aah. men men men!, they have so much to learn.

* the only correct answer to "do i look fat in this" is "no honey, you are perfect!"...memorize it!

* When we say that we know something is going on, something is undeniably going on, and you’d better own up soon.

* When we go to the bathroom together, we talk about you.

* Diamonds, jewelry, bags and shoes are investments. The Xbox360, Play station and other similar gadgets are not.

* We love your mother just as much as she loves us

* DON'T tell us to RELAX

i guess i have changed, those who've known me long enough will tell you that, that is if they still know me, i never bother to keep in touch, never seem to make an effort.

i have no explanations.

life seems to be taking course that i seem to follow, i should feel something along the way, but i thats not happening.
hola!

well my explanation for not showing up would be socialising, yes thats sumthing new for me since i cant even remember the last time i "went out". so here are a few things i've learnt from the past few weeks-:

1. if u think a guy is cute, tell him. (been there, done that)

2. do not take tips on flirting from a certain aakash parasher. he's mean online :P

3. talking of Parasher, he's not that bad after all, only his reputation precedes him.

4. always talk to Sidd Pandey when He's busy making a report, he'll answer "any" questions you have :)

5. Once you Catch Akhil in good mood, insist on a treat and he'll give it to ya.

6. Most importantly, DO NOT watch an Adam Sandler film even if people bribe you suitably. just take my word for it.

7. make ur parents take u shopping for daughter's day(28th sep for later ref), buy a great pair of jeans and feel hot for one whole day.
it rained today, my glasses broke, walked from college to the bus stop ...... i happen to see the beauty in everything only when i can't see clearly..

akhil's right... i am too practical to be happy.

i am trying to find a way to do both well....lets see :)

Rock On!!

well, despite what a certain Ms.Murthy says, i think he's HOT!
umm, nice movie, go watch! shoo!
Me: so do u like me more or cricket?

Person: ummmm.........err......ehem........ well, u know there really isnt any comparison.............well........

Me: well, on any given afternoon, me or cricket?

Person: well....hmmm..

ME: Hem hem!!

Person: U!! ofcourse.

MEN!~ u love, u hate 'em.

my life.......(sucks)

hello there so there's another weekend knocking at my door, and making me realize (again) that i have no life whatsoever. well but i have it all chalked out, i plan to get a pack of mother dairy's finest Vanilla and yes, finish it!! if that's not enough, i shall get to my book and catch a few lousy shows on t.v., college is okay, results came out and i have figured life is indeed a series of dissapointments and the guy up there deals you the good cards once in a while just to see the look on ur face, anyways, thanks man!

so, since i am totally VElla, i decided to clear out my inbox today, and read a couple of old mails, so basically i went through the last couple of years of my life, which were left there carelessly scattered around my mailbox..... this is stuff that made me laugh out loud ( or LOL as a certain Mr.Pandey would use 2 times in a standard sentence ). . . so here are some chosen memories, revisited (not in any particular order).
--------------------------------…
"In anticipation of the time, if it ever comes, when I will see you
frown at my defects; when mature reflection tells you that you've come to the
end of your love for me; in anticipation of that time when you will pass by me
like a stranger, barely even acknowledging me with a glance of your brilliant
eye; when your love for me isn't love anymore and you're guided only by somber
judgment—in anticipation of that time, I'm establishing myself here, knowing how
little I really deserve, and I'm giving testimony against myself to defend the
justice of your future actions. You have every right to leave poor me—all the
laws of reason back you up—since I can't offer any justification for your loving
me."

