A new beginning

And this transition, metamorphose  is not self-made. There are many to whom I am thankful to- My parents, grand parents, my sister, friends(especially those who are patient enough to listen to me and point out things) and blogging friends. There are some people who are more than a friend.

And when I think back, a few people who are here(in the blogging world), who have inspired me and helped me  are NitaKeshiPaul,  SakhiReemaAartiMahakShaktiGB, IndyeahShivaDIand  Priya,  among others. I want to thank you all. I learnt things through your blogs and the conversations we have had.

Yup thats my sister and her friends 😛 They did this for a computer science project 🙂 (after making me download a software called Photostory { ya microsoft does have a few free software!} ) .

” Laziness is the mother of invention” , so mom feels because :-

Got them to speak through the speaker mode on the phone from their houses.

Click here to read her entry and comment on it 🙂

HA if only I was that innovative 😛 The maximum I have done till date is to assemble a project in under 15 mins( took print outs of the material and pics , told people to bring charts , sketches etc and assembled in school 😛 – I do miss those things 😦 )

And ya do comment on her blog ( ya ya she finally has decided it is high time she starts writing over there diligently 🙂 )

Happy birthday Indi! and happy friendship day :D

August 2, 2009 § 16 Comments

First and fore most – Happy Birthday Indi 😀 😀 😀

Someone who can see the stupidity around in the world 🙂 And not just that who has the mettle to question it 🙂 Some of her posts have shown me thing which I have been unaware off.

For the record we aliens do live….its nice knowing you fellow Alien 😉 Happy Birthday again 😉

___________

Personally I don’t believe in having special days such as friendship day , Mother’s day etc. But anyway , let me not be a Scrooge 😉

People come and people go , out of our lives but a true friend is one , who even if we happen to meet after a long time , we can talk to as if not a day as passed under the bridge 🙂

So happy friendship day everyone 🙂

half past eight

From new camera1

Sometimes you just smile,

And there nothing can hide .

Sometimes you just see 

And the sight sets you free .

 

He lay on his bed wondering what is going on around him . Sometimes things just seem too good to be real . Having his phone buzzing , people wanting to talk to him made him feel happy . But some how , he couldn’t stop looking at where he was all those years back . Time is a funny thing . As you grow older , you keep changing . Things which mattered to you a while back don’t . You see your self in the mirror and try to think back ,what you felt when you saw into it a few months back . You smile at how you felt .

He smiled . But some how he couldn’t accept certain things . He wished this was not a dream . Funny how for a person who kept living in his dreams , he wished this was not a dream . What people never understand is that , what is just a remark by a stranger for someone might mean the world to others and that it can hurt . Yet if you ever spoke about how certain things affected you , people become sarcastic and pass more comments . But by now you have learnt so wouldn’t really care about any of it .

Pain seems a burden when it is physical but it is torture when it is mental . He smiled into the mirror again . Ha made a few funny faces at himself and laughed . He turned and jumped about as if he was a kid . That is what is fun , trying to connect to things by trying to feel the world within . The passion with which you try to understand things around you . The innocent tenacity . He started to sing . It didn’t matter to him , that he was a horrible singer , he just enjoyed doing it .

All though time might catch up soon , he knew he could always play with himself , the child within him .It doesn’t matter what walls are erected , it doesn’t matter what they are made up of . What does matter is the fact that you know you can bring them down when you want to ,not because you have to but because you want to…It was half past eight , he left for the party with a big smile. 

 

Last day of school

February 18, 2009 § 28 Comments

Today was my last day in school.It felt strange,it all seemed too well,14 years some how has passed by filled with so many things.Though initially I was feeling nostalgic,reality soon set in,many of us are happy that school life is over.

We all never get to choose our schools ,the choice is made for us.Now having done with it,there are a lot of memories,good and bad.

My father just said it was like yesterday,that he dropped in an Ambassador Car.My face is no more that of a sweet baby ,the beard and moush,make me look old 😛 I suddenly felt like singing in school,”I am not a boy,I am not a man yet ” but then of course,the cameras got in the way.A million photos I guess,a little bit of craziness….

I have always been in the “worse class in the school” and yet been the good boy around 😛 (when they did put me in a good class,I had to entertain myself :P) . I have some bad memories of not having a friend for a couple of years etc.
But then the last two years have been amazing,especially the last year,in the “commerce class” .

The school has thought me a lot of things-how people like to stick to groups and they would this without thinking.And of course,what was thought has had a influence on my core values.

A lot of memories about special people as well.Of course,I would be in touch with all the people I want to,but there are certain people with whom I never got along with..and the special ones, 😉

I do not know what I should be doing,no more do I need to wake and wonder about incomplete homework and plan how I am going to finish it.I was happy course to see the last of the bitchy politics go,I hope I never have to get into any of it again.

