What it can do!

Actually this is in dedication to a friend of mine, as i had promised him. I may not do enough justice, but nevertheless, I'll  try.

' There are two kinds of guys, to my knowledge. The ones who yearn to find their soul mate and the others who leave it to the hands of time. People who know me, know which side of the coin i represent. A very close friend of mine, belonged to the latter type.  But he wasn’t one who hated the opposite sex. He did have his moments in school. But he never spent 90 % of his time talking about a girl/girls. I wouldn’t have bet my money on him changing himself over time. But that is what that 4 letter word is capable of , right! It makes the impossible, happen. Actually i don’t know whether something can be called ‘that’ at this age but knowing my friend, i think i should go by his word. He has been let down by her in all possible manner, but this guy is hands up for the phase  ‘keep trying’.  Now that i come to think of it,i am actually reminded of the character ‘Jacob Black’ from the twilight series when i think of what he’s going through. I only wish he succeeds in enduring this ordeal..Because if he doesn’t, i can see him getting hurt beyond imagination.’

Life and the Ride.

The road was almost empty. I could feel the urge to drive her crazy! No offence, but am referring to my bike. The blood was rushing into my forearms asking me to open throttle to the maximum. It was actually a fly over i was riding on,so the wind wouldn’t stop me from wanting to do the same. But i decided to take it slow. I am always glad when i am in some place which can be considered as a vantage point to its surroundings. And i never really like it when i can feel my bike strain under the acceleration i give it. So there i was,going in the optimum speed that she loved moving in. And suddenly a thought occurred to me.


How simple and enjoyable driving around the city can be,if the roads were this empty and the sight was clear. The air,if not completely polluted,is sweet when it gushes into whatever place it can find in our face. It makes life seem so simple.It gives you a moment of serenity to ponder on things. How easy life would be,if it had none of the twists and turns!How easy it’d be if there is no one blaring at you to keep moving! But take my word,it can be boring like that. How it’d be to wake up and see a winner in the mirror everyday in the morning. After two days,i’d want to lose. Because losing gives all the more value to winning. And for winning you need competition. More than that,Life could be boring without all its twists and turns.

And bored i was.. When all those philosophical thoughts creped into my head. We got to live the hard way right. Traffic,here i come!

A week To remember!

At the start of the week,i probably couldn't have asked for more! And by week,i mean the 7 days from last Friday till 23 minutes ago!It has been one week i probably won’t forget for a very long time to come! Let me go back through it!

It was 9 in the morning! I got up ever so lazily,with the sun already glancing at me with a hint of jealousy from up there in his position,through whatever gap my window would allow. I had decided to bunk that day due to the various commitments that i had and of course,there was the annual day that was to come,later that day.But nothing went the way,i had thought it would! But there was more than that! While i was driving through the roads which have seen much of me from my childhood,i got to see the  mam who is the reason behind my love for math.I followed her car,only to be greeted by her in the most familiar way of hers and it was no surprising that she remembered me! I am always a bit haughty of the fact that,my teachers can never forget me !Not with the name i have;) Anyways it was good to see her after such a long time! Back to my ‘commitments’ now! When i returned home,relieved of my commitments i was a bit pissed at my clock which showed 6.30! I was supposed to go to an annual day! I started in a hurry only to reach my school at 7.00. And then,time flew by like anything!! Once i get into those corridors,i forget everything about my present! It’s like i was having a long forgotten dream! I wouldn’t forget the minutes i spent that day ,chatting inside my higher secondary class rooms for many days to come!And then we went to our school terrace. And spoke of the things i miss so much in life…….

Saturday was special of course!It was special for reasons i don’t want to publicize,but my close buddies already know the reason:) Anyways let’s go to Sunday now..


It was around 1.00 in the afternoon when i was walking the straight road to ma friends’ place in Porur.Some 2 hours went by and we started on the long drive to some place called ‘Seyyur’.Travelling with friends is always amazing and that day was no exception! We finally reached the place around 6 30 only to find the place flooded with traffic.It was worth it though!When we got settled,at around 7.00,there was the man,himself!You wouldn’t believe it when i say,he’s the one who got 2 Oscars in the same night!And then what else to expect,but MAGIC! Not 1 or 2 but 4 hours of magic.You never know,what music is capable of!And when it comes from somewhere near ARR, you can have no idea!Am not getting very much into what he sang and stuff.Because,regardless of what he sings or who others are present,Rahman’s capable of making the clock stop ticking!We came home around 3 only to get up 7 to get ready to college:((

Saturday,Monday and Wednesday were all special for the same reason!The one reason which makes this week all the more special for me!

And the week couldn’t have ended on a better note!This is the first time ever,that i am surprising a friend on his Birthday! It ended up as a ‘no’ surprise because of me being late( a habit of mine these days!) but it was special nevertheless!

I  almost forgot! Nia celebrated her first Birthday this week too.

Nowhere to go????

