Confusing thing about people and love

I have been putting off this post for quite some time and I think its time I should write it and publish it as well.

Everyone of us wants someone who pays attention, is caring, concerned, won't be a jerk and really really likes us in the beginning. This applies truly to either sexes, guys might want to prove how macho they are and how these are all just nonsense things which they don't care about. Even they want these things and probably more than what other girls/guys do.

The relationships in the past have had a bearing in the mindset that you don't really trust anyone and find it extremely difficult to get over your ex. Everyone goes through these things. Getting over an ex, especially when the relationship has been long is hard to do. Takes time, a lot of it.

Despite, all this I fail to understand why some people don't realise that another person has these qualities that they require. They would give you proper attention, care for you, love you, help you always, b…

Link : Today's news channels!

Found this hilarious piece after my blog hopping spree. I'm certain you all would have heard the nursery rhyme "Jack and Jill"? Yeah. So how would the news channels in India report it? NDTV is used here as an example but it does apply to nearly all the channels. Enjoy!

India - travels in my nightie: Two persons hurt in climbing mishap

My least favourite word is...

...WHATEVER, which many of you are aware irks me beyond limits. So much so, people found it amusing for it to be used around me just to get a reaction from me. And its not that its used in only one context of "end of topic" but also as a method to dismiss a question asked.

Now I realised last week that am not the only one who finds the word annoying. Apparently, 47% Americans surveyed do too. Its weird in two respects :

1. My view point is shared with Americans too! I wonder if I should feel offended :p
2. The source is a college telephone poll so having them agree with what I feel is somewhat absurd for me.

The other words which made it to the most annoying list are "You know" , "It is what it is" , "Anyway" and "At the end of the day". Why would anyone be annoyed with "At the end of the day" ?! Oh I have another one "my bad" , whatever happened to a simple "SORRY"!?

Mumbai please vote this time!

Image
Maharashtra goes for Assembly Elections on 13th October which would determine who governs the state post 22nd October when the results would be declared. Post 26/11 Mumbai has had the Lok Sabha elections to show their need of "change" but sadly a dismal turnout of 43% turnout reflected the indifference that existed in the Mumbaikars attitude.

Hopefully things improve this time around and people go out to vote this time. There is a one day bandh as well so you can't complain about work commitments. Spotted an image courtesy The Comic Project and Arun Raveen.

Poem : Real Me

Its been sometime since I wrote a poem and expressed what I felt. The feeling has changed so the genre of my poem has changed too. Its not a rhythm kind of a poem, just linking what I felt. Here it goes.

There is emptiness inside me,
There is hollowness inside me.

Feelings are just few and far between,
One being love, the other being sorrow .

You moved on, but I couldn't,
You lost the love, but I didn't.

You want me to move on, I can't,
You want me to not care, I can't.

You don't seem to care,
I wish I could do the same.

Must Read : Karan Johar is raped by MNS

Karan Johar produced, Wake Up Sid, hit the theaters yesterday but as with many other big movies in the past, it was caught in a controversy. Controversy called petty politics. Raj Thackeray run MNS created a furore with the movie mentioning Mumbai as Bombay. (Yeah that's the reason!) So much so KJ had to apologise to the politician in person and make a politically correct statement of how it could have hurt people's sentiments.

Hansal Mehta, a director himself wrote an account of what happened to him when his misinterpreted dialogue got him into a world of trouble. Read it here, Passion for Cinema.

The comments section led me to a very interesting post by Ratnakar Sadasyula, where Rabindranath Tagore's legendary poem titled "Where the mind is without fear" is shown to have relevance even today. Read it here, Sleepless in Cyberia.

Hope you enjoy both the posts and spread it along with commenting it. It doesn't take much time to express what you think and even l…

5 songs of the week

These are the five songs that I've been hooked to over the week :

• Enrique - Somebody's Me
• Unkle Bob - Swans
• P. Diddy - Everything I do
• Grant Lee Philips - Mona Lisa
• Massari - Real Love

Video : Motley Crue - If I die tomorrow

I've gotten fond of this song for some days now. Relate to the words and feel combination with rock makes it great to hear.



Hope ya'll like it too.

WTF is it with...

..guys holding hands?




















I should make it clear before hand that am not a homophobe. I respect LGBT community and their fight for the rights that they truly deserve.

Coming back to the point, I have seen many guys holding hands while crossing the road or walking about leisurely. Well I presume they're not gay but why the F*** do you have to hold hands and move about? Many guys holding pinkies too!