I have proved to myself,I can write in English,couple of years back,my English would have been as normal as normal can be,but I guess I have managed to change that.But the best thing I guess is that I no more need to worry about those unnecessary people,I can wave my hands at all of them,like a bride groom on top a horse.

I still can’t figure out how 14 years passed by,it seems different now…well I have my exams in all of 12 days time…

The isms of school life

November 21, 2008 § 11 Comments

Pessimism:- You never  know everything that is there to be known before an exam.

Optimism:-You can always look forward to coming back home after exams and sleeping.

Terrorism:-Exams morns,they bombarded you with thing which you never expected/didn’t know existed.

Materialism:-You invariably want everyone’s lunch(or)you wonder if you could get that useless phone your friend is talking about.

Euphemism:-You tell the teacher you were studying and forgot the book at home,when in fact  you felt that the book was heavy and a waste.

Fascism:- Politeness is not another brick in the wall nor being a part of an “English medium” school means that everything is English-its all appearance.

Racism:- *The following statement has been deleted by the author,to avoid trouble* Well lets be emphatic and put it simply as ,”we Indian’s are all racists-it just runs deeper than race” variably or invariably,your bound to feel that something is not just right there-the teachers themselves speak about “tamil’s(south Indians) and North Indians’ attitude.yet this is so innate in our system,that we really don’t realize that we are racists.(well if there is such a word-castists)

Humanism:-Being “good” is something which never does any good.Unless you can swear in at least three language and come up disgusting things on the spot,you are not human.Being part of humanity is a privilege and school teaches you that.

Pragmatism:-The best way to finish your assignments/home works in the shortest time possible,is to be creative-with your answers and reasons(if you cannot meet the deadline).

Socialism:-Everyone gets similar marks/everyone doesn’t submit their work/everyone accepts the blame.

Conservatism:-Year after the year,the students conserve one thing-becoming worse.If a batch fails to get the “you are the worse people we have ever seen”,then they have broken the tradition.

Sentimentalism:-Emotions are always on a high.What else happens when every guy feels a need to go out with a girl but then realizes that it is not worth it-either it is too emotional,empty pockets.

realism:-The world is a cruel place,the teachers themselves have seen only a part of it and keep telling you how you will be ruined if you go out,they are scared it seems,if not why are they teaching anyway?We can do away with a few of those teachers.

naturalism:-No not walking naked.Lieing comes naturally to every student.We are racists,here also-we have white lies which are supposedly small and harmless,when in fact we were ruled by them for over 200 years.

fundamentalism:-The religion is being a good student and the scriptures being arbitrary laws  passed on from gen to gen and of course amendments made every year,unsaid but felt.The latest law I observed-don’t be kind to your Seniors,swear on their face.

Alotropism:-Walking in a straigth line,is for the KG kids,not for 12th standards.

Absenteeism:-School is boring and waste of time,when everyone is present.It is more fun when there are 7-8 absentees per day.The teachers waste their time and energy trying to convince those who are present,that bunking school is not good.

Plagerism:-One person does the work,others copy.Life lesson learned early.Also the early bird catches the worm 🙂 Or the first guy to school gets the book 🙂 But then i have my own way,scribble to excape 🙂 

Falsism:-When people say things,just to satisfy someone,like a teacher.This in itself is an art,’cause most people would find it tough contradicting themselves.

Heroism:-Something which doesn’t apply to me, no i cannot lie.My Achilles heels seem to surface at the wrong time,well i wasn’t the hero,but at least i wasn’t zero.

Cynicism:-You hate it when people disturb you while you are looking at someone 😉 or catching up on your sleep.You support the fact that wanting it all,is the way to be.Yet the cynic is an abridge of the hero,at least in scolastic terms- in the eyes of his fellow socialists,he is viewed with much contempt.

Individualism:-Something which i follow.This basically includes not copying and standing on your own ,at whatever cost-makes sure you never get complacent.

Nihilism:-School,is just an eye wash.We don’t need no education.

Escapism:-Albeit this not being a cardinal virtue in any religion,it is in reality one.No one can ever sit in a class and not wonder to the fairy lands,rather chic lands.Procrastination is a vice,we don’t put off things,our clocks run on different time zones.

I am searching for more isms which have an affinity to the Indian school life.I have no clue what the difference is between here and in some monkey/donkey land,for the simple reason,I have been in this zoo,for the past 13 something years.Whatever maybe,i ardently support the cause of revamping our education system,for the simple reason,it is truly the survival of the strongest.Now don’t get me wrong,i do believe only the strong should live,but then this is might is right-more of parasites and hypocrites survive.

As the curtains call on my school life,the next stage of hunting and donating begins.This is one country where socialism of another kind exists,where in the rich pay donations,while the poor get in through reservations.If you don’t understand the underlying philosophy,i suggest you tune your cognition to Indian standards.While our English text books propagate Stephen Splender and ending the many veils thrown upon our beautiful society,the society reinforces its bleak views by holding on tightly,lest the prices drop.