- simplified Shakespeare ..... true enough.

so okay, i have been extremely lazy and haven't really been here for the past two weeks, so i apologise and all.....so college has begun and we've greeted juniors, can't believe we're telling people stories of how when we first came to college........... hmm, being old shall be fun though....me and priya have a pact of sorts, about that later.

so this semester seems interesting, but it has to be said that something should be done to perk up those damn lectures, the subjects are great, but Verma Sir going on and on in a south indian tone sounds more like a ballad than gas dynamics,man i miss Tanzy (yes i love him!!)
but not much is happening in college apart from the initiatives we seem to be taking, the aerospace journal is getting somewhere finally, and dobby will start soon enough.

personally, i have (with a little help from harish) noticed a trend in my love life, the guys i have liked/dated/wanted to date sooooo badly have all gone on to become quite successful proffe…
hey
been sometime na, well i have been a lazy lazy girl, not doing much at all. i saw Forrest Gump, which i think everyone should watch once at least, really nice movie.......i am re-reading Master Of The Game, which is one of my very favorites, and i am hoping someone comes along and gives me another book soon.... waiting for college to start again and yeah, i am very very bored at home!so please somebody gimme something to write about !!!ciao,you know who.

school school !!

lets take a trip down memory lane, shall we..........


Samarth Bhatia....sammy, samster and self acclaimed cool guy..my best friend of 17 yrs....


so we loved our teachers (so much)....and they loved us back!........that grin- PRICELESS!.....maths teacher.


hmmm, see sometimes i was good too..


and then there was the free time.....



and u thought only women did the whole poledancing bit...and i believe he's still single...LAAADIES!!!!

Sam Bahadur

There is so much to be said about Sam Manekshaw, the eulogy delivered by Jehan Daruwala, grandson of the late Field Marshal at a memorial service says it all:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------It's been an overwhelming few weeks for us as a family, and now, I shall tell you about the man I knew, the man behind the one you all knew as Field Marshal S.H.F.J. Manekshaw.

He would pick up the phone in the house and in a booming voice say "Feeeaaald Maaaarshaaaalll!!!" which would make my brother and I break out into fits of laughter.

At home, this man was the farthest thing from being the highest-ranking officer in one of the world's largest standing armies. To Raul, Brandy and me, he was always Sam, our most amazing, wonderful, and loving grandfather.

He was the man whose thick finger you held on to as you were taken around the garden and made to memorize the names of flowers.

The man who showed you how to wash behind your …

weekend...

well its been a very very interesting weekend, not much to do actually but i saw two movies that will have a good impact on most of those who watch them, the best thing being that both starred Leo Dicaprio and needless to say he looked HOT!!



-The Departed



-The Aviator


well come to think of it, these arent the movies i would normally watch, but i am glad i did, both are great but i prefer The Departed to the other one (i know, who would have thought!!). The Aviator features Leo as a passionate, eccentric, disturbed, ladies man Howard Hughes, which our man plays with ease but it is the portrayal of the undercover cop that completely takes the cake, much like blood diamond, he shines through, The film is intriguing and does complete justice to the oscars it was nominated for and won in the end.

Apart from all great logic, i have two very simple points which make the departed better:

1) Leonardo Dicaprio, Matt Damon, Mark Wahlberg as opposed to just Leo.

2) You're telling me, you are gonna…
Hey now, if your baby leaves you,
And you got a tale to tell.
Just take a walk down lonely street
To heartbreak hotel.
first of all Happy birthday Akhil!!, and thanks for the best party ever!......so yesterday was a day of discoveries.....well for one i am certain that i am not the booze kind of person,i do not get the point of it and at any point in the experiment it feels like there's more about to come out than that went in...so no alcohol here. but i am the dancing kind of person,we went to a lounge bar in atta, while the others tried out rum etc, i ventured into unknown territory with a cocktail lavishly called Everest..(although i wanted to try something called the flying tigress)...honestly, it tasted like orange juice with a generous dose of glycodin (yes, the cough medicine)..so they started playing all the songs, and there we were, dancing like crazy, who knew it took harish a couple of beers to get it going on, he "danced" to some famous punjabi song.

so there, we literally danced for 2 hours straight, to hindi, english and punjabi; went crazy but it was great.,..hmm, i should …

jaane tu.............

its not revolutionary, path breaking and doesnt give out any messages for sure, it might be a take on the whole "girl boy friendship funda", but it does not preach, doesnt lay down any ground rules or doesnt tell you how it is SUPPOSED to be, and thats why Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na is a good film, its like a book almost,its lets you perceive it as you like.its a nice film about the real sorta goofy people, who mess up from time to time, and yes it doesnt teach you how to be cool, so it isnt the quintessential youth film. Watch it once, fun film...