You know that's all fine and acceptable until you see guys holding pinkies! Yup, holding pinkies. I mean seriously, what are you trying to do and get out of that situation? An equally stupid scenario is when two guys are holding hands and checking out girls! How heterosexual is that!

I would have to accept that I've been in such a place where this guy in my college held my hand while we were going to the college office. And it was the first year and within a second I remove my hand and asked what he was doing! He laughed it off thinking I was kidding. Mr. S, (aka condom!) I wasn't …

Job Requirement : "Good communication skills"

Image
Ever since college exams got over I've been looking for jobs. Some companies contact you directly via e-mail, some have consultants who call you/e-mail you and then there is the biggest bunch where the jobs are left for the interested job hunters to look over on job portals.

They have pretty much the same requirement in a candidate with the usual ones being :
1.Confident
2.Able to work in a team
3.Excellent communication skills.

The first two aspects are well and good and very much necessary but the third aspect is quite missing in the candidates and the companies alike. Any sense of sentence formation, spelling and grammar is totally invisible. I captured screenshots of three such instances (I got lazy to look for more).

Buy and Sell Gold

The economy is bad which affects the share market as well. The stock prices go low and you lose investment in huge amounts but you know where there is very little chance of losing out? The commodities exchange. Especially the buying and selling of gold. Currently the price of Rs.14,700(per 10grams) which is quite an expensive buy and its something that would most likely appreciate rather than see the red.

A site that deals in buying and selling of gold is Goldcoinsgain . Its a Century City, California headquartered company which has a long and illustrious history in gold coins and gold bullion .They would provide commendable assistance to you in making a decision keeping in mind the global economic conditions be it an oil spill in the middle east or currency problems.

They have great service of delivering gold to you right where you want it, even if you are California based or anywhere in the country. So you could be a single person or a family or part of an institution you can always …

Sach Ka Saamna : Will it work?

Image
Indian Television is set to copy another American show, its called 'Sach ka saamna' and would air tonight (15th July) at 10:30PM. Its a copy of the American TV show 'The Moment of Truth' which is actually not an original concept in itself. Its a copy of Colombian, Nada más que la verdad ("Nothing More than the Truth") which has been exported to 46 countries in total. But we're aware of the American version which aired some months back on Star World(Tuesday 9:30PM slot).

The concept of the show would be to answer a set of questions to win the jackpot of Rs.1 Crore. The contestant would have gone under a polygraph test prior to the actual airing to check his responses and the reaction of his blood pressure, pulse, respiration etc etc on the very same questions. If the answers match to the ones given before then the contestant stays on. If on the other hand, the answers do not match the contestant loses out and goes back home. Also he/she can go out by opting…

Another Untitled Post..

Following my previous poetic experience and the appreciation that I received through it, I thought I should put up another one. This one I thought about last night and although it isn't as good as the previous one but truly reflects what I feel.

So here I go.


Always thought big serious relationships were hoax,
Always thought real love was an imaginary thing,
Always thought those words they use are too mushy...

Now I sit here waiting to hear those 3 mushy words,
From the one I truly love,
Wanting a serious relationship lasting forever and ever...



Not really a poem but its not like am running a poem writing competition in here!

Btw, how did you guys find it?Like it?Don't like it?

Football in the Park and the problems!

Many of the regulars would be aware that am a footie fanatic and to those who are new,welcome and you should know am a football fan.

So yeah we play football in our colony park almost every evening and its good fun except for when I lose and the muddy playing area.

First of all I would like to describe the parks situation in my colony.There are two parks right opposite each other.One is a small park with swings for kids and a walking area for right around it.The other park is where we play which is bigger and also has a sidewalk around it and a partition between it so we play football on one side and there are 2 badminton courts on the other side. So I hope you get the picture.

Now to the problems.For some weird reason unknown to me,the oldies prefer to walk right through the middle of the park when we're playing rather than using the sidewalk.One particular lady who does this everyday explains walking on the grass is good for the body.What confuses me about this reasoning is the fac…

Its been long I blogged here and blogged about my personal life too. Although am suffering from a writers block + laziness so all my intended blog ideas are still pending. Today I will break the laziness pattern and also blog about my personal life and enter a new territory of writing called POETRY. I've never done poetry so spare the criticism if it isn't perfect or even close to being good. But here we go...





Even though we are not sailing smoothly,
Even though there is no perfect connection,
Even though there is no telepathy.

