Happy Diwali

Festival of lights is just around the corner & I can already feel the crackers in my head (very elated!)
Diwali has always been very close to my heart..I like the light being all over the place…the diyas, lanterns, crackers ‘n loads of  mithais (yummmy!)
So here’s wishing you all a Happy ‘n Prosperous Diwali (with less noise ‘n smoke please!)
Have loads of fun!

Sue u Apple

Now this is scary !!
I’m not sure if this is true, but there are stories on the net that Apple has bought GO 92.5 FM (the only local station on radio arena where you get decent stuff for your ears !), the reason being they wanted to cut down english songs being streamed to the localites so that they can be deprived of quality stuff & shell out money to buy iPODs (innovative !?…not at all…sue you Apple !)
what’s even worse is that this ‘pioneering’ idea seems to have worked for Apple, sale of iPODs have actually increased…I had immense respect for Apple’s strategy when it came to marketing their products, but with this gesture all respect has gone down the gutters ‘n guess what Mumbai gutters are really filthy !!

so anyone of the unlucky Mumbai Morons out there who just’ve spent money to buy Apple’s ‘cult gizmo’ because u cudn’t find high quality music of your choice…u know whom to blame !

Men @ Work



We often crib & complain of the various issues & problems in our lives & fail to see the brighter & better part.These are men who work from dawn to dusk to get a decent meal for their family, tough men on even tougher work, yet with a never dying attitude..its so depressing to see a kid trying hard to catch a few winks in the scorching heat, probably with an empty stomach & an uncertain future.

hope to see a world without sadness ‘n poverty,

hope to see a world with joy ‘n glory,

hope to see a world free of misery & loneliness,

hope to see a world full of love,

…and hope to see my wishes to be true.

I don’t want to die & go to heaven, I want to live and make this world a heaven…

I’m back

back with a bang, but this time in a new image…more crap, more useless stuff 'n the same ol' me…

Mumbai Bloggers Meet

As I’d promised I did get my butt to the meet-up & being indolent enough I’m the last one to write ‘bout it, well to start the chronicle – I wanted to reach TGIF, Infiniti mall on time, but somehow my inner laziness crept out & decided to catch a few winks before the meet as I was partying real hard the previous night & somehow reached there by 1700 hrs.for a ‘grand’ entry.

Riding on towards Andheri I was contemplating on the different reactions each one would have the moment they would see me…”OMG!..not another moron in our midst”….“this guy is weirder than he looks”…

When I reached there, the place was a bit dark but with a good ambience & found a center table & 8 to 10 people seated around. As any late latif would do I preferred keeping my ‘eccentric’ thoughts to myself & left others to wonder whether I’m stupid rather than open my mouth and remove all their doubts…

I couldn’t interact with many of them were far off, some 300 cms away, others were not in my line of sight & rest not audible. The two guys I interacted with were discussing on world peace, macroeconomics, aid for the mentally deprived & how Rajnikant can defy gravity..(just kiddin’) & soon enough I was guiding and advising them on future career prospects, which I’m pretty bad & left them in an uncertain state of imbroglio, ironically they seemed to have realize it (even worse!!!)

We came out of TGIF lighter with a big hole drilled into our pockets to have the second round of discussion, this time much more interesting (that’s what everyone expected & later got disappointed…hee…hee).

Under natural lights gals looked much more gorgeous & guys more weirder (Why God, why? such a disparity on beauty) nevertheless had more fun outside & felt better (’twas easy on the pockets & for the mind)

to sum it all up I would give 4 out of 5 on the fun meter & definitely lookin’ forward for the next one….

As Gabbar says –

kab hai next meet-up, kab hai ??

Knowledge is Power


Its been a long time I started with this book,yet to finish readin’ it…Yes I know I’m pathetic!! Posted by Picasa

Murder

Saturday, 1100 hrs, ideal room,nasty mosquito,bugged moron…bang !!!
dead nasty mosquito, happy moron 😀

1000 hits and still going strong

Its good to see that little counter (down there) cross 1000 visits,

at least I can be assured that “someone” actually is paying a visit (God knows, if he/she is reading this space too).

Secondly I’m surrounded with so called “close friends” who dedicatedly visit but I wonder what stops them from commenting to the posts, maybe they just wanna remain anonymous, but then what the heck sometimes nothing is better than nothing.

Forgiveness is not an occasional act: it is a permanent attitude; damn!!! I’m just incorporated with this one.

Mark Twain once told me that if you’re looking for friends when you need them…it’s too late. (I hope not late enough…)

Meanwhile I’ll be closely monitoring that counter…

V Day – D Day

Another Valentine’s day comes to a dull end, well it never was of any importance atleast for me..so no regrets!!!
Somehow I don’t relate to this mushy love feelings around because never been in love before, but I do feel good to see couples together, hold hand in hand and share their most precious feelings, which shows that there is someone to care ’bout.
The very thought of being in love scares the shit outta me (never knew why and never bothered to..)
maybe love is too complex and composite for me, but one day I might unknowingly walk those unexplored territory with a beautiful, sensible, sensitive gal (hopefully), because love happens and you never know (that’s what ‘love birds’ tell me)
After all I’m just a normal guy in search of a normal gorgeous, smart, sensitive, lovely, cute normal gal…(heehe)
till then I enjoy being me and love my freedom.

License to thrill ?

Finally I decided to get my things going, had to issue my driving license, so took a small break from office and hurried up to the RTO office and as usual had to wait (real long) for my turn to come up.

Waited anxiously for 3 hours for the test and came out passed without even sitting in the car, some things are better kept unexplained, all the officials from top to bottom are corrupt, in some case you don’t even have to be present physically, you can have your license delivered right at your door-step..

so right now waiting patiently for my license and then to lay my hands on all the cars I can access.