Btw, Imran Khan's 6 pack doesnt hurt either :P

in the end....

thats it, isnt it........

powerpuff girls!!

so yesterday was my sister's bday, hence an oppurtunity to sit here and there and pose for photos...he he....nice party though , but me and priya sorta collectively hate kids aged 5-14...atleast i do.

again

i think everybody should watch this movie, once at the very least!!

what i am thinking of right now...

well for some reason, the only image in my mind is.....



as they say, "Govinda Govindaa"

art!!

Aren't there standards?

Of course.

Otherwise a tacky velvet painting
could be equated to a Rembrandt.

There are standards, technique,
composition, color, even subject.

So if you're suggesting
that rotted side of meat is art...

...much less good art,
then what are we going to learn?



What is art?
What makes it good or bad?
And who decides?

--------------------------------------------------------------------

What the FUCK!!!
And sometimes it happens that you are loved and then
You are not loved,
And love is past.
And whole days are lost and among them
A fountain empties itself into the grass.

And sometimes you want to speak to them and then
You do not want to speak,
Then the opportunity has passed.
Your dreams flare up, they suddenly vanish.

cough cough!

helooo

so i write today so people can leave comments on new blog posts rather than old, to help them escape their monotony i believe.

well, i have come down with a terrible terrible throat infection (cough, cold, sneezing, oh the works!!). hmm so on the work front, Our Mentor (Mental) has been breathing fire down our necks, expecting us to come up with a fully functional tachometer by tommorow, with my cold and everything, we havent really been able work anything out yet.sad i must say.

well the happy thing is that after a go ahead from Tarnacha sir, Dobby s successfully on the table and Finally we can learn something, i hope it works out for all of us. Harish is going through a writer's block and that is what is giving him most of his stress these days (That and Mon not being around, but he wont say it, MEN!!). Priya had been spending the weekends with me at home for the past two weeks, and i must say girls bond in a way men can't, hmm, its just not possible for them to, u can t…
have been watching movies these days, a lot of them.......started college again, went on the 11Th and we have to work on a tachometer all summer (its like a speedometer for aircrafts)....all in all not a very interesting week, pretty lazy and laid back. lets hope things speed up in the days to come.









oh yeah, all seen, all liked....looking forward to some more.

also now reading "a married woman" by Manju Kapur, great style, i hope the story's as good.

aloha!!

Well hello.

So the advent of my so called summer vacation has been bad, hmm, quite bad, I was supposed to go on this trip to Himachal with my family but couldn’t as a result of my exam being postponed, so they went anyways, and I spent 3 very empty days at my relatives in a posh south Delhi enclave, the only bright spot being having an animated conversation with my friend off 17 years, Samarth. Funny, how some things never ever change.

I am back at home now, looks like everybody but me is traveling. My sister is off to Chennai (where I point blank refuse to go) and Dad just got back from a trip to Mumbai.
Priya is in Pune (damn, I miss that girl!!) and Ankur back to Dehradun (I miss u too baby!!).

Dad brought me books from Bombay, he’s not quite the reader so never knows what to buy, so now I have a set of Chetan Bhagat books, chalo at least I have something to read now.

Having already read Bhagat’s earlier attempts at writing (Five Point Someone; One Night @ the Call Centre) I conclude th…

aha!

so my friend harish says i am like ELAINE BENES from Seinfeld... welll.... i like it its better than a lot of other stuff ;) plus i like elaine. i now think i am like her because she said this: "He's a bad breaker-upper." about an ex flame,

ehem,arent they all? :P

p.s. harish then u wud be Cramer, i suppose?
its summer again, i dread the season that always brings along gruesome heat and bloody hell,Exams!! but looks like there are a few things i like abt the dreary season after all, so here we go:- (by the way, if u notice i am all into lists these days)

1.amaltas - the indian laburnum, bright yellow flowers which greet you dangling off every tree in delhi, everywhere u go, althought the gulmohar is also in full bloom, amaltas are a treat, putting the sunshine to shame just shining bright!!

2.the heat sort of makes everyone lazy, so in effect we are lazier than usual. no work gets done and draggin friend to eat momos is easier!