Days go by without hearing each others' voice,
Months go by without seeing each other,
Messages are the only source of contact.

Despite all this I love it when you laugh,
Love it when you giggle,
Love it when you call to say you're scared,
Love it when we argue over stupid things.

You can make anyone laugh with your laugh,
You can make anyone smile with your words,
You can make anyone feel comfortable in your presence,
You can make anyone feel nice about thei…

Who wants to be a millionaire?

I came across this video while checking out my RSS feeds. We have the Indian version of 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire' in the form of 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'.

I think KBC has had only one Crorepati in its life (counting only the adults version and not the kids version and Rs.1 Crore as the ultimate bounty) in the form of Harshvardhan Navathe.



I like this video because the guy is just too smartly confident and it makes you smile.Enjoy :)

National anthem before a movie?

Image
The first movie that I saw outside Delhi was Gupt in Jaipur.My favourite Hindi suspense movie although it was ruined by my brother because he told me who the killer is in the intermission because he happened to know it and wanted the suspense ruined for me too.(Yeah older siblings can be like that!) This was when I was very young,maybe when I was 10.

The second experience happened when I watched Taare Zameen Par in Mumbai. Me and Parinita went for the movie at Chitra. The tickets were cheap as it was the morning show(unlike Delhi,godamn ripoffs here!) and the seats were good and comfortable too.

The usual waiting for the movie to start was taking place when suddenly the national anthem started playing and everyone stood up.I was confused what was happening.There is no national anthem played here before a movie,heck the last time I heard the national anthem before me was in school! Not only was the national anthem playing something new for me but also the feeling of seeing everyone stand…

3 things you would do if you were the CM

This year there are elections being held in many many countries over the world.World's largest democracy,India, is going for the general elections too. So how about keeping in sync with the politics and welfare of the people saga,we have a list of something to that effect.

The idea of the list is to put together five things that you would do for your state/city as a chief minister/mayor in the order of preference.You have to mention the city/state that you represent and state the 3 things you would do.That's it.And ofcourse tag someone.

So here it goes :

City : New Delhi,India
Improve the transportation system which is a huge mess.
Promote usage of public transport instead of dependence on respectively owned automobiles or even usage of carpools.
Security for women.Its a very important thing for me.

That's my 3 most important tasks in order of preference if I were the chief minister.

I tag Parinita, Karishma and Esha.If more of you want to use it then that'd be great,just leav…

Stop Eve Teasing

Image
I stumbled upon a page yesterday of an organisation called BLANK NOISE,which works for prevention of Sexual Harassment which is prevalent in our male dominated society.In the wake of the Afghan government legalizing 'Marital Rape' which allows the husband to rape his wife.This is highly derogatory for the females all over the world.This is how me,a male feels,just imagine how outraged the ladies would be.

Coming back to the Indian society.I don't think it would be very hard to think of a time if you've seen eve teasing taking place.Be it groping or just plain old stalking/staring/finger pointing.You could have been at the receiving end or you could have been a witness or you could have been the disgusting+filthy+pervert+a$$hole who actually did something as horrible as this.


This group/organisation aims at creating awareness about what to do in such situations.People can report any events of eve teasing and what they did about it or didn't do anything about it.Just w…

BJP : Bhay Ho!

Its been some time since I updated anything here.Now everyday you turn on the television to catch up on the news events of the day it starts off with the Lok Sabha Elections,continues with the Lok Sabha Elections and ends with the Lok Sabha Elections.

This is an advert which recently aired on national TV by BJP going against Congress' copyrighted 'Jai Ho' campaign.Its catchy but to be honest but on the point of who I would vote for,it won't change and it might never will.I don't preach religion!

Anyway,here is the video.If its not available then let me know in comments please,BJP's online activists are "working really hard" to take them down!

Very awesome video

I saw this video on Interim thoughts.

Its a very smart and innovative take at things that matter to us or don't matter to us.

WTF's : Television bill for the dead and more..

Image
WTF Section was missing last week due to busy schedule.However,I promised an update and you would get an update!


WTF NEWS!


Of all things possible there is one thing that is never late and never goes missing too,and that's the BILL.Be it for telephone,TV or any other thing imaginable.However there can be the odd mistake and a bizarre one at that.

This bizarre mistake happened in Berlin,Germany where German broadcaster GEZ sent a letter to a certain mathematician by the name of Adam Ries.Adam Ries,an algebra expert,purchased the house in 1525(yes that's 484 years ago).The letter to pay the dues for TV and Radio usage was received by the owner of the club which was started in the honour of the math wiz.

