so much of oiling n buttering of corrupt politicians, evil bosses n eviller faculties of engineering colleges happening.

### The GJM have brought life to a standstill in the upper echelons of West Bengal, reason being their demand for talks leading to the formation of a new state Gorkhaland....actually, they have realised that's the only way they could ever form a government coz Bengal will always be RED.

### The Arushi murder case continues to haunt our imaginations n baffle the CBI....*may u get justice*

### Bill Gates has bid adieu to Microsoft Corporations n will now concentrate on doing philantrophic work...*lots of luck, buddy!*

### Jane Mcgrath, wife of ex-Aussie quickie Glenn Mcgrath, has departed from this world after a prolonged battle with breast cancer.....*R.I.P* Jane n all the other departed souls of this world.

### Big W has started and even b4 the 1st week draws to a close, Maria Sharapova has been knocked out....*absolute agony* ......of course, the same fate has befallen Djokovic, Roddick, Sania n Ivanovic but who the hell cares about their exits, anyway? Am still reeling from the shock of beloved Maria crashing out....*disturbed sigh* ....now, it's all upto u, Roger!!!

### It's a Germany vs Spain finale @ the Euro Cup....will be rooting whole-heartedly for the Spanish Armada to nail the Germans but am having that sinking feeling of the Germans coming through....For the record, I, abso-bloody-lutely hate the German football team....reason: haven't yet forgotten their crooked victory over Argentina in the 1990 World Cup Final.

### COLDPLAY have launched a new album "Viva La Vida".....caught a miniscule sneak peek on VH1 n it sounds promising. A friend called up to say that it's mind blowing n all but he borders on fanaticism sometimes, so i'll have to make sure b4 committing myself to a critique.

### Two women were asked to vacate the podium @ a Barack Obama function coz they were clad in the traditional "hijab"....yes, Obama did personally apologize to the women later on but that's besides the point. A pity really, coz u r allowed to wear whatever u choose....yes, forcible enforcement of the "hijab" needs to be condemned but so does the forcible enforcement of it's non-allowance.
Just an observation.....a Muslim woman willfully clad in the "hijab" is frowned upon and termed offensive by quite a few in the western world, yet the same world reveres its Catholic nuns who are willfully dressed in similar attires.

On the personal front, not much happening....life's mundane n meandering. Still awaiting my joining letter.....also awaiting the release of "Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na"....cooped up in my house staring either @ printed paper (read: newspapers/books) or glass monitors (read: idiot box/PC).....saw a movie the other day titled "The Green Mile" n just loved it.....planning a school re-union someday next week n hoping to hit off well with my old chums (been almost 7/8 years since I met some of the people xpected to b present thr)....btw....got my final semester results n yeah, I passed....so,I guess, am officially an engineer now *gulp*

Sample dis....A guy, on giving a jingoistically pro-woman statement, was asked by his friend " R u a feminist?"....On this d guy replied "No, but am neither a masculinist"......yes, yes....I know that was a P.J (P standing for pathetic) *sheepish grin*

Red Hot Song of The Moment: Bakhuda tumhi ho from the movie "Kismat Konnection" .....check it out here http://www.mp3pk.net/indian/kismat_konnection.html

Also, am sure most of u have noticed by now but for the benefit of those who have been enchantingly engrossed in my ravings, I, have a new template installed:D:D .....n yes, I am xpecting some praise on my xcellent choice (d xcellent part has been deemed by myself:D)
Newayz, enough ravings of my moronic self.....so long,till next time

C ya, buddyz!!!

Turning the corner...

He knew it. He finally knew it. Actually, he knew it since some time but was only now able to accept it. He was in love. Head over heels type. Always the one to scoff @ the "madly-in-love" breed of society, his heart had now throttled him straight into their domain. At a breakneck speed too, mind you! 38 days (yes, he had counted) back was when his heart had fluttered for the 1st time on seeing her. Well, actually he needed to thank Deep for his "she's damn beautiful" comment @ the lounge back then which fired up his senses to the extreme level (yes, a thank you card was in the offing for Deep).