This was supposed to be a humorous post and the humour lies in the fact,that i am wasting my time writing this,when in fact,the only satisfaction i can ever get would be the comments.I might sound like a pessimist,but than being a hero,demands too much and i am not  willing to go through the pain,not all alone.The society can burn in its own fire,I am going to be all but a responsible citizen of the future-I will step aside and let the fittest of the worse prevail and then see what i can do about it.The innate goodness is all good,unless you exhibit it for the sake of others,so i will keep it for myself and those who i care about.This is the maturity school has bought on me.Of course i should also credit this enigmatic blogging world for adding a few layers of matured dust on me-this after all is another one of those places,where we the public talk and talk and never do anything about what the majority seem to be thinking.This post is running of track,true,but then nostalgia is such,that it doesn’t allow precision.If i had written this in my English paper,i might have got better marks.

All the above mentioned isms are just the tip of the ice berg(through i have never seen a ice berg).If i were to dig,i can come up with more historically and archaeologically valuable visceral facts,that would send those bespectacled men into a binge.But for that accurate reason,I shall keep it all to myself,until another time,when little Tommy doesn’t want to play.This post essentially is to make me feel good and the psychological and chemical reactions with me,point that i have achieved that.

While the nexus might be inaudible,the bottom line is this-My school life is drawing to a close,in all of four months time.I shall soon be out into the big bad world,all dressed up and with memories of the days,in a wonderful school.My school is a place where i have learned a lot,positives too.That shall be aonther six yard tamilian intensified rant,so until than,i don’t think you will find me rant.

Thank you.

November 18, 2008 § 13 Comments

This is my 601th post.

The next poem,will be the 250th i write in my blog.

i will be crossing 40,000 hits(mostly would have by the time you come here to comment,see the sidebar).

So that is a lot of number and stat crunching 🙂 And talking about stats my blog has been hit by the recessions too 🙂 But i am sure,i will recover before the economies do(all it takes,is a couple of movie reviews and it will be jumping again).

So 600 posts,seems a lot,doesn’t it.Maybe that is why my page rank is 6 🙂

Ha well funny thing how these numbers give us satisfaction.

Anyway,i found a few questions in Lena’s blog. 
So lets see what are your answers 🙂

1. Who are you?
2. Are we friends?
3. Something I have and YOU want?
4. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it.
5. Describe me in one word.
6. What was your first impression of me?
7. Do you still think that way about me now?
8. What reminds you of me?
9. If you could give me anything what would it be?
10. How well do you know me?
11. How do you see me in the future?
12. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn’t?
13. Are you going to post this in your blog and see what I say about you?

Well and since its been a long 601(even though most of you are pretty new here) ,lets see what you all think of my blog.Thanks Nita for this idea.

 

 

Ha,its been good blogging 🙂

Well i have three tags to be done! And i am spoilt for choice.Now i am in a mood for something fun,So should i Do Dinesh’s tag or Aarti’s or the one I saw in Reema’s? 

Ha,but i am in no mood for making a list 😛 Or anything,So i am directing my mind towards the tag which i found in Reema’s blog. 🙂 First of all,this is the tag generator. Second of all,before i get started,let me deal with the cheese .

I have never given Cheese a thought and the suggestion,i talk to some cheese,made me think,what shuld i ask cheese.So the status is,i just looking for the right cheese to interview. 🙂

3. How would nita insult reema?

Nita and insult? I can’t see the connection 😀 Too tough,seriuosly,there will never be such a situation.I think I should reframe the question “how would reema insult Nikhil” 🙂 Any guesses anyone?

Ha ,interesting,i think the probability of me winning is 1/3 😛 Who do you think will win?

7. Name something you have in common with jeevan?

Cloud watching and taking photos 🙂 

8. If sakhi and aneesh teamed up, what would they most likely accomplish?

hmm..A super book.What with Aneesh’s College adventures and sakhi’s amazing stories,they might write the story of the century ! 😛 

9. How do your and priya joyce’s talents add up?

i have a Business Studies exam tomorrow,not maths 😛 I am pretty bad at it.So i think you guys should answer this one 🙂 

10.If you could do anything with aarti, what would it be?

Something in theater? Or a book perhaps 🙂 

11.Nikhil suddenly knows all your secrets. What do you have to say about that?

Really? Oh! he is a nice guy you know.I might just get him a peg 😛 

12. Can sakhi be bad influence?

Well no,i am not influened to know yet 🙂 Rather she hasn’t written anything in a long time,but she writes well 🙂 

13. What musical instrument would jane most likely play?

Guitar,the electric one,will suit her 🙂

Tagged!