Ries died in 1559 and the company was intimated of their error but still to make sure it wasn't an excuse by the club,the company sent another reminder.

Oh while we're at it,it would be interesting to note that TV was invented in 1923!

Happy Holi : Not so much!

Image
Just when you think the festivals bring together people and create peace and harmony,there comes along an event which shatters your belief and saddens you with the state of things in our country.Holi is the festival of colours and water and laughter for kids and adults both.

One person,however,didn't seem to enjoy these things.CNN IBN reports a fisherman in Shahdol,Madhya Pradesh shot at an 8year old little girl for an innocent act of spraying colour.The 8year old girl got injured at the time but now she's to be recovering.

The villagers beat up the fisherman before handing him over to the police.All this highlights the pathetic condition of the law in our country and how awful as human beings we've become to go to such low levels.I know some of you might say,"..we wouldn't do anything like that" but being a grown up haven't you been peeved at the kids for being so excited about Holi that they started throwing balloons even before Holi?Don't forget you …

Earth Hour : Switch off that light!

Image
WWF(World Wildlife Fund for nature) is an environmental organisation working for the betterment of all sections of nature.From flora,fauna to fighting against global warming.Global warming is a phenomenal issue which would affect our future generations unless we act now.For this cause,WWF has urged the citizens of the world to switch off their lights for one hour on 28th March.

Earlier the event used to be on a smaller scale but this time they're trying for one billion votes.A vote here means one household switching off their lights for the entire hour.The data compiled thereafter would be presented to world leaders at Global Climate Change conference in Copenhagen.

Just when you think that this is all crap and no one does anything?There is startling piece of data which would change your perception.In 2007,(when the movement started) 2.2million people in Sydney switched off their lights.And in 2008,the number increased to a whooping 50million and included the likes of Golden Gate Br…

Notification : Apology

I would like to apologise to my readers about the missing WTF SECTION post for today.Have been really busy with things but promise to have a post next Sunday.However,do look forward to some posts in the mid-week.

Warner Bros Poll : Really Funny!

Image
Warner Bros will be launching another movies and entertainment channel in India on the 15th of March.Warner Bros. already have a blockbuster movie channel in the form of HBO in the country but their new brand wouldn't clash with HBO and would cater to the movie buffs with TV series and movies that go amiss.They would bring back Joey and Whose line is it anyway and movie lineup was highlighted with Lord of the Rings.

However the point of this post is to highlight the poll they are running on their website.

The poll question is : IN A DANGEROUS SITUATION,WHO WOULD YOU WANT BY YOUR SIDE?

Now,the options make the poll funny.The options read :
a) Keanu Reeves
b) Vin Diesel
c) Kevin Costner
d) Harry Potter

I understand about Keanu Reeves(Matrix Trilogy), Vin Diesel(Too fast too furious,Fast and the Furious) and Kevin Costner's(3000 Miles to Graceland) machoness but why the bloody hell would I want a kid with a wand in his hand to save my ass?!

Who would be your pick?Leave a comment.

502 hits Gmail

Image
Google's mail service,Gmail had been down earlier for a significant amount of time causing panic amongst the reliable mail service which started 5 years back.

Google is the ultimate service provider as the ratings have been showing with their dominance in search engine business.However,Gmail's downtime has not gone down well with Google lovers.

Their other services such as Reader,Blogger etc. were working fine.The reason is still unclear and so is the time it was down for.

The page encountered a "502 Server Error" which despite many refreshes wasn't working.


Yahoo or Hotmail anyone?



UPDATE: There was an outage of two and a half hours in parts of Asia,North America and Europe.The reason is still being investigated by Google authorities.

WTF's: Boy married to dog and more..

Image
From today onwards I would be starting a section on my blog entitled "WTF Section"(Yeah couldn't be easier than that!) where I would post some of the weirdest,most absurdest,most bizarre events that took place during the week but were secluded to the sides of the newspapers. This section would be updated every Sunday at noon(IST).


WTF NEWS

A little boy in Bhubhaneshwar,Orissa was married off to the neighbors' dog to prevent him from being killed by wild animals.

Now you might want to know why was he wedded off when he's underage?(let's try and ignore the fact that he's married off to a dog for now!)

The simple reason,he developed a tooth on his upper gum! The villagers apparently believe this is a bad omen and the tribal gods will bless the child and ward off any attacks by tigers and other animals in the future.