It's been sometime since my last post..Fair enough,i haven't had anything interesting in life( not entirely true though,some days were interesting but for reasons i wouldn't blog;) ) I actually don't get too many topics these days. Am i undergoing a process of 'change' as person?? Now,coming to life currently, i have this 'I don't know where i am going' feeling all over my head. I mean there are a few in this side who i hear saying 'Dude, I've joined this GRE course.Looks like it is gonna be fun' and there is this other side where i hear few others saying 'CAT is good for people like us'. And there was this lecture this past week i attended, where a professor from IIT asked us to give GATE a try. Now that, did bring a bit of brightness into my dull life but the thing is i must thoroughly decide what i want to do. IT is surely not an interesting path as of now. But the question to which i must find an answer is,will i be able to do well in GATE. And to people who are still thinking SVCE is one heaven of a college, times have changed,sadly! My college is trying to bring in all these rules which most of the other colleges have, which i describe with the adjective silly. So life's boring and i am waiting for september 7th to lift my spirits;);)

'Cup kahinn tho janna padega'!!

I am one 'angry' fan as of now!

We have the best team that could possibly have put up a title defense,thanks to the IPL. But now, I feel like an idiot,having hoped that this team would bring the cup back.'Cup kahin tho jaanna padega'!All that potential on paper,that could blow off any opposition on its day.It's only sad that,we got our 'day' only in the practice match,against Pakistan.I would've been happy,if we had been gracious in defeat,at least,like Ireland,for instance.God knows what they could've done with a squad like ours!And am still wondering why i don't remember any 'short pitch stuff' planned on Raina in the IPL,when he's pathetically weak when the ball's directed towards his head.And i guess,Viru must be one happy man now.I still don't know if his injury is real or not,but i bet he would've done better against the short pitch stuff!And Dhoni. He's in the action during the matches alright.But sadly,more of that action is during the breaks,in the ads!I know its bad to praise a man when he wins and loathe him when he fails,still,i always thought Dhoni was overrated in everything he did.

But if there is on player who am happy about,it is Yuvi.He did show us his class,which he has in abundance.

To the best person on Earth!!

If it weren't for her,
We wouldn't be here.
She struggled for three hundred odd days,
just to see our tiny face.
We knew her first,
she made us know the rest.
She fought most part of her life,
just for us to have a good life.
If we don't repay it,
we're probably not worth her.
When we're happy,
she'll be there.
When we're in trouble
she'll still be there.
But when she's not there,
we'll be staring nowhere.
To my own mother,
And all the others',
One special day for a special person worth 365 such days.

Bucket list!!

It's been sometime since my last post!! What else to blame but,lack of time and topics!!And one reminder that am a football freak,the premier league is reaching its business end!!And it seems it is getting a bit too close for United's liking,but like one of ma friends says,its not as close as it looks!!How much i wish that could be false!!!!I wish it wouldn't be a clean sweep of titles by the Devils this time around..

Coming to normal things now,I've been watching lots of movies lately,apart from being 'addicted' to 'HEROES' TV show. The latest in that list...The Bucket List...I actually wasn't completely aware of the plot until i saw the movie,but downloaded it because of the 2 great actors it casts. And only 2 hours before seeing this one today,i saw 'one flew over the cuckoo's nest' and was indeed impressed by the younger Nicholson.So i decided to sit down and watch this movie,even though a friend of mine had said that it was a slow but meaningful story.It was exactly that.But it left me with one clear idea of what i might try to do in my later days! Am getting my list ready.'Driving a Gallardo', for one!!Ideas ,anyone???

Prisoner Of BIRTH..

Who isn't???!!! Have you ever thought,how different it'd have been had you been born a couple of seconds before in a completely different hospital??? We always can choose our Destiny,but what we choose is, more often than not,dependent on the people we meet and the way we're brought up!!So that just sums up why i think we're all 'Prisoners of our birth'!!

But,only one's in ma mind right now...And that's Danny Cartwright!!Rings a bell??? If it doesn't,it is the lead character in the book i just completed-'A Prisoner of Birth' by Jeffrey Archer.I have read only one other work of Archer ,namely 'First Among Equals'.It wasn't my genre of interest,but still,i liked it for Archer's narration.Ever since I read about the book's(PoB) release,sometime last year in the papers,i wanted to read this particular work of Archer.And the author himself said that the book could be taken for a modern day 'Count Of Monte Cristo'!Now that's some book i'll never forget in my life(leave alone Edmond Dantes) because it was the first book i ever read(Because it was in my Non detail portions;)). And indeed,i found that most of the plot did match!!

The story starts with Danny being convicted for the murder of Bernie,his best buddy and his lover's only brother!He is put in Belmarsh,the prison,and gets himself acquainted with Nick('Sir Nickholas') and Big Al,his cell mates!!Danny's appeal is rejected even though his lawyer Mr.Alex Redmayne tries his best. The actual murderers,a group of three close friends,escape this time and they start to relax a bit....But there was one thing Nick and Danny had in common,Looks..Most of them in the prison mistook them to be brothers.Suddenly the plot gathers speed as Nick is killed(again due to being mistaken for Danny) before six weeks of his release date.With some assistance from Al with the medical files,Danny walks free as Sir Nicholas while most of his family and friends are still mourning 'his' death.He sees to it that what Nicholas inherited from his grandfather, is safe from the hands of his cunning uncle. He then turns his mind to one thing,'REVENGE'.He plans his every move,but still ends up being on trial again,as everyone realise who he actually is.Once again it is Spencer Craig,the actual killer of Bernie,who makes sure that Danny doesn't succed in getting his revenge with aid from his two other musketeers .Then comes my favorite part of the book,'Redemption'.It actually reminded me why i once was,obsessed with 'John Grisham'.Not only is Danny cleared of his current trial,the old trial is revised again,only for the story to end,how it must!