September 17, 2008 § 17 Comments

Sakhi has tagged me this time! This one is about love or romance 😉 Lol,sounds fun 😛 but am not going to fall into this trap…My mouth is zipped…No i will not say anything,it will all be general 😛  so first the rules :

 

RULE #1 People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

RULE #2 Tag 6 people to do this quiz and they cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by, cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by, and must continue this game by sending it to other people.

So here are the questions:-

1)If your lover betrayed you, what will your reaction be?

Hmm…betray me.I hope no girl does that to me….:P But well i think i will write more poems,in that case…use it is as an inspiration..

 

2) If you can have a dream to come true, what would it be?

Find my girl ASAP 😛 

3)What do you love the most in your lover?     

Well,well…now who is this one about? Lover?Well i think i will fall for a girl,who can understand me…looks and stuff,well they just can be that… 😛 understanding is more important…well though not that much if you just want to love one girl 😉 {see i am generalizing it,lol,i won’y fall into the trap}

4)What would you do with a billion dollars?

What only a billion?Who is giving it to me? For what? Well maybe i will clean the Koovam 😛 Well no,i will invest it and make it 100 billion 😛 Well ok,this is a love tag,so well i might build a huge house for my girl ….it will be the tallest building in the world…with the largest garden…25 swimming pools…and well all the rest… 😛 well that too isn’t about love…damn,so well i think i might just,build a huge monument in her memory…and scrrible a few poems around it in jewels… 😛 

5)Will you fall in love with your best friend?

My best friend? Who?

6) Which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone?

Well my experience with the first,has had its share of bad waters…Donno what is so blessed about liking a girl and she hates you…all you can do is keep looking at her…well you can call that being blessed,if you keep looking at her,instead of sleeping in the class 😛 Well no ,no that sounds too specific!

7) How long do you intend to wait for someone you really love?

Well,you know,i am not like the English prince,to get married to my dream girl,when all my hair has turned white and my teeth are made of gold and rubies and have my sons in their 20s attend my wedding,we call that 60th anniversary celebration here! I think i will say,till i know ,i have no chance…But well,where there is a will,there is a way…Where there is money,there is a will…No,i am getting this all wrong..but i think that is a fact..

8) If the person you secretly like is already attached, what would you do?

Well,well…who is seeing into me…no i will switch my comp off,right now…well trying…but not wishing her on her birthday,doesn’t help you any…but still,never get phone numbers..I have learnt that lesson long time back..it sucks…it is better to be ignorant.. 😛 and find a girl who likes you as much as you like her…[tough business people…should be careful,of those ” arranged marriage” villians around you…i am hardly 17 and they come and ask my mom,what is your son doing,no that doesn’t mean i am going to shave my moush now…]

9) If you like to act with someone, who will it be? Your gf/bf or an actress/actor?

HA since,i am single…well i don’t mind being paired with a girl and then developing some chemistry…No,i don’t mean arranged marriages[if you didn’t read the above answer do it now!!]…but well,if i get a chance to act with the girl i love…ha..

10) What takes you down the fastest?

Ha when they get angry they are cute..but you need to be on guard,especially when they don’t say,”i will slap you”..a lot of people would love to slap me,but well,they still can’t get their hands on me 😛 

11) How would you see yourself in ten years’ time?

Well 😉 Hopefully with her 😉 or her…or her…

12) What’s your fear?

never finding a girl..well but that won’t happen 😛 

13) What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?

a very nice person 😛 

14) Would you rather be single and rich or married but poor?

Stupid question,if you say i will be poor,you lack the encouragement…blah blah.. i am changing it..

How did you fall in love,the first time? 

Ha yes,i want to flaunt ,that i had a crush when i was in LKG again 😛 Well don’t know,she used to be most popular girl in the class and fell for her…knew that it was crush later[well the word i mean!]…and i was so damn jea of her too,cause she was teachers’ pet 😛 

15)What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?

See the time and calcuate how many hours of sleep i have had and by what time i need to ready 😛 

16) Would you give all in a relationship?

Well,in a relationship ,acceptance is the key i think…i don’t get along with people who don’t take me for what i am…

17) If you fall in love with two people simultaneously, who would you pick?

Ha,well it depends..but guess i have made that choice[ha,well only one person on eartj,except me knows what i am talking about 😀 😀 😀 ]…

18)Would you forgive and forget, no matter how horrible a thing that special someone has done?

Well everything has a price…and while i said we need to forgive,it isn’t easy either..i don’t forgive people unless,i see that they deseve to be forgiven…or when i have something to gain…As for the special person…ya,well i will…i will forget everything about the present too…i still like her…ha the butterfly 😉 

19)If you get to go back in time and fall in love all over again, would it still be with the same person?

Can i try,that out,cani have a time machine?

20) List 6 people to tag:

Aarti,

Dinesh,

Archana, 

Sameera,

Priya(when you come back,i want you to do this!!) 

Dinu