The local priest performed the marriage ritual at the temple by chanting Sanskrit hymns.The "marriage" was attended by around 150 tribals.

Cricket : Adam Voges fabulous catch

Image
I never imagined there would be a cricket related post here on my blog but then again classic events cannot be ignored,right?

Australia played New Zealand today in a T-20 game.At a crucial juncture of the game(19th over to be precise),Adam Voges took a fabulous catch on the rope.



For all those who are cricketically challenged,if you cross the boundary line then its six runs and the catch is counted invalid.For it to be a valid catch the person/fielder has to be on the playing field.As you see in the video,Voges isn't in total control of his body and is leaning towards the boundary which would have made it six runs.So he throws the ball in the air and returns to the playing field to catch it back,thus making it totally valid. Its a fabulous catch and deserves to be counted for great plays.ESPN are you listening?

Billu Barber : Reviewed

Image
Billu Barber is the story of Billu played by Irfan Khan who is a small time barber based in Budbuda village.Income is meager as is displayed by Billu and his wife Bindiya(Lara Dutta) who somehow sustain and Billu has to keep convincing his kids' principal for more days to pay the school dues.

Things change for Billu when the country's biggest filmstar,Sahir Khan(Shahrukh Khan) reaches their village on a movie shoot.Word gets around that Billu and Sahir used to be childhood friends.This changes the attitude of the other villagers who used to mock Billu for his incapabilities to respect and school even offering to pay for their kids' education out of their fund,only with something in return - chance to meet Sahir Khan.

Bindiya loves the attention that she gets from other ladies and has no qualms about his "friendship" with Sahir Khan.Billu on the other hand gets caught up in further complication as the shoot nears completion and he still hasn't met Sahir Khan.

IF Slumdog Millionaire had an Indian director

Image
Slumdog Millionaire has had resounding success all over the world.Award nominations everywhere be it for the music or the direction.The movie has 10 Oscar and 11 Bafta nominations.It has had its share of criticism from Bollywood as well as the media.


There have been many comments about the recognition and success of the movie due to its Hollywood status despite the Indian/Bollywood setting.Which has raised the question of its level of success had it indeed been made by an Indian director.



WARNING : Text below might reveal the plot of the movie.So people who aren't from this planet and have been living in a cave for the past few weeks and haven't seen the movie and plan to,then don't read as yet.Read after you have seen the movie,its a must watch.

Chetan Kunte v/s NDTV

I have had a dismal evening courtesy the story that I first read on Desipundit and then covered on various blogs and condemned by various bloggers.

I would not like to go on the nitty-gritty of the situation right now but would ask you,as a reader,to click on the following link and check what other esteemed bloggers had to say of how NDTV used its might as a media conglomerate to overpower a blogger about NDTV's irresponsible media coverage during the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai.

Paris Hilton changes British PM

Image
Yep! That's what I wanted to say after reading what Paris Hilton had to say while launching her new TV show Paris Hilton's British best friend.

I'm sure many of you would be aware of Paris Hilton and her knowledge levels or lack of it for that matter.She however went a step further this time.

She thinks British PM and the address at 10 Downing Street has been taken over by chef Gordon Ramsay!Yep Gordon Ramsay of the Hell's Kitchen fame is the British PM as per the hotel heiress.

She was in London to promote the show and told reporters “I love Britain. London is my favourite city in the world.” But when asked if she knew the PM, she replied, “Yes, it’s Gordon Ramsay, isn’t it?"

And that's not the end of it.She has no clue what PINT means and/or what ESSEX is either.
"No, I’ve not heard of a pint — what it that? Is it beer?” is what she had to say.

I have to ask my readers now,do you know who the British PM is?Do Not Google!

Worst Hindi Lyrics of all times

Image
Remember those times where legendary artists like Sahir Ludhiyanvi,Anand Bakshi,Gulzar etc would produce memorable classics with their lyrics for classics like Mere dil mein aaj kya hai,Hum tum ek kamre mein band ho,Is mod se jaate hain to name a few.This does not go to show that all songs were with fabulous and memorable lyrics.

There have been instances where the lyrics have just made the song "memorable" but for the wrong reasons.Some of them are mentioned below and I tried to rank them in order of their annoyingly funny nature but wasn't able to do that as many of them are neck and neck.Remember,they are just the worst lyrics and not dependent upon their videos and/or music. So without further ado lets get on with it.

FA Cup on Indian TV