And ever since that night @ the lounge he was a confused wreck. He started noticing her as he had never done before. Her small mannerisms became the staple of his consciousness. That twirling of a curl of her hair was something which now besotted him. Those freckles on her nose suddenly seemed so alluring. Her endless chatter seemed a lilting rhapsody to his ever willing ear drums. He now found her eyelashes beautiful, her pout started seeming sexy to him and her jaw bone became a piece of art. Her touch sent shivers down his spine; her laughter seemed a cacophony of jingling bells and wind chimes. That rolling of the eyes, those slight nudges to his shoulder, the waves of her hair, that curve of her lips, he noticed everything now. Yes, he was truly besotted by her...and madly in love.

He had to tell her. He could not and would not wait any longer. He wanted to share his feelings, wanted to make her his confidante in this exuberant joy of his, wanted to acknowledge his coming to senses and more than anything wanted desperately to hold her in his arms. He had wasted too much time shrouding his feelings behind the dogmas of realism and pragmatism. Best friends they had been for so long, it was time to effuse a new relationship. It was time to lift the veil, and lift it he would. It was time to pour out his feelings and desires, and pour out he would. There would finally be no more pretensions, only the truth.

It was 9 in the evening and knowing her routine as well as he did, he knew her to be @ her home. Hurriedly, he moved out of his house not wanting to waste even a single moment now. His happiness was just round the corner and he did not want to be in this lane of solitude any more. He wanted to encounter the bend and turn into the new lane of happiness.

Bouquet and champagne in hand, he rung her bell and waited for destiny to embrace him. He pictured her face turning a shocked expression as he knelt down before her, the shock turning to unbridled joy and happiness as he rolled out his pronouncement and finally the moment of bliss that he had awaited. He was shaken out of his reverie with the door opening only to flutter off into another trance @ her glance.

"My God Nik!!! I was just about to call you. How come you are here?", she rattled off in one breath. His reply died down in his throat when she shrieked unknowingly on viewing the bouquet and champagne..."Oh my, how did you know? Did Deep tell you beforehand? Damn it and here i was thinking of breaking the news to you myself." His enhancing confusion started to graduate to despair @ full throttle when Deep came into view behind her. "Hi Nik, budz u r ryt on time for the celebration...v just became a pair." An icy feeling gripped his senses, a nausea rose from the depths of his despair. Someone had just gone and yanked out feeling from within him as he became numb, uncomfortably numb. As she ushered him inside she repeated herself "But how did you know then?" He chanced a look towards her and their eyes met. In that instant he saw her, a picture of unbridled joy and happiness, basking in her moment of bliss which he had so wanted to be the forbearer of and he just shrugged "I just, knew!!!"

She had turned her corner but the path did not lead to him. His bend was not into another lane; rather he had just retraced his steps back to solitude. His path had been a full circle.

Jaane Na Kahan Woh Duniya Hai...

Kahin To...Kahin To
Hogi Woh
Duniya Jahan Tu Mere Saath Hai
Jahan Main...Jahan Tu
Aur Jahan
Bas Tere Mere Jazbaat Hai

Hogi Jahan Saba Teri
Palkon Ki Kirnon Mein
Lori Jahan Chand Ki
Sune Teri Baahon Mein

Jaane Na Kahan Woh Duniya Hai
Jaane Na Woh Hai Bhi Ya Nahin
Jahan Meri Zindagi Mujhse
Itni Khafa Nahin

Saansein Kho Gayi Hain Kiski Aahon Mein
Main Kho Gayi Hun Jaane Kiski Baahon Mein
Manzilon Se Raahein Dhundte Chali
Aur Kho Gayi Hai Manzil Kahin Raahon Mein