3.u have an excuse for ur ever lasting lethargy now, it works better thn it does in winters, trust me!

4.u may mess up, but later attribute ur frustration(or someone elses) to the pathetic weather.

baaki later, the weather's making me quite dull.....:P hope it worked!!
you know how i can confirm that i have no life, whatsoever??......

i wake up every morning at precisely 2.30 am, recall whatever it is that i was dreaming abt and laugh my ass off!......yesterday, i dreamt abt this cute guy telling me that he is better than me in MANUFACTURING MACHINES (the subject!!)....i come up with new rejection plans while sleeping! bloody hell.... are u convinced now??

i am telling u, i am giving competition to crazy plate lady now.

BACHAO!!!
Mundane stuff about me that you should/must know.......(plus i am bored)

1. I like my beverages cold, or atleast at room temperature, else i let them take their own sweet time cooling, even coffee and tea...( sorry priya)

2.I hate it when people make little pools of daal on their plates and let other things take a swim in it....ugh!

3.I cannot live without lip gloss...my glasses are a close second.

4.I cannot stand lil red ants, the kinds that bite.

5.I dream in black and white, sometimes gray....but they're still colorful.

6.I like the sound of heartbeats.

7.My idea of a pet is a rock, or at the most Harish. NO, change that back to a rock.

8.I have eaten pasta arrabiatta every time i have been out in the past two months.

9.Two thirds of my closet in pink.

10.Despite #9, I am predominantly a tomboy (ask samarth)

11.I want to keep in touch with everyone i have ever known.

12.I sulk at will.

13.I have consistently dreamt of the the same thing.person.place for the past 2 weeks.

14."A passion …
oh yeah, u're so strong?, u resist him!! (enlarge image)
To make love with a stranger is the best.
There is no riddle and there is no test. --

To lie and love, not aching to make sense
Of this night in the mesh of reference.

To touch, unclaimed by fear of imminent day,
And understand, as only strangers may.

To feel the beat of foreign heart to heart
Preferring neither to prolong nor part.

To rest within the unknown arms and know
That this is all there is; that this is so.

now.

One Art

The art of losing isn't hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster.

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

I lost my mother's watch. And look! my last, or
next-to-last, of three loved houses went.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it wasn't a disaster.

---Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
I love) I shan't have lied. It's evident
the art of losing's not too hard to master
though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.



SO THE POINT BEING,WE LOSE,WE PICK UP WE MOVE ON.

so here it is!!

prince william.........Aaaaaaaaaaa!

you know thats the trouble with men, they are either taken or they're gay!!

this is it, now!

Let me now sleep, let me not think, let me
Not ache with inconsistent tenderness
It was untenable delight; we are free--
Separate, equal--and if loverless,
Love consumes time which is more dear than love,
More unreplicable. With everything
Thus posited, the choice was clear enough
And daylight ratified our reckoning.

for you now.....

i borrowed this for u from someone who writes what i think.........

-----------------------------------------------------

The whole road was laid by fallen flowers. Crushed, defeated, they left behind a few wet tears maybe, as spidery patterns on the black road.

I loved those flowers. The elegant pale green stalks that burst open into five feathers of white. And the yellow stalks that peeped out shyly from within. One always longs to look beyond confines.

And we walked... talked occasionally. The smart crisp sound of steps in an unfailingly regular pattern on the otherwise silent road.

Those were the 'certain' years. One was certainly not a kid. One was certainly not old. One was certainly uncertain.

A fainéant beach breeze of the summer evening, a trifle warm. I watch him gather flowers of all colors. They make a startlingly colorful bunch.

There is a bend on the road home. The steps become shorter. Reluctant. We'd gathered more than just flowers. And none of it could be taken…

mumblings.

" we are for each other: then
laugh, leaning back in your arms
for life's not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis "


yup,death is no parenthesis, nor is anything else for that matter.... we love, often unconditionally, not knowing where it will go but hoping nevertheless...whether or not we make it there of secondary, the primal is stark, crystal clear : LOVE!

p.s.-HAPPY NEW YEAR etc etc. hope its fun for u!