Kahin To...Kahin To
Hai Nasha
Teri Meri Har Mulaqat Mein
Honton Se Honton Ko
O Rehte Hain Hum Har Baat Pe

Kehti Hai Fiza Jahan
Teri Zameen Aasmaan
Kahan Hai Tu
Meri Hansi
Meri Khushi Meri Jaan

Jaane Na Kahan Woh Duniya Hai
Jaane Na Woh Hai Bhi Ya Nahin
Jahan Meri Zindagi Mujhse
Itni Khafa Nahin

Somewhere out there, there must be a world where we can be together, a world where there are no conditions on love, a world which is inhabited by just pure unconditional love, a world inhabited by just "us" and our unbridled emotions.
I don't know where such a world is.In fact, i'm not even sure whether it exists.Maybe it just exists in our dreams,maybe it's just a figment of my imagination which cannot bear a world without us together or maybe its pure delusional of me to think of such a place.I dont know any of these.All i know is that i am willing to find it,I am willing to scourge the sky and land,between and beneath, all through...only if you are just beside me.
This is a song of hope...hope of finding a world sans hate and anger, a world where there exists only love and peace.

N.B:- This is a song from the movie "JAANE TU YA JAANE NA". If u have not yet listened to it, then i urge you to do so @ the very earliest.

Nothing really.......

It’s been approximately a month since I officially finished college. What this has led to is me getting secluded within the confines of my sweet home having absolutely nothing to do. Of course, this pleasant Kolkata weather (scorching heat to endless drizzle) has a very definitive part in “my-staying-@-home” syndrome but that’s besides the point.

Well, to be very frank, it’s not that I really don’t have anything to do…I mean, yeah I finished college and exams are over and am waiting for my joining letter (god knows, when its going to come), but that’s not @ all proof enough that am ready to become a professional. Engineers, all over (especially the WBUT one’z) would quite agree with me that finishing college actually heralds the beginning of studies. So, all my subject books (C, C++, JAVA, DBMS n etc, etc) are crying out loud for me to have a glance @ them. I know I need to study but just don’t feel upto it yet… *damn* …. My bookshelf has been on the verge of puking out all its contents since eternity but it finally seems to be reaching a breaking point. That list of “movies-to-be-watched” is getting irritatingly long and dare I say , am not working on shortening its length. Juxtaposed along with these are quite a few “things-to-do” which I had sort of resolutioned to do @ the 1st arrival of free time. So, it actually is a myth well cultivated by my endless sessions of lazing around that I have nothing to do.

Newayz, enough of this nonsensical scribble…coming back to what’s happening in dear (22 year old) life…not much really!!!

  • Am still stuck up on college… *missin it terribly*
  • French open ended familiarly….Fedex getting pummelled (yet again) by Nadal and me ranting to my bro about Rafa being a “clay ka mendak” (as in kuaen ka mendak)…hope dis comment doesn’t bite me bak during Big W... *fingerz X* n top it off, Maria got knocked off in the pre-quarters…bottomline :-pretty fucked up Grand Slam
  • Watched “SARKAR RAJ” last Saturday… my verdict- *okies* ….1st half was good, lost a bit of zing post intermission.
  • Two of my bestest friends have got their joining letters (end-of-fun life warrants, really) and are off to Pune…*lots of luck to them in their endeavours, njoyyyy buddyz :)*
  • Read “THE 3 MISTAKES OF MY LIFE” yesterday… 1st Chetan Bhagat book I’ve read…nice read it was, I think chetan’s books are so popular coz they are almost fully in dialouge-mode, but that’s just my guess based on just one book and am no authority on critiquing books as well…so let that be.

Ok…now this is really becoming a nothing post, in fact, I am wondering whether its postable…but what the hell, its my space and am sure any of u who stumble across will not hold this one against me, considering all of u are such wonderful people, so I definitely can indulge :)

C ya buddyz….tc!!!
